Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear? My childhood trauma of never being able to buy shoes back home- I had huge feet that they didn’t stock sizes for (and had to shop overseas)- is making me overcompensate by being a total shoe fiend now. I have an entire cupboard of… Read more »
To post or not to post. That is the question. I once read that Pete Cashmore posted up to 6 times a day when he first started Mashable. So obviously I had to 1 up him and post SEVEN times when I rebooted Hapiness, Wherever. Of course, that didn’t last 😛 It dwindled, but posting… Read more »
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Begging notice: I only have 2 followers at the moment, so any new ones would be loved to death! Recently, I re-discovered my cheese obsession.

I think spray paint is an amazing addition to the cupboard of any DIY-er/ crafter. It really gives a piece more oomph and makes it look more upmarket. And it’s so versatile! Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to get it if you only have 1 project to make so I thought a list of 3… Read more »

Beauty review: Benefit’s Benetint
OMG at £22, I must have been crazy to get this! But I caved because I had been craving my Tony Moly lip tint, and since I wasn’t planning a visit to Korea anytime soon, I figured at >40x the price, the Benetint should at least be as good, right? WRONG. What I liked about… Read more »

Review: Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick… not the bee’s knees
I’ve been reading about Burt’s Bees in American magazines since I was a teenager so upon seeing this in a drugstore when I was in New York last year, I decided to give it a go. Sadly, it’s not all it’s hyped up to be- it did ZILCH for my skin 🙁 (but it didn’t harm… Read more »
