With Flowers in her Hair

It’s all the rage now. I see big, bright and colourful flowers showing up as hair accessories in Trinidad. It all started with my trip to the Indian Style Expo around Divali time where I got a cute head band with a flower as a side piece for TT$5. What a deal!

Then on entering Pennywise there were a wide array of the big flowers sitting pretty in their showcases. I couldn’t resist getting one, so I got two instead; a big pink rose and white flower with lace petals. At TT$8.95 for one this was also as steal. What I love about them is that they are so versatile. At the back there are 3 items; a pin so you can attach it to your clothes for use as a brooch, a clamp/ clip so you can grab some hair and attach it to your hairstyle and the normal elastic band so you can tie it onto the hair.
Then hopping over to Wonderful World there was also an entire wall dedicated to these delicate hair creatures. Looking at them from this angle gives me a total Caribbean feeling. But it’s not just about flowers, it about feathers too and most of these pieces have both feathers and flowers.
Now this might not be your style. It’s not really mine but it’s good to try something new. These are a few ideas on how they might look on you.
My niece is my beautiful model here! It looks great with her thick long hair but I don’t see why it shouldn’t be equally as great with short hair. Would you wear flowers in your hair?

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
