The title of today´s blog is part of a quote, by a comedian i admire a lot, Joanna Lumley, and the full quote goes like this:
I find it a great antidote… lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.
And today i bring you all of them, lipstick is the most important one today probably and part of a blogger challenge started by Cajsa Lilliehook, so for it i picked this pretty skin from essences available at CHIC², CHIC Management second anniversary event, and one of the several lipstick options that come with it. I also bring you a lot of Hairspray in this new Clawtooth, hair made specially for COLLABOR88 .
Also from COLLABOR88 are these gorgeous shoes from Ingenue (available in several colours) and the lovely dress by Schadenfreude ( available in a wide diversity of patterns, and sizes, including kid size).
And last but not least mirrors, the thing about mirrors is, it´s fine when you hold up them to yourself, to admire your look, to look for faults in it, but with what i do have issues, is when people insist on holding up mirrors to others expecting to see their own reflection.
So i would love to see a lot less mirrors about at the end of the day, a mirror only reflects what is there, not your wishes, and reflecting your wishes on others, steals them of their own reflection, making all those holding mirrors look foolish.
And this long rant is basically about feeling good about oneself, wearing what we love, what we choose, and not being held hostage to the mirrors other wave at us.
