I had a lovely trip to the trafford center in manchester this afternoon with my cousin Becky & despite my intention to not spend anything i obviously did! However my achievement for the day was that i entered selfridges, looked at the mac counter & purchased nothing!! mainly because i think i own everything now! i shall do a collective haul of my mac stuff a couple of cream colour bases arrived this morning & its love for me! but this is what i got today minus a massive bottle of sweet chilli sauce from selfridges! (get it, its amazing on everything!)
Topshop headband - £7
Sex Shoes from matalan - £16!!! <3 them!
Scalf thingi matalan - £3
Another headband matalan - £3.50
Bracelets matalan - £4
More bracelets matalan - £5
even more bracelets topshop - £9
i also bought a dress but my ginormous boobies are a little squished in them but it fits the rest of me grrr!! so need to return it!
i saw so many topshop head bands really hippyish for my fancy dress but i looked at them & thought i could make the exact same ones with some supplies for a tenth of the price & really unique, so i'm gonna give it a go & put the results & a how to up if you fancy it! let me know!!
anyways a little point of annoyance, i know most of u will have seen on twitter the comments & banter about the little girl on YT doing makeup tutorials & stuff & i really cant get over it! i was thinking about venturing into YT when i eventually work out how to but to think i might be contributing to little girls (shes no way 13, my cousin is 9 & is older than her for sure) wearing that much makeup & feeling the need to wear it doesnt sit well with me! in no way am i blaming gurus they do an amazing thing helping people & teaching & entertaining but correct me if i'm wrong but we used to use our mums hand me downs at 8 & in no way took it so seriously as kids do these days & to see an 8 year old with shadow insurance & mac makeup is frightning to me! i didnt become so self aware as she is until my teens & i know i sound old but when did it stop being ok to be just a kid! i'm not criticising her at all, shes got the confidence to do it which is great i'm criticising the parents for allowing their child to expose herself to the harsh criticism of the internet! i would never leave a horrible comment on a childs video (if i were to i'd advise her to stick to an accent & fill in the eyebrows but am resisting) There are gurus who are adults & still find it hard to ignore horrible comments so for a child it could be really damaging! & i find it so sad that kids are like that these days & i certainly dont want to bring a child into a world where shes expected to be like that, to look perfect! i didnt give a frig what i looked like & if my hair was straight enough i just enjoyed being myself yes i liked to look nice & girly but never covered my face in makeup to do that, the rising cases of anorexia in childeren really scares me, my cousin is 9 & asked me if she was fat a couple of months ago & it broke my heart! i am in no way skinny or have ever been but i've always had confidence i enhance myself with makeup i dont cover myself so i'm someone else! & i'd love your opinions on this subject because i'm really passionate about positive body image! i've had my mum hurl every insult at me calling me fat etc & i've always ignored them & thought differently & had confidence so to see girls thinking they need all the diets & makeup is awful they're beautiful exactly the way they are!
Sorry about that ramble! but let me know if you're as disgusted as me about it!
Hope you've all had a lovely day!
