Gold Medal LOTD

On Wednesday this week my fiancé and I finally made it to the Olympic Park in Stratford to soak up some Paralympic action! We were both pretty excited and I knew I couldn’t really wear anything other than a gold look!

Eyes: Lid/Lower lashine, Darling Girl Honey Pot, brown from MUA Glamour Days. Crease, Silk Naturals Chequered. Highlight, No 7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter
Cheeks: Darling Girl Aloha, Boots No 7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter
Lips: Sleek True Colour lipstick in Vixen

The full face shot with flash is much more colour accurate – this was really bright in real life! Sadly there weren’t any gold medals for Team GB that night (although we scored a silver and a bronze!!!) but it was a fantastic evening. It was really awesome to see everyone getting behind the Paralympics – every athlete who did a victory lap after their event, no matter what it was or their nationality, got a standing ovation from the crowd! It was fantastic seeing Oscar Pistorius run and even better that our own Johnny Peacock whipped his butt!


The Stadium with our mascot Mandeville photobombing!


Me in front of the stadium – it changed colour at night! Not pictured: massive bag of Olympic swag.



And here’s some of the mascots that have been dotted around central London... there were over 80 of these suckers painted with different designs and costumes and we managed to find them all apart from one who got ‘taken to hospital.’ It took about 8 hours, but we’re sad acts and it was free, so we were determined!

Have you been enjoying the Olympics/Paralympics? Link me to your Olympic inspired looks if you’ve done one!


  1. Looks awesome fun, wish I could've made it down but sadly funds wouldn't allow. Love the gold eyes and red lips too :)

  2. I wore red white and blue eyeshadow plus gold eyeliner to the Olympics! I kind of regretted including the gold because the other colours made it look really yellow (not great on me) but hey, I was getting in the spirit of it! I don't think any of the photos I attempted to take of it came out very well though.

  3. Haha hilarious mascots!!! But hey, those shoes is remarkable crazy funny beautiful!! I've said it before and say it again, you have the best sense for details!!!
    And i love yellow shaded eyes together with red lips!!! Beaaahhhtiful!!/Azure

  4. Yay! Good for you Robyn!!! I took the kids last Fri to the athletics and Mon this week to Excel...totally cool experience, n'est pas?
    I was up and out too early to do eotd shots, but basically went quite neutral...also nice to see some Silk Naturals in the mix, I love that brand.

  5. DAMN, that is an awesome hairstyle!!!! Once again, I am jealous that you got to see live Paralymic events, it must be so exciting!
