Nom or Vom

Another recommendation, this time they would like to stay anonymous. (Which I sort of get) but apparently their love for this man runs deep. (Which I sort of get too) 

Not for everyone, this weeks Nom or Vom is actually a really lovely man, (I've served him dinner a couple of times) but has a reputation for being well 'ard. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you, 
Danny Dyer.

What do you think?

Danny Dyer,

Nom or Vom?

Loose Women, Judy Finnigan and Rape

I have to admit that I am not a fan of the programme Loose Woman but it seems that yesterday they managed to create a huge stir, or rather Judy Finnigan did, during a segment about CONVICTED RAPIST, Ched Evans.

The segment, which I have now watched, was a discussion about whether Ched Evans should be able to go back to being a footballer after serving his time. (Well, 2 years of his time anyway, but that is a WHOLE other post)

Judy Finnigan when asked, made the point that "He had served his time" as well as going further with the following comments.

"The rape and I am not, please, by any means minimising any kind of rape - but the rape was not violent. He didn't cause any bodily harm to the person"

I'm going to jump in here and say, actually Judy, what you are exactly doing here IS minimising rape. You are categorising rape, you are trivialising rape and you are WRONG. There is not differing kinds of rape, rape is rape.

She also then went on to say. "It was unpleasant, in a hotel room, I believe, and she was - she had far too much to drink, and you know, that is reprehensible, but he has been convicted and he has served his time.



Let's throw in some victim blaming while we are at it. So it was a non violent rape and the victim had been drinking?

(I'm surprised no-one discussed a full pardon or back pay for him)

I understand now that Judy Finnigan has apologised for what she said, but it absolutely DISGUSTS me that it was even said in the first place.

How in 2014 can ANYONE still feel this way?

Whether violence played a part in a rape is IRRELEVANT.
Whether alcohol had been consumed is IRRELEVANT.




I am so angry with you.

It has also diverted away from the point originally made on Loose Women about whether Ched Evans should be able to go back to his role as a professional footballer when he gets out.

I would like to hear YOUR views on the subjects, both on Judy's comments and whether Ched Evans should be able to go back to football.

Let me know.

Layering with Fashion World

Autumn is always a difficult one for me.

I don't want to stop wearing my summer clothes JUST yet, but I am turning a funny shade of blue as the temperature begins to drop and APPARENTLY it is not socially acceptable for me to hibernate. (RUDE)

So what do I do? I begin to layer up. So far this autumn, apart from a few days that have made me want to rethink the whole hibernation rule, I have been able to add tights to dresses and throw on a cardigan.

I am a lover of cardigans, (partly because of the "I hate my arms" thing and partly because cardigans are just so snuggly) and I always find in the Autumn that cardigans and wraps are my equivalent of a duvet coat, (which is still not a "thing" unfortunately)

The great thing about layering with cardigans is that you can find every type of cardigan from something oversized and fluffy to something delicate and formal. Being a fan of the 50's style dresses I have fallen in love with THIS cardigan,

which is by Voodoo Vixen and available from Fashion World, here. Voodoo Vixen Retro Kitty
this is a fab cardigan that I could wear to an event over one of my summer dresses. (Yes, I am going to buy it, I'm selling it to myself here)

Another smart way to layer is with this Joanna Hope Faux Fur trim Cardigan, available here Joanna Hope

This has a smart casual feel to it, warm and stylish. WIN.

Another favourite of mine has to be the cape. It is the socially acceptable way to walk around in a blanket, and this is a stylish blanket. (Yes, I want it) This Diamante knitted cape also by Joanna Hope is available here Joanna Hope knitted cape

If you throw in a hat, a scarf and some thermal underwear while you are at it, I think we can make it through Autumn easily. For me, layering is the way to go and I prefer to wear more layers in the autumn as the season changes (avoids using the words seasonal transition)

Next stop, Winter and ALLLLLLLLLL the knitwear.

If you want to have a browse of Fashion Worlds knitwear, you can find more here.


How do you wear Autumn? Are you a fan of layering or are you more of a hibernation person too?

Let me know.

Positive Monday

I have mentioned before that I LOVE Mondays,  ----- > Monday Monday and I DO.

(Mondays is when the little darlings go back to school)

but I GET that Monday is not exactly a fresh start for everyone, and for some of you. Monday is the worst buzz kill ever.

So we are going to be so positive that we positively ooze positivity, we are going to be so positively positively positive, we will piss positivity and fart rainbow coloured glitter ( I really want to be able to do that, I think it would be awesome)

I want everyone to comment, (I know that for some of you, this is unknown territory, but it is ok, it won't hurt, I promise.) and tell me ONE THING that is going to be amazing today. I don't mind if it what you are having for dinner, something you are planning on doing or booking, but let us start today off right.

I will even start.

Monday is going to be great because I have a new client starting today and I am looking forward to working with them.

How about you?

Share with me something positive, in fact share it with everyone. I love seeing people being positive and happy and if one person shares some positivity, hopefully it will spread and we can all have a great day.

What do you think?

What is going to be positive in your Monday?

Let me know.
