Holiday Countdown: 11 Days & BooHoo Order

America Countdown:
11 days

Last night I got home to find I had received my order in the post! Yay!

So to recap I bought 3 dresses and a belt, which you can see the stock photos in this post. They came in a plastic posting bag, and then they were individually wrapped in their own plastic bags.

Boohoo order bags
Laid out in their bags!

Boohoo order laid out
And here it all is laid out!

I tried a few things on last night, however the lighting wasn't good enough to take photographs, so tomorrow I am going to try it all on and take photographs! But from what I can see I think I will be sending the 'Leah' dress back! :( It just doesn't look very flattering on me, which is a shame as it's my name!

Holiday Countdown: 12 Days!

America Countdown:
12 days

Oh wow, my first post without the meme! Whatever will I doo! Haha.

Well I think I am still under the weather, boo! I am really hoping that it will be gone by this weekend coming, really need to start shorting out my holiday stuff. I am also going to book myself in to have my hair done just before I go away, roots need bleaching asap, they are well over an inch long! Also needs a trim and colour top up! Will post before and after photo's when I get it done! :)

I am really hoping I also receive my boohoo purchase in the post today, as I have been waiting since Friday! And *fingers crossed* I get the marks for my final major projects in the post today as well!

I need to start making a holiday list, make sure I do not forget anything! I think at the moment all I can think of are the basic, and all my Loli stuff! Although I dont know what Lolita to take with me! I shall decide soon :)

Now I shall leave you with a picture of how I have painted my nails!
Stargazer gold with Barry M black crackle!

Oh and the big thing that happened, just before I went out for my meal with my friends is...I lost my voice!!! It still hasnt come back fully, I was thinking of doing a small V-log just to show everyone how silly I sound, but I dont think it comes out on camera well!

Picture Meme - Day 27 & 28

My birthday - 1 day
America - 18 days

Well I did mean to post a blog post yesterday! But I went to the cinema last night and as soon as I got back to mine I crashed, so the blog post I had saved didn't get finished, here's what I wrote...

Woop woop! My birthday is nearly here! I cant wait :) Sounds weird but - The sooner my birthday comes and goes, the quicker my holiday will be here! Woooo! I bought a travel pillow today for £6 off ebay, so that will keep me comfy on the plane and when we travel in the car :)
I am also scouring ebay for some bargains on clothes, think I have spotted a lush bench boob tube, just trying to bid on it now ;-;
I am feeling a lot better today as well, thank god! I really hope I am close to 100% tomorrow, as I need to get to the gym and then I am going out in the evening. We shall see, I have been taking day nurse, which is helping a lot!

I am feeling roughly the same today as I did yesterday in terms of illness and such, but I am still taking day nurse and fingers crossed I will be better by tomorrow! Even if I am the same again it isn't too bad, just get a headache every now and again, as I think my throat is under control :)

Tomorrow is gonna be such a fun packed day! Have to get up super early as my aunt wants me to go round her house before 11am! Eek!
Tonight I am really looking forward to going to a burlesque evening, should be fun! And I am dressing up as well :) Sooo much fun to be had I can't wait!

Picture Meme - Day 26

My birthday - 3 days
America - 20 days

Well today I find myself in bed, ill. Last night before going to bed I had a tickle in my throat and a big headache, but thought nothing of it. Had a terrible nights sleep and woke up at 5.20am with the worst sore throat and banging headache ever! Meh!
This is just typical seeing as my birthday is only 3 days away! I have been in bed with hot water bottles and extra blankets, plus taking day nurse just to shift this thing. I feel much better than I did this morning thank god, and fingers crossed it was just a 24 hour thing rather than a proper cold/flu.  *fingers crossed*

I finally did my first bit of holiday shopping last night! I has been scouring the internet in search of cheap clothes, and only really checked out last night, I was pleasantly surprised! Everything in their sale section was really good prices! In the end I bought 3 dresses and a belt for £33.99 delivered! I think that's a pretty good bargain considering what I bought!

