I got my hair did! :D


The 1st photo is from the last time I tried dying my hair and the second is my new hair style. I acquired a trendy new, cool attitude with my new hair, as you can see ;)


ahh THANK YOUUU  pearlsoflux~ this is such a lovely message to receive! 

flattery gets you EVERYWHERE, you made me blush <3 glad you like my glasses ! and indeed my face, you have good taste haha. and i love your blog too (so much classier than mine…wishful sighs) and although i don’t know your face, i am sure you are vvv gorgeous! 

thank you ~ i’m always pleased when my shitty blogging makes people happy. (also it is really nice to hear you like me posting silmarillion stuff bc i am aware my blog is silms-heavy and a lot of people didn’t originally follow me for that (sorry sorry, i feel guilty about that ), so thank you ! sometimes i feel i do not treat such a venerable old book with the respect it deserves, but then i remember what i do to history, and in comparison silms gets off lightly…) 

thanks again, i’ve been down lately, so this was a lovely thing to receive. and rock on yourself <3 xxx


I made a lip scrub! I spotted a mint one in LUSH the other day and really, really wanted it. Unfortunately my lack of monies meant I had to forgo it D:

BUT! They’re surprisingly easy to make. I looked at these two D.I.Y. tutorials and made my own!

I didn’t use honey, though, and I added cinnamon to act as a slight irritant and erstwhile lip plumper. Wooo - KINDA LIKE SCIENCE BUT MORE LIKE MAGIC.

Was feeling kinda low today so I decided to put on some lipstick, let down my hair and take some pictures! Ahhh~ there’s nothing like trying to look pretty for yourself. Gratuitous photos everywhere! ^_^

The last one makes me look like I’m doing a partial JFK impression, but it’s only because I realised that there’s a Horrid Henry book sitting on the window sill in every shot :L

I got my hair did! (Again)

I’m much blonder and have a pastel peach tone running through my groovy locks :D THANK FUCK FOR CREATIVE STUDENTS AND THEIR RIDICULOUSLY LOW PRICES <3

For some reason this hair style really reminds me of Violet from American Horror Story :3

(Please please please let me share her divine sense of style in the next few weeks)

I am one step away from all over blonde!



Aww yissssss, pressin’ flowers with my Victorian powers X3

This batch has been pressed for about 2 &½ weeks and the petals are really delicate. BUT they smell lovely ^_^

It’s the biggest batch I’ve pressed all in one go and it took 3 books to do it. I used the Oscar Wilde book for most of them though.

REMEMBER: Always place flowers you want to press on a few layers of tissue, but not kitchen paper as they tend to indent the petals with any designs pressed into the paper, or the fluid that is draining off of the flowers will drain into the pages of your book. This mostly applies to bigger flowers and more specifically roses as they are densely layered towards the centre and contain a lot of excess moisture.

WOOT FLOWERS *glitter eyes*

Frank Navasky: She fell in love with Generalissimo Franco?!
Kathleen Kelly: Don’t say that…really, we don’t know that.
Frank Navasky: Who else could it have been?! It was probably around 1960 –
Kathleen Kelly: Do you want some popcorn?
Frank Navasky: I can’t believe this! I mean it’s not like he was something normal like a socialist or an anarchist or something…
Kathleen Kelly: It happened in Spain. People do really stupid things in foreign countries.
Frank Navasky: Absolutely! They buy leather jackets for much more than they’re worth, but they don’t fall in love with fascist dictators.

That awkward moment when you’re all dressed up but have nowhere to go beCAUSE YOUR LITTLE BROTHER HAS A CHEST INFECTION AND YOU’RE ON EMERGENCY NURSE DUTIES ALL OF A SUDDEN. One huge downside of living at home:stuff like this. Upside:I pay for nothing I don’t want to pay for.

Missing roqueandrolle (on her birthday night out) & thatflamingcat (back from Edinburgh for this one short weekend) and missing the fucking rave they’re probably having in Whelan’s X( Fml.
