Where is the time going? Brown Thomas‘s Christmas shop is in full swing by now, while most other retailers are gearing up for Halloween by decking their halls (and so on and so forth). For those of you not wishing to think about seasonal holidays, there’s plenty of reading from this week gone to be digging into on this fine Sunday.

Anthea McTeirnan, editor of Friday entertainment supplement The Ticket and all-round fab feminist, went to see the Chippendales’ show in the Olympia. Cue lots of cringing.

We’re still talking about London Fashion Week over on the Business of Fashion; Colin McDowell looks back on the week in fashion.

And sticking with BoF, they’ve got a 10-piece photo diary of the week to boot.

The Guardian has an interesting story about how Burberry stopped production at a Chinese factory due to its breaking the British company’s ethics guidelines.

I wrote about the My-Wardrobe blogger collaboration, but Coco’s Tea Party’s Ella has the lowdown on the part she played in the event.

I’m nowhere near having a little girl’s room – or, you know, decorating it – but Jen from Jen Loves Kev’s big girl room post has made me ever so slightly broody! (For the interior decor possibilities, mind you!) There are loads of really smart DIY tips in there that I’m planning on trying out in my own room.

Emily from Fashion Foie Gras blogged on her first look at Primark’s new Oxford St store. I was there too, and wrote a news story for The Irish Times on the opening.

Aimee Song has been blogging her NYFW looks all weekand she has those Westward Leaning sunglasses I drooled over a few weeks back. Jealous.

Courtney Smith is this month’s WhatSheWears.ie’s guest editor, giving her style tips and best buys for the season ahead. (Remember when I guest edited WhatSheWears? It feels like years ago now . . . !)

Even though I’m not a big cook (what? I like to eat out!) I do love reading food blogs, and Tasty Kitchen Blog’s recipe for cucumber feta rolls is going on my “must-try” list. Amazing.
