Sunday January 20 2013.


Sitting in a snowglobe, armed with a pot of tea writing blog posts is sheer Sunday bliss.  I have some absolute gems to share with you in the coming weeks so peppering them with my thoughts is hardly a chore this weekend.  I even found the time to make a snowgirl…

The New Year did not start off particularly well (we had a car crash on New Year’s day which left me with a lumpy addition to my face and minus a car, sob!) but I’m determined to make 2013 a good year.  Did you make any resolutions?  Rather than resolutions I drew up a To Do List of mostly ‘out with the old and in with the new’ for my house, wardrobe and Bijou.

Having already tackled my make up box, throwing out all the old crushed up shadows, dried up varnishes and well past their sell by date mascaras it is time for some new!  The Lancome x Alber Elbaz limited edition make-up range is going straight to the top of that list.  “We are extremely proud and happy that he is set to channel his universe into the world of make-up for the very first time” Youcef Nabi, President of Lancôme International, told WWD.  In typical quirky Elbaz fashion, the announcement came via a teaser video on the Lancome YouTube channel.

We’ve got a bit of a wait on our hands though girls as the Lancome x Alber Elbaz range won’t hit our shops until June.
