Tartan Take Two

Guess what guys? I curled my own hair! Okay, it doesn't look as good as when my Mum did it- and also, it was perfect little ringlets until I went to bed last night- but I STILL DID IT! I need some practice, but I am so glad I can do it myself. I'm excited to be able to have curly hair more regularly. Speaking of hair though, I really need to work on my photography/photoshop skillz. My hair is coming out far too blonde on my pictures!

So this was that I wore today. I've had this outfit idea in my head since I got this dress, and yeah, it's a little lumpy but I do really like it. I had a few issues with this jumper- I sorta rolled it up but it looked a little awkward. I added the ribbon though, which I really love- the collar on this dress is just so gorgeous!! In my head, I had bottle green tights, but I could only find these kinda turquoise-y ones (which are a little brighter than they look here). The tights kinda contrast with the outfit, and I really wanted them to go, but I quite like the effect. It remind me of Annebeth, who always rocks the coloured tights. My photography is a little off today though- I kinda cut off my shoes. Ah well, you get the gist right? I'm wearing the same boots that I always wear!

Today was a pretty good day. I finished one of my essays this morning which makes me so happy. I've got another few days to work on it because I asked for an extension because of everything with my Grandad, but I kinda want to get rid of it. I just have my other essay to finish off now, which is gonna need some more work. Anyway, I finished my essay and then wrote an article, so it was a productive morning. This afternoon I went into town with my housemate Beth to purchase, yep, some bottle green tights. I was going to order some online but Topshop wanted £4 for delivery, £4! So I thought it was easier just to go and buy some! I may have also bought a lot of hair products to keep my hair curly. It falls so quickly but I'm determined to make it stay.

Well, I'm going to have an early night tonight. I have my Skype interview tomorrow for the programme to work in the States over the summer that I've applied for. I want it so badly. They say the interview is just a chat to get to know you, but I'm so, so nervous. It would just be the perfect thing for me to work out there for the Summer before I get a big-girl job!
Wish me luck!

    PS: maybe you could try pin curls or rag curls, apparently they stay all day long ;)xx

  11. Ah I'm so jealous. I'm from Manchester but I'm at university in Birmingham. I studied abroad in the States last year and am spending my summer working there, but it's my dream to be able to move back forever. The States is my true home!
