Etsy prints #3 – Naps

  We’ve had lipstick and coffee so I thought the third instalment of my Etsy series should be about another integral part of my life: naps. I bloody love a good nap; it might be because I don’t sleep very well at night, kept awake by a whirring brain, but I’m always able to drop off […]

Affordable berry lip shades for Autumn

Pale concealers – who’s the fairest of them all?

As I may have mentioned once or twice I’m remarkably pale-skinned. Whilst I like pretending that I look like Snow White, and that my skin actually looks like alabaster or porcelain, it makes it stupidly difficult to find base products.

Flamingo Candles Espresso jar candle

Everyone seems to be thrilled that Autumn is approaching rapidly and I’m no different. Autumn is about chunky knitwear, berry lipstick, leather boots, blankets, and candles – and I have a candle that I’ve been dying to burn for months. I bought the Espresso jar candle when Flamingo Candles had a half-price sale earlier in […]
