Just a little one from my death bed – Manchester will be saying NAY to the congestion charge. To all you tree hugging, student-minded, failed-my-driving-test-several-times-plebs: Ner ner ner ner ner ner ner ner ner. That’s all.
Me and the other half have been together for 4 years today and managed to not kill each other…just. As James Joyce once said: “I think I would know Nora’s [his wife] fart anywhere. I think I could pick hers out in a roomful of farting women.” Mine would be: “I think I would know […]
Whoops. So busy buying generic soapy bath sets and slippers for people I hate, like all me relatives I forgot to buy something for the other half. Torn between a 120gb ipod, a new processor and motherboard or a new monitor. Here’s how we decide what to buy. Ipod – £170 Processor and motherboard – […]
UPDATE: Ppppssstttt. Check out my new blog for moaning. Seeing as this is supposed to be a beauty blog no.1 and not a moaning one – here. Sorry for the lack of posts! I have been confined to l’apartement, suffering from the dreaded flu and a skin eating bug. Well ok, not a skin eating […]
I paid way too much for this damn kit from eBay: They say: What it does: Tarte Purse Your Lips Limited-Edition Lipgloss Clutch is perfect for parties and celebrations—with so many glosses to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect match for any occasion. The brand-new, limited-edition shades are infused with the Tarte t5 […]
Anyone know a good web host? When I was searching for one to look after this blog it was a real mission – so many of them suck balls. Finally I settled on A Small Orange – decent company, good prices, can’t fault the speed of responses. But since I have been with them for […]
I know, give me a medal. But seriously if you have as much make up as me, finished something deserves a pat on the back. And here it is: It’s the RMK creamy foundation in shade 103. Bought this a long time ago. The RMK bases are really nice, fresh bases that are very recommended. […]
I am mad for brows at the moment, ever since I realised my brows are a little short at the ends and need some extended for some va-va-voom. So I got this Benefit Instant Brow for half price from eBay. This comes in two shades. Light/Medium and Medium/Dark. I bought the Medium/Dark. The pencil is […]
Yes, yes very pretty – but it’s December! This is no time to be releasing the Spring collection! That’s all I wanted to say. What next? Releasing next year’s Christmas collection in January?!
I have to say, I didn’t have much hope when I spotted the dude with yarn on his face. But listen ladies, and you will fall in love. Oh it helps if you spent 95% of your childhood playing on a Nintendo Gameboy like me, because your Asian parents replaced interaction with consoles and pirated […]
How do I book? Where do I book? What do you mean I need to be pregnant?! Damn you!
You know you are about to buy something, and all the time you’re thinking, no, don’t buy this, its a really bad idea. But you buy it anyway? That’s how I felt when I shelled out £17.32 (or some other ridiculous figure – our VAT/TAX rate has been cut from 17.5% to 15% and most […]
There’s a little gem of a palette made by Sleek cosmetics (a brand for darker skins, but no reason at all why all skintones can’t use their eye, cheek and lip products). So far there are four palettes – Original, Storm, Chaos and Jewel. They are all well priced and super soft and pigmented! Some […]
My lovely Aube by Sofina is no more and has been updated to Aube Couture, which looks a bit grannyish. Mind you Aube was always hit and miss with me – fantastic innovative ideas, but the products didn’t always deliver. I’m not keen on the look of the Couture range – I hate eyeshadows in […]
I get excited whenever Adam Beauty gets new stuff in cos it takes SO LONG sometimes for him to update. There’s some new goodies there but the exchange rate is at all time low so I will have to be extremely restrained. We have the: Limited Edition Gorgeous Wing Mascara in BR777 a golden brown! […]
This is Miss Jocelyn, not a real traffic warden. So today when my other half picked me up from work, we had a quick chat as there was something I had to sort out..10 seconds tops. Comes along a hatchet faced demon, yes, a traffic warden – tiny thing, resembled hitler, had terrible skin. YOU […]
Every evening as I watch I’m a Celebrity, I wait for them. Like two bouncy watermelons they have me in mesmerized, in awe and disgust. I’m talking about Page 3 girl Nicola McLean’s bionic gazungas. Nothing new about a Page 3 girl having a boob job, but it seems that with Nicola’s the person pumping […]
Generally speaking, most couriers are utterly useless. It doesn’t take much, like, a doorbell, to put them off delivering an item to you. There are some exceptions – Fedex seem to do what they say and UPS generally speaking. Parcelforce, Home Delivery Network, Citylink, DHL, Amtrak etc. etc. I’ve had them all and they are […]
And so are the chills. Is it cold where you are? It’s freezing where I am but I am well adjusted to cold weather. It’s the chub you see – skinnies, you must be extra cold at this time of year! Been very very busy so have not had time to get as many posts […]
Something happened to me this morning. I woke up and I didn’t want anything. No lemmings. No cosmetic must haves. Nada. I am bored of the winter collections already and the pound is at an huge low next to the dollar so I can’t even buy anything from overseas. Another thing I noticed this morning […]
