B Public Relations Press Day

Pampering, fantastic brands and cupcakes at the B Public Relations Press Day hosted at the glamorous Swarovski Lounge in Great Marlborough Street. I love this venue, it is perfect for displaying in a proper way clothing, accessorises and make up without compromising with walking space and a corner where sofas are provided for relax and a chat over a drink and something yummy. This is what happened during B Public Relations Press Day, everything looked and it was perfect from the reception, to being talked through the collections and a bit of a talk after that.  The brands on display were many and very interesting.

Penhaligon’s is a favourite brand of mine, I love its shops, all with that distinctive old fashioned look and the products are absolutely among the best. I often pop in one of them and I can’t leave its premises if I don’t make a purchase, it is just compulsory for me. This Spring Summer the new fragrance from the English perfume house is called Peoneve, a bouquet of violet leaves, peony, Bulgarian rose, Hedione, Vetiver, Musk and Cashmere woods. In its simplicity the bottle is a small masterpiece, never changed in nearly 250 years of trading. Perfumer Olivier Cresp, who created this fragrance is a master in his art, having created among other famous perfumes, “Angel” by Thierry Mugler in 1992. Peoneve is going to be a must have. www.penhaligons.com 

Truffle Shuffle is a British online store for vintage style t-shirts. atwww.truffleshuffle.com you can find any t-shirt with logos, old cartoon characters, rock bands, the list is endless. The trend of wearing retro t-shirts come from United States but  in UK there wasn’t a company selling these garments, everything had to be imported or bought second hand. Pat and Claire Wood founded the company in 2004 and since then the catalogue has been massive. As well as t-shirts, sweat shirts and hoodies are available.

So You Shoes is an online shop where the next season look has been pinned and wedges, stilettos, ankle boots and more are available in several colours at a very accessible price. Let’s say that the looks that you’ve seen on the catwalk can be found at www.soyoushoes.co.uk  and with the price of a pair of designer shoes you can afford to buy one for each style and in several colours being ahead of everyone else wearing the key look for Spring and Summer 2013.

Just Curvy is the website where curvaceous women can find lovely dresses, jeans, leggings, t-shirts and any other kind of garment up to size 26. It is frustrating when in a shop they stock only up to a certain size or for bigger sizes there is only one item. With www.justcurvy.com all this won’t happen anymore. The selection is great, the prices are very affordable and all the latest trends are on the catalogue. It really deserves a peek and I’m sure that when finishing to browse it you won’t leave empty handed.

Ciate’ is a nail varnish brand always coming up with something new with its products. From February exclusively at Selfridges the new collection of glittering nail varnish will be available. Look for the Fairytale Collection with its new 5 shades. The great thing about these products is that they are free from Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. Your nails will thank you as well as being sparkling and groomed for longer. Priced at only £ 9.00 for each pot it is a treat that won’t let you feel guilty.www.ciate.co.uk

Lingerie is having a great moment right now. Fiction with its latest steamy releases has increased a lot the purchase of nice lingerie and else. Topping up with the fact that recession makes people stay at home more rather than going out, investing in a lingerie set would be more fun as well as being of practical use.www.bluebella.com stocks nice underwear, some of them are a bit kinky but always very tasteful, in catalogue you can find some items like hot water bottle warmers, t-shirts, eye masks and more for a nice present. The prices are very affordable, with a great choice of models and colours.
