A MAC Renaissance




I’m having a bit of a MAC renaissance. 

I've gone from wearing a little bit of every brand on my face to sporting a brand bias.

This happens every now and then, typically a result of my rooting around in a drawer to rediscover old favourites. On this occasion though I think it was prompted by a film, specifically *cough, cough* House of Versace.

5 Thoughts About Blogging



I realized something quite startling the other day – buynowbloglater.com is entering its 5th year! 5 years of sharing is a long time and that’s before we even consider the Lollipop26 years that preceded this corner of the Internet.

In that time I have seen the community evolve. What started an innocent sharing of purchases with little to no commercial element attached has now transformed into a financial machine with bloggers often transformed into PR mouthpieces.

So for what it’s worth here is what I think about blogging now that we are entering 2015!

2014 Beauty Favourites



Before I launch into this mammoth retrospective let me just say thank you for all your lovely messages/comments/tweets regarding yesterday's post. It wasn't until after I posted it that I started to feel a little emotional, all thanks to the kindness expressed in your feedback. So thank you. Many of you have followed me for a long time and I do regard you as close friends. With that in mind I think candidness should also be an approach adopted in 2015.

Right, let's get started on my 2014 beauty favorites. I have focussed on stuff that I have tried this year - rather than old stalwarts that line the cupboards. There are quite a few so don't be afraid to get a cup of tea and assume a comfortable position on the sofa.

Musings and resolutions



Well I hope you are all doing marvellously well. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and if you didn’t don’t worry; it’s all over now.

I’ll tell you a little secret: I actually don’t love Christmas. At all.
