'Tis nearly the end of year, that excruciating time when we do the sums of our achievements during the year and set the (unrealistic) objectives for the new one. Not so many years ago TE set itself exactly one of these preposterous tasks, something absurd which was a combination of losing weight/ shop like there's no tomorrow AND find a boyfriend.

Honestly, you can see where that was going...!

This year, TE feels it has achieved most of the cherished goals (minus the weight-loss thing...damn you chocolate!). TE feels happy and, yes, one might even say fearless! Not in the arrogant pompous way but more in a self-secure and calming way. Life is good and it just keeps getting better - goes to show that a positive attitude can do miracles. Ok I am not going to get all self-help-bookey on you gals, we all know how uncool that is!

Having said that, however, I am dedicating my last blog entry of the year to something that is very fashionable: Comfort. (Yes, I did pick up on the pj trouser trend and No, I will most def not be adopting it).

My list of comfort items would have to include:
1) A soft and loose fitting boyfriend cachemire jumper, as available at JCrew:

2) My beloved Uggs, this year for my 3rd purchase it will be black:

3) Stretchy jeans, so much better than the ones you can barely squeeze into (and still have the cool factor), recently loving these from Comptoir des Cotonniers:

Ok so finally, as the ultimate comfort factor of the year TE would haste to recommend Shellac manicures - great colour, lasts for 3 weeks = hands permanently tidy!

My dears, have a great end to the year and an even better beginning to the new one...as they say in some countries, what you do on NYE you will do all year. (TE might be scoffing cheese and wines, not too shabby right?!).

Yours faithfully,

Looking like Marilyn Monroe

“I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it.” 

Looking fabulous during Christmas festivities may prove to be a little bit difficult. Too many parties and too much champagne.

Thankfully, my saviour friends prepared me in time to prevent any downfall and suggested some products to survive the party season (in style).

This morning I wanted to replicate Marilyn Monroe style (probably because I recently saw the movie: "My week with Marilyn"!) so I head towards the shower room with a mission: to help my poorly hydrated hair to gain volume and strengths.

First step: How to help my after-party hair

I used my Daniel Galvin Junior Organic Hangover Luxury Shampoo and Luxury Conditioner: These lovely products are perfect for this season of parties. They feature lavender essential oil as the key ingredient, to refresh and revitalise dull and tired hair. 

The fresh lavender essential oils and vitamins packed into each bottle hydrate and detoxify – so stressed out tresses look glossy, and are left feeling, and smelling, fabulous.
They are also very affordable at £4.99 each.

Second Step: Make myself look like a bombshell
The uber-glamorous 50’s tight curl can be easily created with the Instyler.

Instyler is a 3 in 1 hair tool which creates salon-fresh looks (even if you are not a professional hairdresser). And because it straightens, curls and polishes with a rotating cylinder my hair-do looked more natural than with any other hair curlers. It is really worth a try if you are planning to play the Hollywood star role this Christmas season or if you are trying to be Marilyn Monroe, like I am!

Why not ask Santa to bring you one? It's £99 (please Santa don't be stingy!), available at Boots (please Santa don't be lazy) and it can be shared with your sisters and girlfriends... what more would you like from a Christmas present?

A coffee with Jimmy Choo

When you drink coffee, you have 2 choices: conform or be stylish. 
The old brown Starbucks cardboard sleeves tired me and the new Jimmy Choo Rika coffee cup holder helped my morning coffee break to be fashionable.

Cardboard is an old memory here at Trisori's headquarter. Jimmy Choo added a touch of style to our cups. Beautifully made with Mock Croc Leather and attention to details. Nothing says couture coffee more than Jimmy Choo and we finally have a reusable coffee sleeve that compliments our freshly manicured nails and our shoes. Being Italian and a caffeine addict, Rika leather coffee cup sleeve is a MUST have.

If you are looking for a last minute present, head to Bond Street or buy Rika online at: http://eu.jimmychoo.com/cruise-12/rika/invt/113rikamoc/

It comes in a variety of colours too. How haute!

