Miss Selfridge x Gossip Girl Collection

It was announced a while ago that UK retailler Miss Selfridge ( the cheaper,party girl sister of the legendary Topshop) was teaming up with the people over at Gossip Girl HQ to create a set of looks inspired by the outfits sported by Blair,Serena,Jenny and Rat Tail Hair-Sorry *Vanessa* in the show.

I was uber excited because I'm a (not too) closet Gossip Girl fanatic. Sure the books are better...but Chuck's also gay in the books and we wouldn't have Ed Westwick otherwise.....

Anyway... it launched online this morning and I have to say I'm still on the fence about it. Here's a sample of what they served up:


girly pieces with a punky/grunge twist.
( Racoon-esque eye makeup not included)


sexy,figure hugging dresses with a sophisticated vibe
( Nate not included)


Ethnic,tribal inspired relaxed look


pretty bows,frills-you know the drill.

So.. whaddaya think?
I think I like "Blair" the most!

Review: Lush Creme Anglaise Body & Hand Cream

The best thing about this is the smell! It is described as Vanilla and Almond but I could mostly just smell vanilla (which I love anyway!).It is very very sweet so if you like more spicy smells this isn't for you!

It is a very rich,creamy formula which rubs in easily. It isn't greasy but personally I wouldn't use it on my face.

I love the little "made by" stickers! Thanks Iko! :)

It is a little expensive at £25 (I think) but it's well worth it and makes a nice change from my usual Coco butter!

Overall- 10/10

Products that don't suck: April Edition

Remington GENIUS hair straighteners.

I've been looking for a new straightener for a while. Ideally I would heart a pair of GHD's but money doesn't grow on trees! So.... I saw these Remington Genius straighteners for 50% off in Argos and had to grab them! They heat in 15 seconds,have adjustable temperature control up to 230c and floating ceramic plates.

They are pretty small and the LCD display temperature control is just what I need because I need to stop frying my hair. It also has a lockable function so they don't flip open when you put them on a flat surface.
It also came with a cool storage bag to put them in when you are on the go,which is super useful for me because my last straighteners died because someone trod on them!
I tried them on my sister who has really coarse hair and it usually takes her FOREVER to straighten it and even then it's not really poker straight. (haha do you think my sister's "nightie chic" look will catch on?!)


Halfway through and it was dead straight. It got hot sooo quickly and didn't lose heat. I did burn my fingers a few times too!

I'm not sure how long the offer will last the RRP is £69.99 I think!

Overall 9/10.
