Posted · 14 Comments

Following on from the diet tips video (see here for that) we have my top five fitness and exercise tips. All common sense, again, with a few rambling old thoughts thrown in for good measure. I’m on a bit of a fitness kick at the moment – I want to try lots of new classes [...]

What Is Vine?

Posted · 5 Comments

As if we didn’t have enough things to do online already (shopping, emailing, watching funny kittens) the internet has thrown us another time-sapping activity: Vine. Vine is a new twitter app that lets you produce 6-second long “looping” videos (as you’d think: they just go round and round) and post them up for all to [...]

Messing About with My Makeup

Posted · 16 Comments

Sorry, I look a bit moody here don’t I? I do smile but I never catch it on camera properly for a stills shot. I always get myself mid-grin looking like someone who’s escaped from an institution. Oh well. It won’t affect your enjoyment of the video, I hope – it’s an informal old thing, [...]

d.j.v. Beautinizer Mascara – Love it or your Money Back!

Posted · 15 Comments

I thought that this offer might interest anyone who has been sitting on the fence about d.j.v. Beautinizer Mascara. I’ve gone on about the Volume Lash version forever; it’s one of my most-used makeup products. It coats the lashes with a kind of film rather than a liquid mascara – it won’t budge even if you sleep [...]

Clarins Jolie Rouge Brilliant Lipstick Review

Posted · 10 Comments

 My current lip-love is the beautiful Jolie Rouge Brilliant lipstick from Clarins. Actually: that, and the Chanel La Favorite from the Spring collection, but the Chanel is a little drying at the moment whereas the Clarins is ultra-moisturising. It has a really juicy texture and a sparkling finish that makes my lips look plumper and smoother. I’ve been using [...]
