A-Z October Round-Up!

Art work of the month…
My friend Sylvanna / Miss Scarlet In The Ballroom never fails to impress me with her creations. I just love seeing her new works of art pop up on my newsfeed!

Before and after of the month…
I had some real beautiful before/afters to choose from this month but my top one has to be of lovely Lily from early in October! I took her platinum blonde and thanks to Olaplex, there was very little damage to her hair!

Couldn’t live without…
MAC Matchmaster Liquid Foundation. You don’t realise how much you love something and how perfect it is for your skin until you run out and have to substitute with something else until you can get more!

Dancing to…
or rather, swaying from side to side, to my friend Tami Neilson’s latest single ‘Lonely’.

Excited about…
November is going to be a jam-packed month so there’s lots to be excited about! First up, is the inaugural Atomic Markets in Hamilton which are always lots of fun and it’s where I won my first pinup competition in 2013!

Find of the month…
I came across a website that I hadn’t heard of before- Royal Vintage Shoes. It stocks vintage style shoes from a variety of brands with a focus on 20s-40s styles. With a increasing amount of Navy making it’s way into my wardrobe, I ordered these beauties.

Grateful for…
Grandparents, I always have loved them! I took my Grandad to see the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

Hair tip of the month…
I watched Vintage Vandalizm’s new tutorial and learnt a interesting tip! To achieve the smooth vintage waves look with a curling iron, make sure you are twisting the hair as you twirl it around the iron. I’ll be trying it for myself…

Lesson of the month…
Time out is important, especially time out from the internet! It was lovely to go away on our boat last weekend and have limited web access.

Makeup product of the month…
Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol eye BB cream! I did a ‘Meet and Greet’ at the Benefit counter for the launch and I’ve been loving using it and giving my eyelids extra protection!

Outfit of the Month…
I knew this would take the winning spot as soon as I put it on. It’s a shame that the weather in Auckland is going to be too warm for cardigans very soon!

Reality check…
It’s getting hard to ignore the barbaric practices of the meat industry and after watching this video, I’ve been re-assessing my meat eating ways.

  1. So true about the meat industry; I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years now and it really is amazing. I don’t miss out on anything. I’d check out Cowspiracy or Food Inc. for some great info, both are on Netflix.

  2. Hi Miss Victory Violet 🙂 I’m with you on the Collectif shoppig fever 😉 They are probably gonna turn me broke even before Christmas will be here 😀 Well… Girl can’t help it 😉
