When I was a little girl, it was all about Barbie.
When I was a teenager, it was all about Barbie.
And now it seems it’s all about Barbie once again.
Browsing on the net this afternoon, I came across some amazing images of what looked like a brand new Barbie cosmetic range. Cue Mac, cue Stila, wait no it’s New Look. Part of the Christmas gift collection and to celebrate 50 years of Barbie, it seems New Look have collaborated.
I’m literally itching to go and see this range. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always been fond of Barbie. I guess for me it’s the whole ‘girly pink’ idea of it all, it’s so stereotypically girly (no boys allowed!)
It’s funny back home all my Barbie’s and occasional Sindy are still in our loft…sigh. I’ve always thought of them as something I don’t want to part with, there a huge part of my childhood after all.
Onto being Barbie mad a few years back, I don’t quite know where this stemmed from. I remember getting a lot of stick for it too, my friends would often be ‘how old are you?’
It wasn’t so much about the dolls, it was about the brand. I had bags, pencil cases, sweatbands, allsorts. I know it sounds really daft but I was simply fascinated.
I think as MAC proved Barbie is simply timeless♥
