Win (another) £50 with Ask Her Friends!

Ask her Friends Blogger Panel


I’m back with my September picks for the askherfriends.com bloggers panel.  The site takes the headache out of finding gifts for women, with the bloggers' picks serving as one source of gift-finding inspiration. You can also create an ideas map, ask for advice from a panel of advisers and compile an advice list to send out to her friends.

The September theme was back to school, so you can check out my picks below. Don’t forget to head over to vote for your favourite selection – you could win a win a £50 voucher to spend on the site.

ONE: Percy Pug Notebook by Rose Hill Designs;  I blame Andrea Faustini, the cute, pug-loving Italian from X-Factor, for this one!

TWO:  Givenchy Easy Bright Blue Leather Bag by The Collection; if only my school bags had been this fabulous. That fake Puma backpack (Pomo, FML) stalks my nightmares still.

THREE:  Little Leo Cotton Scarf by Ella Georgia; the perfect thing to wrap up warm – and everyone needs a little leopard in their lives.

FOUR:   Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Look Gift Box by The Collection; this makeup line is my latest obsession – this week’s Frillseeker column is proof!

FIVE:  Deep Sleep Bath Oil by This Works;  the pillow spray from This Works is the bomb, so I’ve high hopes for this bath oil being the most relaxing product EVER.

Like the look of any of this little lot?

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate: Is Pre-Serum A Step Too Far?

Shiseido Ultimune


Shiseido's Ultimune is one of their biggest skincare launches of recent times. Developed after 20 years of research on the skin’s immunity, Ultimune is intended to promote healthier skin, strengthening its defences against environmental factors and stress. You use it morning and evening,  before your serum and other products.

A pre-serum! I imagine Rosemary rolling her eyes, given we near came to blows over serums – and I know it might seem like an unnecessary step.  But it’s working for me.

Warehouse AW14 Fashion Collection: Top Picks

Warehouse AW14 fashion

I could do some serious damage in Warehouse this season. I’ve always liked the brand, but over the past couple of years, its collections have really stood out from the rest of the high-street herd. 

Warehouse AW14 fashion
Right: Top €52; Skirt €60


Streamlined tailoring, quality fabrics and clever use of structure and texture mean its aesthetic is more similarly aligned to Cos or Whistles than, say, Topshop or New Look. You’ll still find the latest trends, but are more likely to pick up stylish staples that will work for several seasons to come.
