Ask me Anything!!

As an ending to my everyday may extravaganza, I thought it would be cool to record a Q&A video. But in order to do so I of course need your questions to answer. Leave a comment with your question and who knows? I might answer it in my final Everday May Video! Enjoy your Sunday!

Every Day May Announcement

EEEEEeeee! That is my squeal of excitement. Today I have a fun announcement for you. I am doing Every Day May this year. Every Day what? Every Day May, which means I will be posting a video every day in the month of May. Well not exactly every day as I would go crazy, so…

No blog post today!

Due to a lovely, but decidedly busy weekend, I was unable to prepare today’s review. In the mean time, you can have look at yesterday’s video (I vlogged my most recent London trip!), or read Saturday’s review on the Make Up Revolution x Soph eyeshadow palette. I will be back again tomorrow with my usual…

Happy New Year & Blog plans for 2019

Happy new year! May the new year bring you all you wish for! Today’s blog post is all about looking back on my blog in 2018 and a look ahead to my plans for my blog in the new year. I used to do a full year overview looking back on the year that was,…

Apologies!

I had totally prepared to have a video up today, or so I thought! But when I went to edit the video I had planned for today, I found out I had not transferred the files to my computer, but I had already deleted all the files from my camera. In short, that video is…

No blog today!

Just coming on here to let you know I won’t have anything up today. I had a lipstick review planned of the new Essence lipsticks, but I didn’t get around to writing the post as I have been doing some work on my house over the past few days which has left me feeling knackered….

Giveaway | Win makeup

It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get…

Announcement: August Palette Month

Step right up! Step right up! I have some exciting news for you. Well, I think it is exciting news, but I hope you do too. Since it is summer and since I love eyeshadow palettes, I thought I would combine those two and devote all of the month of August to eyeshadow palettes. All…

Merry Christmas!!!

Dear readers, followers & regular commenters, Today’s message is just to let you know that today and for the rest of 2017, I will not be writing any more blog posts or be putting up anymore videos. I’ve decided to take a little break until the new year. So as of today, until December 31st…

We interrupt this programme to bring you important news…

Today’s blog post is a quicky to let you know that today will be a little quiet on here and on Youtube. I have not been able to upload a video this weekend because of several reasons. That’s why I figured I would come here and give you a quick update instead. Sorry!!!

Happy birthday Floating in Dreams

I’m a day late, but that doesn’t mean there is less of a reason to party. By now this little space on the WWW has been around for 7 whole years. 7 years! If you’d told me seven years ago, this blog would still be around and I would still be doing this and enjoying…

The Real Neat Blog Award

A lovely follower of mine, who blogs over on Charmed Wench, left a comment on my blog recently to inform me she had nominated me for The Real Neat Blog Award. I was happy to see her comment and thought I would answer the questions and nominate a few bloggers of my own. Real Neat…

Win: L’Oreal la Palette Nude 1

To celebrate the fact that my blog turned 5 the other day, I thought I’d do a give away. This morning you could read a review of the twin sister of this product: it is the US drugstore palette L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1. Did you really think that I would go shopping in the…

A new year, a new theme & other changes

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me… Well not to ME, exactly, but to this blog! Today is the day that my blog celebrates its 5 year blog-anniversary. Five years of trying to keep this space going and five years of sometimes creative, or not so creative ideas, five years of 1000 word blog…

Christmas series

On Youtube everyone is doing Vlogmas, and my Christmas decorations have been up for a bit now. It’s almost Christmas so I thought: why not do Christmas inspired blog posts for a week running up to Christmas? Here’s what you can expect from this coming week’s blog posts. From Monday 15 December until Sunday 21…

Happy 4th blog anniversary!

Today is the day! September 4th 2010 was the first day my blog went live. I knew nothing about blogging, had never done it before and had no idea what to do. Here we are 4 years later and still going strong. And what a ride it’s been. Earlier this year I finally decided what…

Site update: new theme

Just a quick message. In case you didn’t notice yet: I picked a new theme for the blog. I think I used the old one (Blogum) for almost 2 years and I thought it was time for a change. What I like about this theme is that it is still clean and simple and has…

Happy 3rd blog anniversary to me!

