MARC JACOBS BEAUTY COMES TO LONDON

Marc Jacobs Beauty

So Marc Jacobs Beauty arrived in London a couple of weeks ago and no one knew. Not even British Beauty Blogger! I stumbled upon the entire range of it in the Marc Jacobs Mount Street store (after a quick recce of Celine – retail heaven). It’s not cheap but the colours are stunning and the lipstick packaging is right up there with Chanel’s push-click cases. The staff are super helpful and encourage you to try the products, but I haven’t yet. I definitely will soon though… Continue reading

SEPHORA’S SHOPPABLE INSPIRATION BOARD

Sephora-The-Beauty-Board

Done well, Sephora’s shopping platform could be a gamechanger. Launched two weeks ago, its new Beauty Board is a Pinterest-esque gallery of user-generated photos, which customers engage with, posting reviews, comments and tips. It’s what beauty forums do best, but this adds an all-important shoppable component and the ability to share widely on other platforms. With mobile’s increasing importance in syncing content with commerce, I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot more brands attempting similar feats. Read more here. Continue reading

Venetia-Scott-Orla-Kiely

For any last minute holiday-goers, can I recommend some great travel-friendly fragrances? Cult Beauty alerted me to Le Soft Perfume (£19), a lightweight solid perfume in the prettiest recycled packaging from the ex co-founder of Sephora. As well as delicious scents (I’m wearing La Reine Soleil right now), these stick fragrances nourish, moisturise, firm and restore the skin.  Using all-natural Shea butter, mango butter and tamanu oils, they’re well suited to sensitive skins. Buy it here.

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What do you get your mum for Mother’s Day? I don’t always have to worry about this one as my mum lives abroad and is usually pretty happy with a card, flowers and a phone call. But I think you can’t go wrong with something pretty or pampery in lovely packaging. Here are a few beauty ideas that I like in case you’re still stuck… Continue reading

Introducing Bella Freud scented candles

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bella Freud Candle

I’m a firm believer that your choice of scented candle says a lot about you. Luxe  Diptyques, Jo Malones and Fornasettis all suggest a person who enjoys the finer, prettier things in life  *nods vigorously*.

The fact is, most posh candles last a good age so you don’t really need to replenish. In that way, they’re a little like clothes, accessories, or indeed perfume, more about variety and the sheer delight of having lovely things surrounding you.

Proving my point perfectly is Bella Freud who has just introduced a line of scented candles, daubed with her famous whimsical slogans. Possibly almost better than a ‘Ginsberg is God’ knit in that you can enjoy this every single day – just keep it as a fragrant desk ornament (I certainly will).

The candle is available at Space NK in three varieties at £38 each.
