One of those ''pulling my hair out'' days.
I stopped and thought for a moment earlier, long and hard, about just what was eating me and for the life of me I could not figure out what it was. If there was anything...
My moods haven't been great since Christmas. I'm finding it extremely hard to keep a hold of myself and my ups and downs are the most extreme they've been in a few years. I'm sure my twitter feed is a rollercoaster read for a few people at the moment.
Today was the day I learned to stop and really think about the good and lucky things that have happened me recently and this is what todays post is about.
I felt in a funk. With everything. Clothes and my hair mainly. I'm at that horrible ''in between sizes'' stage and the size I was wearing is now too big on bottom but the next size down doesn't quite fit comfortably yet. Probably why you're seeing a lot of dresses right now, trousers are hard work for me at the best of times :S
Luckily enough my Mother came bearing lots of clothes gifts. Little bits and pieces she's been squirrelling away for me, bless her cotton socks!
This gorgeous little top is from Next but my mum tracked it down on Ebay - such a find! Now! If it had have just been the flowery bit it wouldn't have appealed BUT the polka dot bow and cuff lining - just cute!! It's already one of my favourites and I only got it last night.
My mother took even more measures to cheer me up today...
I got my hair trimmed... Well, I can only really say trimmed. It's had a lot of thickness taken out of it and it's been layered a bit more but that's about the height of it. At least it feels a lot lighter on my head and it's sitting better (for the moment). I just got my usual ''dry cut'' as I like to style my own hair (you can never get it salon same anyway)
I used pinks today as I felt I needed the lift lol I find it nice and fresh looking (when I'm in the right mood!) which gave me a great excuse to try out a new lipstick which was sent to me by a friend, a twitter friend that I hope to meet one day! The kindest soul she is too ;) Jacinta is one hell of a woman. And she sent me a range of Essence goodies! So spoiled me! She has a brilliant blog which you should take a moment to check out Makeup to Make You Feel Good.
So today I wore the lipstick Jacinta had sent me and I love it!
by Essence: Shade 33: Glam Girl
Not usually a fan of the pinker shades, this particular lipstick is more a gloss and it has glitter pigments in it.
It's great for day wear and I reckon it would look great over a slash of colour lipstick for high glitter gloss heading out, if I ever did ;)
OH! before I forget :O
I wanted to take this opportunity to show you the beautiful name necklace I won in a recent giveaway:
Lovely girl and such skill! She also makes beautiful hair garlands that I just *have* to get my hands on!
And so, that, my friends, was Wednesday. A day that started so horribly but thanks to some lovely people I've met and family that spoil me ;) it really did turn right around.
Still glad to see the back of it though!
