April 2012 Skin Routine:

Neutrogena Multi-Defence® Daily Moisturiser SPF 25 (UVA + UVB)
Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

Trilogy Age Proof Replenishing Night Cream
Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream

I ran out of Pai Echium Organic Eye Cream and went for a cheaper but well-praised option, Nivea's Q10 eye cream. The Neutrogena moisturiser was chosen to due the relatively high SPF (it's difficult to find anything above SPF 10 or 15) and claimed defense from environmental factors and pollutants. It's very light and gives the bare minimum in moisture - therefore I will be ordering some Hada Labo lotion soon to try. I've been using the Trilogy night cream since the end of last year, and I find it excellent due to its blend of omega 3, 6, 9, hyaluronic acid, and various natural oils.

Pyramid Stud

Inspired by Bunney's high-polish pyramid stud accessories.

300 pyramid studs for €2.22 from eBay!

No need for a scalpel or pliers - these are 10mm and the prongs were pushed in (and pried up...) easily with a drawing clip, which happened to be in my pencil case. There are now three Bunney-style studs in a row on my pencil case, and above is my boyfriend's scarf which I decorated in the midst of a computer graphics lab.

Pyramid studs are commonly associated with punk subculture and fashion, but as Bunney has proved, a few well-placed studs can spell polish and minimalism. Now I'm on the hunt for conical gold studs à la Burberry Prorsum:
