How rude of me! I didn’t wish you all a Happy St. Valentines! Valentine’s day really isn’t have as exciting as people try to make it. Buying stupid cards that say ‘I Wuv You’ and bunches of overpriced flowers then having a 3 course meal at an Italian where everyone tries to out do each other in looking loved up is not my idea of fun. In fact, nothing is my idea of fun..apart from […]

Emu’s used to scare me. I thank Rod Hull for that: Rod had an Emu called…Emu and he was a bitey little thing. Look at what he did to Parky: Scary stuff. But vanity is vanity, and I ended up with a Dremu Emu Oil (30ml, £30). There is quite a lot of explanation about this product and the science behind it on this page, so I won’t bore you by repeating it here. In […]
Ok so I was ranting about Office Shoes a few days ago – well surprise, surprise – I got some emails through: That’s right folks! NONE of the shoes I ordered are in stock – yet they are STILL advertised as in stock on the website. This makes Office Shoes Complete and Utter Crap Crap Crap Douchebags!!!!! Shall I bother emailing the CS? No doubt I will get a generic ‘we don’t have to have […]
I decided to do a haul at Bare Esventuals – the brand is starting ti break through in the UK although I haven’t tried any of their bases. I got their brow get, a brush, prime time and eyeliner sealer. You know I love primers! Barevitamins Prime Time Lid Primer: They Say: Designed especially for use with bareMinerals. This silky eyelid primer is a gentle formula that goes on sheer and lightweight yet provides heavy-duty […]
This new bravissimo got on my nerves. Bravissimo are a company that make bras for big chi-chis. Back in the day, it was hard to get hold of bras if you had a fairly small back and big boobies so Bravissimo really took off. Nothing wrong with that… As a gal with big boobs myself I haven’t bought anything from Bravissimo for a while because: * There shops aren’t very appealing inside. They have lots […]
I got four Jenulence Mineral Eyeshadows in the post in Gold, Apricot Tan, Bronze and Aquamarine: The shades are pigmented and quite fine textured with a slight shimmer to each eyeshadow. They were very easy to use and blend but I’d definately recommend a primer (as with any loose powder eyeshadow) to make sure it stays put. Swatches: The swatches are quite sheer and quite glittery. When applied with a primer they are actually quite […]
Although I have rather soft hands, it won’t always be this way. Our hands like out necks are supposed to be unable to hide our real age…check out Angelina’s paws: Face = GODDESS! Paws = ARRGHHH! That’s why we need to take care of out paws whilst they are still youthful since they take a good bashing day to day. Then I found Gloves in a Bottle. I have heard of this before, but I […]
Lady missed her flight and went a bit nuts. You can’t blame her for expressing herself – I must remember this next time I am in Space NK.
Kikkoman* Soy sauce is the best dressing/condiment in the world! Agree/Disagree? *Kikkoman is a brand of Soy Sauce. There are other brands available.
Office Shoes makes – er, shoes, medium to high price range (well, it is the credit crunch). Occasionally the have some real monstrosities, demonstrated here: *If you own any of these shoes, don’t send me hate mail, just because you like wacky footware. Anyway – I have had problems with Office online before. They normally have the sale shoes on there, and in the past I have made an order with them, waiting 12 days, […]
Made another little haul today (even though I didn’t mean to). I went to Space Nk, who you should know I am not a fan of but they had a sale table. The sale table in Space NK is usually a disgrace – old products that are leaking, covered in dirty finger marks, torn boxes, leaking lids and dented bottles – today was no exception. However – I did salvage 2 goodies from the mess. […]
I went to RMK today to have a look at the Spring Translucence range.. It was a very meh collection – as pretty as the above multi use palette looked it was utterly, utterly unpigmented. The same for the eyeshadows, (at £20 each) were a pointless purchase. However – all is not lost. The lipstick and glosses (all non-LE) were STUNNING. I usually got for Lipstick C which has a gorgeous moisturizing texture. For a […]
I haven’t bought a woman’s magazine for months – they are always full of the same rubbish… “10 ways to spot if he’s cheating” “Are you aging badly?” “The best sex tips of girls EVER” “Does he love you?” “Will you die old and lonely? 10 ways to spot the signs” All the general negative rubbish. But I digress. I bought InStyle which is one of the better magazines for not have loads of adverts […]
Do you like Scarlett? I am quite fond of her and her big chi-chis although I don’t think she is stunning without the help of maquillage…. …Nothing wrong with that. Here are some shots from the ads she’s shot for Dolce & Gabbana Cosmetics: Do you like? I personally really like the over the top glamourous look of these adverts, although I am sure they may make the brand look a little inaccessible to your […]
It’s the end of the rainbow! Read more here. It’s been a hellishly busy week but kinda productive, which I likey! Lots and lots and lots of good stuff coming up so be patient with me. Meanwhile, it’s Valentine’s day tomorrow, so let’s send some loving to people who need it right now: Victims of the Australian Bush Fires – you can donate the money you were going to spend on edible underwear on something […]
This is the completely undefinitive review of the Bafatas 2009 and it completely biased. The “Orange” (note: the worst phone network in history) Bafta is such a boring boring boring awards ceremony and you know half the people there couldn’t really be arsed turning up; its cold and wet in London, no one cares about the stupid award and you have to listen to Jonathan Ross make daft topical jokes that no one out of […]
It’s Sunday and I’m watching repeats of Jamie Oliver’s Naked Chef. His hair was messy, he wasn’t a daddy, and he lisp was a million times worse. Anyway, I did a mini haul from Nars Spring Collection. The colours are fresh and pastely – which isn’t really my thang, but there you go. I was forced convinced by my best make up artist to buy this eyeshadow – it’s Red!: Grenadine is a matte, deep […]
…it’s been a very busy week, hence the lack of posts. However, there are tons of reviews and things coming up, which is good of course. A few reported web problems – it seems that the last template didn’t like Internet Explorer so I have had to change it temporarily to this new, rather cute template. It’s simplier, it may work better for the long term. Any more acessing problems, drop me an email!
Everyone is a little on the mad side, lately, no? First the Bale, not Etta. I used to like Buoyancy now she grates me like a….grater. She’s everywhere. She’s not as annoying as Mariah Carey, but she’s getting there. Anyway, obviously she sang ‘At Last’ for the Presidents inauguration ball. I presumed Etta James was dead, because otherwise, why wouldn’t they ask her to perform it instead since it is kinda her song? Ettas’s not […]
I am so utterly obsessed with Illamasqua that I am in danger to getting bored of the brand before I even get started with it. I can’t look at another brand, I can’t comprehend spending on anything else untill I own every damn shade in their range. I stare at the colours on the website dreamily, imagining which combinations I should own. But never fear…my favourite Make up artist in the whole wide world is […]
