Jean Paul Gaultier “On The Docks”

Jean Paul Gaultier “On The Docks”

Jean Paul Gaultier‘s advertising films are almost as iconic as the body shaped fragrance bottles, and 15 years after that first iconic on screen kiss, JPG Fragrances have reunited the lovers for the latest instalment of the saga. In “On The Docks”, Classique and Le Male fragrances have been personified by the beautiful Rianne Ten Haken and Jarrod Scott, who play the gorgeous girl and the sexy sailor who moves the earth (quite literally) to come kiss her. To the strains […]

Mary Katrantzou x Rodial

Mary Katrantzou x Rodial

Mary Katrantzou -one of my favourite designers – has collaborated with beauty brand Rodial on a limited-edition scented candle, set to launch in September. The candle features Mary’s signature colourful prints, and has top notes of orange and lemon, with sweet pineapple and orange blossom base notes. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous – almost to pretty to use! Mary Katrantzou x Rodial Candle will be available from September at Harrod’s, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Space NK and will cost £35.

Selfridges Limited Edition Festival Beauty Box

Selfridges Limited Edition Festival Beauty Box

Festival Season is upon us, and to kick it off in style, Selfridges have released another limited edition beauty box featuring a selection of summer festival essentials. The last one was a great success, so I’m sure this one will sell out very fast again. I’m a huge fan of beauty boxes, as it allows you to discover some brands you never would have otherwise – some might be keepers, some might not be for you, but at least you won’t […]

Selfridges Limited Edition Summer Beauty Box

Selfridges Limited Edition Summer Beauty Box

Selfridges have just launched their amazing limited edition summer beauty box again, and yet again it’s an absolute cracker. For £25, you get 9 summer beauty essentials worth £70. I got my hands on last summer’s box and it was pretty amazing – I discovered new products which I still use to this day, so it was totally worth it. These babies are exclusively available online and they tend to sell out fast so hurry if you want one – […]

Chanel at Covent Garden Mother’s Day Flower Stall

Chanel at Covent Garden Mother’s Day Flower Stall

If Chanel did flowers, they’d be the best flowers in the world. I’m so happy to announce that Chanel at Covent Garden is now no longer a pop-up, but a permanent boutique, the first of its kind for Chanel! To celebrate, the shop has undergone yet another make-over, this time to coincide with Mother’s Day next weekend. In front of the boutique, there will be a flower stall, which features some of the flowers that play an integral part of […]

Fragrance: Paul Smith Rose Limited Edition

Fragrance: Paul Smith Rose Limited Edition

I get given a *lot* of fragrances doing this job, but whilst I love cheating with different scents from time to time, I’m definitely a one-perfume kinda girl. I tend to fall in love with a scent and stick with it for a number of years (or until the bottle runs out). Those fragrances I love dearly are quite similar in essence: light, fresh and perfect for daily wear – you vaguely know it’s there, but it never overwhelms. I […]

Topshop Nails Animated

I’m a bit of a Topshop makeup addict, as it’s seriously good value for money (totally obsessed with the lipsticks right now), always great colours and great packaging (never underestimate the power of good packaging). Topshop have just released this cute stop-motion video by brother & sister duo Sadie & Joe to promote the new SS13 nail colours. Enjoy! P.S. For you budding nail artists – check out the Topshop nail art pens, they’re super easy to use!   Shop Topshop […]

Jimmy Choo Flash

Jimmy Choo Flash

A couple of months ago, I was invited to attend the top-secret launch of Jimmy Choo‘s new perfume Flash at the top of the amazing Gherkin. Now Flash has finally hit the shops and I can finally tell you all about it! Flash is Jimmy Choo’s second venture into fragrance (following the very successful Jimmy Choo perfume) and it perfectly compliments the brand’s aesthetic – sexy and luxurious. Creative Director Sandra Choi said: “We see fragrance as another accessory; we […]
