Buy it now: mid-month pick-me-ups

McQueen embellished clutch

Meh, January is dragging is it not? Time for some prettiness in the guise of a mid-month pick-me-up or two. Olympia Le-Tan’s rose candle for Diptyque is a good one to start with, the feelgood rose scent should lift spirits without the need to leave your nest. Ditto, the WHEN face mask. I’ve tried these vitamin-impregnated sheet masks and they’re just the thing for bath-n-book nights.

While spring fashion is hard to get your head around in January, the same can’t be said of beauty. Dior and Guerlain have the prettiest beauty packages for spring dropping already. I’m also crazy about the Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl lipsticks. The shades look bright in the bullet, but on the lip they’re sheer and hydrating, thanks to the magic ingredient, black rose oil (although, sorry Givenchy but there’s nothing ‘vinyl’ about this!).

In other beauty news, the much hyped Clinique Sweet Pots have finally launched and Tom Ford has a lush-looking (and v spendy) Purifying Cleansing Oil which God knows I could do with right now.

Fashion wise, I love Vetements’ long prairie dress, to wear over jeans and cuban-heel boots. And McQueen’s embellished skull clutch (like Bionda Castana’s blush-pink heels) is just something you want to cuddle up to and stroke like a pet, it’s a thing of utter, decadent beauty…
