Lady in Red
Sorry for the lack of real posts the last few days. I just wasn't feeling myself at all yesterday (however, I found later it was nothing a double-shot iced skimmed milk vanilla latte couldn't fix) but I really didn't feel like posting. Part of this was also to do with the fact that I wore brand new shoes in the morning that broke after 3 hours (never fear, I got the super-glue out on them this morning and they're as good as new now) so I just felt kinda rubbishy and ended up getting changed after that.
Happy Belated Easter, by the way! What did you get up to? I went down to my boyfriend's parent's house on Saturday and had a really fun, chilled out weekend with his friends and family. We also owned at both Cranium and bean bag throwing. I love going down to my boyfriend's parent's, I always have a great time and I love having a couple of days just me and him. This is threatening to be a kinda crazy week; I have two papers due in and my independent study is getting started, but I'm kinda feeling on top of it.. right now at least!! I have 1800 words of my 6000 word independent study done. Admittedly, it's rubbish so far, but hey, there are words on a page!!
lace dress- topshop via ebay
socks- urban outfitters
shoes- stolen from Mum
I'm really starting to enjoy wearing heels in the day time, which is good because every pair of shoes I've bought recently are heels. My Blowfish platforms may be the comfiest heels I've ever owned though. I can't wait to wear them properly. However, the weather is being kinda crazy again. Yesterday I was boiling in a dress and tights, and today I'm kinda chilly in a jacket. Apparently it's going to snow again next week- in May!! My wardrobe has been a little all over the shop the last few days. I had no idea what to wear this morning but I knew I wanted to blog, so I looked at my little outfit inspiration list (you know how much I love lists!!), and I'd written down this outfit and thought, fab. I really, really like it actually!! I bought these socks ages ago, but hadn't worn them yet. The ruffles kinda confused me but I like the scrunched-down look they give. These shoes are also my Mum's- thanks Mum!
I've been feeling a lot better about my life and myself the last few days. I've just decided, you know what, this is my life and this is who I am and I can't change that, unless I want to. I know I can't please everybody and I can't be perfect. And I'll never be able to be completely perfect in my own eyes. But I'm surrounded by people who make me happy, and more importantly who I make happy and they love me just the way I am. I waste too much time and energy sometimes on worrying about what people think. But I have to just be happy with who I am and grow to be more positive, and if I want to make changes that I think will make me more positive then I will. I only have a short time left here and I want to enjoy it and make the most of every minute, and not spend it worrying. My boyfriend always says he's much happier when I'm happy, and I want him to be happy. </end positive affirmation>
Have a wonderful week and I'll be back soon :]]
