Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks…

1) First dibs on the Cult Beauty sale for A Model Recommends readers. Up to 40% off! It doesn’t officially open until 10am, so all the best bits will still be there! I can’t see in advance what’s up for grabs, but I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be some Murad and some NuBo, so… handbags and elbows ready! Cult Beauty Sale

2) The Autumn Newsletter goes out in about five hours time – last chance to sign up should you have missed earlier warnings! The reason I’ve mentioned it a few times is that for the summer edition, there were about 1200 people who signed up IN THE THREE HOURS AFTER IT HAD BEEN SENT OUT! I then had to pay all over again to re-send to the second mailing list. So…. Sign-up box is below should you need it!

3) Halloween. Doing anything nice? I’m thinking of just standing very still in front of my window with my palms to the glass, Woman in Black stylee.

4) Have you actually SEEN the Diorling nail polish from Dior? Or, in fact, anything from the new, limited edition Grand Bal range? Here:

or, here?:

It’s a beautiful, beautiful collection. Dior are really doing it for me this year – their Golden Jungle collection for this autumn was brilliant. You can see all of the Grand Bal products (lipsticks, polishes, palettes, false lashes) here at Selfridges.

5) Caudalie Mini Giveaway Winners: Meepster, Linee14, Nita Bach, Michele Carlin and Kat Kennedy. Well done, hopefully that’ll be “grape” news for you. (Hohoho.) If you haven’t had an email, check your spam box!

    The Dior is just too beautiful. Just saw the palette! Why oh why did I spend so much this weekend on Christmas gifts – mostly to myself? (ahem) Did I really need boots, shoes, dresses, etc? No, I tell you. I need the gorgeous Dior! (Sobs pathetically and hysterically and goes off to find some unattractive bottle of nail polish and an old palette from summer to soothe the off-the-chart disappointtment.)

    As usual my comment or question rather comes in off topic. I have slightly oily skin not breakout prone unless I am in times of great stress or laziness for the most part. Recently my skin has been feeling somewhat fragile and dry yet still oily?! I have tried moisturizers that would be a bit heavy for me but they do not seem to be doing the trick. I was thinking that there must be some kind of mask or maybe serum that should fix the issue. Also any good cleansers lately something along the lines of pai or something thats deep cleansing but none stripping? Been a bit bored of my morning cleansers lately.

    Hi there ruth! Just a quick question: have you completed and sent the Autumn Newsletter? I have already signed up and received the Summer one. Just checking if there is something wrong or changes since I signed up :S
