I think I was a little too harsh on the Prettia Hair Dye the last time I reviewed it. I grew into the subtle hair colour, a subtle warm brown, and the whole process was fairly easy. Prettia is also very economical – my hair is extremely long, and one box of this does me […]
Sleek Cosmetics make make up for dark skinned ladies, or at least that’s how the brand began. Infact they have tons of make up that is suitable for everyone, but have a base range that extends to dark/black skins which si great. I bought their eyeshadow palettes years ago – and pretty damn good they […]
It must be all the pork pies, because I am getting ruddier as time goes by. There are green concealers but I don’t normally have the inclination to start painting vert onto my skin. I have tons and tons of green correctors and concealers, ok? TONS. I don’t use any that regularly. Sorry my typing […]
I have quite a few cameras but I was still looking for an extremely fast and colour true compact. I wanted something I could carry every day without much hassle. Here’s my new camera! Being a Sony it’s pretty expensive for a compact but they have really clear, beautiful lenses. On the other hand I […]

Manners especially, don’t cost anything, so it really gets my goat when people just can’t respond in a human manner; especially when YOU are buying from THEM. Today I’ve realised I’ve […]

Banks 6. Overly soapy soap. Overly soapy soap? What is overly soapy soap? One that is too latherly, too bubbly. […]

A bit like granny pants and tea cosies, Elizabeth Arden is not one of the counters I ever stop at. I used to like 8 hour cream but with so many other fancy goodies around its not something I’ve touched for a while. I was having one of those Friday afternoon strolls after work and […]
So I was browsing for (new) undey-wears on eBay and what do I find? The Faveo Freedom Bra! They look like cups but are made for ladies with big chi-chis. They bascially stick on and hold them up so that you can theoretically, wear strapless, backless clothes, even if you have gazungas. Video: You know […]
