How to get soft Skin like Annie May in carefree and consequence (Essentially my regime)

What you’ll need

A warm flannel soaked with face wash (I love using Chien by Lidl.)

E45 cream

Marc Jacobs body lotion

Hydrocortisone Cream

A paper face mask if you want (I use the Korean herbal ones on Amazon)

Razor

Femfresh

Body scrub

Clippers

How To:

Have a steaming hot shower using a good body scrub to freshen you up. Steam is very good at opening up your pores.

Make sure you take care of any eyebrow and ‘garden maintenance’ if this a special night. ☺️

Shave legs from ankle to knee – pay no attention to the adverts with smooth thighs (it’s all airbrush)

Shave arms and applying a cream like deodorant such as Mitchum

Scrub your feet with a pumas stone – clip toe nails and finger nails.

Now on to your face

Firstly always use a fresh flannel (even when you wash it after using it, it can still harbour germs.) Apply some warm water and throughly lather the face wash. When washing focus on your T Zones.

Next apply a thick layer of hydrocortisone cream around your cheeks and sides of your face in a circular motion. Apply to any other dry areas such as the forehead or bridge of your nose. Let it soak in for 20 minutes.

Cover your body in E45 cream, giving extra attention to sensitive areas if just been shaved. Focus on hands, elbows and heels – non scented is kinder to skin. Wipe off any excess hydrocortisone cream and swipe a little moisture under under the eyes and under your nose and Cupid’s bow to act as a natural highlighter.

Apply lip balm (I love a tinted one)

Then slather yourself in Marc Jacobs body lotion – apply face mask in the evening for 20 minutes and go to bed feeling spa like pampered.

TIP: A good makeup primer is essential; I recommend MUA hydro gel and a good and Ganier Water

Check out my vintage inspiration in my last fashion post

  • “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” – Marilyn Monroe.

  • “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different” – Coco Chanel.

  • “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades” – Audrey Hepburn.

  • Glow up Friday

    So this you can see the difference right? This is my no #makeup look. It covers all my dry skin and rosacea and bags under my eyes – this was done By using a @katemossagency lipstick in light peach. Two swipes under the eyes and any other spots then use it to define your eyebrow shape.

    Then by using a peach eyeshadow I gave myself a hint of blush.

    Products used @barrymcosmetics Matt foundation in ivory. @plouise_makeup_academy hint of gold for my eye lids then a light brown on my eyebrows (coral pallet #makeupacademy powder in ivory. Mascara is from @rimmellondonuk and I use a @nivea_uk lip balm before applying ’Pink in the Afternoon’ lipstick’ by @rimmellondonuk. Face wash @lidluk and @tesco sensitive skin moisturizing wipes, but Dress and shrug from @cerys_closet

    Cannot wait to get my hair dons tomorrow, hopefully I can fit in an eyebrow wax and French manicure

    Act cool, look cool, be cool. Til’ death do us part, think Pink! – Pink Lady pledge

    Pink lady rules

    Rule 1: Obey the Pink Lady Pledge: Act cool, look cool, be cool. Til’ death do us part, think Pink!

    Rule 2: At no time is a Pink Lady to become romantically involved with a non-T-Bird member. Restriction is rescinded only after graduation from school or expulsion. A Pink Lady will not date a: Jock, nerd, Preppie, anybody non-cool, or member of a rival school or gang. T-Birds, not Nerds!

    Rule 3: The Pink Lady jacket symbolizes that the wearer is the girlfriend / consort of a T-Bird member. Upon leaving the Pink Ladies under duress (violation of rules 1 and 2, expulsion, illness, death, school transfer) or personal choice, wearer must return the jacket to the T-Birds to avoid damaging said T-Birds’ reputations. `They got a Rep to protect’. Rep is everything.

    Rule 4: A Pink Lady must present herself in appropriate attire at school at all times – Pink Lady jacket a must! Flashy, seductive costumes are not allowed, as they allow non-T-Bird students (and other males, staff included) to see what is for T-Bird eyes only. Seductive attire appropriate only to be worn at functions if accompanied by their T-Bird escort / boyfriend.

    Rule 5: A Pink Lady is to have a cigarette and matches / lighter on her at all times, for herself – cigarette equals `cool’ – plus her fellow Pink Ladies and T-Birds (and favored Rydell staff) who might perchance wish to bum a smoke.

    Rule 6: No Pink Lady is allowed to interfere with other Pink Lady to T-Bird relationships. If the leader of the T-Birds is spoken for, unattached Pink Lady is not permitted to trespass on fellow Pink Lady relationship. If the leader of the T-Birds is available (Pink Lady girlfriend leaves – see rule #3), unattached Pink Lady may make advances on unclaimed T-Bird leader. See rule #4, apply it. The prettier the Pink Lady, the more interested the unattached T-Bird will be.

    Rule 7: Returning to Rule #2, Fraternization outside of T-Birds, if all members of the T-Birds are accounted for – have Pink Lady girlfriends – unattached Pink Lady must remain single. Addendum: If unattached Pink Lady has interest in non-T-Bird student, and wishes to pursue relationship with said student, see rule #3.

    Rule 8. Contrary to popular belief, (see Rydell school year 1958-1959 (Grease), Premarital `coupling’ (Sliding into home base – thank you, Louis DiMucci) isn’t a requirement for being a Pink Lady. Just don’t die a virgin or die wearing your mother’s underwear.

    Rule 9: If you’re a non-romantic friend of the Pink Ladies, you’re a friend for life. Friendship (non-fraternizational) may include nerd/brainiac (good for assistance with essays), and jock. NOT allowed: Gossip Girls (Patty Simcox), or annoying cheerleaders (Stacie & Gracie).

    ADDITIONAL – Added June 16, 1962 If unattached Pink Lady meets and falls for former-nerd-turned-badass-biker, who saved the butts of T-Birds and Rydell students, fraternization rules rescinded!! (Co-signed by Johnny, Goose, Louis, Davey, Stephanie, Sharon, Paulette, Rhonda, Dolores).

    I LOVE THIS APP, SHOPLOOK is the NEW Polyvore! For somebody who has a disability this app is great because I don’t need to take photos of myself and change into copious outfits have which would be really difficult to me due to my dexterity and I would have to ask for help dressing. With this app because I can create looks for you and I’m not wasting energy.

    I totally recommend this for fashion bloggers especially if you have a disability and it’s hard to dress yourself or go shopping or numerous outfits.
