MIW Reviews – Sparkling Jewellery

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!   Ok so when have we ever needed an excuse to shop !! If you feel like treating yourself or a friend, this might just be the gift to mark the sparkle of any friendship.

They arrived gorgeously packaged in a bright orange bag full of goodies, the jewellery itself came individually packed into pretty mesh pouches inside a bright orange box. The quality was incredible and… Read More →

Which colours attract men

Get Your Colours Right for Dating Success By our self-help expert and dating coach Dr Pam Spurr In my new book on dating I’ve covered how the colours you wear say so much about your personality when you go on a date. Of course every fashionista knows how colour can make a killer impact, but for the rest of us it can be a mystery.  We know the basics like if you want someone to notice you then definitely wear red. But something like black can be either sexy and sensual or conservative. In my new dating guide I mention how when certain colours work better – or worse – at creating attraction and sexual chemistry. So don’t forget you definitely… Read More →

HOW TO TEST YOUR MAN!

What he says about other women and what it says about him as a potential partner!  By our self-help expert and dating coach Dr Pam Spurr If you’re single and dating, or maybe just met someone, it’s confusing about how to tell what a man’s really like. Because we know everyone puts their best foot forward at first. So is he as good as he seems? Sadly you might discover down the line he’s actually not so nice. With hindsight you realise you missed signals showing he wasn’t worth your time.  But now it’s too late, you’ve been hurt or it’s just not been a good experience. Many women tell me if only they’d seen it coming they wouldn’t have… Read More →

Anti Ageing Gloves

When I was young, I was fortunate that my gorgeous mum passed on a wealth of beauty tips & advice to me, some of which I only really started to understand as I grew older. One thing I’ll always remember her saying was, ‘make sure you cleanse, tone and moisturise’ and ‘look after these (rubbing her hands), they’re the first place to show signs your getting old’. Two years ago I became a mum to my beautiful daughter, my hands were constantly in water. I was either washing them, washing her, washing up or washing something! My hands got so dry the skin was splitting! I suddenly realised what my mum was talking about all those years ago, my hands were starting to… Read More →

Romance on hold – Parents at Work!

    The dynamic has changed with the arrival of E and me and husband are so exhausted the mere thought of a date night it sometimes makes us even sleepier. ‘Want the kids overnight mum? Sure!’ Then our plans for a wild night, to go out and paint the town red slowly fizzle out and we end up at the cinema scoffing sugary treats to stay awake and watch a film like ‘normal’ couples. Ahhhh  those 1st dates we used to have – remember them?   We secretly hope we have enough energy to get home and….well you know. We now retire to bed as soon as the house looks vaguely tidy (I can’t see this changing for another 15… Read More →

Rule your thoughts !!

7 Reasons to Stop Proving Yourself to Everyone Else You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough. You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already VALUABLE. Sometimes we try to show the world we are flawless in hopes that we will be liked and accepted by everyone, but we can’t please everyone and we shouldn’t try. The beauty of us lies in our vulnerability, our complex emotions, and our authentic imperfections. When we embrace who we are and decide to be authentic, instead of who we think others want us to be, we open ourselves up to realationships, real happiness, and real success. There is no need to put on a mask. There is… Read More →

Actually, I shouldn’t really say surviving, I should say enjoying – loving – embracing – happily living. All those worries I had, all those doubts about myself and… Read More →

Dr Pam: Not orgasmic

Dear Dr Pam, I’m 21 and lost my virginity on my last birthday. Second boyfriend later and I’ve still never had an orgasm. Even by myself I find it hard to orgasm, maybe because when I was younger I was discouraged from talking about anything sexual and my own shyness makes me think I shouldn’t be looking up how to solve this. I try to let go, especially when my boyfriend has a go but I’m that much of a control freak that it eventually gets too intense for me and I have to ask him to stop. He’s the first in a long time that hasn’t seen my lack of climaxes as a challenge, and we do have really… Read More →
