M.A.C Marilyn Monroe Collection

Ladies, say hello to what could possible be my all time favourite M.A.C collection.

 The M·A·C Marilyn Monroe is a colour collection that channels the legend’s lustre and sex appeal in shades and formulas synonymous with the star.

Lipsticks in rapturous reds (£15.50), gleaming Dazzleglass (£18.50), a dramatic 35 Lash (£10), False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara (£18.50) and Eye Shadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones (£16.50) provide some silver-screen allure for us average lasses. 

 Nail Lacquers (£11) destined to be a girl’s best friend and a Beauty Powder in sheer pale peach (£23) evoke that flawless Marilyn look.

 The M.A.C Marilyn Monroe Collection is available for a limited time online only from October 2012.

Go For It Gaga!

Go for it Gaga!

Lady Gaga has been getting a hell of a lot of stick in the press recently about her alleged weight gain.

Since unflattering photos of her were posted all over the internet, it seems everyone has something to say about Gaga’s  body, and not much of it is nice.

Today, Gaga had something to say back.

The below is in response to thousands of her Little Monsters who begun to post images of themselves on her littlemonsters website under the heading Gaga created in response to her critics called:

  “Be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities.”


Your Bravery

I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days.    Gratitude mostly. Seeing you post photos of things on your bodies and in your minds that you feel society tells you you should be ashamed of. 

You are showing them you have no shame. You are brave, strong, and accepting not only of yourself, but of others through your experiences. You are proud to be born this way, and brave in your vulnerability with this community. Watching you all create a safe space online for people to be compassionate is the greatest gift you could ever give me. 

My weight/loss/gain since i was child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have. My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when i eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I'm happy. Happier then I've ever been. i am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. 

This is who I am. And I am proud at any size. And i love you, and want you to be proud in any form you may take as well. Please don't look for kindness in critics, go  here you know the gold is. Here, in our hearts.


She then posted these images of herself, stripped bare (literally)

The captions are her own.
Bulimia & Anorexia since I was 15

But today I join the Body Revolution

To Inspire Bravery

And BREED some m$therf*cking COMPASSION

While I sometimes question her motives, I’d like to say well done Gaga for hi-lighting to your millions of young and impressionable fans that there is no such thing as perfect and that we should embrace and love ourselves regardless of the way we look. 

It’s really not what matters.
