adventure of being  
Honestly - it's disgusting, the way bookshops at Christmastime are filled with people WHO DON'T READ BOOKS. Could they not buy the Guinness Book of Records in Tesco's? Or Centra? Or HMV? I defiantly sat in the midst of Bedlam (or; Waterstones) and read A Christmas Carol ... at least until I had to go help my brother pick out clothes. I'd be a great girlfriend, if my boyfriend was gay.

In an effort to convince jocondite that the Irish are mad about hairbands with bows, I provide pictoral proof! (Not that it was, uh, necessary. Or requested. I just felt like camwhoring. I also feel I should celebrate the fact that out of a hundred euro, I only spent a tenner on myself. Go altruism!)



Okay, so this is NOT ACTUALLY a bow. On the other hand it was a euro fifty and looks like something died on my head! It's all good!



This is sickeningly cute. I went down to the shop in this and my pjs; I could tell everyone wanted to be me. Or wondered why I hadn't got dressed, whatever.



Myspacing at its very, very finest.



And again! Because look - on my optimistically-named beside table, there is change! Also known as money I did not spend! REGARD. This does not happen all that often.



My eyeliner is awesome, is it not? (It had better be, anyway; it cost significantly more than a tenner.)



Well, I have promises to keep and many presents to wrap before I sleep ... at least I have Haribo Golden Bears to sustain me.

You are adorable! So are the bows! I wish I could get away with wearing them.

I swear some of them are like: but where do you put the DVD in? People should be forced to present evidence that they read at least one book a month before they can shop there (notice how I don't even discriminate against those who read crime and autobiographies). Otherwise - well, that's why Amazon was invented. Durr. They ruin the atmosphere - and all the 'gift' books have taken so much space there's only one Doug Coupland and three Chuck Palahnuiks available!

The Irish and Blair Waldorf!

Your hairstyle is so good with hair bands. I am sure they wanted to be you. I put on something like that and my hair treats it like the enemy and fights viciously to make it leave. Of course, I have no actual *style* right now, just the overgrown disaster of my summer hair cut. Like last year, this year's resolution will be to cut my hair, maybe.

I think that would insult her greatly, lol.

I am seriously so superficial people roll their eyes at me - I said my hair is worth thousands and they didn't believe me until I pointed out that a haircut and colour (which I get every six weeks or two months) costs 120 euro. SO, REALLY, THOUSANDS. On the other hand, I now spend more time putting GHD curls into my friends' hair and doing their makeup than studying, so at least I have the option of becoming a beautician. (I'm totally Brendon.)

The turquoise liner looks really good tightlined. It's a little otherworldly!

Oh, is that what it's called? I always put it inside my eyelashes, just to get the freaky effect when the excess floats up my eyeball. (No, really. Now THAT is otherworldly. :D)

Layout is thanks to you! I am far too dopey to come up with something like that on my own. (Although, do you know how to make the moodtheme icons show? I miss my panic. D:)

Eyeliner is No7 - I got it in Boots for twelve euro. Okay, it isn't that expensive, but it should be cheaper in sterling. Bah, humbug.

my god, i can never get over how fucking gorgeous you are *wipes drool off chin*

I LOVE THE HAIRBANDS! my fave is the zebra print one in the 2nd pic, i'd definitely wear that! the 1st one is very pretty and delicate so i like it a lot too.

your eyeliner is indeed very gorgeous. i can never get away with using light-coloured eyeliner b/c of my dark skin tone; it simply doesn't look very attractive on me :(

Right back atcha, babe! ♥

I don't suppose they have New Look in Canada? That's where I got it; but I'm sure they'll come out with something similar. :D

Indeed, it must be tiresome to be so naturally gorgeous. :P

Your eyeliner is super awesome. I have eyeliner and hairbow envy.

I think I'll wear them more often, as it really distracts from the fact that the rest of my makeup faded when I took a three-hour nap. >.>
Sparkles: Fine Shindig.hxcpunkchick on December 18th, 2008 04:28 am (UTC)
I was just about to comment on the amazingness of the eyeliner!

Sadly, I have a weird shaped head and can't rock the bow headbands like you do. I have to settle for real bows.

oh, you are such a doll. ilu! and I love hairbows too, though I don't think I actually have any headdbands with them on.

Ughhh, yes.

(And also yes: THE EYELINER. So much yes!)

They are suddenly infecting shops like fluffy rashes, which delights me no end.

I feel so superior, wandering around and thinking, HAH, I ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THESE.

Now I'm tempted to buy the royal blue too. STOP ME.

I love hairband with bows to! :D I have the cutest black and white one. I also have a silver butterfly. Hee.

Where did you get that eyeliner? It's fab, and I can't find decent coloured stuff anywhere :/

Oh wow, silver and butterflies are about two of my favourite things to wear.

I got it in Boots; it's Stay Perfect by No7. If that's any help? They have a huge range of mad colours.

Blue eyeliner looks very smashing! And I love the bows in your hair. I do adore headbands but they leave imprints in my head which is ouchy.

You are very cute! And the eyeliner freaked me out because all the cool girls wore it like that when I was 12 is very nice. ::nods::

Ahaha, you book snob! ;)

I like the first one, it's a flower, no? Bows are cute though. And your eyeliner is gorgeous, I live bright coloured make-up.

And you're making me very jealous by mentioning all the Britishness. :(

Omg, you're in the part of Ireland that's in Britain, right???

I might as well get my own back, considering I was bullied all through school for that particular interest. Meh.

It's a cheapass flower that also looks like an exploded fish, but I like it. :DDD

When I first read that I was all, WTF, THERE'S A PART OF IRELAND IN BRITAIN? Then I remembered the North. (Believe me, it's often overlooked.) And no, I live in the Republic. Where things are far more expensive, lol.

Those headbands are amazing, and I say that with deep sincerity and not a little coveteousness. *g* The first one is particularly pretty (as are you! I love your haircut, too).

It's kind of a good thing no one can see the first one up close ... anyway, I spend a good long while looking for one like yours, but I settled for these in the end. You are an INSPIRATION.
