Kitty, Pink & 80's Love

I hated yesterday's post.  Please pretend it never happened.  Woe is me, yadda yadda yadda.  Blah blah, yuck!  Let's talk about today, the sun was out, yay!  And I finally put this up in my bathroom

I love Hello Kitty, always will.  I loved it long before the 5 year olds of today and will probably love it long after they've moved on.  It was an Ebay purchase.  All the way from Hong Kong as bafflingly, nowhere in Britain does there exist an outlet that sells Hello Kitty shower curtains.  What's up with that?!

It put me in a pink mood

Went all English rose with No 17 pink glitter eyeshadow, Benefit Benetint stain and Vaseline Rosy Lips.

Pink tights and pink beads on my pink bathroom rug

Too much pink?

Don't forget pink flamingos.

I actually felt a bit eightiestastic in this get up.  I think it was the sheer number of colours I mixed together.  And with the addition of this bag to pop out to shops with...

... it kind of sealed the deal.  I don't mind though.  I'm an 80's kid through and through!

Skirt, top, beads & bag - Charity Shop

Bird brooches - Acorn & Will & Primark

Purple t-bars - Ebay

Last time I did an outfit post in my bathroom, a few of you lovely readers were very complimentary about it and expressed an interest in seeing more, so I thought I'd spoil you...

You can never have too many rolls

More Hello Kitty, just because.

Hope you enjoyed a teeny peek inside my home. 

Why not enjoy one of the best 'eighties' songs ever before you go

  1. LOL! You don't like the '80s much, do you? :)

  2. Yesterday's post was fine, you're allowed to say if you feel a bit shit.
    Love your look, you have a wonderful collection of coloured tights and shoes which you put together with great style. And I think I may have a case of (birdy) brooch envy...
    What a pretty, colourful bathroom - perfect for a photo shoot! xxxx

  3. Your bathroom has loads of personality! Loving your idea for towel storage.Rx

  4. awesome post... all those colours make me happy. ;)

  5. Eightiestastic indeed, and sod off dictionary with your red underline for not recognising 'eightiestastic' as a word.

    Please, please, please will you come and give my hideous bathroom a makeover so it looks like yours?

    I cannot resist an eighties charity shop purchase, even though most things end up languishing in m wardrobe.I'm determined to slim down so I can fir into one outfit I have in mind for summer though. Some eighties curs are so unforgiving on the belly and hips, aren't they?

    Love the bag and pinkness - yay.

  6. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAah Lucy you look sooo brilliant! You are the queen of accessories! Cute brooches (by the way you inspired me today and yesterday to wear brooches on my cardie! I wore an Alice one yesterday and today, a sparkly bird!) and such brilliant colours! Your house is amazing by the way!
