I love little treats, don't you? Little things that you really don't need but brighten up your day. I thought I'd share these with you because I've been raving about them on twitter and they seemed to raise a few questions.
I didn't mean to buy all three, really I didn't! I just went to buy a can of diet coke... Only then I noticed the free teeny, tiny Benetint on the cover of Glamour Magazine and was compelled to walk two miles and visit six different shop in order to nab myself mini Posietint and High Beam to complete the trio. All for six pounds sterling! The only problem is that I'm stuck with three copies of a magazine that I have no interest in reading. Hats off to Glamour magazine's marketing department!
The Girl of My Dreams
Dear, sweet, illusive Lula stole a corner of my heart from the very moment I spyed Kirsten Dunst coyly peering from the cover. Now, twice a year I make the pilgrimage to Anologue Books - the best bookshop in Edinburgh, where they always keep a copy for me. Probably because I incessantly hassle them on twitter. Thanks for your stellar service and sorry for being annoying!
Issue 12 is captivating as ever, with interviews from Mia Wasikowska, Kinga Burza and a hoard of beautifully styled editorials. I especially enjoyed Troop Lula by Rory Satran. She writes about her love affair with Girls Scouting and the trials and tribulations of joining an American troop whilst living in London. Rodarte and Orla Kiely have also contributed 'Troop Lula' uniform designs alongside stills from Troop Beverly Hills (yes, that is young Jenny Lewis) and The Parent Trap (with Hayley Mills, not the awful remake) which I haven't seen for years. I wish I could say it was a childhood favourite but I was only three when it was released and in reality I only found it when I was about 17 and completely obsessed with Rilo Kiley. However, I managed to unearth a copy and I am pleased to report that Shelley Long's modified troop leader costume is still wonderful and Jenny Lewis is still cute as a button!
