Topshop blouse via charity shop, ancient H&M jumper, H&M skirt, M&S tights and shoes, Amelie Blaise ring, DIY headband
Firstly I apologise for my slightly weird stance in the first photo. Don't know what was up with me there. Despite having Kathy and her amazing DSLR to take pictures with, I still cannot pose properly. Oh dear.
I bought this Topshop blouse because it reminded me so much of Luella's Spring 2009 collection, but it just doesn't look good on me. It makes my boobs look all weird and mushy! So I layered it under a v-neck jumper hoping this would improve the situation. I don't think it does really. I still look lumpy! Perhaps this blouse shall have to find it's way to a more deserving suitor.
I've been experimenting with tying bits of fabric in my hair recently, partly inspired by this tutorial. I may try and do the top curls thing at some point but I think my layers are just too short. I'm still trying to learn how to style my hair properly; at the minute all I can seem to do are my 15 year old defaults of messy buns or ponytails!
Also, since I am currently not buying any clothes, I've been playing around with make up a bit more. The lipstick is a Rimmel one (Colour Show Off in 220 Shocking Pink) and is really good. The colour isn't quite right in the photos of me,even with some editing, but in the single one of the lipstick I think the colour is pretty close.
I've also included a photo of this new foundation I've been using. Up until this point, I had been using N07 Intelligent Colour foundation, which was quite sheer. I don't really need a lot of foundation since my skin is pretty good, but I have got these really red cheeks that I don't like. I think they just look too overpowering if I'm wearing lipstick and tend to perpetuate this whole 'I look like a 15 year old' dilemma. I bought this foundation in the hope that it might give me better coverage and it does, without making it look like I'm caked in foundation, which was a look I wanted to avoid at all costs. I'm really pleased with it and how it evens out my skin tone. I'm almost Dita Von Teese porcelain! (OK, so the freckles might be a slight obstacle)
That's enough blabbering for now. I should be revising, what with exams being 2 days away. That's probably why this post sounds so rushed. Just thought I'd slip in this post before they start. Probably won't post again until Thursday. Hope you all have good weeks.
