My parents went to Singapore on holiday just before I was born (apparently I was conceived there - too much information fo'sure) and my Mum brought back these lovely peacock hairslides. That makes them at least 25 years old!
She gave them to me a few years back since I have long hair and she has very short hair. When she gave them to me she impressed upon me how special they were to her and how I was to keep them safe. Consequently I've only ever worn them once, to Vicky's 18th birthday party.
I'd like to wear them on my wedding day, especially since someone who knows what they're doing will be hopefully doing my hair that day!
