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.


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 🙂


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.

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,
