Well, C told me about this competition that Specsavers are running to find people who “look great in glasses”. Cue me!! Haha, maybe not “great”, but if it was a quest to find people who look “pretty damn good” in glasses, I’d win, no doubt about it ;D

Both C and I are going to go for it, and mere moments ago I sent in my application…

In the above, I’ve done my hair with my hot rollers and a lot of the make up is my new Benefit from London.

Quick post, I know, but I’m conscious that I haven’t really blogged in a while 🙂

Bye bye,

I have reached the day when I have too much crap to fit in both the drawer of my dressing table AND in my Marilyn Monroe vanity case. The above is just a selection of all the hair and beauty related wonders that I own.

So when I was shopping in Blackpool with C, I saw these three lovely boxes on sale at WHSmith… and them being pretty AND discounted, AND me being in dire need of storage, I had to get them 🙂

As I’m sure you can imagine, maneuvering The Boxes through the town centre, onto the bus, along the bus and off the bus was quite a sight to behold 🙂

So now I use the largest box for skincare, the medium sized box for hair products and the smallest box for rollers. I’m pretty certain that hairbrushes and the like will still be able to fit in the dresser drawer…

Skincare

Hair Products

Rollers

I also came up with an ingenious little solution for bobby pins and loose hot roller pins… you know how they always get lost or just hide somewhere? Well no more, I say!!

Sure, they’re in a maxipad tin and a tampon tin, but who really cares? 🙂

I recently spent a long weekend in London with my parents, sort of as a late birthday present!! We stayed in the K+K Hotel George:

… and on our first night in London we went to the Ivy 🙂

…and then went down by the Thames, where we met these odd individuals.

If anybody’s wondering, yes that is my prom dress and shoes. However I didn’t use the underskirt and I put the little white cardigan over the top in case I got cold. Alas, I left the cardigan somewhere on the Friday and it’s surely gone forever now 😦

Also on the Friday, I went to the Benefit Boutique in Covent Garden!! All the ladies there were lovely… good times 🙂

I had my eyebrows waxed, plucked and generally beaten into shape, and a makeover.

Tah-DAH!!

I ended up buying all of these products:

Big Beautiful Eyes Palette

BADgal plum mascara

High Beam

And now I know how exactly to use all of these things… which is, you know, a good thing. If it was left up to me I’m sure I’d be terrible at it, hahah 😛

I received a little gift bag too, which included these goodies:

Creaseless Cream Shadow/ Liner in Flying Down To

That Gal primer - I got a little tester size of this 🙂

FRIDGE MAGNETS 😀

Of course, I had to partake in some vintage shopping 😉 I went to Rokit in Covent Garden and picked up a silk scarf and a cute keyring/ measuring tape.

And to round it all off, I have some pictures of a faux bang style with pigtails for you all 🙂

The pomade I use is Black and White Genuine Pluko.

So last night was the last time I may see quite a lot of the people I’ve spent five years with. It was a good night 🙂

After much deliberation, I went for all-round 1950s.

You see my wonderful new Photoshop skills? 😛

And here’s just a few photos of my friends, because I must say they all looked very splendid.

L-R: S, B, and me

L-R: M and me

L-R: Me and C

L-R: S, C and M

L-R: C and R

L-R: Me, C, B and N

I think you’ll agree that everybody looked splendid… and I shall just give a mention to S and his emergency suit! The suit that was only a very tiny bit shiny!

Bye bye,
