I never really get the fuss over Valentine’s Day, not least because I’m a miserable bastard, but it’s my birthday which means I neatly get to sidestep all the tacky gifts and overpriced flowers. It also means I can be the saviour of all my single/heartbroken/dead inside friends with a V-Day event that definitely isn’t [...]
When I was five I asked my mum if I could have Barbie wallpaper in my bedroom, I can still remember it now, screaming bright pink print with Barbie’s face and the logo plastered all over it. She let me have the vaguely less offensive princess wallpaper, complete with matching pink curtains, in the hope [...]
Here is part two, as I mentioned before Rachael has got 2K12 exhibs totally covered, but these are the ones that I personally want to see. Apologies if you don’t live in London, but hey!

I don’t really wear foundation, but Aveda’s Inner Light tinted moisturiser is light enough to wear everyday and it has SPF. It’s non-greasy as well, so I can wear it and not get a sweaty mirror/forehead. Bonus. Benefit’s Porefessional is a bit of a miracle product, it’s a silicon based mattifier/pore refiner which gives an unreal soft focus glow to your skin.
