Meet Carissa www.instagram.com/carisssssa

I wish they all could be California girls

She is in Oban HelpXing at the Backpackers again for the FOURTH time – yes, that is how much of an excellent boss I am.  Never mind the fact that this technically means she has already left three times… she just can’t stay away.

But Carissa is more than an outstanding unpaid worker, she is also a very dear friend.  She is a creative soul, willing to indulge me, schmokin’ hawt and able to throw excellent poses.  Bingo.

As regular readers will know, I’ve gone a bit mad on the online wig procurement lately, and it seems silly not to put this transvestite treasure trove to good use.  I’ve always loved wigs, in fact, for my 21st birthday, BFF Sophie and I had a party together to celebrate, and the theme was… WIGS.

If memory serves, this was when I first dabbled in the mullet lifestyle.  I bought a big, bad, white-blonde Tina Turner/David Bowie-in-the-Labyrinth mullet and bloody loved it.  I wonder where that wig is now.  Probably in storage at Mum and Dad’s, bugger, I shouldn’t mention that because now they’re going to read this and bring up how much my crap is crapping up their garage.

the only thing better than a wig, is TWO wigs

But anyway.  Carissa came over the other night and the green paint was still out from my date with a bunch of daffodils, so I was like, can I paint you green and draw a bunch of question marks between your boobs?

literally, a human WTF

Like I said, she is a very good sport.

Carissa is a female Riddler.  She is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.

Me, supporting (a) Denmark in the World Cup or (b) marriage equality? Cast your votes in the comments below!

… but I think we – all us human adult people – all should have the same rights.  Equal rights for everyone.  The right to vote, own property, earn the same wage for doing the same job.  And if you’re in love with someone and you want to get married, that should be that.

You can't argue with Oprah.

You can’t argue with Oprah.

It’s a bit embarrassing, that in 2013, we’re even still discussing it.  Big cheers for New Zealand who have just passed the bill to legalise same-sex marriage.  Now can the rest of us get with the fuckin’ program?

If you DON’T believe in marriage equality, you’re like … one of those people 50 years ago who thought it should be illegal for black people to marry white people.  That’s what you are.

And if that’s you, please get your eyeballs off my flog.  This website isn’t for assholes.

I’m serious

MUA Mascara, Shade #7 (pink)

16 Apr

Here it is, no other eye makeup except for the pink mascara.

And this below is the pink mascara with black eyeliner under my top lashes and on my waterline.

And last of all, this (below) is pink mascara applied on top of black mascara, with black eyeliner as before.

I had more luck applying it with my own mascara brush (which is only an old Maybelline one that I cleaned up, from a Colossal Volume tube) as the mascara wand that it came with sucked.  It also took a good few layers to get this colour intensity.  You could be subtle and just put a touch of colour on the tips of your lashes, if you like.

I would say it worked best for me using black eyeliner (the middle picture) – on its own it was a little bit pink-eye, but with the black eyeliner it was a bit more punk.  It worked better using only the pink mascara (as opposed to layering it over black mascara, as it just made my lashes too chunky).

I’ll give it a go some day with some electric blue eyeshadow or liner, for contrast.

Best thing about this mascara?  It was £1 😀

nailed it: carbon grey with studs

This is Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay 7 Days gel nail colour in Carbon Grey #815.  So far it’s been on for 3-4 days and showing no signs of wear – impressed.  It’s a really nice dark gunmetal grey with just the right amount of shimmer to it, and the finish has stayed really shiny.  I applied two coats to get the opacity I like.

Along the tips of my nails I put some little diamond stickers just for fun.  The purple nail is a Sephora colour.

High five!

BRAvissIMO!
