I had another one of my 'moments' the other day - It tends to happen when I'm in the middle of doing something that I needs a certain level of concentration. I seem to zone out and instead of daydreaming about going on holiday or even wedding stuff, my thoughts turn to makeup of course!
This time instead of trying to imagine what the beauty industry would be like in future. I wondered if people actually share the same name as big beauty brands/Makeup Artists.
For example... Sally Hansen, Bobbi Brown, Barry M and so on. I obviously came to the conclusion that there are thousands of people with them names as they aren't exactly unusual. However with all my daydreams..they seem to take me down abit of an unrealistic path and I ended up thinking that if my last name was Brown I would be tempted to name my child Bobbi! Not that I'm planning little ones any time soon.
Which got me thinking 'Would you name your child after a beauty brand?'
Now I know this sounds all abit ridiculous however I do know someone with twins named Ruby & Millie (which came for Ruby & Millie the brand).
So I thought of all the highstreet makeup brands like - Rimmel, Bourjois, Garnier, Bloom, L'oreal, Une etc.
Out of all the highstreet brands I could only see maybe 'my little Bourjois' sounding umm normal-ish! (I realize I'm starting to sound crazy). Or even Bloom...which is quite similar to Blossom, right?
Then I moved onto high end brands such as Dior, Burt's Bees, Nars, Vichy, Yves Saint Laurent, Cowshed (ha), Essie, Guerlian, Chantecialle.
Quite afew good ones I'd say!
I'm quite particular to Nars... I mean it's similar to Lars and has to be better than Tarquin! Yves is also nice..of course it's more about the spelling as you do say 'Eve'... though I'm sure no one would be able to read out the name correctly.
Also Essie is quite cute...but these all are actual names, I guess!
I can't say there is any point or logic to this AT all as I would never dream of calling a child after my favourite beauty brand. But it did amuse me for afew minutes (ok, 10 minutes!).
Feel free to indulge in the madness with as I would love to hear any other ones that you can come up with!
