Beauty Products I Loved: October 2010

I can’t quite believe it’s the end of October already – it feels like just a couple of days ago that I was putting together my favourite beauty products of September, but rather than dwelling on the speedy passing of…

Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy’ solid perfume ring

You know Christmas is coming when Marc Jacobs releases a solid perfume, cocktail ring shaped version of his popular ‘Daisy’ perfume, don’t you? This is the latest incarnation of the aforementioned ring, and is slightly more subtle than previous incarnations…

Review: Rodial Glamtox Night

When I tell you this face cream costs £88, you’re going to instantly realise that I didn’t go out and buy it myself, but in the name of full disclosure, let the record reflect that this was sent to me…

Boxwatch 2010: Boxing Clever

In the comments on my last post, Katri said she’d been hoping for an update on The Box, and, well, that’s really all the encouragement I need, so without further ado: (Rubin: “I know I normally come running every time I see…

Oops

Baby You Can Drive My Car

So, it turns out that the Box O’Doom isn’t the only thing Terry has been hoarding lately. You see, a couple of weeks ago, we bought a new TV cabinet. I know, it’s a rock n’ roll lifestyle we lead, to…

Blurry iPhone photos FTW!

Boxwatch 2010

Folks, this box set up residence in my living room approximately 4 weeks ago: It’s still there. It arrived containing a part for Terry’s car, which, bizarrely enough, was contained inside a much smaller box, which was inside this one….

Sleep Talk and Teeth

One of the most unexpected side-effects of the Invisalign treatment I’ve been having has been a dramatic increase in the number of “OMG, my teeth are all falling out!” nightmares I usually have: in fact, I’ve gone from maybe one…

Queen of the Stone Age

“I die!” (Shoe Challenge # 51, for Shoeperwoman.com) Remember those sheep I became friends with this summer? Well, they weren’t the only surprise this town had in store for me. In fact, just a few days later, I was out…

Me in SHE, on how to make money from blogging

A few weeks ago I did an email interview with SHE magazine on making money from blogging. I spent a bit of time answering questions on the topic, and here’s the article! OK, so they distilled my predictably long, rambling…

Review: Wella Lifetex Color Reflex Mask in Red

When I wrote about my search for a replacement for John Frieda’s discontinued ‘Radiant Red’ colour mask last month, a couple of you suggested Wella’s Lifetex range, and last week I finally got around to ordering myself a tube of…

Pick My Next Little Black Dress

So, waaay the hell back at the start of this year, Shoeperwoman.com won a blog competition, and the prize was a Karen Millen gift card. This was tremendously exciting to me, obviously (in fact, if you heard a faint, but…

Kid Fears

If you’re a longtime reader, or are one of my parents, you will already know much, much more than you ever wanted to about my main phobias: crustaceans, people rubbing their feet together while wearing socks, being beheaded… you know…

Dollface Reviews: Boots No. 7 Foundation Brush

My makeup brushes are all badly in need of replacing, and rather than remortgaging my house to buy a completely new set all at the same time (OK, so I’m exaggerating here, but only a little bit…) I’ve decided to…

Back to the Asylum

Terry actually took these photos for one of my Shoeper Shoe Challenges today, but, as usual, he took about eleventy-one shots, so I thought I may as well offload them here, so someone can use them to advertise their second-hand…

My favourite beauty products of September

I can’t quite believe it’s October already, can you? This has been the fastest year ever, so before we consign September to memory forever, I thought I’d take a quick look back at five of the products that have been…
