My 2016 Vision board

Do you have a vision board?  I LOVE mine ... it's in my dressing room and, as you do with vision boards - I love to cover it with the things that make me happy.  In fact, I'm not 100% sure it's a vision board as such; it's more a space that I collect things … Continue reading My 2016 Vision board

A short and sweet Christmas lust list

I love reading other people's Christmas Lust Lists, so I thought I'd put together a quick little one of my own.  And here it is ... Of course Dita's new book right?  Because a) we've been waiting for it for ages; b) just look at it and c) just look at her. These - by B.a.i.t … Continue reading A short and sweet Christmas lust list

How to avoid fakes when buying vintage Louis Vuitton

Numpty’s (ever-so-current) “Pinup Wishlist”

'Ya know right back when I started my blog, I posted this graphic - "How to Spot a Pinup Girl"? Well ...

So - I'm starting at the … Continue reading Numpty’s (ever-so-current) “Pinup Wishlist”

Three things I’d buy a million times over, and two I wouldn’t bother with again

Soooo, how's that for a long post title?! Anyway ... lately I've been thinking about some of the products I've purchased as a result of online "hype" and whether or not that "hype" was actually justified in the product itself.  As a member and admin of  Makeup Obsessives, I've bought several products that have flooded through MUO … Continue reading Three things I’d buy a million times over, and two I wouldn’t bother with again

If I had $800 to spend at Lush …

A while ago I decided to do a little series of posts on what I'd buy if I had $800 to spend in certain places, 'cos I'm shallow like that! Sadly, I don't actually have $800 to randomly spend on unnecessary things, but I'm not going to let the facts get in the way of a … Continue reading If I had $800 to spend at Lush …

Billion dollar baby face …

If like me, all your makeup products seem to run out at once, you’ll know that sinking feeling you get when you have to shell out the big bucks for replacements! Makeup’s not cheap, but whoa … did you know there are false eyelashes out there that retail at $1,350? I mean, seriously?! When I … Continue reading Billion dollar baby face …

Five iconic handbags

Handbags, even more than shoes, (I know!), are one of my biggest passions, so I thought it might be a bit of fun to do a quick handbag version of my "Five iconic" series.  Which kinda sounds a wee bit OTT really considering currently my "Five iconic" series consists of "Five iconic fragrances" and that's it!  But … Continue reading Five iconic handbags
