One day in pictures

Seeing as my bf is in NZ and my bff is in BA (Buenos Aires), I thought I'd send them some pics instead of the usual email! Picture heavy of my day yesterday (Monday)

- Woke up. Saw this. Life is not fair. -

- Very dark mornings. Saw this happy panda staring back at a not so happy panda. -

- Scrape scrape scrape -

- Driving in jimjams = best thing ever. Taking it off for work = worst thing ever. -

- Fog ... makes me want to stop & dance in the middle of it -

- Tractors, trucks & slow drivers should not be allowed on the roads before 10am -

- Hat hair -

- Happy chappy in the wall by the toilet sink, always make me smile -

- Home time YAY -

My bf wrote back saying 'did you have an awful day, the only happy picture is the 7 holes in the wall!' ... geez :S I did have a lovely day thanks.

If you've got one day (or many days or every day) in pictures, comment so I can read! Hope all you lovely peeps have had a lovely Monday and Tuesday and everyday!

p/s only ONE. uno. ichi. ein. une. 1. more follower before giveaway time! Thank you all you lovely followers I hope you enjoy reading my random rambles!

Pretty Ruffle dress

I walked into River Island to get a pair of over the knee socks for £7 and somehow I ended up walking out with £78 worth of shopping! HOW? grr ... SALES! (so its okay!!) I never find size 8 in the River Island sale so when I saw heaps of size 8 I grabbed it all and headed to the changing room and somehow they found their way IN TO MY WARDROBE! I promise it's not my fault!

I found this pretty ruffle dress and thought ooh interesting - I really would love all you fashionista's honest opinions! I thought it'd look quite cute with cowboy boots (maybe??) or even the pair of booties pictured!

(Click to enlarge)

One of the problems with living at home is that I have to stuff bags of shopping all in one bag so it doesnt look too bad and sneak it upstairs! But I always get caught boo. Does anyone else have the same problem?

Comment and let me know what you think of the dress! Have you also been shopping in the sales lately and where do you usually shop? Follow on the right with Google or bloglovin' as I'll be posting more purchases this coming week!

P/S Thanks for all your fun comments on this fun post - some of you have crazy imagination lol. Mayonnaise?? HOW? I can definitely see baby in blanket, kidney bean and croissant! But the first thought that came into my head when I saw it was a loopy heart (I try to see hearts in everything lol) but it didn't quite work so I saw a bean. As I looked on, I see a pair of shades. I think its my inner self conveying a message to me by making me see a pair of shades - I WANT TO GO ON A HOLIDAY!

Finally found my camera! Face of Saturday night:

I haven't been out for ages so I was really proud I could still remember night make-up! It's pretty much just black and gold as highlight. I am not that great at make up but am being inspired and learning from various make-up blogs I follow so THANK YOU! Eyelashes are Cheryl Cole ones - really like them as they are different to ones I usually wear! Well I had to peel the lash off the right eye as it was blocking my sight and I had to drive about 2 glad I didn't get pulled over with one side of lashes off and the other side still attached lol

And YES I have my hands on Leopard Print Coat - ohmylife just found out it's now 20% off - NOT FAIR!!!! Anyway I am slightly obsessed with leopard print this season - will be doing a feature on it soon! You will (hopefully) find changes and new features on this blog soon and hope you'll like it even more!

Thank you for all your fun comments on yesterday's post, I hope you had fun! I'll let you know what I saw in tomorrow's post - it'll be a scheduled post so hope it works!!

What are you into this season and do you love leopard prints too? Blog about your leopard print items, would love to see how you wear them!

A new unhealthy obsession...

It's pink. It's great. It's for girls who like nice stuff and it's made in the glamorous USA.

Yep Juicy found her way into my wishlist...I'm surprised at how well I've fended off Juicy up until a visit to Bicester Village with the new Juicy outlet there. The jewellery box itself is enough to make you want to buy something! If you want to see a purchase ... follow this blog on the right and check back this week <3

Are you Juicy & do you have any of their lovely stuff? If so, do share!!

Circle lens

Did anyone (in the UK) catch last night's amazing program called 'Inside Nature's Giant's' the Giant Squid episode?? I've always always always been fascinated by Giant Squid - the fact that noone has actually ever seen one ever!!

Some interesting facts:

- Squids have three hearts!!
- They actually have teeth on their tentacles so if you are caught by one, it would be a slow & painful death. You'd feel every single bite as they literally shred you to pieces :( so make sure you don't go near one. no, don't go near the little ones either!!
- The female give birth to millions of eggs which is held together in a mass and jiggled around with the mother's tentacles - quite a sight really ... and the mommy dies after all her babies are hatched!

If you're fascinated you can watch here!

