Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

by Katie on July 16, 2010

A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”.


Prestat chocolate bars Hmmm. Stylish and delicious. Prestat, chocolatier to Her Maj The Queen, has just launched its new Finest Selection Chocolate Bean Bars, all at only £1.80 each. From Dark & Rich, Velvety smooth milk and Creamy White, this is the type of chocolate you self treat or, they’re perfect as an extra little addition to any birthday gift.

Elle Collections Worth waiting for. Just fabulous. LOVE the cover, a fashion first. Bravo.

Ormonde Jayne’s Box of 4 (10ml) Travel Purse Sprays (£54) Beautiful ornate fragrances just the right size for an evening bag. Ultra sophisticated. Available from Ormonde Jayne, Old Bond Street (check out this boutique, a dramatic setting for a heady array of their exquisite perfumes) and Harrods.

Flemings Hotel, 8-12 Half Moon Street, W1 Wowsah! Thanks to and his ‘Hot Friday’ happening for bloggers, we were initiated into this little beauty.

This little privately owned boutique hotel beautifully merges the old with the new and is a ‘secret’ fashion bolt-hole. Lavish mirrors, Murano glass chandeliers, marble floors, a modern sumptuous and intimate dining and bar area with 60’s glass vases on 19th mantlepieces, all moodily lit. Just gorgeous. And the cocktails aren’t bad too.

‘The Fairy Jobmother’ (Channel 4) Can you imagine having *that* (ie Hayley Taylor from Benefit Busters) looming at you all choppy hair and neckerchief, cajoling you. Like an even more nightmare version of Gladys Pugh from ‘Hi-Di-Hi’ (youngsters, ask your mothers) without the humour.

My constant attempts at home hair dyeing *Bathroom splattered in red* Save me oh Gods of hair salons from this feeble attempt at blitzing the ensuing grey.

If there’s one thing worse than hot and humid it’s (you guessed it) cold and clammy. Hmmm.


Eastenders’ Lucas and Denise storyline Talk about dragging it out. Tsk
