Double Trouble

Disney Vans and Dr Martens If you don't know me IRL then you probably don't know that my partner Ro is incredibly stylish. I'm always asking him to jump in my photo's, but usually recieve a glare of disdain, followed by a "no thanks". Ro bought some new shoes today, and finally agreed to me photographing his stylishness :D

These are the shoes he bought. They're high top Disney Vans featuring Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck and Goofy, and happen to go perfectly with a jumper he picked up from H & M in Melbourne earlier in the year (Which according to Ro "is the only good thing H & M have ever sold")

He also wanted to show off the bag I made for his birthday. It's got a bath time kitty print, and is fully padded and sized to fit his laptop and mixer for when he plays gigs.

I also may have taken advantage of this rare opportunity to grab a photo of us being wayyy too cute. (seriously, we're so sweet I want to vomit :P )

Looking Away Otome Kei Hello Kitty Cardigan

This is what I wore today. I picked this dress up from an opshop in Newtown on Monday. I was down to teach some flute, and had a bit of time to kill. I totally didn't mean to end up op shopping, it just kind of happened...

Otome Kei Head Shot Colour Pop Limbo

I paired it with a hello kitty cardigan, because it's a lighter version of the same pink (and also, Australia forgot that summer is supposed to be hot today.) I also decided to wear my holy grail chocolate brown matte lipstick. (It's by colour pop and is called limbo if you're wondering)

One thing I didn't get a photo of is the back of my tights. They have a cute seam/bow detail on them (but look like plain black tights from the front.) I actually don't own a pair of "normal" tights at the moment. (Life is too short for normal tights)

I have a weird relationship with makeup. My mum was never really into it, so wearing it everyday was never encouraged (It was never discouraged either. It was just a thing neither of us really worried about) I never apply foundation. It looks great on others, but I find it sticky and uncomfortable. Same goes for concealer (and primer etc). All of my makeup skillz (or lack there of) come from youtube (Application techniques)/ experimentation (crazy colours).

Saying this, I adore eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick, meaning if I've got bright eyes and bright lips, my skin is pretty bare (Which, according to all of youtube beauty is a pretty weird thing).

swish and flick

Anyway, my search for emerald green lipcolour started about 4 years ago when I realised "unnatural" (ie, anything that's not brown, pink or red) lipstick was a thing. I began searching, and happened across all of the "regular" brands (lime crime, jeffery star etc). Unfortunately for me, anything that was good quality (ie, didn't smell like garbage or feel like crayons) was in the $20 plus price range (and at the time, that was a no go yo) so I dropped the idea.

A few weeks ago I was on a youtube beauty vlog adventure, and found out about colour pop, which had decently priced lipsticks and eyeshadows in all sorts of crazy colours. One of the crazy colours just happened to be the magnificent gem I wore on my face on Tuesday. It's called Bunny, it was $5 usd, wears like a dream (I biked in the 30 degree heat in this lipstick. Barely moved on my lips) and upon googling the colour just now, it's been discontinued :( Dang yo (Despite this, it will last me forever. I don't get to wear lipstick often because it comes off on my flute/makes my embochure awkward and sticky/slippery) . This colour is kind of similar, but you miss out on the big flecks of shimmer which really bring this green to life.

Legit, having deep emerald lips is the most me I've ever felt.

I also tried something new with my hair. My hair is kind of really long (for me) at the moment, as I've not had a spare minute to get a hair cut. Just today I've decided to let my hair (fringe and all) grow out over summer (to provide a blank slate) then I'm going to get it cut super short (with a long flippy side fringe). It's going to be a hair-raising adventure :D (I'll see myself out)