On another note, since Lady Gaga's Bad Romance video the black circle lens that makes your iris look larger has been really popular especially with Asian girls. I can see why, as it makes you look cute and quite attractive like:

We now live in a world where bigger means better - breast enhancement, penis enlargement, abs implants and even silicone injection to get J-Lo's bum. How ridiculous! But many don't realise how these contact lens can actually be harmful to your eyes if you wear it for too long & not careful with them. They actually restrict oxygen getting into your eyes causing them to be dry and red. New capillaries form on your retina to try to get as much oxygen from the surface thus causing infection! As someone who's had serious eye infections from wearing contact lens and came close to losing my sight, I really hope that those who wear circle lens (or any lens) know exactly what they are doing and only purchase from the opticians and not over the internet!

Mmm looking at the picture below, it reminds me of something ...

... that's it!

Looks the same hey! Besides, anyone else thinks the black circle lens are slightly scary?? I dont want scary pictures on my blog but you can see another scary one here!!

Do you wear contact lens and have you / would you try Circle Lens so your iris would look bigger?

☆ Twinkle twinkle little stars ☆

How I wonder what you are...

A few weeks ago I built up the courage and went to a ballet class after almost 10 years of missing in action. As much as I enjoyed it, it also made me feel a little ... depressed! I felt like a little failure having let go and losing sight of all my glittering dreams & passion from when I was younger! It's almost as if I've betrayed the mini-me.

If I could tell little Jay something now, I'd tell her to not worry and just keep spinning in her little pink tutu.

I'd also tell the 12 year old me to not be so arrogant to think that even if I stopped playing piano then I would get back into it easily because the 23 year old self at present is finding it extremely difficult, annoying and frustrating. If a 12 year old can read a piece of music and make her fingers glide ... surely an older version could as well? I'm gonna keep trying, wish me luck.

Have you any hobbies / talents / dreams that you lost sight of?

P/S Thanks everyone for following I hope you've enjoyed reading my rambles ... only 4 more until a 50-followers giveaway! xxxx

The weather has suddenly gone cold (although there has been some signs of the sun lately). This time last year was a lot warmer & no need for tights just yet! Anyone else hates waking up in the dark & cold? I've had to bring out my cosy Laura Ashley bedspread to keep warm!

I know its a clash of florals I usually use this on plain beddings but its been so cold lately and it's just so snuggly and warm (ah I love sleep!) ... I have to literally peeeeel myself off in the morning!! As you can see mr. patch loves a bit of warmth & schnuggles too!

I've recently moved back home so been trying to unpack things and find a place for them (fitting a whole house into a bedroom is just impossible!) so I'll do a bedroom post soon! This week ... mmm ... check back to find out!! With a lot on my mind recently I've been lazy with outfits & make up & hair :(

Is there something you want/need to do but finding it difficult ie lack of motivation? I find that with myself almost DAILY! need more time / less hours at work?? Also show me your bed / bedroom & comment!! Would love to have a nose ;)

Wednesday, 6 October 2010


today I find myself in a big big HUGE dilemma. Could be life-changing. Could be. Question is ... how do you decide? Actually the above image does not entirely represent the whole truth. Try this:

Excuse the rubbish photoshop job on paint haha

It's gonna be crazy either way so decision should be easy hey but ummm nah.

When you are faced with a big big HUGE dilemma, how do you make the decision?
Draw it out in charts and graphs, pros and cons; or sleep on it? Talk about it to as many people as possible or do you have a conversation with your head instead? I might go and have the longest shower I've ever had in my life now...One thing I know for sure is there is never a wrong decision.

On a lighter note ...

How very true. My boyfriend (who is umm almost 5 years older than me) have no idea how to operate the washing machine. You know its true honey if you're reading this.

My frustration...

As mentioned in yesterday's post, as much as I loved my new hair colour ... I was slightly annoyed with it!

Remember from this post I mentioned I finally got my hands on Mega Dango (Mega bun) from Japan??? Well the colour matched PERFECTLY...until yesterday! Let me explain further in pictures.

I've wanted big fluffy hair for a while now so I can create big fluffy cute hair buns like this:

and this:

And since it has taken so long for my hair to grow and most Japanese rely on extensions / fake hair to help create the fluffiness anyway, I was really pleased with my purchase. But now the colour does not match...

... I am not a happy bunny.

Comment below and/or show me your cute face you pull when you're not happy to make me smile again!

p/s Let me know if you are interested in Mega Dango and I'll write a review on it! xxx

OOTD & new hair colour!

Why does the evening always go so quickly and the day so slowly?? Rarr :(
Anyway, outfit of the day:

Can't go wrong with a £3 dress from reduction line in Primark! Love that it's versatile and will go with practically anything!! Also the fact it is slightly vintagey with the A-line skirt bit. It would look great with cute white lace ankle socks & shoes!

New colour which is a couple shades lighter ... love it but is a little bit annoying - I'll explain all tomorrow! This week will have more skin care & outfits post! Keep checking back and if you're reading this and have never commented, leave some ♥ nowww! Remember you can follow me by clicking on 'follow' on the right with google or bloglovin. and do follow as I'll have a little giveaway when the numbers reach 50!

Nighty night! xx
