Spring Brights

02149_ED1811

J. Crew is my true one-stop-shop. Seriously, there is nothing that it produces which is less than swoon-worthy. These earrings are newly released, and they make me hurt! I love pink, I love neon, and I love a bit of sparkle. The shape of them is beautifully elegant, and colours would update any outfit! These are definitely on my wish-list!

The earrings are $78 at www.jcrew.com

The New Nails

I do wish I was one of those people who had a certain ‘thing’ – a red lip I never left the house without, a winged eyeliner perhaps? Well, I’m not – I’m far too easily distracted for anything like that, which is why I will be experimenting all Spring long with neutral nails. Buff, pink and nude – the nuances may be small, but they’re there, and they are the reason why my nails always look the same, but slightly different!

I have never tried any products by Aesop – but if their Reverence Aromatique Hand Balm is anything to go by, I have really been missing out! View Full Post

I’m in no way Irish – but I am in love with Lily Pulitzer’s illustration for the most adult of holidays – for me it really shoes how it is the start off spring. View Full Post

If you are in London at any point between 16th March and 14th April I would strongly suggest you run (don’t walk) to Harrods. As if the store isn’t perfect enough View Full Post

Bumble and Bumble Semisumo*

DSC00677

I’m in dire need of having my hair done – my roots are really horrific – which means ponytails are currently my hairstyle of choice. High and bouncy, low and sleek, and everything in between are keeping me sane until my appointment (I am literally counting the days). So that my hair isn’t the complete bain of my life, I like them tidy – which is where Semisumo comes in.

I haven’t used pomade before, but with a couple of wispy layers at the front, I felt I needed to keep them under control. Once my hair is up, I simply put a teeny tiny amount onto my fingertips, rub them together, and smooth them over my crown. Hello to a tidy and shiny do!

The pomade feels more like a balm than I was expecting, and there is no stickiness -at all. Instead all you get is your hair sitting perfectly in place, with the added bonus of shine and a killer scent. I can imagine that this would be an incredible product if you have short, styled hair, but I am loving it despite my hair reaching past my shoulders. I have been using this everyday, and I have barely made a dent in it!

Semisumo is priced at £21.50 US readers can find it here
