Back to Creme de la Mer

My skin has been looking really terrible lately. The Winter weather has left my skin parched and lifeless. I have been trying a few different products, to no avail. Just when I was about to give up, I remembered how good my skin looked when I was using Creme de la Mer. The only thing stopping me from using it was the hefty price tag. This stuff is not cheap. I decided to bite the bullet and bought myself a small jar. My skin has already been transformed. So far so good...


I remember when I first started using Creme de la Mer, I felt less concerned about the appearance of fine lines and dehydration. Sometimes, I would wake in the morning and, after cleansing, would not feel like I needed any moisturiser. That was a first for me, especially for someone with very dry skin, 

I tell you this cream really works and after having tested many high end products over the years, I can firmly say that this cream comes up trumps. If you can afford it, buy it. 

La Mer have different creams to suit your skin type, from normal-dry-oily. They now have a new cream known as the Moisturising soft cream for those who prefer a lighter texture than the Creme de la Mer. 


It is my belief that sometimes one has to sacrifice other things for the sake of great looking skin, hence my lack of posts about any new clothing!! I feel that we only get one skin and therefore we should look after it. It's not like I'm getting any younger either. Although, this cream can help fix that problem!!

Here's a short video about the highly coveted Creme de la Mer and the miracle broth that has made this cream famous.


My week so far has started off to a great start. Today went by so fast, so let's hope the rest of the week continues to fly. I cannot wait to put my feet up and relax!! 

Have a great week!

Yours in style,

    1. Hi Meg, be sure to stop off at a La Mer counter and ask for a sample suited to your skin type. I always like to try before I buy. Thanks for your comment.

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

Update on Ralph Lauren in Australia

Most of you guys know how very fond I am of Ralph Lauren clothing, particularly the runway womenswear Collection label. I have published multiple posts showcasing this iconic American brand. The impeccable quality, fit and style of the Collection label is second to none-the creme de la creme, shall we say. I think the Ralph Lauren Purple Label for women, now named Collection, has the best slim fit cashmere sweaters on the luxury designer market today. I own several pieces. But now that's about to change. 

Why, you ask? Because Ralph Lauren Melbourne, Australia, is no longer going to carry the luxury Collection label. That's right folks. You heard it right. 

On a recent birthday stay in Melbourne earlier on in May, I visited the Ralph Lauren's Flagship Store on the Paris end of Collins Street. I had saved up my hard earned money to purchase another slim fit 100% cashmere sweater in Lux Tan. I looked around in the store eager with anticipation, hoping to find the sweater in qu…
