Stella McCartney for Adidas A/W

Stella McCartney has just launched her A/W range for Adidas as part of their established sports collaboration. I have been lucky enough to sample some of the range recently courtesy of the PR and have been road testing the above items at my local gym (clockwise: Studio Image Parka, Run Graphic Tee, Run Seven-Eights Tights and Laptop Bag).  

The idea of the collection is to design a collection which reflects the style of each of the major fashion capitals which are captured above (L-R: New York, London, Milan and Paris). My favourite is the Milan capsule collection, it encapsulates 
 Milanese style by being sleek, chic and most importantly, black. Just as we have become to rely on with Stella, the items look great but most importantly are a great fit and incredibly comfortable which is key when pounding that treadmill.

NARS Autumnal Shades

On Thursday night I attended the NARS A/W collection launch courtesy of Beauty Seen PR. The new collection is a showcase of rich autumnal shades with beautiful strong pigments that  will become an essential in any A/W make-up bag. 

I've photographed my key products from the collection above: Vent Glace Duo Eyeshadow, Autumn Leaves Lipstick and Nuku Hiva Eyeliner Stylo. The stylo has been a revelation and it hasn't left my side over the past few days, nor will I be reverting back to an eye liner any time soon. Such precision and ease of application. Perfection!

Charlotte Olympia, Lunatic Clutch

Maybe I'm biased but in my eyes Charlotte Olympia can do no wrong (despite the prices that I would need a trust fund to afford but that's another story...). Charlotte Olympia has launched another must-have item this season which I'm sure every fashion editor worth her 2.55 will be clambering for: the lunatic clutch.

Shopcade - Social Shopping

I’ve found a way to combine two of my favourite passions in life: shopping and social media. A modern day Cher Horowitz indeed. I think that Cher would be proud of my use of Shopcade as it allows me to be inspired by stylish ladies and gents (and be rewarded for it). 

Not only can you shop from the comfort of your sofa, be inspired by the online community but you also get cash back from both the purchases and recommendations you make. For all of you who have long day-dreamed at your desk of being paid to shop, well now it can happen.

More often than not shopping sites are US-specific or only supply a poor range of brands and products. However, Shopcade offers a broad range of well-established and fashionable brands as well as 60 million products. 

 For all of you who wished that Pinterest would launch a shop function so you can purchase those inspired choices, this is the answer that you’ve been waiting for. 

Take a look for yourself on the Shopcade site!

Heladeria La Fiorentina, Seville

I’ve just spent a week on a gastronomic tour of Andalucía (or at least that’s what it felt like) and the award for the ultimate foodie highlight has to be handed to Heladeria La Fiorentina in Seville. This ice-cream parlor bases its most inventive flavours on the city’s most prominent scents, from crema de flor de azahar (cream of orange blossom) to dulce de cherimoya (custard apple). Buen provecho!
