Hello Poshville

Yes people, you are in Poshville. After months of planning and editing I've finally decided the layout of my blog.

Her Royal Poshness is supposed to be a representation of the ideal woman. Every woman is a royal poshness deep down. OK maybe in some it is a bit deeper down but it's still there.

Make-up is my thing but it's not my only passion. A woman's life incorporates many things. Beauty can be created on the outside but true beauty radiates outwards from within. It reflects a balance between internal forces and external factors. Afterall at the end of the day when all is done and dusted, all the make-up is washed off and all the drama is irrelevant, when you look in the mirror, all that is left is the true you. What do you see? a few black heads? Lies? deceit? confusion? or do you see beauty? happiness? self-content? This is what truly matters...

I don't want Poshville to be just another beauty blog. It is intended to be a kind of peace haven. For me the writer, it definitely is because I can pour my thoughts.
For you the reader, it should be just the same. Surely you will digest whatever you read being the intelligent creatures you are and you will agree/ disagree with what I think/say/do and find a way to express it.

So what should you expect from Poshville?

Well, the short and perfect answer is a bit more.

Happy Blogging...

3 Column blog

OK I've been getting people asking me how I did my blog. You have to understand something about HTML to be able to fully edit your blog.

But here's how you make your blog 3-column instead of 2 in Minima blog style (the commonest one). This is the easiest explanation I could find because even though I can do it, I'm not sure I can explain it properly. Kudos to the guy who wrote it.


Obviously my blog is a lot more complex than that but let me know how you get on. I'm happy to answer any questions about it or anything my limited HTML knowledge can handle :)

Happy inventing...

New Obsession

So now that I'm over Hello Kitty, I have a new obsession...

I'm so gonna play with this collection! It's just absolutely gorgeous and perfect for the coloured skin tone. Even though I'm not a M.A.C fan, I'm looking forward to this- I'm even getting goosebumps in anticipation.

Do y'all know the best part?

Drum Rolling..................

It's gonna be released on my birthday- May 28th! and there are 23 items in the collection- isn't that just awesome?! Woo hoo!

So here is my wish list already:

The entire collection costs just a meagre $314!!! (excluding the nails colours cos I don't do nails) but since I'm in UK, the collection won't be here till the end of June :(

All you M.A.C pro members get 40% off so it's not much at all. I shall be expecting...or else I'm gonna have to snipe some bloggie-made friends...

M.A.C Hello Kitty Wild

M.A.C Hello Kitty collection was launched yesterday in UK. I know all you Americans are gonna say we are far behind, but we always are when it comes to these things!

Anyway, I saw the email from M.A.C last night and thought I'll go to the store today after uni and see the collection then order it online if necessary. By the time I got to the only store in Leeds stocking it- it was sold out! To complicate my situation, the entire Hello Kitty Wild collection is sold out online too!!! In less than 24hrs!!!

Ish man..not fair on those of us who have to go to uni. I was really looking forward to messing about with it...

Professional Ugly Credit Crunch

Professional Beauty London was fun and the setting was nice but it was the scantiest I've ever known it to be. The credit crunch is really biting hard at the industry.

I spent most of my time collecting details of contract manufacturers and suppliers and parading about the mineral make up stands. I am in love with mineral make-up especially Jane Iredale and I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting her today and guess what?! She looked human!

OK I know you think I'm losing it but for me this was a big thing. I met someone who has done it before and she felt real. It means that I can do it too and I'm so inspired by her vision as she's not even a make-up artist! I also met up with the JI team and learned a lot of tips here and there. A MUA is never perfect you know, we always strive to improve.

(Very good tattoo camouflage going on here. All images are clickable)

I went over to bare escentuals (i.d.) and I didn't really like it- I was especially annoyed that I could not buy anything because they won't sell at the show. What a dumb thing to do at an exhibition! I however saw very lovely shimmery blue and lime green eye colours that I'm gonna be investing in.

I know I'm gonna enjoy mineral make-up because the colours are so intense (no talc!) so a little goes a long way and it does not wear off- it's gonna last me ages (which means more ££££!) but the proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the eating so I'm gonna try them out and put up photos of my work and you can be the judge.

This is the entire JI colection. I'm really in love with the 24K gold dust!

All the bases, 4-in-1 (concealer, foundation, spf, powder) or 3-in-1

The eye colours
24K gold dust!
I told Jane that I would really like a sky/icy blue one and she said she would make it. I'm really excited and looking forward to an icon releasing a product I requested. that'll be the day!

I was also totally inspired to add beauty therapy to my list of trades today. If anything the equipments are so sleek, but the real reason- that thing is a £-spinner.

I know what you thinking- I love money...Yeah I do! If I'm gonna expend my talent making people look good then they should do their part and make my bank account look good. So I might just find myself doing facials and waxing, as well as airbrushing and mineral make-up. How exciting!

Ugly credit crunch, be gone!!!

Where does medical education fit into all of this? I am still wondering myself. Sigh...
