This is a guest post by Bee at Bee Loves Beauty. Since the sun is well and truly out and long holiday weekends beckon, I thought it might be a nice idea to share some tips and recommendations for make up survival at festivals. Based on trial and (considerable) error, I’ve come up with some golden hints I swear by. Hopefully these will help us to avoid the third-day-leprous look that can afflict the make up wearing festie-goer.
The new Graze.com snacks with dried pear are fantastic! And you can get your own box for free if you haven’t tried them yet – use code XF1RCB8. The one in the photo is “Poached Pear”; the main ingredients are pear, sultanas, vanilla pumpkin seeds and lemon infused sultanas. The pumpkin seeds are sweet, sticky to the touch, and taste like they should be a lot less healthy than they actually are. The fruit is tasty and tangy, and I’m surprised I’ve never tried dried pear before until this week. It really is awesome. On Tuesday I tried the new “Pear Tatin”, [...]
I just bought a “Guided Transfer” service from WordPress.com to move all the stuff on this site to, essentially, another site that looks roughly the same and has the same web address but is delivered to your screen from a web host that I pay, rather than from WordPress.com. If that meant nothing to you and your eyes have glazed over, feel free to wander off. There are some naked girlie photos here, or a few recipes. Anyway, what it means is that if you come back in a couple of weeks’ time, this blog may look slightly different. No [...]
Overall rating: 1/5 Best points: lots of playable characters; controller configuration Worst points: no 3D gameplay; can’t see opponent during special moves. I hired Marvel vs Capcom 3 (Xbox 360) from Lovefilm rather than buy it outright. I was looking forward to this title coming out, but was really disappointed after having a few goes on it. I hoped it would’ve had the same type of stuff as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (Xbox 360) had going for it, with 3D fighting and Freefall fighting. But Marvel vs Capcom 3 is all 2D gaming until you do your special moves… Then [...]
Stuff I’ve tried a million different versions of until I found one that was good… Black eyeliners – they’re either too hard & scratchy, too soft & smeary, look dark grey instead of black, or settle into my skin and don’t wash off for days. Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner feels lovely & smooth, makes a nice clean line, smudges & blends well, but doesn’t rub off. Scratch mittens for babies (to stop mini-MI from shredding her face with her own tiny sharp fingernails). Primark’s mittens are the only ones she can’t pull off too easily, and they’re the cheapest too [...]
