I told myself I wasn't going to buy any more brand, but I've been pondering this dress for a while and when I saw it was still in stock I just had to have it. And I couldn't resist getting the matching muffler to go with it <3 Blouse, bag and shoes I already own but decided whilst I was on Polyvore I may as well go the whole hog and complete the outfit. The blouse actually matches the bag, bad stock pic.

As well as Halloween, today is also my step brother Ben's birthday. I was supposed to be spending the day with him, but feel so spectacularly crap that I had to cancel and have spent the day mooching around my flat instead (after getting up at 2pm). Because of how I've been feeling, I haven't done anything for Halloween. I've just stayed in watching Film4. So far it's been The Others, a film I've wanted to see and not gotten round to until now, and White Noise, a film I used to love when it came out and am now wondering on earth why XD And now The Innocents is just starting.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for me. And hopefully my new outfit won't take too long to arrive <3 Retail therapy is the best therapy.

A dream is a wish your heart makes  

I'm sooo excited for Disneyland! It feels like ages away though, 5 weeks! I'm glad I didn't bother rushing the trip and going in time for Halloween though as I read someone's trip report and this year was poo compared to previous years. Also I might be meeting up with an old friend who works there, I dunno yet, she messaged me on Twitter about it and I emailed her back but nothings set yet, but it'll be cool if I do, I've not seen her in years. I'm already planning what to wear in Disneyland >< I hate my photos from my previous trips because I look so awful, and I'm determined that this time I'll have photos to be proud of.

My Milky Planet skirt finally arrived! I was super upset when I had to sell my OP at the beginning of September but did so in the knowledge that I had ordered the skirt. I ordered it was back in mid June from Starry Candy Box >< Never ordering from them again, even if it was worth the wait, I could of gotten it cheaper on the sales comm by now. Oh well. I've also bought myself a blonde wig, I miss my blonde hair so much and figured this is the next best thing to actually being blonde.

Thoughts and ramblings  
So apparently I don't even bother to turn up to work anymore. I was due to start work today at 6.45am, and I have to get up a 5am to get ready. I get pretty bad insomnia, and 4am was the last time I looked at the clock before I fell asleep. It was obviously a pretty deep sleep, because I woke up at 7.45am, exactly an hour after I was due to start, I freaked out for all of half a second before I though "Oh fuck it" and didn't bother to do anything. It was supposed to be the first day back after my holiday so I'll just make out I thought I wasn't due back until tomorrow.

I'm super thrilled to be able to say that I've got Milky Planet :D By the time I decided I actually really liked the print in pink reservations were already full so I thought it'd be hopeless. Starry Candy Box were supposed to put some MP stock up at 9pm Pacific today so I opened the site up ready before I left it to go to bed, and saw the skirt was already up. So I nabbed it quick. And it looks like I'm gonna win an auction for the OP too, so yay! :D

Other than that I've just spent the time since my last entry trying to get things together for uni. I'm really confused with the bed though, in the list of things it says I'll have in my room it says "3/4 bed". I don't know what the HELL I'm gonna get bedding for a 3/4 bed that looks half decent enough. I'm struggling to find a suitcase I like too. And I can't find anywhere near me that sells A1 portfolios, except Argos who sell the tackiest looking ones I've ever seen and I really don't want to have to resort to it, it doesn't even have a shoulder strap D: I think I might take a day trip into Sheffield next Friday and see if I have any better luck there. Plus I'll be able to visit the DISNEY STORE! ^^ Happy days.

Ugh it's too damn hot! There's just no air! I'm sitting indoors with the fan on me to try and keep cool, I feel so sluggish when the weather is like this. And I'm already sunburnt and had sunstroke so I daren't be outside for long anymore x_x Over the weekend I stupidly managed to fall asleep outside for a few hours, not recommended!

I went on a bit of a splurge recently, I like to think of it as my birthday presents to myself as my birthday is only next week! I bought Innocent World's Pompador JSK, Misty Morning red Tartan JSK from Qutieland (I just love red tartan!), and Moitie's Holy Queen JSK. And I'm still waiting for my BTSSB Wizard of Oz JSK to arrive (which I'm totally gonna wear when I go see Wicked!). I'm so excited I can barely contain myself! It's lovely to currently have the money to spare too.

I've decided I'm going to change my hair colour soon. I adore being blonde and I really love the colour I am now, but it's no longer practical for a number of reasons. Firstly, the obvious one, its expensive to maintain as I have to get it done at a salon and as I'm going to be a student very soon its just not something I'll be able to keep up for long. And secondly, my hair is absolutely fried from two years of constant bleaching. I used to have super healthy hair, now its like straw its so dry and damaged. I'm going to remain blonde for a few more weeks I think, then I'm going to dye it a chocolate brown, I've already bought the dye. It'll be much cheaper doing it myself and going dark again will hopefully nourish it abit.

There's a reservoir just 15 mins walk from where I live, and I really love going up there to just listen to the water and clear my head, its really peaceful and if I close my eyes I can pretend I'm by the sea as the waves sound like the ocean, the water smells slightly salty and there are seagulls flying around there. I was up there today just to cool off in the breeze and felt totally at peace and decided that I'd love love love to live near the sea. I could picture it all in my head, living in a nice little sea side town that isn't terribly touristy and is quite quiet but has good travel connection routes, living in a nice little house by the sea front with a bloke and two dogs :) I actually think that that would be my idea of heaven.

paper faces on parade  


My Masquerade Theater skirt arrived on Friday, I got dressed up today just so I could wear it <3 I've not loved a print like this in a long time, I really want the JSK in black now too. If you wanna see the whole outfit its on my lookbook :)



I've not been feeling great these past few weeks (due to having had a three week period -_- Nothing to worry about but its still mega uncomfortable and frustrating). But anyway, I cheered myself up by buying this darling My Little Pony. I used to LOVE My Little Pony when I was little (which little girl didn't?!) and for once I actually really like the redesign, she's so cute! She gave me such a trip down memory lane that I wanted to buy a Care Bear too, but they didn't have any :(

Oh and I still don't have any glasses after a full two weeks now, which is just adding to my frustrations. My opticians took my glasses off me to be reglazed last Friday, knowing that they were my only pair and I need them badly, and now they've had them over a week ;_; I'm living in a world of constant migraines. And I've not been able to draw which is frustrating me the most, but I have been practising my digital painting skills so its not all bad. Thankfully I can see digitally by zooming in.

It feels really crazy that its very nearly June already. I say it every year, but this year is passing so quickly!

Take those dreams and make them all come true  
ipod

My new iPod finally arrived! :D 
I had to get the one I wanted direct from Apple because I wanted it in red (my favourite colour) and thats an Apple store exclusive colour, so I thought I might as well get it engraved too. I originally wanted it to say "When your heart is in your dream no request is too extreme" but it was one character too long. ONE! I was so irritated. But when I was listening to my Miley Cyrus CD (hush, I like her!) this line popped out at me and I felt it kept the spirit of the Disney quote so went with it. I'm so happy with it!

And I know I should be saving, but I've been pondering it for a while and decided that I just had to reserve BTSSB's new print, "Masquerade Theater"



I reserved the skirt in the red colourway. I just love it so much and I haven't felt like this over a new print in a long time. It reminds me so much of Phantom of the Opera, thats the main reason I love it ♥ Now I just have to wait ages until I atually get it ><

I need this dress. NEED. )

Is that not the best Alice in Wonderland themed item of clothing you've ever seen? (in fact I think its also one of the nicest Bodyline peices I've ever seen!)
