IN DETAIL: AN INTERVIEW WITH SASKIA DIEZ




Jewellery holds a very special place in my heart, and I’m sure in many of yours too. When I came across Saskia Diez’s work I was smitten. The Berlin-based beauty only started her eponymous label in 2007 and has already gained an impressive cult following, with good reason! In such a short amount of time, Saskia has brought out an incredible range of stunning pieces ranging from earcuffs to her signature sling rings as well as releasing two perfumes, GOLD and SILVER.

The divine Saskia chatted to me about her work, life and her loves.

DARIA X BALENCIAGA SS14




Alexander Wang sure is doing the house of Balenciaga proud, recruiting none other than the flawless Daria Werbowy herself to front the Spring/Summer 14 campaign. And the results are sheer perfection.

I admit I had my doubts in the beginning about Wang’s ability to continue on from Ghesquière (who I believe to be one of the most influential creatives of our time), I've found myself falling hard for his designs for the label and am left amazed by his overall creative direction time and time again.

These shots just encapsulate everything that Balenciaga is about: luxe, empowering and a whole lotta sexy. Also Daria is completely killing it, channeling Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct complete with dark lips - girl is on fire!

Have a beautiful weekend, lovers!

BEAUTY SPOT: SUNDAY RILEY GOOD GENES





I’ll be the first to admit it, I’m a skincare junkie. I take up both sides of the sink in my shared bathroom and I keep my excess products in the cabinet underneath. I see treating your skin with respect and care as a long-term investment and I am on a neverending mission to find the crème de la crème that will give me the clearest, glowing skin.

I have been using the Sunday Riley Good Genes serum for about a month now and it has completely blown me away. I mean, sure I'd heard amazing reviews from the likes of Emily from Into The Gloss and all but I just didn't expect it to be this good. It smells so gorgeous and citrusy, feels super luxe to use and leaves you looking alive and fresh. Lactic acid helps exfoliate the skin while licorice extract boosts brightening. It has already made such a difference in my skin and I know that with further use it’ll not only improve but also slow down the skin ageing process.

Next on my hit list is the Ceramic Slip Cleanser. Now to use up all the ones that I have lying around first…

ONE, TWO, DREE




She calls herself a walking cliché: a model/actress. Carries herself with poise, emulating the kind of carefree confidence that cannot be taught. Hair spun like gold, a gaze you cannot escape. She laughs, her charm undeniable as her eyes glisten, alit with wonder. She is the ultimate muse, style embedded in her bones and a refreshing sense of worldliness beyond her twenty six years. A living, breathing, all-American dream.

BEAUTY SPOT: RMS BEAUTY LIVING LUMINIZER





If there's one beauty product I can never have too many of, it's highlighters. It might be down to my love of pretty, shiny things but I think they are a staple in any girl's beauty arsenal, acting as the perfect pick-me-up. Out of all the ones I own, I usually find myself reaching for my beloved RMS Living LuminizerIt's definitely the most unique in my collection, with a lovely wet, cream-like formula that makes it a dream to apply with fingers. It doesn't add any colour, more like a subtle sheen, leaving behind the most beautiful, dewy glow. It's pretty much magic in a pot! And the fact that all Rose-Marie's products are 100% natural is just a little bonus.

Let me know what beauty products you can't live without, your favourite highlighters or if you've tried anything from RMS Beauty!
