Liberty’s the chosen resort of the artistic shopper

The heritage department store Liberty’s dates back to the late 18th century, when it offered original and unique items, and its heritage still prevails today.

“Liberty is the chosen resort of the artistic shopper.” – Oscar Wilde

It certainly has some unique collections of fabrics, ornaments and objects d’art from all over the World, as well as its designer clothing, accessories and health and beauty products.  It certainly seems its founder’s vision has survived the test of time.

“I was determined not to follow existing fashions but to create new ones.” – Arthur Lasenby Liberty

It is hardly surprising that my mother Sylvia Anderson, who was a Pioneer for Women in Film and Television and a creator of fashion in the sixties, loved Liberty’s.  She introduced me to this fabulous emporium as a child and bought me the famous floral Liberty’s fabric for me to make my first dress.  I have been shopping there ever since.

So now we are giving you the opportunity to relish the delights of this iconic store in the heart of London with a chance to win a gift card worth £100 , just enter using the form below, good luck.

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee – It Can Taste As Good

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee – It Can Taste As Good

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

I recently heard on the radio a so called coffee expert and Barista exclaiming that the aroma of coffee is always so good that the taste never fails to disappoint.

As my friends will tell you I always rise to a challenge, and have been investigating this notion ever since, and think I have proved her wrong!

A long time buddy of mine bought me a Tassimo coffee maker for my birthday at the end of last year, which has totally revolutionised my life in that not only does it cut out the painful cleaning of my old coffee machine, but it makes incredible coffee too. Now you may think that this is an advertisement for the Tassimo, but I assure you it is not, I am just sharing my knowledge and excitement at this recent discovery! Tassimo have a new range of machines in fantastic colours.

 

The coffee and creamer comes in separate capsules and you simply slot them into the top of the machine and away you go. The milk or creamer is delivered piping hot and steaming and frothy, just the way good coffee should be. Plus the taste really does not disappoint as with so many other makes of coffee, even in established coffee shops.

I am also going to invest in one for the office, as it will cut down on the crazy prices that have evolved since the birth of trendy coffee cafes such as Starbucks and Costa. Don’t get me wrong, I will still enjoy the occasional cup of coffee at the weekend when meeting up with girl friends in our local chic café, but for the everyday, will continue to enjoy the various types of coffee available for a Tassimo coffee machine.

So far I have tried COSTA cappuccino, COSTA macchiato, breakfast coffee and COSTA latte, and all of them are really good in their own way. Of course nothing beats going into a COSTA coffee shop with friends but now I can enjoy the great taste at home as well.

There are also lots more on the market, and I won’t spoil it for you, go and explore the coffee counter in your local supermarket once you have invested in a Tassimo, and let us know which one you enjoy the best. I am betting you will find it really hard to decide.

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Birth of a Cult: M.A.C From Wow to Now!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

All Ages, All Races, All Sexes… A professional makeup brand setting trends backstage at fashion weeks around the world. Today, M·A·C means so many things to its millions of fans in every corner of the planet, but a global beauty phenomenon has to begin somewhere.

Make-Up Art Cosmetics started life in Toronto, Canada. Makeup artist and photographer Frank Toskan and salon owner Frank Angelo became frustrated by the lack of makeup that photographed well, so they decided to create their own. At first, they made the cosmetics in their kitchen and sold them straight from the salon to fellow makeup artists, as well as models and photographers. Soon, stylists and fashion editors got in on the action. As the magazine credits racked up and word-of-mouth popularity grew, the duo launched M·A·C in March 1984 from a counter in a Toronto department store.

Their approach was chic utility, with the makeup coming in black pots rather than compacts. While other major makeup brands at the time were predominantly skincare companies, M·A·C chose instead to establish itself as the ultimate colour authority. Professional makeup artists manned the counter, an industry first. One of the most popular offerings was an intense matte red lipstick, which got a boost with an appearance in a photo-shoot of the fast-rising Madonna.

The company took the industry by storm, offering a wide range of products that blended street savvy with glamorous style and panache. Behind the counter, the M·A·C approach was notably different. Rather than driving sales through traditional promotional techniques, M·A·C relied on the integrity of its carefully formulated product line. Adding to the image was a touch of outrageousness. A company that honours individuality and self-expression above all else, it brought a brilliant sense of drag and theatre into the sleek M·A·C stores and department store counters.

M·A·C is sold today in over 105 countries around the world. It remains committed to developing new categories, products and over 50 collections each year, all of which continue to serve the demand of consumers and professional makeup artists alike.

Collaborations with adored names from popular culture, art and fashion have included such names as Rihanna, Lorde, Proenza Schouler, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Brooke Shields. These continue to enhance M·A·C’s relevance and reach to existing fans as well as new ones, while our makeup Artists’ rock-steady presence backstage at over 200 fashion week shows around the world, working with names from Prabal Gurung to Vivienne Westwood, secures the envied status of M·A·C as the world’s leading beauty trendsetter.
