Rainbow Kaleidoscope Nails

I first discovered the world of stamping nail art way back in 2009 and have amassed quite the collection of various plates over the years. Still, until I ordered some new plates recently from MoYou London, I’d managed to forget quite how much I loved it. Despite looking mega intricate, this was stupidly easy to achieve, if a little time consuming. They probably took about …

IMATS London 2015: Stuff what I bought

I think I’ve managed to do something I’ve never done at any previous IMATS before, and been totally sensible with all my purchases. Usually, I’ll look over everything I bought when I get home and think ‘sigh, what did I buy that for, I know I’ll never use it’ about at least one product.

IMATS London 2015: In Pictures

I am pleased to report that my immune system didn’t completely fail for my sixth consecutive visit to IMATS London (you might remember I was mega ill last year and just spent the whole time moaning about it).

The majority of mashups you’ll come across will be one song’s vocals pasted over another’s backing track, but it’s all about the ones that utilise the music and lyrics …

Recipe: Sticky Jim Beam BBQ Chicken Wings

We quite like a bit of Jim Beam in this house. We also quite like a bit of smoky, sweet BBQ. Add the two together and what do you get? Jim Beam Bourbon BBQ Sauce*, of course. Add that to a pile of fresh chicken wings and what do you get? A damn good dinner, that’s what. Plain, raw chicken wings can be pretty hard …
