Bobbi Brown

Mistress of make-up Bobbi Brown has worked her magic on the fairest faces all over the world in the name of beauty, staying at some pretty praiseworthy places on her travels, too.

We cast our eyes Stateside to New York (we’ll be adding more hot New York hotels to our online collection soon) and get some sneaky insider tips from the lady herself on the prime places to go and the all-important packing essentials to get there in style…


As much as we delight at the thought of sneaking away to a gorgeous boutique hotel, there’s one thing here at Smith HQ that really gets our goat: airport regulations.  Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for safety and security, but stuffing our specially selected stock into pokey plastic bags makes us want to weep a wee bit.

Travel Empties by Bobbie Brown, £9.79Well, let us invite you in on a luxury travel-set secret – Bobbi’s got a nifty new range of Travel Empties to solve the problem. The set, which includes a variety of jars and bottles for £9.79, allows style-savvy frequent flyers to fill the empty pots with their perfect pampering possessions.  They even come with darling little labels to record the contents, and fit inside a transparent resealable pouch to keep them in one darned-handy place.  Stylish, organised and unbelievably useful? Yes, please. We’re putting these packing essentials on the Smith wish list.

Other than thirsting over incredibly ingenious travel sets, we’ve also been busy getting Bobbi’s insiders’ guide to SoHo. She picks her favourite fashion boutiques and jewellery joints, points out exquisite eateries, and homes in on the hottest hair and spa places around – all of them within a credit card’s throw of hip Big Apple hang-out Soho House.
