Lulu's lashes

The unstoppable Lulu Guinness' new AW10 collection is just as pretty and witty as ever. Our favourite pieces are the bags inspired by 60s model Peggy Moffitt...

We also like that our beloved cat bags have been updated with Peggy lashes...

Oh and check out these adorable purses and key rings... we need more cute stuff in our lives!

Hey doll...

Excitement! We were very taken with these brand new Roca Wear Barbie dolls that we spied at the Mandi Lennard press day. Even more impressive was to see a black doll with - gasp! - curly hair!

More on the plastic fantastic front... these supersonic winged Melissa shoes. These are in store now. We want some badly...

Oasis does a Willy Wonka

Fashion, chocolate and freebies, are three of our favourite things and Oasis have cleverly wrapped up the three in their easter egg-stravaganza. If you live in Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff or Dublin, you can partake in some Willy Wonka-style fun over easter weekend. Just keep your eyes peeled for Oasis staff handing out these eyecatching choccy bars (*cough*, guess who helped design the packaging?) and see what prizes their wrappers contain. It could be anything from a 10% off voucher to a £500 shopping spree.

And if you're not in any of those cities, play the Oasis Facebook game from 30th March to win your prizes instead. If we won the £500 spree, this polka dot cardi would be top of our list...

Falling in love

We have been waiting for these to drop ever since seeing them at the Topshop press day last October. These heart print jeans are just one of a huge load of heart print tops, shorts and dresses filtering through as of right now.

To sum up, we *heart* them!

Jeans, £45; shorts, £30; top, £16

All Aliced Out? Not Quite...

Has there ever been a bigger merchandiser's dream than Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland? We think not. But Alice fatigue hasn't quite kicked in for us yet. We're lusting after Paul & Joe's whimsical Alice beauty merch spotted at

This £25 handbag kit contains blotting paper and a lip treatment stick in the cutest little tin. Sweet and chic...

Free gift alert...

We're not often impressed by GWP's (that's shop jargon for Gift With Purchase), but this Michael Kors weekender bag is hard to beat. It's available throughout March - free when you buy a 50ml bottle of Michael Kors fragrance. Practically a bargain!

Cool as Coco

*Sigh*... How gorgeous is Vanessa Paradis in this behind-the-scenes clip of the Chanel Rouge Coco ad?

The hair, the face, the lips. Beautiful. And the song is now stuck on repeat in our heads. "What a day for a daydream..."

Chanel's new "IT" polish for autumn/winter '10...

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Sophy Robson is fashion's manicurist de jour, who at the moment is working hard at all the hottest a/w shows. Lucky for us though, she's made time between mani's to keep us updated on all the 'it' new polish shades we'll want to be wearing for autumn. This piccie comes hot-off-the-press from Chanel's a/w show this morning. Jade Rose is actually quite summery for autumn but subtle yet pretty nails will work well with the OTT accessories that are going to be so hot for next season. We like!

Pastel brows

We couldn't help thinking of Tim Walker's iconic dyed-fur cats picture when we saw Balenciaga's pastel-hued brows.

The question is, would you wear powder-blue eyebrows?

My tattoo? It's Chanel dahling!

Must say, we've never had the urge to ink our skin, but when we heard that Chanel were launching a couture 'tattoo service' at Selfridges this month, our minds soon changed! Customers can choose from 55 tattoos - in the floral, bead and of course, bangle varieties. And this being Chanel, they've not just set up 'shop' at a regular beauty counter, but they've recreated the barn scene made famous at their spring/summer catwalk show....

We've booked to be 'inked' next week...exciting, so look out for a piccie then!

Les Trompe L'Oeil de Chanel - The set of 55 individual Chanel Tattoos - will be available exclusively from Selfridges, London from 1st March, 2010

Price: £49

Dial G for Gaga

Our friend, accessory-designer-and-all-round-arty-genius Fred Butler has just designed Lady Gaga's headpiece for the Telephone vid.
Bonkers or what? We're impressed though... it could so easily have turned out like this:

Disturbing new beauty trend: Teentoxing

SCREAM! We did when we read this article about a mum giving her 16 year old daughter botox!?! Gross. Teenagers should be taught to celebrate their individuality, not disguise it or change it by injecting poisons under their skin. So what if you're got a few lines on your forehead? So what if you've got a bigger-than-average nose or a few freckles on your cheeks? Surely it's better to stand out from the GHD'd, Fake-Baked crowd than just fade into the sea of plastic-looking people? Grrr!
