We love: The net-a-porter sale
The Audit is a devoted fan of online luxury boutique net-a-porter.com, and never more so than when the word sale is thrown into the mix. With new reductions and added items there's a treasure trove of bargains to snap up.
We're not sure about: Elephant dung bags
Going green has long been the new black, but The Big Issue's new campaign, championed by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler, featuring bags made of a combination of elephant dung and banana skin is taking it too far. Not a combination we'd like to carry our shopping in.
We can't wait for: The new Aesop
With its clever mix of botanical ingredients and advanced skincare technology, Aesop makes a regular appearance on beauty wish lists, which is why the launch of a brand- new Soho store this week is causing much excitment.

We're buying: Everything!
It's good news for fans of cult French brand The Kooples, which has opened a store at the McArthurGlen designer outlet where savvy shoppers can get their fix of chic Parisian style at a snip, with up to 60 per cent off the normal retail price.

We're swooning over: David Beckham bodywear for H&M
Prepare to get all hot and bothered at the sight of David Beckham modelling his new bodywear range for H&M. Any interest is solely related to the technical specifications of the collection of course.
