yet another (surprising) use for vaseline

How to grow back your eyebrows using Vaseline

we all know vaseline is the most amazing, multi-purpose, budget-friendly beauty product of all-time. but did you know it can help grow back overplucked eyebrows? mmm hmm!

i was ridiculously tweezer-happy in my teens; photos of me circa the early-noughties are super-scary. for the past couple of years i’ve craved more of a cara delevigne look (obviously, along with the rest of womankind) but i didn’t get far in my re-growth journey ’til i heard that vaseline could spur it on.

it’s simple. you just pop it on your ‘brows every night before you go to bed. i started seeing results within a couple of weeks & you can buy vaseline for less than the price of a hot chocolate to-go (there are some pretty tins out at the mo’ too!). what’s not to love?

Hair AW14: long bob with a fringe (bangs)

since coming to the conclusion that i wanted mid-length hair, having my first decent haircut in years, & massively diminishing my heat styling, my hair decided it was suddenly a good time to start growing. loads & really quickly. the struggle is real, people. so, i’ve gone even shorter!

it’s taking some adjustment, mainly because it’s higher-maintenance than i’m used to – gone are my bedhead days (only amelie can pull off a messy bob). what do you think of my new shortest-it’s-been-since-i-was-4-years-old ‘do?!

p.s. ‘scuse my expression; i’m well aware that i have chronic bitchface but apparently i’m also the worst person in the world at taking selfies. that & lack of decent light do not a good photo make.

my camera collection | vintage kodak

Kodak Brownie Reflex and Cresta 3

i’ve got a bit of a thing for cameras – i have 14 at the moment, up from 12 when i started writing this post – & i love looking at other people’s collections so i thought it’d be fun to share mine over a series.

i’d been looking to add a kodak brownie to the family for a while soΒ i was thrilled to snap this little guy upΒ from ebay for a bargainous Β£2.11! the reflex model was manufactured in the uk between 1946-60 so who knows if it still works but i’m happy if it only ends up an ornament.

my kodak brownie cresta 3 (on the right) was Β£5 from hackney flea & even has a half-used roll of film inside. i’ve taken a couple of photos but haven’t had a roll developed yet. i’ll report back on how any snaps come out! do you collect anything?
