Money Saving Tips
Spring forward? Yeah right! Daylight Savings Time (DST) falls on 30th March this year, and I'm already preparing myself for a miserably short day of sleep deprivation (it could be worse of course; poor mums wait all year for Mother's Day and when it finally arrives they end up losing an hour of sleep when the clocks go forward!).

I don't know about you but every year I make the same old resolutions just worded differently. For example, last year I decided I was going to take up jogging, the year before - join a gym, before that - walk the dogs twice a day. Well, you get the idea, I know I need to get more exercise but I never stick to any resolutions because they're all far too rigid to fit into the life of a full-time working mother of five. So this year, I'm keeping it simple. I have one resolution which, when adhered to, will dramatically improve my life - this year my one resolution is 'I will improve'.
As I am sure you are aware, the Versace collection for H&M has been revealed. This long-awaited marriage of couture and the High Street was greeted with loving approval by fashion's media elite, a usually fickle crowd who delight in the fall as much as the rise to grace. Maybe it is the enduring love for the house of Versace or the fact that these mass produced dresses are actually high fashion but every review I've read has been overwhelmingly approving of the line. As I am certainly not in the media elite circle, I can unbiasedly tell you the truth about this "purse-friendly" endeavour. It is gorgeous! While the collection is primarily focused on partywear, there are some nice jackets and separates to mix in with daily wear. Donatella was even generous enough to include jewellery and accessories into the budget friendly line.

A long, long time ago in a land not so far away it used to
be the case that I could eat and drink whatever I wanted and maintain a body
that was more Johnny Depp than Johnny Vegas.
But, as the years go by and the metabolism slowly grinds to a halt, there
comes a time in a man's life when he has to face the facts – notably, if
something isn't done soon I'll be rejected from internal flights in the
USA (if you know what I mean).
The cold, harsh fact that I'm cultivating a beer keg is
accentuated by summer and the layers of clothes that conceal any excesses are
no longer available to wear. I know the
weather's not been great recently but it's not cold and, fingers crossed, the
UK summer will start sooner rather than later which means exposing one's self
to the rest of London and, more importantly, London's female population.
