#OOTD / #NOTD

The last post was a bit depressing wasn't it? A huge thank you to you lovelies for the sweetest words ♥ And hey, Black Friday has cheered me up massively today (all the sales zomg!). Also cause.. y'know.. it's Friday and I get the boyf for the weekend. Well I'm also excited as hell to finally make some changes to my hair. Hopefully it'll turn out right cause this is gonna be a weekend-DIY-project. The next post will probably be all about turning my hair silver *fingers crossed for the colour to not go wrong*.

I finally stopped being lazy and did my nails a few days back, wearing 3 Concept Eye's VL04 nail polish. I love it almost as much as I love my OPIs and Essies.
 
Aaaaaand I also spontaneously went out to a drag night at the bar with the boyfriend on Wednesday. We had a pretty good time :)
Bustier from NastyGal
High waisted jeans from Wednesday (heh!)
Oh and I also wore my H&M coat out since it was freezing but it's not pictured..
Seriously, I am SO looking forward to having silver hair and spending some quality time with the boyfriend! Have a good weekend everyone

Diary entry: Loneliness

So I've written and deleted this entry for about 6 times now. To sum it up, I'm tearing up because I miss my friends. Add in a little homesickness and wanting someone other than a guy to listen to my rants. Honestly, it's one of those days where I'm just feeling really vulnerable and lonely. I wish my best friends were here right now. *sigh*

Lazy days

I've basically spent my weekend lying in bed and feeling freaking cold. What is up with the British weather being insanely cold all of a sudden?! I swear when the sun goes down, everything just drops to below freezing point (okay, total exaggeration but it feels that cold to me). Also, why are my days passing by so much faster? I can't be the only one thinking that with each passing day, time seems to pass much faster :(

Well, me and the boyf went into town today. Saw a really cute decor so here it is. I'm contemplating stealing the jacket I bought for him and keeping it for myself cause it's so darn warm. I swear I'm better at shopping for others than for myself. Er at least from the uh.. 'staying warm' department. Anyway, here's the cute reindeer decor I saw in town..
It's so freaking pretty isn't it? It's one of the many reasons I like the festive season. Sparkly lights are so magical 

Also, here's a big thank you to all my giveaway participants. Congratulations to Yasmine for winning it! There will be more giveaways to come in the future (hopefully I can figure the postage fees out ASAP so I can give away some of my cute stuff. Oh and finally getting around to updating/pricing the things I want to sell.. Sorry guys!)

If you haven't followed me on Instagram yet, let me show you just how cute my boyf is.
I mean.. he got me food after work ♥ I love you sillybum.

5:2 Juice diet?

And the weekend has arrived.. days are passing by so fast it's actually crazy. Well, I'm happily snuggled up in bed since 11am doing absolutely nothing. Okay, fine. Not nothing. I was window shopping online. Not for clothes this time, but for cold pressed juices. I had my very first bottle of cold pressed juice in HK and honestly, I loved it. It filled me up nicely but it just felt so healthy. The only downside of it, is that it's insanely expensive.

I have read articles after articles on the 5:2 juice diet and it seems like the easier diet ever. Celebrities swear by it so.. well, what other reason do we need to convince us that it's good eh? Here's an article/experience post about the 5:2 juice diet journey but in summary, you basically live on a juice fast for two days (it seriously doesn't seem that bad! Plus if you read the article, she lost 4lbs in 2 days! WTF). Anyway, so I did some research online, hoping to get myself a subscription or a starter pack of juices and honestly, I am so taken back by the price. Not so much that it puts me off indefinitely but enough to make me go 'let me rethink that'.

*pictures are taken from tumblr and compiled on photoshop

Has any one of you ever tried or are on the juice diet? I would to hear about your experience/where you got the juice from if you have!

I might just get a juicer myself so I can get a daily dose of whatever juice I like. I'm being serious. Oh and also, one day left to my giveaway! Join here. Thanks for being the best readers you guys x

Put together / Wants

You know what, I think I'm slowly beginning to be 'okay' with this cold weather. I'm learning to incorporate my fave summery-type clothing items into my current wardrobe. So that means I'm still obsessed with ripped jeans, yes. Cause I think it's the perfect way to me to show some skin and still be warm (in my standards). I've found a few pair that I'm head over heels for!

