A laundry list of problems doesn't make you interesting




Today got off to a bad start. My GHDs, which I've had for almost 4 years to the day finally decided to give up the ghost. It was a heart-wrenching moment when they wouldn't even turn on this morning. I'm sad. My hair seems to look okay and I think I'll manage without them until Christmas, but I might get a cheap pair of straighteners over here. I don't straighten my hair often but sometimes I just need them to get my hair right!!






My day went from bad to worse. I'd gotten up at 7am to go to the library early to finish an article and work on a paper I have due next week and my always-temperamental (I just don't think it likes America) laptop also decided to just not work with me today. Back into ITSS it went, for the third time. I'm on a loaned laptop, yet again, but I'm sulky because I wanted to Skype my parents.



My day wasn't really getting any better. I procrastinated with my laptop in my Shakespeare class and got in trouble and I was feeling a little disheartened. Then I decided, no. I am not going to let events that happened before midday affect the rest of today. I am going to make today a good day. I am going to be productive and I am going to be happy, and this is my mantra for the day. I had a great day yesterday and I'm determined not to let a few bad things take me down from the high of yesterday. There is no reason for me to be unhappy. I am choosing to be happy. Sure, things have annoyed me today but why should I let them ruin the WHOLE day for me? I am staying positive and taking control of my day.

Yet again, these photos were taken by the lovely Ashley, using her amazing camera which is the exact same one I want for Christmas (look Mum and Dad, aren't the photos good?!). We headed up the road from campus to take these and I had a play in the leaves which was fun :]]] I love this time of year but it's already starting to get colder and I am completely unprepared for it :[[ These coats (I have this one in blue too) are nowhere near warm enough for how cold it is going to get here. I contemplating taking them back (see how the yellow ones gapes a little bit at the bottom?) but they are so nice and bright and I'm contemplating pinning the bottom bit to stop it coming open.



I'm going to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show on Friday for the Statesman. Any idea of what I should wear? I was thinking of getting some fishnets and just wearing a strapless black dress and heels. Any opinions? We kinda half-watched the film last night and that was enough of a head-fuck- I have no idea what to expect from the show!!


Here's to thinking positive and having a good day!!

  5. this is going to sound mean but i don't like the coat, the rest of the outfit is lovely and i like the colour but i don't think the shape works on you. i think you suit a more fitted jacket, which is what you usually wear and in a winter coat i think you should go for a tighter fitting top and a flared bottom/skirt, not pulled in at the bottom like this one.
    the more i look at it the more i think it might also be a size too big for you?!
    just my opinion.
