...SO YOU RAN TO MAKE MORE OF AN I M P R E S S I O N


Best legs of this season. If you're going to do legs then do them well as S/S10 proves to show more bare leg than ever. Don't be afraid, just be open minded.

BACK FROM B R A Z I L [PHOTO HEAVY!]

It feels awful to be back in such a miserable and cold country but what can I say. I had business to attend to back here in England and so unfortunately after I got home from the airport, I could only stay in London for that evening to be with my boyfriend. The next day I jetted back to Staffordshire ready to handle my University issues.

There are too many photos to show off so I've picked a few of the best to show you guys what its like back home :)



















<3 Enjoy

LANCOME T A T O O COMPETITION!


I'm off to Brazil in 5days time and the last time I went, I got my first tattoo.
I only ever want to get sentimental tatoo's on my body so that when I die, all the memories can go with me. However, I have been SUPER pissed off at the rising trend of Butterfly tattoos because my name actually is a specie of butterfly [the red brush-footed variety] so when I had that ink'd on me, it was purely a commemoration of myself. The music note underneath symbolises something I really love.
People nowadays have just tainted the idea of a butterfly tattoo or anything musical, as purely aesthetic. YOU F*CKERS!


Vanessa ^^






Luckily for me, I don't have to prove myself to anybody and now I want a tattoo to represent ME AS AN ARTIST. I'm making this into a competition because the first attempt at a competition didn't go down well lol.  
I have a Lancome eyeshadow palette to give away to the person that can suggest me a tattoo design to represent me as an Artist.

Happy 2010, May Your blogs be F R U I T FUL!

Small pieces of my Xmas activities in its material form



I pimped out the phone and laptop with the matching cases lol. It's about time I invested in the things I use everyday.



Yes that's a MIU MIU bag with a MIU MIU bag inside. I'll be blogging that shortly...however I will be buying another bag from there so maybe I should do them both at once? [My boyfriend bought this one for me :) I love him <3]



There's a few gifts in this shot. Underwear [totally was not going to blog that!], Classic Tall Black Uggs [University attire], The Marc Jacob Daisy giftset which is WOW.


There they are in the corner of the shot.



GET THIS SET! If I'm gonna recommend you beauty bloggers something...I'd say get the 'Too Faced' beauty kit. The Lip injection is seriously good, the mascara is nice & light, the Eyeshadow Primer is yet to be tested and the glittery eyeliner is cute.
After I saw how much my mum paid for it I wasn't surprised. Too Faced are slightly over priced but I reckon its worth it..........so far.


The Non-material Form



As unflattering as a half shot maybe, Pongo [my dog] is way too big to get a full shot of him being mid air so this was as good as it got. He loves his Xmas monkey Mum bought him lol



This year's skinny tree. Mum didn't want a fat one...



My cat Lily has many a nickname but undoubtedly the most appropriate would be 'Drooly' as coined by my dear friend Antonio. Rightly so, in this photo if you look carefully he is drooling lmao.



My boyfriend yesterday, Pre-drunken New Year state. Look at those eyes! Gosh...
