Honestly, you can see where that was going...!
This year, TE feels it has achieved most of the cherished goals (minus the weight-loss thing...damn you chocolate!). TE feels happy and, yes, one might even say fearless! Not in the arrogant pompous way but more in a self-secure and calming way. Life is good and it just keeps getting better - goes to show that a positive attitude can do miracles. Ok I am not going to get all self-help-bookey on you gals, we all know how uncool that is!
Having said that, however, I am dedicating my last blog entry of the year to something that is very fashionable: Comfort. (Yes, I did pick up on the pj trouser trend and No, I will most def not be adopting it).
My list of comfort items would have to include:
1) A soft and loose fitting boyfriend cachemire jumper, as available at JCrew:
2) My beloved Uggs, this year for my 3rd purchase it will be black:
3) Stretchy jeans, so much better than the ones you can barely squeeze into (and still have the cool factor), recently loving these from Comptoir des Cotonniers:
Ok so finally, as the ultimate comfort factor of the year TE would haste to recommend Shellac manicures - great colour, lasts for 3 weeks = hands permanently tidy!
My dears, have a great end to the year and an even better beginning to the new one...as they say in some countries, what you do on NYE you will do all year. (TE might be scoffing cheese and wines, not too shabby right?!).

Just one rule - to be worn exclusively with trousers, the result of a skirt-and-loafer combo could be fatal.
My pick of the wide range of loafers I have seen around town has to narrow down to a top 3:
#1 Top Shop studded loafer
Honestly, cannot find any fault: price, comfort, cool factor. They have it all. And I just *had* to have them (husband will have a shock, he's still moaning about the last pair of shoes purchased...ahem...a 'few' weeks ago).
#2 The classic loafer
Traditional, evergreen, stylish - this one from Asos but many available on high street and the likes
#3 Loafers with heels
For those that really cannot do the whole flat pump thing these gorgeous Uterque heeled loafers will do the trick
TE thinks these are all very viable options for the fashion- forward girls out there, watch this space - come spring everyone will be lusting for your loafers!
Enjoy the great christmas season and give thanks for the lovely fashion gifts that you will no doubt receive :)
Yours Faithfully, TE

Thanks to Clements Ribeiro, I found the perfect Christmas stockings:
The stockings are named after Father Christmas' reindeers: Blitzen, Donner, Dasher, Cupid, Rudolph, Comet and Popzin.
They are cute and stylish. Perfect for any fashionable home!

The run up to Christmas it's a crazy time of the year. Trisori's headquarter becomes incredibly busy with clients ordering their last minute gifts, overseas shops asking for immediate delivery..... and my beauty routine suffers because of it.
I thought I was destined to live with my Panda eyes until I found these 2 marvelous products:
Skin Wisdom Eye Roll: It's a lovely little product that helps reducing the appearance of Dark circles and puffy eyes. It retails for 7 pounds and it's worth a try as the massaging roll applicator boosts micro circulation and drainage.
And finally, before going to bed, I applied a Delicious Kit ChapStick:
Isn't it the cutest chapstick ever? And it's only 3.99 pounds.

With this concept in mind I thought I would share some of my favorite gift ideas for this christmas.
Last year in my annual pre-christmas panic, Neom Luxury Organic Candles came to the rescue. With the beautiful aroma of Cinnamon, Ginger and Mandarin, Neom has created a lovely warming christmas scent worth £40.

I have picked a few my favorite dazzling pieces...
It is hardly a secret Elizabeth Taylor, fell in love more than a few times...but diamonds were her life long love affair. This diamond ring given to her by her on/off husband Robert Burton, was to quote the Actress: her "baby". To bid for such an item would be a bid for one of the most historic love stories.
Another generous gift from praised actor, enigmatic Richard Burton, was an enchanting emerald-and-flower head jewel by Bulgari. This spectacular head piece, is worn by Elizabeth along with a beautiful brooch and dangling earings also by Bulgari.
Two equally breath-taking items from her collection, given to her by her then producer husband Mike Todd. These gifts from Cartier are utter perfection (very suiting). Feasting my eyes on all these magnificent pendants, i am able to catch a glimpse of the legacy that was Elizabeth Taylor.
The stories of all these jewels are like the movies she starred in, very glamorous!

