I had a meeting in London yesterday so when I had finished I headed straight to the Clinique counter to try their new Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes. For once minus the kids, I had some time on my hands so when the sales assistant offered to try the product out on me, I thought why not! If possible it's always advisable to try before you buy so I took my seat. I had my eye make-up removed and a cream applied before the sticks. I picked out the Bountiful Beige as a lighter base colour then Whopping Willow (green) as the main shade. I loved how the product went on, it felt nice on the eye and seemed to be easy to apply. Deciding to leave it on for a bit then chose a colour, I walked away from the counter. An hour later I took a look at my eyes and the colour had creased terribly. Now I'm not sure if it's that it was applied straight after an oily cream or that it's more of a creamy base rather than a powder shadow. Either way I left empty handed. I will give it a go another time without removing my powder and report back then.
Whilst in Milton Keynes last week, I grabbed some of the shop window images to share. New Look's were both stylish and inspirational. I love denim shirts at the moment, but fail to find the right one for me. Monochrome was featured in all three windows, a major SS13 trend.

My wish list item this week, Victoria Beckham's two tone clutch. I had my hands on this little baby and the black and cream version (which was my favourite) in Harrods. The quality of the leather was outstanding, and it needed to be at this price. I loved the simplicity of the design, it was sleek and sophisticated. One day maybe!

On a slightly cheaper note, here is Gap's leather clutch. Not as structured leather as Victoria's (love just calling her Victoria as though I know her....) but for the price, a fair alternative. I am all for real leather and think this is a very well priced piece. I arranged that little display for them!
