Ciate Haute House Nail Polish

Ciate Haute House sale

This week I was lucky enough to receive the beautiful Ciate Haute House collection of mini nail polishes which includes 5 shades in Fashion Week metallics! With deep autumnal tones of aubergine, plum and petrol, each colour has been created using the brand’s new rich ink formula which translates to smoother application and a perfect shine which looks glossy and luxurious before you even apply a top coat. In fact I actually wore mine here without a top coat at all and you can already see the shine.

Being darker shades, the collection has only just launched to correspond with autumn/winter and whilst the full set would normally cost around £22, I’ve actually found a little private sale on at the moment with European flash sales giant, vente-privee! From today, you can shop a selection of Ciate‘s best-loved polishes as well as some adorable gift sets and collections including Haute House, Beach House (a summer equivalent) and the brand’s incredible Nail Lab which is, as the name rather suggest, a complete kit of nail art creativity for customising your own polishes.

Find out all about the sale which will only last a few days on the vente-privee website, it’s free to register and you’ll instantly have access to a whole universe of discount shopping… it’s very addictive though so you have been warned!

Ciate Flash Sale on vente-privee from the 1st of October to the 6th of October.

Behind-the-Scenes with L.K.Bennett in Paris


For those who follow my Instagram feed, I’m sure you’d have noticed the sudden burst of photos from my backstage shoot with L.K.Bennett for the upcoming flash sale on vente-privee, a private members shopping club from which I’ve already snagged many an incredible bargain (Stella McCartney lingerie for M&S prices is possible!).

An Interview with Perfumer Bertrand Duchafour

L'Artisan Parfumeur

Last week I told you about an exciting project I worked on with Reem of Five Five Fabulous and Olivia of What Olivia Did for today’s brand new sale of L’Artisan Parfumeur fragrances on vente-privee and now I’m ready to fill you in on all the details. Leading up to the sale today, I attended a fragrance workshop together with Reem and Olivia, which was hosted by the brand’s perfume expert, Céline, and the brand’s very own in-house perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour!

Behind-the-Scenes with Five Five Fabulous and What Olivia Did

Atelier Artisan Parfumeur

Last week I had a wonderful time in the company of fabulous bloggers Reem Kanj of Five Five Fabulous and Olivia Grace of What Olivia Did for a day of filming in Central Paris. I’ll soon be able to reveal more about the reason behind this exciting event but for now I wanted to share a few of the pictures from behind the scenes.

Located just across from the Louvre Museum, the shoot took place in the charming little fragrance atelier of Parisian parfumerie, L’Artisan Parfumeur, during which we were treated to a full workshop on the makings of a new scent from start to finish. The 3-hour course was run by the brand’s fragrance expert, Céline, who is so full of enthusiasm and passion for her subject that it’s impossible to image anyone not being swept along in her excitement… I had no idea quite how much though and chemistry is involved in creating the perfect perfume and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at one of my bottles in quite the same way now!

I’ll be sure to let you know more about the event but for now, here are some of our backstage pictures from the shoot!

OPI Runway Minnies and Giveaway

OPI Runway Minnies

Like most girls who enjoy a little pampering and Sunday night manicure sessions in front of the TV, I’m a huge fan of cult nail polish brand, OPI. Any colour you can imagine probably exists in the OPI range and that’s before you even begin on the cute and quirky names for each polish or the super cool themes of their ranges (James Bond, The Muppet Show, Pirates of the Caribbean, Europe, etc).