Whoops I completely forgot, but thankfully WordPress reminded me. Three years ago, it was a cold, dreary September evening. It was Friday and I was bored. So I decided to do what any bored person would do: I started a blog. Springing from my desire to write, I had no direction, no idea, nor did…

No pictures?

Dear all, Due to a bandwith problem with my photobucket account pictures are not showing up on the blog. I have already upped my account and I am waiting for PB to activate the pictures again. I hope this will be done shortly. In the mean time I apologize for the inconvenience. M.

It’s been a while since I did one of these. In fact, the last time I asked what you, the reader, would like to see on here was almost 2 years ago. I have been noticing that new people have started reading my blog and so I am interested in what you would like to…

Happy 2nd Birthday to my blog + giveaway

Wooohoo! Yep it’s been 2 years. Two years since I decided to start this blog on a dreary September evening. At the time I didn’t even know how long it would last. I didn’t know what to write about or what I wanted my posts to look like or to be about. I just started…

***Update***: giveaway contest

Someone very rightly pointed out to me that you need a WordPress account to like posts. I wasn’t aware of this, so to make your lives easier I have decided to update the rules for the giveaway which I posted a few days ago. I will ALSO extend the deadline to make up for the…

500 blog post giveaway contest

It’s finally here! My 500 blog post giveaway! A little over a month ago I posted my 500th blog on this little nook on the web. At the time of that post I promised that I would have a giveaway contest to honor this amazing fact as without the people reading my daily musings this…

Why I blog: 500th post celebration!

Oh yes you got that right, this post, this very post you are reading right now is my 500th post on this blog! And I think that calls for a celebration. Because 500 posts ago I’d never have thought that I’d keep going for this long. Let’s throw some confetti and celebrate with me! So…

I got tired of the sunflower…

… So I changed my background color and removed the header. I think this color is more in line with fall than soft yellow.

Happy birthday to… this blog!

Today is the day! As of today I have been blogging for exactly one year. One year! Before I started I was afraid I couldn’t even keep a blog for a week and look at me now. I think it’s time to party and I can’t celebrate that by myself. So read on and join…

New layout Part 2

Wasn’t liking the previous layout after all. I also thought it too dark. I think this one is much nicer! It’s much brighter, plain and simple. Me likies! EDIT: Also added a header now!

New layout

I thought it was time for a new layout! What do you think? I’m not too sure about it yet. Your thoughts are welcome!

New theme!

I decided to change things up again. It’s been 3 months since I had a new look on my blog. This is the Choco theme that I’ve decided to give a go. I added a light blue background as I thought it would fit better with the changing weather and spring being on its way….

A change of color

Have no fear. This is still the same blog. I was just getting sick of the red, so I changed it for a brown color. What do you think?

No Blog Today

*Sings at the top of her lungs* No milk today, my love has gone away lalalalala lalalalalala. Just exchange the word ‘milk’ for ‘blog’ in that song lyric and you’ll get the title of this blog. So yeah, this is all I’ll be posting today since I’m off to go shopping for the rest of…

Blog Update: New theme & colors

Hey all! As you can see I’ve changed the look of my blog. Lemme know what you all think! Theme: Pilcrow Color: Red Banner: close up pic of the letter A on my CD rack ;-).  

Some new links

I decided to update my links page. It’s gonna be vacation soon and then I’ll add some more. I’m thinking of adding links to some of my favorite online stores as well as a page with links to some other blogs that I sometimes read but are totally random or not on my blog roll….

Lack of updates

Sorry for the lack of updates of the past couple of days. I haven’t been feeling well and have a hard time focusing on things. That’s why I haven’t been able to get inspired for any new posts. I will post again as soon as I have the energy to do so! See you soon.

Links

Please check out my links section. I just added a bunch of links to websites and blogs that I find interesting. Perphaps there’s something new there to be found out. There are 4 different categories right now. I will add to this section whenever I have any new links to share.

Welcome to my blog

Since this is the first post on this blog I do not have anything interesting to say just yet. For now, just check out my profile.
