Blistering Barnacles!!!

I was a propa TinTin fan when I was a young un!

Never cared much for TinTin nor Snowy. For me, it was all about Captain Haddock and his barmy expletives! He was a man with a ummm "unique" way with words. Here are some choice cuts from the Captain's log:

"Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles".
"Miserable blundering barbecued blister . . . "
"Dunderheaded coconuts! "

Anyway the point of my mentioning of this lovable cranky character is this: I bought a dress and thought to myself "OOOOOOH CAPTAIN HADDOCK" but it turns out that my imagination has been splicing things and playing silly buggers with me AGAIN. I hereby conclude that the dress is not very Captain-like AT ALL!! Ah well...I still love it!

So here is a quick and breezy LOTD which has nothing to do with the Captain but much to do with my love for the combination of gold and navy!


Jamilla gave me this lippy! It's the Dior Addict High Shine one in Flamenco Red.

Me ole mug!

I am definitely more of a mug than a china cup me thinks. But if care to know what I painted my face with here is the list:

Lioele Water Drop BB Cream

UD Shadows in: Sin, Sell Out, YDK

UD liners in : Zero and Rockstar

Dior Lippy: Flamenco Red

Becca Creme Blush: Hyacinth - just a touch so I don't look like a total clown.

NARS Multiple: Copacabana - Works amazingly well in toning down and adding shimmer to Becca Creme Blush....like a blush corrector.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara.

been playing with online photo editors in my search for funky frames. Oh but this is my new dress. Grabbed it from FCUK for a bargain price in their pre-Crimbo sale. Yup 50% off!

Dazzled my me buttons.
Forgot to put on my shoes! ooooops!

There you 'ave it me hearties! I promised those who requested a couple more outfit posties and I think I have delivered.

I will be doing a fancy little giveaway soon so do follow me if you want in! For this prize will only be up for grabs to those who been following before the contest goes up. I prefer to remember my loyal readers than to attract more. I wonder if that is terribly pretentious of me?


  1. I love the outfit and that red lipstick is hot! It really suits you!

  2. ooh i love the dress! tintin is my childhood favorite comics till now!! i love the way captian haddock speaks in the comic! super funny!

  8. I have secretly been keeping up to date with your posts, daily might I add! Sorry I can't make a comment for each one though, I'm doing it on the sly at school hahaha... Loved the muses post, I love stuff like that. You always get me researching which is my favourite past time. There's something about being in the library, the smell of old books... God I'm such a bore darling!

  9. ACK SOOO CUTE!! You always have the cutest outfits yasumi!! I wish I had your legs! Then I'd wear tights just like you!! And NO ONE wears a red lip like you!!
