Origins Smarty Plants

I wasn't sure anything could replace my beloved Vitazing but I bought the Origins CC cream at the weekend after my friend said it was brilliant. I must say she is right, it's fabulous. It's miles better than the Clinique one which I do like but it is a bit drying and you have to work quite hard to make it look good. The Origins one simply glides on, blends easily, smells lovely and lasts all day. I adore Vitazing and will always have it in my make-up bag but this is good for those days where you need a bit more help than Vitazing can provide.

Walking into the Origins shop I was overwhelmed with love for the brand. Their products are so good and smell so delicious. I've not looked at them closely for ages. I very much recommend this.

Clinique Cheek Pop

I had a yearning for a powder blusher after years of using a cream one. I have no idea why. I bought this Cheek Pop from Clinique and I am very happy with it. It's subtle, easy to apply and the packaging is so pretty. In comes in four colours and I got Peach Pop. Recommended.

Joan Collins has a beauty range

There are few people I adore quite as much as Joanie. Ignore her politics for a moment and just focus on this.

Nobody does glamour like Joan.

I'm not sure anyone wears fur hats quite as well as her either. And now, unbelievable news. Wondrous news. She has launched a beauty range.

It's shamelessly gold and epic. It's how to look like Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter all packaged up. And who doesn't want to look like Alexis?

She's always been my style icon. Check out the nail varnish and lipsticks especially.

Yes, they actually say Joan Collins on them. She knows what her minions want. Bow down to Queen Joan. I am going to have to buy a nail varnish, the bottle is a work of art. I've no idea when they go on sale and who is stocking it but all I can say is that it had better be in Sephora.

Chanel No 5

This is a perfume you wait for. I have always liked it but never felt it was right for me however the other day I was in Sephora (naturally) looking for a perfume to spray on after work and before I went for cocktails. The choice is overwhelming and I sniffed quite a few but none were working for me. Time was ticking and I was going to be late so I went for the classic. I am so glad I did because I love it. Classics are classics for a reason and this is simply a beautiful scent.

Today I decided to treat myself since it was Monday and I've just had a pay day and well, damn it, I wanted it. So back to Sephora I went (a hardship I know) and I picked up a little bottle (the exact one above in fact). I am now wafting around in a cloud of Chanel No 5 and feeling super classy. It's hard to feel anything but fabulous when you are wearing Chanel. It's not a perfume for when you are 21, it's one to turn to as you get older and begin to realise that your grandmother was actually a bit of a style icon.
