Unable to cope with the immenseness of it all I have tried to ignore it, bury my head in the sand and distract myself by staring for hours on end at the pattern on my duvet. I feel neglected.
Dave is going; that is for certain and I haven’t seen Boris for days. Even the girls I thought I could rely on have been noticeable by the distance I feel between us. Theresa and Andrea seem to have been so embroiled in their own contretemps they have had little time for me. Perhaps now Angela is splitting from Jeremy with what seems like deep acrimony, she and I might find something in common.
For the time being the only person I seem to be able to rely on is that nice man at the bank, Mark, I think he’s called. Maybe it’s time to see him again, although I know he’ll only tell me that times are going to be tough and I have to cut back.
How did I ever get into this mess in the first place? It’s not my fault. Now I’m not so angry, I just feel sad for what might have been, what we had and what we’ve lost. I think I’ll go and take another look at the pattern on that duvet.
Dear Readers – get that reference and win a prize! – it’s my BIRTHDAY shortly but this post is completely unrelated to that. Rest assured I have been very much in the birthday spirit of late and spending like someone will take all of my money away if I leave it in my account for too long so you can expect a post on my recent online splurges very soon. Anyway.. Here’s what I got in my January box!
I’m not a huge fan of hand cream usually, I rarely have a period of time during the day where I’m not using my hands so having them covered in lotion is my idea of a nightmare. If I find one I really like I reserve it for bedtime but even that’s tough as I’m often glued to my phone/laptop/ipad moments before I’m asleep. This is not greasy and absorbs pretty fast so it’s a nice one to keep in my bag and apply at work.. I can still type but my hands feel hydrated – score!
I don’t usually use higher end mascaras because I don’t think they’re any better than the cheaper ones you can buy.. and this was no exception. The small brush makes it perfect for my lower lashes but it just doesn’t do anything special for me. That being said I don’t love many mascaras.. maybe that’s why I rarely feel like splurging on them. Full Size: £23 for 9g
Overall I was really happy with this box, next month (or this month I suppose) we have been promised a surprise item which is pretty exciting as the whole premise behind Love Me Beauty is that you have a pre-determined set of menus and you know what to expect but the idea of one surprise item definitely intrigues me!
