Inside Vogue by Alexandra Shulman


In the run up to the much celebrated 100th anniversary of edition of Vogue, UK Editor in Chief, Alexandra Shulman chronicled her working life, sharing her expiriences inside Vogue. From the star studded A-List excitement you might expect from the editor of a glossy mag, though to the domestic maelstrom we all face as working mothers, Inside Vogue is a refreshingly honest take on life in the fashion world.

The Cool Factor by Andrea Linett


This book, from celebrated new york stylist and all round cool girl, Andrea Linett, sets out to ‘demistfy cool’. We all know those women who can throw on skinny jeans and a cashmere sweater an looking utterly cool, or dress down a cocktail dress with Converse trainers and some how pull it off. In her blue print for effortless chic Andrea shows you how it’s done.

We love nothing more than a stylish coffee table book, and we think we might have found our new favourite.  Featuring some of the most photographed and iconic hair styles of our time. Celebrity hairstylist, Sam McKnight’s new book acts as a who’s who of the ‘do, straight from the covers of almost every glossy magazine you can think of. We loved flicking through the gorgeous imagery in this book and its on our gift list for all our beauty loving friends.
