Frangrances and flowers with AERIN.

AERIN 2 AERIN 4

Perfume is such an important part of who I am, i’ve been wearing all different kinds throughout the years and I manage to attach them to different stages of life, people I meet/know and places I go. When I find an incredible fragrance though, sometimes it makes me feel things that perhaps don’t even exist. Sometimes I feel a fragrance can have such strong identity that they almost implant memories and feelings into my brain, weird huh? But it totally happens. Anyway the entire range of AERIN’s fragrances bring me such happiness, and with two new ones just having been released a few weeks ago, I’m beyond excited to get my hands on them!

I’m not trying to make things difficult but I genuinely can’t tell you which is my favourite, they are all equally moving fragrances, so i’d advise you get them all. Yes, they are definitely an investment at £85 per 50ml bottle, but I don’t see you ever regretting the purchase..

Ah & before I forget, we had some fun at Jamie Aston’s (quite a while back) creating some sweet smelling flower bouquets, inspired by the fragrances Ikat Jasmine, Amber Musk, Gardenia Rattan and Evening Rose’s stronger notes here’s a little video I made on the evening!

Things got a little messy in the Isko Denim X Bethnals room over LFW at the Apartment, but it didn’t make us want to hang out there any less. Anyway, here’s another outfit I wore during LFW. It was so weird this season, wearing clothes that were genuinely comfortable but equally looked awesome! I tend to do too comfy and wear clothes one would wear to. I don’t know.. the supermarket..okay perhaps not that bad. Anyway, all of the items are still available with the dress even being reduced to around £18 (yes it’s a dress, not a skirt), so go check them out!

New Marvel HQ: Entrance & Office

October 23, 2014

Kris Atomic New Mavel HQ -6242

Okay, so here we are! The first installation of #NewMarvelHQ! Here you can see my brand new entrance and office! If you saw my Pinterest board in my previous post, then you are already aware that I wanted quite a clean and modern vibe. Pops of colour when necessary but mostly whites and cold colours. There isn’t copious amounts to say with this area as it was probably the most straight forward part of the house, but that being said it is one of the most important. It’s literally the first thing people see; it sets the mood for the rest of the house and so I didn’t want it to be too cluttered or colourful and i think I successfully achieved a nice welcoming entrance.. thoughts?
