Spring is in the air, or at least its suppose to be! The Chelsea Flower Show has begun and its influence has spread far beyond its perfectly trimmed hedges and white picket fences. It seems that just as florals start to bloom outside our windows, the world of fashion is coming up roses also.
In my opinion, running is a lonely past-time, so you can believe my surprise when I discovered that Nike had teamed up with fashion magazine ELLE to create a RUNNING event that both fuses and celebrates sport, style, design and culture in a way that is exciting and innovative.
There’s nothing we love more than a striking black and white campaign. Saint Laurent’s latest campaign tells a moody, seductive and dramatic tale, all due to lack of colour. Creative Director Hedi Slimane cast the ever-so-cool Freja Beha and shot her in their new boutique on Avenue Montaigne, Paris.
What are the key ingredients to an outfit that turns heads? Some might think it’s all in what items of clothing are worn, but really it can all be in a belt, hat or lip colour. A boring black dress that you’ve had for years and years can be easily revamped with the right necklace or statement shoe.
LAMBORGHINI are celebrating 50 big years in style by collaborating with the iconic shoe brand CAR SHOE (Gruppo Prada) and creating limited edition driving styles. CAR SHOE’S famous Moccasin’s will feature in three specific colours to mark the milestone and will each carry a special Lamborghini commemorative shield.

Second to the Oscars, The Annual Met Ball is the most talked about event when it comes to fashion on the red carpet. The stars are accompanied by their favorite designers who proudly show off their most prized creations; to which are either worshiped or ripped apart by the general public.
It’s the time of year when there’s a certain something in the air. It comes with the change in the weather. The mercury only needs to rise a touch for the city to come alive. So with that, we excitedly begin to plan our summer holidays.
The second major watch event for the year took place this week in Basel Switzerland, showcasing the latest creations, movements and complications from some of our favourite brands. BaselWorld 2013 saw an incredible mix of impressive pieces for serious collectors only and then more visually appealing watches from the likes of Chanel and Chopard.

We’re seriously excited about the May release of Baz Luhrmann’s, The Great Gatsby. Not only are we excited about the mere fact that Gatsby is one of our all time favourite films, but we’re eager to feast our eyes on the costumes and in particular the jewellery exclusively created by Tiffany & Co.
There’s a noticeable change in the weather. Spring is here and we couldn’t be happier to hang up our heavy coats, ditch the layers and jump into something lighter, brighter and a little fun. We’re currently seeking attention-grabbing jewellery, the perfect white dress to go with our tans, the ultimate sandals and of course the perfect bikini.
A 34.65 carat pink diamond went under the hammer this week at Christie’s fetching an incredible $39.3 million dollars and a home for one very lucky lady. The diamond nicknamed ‘Princie’ is the second highest price paid at auction for a stone and one of the largest pink diamonds to ever come on the market.

We all have responsibilities but our key responsibility should be to look out for our own wellness in order to benefit ourselves and our loves ones. This is the key ingredient to a long life of health and happiness. As an RYT yoga teacher ( I am also currently studying to become a health counsellor with the Institute of Intergrative Nutrition in New York), I see and meet a lot of people who are in a diet rut.
Lanvin’s ‘Arpège’ is one of those iconic fragrances that has stood the test of time. With so many fragrance releases every year, only a mere few tend to stick around as pillars for the brand andicons in the fragrance world. Lanvin is well known for their exquisite and unique bottles, with Arpège’s black and gold flacon being no exception.
We were blown away by how amazing model Karolina Kurkova looks in the March edition of Elle Czech. At 29 (which is ancient in model years) she is one of those rare models who just seems to get better with age.
