"If your brain was made to sprint the hundred metres Fi, you'd be world class!"
My mother had a point when she said this; my brain is definitely the most exercised part of me (though the rest has forgotten what a gym looks like anyway). So I've decided Sundays should be a day for it to churn out any thoughts that have been rattling around during the week. Just so the noggin/noodles/loaf can take a break, I'll be letting you in on little musings like the news stories that have distracted me when I should be waiting for a bus or fashion lusts that are keeping me awake at night.
So to start us off, who else is giving Emma Stone the green eye this week? Whether it's Dolce and Gabbana in Madrid or gothic Gucci in Paris, she has rocked every red carpet for 'The Amazing Spiderman' premieres. I wish I could say it helps to have a man like Andrew Garfield on her arm but, no, she shined on her own. Normally they would be the type of couple I'd like to trip up on the street but genuine love in Hollywood is a rare thing it seems and I wouldn't want to ruin an Elie Saab anyway!
I'm not sure if I envy the girl more for pulling off that Elie Saab jumpsuit or pulling Andrew Garfield.

Argh Gucci and Garfield what more does a girl need in life? And pairing a red suit with vampy lips-it was clearly meant to be.
Now I am ashamed to say, in my twenty-one years, I had no idea that Van Cleef and Arpels is actually famous for it's fine jewellery rather than perfume but my first fragrance was from their seasons collection. However, a good friend was kind enough to educate me when we went window shopping in Harrods (kind of like going around museums but even cheaper) and I have been dreaming ever since.
The pieces are the epitome of elegance.
Now, is anyone else undecided on Julien MacDonald's new bespoke couture collection?
The formidable designer launched his new Bespoke label late last year but whilst most of the collection wows me, some of it is dangerously close to looking like the model has been caught in a bodycon fish net. Not that it really matters of course, these pieces are saved for only private clients...one can dream.
What has been on your mind this week then?
