Because I don’t only buy shoes…

…I got an iphone. Which means I can now blog from anywhere . I apologize in advance for all of the dog photos this will involve. And also the photos of me in my parents’ bathroom.

Harajuku Lovers ‘Love’ fragrance gift set

I still haven't got round to trying any of the Harajuku Lovers fragrances, but I already think I might love them, purely because of the cute little Harajuku doll packaging. Yes, I AM that easily swayed when it comes to…

If it wasn’t screwed on…

I think it would be fair to say that I’m not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer a lot of the time. In fact, sometimes I can be downright forgetful. Take last week, for instance. On Monday, Terry and…

sailor-dress

Aye, aye capt’n!

Because I am a selfish childfree person, I spent all my money* on a new dress and shoes. Yay! I also decided to give myself the day off on Monday, so everyone have a great holiday weekend (assuming you’re on…

Review | MeMeMe Fat Cat Lashes Mascara

I'm still on the trail of the best budget mascara in the world ever. Will ANYTHING ever persuade me to give up my high-end mascaras? I doubt it, but today MeMeMe have given it their best shot with their Fat…

Review | Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick

When Revlon said their new Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick would stay on for 12 hours, I have to admit I was skeptical. I've been here before, you see. Every "long-lasting" lipstick I've ever tried has either: a) Lasted until the…

Cowshed Baby Cow Floyd The Sponge

So, I like cows. No, I don't really know why, I just do. I like cow print, too. And  I also like Floyd the cow. Floyd is actually a sponge. And, OK, he was designed with babies in mind, but…

“I get this crap a lot now”

Oh, GOD. Godgodgod. Remember that time I mis-typed my mum’s email address when I was adding it to my Outlook address book (because, hey, we ALL spell our mother’s name wrong sometimes, don’t we?), and, as a result, spent a…

Ask Amber: tanned butts, jeans and more

Yes, folks, we’ve reached that time again when I have absolutely nothing to write about, and so I fall back on answering the questions people ask me through my keyword referrers – the terms people type into Google which somehow…

Inside the mind of a dog

Sometimes I look at Rubin and I think, “GOD, what is that on his face? Has he been eating cat droppings again?”  “You know, I really wish I was him.” I mean, not in respect of the Eating of  Unmentionables,…

At least I still have time for shopping

So, taking a holiday when you’re self-employed is pretty tricky. And by that I mean, “I think I understand now why I always get ill as soon as I land“. Not that taking a holiday is easy when you work…

Paper Surprise

Remember my birthday surprises, and how you thought there was no way I could possibly still be talking about them in MAY, considering my birthday was in March? You were wrong. I still had one surprise left to redeem. That…

A picture is worth a thousand blog posts

There hasn’t been much time for blogging this week. Well, there’s been time for BLOGGING, obviously, because, well, that’s pretty much all I’ve done. But I’ve done so much of it here, here and here that there just hasn’t been time…

More minor phone annoyances

Following on from my post about telephone etiquette, I thought of some more random things that annoy me about the way people use the phone. So here they are: 1. People who send text messages during gym classes, or answer…
