Not usually one to jump on the bandwagon of raving about some hotshot brand or designer bringing something new to our attention because to be honest, I don't think they need any help from the blogging community to advertise or promote their creations.

Here comes my big fat however.....THIS was just too good to be true. Of course I'm sure that everyone in the world knows about this already, so let me say that this post is just plain ole' me doing a massive "Errr ma God....I think this is literally the best thing that has ever happened in the history of the world, EVER"

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful in your entire life?


This my dears, is nothing short of the Holy Grail. The very meaning of a woman's life, well OK, my life. Christian Louboutin has designed THE Cinderella shoe commissioned by Disney itself to celebrate the re-release of the film on blu-ray this autumn. 

First of all, as a self confessed Disney loving girl, the very idea of someone designing a real-life glass slipper is almost too much, but to know that the red-bottom loving Louboutin himself was doing it.....well, thank you so much.

The only down-side? The wily wizard has only created twenty pairs. Twenty. Did you hear my voice crack and my heart simultaneously break? The worst part is that they're not even available to buy. Well Loubi, what was the flippin' point?

Le sigh. At least he brought the magic back into my life and I can simply stare at them in amazed wonderment. And I suppose I could always cheer myself up with a little trip to Harrods next month, who are apparently running with the Disney Princess theme as part of their Christmas campaign this year. I suppose it'll have to do!

For the risk of becoming an old woman long before I'm due, I generally tend to avoid the tempting lure of Cath Kidston stores. Look, I KNOW the stuff is awesome, I KNOW every girl wishes her house was full of the floral delights and quintessentially British designs of this wonderful brand, but seriously, I'm gonna save it until I'm forty, living alone and probably a crazy cat lady. I fully embrace the day. Until then, I am fully satisfied with my one and only purchase from my dear Cath, in the form of £8 worth of hand cream.


Cath Kidston Wild Rose Hand Cream is more than money well spent for me. Despite the fact that it last for actual ever, it has a rather reminiscent vibe to it.
A few years ago, a work colleague bought this for me as my Secret Santa. I used it like there was no tomorrow, now whenever I smell it all I can think of is the happy times I had over the Christmas of 2010.

Having possibly the most stressful week, like, ever. My friends are probably sick to the back teeth of me whining about next door neighbours crying baby, but seriously.....FOUR HOURS A NIGHT, people. That, is precisely the number of hours the baby cries, followed by the number of hours that I can sleep.

With this in mind, my face tends to be more than or equal to pretty much haggered these days. Decided it was definitely time to top up my foundation supplies, and practically ran to Fenwick yesterday in a state of panic and confusion (four hours people).


Et Voila! My best friend in the whole wide world ever. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Pale Almond, literally the best thing in the world since time began. This is like the industrial, doll face make up that transforms your skin from that of bletchy teenager into "I AM, actually, a twenty-(cough)-five year old woman". At £27.50 rrp, I'd say it lasts me an average of six to eight months. You do the maths.

 
 
 
 
And, because sometimes God does love me, when I purchased this baby, Estee Lauder decided to give me this; something I shall now describe as a double ended magic wand of wonderment...it's mascara.....AND concealor. A mini sample of Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara on one end and Double Wear Stay in Place Concealor on the other. Oh hey bag-eyes......BUBYE!!
