Today as I was searching the book shelves at home I came across a tattered spine (well lack of a spine really) that I recognised. This book was my fashion, jewellery, make up and hair bible until I was about 13. I must have spent hundreds of hours sitting studying the instructions on how to draw, what materials to use, and learning the difference between a shawl collar and a sailors collar.
tattered books are always the best.
I think my mom defiantly got her 15p's worth.
I get both pain and pleasure from how 80's the book is.
I used to sit for hours doing my make up like this, I never really got the concept
of blending though so I would always end up looking like a clown.
my nan taught me how to make pom poms so I could
make the pin in this picture. I think it fell apart the next day
because I hadnt done the knots properly.
my favorite quote from this book has to be :
egg shampoo1) vigorously beat together the white and yoke of one egg in a mixing bowl2) massage the mixture thoroughly into dry unwashed hair and leave for about five minutes3) rinse your hair in COOL water: the egg is likely to scramble if the water is too hot.
I can totally imagine a teenager on a 80's / 90's TV show doing that and ending up with scrambled egg hair.
