It seems ages since I last posted with something interesting. My parents have arrived back from Uganda, so I haven't been able to use the Internet, or get into my sewing room. I can see my machine, surrounded by all the boxes of stuff that have been in our storage room. Sewing has been thin on the ground, but I have managed to whip up a dress, from the fabric that I am getting for Christmas. I will post photos once i finish the hem.
Some books that I am reading, Wife dressing by Anne Fogarty and Colour me beautiful. I was going to buy CMB from the book depository but thankfully my mum fished out a copy from their vast book collection. You can't beat something that's free, can you. Both books are very interesting read although with Wife Dressing I have rolled my eyes a bit.
I have been experimenting lately, I feel like a change in my life in certain areas, mainly hair and beauty. In my quest for red/interesting/different colour lipsticks, I have come to realise red lipstick colour doesn't suit me in yellow base red, which seems to be very popular and readily available. I have bought about 5 different shades of different brands before I cottoned on to needing a blue based tone. Does any one have suggestions where to find a blue based lipstick or should I just give up? I have discovered fuchsia which is so pretty although I tone it down a lot. I also bought a matching nail polish to the fuchsia lipstick.
Thanks for reading my ramblings.
