Be a Mexican, Not a Mexican't!

Please be very, very careful when reading out that post title.

Three of my close friends have birthdays only a week apart, so naturally every year there is triple-the-fun shindig in their honour.

This year, the three amigos decided to (quite logically) choose the theme of the party to be Mexican.

Naturally, my first thought was this costume-

Buy one here. Seriously, live my dream and do it.
Billasaurus, however patient the man is, drew a line at the taco suit. I got it in my head that there was no point in going alone as a taco, because really, who ever just has one taco? Unfortunately he wasn't so keen, and considering ive forced him to dress as the worlds tallest Gremlin before, I figure I'm still ahead.

So instead I went as Frida Kahlo!

I appear to have missed a little something during my last plucking session

The real and magnificent Frida herself-

I love the vibrant colours she used in her self-portraits, and her style. I think its pretty badass too not to pluck your monobrow and 'stache too- why should women feel ashamed of something that is quite normal? What percentage of men actually give a fuck? Definitely not the majority.

That being said, I shall continue to wax and pluck but admire the hell out of people who don't give a fuck.

The night began with pre-drinks at my tiny little flat (single file only, standing room but plenty of booze) drinking simply put, the beverage of The Gods.

Let me share with you this complicated recipe. Don't worry about a pen, I think you'll be able to recall it.

I'm not joking- it tastes like magic and unicorns! To be more specific, it tastes just like the clear gummi bears! Where has this been all of my life?!

My skills with eye pencil drawing monobrows must be my hidden talent, because all night men were whispering and giggling in my direction. It was quite disconcerting, because I forgot that this little gem was painted upon my face. To be honest most of the time I was thinking, 'GOSH I KNOW IM NOT A PRETTY GIRL, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO FLAT OUT LAUGH IN MY FACE!!!'

Der. They were looking at the giant fuzzy caterpillar perched atop my brow.

It was actually quite the conversation starter, and there was one gentleman (I use this term loosely) who was obsessed with stroking my monobrow even though there was no actual hair there, and offered for me to stay the night at his residence.

I got the impression he wasn't keen on my despite the brow, but BECAUSE of it. Different strokes for different folks, hey?


  1. hahaha I giggled out loud at this post! you look fantastic! love your costume, and that drink sounds absolutely delicious! x

    1. Thanks Rachel! You might have to give it a trial run! All in the name of research, of course.

  2. Haha what a good outfit idea! I used to have a moustache like that... I bleached it up til like year 12 when I realised I can actually wax it...have not looked back since! haha

    Interesting alcohol combination! I def have to try that one!

    1. Bahaha. I had a shocker too, but I seemed to think I was the only one who could see it -_-

  3. That is an awesome costume! You look really hot:)

    1. Thankyou! We all can't be burlesque hotties, but my speciality is drawn on facial hair.

  4. hahahahahahaha, i love it! Almost better than the taco!

  5. Hahaha I love the title! And it sounds like you had a hilarious night. Speaking of alcohol that tastes like gummi bears, I think there's this one called Sour Apple Monkey or something similar? It's bright green and mixed with something or other (I had it once at a party a couple of years ago and as you might be able to tell from my fabulous memory, I wasn't that well-behaved haha) it tastes JUST. LIKE. GUMMI BEARS. ALL OF THEM. I mixed it with something very non-lethal like soft drink.

    1. Im sold on this Sour Apple Monkey, but the fact I hadnt heard of it makes me feel sooo old. Tell me about the young whippersnappers, Joan.

    1. Thank-you very much! Might not be a great idea to work the monobrow into my daily routine though.
