MAC Blush Of Youth beauty powder vrs Benefit Dandelion

Dupe Alert!
Last week as I was admiring the prettiness of the Rose Romance beauty powder I had just brought it struck me how familiar the colour looked to something I already have.
Benefit Dandelion.
My sister brought me this product years ago and although I used it a lot for the first year it has been pushed to the side over time

Here is what Benefit say about it.
"Start your day the "perk-me-up" way, and keep them guessing how you look so pretty this early in the morning. Dust on our soft, pink, perk-me-up powder for instant radiance and a youthful appearance. It's the perfect shade of pink that brightens everyone's complexion without looking powdery or chalky."

Side by side...Mac on left benefit on right
Hardly any difference at all.
The only differences I could spot were Dandelion is far more pigmented and Blush Of Youth ever so slightly less peachy and more pink.

So, Blush Of Youth now sits prettily on my dressing table and Dandelion sits prettily on my cheeks!
I'm quite happy about this as every time I ran my 109 over the beautiful embossed rose I winced.

50's Pin up comp entry!

Just saw this comp by Sabrina at just a little obsessed and have been franticly applying make up for the past 20 mins.
I actually wore my make up like this last weekend so I thought I would copy what I did then.
I kept ALL colours matte as was the style back then!
Inspiration was Bettie Page.
Apologies for my hair! It would have looked much better if I had not left only three minutes to do it *Facepalm* :S

To dye or not to dye..

Recently I have been getting a bit miffed off with my hair.
I've basically had the same cut and colour since I was 15/16 and I think it might be time for a change.
Well ..not THAT much of a change actually.. *looks sheepish*
Anyway, This is my hair as it is at the moment.
Black, straight block fringe and long thanks to my lovely extensions (which i have also been getting done since I was 16..yikes!).
Please excuse the picture, I look awful but you get the general hairness.My gorgeous mate conk on the right :)

This is Lily allens hair in the Not Fair video
I'm thinking of going this colour and maybe getting my fringe taken out a bit like hers in the above photo.
I got my fringe done a bit like this last april, but not quite as thickly.
what do you think? Go for the fringe but stay black or go for colour as well?
Or no fringe but colour!
Opinions would be much appreciated!

Topshop haul

Little Topshop haulage gwan down!

I LOVE this vest. So pretty.
I think I'll wear it with a high waisted black tulip skirt, opaque black tights and a leather jacket.

I have wanted this Lauren Moshi vest for EVER but have not got round to buying it yet.
Lauren Moshi is amazing. I love her prints.

So for now I shall make do with these two...
Really bad pic, It's actually navy and the zebra head is made up of little gold stud type things.

Oversized zebra tee

Really not sure how to wear this one.. It's not long enough (or I'm not brave enough more like!!)
to be a dress so I'm not sure.

I also got some MORE aviators (I have a serious addiction to these things)
in a purpley brown colour.

What do you think of my blogs makeover?
Is naaiiccee?


Bonjour mes amis!

I'm so sorry I have not been blogging for so long *slaps wrist* but I have been living in a house that is doing a very convincing impression of a squat and have only just found my camera charger.
And as for my laptop charger, it decided moving home was a little too stressful and with a parting cry of "Goodbye cruel world!" it died.
But I now have a shiny new charger and a pair of sofas. Things are looking up!

We are trying to get the whole house sorted by our deadline of june 1st as I'm hoping to get another chi pup before it starts getting cold.
I now have all my make up sorted out!.. but nearly all my clothes are still in boxes.
I've got my priorities straight as you can see.

Anyway I just wanted to give you all a quick update.
Hello and thank you to my new followers! <3
Hang in there I WILL be posting regularly again very soon.

Heaps of lurrvee.
