Watch This!



I'm currently developing a little bit of a watch fetish. Above is just a selection of the great styles I've seen lately. I've never been a watch wearer before (checking the time is for chumps) but I think in the last few years women's options for watches have really improved. Gone are the plain silver and gold links that all look alike, and hello to the chunky chrome men styles and chic, design savvy arm candy!
Ceramic watches, such as the Dior one above, are a great alternative to people like me who wear both gold and silver (and rose gold!). I also love the cute faces that are appearing, making watches into a fun accessory you can change as much as your underwear (I'll assume this is once a day) The Michael Kors, Watch Hunger Stop Collection above is amazing! One of my gal pals was lucky enough to snag one of these beauties and fed 100 hungry mouths in the process. Now a gorgeous accessory that gives back... that's a must have item if you ask me!

Clinique It Girl Post 6


My latest Clinique post is easily my favourite to date. Why you ask? Well there's 2 reasons:
1. I LOVE primers. I think they are the best thing to happen since mascara. And with Clinique's huge range if you can't find the perfect one then you are simply not looking.
2. I got to release my inner nerd and make a comic book! (with the help of my tireless brother in law ha ha ha)

So go and have a read (if you haven't been scared off by my cheesy bathroom selfies) and wander past your nearest Clinique counter!

Shoe Review: Windsor Smith Gillie Heels



Perhaps the most popular shoe amongst bloggers at the moment, the Gillie heels by Windsor Smith, are leading the way in the lace up heels trend. They come in black and red, and I just found out they now come in 'blush' aka nude! Naturally, I bought a pair right away. They're everything you see in the pictures and more... beautiful, sexy, casual yet dressy. They are just gorgeous. They look great with boyfriend jeans and pretty dresses. I haven't found a thing yet that they don't compliment. Experiment with how you lace them up, personally the plain 'around the ankle' suits me (I'm short so I don't want to reduce the length of my legs) but if you're leggy aka. Tuula try lacing them higher, looser, in bows, in creative knots.... go wild!

Now comes the 'but'. CAUTION: these shoes are not for the faint hearted! They are laced onto your lucky feet so don't be surprised when after a night out they leave marks along your legs (the black suede is staining my legs too but naughty me didn't spray them with protector like I was told) Like all stilettos they are not made for downhill runs; hold onto your friends for extra support ladies! My first adventure in these saw me leave a bag at a restaurant and make the same treacherous trek down a hill twice, almost limping by the end. The next time I wore them I wanted to lessen the 'beauty is pain' mantra and I put in some non slip grips; much better!

So yes... they hurt! Maybe I am a baby, but I must not be a big one since I cannot stop wearing them. The nude pair will look fantastic so who knows... maybe my shoe wardrobe will be making room for another pair!
