Sunday Specials: 18/07/2010

Firstly, Sherin is doing something very exciting in October:

I'm sure you've heard me talk about my friend, Marilena and I know that I've briefly mentioned a skydiving event that the charity she works for is doing. The charity is called The Winch, and they aim to get kids off the streets, and doing more creative activities.

I don't know how it happened, but Marilena has persuaded me to skydive for the charity in October!!! I've always wanted to go skydiving, so what better reason than to go for charity?!?! I'm both nervous and excited at the same time. Anyway, now for the cheeky part: I've just started fundraising and would really appreciate it if any of you would sponsor me, even just a pound. You can see my page here. If not, no worries: I also need words on encouragement!!

Bulgari have a fabulous new bag, which pays tribute to Hollywood legend and style icon, Isabella Rossellini.

Rossellini has always been a fan of Bulgari jewellery and now the two have come together to produce a truely elegant bag.

The bag is contemporary and a perfect accessory that reinterprets the bags of the great divas of yester-year. The bag has a special central twist lock, which comes in enamel and hard stones.
The bag is natual and graceful, like Rossellini herself and comes in several varieties, each a different facet of Rossellini. You can get more information on the different bags here.

Vitamin water have launched a new pink flavour to their 'i-focus' range. The new flavour is kiwi and strawberry flavour (mmmm) and is jam-packed with vitamins to keep you healthy and energised. In honour of this, there is a treasure hunt all over the UK over the next 2 weeks, where you can win an iPad!!!!

A bottle of the new flavour will be hidden in a different UK city everyday for the next 2 weeks, and there are 3 iPads up for grabs.
All you have to do is follow them on Twitter to see where they're at with their foursquare check-ins. More information can be found here.

I was sent a little goody bag filled with many little pink wonders and the water itself. I had landed from my holiday the afternoon before and was out the night before (not clever, I know), so was in a bit of a state the next morning. The water definitely lifted me up and gave me a bit of a boost, as well as being completely amazing to drink. I'm definitely hooked on this drink now. Not only is it healthy, it is also delicious: what more could you want??

As you may know, London Fashion Week is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz. They have recently started up a blog and it looks great so far. The Sunday Times writer, Katherine Ormerod, will write for the blog and Liberty London Girl will be writing their tweets.

We also got to look at the Jovonnista AW10 collection, and it's so chic, feminine and effortlessly cool. There are adorable playsuits and gorgeous floral dresses, as well as some magnificant capes, and it definitely evokes images of a modern day Audrey Hepburn. Fans of the line already include Pixie Lott. You'll be able to buy it straight from Topshop and from the Jovonna website.
Here are our favourites from the lookbook:

Also, I know a lot of you have been asking about exchanging links and I apologise for not getting back to you. I'm aiming to go through and re-organise our 'Blogs We Love' section. We'll, obviously, be keeping all the blogs we really love, but let us know if you want to exchange links and we'll add you. 

Have a great Sunday. What are you all upto today? Sherin's at Lovebox Festival today, so hopefully the weather stays good.
