you’ll look at this photo and wonder several things

Why doesn’t she wear her hair like that more often?

What’s the shite all over her face?

Why would anyone put a photo of themselves online… looking like THAT?

Well, best beloved, let me try to answer some of those questions for you… now.  I don’t wear my hair like that more often because of my enormous fivehead.  I put this photo up online for your laughing pleasure because we’re not that vain here at ImogenMaxwell.com

And that shite all over my face is a mixture of crushed aspirin, water and honey.  Save your WTFs until after you’ve read this, from hilariookie beauty-blogger extraordinaire, Michaela Williams (who is, apparently, incidentally, a distant cousin of mine.  Check out her blog at http://www.latherrinserepeat.com.au).

So, since you’ve read all about aspirin facials now, I won’t bother going into detailed explanations here.  As regular readers will know from my use of Vegemite as makeup and constant references to makeup I “bought 100 years ago in Australia”, keepin’ it cheap is part of my whole deal.  Suffice to say that aspirin facials work, and they’re cheap.  Which sounds much more like us, now doesn’t it?

oh that’s handy

ain’t nobody got time for that

Do you want to try a new brand of foundation, but don’t want to fork out only to find it’s the wrong colour?  Don’t want to talk to the scary sales assistants?  Buying online and just aren’t sure?

Well check this website out:


You can choose from their extensive list of existing brands and colours, enter the details of a product that you already have that you know matches your skin… and it’ll give you a choice of other brands and their colours that will (in theory) match you too!

Ta daaa!
