Just a quickie before I head out for a day of chores, or as I’d like to say, excuse to drink five hazelnut lattes and stumble home feeling like a cow/squirrel by the end of the day. I’m hoping to finish my Christmas shopping this week so that I’m not forever remembered as that girl that keeps getting into rumbles with desperate middle-aged men in aisle 5 for the last tree-shaped candle. Although, I do usually look forward to February 13th because that rumble is usually for the last heart-shaped chocolate with desperate 20-somethings and seeing how I’m married that’s the most action I get in months. Oh I’m kidding. Sob.

Also, do check out a wee guest post I did for Wink, a blog by Nathalie Colin, the Creative Director of Swarovski, on matching jewellery with belt. Here’s a preview…:

I had a chance to attend a quick introduction session at Swarovski for their new collection the other day (thank you Laura!), where I was positively shocked at how versatile and widely used crystals were. So much that basically every time you see a sparkle on a fashion garment or home interior, you can safely assume it’s a product of Swarovski. I was shown all the types of beads, application techniques and texture ‘palettes’, then taken around the show room to see how they were put to action. It was a bit like seeing a few yarn balls and then going around to see a Rodarte piece, similar sort of overwhelming, but fantastic nonetheless.
