How the seasons fly by! It’s already summer, and time for me to see what wonderful creation world-famous fashion designer Vivienne Levandi has conjured up for me.

My dear friends, I have been doing a lot of soul-searching lately and I am worried that there is something about me that maybe I should change. I have been living with it for quite some time now, since October last year, actually. It’s not something I was particularly aware of myself but, since I … Continue reading Making My Mark

How could I be so so careless? I have been so caught up in my … Continue reading The Audience in the Mirror
Once I have figured out how to monetize this blog I am going to invest the proceeds and start a business building actual walk-in wardrobes. Because that is my real passion in life. The walk-in wardrobe is the ultimate 'My Space'. Every girl needs one. A place to relax, to be yourself. Somewhere to keep … Continue reading Wondrous Walk-in Wardrobes!
Man-bits. Let's talk about them! We all have them and we all worry about what to do with them when we are 'en femme'.
