STORMY WEATHER (ft. Storm Watches)

I sent my darling sister to a Storm Watches collection preview as I know she goes GAGA for a good watch. She fell in love with the man bags and with the bubble-faced bangle watches. Personally, I'm digging the winter white models in the first image.

Thank you to the Storm Watches team for the invite :)

Magical colour palette, a gorgeous contrast of textures and impeccable styling. But what else would you expect from Emmanuelle?

Winter inspiration

In the short time before I leave for Hong Kong (27 deg forecast for tomorrow), I'm dreaming of my inspirations for winter: Opulet violet and burnished auburn make up, Glittery shoes, Raw metal accessories, Fuzzy jumpers, Shearling coats and Leather, leather, leather.

What are you craving this winter?

Baby, you're a firework

Happy Guy Fawkes everyone! Just got back from an awesome fireworks show and am getting ready to dance the night away. What have we all got planned for tonight?

Although Bonfire night is about chargrilled sausages, hog roast with apple sauce and a generous glug of mulled wine to get you in a Christmassy mood, I think that a bonfire CAKE looks cool and would go down a treat at any fireworks party.

How to make it?

Simply arrange increasingly smaller red velvet or chocolate cakes on top of each other to make a bonfire shape, smother in cream cheese icing, stick chocolate fingers or flakes all over it.

Serve with a sparkler stuck in the top and a wee dram of whisky or something to warm the cockles.


Although its bonfire night and I'm swathed in layers of chunky knitwear, I can't help but dig Kristen Stewart looking relaxed and happy at a hand/footprint ceremony in a S/S 2012 Marios Schwab dress with checkered vans (although she changed into gorgeous louboutins later).

Definitely the new party combo for next summer.
