Sunday Summary #15

April 13, 2014

There's been a lot going on this week, let me take you through it!

I went on a little road trip to Birmingham earlier this week, you can see my vlog here. I also got my nose pierced while we were there; something I've wanted to do for a long time but I'm still not 100% on the ring. Like any piercing I worry it won't heal well but I'm gonna keep an eye on it and I really hope it doesn't have any issues so I can switch to a little silver ring in 6 weeks time.

I wore false eyelashes for the first time this week! I know, a blogger who's never worn false eyelashes - madness! I've always been a bit funny about trying to apply them myself. Being one of those clumsy types, putting glue near my eyes has never seemed like a good idea. I think I might be more willing to give it a go after how nice they looked and ND Make Up did a fab job! I'll write up a full post on the event I attended at the weekend but it was lovely to meet some new faces and be back at a local event, especially one leading up to something as exciting as Newcastle Fashion Week!

Today is my baby sister's 18th birthday, something I still can't fully come to terms with, as you may have noticed by the 'baby sister' reference. There's days when I still forget I'm 21! It's just strange because I remember when we were both little and would play with toys in the garden. I even remember the day she was born, pretty clearly too! She'll always be my baby sister, despite how old she is and I hope she's had a great day, not that I imagine she reads my blog...

Watching: Game Of Thrones of course, as season 4 has arrived! My girl crush on Emilia Clarke has returned too, why can't I look like her and have dragons? Not fair!

Listening: Manchester Orchestra live in Birmingham has to be one of the highlights of the week. They were so good live, damn I love some beefy guitars!

Eating: Possibly the best pancakes for breakfast with my favourite person (yeah, I'm a soppy one) I'm actually going to do a full post on my little visit to Birmingham, it should be up next week!

Wearing: My New Balance 410s have become my go-to shoes. So comfy and I love the burgundy shade!

  1. Ooh love the piercing! I am so tempted to get one but I just don't want it to hurt too much!!

    1. Thanks! It actually didn't hurt to get pierced, it was just a bit painful when he was fitting the ring.

  2. I am with you with the girl crush on Emilia Clarke, she is so perfect! The nose ring looks so nice, I've wanted a nose stud for about 3 years but am still scared I'll change my mind. xx

    1. Isn't she?! You could always get it done and if you don't like it, it's easy enough to get it taken out. That's what I like about piercings, they never have to be permanent :)


I really appreciate your feedback in the comments and I read every one! I'll try to reply to each one where relevant.
