Natalie Bloom on Mornings

Fear not if you missed Natalie's recent interview with Rebecca Judd on Mornings, because we've got it here! So, make yourself a cup of tea and take a little time out to discover more about your favourite beauty brand and how it got started. And if that's not reason enough to watch this clip - then Bec's superbly sparkly pants certainly are!

Pakayla Biehn

We were left speechless when we first laid eyes on these beautifully detailed oil paintings (yes, they are paintings) by San Francisco-based Pakayla Biehn. These dreamy, whimsical works of art are based on double exposed photographs, which Pakayla accesses through collaborating with a number of photographers.  Is it too early to start a Christmas wish list?

J'adore Paris

Paris is city close to our hearts - especially this time of year with Bastille Day just around the corner.

Natalie often visits the City of Light for inspiration when planning a new colour collection or product launch. With her next trip on the horizon, Natalie says her three Paris travel essentials are a sketch book, Fodor's Paris City Guide App which is loaded with expert restaurant reviews and shopping tips, plus Paris Pratique -  a pocket size booklet of maps which makes it feel like you have a local strolling along the rues and boulevards with you.

If only she would pack us away in her suitcase too!
