Screw You!: get’s it wrong, again


I will soon run out of vitriol and get back to the make up stuff, but first I am to moan about Additions is an online catalogue store that sells all the usual stuff, clothes, shoes, kitchen and household goods. Whenever I order something substantial they screw it up. The first time I ordered […]

Dame Edna & MAC Collaboration!


I thought this was a super cool collaboration between MAC and Dame Edna… Even I have to admit it looks super cute and that beauty powder looks like a must have for me! It’s out in December just after Xmas apparently.  But now that we’ve done the dame and we have Hello Kitty coming up […]

Customs Charge Warning UK!


Boo hoo. I got a parcel worth $30 and had £11.21 fees added from customs! £8.00 of it was “handling fees”. I think that the reason this has happened is because of the exchange rate – so whereas $30 used to be £15, its now more like £20. So remember this ladies when buying from […]

Quick mini haul – Guerlain Black Liquid Liner and Givenchy


After falling in love yesterday with Givenchy I had to seek out the smikey LE palette: I really do prefer this palette to the lighter palette: But what do we do about the dots? How can we just rub them out when they make the palette SOOOO beautiful?! At £27.50 they really are good value; […]

Ciate Hat Boxes


I mentioned how good the value of the Ciate hatbox sets are the other day – £20 from ASOS!. I ordered both and this is how the sets come: Classic Collection nail colours (Used Megan’s nails as swatches so no complaining about how messy they are!): Paprazzi- red black Dangerous Affair- deep blood red Boudoir- […]

Quick Nars Make Over


I did a quite dash around and picked up some long time lemmings today. Nars have a new LE palette (£37): It looks a bit odd but it’s super hot! Shades include: – Kilimanjaro I (opalescent gold) – Bohemian Gold II (iridescent copper) – Surbaya II (chestnut) – Himalayas (iridescent pink) – Ondine (plum with […]



Mmmm Bacon Bagels. But I digress. Yesterday was a crazy haul day – for beauty and for clothes. It’s funny how problematic buying clothes online really is. On one hand I like it, because I can see everything in front of me – have you seen how busy some of the shops get? But then […]

Shu = Meh


Maybe I’m just a cranky cow, but I made my way to the Shu Uemura counter today to lookat the Mika Christmas collection which looks super stunning online. Only 2 palettes were left: This one looks dull but it’s actually quite nice and the third colour across, a rose bronze is utterly stunning. Winter Sakura […]

Screw you!: Dodgy Royal Mail


It ain’t like this anymore As if it’s not bad enough with the crappy exchange rate – 1 GBP = 1.47793 USD, people!!!  I’m getting screwed over by Royal Mail too! Five lost parcels in 2 months.  From Thailand, Hong Kong, the US, Japan and Blighty. Either I am just cursed, or someone at Royal […]

Ciate Hat Box at ASOS


I know, I know, ASOS are on my hate list, but compared to some of the deadbeats I’ve bought from lately, they are a boon. What I’ve noticed from surfing their site lately is that the prices are very erratic.  One day I added a headband into my cart and it was £8.  The next […]

I’m a celebrity GET ME OUT OF HERE!


Hurrah! I’m a celebrity starts on Sunday in the UK. The contestants are CRAP. We have a man who used to be a police officer. We have a WAG. She is not a pretend model, like Coleen, she’s not a pretend fashion designer, like Victoria, she’s not a pretend singer, like Cheryl. She is nothing […]

Screw You! : Cafe Rouge Yuk


I’ve been to Cafe Rouge about 4 times and everytime either the service has been very very slow or the food has been poor. Every year I give people another chance. So I went to Cafe Rouge for dinner tonight – I went for luxury. I had a 10oz Steak at a rather pricey £16 […]

Screw You!: Crap Customer Service at


Do not shop with these crooks! I bought a Babyliss large 38mm curler 7 days ago and nada, nothing. I am sick to death of people selling things that don’t exist, or that they don’t actually have in stock. Here’s a clue for you. When you are selling something, make sure you have it in […]

Screw you! : Crap Service Top Shop Online


Top Shop has now taken over ASOS on the top of my crap online clothes shops. I’ve not shopped in Top Shop for YEARS. Because although they do have some nice things, I find it horrible overpriced, when infact it’s quite similar to Primark, and there’s something about the store layout and 15 year old […]

RMK Christmas Palette


The RMK Christmas Palette 2008 is released tomorrow in the UK. It is 9,500 Yen, which according to my XE coverter makes it an eye watering £68? Surely not? I can’t imagine many people will plonk down £70 for a palette, gift or not. I am thinking more like the £50 mark, which is still […]

Oooh Guerlain! Jeu de Dames


How gorgeous is this model? I love her hair: Guerlain is one of those brands I worshipped as a teen and the Terracotta Bronzer is one of the first major purchases I’ve made. The Jeu de Dames Play Lip Palette can give you three metallic shades: Two LE eyeshadow palettes – but dayum, far too […]

Hello Kitty for MAC in Feb 2008


So the evil empire, the blood sucking people at MAC have finally done what I predicted they’d do years ago. Release a MAC & Hello Kitty Range. It goes without saying that even I, a fervent non-Mac lover will have to indulge in this one. Hell, I’ll take the day of work and queue outside […]

Suqqu LE Christmas Palette


Due to the awful exchange rate and a missing parcel from Ichibankao (I know!! it happens so rarely but it’s happened, sob sob) I am on a minimal international buy (well…there is a Facial Shop haul on its way and a Adam’s beauty and a…anyway that’s beside the point). Boy was I lucky when I […]

Dior Sparkle Top Coat Lipgloss 2008 Christmas


Dior have really captured my heart, it seems, this Christmas. Almost as much as this man: This LE sparkle gloss is just booti-ful: It’s filled with little micro sparkles, of all kinds of multi colours. Good in its own or course on top of a lipstick. I know there are a million sparkly clear glosses […]
