Five days post the spray tan experiment, and I am still glowing. I have experimented greatly with the scrumptious products in the goodie bag; I have dabbed, massaged and patted and am definitely hooked now.
When I first arrived in London, one sunny day in April 2005, three things struck me as far more bizarre than the usual craziness you’d expect from moving countries: Left-hand-traffic and its potential to provide for my untimely death. The diminutive effect on £550 if put towards a flatshare in Notting Hill. Streaky shades of […]
Flipping through one of my favourite magazines, my attention got caught by the above image. I am not a prudish person. Still, I found myself wondering why exactly the model’s breast is exposed. I don’t mind people going topless at the beach if that’s what makes them happy. I don’t mind a bit of erotic […]
35 days to go until summer vacation. Not that I’d be counting. But images like the one above make me fantasize of lazy days at the beach, where the only question bugging your mind is whether to have ice cream before or after dipping into the sea. 11 degrees C on an afternoon in June […]
After bumblebees up your bum and ants in your pants (thanks, Iota!), we are now moving on to fishes on your feet. In case you have been lucky enough to stroll around Selfridges during Christmas time, you (most likely hot, flushed and staggering like a packhorse under the weight of your shopping) cannot have missed […]

It’s mummy with makeup!’) However much I might be flattered though, the truth is an entirely different story. Trying to copy the ‘purple […]
I am every Beauty PR’s dream. A true victim of the marketing machinery. As soon as there’s something new on the market, I have to try it, massage it into my skin, rub it, brush it, scrub it. I have always been a proper sucker for beauty products. Aged 14, when my friends would run […]
Just because you were asking: Enjoy the first days of Spring. Finally! PS: The problem with doing your hair is that I now feel like I should wear makeup. Duh. That was not the plan!
Ever wondered what happened to heated rollers? Wonder no more… I have sent Big M on a trip to self-discovery, a bit of grounding and a lot of yoga in Thailand (I know, what was I thinking), the babysitter has taken time off and is in Sweden and I… well, you have to keep yourself […]
My friend Emily drew my attention to this little playful piece of makeup art. I mean, how cool is this? And honestly, how many of you have enough stuff in their makeup bags to copy it? Off to play robots now…
