It’s not over! I have a HUAGE box of samples – mainly from Shu Uemura, RMK, Givenchy, Lancome, SKII, Chanel, Dior, Shiseido etc. that keeps tripping me up and I am going to give a lucky dip selection, and let me tell ya, I give generous handfuls each to FIVE random commenters below. If your lucky you can have have UK toffees and pick and mix too. Just copy & paste: 1. What would you […]

The end is nigh…

…to 2008 that is.  Just as well.  I am all ready for a fresh start, and then when it all goes wrong, fresh start no. 2 in February (Chinese New Year!).  Won’t be going out tonight, it’s FAR too cold – so it’s a huge family cosy up for me. Television is awful on this side of the world.  Apart from Creature Comforts, everything else has been a pile of rubbish. I am so behind […]

Shopping99 Tutorial


A reader requested this months ago – been so buy I haven’t had the chance to do but here it is! Shopping99 is a Taiwan based website with tons and tons of goodies to buy. If you can read Chinese, you’ll be fine – if you can’t, then the site is vast and confusing since the layout is quite messy too. So this is how I figured things out, the hard way! Shopping99 houses a […]

Creme De La Mer Haulage


I’m sure that the older we get, the less interesting our gifts get. I did get random goodies from La Mer, which is my newest obsession. Luckily, their range is limited and there aren’t any cosmetics apart from foundation and powder otherwise I’d be crying all the way to the bank. La Mer is expensive. The counter is sparse and usually has a grumpy middle aged woman with terrible make up and fairly wrinkly skin […]

Was blind, but now, I see


If my blog were a kitten, it would look like this. Poor blog.  Changing over hosts was not quite as easy as I had thought – so we’ve been off for days, comments have been disappearing, pictures aren’t showing up, some people can see certain posts, some people can’t – ARGH! and I have to put up with this hideous template for now. Because we were off over the weekend, here are the competitions you […]
