Irregular Choice: Bee Delicious (Pink)

It's been a while, but last time if you recall, I showed you the blue Bee Delicious from the Irregular Choice macaron heel launch. I mentioned there that I bought two colours to compare and decide which one to keep in person. I opted to keep the blue (see the beauties at home on their shelf here) and sent back this pair, the pink.  However, I took photos before doing so. I really wanted to, because they differed so much from the stock images online. Little did I know that they were sneaky, little boots that like to masquerade as pastel pink on camera and in print. Oh yes indeedy, but in reality, they have a warmer tone, are brighter, bolder with quite a neon flash. I had the same issues with the pink Trixy unicorns a while ago and so I've really had to play around editing these to a more realistic tone. From memory, they are still brighter than this (definitely more fluorescent toned), but the colour was starting to get a little too saturated, so this was as close as I could get. It's definitely something to be aware of if you aren't buying in person. No matter how many pastel pink 'real' photos you see online, that's not what you'll get in the flesh.

Irregular Choice: Disney Muppets Preview 1

After the announcement last week, I'm delighted to share with you a sneak peek of the newest Irregular Choice Disney collaboration, The Muppets! We've been told to expect "glamorous shoes and fabulous bags featuring the one and only Miss Piggy, the world’s most famous frog Kermit, The Great Gonzo, Animal and other much loved characters". I'm struggling to contain my excitement to be honest, it's such a terrific pairing between the two brands and we definitely should expect wonderful things. Starting with drumming extraordinaire, Animal.

Irregular Choice: Bee Delicious

Irregular Choice Bee Delicious AW17 macaron concept heel boot
The Irregular Choice Autumn/Winter range is steadily streaming into stores and a brand new concept heel launched last Friday. A rather tasty treat, the macaron heel came in 3 designs, each in 3 colourways, all beautiful. Immediately I was drawn to the only boot, because it was perhaps the fanciest and you know I love a boot! Still not discovered why, but they really do excite me! I think generally boots tend come in darker colours, with less decoration than shoes, because it's expected that you'll wear them in winter and be wanting practicality over anything else, but this does not apply to IC boots. I love my wonderful collection of their boots, which come in a range of styles and bright colours, glitter, pastels, prints.  They are just as exciting as my shoes. Just like these.

Funko Vinyl Vixens: Batgirl

So excited to add this to my little Funko collection. I've really, really tried to not collect too many of their Pop! Vinyl (PV) figures over the years (because I already hoard collect enough stuff).  They've really taken off though, you can collect practically any movie, TV series or pop culture character.  I have a handful that I really couldn't resist and then came the Rock Candy (RC) line. Oh my gosh, I love RC's. I wasn't restrained at all when they brought these out.  Totally different from the simplistic, button eyed, big-square headed PV, RC were more in proportion and I loved their scale and detailing. I bought almost the entire Barbie line (the 1980 Afro Barbie is one of my favourite things ever). Then I went onto collect the Barbie Mystery Minis (MM). Well actually my sister did and she didn't get the one she hoped for (blind box), so kept giving me them! They are cheekier, smaller, with cartoon like faces-not nearly as cool as the RC's in my opinion.  I also have bits and pieces I've gotten as gifts, like a Dorbz (smiley, happiest things ever) Ariel, MM Villains Ursula and now loads of Disney MM, that my sister has collected doublers of!

Beauty Lately...

So, a few weeks ago Mum and I went out for lunch (if an ice-cream sundae qualifies as a meal!) and I'm making a point of wearing makeup when I leave the house now (rare occasions, but I'll take that). I didn't have long to get ready but used a few new things and thought I'd share my thoughts, alongside some other new items I've been playing with.   makeup, fragrance and skincare product reviews I've been using lately
