Bobbi Brown’s best buys: the nude edit

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Bobbi Brown Deluxe Lip and Eye Palette

Naked and nude makeup palettes have undoubtedly been a thing this year. You can get them at all price points (just search them on British Beauty Blog, there’s a new one along every week) but for me, you can’t beat Bobbi Brown. The formulations are beautiful, the shades are supremely wearable and they work hard for day and night so that even the expensive ones earn their keep. Continue reading

OTHER X Lee denim collection Aw14

It’s all about designer denim collaborations at the moment. Hot on the heels of J Brand X Simone Rocha comes this collection from OTHER X Lee. To celebrate 125 years of Lee Jeans, the brains behind OTHER Shop have created a ten-piece collection of dip-dyed, fray-edged, embroidered and scribble-printed denim and jersey-wear, affordably priced from £45 to £125.

Chanel No 5 for the bath, the body and the senses

Chanel-no5-Loose-Powder

Ready for some OTT indulgence? If not now, then when? Chanel just keeps delivering with the brand extension pampering products – latest is this cache of Chanel No 5 goodies for ‘the bath, the body and the senses’. That translates to a loose body powder (£50), a body cream (£60) and even a bath soap (a virtually a steal at £22).

Personally I’m most seduced by the soap – who even uses bar soap any more? Continue reading

Would you buy Tom Ford’s minaudiere-friendly Lips & Boys mini lipsticks?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Tom-Ford-Lips-and-Boys

So much hysteria over a lipstick! But you can kind of see why Tom Ford’s Lips And Boys collection of 50 minature lippies is causing a storm. Ford does make exceedingly good lipsticks and these tap into our desire for teeny trinkets while also being rather practical (yep, I totally fell for the marketing schpiel – whoops). Continue reading

Buy it now: Joseph AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Joseph-aw14-look-book

In terms of sheer lust, Joseph is one of the shows I most look forward to at London Fashion Week. It’s the combination of easy, wearable silhouettes, plus inventive styling and perfect casting that results in a memorable show where you genuinely want to buy everything, not just admire from afar.

Joseph’s heritage lies in generously proportioned knitwear and 80s-90s layers, but modern Joseph is much more of a 90s-00s minimalist-masculine mash-up. Continue reading

Crème de la Mer Intensive Revitalising Mask – a hangover cure for your face

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Creme-De-La-Mer-Intensive-Revitalising-Mask

Autumn skin is a bitch isn’t it?

The combo of weird weather, cranked-up central heating, comfort eating, over-drinking and under-exercising all add up to – in my case – bumpy, greige and generally knackered-looking skin. Continue reading

Could Farfetch click & collect be an ecommerce game changer?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

farfetch-click-collect-Celestine-Eleven

Oooh here’s a clever move from Farfetch. It’s just rolled out a new Click & Collect service, whereby you can order from one of its international indie retailers but instead of having your order sent to your home or office, you can pick up from another of its retailers located more conveniently to you. With over 100 boutiques currently taking part globally, this could potentially be a real game changer. Continue reading

Borrowed from the boys: Paul Smith AW14

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

1 PAUL-SMITH-MEN-AW14 7

It seems everyone is jumping on the unisex/androgyny/ambi-sex bandwagon lately, but one of the brands that does it best is Paul Smith. Perhaps it’s not immediately obvious, I just think his menswear – the colours, shapes, prints – swings both ways. Continue reading

DRG Edit: Jo Malone London Christmas treats (going fast…)

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jo-Malone-London-Christmas-cracker-2014

JO MALONE LONDON always crack out the best beauty gifts and novelties for Christmas. They revealed all to the press back in July, as most brands do with their ‘Christmas In July’ showcases. (These are a real treat – M&S pulled out the stops, wheeling in a host of food suppliers to ply us with chocolates, hams, every type of tangerine and satsuma, I won’t go on….) This year we got a mini ice rink and every permutation of Jo Malone London favourites you could hope for.

And now is the time to buy as it has all arrived on counter and some things are already selling out. Continue reading
