My name is Effi (yes, like off off skins) and welcome to Femme Face. I’ve been blogging here since last February and I love it. It’s a blog about pretty girly things that I like, or things that inspire me, or just stuff that makes being a girl a little easier. And there’s a bit of sex talk thrown in too.
I’m a twenty three year old redhead living in the big city of London being typically British a lot of the time by making small talk about the weather and complaining about the delays on the tube. I have cat Crayon and I’m originally from a small hut in a small village in Wales surrounded by sheep and Farmer’s sons. I like to pretend I’m a lot cooler than I am but really a perfect night for me is getting a fish and chips takeaway, watching Grey’s Anatomy in my spotty pyjamas and plaiting my hair.
I wear polka dots more than any human should and red lipstick a lot of the time because it pulls the focus away from the freckles smothering my face. When I’m writing I eat chocolate buttons and palma violet sweets and I’m obsessed with the colour teal.
Well Work Stuff
I’ve wanted to be a writer since my mother started making up stories for me to calm my temper as a child. I do freelance writing bits, another task I get to do in my pyjamas. I’m very involved with my blog and spend a lot of time staring it at it willing it to do things. Friday Sex talk is the biggest UK lesbian sex column and I also put on classes to talk to women about them at the famous London sex store Sh!. I also have a little shop with my greeting cards and posters that you can see here soon.
I run the company MissFit with my best friend and flatmate Sandra D where we put on things for women. We have a little office in our flat and constantly bicker over who’s turn it is to wash up and which way around the toilet roll should go. There are the clubs, in East and in Soho, and we are putting on a prom in March because we like to dress up pretty and dance the night away with tequila and glitter. We love vintage things and we have a fayre happening early next year and lots of other girly shit planned.
Women and writing are my passion and I think I’ve done well to build a career that incorperates these two things.And tequila. And unicorns. I have written two novels, one based in Yorkshire and one in London and I do very much hope that I can get them published some day. And that people will walk into book shops and see my little novels on the shelf and pay shiny pounds to read them.And I hope the people that the books are based on never read them because they will get very mad.
Well, the Favourites
I love reading and have quite an extensive collection of books much to the annoyance of who I live with who regularly trip over piles of them when walking through the flat. My favourite authors areJodi Picoult, Freya North and David Nicholls and I will never forgive Anne Hathaway for ruining the Yorkshire accent in the One Day film.
I adore Topshop and H&M and will often have to hide emails from myself so i don’t accidentally spend five hundred pounds on dresses and fluffy jumpers and pastel nail varnish. I also like anything that has owls on it and that includes a really inconvenient door stop in my hallway that doesn’t hold any doors open and we constantly fall over it.
My favorite makeup brand is Dainty Doll because I know that whatever product I buy, it will look decent on my skin rather than any other brand where porcelain still looks orange. In my opinion, it should go Ivory, Porcelain, Casper. I wear Britney Spears perfume because it’s sweet and the bottles look nice on my dressing table and I use Lush and body shop products as much as I can in the day because the smells are so good they make me slightly orgasm.
Well, Other Stuff
Nope, think that’s everything. I do wish I was more interesting I promise you. No wait, I’m Welsh Ginger Lesbian who thinks unicorns are real. I think I’m good.
Any questions might have been answered in the FAQs. The unicorns say hi.
