Lady Anti Monkey Butt

Yeah … whilst I’m not sure I’m completely onboard with the packaging of Lady Anti Monkey Butt (or even the name for that matter) it’s the time of the year where we talk about chafing, and this year I want to talk about that most taboo of topics: the permanently moist underboob.  Summer, for a fat lass, can be a season of multiple minor irritations, […]

TV Diaries: The launch

We don’t really do binge -watching here in Lippie Mansions, at least, MrL doesn’t. Most of the time, I don’t mind in the slightest, but sometimes you just want one… more… episode… My own fault though, I guess, I married him. That aside, I’m at a bit of a loose end at the moment, having just finished my contract at A. N. Publishing Corp., so […]

Long time, no see …

So yes, I’m embarrassed at not writing, and simultaneously far too embarrassed about it to actually write something to combat the initial embarrassment of not writing. My head, it’s a complicated place, at times. It’s not so much that there has been nothing going on, rather the exact opposite; for example, if I started this update simply by listing only the things that have happened […]

Yorkshire Tea Biscuit Brew: A love letter.

My name is Get Lippie, I am a tea-soaked disaster magnet*, a cack-handed muppet, a recovering parosmic and a Yorkshire Tea Biscuit Brew addict.  Recently, I wrote a love letter about Biscuit Brew, then did the unthinkable.  I sent it to them. Then they made me cry. Again. Let me explain: A couple of months ago, Biscuit Brew became impossible to find in shops.  I […]

Transition

There’s a theory that change actually starts with an ending rather than a beginning …

It stopped being fun …

… and so I was done. Urgh, blogging. So over, isn’t it? Let’s face it, when bloggers started rebranding as Instagram “influencers”, and the quality of the writing started being ignored (by both brands and audiences) in favour of amiable skinny poppets with blandly pretty faces, who recycle press releases instead of having actual opinions, then my place in the “blogosphere” (do not even get […]

Goop “pop up” store opens in London September 25th 2018

And all I have to say to that is: Take your stupid jade eggs, and your fines for medically misleading claims, and do just fuck off, dear. Kisses, Lippie x PS fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff PPS: fuck off.

Alpha H Daily Essentials on QVC (with Giveaway!)

I love Alpha H Skincare, there’s simply no getting away from it.  So, when I relaunched Get Lippie recently (hopefully you might have noticed!) I thought what better way to do so than with a giveaway from one of the brands I discovered through blogging, and who, in my opinion, really get skin?  There was only one brand to speak to.  So I did. Then […]

Aesop Post-Poo Drops

“She thinks her sh*t don’t stink“.  I heard that line of dialogue in a movie once, and for some reason, it has been stuck in my head ever since.  Which, bearing in mind I can no longer remember what the movie was, what I had for breakfast this morning, and occasionally, how old I actually am, is going some.  Now, it turns out, I can’t […]

Get Lippie at the Royal Society of Medicine

I have, somewhat by accident, done a lot of public speaking about my medical condition in the months whilst I’ve not been blogging regularly.  I’ve enjoyed it, too!  Well, some of it  … Having been featured on BBC2’s “Incredible Medicine” (which will be shown in the US as “The Most Extraordinary People in the World” [ha!] at some point) during March, and then unexpectedly turning […]

Whee!!!

Flipping heck! It’s all a bit shiny and new around here at the moment!  Huge thanks to Phil at Pipdig for the blog refresh, and the seamless transfer of the back end.  It all looks so different! I tell you, blogging on a massively outdated platform is a huge bore, and a terrible chore. Because of all the backend changes, I’m not quite “back” in […]

Dove: a conversation about bottle shapes

  Dove: “Each bottle evokes the shapes, sizes, curves and edges that combine to make every woman their very own limited edition,”   Get Lippie: “Oh grow the fuck up. It’s unnecessary, unneeded, unrequired and unasked for. It’s also unwelcome.  Do you really think us fat fuckers people are so absolutely insecure that we need our body lotions to look like us? Or was the thinking more […]
