DENIM DEBATE: Have I found the perfect jeans?

I think I may have found the perfect jeans. For me at least.

I've just bought Uniqlo's Ultra Stretch skinny jeans and am so happy with my new blues. They claim to "enhance your silhouette and define your legs" and actually I have had two compliments on my derriere (from women I may add) since I started wearing them.

They're made from a mix of cotton and Spandex are ultra soft and comfy, and ping back to shape. They are also relatively high-waisted, which, for a long-legged, high-waisted, narrow-hipped gal like me, is perfect. Minimal muffin top.

With change from £30 they are totally affordable - I should really go back and buy them in every colour.

Give them a try them if you are still searching for the perfect denim.

WIBTW (What I Bought This Week): I heart COS

This is not a sponsored post.

It bloomin' should be though.

I thought I'd do regular WIBTW posts as and when I go shopping but I'm seeing a pattern emerging. It seems I have a favourite shop and these posts are soon going to a read like a "What's New In Store" at, yup, you guessed it, COS.

I'm a bit addicted to it's luxe classics that cleverly go with ANYTHING, yet also cannily make you want to buy EVERYTHING (from COS, of course) to go with it. Mental.

And it's not just me. All my friends and colleagues love it too.

If I wear something from COS I can guarantee I will hear either "I've got that!" or "Oooh, where's that from?!"

So here are this week's payday purchases. Notice a few trends emerging...

My favourite? The cute heavy knit 60s style dress. Goes with my newly-chopped hair.

Dress, £69

Cardigan, £79

Jumper, £45

Top, £35
Scarf £35

Doggy style

I've just seen some great editorial I have to share from a friend and ex-colleague Jade, who now works over in sunny Dubai on the très glossy Emirates Woman mag.

I cannot resist a shoot with an animal in. I've booked micro pigs, dachshunds, even snakes for shoots before. Didn't like the snake, mind. Slippery little suckers.

Check out these amazing dogs with INSANE jewellery...

Latest editorial: Darling Buds

Here is my latest work for LOOK magazine, a studio story showcasing Spring's gorgeous florals.

I particularly enjoyed heading down to New Covent Garden Flower Market to pick the beautiful blooms for the background. Everyone headed home with several bunches of flowers that day.
