Diggin’ Dungarees

All those that keep a keen eye on fashion trends you will be already up to speed on the ‘Dungaree movement’ in the fashion world.

I’ve have accumulated two pairs so far one in a dark navy cord purchased from Anthropolgie ( bargain sale purchase) and the other curtesy of ‘H’ (husband) a fabulous Levi pair although new the denim experts have got the wash just perfect, worn and battered.

The thing is I can understand some peoples reservations and the whole ‘hillbilly’ connotations but styled with conviction these all time classics can truly give you a whole new outfit to feel good in.

They can also work for the whole family, OK maybe mum and child may have the upper hand on this one. Dad’s can unfortunately  end up looking like a rather famous trailer park serial killer. Probably not advisable for daddy’s weekend look.

Some kids have all the luck

Parentalstyle is all in favour of those creative and stylish parents that can bring their grown up practical design ethos and translate it into super cool style for their kids bedrooms.

Currently looking at inspiration for Squeak’s bedroom, all though not quite sure she is going to be as lucky as some of the kids in these research images. I love clean and clever design that means there is a carefully thought out plan that allows everything to have it’s place and ideally for me can be put away quickly and leave a room looking considered as opposed to a bomb site, which in a child’s room is tricky.

Here are some design minded parents that seem to have it down.

March sees the launch of Juicy Couture’s new fragrance range, Juicy Couture Malibu, featuring two new, brighter interpretations of the Juicy Couture and Couture La La fragrances.

Juicy Couture Malibu combines top notes of pink passion fruit, watermelon and green apple with mid notes of wild rose and jasmine on a musky wood base. Couture La La Malibu fuses mandarin and red currant notes with wet flower petals, mid notes of white peony and a base of white musk and sweet pink sugar.

The scents are packaged in bottles bearing oversized pink and orange lucite heart charms and decorated with palm trees. Available in Eau de Toilette (£63 for 150ml; £47 for 75ml), EDT Rollerball Duo (£9.99) as well as an Eau de Toilette (£34 for 40ml) exclusive to Boots. The collection will be available at Boots (40ml only), Selfridges, Debenhams, The Perfume Shop and The Fragrance Shop.

Diptyque launches new skincare range for face

Image

Personally I’m a fan of Diptyque scents so to hear that they announced the launch of its new skincare range for the face, available in March, I was naturally very curios.

The L’Art Du Soin collection features five products that transform on contact with water or with the skin. The primary ingredient is damask rose matched with jasmine, white lily, clay, rice powder and petals or with essential floral wax.

The Infused Facial Water (£35) features vitamins, minerals and moisturising agents to cleanse, tone, moisturise and restore the skin. The Radiance Boosting Powder (£38) transforms into a foam to cleanse and revive dull complexions. The Nourishing Cleansing Balm (£44) transforms into a fine oil and then into a milky emulsion on contact with water. The Multi-Use Exfoliating Clay (£44) detoxifies the skin and is enriched with marble powder to exfoliate. The last of the products, the Protective Moisturizing Lotion (£44), boasts an SPF 15 sun protection and contains orange blossom as a powerful moisturiser.

I will be happy to try any of the above.
