Look familiar? Expect more variations of this outfit yet :) This butter yellow blouse is brilliant for mixing with other soft colours.
Yes, I am still wearing my faux fur collared jacket. I expect it'll spend August in the wardrobe but right now 18C/64F is as high as the thermometer goes so it is perfect for the morning chill :)
When I first heard about the H&M/Swedish Hasbeens collaboration I marked it in my calendar knowing full well the closest store stocking them would be a thirty quid train journey away. By the time I realized they were also available online this style had already sold out in my size. After some soul searching I decided "Yes, I am that infatuated" and bought them from H&M Austria instead, asking my parents to forward the parcel to me. A bit elaborate, but cheaper than the train fair. To top it all off my parents gave them to me :D Thanks Mama & Papa!
I made these earrings from buttons way back in 2009 (tut) but this is the first time I've worn them. I am pleased with their debut though, little spots of sky blue to go with my belt and tights.
Man, I haven't been getting my eyebrow right recently. The outer thirds are mostly paint and I hate how visible that is close up. (Scarce but existent. Losing the outer thirds of your eyebrows can indicate thyroid issues, mine is a-okay though. You can't say I don't tell you personal stuff. Now I am even sharing my blood work! ;)).
I am all for self acceptance but that doesn't preclude casting a critical eye on my own appearance. It does however mean I also make a conscious effort to acknowledge positive aspects of the old flesh and bones. I am on good terms with my limbs for instance. I like those guys. All four of them.
Alright, I know my eyebrows aren't all that bad really, it's just they're one one of my features I am n-i-g-g-l-y about. I seem to have gotten a hair rant theme going recently :D Haters gonna hate.. hair?
Which bits of your body have your most heartfelt seal of approval?
I've been wondering about doing 'proper' videos but I quite enjoy the stop motion feel of animated gifs too. Are you with me on that one or would you prefer some smoother YouTube embedded cycling on my part (heaven forbid I do an animated gif without Dusty the bike ;))?
