January Jones looking oh-so-good on the cover of W Magazine. Stylist Lori Goldstein has done an amazing job creating a sexy, edgy vibe. Betty Draper who?

Wake Up Make Up

Today I've just been playing around with make up for my Illamasqua project, which I plan on shooting in the next couple of days. Like all things, a little trial and error was needed, but we're getting there. Here's the start of one look I practised on myself. Excuse the messy hair.

Saving My Sweet Sweet Pennies

I never seem to have much luck with bags, the one I want is always last season, sold out or never been stocked in the shops I go to.

But times are a-changing.

I WILL save up and I WILL buy this bag for myself. At $458 aka £280 this Marc Jacobs Dr. Q Backpack is quite affordable. I'm just in lovvve with it. The beautiful 'reef blue' colour, the shape, the style, everything! I spotted it whilst shopping yesterday in Dubai. Tried it on. Kept it on for a little while. Was kindly asked to remove it. Said a tearful goodbye. Promised us both to one day be reunited. Only downer was that it was double the price here, so I'm going to wait until I'm back in England.... or maybe order it online so it arrives just before i get back. I feel a beautiful bag/owner friendship coming on.

I won't let you get away bag!

Jaiden rVa James

A Couple of weeks ago Jaiden Jeremy James, from menswear range Jaiden rVa James and co founder of RE-BEL magazine was a guest speaker at my uni. JJJ spoke about his career in the design industry; how he got started, Somerset House shows, dressing Lady Gaga for her Alejandro video and Fame Monster tour, G-shock collaborations, creating hats worn in a Nick Knight video and then starting his own online magazine. It was amazing to hear how much he had achieved in such a short space of time, which he modestly put down to luck - being in the right place at the right time with the right people.

RE-BEL magazine is distributed by Diesel in London, Paris and New York.
