I'm regretting my previous post now, this is BETTER:

Gold, oversize, studded, verging on novelty. I'm all over that shit.

Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'

With the season that's in it (finally Dublin is seeing a decent amount of sun), I thought I'd mention one of my summer time essentials (do I sense a possible recurring theme? Probably, stay tuned). If, like me, you're a bit scummy and refuse to wash your hair for at least a week after being in the sea, then this will be right up your alley. Salt water seems to do something to my curly/tangly hair that you just can't replicate. But this is absolutely the next best thing:

Bumble and Bumble surf spray.

Spray it liberally onto overly clean hair and you'll look properly scruffy, and no-one will suspect you've just washed your hair.

*PS. I've been getting lots of lovely feedback on the blog of late, it's all very much appreciated. If anyone has any more thoughts, lash a comment in there somewhere or drop me an email.

We finally got the American Apparel nail polish into the Dublin store. Obviously I've been solidly buying one every few days since.. So far I have amassed:

Rose Bowl, a solid darkish/lightish pink. Not my usual colour scheme (ie. not as beigey pink as I would have liked).

Cotton, a really satisfyingly tippex-y white.

Berries, a departure for me but it matches most of my non-nude lipsticks and looks surprisingly good with a tan.

Coney Island, my absolute favorite so far, a proper, slightly offensive neon pink.

Next I think I might go with Factory Grey, it looks promising. I've been gagging for a decent dark grey since I got a Nails Inc. mani in London and didn't ever get to buy the colour (rage). Also can't wait to get my paws on the summer range; a load of neutral pastels. At least two variations on beige to add to the pile. Exciting.

As for quality, I'm never sure about the chip resistance of nail polish as a)I always use a top coat (Nails Inc. til I can get my hands on some Seche Vite) and b)I get bored and usually pick it off within 24 hours. But I like the consistancy, pretty fool proof, and with two coats you get a really decent opaque finish. Plus, at 7 quid you can't really go wrong, can you?

Can't get enough of Australian designers these days.

Can we talk tomorrow?

What is it with famous people and having insanely good gene pools? I've become mildyly obsessed, Dellal-style, with Coco Sumner, daughter of Sting.

Handily being compared here to Alice, who we know from past experience I'm a bit mad about.

The best bit about her is that I genuinely very much enjoy her tunes. Props to her for not just being shit and famous, it's probably actually a massive pain in the ass being Sting's daughter. Plus imagine the world knowing about your parents' tantric sex habits. Rough.
