Well, I really was flagging today, I have to admit – not least because I got soaked to my skin twice in a one day! But I did see some fabulous things, and had my first mini-mince pie of the unseason. So, I started at Selfridges, whose theme this year is a White Christmas. One of the best things is that the Lancome Beauty Advent Calender is back – and there will be lots more in production this time and not so hard to get hold of this year. The picture I have here is a prototype and if you don’t want to see the contents, click away now. 

There is also a nice box of Lancome crackers, all with a beauty treat inside and perfect for a girly Christmas do.

Selfridges have asked their brands to create something white especially and Dior have created this black and white duo – nice and sparkly.

I know it’s all about the beauty, but I couldn’t resist adding in these pics of the miniature shoes created in perfect tiny form. They’ll form part of a collection that will cost money I dare not even print on here. 

And the Barbie Louboutin set? I’m all set to rummage out an old Barbie and get her red soled, although bitterness could set in if my doll has 9 pairs of Louboutins and I’m still to even get my first pair!



Finally, my favourite item of the show.. Steamcream’s poodle tin. Some readers will know I have two tiny poodles here at home and I absolutely adore them. They’re called Honey and Coco and we are all besotted with them so anything poodly and I’m smitten.
