Recently I had chance to visit the Lalique's Mayfair, London store during their press day. And I am really impressed with their precision of manufacturing crystal and keeping their heritage. Most of the designs of the Lalique is quite traditional and I may say, conservative. However, the collection is not limited with the conservative design only, you have the chance to experience the Bentley's Flying B and very stylish rings. Definitely there is something in Lalique for different tastes.

Rolls Royce Ghost received a facelift and became Ghost II. I never thought the Rolls Royce Ghost approached to facelift time but time passes very quickly. And Rolls Royce revised the Ghost with minor revision and updated. Now Ghost II features touch pad for using the entertainment system, navigation, phone and other tools. Headlights are now LED, more dynamic driving experience, lots of new colours and more personalisation. Also, GPS guided automatic transmission for bette efficiency and smoother riding comfort.
Ghost II is powered by a V12 engine with 570 HP and 780 Nm of torque. V12 engine is coupled with a 8-speed automatic gearbox. And Ghost II needs 4.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the top speed is 250 km/h.

Miss Birmingham 2013, Rachael Barker. I met her during the Birmingham International Fashion Week. Probably, you might be thinking Rachael is a model, however that’s not the truth and she is not stuck with the ‘world peace’ phrase. Why? Rachael holds a psychology undergraduate degree from University of Birmingham and a master degree on health psychology from Coventry University. And she is planning to apply for a PhD, which is technically a torture :)
Apparently, Rachael dramatically changed the idea of beauty title, Miss. During the Birmingham International Fashion Week, I had opportunity to talk with Rachael and listened her speeches, she is definitely very clever and beautiful. And don’t be surprised if you see her name as a lecture in few years time :)
