Sudocrem - the wondercream

Apologies if you already knew this, but sudocrem is AMAZING.

There's a tub of it in our house, which has been left unused for years (and I mean years). But when someone called it a blemish wonder cream, I thought I'd give it a go.

And holy crap, IT WORKS!!

I'm quite skin-lucky, but when I do get spots (once a month, if you know what I mean..), then I get them with a vengeance.

They're like dormant volcanoes under my skin: "Her immune system is down, let's burst out of her pores - gigantic, furious, red, and full of puss - YEAAAH"

So the other night, I had one of these - a lurking spot.. Ginormous under the skin, sore and tender, waiting to manifest itself into a full-blown, red, bulbous, volcano.

I sudocremed it (yeah, that's totally a verb), and here are the results:

Day 1:

It's gone! OK, not quite - but I'm completely astounded by the results.

It's no longer red, sore, painful, or threatening to my social life.

Day 2:

OK, it really has disappeared! There are no visual signs of a spot, but I can feel a teeny little lump underneath the skin.

Day 3:

It's completely clear. when I'm run down/ill/surfing the crimson wave, those spots are evil. They can literally take weeks to calm down, let alone disappear.

Until I discovered this wonder ointment.

I'm going to try bathing in it next.

Have you tried Sudocrem yet? Isn't it amazing? Am I just telling you what you already knew?!

Review: Kate Spade nail appliques

Polka dots are always in fashion. So I was so thrilled that Kate Spade in Westfield sent me these gorgeous dotty nail appliques to try!

They're so kitsch, cute, but a little bit sexy - can you spot the cheeky spade hidden in the design? 

But most importantly, they're very easy to apply. I'm a huge advocate of nail wraps/appliques, the designs are always awesome, and I cannot be arsed to wait around for my nails to dry - no matter how long I wait, they ALWAYS seem to smudge or wrinkle from a rogue finger print.

So how do you apply these bad boys?

You'll need: small scissors, a rough nail file, a "hoof" tool, and a hair dryer!
Simple, simple steps: 

1: Find a wrap that fits your nail, or cut one to size (cut them on the cardboard - it's much easier)

2: Heat the glue underside gently with the hair dryer - this will make the wrap stickier and more malleable.

3: Carefully apply the warm wrap to your nail, using the hoof tool to secure the edges.

4: That's it!

To remove, just wait weeks and weeks (like I do), until they become torn at the edges and you have to rip them off.

But if you actually care about the general well-being of your nails, then just lightly heat the wraps with the hair dryer and peel off, gently and slowly. Or, some bloggers say you can remove them with nail polish remover, although I've never tried that.

Cute, huh?!

the ASOS penis blouse

I've got some questionable items in my wardrobe.

But this is taking the 'pearl necklace' to a whole new level.

But if you don't have enough penises around your neck, then buy yours here.

Review: Bibido


I wish I'd thought of the concept - it's bloody brilliant.

Wanna know why? It's a subscription which delivers pleasure and fantasy every single month - like a Glossy Box for your sex life. A mystery box full of delightfully sexy, but incredibly luxurious, surprises - goodies to wear, touch, taste, and play with.

Gone are the days of cheap, plasticky, crap sex products and games from places like Ann Summers. Bibido offers inspiring, suggestive, luxury items to indulge with - solo or with your partner.

This month's subscription contained:
  • A set of beautifully crafted, heavy, metal die with saucy suggestions such as "below waist", "grind" and "you choose"
  • A delicious edible chocolate and citrus massage candle.  Its beautiful warm glow, divine scent, and delicious taste are perfect for erotic massage - setting the mood so you can get in the mood (see what I did there?!)
  • Sensual, understanding, and straight-forward directions for beginners
  • Tips, ideas, and a (very) short erotic story, all for inspiration

I think the subscription is fairly reasonable. Yes, it's £35 per month (including £2 for post & packaging), or you can get a 3 month gift pack. But this could be a really awesome/different present for a friend, or an exciting treat for you to enjoy for a whole month, before the next box of goodies arrives. And I seriously cannot stress how luxurious and expensive the products feel, smell, and taste.

I can't wait for my next box of saucy treats!

So...what do you think to Bibido?
