Vintage Hair at Lemon Popsicle Fair

I am delighted to be attending the Lemon Popsicle Fair on Saturday the 18th of June, however I'm actually going to be selling more than my wares! I've volunteered to Jazz up the hair do's of the fabulous ladies of Falmouth, to raise money for Age Concern. I'm going to concentrate on 'Victory Rolls', a 40's vintage hair style, they look absolutely fabulous and are one of my favourite hair styles. I'm also going to do a little instruction sheet, which people can then take home and use to try the style out for themselves at home. So, I now need to get practicing before the big event! So if you fancy some curls from Miss Curly Pearl, send me a message at or simply turn up on the day! 

I did victory rolls in my hair for a Jumble sale I organised in March.

Timeless Beauty, Betty Grable with her fabulous, glamorous style! Great Hair do!

Posing as a Pin Up!

I am so pleased, I have finally got my hands on the photos of Dr Sketchy's last month. My friend runs the event locally in Falmouth (which is a mix of cabaret and life drawing) and as it was her last show (and shed had some drop outs) she persuaded me to do a bit of posing, so with my duster and iron at the ready I got up on stage and posed as a 50's housewife! I even managed to blag my boyfriend in to posing, but he would kill me if I posted the pic's, let's just say he consumed a lot of vodka and wore a hard hat and held a hammer, bless him! I really enjoyed it and was proud that we both actually got up there, I even got my red polka dot bikini top out! I luckily also managed to get a copy of one of the sketchers drawings (a very talented fashion student)- such fun, but think that's my modeling career over and done with! Back to the day job.

A St Ives Treat

Well, I haven't blogged for a week or so as I've had the most horrible cold! I'm sure there are quite a few of us out there who have been suffering, but luckily I'm starting to feel a bit more like my old self and I thought I'd get back on the blogging horse. It was my boyfriends mum's birthday on Monday, so off we went to St Ives for the day, one of my favourite places to visit in Cornwall (and luckily it was quite quiet!). We went for some yummy lunch an then took a visit to one of my favourite shops, Cath Kidston. I managed to find the cheapest thing in the shop, buttons!! There are sooo cute and I'm going to try and use them this month on a crafty project.

Even the bag they came in was really cute!

A Postcard I picked up from a Gallery, if you've been to / or live in Cornwall, then you would of experienced this! Well I feel a lot better for doing this little blog and will get my craft on soon, love Miss Curly Pearl x
