… my first ever video! I decided to make it about skincare (that’s the only beauty regime in my life that I completely live by :P) and I’m actually a bit worried. My voice sounds horrible on it, and I say “yeah” too much. But never mind, here we go.


Product info;

Cleansing wipes – two for 97p (hah, I’m so cheap :P)

Garnier Soft Essentials cleansing milk (I got the rose-scented one though)

Sephora toner… well I could have sworn that it said Sephora, but it doesn’t appear to be on the site. Yay counterfeit goods! 😛

Bio Oil (Brace yourself, this one’s expensive)

Garnier Pure face scrub (The PURE one, but for some reason Boots only lists Pure Active)

M&S Buttermilk hand cream and Body Shop white cotton gloves

Chapstick (If you’re only gonna be sticking your eyebrows down with it anyway, the flavour won’t matter :P)

Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel spot wand (Don’t bother, it’s shit)

Aqueous cream

Bye bye,

After a fair while not posting (real life caught up with me), I think I shall write a massive post to make up for my neglect. I have nice new things to write about, too, so hopefully this will be interesting. Or at least, not entirely dull 🙂

Onto the Etsy purchases first. I think I mentioned in the last post that I’d made a few orders, but due to the volcano which is causing so much havoc in Europe’s aerospace, some of it hasn’t arrived yet. However, I have receieved a hair flower that my mother ordered for me from Sophine Giam (all the way from Singapore, but it still arrived before any of my other orders :P) and a rosie necktie/ headscarf from Shoot ‘Em Up.

Isn’t it pretty? It’s not such a big flower that it dwarfs my head, though, which is good. I haven’t actually got a picture of myself wearing it close up, but it looks really nice on 🙂 Also when it arrived it was all wrapped up really nicely and had a little piece of paper about Pay It Forward included. Pay It Forward is when you agree to do good things for other people (which is why the PIF purchases are less expensive). So I’m trying to do random acts of kindness every day 🙂

This is my new spotty rosie headscarf, and I LOVE IT LOTS!! However, the Etsy seller was away for a while so I didn’t receive my order for about two weeks… but as a thank you for waiting she included a couple of extra hairpins 🙂 They are very, very awesome. I don’t actually know whether I want to wear the rosie or the hairpins for school tomorrow…

Bad camera phone quality I'm afraid.

So all in all, I’m very pleased with everything I’ve bought off Etsy so far… just waiting for airmail to resume normal service now.

I also have two brand new dresses, and I’ve conquered my fear of tights! About bloody time…

This blue flowery-type dress is from Tesco… but it’s a bit on the short side. The very short side. Whenever I wear it I end up having to pull it down 🙂

And there’s this floral one from Dorothy Perkins which you can’t see so well because of my cardigan, I’m sorry. I’ll try and find a better picture.

I prefer that one to the blue dress 🙂

Bye bye,

My new favourite style and genre of music. It’s really just rockabilly except scarier. For example, why wear a plain hair bow when you can put a spider on it?

Psychobilly clothing has a lot of “horror” elements to it, and it does work well, actually. Usually the clothing is in blacks or reds while rockabillies wear blues, reds, whites and so on.

Another difference between psychobilly and rockabilly is the hair; the styles are the same but psychobillies often dye their hair very bright, unnatural colours. This isn’t really neceassary, but a lot of psychobillies to it to distinguish themselves from the rockabilly culture. The styles are almost always the same, though.

Psychobilly music also is really just rockabilly but creepier.

Rockabilly = songs about cars and girls.

Psychobilly = songs about horror, violence, and wild sex in a hearse. No joke.

Nekromantix, Horrorpops, Reverend Horton Heat etc.

So yes, as you have probably gathered, I like psychobilly. A lot.

Bye bye,

So yesterday, Good Friday, I went off into Blackpool with the mother and actually bought clothes! This is a rare occurrence, believe me. And I actually got some pretty good stuff. None of it’s vintage, mainly due to the fact that it’s Blackpool and we have no vintage stores whatsoever, but it’s all vintage inspired. Plus, when I go to London in July I plan to buy lots and lots of genuine vintage. Haul is as follows;

– Stripy bow-necked top with bow on the collar and navy cropped cardigan from New Look…

(I struggled to take photos of these while I was wearing them, so here are the images off the New Look website.)

– A gorgeous pair of shoes from Peacocks that I’ve had my eye on for a while…

– Sleek liquid eyeliner in a pretty container from Superdrug…

– A trio of toffee-coloured eyeshadows from Boots…

– And a bright red lipstick from Boots Collection 2000.

I tried out the eyeliner and lipstick when I got home; this is what they look like.


So that’s all for today. I made a fairly big Etsy order a few days ago, so when it arrives I’ll be posting images and whatnot about that.

Bye bye,
