I hope you’re having some fun – me? I’m in the office, sorting through the work that’s piled up since Friday and thinking about what to get people for Christmas. That part’s a joke. In any case, this weekend I discovered what happens when you overwork yourself into a frenzy: on the first day in approximately two months that I didn’t set my alarm (Sunday), I woke up at 2pm. And only when my housemate woke me to check I wasn’t dead. Nice!

Have you been keeping an eye on the paper? Each Wednesday I’ll be recommending star buys, answering reader queries (email me rmaccabe@irishtimes.com if you have one!) and generally talking style in the features pages. And in the next couple of weeks I have a few shoots coming up about which I’m quite chuffed; I’ll post the pics here!

In other news, tomorrow’s November which means one thing and one thing only: H&M and Versace! Okay, technically that’s two things, but I am beyond excited and will be sure to line up to be one of the first 500 and get a free bottle of Yellow Diamond. Another thing I’m excited about in November is the December issue of Elle UK, featuring one Michelle Williams looking absolutely divine. ‘Mazin’.

In any case, I’ll be back tomorrow to start the week off properly this time – featuring a three-week manicure review, details of my current night cream, a foundation review (cosmetic-heavy, then!), some tips on winter dressing, snow boots (because it’s getting to be about that time, eek!), colour block shoes from far and wide and God knows what else will tickle my fashion fancy!

I’ve missed you all; bear with me while I attempt to juggle my way through the multitasking melee!

(Incidentally, Anouska is wearing leggings and swimsuit by the amazing Black Milk; I ordered my selection a couple of days ago and will report back with details!)
