Hi guys! Just a quick blog sale update. Thanks to everyone who purchased and paid quickly. I have a very very busy week ahead and so does my right hand man, Mr C which means we have limited time in the evenings to pack everything! This being said I am hoping to get all parcels out on Monday 6th February. We have around 75 packages to pack so bear with us, because I check every […]
Hello guys! In case I don’t get a chance later I wanted to say Happy New Year, and have a bit of a chit chat because the blog has been running on skeleton mode the last week! Are you excited about 2012? I am – I have a really good feeling about the year ahead, with lots of work plans and personal plans cooking in the kitchen. There’s also The Olympics and the Queen’s Diamond […]
Mr C has done his own little project on the blog – over in the Gallery you will find all the full resolution scans for Mary Quant (more brands and page scans to come). View the gallery here. Feedback is welcome!
You know I have been so busy this year that I completely missed the blog’s 4th birthday, which was on October 3rd. I can’t believe it’s been four years since I started blogging. Things have changed a lot for beauty blogging, but I still like to keep it simple. I also still have lots to say but hope to try different things with it soon. When I have more time! It’s also my birthday today. […]
Wow! It’s the end of October already! I am super busy this week so I won’t be dressing up or anything but have a great Halloween guys! What are you doing tonight?!
If you like cats, want to get to know my cats, want some cat tips, find funny cat videos and cat photos hop over to Cats That Blog which is new, and a work in progress! I’ve had the domain for a long long time and have only now had the chance to work on it. Kitty demands you to go and take a look! Looking for contributors for my various blogs – will post […]
It’s Bank Holiday Monday in the UK which means EVERYONE IS OFF….actually no, some poor folk still have to work but the rest of us lazy bums get the day off. It is Candy Mama’s 50th today (Happy Birthday!) and I am taking her out and about, doing some sightseeing, shopping, and taking her to the hairdressers because she’s got a mullet going on. Also this week I am having a bit of a rest […]
Ach. No sooner had I said that our web hosting woes were over did we have more problems. Finally I believe everything is back up as are my emails. Unfortunately if you don’t hear from me in the next few days you may have to recontact me. We moved from choppy Dreamhost, who kept crashing, to Mocha Host who had awful customer service – reminded me of talking to a sales person in the BT […]
Oh dearie me. We’ve had technical difficulties with the site from last Friday to Today and it might still be a little shaky as our site switches over to a new server. Hence there has been no posts the last 4 days and I have limited access to my emails. If you have tried to get in touch and not heard from me, don’t hesitate to try again! If you are having trouble viewing the […]
Sorry guys, had quite a hectic weekend and a big week ahead so no posts today. Oh, apart from this one! But lots of nice things coming up. This is my cat CJ. She represents how I and the rest of the British working public are feeling on a Monday morning: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Just 10 more minutes…..
You may have already noticed the little logo at the corner of the header, with a link to Cosmetic Candy Shop! We’ve been building it bit by bit for ages and bug testing – it seems to be working fine so I officially announce it as – OPEN! Here’s the stuff we sell. There’s quite a lot so you may be clicking around for a bit! There’s a free gift when you spend over £5 […]
Just a quick note to let you know that I am changing hosts this weekend, (a bit of a last minute decision but I felt that Hostgator was letting me down too much for the price of the hosting!) so there will inevitably be a few jerks as things fall into place. Some of the latest posts and comments may disappear, as may some photographs so we will do everything we can to retrieve them. […]
Thanks so much for all your feedback on the blog redesign. We are taking comments in heed and fixing what we can as we go along. As I said in the last update post, I have a few other surprises to spring on you in the upcoming weeks so it is a very busy time! I am also finally going to get round to answering comments very shortly! I haven’t had time but I will […]
Guys, I decided the old blog design was a bit messy, so I hope you like this new fresh look. We’ve added new functions and things but please let me know in the comments if: a. Anything is broken b. If something that you previously used is missing c. If you can think of any features you’d like added Here’s to a fresh start. x
Thanks to you if you purchased from the last blog sale a few weeks ago and this is just a note to let you know your item has been sent. UK ladies should already have theirs although there was the extremely long holiday weekends holding things back! International ladies please give it 2 weeks from this date for your parcel to arrive. I have all tracking numbers so if your parcel is taking excessively long […]
Mr C is really really really old today and I wanted to wish him a Happy Birthday because he’s such a narcissist he loves to be mentioned on the blog. This is for you, especially 4.05: The rest of you, please stick with it. The last 40 seconds is a musical gift from God to our ears. I’m off to the Aquarium today and hopefully the Folli Follie shop. How cool is it that Gaile […]
Due to the fact that I seem to be doing relatively more dumb stuff than the next person, I have added a new category, called Oh No I Didn’t! Coming soon: Bikram Yoga, Getting a Perm and Brazillian Waxing. Oh yeah. Hardcore.
Happy Valentine’s Ladies! How on earth are we already halfway through February!? Anyway have fun on Valentine’s day, whether it be with your partner or another loved one of choice! What are you up to tonight?!
Ladies & Gents, Whilst some of you have been in touch to say you got your xmas prizes, a few ladies have also told me they haven’t. Some of the prizes were out of stock after Christmas so the PR companies are catching up and assure me they will be on their way shortly. I posted out a batch myself weeks ago which seems to have gone AWOL but since 2 ladies have confirmed their […]
Too much celebrating going on at the moment, because today is Chinese New Year and it’s the Year of the Rabbit! How I wish I was in Asia celebrating! Traditionally, unmarried folk like myself get money from elders, but as I’ve got older, people are more likely to say “Do you seriously want me to give you some money?” (Yes, mother). So tell me, will you be celebrating Chinese new year? I usually spend time […]
