Rouge Diorific in Gypsy Red - Frida's Favourite Lipstick! Xx

The girls and me - Blerta, Moza, Claire and Frida were all
 gathered in Costa last Friday
for our normal morning coffee, when Frida said
she had run out of her favourite lipstick 
and just had to go and buy another.

I normally have about seven in my bag, 
and was not used to this absolute faithfulness 
to one colour and one brand of lipstick, 
and just had to know what it was. 

Frida showed me the old lipstick
which had been used up so there was absolutely
none left - I mean none - it was EMPTY!
It used to be Rouge Diorfic in 22, Gypsy Rose
which she completely adores
and has about 60 empties at home 
which her daughter collects,
and puts along the window-sill in her 
bedroom as the cases are so beautiful!! Xx

Frida ran off to Bentalls to buy her lipstick and came
back with this gorgeous Dior bag - we all love these Dior Bags ...

...and inside sure enough is her new Diorific Gypsy Rose

Diorific is encased in a beautiful blue and gold case.

Gypsy Rose is the most beautiful iridescent burgundy red.
Frida says she reapplies it many times a day
and pretty much 'eats' it! Xx lol! 

Here she is applying ...

... and here is the beautiful result!
Frida looks Gorgeous! Xx

So what is YOUR favourite lipstick??

Dolce & Gabbana Animalier Make up Collection! Xx

Sparkle Style are loving the  
the New Dolce and Gabbana Make Up Animalier Collection.

The new limited-edition makeup range for Xmas is inspired by the 
timeless icon of the Dolce and Gabbana world: leopard print.

The Animalier Signature Collection is embodied 
by actress and Dolce and Gabbana muse, Felicity Jones. 

Wearing an Animalier corset dress and the ultimate red lipstick, iconic
 she redefines the classic print for a new era.

You can check Grazia Daily for exclusive picture
and Video Here:

“The Animalier Bronzer makes me feel instantly confident and strong,” 
she says. “It gives my skin a warm, radiant glow.
 I’m quite pale so the right bronzer is hard to find, but this is just perfect 
– its subtle tones have a light shimmer which looks so lovely. 
It really brings the whole look together and, of course, 
the leopard print just is ‘Dolce and Gabbana’.”

The refined collection incorporates opulent shades for lips, eyes, 
nails and complexion, encased in specially created leopard print packaging,
which we all associate with Dolce and Gabbana.

Girls Aloud Pandora Bracelets! Xx

PANDORA is embarking on a new exciting project; 
sponsoring Girls Aloud Ten, The Hits Tour 2013, 
which will take place in February and March next year.
 November 2012 will mark ten years since the girl band
 were formed on the ITV1 programme: ‘Popstars: The Rivals’.

As part of the collaboration, each band member has built their own
PANDORA charm bracelet, reflecting their individual 
personalities and their treasured, 
unforgettable moments from their lives.
Kimberley’s two tone bracelet illustrates luxury and sophistication. 
The openwork star charms feature gold and diamond 
accents which add to the indulgence of this piece.

Nadine's Beginner's Bracelet £99

The chunky sterling silver and coloured pavé charms 
featured in Sarah’s design are surely a reflection 
of her fashion-forward style. 
The symmetry of the design keeps the
 bracelet subtle, yet stylish.

Sarah's Beginners Bracelet:£199
See Sarah in the Agent Provocateur Show
in My Post:

Cheryl’s choice of a silver crown, surrounded 
by beautiful pavé charms and two-tone clips, 
symbolises her successful career and glamorous lifestyle. 
A touching memory of her performance at the 
Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Cheryl's Beginners Bracelet is £190


The 5 clip bracelet chosen by Nadine is certainly

 a reflection of her feminine personality.
The delicately embellished clips with gold detail

add sophistication and elegance to this design.

This is her Beginners Bracelet £99


Nicola’s choice of a woven leather bracelet offers 
a casual yet chic take on the classic charm bracelet. 
The choice of sparkling black pavé and 
intricate gold and enamel charms add 
glamour and edginess to this design.

Beginners Bracelet £90

The five piece girl band have supported the 

collaboration with visible product placement, 
wearing their personally designed bracelet
 in a special photo shoot and their music video 
for the new single ‘Something New’. 

Several short films have also been created in 

which they talk about their unforgettable moments 
throughout their lives, their journey with the band 
and poignant occasions with their families.

PANDORA will also offer its club members a 

unique opportunity to buy the Girls Aloud concert
 tickets 48 hours before general release,
 rewarding club loyalty and also enabling strong recruitment. 
Any customers that sign up to PANDORA Club during 
this period will automatically enter into a prize draw 
to meet and greet the girls and win a free bracelet of their choice.

President for PANDORA Western Europe,

 Peter Andersen commented; 
“We are delighted to be working with Girls Aloud 
and sponsoring their tour, for us they are the perfect band to support.
 They appeal to a wide family audience, 
most notably the female demographic which is key for us. 
This celebrity partnership is the first of its kind 
for PANDORA UK, it is fantastic to see the five different bracelets,
 which express the girl’s own individuality and journey. 
We hope the activity on our website and throughout
 our stockists will capture the excitement of the reunion 
and allow fans to share their experiences and memories of Girls Aloud.”

In return the band commented, 
“We are so excited to be working on this partnership with PANDORA. 
We loved building our bracelets and sharing our
 stories and unforgettable moments. 
PANDORA is so versatile and allows you to create 
something unique and personal to you, 
our five bracelets reflect our different styles 
and personalities. We are really looking forward to going back 
on tour and meeting the lucky PANDORA club members too.”
