Yesterday was such a perfect spring day in London – sun shining, birds singing, crocus on display, you get the idea. This is my absolutely favourite time of year because not only does it seem as though anything is possible (if you didn’t quite manage it in the New Year, spring is, surely, the time for a fresh start); but it also means that there are all sorts of gorgeous fashion and beauty spring buys around. So, here’s what I’m loving this month:
1. My new handbag from Peony & Moore.
I’m off to the Naming Ceremony of P&O’s new cruise ship Britannia next week, and The Queen is doing the honours. So a girl needs a posh handbag for such a glamorous occasion, right? Peony & Moore are, appropriately, a British brand with an exquisite range of luxury leather handbags, all beautifully designed, chic and effortlessly elegant. My new handbag is the Phoebe Hobo in vanilla cream (£149). Isn’t it beautiful?
What I particularly love is the tassel and gold detailing…
…plus the signature striped lining is so smart, isn’t it? I big fluffy heart my new bag, and it’s definitely fit for The Queen.
2. Clinique’s Aromatics in White All About Shadow 6-Pan Palette
Spring is of course the perfect time to give your look a little update, and Clinique’s All About Shadow eyeshadow palette, inspired by its new fragrance Aromatics in White, is just stunning, with fabulously flattering shades of gold, coffee, chocolate and bronze. RRP £30, available from Travel Retail locations worldwide and Clinique.
Continuing the white theme… my signature scent is Michael Kors by Michael Kors. I didn’t think it was possible to love another fragrance quite so much, but this new limited edition number is absolutely divine, sweet, heady and sexy, with notes of tuberose, freesia and musk; basically the scent of spring. Love that the packaging is so simple, too. Adore (RRP £51, available from World Duty Free.)
