Vroom vroom but no cigar

HUGE disappointment with the Alfa Spider. Looks fab, goes fast but is terribly uncomfortable!

I decided to take my Thelma-and-Louise like business elsewhere and this weekend a Saab convertible is mine!

Don’t take me wrong,  in the spider I felt a moment of recklessness, sauciness and all that is BAD but I do like my comfort.

I will be experiencing the wind in my hair with an extra layer of padding and stability 🙂


Viva la Creme!

I usually purchase your run of the mill beauty products, nothing fancy, not very pricey but just enough to keep up the beauty routine.

Today everything changed!

In support of my current self improvement regime, which comes sporadically!, I purchased the Rolls Royce of cream. The gift from the sea: Creme de La Mer.

I reckoned I deserve a little pampering as I nervously handed the smallest size tub to the polished beautician. I held a poker face as the total is read out to me and I handed over my credit card. Of course I ALWAYS use this cream, darling!

When I got home I removed the tub from the its square box just to find the smallest of spoons in the bottom.

I nervously read the instructions and went about cleaning my face. So as to get the ful benefit of my first attempt. I carefully dipped the little spoon in the Miracle cream and rubbed it between my fingers to activate the special broth.

After application I studied my face carefully in the mirror…yes, the lines did appear less!

Viva la Creme!

I think I am a customer forever as I eased the tub into a drawer overflowing with other inferior miracle tubs.
