i have super sweet skills
..in spilling tea all over the floor. there is never a better a time to use copious amounts of carpet foam than at a quarter to one in the morning!
oh, this is deeply troubling.– stephen fry, struggling to piece together flatpack ikea furniture.

since i am so blissfully free right now, i’d love some questions to answer! whether you just want to know something about me or ask for a bit of sisterly advice on something that’s been worrying you, hit me up. ♥
so glad i don't have exams next month!
okay, so we have a few more in summer than other people - but it means that a “productive day” for me right now involves training my pokémon, making yummy meals, doing a spot of yoga and drinking about ten mugs of tea. no complaints there! ♥
there's this lady we vaguely know
she’s some relation of ours, but we’ve barely ever seen her - she breeds those silly little white bichon frise dogs and enters them in dog shows like crufts. every single christmas we get a card from her containing the latest photographs of her prized dogs in their silly little show-outfits and bow ties, looks of blissful empty-headedness on their fluffy faces from years of inbreeding....
my fingers really hurt from strumming too much.
lovely little haul!
a handful of my sweet gifts this year! soap & glory cosmetics, pretty pens, cath kidston make-up bag and warm socks, a cute trinket tin and a photoframe with a cupcake picture in (which my mum put together as a decoration for my room). i also received a bit of money, a couple of gift cards, pink hiking socks, two uni course books, chocolates.. and a gorgeous yamaha acoustic guitar!...

happy hybrid winter holidaaay! ♥
it can't be winter!
in cardiff last week you couldn’t step out of the house without nearly freezing to death, no matter what you wore - but today when i went to town with my mum, we didn’t even need coats! the sun was all shiny and warm, and temperatures were at the kind of level we had in october. very weird indeed for the shortest day of the year! but i’m definitely not complaining about the lack...

i am a top daughter
just tidied, cleaned & vacuumed the whole house for my parents, and am cooking a massive spicy bolognese tonight for my dad’s birthday! i love making my fam happy. ♥
kim jong-il, bin laden and gaddafi all died this...
some fun facts about the late dictator: his birth was apparently prophesied by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow (right across the sky). his all-time favourite films included rambo, friday the 13th, godzilla and “the eternal bosom of hot love”. he spread a legend that he could control the weather with his moods. also, i’ve just realised those three dictators all died...
just got troll'd.. by myself
i haven’t been wearing my contact lenses for the last three months, and just got a new batch sent through. i put some in yesterday and accidentally wore them to bed.. so i woke up this morning thinking my eyesight had been cured magically overnight and got all excited for a minute. fail! :’)
type "let it snow" into google. ❄
tumblcakes replied to your link: check out my photography portfolio! Have you got a Flickr at all? i’ve had a flickr account for ages, but i’ve only just uploaded anything to it! it’s just for my best work: click here! c: ♥
mum keeps sneakily scrambling my rubik's cube
and spending ages making it “really scrambled” because she thinks that makes it harder to solve. OH MAMMY, YOU CRAZY. i still need to beat my record of sixty-six seconds! i am enjoying boredom so much right now, it’s honestly a luxury. ♥

when you go to have another swig of tea..
..and there isn’t any left in the mug because you forgot you drank it all. mug: TROLOLOLOLOL
it actually feels like the end of the world is nigh. the sound of impending doom is rattling the windows, and the hail-snow is probably causing total carnage outside.. ZEUS HAVE MERCY! actually, don’t. this is really fun.
it's beginning to look a lot like christmas
my fairy lights are on, the prezzies are wrapped, mornings have been crisp and frosty, and i’ll be home in less than a week for cosy times with my family! now all we need is a sprinkling of snow.. ♥
what women "should" be
i see countless posts about how women “should” be curvaceous, how they’re beautiful when they’re “bigger”, how being able to see a girl’s hip/shoulder bones is “wrong”, and so on - i’m sure you’ve seen it all, too. but i want to ask.. does that mean girls who can’t help not being curvy, who find it hard to put on weight and...
oh, what a night~
celebrations for chelsea’s no-longer-a-teenager-crikey-where-did-time-go event were absolutely wunderbar! i’m nursing a bit of a tequila/whiskey/cocktail/cider/malibu/vodka hangover today (only spent fifteen quid - bargain), but i still managed to get the rest of my christmas shopping done and cleaned the entire house - and i possibly had the best wake-up alarm ever this morning. ♥

just pulled an all-nighter
i feel absolutely gross from lack of sleep and sitting in the same position for almost twenty-four hours in the study centre with my friend emma, but it was so worth it! main assignment: done and dusted to an epic standard. it was almost like a cute little earth science sleepover, since other people from our course were camping in there to get work done as well. now i can relax a little before my...
finally saw 'interview with the vampire' last...
how did it take me so long to watch such a classic? now that’s what i call a vampire film (and book - thank you, anne rice)! if you’ve never seen it, please, please do. nerve-thrilling and spine-chilling. ♥
night of the living wardrobe
so, living in a cheap student house, you expect the occasional flaw.. finding the odd little spot of mould in the corner of my room the first time was disgusting, but after a bit of cleaning it seemed to be okay. it’s been a few months since we moved in, and along with the winter rain has come more and more damp. i bought a dehumidifier to try to keep my room nice and dry to avoid any more...

friday night feverrr
i love friday nights; not because i go out clubbing, oh no (friday’s not really a student night anyway) - it’s the brilliant tv shows that i get to snuggle down in bed and catch up on, with the cosy knowledge that i can have a lie-in in the morning! so, QI, live at the apollo, russell howard & sir david attenborough - amaze & amuse me. ♥
i’ve done a bit of latin in my time.. but i can control it.– eddie izzard ♥

i bought myself some of that delicious-smelling cocoa-butter formula hand cream today, to soothe the remnants of my burn and to banish the dry skin that often comes with cold weather; and guys, it’s amazing. i’ve only applied it twice today and my hands (and feet - you can use it on any dry skin) are still as soft as a baby’s arse. definitely getting the full-body cream so i can...