Wanted: Loafers

Whilst most of us might think loafers are geeky or even, dare I say it, unfeminine, TE has very strong views on the matter and has hard evidence of the coolness factor these babies add to any outfit.

Just one rule - to be worn exclusively with trousers, the result of a skirt-and-loafer combo could be fatal.

My pick of the wide range of loafers I have seen around town has to narrow down to a top 3:

#1 Top Shop studded loafer
Honestly, cannot find any fault: price, comfort, cool factor. They have it all. And I just *had* to have them (husband will have a shock, he's still moaning about the last pair of shoes purchased...ahem...a 'few' weeks ago).

#2 The classic loafer
Traditional, evergreen, stylish - this one from Asos but many available on high street and the likes

#3 Loafers with heels
For those that really cannot do the whole flat pump thing these gorgeous Uterque heeled loafers will do the trick

TE thinks these are all very viable options for the fashion- forward girls out there, watch this space - come spring everyone will be lusting for your loafers!

Enjoy the great christmas season and give thanks for the lovely fashion gifts that you will no doubt receive :)

Yours Faithfully, TE

Beauty tips: Bye Bye Panda eyes!

The run up to Christmas it's a crazy time of the year. Trisori's headquarter becomes incredibly busy with clients ordering their last minute gifts, overseas shops asking for immediate delivery..... and my beauty routine suffers because of it.

I thought I was destined to live with my Panda eyes until I found these 2 marvelous products:

Skin Wisdom Eye Roll: It's a lovely little product that helps reducing the appearance of Dark circles and puffy eyes. It retails for 7 pounds and it's worth a try as the massaging roll applicator boosts micro circulation and drainage.

Then I helped myself to Skin Wisdom Beauty Balm: The acerola cherry and moisturizing ingredients help skin to look fresher and less stressed. This is another small little beauty product to use together with the eye roll on. I was really glad to have them at hand after an event last Thursday! My face really looked less tired and it costs only 6 pounds!

And finally, before going to bed, I applied a Delicious Kit ChapStick:
to soften my lips and preserving them for morning use. My favorite is the Cherry Chapstick and I am going to buy the kit above as a stocking filler. Isn't it the cutest chapstick ever? And it's only 3.99 pounds.

Isn't it the cutest chapstick ever? And it's only 3.99 pounds.

Christmas Presents To Warm The Soul.

The weeks before christmas I find myself panicking about what I should get my family. For some, choosing presents for their friends and family is second nature, but for people like me I tend to get stuck after brainstorming ideas that, well simply don't fit in my wee budget! Presents, symbolise your love for the receiver, shows that you care however small or large the size. After jotting down some ideas in my notepad, I noticed there was a running theme: Comfort. Un- consciously I had listed presents that gave my family a sense of security: hot water bottle, slippers, candles, incense. Yes, maybe a chanel bag would be a more thrilling present to receive. But heart warming presents, for me, are just as lovely.

With this concept in mind I thought I would share some of my favorite gift ideas for this christmas.

Hush, the suppliers of all my favorite cosy cashmere cardigans, has produced a gift set especially for this festive season. Incorporating this seasons combination of 'in' colours, this makes the perfect gift, and for a great offer of for only £95 pounds.
For only £38 pounds, this Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Body and Hand Lotion from Jo Malone is an ideal stocking filler or present for any lovely lady! I have always lucked out with Jo Malone, as whom ever the gift is for it is always a very successful reception!

I saw this mug a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love... embracing this love at first sight i bought one instantly! Having your hot cup of tea (or coffee) in a 'christmassy' mug, heightens the festivity this joyful season brings. Worth £17.95 this cup is a brilliant pressie for all.

Last year in my annual pre-christmas panic, Neom Luxury Organic Candles came to the rescue. With the beautiful aroma of Cinnamon, Ginger and Mandarin, Neom has created a lovely warming christmas scent worth £40.

Hopefully, for those who share my lack of skill for christmas shopping- I have given you some ideas of perfect presents to warm The Soul.

