The Mohawk makes the look...



I am quiet and socially awkward, but I still eventually reached the stage where I thought "fuck it" [the trends, peoples reactions etc] and selected to wear whatever caught my eye at the time. I think I was channelling Katy Perry here.

River Island have a great selection of novelty winter hats, depending on location & time of year, and the children's collection its most adults. Naturally autumn/winter is the peak time to be able to pick up a woolly design, but I still see designs in my local store into spring. So keep an eye open for RI's fun designs in their frequent sales.

I think my zebra design was around £7, and it was from the children's department.

Talking 'bout; Dainty Doll Blush in My Girl

A short while ago I came across a three piece Dainty Doll makeup bundle in TK Maxx. The eyeshadow, blush and lipstick were packaged together tightly so I couldn't see the labels, making this a bit of a blind buy.

As luck would have it the lipstick and blush were the same shades I'd been admiring in Boots, so I was delighted with my latest find. Since I've already shown how both the eyeshadow and lipstick apply in real life, I thought I'd share my thoughts on the blush with other people looking for information on Dainty Doll...

Grrr; Teach Me Tiger powder eyehadow by Dainty Doll


A few weeks ago I came across a three piece Dainty Doll makeup bundle in TK Maxx. The eyeshadow, blush and lipstick were packaged together tightly so I couldn't see the labels, making this a bit of a blind buy. As luck would have it the lipstick and blush were the same shades I'd been admiring in Boots, so I was delighted with my 2 out of 3 hit score.

When I opened the eyeshadow compact and swatched it, I was underwhelmed. Shimmery orange? It took a little while for me to  bother picking it up again, but know I have I'm starting to really  like it...
