Man In The Mirror

Seriously obsessing over this. I have been thinking about it all day!  I think I'm going to have to cough up the outrageous price for this little guy just so I can laugh every time I look in the mirror.  But isn't that what life is all about? dd

Rosie Lee

This Saturday I put on a Thanksgiving feast for my family here in London.  It is my absolute favorite holiday of the year!  It's all about the family and the food.  Everyone gathers round the table, shares their stories over the past year and feasts on a enormous amount of food.  Then to only be further stuffed with pumpkin pie and whipped cream.  What is not to love?

While picking up the pumpkin pies at Whole Foods last Friday night, I picked up a treat for myself as well.  I can't go to Whole Foods without walking away with a butter LONDON nail varnish.  They are just too good and always catch my eye on the way out.  My latest procurement was Rosie Lee.  A sweet and playful glitter rose colored varnish.  A few coats are certainly needed, but the outcome is fun and really grabs attention! 

butter LONDON is an amazing brand.  With a motto of Fashion and Rock and Roll, they already get my vote.  But aside from the wild lifestyle these beauty geniuses lead, butter LONDON is one of the only brands that I can think of that still brings all the style and on trend colors that is expected of a luxury nail varnish brand but also is free of all nasties like Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP or Parabens in their '3 Free' collection.  They are the first brand to do so in United States.  Good on them!  And above all else, they top all of their applicators with a crowned raven. So Fashion and Rock and Roll! dd

Diddy Driver

I'm not a frou frou kind of person, but these little puppies are seriously too cute. He's driving a monster truck!  I absolutely want one.  Now.  dd

Wrap it up.

I popped into TK Maxx today.  It is one of my favorite places to browse and wander around.  Not to mention that I can usually afford most things I find.  Today I came away with this warm and cosy cashmere scarf.  I wouldn't say it's Winter just yet, but there is certainly a bit of a chill in the air lately.  

So wrap up warm, because Winter is on it's way soon! dd

Floor Length Florals

I found this skirt on one of those days when you're looking for something specific but instead you find something you don't need but just have to have.  This skirt is amazing on!  It cinches your waist right in and actually keeps your legs warm from the cold. It's my favorite piece for the cold months to come.  To show a bit of skin I've paired it with a cropped corset. The lace brings a nice contrast to the flowers, but not over powering. Then to top it off I like the sequin cardigan.  It brings a bit of fun and brightens up the whole outfit.  dd

Skirt: Kenzo
Cardigan: Topshop
Corset: Riess

Winter Wonders

With Winter surely on it's way now, it's time to get your skin care routine in check.  Whether you need to clean the summer scalelies to get your glow back or boost the skin with a surge of moisture.  This past month I have been prepping my skin with a few products that I think you need to know about.

To start, I have been using Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque.  It's actually made with clay from the Amazon River.  Who knew a river bed could be so purifying!  The masque goes on smooth and has an instant calming and soothing presence on the skin.  After applying once a week for the past month I can see that my skin's luminance has been restored and my pores are more refined.  Exactly what the doctor ordered!

After cleansing and using the Kiehl's masque I have been moisturising with Chanel Hydramax + Active Nutrition.  I have been struggling to find a balanced moisturiser for my skin in the past.  My skin was either left too dry or really oily.  I'm so happy to have found that perfect balance with Chanel Hydramax.  Ask for a sample at your closest Chanel counter!

And of course there is nothing like staying healthy and hydrated from the inside.  A daily multi vitamin and plenty of water will keep your skin glowing all season.  dd

The Winter is finally falling upon us here in London and that means it's time to get the Winter wardrobe out and in force.  The one thing that I needed to invest in this season was the knee high boot.  And the burgundy/merlot colour that is dominating the trends this season is so alluring that I just had to have these lovelies.  The heel stacks up just under 4 inches and they are made of a soft leather that is sturdy enough to stand tall all day.  I have been pairing them with a vintage suede calf length skirt lately, but I am thinking of putting them over some tights with a mini skirt this weekend.  dd