Darcy Knotted Maxi Dress in Charcoal

Leah Lace Dress in Ivory

Chloe Ruffle Lace Skirt Dress in Ivory

Libby Stud Front Waist Belt in White

As soon as I receive them in the post I will post pictures! By then I should have bought some stuff on the high street too! This weekend coming I will be getting my suitcase out of the attic and start packing it, so exciting!!!

Day 26 - A picture that makes you angry
Finally getting my money back on this!!!
This makes me pretty angry, when you order something (that costs £140), and it arrives damaged! Ridiculous! But ebay is on my side and I can finally get a full refund, once I send it back! :)

Picture Meme - Day 25

My birthday - 4 days
America - 21 days

Well today has been jam packed full of sorting stuff out! I really need to start sorting my room out soon, getting everything tidied away and in order, and find somewhere for my exhibition table to go! At the moment it is just sat in the middle of my room, rather in the way!
I finally have Friday all sorted, going out for a meal with my nearest and dearest! Been a bit stressful having to text loads of people to find out who can come, but I think I finally have it all sorted out! Although I still have Bournemouth to sort out, which is going to be daunting!

I just uploaded another Summer Snapshot book to my Etsy! It is a pink off print book!

This one is an off print as I accidentally printed the front cover on the back! But the inside of the book is the same as the full price ones :)

I recently downloaded an app called Snapeee, and I think it has to be the best purikura app ever! And I don't even think it is designed for that! It has a community element to it, but I haven't followed anyone yet.

I took my cats to the vets this morning, they were not pleased at all. All three of them had been out all night, so when they got home in the morning they were rather tired, however they still put up a fight when trying to put them in their carry cases X_X Augh!
As for the illustration I did yesterday, here it is!

I thought I would show a few photographs of my exhibition with you!

Nearly finished, just need's some text!

Picture Meme - Day 20

The weekend has been rather eventful, I thought I was suffering badly with hey fever, but it turns out I actually have a cold ;-; Boo.
I still stocked up on anti-histamines though, so I shouldn't be suffering with hey fever any time soon, I hope...
So apart from that I haven't been up to much! Going to take down my exhibition tomorrow, sob! This is the official end to University! Can't believe it has been three years now! Where has the time gone? Felt like just the other week that I couldn't see the end of this. Ahh!
Once this cold has shifted I will start doing more work for myself, I did do a small drawing the other day, and it is scanned in as well. It's for the What I Wore Today Flickr community, just need to colour it in, and then upload it to Flickr and my website :)

Picture Meme - Day 18 & 19

Today was my one and only day of invigilating my show, and it wasn't too bad! Started at 10am and then stayed until 1.30pm. The first couple of hours flew by, but then it dragged! Never mind.
It will soon be time to take it all down again, hopefully Monday evening but if not, Tuesday morning. I am working on some artwork at the moment hopefully to be published in the What I Wore Today book! But I need to get a motor on, as the deadline is my birthday, 24th June! Eek! (Two weeks today! ^^)

*Phew* I didnt get a phone call to come and speak to the external examiner, one less thing playing on my mind!
I have the private view of my show tonight, and I am dressing in Memorial Cake! Not wearing it 100% traditional Lolita, as my friend wants me to wear my killer heels as she's wearing hers! but I think they will go well with the dress :)
Heres a polyvore mock-up of my outfit, although my memorial cake is the JSK not OP, also most items are slightly different!

Well today my show is being marked...EEK! I wonder how I have done!? Wont find out until Wednesday as I have an interview with another member of staff tomorrow, where im guessing I have to talk to them about my work and intentions etc. And then I *might* have to go in and chat to the examiner on Wednesday afternoon if he picks me, I hope not though as I dont want to drive all that way just to talk for 10mins, like tomorrow >< Oh well! Well today I placed a cupcake on my stand, here is the lone cupcake: How cute is this cupcake!?
I wrapped it up in cellophane and a tag which I made, and it looks so cute! I said to the teachers that they were allowed to eat it haha!

A very deserved Starbucks breakfast!!! Then afterwards we decided to go to Starbucks for breakfast, and well deserved it was!
