The demise of the department store

I think it is a real shame that we are in danger of losing many well-known stores from our local High Street.

Yes, that’s right – your day.  Who says that you have to save your sparkle just for special occasions or after dark? Of course, there are degrees of sparkle and you wouldn’t want to overdo it, but a … Continue reading To sparkle or not to sparkle?

Rainy days on the golf course

After a gloriously sunny summer, I have finally had a chance to wear my stylish new waterproof jacket on the golf course.  The rain and wind have now most definitely arrived! There are a couple of features I particularly like about this jacket.  Firstly, it has adjustable side-tabs, which means that the waist can be … Continue reading Rainy days on the golf course
