The Best Winter Coats to Buy Now

We’re having a bit of an Indian summer – thank you global warming – but while you may  not feel like buying your winter coat now, you really should. That’s because the way fashion retail works is so archaic and the main winter drops happen in August and September, still. So buy now and be thankful in a few weeks time. Here are my picks of the best coats and jackets on the high street.  DREAMY DENIM The blue stuff never goes out of fashion, swap your summer jacket for a longer style.

So here are three very pocket-friendly purchases for the new season… P.S.

What’s Hot? June Edition

Each month I share with you all that I declare to be sizzling, caliente, calor or just plain hot. In an ideal world it would merely consist of a list of the fittest Tinder profiles I’d seen that month but that would be weird and might render me single foreverrr. So enjoy some fashion, beauty, culture and all in-between.  LOLA JAMES HARPER CANDLES As a true candle addict (there is even an incident in my house known as ‘candlegate’ that I can’t go into right now) I make it my business to sniff out the hottest new votives on the block and as of now the honour of most coveted candle goes to Lola James Harper‘s sepia-toned glass jars. Founded by Rami Mekdachi in Paris, as far as I can make out LJH is a lifestyle brand that encompasses photography, music, fragrance and furniture (phew) all imbued with a signature bohemian flavour. Each candle is inspired by a particular happy memory and has a name to commemorate the place it was created such as; The Comics Store …
