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 […]

Tested: Velvet Manicure from Ciaté

Tested: Velvet Manicure from Ciaté

Disclaimer: I am complete and utter rubbish when it comes to my nails. Not only am I a nailbiter, but I struggle just to put a single layer on without accidentally painting my whole finger, let alone do anything more clever like nail art – that just ain’t happening. So, keeping that in mind, earlier today I reluctantly attempted Ciaté’s Velvet Manicure, knowing it would probably be a disaster. There’s been a lot of talk about Ciaté’s velvet and caviar […]

Selfridges launch limited edition Beauty Box

Selfridges launch limited edition Beauty Box

To celebrate the launch of Selfridges‘ new spectacular beauty hall, they have designed a limited edition BeautyBox featuring 7 niche brands which are new to the space. The box launches online tomorrow (Aug 21), and will cost just £15, which is amazing value considering these products would cost over £200 if bought individually. Because I’m a totally spoiled girl, I was one of just a few people to get my hands on the box early to test it out over […]

Chanel Beauty Pop Up At Covent Garden

Chanel Beauty Pop Up At Covent Garden

I told you about the Chanel beauty pop up in Covent Garden last week, and on Monday I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of it. The pop up is situated in Covent Garden’s iconic piazza, and is Chanel’s first ever beauty-only pop up, featuring professional make up artists and a nail bar. Stepping inside a Chanel boutique can sometimes be a bit intimidating, and what I love about the pop up is that it’s in the […]
