Rated R (for Random)

I looked up on the tube this morning and all of a sudden panic struck.  OMG I forgot to put on my eyeliner!!!  It's so weird I use to be scared to wear the stuff in case I stabbed myself in the eye with it (I have a fear of eyes - don't ask lol) and now I can't live without it!!!  I suppose this has highlighted one of my insecurities. I can't go out without my eyeliner.  It's an extension of me but it shouldn't be.  I should be able to wander the streets of London completely fresh faced.  Maybe one day, when I'm 80 :-) x


  1. looooooooooooooooooool sorry i shudnt laugh, but it is funny. i feel like that with concealer. In fact when i used to work i cudnt leave with out eye liner or a bit of blusher. We all wanna look presentable when we go out, but i guess it would be nice if we needed less in order to feel good/presentable. im finally over eye liner and blusher, just gotta get over concelor, but hey i go shopping with out, just wudnt go any where special with out.

    Its sad cus u dont see men going through all this. sadly for women from the time we were born we have been told how beautiful we look. when ever u give a little girl a compliment its usually to do with how she looks. so no wonder we are messed up as adults. How we look is sooo essential and this is something the media loooove to make money out of.

    insha allah one day hun u will leave the house with nothing, hey u did in cyprus :)

  2. I know it is sad and so true, emphasis for women from a young age is all about how you look. I did do well in Cyprus didn't I? I only wore eyeliner once when I was out there. Still had my mascara and concealer though. Like you I can't live without the concealer. Blemishes and dark circles are unforgiving lol.

Yes I keep up with the Kardashians and no I’m not ashamed!!

I’m going to make a bold statement! Are you ready...?
I love Keeping up with the Kardashians!!!
Honestly I do and I’ve found over the years that many people share my healthy obsession with the family but like me, they kind of keep it under wraps. I’ve also found that people who don’t like the Kardashians, think it’s okay to belittle those of us who do but I’m sorry that’s just not kool (see what I did there 😉). 

Why do you love the Kardashians I hear you cry. Well personally I work in a very tense environment and to be honest, before I started my current job 6 years ago, I had never even watched the Kardashians. One of my peers was totally in to Kim K and the rest of the family and because of her, I thought I’d have a little watch and you know what....I’ve never looked back. 
If you’re highly stressed about something or work in an intense environment like myself, sometimes you just need a break and that break can take many forms. Reading, meditating, writing, working out, watching tv; an…

Dining Table Heaven!!

My absolute favourite piece of furniture at the moment is my custom made dining table.

I’ve talked about getting a dining table for about three years and last year I finally got this beauty. Massive thank you to Blacker and Oak who custom made this for me. Check them out on Instagram (link below) and Etsy (search Blacker and Oak). 

Rastamouse - is it really irie man?

How many of you have seen the new CBeebies children's programme Rastamouse?  It features a Jamaican Rastafarian mouse and his crew of 2 (Scratchy and Zooma) aka The Easy Crew.  They solve mysteries in their native Mouseland.  Now when I first saw this I thought it was hilarious. Hearing these characters speaking patois on a children's programme was amazing to me and a sign of how far we had come in this country, accepting and promoting diversity.  At the same time I knew it would only be a matter of time before the complaints came in.  I could just hear hordes of parents saying "but this isn't teaching the children to speak real English", "I don't want my child pretending to be a gangster" (because believe it or not there is a blinged up gangster mouse on the show and he may not be behaving like a gangster but he is dressed as and speaks like one).

It may sound like I don't approve of the show, don't get me wrong I actually like it. The thing…
