"You know, I bet you're a real yo-yo!"

So this is my first ever blogger post, so bear with me if it's not up to standard.

On the weekend it was a dear friend of mine's birthday party, and she had the amazing idea of  making it "retro" theme. My partner decided he would go as James Dean to my 50's honey. My house mate is a big fan of the 50's/ vintage look and she was kind enough to give me one of her Hell Bunny dresses! She did my hair and make up as well, I felt like a real life Barbie Doll. 
Our inspiration for the night:

James Dean and Natalie Wood in Rebel Without a Cause 



Dress- Hell Bunny
Hair and makeup: Harlow Hair and Make Up 






It won't be the last of my pretty make-overs. Harlow is an extremely talented hair and make up artist and is working on her portfolio, and I'm her in house model! So keep your eyes peeled for more of her amazing work. You can find her HERE.
Adorably, a friend of mine decided that she would draw me because she loved this photo shoot so much, amazing isn't it!?
That's all for now lovelies, comment and subscribe! xx
