If like me you are a nail polish junky you will be super excited to see the next big thing by nail polish brand Ciate. The Ciate Caviar Manicure kit is basically a manicure with tiny pearls that are applied directly on top of wet nail polish. It gives the prettiest textured finish I have seen and it is available in black, white and rainbow (the black and white being my favourite). It is available to purchase at www.ciate.co.uk priced at £18.00 but there is a huge waiting list a present so you will need to be patient ladies.

On Thursday evening I had the pleasure of attending an event at the Matthew Williamson boutique on Bruton Street, London. Matthew was there in person chatting to his guests, talking us through his collections and signing copies his book. I had the opportunity to chat with him and pose for a photograph and I have to say he was truly lovely, so warm and humble and so talented. So thank you Matthew for making us all feel so welcome and keep doing what you do so well.

Just as the name suggests I am quite sure that the new nail polish shade for fall 2012 from Chanel will cause a frenzy. This pretty greyish taupe creme polish aptly named Frenzy was created by Peter Philips to compliment the mineral and crystal themed collection and make-up on the Fall Winter 2012-13 runway. Available from Chanel boutiques and counters September.

Now we have officially hit Spring the high end stores are awash with silk pyjama style pants, and at some point the high street will follow suit. I cannot wait to wear my 13 Crosby pants that have been sat patiently in my closet since that chilly December day when I made the purchase, and although I don't feel brave enough to wear them yet (needs to be slightly warmer for me) I will be teaming mine with a contrasting silk blouse and some chunky Celine shoes from the Spring/Summer collection. If you are fashion enough to try them here are some of my favourites.

In my make-up bag for Spring I am coveting shades of nude and gold, they are soft and feminine and worn with a lightly bronzed (thanks to Givenchy Mister Radiant) and dewy skin they perfectly compliment the new seasons pastel colour palette.Here are my make-up bag must haves.

Now, this is one closet I would love to raid. The Chanel closet housing the Pre Fall 2012 Paris-Bombay collection has to be the most covetable I have ever seen, just look at those dresses, jewels and handbags all carefully stored in velvet lined trays and behind stylish glass doors. I love how the necklaces have been hung to prevent that annoying tangle.....now all I need to do is win the lottery, lol.

Ok, it is not very practical for Spring or Summer but this hat is perfect for Fall/Winter 2012 and would work in seamlessly with my closet, so, I have to say I have become a little obsessed. I have an oversized Burberry Prorsum beanie that I wear in the winter but this one could very soon be taking it's place. I love how the veil adds that feminine touch to an otherwise masculine accessory.

Oh dear, I dread seeing the new Fall/Winter collections, not because I don't like fashion (I wish I didn't sometimes, but I can't help the way I am made, hehehe) it's simply because I am more of a winter dresser than summer so there is always lots of fabulous new pieces for me to spend my money on. These three Celine bags are top of my 'Wish List' although I think buying two of the Cabas bags in one season is a little naughty, If I had to buy one the shearling bag at the top would win hands down.

Last week I received this rather on trend invite from Harvey Nichols to their Spring Summer 2012 fashion show. The outside sleeve is a fabulous spring like neon yellow with a laser cut design just so you can see the candy pink invite peeking through...just gorgeous.
