bright and dipped bottle of Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne.

The ever popular Red Roses scent bottled in a version of beauty graffiti packaging and individually numbered. This limited edition bottle is a part of the Jo Malone London’s boutique installation, named Charlotte’s Corner in Selfridges, which will open on April 1st, 2013. FYI, Charlotte (Stockdale) is Jo Malone’s Style Editor.

So, if you’re a fan, this is not an April MOP, prepare yourself to get one out of 300. Good luck. 


Invasion of Dior at the uber famous Knightsbridge’s original, Harrods.

From March 15till April 14, 2013, there’ll be mini exhibitions, wonderful window displays which reconstruct Dior’s façade in 30 Avenue Montaigne, Paris, 50 seats café which will serve Dior-doodled cupcakes and last but not least exclusive Dior products.

Here are some of the exclusive products that really catch my eyes, from teddy bear, snow ball, and a super fabulous Lady Dior bag with tartan covered handles. 


Fashionably spotted in Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring Summer 2013 catwalk, loved by none other Hillary Clinton, and now Cara Delevingne star in the campaign for a hair scrunchie’s company? Oh well…

The new east London-based accessories label, My Crazy Scrunchie (MCS for short) is bringing back the famous hair accessory circa 1980s which featured Cara as one of the model. The duo behind this label, Laura Fraser and Eu Simo Grijalbo are the one who’s also responsible for Vivienne’s Red Label SS 2013 scrunchies.

FYI, the original scrunchie was invented by Philip E. Meyers for a family called “Scrunci” in 1963 as a practical hair accessory. As any (read: most) fashion items, it evolved from time to time, loved back in the days, noted as a notoriously bad-taste accessory, and now…it’s back on trend track! But the big question is: will you wear them again? (Thank God I have short hair).


The first thing that popped out of my head when I heard the word “Graffiti” is vandalism. Until I saw these.

Looking up to wikipedia, graffiti described as writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. Well, for this “Graffiti” by Nails Inc London, it sure put a whole new meaning of graffiti, on different surface. Our nails. 

Limited edition polishes with various particle shapes, sizes and texture, will give our nails a fun and edgy look. As they will create graffiti effect only, make sure you put on your basic nail color first, preferably in white, so it’ll pop out more. Available in four different shades: Brick Lane, Camden Lock, Hoxton Street and Portobello Place, better get them soon as they are limited edition.


Love desserts, love it more when I tried it in a very very nice places around London. 

Number one weakness: cupcakes. When I shopped around at Selfridge’s at Oxford Street, I made the time to have a bite of cupcakes at Lola’s. 

Another favorite place to snack after a long day of shopping: Laduree inside Harrods Knightsbridge. Too bad they don’t carry their cupcakes, I do miss their strawberry rhubarb. Across the road, in Mandarin Oriental Hotel, one of the must try: Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. The Taffety Tart might sound quirky, but delicious to the last crumb. 

High tea is a must thing to do for the ladies in London. I did mine in Hilton Park Lane. No wonder they do have super late dinner, high tea really made my tummy full. 

Another hotel to go to for dessert: Renaissance St Pancras. Gorgeous building established since 1873, it’s a delightful experience just to be there.
