Week In A Vlog: January 2018

I’ve tweaked the name of my monthly Week in My Life videos to Week in a Vlog. I’m not sure how I feel about this decision yet, it was sort of rash and I may live to regret it. I think the problem stems from my hatred for the word “vlog”. It has to be one of the…

Weekly Window Shop: Things I’ve Bought for the House

Strictly speaking, this isn’t really a Weekly Window Shop at all, is it? Because – even though I did spend rather a lot of time faffing around putting things in and out of my online baskets – I ended up buying it all.

As I say in the video, there’s an…

Beauty Brain Freeze

I’m back on the beauty bus, just about. Although I tried to film a video today and got fourteen minutes in before I realised I wasn’t recording anything… Anyway, lots of new things to test and a massive backlog of reviews that I need to write up, but before I get cracking on that I…

Sunday Tittle Tattle: My Non-Relaxing Relaxation List

I’ve come to the conclusion that I am physically and mentally incapable of achieving a state of relaxation. When I thought I was going to have four weeks off over Christmas (it was actually two weeks, strictly speaking, but four weeks away from “making content” for the internet) I made a big list of all…

A Week In My Life: December 2017

Don’t get too excited – I’m not back, not properly. I’m just poking my head around the door really, so that you don’t forget about me. And I also needed to post up my December Week In My Life before it became totally outdated and irrelevant. I mean, it’s pretty much outdated already, because who wants to…
