Lolita Lempicka

When it comes to perfume, one of my favourite perfume brand is Lolita Lempicka. The first perfume by Lolita Lempicka was created by Annick Menardo in 1997, but sadly it has been discontinued in 2010 and later re-released as Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum.  In hopes of getting the original version of Lolita Lempicka, I've been diligently searching for a bottle of the older formulation, but Lolita Lempicka has indeed become quite rare and I haven't been able to get my hands on the original version. I ended up purchasing a bottle of Lolita Lempicka Le Premier Parfum from a friendly Carousell seller, who's selling off some of her older perfume collection. I decided to snag it, just to get a whiff of the newer version, and of course to complete my Lolita Lempicka collection.

Remembering Diana : A Life in Photographs

Remembering Diana : A Life in Photographs was released in 2017, commemorating the twentieth anniversary of Diana, Princess of Wales untimely death. A beautiful keepsake, dedicated to the one of a kind Princess Diana.

Foreword by best-selling author Tina Brown, this book contains beautiful photographs of Diana, a total of 100 photographs including some from her early childhood, such as this beautiful picture of her holding her pet guinea pig.


A celebration of the princess’s life in pictures, this is a beautifully illustrated book. Coffee table books are my kinda thing these days, as I love flicking through pictures, so I was super glad to have this in my collection.

Dec 1983 : Prince Charles and Princess Diana holding their 18 month old son, Willian as he stands on a bench in a garden at Kensington Palace.

November 11, 1988 - Diana in a Viv Knowland veiled hat, smiles during a French armistice commemoratiom in Paris. 


September 1990 - Enthusiastic crowds greet Diana with flags waving during her visit to Cullompton in Devon.


My favourite pictures are the ones taken by Mario Testino in 1997 for Vanity Fair, which includes the picture of her on the front cover and the back cover. These turned out to be her last official portraits to be taken before her untimely death the same year.


A beautiful ode to the The People's Princess, gone too soon but forever in our hearts.
