Red, White and Blue

I stupidly got out my lipstick, about to put it on and then did my hair and forgot. Half way through taking these photos I realised I was lipstickless!! Not a good position to be in at all!! You will now be safe in the knowledge that I am now wearing lipstick.

Have you noticed I've really started to like red? Unfortunately, red and blue + white background+ photo editing = saturation overload. I wish I cared but I love everything looking so lovely and bright!! My mum sent me this cardigan and while I love it, it's not quite as warm as I would have liked. You can see the dots of my cardigan through it :[[

Well one thing America has taught me is that sometimes you have to be ballsy. My exciting news is that I am now one of the writers for College Candy! I read the site religiously several times a day (usually when I'm in class...) and I applied to be an intern a few months ago. I hadn't heard anything back since I send in my writing samples so I started to wonder if I'd missed out. Usually I'd just think "oh well", but I decided to email Lauren and see if I was just waiting or if I'd missed out. She said that she loved my work and even though all the internship slots were filled, she was going to offer me a position as a writer anyway!!

Today I finally bought a real UMD hoodie. I already have my free one but I wanted a real hoodie that I can wear at home when I am a long way from UMD and feeling nostalgic!! I have three University of Birmingham hoodies and a pair of sweatpants and I love them all.

Ooh I meant to mention this the other day, but the lovely Ashley is organizing for a group of bloggers to trade off writing guest posts for each other. If you're interested you can read more about it here. I think it's a great way for bloggers to get some more writing experience and great publicity for both bloggers involved.

I was really excited to create an outfit like this. I'm pretty much obsessed with red, and I wanted to wear this dress in a new way. I might try it next week as a skirt- with a red jumper on top. I love the mix of red, white and blue. I love these boots because they're so simple. They're no frills, simple black boots that go with everything. It was funny today because I wrote an article this week for The Statesman on winter boots and when I got to class everyone was looking at my boots and was saying they were wondering which ones I would wear!!

What are your plans for the weekend? For me it's probably going to be homework for the rest of today and then I might go see Inception on campus tonight (I can't wait to (hopefully) get it on DVD at christmas because I loved it!!), then tomorrow I plan to start my journalism feature story, finish my Godfather essay and work on some articles and my Shakespeare paper, and then Sunday as usual will be a day of the gym, speaking to my parents and lots of homework. I have plans to go to a Potluck dinner tomorrow though so I might be cooking this weekend :]]]

I'm stressed out of my mind with 5 assignments and 4 finals coming up but I'm just trying to keep my head above water and just work through this difficult time. I'll be leaving here in 19 days so I just want to get as much as I can out of the next few weeks and work as hard as I can and not let myself down.

I hope you have exciting plans for the weekend!!
