Back to basics.

It's been quite a year for Collectioneight! Lots of travel, growth and of course..... inspiration. 

I thought long and hard of what to post first after almost a year hiatus and the inclination was to show you what I'm actually buying for myself! After travelling so much I really wanted to grab a few new essentials to update my wardrobe basics. I love sharing my must haves so here's what I've been snapping up:

A NEW SIGNATURE SCENT

When one of my fav perfumes was discontinued I was on an immediate hunt for a sexy, new evening scent. Goodbye Tom Ford.... hello Serge Lutens. This is next level for sultry.
