Beauty Drama At the Airport

Beauty Drama At the Airport

How could there possibly be a beauty drama at the airport?

Well, I had one.


So it was definitely not life altering or life threatening and a very tiny drama in the scheme of life but it could have ended badly; I might have been a very unhappy traveller.


Let’s back up a bit.

The Best French Television Series

The Best French Television Series

My vote for the best French television series would not include Versailles.

I was excited to watch Versailles but after three episodes I cannot say I’m hooked and far from it. The visuals are intriguing but that is where it stops for me. Perhaps it will warm up.

I will show my hand at the start here, I am a big fan of the French television series. I enjoy them for a variety of reasons not least because it is an excellent way to practise the language. Looking at my lists I must have a penchant for the police drama and the political intrigue.


I have four I have recently watched and others queued up; I think if you are in need of an escape and a little down time, look no further.

Barbra Streisand: Another Beautiful Face

Barbra Streisand: Another Beautiful Face

Barbara Streisand is another beautiful face.

I am a long time admirer of this fabulous looking woman. She is talented, super successful and I believe a woman who has aged incredibly well. Streisand has managed to retain her own signature style forever.

Ever since Funny Girl, Hello Dolly and What’s Up Doc not to mention The Way We Were (that must be the all time best chick flick ever) I have watched her movies. I realise it is her singing voice, her enormous talent with the vocals where Barbra Streisand’s fame lies, but I enjoy her movies. Two of my favourites, the less well known Prince of Tides and The Mirror Has Two Faces are worth a watch if you have not already seen them.

6 Ways To Exercise When There Is No Time

6 Ways To Exercise When There Is No Time

6 ways to exercise when there is “no” time?

I would say the “no time” excuse is the big fib I tell myself too often. I know there is time but it is just so easy to prioritise everything else. Know what I mean? “No time” often means poor planning as well as a dose of reluctance.

We do know small bursts of exercise can boost mood, increase confidence, relieve stress, improve health, and keeps us trim.

Lily thought of 6 ways to exercise when there is “no time” to exercise.

My score 3/6. How did you do?

On Location: A Good Year

On Location: A Good Year

One of the most endearing features of A Good Year is the locations.

If you have a trip planned to Provence you might like to visit some of the areas where the movie was made.

A Good Year was filmed in the region of Provence called the Luberon.

And the dialogue,

Legendary Lashes

Legendary Lashes


Legendary lashes?

I had them last year for a short time but they were extensions.

Have you tried extended lashes?

I loved them. The lashes worked for me for some months; they looked natural and I could wake up each morning and do my eye make-up in seconds.

A quick flick with the pencil and they were done.

They lasted for nearly two months before looking patchy and then a lash refill gave me another month.
