After having last week's Sunday Special's off, we're back with a jam packed one!
Firstly, our favourite online place to visit, ShopPulse, has just had a makeover. For those of you who don't know, ShopPulse is a website that keeps you up to date with all the new pieces that a whole host of online stores have. Whats great about the website is that it's really up to date with information about all the new products hitting it's featured shops. We interviewed the brains behind ShopPulse, Alice, a while back. Anyhoo, the new makeover is great! They've included a section for street style (and everyone loves street style) as well as a 'back in stock' and 'last chance to buy' sections for the featured shops.
Next, we found out about a cool new project that LoveHeals, are doing. LoveHeals is a family run jewellery company that is also very environemntally friendly. The jewellery is all ethically sourced and they are renowned for giving back to charities. For example, for every piece of jewellery sold, 10 trees are planted with greenerethiopia.org.uk, as well as at-risk children being protected with vitaminangels.org.
LoveHeals has just launched a Design Studio. The design interface is revolutionary and very easy to use. It has a drag and drop feature and you can clearly see what you're creating. There is a huge variety of gems, charms and strands to choose from, so you really can have a unique piece of jewellery. It really enables you to be as creative as possible, and while playing around, even I was able to create some gorgeous stuff. (For those who don't know, I am the least creative person ever)!
We've mentioned that the new Westfield is opening up next year, but in the meantime, they are doing some really interesting projects. Studio East is the project and it's aim is to celebrate emerging creative talent. They are looking for the Next Big Thing in fashion, art, product design or the environment. The 2010 winners will be embedded into the the new Westfield, in Stratford. You can make your nominations here.
Finally, here are some style tips from celebrity stylist Zoe Lem, courtesy of Ebay Outlet.
Enjoy your Sunday!!! And for all you Britons: enjoy this beautiful weather!
