Today I want to share a few things with you that are beautiful and just looking at them makes my day better.
Tom Ford Foundation Stick in Alabaster: I bought this at Selfridges at the recommendation of my good friend Lady Jane Grey, and I am totally obsessed with this foundation. It is truly the best I have ever tried, and there have been plenty, believe me. It is always a problem for me to find a good color match, here in Europe most lines do not offer light enough shades (I would have a better time in Asia, I guess). Only Mac, Giorgio Armani and Bobbi Brown make shades that I can wear. This is the lightest in the Tom Ford range and it is a perfect fit. But what is so great about it is not only the color, but the wear. It looks completely imperceptible, like my skin but flawless. It holds up the entire day and I don’t even need a separate under-eye concealer (and I have dark shadows to rival any self-respecting zombie!), the foundation just makes them disappear. Very impressive. Very pricy. Highly recommended.
Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Pink Dune is a shimmery golden pink that trills “It’s springtime! Be happy!” and I obey. My obsession with beautiful notebooks by British luxury leather goods purveyor Smythson has extended to things to enhance my other daily companion, the iPad. Sadly, I can only dream about this gorgeous case for my iPad Air, and dreaming is just what I’ll do.
Isn’t it pretty?

And while we are at it, why not dream of this too… (Smythson Panama Collection tote in dove grey, sigh.)
The power of the (hand-)written word has propelled me back to writing more again and I’m very happy about that.
