Horses, beaches and crustaceans

Yesterday we did something else I’ve wanted to do for years: went swimming on horseback, by which I mean the horses went swimming and we, er, sat on their backs. Or, in the case of Terry, the horse went swimming…

I don’t feel like blogging, blogging…

… because I’m just too busy relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. I am, however, still jumping: Just not as well as Terry is: (Taken in front of the Rock n Rollercoaster at Hollywood Studios). I still have another few days…

Things I Bought: Christian Louboutin edition

So, Neiman Marcus had a sale on… Whoops. I also got a Sephora Loyalty Card. You’d think that would be absolutely useless to me given that I live in a country Sephora doesn’t ship to, but nope, I already qualified…

On vacation…

I'm sure I've mentioned my upcoming vacation often enough for it to come as no surprise that I'm here to bid you adieu for a couple of weeks, as I head off to the sun to recharge my batteries and…

Guest Post: Primer Potions and Ruby Slippers

I’m getting ready for my vacation today, so I leave you with a couple of guest posts from makeup-artist-in-training, Kerry Walker. Kerry writes… One of the best discoveries I made while studying to become a make up artist, is foundation…

Twenty Kilos of Clothes

Things I Did While the Internet Was Down

1. Worked on my novel. Remember my novel? Huh. Me neither, apparently. Wordcount when I started working on my novel this week: 13,175 words Wordcount as of rightthisveryminute: 11,752. (Although some of those don’t actually count because they say things…

Korres Watermelon Suncare Stick SPF30

We've been having what passes for a "heatwave" here in the UK for the past few days, and Mr Dollface keeps commenting that I "smell like summer holidays" – by which he means I absolutely reek of high factor sunscreen….

NO. INTERNET. (From Virgin Media. Again.)

I’ve had barely any internet access since Friday afternoon. I KNOW! How have I coped? Well, “badly” would probably be the most accurate answer to that. Especially given that, even as I write this, I know there’s a really good…
