Lashings of Lashes!

Please excuse hair plats, Pajamas and bed!
This was taken at about four am when we got back from my friends birthday drinks last week.

As I have said before I am a false lash feind and will wear them everyday if I have the time.
I picked up these ones in Superdrug the other day. I think they were around £4/5 each.
Eyelure are doing some beautiful L/E Tokyo lashes atm, really pretty, I brought the blue feather ones and wore them to a mates birthday (see above!). The girls loved em, well worth a tenner!
I have been wearing eyelure lashes for years and never had any problems <3.

Dreaded Lurgey

"blughhrruuhhggaaaaahmmmm" :(

Is exactly how I feel right now.
I'm sick!
I have a bad chest infection and I'm on antibiotics. Joy :|

Just thought I would drop everyone a wee blog to say sorry for not blogging, but I feel like death and not even slightly warmed up.

But! I have brought a few things, nothing too exciting.
I did however find a foundation light enough for me, although now obviously I'm wondering if it's just a little too light.. I will never be satisfied! I need to get my arse down to Prescriptives sharpish.

What is quite funny is it is the exact same foundation I wore when I was 16.
I've been applying it with my 187 brush and so far I'm really liking it.
I'm so into drugstore foundation at the moment, after years of paying £20 + for foundations I'm
loving that I can get two for that and play around and if I don't like it..whatevs!
I think maybe the 187 is a big factor.
I LOVE it.
I got a good dupe of it the other day as well.

Rambling again!

Well, hopefully soon I will be back to full health (HA) and blogging away.
Chase me up about the drugstore foundation and 187 dupe and mini drugstore haul when I'm back.
I'm very easily distracted and say I'll do stuff and get over excited by something else and forget completely! I do this in real life. It's a nightmare doing the weekly shop.

Hope everyone is full of the joys of spring!!
I'm off to watch horror films in bed with the ball and chain :D

P.s Sorry for small insight into current lolcat obsession.
I know It's sad but I can't help myself.
I'm ill! I'm allowed! x

Mac Mineralize Eye Shadow - Illusionary Burning Ambition

One word to sum this up?
It's huge as well..
The same size as the Grand Duo blushes (of which I brought three, but thats another post!)
I Used it today and I really like how it came out.

I Used MAC Painterly paint pot as a base, Loreal Voluminous mascara, which I'm not
actually that keen on to be honest, and a tiny bit of Rimmel liquid eyeliner.
I Should have spent more time on the eyeliner but I wanted a really quick look
and I didn't really want the shadow to be swamped by tons of black eyeliner.
I'm a huge fan of winged eyeliner and wear it everyday, but I liked the shadow so much
I thought I would take it easy for once.
Underneath the eye I just smudged a bit of MAC Teddy eye kohl with my finger.

pretty pretty!

I <3 Marrakesh

Meet the Stila Eye Shadow Quad in Marrakesh and Nars lipgloss in Frisky Summer.

I LOVE the chocolate colour on the bottom right, it's gorgeous.

Frisky summer!

No flash
I'd say the colour was closer to the non flash photo, but a little less dark.

Furry chums!

Unfortunately last weekend while outside a pub in a happy drunken haze my cowboy ankle boot somehow got caught on a wooden bench and I flew arse over tit and ended up in the splits and hysterics. Hmm.

Some startled men lifted me up again and after checking I had not made holes in my leggins I skipped off to dance not realizing what doom awaited me.

My camera had war wounds and died...Sad times.

BUT I brought a shiny new camera today!
And it's pink! hurrah!
I was very worried I would not find another pink one you see..
It's a Sony Cybershot W210 and takes laaavllly pictures.

So I have been mucking about taking photo's of Minka and my cat Alabama (who is called bumbum by everyone for reasons unknown.) and I thought I would show you lovely lot some.

Whats everyone got planned for the weekend?

"Quick! Call the Obese Police!"

Is what my sister shrieks every time our elderly and rather rotund cat Wolfgang
thuds into the room.
I think he realizes that this outburst is somehow connected to him and has started to look a bit disgruntled every time it happens.
Quite funny if you like that sort of thing.

But this is not a post about mentally abusing cats it is a post about hair!
Fat hair to be precise and these here products that promise hair of elephant proportions.

Behold Samys FAT HAIR "0" Calorie Thickening Spray
and the BED HEAD by Tgi Superstar range for Thick Massive Hair.
I brought the Conditioner, Sulfate free Shampoo and Blowdry lotion (the three on the left) yesterday.


I am a sucker for anything that says it will plump up my hair as big hair is a big love of mine...
In fact big most things really.. (oh-er missus)

Big eyes, big lashes, big hair, big handbags, bit earrings etc
I think it must stem from some deep rooted belief that the bigger your hair/handbag/earrings the smaller you will look.

Admittedly I would need to throw my keys and purse into Father Christmas's sack and dangle some chandeliers off my ears to make a difference.. but I soldier on!

The Tigi stuff smells gorgoeus, especially the Blowdry lotion. So lovely.
The Fat hair spray smells good too, it reminds me of something i've smelt before but I
can't quite place it.

Anyone else tried these products?

Everyday Make Up

As I am such a kind and thoughtful person I Thought I would show you lovely lot how I wear my make up everyday!
what a fabulous treat for you all. :P


My everyday make up when I only have about 15 mins to get my face on.
I like to have 40 minutes to do my make up but this is not always practical apparently.

Sorry these pics are not very facey
but I was taking some for facebook and thought I would pop them on here.

Eye eye! Har har! Why yes of course these are my real lashes.
*cough cough splutter*

The ultra observant among you may have noticed that I always have a block fringe (had this babbeh for 4 years aint nothing coming 'tween us ya'll) and in the above photos I don't.
Well, I've been wearing extensions for years and have loads of old ones lying about so I decided to clip some into my fringe et voi la! A whole new look.
what do you think?

Full list of what I am wearing can be done if you wish but it's 4:36 am and I should be in bed snoozing instead of up, wearing false lashes and taking photos of myself.

I might edit this tomorrow night and put what I'm wearing.

So long, fair well, goodnight.
