Waxing Lyrical

Come on, admit it. You scream when you get your bits waxed don’t you? I know I do, which is why I avoid it as much as possible and will try any solution to avoid going back to the ‘torture…

The Upper Hand

I believe one thing in life – a girl should always have a tube of hand cream with her wherever she goes. One of the main differences between men and women is they have crusty, dry, manky man hands while…

Guess Who?

Seriously, guess who? Who do you think this lovely lady is? Look a little closer… Imagine her with blonde hair, some stupid costume and theatrical make-up… still no? Here’s a clue… “ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ra, ga, ga, ga,…

Dear Diary, today I went to Lush…

Another weekend, another afternoon spent in Lush. (Maybe I should get a hobby or just drink more?) I can’t get enough of this wonderful stuff… it’s more addictive than TicTacs. Sometimes it’s better to go in with a specific problem…

Moisturise me!

I suffer from skanky-dry-leg sydrome… they can get so bad they not only look like snake skin, but feel like it too. Sssssexy! I also suffer from a lot of allergies and for some reason moisturisers seem to set them off…

Chop Chop

I don’t normally blog about this kind of stuff as I leave the gossipy goof to the professionals… but I cannot, I say cannot, let this go by without a mention. What the hell is going on over the pond…

It’s all about the finer things…

Now we’ve finally got some decent weather and the Spring wardrobes are being dusted off and brought out into the light of day again, our make-up is starting to follow suit. There’s a huge trend for vintage prints this season…

Grab yourself a mini-me

I am always caught out in the rain without a brolly which basically means a full-on attack of the frizz. Even though we’ve been lucky enough to have some fab weather of late, you just know that the April Showers…

Anyone for a G&T?

Ooops, sorry… that was supposed to be a S&T. Nope, this isn’t an early weekend Gin and Tonic, but a pre-weekend Skin and Tonic. Whoever came up with this name is an absolute bloody genius. Bloom is a brand that,…

Can I borrow a quid?

My make-up bag is full of impulse buys that seemed a good idea at the time, most of them brightly coloured or ‘fashion’ shades which go out of season very quickly. The problem with having on-trend colours is that you…
