NEW SAMPLES: CRU Kafe Light Roast

Girl Meets Dress love finding new products and we just know you are going to love our newest  find. Introducing CRU Kafe - a finer coffee in a Kinder Capsule and the Premium alternative to Nespresso.

CRU was created by four coffee enthused friends – Bodil, Colin, John and Matt with the desire to give people the chance to make great coffee at the press of a button – ethical, organic and easy to make. The capsules on the market didn’t tick their boxes, so they decided to make their own. CRU capsules are compatible with 99% of all machines on the market. CRU coffee is packaged in a recyclable pod that can be thrown out with your regular recycling.

They source the best beans in town and cultivate them from bean to cup to ensure only the finest tasting, highest quality coffee is produced. With four different blends: Light Roast, Dark Roast, Intense and DecafCru have everything sorted!

From CRU’s four flavours, Girl Meets Dress are happy to announce that starting this week you can get your very own sample of CRU Light Roast.

CRU Light Roast (strength 7) is a delicate blend of 100% Arabica beans with hints of biscuit and caramel. It is perfect if you prefer a sweeter and finer taste, featuring three beans: Ethiopian 60%, Peruvian 30% and Indian 30%.

CRU Dark Roast (strength 9) is a stronger blend for those who like a rich flavour. Using only the best quality and high altitude Arabica beans from Brazil, Peru and Ethiopia. These beans are roasted darker to deliver a robust flavor that delivers  an intense chocolate, fruity & full bodied coffee.

CRU Intense (strength 12)  is a intense dark roast espresso, full bodied and powerful in flavour. It packs a real punch and is a must for you who prefer a darker and intense flavour!  Using a prized Tanzania Robusta bean special for its quality and unique organic certification (99% are not organic) the blend is balanced by the sweet and rich Indonesian Sumatra.

CRU Decaf (strength 5) is delicate and sweet in the cup. The bean has a well-rounded taste and best of all is that it  will not keep you up all night. It is well-balanced and accessible providing the perfect replacement for a low caffine brew.

Guest Style @GirlMeetsDress – Natalie Robinson

blogger Guest Style @GirlMeetsDress   Natalie Robinson

We are continuing with our new blog series of Stylists having their say on the @GirlMeetsDress blog, Every few days we will invite a stylist to share their style picks with us. They will answering a few of our fashion Q&As as well as  picking their 6 favourite items from Girl Meets Dress…We hope you enjoy!

Today we’re picking the mind of  Natalie Robinson. Natalie is a fashion consultant and  founder of Style Icon, She  has collaborated on projects with big names such as  London Fashion Weekend and the Clothes Show Live to name a few.  Natalie also teaches an ‘Introduction to Personal Styling’ course at the Fashion Retail Academy in Central London and has been sponsored by British Airways to be a keynote speaker at their Office*exhibition. Natalie’s 15 years of experience, countless celebrity connections and solid work ethic have propelled her career into the success it is today.

Natalie answered a few of our questions:

- How would you describe your style?
Classic with a contemporary twist! I love mixing classic and vintage pieces! I like to play with style as opposed to follow trends! I am an interpreter of fashion!

- What are your fashion loves, and your hates?
Fashion loves – hats, and other accessories like broaches, necklaces, funky gloves and I love faux fur which ‘glams up’ an outfit. I hate trying too hard with fashion i.e. dressing head to toe in the same designer or wearing a piece just because it’s the latest trend. I have to love the designer but most importantly the fit of a particular piece and how it compliments the rest of what I am wearing.

- What’s the most loved item in your wardrobe?
My Biba Hat. I always receive compliments when I wear it!

- What advice would you have for anyone wanting to get into styling?
Love what you do!! Pay particular attention to detail! I run a 3 day styling course at The Fashion Retail Academy in Central London! You need a sense of individual style to appreciate how to style others!

- Where do you get your inspiration from?
Watching old movies, music videos and street style as I often pay attention to how other people dress which gives me more ideas for styling.

- Name one item no stylist should be without?
Needle & Thread. You always need to make minor alterations!!

- What is your favourite SS14 trend?
Would have to be tartan in the form of accessories! Also, loving the phantom Celine bag in more summery colours!!

 

Here are some of Natalie’s picks from GirlMeetsDress.com
