The Woman Who Stole My Life, Marian Keyes - A Boxing Day Dream

I must admit to some reluctance at writing book reviews. Whilst novels are probably my life’s greatest passion (alongside lipstick, obvs.), I never want to be one of those wanky, smug gits who ruin a book you might love by discussing it in depth before you can have a chance to make your own mind up, like the utter tree-rots who ruined Edge of Reason before it even came out.


Hi! Welcome to Beauty and Life Circa '91

The year is 1991, the town Lisburn, Northern Ireland. Scrunchies and shell suits are in, and no girl worth her salt shops anywhere that isn’t C & A or Tammy Girl.  It is just before my ninth Christmas and I, along with many other army brats are awaiting the arrival of the festive military Santa (aka, my dad).


Hands that do dishes

For as long as I can remember I’ve had the hands of a 90 year old man. On one of my very first beauty courses, when learning how to manicure, I was told I had hands that looked like they’d worked. I was eighteen. The most work I’d done was try on clothes in Topshop while pretending to stocktake, so not exactly spinning cotton in an 18th century factory. However, my beauty therapy lecturer was a giant hag so I didn’t pay any particular attention.
