A night at the theatre, with chunks

Oh Jasmine, we’ve never officially met but I just wanted to say that I am glad we had the good sense to put some distance between you and us on Friday night. And I can’t help but wonder just how you are feeling today. Who is Jasmine, you may ask? And indeed, that is a good question. We went along to the 2 Degrees Comedy Convoy show (part of the NZ International Comedy Festival) on Friday night...

Color Club Poptastic nail polish

Color Club Poptastic nail polish

I really wanted to love this. The colour was that awesome bright pink shade on the left, which was a bit of a shocker for me:  I don’t normally do pink colours at all, and especially not bright pink, but this was just so bright and cheerful that I couldn’t help smiling. And once painted on the nails, the colour developed an amazing depth. The first coat looked a little wishy-washy, the second coat...

Sebamed Anti Dry Derma-soft Wash Emulsion

Manicare Invigorating Sponge

A basic sponge with a textured fabric cover, this  “Invigorating Sponge” is supposed to be good for regular shower or bath use to exfoliate all over. I know the experts say exfoliation is a good thing but I’m afraid I always end up feeling like I’ve been sanded, but this one was nearly user-friendly. With the promise of improved circulation and “glowing soft skin”, I gave this a try. I’ve been treading very gently,...

Carol Priest cherry lip balm

Carol Priest cherry lip balm

I’ve never been a great fan of cherry-flavoured anything so wasn’t overly enthusiastic about trying this. However, I gave it a shot and have to say that flavour-wise, it wasn’t totally disgusting. In fact, it was almost inoffensive. Unfortunately, the balm is quite greasy to start with, then disappears rather quickly. Stick with Chapstick. CAROL PRIEST Cherry Lip Balm (RRP $17.50 for 10ml)
