The Perfume Gifts

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Anna Sui Secret WishChristmas is fast approaching and if you’re in need of some gifts that no matter what, are always appreciated… why not invest in some perfume gift sets?

Hugo Boss FemmeAfter trying to find myself a new scent I was drawn to all these beautifully wrapped perfume gift sets. These inspired me to shop for my friend’s new scent and I found some fantastic offers. I love shopping for fragrances because there really is something for everybody.

Calvin Klein EuphoriaSome of the best ones I saw were Anna Sui’s Secret Wish at only £23.00, that includes a 30ml fragrance and a 50ml body lotion, Hugo Boss Femme is only £40, that includes a 50ml fragrance and a 200ml body lotion and Calvin Klein Euphoria is only £35, that includes a 50ml fragrance and a 100ml body lotion.

All of these sweet scents are available to buy on line at www.boots.com.

Avril Gau Leather Purse

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Avril Gau PurseThis is a gorgeous soft leather handy size purse brought to us by Avril Gau. Granted it’s probably not to everyone’s taste and I would agree its quite strange looking, but that to me adds to its charm.

I think the oversized studs are a great feature but very unusual, enough perhaps to make it trend-worthy and a real eye catching accessory for this season.

Personally I wouldn’t want to have to hide this bold design away, but I bet it would create a stir in your local shop if you were to pull out such an accessory from the depths of your normal day to day plain black bag!

It also has every feature you would look for in a purse with its stud fastening and plenty of room for all your coins, notes and cards. It’s a bit on the expensive side at £60, but perhaps worth it to add that tough of glamour to your handbag. You can find out more and buy on line at www.whatagirlneeds.co.uk.

Nokia Prism 7900

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Nokia Prism 7900This new Nokia 7900 mobile is the newest and most high tech gadget to be developed by these mobile geniuses and its aimed straight at us girly trend setters who are always seeking to have the latest technology.

It comes fully loaded with enough techy stuff to keep any gadget girl amused. It boasts a super glossy front with an aluminum back cover that has the Nokia prism collections signature diamond shape lasered into it.

Some of the main features that will have you reveling in this phones design are the camera that’s capable of recording DVD quality videos so you can capture all your favourite moments in motion and the choice of over a whooping 49 colours to have as either keypad or the display design.

My favourite feature has to be the ‘living’ wallpaper which apparently changes dynamically based on the time of day, the strength of your signal and how much battery life remains. The whole phone gives you the opportunity to create a unique colour scheme based on your own personal preferences.

It’s the look of this phone that seems to make it different from the rest and I think they have definitely created a gadget that will capture the hearts of all us young trend setters. The release date is yet to be confirmed so I can’t comment on prices but you can keep your eye out for further info at www.nokiaprism.com.

A Rosy Scent

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

Paul Smith Rose PerfumeFresh and modern, Rose, the new fragrance from Paul Smith is the brand new scent of the season, it has been advertised in all the top fashion and beauty print. A technology known as ScentTrek is used which isolates the flower and ‘inhales’ particles of the scent. According to the website “The resulting ‘note’ replicates exactly the scent of the rose as it nods and shakes its head in the breeze on a summer’s day”. Scrummy!

The eau de parfum comes in bottles of 30ml priced at £24, 50ml priced at £34 and 100ml priced at £48, packaged in a cute Paul Smith rose print pouch. The fragrance is available to purchase on line at www.paulsmith.co.uk.

House Of Fraser Now Available Online

Monday, October 8th, 2007

House Of Fraser LogoEvery so often I find something in House of Fraser that I love and long for but quite often I become indecisive and decide if it’s meant to be, I can come back later. The problem is that there isn’t always a House of Fraser local, so after checking their website for my nearest store I realised that House of Fraser now sells on line.

Brands available on the House of Fraser on line shop range from the trendy young fashion labels such as Miss Sixty, French Connection and Therapy to the more expensive and glamorous styles of Gina Bacconi. Not only can you spend on womenswear, there are also other departments such as menswear, electricals, beauty, at home, children’s and travel and gifts.

Spanx – An Immediate Slimming Fix

Monday, October 8th, 2007

SpanxA big event is fast approaching and I am in serious need of a flattering garment because in all honesty I am not super slim. It’s upsetting but I have come to terms with it, mainly because there is always some sort of help available in the form of a 3 day diet.

The most recent tip I’ve had is slimming pants, Spanx to be more precise. The higher waisted power panty is apparently a miracle worker so I’m keen to do a ‘tried and tested’. I’m pleased to report that they work wonders; they define the figure and smooth over all that unwanted extra skin. It’s just a shame that they are just an immediate one day fix, I long for an easy way of losing weight which does not require extreme will power!

Get yours from www.figleaves.com, priced at £23, available in either black or nude.
