I haven’t blogged in a month, so I thought I should explain why… My Grandmother (actually my mums’ mum but we call her Gran) collapsed back in March – initially thought to have been just a fall, it actually turned out that she had suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, and by the time I saw her in hospital, she was paralysed down one side of her body, unable to speak or open her eyes, but she could […]
If you told me a few years ago that I would nurse my son until he was 2 years old before he would himself voluntarily give up the boob, I would’ve laughed at you. Not because I am anti-breastfeeding or have any weird feelings about it, but because it was a completely unknown territory for me and I presumed that it was a grin-and-bear-it experience for the first 6 months of your child’s life before […]
Oh yes, today kids I have to mention 2 special ladies who are have birthdays, on the 12th and 13th of October. Kimi is 3 today. Don’t be fooled by that smile – she’s got a really hard headbutt: Megan, Star of Youtube is 11 tomorrow.
Baby Gomez in now just over three months. Baby G has inherited something from her Western blood it seems – long long eyelashes.
So a few days ago I saw a tester for an eyeshadow in a store called Superdrug, which sells the more low end cosmetic ranges (but prices are slowly creeping up). The brand, Sleek, is known for producing cosmetics for dark skins. I spotted a 12 shadow eyeshadow palette, and became obsessed. The colours were rich, pigmented, strong and metallic and soft. There was a problem…there were none in stock. So I was on a […]
My lovely little cousin, star of You Tube, has has become suprisingly demanding since turning seven, has made another video for all of you. I left her alone to do the video and returned to find glitter all over my Apple Mac and bed covers and to find that she had done a face paint tutorial but not pressed record. “Don’t press anything Megan” “Ok” *Click* Anyway I hope you enjoy, because now I have […]
After the success of her first video, Megs has decided to make her much anticipated second video. No more crushing my Nars Blushers though – I found some of my cheapy make up for her to play with. Excuse my crappy editing, blame Apple Mac software for confusing me… Once again I left her in peace pretty much – loved the mascara and lip liner technique. But if she’s learning from watching me then….eek…. Anyway […]
This is my beloved 7 Year old Cousin! She’s a real pain sometimes but the funniest person I know! I was *babysitting* her and fell asleep. She knows how to record videos using imovie HD, and when I passed out, she had used some of make up to make this video! It was too cute not to share! Considering she just made it, I thought she was a real pro! I can’t even speak in […]
