Let’s get nosey….

Brave Jo, from Katie and Jo boutique in London is willing to let us rifle through her bag!! Here are her key items she can’t leave home without.
Currently I am using a black Python Lucinda bag from Sarah Forsyth.
1. Laboratory Perfumes has just unveiled its third fragrance and it smells totally amazing. The scent is clean, natural and highly addictive and I can’t stop spraying it! £45.00

2. Scarves make for good layering pieces throughout Autumn and are easy to carry around. I love this eye catching snakeskin print scarf by Ashiana.
£150.00 coming soon to Katie and Jo.

3. Metallic fabrics are big news for Autumn/Winter 13 so this silver Becksondergaard purse is the perfect way to update my bag. £65.00

4.  I never leave the house without my MAC Face & Body foundation £21.50

and Bobbi Brown blusher. £19 
5. Most importantly…. a padlock for my bike!

Lots of love

Tab it

So I’m not going to lie… this isn’t one of our most ground braking blogs but I keep being asked how I keep jewellery from tarnishing. Ribbon and Roses or other. We live here in Singapore in 98% humidity, which is 100% a bad hair day daily along with the pain that everything tarnishing or going damp.

I have found a solution… thanks to my fellow jewellery pal.

Jewellery tabs…. You can find them all over from E bay to Amazon but in Singapore they are sold in Beads etc, Orchard Central. Tel: 67346136.

Pop one of these tabs inside your jewellery box, or give your tarnished goods a good Aladdin rub and they should shine like new!

We are going to be putting them from now on in our jewellery bags.

Lots of love
