Victoria Jackson- Yes I Know Who She Is

I don’t usually rant, not in this sort of manner, but something really annoyed me today. I was in my local Whsmiths and this has happened on numerous occasions in the past 6months. Infact every time I visit this particular store.

Two Sales assistants right in the walkway selling Victoria Jackson make-up. I literally cannot walk past without being bombarded with questions. I gather they are trying to sell Victoria Jackson makeup products, but instead of letting the customer browse, they ask every young girl entering the store, if you are into makeup and have you ever heard of Victoria Jackson?

Well in fact I have and I already own a couple of her products. Seriously this is really annoying me now. I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else, but I hate being sweet talked into buying something. I went in to buy a magazine not a £30 beauty kit!

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♥

Katy Perry- Style Evolution

I might not approve of her boyfriend, but one things for sure this girl has certainly caught my eye again.

Its funny my first proper blog post was concerning Miss Perry’s style presence at the 2008’s MTV Europe Music Awards. She’s also cropped up from time to time in other posts along the way.

The press attention may be all over her and Mr Brand, but I feel there is a need for me to compliment her budding fashion status. I have to admit she started off dressing wacky and extreme, attention seeking maybe? Well let’s face it, it worked.

Then somewhere along the lines a certain Lady, goes by the name ‘GaGa’ began to overshadow Perry. To be honest I think this has done her to world of good. Katy’s been able to grow and evolve. 2009s EMA’s saw her looking grown up and elegant. Her make-up and hair is so beautiful, I simply love it.

My favourite of the night be a bit of a contradiction but a ball gown with missing chunks. Truth be told a little bit of quirkiness doesn’t harm anyone.
