This week I've been mostly enjoying...

Beauty-wise, the coverage of the A/W '10 shows is pleasing me no end so far. Eyebrows are back! None of your bleachey Lara Stone muckery (although I really enjoy that whole look, mostly just jealous I could never pull it off), but rather bushy, filled in, blackened, dyed fluoro (not exactly easy to pull off outside of runway and editorial, but interesting nevertheless) and even added to with feathers in the case of Topshop Unique. I feel it's necessary to mention here that I'm obsessed with eyebrows. It's (they're?) the one makeup thing I do if I've got no time for makeup. They just give a bit of structure and frame the face so nicely if done well.. I think Thakoon does it best (although I admit I'm still working through the shows) - kind of earthy and natural with only a bit of blush and no mascara but nicely pencilled in brows for a bit of definition.. Other brow feinds were Prada, Dries van Noten, Narciso Rodriguez, Alberta Feretti and Balenciaga. Again, I'm still trawling the coverage, but so far, I'm very excited..
