  1. I'm currently looking forward to the wedding tomorrow. I'll be five all over again watching Charles & Di! I'm annoyed that the radiator I said was about to fall off really did today. Glad I was there to catch it. I'm experiencing joy at some RBR beauties that came my way. Oh and big joy that the paint the Biochemist chose for downstairs has a subtle hint of mauve. ;)

    See you on twitter for the wedding! x

  3. I agree with you on the bananas. I prefer them to be just a bit green and a tad hard. I don't like when they are mushy *blech*

  8. your commitment (addiction?) to makeup brushes cracks me up. i like my fingers...

    but we would totally fight over the slightly green bananas. i love them when they are still a little tart.

    however... that overly ripe smell is delightful in perfume - a la sira des indes! so i'm getting to the point where i don't mind the odor so much in "real life."

    cheers,
    minette
