Katy Perry's Purr

There's a new celebrity fragrance in town, this time by Katy Perry.  I'm personally not a fan of those type of things, although I have to admit that Still by Jennifer Lopez is one of my most favorite smells of all time. But that's about it.  Call me a perfume snob but I would find it a bit tacky to be asked what I'm wearing and answering "Erm, it's Katie Price/ Paris Hilton actually".  I made my way to Selfridges, as this is the exclusive stockist of Perry's "Purr".  Thankfully, my impulsive urge to buy it just for the sake of having the bottle had evaporated faster than a cheap cologne. The smell is far too sickly sweet for me since I prefer fresher and crispier notes. But truth must be said, the bottle is just super kawaii.

Giant Hermes Kelly bag

 What you see on the image above is not a fashionista's hallucination that came as a result of Chanel perfume overdose.  This is the new installation of the iconic Hermes Kelly bag in Dublin's Brown Thomas store to promote the Marvel Room.  The 12ft bag is designed precisely to specifications and allows any visitor to walk inside it and watch a few films about the history of the original bag.  The bag will travel to several European cities and I  really hope that it will make its way to London soon! It takes the concept of a big bag to a whole another level - you can actually fit all of your belongings inside it (well, almost).


Jimmy Choo scarves and how to wear them

With the winter already upon us (well, in London anyway), come great news that Jimmy Choo has launched a collection of scarves that come in silk and cashmere. There's loads to choose from including the iconic animal prints that are so typical of the brand.  I decided to add a really useful video from YouTube that shows you different ways to wear a scarf this winter.  Enjoy the chills!
