The new scent has yet to reveal its name, it is however still causing quite a stir in the fashion industry!
The scent is said to smell different on every individual it touches!

A scent is in fact quite personal. It says a lot more about our personalities than you may think!

Those that are perfume connoisseurs will know never to mix two scents. The result is something mismatched as appose to elegant, chic, feminine, girly or dramatic!
When choosing a perfume never choose something too overpowering! The worst thing you can do is to spray the scent in an effortless manner! This will result in a harsh and over ruling scent as appose to a delicate and fresh scent!

This will create a subtle scent that is much more attractive and light!

A new season means a change in the weather, changes in the trends and a whole hoard of new purchases to be made!
The winter season makes us think a little differently about the beauty essentials we live by, for example beauty buys such as St Tropez, winter styled scents, caring facial moisturisers and hair care must-haves for the colder months.
With winter comes no sun, a chill in the air and a whole load of beauty dilemmas. These include the likes of dry skin, frizzy unruly dry locks, a red nose and blemishes we just don’t want!
Skin is also extremely pale due to the lack of rays and a night out may require the help of a little tanning creme in the shape of a spray or lotion. This will give that much needed glow, making you ,look like you have just returned from jet setting across the globe, for a fraction of the price of course!
Oversized fits all this year and summer jewellery in statement styles are the perfect accessories to turn a daytime tee or dress into an instant night time hit! This transformation takes place with the simple clip of a clasp and with so many designers choosing to supply us with this trend, the choice is overwhelming!
Opting for a statement piece in neutral shades is an investment as you will be able to wear the necklace with an assortment of outfits. One designer collaboration we have fallen for this season comes in the form of the hot collaboration from Erickson Beamon and dress designer Maria Grachvogal.
The pieces are said to be in the investment price bracket and should be snapped up as soon as possible in order to use them as inspiration for the high street shopping shop!
Opt for a few pieces in various shades in order to create a different look each time. Team with matching stud earrings as appose to massive pieces. Too much bling will result in losing the effect you are trying to create, think simple but statement!
The necklace offers a silver chunky chain with two large jewels in silver and pearl shades and a feather embellishment, this particular piece is priced at £384. There is a matching cuff available and it comes in a little more. Both are available from mariagrachvogal.com.
Oversized clothing is also very big for the coming winter – just look at New York Fashion week and the amount of boxy, baggy jackets on the catwalk! The oversized trend is great because it gives us an excuse to cover lumpy areas, however you need to be sure that when covering up you are also accentuating certains areas of your body – such as your waist or chest – with belts, necklaces or scarves.
If you are a larger lady then be very careful when wearing the oversized trend – too much material will just drown your figure. Try OneStopPlus online for some great items with a flattering fit!

Working for a major magazine and wearing a piece from last season just won’t do! This will only suggest that the magazine in question is not up to date on the latest fashions and clients will in turn go else where!
Prepping for an evening out or a press release is a must and can make or break a deal. Go shopping in advance and stock up on a few key pieces that you have had your eyes on all season. this way when it comes to a last minute event you will have some thing on trend and on hand to turn too when needed asap!
