I’m a mature rock chick from Cambridge, UK, where I live with my husband Phil, daughter Kat, dog Skye and cats Pandora and Morticia.

I play sax, and also enjoy travel, languages (I speak fluent Polish and am also learning Russian) photography, pets, walking, blogging, the odd bit of sewing, watching old Hammer horror films and, of course, makeup!

I have an IHBC in Cosmetic Make Up, and work at my local pub as a receptionist for their takeaway section.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I like writing them x007


Happy New Year!!

Despite Sephora declaring they now ‘ship worldwide’, I found that this wasn’t the case when I tried to purchase Urban Decay’s Limited Edition Afterdark palette (a non-restricted item) ! As you can see from the above, they also don’t ship a whole host of other brands to the UK.

I feel cheated 😦

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