From left to right:
Slashed boyfriend denim from Liquor n Poker (found here) - £40 / Ripped skinny jeans from Nastygal (found here) - £75.31 / Black slashed skinnies from Liquor n Poker (found here) - £40

They're a little bit more pricey than usual (specially the middle pair) but my mom always used to tell me that when it comes to denim, it's better to splurge on it. A good pair can last you a long time. Head on over to check out more of Liquor n Poker's cute items btw.

Oh and with the colder days, I've also been wearing beanies and caps. I've always loved a good snapback and since I'm a tiny bit bored being at home by myself right now.. I thought I'd put together a new outfit centred around a snapback I picked from the MLB hats section on fanatics.com (they sell all sorts of sports apparel!). I picked a NY Yankees cap cause I've always wanted one of these :)

Top from the Alexander Wang x H&M line - £29.99 
Draped skirt - £7.99
Tailored jacket - £17 
Metal clutch bag - 14.99
Heels - £34.99 all from H&M
New Era NY Yankees cap - USD$34.95 from fanatics.com

I know I've never really like gold coloured items cause I used to think its tacky but.. I think I'm developing feelings for it haha. What would you guys have paired a snapback with? The usual t-shirt and jeans combo or something else? Also I still can not stress how obsessed I am with ripped jeans!! Anyways, let me know in the comments!

Nov Give

Yay to me finishing my first assignment of the year in three days! But gah, it's been getting so cold. Is anyone else excited about Christmas (like me) already?! What that really means is.. are you excited about Christmas shopping?! I swear there's so much stuff I want it's ridiculous (but isn't that just like everyone else?). But sadly, I've got four assignments due on my birthday month which is gonna stress me out immensely.

Oh and did you guys know that my fav NastyGal is going to open up their first physical store (?!?!?!?!) at Melrose Ave on November 21 (?!?!?!?!). *crosses my finger that they open up a store in Manchester* I mean, a girl can dream..

Hmm talking bout shopping, how about a nice new pair of Firmoo glasses for one of you lovely followers for the festive season? Join in on the giveaway below!
*Winner can choose a new pair from this page only.

I will be hopeful about NastyGal opening a store in the UK.. I will be. Laters x

Living in the now

So my one week holiday is over. And no, I didn't get to catch up on sleep. No, I didn't have time to blog either. Why? Because I had the best week partying. Max was here the whole week and it's been so good. I feel bad for being unproductive and all.. but I got some much needed fun time because from now on, it's probably gonna be all work/no play. The amount of assignments and things I have to do are ridiculous :(

We went to Chester on Tuesday night, bar on Wednesday, Garlands on Thursday and bar again on Friday. Saturday was spent celebrating (our 11 months) with the boyf in Manchester. So yeah, it's just been so good.
 I've been wearing loads of things I've bought from NastyGal the entire week but I haven't taken a picture of each outfit. Anyway, here's what I wore on Tuesday night:
Dress from NastyGal

And apologies for not being able to update the blog but I'll try my best soon. I have missed writing/summarising about my day on a daily basis but learning to live in the moment has made me feel a lot better about myself. Well, that's it for now cause its Monday noon and I'm not quite functioning at all.

MoMovember

So in the end, I went as Princess Peach for Halloween! I managed to find all my items at the very last minute (I walked for 5 hours to & in town) but the Halloween party at the bar was so worth it. I had so much fun :) And right now, it's development week aka sleeping week. I swear I've been going to bed so early these past few days I feel old. Is this the first few signs of me turning 20 soon? Tiredness? Oh, I still fill in my age as 18 all the time without realising that I'm actually 19.. shit.

But anyways, here are the pictures!
Everything except the top was from the children's department! The gloves are actually from the baby's department.. yes I have tiny hands.
I made the boyf's Toad head cause he was still at work and he would've done a shit job at it :P everyone loved my masterpiece haha. The base of the toad head was made with one party hat, one box (cut into a circle), papers and plastic bags as fillers to make it pop. And yeah, the wig came off at the end of the night cause it was itching my scalp so much.

This was my hair after I slept in tight braids.
I'm considering cutting my hair shoulder length again. Long hair is just a little too hard to manage for an OCD freak like me. It takes forever to dry (especially during the winter months) and I just have to wash it on a daily basis. So next things on my to-do list is to get a haircut & silver ends 

Also, since it's development sleeping week. I'll be updating my new tab - Closet soon! x
