My name is Rosemary, welcome to Lashes & Lattes. I’m twenty-to-thirty-something *clears throat* magazine editor based in Sydney, Australia. Makeup addict, fashion lover, sometime stylist, wanderlusty waif and appreciator of beautiful people and things.
I have a special place in my heart for mascara, eyeliner and any kind of eye makeup. I’m particularly partial to summer, champagne, macarons, flowers, the colour orange, and anything involving sugar (in all its glorious forms). I’m mostly powered by caffeine (skim latte if you don’t mind) and this blog will likely run on raw enthusiasm, OCD and my eternal search for beauty.
I get distracted by shiny things, funny words, online shopping, any talk of eyebrows and will often pull funny faces in the mirror and/or photographs. I love my hair and enjoy any excuse to talk about myself (typical Leo.) I’m often on a detox, health kick or attempting to ‘go granola’ but repeatedly revert to drinking red bull and eating McDonalds cheeseburgers and caramel sundaes because… well, they’re yummy.
I avoid retouching my images where possible, because a) I think we get enough of that from magazines, b) it creates an unrealistic standard of beauty and c) the whole point of this blog is to give accurate representations my experiences with products and services. Sometimes I use photoshop to brighten my images, or remove a pimple. But I don’t significantly alter the appearance or results of any products.
Please ask before you use my images, and if you don’t have time, please at least credit me: Images Rosemary Slade http://www.lashesandlattes.com Thanks!
