So while in New York, I am enjoying all the culture available in the city, and all it’s fashionable heritage too. Where I am staying, I found this wonderful book on Norman Parkinson photograph’s. His images are so iconic, timeless and most are still so inspiring today.
The amazing make up artist Charlotte Tilbury teamed up with Parkinson’s (family) on creating a limited edition make up range with his photos. Her products are already so desirable. But now it’s even more so… (Personally I am desperate for the 1975 Red lipstick!)

You can see it in vintage clothing you can find today, some dresses are so tiny at the waist. What happened? We got more hormones? Weird, well I cant complain my waist is quite small for today’s standard.

She talks about it in her book, and tells her side of the story to this trip.
