Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Spectacle Wearer of the Year 09

When I was growing up, I thought wearing glasses was very uncool. Maybe it was because my dad had the most horrendous 'Should have gone to Specsavers' type that were far too big with shockingly thick frames. I remember him always peering over them, and I used to think, why wear them if you don't actually look into them? Childhood memories aside, I now have far wiser take on glasses which is that with the right shape, colour and frames, glasses can look uber sexy actually. Think, Johnny Depp, Jenny McCarthy and Julia Roberts, who have all at some point looked stylish in spectacles.

It seems fitting then that Specsavers are running a competition to find the 2009 Spectacle Wearer of the Year. The winner will receive a modeling contract with Premier Model Management who have represented Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista and is the current home to Vogue cover girls Georgina Cooper and Kirsty Hume. They’ll also receive an all expenses paid trip to Barbados or St Lucia. Mr. Gok Wan - fashion guru and spectacle wearer himself judging the finalists come October.
