Spreading the happiness!

I don't normally like magazine articles that have the "50 things to do before your 30" or "100 things everyone should know" - I find them a little tiresome.

However, January's edition of Glamour has an article called "100 things to make you happy" and at the end of it - I felt good!

Glamour Magazine

So I thought I would pick some of my favourites and share them with you - spreading the happiness over this festive period!

At No.9 - Get a cute fix
"A Japanese study showed that seeing photos of baby animals made us happier and perform better at work" (the performing better at work bit - made me giggle, I don't get it?!)

Under the section "Things that make you smile" I love:
No.12 "An old couple holding hands"
No.13 "The window of a patisserie"  (Not all do this for me it needs to be in Belgium or France)

Sad but true:
At no. 16 - Clean bed sheets (I don't need to explain this one...well maybe to the boys!)

Things to buy that will make you happy:
At No. 35 - Buy a 90's box set collection - "We're talking: Friends, Sex and the City, Dawson's Creek, Seinfeld, My So-Called Life, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Ally McBeal. '90s US sitcoms rock"

If you want a happier body try:
No. 60 - Stretch before bed
No. 61 - Sit up straight (this one I say to myself everyday after my back starts aching!!)

Apparently if you breathe this is one of the simplest ways to lift your mood (No.64) and laughing will melt away any anxiety (No. 65).

And finally "18 happy moments we heart" - these do it for me:
No.83 - The moment you put your "out of office"on
No.86 - When every piece of technology you own is 100% charged
No.100 - A day with no plans

If one of these has made you happy, then my work here is done.  If you have a "happy fix" that you would like to share, then please leave a comment for us all to read.

The Fringe Finale - Part 3

And so I did it.  I got the fringe and a restyle, trying to move away from the dead straight look!   My challenge now is to not use straighteners at all until the next cut - it's a hard one as I use them everyday.

A big thanks to all of you that have commented and offered advice, it's been another great interactive topic.

So here's the new look:

A little Christmas sparkle!

Earlier this month I wrote about the LBD, and how handy it is to have them in your wardrobe.  One of the easiest ways to jazz up an outfit for this party season is to have some fabulous accessories!

Why not add a little sparkle?  If you naturally have cool tones to your complexion then silvers and platinum will suit you better, if like me, you suit warm tones then try gold or bronze accessories to enhance your look.

Here are some great options for you to consider - Go on why not sparkle this Christmas!

Fringe Benefits - Part 2

Ok the debate on whether I'm should to have a fringe is continuing - one of the best places to get feedback on an idea is Twitter - I knew the girls wouldn't let me down, so here are some of the comments:

Emma Cossey ‏@emma_cossey
@lovedbylizzi "I've had various fringes throughout the years. You'll need to get it trimmed regularly, but worth it!"

Kate Gurney ‏@Memoirswardrobe

@lovedbylizzi "I like having one, it suits my face, I look rubbish without. I strongly recommend batiste xl. I use it everyday xx"

Rachel Turone ‏@RachelTheHat

@lovedbylizzi "Do's: start longer, you can always trim more off. Dry shampoo is also a life saver and a good vent brush is your best friend.  Dont's: cut too short to begin with and don't be afraid to try it. It grows Mega quick! Lol xxx"

Comments where left on Part 1 too from; Pretty Little Things, Ruby, Carol, Hola and Rachel, simply click here to have a read of them.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been looking at every person who has a fringe and I didn't realise there were so many different styles.  So far I've been keen the deep V, but with so many variations to choose from I getting a little dizzy with it all!

Now if it's suggested that I should have a fringe that sits a little to the side, I'm liking this one that Reece has as it's femenine and stylish:

I really like Christina Ricci with a fringe - but I don't think I have the same size forehead to carry this one off!

Image from

Some say I look similar to Davina McCall - so here's Davina with a fringe, which doesn't look to bad.

Image from

My hubby thinks I look more like Kirsten Davis (or that's wishful thinking on his part!) however I can't find a pic with her in a fringe...

Image from should I really get one?

Last chance to give me any more advice as the appointment is booked!

Essential Kit: The LBD

At dinner last night, the subject of Christmas parties came up, and the usual chit chat of what a girl should wear when the dress code is not easy to decipher?  Within minutes we were all talking about the types of LBD's we have in our wardrobe.  LBD's?  The Little Black Dress, made famous by Coco Chanel.

Some girls have lots to pick from (I think I have about six or seven I can whip out at the last minute) - and some girls surprisingly have none!! 

A LBD can get you out of those last minute panics, they are simple to dress up or down, depending on the event - and for the most time it is guaranteed glam!

Now black may not be everyone's colour, but it's a "uniform" that is easlily understood and can help you ensure that you don't get it wrong.

Here are few to consider for the party season...

House of Fraser
JS Collections
Mesh Beaded Keyhole Dress
Was £130, now £78

House of Fraser

Black Sequin Mesh Sleeve Dress
