Last minute Christmas loveliness (and a totally gratuitous picture of bloggers)

Let’s cut to the chase: time is certainly now of the essence.

If you need help with your Christmas makeup get thee to John Lewis in Oxford St, Brent Cross, Kingston, Peter Jones or Stratford. Shiseido are doing free (FREE) 20 minute one-to-one classes on how to do either a pared-down Christmas look – or full on glamour using looks created by Artistic Director Dick Page.

If you’re a fan of Donna Karan’s gorgeous Cashmere Mist you’ll love this.  A Limited Edition adorned with Swarovski crystals – it’s priced £84.50 and is available from Harrods (obviously).

Fans of Michael Kors’ original fragrance will find this hard to resist. To celebrate 30 years of his fashion line he has released a sheer version of Gold – his beautiful tubereuse based fragrance now updated with lighter notes of freesia and magnolia. Nom.

Being Michael Kors, he roped in Mario Testino to photograph Karmen Pedaru – MK’s muse, to showcase ‘the Michael Kors woman, the epitome of effortless beauty and relaxed sophistication’. No need really – he could have just used this lovely visual of your favourite bloggers showcasing their love for Michael Kors watches.

I’d have done him a deal.

If you ARE a fan of the fragrance – get it from Harrods and they’ll throw in this beeyoudifull Weekender bag for free.

And if my husband is reading this – I need that watch.
