Shrunken Blazers

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Topshop BlazerForget your long fitting winter blazer, this season is all about the cropped version in both length and arms.

To be able to pull this style off and be able to identify this trend, shape is the key!! The bottom of the jacket should sit a couple of inches lower than your waist and it’s probably best to steer clear of unflattering double-breasted cuts.

This great new spring style with look very stylish with simple jeans and a tee, however a coloured jacket would also look adorable over the bright spring outfits that appearing on the high street.

I have managed to locate this more classic looking cropped jacket available from Topshop. The great thing is that there’s not much chance of you mistaking it for a normal jacket as its actually called a shrunken blazer. It’s £50.00 and available on line or in store.

Orange Rules

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Orange ShoeIt appears the shade to be seen in at the moment is bright citrus orange and of course it’s the celebs that started the trend and have bought it to the high street – after all not much chance of them escaping paps in such a vibrant and bold colour.

As you can imagine, orange is by no means an easy colour to wear and pull off. I think the key here is to use the colour as a highlighting accessory in the form of a belt, bag or shoes. If you are brave enough to bear all and go for an orange frock then keep accessories to a minimum.

Whatever you do, do not wear this shade near any form heavily fake tanned skin – if you didn’t look like you had been tangoed before, you certainly will if this colour goes anywhere near you.

When searching the high street to see what orange goodies they had to offer, I came across these great shoes from www.brantano.co.uk. They are cheap as well at just £ 12.00 – perfect way to start my orange collection.

Rubis Swiss Tweeze Tweezers

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

tweezetweezers1.jpgThese tweeze tweezers have the best name ever, with Rubis being a Swiss company and the Swiss cheese connection in the design – I love it!!

These are state of the art when it comes in cosmetic tweezers and promise to produce the salon look every time. This slant-tip tweezer is likely to be the finest eyebrow-shaping tool available guaranteed to grab even the finest fuzz on the very first go. Unfortunately the cheese holes are not an added special effect, they quite literally are just holes – oh well I love the design anyway!!

This unique design does come at a price though, it would appear these beauties will set you back $29.95 when you buy them at Amazon, by far the most expensive tweezers ever!! Prices are around the same on most sites unfortunately.

Jo Malone Scented Candles

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

jo-malone-candels.jpgVisiting a friend’s house the other day led me to question the gorgeous aroma I could smell. The overpowering scent of nectarine infused her rooms so I had to ask where I could get my hands on something so strong.

She told me she got some Jo Malone candles which were £38 each but so worth every penny. They had lasted her quite a long time and she loves the fact that everyone who has entered her house has commented on them. With that I got myself one from the website. I bought the Nectarine Blossom & Honey candle but there are so many more scents to choose from including Blue Agava & Cacao, Grapefruit, Spring Jasmine and Vintage Gardenia.

Get yours from Jo Malone online.