Fact is, the days of a Mulberry bag per season have sailed for TE it thinks.
So TE being quite the entrepreneur (in fashion terms) has set out to find something to quench the thirst for bag-ness without breaking the old bank.
Just FYI, even if you are still filthy rich, these days you should be acting with austerity given that it's the word of the jour! Also the role of damsel in distress and all that is quite sexy. Men love it.
So this is what TE found for you lot, a safe haven of lovely soft leather bags that range from 100£ to 400£. Now what is wrong with that?!
Nothing, that's the cool thing.
Look here, it's a bag from Uterque the latest sibling of Inditex (think Zara, Massimo Dutti etc). And boy do they deliver!
The models are classy and the leather is buttery (look for the 100% leather models!).
TE really likes these arm candies and frankly feels that the husband should *not* complain about TE having "enough" handbags.
Honestly, where does said husband get such ideas??...the word "enough" is banned from anything associated to TE's belongings. Fact.
TE will report back soon, in the meantime enjoy bagging these lovelies!

Not that the summer has actually happened in London but being perfectly honest TE has a certain preference for autumnal colours. The reds, the hues of oranges, the grey skies...all sources of great inspiration to TE. I mean, let's be frank, it doesn't take much for TE to find an excuse to shop.
Currently TE is channeling head-wear more than actual clothes and what can it say that hasn't been said before? Not much really, except that TE really endorses these trilbys and fedoras that it is seeing on mags and in streets. Actually, TE has brought itself one of the most acclaimed brands: Christys (http://christys-hats.com/). Namely the Marylebone in Bessemer (shown here in light grey, a picture taken by TE might follow if you wish).
TE completely endorses the acclaims. It is a beautiful hat and for someone like TE who is by far no hat specialist it looks the business: creamy silk lining, proper thick felt and the stitches of well-made stuff. Yes, TE must say it is quite impressed by the quality and for 65£ we say it's a bargain...well, you make of it what you wish but TE will just end with one thing: this winter a trendy fedora hat is a must!
Happy start to the autumn.
Yours faithfully, The Eye (aka TE)

A friend and I decided to get away for a few days and head over to her place in Normandy to enjoy the autumnal views and cosy evenings over there as well as a spot of maintenance. So we sped over to Portsmouth straight after work to catch the ferry. Doing the ferry crossing overnight makes sense in terms of time saving, until you're woken up by strange music at 5am hammering right into your ears from right above your head! We then made the early morning drive to Boudet from Caen stopping for a French version of a cappuccino (a viennese coffee if you ask me) and a pain au raisin along the way to up energy levels.
One we arrived, I got the grand tour of all the buildings there, which centres around a beautiful grassy courtyard from its original farm days. The large house - originally the farm, sleeps 10 whilst the converted barn sleeps 8 (9 with the sofa bed) and then there's the cider press which sleeps a couple (at half board self catering.) They have all been done up in classic French country style of the area - surrounding Manche near St Michel with a few shaker fittings - minimlist but with sweet homely touches. Surrounded by apple trees with a couple of vines and pear trees, one really does get the feeling of being in rural France. Especially with the vast garden complete with pond and al fresco dining areas.
Supermarkets are not too far away so we stopped off at the nearest one in the closest town to choose a few things to eat for that day before coming back, eating and collapsing. I never sleep in the day, but by this point, I was so physically exhausted that I managed to sleep for around 3 hours until it got dark when we lit a fire and snuggled in front of it watching TV and flicking through magazines.
Being Autumn, rather cold, a little rainy, and me not feeling too hot, I didn't really want to venture outside too much, but had it been nice, it would have been a perfect opportunity to take the bikes out (kept in the shed - a traditional Norman bake house which all houses have access to) and see some of the Norman countryside in its glory. I hear that spring is a beautiful time here but for me nothing beats the wonderful colours of the autumn leaves turning on the trees. There's even a croquet lawn for the sunnier months.
One could have a really cosy time here a deux, as those who have already stayed in the cider press will attest to. It maintains many of the old features, giving the place a real character with a mezzanine bedroom nestled upstairs and open plan kitchenette in the main space as you open the large stable like doors. Or this could act as an overspill for parties for either or both houses, thus sleeping a maximum of 20-21 in total for a huge gathering - family, friends on holiday or for special occasions.
