this post is quite delayed, as i've been absent from the interweb world for about 3 days now - due to festivals (photos of which will be up here in the next few days hopefully, as soon as everyone's go up on that dreaded social networking site) & computer incompetance.
my friend had a eurovision song contest gathering last saturday & we all watched it together. if you watched it, you may have seen that the united kingdom came rather embarrassingly last, with only dix poit. but i was dressed as france, & they did rather well!
i was pretty pleased with my france inspired outfit actually, basically it's just nautical clothing with eiffel tower adorned accessories.
i actually love any excuse to dress up, fancy dress especially. i never had many dressing up clothes as a kid, which i think is why i adore it so much as an "adult".
the lighting in my room is terrible (curse you dim lampshades and energy saving lightbulbs!) so i apologise for the bad photographs. of course, i had to have an obligatory pose with my eiffel tower souvenir - £1 from a charity shops, thank you very much!
i really love the way the gold of this neckalce goes with the yellow fleur de lises (spelling fail), well in my head it does anyway! i thought the gingham mismatch looked pretty cute too, i do love a spot of gingham, perhaps because it reminds me of my first school days? without getting too lolita about it, obviously.
where would a good french outfit be without a curly moustache, i ask you? nowhere, that's where. a guy in the year above me has this tattooed on his finger, which i think is insanely cool! i'd love to get a quirky tattoo like this, even though hand tattoos are supposed to be unbelievably excruciating, & they fade a lot too apparently.
also - i don't know why this important, but it felt worth mentioning - this may be one of the only photos on here where i am actually wearing make up, shocker!
bonjour to you all (and i mean this in the literal sense), i hope you're all having lovely days wherever you are - and those of you with exams like me, i wish you much luck! i should be revising right now actually, but sadly i fall victim to a lot of procrastination these days! i've taken to doing revision in half hour shifts, & taking 10 minutes reading breaks, but often i get very distracted. i finished reading the hotel new hampshire by john irving this morning, & i must say i didn't quite know what to make of it, it was very strange - has anybody else read it?
