Sometimes I tear myself away from the programmes I really want to watch – Britain’s and Ireland’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, 90210 (yes, I have terrible taste) – and watch the programmes that my housemate really wants to watch. One of these, of late, was Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, a really brilliant, moving documentary on BBC. Granted, it was a little predictable, but in a nice, Mean Girls, kinda way.

So that’s my Friday night sorted, then. I think I’ma try it out without the head tape, wig and, you know, drawing on my eyebrows. LOVE the eyeshadow though, and that contouring is just epic. If it all works out, who knows, I might just post a picture!
