Faces of Belleza

I am such a big fan of Shyla’s work at Belleza. There is incredible depth to her faces – particularly around the eyes with flecks of light that are so realistic. Have you seen Amelia yet? She’s brand new and stunning. I am showing the pale tone – makeup 9, with gorgeous grey and eggshell eyes. I also added freckles… Read more →

Hi, I suck at hunts

Hi, I’m Gillian and I suck at hunts. I have spent many hours searching the Wayward Hunt sites and failed a lot. I did finally find the skin I had been coveting from The Skinnery but admittedly, I had help from a lovely fellow hunter who helped me. We had both spent ridiculous amounts of time over 2 days trying… Read more →

Great Expectations

My cute hair which I forgot to pose with my hair roundup yesterday is from Olive. The paintbrushes have an on/off hud, although mine was not working for me. I wouldn’t want to hide them anyway because they are very sweet. This morning I went back and grabbed redelivery of my LeLutka mesh heads, so I could start fresh with… Read more →

During that time though, there was all sorts of “business wear” (a lot of it was terrible – made by these… Read more →

Skin Fair

I remember Skin Fair from way back when. Probably different organizers now, I really don’t know. Anywayyyyy, in classic Gillian style, I rushed in and out. I picked up 1000 demos (I only know because my inventory went up by a huge amount) and purchased a few of my “sure things” from Glam Affair, The Skinnery and Belleza. By now,… Read more →

Covet

I coveted this hat from the moment I saw it. The perfect cloche ladies hat in a delicate cream. I am a diehard Downton Abbey fan, so this was not an option not to have. I miss Sybil :/ I did not style it in period 1920s obviously. And normally you would see a tighter hair underneath, but I wanted… Read more →

Taking risks

Anna Wintour is one of my heroes. She is fascinating and mysterious, unless you believe everything written in The Devil Wears Prada. One of the things I love about her is that no matter what she is wearing (I mean aside from her sunglasses), she will look strong but still very feminine. She doesn’t consider herself a powerful person, yet… Read more →
