This is what I’ve learned from spending 3 hours at The Trafford Centre

i. Come November there will be tons and tons of annoying people (me included) in The Trafford Centre doing their Christmas shopping which means you will be shoved from pillar to post. Just be grateful there’s no Primark in there. ii. If you have scheduled a make over with RMK and the person doing it has actually gone home, you will be ever so slightly irritated but at least the nice temp girl shoves a […]



So this was supposed to be a post all about how I went and had my first threading experience – brows and upperlip you see. I have never had my brows done professionally before because I don’t trust people. I don’t trust over eager beauticians anyway. But you know at some point you got to let go. So a few hours before my appointment, I start to read up on threading especially the upperlip. Then […]

Haul & How the hell are you?

Happy July People! Tis been a while since I did a proper post, but you know, I have had a huge list of things to take care of and no broadband connection so I have had to use an extremely slowwwww dial up mobile dongle thing. (Work has been nuts – home keeping, so many projects, looking after the felines, being snotty all the time…) The man in the shop said it would last three […]

Birthdays, and Natural Spritzes for the hair

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YUMMY 411!! I hope you are having a fun fun day! And just a quickie – I have been testing out a few hair spritzes (home made) and they have been quite effective. One is for my very dry, sore scalp. It can be very itchy and sore. Some days its drives me nuts – I’ve used all kinds of cheap and expensive shampoos but I haven’t hit on a magic product yet. […]

I’ve lost that Friday Feeling….

How I feel today: I’ve had 3 hours sleep. I have 6 days to find a place to live, and pack my stuff up. Oh, NOW buying that lipstick in every colour doesn’t seem like such a great idea. I don’t have time because I work all day and all evenings. However all is not lost. Kitty, CJ7 says meditate when the world is overwhelming: Things always seem to work out one way or another […]

Clinique Bonus Time and Randomness

I am not a fan of Clinique but I noticed this rather nice GWP from Harvery Nichols, from now untill 21st June. Buy 2 things and get: Buy a third and get: Yes you get a paw. A friend on mine who works on an adjacent counter says that the Clinique girls are the worst for gossiping, for generally being lazy (they don’t have to try too hard when they have these generous GWP’s) and […]

Ok, it’s not even funny anymore…

Rant rant rant I promise I will stop ranting like a crazy old woman soon but I was bemused to get this message when listing some items on Ebay today: I had to reread it three times to make sure this was real. So now, when you get paid for something you have sold, Paypal, after taking a fat chunk of your profits, will have pleasure in keeping hold of your funds for 21 days […]

Sharon Stone lets the botox get to her head

That classy babe, Sharon Stone let rip today on her view of China, Tibet and the Earthquake that has killed 50,000 people so far and counting. She told reporters: “I’m not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. “I’ve been concerned about how we should deal with the Olympics, because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is […]
