The last protest march I went on was for the miners when I was a student. God knows what I wore then but I know I was cold. For the Women’s March earlier this month I knew that a hat was essential.  I’m a proper grown up now (!) and I know all about the importance of a warm head,  but really I just wanted to wear this hat from Mu Du London

I also know that on a protest march you need snacks and you need to pack these snacks in an easy to carry bag. This rose gold backpack, believe it or not, is from Primark. It feels like leather (but probably isn’t, it was £9) and I’ve used it every day since I bought it.

So, two current trends that work extremely well on a march. I’m now going to the protest outside Downing Street. Look out for me on the news. I’ll be wearing a hat.

I’ve just discovered the best way to try out new beauty products without it costing a fortune. Latest In Beauty allows you to buy a box of specially chosen products for a fraction of the normal retail price. And if none of the collections appeal to you you can even create your own box filled with the products you want to try. I’ve just bought The Glamour Summer Edit for £17.99. It’s full of gorgeous products that are a must for the summer holidays and is worth £117.99! Check it out here.
