  • just back from a PR preview of #EsteeLauder Xmas: red and gold colour theme, and the new eye palettes are full of aubergine and black-purple #
  • had sneak peek/sniff of new #TomFord #fragrance, Grey Vetiver, due Nov 2: his best yet, v chic. handsome *and* a genius: hate the man… #
  • just noticed that Bodyform ’sanitaryware’ has begun following me. thanks and all that and, er, welcome, but…. WTF?! #
  • more butchering of editorial jobs at #MediaWales in Cardiff, I hear. what will happen to all that Welsh talent? & the quality of its output? #

  • loving the new on-counter make-up consultation menu from #BobbiBrown: very excited to be going to a Beauty Team event tomorrow #
  • writing beauty for Nov issues of various mags. feel like a 4-yr-old let off the leash in Hamleys. like playing with crayons, only better. #
  • anyone see Rob Lowe on the #Emmys and wonder if he has a portrait in the attic? he looks like he’s carved out of Plasticine (in a good way) #
  • all PRs are not the same… but today I’m loving SVPR for its hideous levels of efficiency. have a chocolate medal for services to beauty… #
  • @indiaknight another fan of make-up alley here: those girls are crazy-sharp and really know their stuff. I do love a good beauty-obsessive in reply to indiaknight #
  • something weird is going on. two helicopters overhead, circling. have I escaped from prison and forgotten? #
  • @indiaknight it’s handy when I go to the States though: insider info on all the best obscure brands in Walgreens and Duane Reade etc in reply to indiaknight #
  • still can’t order from the Toys R Us site, which throws me out every time. don’t make me go into the actual store, please, I beg you *sob* #
  • hey, #skiing fans: what’s the hottest (coldest?) destination this year? where’s best to go? #

  • this is why I hate shopping online. Toys R Us site playing up but no phone number to call: either email or FAX. fax? what is this, 1991? #
  • so, it’s going to be one of *those* weeks, is it? seriously contemplating wiping the slate clean and starting afresh… next Monday. #

  • why all the fuss about Alesha on Strictly? no-one minds that Cheryl and Dannii on X Factor aren’t exactly Streisand-esque in the talent dept #
  • here’s an idea, complainers. don’t like it? don’t watch/read/listen to it. u have choices. complaint culture’s so much worse since Sachsgate #
  • RT: vanityfairmagRead the full text of Levi Johnston’s “Me and Mrs. Palin” from the October issue of V.F. now! http://is.gd/3wLLz #
  • someone just emailed me PR pics of Peaches Geldof wearing black velvet and burgundy hair at LFW, and not even in an ironic way, I fear. ack #
  • @AppleEve @judyastley nothing wrong with it, if you’re (a) in the Twilight sequel, or (b) a founding member of Fleetwood Mac… in reply to AppleEve #

  • looking forward to watching the #Emmys later. it’s always good value for tragi-fashion, and takes itself less seriously than the Oscars #
  • @kellyrose Double Dubonnet and gin for you, then, please barman… in reply to kellyrose #

  • finally gave in and joined #Facebook, after years of resisting. suspect I don’t have the energy for it. isn’t it for tweens and the tragic? #
