My lively make up palette for the forthcoming season. Daring, I know. The Matte Eyes is my favourite, easily dressed up 'vampy' with a dark lipstick and eyeliner or down 'hippie' with a lipstick lighter than this shade and not much more.
Matte Eyes in Afternoon Tea, £6.50. Crayon in Equinox and Zephyr, £8.50. Eyeshadow Mousse in Glint, £8.
I was after a a new watch but due to my fussy ways, I couldn't find the perfect one; black croc leather, medium sized face, silver trimmings. So I settled for this mens, rubber one with black trimmings. Naturally.
Here is the most expensive nail varnish you will ever lay your little eyes on. It's name? Gold Rush. It's credentials? 1,118 diamonds and a gold leaf like appearance. It's price? £83,000.

Illamasqua have a luxurious, adventurous and predominantly sultry range of make up and accessories. They currently have 44 shades of lipstick, 52 shades of nail polishes and an endless range of other goodies. Best of all? Their bespoke nail quills. A. Maz. Ing.
I haven't had my nails done for a while and my latest attempt at creating a galactic masterpiece could have turned out better but it is wearable. I did two coats of Nails in Lead, one of Gypsy Night and one of Sunset.
The next fad in store for my talons is to be either a good old black cherry claw not dissimilar from Rihanna's, a bit of heavy metal or some Minx in one of their newest shell designs. Probably the latter. Save the claws for the birthday and ignore the thoroughly impractical one.
However, I have saved my best til last. I love everything about Maria Nilsdotter, from the collection to the website, lookbook, blog, and to an extent the prices. Her philosophy; 'I create my jewellery starting from a story, a fantasy or an emotion. My wish is to create wearable art with playful touch. The jewellery is characterized by symbolic figures with unexpected twists and contrasts. All my work is handmade of precious metals, stones and pearls to create timeless and beautiful jewellery'.
I love it when I come across pieces as versatile as this eighteen carat gold plated brass double knuckle duster ring in the form of a wave by Bex Rox. Whether it's with some jersey and ripped denim or an LBD and killer heels, the simple crescent shaped detail effortlessly adds style.
This awe-inspiring collection, named "Rendez-vous", has been described as "Marlene Dietrich-meets-punk" by Bruno Frisoni, Roger Vivier's artistic director. There are twenty pieces per style, each costing between £1,500 and £6,000.
The amazing shoes exhibit an assortment of textures and personalities. These include lizard, crocodile and sting-ray for their ankle boots, 'bristling with straps and warrior-style ankle-cuffs'. The shoes with a more feminine feel to them were 'draped with glistening, golden chain-mail, like a mini coat-of-armour around the foot'.
