Christmas comes Early with Unineed

With the last bank holiday of the year well and truly over, and with children returning back to school after the summer break, I think it is safe to say that Autumn is well and truly here. With the start of the new season, I’m afraid to say I start to look ahead to Christmas, to make my lists and do some forward planning, trying to find a few bargains along the way.

I have good reasons for getting stuck into the Christmas shopping so early – my little boy also has a Christmas birthday, and I have special family birthdays in October and November, as well as two family wedding anniversaries in December, so I find those final few months of the year to be very expensive. I also have an ever-expanding family, with two new members to buy for this year. So that list has now been started, and I’ve been looking to Unineed for inspiration.

Unineed is the perfect destination for those searching for luxury, designer presents for their loved ones. An online fashion and beauty retailer, Unineed offers over 150 premium brands and thousands of products covering skincare, makeup and accessories. What is really great about this website is that many of the products have huge savings, with up to 70% off premium brands. Burberry, Zatchels, Dior, Clarins and Benefit just some of the great names you can find there.

In addition, Unineed offers worldwide delivery, and also has daily hot offers, which are well worth a look due to the huge savings and premium names on offer.

Here are some of the things I am adding to my wish list this Autumn…and maybe I might find a couple of these in my stocking come December 25th…

Zatchels The Jacky Tsai collection

Zatchels have done it again! The ‘it-bag’ manufacturers have come up with another unmissable collaboration, this time with artist Jackie Tsai.  Chinese artist Jacky is no stranger to iconic images, the famous  floral skull design from Alexander McQueen was a Jacky Tsai creation, and now she has created a stunning range of designs that incorporate the best of Pop Art with Eastern mysticism, and team it with Zatchels fabulous. leather, made in Britain bags.

There are three print designs. ‘Virus’ is the most colourful, teaming celestial blue and silver skies with pink and turquoise floral designs. ‘Petrol’ is a neon kaleidoscope of colour, vibrant and striking in equal measures. My favourite has to be ‘Skulls’, a gorgeous confection of glittering silver skulls that are obviously inspired by those McQueen pieces. The barrel bag in the Skulls design may just be my favourite bag ever.

Get the Celebrity look featuring the Duchess of Cambridge, Sarah Jessica Parker and Zatchels!

The summer rolls on and the stars continue to shine. This summer has seen so many great celebrity looks, ranging from beachy, sunsoaked styles to elegant dresses worn by actresses, TV celebrities and the stars of our favourite reality shows.

But today’s post is not just about holidays and pretty frocks. Celebrities from Nicole Scherzinger to Sarah Harding have been rocking some seriously beautiful jewellery from designers Katie Rowland and Zara Taylor London, whilst the lovely Laura Whitmore looks seriously fierce in an ear cuff from High Street brand Accessorize that costs just £8.

Here are some of the key looks and trends from some super stylish celebrities from this summer, many of which have been plucked from the High Street.

Sarah Harding loves Mya Blue Beach and Zatchels

Girls Aloud star Sarah popped into the offices of CiCi PR and selected some of her favourite designs from CiCi clients Mya Blue Luxe and Zatchels. The Manhattan kaftan from Mya Blue Luxe is already a celebrity favourite, with the lovely Georgia Horsley, soon to be Mrs Danny McFly, another fan of this exquisite piece.

Sarah also selected a stunning leather duffel bag in tangerine from hot brand Zatchels. Sarah is planning a trip to LA very soon, and this bag is certainly a perfect airport bag, wear it on your back and leave your hands free for browsing in the Tax Free shopping.

Sarah Harding wears Zara Taylor London

A few days later Sarah was photographed wearing a striking piece from Zara Taylor London. This cross design is a great look over a plain, simple shaped dress, adding a rock chick edge which Sarah complimented with chunky shoe-boots and Debbie Harry- esque hair.

Nicole Scherzinger wears Katie Rowland

I fell in love with Katie Rowland’s jewel designs at a press event earlier this year, so it was lovely to see them worn so publicly by X Factor judge and all-round Goddess Nicole Scherzinger. Delicate and pretty, the necklace is a piece you could easily wear every day, whilst the ring is an absolute showstopper.

Frankie Essex wears Love

Frankie Essex made a great choice of dress for her recent publicity photographs for her new range of hair extensions. This lace effect, a-line dress from In Love with Fashion has a really pretty feel. I would love to see Frankie grunge this up a little with black opaques once the temperatures start to fall.

Carrie Bradshaw style at Boden

This is not really a celebrity spot, but when I saw this great new dress from Boden’s Autumn and Winter range, I couldn’t help but think of ‘An American Girl in Paris’ and Carrie Bradshaw. Maybe Boden were thinking along the same lines, hence the very Parisian name Amelie…?

Laura Whitmore in Accessorize

Laura Whitmore always impresses with her style choices, and in her latest magazine shoot for Cosmopolitan, she shows the power of great accessories. The petal ear cuff is the standout piece, a touch of glamorous ‘bling’ that dresses up even the most tough and masculine of outfits.

This earcuff is not currently available online, but they do have a couple of beauties in stock to help you get a similar sort of look.

Paula Patton wears French Connection

The beautiful actress Paula Patton (so good in Deja Vu) is not necessarily the sort of actress you imagine wearing High Street pieces, but that is exactly what she did on Chelsea Lately, when she opted for a dress from French Connection.

Kate Middleton’s Max Mara Coat – back in stock and renamed

A sell out last time around, the middle of summer may not seem the best time to be thinking about your Winter coat, but as this one has been worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, it may not actually stick around for long. The Max Mara Studio belted cashmere coat has been cleverly renamed(what else?) ‘Kate’ and is a real classic piece of luxury. If you can afford it, it is worth the investment.

Sam Faiers in Celeb Boutique

Celeb Boutique is very quickly becoming another cult brand that is just loved by celebrities. Sam Faiers is the latest to wear its pieces, choosing a hot pink bandage style crop top for a recent holiday with her girlfriends.

Samantha Barks wears Reiss

Samantha Barks is a rising style star, one who always seems to be occasion appropriate and totally immaculate. I loved her recent choice of the Reiss fit and flare dress, which she teamed with colour pop heels for maximum effect.

Ruth Langsford wears Phase Eight

And finally, we have television presenter Ruth Langsford, who recently chose a wonderfully bright printed dress from Phase Eight for presenting ‘This Morning’. The dress, with its jewel print, is just gorgeous, and is still available in a few sizes.
