I’m back! I wasn’t really gone, but I feel like lately I have been figuring out my life! Anyway I’ve got some cool news. You may or may not have noticed that there is a new tab in the navigation bar called ‘Beauty Shop’ if you haven’t noticed it click here. It is basically a little section on the website where I have curated beauty products that I think are amazing! Great colors and as my friends know products that I have spent countless hours using and researching. Some are expensive and some are dirt cheap but I think that they all work I have also written the reason why below each one. I will try to add more products that I try but I just thought I would share that with you. It’s a bit of an experiment with the help of Amazon but I’m excited to see if anything happens with it. Feel free to browse and ask questions!
I read about this Oldie Gilbert hair pin a while ago in the Gentlewoman magazine. It’s just a simple little hair pin but the shape of it is so cool that I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. I know it sounds ridicoulous that a little pin (about 6.5 in) would take up so much space in my brain but it’s these little objects of vanity that remind me of something that might have sat on a perfume tray in the early 20th century. Also it could be because I am a hoarder and I love to have stuff that I feel like I need these things in my life. Anyway this little pin will cost a pretty penny, $87 give or take but check out the link tutorial below, and tell me it doesn’t inspire you to do something nice to your hair (see image below)?

Lucky for you I love researching these things so I found us a couple of options, this etsy shop makes nice shiny brass hair forks like the one above for $8.50 except they are not curved which is not good if you have fine hair. Alternatively on Etsy they have a large assortment of curved hair forks here. Have you tried something like this? What do you think?
How to Use a Hairpin
The other day I went to the ‘world famous camden markets‘ (lol) and I saw this stall by Monika Viktoria, an artist originally from Australia. I literally wanted to buy everything from her stall because she had postcards, prints and notebooks with her, work as well as, some original works and they were all very reasonably priced. I love her work because its pretty and whimsical and reminds me of art nouveau from the early 20th century. What do you girls think? Visit her etsy shop and tell me! The best part is you can get a piece of her work for as little as $6! BTW one of these pieces will be mine soonISH!
Hi Girls, I hope your week has been going well. Woohoo for thursday!
About two months ago I was at the Other Art Fair here in London and the girl at the pop-up coffee shop there had a line of glitter painted slightly above her eyebrows. Although different, I thought it looked quite good. She told me that she and her friends went to loads of festivals this summer and had worn loads of glitter so she decided to keep it going by subtly adding it to her face, hence the eyebrow decoration. Anyway I tried two looks with this eye glitter that I found this MUA one for about $1.60
I literally just swept it on over my eyebrow and that was it.
I know its a bit weird but I think it adds a unique sparkle! What do you think?
This second look, if you read yesterdays post is inspired by stick on glitter eyeliner and is super simple.
1) Line your upper lash line with black liner.
2) Go over your eyeliner with a line of glitter. And you’re done!
