Combining both the youth and enchantment of Disney with quality associated with […]

Good Charma

Pam Fink, the New York based jewellery designer, has devised a jewellery range that incorporates all her beliefs and loves.  A peripatetic traveller, after exploring Southeast Asia and Indonesia, Fink fell in love with Bali and its exuberant culture.  It was during her fourth visit that the invasion of Iraq took place, which inspired Fink to design jewellery which would exude her values of peace and love.  Coupled with inspiration from her grandmother’s exotic jewellery collection, along with her father’s superstition, Good Charma was created. With ten themes to choose from such as luck, friendship, love, protection or peace, and […]

Idylle is the first perfume created for Guerlain by Thierry Wasser.

With ‘Twilight’ and ‘True Blood’s’ success, they are everywhere – so it comes as no surprise that fashion designers are now wanting in on the action.

No Frizz

For years hair products have been claiming they can give volume, de-frizz and generally revamp your dead tresses with one large scoop of their product, so beauty lovers might be forgiven for being dubious about another product – ‘No Frizz’ – vying for global success.  However, this one looks more promising… To start with it is the brainchild of Professor Robert Langer, a prize-winning Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) chemist, so this time we are in the hands of a scientist.  Although a slight diversion from his other medical feats, such as growing ears on the back of mice or creating […]

Best Dressed 09

  Best Dressed lists for 09 is named by Vanity Fair and it’s quite a list. Brad Pitt managed to make it on there for apparently his love of accessories. We hope they are talking about his love for accessories like sunglasses and man-bags not his children. But we must say Angelina Jolie does make a rather good accessory for him. Unfortunately she did not make this years prestigious list. There were some first time names like actresses Penelope Cruz and Anne Hathaway who both made it onto the women’s list which is not always easy. Also to make the list […]
