Desperate Housewives

On Channel 4:10pm Wednesdays and the next week’s episode on E4 at 11pm. Starring Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria, Nicolette Sheridan, Brenda Strong, James Denton…
Well you’ve got to watch it haven’t you! We’re all desperate for something new and exciting, but it doesn’t entirely live up to the comparisons to Sex in the City, which really was new and exciting. The first episode I loved – I couldn’t believe it – are Americans really taking the piss out of themselves? There was also the rude bits and the funny bits and the touch of suspense because something mysterious was going on. And I recommended it to everyone I know who hadn’t seen it. (My sister-in-law).
But the 2nd episode was a bit disappointing. But it picked up again this week and I am actually looking forward to the next one.
If you haven’t seen it yet, then it’s in Neighbours Style – all set in one lovely shiny new set, which looks like a street, but too shiny. The woman – all desperate housewives (all desperate for various reasons) – get together every now and then to chat, but it doesn’t get anywhere near as rude as the SATC girls. But then it couldn’t anyway as that would be too copy-cat-ish. It is narrated and told by one of the wives, who killed herself, and gradually the mystery as to why is being unravelled.
In the side-lines, one of them fancies the new guy who moved in opposite (who has a gun and a map with info on all of them taped inside his cupboard); one of them can’t cope with her energetic kids, one of them is in marriage guidance counselling because she’s turned into an obsessed perfect housewife, and one of them is shagging her gardener.
Not as much sex as we were led to believe, but never-the-less, a very good fun program to watch in the evening.

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….

Cath Kidston gift ideas for Mothers’ Day
February 28, 2018
I was given this beautiful set of Cath Kidston hand creams and some beautiful Gift Baskets for Women for my birthday last year, and it occurred to me what a lovely gift anything by Cath Kidston would be for Mothering Sunday. Now, oddly enough, this gift also has been listed as one of the best gifts for tattoo artists, which quite left me flummoxed. Either way, her products combine the two things that make the perfect present – something pretty and something practical….
