We love Lulu: inside the Lulu Guinness AW12 press day

It's not everyday that you get to meet one of your style icons but dreams really do come true...sometimes!
Now us gals are huge fans of Lulu Guinness we always have been. Our love affair with Lulu and her designs started way back when she launched her book  "Put on your pearls girls." 

The Powderpuff Girls were asked to go along to do what we do best, professionally pamper and preen the guest's. It was a match made in heaven. Almost all of us Powderpuff girls have a Lulu bag or two, or three or four and I won't tell you exactly how many I have.  Let's just say Mr me is fighting for air in our North London Flat. But atleast he is drowning in fabulousness! A shiny new red lips suitcase arrived in our hallway just the other day, I have no idea how that got there! 

 Anyway that's enough of that, let me show you the fabulous AW12 collection. Wishlist's at the ready gals!

Let's start with the all important make up bags, of course!

The iconic Lulu Cameo returns in a new circular shape shown below, we love the pearl detailing on the more classic shapes...

"Put your pearls on Girls" Lulu Guinness 

We love this Beauty and Brains make up bag from the collection named  "Don't judge a book by it's cover!"Inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Character in the 1957 film Funny Face.  

This collection features novelty collectables such as the Lulu's bookbags in a great new shapes with some of Lulu's favourite sayings:

"Confessions of a Glamour Girl" 

 "Dare to be different."

This collection also features the iconic shop front bag this time a bookshop inspired by the famous vintage book stores on Charing Cross road.

The Doll face returns but this time she is a Liberian with the most luscious lashes!

 And we just love the doll face fifi clutch below with lip hardware, you simply could not work in the make up industry without this.

Now for a nod to the 1950's, with these new shapes and fabrics all topped of with 
with shiny red or golden lip details. Swoontastic! 

And for the Jubilee a strong British theme! These pieces are in store now so if you can't wait for the new collection, go spoil yourself! 

I certainly can't wait! 

Me after my dream had come true with my goody bag 
and one of my all time favourite bags! 

Thank you for having us Lulu & team it was a pleasure to see you again 

Oh and one more thing..

Competition: Madmen Guys & Dolls

Murdock London and The Powder Room have joined forces to celebrate the new Mad Men series, a firm favourite with us both! So we thought we'd set up a competition to see who can match the styles of Don, Betty, Joan et al.

Here's how it goes:

Murdock Men if you know of a special lady that could blend in on the set of Mad Men, then post her photo on to Murdock Facebook wall  with the tag Mad Men Powderpuff Dolls. The gal with the most likes wins a Movie Star makeover - hair, make-up, nails, lashes and brows - from The Powder Room. The gent who posted the photo will receive a Murdock London Luxury Full service - shampoo and haircut, luxury wet shave, head massage and shoe shine.

Powderpuff Girls, if you're familiar with a well groomed gent that could rival Don and Roger then post his photo on The Powder Room's Facebook wall with the tag Mad Men Murdock Guys. The guy with the most likes wins a Murdock London Luxury Full service and the gal that posted the photo wins a Movie Star makeover at The Powder Rooms.

Closing date is April 23rd.

If your man isn't a Murdock Man then he should be, go get him groomed:

Murdock London is the luxury barbers and male grooming specialist with a simple desire to update the great traditions of British barbering and grooming and make those time-honoured practices relevant to the contemporary man. With four stores in the capital located in Shoreditch, Mayfair, Covent Garden and at Liberty on Regent Street they are firmly established as a primary destination for the new gent-about-town.
