what I stick in (and sometimes on) my eyes

Reasons I like blue mascara:
1) It's blue. (Really, the list could just end here and it'd be complete.)
2) Small children compliment me on it. (At least I know, if I ever do decide to have a child, that we'll have something in common.) 
3) Ot has been worn during the majority of my (sort of) successful flirting experiences. (Obviously, it has magical powers.) (Although it doesn't always work...)
My current weapon of choice is the Diorshow Waterproof mascara!

As you can see, the brush is slightly huge... but I love it. It's just so blue and lengthening! 

(Admire the hat, and the pyjamas. Even when getting ready for bed, I'm stylish.) 

You ninjas who have been with me for a while might be wondering, what happened to the one mentioned in this post? I regret to tell you (try not to cry too much, now) that it is deceased. It developed a rare disease known as "The Clumps" and degenerated quickly. However, I gave it a lovely funeral! (...or maybe just threw it out.) 

My inspiration for today's look:

Audrey Hepburn and I- twins. 

(Haha. In my dreams.) In other news, school started back today- you can see the ever-glamourous polo in this shot. (Yet another reason I am not anything like Audrey Hepburn. I'm certain that, if she was ever forced to wear a uniform, it had decent blouses at the very least.) Has anyone ever heard the saying: "the best days of your life" as regards their teenage years? My only thought on the subject is, if these are the best days, I'm not sure I want to experience the rest! 

(That came out sounding far darker than I'd intended. Please, have no fear for my mental health- unless you think a belief in unicorns is unhealthy- just consider this the desperation of a girl whose morning began with "my cat stole my USB" and went downhill from there.)

Hopefully your Monday wasn't too awful! (I'd wish that it was wonderful, but it was a Monday; I don't think there is such a thing as a wonderful Monday, and if there is, it has the same rarity as a great sale at Sephora or a non-cheesy One Direction song.)


  1. Oh, pleeeeeaaaase cherish those teenage years! Adulthood is not near as glamorous as it seems. Trust. ME. I would love to go back to the days of no responsibilities (besides school).

    I loved when women wore blue mascara when I was young!

  2. Monday's never seem to be any good, do they? I'm glad you made it through! I love that you were inspired by Audrey - I adore her. And that mascara is one of my all time favourites!

  3. I've got to agree with Gentri here - seriously try and enjoy your younger years!!! I turned 24 in December, and I already know that being in school was a time to cherish! I love your blue mascara by the way, I don't think many people could pull it off, but you do! x

  4. Sorry, I think I might disagree, personally... much better not being a teenager.

  5. Blue mascara indeed has amazing colour . But I never tried it so far. It's true that teenager seems so hard (yeah I'm a teenager listen please :P) But afterwards are circumstances would be even hard . So lets move on being happy at least we're not twenty yet.

  6. Z, next *fall* you will leave me to go to uni, and there will be no crazy shopping extravaganzas or 2 day long sleepovers or afternoons writing poetry on your back deck in the summer! We must enjoy these days before we're practically adults and have to work for a living and begin making our way off in the big bad world.

    Also, that mascara is SO BLUE, I think I might have to use a Sephora giftcard on it next time I'm up - it makes the one I have now look chalky XD

    1. true that -nod- have we ever written poetry on my back deck?

      and omg, ikr? expensive, but lovely :D

  7. cute hat! what do the pajamas say on them?

    1. things like 'chocolate' and 'sweetness' etc... you know, my personality XD


Thank you for your comments! They make my day brighter, and I promise to answer every single one :)
