BRUNETTE





So I loved my hair blonde. I really did. But I have very fine hair and to keep it the colour blonde I really loved (almost white blonde) the health of my hair suffered sooo I decided to go back to my natural colour of brown. Luckily red lipstick go with both colours huh ;)
My beloved and I went on a date night to see 'The Avengers' and I really loved it. Totally wish I had super powers. (I would be able to fly and heal any illness). Hope you guys had a lovely weekend xxx

INSIDE MY PURSE



So this is the purse I usually carry around with me day to day. I used to carry around a massive bag all the time filled with lots of stuff but I prefer to carry just the essentials now and stash other items in pockets or my car so I'm not lugging around unnecessary items all the time. This is one of my favourite purses (purchased from trademe) and it is small enough to take from day to night easily. So here are the goodies that are always in my purse:
Lucas paw paw (what doesn't this stuff do?)
hayfever and paracetamol tablets
Lipstick and lip liner
Foundation compact with mirror
Asthma inhaler
essential cards (eftpos, drivers licence etc)
Keys
Photos-I carry a whole stash of photos around with me of husband and fur babies 
iphone (was busy taking the photos)

SUNSHINE







So I have been the worst blogger in the world. The reasons why I have been such a slacker are that I have been very under the weather for the past few weeks (a variety of back issue, colds and asthma) and I have simultaneously started my first full time teaching job-teaching drama at Lincoln High school, which means I have been very busy.
So my sincere apologies for my slackness and I will try to make up for it with lots of posts.
This one is an inspiration post-one of the ladies I admire and turn to for style inspiration from her movies-the beautiful Jennifer Ehle.
I had a major girl crush on Jennifer Ehle the first time I saw her in the BBC mini series of Pride and Prejudice   at age 11 (one of my favourite books as well) and she has also done a movie called 'Sunshine' in 1999 with Ralph Fiennes, that I adore and I watch both P and P and Sunshine many a time over for style inspiration. The beautiful empire line dresses and bonnets of course adorn her Elizabeth Bennet and in Sunshine, which spans the late 19th century to the 1940's, her costumes are beautiful lacy, feminine clothes that look so soft and delicate to wear. If you haven't seen either of these and you like these styles, have a girly afternoon with tea and cupcakes and watch them. xxxxx BLV
