What is it about this time of year that makes me start thinking about halloween costumes {nearly two months early}?  Maybe it is the fact that Miss R and myself's birthday is just around the corner and a fancy dress soiree is unfortunately not on the cards {the joys of sharing your birthday with your non-fancy-dress-loving twin sister, only joking Rose - well kind of!}  Anyway it means that I am probably going to be posting alot a couple of All Hallow's Eve costume and makeup musings up until the 30th October - I will try to space them out!  So the question is - gold leaf, glitter or paint...?

...and whilst I am on the subject of this precious metal here are a few of my fave examples of 
gilded goodness from the A/W 2011-12 shows, gold glitterati gets my vote!
