All For Eve

You’re going to get to know these three words pretty well over the coming months: All For Eve is a new brand founded by George Hammer of Urban Retreat fame that raises funds for the significantly underfunded area of gynaecological cancers. Because cancer of the ovaries and other gynaecological areas still need so much research,... Read More

Dior J’Adore Limited Edition Amphora

Dior J'Adore Limited Edition Amphora
Just in case anyone has recently won the lottery/discovered buried treasure/robbed bank etc, I thought I’d flag up the amazing Amphora from Dior for Selfridges. With only 10 available, the bottles are individually made with an engraved eight point star inspired by mosaic tiling from Christian Dior’s childhood home. The bottle, with handpainted gold edging... Read More

Elemis Candles

Elemis Candles
While Elemis is better known for gorgeous skin care, I’ve got to say they are rocking it with their candles this year.

Embargo Buster

Embargo Buster
Some brands are still trying to tell us how they’d like their product publicised by us and recommended to readers by us, thank you very much. Pointless to invite on-line writers to a launch in November and insist it can’t be spoken about until February 2010. So, hope you’ll all love the new Vaseline body... Read More

Quite Right, Mrs White

Quite Right, Mrs White
I love these new ‘Old Soak’ bathing salts from apothecary style bath and body range Mrs White. There’s nothing old fashioned about bathing salts these days, and I swear by a sea salt bath for soothing shopping induced aches and pains. The Mrs White range uses English sea salt and pure aromatherapy oils to make... Read More
