Well, I guess it’s about time I said hello.  My name is Nicola, and I’m a UK-based makeup lover.  I’ve spent years lurking around the outskirts of the blogging and YouTube scene, and have finally decided to set up a blog of my own.  Basically, I needed a way to legitimise my makeup addiction!

I’m 36 years old, and have very pale, cool-toned skin.  Has anyone else noticed that makeup brands tend to make palettes that are mostly warm colours?  I got tired of searching for info on cool-toned makeup, and how to make warmer tones work for my skin, so I thought I’d share what I know.

Oh, and my cats.  I have three, but one of them is really camera shy.  So here are some pictures of my two Singapura girls, George and Albert.

This is George.  She is the dimmest of the two (and that’s an achievement).  She once got her head stuck in a yoghurt pot whilst trying to lick the dregs out of the bottom.  To try to escape, she started walking backwards.  It didn’t work, until she backed off the edge of the table and fell on to the foor.

Singapura cats

This is Albert.  As you can tell, she is a Glaring Cat World Champion.  No matter where she is or what she’s doing, she looks angry while she’s doing it.

To answer a few questions that I’m often asked about the girls:

  • They are an oriental-type breed called Singapura.  They are the smallest breed in the world, and it’s not recommended to let them go outside in case they get beaten up by the proper-sized cats.
  • Yes, they definitely are two different cats despite the fact that they look exactly the same.  I swear that I have seen them both in the same room at the same time on at least two different occasions!
  • Yes, I know that George and Albert are boy names.  When the kittens were first born, the breeder thought that they were boys.  Apparently it’s quite hard to tell!  So by the time we realised that they were girls, I had my heart set on their names.  To be fair, they’re so daft they have no idea what their names are, anyway.
