Glass, Ribbon and Lipstick


It has been a relaxing long weekend for me.
Although last week was frustrating and demanding in many ways,
I must admit, I do so like the feeling of a "well earned break".

The weather in London has been erratic, shifting from sunny skies to torrential downpours with in the very same hour.

So I bought some ribbon made by East of India:

Made a start on making some clip frame purses:
I will be giving away 5 of these on my blog soon.

Gazed at my new Iittala Mariskoolglass dessert bowl
Available from Skandium


And thanked Hiro with kisses for buying me 2 new lippies.
In shades: #Scarlet #Nude

I had been wanting to buy Scarlet for such a long time.
Unfortunately, each time I passed the D&G counter in Selfridges, the SA would inform me that it is out of stock.

  9. There's something incredibly romantic and thoughtful of Hiro buying you two lipsticks. Your eye-catching clip frame purses should house the lipsticks safely.

    And those wonderful ribbons could realy weave poetry into your blog, especially the one with red 'kisses and hearts'...

    I could detect Boudoir ritual in the 'cowshed'..

    He gave you a Vodca,
    In your new Iittala..
    But you only took a sip,
    Then straighten you slip.
    Nude kisses and scarlet lips..
    All over your place.....
