hummingbird heartbeat

It's friday all over again, I can't believe how quick this week has went by so I thought I'd give you a little run down of whats been happening dans ma vie! (anyone who can speak french properly please correct my spelling/tense there, haha) 

I gots my hair did.


Girlznight won the 'Scottish Retailer of The Year Award' for Hair and Beauty in Scotland last week :) I am so proud of my mammy and her team there! They rock. So off I went to get my hair cut and coloured for the first time in what seemed like too long. Here's what I went in with...

(excuse the long face, this was meant for a youtube video which I recorded that morning - more on that to come later)

and here's what I came home like :)

(rice crispy square and my new paperchase mug, loves it)

chocolate brown, my blonde flash revitalsed, a wee chop all over (I'm growing it, goddamnit!) and of course a huge ass fringe. I feel so much better, but I'll admit the curtains are going to take a getting used to.

I went for lunch and shopping with the bestie.

Click the cute pic of Jenn above to go to her blog! :) Haha yes I copied her in the fringe department but she loves me so its okay. We ended up getting all nostalgic at Tinderbox and talking about school and the old days. Funnily enough, we didn't speak at school, Jenn was in the year above and all her year HATED meee! I was a geeky little rock chick and its only since we became friends I've found out all the funny stories shes so kindly decided to share with me :p I went out with a boy in her year for a bit and lets just say they ALL had opinions on me haha. Funny how things work out eh? :) Do you have a good old belly laugh when talking about people, and school, and stories from your past? I know we sure do!

I sorted out my next contract before I'm back at the beeb.

and my, it is beautiful.
Here's a little sneaky of the set model we are working from for the show. I cant wait to build and paint these babies!

I felt better, about a lot of stuff.

I feel happy. Happier than I have in a very long time. And settled. I'm no longer on medication for my anxiety so long may this continue ♥

I am getting a hang of living away from home for the first time.

The shopping, the cleaning, the bills, the cat, the organising, the boy! Today I took Millie to the vets, went to sainsburys and came home and had some sushi and a cuppa before I nipped out again. And I just felt so at home. Strange? Simple comforts are undeniably to me what makes a house a home.

I chilled with my baby bro :)

Me, my step mum and Max went for a coffee at a little local tearoom that does homebaking and such. A total hidden gem! All the little old ladies were cooing over him and he quite enjoys the attention :) Heartbreaker in the making here girls.

So all in all it's been a busy week, things have been too'ing and fro'ing in my blog shop - with lots of the items now on ebay instead so click if you'd like a wee look. I got some primark bargains during the week when I met up with the lovely Dom, and all I can say is check out their sale rails because I picked up the most amazing stuff for like 1 and 2 quid each! The carboot sale last sunday was a bit of a flop, maybe I arrived too late or didnt hunt as much as I should have but I was a tad disappointed. So many of yous seem to get such amazing finds when you go! Please, share the trade secrets?

Not quite sure what our plans are yet for the weekend, it's just nice to have my boy back while he's been at work all week! What are you getting upto?

(ps. hummingbird heartbeat is a song off the new Katy Perry album 'Teenage Dream', you need to listen to it if you haven't already, it is awesome!)

    im glad you are super happy now, im hoping to come off my medication soon, stupid stuff! this may sound kinda weird but nobody really talks about the anxiety and medication and stuff on blogs so I am so glad you did. it makes it all seem a bit more normal and far easier to cope with.
    i apoligse got being a total stalker xxx

  3. I am loving the new hair do.
    When it comes to the carboot sales, get there just after it opens and look at everything!
    My best friend and I rarely get a chance to see each other and we are always talking about stories of the past. Sometimes I howl in laughter, sometimes I curl up and cry because I miss the good old days!
    You are awesome, especially with that hair

  11. Your hair looks so cute. Got to love Primark for those sale bargains! I got a blazer for work t'other day for £2! Also love your Paul's Boutique bag; I have the same one but have just retired it as, after about 18 months of love bits are starting to fall off it!

  12. Your new hair is awesome! You def suit a fringe. Ho long are you thinking of growing it? Mine wouldn't grow at all, until I had it chopped to about an inch long and now it grows far too fast for my liking!
