'Like' my lipstick?

I never leave home without at least two lipstick shades and a few lip glosses. Of course, I don't need to use them all at once, but I feel like I need to have the light and dark shades with me in case I don't like how it looks when I'm out. Then I can quickly change my look. No stress.

Today I went out to lunch, not only forgetting to take my lipstick, but forgetting my entire makeup truckload bag. With a sudden urge and energy to desperately rectify the situation, I went in search of somewhere to get one. Bad mistake. I am hopeless at choosing the right shade (dark or light? matte or gloss? sparkles anyone?) ... ah .... My hand, acting as the canvas, ended up being a rainbow of shades, bruised and swollen from constantly wiping and re-wiping colours and still no closer to finding the right shade. Why was I there again? Hmmm - did I already have that shade at home?

I am still not sure how on earth I ended up leaving the store with a bundle of new gold eyeshadow and a bath squeegee ... still lipstick-less.

Vintage-inspired treasures

New Etsy App Gallery for sellers and buyers

Etsy have just announced the release of their Etsy App Gallery, which helps sellers to streamline their shops and products and making it easier for buyers to find handmade items, particularly with the lead up to Christmas. There are a variety of interesting tools for buyers, shops and mobile, including Etsy on Sale for managing sale events, FotoFuze to help you enhance your photos, Etsy Addict to browse products on your mobile and Cre8tivity to help you monitor your shop and download sales info. I will be providing my personal review of the apps shortly, but for now, go and check out the Etsy App Gallery and feel free to post your thoughts on them here.

Summer 2011 Collection

I have been working hard on some new designs for my Summer 2011 collection. The theme for my new season takes a detour to chain body jewellery and really focuses on using vintage inspired chainmaille in much more interesting ways than just your standard bracelets. I started pushing the notion of multi-purpose jewellery using chainmaille. One of my newest pieces is an intricately made silver mini purse necklace. Something that is edgy, elegant and a safe place I can store loose change for my morning coffee, hide away some sweet smelling lavender or other secret momentos.

Shoulder body jewellery is also taking a front seat and really pushing my brand forward as an edgier, more sexy look, incorporating chunky chains that drape delicately over one shoulder.

My 'convertibles' range uses lots of multi-coloured chains of different weights which clip and wrap around your body to create a multitude of different looks - strands of bracelets, chokers or necklaces - all from the one set.

Don't forget to come and visit my shops at Etsy or Artfire and follow me on Twitter!
