Starts with Inspiration: 2013 American Music Awards

Holiday party season is around the corner, and if you're like me and still looking for inspiration for what to wear this year, look no further. Tonight's red carpet for the American Music Awards offered some serious food for thought. Clearly, there was a clear lean towards bling, metal and shiny. Perfect for the red carpet and a holiday shindig, right?

Wish list: Saint Laurent Chyc Clutch

My beloved black clutch (last seen here) has finally seen its end. After many years of devoted use, the clasp has fallen off. As such, the search for a timeless go-to piece is on. 

Top of the list is this Saint Laurent Chyc Clutch. It is unequivocally classic Saint Laurent and will never go out of style. With holiday party season fast approaching, it's also the perfect accessory to tote all your event-going essentials. Have I convinced you yet? Get yours here.

Starts with a fresh glow: Diorskin Nude BB Creme

My last post about make-up was written in the late Spring, as temperatures were rising and the air much less dry. Now with Winter well on its way, I've had to change my face regimen slightly to avoid dryness while still faking a fresh summer glow. 

Enter Diorskin Nude BB Creme. After reading rave reviews about this product I decided to give it a try. I must say, after only a few uses, I'm already hooked. A little goes a long way with this. A few dots blended onto the face (I wear it on top of a bit of moisturiser) imparts a subtle rosy glow while erasing redness. Add a swipe of bronzer, and I can barely tell it's not sandal season.
