Lancôme Absolu Voyage Make Up Palette Review

“… Flying makes me nervous. I get uneasy seeing the National Guard go through my makeup case.” – Carrie Bradshaw Tell me about it. Squeezing my lotions and potions into a teeny little bag (a freezer bag no less!) for a globe trotting fashionista like me is so not chic. Once upon a time I scoffed at make-up palettes, but now, what with a shared bathroom with nada space and

The No Seconds Club

How not to host a dinner party. For those interested in baking, cooking, knitting, any form of domestic goddess goodness, you will not find such interests here. I am much too shallow a writer for that and live by the motto “if I can’t nuke it, I won’t cook it” which sums up my love affair with the microwave.

Keep a few healthier alternatives at your desk. Some nuts and mixed seeds

Never Underestimate The Power Of Red Lipstick

For an instant pick-me-up, wear red lipstick. Preferably pillar box red lipstick but if that’s a little too intense, try something with a raspberry or vin rouge tint instead. It looks good on everyone and will never go out of style. Always keep one red lippy in your purse – you never know when you might need it!     If we had to choose one red lipstick, for eternity, then you

A Hop, Skip and a Lunch.

Belfast may be many things, infamous and notorious spring to mind, but it’s our little corner of the world. Although we will never admit to there being any part of the city better than the Lisburn Road. (shameless plugging), we have been known to venture occasionally to the hubbub of the city centre. For those ladies who love to lunch, there is no better starting off point than the delightful
