I found a picture of nails like these on tumblr, I clicked on the source (link) obviously, those ones are better than mine but, I really liked them so I thought I'd try it out.

I'm pretty rubbish at painting nails, I have a really unsteady hand.. I liked the way they turned out though! There a bit chipped now, seeing as I've been opening boxes all day at work, but I think that just adds to the effect. I might do them in purple or black next time or something like that..

I should have uploaded this days ago, oops, anyway... As the title says, I have a growing collection of velvet skirts. Not only do I now have my navy blue and my tie-die velvet skirt I now also have a black one and a weird cream/ silver/ gold coloured one too, all thanks to the £1 primark sale.

Blouse is from Cow vintage, gold/ black jumper is from a charity shop. I got the skirt as you know, from primark and the tights are from the Birmingham Rag Market. The shoes are leather converse which I've folded over at the top.. I'm not really fond of the longer ones anymore.

Yesterday when I got back from college I watched The Great British Hairdresser and decided that I very much miss my long hair. I know a lot of you will probably say that I already have long hair, but to me, what I have is only medium length. I used to be able to almost sit on my hair when I was about 15/16 and then I stupidly cut it off to shoulder length because someone said they preferred it shorter. I've been trying to grow it back ever since. It seems to grow so slowly..

I decided to clip in my really horrible synthetic extensions that I bought from a charity shop (they had never been used before) and I really wish my hair was still this long :( I've never worn extensions before, mainly because I know that my hair will eventually grow to that length, I feel like I'd be cheating at having long hair and also I do an awful job of disguising them and making them look natural.. as you can tell lol

I've started parting my hair in the middle.. I think I look weird with a fringe now haha, there is no turning back. I'm also lost without my black lipstick, you can probably tell seeing as I'm wearing it in every photo I've posted recently.

You have probably noticed that I've changed my layout. This time I've gone for something a bit more to do with my current style, which I think is some kind of weird, tacky, gothic kinda look mixed with unicorns, glitter and pink things. The layout looks good on my screen but I have a huge screen so it never seems to look the same on other peoples, so if its a bit weird please tell me so I can try and fix it.

In this outfit I'm wearing a flannel shirt which I bought from a charity shop in the mens section. I bought the dress from a store in the bullring which I think has now closed down, but the label says Gavi Di Gavi Paris. I'm not sure where the belt is from and both my shoes and socks are from Primark.

Top - Charity Shop
Platted Denim Belt - Not sure, I've had it since I was little.
Shorts - Primark, I changed the buttons
Ripped Tights - DIY
Dr Martens - Charity Shop

I've noticed my posts are becoming increasingly shorter text-wise, but I can't really find anything interesting to say. For the past two weeks I've ever had a very long cold, or hayfever, I'm not quite sure, but I think its hayfever. When it rains I stop sneezing for a few days and then when the sun comes out and everything drys up I start to sneeze again.

At college I've been making many many fabric samples. Yesterday my tutor introduced me to a magical machine which I think is called a felting machine, although I could be wrong but that's what it does, it makes felt and other weird and wonderful fabrics. I spent the entire day using different coloured wools and organza, meshing them all together to create some kind of thick but still see through fabric. They're really cool and squishy, they'd make really cool cushions or pillows, but I'm not sure how you'd wash them because they'd probably end up in a huge mushy mess.

I bought my earth top from Youreyeslie at the Clothes Show. It was in the sale, 2 for £10 so I bought this one and another one with a skull on it which I haven't worn yet because its a bit low cut, I think I'll have to find something nice to put under it. I bought the cardigan from oxfam, its super warm despite all the holes! The leggings are from primark and shoes from Urban Outfitters, again, they are practically all I wear. I have decided what I'm buying for my birthday, a giant box of Krispy Kremes!

I'm really sorry I haven't been updating much recently. Over the past few weeks I've had college deadlines, portfolios to make and university interviews. Its also my birthday on Saturday, I'm going to be 18, which is kind of weird, although not weird at all but still very odd. I don't know what colour to have my hair on my birthday, I have pink, purple, orange, green, black, red and blue to choose from! I'm thinking of going for a very odd mixture but I'm still not sure what that mixture is going to be, any suggestions? Ontop of everything, I'm currently doing a project which I have to send off to Uni so they can decide if they want to give me an interview or not. Wish me luck!
