My favourite blue blood is Princess Charlotte of Monaco and my favourite former commoner has to be the Princess Mary of Denmark - I am sure that I had a costume doll with that name once. Do you have a favourite? Princess Mary of Denmark Princess Letizia of Spain Princess Madeleine...

" ( Tabitha, Bourbon & Pearls) I previously spoke of my past life on the other end of the weight spectrum in this post where I confessed to having once been 40lbs heavier and regularly taunted on mean streets the world over with renditions of "who ate all the pies ?" And that was on a good...

Bakewell Tart It is a well know fact that tarts are easy; a sure thing and none so more than the Bakewell Tart. The sugary little strumpet has been pleasuring palettes since 1820. My somewhat lurid treat is a tribute to The Crimson Petal and The White, Michael Faber's book which reveals...

I must ask hubs to do a guest post some day on the trials that he has endured to keep me happy, but you know, men secretly relish keeping their alpha female happy, well it's that or a dirty house, no dinner and the locks changed. Running a few errands is but a mere bagatelle in comparison...

Even though the Incas deftly decorated their nails with eagles, culturally speaking, if you consider 'shite' daubed on nails 'art' we all know you'll be able to count how many brain cells you have on the hand that's drying. Get a grip. This stuff makes you sick, and not just from having to...

almost fell off my Osborne and Little upholstered bergere yesterday when I read that "sex in Edinburgh toilet' "sex in my camel coat" ( I don't think so mister, do you know the price of a Max Mara camel coat?) and "lusty sex" have led some interesting people to enjoy 16 pages or more at the...

Get FResh: I love how you know all this minutae, I'd have you on my team on University Challenge. I love old printing presses, it's all going to be pretty obsolete soon. Annie: Uhm, er well, I have two pairs - I know - I'm insane!
