Today I write about Marilyn Monroe, the incredibly beautiful and iconic, Hollywood star. A deeply personal letter of her’s is being auctioned online on the 30th May, by the memorabilia dealer ‘Profiles in History’, who appears on the US television show, ‘Hollywood Treasure’.
The force of nature, that was Lady Margaret Thatcher, died yesterday, aged 87 , whilst staying at The Ritz hotel. She was the first female Prime Minister in the UK and in the West, after winning three general elections. She spent 11 years at Downing Street, which makes her the UK’s longest running leader (in modern times). Her opinions and policies may not have been to everyone’s taste, but whether or not one agreed with her, she certainly proved that women are just as capable of running the country as men. Her career is an inspiration to many women, and her dedication to this country is without question.In her lifetime she proved that women can be just as strong, intelligent and as professional as any man. She wasn’t called ‘The Iron Lady’ for nothing! It was written in the ‘I Newspaper’ that she,
“Championed freedom for the countries in the Soviet Union and fought and won an unlikely war in the Falkland Islands in 1982.”
Emma Watson, aka Hermione from Harry Potter, is the epitome of English-ness. She has a refined, almost lyrical voice, that would be well suited at Oxford or Cambridge, and she remains a lot more reserved than many other current celebrities. Perhaps, it’s because she is wise enough to let her hair down out of the public eye. There is such a great sadness in the knowledge that photographers will position themselves to get the most unflattering pose of a celebrity, just to sell the pictures. Which is hardly the stereotypical gentlemanly reputation that English men are reported to possess. When I speak to foreign people about this country, they describe a quaint image of England. I find myself in conversations about the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Pennines or the Peak district, tea and crumpets, or strawberries and cream. They talk about the bowling greens and cricket grounds, where people are said to enjoy high tea and scones. They talk of ladies and of gentleman, and of etiquette and elocution. It’s how a lot of foreigners envision our daily lifestyles. Thankfully, there is still a small minority where these traditions still live on. Emma Watson with her genteel demeanor, kindness, and refined attitude, is the stereotypical ‘English Rose’, she flies the flag for young females, to prove that there are actually some ladies in this generation!
Gwyneth Paltrow has had a hard time of it in the media lately, with headlines such as, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow is too Righteous’, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow infuriates ‘average women’, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow Admits Starving Her Kids So They “Look Good” – Child Abuse?’, ‘How Gwyneth Paltrow’s restrictive diet leaves her children hungry’, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow’s Kids Are Going Hungry On Her Intense Diet!’, there are plenty more, believe me, but I think you get the picture.
Today is the birthday of the legend that is Sarah Jessica Parker. Today marks her 48th birthday, so wishing her lots of birthday love! Jessica Parker has been some-what of a heroine of mine since her starring role in Sex in the City as arguably her most famous character, Carrie Bradshaw.

Recently these so called, ‘Vampire Facelifts’ have been in the press since Kim Kardashian indulged in the ‘treatment’ which was filmed for her show ‘Kourtney and Kim Take Miami’. Kim, 32, was seen having the rather unique treatment on 10th March when she posted a picture on Instagram, and has since started a massive media interest in the extreme process. The ‘facelift’ involves taking blood from the arm of the client, the platlets in the blood are then ‘cleansed’ through a machine and then injected back into the face. The benefit of this treatment is that it is said to give one a more youthful appearance. During the show Kardashian commented, ‘I’ll never get a facelift if it feels like that.’
Being in hospital really tests one’s loyalty to one’s cosmetic regime. It’s ridiculously hard to maintain a good cleanse, tone and moisturise routine, at both morning and night. Firstly as you don’t always feel up to going through the whole lengthy process of it all and secondly as you don’t always have your usual products to hand. Which can be rather frustrating, when you know you are prone to breakouts when your regime isn’t adhered to as strictly. So if you do have a little time to pack yourself a bag, like I did, the crucial decision of what cosmetics to take begins. If you know well in advance then if possible you can buy travel sized products specifically.
The Les Miserables star looked like a petite porcelain doll in her pastel grey almost lilac fitted dress. Her hair was styled in a beautiful chignon in the nape of her neck.
Her delicate halter neck dress had a tear shaped hole at the centre of her chest and a long train of embroidered sheer fabric. She looked like the ‘Belle of the ball’!
