Friday feeling.

Goodbye lovely little paintshop :) See you on monday! I got my grad yearbook picture taken by these sinks today by one of the technicians and his canon slr (with the biggest lens I have ever seen) Shall I unveil it to you soon? Perhaps ;)


My weekend is consisting of work tonight and tomorow, seeing my lovely boy and going to the cinema to watch the new Studio Ghibli/Disney film Ponyo on the cliff by the sea. I have a few projects in and out of uni going on at the moment, everything felt a bit up in the air today but I now have an array of poly pockets and highlighted pages in my bag, so Im feeling much more organised! I hate feeling not in control of what Im doing :( It makes me anxious and panicky and I really dont like it. Some people are really making me feel strange right now. I dont like trying to make sense of other peoples actions and emotions, but Im always too sensitive to ignore it. Why can't I just be honest and let a person know when theyre bothering me? Hmm. A project I worked on a while back, doing some miniature scenic art, was an advert competition for Kodak and Barclays Bank. Mind I showed you all the wee link to the vimeo page? Well guess what, it got through to the finals in London :) Pretty chuffed! Here are a few production stills (I bored you with some more a while back)





So fingers crossed that we do well in the final. On a completely different note, I thought I would share with yous that I have been fake tan free for the past month and a bit! Haha I sound like a right addict :) But I was beginning to get fed up of the stink, and the hassle, and the stained clothes. My boyfriend didnt like it too much either :( I was a regular tanner, and ultimately I was just covering up the fact that I felt self concious about my body, as I think most girls know that sometimes bronzed skin just makes you feel that bit more slim. It too a bit of a kick up the arse for me to realise that I should feel better about my body and go about it in a more positive way. So, instead of slapping on the tan, I have been eating healthier, drinking more water, walking more and getting at least 7 hours sleep at night. The result: I feel so much bloody better! I've lost quite a bit of weight, and Im not bothered about being pale - my clothes look fine with pale skin and my makeup actually sits nicer. So heres a wee posery pic of me and my peely wally skin and minimal makeup :)


If I keep it up then I might treat myself to some new makeup on payday, and maybe a nice dress for my night out soon with my good friend gemma and our pal rea. Money's tight because Im constantly saving for Europe and we need to book our flights soon, but I feel triumphant for overcoming the whole fake tan malarkey, it may seem trivial to some folk but for me, well its an achievement :) I hope everyone has a nice weekend whatever their upto, wether is working or playing or both. Muchos love ♥

  1. I love that first pic of the paint room, it's so neat! That's one I would definetly hang up on my insp wall for some inspiration!

    I used to tan too to make myself look thinner, I got lazy about going and paranoid about skin cancer. So I died my hair red and went with the pale look. LOL

    I think you are beautiful! very pretty pic of yoU! :)

  10. Oh, I am glad you kicked the tan! You look beautiful - so natural and fresh faced. I've never been a tanner and am naturally very pale. Welcome to the club! :)

  11. Well for whats its worth.. you look lovely without fake tan! Being naturally dark skinned, I obviously haven't felt the pressures of feeling bronzed or whatever, But I can imagine I'd feel the same. You look great :) ♥
