The Missing

 

 

 

BBC Drama The Missing has had us gripped for eight weeks now but it will finally reach its climax this week on Tuesday at 9pm. With so many suspects in the mix and the evidence piling up, it’s a tough call for even the savviest detective. We can’t wait to find out the final conclusion, but then the question is how will we live without it?

Lipstick

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With numerous events to attend and the holiday work to complete there’s no wonder we’re feeling stressed with less than 10 days til the big day. But to ease the pressure we’re using lipstick for a quick fix to take us from desk to bar. Choose a siren red or a ladylike nude to add a little oomph to your evening beauty look.

Dollhouse exhibition at V&A

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s nothing better than a bit of nostalgia around Christmas time so the V&A Museum of Childhood exhibition has come at the perfect time. But there’s nothing tiny about this miniature exhibition, it showcases around 100 dolls’ houses, models and shops. It’s just opened so there is plenty of time to view the cute display.

Christmas markets

 

 

 

 

 

London is beautiful around Christmas time, and with so many events on throughout the capital there is something for everyone. This week we’ll be visiting the Christmas markets near the Tate Modern for some last minute shopping and warm, winter food. With pretty wooden chalets, handmade toys and unique decorations there is a little festive cheer for the whole family. We can’t wait to soak up the festive atmosphere and indulge in a mulled wine or two…
