So off I went to Aveda today to pick up my Birthday freebie. Aveda have a special offer, if you join their club you get a card, which offers rewards the more you spend, and a freebie on your birthday. Last year I got a purfume which was oily and was not much of a scent. This year I got there and the girl tried to push the shower gel on me. “Seriously, the shower […]
Poor John Sergent. One of my favourite BBC reporters has been forced out of the TV show, Strictly Come Dancing. You get a load of has-been celebrites, desperate to revive their careers…well some of them, not all of them. Rachel Stevens (yes, remember her?) for example, Jodie Kidd (after the cocaine scandal), loads of sports *stars* i’ve never heard of. This is a golden ticket to some quick publicity and a modelling deal with Marks […]
I first came across Lush owned B Never Too Busy to Be Beautiful in London a few years ago. I loved the boudoir style of the shop and bought a product or two back then. It was a cream eyeshadows in a brown – green – nice colour but the product was horrible, creasy and slow to dry. I decided to take a look at the website again today and they definately have some very […]
I am eagerly awaiting the Multiple Bronzers from Nars! It comes in three shades for light, medium and dark skins. Tuomota is for light skins, Malaysia is for medium tones and Rapa Nui is a rich bronze for darker skins. How cool are these!!! I think I will be a Malaysia girl. Can’t wait to try it!
I will soon run out of vitriol and get back to the make up stuff, but first I am to moan about Additions.com. 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 a £50 rice cooker. Within a week, the baby refused to turn on. I tried and tried, changed the fuse […]
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 what else can MAC think of in terms of collaborations. Here are some of my suggestions. MAC loves PAT BUTCHER* […]
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 the US/Hong Kong/Japan – ANYWHERE! 1. The threshold for customs fee for goods from outside the EU (Europe) is £18. […]
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; a Nars duo is £22.50 on it’s own and a Chanel quad or Dior is normally around £34. I also […]
