Review: Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation

I’ve been meaning to write a review of Illamasqua’s Rich Liquid Foundation for ages now, but haven’t gotten round to it because, to be completely honest, I keep changing my mind about it. I think ultimately it’s one of those products people…

Goodbye, old friend

They don’t make cars like they used to

On Friday night, Terry’s car left us forever. It was a sad time for us me. I’ve said before that I get ridiculously attached to things, especially cars, so I may have gotten just a little bit misty-eyed as I…

Confessions of a Shopaholic. And Bruno.

Well, as I mentioned last week, Terry and I had another fancy dress party to attend this weekend. And, as I also mentioned, my planned costume was pretty half-assed.

It never rains but it….pees

Last night I stumbled off to bed fairly late. We’ve been working hard to get back to normal after the events of Black Friday, obviously, so I was exhausted and looking forward to a good night’s sleep. I kicked off my shoes,…

Halloween Costume Ideas | Lady Gaga

Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt this unfortunate series of Catastrophic Events to bring you photos of the Halloween costume I was banging on about on Black Friday, shortly before the phone call from Heart Internet saying, “Oh, hai, we just deleted…

Yet another catastrophic failure

After the “catastrophic failure” that mysteriously led Heart Internet to lose all of my websites on Friday afternoon, I had thought all of our bad luck for the year had been used up in one go. But no. Of COURSE…
