Sweet tooth lovers out there embrace yourselves as we introduce you to one very fine confectionery brand that will make you go “Ooh La La” – and is so appropriately named “Ooh La La Artisan Confectionery too. Inspired by her passion for food and for France, the stunning Karen Schneid-Lieberman started this delicious business in 2009, not in France, but in Johannesburg! So what exactly caught our lips about this one? Other than the fact that our palettes were treated to these scrumptious gourmets on her latest trip to Paris, we just couldn’t get enough of her collection of pure haute couture confectionary!

Waiter! Why is there a Karl Lagerfeld in my tea?

Ok, this has got to be one of the quirkiest and fabulously original goodies that recently came my way…. ‘Tea Party’ tea bags that depict icons we love, admire or just wish we could ever have tea with….

Well wish no more because now you can have Karl Lagerfeld comfortably soaking in your very own cuppa tea from the Prêt-à-porTea series…

Or Maradona swirling around with your milk and suger from the Soccer Legends series…..or get this, you can even sip with the nativity scene as the 3 wise men check you out…

Crazy Bands Craze!

August 19, 2010
A silicone animal-shaped bracelet that looks like a sour-worm candy is apparently like the next big accessory to wear around the wrist! Spotted on my fashionista friend nestled next to her glam Toy Watch and a Vanessa Tugendahft diamond bracelet was one of them sour-worm candies….. I casually inquired and she said ‘cherie, these are like THE bracelets to be wearing’ 
Officially called Crazy Bands – I was now intrigued…..
These silicone bracelets are actually collector toys for kids and come in different shapes: animals (such as Crazy Frogs and a whole range of Crazy Wildlife), as well as Crazy Beach (yes, bracelets in the shape of a palm-tree and a pair of sunglasses), Crazy Music (you guessed it, a bracelet in the form of an electric guitar and even a microphone) My favorite has got to be Crazy Posh with silicone bracelets in the form of a poodle, lipstick and knee-high boots)
While this Crazy craze has still to hit the wrists (and fingers in the form of silicone crazy shaped rings) of Parisians, I’m sure it won’t be long before the French will probably spruce it up with a diamond or two…
