Last Wednesday, in the first properly spring-like week of the year, I got a fabulous whiff of the new Cire Trudon candles. There are three in the Les Belles Matieres range – a fruit, a wood and a floral.
One of my personal ‘style signifiers’ is a short gold chain necklace. It’s a delicate slither of a thing with dainty handcuffs as a clasp and it gets a big mention in my book, The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman (*cough* perfect mothers day gift idea *cough*).
For something so discreet it gets a lot of compliments! (more…)
For day to day, I’m all about a cream eyeshadow. Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre in Rouge-Gorge is my go-to when I want to look ‘awake’ (it’s orange in the pot but more of a tan wash on the lid) and the cream-stick formulations from Bobbi Brown and Chanel are amazing for giving a little iridescence for evening. I just put them on with my finger and blend. (more…)
What’s your can’t-live-without make-up product? After foundation and concealer (boring!), mine’s lip gloss. It may fade in and out of fashion but it’s never far from my face, especially now when everyone’s banging on about matte lipstick (gag) and ombre lips (just, no).