The Jewel That Was Elizabeth Taylor

Beautiful, legendary, Successful, Hollywood's leading 'Golden Age' Lady, and serial wife, Elizabeth Taylor will be remembered for a lot of things, not least for her collection of stunning jewels. Taylor said herself that she always felt as though she were ' only the custodian of [her] jewellery', which is what led her to the decision she made before her death earlier this year; to auction them. This auction will give those who can afford life's finest sparkles the chance to bid on these exquisite one of a kind jewels.

I have picked a few my favorite dazzling pieces...

It is hardly a secret Elizabeth Taylor, fell in love more than a few times...but diamonds were her life long love affair. This diamond ring given to her by her on/off husband Robert Burton, was to quote the Actress: her "baby". To bid for such an item would be a bid for one of the most historic love stories.

Another generous gift from praised actor, enigmatic Richard Burton, was an enchanting emerald-and-flower head jewel by Bulgari. This spectacular head piece, is worn by Elizabeth along with a beautiful brooch and dangling earings also by Bulgari.

Two equally breath-taking items from her collection, given to her by her then producer husband Mike Todd. These gifts from Cartier are utter perfection (very suiting). Feasting my eyes on all these magnificent pendants, i am able to catch a glimpse of the legacy that was Elizabeth Taylor.

The stories of all these jewels are like the movies she starred in, very glamorous!

The legendary Dontella Versace, has designed some of the most exquisite collections in history cementing her brand as one of the most luxurious lines on the designer market. Although I have often dreamt of having my very own Versace number hanging in my wardrobe, I was convinced this could not be a reality any time soon. But from November 17th a reality it is, due to a greatly anticipated collaboration with high-street brand H&M, allowing Versace's creative genius to be accessed by a wider audience.

As H&M have just released a few select looks from the H&M 2011 collaboration range (which will be quickly followed by a pre-spring collection in January 2012) i thought i would chose a few of my favorite looks to get you just as excited as me! 
‘Versace is one of the most important brands of recent times, and their collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant—everything Versace stands for,’ H&M Creative Advisor commented in the release.; these three colourful ensembles definitely represent Versace's 'flamboyant' creative input. 

Another extremely eye-catching outfit is this orange sequined dress. A beautiful design with a pink sunset this dress hangs loosely; flattering without clinging to your curves. The gold accessories compliment this outfit to perfection bringing out the lovely warm colours of the dress. 

Not as show-stopping but a must-have, none the less is the little black dress. This corseted black dress paired with a feisty pair of heels and a bright statement clutch, is an essential to any fabulous collection.
“Versace’s collection for H&M is a moment in fashion. It is full of strong pieces that stand out, with colours, prints and cuts that are clean and precise"
So clear your calendar on November 17th ladies, because these looks will sell out quick!

Sexy Santa bring me a present from Notting Hill (please)!

Every year I fall in the trap of buying all my Christmas presents the week before Christmas. It is one of the things I try to avoid: packed shops, tourists everywhere and the feeling that you are about to faint because of the excess of perfume that certain people tend to wear.
Nevertheless, I repeatedly end up on the 22nd of December with a long list of "to buy".
If instead you'd like to be considered, organised and extremely generous, you can buy me any of the following pieces of lingerie (*Hint... ;-)) :

Mimi Holliday Nonnettes Navy Plunge Bra (51£)

Mimi Holliday Nonnettes Boyshort Brief (40£)

Mimi Holliday Macaroon Peach Slip (86£)

The lingerie is from a brand called Dolci follie and You can also go and visit their Notting Hill shop at 28A Hereford Road. The boutique has been created specifically for lingerie lovers housing contemporary designs within a lavish setting reminiscent of a Venetian Palazzo. What more would you like?

Bag *this*!

These days TE finds itself a bit less wealthy than before; put it down to tax increases, the inflation or whatever else affects TE's income (chocolate??).


Fact is, the days of a Mulberry bag per season have sailed for TE it thinks.

So TE being quite the entrepreneur (in fashion terms) has set out to find something to quench the thirst for bag-ness without breaking the old bank.

Just FYI, even if you are still filthy rich, these days you should be acting with austerity given that it's the word of the jour! Also the role of damsel in distress and all that is quite sexy. Men love it.

