Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

“So when’s the book out?” I must hear this com­ment at least once a week. The thing is, if I was to write a book, it wouldn’t be about skin­care or make-up or how to be stylish.

Sure you get all that here in LIFE ev­ery Sun­day!

My book would be about love. My love of poetry. Of course I’d have to call it Poetry-na!

John Mark Green’s poetry is a favourite of mine. One of my favourite po­ems of his is Sui Generis. ‘Some found her odd For she loved po­ems More than di­a­monds And the neck­laces That she pre­ferred Were beau­ti­ful words Skill­fully strung. From her rich heart She made mo­ments Golden with laugh­ter. Some found her odd But I thought her per­fect. A rare gem of a woman.’ Are you in shock? Speak­ing of shock, The Shock, left, €28, Deben­hams, is a fab­u­lous new mas­cara from YSL. It’s a su­per vo­lu­mis­ing mas­cara for dark, in­tense and dra­matic vol­ume. It’s un­be­liev­able. I put it on, and I’m quite lit­er­ally shocked at the thick­ness of my lashes.
