Favourite Fashion Quote!

Mr Alexander McQueen

My favourite Couture Fashion Designer

His quote: 

I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.

Very brave of someone to say that belongs in the fashion industry where looks, can mean everything. 

Some of his original work.

Autumn/Winter 2008

G'Day Bloggers 

Have you noticed, my new page!

I shall be embarking upon design your Headers and Buttons.

Like I have done above!

  Enough of that

In October 2012 I cut my hair, before an Interview for RiverIsland 
that I never went to.

From that moment on I decided I was to grow my hair properly this time, after many debates with myself whether to bother growing it or not.

October 2012 my hair looked like this!

It was the typical long fringe and the rest was approx 1-2 inches long.

Very short, however it suited the situation I was in; with a young child not having a lot of time to focus on anything but him.

But for months I had been telling myself, just to grow it long again but I was so worried about, how much 'out of style' it would go.

But I eventually went for it.

Previously when I grew my hair, every couple of months I would get it trimmed and it took forever to have the prime length.

How ever this time I researched it, and came across a Hairdresser website that basically said, if you want to grow it, then just go for it!
No Trimming 
No Cutting!

So I did.

This is 8 months later.

So Saturday morning

Daniel proclaimed, 'Heather do you think you might want to go to the Hairdressers today??'

Heather replied 'Thanks Dan, your saying I look like a scruff'

For the record, Daniel is a wonderful man and although I moan and groan, he makes me extremely happy!

We were heading into Basingstoke for our date night anyway, so I got my hair cut.
In the style of this:

Am I completely out of the 'celebrity loop' but who is this??

So I got it chopped, so it appears much nicer than it was before!

I can see again!!

It's sound quite patronizing and I'm so for that,

but all I needed was someone to tell me to just let it grow and it will appear so much better in the end!

Just keep a lot of Bobby Pins close by for those unexpected and unwanted flyaways!

A Memorable Throwback Thursday...

Today's Throwback Thursday is a little sentimental

this is a picture of Me and my cousin Emily.

On my 19th birthday,

at the local Chinese Restaurant, 
with my two friends, Lara and James who I haven't seen in a long time.

This picture means a lot to me

when I was growing up, I never saw my Cousins and barely got to know them, as much as I would've liked.

Whereas now I know them a lot better and I've seen them more this year than possibly ever before!

Emily is now following her dream to travel
zoom zoom

and she is living in Australia, so now I miss her again :(

but she is having fun and I'm very happy for her.

I also miss my red hair!

My Beauty Would You Rather...

I may as well, everyone else is doing it.

1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

I would rather lose all my Palettes, simply because Eyeliner is by far my favourite makeup product. You can also cheat and use an Eyeliner as an eyeshadow! Plus I think Mascara can you make a look work and give you the polished/finished look!

Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I would chop it off and donate to charity. I've only recently started growing my hair out again, so it wouldn't be too much for me to deal with! 
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I prefer a pink cheek, although my preferences, change day to day. I think a pink looks slightly more natural, which I prefer.

4.) If you had £1000 to spend on anything, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Although I love makeup, I think I would rather spend it on clothes. Makeup can last you quite a while, whereas fashion is constantly changing and I certainly have a few outdated and outworn clothes.

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

I personally think this is disguisting. But I would have to say, Eyeliner as Lippy, only if the eyeliner had not been previously used on eyes! 

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

MAC easily, as we don't have Sephora in the UK. I don't know what it's like.

7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life? 

Eyeshadow, easily! Say a pinky eyeshadow, if you add a little Vaseline and you've got yourself a lip colour! 

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter? 

I would love to wear summer clothes all year. But living in the freeze that is UK I must answer the opposite, wearing Winter Clothes in the summer! How ridiculous!

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?  

Bright please! Dark nails can look very classy but a bright colour is fun :)!

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

I would give up a lip product, I love my eye products too much! Haha, I sound crazy!

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun? 

In a messy bun, I love all the back combing and crazyness of it. I find a ponytail a little boring, especially if it's a special occasion.

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss? 

Never you lipgloss, I have never found a lipgloss that isn't all gooey and sticks to your hair. Plus you've gotta love a painted nail!

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

I think I would shave them, as then you can pencil them in. I mean a sharpie!! What the hell is this question!

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Sorry nail polish but goodbye. I can live without you. Only for a while though!
