New Desire for Jesire

Copy-Kates the world over are crazily trying to get their hands on the stylish Jesire coat-dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge for her first solo public engagement - a preview of the Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery on Wednesday.

He's Not That Hot Anyway

On a scale of 0-10 how important is Valentine's Day to you? If you're a singleton like me then the answer is probably a resounding zero. It's even been mathematically proven that Valentine's Day is pointless - 14-02-12=0 - the numbers don't lie! But for every girl that really isn't bothered about it all, there's another who will be feeling totally and utterly depressed.

If you've got a friend who's recently been dumped then here's the perfect pressie to cheer her up this Valentine's...

Just provide a shoulder to cry on and a supply of hankies.

Helpful Hankies by Moi Self have messages that are guaranteed to brighten any mood. They include: ‘Fix your mascara, you’re amazing’, ‘Thinking of you sweetie’, ‘He’s not that hot anyway’, ‘Go and buy some shoes’ and ‘It’s not goodbye, just au revoir’. Designed and handmade in the UK, they are 100% cotton and can be personalised by writing your own special message on the back of the packaging.

Behind Moi Self is Tara Willis, who together with her business partner (and BFF), Bianca Pal, want to help girls support each other. Tara says: “There’s only one thing you can be sure of in this uncertain world – your friends. Moi Self is a fun form of self-help for you and your friends to experience together.”

Helpful Hankies: RRP £10 available to buy at www.mywardrobe.com

Pretty Ballerinas Save the Day

Let's be honest, it's happened to us all - but luckily not all of us get papped when our heels get stuck in pavement cracks and snap off.

Theresa May certainly loves her cute kitten heels but it might be a bright idea to keep some practical pumps tucked away in her handbag...

Cue Pretty Ballerinas to save the day!

In time for Fashion Week, Pretty Ballerinas have launched a new range of their ever popular pumps which come in a handy carry case - perfect for a quick change of footwear for the dash between shows.

Make it a pair in every colour for me please!

Geri's Flying the Flag Again

Can it really be 15 years since we were all dancing around the living room to Who Do You Think You Are ? Girls, you know who you are and there is home video evidence!

Almost 15 years to the day since Geri Halliwell took to the Brit Awards stage in the now infamous Union Jack dress, she's flying the flag once again - and the former Spice Girl doesn't look a single day older!

Where this little piece of pop history was sold at auction for in excess of £40,000 (not bad for a dress made from a tea towel), Geri's new sequin encrusted design for Next (featuring a much longer hemline) will go on sale for £199 from March.

David Beckham for H&M

Any excuse to post pictures of Becks in his kecks - David Beckham's underwear range for H&M goes on sale today...

Speaking of the range Goldenballs himself said: 'I can't wait to show people the collection - although I'm not sure my mum will be too happy seeing a billboard image of me in underwear again.' His Mum might not be very pleased - but I certainly am!
