Those old trainers could be worth a fortune

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Monday 13th January 2014

My son’s bright blue trainers are his pride and joy. The only problem is that they’ve got holes in the soles, a rip down one side and even though they’ve been through the washing machine a couple of times they don’t look too clean. He’s loath to part with them but he might change his mind when he discovers that if he put them on eBay he could be quids-in. ...keep reading

Snow in Paris

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Monday 25th February 2013

Victoria Beckham looked frozen as she watched her husband make his debut for Paris St-Germain last night. I’ve just spent two days in Paris and I’ve rarely felt so cold.

For her christening party she wore a chic tartan all-in-one, while for her aunt’s wedding she sported a blue silk beret from a milliners called Herald & Heart Hatters. Her most stylish outfit ...keep reading

Harper Seven – where did that name come from?

Published by Emma Lee-Potter in on Wednesday 13th July 2011

It was obvious from the start that Posh and Becks were never going to call their new baby daughter something plain and simple – like Mary or Jane. But how on earth did they come up with Harper Seven? I know her name had to match up to Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, her three big brothers, but Harper Seven sounds like an upmarket washing liquid. Even though the Beckhams themselves say they named ...keep reading
