About Me

My photo
I am a naughty girl with a bad habit... a bad habit for all things beautifying and seductively glamourous. Mr Tom Ford is my not so secret crush and don't get me started on the genius of Mad Men. So please join me in my expedition of Beautyland and all things deliciously decadent. And when I am not immersing myself in Beautyland I am imbuing myself in the world of Loving Kindness - Thai Yoga Massage. Please visit my blog Loving Kindness to explore this wonderful domain.

Lark laments

You are familiar with the scenario - girl meets 'OMG - can't live without' product - product gets cruelly discontinued. The End of that beautiful affair.
Well in my life I have been 'abandoned' a few times by products that I believed was 'happily ever after'. Oh MAC Rubine how you haunt me ( that was the best matte rasberry reddy/pink ever).
Sorry, I digress. My sad lament today is for Becca's Bird of Paradise face gloss.
I've had my little compact for years and as I hit pan I know the end is near.
You see there are plenty of face highlighters, shimmers, glosses about but for me, this delievered that perfect wet, sheeny look without the excessive stickiness.
Summers won't be the same without it #sigh#.
It was discontinued last year and I was unable to stock up.
So farewell....

Foot fetish

This was originally going to be a longer post, however I have revision to do so this is a quickie.
So much for sunshine and warm weather in the UK, but to fool myself into thinking it's summer I headed for a pedicure at my local salon.

I shunned the citrus brights for a classic red with an added layer of glitter (not quite Dorothy's shoes... but nearly).
I brought along my own Illamasqua's nail varnish in Ruthless which I requested they layer on top Barry M 150 red glitter. I love the subtle twinkly efffect and at least I can say I have happy feet!

What nail colours/combinations are you flaunting this summer?

Lark Life - Cats!

You have seen the title of this post and are probably thinking  - warning - 'mad cat lady' alert.
Not far wrong.
You see I have always had cats (I grew up in a house that was pretty much a cat sanctuary) and well I love 'em!
I thought I'd introduce you to the feline family members  (Missy and Chowmein) and others sadly no longer with us (sniff).

Missy Poo!
Chow mein!

When you are not the bride

Wedding season is upon us and even if we are not the bride, looking good is still a priority.
Now in the world of Asian (Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi) weddings there is no such thing as outdoing the bride. Everyone wants to look super glam, super made up and super duper really.
There is usually enough bling in the room to put Blackpool Pier illuminations to shame.
I am not a fan of dressing up like a Christmas tree to these events and certainly don't wear the whole colour wheel on my face - unlike some - I kid you not.
Duochrome shadows in such instances are great.
They give the vibe of several tones without looking garish.
MAC's Club is a favourite for this - especially layered over a black base it really intensifies the look.
The great thing about this shadow is that it is shot with brown so is very wearable, sultry and downright sexy!
Teamed with bronzed cheeks and nude (eek!) lips you are good to go.
This is a statement worth making.
I'd love to hear what looks you love for weddings and parties. Post a pic or two.
