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.

Some Silky Briefs

hargreaves-chiffon-panites.jpgThere’s nothing like some undeniably sexy underwear to make a girl feel special. Yes, underwear is not just for the men, women like to look gorgeous for their own eyes too, think of it as a confidence booster.

Anyway … Hargreaves-Gervis have some lovely little numbers. These sheer silk, chiffon briefs with frills are brightly coloured, would compliment a tan in summer and are sure to make you feel good. The briefs come in burnt bright orange, plasticine green and richest royal purple, in sizes S, M and L.

Treat yourself and get yours from Hargreaves-Gervis for £20 each plus postage and packaging.

All Things Original

Monday, January 7th, 2008

anythingoriginalpurse.jpgAll Thing Original is a fab new online shop that stocks a great selection of unique creative gifts from independent British designers and they cater for all budgets!! They have products from accessories to bags and knitwear to art & design – it’s a great collection.

Whilst browsing through the vast collection I found myself being drawn to this beautiful and delicate Apple Blossom purse priced £49.50. It’s a true representation of everything this site has to offer and it’s just up my street – I love it!! It’s elegantly made with a watercolour blossom motif printed on the front. The blossom also boasts satin stitch with beads that are embellished to the pattern. It also claims to be deceivingly spacious inside which is always a bonus for me – I’m forever trying to unsuccessfully jam everything into my tiny clutches, so the more space the better!!

I would recommend this site to anyone who loves original pieces. It will definitely be first port of call when I need to find a gift for someone special. Simply log on to www.allthingsoriginal.com and have a look for yourself.

Place this on a key ring for maximum colleague/fellow student envy. Practical, stylish and dazzling … all hail Swarovski.

Care For Your Clothes

Monday, December 31st, 2007

holistic-silk-coat-hangers.jpgDecorating the boudoir is an exciting, yet challenging experience. Great care must be taken with everything, from wall paper to wardrobe.

Why not hang your clothes with some Boudoir Clothes Hangers with Lavender? Not only will you be letting your clothes air, they will stay lavender fresh from the aroma gently released from the hanger. Practical and stylish, you can coordinate your clothes with specific coloured hangers such as blue, amethyst, bronze, black and jade to mention a few. Another benefit … lavender is supposedly a moth repellent which is great for your cashmere!

The boudoir clothes hangers are available at www.holisticsilk.co.uk, priced at £14 so go ahead and ‘store with style’.

Swarovski Cube Scarf Necklace

Monday, December 31st, 2007

swarovski-cube-scarf-necklace.jpgNecklaces are a great accessory, especially when you are wearing a garment that’s strapless or has an empire line.

There is usually a lot of skin on display, so placing a necklace around your neck will take focus off the amount of skin and on to how beautiful the necklace is. This Swarovski Cube Scarf Necklace is just the ticket. The necklace is rhodium-plated and has cubic-cut Comet Argent Light crystals which being this colour means they will match anything. For effortless beauty where with a strapless LBD.

You can purchase the 120 cm Cube Scarf Necklace for £101.50 down from £145 at www.swarovski.com.

Limited Edition ‘Heaven Sent’ Eight Hour Cream

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

eight-hour-cream.jpgCelebrating 70 years in the beauty business, Elizabeth Arden has launched a limited edition version of its iconic and acclaimed Eight Hour Cream.

The worldly adored miracle cream soothes and restores skin and can often be found pictured in a celebrity make up bag, dominating fashion beauty print. Apparently it’s an absolute must when flying as skin often dehydrates when you’re so high in the air, so I read. This year to celebrate Elizabeth Arden will donate £1 from every Eight Hour Cream sale to Look Good Feel Better, a cancer charity. A beauty must have!

Get your vintage inspired, packaged Elizabeth Arden, Eight Hour Cream, available at Boots costing £15 for a 30ml tube.
