Nicole Richie attended the First Annual Baby2Baby Gala presented by Harry Winston honouring Jessica Alba over the weekend. She wore a Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 gown, and like the true brand ambassador she is, carried a clutch from her House of Harlow 1960 line.


The Marley leather box clutch has a snake effect finish, a detachable chain strap and a snake clasp fastening at top.



The clutch,which also comes in black, blue, multicoloured and olive, is available from Harvey Nichols for £195.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

As the weather turns colder and the central heating goes up, our skin can be depleted of moisture. Cold winds outside and drying a/c inside means we have to give extra consideration to our skincare routine.

My latest beauty find is Origins Drink Up intensive overnight mask. It contains Japanese seaweed, avocado oil and mango butter to help moisturise your skin as you sleep.

It’s always worth paying special attention to your night time skincare routine as your skin repairs itself as you sleep and the products you use then will have a better chance of effecting any necessary changes to your skin.

Apply a thin layer of the mask (which looks like moisturising cream) to skin after cleansing and toning and wipe off any excess with a tissue. I recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase (I use a Sheridan) as they are kinder to your skin and your hair. It also means any residue product on the pillowcase can eventually be worked back into your skin as you toss and turn during the night.

To notice a difference I had to use the mask twice a week for at least two weeks but once I’d done that, I did notice that my skin was feeling more moisturised.
