    1. The Nars lippy is so good, it never moves, and it doesn't bleed at all like other red lipsticks.......In fact after a late night out and being a very bad person I didnt take my make up off and just collapsed into bed.....prob to do with the vast wine consumption, but in the morning when I looked in the mirror, which was pretty 'horrible', I still had my red lips on!! xx

  4. I have a pair of grey flannel wide leg trousers tucked away somewhere but they need heels and I so want to wear them with flats but I know it's not possible and I will look so dumpy if i try. Gah. Off to dig them out and try anyway!

    1. I am the same Sue....vertically challenged, but, if I wear them with a chunky loafer, it does give me a bit of a lift. The trouble is its a laid back mannish ( so men dont wear heels, and if they did wouldn't we know about it!) look and you dont always want to be tottering around in heels do you? I am sure the ever resourceful Sue will make them work! Helen xx

  5. I do love masculine dressing! Sadly my job (and working from home) make it hard for me to rock menswear suits! :(
