Headband of the day FOTD

Hi all,

Just got back in from having my fringe trimmed. Sadly strong winds restyled it on my way home but nevermind. I picked this gorgeous headband up for 10p in Boots. I looked up the collection and it's called Gothic Chic. So many lovely hair accessories. It's by Umberto Giannini. I also made the mistake of rushing straightening my hair and have a nasty burn on my left cheek bone. Oh joy.

-YSL Blanc Terriblement highlighter (middle stripe only).
