You're white on time!

Bigger is always better and this retro alarm clock is no exception. Those clever people at the Karlsson design team decided to launch an extra large version of the classic alarm clock.  The clock also features a sweep movement which means that the time slips by without a sound, until the alarm sounds the next morning and looks perfect in any room.

I got mine from The White Company.

Introducing Ambre Vanille

Laura Mercier has put a new spin on her honey bath collection with Ambre Vanille Honey Bath (£31, 12oz). It’s a beautiful, sensuous fragrance that will leave the skin soft and make you feel as though you have a spa experience in your very own home.
Being that it has shea butter, it’s incredibly rich without feeling heavy. The scent is nothing short of heavenly and exactly what you would expect of Laura Mercier. It’s available at SpaceNK now but be quick, rumour has it that it is so popular in the USA that Saks is selling limited quantities per customer!

It was only launched on Wednesday but already Katy Perry has been snapped in my beautiful hometown of Sydney wearing a chinoiserie print Butterfield 8 sweater - that's hot!

Without a doubt this it is one of the best Wheels & Dollbaby collections and several of the garments are right up there with the likes of my personal favourite Skull Print Dress (that I wore to my engagement party) and the demure yet ├╝ber sexy Marie Antoinette Dress.

The Dita Cardigan has been remade for this collection in a gorgeous powder blue and I think that will be one of my next purchases... Hubby, where is your Amex???

Get your fashion fix right here at Wheels & Dollbaby.

Just Taking the Cats for a Walk!

[caption id="attachment_386" align="aligncenter" width="580"] Kobi Levi Miao Shoes[/caption]

Having a blog called Salon Kitty it was only a matter of time until I posted the puurrrrfect pair of shoes!

Israeli designer Kobi Levi first shoe designs were created during his high school days and back then they were made from cardboard. Nowadays all pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials.

The Miao design captures the grace and elegance in a cat's movement while stretching its limbs. Many actually see it as a dog. Either way, it seems so alive you expect it to jump in a giant leap straight into your lap.  The playful tail and pink bell strap and personality and are oh so cute!

Interesting fact: Lady Gaga wore Kobi's Double Boot in her "Born this Way" music video!
