Parlez-moi d'amour, Taylor.

Below is the really rather beautiful video advertisement for John Galliano's new fragrance, "Parlez-moi d'amour", starring Taylor Momsen:

While I'm on the subject of Taylor, a brief side note: Taylor was absolutely right to argue: "I think women should equally be allowed to pleasure themselves as much as men. I think that if that has any more controversy than a man talking about pleasuring himself, then there's something wrong with the world". Contrary to what the media say, this comment is completely acceptable for a girl of her age because self-experimentation typically starts long before one turns 17. Onanistic habits in young boys are widely accepted, and it should be the same for girls; the issue of whether or not they're of the age of consent, which is the media's main cause for concern, is irrelevant when it comes to self-experimentation.

Top of the list.

All I want for Christmas is this truly luscious set by Mimi Holliday:

New digital camera.

Super-excited today because, after days of delay due to the snowshine, my new digital camera  -  a Samsung ES28  -  has finally arrived (!). However, it's supposed to be a Christmas present from my parents, so I won't be able to use it till the big day, but in the meantime I can lust over the specs and the oh-so pretty colour:

  • 12 megapixel
  • 27mm wide angle lens
  • 5x optical zoom
  • 2.5" LCD screen
Can't wait to take some pictures of my Christmas purchases with this beauty, as well as a plethora of travel shots once I jet off to Vancouver for a few months.

Christmas beauty shoot (& blonde).

Here are a couple of shots from the Christmas beauty shoot I organised for my university's student newspaper:

My friend Ruth Wildman did the photography, I did the make-up / styling, and we both modelled (mainly because we failed to find any models last-minute who could do our limited time slot, whoops).

Also, as the second picture shows, I decided to go blonde a couple of weeks ago. In case anyone wants to try the same, I used two packs of Schwarzkopf Live XXL Color Absolute Platinum and Superdrug Colour Effects Wash-in Wash-out Ash Blonde

Oh, and I'm getting a new digital camera for Christmas, having been without one for a few months now, so expect some pretty pictures of my recent spoils very soon.
