The Selfie…..just kidding. Though trust me, you wouldn’t want to see a close up of my face right now, I’ve been sick all over Christmas. It’s been a quiet one in this house, myself and the small boy have spent our days in front of the fire watching Harry Potter movies. His father has been dodging the germs by carrying on with the usual Christmas tradition of going out and getting hammered. Chance would be a fine thing. Anyway, I digress.

So I was away for the weekend in Dublin & I went a small bit mad shopping with Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits. I’d planned on getting some clothes & boots & some beauty bits.

Your MOST favourite now, the thing you couldn’t imagine every being without now that you’ve got your grubby mitts on it. It doesn’t need to be something that you use every day, or even that often. It just needs to inspire a deep and abiding love in you.

It is the lipstick (pencil) that finally turned me from a red-lipo-phobe to a full on, “look at me, I’m gorgeous” red lip diva. A cool toned red with a hint of pink to it, it suits my pale and pink toned complexion to a tee. It’s a cinch to apply, lasts forever and wears off evenly leaving a pretty stain on the lips. I love it. I cannot, and will not live without it ever again. It completes me.
