Luxury Holiday Gift Guide: Chanel, Jo Malone, Diptyque and Smith & Cult

I personally do not think about the holidays yet but since the brands already released all their awesome seasonal collections, it seems like a good time to write about the best of the best. I will run my traditional “Holiday Gift Guide”  features starting today, so look out for those.

Each post will feature hand picked products which I personally think would make an amazing gift. And  I hope you enjoy reading these, as much, as I love picking the products from all the variety we have today.

Today’s edition is all about the luxury products. All four kits look absolutely divine, and although I already have everything I need and more, I would not say no to any of these myself!

When Art & Beauty Meet: MAC and NARS Collections

There is nothing I love more than a beauty collection which was inspired, or even better, a collaboration, with an artist/photographer/someone from the world of culture. So I was obviously excited to see these new collections from MAC x Helmut Newton and NARS x Sarah Moon.
