Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce
I feel it's my public duty to introduce you to a new show, on the off chance you haven't heard of it. There are many reasons for the introduction, but mainly I feel it's a public service announcement for women suffering from withdrawal after losing another show a short time ago. Friends of mine know that I pretty publicly mourned when Sex and The City aired its last episode. We gathered around the TV, my friends and I, as Samantha, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte had their last breakfast and final indecent chit chat. We cried as if we were saying goodbye to our own friends. We sipped champagne and raised our glasses to the dawning of a new day, where HBO didn't hold us hostage once a week. Only, now, there's a new set of girls filling the empty hearts of Sex and The City fans, not to mention the time slot in our schedules. Yes, I can pretty confidently say there's now a show that's matching the lovely SATC ladies and it's called Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce. While there are striking differences between the shows, mainly the coasts of America in which they take place, there are so many reasons you'll find this as the plug for that hole in your heart that was punched in when Carrie left us all for Big...

So without further ado: 10 reasons why "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" is the new "Sex and The City"

Style Update: The perfect skinny jeans?

The search for the perfect pair of jeans is like every women's search for the holy grail. I reckon, over the years, I've wriggled my thighs and bum into over a thousand pairs in an effort to find my ideal match. I've struck gold about a dozen times. Those aren't good odds, ladies. That's about a one percent success rate. So I think you'll understand why, when I find a great pair of denim, I like to share the good news round the world so that I may bring that percentage of success up a few pegs around the globe. 

You won't believe where these shoes are from... (and that they're only £65)

Whenever I'm out and about on Oxford or Regent Street, I consider myself in an "office" of sorts. I'm always looking around to see what can be featured or shouted about. I like to think of myself as constantly on the job, keeping an eye out for great finds around the city. It's an occupational hazard, really. 

FFG Travel Review: 7 Days at The Golden Door, California

I do believe there's a time in nearly every person's life when they reach the end of their tether. For one reason or another, times become tough. Truly, It's just a part of life, that's all, right? For me, 2015 was a hard year. A very hard year indeed. Now before you think this is a story involving a box of Kleenex, rest assured it is anything but. I have thousands more reasons to be thankful than I do to be remorseful so there's no feeling sorry for me here, please. We're talking normal things- a breakup, a move, a questioning of location on the globe and a bit with back surgery (and major weight gain because of it). Run of the mill stuff right? Well, not exactly run of the mill stuff, but nothing that singularly isn't doable. It's when it all adds up at the same time that things become hard. Which leads me to where I sit today and the story that changes everything.

Seven days ago I arrived at The Golden Door. A friend had suggested it as an idea to start our new year out on the right foot and I had to admit I was hesitant.
