Where have I been?

Hello lovelies? It's been a while I know :) Life has sort of ceased to exist whilst my interviews for GTP places have been rolling in ... I got very stressed indeed and have spent most of my evenings collapsing in an exhausted heap and just crying from the stress of it all. But never fear - 8 days until my interviews and 21 days until I find out if I have a school placement :) And despite the stress of it all, I'm rather happy and content.

We've spent the last few days just resting and relaxing - important things to do from time to time. And cleaning - soooo much cleaning. Just trying to get the house prepared for the possibility of moving in a few months.

And, as you can see above, I got my hair cut.... short. What do you think?

I hope you're all well - I'll be updating a little more once this whole stress inducing process is over I imagine :)

Love xx

I've made myself a new skirt :)

Hello lovelies!

I hope you're enjoying yet another lovely day :) This morning I decided to raid my fabric stash and make myself a new skirt. I had two long piece of beautiful material that were begging to be made into a skirt, albeit a slightly odd one :) Here's what I made:

I added the green ribbon a)to keep it up and b) to add an optional splash of colour. I only have green ribbon in the house but I might change it to a pretty deep red when I can get to into town :)

Not too bad for 30 minutes sewing don't you think?

Hair Cut Quandry

Hello lovelies!

I don't know about you, but when it feels like summer's coming, all I want to do is get a hair cut! I get my hair cut pretty infrequently - maybe 2 or 3 times a year most of the time, and for the past few years, my hairstyle has been pretty much the same. Below shoulder length, side fringe or full fringe with varying degrees of choppyness depending on how close it is to my wedding.

However, after umpteen years of the same hair style, I'm thinking of a change - maybe some sort of bob? I'm not really sure. I'd love it if you could help me work out it (especially since you were all so awesome at giving me some amazing clothes suggestions a while back - you're all much better at this sort of thing than me). To help you with the process, I'm going to show you a really terrifying picture of my naked face to help you get an idea of my face shape (also, answers on a postcard for what kind of shape it is - the closest we've come is sqoval.... like a square oval).

*shudders* There's my scary naked face for you. Sorry about the eyebrows. Also - I do have a chin.... photobooth just chose to make it look like my neck instead.

Here's the sort of thing I'm thinking of but I'm open to being told "Don't do it - you'll look like a fat tomato" and being given alternatives :D

Thanks in advance for being awesome - you guys rock my world <3 xx

PS If you live in York (or nearby) please feel free to recommend me a hairdresser as well - I've never quite managed to settle on one :/
