The H Edit: What I’m Loving This Week

Sampling the finest haute cuisine and experiencing monumental life events. Here’s what I’m loving this week…


Ran out of my favourite Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff so dug out his lesser used sister, Dusk. Poor Dusk was relegated the moment Puff arrived in all his pretty perky pinky glory. But Dusk is a dark horse. Halfway between bronzer and blush, on my skin tone, have taken to using it in the manner of a cream bronzer – cheekbones, down the nose, a little at the hairline – and it is perfect. Think they are coworkers, one ideal for summer the other putting in the winter shift. Glossier Cloud Paint, £15 or £25 for a duo, here.


Something monumental has happened this week. I went 24 hours straight without applying lip balm. If you are not in the grip of a lip balm addiction the gravity of this situation will escape you, but trust me it is an event. The only thing I can put it down to is the £16 Clinique lip balm, which is looking cheaper by the minute should the frequency of usage drop to just once a day. All hail. Clinique Moisture Surge Lip Hydro-Plump Treatment, £16, here.


Have made the switch, from Sainsbury’s to Ocado. Get me. Got fed up with Sainsbury’s and their substitutions and short dated stock. It has only been one week, so my only observation so far is thus: Ocado has a significantly better selection of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It also sells Birds Eye Sweet Potato Waffles. Sweet potato waffles! Yes, yes, get in my basket, yes. I mean, Sainsbury’s are also likely to stock said waffles but have they ever offered them to me as a suggested purchase? No, they have not.

Til next time,

    Sweet potato waffles????! Oh my life. Regular potato waffles are in the top 10 of items missed from UK living… And now there’s a new kid on the block?! Whaaat!!!

    Can I please request to sample one at our sleepover in a few weeks?! Then we need to work out how to get a frozen savoury waffle to the Americas…

    I also need your help in how to apply these cloud paint items of wonder…their paint- like tubes is both intimidating and inviting in equal measure.
