What love looks like


Have you got the Friday feeling? I have! Although I am working all weekend, tis ok. That’s right, this is one of those random posts… So I was thinking, after Bale what other man is worthy? Wentworth Miller? Thankgod for growing up, eh? Then I started thinking about Paul Newman….rumours has it that he is very ill, has been treated for cancer and has gone home, allegedly, to spend his last months. Paul as a […]

Japanese Hair Styles


I am still quite old school when it comes to getting my hair cut…whilst I trust my hairdresser 100%, I still love the ritual of finding and cutting (or printing these days) a photograph of a nice hair cut or colour I’ve found. There’s a fair assortment of these kinds of magazines in the UK, but I’ve found them pretty lame. The same old same old images crop up time after time with only a […]

Kath & Kim US? So wrong!


For making me live thorough 10 years of the awfulness that is Neighbours and Home & Away, every. single. day. of. my. life. after school, the Australians with have come up with a funny and clever series, Kath & Kim. So Wiki says: Kath & Kim stars Jane Turner as Kath Day-Knight, a cheerful 50-something divorcee currently in a happy relationship with her fiancé (and then husband), the prissy Kel Knight. She deals with her […]

Not a wimp!


So I went anyway – butterflies in the tummy ‘an all. It wasn’t bad – well it was bad, but it was bearable. The upperlip – ouch! The lady told me the upperlip is the worst “so lets start there” and it did feel like someone had a very sharp fork and was poking me in the face in it…but it was fine. Damn, I almost enjoyed the pain. Brows are a breeze if you […]



So this was supposed to be a post all about how I went and had my first threading experience – brows and upperlip you see. I have never had my brows done professionally before because I don’t trust people. I don’t trust over eager beauticians anyway. But you know at some point you got to let go. So a few hours before my appointment, I start to read up on threading especially the upperlip. Then […]

Suqqu me!


I have been waiting forever for my Suqqu’s to arrive – a friend of mine, great friend but terribly unreliable was supposed to hand them over…about 7 months ago. Instead she got on a plane to China to teach English. Anyway her bro kindly dropped of a lovely bag full of goodies for me yesterday and inside were the long awaited Suqqu’s! My first impressions were – how sturdy it is, how heavy. I’ve been […]

Pretty Pretty Albion Moisture Chiffon Base & LE Case


Possibly the prettiest compact I have EVER owned – Albion Moisture Chiffon’s LE case is a deep purple with gems and a stunning design on the front.  So beautiful I don’t want to use it – but then what would be the point of having it? The base itself I have heard is the top selling powder foundation in Japan. I have never tried anything else by Albion and this base was not cheap (cost […]

Second by second Olympic handover coverage


Sooooo my worst nightmare, Boris Johnson has appeared, JACKET OPEN. You can’t miss him and his big fat gut because he’s the ONLY MAN on the stage with his white shirt popping out. He can’t wave a flag properly either. *cringe*. You only have yourself to blame London, you thought it would be funny voting him in didn’t you? Well we up North will take no responsibility for him. Boris never did his jacket up, […]
