Cloud Art

An astounding display of cloud art this evening.       Nature sure knows how to put on a show.

Out Of This World

Out Of This World

Finally, a red wine review. I have to admit I bought the bottle because of the label. Luckily, it also contains a very good wine. The backstory is as charming as the drawing: It is often said that there are more people who have travelled […]

Au Naturel

Au Naturel

Undercover agent. ‘Round the clock protection. Process of elimination. You know it’s working when there’s nothing to notice. So you can wear your nice clothes, no worries. Brighter, whiter. Pepperminty fresh teeth and breath. Clean between. Not just flavoured floss. Smile string. Pump, pump. Wash, wash. Cleans […]

Va-Va-Volume

Va-Va-Volume

Your lashes, but better. Bigger. Volume-luscious mascara. Shade Very Black looks like falsies, but you’re not faking it.  

French Mist

French Mist

A facial spray sourced from thermal springs in the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France. Soothing, softening, and calming for sensitive skin. After cleansing, after sports, after sun, after shaving, after make-up as a setting spray. Before or after anything for instant refreshment and hydration. Cult status: […]

Metallic Tattoo

Metallic Tattoo

Rosé Renaissance

Rosé Renaissance

June has been declared Rosé Month. (Alas, a month with only 30 days.) This seems like a charming way to welcome warmer weather. Especially when you have a fresh mountain stream in which to chill it. The wine is a local (BC) one: THERAPY PINK FREUD  This […]

Pink Princess

Pink Princess

The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations were in full swing this weekend in England. In keeping with her famous maximum, I have to be seen to be believed, her majesty donned a lime (some say neon) green ensemble by British dressmaker Stewart Parvin for the Trooping The Colour. It may have been Gan Gan’s big day […]

Blushing

Blushing

My world-wide-web friend, Wendy, from a YouTube channel I subscribe to, Wendy S The Loving Fifty, has mentioned my blog in the most flattering way in her latest video. We’ve chatted through the comments on her site as well as by email (mainly about handbags), […]
