Getting Ready: Theater

Hi Guys,

Tonight I went to see the local production of 'Avenue Q' that some of the members of the theater society that I belong to are in, and let me say, it was fantastic! The musical numbers were some of the funniest I've ever heard. There were some parts that made me flush with slight embarrassment, and moments that feel warm
and fuzzy. I'm not going to say anymore because I don't want to spoil it for those who don't know, but it was fantastic!


I love dressing up to go to the theatre, regardless of whether it's on the West End, National tour, or local production. Since I only go once-in-a-blue-moon, it just makes it feel special.

I decided to go with silver and black as my theme. I tried out a grey toned, smokey eye (which never translated onto the camera well), with heavy mascara. I also wore a nude lippy, so that the focus was primarily on my eyes. 

The animal print top was the only decent thing I could find to go with what I had planned. I had one of those 'I have millions of clothes and yet nothing to wear' days. The jeans were my nice formal black skinnies (is there such a thing as a formal jean?) My silver heels were a must. The people I was going to the theatre with have only ever seen me in baggy, workout clothes and so I wanted to make a different impression on them.

The spiked statement necklace gave the outfit a bit of an 'edge' which paired with a leather jacket. I also filled a black leather satchel with all my necessities, like my makeup bag, glasses, phone etc.


Overall, it has been a good night filled with laughter and giggles, and I will forever remain a 'Theatre Geek'.

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips.
