Janine Basil Black Mini Crown

It’s 3am on the morning of my birthday, and what am I doing?  Writing a blog post, I must be crazy!
You’ll probably recognise this from my outfits of the weekend: Resistanz festival post and wondered where this baby came from.  Well a couple of weeks ago I was stalking the Janine Basil website, clocking up a basket I could never afford, drooling at all the glitter, complaining to myself that I couldn’t afford everything I wanted.  Then I thought why not treat myself!  So I  narrowed my choices down to one of her beautiful glitter crowns.  I argued with myself over colours before finally settling for black, because lets face it black goes with everything, and I had 2 goth festivals coming up, so this could not have been more perfect!  (I only actually ended up going to one of them boo!).  
It arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully, I’m a sucker for tissue paper, pretty cards and bows, and I love all the little touches you get when ordering from a person rather then a big company.  You can tell it’s handmade with love rather than factory made.  
Wearability wise it’s perfect, comfortable to wear, you can’t even tell your wearing it, which is surprising given it’s size.  It just slides on with an elastic headband, which is easily hidden by my hair, and feels very secure.  When I wore it for the festival I was worried that it wouldn’t stay put through 12 hours plus of bands and energetic dancing (ok drunken flailing) so I attached 2 bobby pins to the elastic each side of the crown and it didn’t budge all night!  It’s super sparkly and defiantly stands out and I got loads of compliments and people asking me where I bought it from! 
I don’t think this will be my last order, I’m currently eyeing up the Unicorn Headband, maybe next pay day if I’ve got some spare cash!  What is your favourite piece from her site?  Here’s a bonus picture of my mum photo bombing me:

P.S I made a couple of changes to my blog based on some twitter suggestions, I made my blog smaller and my photos bigger (starting with this post).  I’d love your thoughts on these and any other suggestions you might have.  Right I’m off to bed, I have a busy day of eating cake and trying to forget I am now closer to 30 then 20 *sobs*
