Remember me anyone?

I've started a whole new beauty blog, and I would love to have those of you who remember The Sparkly Poo to come join me! It'd be lovely to have you on board.


See you at Hoozdoo Beauty!

Hi everyone.
Sadly, I've decided to stop posting now. I've grown out of the beauty scene, and I realised that I don't have anything valuable to contribute to the beauty sphere anymore.
I enjoyed writing this blog, and thank you to all those who read it. I'll be keeping it up, purely for the LOL's.

Sparkly Bites: Penchant for High Button Up Shirts

Since I'm a geek, I might as well embrace it, eh?
It's so Carey Mulligan it hurts, but I'm officially converted. Finally! A trend I'm not ashamed to have succumbed to.

I'm still proud, however, for not purchasing a poncho when 95% of the female population was sporting them back in the good days of 2k3. What a poisonous garment that was!

What Up? (8.0)

Spot the difference?

Sorry about my lack of posts lately. I guess I've been busy - doing what, I'm not sure.
  • I've really got into the Tumblr hype. Sadly, I will never show anyone my Tumblr, because it would be far too mortifying - I guess some things are better kept underwraps.
  • Loving the fact that I wake up to daylight, rather than pitch darkness as was custom during the winter season. The practically summer-esque weather went down a storm as well.
  • I've got stuck in a bit of a make-up rut. No longer am I trying out different combinations, plastering all sorts of colours all over my face and following the latest trends. Basically, if its not neutral, I'm not interested. I've always blasted those who rest cosily in the safe-zone...pot/kettle - ya get the idea.
  • I also need to change shampoo.
  • I think I've decided - I'm a black woman trapped in a white woman's body.
  • And I have to go to work now, so BYE.

Primark Purchases!

Oh, I do love you Primark...
Found this shirt by a complete fluke, but as soon as I saw it, I was just like "I'm gettin' it!". Thus, I did.

Awwww...they're soldiers!SOLDIERS!

This is a really cute dress, and it looks amazing on. It's really short though, which is no problem for me!

This shirt is so 'grandma chic'! I've wanted a shirt like this for ages, I'm a happy bunny.

I'm really happy with all my buys! Primark is my new love...

The Oscars 2011 Outfit Review

It's here, it happened! Sadly, I didn't get to watch the best ceremony ever, as I was far too tired to stay up till 5am in the morning. But catching up on the outfits, I can tell it was a star-studded, amazing night.
Here's my picks :)

The winners:I loved Reese Witherspoon's simple 60's get-up.Not the most classic dress, but I do think Scarlett Johansson looks hot!The matte dress makes a comeback, here worn by Jennifer Lawrence. It's easy to impress me. Really, just wear any sort of cream colour. Halle Berry knew what she was doing, obviously.
Mila Kunis looks so stunning and erethral in this dress.Hailee Steinfield made her first ever strut down the Red Carpet, but she looked like a princess doing it.
Not many people could handle such a short hemline for the Oscars (even if it was only the Vanity Fair after-party). Nonetheless, I think Taylor Swift looked divine.
This is the epitome of class. I love it, Kate Beckinsale!
Magpies had a field day with this amazing creation. For me, the best of Anne Hathaway's numerous costume changes.


Cate Blanchett proves that as far as originalty, grace and beauty is concerned, she still comes up trumps. YES, Cate!

The Losers:
Sharon Stone! That dress?! That make-up?! You disgrace me!
Melissa Leo may have walked away an Oscar in hand, but she won't be getting a nod from me for this downright awkward choice.
Since when has Jennifer Hudson been this skinny? I don't like it one bit. And the dress is a no-no also...
Marisa Tomei looks frumpy and drowned in fabric thanks to this uncouth garment.
I'm not sure who exactly Cody Horn is, but she's not gaining any recognition in my style books!
It's ok Cameron Diaz, a lot of people don't like to admit they're blatantly over the hill! Yes, that was mean, but so is this shiny, leopard print, paaaainfully short dress.

Who shone at the Oscars for you?

My New Brogues

I've been stuck wearing my River Island Male Section boots the whole winter, and while I do love them, I feel like it's time to switch to something a little bit more light. So when I saw that brogues were now the new 'in' thing, I instantly snapped some up.

I found these on the New Look website, but I wasn't sure. Were they gonna look 'legit'? Feeling somewhat confident and wanting to spend some of my hard-earned cash, I took the plunge. And heeeere they are!
Aren't they beautiful?
These will take me through spring nicely. They're a bit small, but I'm sure I'll wear them in. Plus, the lining is floral and adorable! SO CUSHE!
The New Look website ordering and delivery was a breeze as well.

What shoes willbe taking you through spring?
