What is it about the first sunbeams of Spring and the dawns of a new season, that has us ransacking our wardrobes and throwing out non Pinterest worthy pieces in bid to create that instaglam wardrobe that makes you standout in a crowd.
Ask any make-up artist and they’ll tell you − a well proportioned, defined eyebrow will take you far in this world. But for those who aren’t naturally blessed, or who like me did a fair amount of damage in the late 90s akin to the deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, there can be issues.
Recently, and really quite out of the blue, I’ve been considering getting my helix pierced − that’s the outside edge of the earlobe to the uninitiated, not to be confused with the ‘conch’ or ‘daith’ (google them).
To put this in some context, I am, so far, devoid of all piercings bar two grown-over holes I had punched into my lower lobes at local jewellers shop ‘Michelle’s’ circa age 14 − to date, the smell of surgical spirit still gives me the shivers.
This feature could also be called ‘What to wear when you’re so sick of your winter coat you could actually scream.” It might not *technically* be any warmer than it was last week, but Sunday was the first official day of Spring, so in order to justify some new season shopping, I’m rolling with it.
Have you reached peak trainer yet? If you’re anything like me (busy, tired, yet somehow still have the vague desire to look slightly stylish even in the face of new baby-sleep deprivation and daily school-run drama’s) your answer is probably no.
