Now my move is sorted and official I can start to plan new bits for it. Having seen so many thinks I like recently this list came together in about 10mins. How exciting!

|Imperial State Crown|
|Crown of Queen Mary of Modena|
|Imperial Crown of India|
|Prince of Wales' Crown|
|St. Edwards Crown|
These wonderful illustrations are from The Crown Jewels of England by Sir George John Younghusband and Cyril Davenport, which was published in 1919. I love the colours, opulence and masculine softness. They have got me in the mood for some Royal research, so watch this space.

Although I am tempted to do a AW'11 'my fantasy shopping list' post, as I compile that for myself each season anyhow.)
Into The Gloss ....is the best original material site I've seen in a long long while. It's refreshing to read a beauty site with an editor that clearly understands who and what exactly feed into cosmetic and toiletry trends. And its well designed too...why is it that so many beauty blogs have great content but are hideous to look at??
One of my favourite post categories is The Top Shelf section, I love a spy on what other folks are using.
"A DREAM YOU DREAM ALONE
IS ONLY A DREAM
A DREAM YOU DREAM TOGETHER
(It's 100% official I move up to this little house on the Lake District in a few months to finally be with my boyfriend of three years, after leaving 350 miles away from him all this time. Let the house warming shopping commence!!!!!)
