Lace Dress// New Look 

So thought I'd post on Wednesday I did a bit of shopping to cheer me up about giving up the kitten. I got this lace dress (left) and its something I would have never picked ever, my boyfriend actually said to me why don't you try it on. So I did and I loved it, I love the way it makes me feel like a princess or just very girly. I'm not one for girly things but I'm getting there, in fact I was quite tomboy-ish growing up as I hung out with mainly guys. Anyway apart from this dress, I also got a learn Japanese book and I got some more gel eyeliner, I gave my previous one to my mum as she liked it so much.

Onto today, it was a normal explore town and then go grocery shopping day, so we did our usual visit oxfam charity shop and I found this little gem hidden amongst old lady style clothes. It is a Ted Baker dress that should have been £30 in the Ted Baker sale it seemed (still had tags on) and I got it for a mere £10. I think its perfect to wear to graduation.

 So this is going to be a sad post, but I need to get it out of my system. In a previous post I mentioned re-homing our kitten. Whilst we only had him three weeks, it hurt so bad when I let him go. He has gone to a lovely family, a woman with a small child. So that child will love him, like I did with my previous cat. I had her for 17 years and grew up with her, I can only hope the little girl does t he same and has the same connection I do with animals. Any cat I see I immediately want to look after it, I feel like I have a lovely connection with them but now I feel lonely and kind of empty. My boyfriend has tried to cheer me up by giving me one of my birthday presents early but its going to take me a while to fill the void. I guess the only thing left for me to worry about is getting a job so hopefully that will soon happen and I can fill the gap by being busy.

Hair change

 So last night, I thought I'm bored of red hair and its upkeep. I picked out a 'Bittersweet Chocolate' colour, thinking it'd come of chocolate brown. However what I actually ended up with is Black hair, I'm not sure how I feel about it but maybe I'll grow to like it. My boyfriend says it frames my face and makes me look slimmer but I'm not sure.

I feel like my whole wardrobe and make up routine will have to change due to getting a much darker colour, and the majority of my wardrobe is black, so don't really want to look like a goth, not that there is anything wrong with that.

I'm going to relax now.

Lazy day

My slice 
So today has consisted of me basically being lazy in my pjs, I even woke up at 11am which is pretty late for me now. 

I made breakfast and looked outside to see it raining and blowing up a gale, so it was decided that it was a lazy day and I haven't really moved far from the bed apart from to get drinks and food. 

Good news though, I got a call today and someone might be willing to re-home the kitten. So that might be another thing less to worry about and then all I'd need to stop worrying is a job which would be gladly welcomed.

I decided after dinner that I wanted something sweet but I didn't want to trek outside to the shop to get some chocolate or something. So I used up the lemon curd that one of my boyfriend's housemates left when they moved out and made a lemon curd victoria sponge. It's quite tasty but at 468 calories it's going to have to be a treat and not a regular thing. 

Tomorrow, I have to do boring things like grocery shopping and general errands but hopefully the farmers market will be on and my tea lady will be there, she hasn't been for the past few weeks which makes me sad she sells lovely loose tea blends. 
Full cake

New layout // Ramblings

Drinks with Will 
 So I've gotten inspiration for blogging again. I changed my layout so it seems fresh and new. Hmm so last time I updated me and my boyfriend had gone to see florence and the machine so that was in March.

It's now May so what did I do in between those months, basically I did my dissertation, carried on looking for jobs, entered GradEx which is a graduate exhibition which occasionally helps students get jobs; unfortunately I got nothing. I had an interview that day too but I didn't get the job.

I also went home to see my mum and family and well we didn't do a lot just ate out a lot and did a little bit of shopping and went drinking, I drank far too much as per usual.

Now we're up to date, this week has comprised of house viewings, one which has been successful so me and my boyfriend will have a place to live next year. However that means the pressure to get a job is really on, but I am trying my hardest.
We've also been swimming twice in a week and we're going to make it a regular thing like twice a week to get healthy, although I've been healthy eating and such anyway to try and lose a stone I've somehow put on. 
After swimming today we went to the pub, had a healthy chicken burger and salad although Will had chips haha and soft drinks pictured above. 

Then, because of the bad weather we went to the supermarket to get some hot chocolate that is what rainy days call for. So I went and showered to get the chlorine off me and now I'm relaxing with a hot chocolate. 

I also forgot to mention we have a kitten, but unfortunately we have to get rid of him for numerous reasons, the number one being he's too expensive and a little bit violent and I have a condition that if I have even the tiniest cut that I can have an epileptic fit. So I'm going to finish my hot chocolate and enjoy my night on the internet whilst in my pjs. 

My owl pjs.
