Floral and silver

Today is a grey day and also the start of my weekend. No one is answering my calls so I thought I'd brighten my mood with floral, pink and silver.

Last night I put a nice, light auburn colour through my hair to give it a bit of oomph! I'd been enjoying my natural colour but it was looking pretty flat. You may notice that I kept my hair in a bun with a latex glove, which was handy to say the least (everyone loves a good pun). The colour doesn't show well on my iPhone pics but it is now very glossy and a bit red/coppery. Lovely!

Also, in an Autumn theme, I went with copper tips on my nails. What's your verdict?

Back in style

Today I caught up with family, drank coffee, ate chocolate and lounged around on my last day of the Easter long weekend. Pete and I went away to Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges for two nights which was incredible, such a stunning place to visit. After three days without make-up and washing my hair, I feel a bit disappointed about how much I enjoyed getting ready this morning - one shouldn't need to wear make-up to feel beautiful, but sadly I do. 

Anyway, this is me trying the fur (faux, of course) vest look, which I love to wear because it is so warm. I think it looks ok, what about you? This vest is Miss Shop, courtesy of my sister, whose wardrobe I stole it from. The top is from Bardot and has an open, diamond patterned back, which I scored from a clothes swap, the jeans I have had since I was 15 and are from Deborah K (anyone else remember that shop?) and the shoes are from Primark in London. 

'Scuse the bra, not the best look, but you get the gist.

Looks to love.

Blog love / Body love

I've recently started following two blogs, Fat Aus and Curve Appeal. I was so happy to stumble across the both of them and see something other than stick-thin bodies. I still don't understand why magazines (where most of the fashion images I see originate) can't use a variety of body types. Yeah, sometimes Cosmo do a "real bodies" special and have models of all sizes but I don't see why that can't be a monthly occurrence. I'd like to see girls who look like me - tiny waist, tiny boobs and a ghetto booty, and girls who are either side of the "model thin" and "plus size" categories. Everybody deserves the right to feel beautiful and show off their style, so I'm very glad   to be a part of an online community where everyone can participate if they want to.

Bottles of pretty

I've always been a big fan of nail polish and love seeing others rock a great colour or interesting finish. I don't wear it myself so much as it chips off my nails far too easily. Today I got a bit excited after picking up a multi-colour glitter polish and decided to try a glitter gradient. 

I'm happy with the way this turned out, and I know glitter is unlikely to chip off my nails after one day!
