I've been a journalist for four years, writing on a wide variety of topics from business and finance to travel, culture and celebrities. I began my career as an editorial assistant for Palladian Publications, a B2B publisher specialising in technical magazines for professionals in primary industries. I later moved into consumer magazines as a staff writer for French Magazine, a monthly travel publication aimed at Francophiles, and was part of the launch team for The Traveller in France, a quarterly magazine produced for the French tourist board. I was also a regular contributor to online travel portal Homesworldwide.co.uk, and later worked with customer publishers Future Plus as a freelance production editor, before joining Sift Media in January 2009. I am currently Deputy Editor of AccountingWEB.co.uk.

I'm just relieved it's going to be saved. That's where I get all my knick knacks from!

I always bring two pairs of shoes to every event. One is a pair roll up ballet pumps which I wear on the way there, stow in my bag at the event and then slip on afterwards; the other is always a pair of killer heels that are called killer for a reason!
For those who don't love heels as much as I do, you could try wearing a nice subtle wedge heel? These are much kinder to your poor little toes and still look the business.
Here are a couple of pairs I like:
We've also featured lots of wedges and what to wear them with on MyStreetChic.com. Click here to check them out!

I love Take That!
I'm loving the blanket coverage of Take That on the telly at the moment. I think it's safe to say that I am their biggest fan! They can wrap me up in that Take That blanket and I'd be very happy indeed! :-)
(Btw, I love that Yuan Direction joke! It's not often the FT gets down with the kids!)

Heed the bookkeepers
I'd like to refer you to Mark Lee's comment above, which I think explains very well why bookkeepers are a good barometer.

Right you are!
Although I thought the Take That video would be nicer to look at than the original! ;-)

I want a slanket! It looks so cool! On a more serious note, I have just purchased an HTC Desire and I absolutely love it. Much cheaper than the iPhone as well...

Oh dear! You shouldn't have seen that. Looks like the box was ticked accidentally. That's what we keep it as in our library to enable us to find pictures quickly but it's not intended to appear as a caption!

Thanks for the info Charles. I've read so many confusing reports about this over the last couple of days, so it's good to have it in human language for once! It actually reminded me a little of the Y2K panic we had back at the turn of the century! What a red herring that turned out to be!

Payroll professionals cast their votes
The Institute of Payroll Professionals ran the same poll among their members to see if the opinions of the accountancy world were different to those of payroll professionals.
There was a little more faith left in HMRC among the payroll professionals. Read the full results here.
