Hello Boys...

You all remember this WonderBra campaign right?

The advert showed the stunning model, Eva Herzigov√°, looking down at her curves and her breasts. Now, if you read about her on Wikipedia etc, all it will say is the usual - who she married, who she is, where she is now.

What it won't tell you is this:

Yep, that's the same woman. Now, I know model culture promotes the joys of being thin, but seeing as she had such an amazing, and famous campaign being the curvy size she was...well...what the hell happened?

Maybe it shows how model society has changed, since 1994 when this advertisement was launched, to now. Via this path, we have encountered "Heroin Chic" (yes its a real thing - jutting bones and dark circles), thanks to the over hyped Kate Moss. Eva was a role model in the early 1990's, and now she has just succumbed to the model life of being insanely skinny. And I understand that some girls are naturally a UK size 2/4/6 etc, but as we can see from 1994 - this is not Eva's natural state.

Getting the one year itch....

For another tattoo. I've always wanted a sugar/candy skull. But I love love love Sylvia Ji's paintings:

I want it! She's so beautiful, and by far my favourite. I also want a locket, in the shape of an old school gypsy head (like Valerie Vargas' work), lace pattern, a cameo, cherries...oh there's so many!! Lots of old school style stuff really.

German bosses can now order women to wear bras to work

German bosses can now order women to wear bras to work, after a court ruling in North Rhine-Westphalia on Wednesday 12th January.

But they should be flesh or white coloured only – as bright colours may ‘shine through.’

The State Labour Court in North Rhine-Westphalia made the ruling during a case involving the dress and grooming habits of airport security personnel, but its decisions will apply to all workplaces in the most populous German state.

The ruling wasn’t a complete victory for bosses though – while the length of a female employee’s fingernails can be determined by her immediate superiors, companies do not have the right to ban certain shades of nail polish.

And while they can ensure hair is clean and groomed and order male employees to keep their beard in check, wigs – banned under the airport security personnel’s rulebook – can still be worn.

Who said the German government was controlling?! Too soon? :)

Best website EVER


Woops I spent more money Haul!

Well... I can justify this. All the H&M dresses were £7 each, so £21 for all 3 dresses. Also, most of them were down from £25-30. So BARGAIN! The Mela Loves London dress was £5 (down from £24.99) and I used my New Look vouchers. So four dresses for £21 reaaaally. Anyway, here are the pictures:(click on them to make them bigger!)

Vintage style Cream lace dress (can be worn either way, but the exposed zip is techincally the front)

Again, this dress can be worn either way. Zip way is the front though. Not something I would usually go for. But it was cheap and looks nice on :)

Black lace skater dress, exposed zip at back this time, but again can probably wear it either way. Crap photos, my phone doesnt like black!

Mela loves london Russian Doll Wool dress:

How cute are the russian dolls?!
