Dressing up is not just for children.

Whilst going through some of the many photos I have of myself I found some outfits that I haven’t had a chance to wear yet because I never go out. I think that’s my problem, I buy all these clothes so I can look nice when I go out, but then I always decide that I’d rather just stay home. I’m not saying its a bad thing, its something that I really like about myself (and not just because it saves me money I’d waste on alcohol). Don’t get me wrong, I love going out with my friends and having good time, but when it comes to the end of the day I’d rather stay at home in my PJs watching a movie, or one of my favourite TV shows. In the long run I don’t think I save that money because instead of going out I buy clothes online for when I eventually do go out, but then I hardly get a chance to wear them. Kind of ironic really. Because of this I’ve decided to post some of the photos I recently found of my new(ish) outfits. I hope you enjoy them as much as I will when I finally wear them. 🙂

Black lace dress 🙂
Don’t know why I wasn’t smiling in even one photo with this dress :\

 

 

Galaxy Skirt 🙂
(only reason I’m wearing grey singlet is because that was what I already had on, and I don’t know why it is sideways, sorry)

 

I will admit, I’ve worn my leopard dress a few times 😉

Moustache singlet because it’s amazing!

Pretty flower dress 🙂

 

Fairy outfit anyone?

 

Leather jacket and dress with tights 🙂

Full view of my leopard dress.

Pirate outfit.

 

 

My favourite Doctor Who shirt to finish it off because if you don’t like Doctor Who you’re insane (sorry).

If it wasn’t obvious I ran out of photos of outfits I hadn’t actually worn out so I just decided to post some of my favourites. Apologies for the two photos that are sideways I couldn’t figure out how to rotate them. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and look at the endless photos of myself.

 

Lazy title, lazy post.

I feel rather slack at the moment because I’ve been so stressed with uni lately that the only thing I’ve actually managed to get done lately is unpacking. To keep up my efforts of being really slack I’m going to give you this photo of my new hair. I wish I got it higher though because it doesn’t look as good as it could because I don’t have much purple at the bottom.

Purple ;D

You can see my hair better in the following photo, its all blurry and gross though.

Just ignore my face 😉

Maybe I’ll give you an idea of what I’ve had to sort out and unpack as well. This way you will understand why I haven’t gotten anything done in the last week 😦

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

As you can see, it’s a pigsty! That’s all I can show you at the moment as my boyfriend is in there and I have to get ready for work. At least you can actually see the floor now! Alas, that will have to wait until I get home from work. Apologies again for my lack of posts lately.

Studying hard, or hardly studying?

So at the moment I am really stressed with everything that is going on at the moment. I have two major assignments due in 2-3 weeks, my brother is visiting and I’m also in the process of moving house. I probably could have greatly reduced my stress load by moving next week or something, but I really wanted to move as soon as I could (mainly to save money). But this isn’t the main reason that I’m stressed, although it is very hard trying to juggle the three.  The main reason I’m feeling so stressed at the moment is because of these two assignments that I have to do, one is 50% of my grade and one is 40%, and I just don’t know how to do one of them. No matter how many times I sit down and try to knock it out (or even get started), I just don’t know where to begin and it’s driving me insane. Every time I sit down to do it I just have no clue what to do so I end up going on Facebook (sad, but true)

Something  I’ve realised this last week is that trying to do so many things at once is really tiring. And I still have a lot of uni work to do, my room is currently the biggest mess ever (I’m currently sleeping in my sisters bed because mine is still at the old house) but at least I get to spend some time with my brother. I’m exhausted, I have a double shift at work tomorrow, which means I’ll be there for 7-10 hours. And then I have to get up early on Sunday to move my bed into the new place and then go and get my wardrobe. After I’ve managed to get all the unpacking done I really have to knuckle down and finish these assignments. All I can say is I CANNOT WAIT FOR SUMMER HOLIDAYS!

What I want to know though is, how do you deal with stress?

Ombre, yay or nay?

