The Eyes Have It

Okay, Lizz, you did ask and I’m (foolishly) going to share what H. told me the other night about eye make-up. Well here goes – but I cannot be held accountable for the effects. By the way, any fashionistas reading this? Stop reading now! 🙂 Are we ready? It’s time for Listen and Learn With Lynn. Stop that sniggering at the back! Equipment A good light source. A mirror (preferably not hand held). Three shades of eye shadow (3 browns?) A small brush – probably about the size of your little finger. A smaller brush (!!) – hopefully angled slightly. Dark eye pencil – soft tipped is easier. Mascara Plenty of make-up removal tissues / cleanser to remove and restart […]

Conversations

Talking shop Widow Twanky has trained you well, but now, I am the master. Last Friday P. and I went out for a meal at a posh local resturant. If it’s the midlands, posh means they put down fresh straw. But, hey, it was good enough for the Messiah, it’s good enough for us. 🙂 It was a great night out. The company was excellent (her, not me!) and it was interesting to see what the other diners were up to. One of the high points for me was P. and I had a conversation about make-up and how you do it. Truth be told, it wasn’t initiated by me and I learned (learnt?) a lot. I now realise I’ve […]

Thursday

Cr*p Blog Titles I was going to make some weak pun on Straight Outta Nuthall (by Transgender With Attitude) but I decided against it at the last minute. Maybe I’ll save the alternative lyrics for a slow news day….. Quiet at the back! 🙂 It’s been a good week (so far). I managed to get through the whole week without anything bad happening to myself or my family. I guess you should always be thankful for the these things. Thursday Social Nottingham’s TG group rolled around (not literally) this week and it was at the new venue in Nuthall. Thursday’s trip was a little different as having read that the changing facilities weren’t up to much, I got changed at […]

Test Run

Unlike the Boomtown Rats, I don’t mind Mondays. Everyone goes out of the house like a bullet from a gun. Lazy so-and-so that I am, I lig about a bit, get up, have a shower, etc. A bath on an evening is lovely – especially to just lay in and soak your cares away – but a shower on a morning, is, well, a different type of good. Envigorating yet relaxing and you come out clean. What’s not to like? 🙂 Plus, I always seem to get a better shave in the shower. Must be the heat. Afterwards, I have some breakfast and think about leaving the house – Woah, now is it me or is this post turning into […]

Internet Activity

Roses Finally, the mystery of denial to Rosesforum has been solved. After a couple of posts to the forum – via a very slow public proxy – Sarah W came to my rescue and suggested that I may have been blacklisted for surfing the forum too much…. and she was right. Social Calendar Next week sees Nottingham Chameleons at a new venue and I’m looking forward to going. On Saturday there’s another gig – so to speak – this time in Leicester. I’ll see what P. has anything planned. Of course, the downside with going out is that you have to plan what to wear! Still, it’s not like that’s a chore when you’re TG is it. You can while […]
