Spring is here! Ok it’s still cold but you can feel it getting warmer…sometimes.
I’ve started wearing my jumpers less often now and for last Tuesdays class, I went for a more spring/summer outfit.
I wasn’t too sure about that small belt so when I wore it to work I opted for a thicker belt
Which one do you think is better?
Since it’s still wet outside, I went for my brown military boots the day that I was going to work. For class, I decided to wear my black boots with gold on them.
I’m looking forward to wearing more girly clothes again. I wonder what I should wear to class tonight?
I’d been thinking of getting a piercing…again. I just take wee notions y’know? Well, a few days after dip dying my hair, I added this:
Yeaaaa, a second hole. Just in that ear. I had wanted my tragus pierced but after watching a video on how it was done? Eh no. My friend actually got her tragus done a couple of days ago and said it was agony so now it’s a definite no. If she thought it was sore I have no hope.
Anyway, I’d looked round the chemists in town and none did ear-piercing anymore…bar one which charged like £16 or £17. A couple of jewelers did it but they charged around that price too. Having my own kit and knowing how it really doesn’t take much, I did not want to pay that much. Instead, I hunted for my kit and took it to school with me. As much as I could have done my own ear, I decided against it in case I jumped and pulled the gun away which would mess it up. So, what did I do? I got my friend Amy from school to do it for me. Poor girl had never done it before. I set the gun up for her and explained how to do it, letting her do one practice hole in a wee fake ear made of cardboard and sponge. She actually did it really well so I told her no more practice, time for my ear. She was nervous but then she just kind of…did it. (her words exactly when a girl in class asked if she was afraid) I expected it to hurt a lot more than it actually did. It didn’t even hurt the next day and I’m fine lying on it. I had to actually question if it had gone through ^.^’
What did Chris say when he saw? “What, you got there done? I thought you were getting that other bit done. So now you have two there, one at the top and one in the other ear? *sigh* Why are you doing this?” Poor guy still doesn’t like piercings (not that it stops me.) Well, if I ever change my mind I can take it out. Oh yea, he also said “You do know that when we have kids you have to take out all your piercings?” Hmm…no. That will not happen. I will keep them until I decide I don’t want them any more.
I’ve gained some followers lately. Thanks for deciding my blog is follow worthy =]
Going to nursery means running about after children and tidying lots. Don’t forget about getting dirty if we’re painting/playing outside so I stick to casual outfits that are easy to move about in. The rules say no jeans and although I’ve been kind of slacking off on that rule because jeans are so easy to move about in, I’m trying to stay away from the jeans now. I have to admit, it’s harder to pick something now because it’s still cold. I ended up trying on 5 outfits the night before nursery and ended up just settling on this because I was too tired to keep looking.
Once I got into nursery I ended up regretting the tights/shorts because I was freezing all day. That and the fact that I kept having to pull the belt back down every time I had stretched up >.< Well lesson learnt. I’ll be more careful with my choices in the future.
Ah, payday tomorrow….maybe I’ll buy new trousers
Walking around town I can spot so many people with dip dyed hair. I used to dislike the look but guess what? I took a notion and so….I did it. Well, not me, I bought the dye and got my friend to do it for me.
I bought the Ombre kit by L’Oreal for £6.48 in Tesco. Sure, I could have tried to do it myself but what if it went wrong? I can’t make sure it looks right at the back can I?
I went to my friends house on Thursday night. The instructions said to put it on dry hair so I decided to straighten it, thinking it would be easier. On the instructions it says to leave it in for 20-45 minutes. I didn’t want to end up super blond at the bottom so we decided to start checking it from 20 minutes onwards. In the end, we decided to leave it for 30 minutes and it turned out alright. One thing though. It wasn’t as easy as we thought to put it in my hair because as soon as my hair got wet it started to curl up again =S We actually did it twice because after the first go we thought it didn’t look like much in my hair. We then ended up then fixing it up at the end so that it looked even at the back. The colour I wanted was more of an ash blond than proper blond because it would look a bit more natural.
Here’s how my hair turned out:
What do you think?
I say accidental as I went with my sister so that she could buy something, not me. I wasn’t planning to spend anything. Instead, I ended up buying more than her >.<
Here’s my haul:
All of that (bar the ring) came from Internationale. I’ve been after a coat like that for so long but I could never find one that I really liked or that fitted. This one is a size 6 so that made me feel pretty good – normally I couldn’t even get an arm into a size 6 ^.^’ It was £54.99. Luckily, Internationale had a promotion on where if you spend £50 or over you get £10 off. The woman was nice enough to tell us and suggested putting the coat through on its own first as we would end up getting £20 off because we had almost £100 worth of stuff between us . The necklaces were both £4.99 and £5.99 and the t-shirt was actually from the children’s section for £8.99…and talking about it now has just reminded me that it’s not allowed in the tumble dryer and I’m pretty sure its in there atm…lets hope nothings happened to it. I got the ring in H+M for only £1!
Of course that’s not all I bought. I also bought some new underwear (which obviously I won’t take a photo of) and I also bought a concealer by Rimmel for £3 or £4. I think I did pretty well considering I wasn’t planning on buying anything.
That’s it for now. I’ve to finish getting ready to go out!
I’ve posted a lot this week. I did disappear for a while (I didn’t really have anything to write about) so now I’m making up for it!
I was heading over to my sister’s house for a while before class so I picked something casual, comfy and easy to run about in with Anton and Callum.
Scarf: Primark (Christmas present)
Jeans: RJ Jeans (Germany)
Boots: New Look
Necklace (and matching earrings not shown): New Look (Christmas present)
I decided on a side plait as it’s quick, easy and keeps my hair out of the way but it’s still girly. Make up was a must because I was going to class.
I’ll be posting again soon (I promise!)
Did I ever tell you that I really wanted to go somewhere like the Maldives this year? Well, I really do want to go.
One day while I was window shopping I spotted this:
I know I have a bikini (which I really wanted at the time but it still has its label on it) but how could I not want that?! It’s so cute. I love how there’s a wee skirt bit to hide my bum a bit. I think it’s quite ‘me’. I would love to buy it but I think I’d need to get into shape first… and book a holiday. For now I’ll quietly keep an eye on it and hope for a wee holiday.
Much love ♡
