I realised today that one thing lacking in my life was a beauty guru.
Basically, when I was younger, I’m talking around 15, 16, 17, I used to read magazines all the time. I used to actually read them cover to cover, I had files for beauty/health/fashion/hair, where I’d collect my favourite articles. And nearly every night I would practice all the hair/makeup tips in front of the mirror. It was so much fun. And these days all I do is purchase magazines, read them for five minutes and them add them to my collection of magazines.
So this morning when I accidentally found myself on Zoe Foster-Blake’s beauty blog ‘Fruity Beauty‘ it took me back to my young beauty loving days. I realised these days I have been lacking inspiration and have just been doing the same thing on repeat all the time. Don’t get me wrong, it is not a bad thing, but I find it is fun to change things up every now and then. Also Zoe’s article was talking about hair, and I want better hair, and lovelier hair so I really wanted to try out her suggestions.
I’ve picked Zoe as my beauty guru (And partly fashion guru, because I like her style too) because I actually trust her. I feel like if I had met her accidentally somewhere that we would have become friends. I feel like she is genuine and honest. And I think she is nice too because she even replied to my comment on her post. Not many people out there take the time to do that.
Here’s my illustration of the nice things I bought myself today ( two of which were suggested by Zoe) on my way home from uni. I was exhausted and these made me happy.
The first one is L’oreal Professional Tecni art Volume lift. It’s a light spray mist.
The second; Batiste dry shampoo. I haven’t used this brand before. Dry shampoo is the shit.
Thirdly; Peppermint Magazine. My teacher suggested I read this. So I’m going to see what it’s all about.
