Random Sunday thoughts.
♥ I dyed my hair! This is kind of old news if you follow me on twitter as I posted the picture there a couple of nights ago but I thought I would mention it for those of you who haven't seen it! It was supposed to come out black but it just matched my roots with the ends of my hair, which isn't all bad. I used the new "colour blend foam" by Nice n Easy. I expected that a foam would be much messier than normal hair dye but it was actually very simple. I'm considering going a shade or two darker but not quite yet!
♥ Today I had plans to go to the city today but my plans always seem to change at the last minute and here I am blogging instead! I have been feeling a little off lately and was hoping some shopping would lift my mood - but everything happens for a reason (see below!) The picture above is one of my favorite pictures that I have taken in Dublin. I'm not sure why exactly, and from a photographers point of view its definitely nothing special.. but there's something about that view that keeps me coming back to the very same spot.
♥ Its almost certain that i'll be moving house soon! It sounds rather silly to some people, especially if you don't believe in the paranormal, but i'm convinced the house I currently live in is haunted! I have heard from many people that all of the houses here are built on a very old graveyard which may explain it. Also, there is a newer graveyard that is visible from the front of my house which is quite eerie too. Not too long ago, I woke in the middle of the night and seen what looked like the shape of a lady standing bent over my bed, just watching me. We had a guest over once and he swears there was a thin lady with very long hair sitting on the bed when he walked past another room! That's not the only reason for moving although its part of it. The "new" house needs some work so it will be a couple of weeks before we can move. I'm looking forward to having a new bedroom to decorate, although I need to start saving! I can't decide if I want white or pink walls, or maybe three white and one pink wall.. that might look a bit ridiculous but I plan to have white furniture and don't want my room to resemble a psychiatric hospital either!
♥ I attempted to make pizza and garlic bread and failed miserably. The garlic bread was delicious but major fail on the pizza! I had no mozzarella cheese and came up with the rather genius idea to use cheddar instead (I forgot to take pictures of the pizza after cooking it!) I love cheese and cheddar is one of my favorites so how bad can it be, right? Disgusting (!) - it tasted like smelly feet had melted into the top of the pizza! The sauce was quite nice though, I don't even remember what I used to make it. Tomato, extra virgin olive oil and every spice we had in the kitchen, I got a bit carried away feeling like Jamie Oliver and added a bit of everything to the mixture. I think I will stick to making my grilled cheese sandwiches and stuffed roasted peppers for a little while longer.
♥ I used cheap foot cream (..because I spent all of my money in Primark, bad!) and I think I had some kind of ~allergic reaction~ to it. The tops of my feet are very dry and feel rough, i'm sitting here with Soap and Glory's "righteous butter" layered on, hoping it will fix them up soon! I can't wait until summer, then I can wear sandals and paint my toenails new colors every day. Its just not quite as fun to spend twenty minutes painting your nails then cover them up!
♥ I still can't take my eyes off Awears winter lookbook. I received it two months ago but I still love the pictures. I want to be the girl wearing all of those clothes! If only my budget would allow.
♥ The lovely Victoria of vipxo featured me on her "lookbook of the week" post today. Her blog is lovely and definitely worth a read. I have been following it for months and its an honor to be featured on there! So hello to all of my new followers who found my little blog via Victoria!
