I’m brightening up this grey, cloudy day with some colour!
Starting with some Mavala 193 Copper Gold on my fingers….

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour, 549, ‘Distraction’

Getting ready for the move to Singapore has meant one thing, preparing my summer wardrobe – this has been especially fun during the previous snowy days!
This has also meant summer colours and I’ve been brightening up my nails with the colour that everyone was wearing last summer, Chanel’s ‘Distraction’ nail varnish.
A mix or pinky rose and coral with a tint of light orange, it’s bright but not garish.I’m excited for Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2013 makeup, any ideas what nail colour they will be launching this summer?

Geek Chic by The Cambridge Satchel Company

The Cambridge Satchel Company - 01The star of the latest Google Chrome advert, the old school satchel is THE bag to have this winter thanks to The Cambridge Satchel Company’s unique and exclusive collections.

And this family-run business have done it BIG.
With celebrity fans including Alexa Chung, Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel (<3), their collection ranges from the classic brown satchel style to the ultra-modern, and hugely popular, fluorescent colours (my personal favourites).
The Cambridge Satchel Company blog - 03I decided to play it cool this time though, so I went  for the smart 13″ black satchel with my initials embossed in gold.

I have to admit that when my ever-faithful Longchamp packed in a few weeks ago I was a bit lost about what bag to add next to my collection alongside my beloved Hermés Birkin. Every time the Google advert came on television, I was left wanting one of these exclusive satchels more and more.  I was eventually won over and I gave in – I’m sure I’m not the only one.
It’s never going to be a show-stopper like the Birkin but it’s great for every occasion and one or the most versatile bags ever – casual enough to wear every day, yet smart enough for business meetings or after work drinks.  It’s also the perfect size for fitting in all your daily essentials without being too bulky.
The Cambridge Satchel Company blog - 04I’m saving up now to take the plunge and get myself either a fluroescent yellow or pink satchel (are you paying attention, Mum?!).
Until then, I’m sure I’m going to have lots of fun around Singapore with this little classic, that I hope I will be bringing out for years to come.
