About

Sunday, January 18, 2015

who: LaaLaa, Laa. Whichever.

what: Make-up artist, writer & amateur photographer.

where: United Kingdom.

why: My blog started in October 2008 as an outlet for my new found love of beauty and to also touch on personal aspects of my life, such as my battle with depression & anxiety. I'm also a professional trained make-up artist graduating from AOFM in Soho. It's about showing a lifestyle that some may lead and others don't understand but get a glimpse inside it. Things are beautiful as we see it, not as how others say or feel they should be. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. Anything we look at we can see more of a beauty in it, if we choose to do so. Don't limit the brain or visualisation we are blessed with.

how: Living, writing, inspiring, capturing, speaking from the heart and through my eyes.

type: ESFJ.

sign: Taurus sun, Libra moon, Sagittarius rising.



Your eclectic grunge, 88 baby, 90's pistol whipping daisy!
I have 9 furbabies, 8 rabbits and 1 cat being such an animal lover encouraged me to become a vegetarian. I try my best to be ethical when possible. Everything is hard at the start until you get use to it. Over the years my blog has evolved after winning the 2012 Cosmopolitan Magazine Blog Awards for Best Established Beauty Blog (thank you!) but I felt the blog lost the reason as to why it was voted to win to begin with afterwards. I had to take a step back and remember that this blog is my own space and I want to show more of me to my readers. Besides my love of beauty and my anatomy, I'm not that stereotypical girlie girl. My style palette consists of black, grey, white and nude pink. I have more shoes stored away than I know what to do with, preferring to live in trainers. Statement bold lips & curly hair. Striving to be the best woman I could be.

        Quotes

      • · “We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.” ― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


      • · “Vivere senza rimpianti"


      • · “I am not a little bit of many things; but I am the sufficient representation of many things. I am not an incompletion of all these races; but I am a masterpiece of the prolific. I am an entirety, I am not a lack of anything; rather I am a whole of many things. God did not see it needful to make me generic. He thinks I am better than that.” ― C. JoyBell C.
