De Grisogono introduces fine jewellery watches that feature a unique cylinder shaped case fittingly dubbed Lipstick.

An elegant, eye-catching and innovative blend of watch design and sophisticated jewellery, the LIPSTICK watch comes in either a rectangular or cylindrical form and is set with emeralds, sapphires, rubies, or diamonds and completed with a matching galuchat strap. There are also two exceptional versions with invisibly set baguette diamonds. The fluid shaped hands are behind a convex sapphire glass.

Available in either 18 carat red or white gold, LIPSTICK is equipped with a quartz movement and is attached to the interchangeable bracelet using a doubly secure system.

You can check out the newest version inside Harper's Bazaar: December issue

Enormous Eyelash Drug - Bimatoprost

It sounds like those who love their eyelashes big and beautiful can soon throw away their mascara and stick-ons. A main ingredient (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) in a popular glaucoma medicine has the added side effect of causing eyelashes to grow.

This has caught the attention of companies who are interested in further developing this into an honest-to-goodness eyelash-fertilizer.

WOW, you mean I won't have to get the individuals anymore? What if they never stop growing or something? Sounds haute but wierd all at the same time.

Don't Point the PINK-EY Finger at Me......

...and they tell me I love pink too much. Well guess what? There is someone out there who loves pink more than I:

Betsey Johnson is one of my favorite designers. I call her "Miss Cartwheel" lol. Anyway, to enter into her New York Penthouse is to enter a world in which her imagination-as usual-runs wild. One enters through an aluminum front door resembling that of a spaceship, and lands inside the two-story penthouse.

The loft’s walls are painted a pure white (once a chrome yellow in their previous incarnation), and the floors are stained dark. Minimalist pieces such as a stark platform bed from Ligne Roset, sleek industrial cabinets with glass doors and lined in antique lace in the kitchen, and a set of classic 1960s dining chairs with curvy basket backs complete the intriguing look.

Her bedroom is “an explosion of pink,” with pink painted walls and a bright-pink embroidered silk quilt from Coco de Mer in London, a shagpile rug in a matching shade, and vases with artificial roses.

As a rose-tinted spectacle, Hollywood-style sofas and a couple of George Nelson glass-topped benches, designed in the 1940s and used as a coffee table, adorn the living room. Her mid-century pieces have been removed from storage, and include an original Womb Chair and stool by Eero Saarinen, a dark wood dining table with clean lines and Warren Platner chairs softened by a swirly botanical rug.

Now that's a lot of pink.......

With this Bling...oops I mean Ring......I be wed...

So my bestfriend is getting married next year and I am sooo excited. I love weddings, except for the fact that I get jealous and say, "Awww I want to get married too" I want the wedding and the massive wedding ring, not the husband to be clear. I always said that I wouldn't get married because guys are so overrated. In the meantime, I have been keeping a mental note of the type of ring I would want IF I were to get engaged…ya know, just in case.

I came across Abazias, this fabulous e-store that let me build my own ring and ladies, I must say, I had a little too much fun with this. I played around with so many different possibilities and I know that fashion snobs like you want things your way or no way. Here is a beauty that I personally built and her perfect stats:

My platinum baguette setting:

My VS2 emerald cut diamond:
(In most cases you see the finished product, but the ring I built was just too fabulous so I had to show my haute rock separately)

If a right hand ring or love and marriage isn't your cup of tea right now, you must must must see their extensive selection of fine jewelry, which includes everything from bracelets to necklaces to a Paris Hilton limited edition watch collection. Now many of you know that I am a stud girl and I have a thing for "over compensatory" hand accessories. A little ear bling and a huge ring finishes any look so I browsed the whole site looking for the hauteness! Check these out:

The Super Haute Diamond Cluster Earrings 1 (ct. tw)

Bezel Set Antique Style Diamond Earrings 1/4 (ct. tw)

Amethyst and Diamond Antique Style Fashion Ring 3/4 (ct. tw)

I thought you should also know that Abazias sells loose diamonds and has over 100,000 available. The free shipping and thorough diamond education guide doesn't hurt either. With that being said...what are you waiting for?
