  • Easter Truths

    THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 2010

    The office is a hum of activity and positively glowing on the thought that the Easter Bank Holiday is around the corner. But whilst we are all tucking into our choccie eggs on Sunday, do we ever think about where our delicious chocolate comes from?

  • Stand by your man?

    TUESDAY, APRIL 6, 2010

    Fresh from a four day Bank Holiday break I couldn?t wait to get back to my daily fix of celebrity gossip. Dominating the press still is Cheryl Cole; who continues to break out a fabulous new ?I?m doing fine? outfit every day. The latest snap shots of Cheryl forced the ALoL office in a raging debate often avoided by women for fear of shame and disapproval.

  • The shoes that dreams are made of

    FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 2010

    I am totally in love with Miu Miu's S/S 2010 collection. The prints, colours and dresses are a dream. And the shoes. Have you seen anything more lovely than these satin platforms dotted with swallows? I will ignore the price tag and the fact I will spill a drink on them or step in a puddle as soon as I put them on.

  • More about me!

    SUNDAY, APRIL 11, 2010

    Celebrity biographies make me laugh. I love reading about celebrities in magazines, watching films with them in and following their TV shows but surely that's enough? Clearly not. They want us to know about every single aspect of their lives. I can undertand the biographies of well lived celebrities like Madonna and Shirley Bassey to mention a couple but the likes of Sharon Osbourne, I haven't read her 2 books but I can only imagine she repeats everything we know already.

  • Fake Tan Foolery

    TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 2010

    I love spring – its official. The daffodils, cocktails after 6 and the glorious spring weather. But nothing makes me recoil in sunshine-induced horror more than the thought of going bare-legged in the next few months.

  • All the single ladies ....... oh.

    WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 2010

    I love my boyfriend. It's true. But sometimes I miss my single days where there wasn't a smelly snoring boy in my bed. When I could watch The Hills without judgement and take as long as like to get ready to go out. So when I saw this youtube clip of kids in the back of the car singing Beyonce's now legendary All The Single Ladies, I too felt the same as the little boy who was told he wasn't, in fact, a single lady.

  • Let them eat cake! (Anna Lou style)

    SUNDAY, APRIL 18, 2010

    While the rest of you were baking in the sun this Sunday I was having a little baking session of my own. As my Mother has been stuck in Singapore for the last few days after trying to get back from Oz, I found myself heading out to my parents' house in the countryside with Aidie and a couple of friends.

  • Telling it like it is...

    TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 2010

    On Friday evening I went to a friend’s leaving party before her amazing American road-trip. Camera flashes were everywhere and only after a candid shot had been uploaded online did I notice I had lipstick on my teeth. A quick de-tagging was in order of course, but all I could think of was how many people had a spoken to with my Dame Edna style lippy going on! .

  • Joe & The Juice

    THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2010

    Oxford Circus is not the place you’d think to hang out on your lunchbreak or to meet your friends – unless you’re planning a shopping trip to Topshop or you are, in fact, mental.  Tourists galore, chuggers, muggers, and horrid restaurants with pictures of the food on the menu, evil coffee chains and carphone warehouses are not fun to hang around, especially when just around the corner are the cobbled streets of Soho for boutiques, fun bars and restaurants.

  • What Lunch Where?

    FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 2010

    The big question in the ALoL office when lunchtime hits - what do I want for lunch? Our head office is the heart of London’s trendy West-End and we are treated to a delight of Soho’s finest sandwich shops and eateries, but you can get stuck in a sandwich-style rut.

  • Look of the Day - Playsuit

    MONDAY, APRIL 26, 2010

    I love looking at streetstyle pics and found this absolute gorgeous outfit on ELLE of this stylish New Yorker (a model I'm guessing with those pins). Now searching for the perfect playsuit to frollick in this summer. Looks great with the denim shirt as a makeshift jacket.

    Now the sun is shining down on London its time to hit London's parks. Here are my favourites London Fields:  perfect for people watching the cool kids, Greenwich Park: see the city from the top in panoramic view, Jubilee Gardens: beautiful at night when the city lights blink, Springfield Park: great for a lunchtime picnic, Kew Gardens: filled with pretty, sweet smelling flowers.
