winter saviours

just reflecting on my winter skin treats: Malin&Goetz replenishing face cream – does exactly what it says, my skin has been so dry over the past month, also great for a make-up base. And an old favourite – the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, dabbed on to any blemish, drastically reduces in no time.

in search of the perfect stripe…

i have always always loved stripes, on women, on men , on dogs. and i find myself craving one for spring. for me it has to be classic – blue and white hoops, to the elbow or wrist with a neck line not too high.

TIP

i’ve just discovered that oatmeal (or fine oats) works really well as a cheap and effective suede cleaner. just rub on with your fingers. it will leave some white residue which you then brush off.
i haven’t tried the oatmeal on darker suedes but i certainly think it does wonders on lighter colours like my Maje boots which were in desperate need of a clean.

thankful

happy belated thanksgiving! Spotted this in a little bakery in orange county the day before thanksgiving – a turkey made from profiteroles. I would have bought it had it not been for my impending 9 hour flight home that evening. Even though I was back in London for thanksgiving we still celebrated with turkey meatballs and yams roasted with marshmallows in Hackney. So good. More pics and news from my American travels to follow.
