Nigella Lawson should measure stuff properly

UPDATE: The boyfriend has insisted that I cover his earlier cock up by announcing that he is now Heston Blumenthal. Nigella’s Recipe is: 100g Caster Sugar 4 Tablespoons of Golden Syrup 1 and half tsp Bicarbonate of Soda Boyf says 2 tsp of soda and 2 tablespoons of syrup works better and indeed, I am […]

HQ Hair are crap, crap, crap

Because shopping online isn’t stressful enough, HQ Hair makes it much worse.  Despite the fact it is a pretty large company with a strong online presence, HQ Hair has never, ever ever ever had outstanding – or even good customer service. Well I am seriously annoyed this time.  I have been waiting and waiting for […]

24 Brow Tattoo

dscn8811_s1

I have naturally dark fairly full brows that don’t need penciling in. Feeling left out and wanting some free scissors I purchased K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 24h Limited Set from Ichibankao: 24 Hours! Free scissors! Cool! The pen is not refillable or clickable – it looks just like a felt tip and it is very […]

Chanel Gold 2008 Collection

dscn8818_s

I love Gold. I love Gold. Unless its a Gold tooth. Or a Gold Digger. Or Gold Jewellery. Then I’m more of a platinum girl myself. Otherwise, I love Gold! Chanel’s little gold collection features 2 new nail polishes, eyeliner, some new lipsticks and 3 new lipglosses and a highlighter. I already have buyers regret […]

Why, J Lo, why?

spl51968_018

Jenny from the block – why do you have so little taste? Why? That ugly lipstick! That mouth! She is now my least favourite celebrity mouth – yes, she goes above Keira Knightly. And this – I know, its nothing new but – WHY!? Don’t they look in the mirror? Of course she looks 100% […]

Stupid QVC

Or is it stupid me? In the email I got I said the first show was at 12, 2, 4…..so I presumed it meant PM. But no it was AM. Please, pray, do tell, who is stupid enough to watch a QVC show at 2am, 4am on a Sunday Morning! I woke up at 12 […]

Smashbox on QVC UK Sunday 28th September 2008

Everytime, like a sucker, I buy the Smashbox special value kit – SUCKER. Because I only ever like 2/10 items. Still I was excited to see the email from QVC as this time, the special value contains the Halo Powder which is a whopping £36 quid on its own – I am guessing the special […]

Man Friday: Wentworth Miller

wentworth_miller-1

Prison Break is one of the worst shows in terms of dialogue, plot and acting in the WORLD after Hollyoaks.  But there is a reedeming light in the show and he is called Wentworth Miller. Who the hell is called Wentworth anyway?  It doesn’t matter when you look like this: Wentworth has the right mix […]

Make Up Bag, the Tardis!

dscn8757_s

Every now and then I feel the need to change make up bags. I always look for something not too big, not to small, expandable, washable, cute…. So I found this: Its not tooooo big *by make up junkie standards But look what I can get in it! 1. Jill Stuart Powder Foundation 2. Armarni […]

SANA Make Essence Concealer Update

Quite a few ladies have asked me where you can buy this cute concealer – I have asked Kelly at Ichi and you can now buy it for $15.50 here. It only comes in one shade (please see previous post) and is a mellow banana cream shade. It works on my skin (NC35, so fairly […]

Buying from Ebay – when is NEW, new?

dscn8802_s

I gave up selling on Ebay the day that I got a £180 fee for selling relatively few items, and then I was told I wasn’t allowed to leave negative or neutral feedback for buyers.  Sure, some buyers are great.  But some are vindictive too.  Instead I use it for buying and rarely selling and […]

I hate Primark

Yes I do. Incase you don’t know what Primark is, its a cheap budget fashion store in the UK.  It used to be naff as hell, but fair play, it now produces a lot of on trend fashion with a quick turnaround and lots and lots of choice.  As a result it is ALWAYS busy.  […]

Nars Makeover; Skin Tips etc.

dscn8770_s

For no reason other than boredom, I went to my Nars counter the other day for a make over. I have been eyeing up Blade Runner for ages…a dark forest green with a copper. My SA, Leena at Nars is amazing. She smells nice too (Nars Monoi Oil I’m told – its expensive – £42 […]

SANA Extra Thick Liquid Eyeliner

dscn8738_s1

SANA has a rather nifty eyeliner, which gives you thick a thick liner a la Amy Winehouse- The brush resembles a slightly flattened Calligraphy brush. For that reason it does give a thicker line but it depends very much on how you hold it.  Just use the tip and you will have a thin line. […]

SANA Make Essence Concealer

dscn8734_s

Ok, ok I admit it.  I wanted this product badly because there’s a sleepy bear on the front. SANA is a Japanese brand with some real gems in its collection. This is one of them – oh yes. I’ve tried quite a few random dark circle goods from Japan; and I disliked most of them.  […]

Perfect Peach! Nars Barbarella Lipstick

cuar02_jolie08071

So Angelina looks divine in this photo, no? her lips look perfect and I have been lusting after a similar look and my favourite artist (weirdly enough) gives me peach lips when I was thinking peach in my head! More of that makeover soon. But I have found the most perfect peach: It’s hot.  Isn’t […]

Clinique Make Up Brush Cleaner

dscn8727_s

I have a few different ways of cleaning my make up brushes. I have a Paula Dorf brush shampoo with is lathery, but hard to wash out. Its good for a deep clean but impractical for the amount of brushes I have – it takes too long. I use Isopropyl Alcohol a lot but this […]

Clinique Bonus Time Sept 2008 at Selfridges

selfridges-co

Clinique have one of the worst counters out there for a. Unhelpful staff b. Er…unhelpful staff? But they do have some excellent bonus time offers and a few gems, like their Blemish Gel. The latest offer at Selfridges is worth a mention as it comes with a super snazzy little bag: They say: Your other […]

712_apothecary

Space NK Apothecary is an upmarket beauty and skincare store in the UK.  So why don’t I live there?  There are two stores in my city, easily accessible, yet I rarely step foot in the store – in fact its my last choice of shop to buy my goodies. Here are some reasons why; Note […]
