I at times find it difficult to blog. If the inspiration is not there, I can’t make myself write. Fortunately I have gotten better over the past couple of weeks, and I put it down as being at least in part to reading blogs that inspire me. These are just some of the blogs that inspire me to write.
I admit it. I do not really see the appeal of MAC. While they do some beautiful products, I think they are a little overpriced. That said, while out for lunch with Paula from Random Ramblings and Musings before Christmas, we found ourselves in the MAC Store on Henry St. ogling the lipstick selection. There was quite a bit of lust, and after some discussion, I was convinced to buy one (my first MAC product). And I have to tell you, I’m glad I did!
It’s been so long since I’ve posted a playlist. For those of you who are new to my playlists, let me explain a little. I have quite a love of music, and thanks to being a former internet radio DJ, I have a bit of a collection. For my playlists I hit shuffle and let my music player spit out 5 songs, which I then share with you. Your duty by reading this is to tell me what you think of my musical tastes and hopefully recommend something else for me to listen to. Keep in mind that even though I missed most of it, I am an 80′s girl. So, after the jump you will find my (possibly dodgy) musical taste.
At the Christmas Blogger Meetup I was lucky enough to be given a jar of The Homemade Soap Company’s hand cream. I’ll be honest, I love hand cream. I get nearly sexual pleasure in finding a really awesome one (hey, don’t judge me) and having tried many, I can say that this is one of my favourites. So, just how did I get on with it?
On Friday evening I was invited to the blogger launch of Benefit‘s new wonder product – Fakeup hydrating concealer, in the delightful personal shopping suite of Harvey Nichols Dundrum.
It was my first time attending a Benefit event, so I wasn’t sure quite what to expect, but I diligently made my way to Dundrum to see what all the hoo-ha was about.
This is a little bit of a waffling post for me, so bear with me. It’s also the first thing I’ve written in a while, so it may not make much sense. If not, I apologise.
Some of you may have read my About Me page. Some of you, not (to those of you in the latter group, it’s over there. Have a read)
In short. I’m transsexual. Most of you just know me as Robyn, while some of you may also know my other half. He’s kinda a less glamourous, less confident version of me, with pretty dull dress sense (seriously, there’s only so many versions of shirt and trousers you can do!)
I had made a new years resolution to blog more often. Once a week, really, and so far I have failed at that. It’s not that I have nothing to blog about, but more of a I need to kick myself up the ass and get to it (note to self: get more flexible so I can actually do that) Anyway, I hope to make amends (partially) today with a little post about a recent NOTD look.
Can you turn a milk bottle into a golden Goddess? Or just into a tangoed terror?
This has always been my big problem with tan (well that and I can’t tan naturally – I’ve the best Irish skin ever), so I have always been a bit afraid of fake tans. However, being the intrepid blogger that I am, and having been inspired by Marissa Carter, owner of Carter Beauty and creator of Cocoa Brown Tan, I decided to take the plunge and try it out. Would I reach the golden Goddess nirvana, or just look like an overgrown escapee from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory? Read on to find out?
So, first of all, an apology. I do enjoy blogging, but recently I have been suffering badly from bloggers block. I try to write when I feel inspired to write, but lately that inspiration just hasn’t been there. I’m going to try writing a couple of posts to see what I can come up with, so if it leads to some nonsensical jabbering, just bare with me.
Now, to business. I make no bones about it. I love food. Give me good food and good company and I’m a happy Robyn. Incidentally, one of my favourite foods is caramel. Give me caramel in any of its forms, on its own, in something, on something (or one) and I’m yours forever. (Use that information how you want) Keep reading »
