Other people’s kids, that is. How to be good with your own? Can’t help you there. I am aware of a new demographic among my peers: those who do not have children when absolutely all their friends do. I’ve never had a jolly group of friends with whom I constantly socialised so this was never a problem for me, but if you… View Post
This is my tupperware drawer. On first glance it looks quite organised but in fact it is a disaster. Most things don’t have lids. If they do, the lids are broken. A fair amount of my “tupperware” is in fact old takeaway plastic boxes. If you do find a box of a suitable size with a suitable lid in which… View Post

Ever since meeting a billionaire’s wife who only ever wore black when she went out at night, I swore to do the same thing. I’ve been doing this for getting on for two years now and it works an absolute treat. Sure, she’s wearing Dior and I’m wearing Comptoir Des Cotonniers, but who cares.

But in case you are unsatisfied with your daily complexion fixer, let me recommend to you my favourites. They are all light, but give good coverage. If you’ve got a major zit, you’ll probably need extra concealer. I… View Post
