London Style News: Fragrance Obssesion

London Style News: Fragrance Obssesion

This week I am obsessed about fragrances and it is only fair that I let you all in to my gorgeously smelly world. You know the deal with scents, right? Its amazing how different smells can remind you of places, people and moments in your past. Right? Every time I smell apple tea it takes me back 20 years, I am sitting on a boat somewhere near Turkey and my grandparents are drinking apple tea. Aveda’s purple shampoo takes me back to having white blonde hair when I was in my 20’s. The newest addition to my “smell memory” is Hermes Terre d’Hermes which is worn on occasions by the man in my life. It floors me every time, takes me back into his arms. Really is no wonder that I spray it on my tanktop when I go to sleep when he is away for business.

Really is no wonder that I spray it on my tank top when I go to sleep when he is away for business. He does not know this, so be quiet! This week I have picked my three favourite scents (at the moment at least, flaky as ever).

Aveda, Chakra 1
The first one isn’t really a fragrance, but I thought I should introduce you all to Aveda’s Chakra Series. As we all know, there are seven chakras in the body all of which play a significant part in the way we feel and are. I don’t understand any of this as not that spiritual. However, the least I can do is to feel a little balanced at times. I have tried most of the products and so far my favourite remains the Chakra 1. “Chakra 1 is the centre where we ground ourselves and take care of our basic needs. When the root chakra is balanced, one has good energy, a feeling of security and a healthy body awareness”. This body spray smells amaze and I have to admit, it does work. I use it when feeling especially over worked and spinning like no tomorrow. It calms me down. Sorted.

Jo Malone, Vetyver
Its spring time in London, FINALLY. After a very grey and wet winter we have been having sunshine and warmth for the last week. So, it was about time I switched away from my winter scent to more spring appropriate one. I couldn’t go all the way to my summer version yet, so Vetyver by Jo Malone is perfect. It smells divine. Its built around bergamot, nutmeg and cedarwood. Three of my favorites notes when it comes to fragrances. Really no wonder I like this one so much. On a days I feel particularly adventurous, I spray on this with little Grapefruit from Jo Malone as well. Mix and match. That’s how you create your own perfect scent.

Diptyque, Philosykos
As you may have gathered I do switch scents as the season go by. However, there is one fragrances that remains on my top spot, be it rainy in the fall, sunny in the spring or freezing cold in the winter. Diptyque, Philosykos has become my signature scent without a doubt. If I could only wear one scent for the rest of my life, this would be it. It’s like sunshine on my skin on a Greek island. I should really not be telling you all this as I truly enjoy smelling unique. Not often does someone walk past and I smell figs. Its special, its mine and I love it.

London Style News: The Shoe Update

London Style News: The Shoe Update

This Monday I have woken up to a glorious sunshine, which always puts me on a good mood, like any other sun starved gay in the world. It is not only the weather that is making me happy, I have new things I am obsessed with and only fair that I share the news with my lovely people in NYC. It’s now April and things are looking up as far as this year is coming along. I have been hitting the gym like a maniac, ready for shorts, tank top and flip flops! Can’t wait for the weather to get a little warmer yet. Whoop! However, there are few things that I wanted to get you guys to pay attention to and here we go…

The Hurly Burly Show
Last night I witnessed the start of a burlesque revolution in the form of The Hurly Burly Show. The show is all about the fabulous Miss Polly Rae and her very talented team of Hurly Burly Girlies. I have kind of “gone off” burlesque as there are SO many so called stars doing their version and it never really impresses me. This all changed last night and I was literally blown away (ahem). Now, I know you are thinking that I am being particularly mean, telling you about a show that you can’t see in your side of the bond. However, I am planning a one man campaign to get this show on the road all over world. I am being dead serious. This show is all singing all dancing experience, with nipple tassels, g-strings, 6 inch heels and flame throwing. These girls are spicing up London’s West End and I would strongly advise you all to keep an eye on them. This show is going to be HUGE. For more details, click to www.hurlyburlyuk.com

My Swatch Watch
Now, you all know I like rubbery things, especially when it comes to watches. We shall leave the other accessories without a mention. The beauty with these watches is that they come in every imaginable colour. You can easily mix and match them to the rest of your wardrobe. I mean seriously, how much fun. I currently LOVE my grey one. Planning to get a few more. Surprisingly enough, today my watch matches my underwear. I rule. End of. You can of course get your own from www.swatch.com

My Converse Trainers
Seriously. The grey theme continues. I adore these trainers. I in fact have these in two colours. The ones in grey as pictured and the other are in black and red. Totally obsessed. The thing with converse are that you can actually wear them with anything, minus Speedo of course. I work mine with mu black suit, just to bring it down to casual if needed. I wear them with jeans, shorts and so forth. You can go wrong with converse. This is an age old story, but I am here to tell you that they are still going strong. Get yours from www.converse.com

So, this week, I am obsessed with nipple tassels, glitter, g-strings and apparently everything to do with the colour grey. What are you obsessed about?
