Shourouk Fall Winter 2012

I first discovered Shourouk jewelry while in Paris around 4 years ago, since then I have been obsessed with the brand. Net-a-Porter.com has recently picked up the collection but they sell hot cakes so you need to be quick off the mark. I have fallen in love with the Fall /Winter collection and would be hard pressed to select just one piece. The Fall 2012 range has been inspired by the Russian Royal Court, with the major highlights for the season being the stunning bib necklaces and the beautiful embellished satchel bags. I love the way Shourouk mixes the colour, shape and size of jewels to create heirloom pieces that are so original and bold...perfect to layer or dress up a plain tee.

Chanel Fall 2012 Nail Polish

This Fall Chanel's Global Creative Beauty Director Peter Philips has taken inspiration from Alfred Hitchcock's films by naming the three new 'must have' nail polish shades after his films. Frenzy, a pretty lavender grey,Vertigo an almost black lacquer with red glitter particles and Suspicious a dazzling fuchsia are the perfect hues for fall, they will be available at Chanel counters from September 2012. I predict mile long waiting lists, so ladies form an orderly line now.

Charlotte Olympia Pandora Fall 2012

I am a HUGE fan of leopard print and have fallen head over heels for this gorgeous 'Pandora' clutch by Charlotte Olympia. Each season Charlotte Dellal does a new variation of this classic clutch by tweaking the clasp design and changing the design of the removable purse...this leopard print is my favourite to date as I love the sophisticated tones of the purse and the crystal studded spider clasp and as it come with a gold and black purse this bag can be teamed with anything you choose.

Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla

While strolling through the Harrods lingerie department the other day I stumbled across this beautiful collection by Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla. Being a lover of nude shades it stopped me in my tracks but after further investigation I realised that there was a downside to this range and that is because it is leather it is dry clean only....now. I have to say I am on very good terms with my cleaner but I do draw the line at getting him to clean my bra and knickers, so, sadly these have not become part of my collection.
