CHANEL · Vison d’Asie: L’Art du Détail, Spring Summer 2019 Collection

Once Christmas passes, I begin anticipating the warmer weather with all the new beauty collections it brings, and first out of the gate for Spring/Summer 2019 is CHANEL’s Vision d’Asie: L’Art du Détail. Embarking on a photographic journey through Japan and South Korea, Lucia Pica — the brand’s head of makeup — was inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi: the art of seeing preciousness in imperfection, thereby elevating the mundane into something so much more.

L’Occitane en Provence · Holiday 2018

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I’m not a fan of gift sets; I should clarify and state that the one exception to that is anything from L’Occitane, and this year’s Holiday 2018 offerings are once again scoring high points for being 100% amazing.

And just like that, you can knock a few more names off that list.

Fresh Beauty · Holiday 2018 Gift Sets

To be perfectly clear, I’m actually not a fan of gift sets; for one, I’m a control freak and prefer curating my own ‘sets’ and secondly, I’ve always found that apart from one or two items, the rest of the pieces in a gift set are usually just ‘fillers‘. That said, these Fresh Gift Sets are making me rethink my stance. Why, you might ask? Well, because each and every single one is filled with a really fab selection. Oh, and how stinking cute is this year’s Holiday 2018 packaging? There’s even a gift tag included!
