God, I’m tired.

It’s 2.47am and I got home from London half an hour ago. I can’t write my Mother’s Day Gift Guide part 3, I need to focus properly to hone in on the tastiest of gifts and my brain is failing me.  I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little more coherent.

I’m very pleased that it’s Friday and I’m hugely delighted that the sun hasn’t disappeared yet (in the UK).  By the time you’re reading this, it’ll probably be raining or snowing or something.

I’m back in London on Sunday with the fam for The Vitality Show.  I can’t wait to attend!  I last visited back in 2007 and had an amazing time.  It was a really friendly-feeling show with some real ‘niche’ exhibitors.  I hope it lives up to my memories.  I may have stalked Rosemary Conley last time (going “OMG look, it’s Rosemary Conley!”)… but only for a couple of circuits of the show floor, nothing too criminal.

Before I collapse, I’ll just leave you with this snippet that managed to completely pass me by…

Apparently, it was National No Makeup Day yesterday.  *makes big W sign*.  I bought 3 lipsticks.

Did you wear make up yesterday?

    Ironically, yesterday was the only day all week that I did wear makeup! I’ve been buried in reading for the dissertation that I have to write next year, and I figure no one cares what my face looks like in the library lol.

    I wore make-up, didn’t know it was “No Make-up Day”! Is there an equivalent for men, like “No Lynx Day”!? That would be more appropriate, since Lynx stinks to high heaven.

    I had no idea it was No Makeup Day yesterday, I wore a full face. I went to the Vitality show yesterday and I did enjoy it (although last year was better). It was really nice talking to the people on the natural beauty brands – Pai, Evolve, Brown Earth and Organic Surge in particular as they really know their stuff and it was interesting to talk to people with enthusiasm for their products.
