Lulu Guinness Collaborates With Clinique – I am so excited about one of my favourite accessories designers Lulu Guinness’ collaboration with Clinique in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital’s Kiss It Better charity for children with cancer. It’s very exclusive with just ten of these limited edition gems being made. Lulu Guinness has signed each of her ten special pink-coloured Izzy bags, which all contain a complete set of Clinique Chubby Sticks. Perfection meets perfection. All ten will be available in February for £550 from House of Fraser online. It’s a great buy to mark the charity’s 10th anniversary.

Marks & Spencer’s Clothing Sales Drop – I think this is a great shame, as dealing with the PR team in Scotland a lot, I know M&S have really focused in recent years on making their collections very fashion-forward and away from just comfy knickers. They have had some stunning and high quality pieces. Unfortunately, I think their price points have always been a little too high; even in their festive sale. Their publicity campaigns and celebrity endorsements have been great, so I don’t think anything can rescue this.

House of Fraser Launches Plus-Size Online Boutique – This is brilliant, as not many of the clothing offerings there at the moment cater to larger dress sizes. The buyers at HoF are great, so I think they will pick some amazing items.
