Personality and Attitude

There's something about Uncommonly Beautiful jewellery that I think we can all agree with. IT ROCKS! 

It's not hard to see that the new collection adds personality and lots of attitude to any outfit. These bold pieces not only transforms an outfit it brings kick ass to the forefront!

One for One

As a huge fan of Toms, like many of us are, I was super excited to see Toms' interactive stand at The Other Art Fair on Thursday! Now until the 27th of November they are running a one for one competition, where you can get creative and and design your own shoe!

The lucky winner will get their own personal designed shoe by Spring 2012! Toms anyone? Yes please!

Lego Lust

I know it's a little early to send Santa requests and in fact I don't actually own any double cuff shirts but my golly do I want not one but all three of these lego cufflinks!!!

They are handmade from vintage and secondhand lego pieces! And what I love the most is that you can request mixed colours from Fashion conscience! Anyone fancy one red, one blue? I know I do!

This week I'm in Love with.........

Dr. Haushcka is one of those brands that I cannot stop raving about, not only are they natural but they definitely rate in my top three for beauty brands. Why I hear you ask? as yes there are now tons of natural brands filling the shelves of Whole Foods, Boots and even some supermarkets! Simply because their products are divine and effective!

To keep my face hydrated and smooth I use the rose cream, a rich and beautifully scented cream, for those like me with dry skin it's a winner! once applied your skin feels nourished and deeply moisturised, the rose oil extract from wildly grown rose hips envelop the skin to nourish and protect. It comes in at £23.95 (30ml) but if you want to give it a test drive before you buy the 30ml tube you can do, at only £3.50 from the Dr Hauschka website

To keep your hands smooth and moisturised try the Dr Haushcka hand cream for size, the special Bryophyllum extracts hydrate and regenerate the skin while special oils and waxes protect and soothe the hands.

You have got to see why Dr Hauschka are winners in my books!!! visit their website and get testing!

Pre-Owned Fabulousness

Since the opening of Mary's Living and giving shop for Save The Children last year in Westbourne Grove I have been popping in and out and I know longer want to keep such delights to myself!!! You may have all heard of the shop, I mean come on....... not only has Mary Portas done such an amazing job in raising it's profile but it has to be one of the most fashionable charity shops in London Town! 

Expect to feast your eyes on pre-owned Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Prada and even your favourite ethical brands, I spotted a pair of Toms shoes along with a few Stella McCartney pieces too, all at a fraction of the price! Ladies treat yourselves to something special, with the knowledge of all profits going to the charity Save The Children with a visit to the Mary's Living & Giving shop in Westbourne Grove or Primrose Hill.

Both shops are always looking for donations, so if you've done a clear out recently, take that abandoned black bag of clothes out of the attic and in the very kind hands of the volunteers at one of the stores. Not only will Mary love you for it, but we will too! You know what they say... one woman's trash is another woman's treasure!
