Shopping: want it. need it. love it. Buy it. She's tuned in to the latest styles and best stores - JULIE HANNAH has checked the shops for you, now you can flash the plastic.
I just had to have I heard this week that Britney and J-Lo have been stocking up on Jo Malone's sensual range of fragrances and scented candles, so I just had to hurry down to the store in Glasgow's Princes Square and snap up a bottle of Red Roses bath oil, above.
And now I'm addicted. The classic glass bottles look great on a shelf and the scent is delicious. Just a couple of tiny drops do the trick, so although it's pricey, it'll last ages. The200ml glass bottle is pounds 52, but there's a plastic 100ml bottle for pounds 22.
Top of the shops For hassle-free shoe shopping, vivaladiva.com is the place to be. Just launched, the easy--to-navigate website has every kind of shoe you could ever need, from sexy Miss Sixty sandals to cool Acupuncture trainers. You just type in the kind of shoe you're looking for in the search field (e.g. black strappy) and you can instantly see what's available in all the brands. It sure beats traipsing round half a dozen shoe shops.
Bargain buy I love this super-stretchy vest top from Urban Outfitters, pounds 22, above. It comes in five great colour combinations and is great for tall girls as it's really long in the body. It's ideal to wear with jeans for a casual night out or for daytime, it'll look great peeking out from under a fitted shirt or cardi in the same colour.
As seen on Since the '60s, the classic Missoni zig-zag print has been a favourite with some of the world's most glamorous women. Just last month, Rachel Stevens was spotted wearing a slinky halter neck and gorgeous OC star Mischa Barton is another celebrity fan. No need to splash out on the designer original though, since River Island have this gold zig-zag dress , below, for pounds 22.50, in the sale. Wear it alone, or for a causal look, try it over jeans or black trousers.
On my wish list There's nothing like a bit of bling to transform an outfit from bland to super-glam, so check out D2's new range of Hoi Polloi jewellery that's just arrived.
From glitzy silver and diamante to eye-catching antique-style pieces, there's something for everyone. I love this long necklace with crystals and pearls, above, that looks great under a white shirt or glams up a top at night, prices from pounds 7.