So this is what TE found for you lot, a safe haven of lovely soft leather bags that range from 100£ to 400£. Now what is wrong with that?!

Nothing, that's the cool thing.

Look here, it's a bag from Uterque the latest sibling of Inditex (think Zara, Massimo Dutti etc). And boy do they deliver!

The models are classy and the leather is buttery (look for the 100% leather models!).

TE really likes these arm candies and frankly feels that the husband should *not* complain about TE having "enough" handbags.

Honestly, where does said husband get such ideas??...the word "enough" is banned from anything associated to TE's belongings. Fact.

TE will report back soon, in the meantime enjoy bagging these lovelies!

Yours Faithfully,
The Eye (aka TE)

Put a hat on it

Tis that time of the year again when we crave warm clothes and comfy wraps. Cashmere to be more precise (santa did you get that *hint*).

Not that the summer has actually happened in London but being perfectly honest TE has a certain preference for autumnal colours. The reds, the hues of oranges, the grey skies...all sources of great inspiration to TE. I mean, let's be frank, it doesn't take much for TE to find an excuse to shop.

Currently TE is channeling head-wear more than actual clothes and what can it say that hasn't been said before? Not much really, except that TE really endorses these trilbys and fedoras that it is seeing on mags and in streets. Actually, TE has brought itself one of the most acclaimed brands: Christys (http://christys-hats.com/). Namely the Marylebone in Bessemer (shown here in light grey, a picture taken by TE might follow if you wish).

TE completely endorses the acclaims. It is a beautiful hat and for someone like TE who is by far no hat specialist it looks the business: creamy silk lining, proper thick felt and the stitches of well-made stuff. Yes, TE must say it is quite impressed by the quality and for 65£ we say it's a bargain...well, you make of it what you wish but TE will just end with one thing: this winter a trendy fedora hat is a must!

Happy start to the autumn.

Yours faithfully, The Eye (aka TE)

A few nights in Normandy

A friend and I decided to get away for a few days and head over to her place in Normandy to enjoy the autumnal views and cosy evenings over there as well as a spot of maintenance. So we sped over to Portsmouth straight after work to catch the ferry. Doing the ferry crossing overnight makes sense in terms of time saving, until you're woken up by strange music at 5am hammering right into your ears from right above your head! We then made the early morning drive to Boudet from Caen stopping for a French version of a cappuccino (a viennese coffee if you ask me) and a pain au raisin along the way to up energy levels.

One we arrived, I got the grand tour of all the buildings there, which centres around a beautiful grassy courtyard from its original farm days. The large house - originally the farm, sleeps 10 whilst the converted barn sleeps 8 (9 with the sofa bed) and then there's the cider press which sleeps a couple (at half board self catering.) They have all been done up in classic French country style of the area - surrounding Manche near St Michel with a few shaker fittings - minimlist but with sweet homely touches. Surrounded by apple trees with a couple of vines and pear trees, one really does get the feeling of being in rural France. Especially with the vast garden complete with pond and al fresco dining areas.

Supermarkets are not too far away so we stopped off at the nearest one in the closest town to choose a few things to eat for that day before coming back, eating and collapsing. I never sleep in the day, but by this point, I was so physically exhausted that I managed to sleep for around 3 hours until it got dark when we lit a fire and snuggled in front of it watching TV and flicking through magazines.

Being Autumn, rather cold, a little rainy, and me not feeling too hot, I didn't really want to venture outside too much, but had it been nice, it would have been a perfect opportunity to take the bikes out (kept in the shed - a traditional Norman bake house which all houses have access to) and see some of the Norman countryside in its glory. I hear that spring is a beautiful time here but for me nothing beats the wonderful colours of the autumn leaves turning on the trees. There's even a croquet lawn for the sunnier months.

One could have a really cosy time here a deux, as those who have already stayed in the cider press will attest to. It maintains many of the old features, giving the place a real character with a mezzanine bedroom nestled upstairs and open plan kitchenette in the main space as you open the large stable like doors. Or this could act as an overspill for parties for either or both houses, thus sleeping a maximum of 20-21 in total for a huge gathering - family, friends on holiday or for special occasions.
