Just a quick and you could say rather silly post, but I have a DYMO machine! Finally.
For those who are unfamiliar with the term, basically it’s a labelling machine, old school style.

From the moment Bart Simpson had one many many years ago, I made a mental note that I always wanted one. Bizarre maybe, but what can I say, I like decorating things.
Turns out, this one, my boyfriend found in a cupboard at work, no longer used, so he brought it home for me.

I don’t know what I like more, the DYMO itself or that fact my boyfriend saw it and thought of me. Ha he knows me well.


Style Icon: Madison

Madison!!! (Splash 1984)

I always get super excited, when I get inspired from something so old and maybe forgotten about.

This character is so enchanting and quirky, bearing in mind she is a mermaid; I think her presence is actually magical. I love love love her long blonde hair, perfect mermaid hair as it would be. The stone necklace is so distinctive and also compliments her perfect.

I like how when she turns up at the Statue of Liberty stalkers, they put her in an I<3NY tee, be it to cover her modesty. Reminds me of a couple of years ago when all the trendy kids were wearing them, shows that some tees are timeless.

I also love it when she first discovers Bloomingdales, and she goes in Allen’s (Tom Hanks) man suit, miles too big for her. She’s so careless about fashion, but even somehow manages to pull it off.

The turquoise outfit too also looks amazing matched with her crimped flowing locks. Turquoise and blondes go so well together.
At the end of the day, I know it’s only a film but right now I couldn’t be more in love with her beauty.

Welcome Back

Having had an absence from my blog, I’ve decided it’s something I want to re-discover/re-create.
I want to thank all of my followers, for sticking with me, even though I haven’t posted anything new for a good 2months.

I felt what I was writing wasn’t really exciting and it wasn’t something I was enjoying as much as I used to. I love reading other peoples blogs, and have made a conscience effort to check back and read the people who I follows blogs.

I like the idea of a blog, if solely the only person who reads it is me, in some year’s time. It’s something I will always have, that I can look back on and remember this time in my life.

I’m changing a few things round on here, but I’m still going to leave my old posts up, just draw a line under them. A lot of my later posts, were becoming more and more make-up related, which I think is something I like to talk about but don’t necessarily talk about well, I never demonstrate with pictures etc.

I really want to be imaginative, and write interesting posts, that aren’t generically one subject. I think I’m going to be more open about what I write about and a little less formatted. I naturally love writing and sometimes I shut off from it, but it seems it always has a way of coming back to me. ♥
