Loom Bands, friendship bracelets made from brightly coloured elastic bands woven together, were the latest craze from the playground. Now adults have caught on, especially since Kate, Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing one given to her during the royal visit to New Zealand.
Penny, aged nine, is busy making them for family and friends in their favourite colours. I chose orange/black and pink/mauve, following the theme of my summer makeup (my post, "Pretty Pink Lips for Summer" 15th June). In the photograph below, my Loom Bands are teamed with H&M Nail Polish in Summer Sunset (orange) and Pink Shock (shocking pink).
Currently, I am painting my fingernails orange, my toenails shocking pink and I'm wearing my fuschia lipgloss.
