ELEMIS PRO-COLLAGEN MARINE CREAM

11 Apr

Elemis
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I have a number of favorite beauty brands. This is because I am obsessed with beauty. For me, beauty and fashion go hand-in-hand. There are so many fabulous products out there, to tackle all aspects of beauty, that it is important to discover them all! With this in mind, I was thrilled to receive some new additions to my skin-care collection - Over Easter I was sent  a large tub of Elemis'  Pro-collagen Marine cream and a bottle of Japenese Camellia body oil. Fabulous!

My parcel arrived beautifully packaged in a speci ... Read More

SELMA BLAIR AND LITTLE ARTHUR

10 Apr

Selma-and-Arthur
Such a cute pair, mummy Selma Blair and her little man Arthur. Pictured yesterday enjoying a play-date at the park both mother and son were dressed in matching stripes.



Selma is a big fan of laid-back dressing and this boyfriend-jean look is her latest take on what is to be a big trend this season.

Her mini-me, Arthur, was even more casual in cropped pants, Ralph Lauren T-shirt and little addidas trainers. Despite his dressed down attire, he still managed to look like a stylish little dude.

Get the look.

SOMETHING FOR THE BOYS

5 Apr

Work-bench
Having a girl, I never really take much notice of toys for little boys. Bearing this in mind I have made a conscious effort to see what is available for the little men to play with.

I love traditional and wooden children's toys, plastic toys, for me, should remain in the bathroom, or outside. Inside I like to keep it chic. There is so much choice when it comes to choosing the perfect toy and just because it is wooden does not mean it has to be expensive.

So, for the little boys what did I find that I love? - Lots! If I had a little boy I would happily have all o ... Read More

Gossip girl beauty, Olivia Palermo is a real style icon - she always looks so polished.

Spotted out and about recently in a wardrobe-essential pair of leather trousers, chunky grey knit and Caroline Issa for L.K Bennett, Parrot embroidered Courts.



This is a really easy look to achieve with, or without bump,  perfect for date-night or drinks with the girls. (If you are a bit weary of leather, just swap the bottom half for your favorite black leggings) Let the shoes do the talking.

COSEY TOES

3 Apr

Leopard-slippers
How divine are these baby slippers?! I have always struggled to find nice indoor footwear for A and these look just perfect - Chic, cosey and practical.



Since A started walking I have gone through so many pairs of slippers. I am quite fussy and don't like anything branded or garish - I see slippers as a pair of shoes, they should compliment A's outfit, not clash with it. I love the little sheepskin booty styles, but they just don't stay on her feet! I wish I had spotted these sooner, as they definitely would have been clicked home.

Aswell as this g ... Read More
