Products range from teapots and cushions to champagne and cake stands. The choices are endless and cost anything from a couple of pounds to hundreds, so there is something for everyone.

Fashion is a great way of expressing yourself but often it’s easy to get stuck in a rut especially when you’re getting older. I know that lots of women question if they are ‘too old’ to wear certain garments and consequently give up on fashion all together.

So it’s brilliant to hear that supermodel Twiggy, who is now 62 years old, has launched her debut collection with Marks and Spencer Woman. The summer collection, which is available exclusively online now, is full of stylish wardrobe essentials and one off special occasion pieces that truly are fantastic high street purchases for women who want to remain fashionable despite their age.

What I like about the collection is that Twiggy has designed it with herself and other women of her age in mind. She’s used feminine colours and sophisticated patterns with tailored cuts and soft fabrics that all complement women whatever age they may be.

And the variety is endless as Twiggy’s Mark and Spencer collection includes flattering dresses, stylish trousers, blouses and statement jackets plus a selection of accessories which pull all of the outfits together perfectly.

Along with designing the collection Twiggy can also be seen modelling the outfits on the Marks and Spencer website, where you will also be able to see her in the Marks and Spencer Jubilee TV advert alongside Dannii Minogue, Myleen Klass and Jamie Redknapp with music from Gary Barlow.

Happy New Year

On behalf of myself and my team I would like to wish everyone a very happy New Year and all the best for 2012.

After a wonderful festive period I’ll be using this time to relax and recuperate before the hard work of the New Year begins. Now is the perfect time to hit the shops and indulge in the famous January sales. For those of you who prefer to avoid the high street at busy times, go digital and check out sales online.

My favourites including Marks and Spencer, Next, Debenhams and John Lewis, all great British brands who have online sales offering brilliant value and a great selection.

We’re back in the office on 3rd January. Until then have a wonderful New Year!

Annette's websites of the week

The X Factor– This weekend is The X Factor final and after months of auditions, boot camp and live shows the winner will finally be announced and crowned The X Factor 2011 champion.

In the running to win this weekend’s big finale is girl band (and Bath-Knight office favourites) Little Mix, Marcus Collins and Amelia Lily who was voted back into the show after the impromptu exit of Frankie Cocozza.

If like me you’ve missed a couple of episode from this year’s The X Factor the official website is packed with the latest news, previous performances and exclusive looks at the finalist which you won’t find elsewhere.

Additionally the site includes beauty and fashion tips with the help of The X Factor’s new partnerships including brands such as Rimmel London and Marks and Spencer. Overall the site is a real success and gives a great insight to the show- a must view site if you’re planning on watching this weekend’s final.

mands logoMarks and SpencerFor me and many of my friends Marks and Spencer is a safe haven, especially around Christmas time. With a real push to keep up with the times- hence their recent partnership with The X Factor- M&S is a store which can fulfil everyone’s needs.

From spectacular foods and drinks, home furnishing and clothing for all- they now have on trend fashion collections which sit alongside more traditional ranges. M&S is living up to its iconic reputation.

Even better Marks and Spencer has a fantastic website, which I frequently use, selling everything which you will find in store plus online exclusives. Undoubtedly I’ll be visiting the site before Christmas… a forgotten gift, replenishing wrapping paper or delicious Christmas nibbles which will go down a treat.

Royal Mail- With Christmas fast approaching it’s a good idea to log onto the Royal Mail’s website to find out when you’re post deadline is for cards and parcels. It might be handy to note that many overseas deadlines are this week, which means that you really do need to get your Christmas wishes in the post soon if you’ve not already.

Royal Mail’s online Christmas tool is really efficient and easy to use. Simply select where you would like to send your post too and the service type (First Class, Second Class etc…) then click ‘find posting date’ and the site will calculate your deadline date.

Alternatively the Royal Mail has produced a ‘last posting date’ table which lists all dates and services accordingly.  I’ve printed this out and kept it in my organiser in case of any last minute emergency mail outs.

Remember ‘Post Early for Christmas’ as Royal Mail’s vintage poster campaign so famously said.
