Yes, I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight,

and see the dawn before the rest of the world. ~Oscar Wilde~

Insanely Beautiful

Mum!








My Mum and sister (see post above) were going to a 21st birthday party tonight that was based on  a purple theme. They each wanted me to create their look. I dyed Mum's hair last weekend and added splices of colour throughout to give it some edge. Mum's hair was light champagne blonde prior to me having a 'play' .. 

Not only do I love playing with make up but for a while now I have been 'into' hairdressing! I have been cutting Ma's hair for years now and usually dye it the one colour but she was up for a little creativity with my idea of splicing colour throughout. What a gal!

So here you see Ma with her new 'do'and her make over for the party. Let me tell you my Ma 'never' get's dollied up. Mum has always been a hard worker and always has her hands dirty. I am very proud of her and who she is and to see her enjoying a wee moment of pampering .. well .. let's just say we were both in our element. Love you Ma xXx ~ 

She then waited for Nikki to be finished (post above) and then they were to be on their way home to get changed. oooooooh! .. I think she looks 'Insanely Fab!' ... what about you! ....

Kat rocked the QOTM Party!





Insanely Beautiful 


Katrina

























Seriously what can I say ~ these girls rocked on Sunday! I am overly ecstatic at these photo's of Kat, Jess1 and Jess2.

Kat (Katrina) had her QOTM party and what a MaD time was had.

These little Princess wanted some different looks than what they were 'used' to and well check them out!

Kat who hosted the party rocked with her colours that Jess1 had applied. Beautiful came to mind when I was watching Jess1 transform her sister with colours that complimented her beautiful face and smile. Lookin good hunni ~ looking very good :D

Talk about laugh as these two sisters played. The comical atmosphere left us in giggles many times (still laughing now!).

Jess1 just wanted make up on ~ didn't matter what I applied ~ let's just play was her comment. Her sparkling eyes was enough but with adding QOTM products she glistened with a stunning make over. Well hellooooooo Jessica! Woohoo babe  ~ your gorgeous! (Even though you love to pull faces!) ;p 

 Ahhh the joy of experimenting ;)

Jess2 ~ O.M.G.! ~ Why? because this little lady wanted to try red (RED) lipstick. You know the colour that just about every gal is afraid to try! Look at her ~ WOWZA! ~ Red hunni suits you so well. This butterfly knows how to work the camera as well. Throw on some MaD stuff and you will no doubt find your inner alias as Jess2 proved. Check out that sparkle in her eyes ..... 

Kat's little bubba was to make an appearance as well in his jolly jumper (so kept us laughing!) ... I also noticed he had one of those colourful lip smackers on his cheeks ~ planted by one of his adoring princesses of course! ~ :D

Out came Kat's organiser with her collection of QOTM that she started when we first launched. I felt teary and elated seeing these babies in there new home. Me, sensitive I know, but very humbled by her comments of how much she loves them. *We love you too sweety - you're one of us now! ;p ...

Oh and mustn't forget the 'Charlie's Angels' pose! Hysterical ~ you three are totally looney! ... Love it! ... You fit right in! Ha.....

All I can say is these three princesses looked so 'Insanely Beautiful' I was left speechless ~

Thank you Kat for holding a QOTM party and also thank you for the feeling of heartfelt happiness when I left ~ Love you all X

... until next time ...

Oober excited to be chosen to be on Brandonista ~ Thank you so much Melissa X

Posted from Melissa:


 I'm excited to announce a new feature on the blog. Each week I'll be featuring a different Brandonista. What's a Brandonista? A smart & savvy woman rocking the small business world. Today, the spotlight shines on Giggi D., proprietress of Queen of the Madhouse Cosmetics






Name: Margaret Ciuzelis (aka) Giggi D.X
Business Name: Essence of Raquel Australia t/a Queen of the MaDhouse cosmetics
Occupation: Proprietor/Founder


1. Describe your business in 2 sentences.
High quality cosmetics at an affordable price. Interactive and fun marketing portraying beauty unearthed without shame and plenty of attitude!

 2. How did you come up with your business concept/idea?Quite by accident! Intended to make heel balm for cracked heels but found the consistency of my formula was perfect for lip balm! After tweaking the ingredients I veered to a different direction of making lipsticks and lipbalms as they looked and felt so pretty on. After researching too much capital was required for manufacturing so I decided to search for a supplier of high quality cosmetics and have my own range. What a dream! Not just lipsticks and lipbalms but a whole range ... why not!

 The concept and images I had envisioned long ago as I had always loved the fashion and elegance yet somewhat over the top extravagance of the Victoran era. French aristocracy, big, big wigs, bustle gowns and the like mixed with the madness of everday conjured up an image that I utilised with my daughter Raquel thus photographing her for the face of Queen. From a very crazy day at the office when everything and everyone was so frantic. An old term for this was to say 'queen of the madhouse!' when either answering the phone or greeting someone. A tongue in cheek reference to chaos!

3. What are your three superpowers? 
1. I'm crazy enough to enliven people with a little stupidity mixed with fun and a sprinkle of lunacy!
2. Making people feel very comfortable around me by being Giggi D.X the Queen of MaDness!
3. Transforming people from a chrysalis to a butterfly when beauty within outshines with colourful magnetism! (My own quote!) by Giggi D.X

4. What's the most valuable piece of advice you've ever received?
Not so much advice but more so the attitude of I will never do it and bring it to fruition. Guess what! I DID!

5. What are your three guilty pleasures?
1. Make Up (of course!) always has been.
2. Shoes (still need more)
3. Anything vintage

6. When they make a movie of your life, which actress will play you?
Meryl Streep because she could portay such a mixed bag of growing in a world that at times was unforgiving. A determination to succeed and do well with so many hurdles. Yet a fantastic warped and funny wit and sense of humour that would liven those around her yet hide what was inside that was killing her in her emotions without anyone knowing.

7. Any words of wisdom for fellow female entrepreneurs?
If you are told anything negative about your ability IGNORE IT - as the person giving that advice isn't worthy of such words. Fight for what you want & GET IT!
