The Anti Valentine's

red roses valentines day

Ahh, Valentine's Day. Here you come again with your smattering of heart-shaped declarations of love and the ability to make sane, rational people curl up into a ball and guzzle down buckets of ice cream whilst crying into their H&M sweater.

I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. 

And before we start throwing around accusations, no, I'm not a bitter old spinster with a handful of cats and an evil eye for anyone who so dares to be happy in my presence. I'm one of those happily married folk, although less annoying than the smug ones who flaunt it on Facebook every hour. Or so I like to think.

The Perfect Matte Red Lip?

I don't know about you, but I'm quite partial to a red lip. 

Nude lips are always my go-to when I'm feeling lazy or not wanting to make a huge effort but whenever I'm looking to inject some glam/two dollar hooker into my appearance, I always find myself reaching for a bold red.

The Accidental Birthday Card

I'm back with another wittery post today, and as it's Monday - which is the start of the working week for most of you folk, I thought I'd drop by with a tale that had me literally in stitches. Perhaps it'll brighten up your day as it did mine, or it might be one of those, 'you have to be there moments', either way, when it happened, I was very close to letting out a bit of wee and so I'd say that's fair enough reason to feature it on my blog.

Let me set the scene.

Birthday presents, funny birthday card

Squashed Grapes

Moomin Pjs

Today has, or more specifically is, one of those days where I want to bury my head underneath my duvet and eat an unfathomable amount of crisps... and I never eat crisps. 

Okay, I eat crisps but certainly not regularly unless I'm doing it in my sleep, which we can't entirely rule out as I have a tendency to indulge in midnight snacking.

I once had a pretty strong cheese and pickle night-time routine that, on occasion, my husband would chance upon, half-asleep, bleary-eyed but just conscious enough to remember seeing me stuff a piece of cheddar in my mouth and to question me on it the following day.

I believe he still loves me in spite of this.

NARS Amour

I've saved this review especially for February - yes, I'm that sad!

When a product has the shade name 'Amour' it would be be rude not to. You know, with February being the month of love and all...

Anyway, waffle aside, I bought this blusher towards the end of last year. The only other NARS product that I own is the NARS Domination Cheek Palette, and whilst that was an ordeal to come by in itself, I love the products that this set contains and knew that I'd eventually have to expand my NARS blusher collection.

That's where Amour stepped in.
