Double pearl earrings - mise en Dior

Pearl earrings which look as good from the back as from the front. 
Double pearl. A large pearl a the back and a smaller one at the front. I think I would have preferred a large pearl at the front, why can't they do that?

Dior Addict-Fluid stick

Dior Addict Fluid Sticks- a lipgloss that looks like a lipstick. Fabulously glossy and with a good depth of 
colour yet with none of the stickiness of a lipgloss-sounds perfect. How do they do it? Well it is water based rather than wax based. It looks and feels fabulous. Long lasting colour.

Amazing range of colours. Which shall I buy? A lovely baby pink?

A  bright spring coral? A wearable nude? So many shades and I want them all! £26 at Dior stockists

New Spring Shades - neutrals

Let's look at neutrals for Spring summer 2014
A soft sand- a warm natural beige. But not beige. Caramel? 
The colour of make up foundation?

Keep it sleek and sophisticated with these elegant neutral shoes.

Matching handbag, prada! 

You might even be lucky to find something in this shade on sale. A great investment. 

Another neutral- Not black, but dove grey!
Wear it with white or cream for a fresh sophisticated look, or liven it up with red. Or pink?

Lovely grey shoes. And red soles of course.

Love this grey top with red bows. It would be easy to custom make one like this, just add red bows to a simple grey top. Grey with red looks good.

How about grey manicure? Yes?
