Wrangler cellulite busting jeans.....myth or magic?

6.45a.m. this morning, text message from friend.  Had I heard about the new cellulite busting Wrangler  jeans?

 Well as much as I love her, I did think she had probably just woken up from some utopian dream where all women and their backsides were perfect. Besides I was more concerned that I hadn't had my first cup of tea yet.

So later on today, and a bit of investigation later, she was indeed spreading the love, because as we girls know, searching for the perfect jean is the most eternal sartorial quest.

LIZZIE Jagger is the model for these jeans which are infused with moisturising and slimming ingredients. There are three skinny leg styles, three waist cut's (low, medium, and regular) and three finishes: AloeVera, Olive Extract, and Smooth Legs all styles are £85.

 The Smooth Legs variety makes the biggest claim, and that is to help reduce the dreaded orange-peel texture of cellulite. It has algae extracts, retinol and caffeine, it has been clinically tested by the Institut Adriant in France, and after four weeks of wearing the jeans eight hours a day, five days a week over six weeks, 69 per cent of the panel claimed that the appearance of their thighs had improved! WOW.

I can't imagine the lovely Lizzie Jagger suffers from cellulite! Asos Wrangler jeans £85

Girls with jeans



 To find a pair that flatters your bum and make your legs great, we are apparently prepared to go to any lengths to find the perfect pair.

According to a survey last year by Which? magazine, the average person spends twice as long shopping around for the right pair of jeans as they do choosing a current account - almost 40 per cent of those surveyed spent up to three hours choosing jeans.

SO how do you find that X Factor jean? Getting it right can make you feel ready to take on the world!

Q. What is the best shade?

A: If you can only buy one pair of jeans make it very dark denim it is the most flattering.
However, if you like a more distressed finish find a pair with some lighter shading down the front of the thigh this can give you a much longer leg line!

 Q.I don't think i can wear skinnies?

A. Be open to trying new shapes, it's all about the styling, i.e. how you wear them. If you are a pear or hourglass wear a top that stops in the middle part of your upper thigh

Q. My legs that aren't quite long enough, hips that I would love to shave an inch from and a bottom that just about squeezes into size 30 jeans, my hunt revolves around finding jeans that will make me look thinner?

A. A relaxed fit, or straight leg are your best bet, with a bit more room in the hips and thighs, but not too baggy. Go for a dark wash.

Hourglass. Don’t hide…
Go ahead and show your figure! A pair of slim fit, straight jeans is a great way of accentuating those curves whilst still looking natural.

Full Curves. Easily handled…
Get a pair of slim fit, boot-cut jeans. Go for a darker wash.

Short Legs. 
Elongate your legs and accentuate you figure in full-length, skinny jeans.

Clean and lean starts tommorow....well maybe Monday?

Its funny because when i'm at work on my feet all day, I can usually make time for a couple of gym sessions a week, and if I'm really good sometimes three, I usually try to have a healthy-ish lunch too.

 Well this has all gone to pot this week, and if I'm truthful the week before too. You see I have had a few days holiday, eight days to be precise, I've not been away, just some me time, bliss!

The plan I had was to go something like this........

1.Make a healthy breakfast from my coffee table guru's book, the Clean and Lean diet by James Duigan, responsible for maintaining the likes of Elle Macphearson's bod, and a whole host of other impossibly fit and beautiful people. To be perfectly honest I'm sure that even if Elle stayed in bed all day eating Jammie Dodgers, Cadburys Fingers, and oh what's that other vice of mine, ah yes Cream Eggs, she would still look
amazing. Sadly the same cannot be said for me, as I have been indulging in all the above and more...SHAME on me, and now I am feeling the effects, podgy tum, flabby thighs,etc, etc.......

2. After healthy breakfast wait an hour or so, put on my best Sweaty Betty gym gear, and do one hour Pilates session, followed by a relaxing swim in the lovely Fitness First pool. Did it happen no, why, because
it is just so nice to be lazy once in a while, not to the point of slovenliness, n.b.what a great word that is, it was one of my Grandma's favourites, seldom used these days, guess you could make it hip and cool again in a bit of street rap?


 No, prob not!

 Anyway the remainder of the plan that never happened was as follows

3. Afternoon run up in the beautiful Cotswold hills.

4.  Spa type bath ritual, followed by an early night, with a cup of Neals  Yard camomile tea.perfect legs skin miracle

Roll on Monday, and thats just my midriff I'm talking about.

But in the meantime bring out my wonder product "This Works" perfect legs skin miracle will be slathered on over the next couple of nights, and when I return to work they will have never guessed my guilty secret.

Happy Holidays!!

GET READY,GET DRESSED.........Forget glasses!


So I have reached an age where I can't go out without my glasses.

My lovely sister in Bath along with my gorgeous niece made a last minute arrangement for us to meet up? We had lots of catching up to do so decided to go to Prezzo, they have a great deal at the moment, buy one main course and the second is half price! My dear Mum came along too, together with my daughter and her oh so nice boyfriend. Gosh, I forgot to mention my plus one "VHM"(The very handsome man in my life.)

Very handsome man was a bit late arriving due to work commitments, so we had started to order "Quelle Horreur" my glasses? Now normally the VHM would read the menu for me if dumb blonde accidentally/on purpose forgets her reading apparatus (you see there is a certain vanity attached to wearing these things, or at least used to be! But not any more..........

Enter geek chic these glasses are just so cool right now, and it just so happens that I am the proud owner of at least three pairs, and I tell you what every time I wear these babies I get so many compliments on them. Questions are asked, where did I get them? Are they Tom Ford? or the cult brand Moscot worn by Johnny Depp?  No I am thrilled to say, much to my delight, and the embarrassment of the VHM they are Primark, and I kid you not £2.

So whilst it is the trendy accessory to wear at the moment I try not to leave home without them.

That is unless the VHM gets to hide them first, as he keeps calling them GRANNY CHIC.........Quelle Horreur!!
