Space NK – Our Top Skincare Buys

It’s no secret that we are addicted to Space NK – it’s basically the (better!) London version of Sephora and has all our favourite beauty brands under one roof, which makes popping in and spending on our NDulge card far too easy to do! You’re paying for quality at Space NK and for skincare it’s often worth the investment to break away from those Simple Cleansing Wipes and give your skin an upgrade.

We’ve noticed ours needing some extra TLC from the mix of ice-cold wind and stuffy central heating so we’re taking a bit more time to look after it to improve the dullness and minimise those pores. Here’s our list of best products and tools to take you through our best Make Up Removers, through to Cleaners, Exfoliators, Moisturisers and Serums. Your fast track to get the glow…. (more…)

Hautelist: Christmas Gifts for Foodies

As we are officially one month away from Christmas, this week we will be making your present buying much easier! We’ve put together some tailored gift lists depending on whether your loved ones are real foodies, globetrotters or would just love something new to wear or use. Everything we have picked is basically what we would like to see for ourselves under the tree (we hope certain people are reading this!!!) so we have really scoured the web for you – if you like our taste in other things, then all you’ll need to do is click and buy and we hope your family and friends will like what you’ve chosen – let us know if they go down well!!

For today’s Christmas Hautelist, we’re focusing on the foodies… especially those who have been to every new restaurant in town and have kitted out their kitchens – there’s always a gadget they won’t have!

Rory Dobner – Homeware to Covet

We first came across Rory Dobner after seeing continuous photos of his intricately illustrated ceramic tiles on many of Instagram’s most fashionable photo streams. We fell in love with the alphabet tiles which are probably the most iconic from his range – and then everything else when we stumbled across the Rory Dobner corner on the third floor of Liberty among the other beautiful and whimsical homeware ranges.

My Haute List: Signe Johansen

If you haven’t heard of Signe you can thank your lucky stars we’re introducing you to her here. Signe is a writer, cook and consultant who grew up in Norway & now lives in London. Having trained at Leiths School of Food and Wine, Signe has worked in some of the UK’s top restaurants. She’s even got two seriously scrumptious books to her name Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking…Scandilicious and  Scandilicious Baking.

We love Signe’s authentic style and the warmth that radiates from her recipes. We dare you not to fall for her dreamy Nordic treats like the cinnamon bun cake or whimsical heart-shaped waffles. Fluffy French patisserie is all well and good but sometimes you need a heartwarming Scandi in your life. Or more specifically your kitchen. (more…)
