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 ๐Ÿ™‚

…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 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Also on the Friday, I went to the Benefit Boutique in Covent Garden!! All the ladies there were lovely… good times ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜›

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

FRIDGE MAGNETS ๐Ÿ˜€

Of course, I had to partake in some vintage shopping ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

The pomade I use is Black and White Genuine Pluko.

Bye bye,

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

You see my wonderful new Photoshop skills? ๐Ÿ˜›

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,

After an almost fortnight-long absence, I’m back with a lot of lovely pictures for you all ๐Ÿ™‚

Last weekend I had a birthday tea party with most of my family… and a surprise birthday cake.

It looks just like me.

I also have some new presents from various people;

Flower hairbands and a pink bag from Uncle A, L, D, T, J, and another D;


I like the bag because all of my crap fits in it. With room to spare!!

I also received a necklace from J;

PLUS a half day modeling photoshoot, also from J! How exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

With my birthday money I decided to treat myself to something I’ve had my eye on for a long time… a set of hot rollers. I wasn’t quite sure which the best set was, so I went for the fairly safe option of Babyliss.

There are twenty rollers in the pack; eight large, six medium and six small. There are also twenty metal pins in corresponding sizes and ten plastic clips.

My first set is as follows. Don’t I look attractive? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m not such an expert at setting them yet, but the curls seem to be turning out just fine in the end.

It's actually really difficult to take photographs of the back of your own head.

I then realised that actually, I may well have been trying to wrap too much hair around each roller. So I tried more rollers and less hair in each segment…

You see? I’m gradually improving.

The above photos feature some of my new makeup.

Revlon ColourBurst lipstick in Crimson;

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Ivory (this colour goes so perfectly with my skin tone, it honestly does. You can’t even tell it’s there. I love it.)

And L’Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer.

Now I’m afraid I might not have time to post again for a while. My last exam is tomorrow, but my prom is on Friday and I still have things to sort out for that. Plus a much-loved member of staff at my school passed away very suddenly last week, which was a big shock to everybody… In short, I’m really busy at the moment.

Bye bye,

So today was my birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m now sixteen. I got a set of Body Shop bath products from my parents;

Olive shampoo and conditioner, lemon shower gel and coconut shower gel, mineral deodorant, nail buffer, detangling comb and some scrubber type thing which I’m vaguely afraid of using.

And from my friend C, two sets of hair bows;

And a pair of skull earrings which I love so much… they’re so psychobilly ๐Ÿ™‚

C also gave me two hilarious little books of rude things, which I shall not dwell on because when I’m blogging, I’m a sweet, demure girl, who never puts a foot wrong ๐Ÿ˜‰

Plus today I managed to do the best victory rolls I’ve ever done. However, after a day at school they were somewhat the worse for wear, and so I shall not be posting a picture today.

And my prom dress arrived! If you cast your eyes back to my post a few months ago about my ideal prom dress… I’ve got the exact one ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow I promise you an outfit post of my new clothes my mum bought me.

Bye bye,

After seeing this beautiful picture ofย Casey

… I developed the most intense case of sunglasses envy I have ever experienced. I just had to make it my mission to find a pair of lovely sunglasses, a task which I accomplished when I went to Stratford! There’s the most gorgeous shop there called Aspire which sells all sorts of adorable clothes and accessories and amongst all the treasures I found these…

The glasses themselves were ยฃ9.95 and the case was about ยฃ8 I think. And in my own little tribute to Casey, here is my picture…

And here’s a photograph of my hair in more detail. It’s just a pompadour with a high ponytail, and if I could have been bothered my rosie scarf would have looked nice tied around the ponytail. It’s a little blurry though I’m sorry.

In other news; Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer.

Never have I seen a moustache of such splendour. And his banjolele is something else altogether.

He sounds sort of like a mixture between Eric Birling out of An Inspector Calls and Stewie Griffin… in a good way. A great way ๐Ÿ˜€

I rather recommend Hail the Chap and Chap-Hop History, but really Mr. B is great in all of his songs. If a bit of a bally nincompoop at times ๐Ÿ™‚

Bye bye,

Just a warning – real life has been getting in the way recently. I’ve got a lot of exams to do so I’m not posting as often as I should. Plus my sister has fucked up the computer with some sort of virus. So be warned – I’m not happy :@

Etsy purchases #3 and #4 ๐Ÿ™‚

Creepy Crawl hair clips by Cute and Creepy Inc on Etsy – $4.00

Eye See You ring by Cute and Creepy Inc on Etsy – $2.50

A new frock:

And the Holy Grail: successful pincurls. Perhaps not perfect, but good enough for me. I’ll show some pictures of the set first (as you can see, it’s waaaaay tidier than the other one).

The next photos were taken after an entire day at school…

Also two new make up brushes:

Ms Makeup Work the Angles Angled Eyeliner Brush – ยฃ5.49

Ms Makeup Made in the Shade Eye Shading Brush – ยฃ4.49

Also there was a free gift offer in Boots when if you spent ยฃ6 on 17 cosmetics, you got a free set with a nail polish, eyeshadow and eyeliner in it. So of course, I spent ยฃ6.

You get the Fast Finish nail polish in Knockout Red…

… the Solo eyeshadow in Viva Diva…

… and the Perfect Definition eyeliner in Azure.

And it all comes in a cute little stripy tin ๐Ÿ˜‰

Au revoir, mes amours!

It’s my birthday coming up next month, and I have decided that I really, really want a Dolly Bag. Problem is, I can’t decide which one. Or indeed if I actually want a handbag, or a makeup bag or something… I am kind of inclined towards a coin purse or other accessory though, because they’re pretty expensive. I’ll just have to save my pennies for an actual bag ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’ll be worth it.

Anyway, I have narrowed it down. A bit. It’s a choice between these ones…

Bowling Bag - $85.00

Charlotte Bag -$85.00

Perfect Purse - $50.00

Carry All - $75.00

Cosmetic Bag - $18.00

And the fabrics I like? (You can choose any style of bag and any fabric, and then Dungaree Dolly herself sews it together from scratch and mails it to you :))

Elvis Fan Club

Tweet Tweet

Pink Sailor's Dream Tattoo

Los Novios

Actually I haven’t narrowed it down that much have I? I want them all… but I can only have one ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Tell me what you think it the comments?

Bye bye,
