IKEA's undercover Kitchen Squad!

I am a HUGE fan of Ikea, and I think this new marketing approach is brilliant!
Home furnishing GIANT Ikea are about to unveil an innovative new marketing campaign to promote its extensive kitchen offering. This will first air tomorrow night during the Late Late. It will be the first reality home makeover commercial to be aired on Irish television.

The concept is built around the theme of IKEAs Kitchen Squad, a group of designers, planners etc selected for their kitchen expertise by IKEA for this three part reality TV commercial. What I think is very cool, is that the Kitchen Squad are all real life IKEA workers, who went through and audition process to find the best of the best in their field.

The commercial is made up of 3 families who return home to find their old run down kitchen missing, and replaced with ... you guessed it, a brand new IKEA kitchen by 'The Kitchen Squad'. Participants were all nominated by friends or family member and have no idea, so all the reactions are real.

Make sure and tune in tomorrow night during the Late Late, and also the adverts will run up until May, on RTE 1, RTE 2, TG4 and TV3. Have a little look at the teaser below.

Emilio Pucci

I bought this Emilio Pucci gold jacket on my recent trip to NYC... I just love it, it even looks great over plain white vest and jeans.





Will you be embracing Clogs?!

So dare I say it, clogs, yes clogs are back.. I never thought Id say this but I actually do think I like the Chanel ones.

Here are some examples from Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

A Personal Favourite




A personal favourite of mine this year is Burberry. My fiance got me a cream Burberry Mac from Brown Thomas for Christmas, and I just love it. Its so versatile, I would definitely recommend one as a wardrobe staple. I also love that they have Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame as the face of the brand, I feel it was needed to make the brand appealing to a younger generation.

Denim Spring/Summer 2010




Denim is here in a big way for Spring/Summer 2010. Above we have some examples from Balmain, Banana Republic, Alexa Chung for Pepe Jeans and a denim Herve Leger dress.
