Aerin’s New York City Color

August 30, 2013

Aerin’s such a discreet plush little beauty brand. It defines that Upper East side lifestyle where wealthy women with expensively highlighted hair drift from boutique stores to brunch at Balthazar. Aerin simply reeks of all American East Coast Class where week-end trips to the Hamptons are de rigeur. As such it’s been criticised by some […]

Atkinsons 1799 – The Smells

August 28, 2013

I wrote very recently about a re-vamped, re-launched brand, Atkinsons 1799 and how this suddenly appeared, pouf!, as if from nowhere. Like any perfume mad person, it’s great to know the history and how the brand has been re-energised and re-visioned but would the new scents live up to the hype? I say new, as […]

What? Harpers Bazaar & Bicester Village To Launch a Pop-Up?

August 28, 2013

It’s not only new designers, retail brands and art galleries who are taking the opportunity to pop-up in unused retail spaces from East to West London and beyond. Apart from introducing new names and ideas to consumers in an ideal target area, the pop-ups have a quirky feel of ‘get it while you can’. And […]

Who Art Thou Atkinsons 1799?

August 27, 2013

When a beautiful, quality, bright orange carrier with purple satin handles was delivered to my door, I didn’t recognise the name – Atkinsons, London 1799. Now, since I know my heritage brands, this flummoxed me. Was there a fabulous British heritage brand kicking around on Bond Street that somehow I’d missed? A bit like Harry […]

Tom Ford Beauty Autumn’13 Colour Collection

August 26, 2013

It is no secret that Tom Ford loves ‘70s  sensual glamour – the hedonism, the big hair, the sleek sexiness of body-contouring fluid jerseys & sequins and the whole late ‘70s iconic Studio 54 party-to-excess vibe. So, it’s not really surprising that Mr Ford continues to wow us with a new beauty colour palette that […]

Oliver Sweeney & Oliver Proudlock Celebrate Collaboration in Harvey Nichols

August 25, 2013

It always seemed to me a strange collaboration – Oliver Sweeney’s hand-made leather loafers,  a brand so respected within the industry, teaming with a newbie t-shirt & jeans brand, Serge deNimes owned by Oliver Proudlock (yes, him, the sweet bespectacled one from Made in Chelsea). Seeing the hoards of just-out-of-Uni, shiny haired, smiley Fulhamites gathered […]

A Chutzpah look back over the week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s.” LOVING New! Coco Noir Moisturising Body Lotion & Foaming Shower Gel (200ml) – Funny,  I always assumed that these beauties already existed since Coco Noir is one of Chanel’s sultriest perfumes and fragrance layering seems a no-brainer.  Well, […]

I honestly bless the day that I discovered this product. I can’t believe I lived most of my life without one. I can promise you here and now ladies, if you have shoulder-length or longer hair (or have a young child who struggles with hair washing and brushing), this product will make your life infinitely […]

When did Customer Service get so Inflexible & Loyalty so Unrewarded?

August 23, 2013

It really isn’t my intention to get into ranty mode on a Friday but its seems that BT can wind up even the calmest of souls. Tweet about BT and just see the amount of responses that you get from fellow sufferers who have tried to remain loyal but end up thwarted, dismayed and frustrated […]
