I don't know about you but ever since I've learned that the bottom of a handbag has more bacteria than a toilet seat I have not been setting my bag down on the floor. It's hard not to put your bag on the floor when say you're at a cafe and there's no room around you...which is why this little gadget is so handy!!

Our very close friend moved into her first place this weekend. Whilst looking for a housewarming present, I came across the http://www.lumas.com/ art website. It features many artists who I'm sure most of us haven't come across. Much of the art is very cool, contemporary and affordable:
'Heroes', Collagen, Marek Haiduk
'Marseille Freitag III', 2. Von Montag - Sonntag, Richoh Gerbl
'Stacks', Archive, Penelope Davis
The Phi Spring/Summer 2010 RTW has all the ingredients from a signature Andreas Melbostad design recipe. Body con dressing, buckles, bandages and corsets in all the unusual yet interesting places. Refreshingly executed in a neutral black and white collection, it makes for a sell-out collection...

Those of you who know me know that I have very sensitive skin that's dry on the surface. Because of this, my skin usually feels a little tight, and my makeup doesn't sit well. I've tried a gazillion products, some end up being too greasy, some don't feel like they're penetrating into my skin, some don't moisturize enough...etc...Last November I came across Bobbi Browns 'Intensive Skin Supplement', and it's been my skin warrior throughout the Winter. My skin feels so soft and healthy, and many friends have commented that it looks clear, fresh, and radiant. I can't recommend this product enough. All of you girls and boys who have dryish skin, try out a sample, Bobbi Brown is available in most department stores across the UK and US, and in Canada it's available at Holt Renfrew. I usually squirt a drop on my hand when I'm about to apply moisturizer, it works really well for me like that.
