She never says no. :-)
so I guess that helped.
It's the lottery of genetics I guess.
She's the one to blame for my make-up addiction.
I always remember sitting at her rustic dressing table and playing with all her make up!
Even though she was mainly a one or two eyeshadow colour lady..typically blue or green she also had masses of expensive palettes which we were not allowed to touch.
Mmm she wished! :-P
She would also follow fashion trends and she would know what the next "it" thing was but she would also have her own style which on occasion embarrassed us when she went to the school gate to pick us up. I'm sure we all had that. I now understand it! She had a different style from the other mums...maybe she even set trends..who knows.
Whenever she was around when we were about to go out she would encourage us to use make-up and dress nicely and she would supply me with some super fine glitter from her workshop (she's an artist/ interior decorator) so I would put a bit on my eyes as an eyeliner mixed with a bit of glue.
And we're talking about maybe 15 years ago!
Do you get it now? She's the one to blame big time!
However, after all those years of glamour she then decided it was time to go back to her roots (apparently there is some kind of Native South American Aborigine blood in the family) and she became a bit of a hippie.
She even smokes a pipe! Yep...that's mum.
This is her living room:
I also love it there because she doesn't have internet so you just connect with nature.
And for reference so that you can see if we look similar or not..
These are my two sists.
I love them to bits and we are all very close!
And the three of us with mum:
Who do you think is the most similar to our mum?
