Motown

This jukebox musical has one of greatest set-lists ever… 

I’m bereft that Motown: The Musical‘s London showing comes to an end this Spring. I have actually booked a day off work to watch it twice at the end of the month. Some might say I don’t have a life, others might say I have my priorities in the right place.

It’s honestly the best musical I’ve seen since Lion King, and Tina Tuner: The Musical is a close third. I’ll be going to see the latter for leisure again this Summer. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a journalist and review selected stage shows for a publication, on a freelance basis.

Back to Motown: The Musical

Motown: The Musical is a jukebox musicalthat premiered on Broadway in April 2013. The musical is based on Berry Gordy‘s autobiography To Be Loved: The Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown (1994),[1] and on the history of his founding and running of the Motown record label, and his personal and professional relationships with Motown artists such as Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson. The production’s music and lyrics are taken from selections from the Motown catalog.[2] It received four nominations at the 67th Tony Awards.

If you’re looking for a boogie, visit the Shaftesbury Theatre in Tottenham Court Road, London before Motown closes its doors.

Motown is my favourite genre of music of all time. I was born in the wrong era. Next.

The tickets are cheaper than they were. They cost less than Hamilton or Harry Potter.

Laura Mercier

High pigment, high performance, oil-free foundation creates a flawless canvas that lasts up to 12 hours. Makeup artists love how it feels comfortable on skin while hiding even hard-to-cover imperfections. Designed for normal to oily skin. Smooths skin texture and visibly evens skin tone. Color-true pigments virtually disappear on skin for smooth, even application and blending.

Introducing my current favourite foundation, Laura Mercier’s Silk Creme Oil Free. I ‘found’ that this ‘dation’ left my face looking flawless. It left a glow in all the right places, and matted up all the wrong.

Surprisingly, one of its 16 shades matched my skin-tone to a t-shirt. Yes, I accidentally ended up wearing it on my shirt a few times. Luckily, I have a washing machine.

I also have a camera, and have noticed this makes my photos look LIKE-worthy. I serve LUKES now (not the name). 😜

It’s my favourite foundation since Cargo HD.

Dior

Alohahahaha = the Hawaiian laugh.

In other news, here’s my blog about Dior’s It-Lash Mascara. Are you ready? You better be. If not, don’t worry – there’s still time.

Dior Addict It-lash can transform the eyes in a single sweep for a fabulous impact, as if by magic. Volume, length and the most extraordinary stylistic effects come together to achieve a fashion-forward, modern-day doe-eyed look. With unconditional hold, easy to apply and easy to remove, it is the ideal mascara for women who want it all, and want it now.

It’s honestly the best mascara I’ve used in a long time. I’ve been blessed with longer-than-average lashes. So, not all mascara wands work for me, but this one does.

I look for volume, length and curl. This particular mascara does it all. It’s the triple threat of mascaras.

No, it doesn’t come cheap as the ones on the high street, but – it’s Dior. Loved by all Christians.

 

Lush Goddess

Bathe in a swirling purple galaxy. Drop this gorgeous globe into the water and let the sensual jasmine, rose and oudh oil fragrance envelop you. Creamy cocoa butter waters and shimmering plastic-free luster make you feel like an ethereal being from head to toe. Drift away with a divine experience that lingers long after the fizz is done.

If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you’ll know that I’m a Goddess.

God intricately made ‘mii, and bestowed me upon you all.

Anyway, Lush got wind of this and decided to create a custom bath bomb for me. Look, the story they’re telling is they made it for Ariana, but we all know the truth! 😜😂

(Goddess was used in Ariana’s ‘God is a Woman’ video)

So, anyway, Lush, thanks!

As much as I love Ariana’s music, God ain’t a woman, he’s a Man.

This looks a lot like amethyst, my favourite stone.

I’ve started really taking care of my face and hair. It’s taken 27 years, and you know what – I’m proud.

Almond oil, coconut oil, castor oil… All the oils. I’m basically slicker than an oil spill.

These past couple of months, my face and hair genuinely don’t know what’s going on. They think they’ve been treated to the best care in the world. 26 years of existing and then… LIVING for less than one?
