Up to Tricks – 46: Get Down with the Lingo with Costa Bingo

Costa Bingo is “up to tricks” in new video series.  Playing tricks or practical jokes on people is something that many of us love to do. Whether it’s a simple slight-of-hand magic trick or an April Fools, we all derive happiness and pleasure from small tricks. And it seems we’re not alone … Costa Bingo has also shown their love of tricks in this great video:   Part of their ongoing campaign to document all 90 bingo calls in 90 videos, the video is the perfect summary of our favourite call – number 46: up to tricks.

#NOTD Hot Pink Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure and O.P.I Silver Shatter Topcoat

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cherry Up This was my first time using this particular varnish.  I am a huge fan of Sally Hansen products, especially the topcoats, so I was keen to try it. It is a glossy, hard wearing polish that I would most certainly buy again, though I love this colour.

I found I had to apply one really thick coat for a decent […]

Firstly, I understand if you think this post might not be relevant […]

Two trends entwined: The Neon Rainbow and Cool Mint – A Perfect Partnership

Imagine me (if you dare) skipping round the playground in junior school in hot neon tops and fluorescent culottes.  A neon shellsuit was at the top of my Christmas list, and I coveted my friends neon shoelaces.  Yes, that was the 90’s, at least it was for a pre-adolescent. Just for kicks, here is one of the maybe three pictures I have of myself when young, at about 14-15. [I had ditched the shell suit in favour of blue hair mascara.  A step up but just barely. So here I am at 31, minding my own business and getting on […]
