Weekly Wishlist: March 22nd 2010


This weeks wishlist is: 1. Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer 2. Trish McEvoy Palette & Eye Base I am really into Trish McEvoy at the moment – I really want the Little Black Card Champagne Truffles kit, the Demure Sparke Eye Base and the Luminizer Pen.

Bit wasteful though… 3. Put it into storage….along with 1,293 items… 4. Give […]

I was too busy typing to change the channel so I watched Faith Hill and Jennifer Hudson sing – now I am confused. Why is it so big? This is American Football right? TOH tells me American football is “rugby but for girls”, does he lie?

Beauty is danger (ous)?


An article over at The Daily Mail got me thinking about whether beauty products are ‘safe’ or at least, as beneficial as we think they are. I have turned into a raving mad ball of itchies lately – my skin and scalp are going to pot and methinks and overload of products may have something to do with it. Now, you know the Daily Mail loves to speak in hyperbole: Yet just this week, research […]
