Petit Prada

Ah, how we adore a miniature beauty product. So useful, so cute, so fun! And this Prada handbag-sized bottle of its L'eau Ambree fragrance is crying out for an invitation into our Louis Vuitton bumbag (we wish). Perfect for the summer 'glamping' season, it even has a natty keyring to attach to belt loops while on the go.

Everyone's wearing...

...The summer red lip. Beyonce and Lily Allen look ravishing in bright true reds. Alexa's is a shade too dark, we'd like to see her in something more tomato-toned...

Make me a fashion editor

Every girl we know who has seen The Hills wants to work in fashion. We went to the launch of the Teen Vogue Handbook last week and we have to say, if you crave a career in fashion, you need this book. It's like a bumper edition of Teen Vogue but the focus is on making it in the fashion industry. Being a Vogue publication, there are tips and interviews from the biggest names in fashion. Talk about getting the best advice in the business!

To add our tuppence-worth, check out this old post on getting the best out of your work experience interview and this interview Navaz did with Stevie from Discotheque Confusion...

Topshop makeup gets interactive

Oh we do love a bit of fashion interactivity! As if playing with Topshop's new make-up range wasn't enough fun (we recommend the lip polishes), we're being treated to its online makeover tool. You can either upload your own photo and try out the make-up on your own face, or get creative with the official campaign shots.

As if that's not impressive enough, Topshop has also made its own make-up tutorials which you can watch on Youtube. We are mostly going to spend this week replaying the Statement Lip video. 'Scuse us while we pucker up...

Festival Face

It's May! And that means festival season is mere weeks away. *Cue unearthing of wellies and rain poncho from depths of wardrobe.* Make-up brands are getting in on the action good and proper with their cheap and chic face paints. Top Shop's range is imminent but for now, we're impressed with this W7 Neon Eyes 5-colour eyeshadow set. That's a lot of crazy colour options for £3.49. Go create!
