Dates!

I hate first dates, fact. They're pit of the stomach nauseating in the build-up and sometimes just plain awkward! However, it doesn't help that I have a pretty male sense of humour at times. (Does not go down well, believe me. Wish I was sweet and charming!) Looking all pretty then exclaiming, "waaaay, that's what she said!" generally keeps me staring down from that dusty shelf. Hey, I make myself laugh, and that's all that matters(should really start a cat breeding program though. I think it's time!).

Cinnamon and Honey

image purchased from shutterstock

Fully addicted to Pinterest I came across a pin for drinking cinnamon and honey for weight loss, and seeing as it was New Year at the time I thought I’d give it a go. Still drinking it now, I haven’t seen any weight loss and I never really expected to. This is most likely because I fractured my leg just before New Year’s Eve (walked, I’m mean hobbled, around on it for pretty much three weeks before anyone but me believed it was broken – got to love the NHS) so it’s not like I’ve been able to get down the gym to work off excess lard anyway. Therefore it could work for that, who knows.

Errr, Does this Selfie Make me look Gremliny?

(Or can an app replace the need for real make-up for photographic use). 

Aside from an addiction to make-up serious enough for my husband to contemplate setting up Hertfordshire’s first branch of Nars Anonymous (and MAC, Stila, Urban Decay, etc etc etc) I have another passion; Digital Geekery.

Rae Morris, Makeup the Ultimate Guide; Beauty Poetry in Motion

One of both mine and Lucy’s greatest loves are books; of the beauty kind specifically. I love a YouTube vid and find the editorial styles in monthly mags an absolute joy, but nothing beats the massive investment made in creating a book all about make-up. The gorgeous, heavily styled images, detailed tutorials and page upon page of inspiration make spending time reading and re-reading my (frighteningly large) collection of make-up guides right up there on my list of guilty pleasures.

Jem and the Holograms

Kids TV really isn’t what it used to be! 80s and 90s children’s television programmes were immense. Dungeons and Dragons, Heman, Thunder Cats, Transformers, Brave Star ... I could go on for hours. However, news that Jem and the Holograms is going to be made into a film made my inner child very happy. It’ll be awful of course, but I’ll go watch it regardless.

Hairspray, my mama told me not to use it!

Hairspray

As a woman I feel I’ve been blessed with many, many things. These things involve fine, lifeless grease ball hair that looks crap at the best of times, as well as over-styled, over-processed with dry ends the rest. Add adult acne, the beginnings of crows-feet, dark circles and pigmentation into the fold, and you can see why I have a queue round the block of eligible bachelors clamouring to get to my front door. Full blown knock-out ladies! I’m a total beaut.
