Clarins Eau Dynamisante*

Clarins Eau Dynamisante

To be completely honest, Clarins has stayed pretty much under my radar for the past couple of years. It wasn’t a company which I though much about, relegating it as a brand geared more towards the more ‘mature’ client.

I would like to say how wrong I was. I have gone 0 – 60 with Clarins, from owning absolutely nothing to grabbing everything from lipgloss to body wash in a three month period. The products are super-high quality and way-luxurious!

I was lucky enough to get sent the 100ml bottle of Eau Dynamisante to sample and review, and I have to say – another score for Clarins. The unisex scent is described as featuring the essential oils of lemon, Patchouli, Ginseng and White Tea and it’s a fresh, pretty, and unusual choice.

I thought I would test it under some hard circumstances – an eight hour Dubai-London flight; and I have to say, the scent stayed with me for hours, and I’m pretty sure it’s the reason I didn’t have to carry my hand luggage off the plane!

The 100ml bottle retails for £29 from and here (US)

The Tiffany Diamond

The Tiffany Diamond

Whilst in Dubai, I was lucky enough to see an exhibition put on by Tiffany which featured the eponymous necklace. Last worn by Audrey Hepburn, the piece was really incredible. I’ve never really been all that interested in yellow diamonds before, but seriously, this thing ruled. I hung out at least three times just ogling the stone. Shown alongside pieces worn by Elizabeth Taylor and Kate Winslet, the necklace really did put everything else into the shade. It’s heading back to New York, so if you can, go – it really is awe-inspiring!



With a whole lot of new-year-resolution enthusiasm I thought it would be a good idea to start a blog. I have always really loved pretty things, and am pursuing a career in fashion. I hope this site will allow me to share my enthusiasm.

2012 was a good year – I graduated from university, interned for Harper’s Bazaar, and lived in Dubai. I hope 2013 will be even better!
