Fashion meets Fairtrade

We're a bit disappointed that Alexa Chung has jumped on the celebrity-slash-designer bandwagon but it's in aid of a good cause so we'll let her off. These £38 (!) skull earrings for Fairtrade brand Made Boutique are on sale from February 25th.

The funnest boots ever

Forget the fact that there's as much chance of snow as there is of us sticking to our new year's resolutions, aren't these just the best boots*? Warm and beautiful, we'll have one in every colour please.

Can't get through January without it...

Ever since The Body Shop started hiking the price of its iconic Body Butter at a faster rate than our monthly Oyster cards, we've been looking for a suitable alternative. It finally arrived two weeks ago in the guise of J.R. Watkins Apothecary Vanilla Dry Oil Body Mist. Admittedly, it doesn't have the luxurious rich texture of a body butter but it does the same job. This dry oil sprays onto legs and arms and rubs in super-quickly without leaving any residue on our hands. If a spray's not your bag then consider the Lemon Cream Shea Butter. It's a fabulous rich hand, foot or body butter than smells of lemon meringue pie and also passes the rubs-in-fast test and kept our cuticles flake-free (and believe us, we've tried everything). The best bit? The products cost a shade over £5 and aren't tested on animals. Yay!
Find them in your local pharmacy or call 02380 460600 for stockists.
