I wanted to write this last week, but of course, as I utter my most over-used words these days, I just haven't had the time. Days have seeped into nights and the whole weekend came and went in a blur of work and a 45 minute nap on Sunday which was most enjoyable until I was pounced upon … Continue reading Beauty, Art, Shopping: A Perfect Day
As you might have seen from my blog bio, I am pretty obsessed with finding the perfect eye cream. This started when I was in my 30s as I know the skin around the eyes is particularly fine and gets more so as we get older. I'm pretty fortunate to not have dark circles (I … Continue reading Eye Know, I Haven’t Written In A While…
It's that time of the year where Christmas madness descends on towns and cities. Websites are slow and shops are heaving; full of harassed, frantic looking people desperately searching for the perfect gift for their spouse, mother in law, 'secret santa' colleague and cat. I have managed to avoid all this because, don't hate me, … Continue reading That Time Of The Year

I was browsing my local Marks & Spencer recently and they do a vast array of cosmetics and beauty products that you won't find in your local Boots or Superdrug.

I am a bit of a mascara addict and would try a new one every month if I could, but there are a few I do go back … Continue reading Quick Review: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
So today was an unexpected beauty day. I haven't had my eyebrows shaped professionally for years which is appalling I know, but they never looked too bad and I pluck the strays daily. I've always been a bit nervous of threading as it looks quite painful so have only ever had my eyebrows waxed. Anyway, … Continue reading To Thread or not to Thread?
Ok so this is a bit of a long blog post as it has been a while (again!) since my last one, but I've broken it down in chunks to make it easier to read. Apart from getting used to the school run, having a cold and losing my voice, work, family & friend time, … Continue reading A lot of TV and Some Other Stuff
So I really seem to be having an issue with meeting deadlines on this blog don't I? It's never the same when you're the one to set you're own schedule and then end up being far too relaxed about it. Rather like getting my own expenses done compared to when I was doing them for other … Continue reading Can Women Have it All?
