Rocking Red with Rococo

This week I visited the Space N.K press day to satisfy all my beauty needs and satisfied I was. As well as testing many a beauty product, I walked away with a rocking manicure courtesy of Rococo from their new Rock&Royal range.
Labelled as ‘Monarchy meets Anarchy’, the new set combines three of Rococo’s signature shades to create the perfect nail kit for the pending Jubilee weekend and a patriotic summer. Shades include Lab Nude 1.0, V.I.P and City Slick and the set is priced at £24 available from Space N.K online and in store.

Aspinal of London Appoints Mollie King as Ambassador

Mollie King is the next stylish celeb to put her fashion foot forward and have a namesake ‘it bag’ to her credentials. Luxury brand Aspinal of London has appointed Mollie as their new Ambassador, creating a must have piece for the modern and preppy girl about town.

Stylish and perfectly proportioned, the namesake ‘Mollie Satchel’ comes in three colours and is handmade from the finest Italian calf leather. Designed to epitomise the quintessentially British style of Aspinal of London, Mollie has already been seen toting the bag (below), fulfilling her 'royal duties' to the brand.
I have to agree the new ‘must have’ satchel is perfect for the modern day ‘Carrie’ providing all the space she could need, even for her laptop!

The Mollie Satchel is £450 and is available from Aspinal of London online and in selected stores around the UK.

Summer Ready Hair from Oribe

 
This month I was introduced to a new hair care range from Oribe, also new to Space N.K. Being an Oribe virgin I was super keen to put the new range to the test especially the Après Beach Spray. Filled with excitement I popped along to the Space N.K store on Broadwick Street in London for a demonstration and product launch.
At the launch we were shown how to create the perfect curls using hair grips and the Oribe Crème for Style product and also how to create amazing volume using the Dry Texturizing Spray. Literally the best demonstration I have ever seen.  The first demo was a girl who had naturally straight hair. Strands of her hair were sectioned, smothered with the hair cream, curled using the hairdressers finger and fastened to her head with a grip. Left for 30 minutes and blow dried the stylist then revealed the bounciest curls fit for the catwalk.
The second demo was a little impromptu, a fellow blogger jumped at the chance to have her hair volumized using the Dry Texturizing Spray. The stylist parted her hair into sections starting above her ear and through and beyond her parting, spraying the root to create incredible volume. The best things about this: her hair was still soft, even with the product in and smelt incredible.
Keen to try both products along with the Oribe Après Beach Spray I welcomed the goodie bag and went straight home to begin testing. Using the Oribe Crème for Style I recreated the curly do and was delighted to see what I looked like with natural looking curls. Following the simple instructions from the demonstration and with the help of my flatmate it was as easy as described. For a different look, I used the crème by sliding it through the ends of my hair and scrunching it to create a natural wave which also worked a treat.

The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray has to be my favourite of the range as I crave volume and find this very quick and easy to use. You can section hair any way you choose, follow with a quick blast of the spray and boom you’ve got volume.
Last but by no means least; the Oribe Après Beach Spray has found itself a pride place in my summer beauty collection. I was lucky enough to enjoy a quick break in Devon at the same time in March that we had an amazing few days of hot weather. I seized the opportunity to use the spray and sunbathe (obviously). Sun and sea friendly, it gave me some fantastic waves. I thoroughly recommend the brand and now have a collection of stylish hair tools for a beautiful hot, summer (a girl can dream).
The Oribe collection is available in Space N.K stores and online. Product prices through the range vary between £18 and £54.
