August Wishlist!
August Wishlist! by vickiesimps23 featuring peach makeup
Here is my August wishlist! I have started to prepare for more wintery weather, as no doubt the sun will soon disappear for a while! The hat and coat are both practical yet fashionable, as I feel that these will last me a few seasons and will be good while the weather is still transitioning between autumn and winter. I fell in LOVE with these shoes and think they are a good price for a boot and will last me a long long time! The blusher is more a necessity, as this is my blusher of choice most days and my current one is starting to run out. Enjoy!

so my blog is looking pretty bare at the moment, but don’t worry I’ve had a busy couple of weeks but will be posting some nice images of my work and other bits and bobs soon :). If you want me to test a certain look for an idea or a look let me know, I’m up for testing 🙂

I’m quite new to the blogging world and although picking a blog theme was difficult I was completely stuck on how to come up with a short and catchy name, something that stands out but something that represented me and what I like to do.

I started off by creating a brainstorm around make-up and included elements that I liked including fashion, art, things that I enjoy in my spare time, as well as elements in my work. After a while I started to pick out words and put them together, hence creating my name.

I was given this technique by someone else and found it really useful. I hope you do too. It’s a more interesting way of coming up with a name, creating something different and completely random that represents you.
