Hermes Scarf Fashion

I've always loved silk scarves and I am more than sure I've actually posted about this before. Anyway, here's another awesome Hermes 'how to wear your scarf' guide. The versatility of something so simple is why I have a whole collection of scarves from all different brands. I need to get them out and wear them more often, don't I?

Kensington Compact iPad Keyboard

I bought this from Catch Of The Day a while back and I've taken it travelling with me.

We've got 2 computers amongst 3 travelling so I've just brought my ipad with me and when I'm using that as my only 'computer' I need a proper keyboard to type faster and get things done quicker! Stupidly enough, I have the most compact and least heavy computer of the 3 of us (Macbook Air) yet I'm the only one not bringing my computer. Go figure!

Anyway I was tossing up between this and an actual keyboard case but chose this because a) its more compact b) this was cheaper and c) I didn't really want a case.

This is really really compact at barely 1cm thick and as you can see it is just a little bigger than the size of the ipad itself. I don't like those case + keyboard combo things because I often like to have just the compactness of the ipad to carry around rather than the added bulk of the case. Instead I use an uber cute Kate Spade sleeve :)

The best thing about it? The keys are actual keys, not those weird jelly like protrusions that respond to key presses. There is actual depth to these keys and key pressing is really quite easy despite the slightly compressed keyboard size. And it charges by USB so no pesky batteries to deal with!

Make Up Haulage

I'm on holiday at the moment so don't have time to post properly about this but I went to the Estée Lauder sale the day I flew out overseas and managed to spend a pretty $200 or so on make up I didn't need. But of course, right?!

Anyway, it makes up for not usually spending much on make up. And with some of the items it was completely justifiable. A proper post when I get back describing it more in detail and my purchasing strategy, but for now, here's a preview of my 'haul' (excuse the upside down picture, no matter how many times I rotate it on my photo storage account, it won't rotate on blogger)

If you look carefully you can see that 75% of the haul is eyeliner - what can I say, I love eyeliner. The amount I was paying for Bobbi Brown eyeliners was less than Rimmel at 40% off from Priceline. And I regularly use a combination of gel, liquid and pencil eyeliners (some days I even use all 3 at once in a careful harmony) so it seemed justified.
