Welcome to the first installment of ‘Editor’s Picks’. Going forward this will be a regular feature on Gurlinterrupted, showcasing what I’m currently coveting – aka – obsessing over, shopping edits, best beauty finds and fashion lookbooks, right through to various random infatuations. A glimpse through the looking-glass if you will, into what I’m personally loving! This weeks Editor’s Picks….
The Aromatherapy Co. – Therapy Kitchen
It’s no secret I am a HUGE fan of candles. Admittedly I do tend to burn candles like it’s some kind of daily ritual that must be performed to ward off a bad day. But in all seriousness I do feel the need to always have the house filled with welcoming, beautiful scents and it’s just so fitting that I’ve now found an entire range that is actually ‘room specific’, now even my kitchen smells like heaven. If you’ve not yet discovered The Aromatherapy Company ‘Therapy Kitchen’ range, go and check it out now! I am literally in love with this collection featuring apothecary style candles, a diffuser, hand wash and hand lotion, all blended with the 100% pure and natural essential oils of Lemongrass, Lime and Bergamot.

Lip Pens, Lipstick Pencils, Pen Sticks, Lip Crayons – call them what you will, I’m loving these ‘lipsticks in pencil form’. Typical of my personality – ‘all or nothing’, I tried lipstick pencils once and from that moment on decided I need to add to my growing collection every time I come across one. The latest lip pencils that I am using on an almost daily basis are the new Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks. Application is effortless and the range of colours – swoon-worthy. They’re not matte, cream, balm or gloss, they’re an amazing wearable texture in a range of super pigmented colours that I am thoroughly enjoying.
Shop it: RRP$17 from Farmers, K-Mart and selected Pharmacies.
The Rolls Royce of nail varnish – butter LONDON have just released their Winter 2013 Nail Lacquer Collections and it just so happens one of their new collections is aptly named ‘Glamorous Greens’ (you know my affinity for the colour green), so obviously this is the collection of choice for me, because after all – GREEN is the new black don’t you know. I’m wearing Jack The Lad right now and I never want to remove it, well maybe I will as I’m dying to try Sloane Ranger next. Check out this stunning collection from butter LONDON.
Shop it: RRP$30, available in gift stores, boutiques and spas nationwide
L – R: Fish Wife, Jack The Lad, Two Fingered Salute, Stag Do, Sloane Ranger
Dress Of The Week
The Verity Aztec Flock Halter Lantern Dress. I’m coveting lantern dresses right now – an effortless chic look on pretty much all body shapes and this boohoo.com Verity Aztec Flock Halter Lantern Dress is my pick of the bunch! Gorgeous colour (also available in coral), fabulous fabric and just a ‘must have’ for my wardrobe this season.
Shop it: RRP$60 and FREE shipping from boohoo.com
Perfume & Pretty Things
A Glimpse into my current trinkets and perfume faves… Changing up my iPhone cover this week, the Chanel is going into storage and I’m breaking out the Louis! I know it’s blingy, but I just don’t care – I just love my new LV cell case.
I was very spoilt recently when my guy popped overseas on business and came back with a new perfume for moi – Gucci Premiere. If you’re anything like me and have a love for Gucci scents, you must check out Premiere.
Jewellery – currently loving my Colette Hayman long chain, gold crucifix necklace with black diamond detailing – fab for dressing up any outfit and versatile when converted into a wrist-wrap.
Last but not least, my love for tiny delicate jewellery (rings in particular) continues and these Lovisa black and gold rings featuring skulls and crosses are being taken for a spin on a daily basis!
Stay tuned for the next installment of Gurlinterrupted’s ‘Editor’s Picks’.
