hello children

how are we today?

i am on my 3rd cup of coffee after 2 late shifts and a concert one after the other

hence beaucoup the under eye concealor grin


black rock & roll tshirt
vintage flared jeans

avon mineral makeup
teeny line of brown avon glimmerstick
bobbi brown concealor (over huge under eye baggage trunks)
bourjois rose d'or blush
sexy mother pucker gloss in yummy plum

i would like to think i look like jo wiley/lauren laverne/insert rock chick type coolio here but fear it's edging more toward eddie from ab fab

ah well...

ComradeJing Wed 22-Jun-11 09:25:22

grin Eddie from abfab

Right now I'm wearing a great big mandarin oriental bathrobe. Tis 3:25 in the afternoon and frankly I'm done for the day. If someone could take my delightful DD off my hands and give me a very, very large drink or a bottle of wine and a straw I would be happy.

ComradeJing Wed 22-Jun-11 09:26:19

But tell me of Avon glimmerstick please...

wordsonapage Wed 22-Jun-11 09:29:42

I have the beginings of a migraine...
It is mid 40's so I have a rather grubby vest top and ancient cotton crops on
No make up as it slides off and hair tied back

I cannot frikking WAIT to go back to England for the summer

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 09:29:55

oh they are marv, they are those self sharpening type eyliners. go on v smooth and last. i do like a bit of avon.

if it's 3.25 where you are then surely it must be after 5pm somewhere in the world...i would mix a drink if i were you grin

wordsonapage Wed 22-Jun-11 09:32:56

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 09:35:12

wordsonapage Wed 22-Jun-11 09:44:08

Ah yes

[twirls Hercule tache]

Thats the doozy...

Rather disconcertingly theres the Cheryl Cole fight for this love video playing on the least i'm better dressed than her at the mo....

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 09:46:57

righty ho

am off to mop the floor



i will return to read about all your stylishness later <<hard stare at all and sundry>>

never ever be tempted to dress as if you are in a music video

especially that cheryl cole one

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 11:11:01

floor done

bogs scrubbed

come on people tell me your togs!

aquavit Wed 22-Jun-11 11:17:22

I look like an appalling playground cliche today: leggings, biker boots, printed dress (it's Boden fgs) and chunky long hooded cardi. The shame

Though in my defence I am pregnant and thus comfort over style is current motto. Also, the cardi is actually very nice.

Face is better: LM tinted moisturiser, pale pink MAC blush, MAC naked lunch shadow, plenty of eyebrow pencil, new mascara which is v good actually (L'oreal telescopic I think? Boots had run out of my normal one and I got it in a complete flustered panic), Chanel coco shine lippie in monte carlo.

Also beachy waved hair courtesy of my new straighteners and the BRILLIANT advice of TattyDevine!

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 11:18:37

oh congrats aquavit when are you due?? how are you feeling??

the rocket dogs have got HOLES in them. sob. sad

superjobeespecs Wed 22-Jun-11 11:18:59

black leggings white plimsoles black white and pink jumper thing and a white cardi.. and a grey hairband.. and a red bobble.. i look a state grin didnt even brush my wild curly hair this morning just chucked it up hence the hairband

aquavit Wed 22-Jun-11 11:25:31

Thanks Mayor! November. Feeling triffic now (had forgotten how vile 1st trimester is).

Very sorry to hear about the dogs. Where are the holes?

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 11:31:30

delighted for you darling smile what no dc will this be?

holes are at the back, where the heel of the boot meets the sole (both boots). you can't actually see them while i'm wearing them but they are definitely getting bigger. think will wave them at my nice local cobbler and plead but am so afraid he will shake his head at me i keep putting it off...

doggydaft Wed 22-Jun-11 11:32:51

I am wearing jeans (ancient with a hole in the pocket), blue vest with checked shirt on top and navy converse.

On face avon calming foundation (tis fab for my very troublesome skin-much better than any of the high end brands I have tried smile), bobbi brown blush, bobbi brown bone eyeshadow, mally black mascara and carmex lip balm.

Have lovely bouncy hair courtesy of "big hair".

LovelyDaffs Wed 22-Jun-11 11:34:52

Am in gym gear and really ought to have showered and dressed properly by now, am procrastinating as I can't turn up to school later in said gear. I could tell you that I'm waiting for inspiration before I decide what to wear, but actually I'm just being lazy.

aquavit Wed 22-Jun-11 11:35:50

aw Mayor smile thanks. no 2. AKA THE LAST ONE (crosses legs)

Your cobbler is indeed going to shake his head at you. Or, if he doesn't, I want his number immediately.

Ambernj1 Wed 22-Jun-11 11:38:19

Black Yoga pants, Isabella Oliver cami, this knitted hoodie and a Maje snake print scarf. No shoes or make up as am slumming it at home.

My iPad just changed 'slumming' to 'slimming' which amused me immensely as am 38+4 today...

JohnniesBitch Wed 22-Jun-11 11:41:45

Another boring work day. in the office all day with no client visits or meetings, so cream with flower print asos maxi dress, pink cardi from new look, and purple birkenstock madrids.
hair up in one of those big clips like a bull dog clip!
make up- avon mineral powder foundation, green clinique eyeshadow, green clarins eyeliner (dark green/khaki) bourjois bronzer, mac lipstick ina boring neutral beigey/pink, benefit bad gal lash mascara, as was first one i picked up out of the make up bag, but wishing i had put something else on as have itchy hayfever eyes and going to look like a panda if i'm not careful.

MayorNaze Wed 22-Jun-11 11:52:31

i will let you know the verdict of the cobbler (that sounds like code for somethinghmm)

rightyho, the rain has stopped so i'm off for a run


pink4ever Wed 22-Jun-11 11:52:31

I am wearing-
tea dress-peacocks
ballet pumps-new look
denim jacket-peacocks

AuldAlliance Wed 22-Jun-11 12:27:30

Brown sleeveless top (dunno where from; ancient)
Beige crops (ditto)
Greeny espadrilles (from the spermarket, they are my slippers)

Not chic.

AuldAlliance Wed 22-Jun-11 12:28:24

sperm-market = supermarket, obv. Not sure Carrefour's management would like the suggestion that they sell sperm.
