A slight obsession!!!

My very first obsession

I was twelve when started secondary school and had no interest in make-up or boys (well apart from some movie stars but that's different!). I have always been interested in arts and crafts but it was never an obsession for me. For our first history lesson we opened our books and the first illustration was the pyramids of Giza, I thought how magical. That history lesson was probably the only class I had paid complete and full attention to the teacher during my six years at Mercy!! 

And that is where my obsession had begun! Since then I have be collected little bits and bobs from ebay, charity shops, car boot sales and markets. 

I got this framed papyrus for £3 in a charity shop in Birmingham, UK

A collection of books from charity shops, the Tutankhamen deception is really good read for any Egyptology fan.

The large gold Ankh was a gift and the smaller one I bought on ebay.

A bithday gift from a wonderful friend. Necklace around her neck was found in a charity shop. Too heavy to wear!

My make-up mirror given to me by my boyfriend. We were on holiday and he seen it... "its only €50 he shouted from the other side of the store, I have to get it for you" 

For years I wanted to get an Egyptian tattoo and spent a good long time thinking about it and what I wanted. I bought this papyrus on eBay and starred at it everyday for about three years and decided that's what I wanted. I drew it out and made a few changes and brought it to a tattoo artist in Birmingham, her name was Laura and she did a fab job.

My Third tattoo, Ma'at the Egyptian goddess for truth, order, balance and justice. I also have a tattoo on my ankle of the Egyptian symbol Ankh also known as  key of life.

I have seen some home decorating programmes where people have gone to new levels of obsessed and decorated their whole house in an Egyptian theme. I don't think ill be going that far!!

Its been a while since Iv'e searched ebay and been to a charity shop. The ones in Ireland are crap if Im being honest. I lived in a town called Harborne in Birmingham and the high street had 12 charity shops! Every Sunday I would walk up the street, visit every single one and then go for a pint! I now have a growing obsession with make-up and boys...one in particular!!

Sprucing up the Gaff!!

I have to say I have a new addiction, this wont be the last you hear of me and my decoupaging!! A big Thank you to GummyBears0001 for introducing me to this wonderful craft :D 

Mini haul!

I went shopping today to get some crafty supplies! And ended up treating myself to some other stuff too!!

From Inspiring Designs I bought - Decopatch paper €1.25c per sheet.
Decopatch Glue €4.95 
Fun paint brushes from Easons €2.59 (but the label on the shelf said €1.99 so i got them for €1.99...score!)

I really love wearing leggings with a tunic or short dress and during the summer or with shorts. Got these in Monsoon on sale reduced from €21.50 to just €7.00. I hope they last longer than the ones I usually get in penneys!

The purple laces on these lovelies caught my eye as soon as I entered Clarks. I usually don't go in there because its very expensive but I was with my nan and she wanted to find some walking shoes - something that  she can go walking in but that doesnt look like runners seemingly. women aye! When I seen the price tag I tried them on straight away. Bargain, €65 reduced to €19. They also came with these lovely grey velvet laces.

I hate when your trying on shoes and the sales assistant stands right over you! I had enough trouble bending over to take my shoes off while trying not to flash the whole store my nickers without the added pressure of a complete stranger starring at me. Strangers stress me out! 

I am really impressed with my purchases, the next blog will surely be something colourful with peacock paper and lots of glue!

    Eyes of the day

    I tweeted this picture of two eye shadow swatches today and asked should I put the Purple on the crease and the gold on the lid or vice versa. @emmalouisegrace suggest I put the purple on the crease so I did just that!

    End result!! The purple is by MUA and and gold is a mixture of Urban decays Half baked and Sunday School by Simply Kendra Cosmetics.

    I used Too Faced Glamour Gloss in shade love bites and on my cheeks I used L'Oreal paris Cashmere Perfect Blush in mauve charmant, I am loving that blush at the moment!
