The times have changed.

As you may have noticed, things have been rather quiet on Reflection of Alice as of late. Thing have changed. The reason for this is I have been been quietly working on a new venture, The Thrifty Project.

The Thrifty Project is for anyone who wants to stay stylish on the most frugal of budgets, anyone who wants to know London's top cheap eats, or anyone who just want to know how to make their money strech a little further.  So please please (please!) follow me and spread the word as I need support and love from all my loyal readers.

Thanks to everyone who has followed me on Reflection of Alice, I hope to see all of you check in over at The Thrifty Project.

See you on the other side.

Trinny and Suzannah Magic Pants

I have never really been the kind of gal who gets upset about my various lumps and bumps, but then the fitted maxi came along. Overnight I seemed to be sporting long black unforgiving dresses, and it seemed with the trend came a visible knickerline, a big butt and a pot belly which I previously didn't know existed.  So I invested in spanx, and suddenly my stomach was smoother than ever before, my butt firmer and my thighs silky smooth. Win, win right?

Recently it seems spanx are a growing trend, and with any trend comes the good, the bad and the ugly. So when I was asked to try out Trinny and Suzannah's new line of magic pant's, by Tights Please I only too kindly obliged. I decided to try out the tanned version of their all in shapewear, which arrived in a teeny weeny childlike size. Once I slipped the suit on it sucked in all ones lumps and bumps, creating a perfect silhouette for unforgiving all in ones such as maxi's or cat suits.

So if like me your not particularly concerned about your lumps and bumps but have found yourself in a maxi dilemma then be sure to invest in some of these magic pants.

Original Magic Knickers come in 9 different styles, in a range of colours, starting from £26. Stocked nationwide and online at  &

Sunday Lazing and Brownie Making

Sundays are for eating, sleeping and brownie baking. Today I have mostly listened to Laura Marling, begun reading Never Let Me Go under a blanket on my sofa, and watched the rain beat against my window pane.

I also baked brownies. But not just any Brownies. Hellman's popped into visit me at work recently with a basket of brownies they made using mayonnaise instead of butter. They were divine.

So I recreated them today - with great results.  If anyone wants te recipe - let me know!
