LAQA & CO Nail Pens

LAQA & CO Nail Pens
It’s instant want with these gorgeous, high gloss nail pens from American brand, LAQA & CO. The thing I like most of all is that each shade uses a different young designer to embellish the packaging (and I love a good bit of packaging) so each polish is not only unique in colour, but also... Read More

Kate Middleton's Wedding Fragrance
Kate Middleton, now of course, The Duchess of Cambridge, apparantly wore the beautiful White Gardenia Petals fragrance from Illuminum to wed her handsome prince. The scent begins with a top note of coconut bursting into a heart of ylang ylang, muguet (lily of the valley) and jasmine. Amber wood is the bottom note.  In keeping... Read More

No More Waity, Katie – The Lipgloss

No More Waity, Katie - The Lipgloss
I know that lots of bloggers absolutely loved the butterLONDON No More Waity, Katie nail polish, but butter have sneaked in a Waity Katie lipgloss over in the States. Unfortunately, it isn’t available in the UK (oddly, since this is where it’s all at, Katie-wise). But, what I’m hoping is that it’s the first of... Read More

Eating My Words: Lumiere Byzantines de Chanel Limited Edition Palette
An eagle-eyed reader has pointed out the (currently) US only Lumiere Byzantines Palette just when I was bemoaning the fact Chanel haven’t done anything interesting in the limited edition stakes for a while.

Chanel Soliel Tan De Chanel 4 Facettes Bronzing Powder

Chanel Soliel Tan De Chanel 4 Facettes Bronzing Powder
Although I’ve had a little play with yellow Mimosa nail polish, the likeliest candidate for a summer sell out, I’m easily more swayed by this gorgeous bronzer. I just love that strip of ripe mango that livens it all up so beautifully. It’s part of the Les Fleurs D’Ete De Chanel Summer Collection arriving on... Read More
