Gant recreated a typical spring day in their GANT showrooms on Basil Street, London a very refreshing sight, given the current circumstance.  Colours in vivid hues or pretty pastels were paired with transferrable prints and detailing and to set the scene - a back drop of spring flowers and trees. The evening was met with thirst-quenching fresh lemonade and delicious finger-licking canap├ęs.

As we head into winter months- it’s not just our wardrobe that changes – our skincare does too… and before those temperatures drop even lower, it’s time to rescue our skin before the full effects of winter kicks in.
Flake away dead skin cells with a good exfoliator. One I would highly recommend at the moment is MAC’s Volcanic Ash Exfoliator – dry skin will not escape this almighty scrub. The result will be:  soft and supple skin ready to take on all weather.
Moisturise more…
 cane and austin
Sooth and soak your skin in a vitamin packed green tea nourishing and retexturing cream byCane & Austin. With glycolic acid to exfoliate and brighten the skins texture you’ll be glowing in no time.
And for a little extra…
Introducing the winter elixir about to take off on QVC, Philosophy recently created a lightweight, detoxifying elixir filled with perfluorodecalin, bringing oxygen straight to the skins cells. Apart from the obvious, the perks of this product are line and blemish-free skin and with that of course – a totally youthful complexion.
Prevent those lips from chapping…
burts bees
Always carry a tube of lip balm in your handbag during these colder times, you will feel much better for it. Chapped lips are not a pretty sight and not to mention painful! Carmex or Burt’s Bee’s is a personal favorite and both give the lips a tingling sensation that make them feel less dry almost immediately.
 A super gentle cleanser…
philosophy elixir
Your skin is at its most delicate and sensitive at this time and so its paramount to make sure you don’t overdo it on acidic and heavily fragranced skincare. The Perricone MD gentle cleanser is perfect, with anti-aging benefits and nourishing olive oil ingredients.
Relax and Soak…
elemental herbology
A hot bath is the best and most relaxing way to nurture your body, when beaten by weather and a velvet skin winter body wash by Elemental Herbology should do just the trick. For extra comfort and total skin transformation , turning your skin from lacklustre to flushed and radiant this botanical body wash is a real god send.

Having never previously owned a Wacoal bra before, I can definitely say I've been turned. A brand renowned for it's extraordinary quality and exquisite fit - I can say for sure this bra did this for me. The Wacoal perfectionist full-figure underwire bra, in a natural shade is a surefire way to perfection for a day-to-day wearing bra.

Its beautifully textured physique in striped and floral lace is soft to touch, made to fit and super comfortable. With absolutely no underwire digging in where it shouldn't. The perfectionist is a structured bra - but with no padding for those who aren't wanting to deceive, just double-lined cups to retain that natural looking shape.  Not to mention for all you bigger busted ladies - this bra keeps a firm grip on your bust, holding everything in its place. It's just perfect.

Yes, it is a little more expensive than your average bra from M & S - but totally worth investing in.

For a not so princely fee, and a whole palette of different hues you can get your hands on this ultimate luxury in lingerie at:
