Things that make me, me.

We all have our little things, those materialistic things we cannot live with out, and moments that we do at certain times for routine that we so enjoy. And that's what makes us, us. Me, me. And you, you.
For me, I'm a simple girl - I like my lazy mornings in bed, but I also love the hustle and bustle of a non-stop life. I like writing dates in my diary, and eating toast in bed with a big mug of tea. And I like to make myself look nicer, because that's what makes me feel nice. That's what makes me feel like Katy Mitten.
There is not a day that goes by where I don't straighten my hair - whether that's vain is a different question, but after years of being haunted with big un-manageable frizzy locks, the biggest hell yeah to feeling good is when my hair is sleek and my fringe is just so. These Corioliss straighteners* from Just My Look are the perfect fix for when I'm running late in the morning. What's even better for my wild hair, is that these fun looking straighteners have a temperature control - meaning that I can heat these up and whizz through my hair in minutes (well, not quite!)
There's no more Frances Houseman hair over here that's for sure!
If you'd have told me two years ago that this girl here would be wearing makeup, even my cat would have laughed at you. I wasn't so interested in it, and after years of people telling me I had good skin, I never thought about it. Until I discovered lipstick. And then blusher. And then an eyebrow pencil, and a little bit of powder. And now just a smidge of mascara too (a smidge indeed!). For me, lipstick makes me feel like I've got my stuff together. Like I know what I'm doing, even when I don't. I guess, it makes me feel sassy.
But nobody needs to know that I own five lipsticks, and they're all the same colour. That's OK too right?
So we may not get so much sunshine here in England, but it doesn't mean that I'm without my sunglasses. After owning countless pairs of sunglasses, with the dreaded end of me either losing them/misplacing them or worse - sitting on them, I treasured my first pair of proper women's sunglasses. They lasted two years, and I still don't know what happened to them. And I mourned for them, until I saw the exact same pair last week and knew it was meant to be. It was a silver lining and all that as they say...
Dearly beloved Ray Ban's* - I won't ever let you out of my sight again. Not ever.
Perfume. The one thing that I seem to drink in my house - well not literally. But you'd think I either make my tea from it, or spend my evenings soaking in perfume in the bath with the way I get through perfume! I'm a little obsessed about smelling nice, because y'know, normal procedure. I have had to restrict myself to Next and Zara perfume for daily use and then Miss Dior and Marc Jacobs for best - because, if I could, I'd be swimming in the stuff.
But I suppose I've bills to pay, so it's back to adding it to the Christmas list!
