I’m pretty sure I made the record for the number of times a person can get lost in one day last Wednesday. Things started to go wrong as soon as I reached the tube station. I was so happy to see the train already waiting there for me, I jumped inside without looking where it was going. Oops!
When I finally managed to get on the right train, stupid Google Maps made me get off at the wrong station. Worse was to come. That afternoon, a 40 minute walk from Brompton Road, where Harrod’s is located, to Oxford Street turned into a 2 hour marathon. I kid you not.
Armed with Google Maps, City Mapper, and the hundreds of city maps scattered throughout London, I still managed to take the wrong turn at every crossroad. I mean it. Every crossroad. Then, on my tube journey home, I got so engrossed in a book I completely missed my stop. Typical, isn’t it?
It felt like the universe was plotting against me. I get lost a lot (it’s why I always leave the house at least 40 minutes in advance), but never that many times in a row. On the plus side, my body has never been more toned. All that getting lost and running in circles keeps it in good shape!
Lola Long Lasting Brows. It’s a new brow treatment that sculpts and builds the brows with customized colour, providing a three dimensional, very natural look that lasts up to three weeks.
I was lucky enough to try it at the launch event and was blown away! My eyebrows look absolutely perfect, and like I was born with them. You can’t tell I had anything done to them.
Full review coming soon, but I just wanted to give you a sneak peek because this is one of the most exciting launches I’ve seen in a while. And, as a beauty blogger, I see a lot! There’s a catch, though. Lola Brows is addicting! You won’t want to use anything else on your brows ever again!
Keepsake True Love Skirt and Top. So chic and modern, don’t you think?
Rene Caovilla is one of my fave shoe designers. His Gold Heeled Sandals with Bows are simply adorable.
Woman and Nature: The Roaring Inside Her by Susan Griffin
This is one of those books you’ll either love or hate. It doesn’t follow any literary conventions. The writing is visceral, emotional, raw, episodic, and, at times, disconnected.
But the message is very powerful. In the first part of the book, Griffin shows us how patriarchal Western thought and religion have used science and language to subjugate and exploit both women and nature. In the second part, women wake up to their situation and utter their response.
