Chapped Lips Be Gone, These Bad Boys are in Town


It’s that time of year where although you want to wear lipstick 24/7 and the darker the better, your lips themselves are crying out for moisture. So, when this happens it’s time to crack out the big guns.. so here are my 3 favourite lip balms!

Nivea Lip Care Essential (£1.69, Superdrug)
This is possibly, joint with the next lip balm my favourite. I have just started a new tube and I think a true representation of how much you love a product is a) if you use it all and b) if you go on to repurchase. What I love about this balm is not only that it’s in a twisty tube which means I don’t need to get my fingers dirty but it is truly a balm. As in, there’s no glossy finish, just pure moisture. I also find that when using, I don’t have to…

Make Up Geek Eyeshadow Haul – OMG


Why is it always the case that whenever you get gifted make up products, although something you would never probably pick for yourself, you completely fall in love with them and get annoyed at yourself for overlooking them in the past. So yeah, that’s just happened to me.

I was kindly gifted Make Up Geek shadows from Beauty Bay, four eyeshadows (one of which I already have so it’s going into the beauty giveaway drawer) which compliment each other so well that I just had to show you, and I’ll be sure to create an eye look for you soon using them.

Venom (£6, Beauty Bay) – this is the one I already have myself and if you wish to see which other MUG shades I have >>>read about them here<<< It’s a gorgeous warm green with a metallic finish and is perfect shade to use…

Writing about adversity…

A Hansen Chronicle


I have two favorite quotes i’m thinking about today. Though the topics they touch on are unrelated, they seem tightly intertwined for me:  writing and coping with adversity…

“Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”
(Isaac Asimov)

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”
(Ernest Hemingway)

I expect many of you can relate to both quotes, and that you know from experience how writing can be one way of working through adversity, if not during it, then in its aftermath.

Whether or not you write, if you find yourself facing adveristy of whatever sort, i wish you strength and peace.

Word association – Bipolar

The Bipolar Architect

Ever since I was a little dude I’ve always heard that old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Well they fucking lied. I’ve been eating apples for weeks now and it turns out, the more I eat them the more I seem to visit a doc. However, I cannot solely attribute my frequency of visiting providers solely to my dietary habits. But hey, week after next I do get to swallow a really neat piece of technology. A pill with a camera that will take pictures of my gastrointestinal system from beginning …to end. I had a test called flex sigmoidoscopy last week but that didn’t reach the target area to find what the specialist believes to be ailing me at the present moment. I was supposed to have a colonoscopy but the only person I know where I am currently residing…well I’m not their concern any…
