The Flash! Nails with Dead Set Babes Decals

The first episode of the new series of The Flash was on TV a couple of weeks ago!  Altho not a huge Comic book fan, Flash Gordon and The Flash are my favourites.  So when Dead Set Babes started selling Lightning decals.....I knew I had to purchase them immediately.

The base is Color Club Almost Famous, Red is OPI's Over and Over a-Gwen, ring finger is Dead Set Babes Zap Bang Pow glitter and middle finger glitter is Sally Hansen's Cha Ching.

A Long Weekend Snagging Thrifty Bargains!

Recently we holiday'd at the beach....beach in Winter makes for lots of vintage hunting...cause you can't go to the beach.  So we found some goodies!

A plethora of kitschy crap!  Including puppies on leashes, Cat biscuit barrels, creepy clown shakers and squirrels!

1930's Japan ugly face tea set, minus a few pieces.

A massive West German pottery floor vase in gorgeous drip glaze colors.  I am so in love with German 60's pottery, especially the bold color pieces.

A job lot of 50's Nally Ware harlequin canisters I purchased to sell I have enough of my own.

And this may just look like a pink bowl, but it's a 1940's Sunbeam mixer bowl for the pink mixer.  These bowls sell for big money with one recently going for $140 on eBay.  I snagged this one for $10 in an Op Shop.

What bargains have you guys snagged??

Suavecita Pomade For Ladies....and Wolverines

 Suavecita Pomade recently sent me a tub of their pomade to test drive.  It was a little exciting, yet daunting, as I am not a pomade 'person'.  This is due to not really knowing how it's used as opposed to spraying the crap out of my hairstyle with hairspray.
The opportunity came along with Miss 13 wanting to dress as Wolverine to last weekend's Melbourne Comic Con.  She wanted super high Victory Rolls to simulate Logan's swept back hairdo.
Pretty cool hey?
To get this look I first crimped her hair the night before with a 'fine crimp' crimper.  This gets the hair super thick which gets us the volume we need to sweep the hair up.  Bu the next morning her hair had lost a lot of it's volume (doh!) but there was still enough to achieve a roll.
I sectioned her hair down the middle and swept each side up, rolling as I went down the hair and securing with bobby pins.  Both sections met in the middle at the back of the head in a V shape.

This is where Suavecita pomade came to the test! 

At first opening, Miss 13 said it smelt really nice.  The texture is quite sticky immediately, and even after smoothing a glob of it around my fingers for awhile, I knew this pomade was going to hold any these rolls and any stray hairs in place.  I swept the product up, over and along each of the rolls, right to the end to secure their shape.  I then took a smaller second glob, smoothed it in my hands, then rang my hands up and over both rolls again to secure any stray hairs I missed the first time.

I thought pomade would make my hair look stiff but as you can see, the pomade didn't make Miss 13's hair look stiff at all.  Her hair was secure without looking wet and gel like.  She was at Comic Con for 10 hours and it held up the whole time!

So my first foray in the pomade world wasn't too scary after all.  I was quite impressed with the product.  The smell was nice, it was a pretty pink color and not an icky brown, you only need a very small glob so this tub will last forever and it held hair in place without looking like gel.

Miss 13 thought she looked pretty good.

Suavecita Pomade has it's own website selling products for men and women of all ages.  The pomade I reviewed retails for $11.99 USD.  They can also be found on Facebook and on Instagram.

Does anybody use Suavecito and what do you think?
