mailed delights


After spending an entire week resting on a bed surrounded by Kleenex tissues and tea cups filled with lemon and honey brewing's, it really boosted my moral to receive two delightful packages in the mail. I love the new Napoleon Perdis goodies (courtesy of What Should I Wear? and Michelle’s Style File). The mascara is ah-mazing, defining my stubborn lashes like never before (I sound like a commercial!)  and I love the natural coloured lip gloss, it's super shiny and smells fabulous! The September issue of Teen Vogue was't mind-blowing, but it was still an exciting read. There were some very clever editorials with bright colours and extreme make-up.

Anyway, I need style advice from you, fellow bloggers! I am going to a fancy dress party with a tricky theme -- 21st century! Any ideas? Please comment below and help me, I'm totally stuck! Happy Friday!

Don't forget to enter this fabulous giveaway hosted by 'Something Pretty', who can resist Topshop goodies and Body Shop delights?

Hey Maria! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! Anyway, to answer your question, no, my pictures are not professional. I take them all with my Canon PowerShot A590 IS. It is a nicer camera, but it's not a DSLR. And then I just edit and tweak them to my liking. :)

Ooo...so does 21st Century as a theme mean modern or what? You could go for a really, really, really modern, geometrical look. Like almost futuristic.

I hope you feel better soon! Hhhmm, 21st century theme? I would agree with Maria Elyse, something geometric and futuristic.
