This Week’s Beauty Hits and Misses

Birthday Beckham

David Beckham turned 37 yesterday and celebrated the occasion with a Lakers game and a bit of a PDA with wife Victoria. We could think of worse ways to spend a birthday!

Dior Croisette

The absolutely gorgeous Dior Croisette summer 2012 collection landed on our desk this week, and we cannot get enough of the muted brights and beautiful textures. With new shade of the Dior Vernis, the Dior Addict Lipstick, new colourways in the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow and a showstopping Diorskin Palette, the launch is set to be a big one. The swatches and the release date are coming very soon…

Dream Creams

This week has also seen the launch of some very luxurious new scented body creams: the Paco Rabanne Lady Million Queen Size Body Cream, and the Jimmy Choo Glittering Perfumed Body Cream. Each sumptuous formula is the perfect fusion of deep hydration and perfume, making the skin feel supple and soft with a beautiful scent.

Hair Odour

Our hair picks up the slightest smell, from smoke to the scent of cooked food. As the weather starts to turn brighter we’ll be battling the barbecue aromas with the newly released Swarovski Aura Mariage Hair Mist, a sweet scent with notes of bright litchi, aromatic tea leaves, and a bouquet of peony and lotus in the heart.

Holiday Blues

Summer holidays are so near yet so far. In a few months time we’ll be sunning ourselves somewhere lovely, but until then we’ll be wearing the limited edition Escada Island Kiss fragrance and recreating a tropical paradise in our minds.


Rain, rain, everywhere. This week saw some pretty horrendous flooding in most parts of the country that  not only made our feet pretty soggy, but the better part of our legs, too. We’re so happy that the sun is back out again – bring on May!
