Buy-Ciate-Mini-Mani-Manor-Advent-Calendar-Style-Nail-Polish-Gift-Set-John-Lewis-3.jpg

Let’s talk advent calendars. I used to have a phobia of them because I always  got the extremely cheap and nasty chocolate ones from the Poundshop and almost never bothered eating the chocolate. Anyway, this year I have a few advent calendars on my wall. I am hoping this will become a nice family tradition!  […]

Merry Christmas One & All!

Merry Christmas and Good Tidings to One & All! I hope everyone will eat lots and get lots of presents (I spy a few beauty goodies for me – peeking, moi?). My lot have quite a food extravaganza coming up! This was my turkey from last year, just a tiny thing made for two: As […]

EOTD, Festive Green & Red

Red & Green should never be seen…so they say. There are some nice tutorials on You Tube of red and green eyes, but there’s no denying that those two colours together could spell disaster. But hey, it’s Christmas, it gets dark early, so let’s give it a shot! I decided to go for a green […]

Boots.com Online Sale Launched

As if to annoy every person who paid full price for their Christmas goods, like, yesterday, Boots.com (UK) have launched their half price sale online. Boots usually runs a very good 3 for 2 offer at Christmas and since I tend to study the catalogue I can spot a free in the ‘3’ for ‘2’ […]

Free Gift with Rimmel UK at Boots

Spend £7.99 on Rimmel and get a nifty free Make Up Set worth £15: This is exclusive to Boots. Meanwhile, the Rimmel Website has a nice make up tutorial with some blue eyeshadow and nude lips for Christmas.

JK Rowling’s Handwritten Book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard

This is OT, but besides Make Up, I have another love; Books! Although I never got further than the first Harry Potter book, I am well aware that the series has been a revolution for children’s fantasy books! There has always been the classics, like Narnia and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy. However – […]

Ideas for Christmas?

Ok girls, its one week or so before Christmas and I am out of ideas of what I want! I have all the games (computer) I want, and practically all the Make Up….say it isn’t so! Ok so I have enough Make Up for this lifetime and the next but I am stumped as the […]

Maquillage & Majolica Majorca Palettes Review!

It feels like a life time ago since Majolica Majorca released the Frozen Princess range. I love the Majolica Majorca website. Each time they use a cardboard 2D style picturebook, in a stop motion animation style. The amount of work that goes into it, the music, the design in incredible. Anyway – the actual products […]

Shu Uemura Gold Mode Collection

I normally go nuts for anything Shu but I am not loving this years Christmas collection: The model looks good (why does Shu ALWAYS use western models?) but the actual product range is so-so. The packaging is heavy grooved gold – think of Estee Lauder, and there are two eyeshadow/blush duo’s: The other set has […]

Lovely Blogs

I was completely inspired by Karen at the gorgeous Make Up & Beauty Blog. Karen did her 43 Make Up Items she was thankful for, followed by the 43 non make up related things she was grateful for. I wish we had something similar in the UK! (But maybe something other than Turkey. I big […]

Pupa Christmas Cards-cum-Eyeshadow Palettes

How cute are these!!! From Pupa, these little cardboard cards have a Christmas design on the front, a mirror inside and three co-ordinated eyeshadow shades inside. I have tested them and they are very soft and are lovely quality! So you see, you have a perfectly useable little compact and you can inscribe your own […]

RMK Christmas Palette 2007

RMK have released this lovely palette for 2007 Christmas. I’ve found palettes of previous years to be lacking in quality, or of having bizarre choices in terms of colours, but this set is gorgeous. Note, the stripping of my purchase (I SO didn’t want to remove the gift wrap….but I’ll do it for you.) You […]

MAC Christmas Goodies

Ok, Ok, so I am totally late with this, but you know, I thought a lot of the MAC limited edition stuff would have sold out by now but most of the ranges are still in stock. What is really annoying is the sheer volume of collections coming out and how they are spacing them […]

YSL White Gold Collection

So I mentioned how the Lavshuca Winter Palettes were meh and not really usable. So here’s a collection I picked up which I didn’t expect to but really really like – YSL’s Whie Gold/Love collection. This is the whole collection: Pretty huh, but very typical of YSL, glamourous and lots of pesky metal that gets […]

Meh Meh Meh is not like Lavshuca

I recieved Lavshuca’s Winter Palettes this week from Adambeaty (Always excellent service) and well….erm…it’s not that great. Lavshuca is such a lush brand, full of affordable make up and the eyeshadow palettes are normally full of nice colours. Anyway this is what they look like: The Cases (cardboard): It comes empty – So you can […]
