About Kirstiie:

“I’ve always had an acting interest in make-up and clothes. From beaming proudly waiting for my Mom to pick me up from my first day of school with newly ‘cut’ bangs of which I’d done with a blunt pair of kiddie scissors. To sitting in Graphic Design class colouring my hair with poster paints. Collecting odd, chunky buttons and stuffing them on an old piece of string to adorn my neck. Not to mention piercing my own ears with safety pins, and attempting to sew my own clothes during a textiles class; which promptly resulted in me being ‘sent out’ of lesson due to attaching a small group of classmates together.

I’m not saying I’ve been conformist in my approach, but I’ve had heart.

The hours I’ve spent surfing the internet browsing at trends and one-offs, compiling wish-lists of items I’d love to adorn. Adding clothing pages to my bookmarks, mentally trying things on in my head, creating new looks from eclectic pieces. Browsing through carefully thought out displays in malls, souks, stands, markets and stores.

I’m a woman…A woman who enjoys shopping. Visually, theoretically and physically. I also enjoy putting outfits and looks together and experimenting with cosmetics and looks.

That’s why it was just about high time I donned my thinking cap, put my newly polished nail to the keys and begin this blog by saying a big “Hello” and “Thanks for dropping by”.

Along with having worked a stint at Bliss magazine and the BBC, I’ve produced regular reviews and articles for Big City Rednecks Magazine and Beat Your HeART Out Magazine as well as digital manipulations for Twist Unique Clothing (tip of the cap to editors Rose Dennen, Tamzin Forster and Carol Dewison).

Currently an Operations Director in day-to-day life; this blog allows me an outlet for discussing and expressing – not only current trends in fashion and beauty, but interesting and unique finds, that you may find fun, interesting and/or entertaining.

If so, feel free to put your feet up, pop on a sunhat (don’t forget your SPF 15) and stick around!”

    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I am thinking about cutting my hair like Mollie King and see you cut yours like hers. I love it!! Could you tell me if it has any layers in it or all one length

    • Tribe of Mannequins Creator August 5, 2013 at 7:45 pm #

      Hey there!

      Good for you! It’s actually really nice having shorter hair, much more manageable; especially in the warm weather.

      My hair is quite thin/fine; so too may layers thins a style out too much. Some layers are always good though; especially around the face :)

    Hi,
     
    I came across your beauty blog tribeofmannequins.wordpress.com and really love your posts – honest, personal, and SUPER useful makeup tips that I know many women love too!
     
    I lead all PR efforts for The Salon Outlet, a new online retailer for salon and makeup tools and equipment.

We give you the practical, you do the pretty.
     
    For our big launch, we are partnering with the hottest beauty and makeup bloggers, so I’m reaching out to you to see if we could work together. Here are different ideas we have:

    2) Product Review. We’d like to send you a product, and in exchange, ask you to write up a review, with a link back to TheSalonOutlet.com. Can also be done in video form if you prefer.

    3) Product Giveaway. You can host a contest for your blog readers and we’ll send your winner a product. Our makeup brush sets would be great for this.

      Hi there Dana,

      Firstly, thank you for your message; that is definitely something I would like to be a part of, thank you for thinking of me.

      I think number 3 would be very fitting; part of driving traffic and also promoting your product: “3) Product Giveaway. You can host a contest for your blog readers and we’ll send your winner a product. Our makeup brush sets would be great for this”.

      I look forward to hearing from you.

      Kirstiie
