Check out the new Rika online boutique. I for one have been patiently awaiting the launch and I am happy to report it is now finally up and running! We can now purchase the buttery soft star embossed handbags and the “Iron Girl Tee”. Alors, what are you waiting ?!
Last week I shuffled along to Cosmetics a la Carte in Knightsbridge (Ooh très chic, je sais) to have a custom blend whipped up. For those of us not in “the know”, a custom blend is a made to measure service whereby one can have concealer, foundation, and lipstick tailor made to suit one’s complexion.
Cosmetics a la Carte is a unique make-up brand. In 1973 they pioneered the ‘bespoke beauty’ experience whilst also offering an extensive ready-to-wear range.
What I found most enjoyable about the experience was the patient assistance provided by my expert make up artist. As we made our way through the range of colour options at no point did I feel I was taking too much time. I elected to go with the “Skin Tint” range – a “build-able anti-ageing foundation with plumping peptides for a dewy youthful glow”. As you know, I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to make-up so was happy to be tutored in how and where to apply my base to achieve a different finish. The best part is, once you have your custom blend you can re-order online!
If you (comme moi) are worried about harmful chemicals in your skincare, you will be happy to learn the A la Carte range uses only natural, mineral and botanical technology for Silicon and preservative free long lasting make-up. Que pouvait une fille demander de plus? Bisous x
So I wanted to share with you the genius that is Moynat, “objects for travel”. Moynat has been charming the traveller since 1849. Their pieces are truly beautiful, just look at the “Ballerine” and that cycle basket. These are pieces you will keep for a life-time and pass onto the next generation. I would suggest, investing in a holdall or the smaller “Limousine Case” or go even smaller with the Organiser, trust me you cannot go wrong. x
I am very upset, very upset indeed! I am just a little obsessed now with finding the perfect winter hat that is to say before winter passes by altogether. This is becoming a “huge issue”. Huge in the sense that I seem to possess something of a particularly large head. Piff, comment est-ce possible que je vous entends pleurer? I was certain I had dealt with this bothersome matter when I purchased a vintage Kenzo fedora online in a large size. However, it would seem my conspicuous cranium has reared it’s size challenged head yet again…what is a girl to do? Buy men’s hats it would seem…
