Friday Favourites

Peplum Cardigan
There’s little I love more than a good knit- it’s just so pretty!

Culottes
These culottes make me feel all 2007 when my culottes were my prize possession. Although I think I’d give the bright pink gloves a miss this time around…

DKNY Handbag
Who doesn’t need a little splash of colour in these wintery months?

Max Factor CC Stick/ Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer
I’ve felt recently that my under eye circles have been particularly bad but to be honest for the last few years I’ve consistently struggled with dark, mainly blue and purple, under eyes- what can I say chronic pain is hardly becoming. So I thought I’d invest in a couple of products to see if I could sort things out and I went for these little beauties. The Max Factor CC stick is yellow which claims to counteract the colour of under eye circles and the Maybelline concealer was certainly due to the Essie Button effect. I’ve only been using both of these for a couple of days but I’m liking them a lot. I think my peepers are looking brighter so I for one am a happy bunny.

Spiral (ou Engrenages si vous l’appelez par son nom réel) on BBC 4
My favourite new programme, so much so that I am watching season 5 (which is on BBC 4 at the moment) and season 1 to catch up at the same time. If you love a good crime/detective story then you’ll love this little Parisian number.

Shoe of the Week

Hello darlings,

Sometimes I think that there is nothing prettier than a pair of black heels done extremely well. These little beauties from Carvela are a prime example…

I love their simplicity with the flash of an orange sole. I’d wear them with a pair of black jeans and a chiffon blouse for an easy yet sophisticated evening look.

Style Inspiration: Rosamund Pike

Rosamund Pike seems to be the woman of the moment. Alongside her stunning performances she hasn’t disappointed in the style stakes. She is entirely sophisticated and such a lady. I love her use of block colours, ladylike shapes and texture. An effortless beauty…

Quick Review: How to be Parisian Wherever You Are

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/270/37728718/files/2015/01/img_4323.jpg

There has been a lot of hype around this book this year so after having received it for Christmas, I couldn’t wait to dive in and see for myself what all the fuss was about. I love it. I read in two days, cover to cover, and now deem it as one of the books I can see myself referring to still in many years to come.

These four women, the authors Audrey, Anne, Caroline and Sophie, are geniuses giving an insight into a somewhat elusive world. There are lines which will live with me for the rest of my life. It has given me a new outlook or at least a few new things to think about. A wonderful read, guiding you through the ins and outs of a Parisian’s busy schedule.

It is less of a book and more of a philosophy.
