Christmas Day Cheese Platter With A Stinky, Stinky Blue



I wanted a delectable cheese platter for Christmas dinner at my mother's house, to add something special to the day, as well as a gift for my mum. I searched high and low at the places near me, with little success. I eventually threw in towel, and headed to Victoria Market, knowing that I would leave with a few wonderful choices cradled in my hands.

Cruelty-Free or Not? Whiteglo Toothpaste



I thought it was time I told you lot about this toothpaste I recently switched to. Readers, please meet Whiteglo. This brand is reported to be cruelty-free, with the added benefit of being vegan-friendly. I initially bought the toothpaste in the first place because I hoped to whiten my tea-stained choppers, and I couldn't find another whitening toothpaste that were both vegan and cruelty-free. That said, it's taking a long time to whiten my teeth with this product, even when I abstain from drinking my much-loved sweet cups of tea.

How To Make Your Own Exfoliating Lipstick




I'm a lazy bugger when it comes to exfoliating my lips in preparation for any kind of lipstick application. I cannot be bothered with digging my finger into a pot of sugar scrub, and rubbing a decent glob of it against my lips. C'mon, it's messy, inconvenient, and takes more effort than I'd like to spare.

But what about when I forget to exfoliate my lips with my toothbrush?

The Lipstick Diaries Entry #5: Essence Longlasting Lipsticks



Could you believe that I haven't done an Essence post yet? There really isn't a good reason for this, except that I didn't really have any Essence products in my arsenal. Until now, that is. I blame E.L.F. Cosmetics, really, because if it hadn't been for my loyalty to them, I would've bought Essence goods much, much earlier. I think I was a bit afraid of using their products just in case they all didn't work out for me, but I've come to see otherwise.

A Not-So Stinky English Shropshire Blue



Oh look! Another cheese post! Today I'm talking about a cheese that I've never had the fortune of trying, much less had the pleasure of finding at the local Woolworths. It is part of the Woolworths Gold range, a range of artisan and gourmet food. I'm not complaining, because it sounds like the cheese is the real deal, hailing all the way from Leicestershire, England. In Leicestershire, there is a small town named Long Clawson, and that is where one would find the Long Clawson Dairy, the award winning producer of 60 varieties of cheese.
