I simply remember my favourite things…

“Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
Silver white winters that melt into springs,
These are a few of my favourite things……” Maria ‘Sound of Music’

Call me weird (only if you must), but there are a few items I own that always seem to fix a smile on my face. Most of these consist of my bag contents and I’m beginning to wonder if it’s a subconscious act of carrying ‘a ray of sunshine’ with me wherever I go.

Vaseline ‘Creme Brule’: What can I say….. it’s Limited Edition!

L’Occitane cherry blossom hand cream: It’s my delicate heaven only it’s in a tube.

Mint Green Barry M nail polish: It draws a subtle type of attention, the kind I’m all about.

Gucci Guilty: That scent is a post for another day. It makes me smell like a million bucks!

Tea forte: Are you pronouncing it correctly? If you are you’ll have the smile I’m talking about…. the twinkle in your eye. *FYI I don’t even drink tea. Lol*

Primark across the body bag: It looks expensive, except it was only Β£6!!!!

Accessorize necklace: That necklace makes rags feel like gold.

MAC mascara: I ran out of mascara in December and my Mum got me this tube. It made my month!

Ps: I’m heart broken by the Dana plane crash of the 3rd of June, 2012. I cannot believe that planes still crash in 2012. RIP to those that lost their lives. May their souls rest in perfect peace.

The Hacking Scandal: “Modern Day Mona Lisa”

I leave the house for a couple of hours only to check my Twitter account and find that somehow, a post has been uploaded on my blog. I guess such are the consequences of leaving my account open on Taiwo’s netbook (‘Kiko’). She’s cleverly named the post “The Hacking Scandal” and ironically named Wura “Modern Day Mona Lisa” Lol. I have to admit, the post is hilarious, for this reason I’ll be leaving it up. Here’s the one-liner she’s left in reminder:

“One reason you should always log out!!! :)”

Wura’s signature pose… Lol

Top:H&M

Ps: The 1st picture has a different “Bonita Valli” embossed on it as I was experimenting on photoshop; however 24hrs on I’ve forgotten how I did it, so I’ve had to find an alternative which I will be experimenting with in my next few posts.

PPs: I went for a makeup class and can’t wait to upload the pictures, it was fun, fun FUN πŸ™‚ You’ll love it!