I’m really interested in getting everybody’s opinion in this hairstyle. I have been wanting to get this hairstyle for a while, but before I 100% commit to it, I’m trying to get opinions on whether it would look good or not. While many people get the ombre style with natural colours (such as brown roots slowly merged into blonde), I want to get purple and possibly blue.

Typical brown to blonde ombre.

Blue and purple ombre.

Now I want to get my hair kind of like it is in the second picture, but I only want to have about an inch (2 at the most) of blue/purple. I want to get my bottom layer a vibrant blue, and a nice purple for the top layer. To begin with, I want to know what you think of this idea. Secondly, I am not sure whether to make my hair gradually fade into these colours (mainly the top layer cause you will see it more) or if I want to make it just immediately that colour. The whole idea of ombre is that you fade into the second colour, but I cannot decide which would look better

Immediate change.

More subtle/gradual change..

My hair is not this long, but another example of gradual change.

 

This is what my hair looks like now as well, just so you can imagine it,

I would really appreciate it, if all you bloggers could take the time to let me know what you think.

Now you’re just some face that I used to know.

I apologise in advance if this doesn’t come across how I intended as it’s quite late and I’ve spent forever trying to write this and it’s just not coming out how I planned. I’m also having trouble with my eyes at the moment (long story short they’re just a bit blurrier than normal so I’ve had to set the resolution on the screen of my laptop to the lowest so I can kind of make out the words on my screen, which are now a lot bigger). So here it goes..

Makeup is a subject that really frustrates me. I don’t understand why so many beautiful women feel the need to wear makeup. All we are doing is conforming, once again, to society’s standards.  It’s because of society that women feel the need to make themselves feel ‘pretty’ by packing on shitloads (yes that’s a standardised measurement) of makeup every day. Thinking back, I know this wasn’t the nicest thing I’ve done, but there was this girl that my best friend and I used to call ‘cake-face’ (not to her face) because every single day at school she wore so much makeup that it would start to crack halfway through the day. A couple of months ago a saw a photo of her without makeup and she was so beautiful; and honestly, she looked so much better than when she wore makeup. I don’t know who the bozo was that came up with the idea of makeup but the feeling that to be beautiful you have to wear makeup and be really skinny is only enhanced by magazines.

There’s this quote I heard the other day that I really liked and I think will help get across the point that I am trying to make. “If all girls started wearing no makeup and comfortable clothes, guys would have no choice but to fall for girls because of natural beauty.” And there is no beauty quite like natural beauty. I was on a website earlier today where I saw an eleven-year-old girl asking how she should approach her mum to ask to wear makeup, and this is what I replied with:
“I personally think eleven is too young to start wearing makeup. I didn’t start wearing makeup until after school, and even now I only ever wear it to work and when I go out to dinner/town. Young skin like yours is precious and you should flaunt it rather than try to cover it up.”

Like I said, even at my age I believe that makeup should only be used sparingly. Why do we feel the need to cover up our beautiful skin? The answer is simple, men. Why is it that women feel like they have to go to so much effort every morning getting ready to make themselves pretty (according to men’s standards)? Although it’s not just men anymore, women are probably the most hypocritical as you’ll probably find a lot of women judging other women walking past them walking down the street, and then if you’re really lucky, you’ll hear them complaining about how men are all the same, or how men are so judgement. Take a look at yourself in the mirror woman!!! I realise I’ve been jumping about a bit because I just find it so frustrating that I don’t know where to begin and everything comes out all at once. To finish, I’m interested to know, what are your opinions about makeup?

Just an awesome Doctor Who quote to brighten your day.

We’re so lucky we’re still alive to see this beautiful world. Look at the sky. It’s not dark and black and without character. The black is in fact deep blue. And over there! Lighter blue. And blowing through the blueness and the blackness, the winds swirling through the air. And there shining, burning, bursting through, the stars! Can you see how they roll their light? Everywhere we look, the complex magic of nature blazes before our eyes.
