Urgh. Clinique

I had posted on Clinique’s Bonus Time a few days ago – I haven’t used their stuff for a long time because their toners and eye make up remover was like splashing acid on my face – anyway, I love the look of the creamy eyeshadows and 8 hour Lipglosses. I went along to my local counter today and it was totally empty. Two shop assistants glared at me. Then they gossiped. Loudly. Very loudly. […]

I’ve lost that Friday Feeling….

How I feel today: I’ve had 3 hours sleep. I have 6 days to find a place to live, and pack my stuff up. Oh, NOW buying that lipstick in every colour doesn’t seem like such a great idea. I don’t have time because I work all day and all evenings. However all is not lost. Kitty, CJ7 says meditate when the world is overwhelming: Things always seem to work out one way or another […]

Customising my ASUS EEE 900 Laptop – Blood, Sweat and Tears…

..but luckily not mine. But more on that later. The Asus EEE 900 is 9 Inches of pure lurve. This super compact laptop as everything you need to stay connected – etc. etc. Basically it means I can type anywhere I want and it weighs about the same as a few of my books that I am hauling around at the moment. Anyway. So I decided my little baby needed some personalization. Now I had […]

How Smash(box)ing!

Remember I got Today’s Special Value for Smashbox! It finally arrived! Here is my favourite look you can create with the box: The model looks gorgeous and glowy but, she clearly has brown liquid liner on. That doesn’t come with the kit does it Smashbox!? Or the mascara she clearly has on! Anyway heres the kit, minus the primer (gave it away) photo op eye brighter (gave it away) and one brush (the plastic cap […]

Clinique Bonus Time and Randomness

I am not a fan of Clinique but I noticed this rather nice GWP from Harvery Nichols, from now untill 21st June. Buy 2 things and get: Buy a third and get: Yes you get a paw. A friend on mine who works on an adjacent counter says that the Clinique girls are the worst for gossiping, for generally being lazy (they don’t have to try too hard when they have these generous GWP’s) and […]

Peachy Me!

Aye, I am jumping on the bandwagon! In light of the trend towards Korean brands I picked up this peachy duo – pore minimizing base and powder: Pros: It smells niceThe base really leaves the skin glowy and poreless (nearly)Its a nice texture to useThe packaging is cute Cons: The base turns you white – I’m a olive girl! I like being olive! Why are you making me white! Anyway it fades after a while […]

SASA or not to SASA?

SASA is a Hong Kong based shop that sells all kinds of wonderful beauty, skincare, haircare goodies and more. The website is a real treasure trove of goodies at low prices – you kind find great beauty tools (really sharp scissors, tweezers, curlers for example) for about £2. However – I filled my basket with treats then realised – customs. I have very little doubt that customs will catch anything over $30 and they keep […]
