I discovered the CatwalkLive.TV website at the end of last week. It lists links to streams of the Fashion Week shows with dates and times. I caught a few of the shows in New York over the week and hope to do the same for shows in London this week (it'll be a little easier not having to calculate the time difference). One of highlights for me was watching Diane von Furstenburg last Sunday.

I've also been enjoying all of the Le Métier makeover posts and news from my blogging pals in the States. Both Product Doctor and The Black Panties shared pictures of the beautiful Oscar de la Renta Ready to Wear Kaleidoscope. Pink Sith had a makeover with the lovely Erin Lockard who I had the pleasure to meet in Selfridges last year. Elvira also made her own custom Pink Sith Kaleidoscope. Who says jealousy is ugly?! Charleston Girl over at Best Things in Beauty shared a Kaleidoscope that completely went under the radar for me; Modernist Merlot. The sweet torture continues!
The other thing that kept me entertained this week was the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick Challenge. If you missed the post, I wore 7 lipsticks over 7 days. The Colour Elixir lipstick formula is lovely to wear and my lips are in beautiful condition after a week of use. Not all of the colours were a good fit for me though, as you will see!
