You know how you have a hit list of products, things that you’ve wanted to buy and try for a while but they’re things you put off buying until crack? Well That Gal, a primer from Benefit is one of those items for me. I’ve always thought that it was mega cute and I love the idea of glowy luminous skin, so here it is: Inside the packaging (is that New York?) is a little […]
I’m in a peachy mood today, so out comes the VIP lip gloss from Etude House in Peach Syrup: This is actually quite a new gloss I bought from eBay for just £6 (there are some really excellent sellers of Korean makeup on there). This lipgloss comes in very cute packaging and comes in two variations – 1 & 2 (I chose the peachier version). They smell lovely – of peaches! They are medium pigmented, […]
The problem with gift hunting is that sometimes one can end up with things for ones-self. This has been happening a little bit too often, and I ended up with some nice bits from Velvet Noir! I love turquoise. Its my favourite stone by far and this necklace (Tauri! It has a name!) also has Black Onyx, White Jade, Carnellian.

So I am sort of addicted to Armani Lipsticks at the moment. I’ve bought a few different shades in a few different textures in the last month or so (a lipstick is the perfect pick me up, eh?). I spotted this red ages ago, but I didn’t want to buy yet *another* red lipstick I’d wear once, and I would wear only in the bedroom (no, not even the kitchen. The cats would point and […]

Ever since I went to the spa I have have been more interested in body care goodies, especially scrubby, oily, salty, creamy concoctions. Now – I do like scrubs but I have been looking for the one. I find a lot of them quite harsh (especially when there’s just chunks of sugar or salt in them. I’ve tried one that was just like rock salt. Ouch.) I was sent this Wild Organics Marshmallow Sugar Scrub […]
