Bourjois! So pretty, so Parisian..

So, I was just doing my usual inane browsing of online Fashion mecca ASOS (it sure beats the dissertation), but today my eye has been caught not by all the gorgeous pastel dresses around at the moment (I’m sticking to my lilac skinnies, lest I go *too* Barbara Cartland esque) nor by the double denim trend, but instead by these gorgeous limited edition Bourjois blushes- oh how covetous!

Clockwise from top to bottom there’s the uber romantic Rose d’or,  soft +hazy  Lilas d’or and peachy-dream Ambre d’or. The blushes will set you back a mere £6.85 each, but I decided I couldn’t *bear* to choose just one, and have opted for all three. The way I see it, they’re a multi purpose buy; not just for contouring my cheeks but for adding a wee extra bit of shabby chic- credentials to my make up table. Clutching at straws- moi?


A New Leaf..

Hello all,

I have decided that rather than update my much loved (but much neglected) Domiknittrix blog, I would start an all new and improved version! I’m hoping to be branching out a little with this online venture, so as well as covering my usual fodder, female angsty issues (Don’t get me started on that Mooncup advert!) I’m going to try and get a bit of mainstream culture in the mix, be it what I think of the latest scenester album, or my reviews of only the finest fine art (Who wants to go to the Whitechapel?) . I’m hoping as well to get a few culinary trials up on here about as well, having been inspired by the Julie Powell’s delightful Julie and Julia book, where the author attempts to cook every one of the 524 recipes from Julie Child’s seminal Art of French Cooking, and blog about the results. I was thinking this curvy brunette could probably take on Nigella Lawson with some success, although I daresay she’s a lot more verbose than I am, and probably better at wielding a spatula in a seductive manner.

Somehow I don’t manage to look like this when tucking into several plates full of cake. But anyway, I can touch type, and that’s all that matters here.
