Got a terrible migrane girls, can barely see a thing. So no new posts for now whilst I take a nap and sleep it off tonight. Bear with me, I’ve got some gorgeous goodies to show you. A couple of Hedex and Berroca will sort me out for tomorrow!
Ok, so I have actually been gone all weekend – did you notice? Back to business tomorrow but travelling all day today. Did you know you can keep up to date with my innane shenanigans here? Well you can! Tweet Me!
Morning Ladies, Hoping you are good today – we’ve made it half way through the week – how good is that!? I did NOT have a great start to the week but things are looking up! I had the most amazing haul of goodies arrive yesterday (lots of new things to open, test, swatch, review – daunting) and IMATS is confirmed for next weekend! How exciting! I am staying in London for a few days […]
Come, come you have to be quick to make it to the blog sale! Decided on post it on Saturday 9th January at 8pm GMT*. I originally planned it for Sunday, BUT, people have to go to work the day after and are going to bed a bit earlier etc. so on Sat I have a chance to wade through the invoices. Also I post on Saturday there’s still time on Sunday for ladies in […]
Oh no, not another one of these…. I know, I know but I need space. SPACE! One of my resolutions to declutter and as much as I wanted to get rid a lot more of my stash I guess I am still quite sentimental about a lot of it so this is what I am willing to part with for now! And you know what happens. The day you sell your peacock green eyeliner, is […]
Hi ladies Need your help. Compiling a beauty dictionary/glossary. There are so many potential beauty terms out there to include, but aso more obscure ones. I don’t want to miss anything out (although it can be updated all the time of course). So, from the desk of Miss Candy and her Meows, please let me know if you can think of any beauty terms you’d like to be added to the glossary! (Examples: Parabens/Mineral Make […]

Guys, just to wish you all a very Happy New Year and hoping 2010 will be a great one for you as I hope it will be for me. I’m excited! 2010 has a real ring to it and its also the Year of the Tiger. Have I found my inner Tiger? *in a Joey Tribbiani voice* I think so! I felt like I lost all energy and my *Cheryl Cole Voice* mojo at the […]
It’s been quiet on the Candy front as I’ve been catching up on sleep. By catching up I mean 13 hours in bed, which I can conclude, makes me even more sleepy and ten times more groggy than my usual 4 hours! I’ve realised that with this weeks resting, that its important to have a reason to get up in the morning. I moan about work and my projects that keep me insanely busy, but […]
