Instead of prepping for Notting Hill Carnival, we have spent all morning drooling over these satchels from The Cambridge Satchel Company. They come in a rainbow of colours and different sizes so can be used as a regular satchel or as a preppie handbag. You can even get your name embossed on them - very Malory Towers...

We are off to Paris in a couple of weeks so forgive us for coming over a bit oh la la... For starters we are totally swooning over this APC T-shirt - The Teenagers, APC, Paris...Could there be a more perfect combination?

What is it about lip balms that is just so irresistible? We have shelves-ful of Carmex, Kiehls, Blistex and Burts Bees. Gloopy, creamy or even the humble Chapstick, you name it, we can't resist smothering our lips in it. Latest on the lip balm conveyor belt is Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream in this glamorous wee pot. At only £10 we think this is a bargain, therefore, or course we have to have it.

Coats in August- are we mad? No, very sensible actually. We weren't looking for coats in River Island, but before we knew it, something was sucking us in and making us try them on. We fell in love with this one - fabulously fifties shape, detachable furry collar and what we're calling 'glove-length' sleeves - stopping just above the wristbone to show off a snazzy pair of gloves, perhaps with buttons up the side? Oh, and please don't miss the Cecil Beaton wallpaper in the fitting room - how very couture salon!

Oh how we love the ripped-neon-tights-over-black-opaques look that we saw on a trendsetter in Selfridges yesterday. Wear with a sixties mini-shift, trashed Converse and a studded hairband for full London-girl effect...

We can't help it, we just can't resist cute stuff. Cartoon graphics, kooky stationery, novelty make-up, we love it all. At the A/W Tammy press day we were all over the accessories, in particular, the mirror keyrings in the shape of old-school cameras and sunglasses with mini-lipglosses attached. And how disco-licious is the pink metallic make-up bag? Bring it on!

Our love of neon, graffiti and 80s graphics just isn't going away is it? And do we care? Not a lot, no! Neither does Diesel, who has a new collection getting ready for lift-off in September. The Flash for Fun collection is a capsule range of glow-in-the-dark clothes that look oh-so-innocent by day, then undergo a Stephen Sprouse-esque transformation come night. Neon-tastic!

More on the Disney tip, we just love how Stella McCartney always thinks outside the box in such a cool way. Who else would have come up with a high fashion ad campaign featuring some well-loved Disney characters without it looking naff? Adorable.
