Free Tibet

A song came onto my iTunes today on shuffle that I haven't listened to for so long. I love it, it reminds me of a really lovely time in my life a few years ago. I miss that time, but I'm not sure if I would go back to it if I could, as I believe memories turn rose and peach tinted over time, and appear far more idyllic than they were... One of my favourite bands were playing in Cork in the Cruiscín yesterday - High Tone, who have recently come out with a new album - I was beyond gutted that I couldn't attend the gig! Did anyone go see them?

Free Tibet - Hilight Tribe


Do Not Panic - High Tone


Northern Lights - High Tone


Here I am looking quite scraggled with my sunhat - though when I set foot outside, the brim is flipped firmly downwards. You can find this on Lookbook HERE.



On my Formspring someone requested a tutorial for a cut-crease look, so here is a very colourful take on it! You can make this a lot simpler colour-wise if you wish, just change all the yellow/coral shadows to nude, or white - and the purple/pink to black. I must say thank you to everyone who is asking me make-up questions, I really enjoy answering them! Everything listed below is MAC unless specified. This make-up look is actually really lovely on green eyes, as you may see it really brings it out in mine.



Finish your facial make-up. I used Face & Body Foundation in White, Blot Powder in Light, Porcelain Pink MSF as blush, Strada to contour. For lips, I used Subculture L/L, Dressmaker L/S, and Partial to Pink C/G.

  13. For quite a while I thought you were finnish living in Finland (I'm finnish, so I assumed based on your name), but then I read on. I was quite dissapointed, because I was totally prepared for bombarding you with questions about getting pale foundations from Finland!

    You have a wonderful first name by the way, not too many stars out there in the world. :)
