About Me

Hi, I’m Angie and I like to dream of being a cross between Patsy Stone (Absolutely Fabulous who spends all day drinking Bollinger with her bestie and shopping) and Carrie Bradshaw (makes a living from blogging on her observations of life and again, spends a lot of time shopping with besties.

I love nothing more than researching, planning and organising; everything from sourcing the best hair products, wedding and party planning to finding new ways to style and organise my life and home.

I love homes and interiors and used to have my own home styling company after being an estate agent for more years than I care to remember.

I now write online courses and offer business support to help women create the freedom and flexibility of being their own boss and in control of their working lives.

In my spare time, you will most likely find me researching for Lipstick & Champagne or out with my furry friend, Molly the Golden Labrador.


“I was in the process of trying to sort out all my many piles of disorganisation and was doing a bit of research to ensure I hadn’t missed anything when I came across your fabby blog. It was so good I binned all my lists and kept going back to yours for reference! It was all spot on for absolutely everything”
