Lookbook / Chictopia
(top was my mums in the 80s)
I've wanted to have a go at doing victory rolls for ages now, but i always thought they would be quite complicated to do. But after watching a youtube video, it showed it was actually quite easy and so i had a go! I really like it, what do you think?

Had a really productive week at uni, i'm absolutely knacked now but totally worth it in the long run. My new printer arrived today so so that means i can actually get cracking with my sketchbooks. Im really buzzing about my projects, and i feel that my final year will be a good one. Don't hold me to that though! I'll be crying with stress in a few months! I'll do a post this week about what im up to.

My first look magazine subscription arrived today, i had a yearly one last year but i wasn't going to renew it. Until i saw it was offering free Barry M goodies! How could i say no? I got an email saying that it would arrive in a few weeks. I can't wait! I love getting stuff in the post, in my opinion, people don't send enough post nowadays!

Im currently watching the Chili miners being rescued on the BBC news! It's so incredible. Can't even begin to imagine how awful being trapped would of been.
It doesn't happen often, but it's always so good hearing some good news going on in the world.

I was very glad to hear Rachel, Jenny, Ayden, Michelle, Lucy & Zoe received their bracelets yesterday!
You should all go and visit them, they're all very lovely!

Im going to be making some more shortly, so if you're interested just drop me an email!

  32. Fabulous hair! Which youtube tutorial did you use? There's a channel called ilovegerardo that has loads of different 'vintage' style hair tutorials - the girl who does them is amazing. I've tried victory rolls a couple of times, but I do think they're quite tricky!
    Love your makeup too! xxx
