How about dusky pink? It might not be your favourite colour but certainly fashion is having an affection with it. Pink isn’t just about being “pretty” anymore…
I had a chance to talk to Slendertone‘s Marketing Manager Charlotte Cordell about their new product called Slendertone Face. It aims at keeping the facial muscles healthy, increasing circulation ad progressively reducing the signs of ageing, restoring youthful shape of your face. I am certainly up for trying!
Another intriguing brand I met was Pure Gold Collagen. I have heard of them in the past but never actually used the product so as I was chatting to Natasha Anne Kelleher and Tania Verrillo from MINERVA Research Labs that developed the product, it was a perfect opportunity to find out what the collagen drink tastes like! And it is very good, indeed!
I loved Colour Chase Cosmetics – “Make up for the dreamers”. They offer the most amazing array of quality bright coloured lipsticks and eye makeup. I can’t want to try them out!
Moving onto the fashion and jewellery scene – I must mention Matthew Calvin – London based contemporary jewellery designer.
I particularly liked Screw Top Studs, Lightweight Rings in rose gold and wide point ring in silver. Matthew Calvin is all about clean lines with modern edge, fine materials and underlying femininity. I can imagine his designs would go well with one of my favourite fashion designers – Alexander Wang. I can certainly see some common denominators…
Another brand I liked was Zuzka Natural Beauty – 100% natural cosmetics, free from harsh detergents and synthetic ingredients that could be tolerated by sensitive skin. Zuzka, which means Susan in Slovakian, offers a range of products made only from certified organic herbs, plants & flowers so perfect for allergy prone and troubled skin!
I also had a chance to chat with a brand that has been on the market for the last 15 years – Hiffas Da Terra that offers organic products made of mushrooms! As unorthodox as it initially sounds, I have tried their organic soaps and they are wonderful! I am yet to try out the anti-ageing serum!
This biotechnology company is committed to their green philosophy and created of the first gourmet mycological product range, combining sustainability, ecology and profitability. Definitely worth checking out!
Ndulge is a brand that offers scented and unscented handmade, organic skincare products including soaps, bath and skin care products to suit any mood, all beautifully packaged. My favourite was the heart shaped Christmas scented hand cream.

Closing off, here is a final piece of my leather edit – these lovely See by Chloe leather pants featuring a scalloped hem and high waist are an absolute winner. The deep red colour sets them apart from the typical black leather pants. The high waist works well when you have an hourglass shape.
Again, I had them taken in as they were a tad too long.
See by Chloe is known for the scalloped hem and I have decided to team it up with Marni brushed silk tank top that also has a scalloped trim.
This look is surprisingly fresh, can be cool and casual with summer sandals. I opted for a pair of L.K. Bennett Cerise Shilo patent leather pumps. With their impeccable design, perfect finish, and perfectly proportioned stiletto heel, these fab Shilo high heels combine all the essential qualities of the high heel, the quintessence of femininity.
