LFW Skin Saviour!

There is a catch to being invited to all these fashion shows you know! We're calling it 'fashacne', a skin condition brought on by all of those early morning shows, late-night parties,  (oh and yes, the 'Lauderee macaroon' diet that we seem to be living on at the 'mo).  Thankfully we've found a solution! Well a quick fix anyway. Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser is a skin genius! A dab and a smear later and spots, dark circles (and that grey complexion tinge) are gone! You don't even need a mirror to apply it. Genius!

We find that GWP's (that's marketing lingo for gift-with-purchase items) are always a tad naff, but this shopper (that comes free with a 50ml bottle of DKNY's Be Delicious Scent from 23rd September) goes against that grain. Why? Pop-art-esque with a subtle-but-seen designer-label tag, it will surely score high in the style stakes!

Following in the footsteps of Lady Ga Ga (and Julia Roberts!?!) Drew has black-tipped her tresses. It's attention-grabbing yes, but whether it's a style we'll be trying ourselves, time will tell! 

Flats are back!

Can we just say how much we're loving the flats revival (and so are our chiropractors). We keep clocking these super-comfy Newbark shoes (above) on everyone including Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley and Kate Moss. We'd wear them with cropped skinny jeans and a Brteon top for post-Fashion Week downtime.

We've also got our eyes on Christian Louboutin's studded slippers - just need to find an affordable version. Au revoir platform skyscrapers!

Spotted at Urban Outfitters. Cute packaging, fruit-scented, £5 - what's not to love?

We were lucky enough to meet the gorgeous Cheryl Cole yesterday! A few select journo's (ahem, that's us!) were invited to quizz her about her new role as Ms Beauty Queen (aka the new face of L'Oreal Paris). After a natter over cupcakes (yes, she did eat one) and tea, she let us into a sneaky peak inside her make-up bag. And inside we spotted her new must-have new foundation buy:

"This is a recent obsession," she said. "I love the new applicator. Oh my god, I put it on in the car the other day when I was running late, and I thought let me just try that - it was on within two seconds. Why has no one ever made this before? I should’ve thought of it 'cos my dad is a painter and decorator. It gives very even coverage. I’m well impressed with that one."

Aaaah, don't you just love 'er!

Bella Freud's cult beatnik knits are just the thing for trans-seasonal September. We love these new shots by Susie Bick complete with pop-coloured wigs.

File under "why didn't we think of this"

We have a problem. We love vintage suitcases but we don't know what to do with them. Here's an idea... make them into coffee tables! We love all the re-use/re-love ideas on this site - don't you?

If you go down to Selfridges today...

You simply must head up to the third floor. Not only have they unveiled their new 3rd Central department housing Marc by Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel but how fun is this giant surrealist coat hanger?!

Fabulosity Friday

Who else is loving the new Accessorize campaign? We can't get enough of those rings, scarves and bags...

On our radar - the bracelet that thinks it's a watch

Who wears a watch these days? No-one, right? Wrong! We like the witticism of these silly but stylish accessories - what do you think?
