BEAUTY: Rainy Days With Jo Malone

I was on a roll in Selfridges last week, visiting The Cobella salon and then the Jo Malone stand in the beauty hall. It was all champagne and meringues as Jo Malone introduced their new range of fragrances inspired by rain – perfect for London! We were taken through the range smelling each fragrance with a hand cream of a different scent and many of … Continue reading BEAUTY: Rainy Days With Jo Malone

BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Black Out

I had my nails done and a mini facial at Rougz salon, Finchley Road, this week. I had purchased a basement bargain voucher from Last Minute.com (£10 for both treatments) so was slightly apprehensive about the quality. Upon arrival my first impression was that the salon is a bit tacky looking, lots of Rougz items and fake flowers. However, the staff were absolutely lovely. My … Continue reading BEAUTY: Nails Of The Week – Black Out

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 5

Dear diary… On day five of LFW AW14 I joined a cult. The cult of K-T-Z. Things had begun to wind down, and those of us who’d been wearing heels for 5 days straight were feeling a little fatigued. But it was a refreshing wake up call to see the ever interesting K-T-Z show. The crowd at the show were predominantly hardcore fans. The thing … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 5

FASHION: LFW AW14/15 Diary Day One

Dear Diary…It’s that time again… Catwalk season! London Fashion Week got off to a wet and windy start yesterday leaving fashionistas drenched and windswept at Somerset House. I was there with a warm scarf and an umbrella, but there were other girls bare legged and jacket less proving their true dedication to style. This is my 5th LFW! (Getting old) and I was feeling a … Continue reading FASHION: LFW AW14/15 Diary Day One

FASHION: London Fashion Week Highlights

There may be talk of granny heels and square somber toes, but I was loving the bright patterned shoes in many collections at London Fashion Week. My top picks are these Sophia Webster, Sister By Sibling, and Eugene Lin pairs. Perhaps not a particularly wearable trend, but my second highlight is this sunburn style pink makeup seen at several shows including Corrie Neilson and Ji … Continue reading FASHION: London Fashion Week Highlights

BEAUTY: Summer Up-Dos With Leticia Haute Coiffure

Don’t be distracted by the outrageously cute Spaniel puppy in the window, 59/61 Chiltern Street, London is not a pet store for unusually gorgeous dogs! Look beyond the silky ears and puppy dog eyes of Jack the resident cutie and you’ll find one of London’s top hair and Beauty Salons.

FASHION: Paolita At Portman Village Jubilee Street Party

It’s only three more days until the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and I’ve kicked off my celebrations early, running around London to various Diamond and British heritage themed events. There are too many to blog about them all – I do have a day job – but I thought I’d share a few highlights over the coming days. Last year I was introduced to a gorgeously eclectic swimwear … Continue reading FASHION: Paolita At Portman Village Jubilee Street Party

FASHION: Paolita Swimwear Playful Promises Kiss Me Deadly and Lucile Lingerie

With snow still fresh in my memory it was a warm change to see some swimwear and lingerie on show.

In typical Fashion Week…. Fashion….. this was probably the only … Continue reading FASHION: Paolita Swimwear Playful Promises Kiss Me Deadly and Lucile Lingerie
