The Man Detox

It’s the New Year. Hey 2014, you’d better be a good one! I know a good few of you are going to be having something of a detox January. No alcohol, few carbs and a only the tiniest amount of sugar after the excesses and jollity of December. Cutting out caffeine? Downing the vegetable juice? Your [...]

Chic Networking presents the Liverpool Fashion & Lifestyle Event

On Sunday, December 1st, the Liverpool Hilton played host to the first ever Liverpool Fashion & Lifestyle Event. The project was put together by Chic Networking and Tiger PR to showcase the best of Liverpool’s boutique fashions and to allow local independent businesses to promote themselves and network with other businesses also in the fashion [...]

The Potential Partner Checklist

We’ve all done it. We’ve all not said yes to a date with a guy because he didn’t quite meet up with our expectations. You may have fancied him a bit but said no because you didn’t want to sit down for a coffee with him and then realise he wasn’t as funny or charming [...]

What If You Couldn’t Hold Hands in Public?

Ok, set the scene. You’re out at a coffee shop, having a catch up with your friend when a guy walks past. It’s like a scene from a movie; everything goes slow motion, he turns towards you and your eyes catch. He smiles with one corner of his mouth before looking away. He carries his [...]

The Revelation

As you darling readers may know, I had a break up recently. Well two months ago, which for some of you is a millennia, for some is almost like the blink of an eye. For me it’s still very very recent and really quite raw. He left to work on cruise ships for six months [...]

The Party Season Countdown!

It’s mid-September. The last quarter of the year is almost upon us. October, November, December – my three favourite months for various reasons, including Christmas cheer, cosy hot drinks and of course, it’s party season. I’ve already seen signs popping up outside restaurants around the Square Mile and online ads and emails have been flying [...]

Singles Nights…?

I was at work the other day, having a flick through one of those free magazines people hand out on the street when I came across an article that made me both chuckle to myself and die a little inside all at the same time. It was about singles nights. Not just any singles nights [...]

The Unlikeliest Couple in Hollywood?

Just casually browsing the internet’s bright and shiny gossip pages (when I should be doing more important things, mind) when I came across a piece about Cameron Diaz dating Jason Segel (you would know him from How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, other American comedy things…). What? Hey?! I was completely shocked! She’s a [...]

Rough Guide to Singledom for the Newly Single

Are you recently single? I am. Isn’t it just the best feeling? No. Not really. I’m in that time that everyone has in their life – that limbo period where you are stuck between wanting that person back and wanting everything to go away so you can be happy again. But being in this very confusing, up-and-down period [...]

Bed Head or Neatly Groomed?

SO on Sunday, my friend and I went to an old styley 1940s airshow in Essex. The men dressed up in uniform were all neatly groomed, with combed, bryl-creemed hair and nicely trimmed facial hair. It took me to a time where ‘bed head’ just meant you had honestly just got out of bed and had [...]

Royal Baby Mania!

July the 22nd 2013 was a momentous day for all of us Brits, and the rest of the world. Why? Because Kate Middleton gave birth of course! The evening of this long awaited day saw the rapidly rising impatience of the last week diffuse along with the heavy storms that diffused the heat wave and [...]

Planning a Wedding…Without a Groom!

 So one of the girls I work with was happily chatting about her upcoming wedding and the plans she and her fiancé had made for their special day. As we were chatting, the subject came up of women who plan their weddings before they’ve even got a man in their life. I’d seen this subject brought [...]

Andrea – Winner of The Voice UK

So last night saw the grand finale of The Voice UK. Though it has had much bad press and relatively low viewing numbers, I have actually quite enjoyed this series and followed the contestants all the way through. Though, no doubt, I have lost faith in the formula of the show and/or the voters of Britain [...]

Kimye’s Baby Name!

Rumours have been running rife since the birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby girl was born on the 15th of June as to what the couple would call their little bundle of joy. Apparently top of the list of names was North. Erm…what? Why? Evidently this was Kanye’s idea. There was also Kai [...]

Hi, I’m Madonna and I’m a fame-aholic

Madonna, once the world’s best-loved superstars, known for all-time classic songs such as Material Girl and Vogue. Once hailed as the greatest singer of her time, a star who’d be remembered for generations to come for her influence on music. Yet now she’s a middle-aged mum who should probably be concentrating on her family and [...]

Prince Harry’s Girlfriend…*sob*

Females across the country cried into their roasts this Sunday. It was the fateful day that Harry and Cressida’s officialdom was released in the press. It is indeed a sad, sad time for the women of Britain. After William and Kate set their relationship in stone by getting married almost two years ago now, we clung [...]

James Franco…GAY?!

‘Interior. Leather Bar’ is one of many entries into this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It is a re-imagining of a lost scene from the controversial 1980′s film ‘Cruising’ which delves deep into the gay underworld of leather bars and S&M. ‘Interior. Leather Bar’ is an exploration of sexual freedom and follows a man who finds [...]

A Drunken Excuse

The vast majority of people in this world have a set of moral codes that they go through life with. Whether they are religious or not, everyone has some kind of philosophy to live by and have a sense of what is right and what is wrong. A vast majority of people consider cheating wrong. [...]

Caught by a Catfish

Online dating. I must admit, I’ve never done it. It’s all a big mystery to me, and maybe that’s why the latest TV import from the US is baffling me even more. “Catfish” is a TV show that follows various couples who have met online and been in relationships for a few weeks or months, or [...]
