Quick Tip & Hello Again!

Hey everyone, I've been AWOL the past few days as I 'had to' go on a work trip on board this fab cruise ship, Norwegian EPIC:

Oh yes =) a good time was had by all. Especially my appetite, which helped me gain THREE pounds. IN. TWO. DAYS. Surely this bends some law of Physics? :( The best things on board were the Ice Bar (there's only a few in the world) and the massive waterslide and plunge pool, oh and the night club with bowling alley and the disco/club with massive screen out on deck. Not a huge fan of The Blue Man Group however. Twas cool they were playing on board, but they're not my thing...a bit...try hard. There was a great range of cosmetics and beauty items in the shops on board: Smashbox, Elemis, Estee Lauder, YSL, etc. but sadly they didn't open as it was just an industry jaunt. Next time though, next time...

I tried to nick this chandelier for my bedroom, but it wouldn't fit in my suitcase:

I missed my wee blog though.

Here's a little Friday Night Quick Tip:
I am a massive perfume obsessive but I have weird Teflon skin to which fragrances just won't stick! So, I apply a light patch of Vaseline (the original, unperfumed one) to the areas I like to spritz (behind ears, wrists, inside of elbow) and this has proven to prolong fragrances quite well. I'm afraid I don't have 'the Science bit' for you on that, but it does work!

And a mini-tip: when applying perfume to your wrists don't rub them together as this can crush the perfume molecules, thereby altering the aroma...let the scent develop naturally.

Lots of properly beauty-related posts on the way; this weekend I'm having a good old rest, a bout of self inflicted starvation (see above) and blog catch up (oh, and Bon Jovi at the O2!). Although I do wish I was at IMATS in Pasadena.

Happy Friday!

  1. Awww man! I told you to bring the big suitcase!

  2. I never make the right suitcase choice - remember West Coast USA '08 and the Three Suitcase Saga. Never take more suitcases than you have arms to carry...go big instead!

    How much do you miss Pasadena? We need to go back! Especially now that we know it hosts IMATS!

  7. What on earth is IMATS?! I do miss L to tha A though... good times. Not with the fat baby I'll never get to go on a girly trip unless we win the lottery! This British 'summer' is crap. I leave the house wearing shorts but I got tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie in my bag! Sigh.
