Jewellery – whether it’s a beloved ring, a lavish necklace, or a fierce bracelet – often looks and feels so good, it can be tempting to wear them all the time! Especially with sentimental pieces like engagement or wedding rings that you’ll never want to take off. So it’s important (and not to mention hygienic) to keep your precious jewellery clean, but how?When it comes to cleaning jewellery of all sorts, you can never go wrong with a mild soap and soft, cotton cloth. But each metal has its own unique characteristics that respond well to different cleaning methods to bring out their best features!

4 Fashion Trends We Spotted from the Hugo Runway Show

FLORENCE, ITALY - JUNE 13:  Models walk the runway at the Hugo SS18 show during 92. Pitti Immagine Uomo on June 13, 2017 in Florence, Italy.  (Photo by Pietro D'aprano/Getty Images)

Straight out of Florence comes the Hugo Hugo Boss spring/summer 2018 fashion show and with it a bevy of fashion trends you can expect to dominate the fashion set. That’s just how runway works—designers send the best of their latest best down the catwalk and set the tone for what’s to come. In the case of Hugo, the overall tone is “relaxed.” We’re seeing a lot of loose, breezy, and stripped-back silhouettes—but that’s not all Hugo has in mind for the future of fashion. Lucky for you, we’ve studied their latest show and we’ve got the trend report to prove it.

Scroll through to see the four fashion trends we’re sure to dominate fashion, straight off the Hugo spring/summer 2018 runway.

Here's what the best dressed at LFWM had to say about the election

Tension was in the air last week with the UK’s general election occurring the day before LFWM was set to start. So we roamed the streets to ask London’s brightest prospects about their thoughts on the election results. Here’s what they had to say:

The New Milk Makeup Glitter Stick Gives Back to the LGBTQ+ Community

MilkMakeup-TheCenter-GlitterStick-01-Stevie+Jeffrey+Merlot
After days of teasing us with videos of people vogueing on Instagram, Milk Makeup finally announced its new mystery product. To celebrate Pride month, the brand is dropping its Milk Makeup Glitter Stick today. The limited edition addition to the inclusive beauty brand's popular line of sticks was made in partnership with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (The Center) in New York City. The Glitter Stick just landed on my desk, and I'm already obsessed. Of course, it's packed with glitter in every single color of the rainbow. However, the hues aren't bold or bright. Instead, they have more of an iridescent, pastel vibe. It's like Milk Makeup's popular Holographic Stick went to a disco and came back...

Balenciaga Wants to Sell You Eye Masks and Coffee Mugs

061517-balenciaga-colette-04

Balenciaga is may be known for high-end designs that range from the luxe to the extravagant and kooky but the brand does offer accessories that more accessible.

The fashion house is slated to take over the Colette store in Paris as a guest host this summer, and in celebration, the brand is launching a line of unexpected novelty items.

Instead of releasing jewelry or beauty products, Balenciaga has opted to create eponymous eye masks and coffee mugs, WWD reports.

Sofia Coppola’s Colour Palettes

366832
To watch a Sofia Coppola film is to be transported to an alternate universe, defined by her fondness for soft, natural lighting, meandering, drawn-out shots, and, most notably of all, sumptuous pastel hues. But while there’s no denying that her films look good enough to eat, there’s more to the American director’s distinct aesthetic than first meets the eye, her films’ visual codes serving to reflect the emotional journeys of her protagonists. As video essayist Jacob T. Swinney points out, “Coppola’s atmosphere seems to mirror the inner workings of her characters. [She] crafts these dreamscapes to show us not only who her characters are, but who they want to be.” Next week marks the UK release of her anticipated sixth...
