Cadbury recently delivered to the Max team delicious samples of their latest creation – Crispello. They didn’t last long (chocolate never does around here) and this week we’re excited to share the joy with our customers with samples in all stores throughout the country.
Crispello’s are individual little pillows of light crispy wafer filled with a luscious fluffy cream centre and covered in Cadbury chocolate. They’re all about not taking life too seriously, letting your hair down and allowing the joy shine in. They’re available in Double Choc (the Max favourite!) and Vanilla Velvet and come in a 30g three piece bar and a 120g bag. The best thing is they are super light and the perfect size when you want something just a little indulgent!
Get instore and try a sample before they’re all gone!

On Monday the SPCA held their annual Cupcake Day! The fundraiser is a Max favourite and like last year we jumped at the chance to get involved as it is all about animals and cupcakes (two of our favourite things!) We donated a voucher for a prize and of course put our chefs hats on over the weekend and made some delicious cupcakes to sell at our Head Office to help raise funds for our fury friends. Good luck to all those cupcake bakers entering in the competitions. We can’t wait to see the winning creations!

We had fun creating this super simple, easy and effective manicure that even the least ambidextrous person will be able to complete!
This cute look only requires one coat of sheer pink polish (and basecoat + topcoat if you so wish) so dries uber quick, perfect for those people who just have to have their nails painted but are short on time. The glitter tip? Easy as pie! Simply dap the brush along the tip of your nail until the desired amount of glitter is achieved (note: this doesn't have to be neat, it all adds to the effect!).

As the seasons change so do our wardrobes, and with the sun shining for fewer and fewer hours each day we must reluctantly put away those summer dresses and swap them out for a warmer alternative.
While the thought of a Winter full of rain, wind and snow may not be all that appealing, we can have fun experimenting with the styling possibilities of Autumn. Mixing and matching your existing summer pieces with winter ones can allow for layered up ensembles featuring cute jackets, coats, scarves and even beanies. All of which can be stripped back if the weather so kindly decides to give you a sneak peek back at the summer that was.
We've put together three of our favourite transeasonal looks that should keep you cosy when the chill hits but cool when the sun shines...

Paris Fashion Week has just passed and with this we have been seeing a plethora of street style snaps from various events around the city... Now, is it just us or do Parisian women seem to be just born with an immaculate sense of style?! Their classic styling is the envy of millions of women around the world...
We found this super cute book recently published called "Paris Street Style" written by Isabelle Thomas and Frederique Veysset. The book compiles interviews, quotes, illustrations and photographs from various sources in the fashion industry and everyday women to create an inspirational fashion bible of classic French style.
If you're looking to pick up some tips from fashionistas on the street we recommend checking out Street Peeper, a beautiful blog dedicated to street style snaps from all over the world.

Baroque style is a hot trend this Winter, having seen it popping up on and off the runway and both here and abroad we are loving this modern take. Our Art of Romance collection features the Baroque style in various printed pants, tops and sequin detailing. This trend is rooted in rich history which lends itself to plush velvet, metallic accents and jewel toned hues. Reminiscent of Kings and Queens from times gone by, we love that this can add that luxurious royal touch to any outfit. Check out a few of our favourite pieces above.
