I find most perfume tv commercials a bit boring, but really how do you get the spirit of a scent on TV? The new Chanel ‘Chance Eau Vive‘ campaign directed by Jean-Paul Goude  is so charming. It takes place in a Chanel styled bowling alley and all the models Cindy Bruna, Romy Schonberger, Rianne Van Rompaey and Sigrid Agren are in beautiful pastel…Continue reading

When I think of J Crew I think of basics – good affordable basics but not fashion, so I was very surprised that I liked so many looks and that there were pieces that I wanted to wear! I loved the print on print, bold colours and that everything was styled with a "vintage" necklace.…Continue reading

Most of us can’t really afford to own a piece of Dior so the alternative idea of a Dior cupcake might just be what you’re looking for. If you’d like something delectable for a fashion friend these Dior Limited edition Cupcakes at Harrods for £19 might be the perfect gift!

Every now and then I get to do a job that I’m quite delighted about. I’ve been eating Kit Kat bars since I was about three years old as it was a weekly treat when visiting the park and feeding the ducks. It always amazes me how food is associated with fond memories, and I…Continue reading

Love this ad. I saw it on the fitting room wall in one of my favourite vintage shops, Paper Dress Vintage.

I love perfume – who doesn’t? Perfume is such a personal thing – it’s hard to know what makes you like a certain scent. So I was quite looking forward to attending the launch of Agent Provocateur’s three new perfumes at the new Rose Club in London. The new fragrances are based on the original…Continue reading

I’ve always been a fan of Ecco walking shoes but I never really thought of them for heels so I was quite delighted when they sent me these heeled ankle boots. I was pretty sure that they were going to be comfortable but was still surprised to discover that I could wear them all day…Continue reading

I really like both versions of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, based on Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s novel. In David Fincher’s  U.S. adaptation, with actress Rooney Mara-playing Lisbeth Salander you can’t help but notice her understated look. It’s the 12 piercings that she really had done and the short crazy girl fringe that makes…Continue reading
