Have I Told You Lately.

Today I did something quite impressive (although not something I would ever recommend) and that was complete a 3000 word essay in a day (12 hours). It's not something I should be proud of, but that's what you get for being a procrastinator and leaving EVERYTHING until the last minute.
For anyone that wants to know, I'm doing a less-than-part-time diploma in Cosmetic Science, I'm not sure what I want to do in life but I know it will be involving cosmetics some how.
I'm so glad it's out of the way. I still have so much more to do, I've taken on a few little side projects recently which is all work experience but I'm going to be shattered for the near future.

I bought a few glossy magazines recently, I love the start of the month! Although after reading all day, I'm not sure if my little eyes can take it for much longer.
I also bought a couple of Models Own polishes are they're 2 for £8 in Boots at the moment, I got Golden Peach which is a lovely peach with gold through it and Jade Stone which is a nicer Top Turquoise (I think) a bit Barry M "Mint" and just lovely!
I've had the Models Own/Wah Nails pen for a while but still can't use it. Bleugh.

Today I dyed my hair a nice warm medium brown, I liked my last colour but my roots came through and I couldn't be bothered with the upkeep. This colour is closer to my natural colour (although a bit darker but it will fade a considerable amount).

Aaaand finally, some pictures of my wardrobe/shoes. A giant mess! I have around 40 pairs of shoes here in Leeds and more at home. Which means I have about 100 shoes altogether (because I have two feet). Sickening, really.

What has everyone done with their sunday?


  1. That's a lot of shoes! You can't possibly have too many though, they're a work of art. I have a pair that I've worn once and can hardly walk in but can't bear to part with them, they're utterly beautiful!

  6. your hair colour looks beautifullll! :)

    by the way - thought i'd let you know that it's golden peach not fuzzy peach. i really recognized the colour and knew i had it but then when you said fuzzy peach it made me realise i didnt have it so i checked and its golden peach! still havent tried it though (im such a nail polish addict - have so many i havent even tried) I bought it on some discunt code with the fabulous mag ages ago!

    Love your blog - it's super addictive! :) xo

  7. I LOVE Company magazine, I need to pick me up a copy :).

  12. I like the new layout :) Coral is one of new fave colours at the mo. But I do miss the wee birdies lol :P

    I learned how to sew today (after almost 20 years of living). Another step towards learning how to cope in the real world. Yay!

    I'm also so dumb because I've been following you for a while now and I only just realised what "kay eh tea ei" means. Duhrrr!

    p.s. You can never have too many shoes! :)

  13. I always leave essays until the last day.. don't know why I do it, always so so stressful!

    There's no shame in having so many shoes :)

  15. I see that you conveniently tidied away your professional clown shoes when taking the last photo. Luckily I have a photo and will now hold you to ransom.
