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?

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you.

Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
