TOWIE star, Samantha Faiers‘ recent debut of ‘La Bella’, is already proving to be a huge hit. With it becoming number 1 celebrity fragrance launch of 2014, it has topped the likes of One Direction and Britney, in just 3 weeks! (Wowza!). One of the exceptionally exciting aspects to interning at Grabble, mean’t that attending events, press days and being in the know, in regards to the latest Fashion and Beauty news, were key to networking opportunities and exciting Blog content for them. As a result, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend some, with the Sam Faiers ‘La Bella’ launch, being one of my first!

I adore an ever growing fragrance collection, and I also love the ever so humble lady behind my new favourite! Samantha Faiers has been known for her elegant and eye-catching style, which is another reason why I’m a huge fan, but I’m also now very aware of her professional and sweet natured approach, to whatever she seems to puts her hand too! Whilst attending the ‘La Bella’ launch, I was able to speak with not only Sam’s PR team about the work that’s gone into the fragrance, but Sam herself! It’s reassuring to me and I’m sure many others, knowing that Sam was fully involved in every process of ‘La Bella’, and wasn’t just another Celeb to put her name on a product.

The fragrance itself is genuinely delicious! I was fortunate enough to be given a bottle as part of a thank you goodie bag, and I have been wearing it every day! The scent evokes a fresh balance of sweet and musky tones, with a very feminine approach to the overall composition and packaging. The bottle oozes glamour, and every element, from the font – to the pop of the lid, is elegantly done! To me, it’s also a fragrance that’s very versatile according to occasion, and could suit all ages, as I took ‘La Bella’ home to show my younger sister and mother, and they both loved it!

Have you tried ‘La Bella’ yet? If so, do let me know you’re thoughts! It’s available to purchase from The Fragrance Shop online and in stores. Congrats Sam and what a beautiful launch! See below for more images and links.

Valentines luxury lusting | For him | Feat MARK / GIUSTI

It isn’t everyday we get to spoil our man, with more than just our feminine charm and joyful presence! So, knowing Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I’d put together a little luxury lusting post, perfect for him! I have been loving lusting over luxury goods and items for a while now and have found an increasing interest in this dreamlike section of the Fashion and lifestyle industry. There is just something about true passion, craftsmanship and quality, that draws me into the design and consumption aspect of an item, and the new items from MARK / GIUSTI do just that!

Me and my guy have been together 6 years now and I’m always looking for fresh, new ways to show my love towards him and his life. He’s the type that, like me, really appreciates the finer things in life, even if it is just lusting over them! He is also a lover of slick design and hates being un-organised. As a result, an item from the MARK / GIUSTI website, would suit him down to the ground, especially when aiding towards his on the go working life. The designs from MARK / GIUSTI, focus upon attention to detail, art inspired fabric lining and completing those finishing touches, such as top stitching, with precision and perfection, which I know would be sure to impress.

Together, we love to travel, even if it’s a little weekend trip away to London, and I know we both struggle with luggage, in more ways than one! All those times squeezing through tube barriers…let alone the actual tube, wading your way down busy Oxford Street and waiting around with your belongings, (usually with more than one bag), to check in, is just a bit of a frustrating and unneeded element of our day. However, the MARK / GIUSTI luxury travel bags, especially, look like the perfect sized accompaniment, to any spontaneous trip!

I’m really looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year, and for me, I love spoiling the one person, I can’t seem to do without. So, if you’re the same, are feeling the love this year and are lucky enough to afford such lustful luxury, then do have a peak at the MARK / GIUSTI site, he even does bespoke, custom made designs, created specifically to your needs and desires too! How fabulous.

I really hope you enjoy your Valentines Day, whether you’re partying the night away with your friends, or are spending a night in or out with that special guy. After all, it isn’t every day we give pure dedicated attention towards the one’s we love! x

Black & Gold Luxe Outfit

This look is something that i’ve wanted to put together for a while now. I wanted to create something that showed off that sense of sophistication, an element of luxury and something that’s still bang on trend, using predominantly black with a hint of gorgeous burnt orange or gold.

I created a makeup look to compliment the look, using my recent Naked 3, Urban Decay palette. It’s such a beautiful palette, filled with rose golds, which have a pure warming undertone. I also wanted to use a contrasting and statement lipstick, so I chose to use this vibrant orange from the Makeup store (Carnaby Street).

The coat shown within my images, pulls the look together, and, for me, is my favourite item of the whole look! From River Island, this chic, faux fur, feathered, black and gold embellished piece, not only screams occasion, but it elicits something of a richer quality and design. I adore it! I paired it with a simple black shirt, from Topshop, and a similarly embellished black and gold skirt, also from Topshop (in their HQ sample sale). My belt, featured before within this blog post, is also from River Island.

To me, an outfit like this should be worn at a special occasion within the winter months. It’s not too formal, yet is still very elegant, classy and has an edge of high end fashion to it, despite all the items being from the hightstreet! It just proves how inexpensive an outfit can be, just with the right accompaniments and a striking lip!

If you’ve found any classic black and gold items recently and have posted about them on your blog, leave me a link…i’d love to see them! :)

Big loves, Holly x
