Inspired FOTD: Green Make Up Look from Wicked the Musical….Elphaba

Blame Ugly Betty Everything about the Musical, Wicked, made me want to hate it. The cheesy excerpts of songs from the show that I had heard on Ugly Betty, the fact that Elphaba’s name comes from The Wizard of Oz creator, L. Frank Baum’s name (L.F.B = El-pha-ba = cheesy and corny). I booked tickets […]

FOTD, Inspired By Series No. 1: Guitar Hero

Starting today, I’m going to start doing FOTD’s that are inspired by…stuff. Stuff, since this is me we’re talking about could be anything. A chocolate hob-nob, a sprig of coriander, an extractor fan…..maybe not an extractor fan. Someone asked me once if my middle name was extractor….but I digress. No. 1: Inspired by Guitar Hero […]

Revealed! Beauty Invention

Last week I asked you to guess that this was… It is… A two sided mirror which is supposed to make application of eye make up easier (check the results from the side etc.) Do I find it useful? Absolutely not!

Cute Haul of the day: Care Bear Stare!

We’re you a fan of the Care Bears? I was – my favourite was Wish A Lot Bear (the green one): When in reality, Grumpy is more my style: I saw this cute lipbalm and had to have it – its raspberry flavoured: The lipbalm compact is actually quite big – about 3 inches across. […]

My Stash – updated

I did a post on my stash a while ago but I noticed the photos are missing from it because the stupid hosts I moved from *A Small Orange – cough* lost a large portion of my image files. And I had deleted them from my PC. So I decided to do another post on […]

Guess the beauty invention!

You know I love to find beauty inventions from around the world, so riddle me this – what is this thing? Let me know your guesses in the comments! What is it and what is it for? 😀

Sunday Chit Chat: Random Haulages

I don’t just buy make up I don’t need! – I love to buy gifts for people and crafty arty things. Anyway this some random bits I bought this week. I had a hellish trip to Primark at lunchtime this week. It was awful. The Primark crowd is an unusual one; a mixture of nutters, […]

Hello, McFly! Dealing with negative comments on your blog & the socially inept

computer-frustration1.jpg-jpeg-image-570x337-pixels.jpg

Two things made me write this post – getting more vitriolic* comments of late and this court case. (If you are a blogger, do read. There are some real implications for bloggers everywhere). *I’m surprised its taken this long considering my somewhat forthright views on Amanda Holden. So let’s begin my rambling… Free For All […]

He knows me so well

So I have been procrastinating all week, surfing the internet the handbags when I should have been doing some work. The other half just sent me this email with a graph – I think he’s trying to tell me something: The internet is an extension of me, and I am an extension of it. Apart […]

I love my carbs but this is just…impractical…

strapya-world-bread-from-strapya-oven.jpg

I love looking at Strapya World, a rather eccentric shop based in Japan which has lots of cute, weird, funny, useful, useless goodies, (specializing in phone charms but also other bits and pieces.) I spotted a cute bread based phone charm range – doughnuts! bun rolls! bagels! danish! and my favourite, white bread! Then I […]

My arch nemesis has arrived: Tan-go Tan by Tango

untitled

I have a friend who is a jolly shade of bright orange after using too much fake tan.  We were shopping for foundation for her and there came the realisation that there were no foundations in luminous, bright orange (unless you want to buy collection 2000 – hey that stuff turns orange on my skin). […]

Enjoying the sun?

It’s all warm here! I do like warm, bright weather because it just makes me feel more alert and active, although one must remember to be SPF’ed, hair, skin, lips and I always feel like an idiot in sunglasses, but I need them or my vision turns into bright beaming halos for the next few […]

Scared of the Cosmetic Counter?

Reader Jess commented on the Illamasqua video I posted, and said: I need to shake up my makeup! I always feel a bit scared of the counter and everyone has such dramatic make up I feel too much like a wall flower to go there Jess is not alone – I am a hardened make […]
