I’m not a huge fan of books, in fact its a rare occasion if you see me engrossed in a good novel unless I’m sunbathing on the beach or relaxing by the pool. However my fiance recently bought me a selection of Little Black Dress Books and I have been absolutely hooked. The first one I read was called The Batchalorette Party, a romantic comedy about a bride to be who has one or two secrets that all spill out on her drunken hen night. A great read for any girl who fancies a few chuckles to herself.
I have just finished my second novel in the collection entitled Sex, Lies and Online Dating. After reading the first few chapters a month or so ago I can’t say it really grabbed me but after reading the third chapter I could not put it down. The book follows two lives, a mystery writer called Lucy and an undercover detective named Quinn. They meet online and decide to set up a date, Lucy needs inspiration for her latest book and Quinn has a murder case to solve that the police think Lucy is linked to due to the relationship between her stories and the actual murders.
This novel isn’t half as funny as The Batchelorette Party but is such a fantastic read. You are right there as their relationship develops into much more than just a coffee date and you will be guessing who the murderer is the whole way through. I guessed who it was about 3/4 of the way through!
Sex, Lies and Online Dating is written by Rachel Gibson and is available at Amazon for the bargain price of £3.49 – a perfect stocking filler!

It is essential to invest in your Christmas gifts for others early, so making good use of the offers around at the moment is a good idea.

Perhaps some elegant cocktail or wine glasses would be a lovely gift, very practical and in red are ideal for the season. The Red Lustre Dot Cocktail Glass is £7 as is the Red Lustre Dot Wine Glass and ordering a set of 3 would benefit you as you would only pay for 2. Or how about this Fabulous 3 Tiered Mirrored Cake Stand, an original gift, decorative and also practical, costing £28.

Its always welcoming when your friends and family make an effort to decorate their home. Being at university my friends usually put their energy into decorating their bedrooms and the amount of cute cushions I have seen recently is ongoing… I really appreciate the beauty of cushions and how they can make a bland room look beautiful.
Laura Ashley has some fabulous cushions and with a sale on at the moment it’s the best time to invest. This Embroidered Cushion, now £15 down from £30 in burgundy is pretty and would look wonderful with deep coloured room décor such as midnight blues and purples. Or perhaps for lighter coloured bedroom décor this Square Damask Cushion costing £10.80 down from £30 would be better suited in cream.

We all love a good bargain, so this on line store www.hqoutletstore.com that provides a huge selection of name brands at an amazing reduced rate is probably a girls idea of heaven!
They have everything from Christmas gift ideas and skincare to jewellery and men’s fashion, there really is a huge range of bargains to search through. Its all surplus stock, end of line ranges and past seasons items that are available with superb deals.
I think the best bargain I managed to find on this site is these Diesel Hipper Jeans. I have never managed to bring myself to part with the hundreds of £’s that Diesel normally demand but £29.99 I’m definitely willing to pay, which is how much you can pick a pair up for – that’s a whopping 73% discount as they normally retail at £115.
I will also now be buying one of my favourite beauty products – YSL Touche Eclat from this site only as they are charging a mere £17.95 compared to the normal £24. I would be be crazy not too!!!
With Christmas getting closer and purse strings pulling tighter, I would recommend everyone visiting this site and with savings like these you never know you might find yourself having some spare cash to hit the new year sales – everyone’s a winner!

Skinny Bitch is a “no-nonsense, tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous” according to the book’s front cover, and that it certainly is. The New York Times best seller, written by Rory Freedman, a former model agent and Kim Barnouin, a former model has won critical acclaim and great publicity with even the famous such as Victoria Beckham photographed reading it.
The book’s hard hitting approach can work if you have strong will power and listen to things that are indeed true even if you cannot see the light at the other side. Throughout the duration of the book’s pages you will learn about the ingredients in food and why it is bad for you, what you should cut out and what you should eat. It’s impossible not to laugh, listen and be surprised whilst reading this book.
Get your copy from Amazon.co.uk for £3.99.
