Let me know in the comments below.
But no more. I am going to start doing things and living my dream and achieving my goals.
Moving to London is the first step in all that and hopefully it will be all uphill from there. I can leave all the shit behind in Ireland and be done with it.
Even though this lad is three years younger than me I have always been too in awe of him and nervous to let him know how much he inspires me. Today I sucked it up and told him. It went much better than I ever imagined it could.
I guess what I am saying is suck it up and follow your dreams, take risks. Say what you want to say, it may not go down well but you said it. It’s better than playing games, be straight out and upfront. It’s refreshing.
I am also willing to do some advising for people. For this you will have to email me your sizes and a full length photo to email@example.com 😀
I am 5’4″ and weight between 11 and 12 stone. I have 32DD boobs, but I haven’t gotten measured in about a year. I have wide hips and a bit of a butt and I carry most of my weight on my tummy and upper arms. I normally wear a size 12 in a top and a 12 or 14 in a bottoms.
Jeans & Trousers
I tend to just wear skater skirts, high waisted skater skirts. My favourite skirt is a skater skirt I got in Urban Outfitters about 5 years ago if not more and by some miracle it still fits me. It has a panel on the waist with button detailing and it is just really flattering when it is on. I normally just stick to black as it is flattering but my skirts will always stop just before my knees and are teamed with black tights and low heeled ankle boots.
Stay away from dresses with zips. Unless they are a generous size 12 they zips just do not close. I wouldn’t normally go a size up on a dress unless I really had to because they don’t fit as well then or need alterations.
I also try to wear dresses that have a little cap sleeve to hide my hideous bingo wings.
When I wear tight tops I try to get them with a bit of peplum at the end but if that fails I buy them in a V neck so that they draw attention to my cleavage rather than my tummy. It normally seems to work. I would sometimes wear a baggy waterfall style cardigan over them if I was having a particularly un-confident day.
I think I have covered most of the basics for the moment. If there is anything you want to ask please do and I will answer it as best I can.
I have just heard of this company that makes organic beauty products called Wapo. They are Irish and really reasonably priced as well as doing free delivery in Ireland. I can’t afford to buy any of their items to try out as all my money is going towards London at the moment. But I will hopefully be investing in their Bia Beauty Skin Superfood as a treat in a few weeks as it is looking like my ideal product, I will definitely review it and let you all know what I think whenever I do get the money together 😀
Let me know what you think. I will try to upload videos as often as possible. Though with the time it takes my MacBook to import and process them I don’t know how likely that is. I promise I will try though.
I’m sorry if this is not what you all like to read on my blog, but remember it is my blog and I can post what I want so…
All my life growing up I was extremely close to my grandparents. When my grandfather passed away I became even closer to my grandmother. I used to stay in her house every weekend and anytime I had time of school. Once I hit my teens I got to the stage where I hated my parents, saw them as the enemy and ended up spending more and more time with my nana.
A little more than three years ago my nana got sick and moved into my house so we could take care of her. She never left our house. Her condition deteriorated and my nana was moved to a hospice where she passed away in the early hours of October 14th.
Life after that was hard. I had only been in college about a month at that time and I really didn’t want to go back. While my nana was in the hospice my library books from UCD went overdue. I rang the college and explained the situation and they told me I HAD to bring back the books which of course I didn’t appreciate.
I really and truly didn’t want to go back to college. I think that really affected me going to college and my attendance. I just wanted to leave… I did get through the year and I passed, I did quite well actually, but I just couldn’t face the social side of it. After my nana died I actually started becoming quite anxious in social situations. Something I had never done before… I was always quite confident before. I still appeared and do appear confident but now I over think things in advanced, I get sweaty palms, knots in my tummy all in advance of getting to something.
Now it’s time to all talk about how amazing I am 😛
In the past three years, bar being depressed, drinking alot and having my heart broken, I have achieved alot.
Lets start from the start. At the start of first year I ballsed up and modeled in a fashion show. This led to a lovely three year stint with the UCD Fashion and Design Society, the final year of which I was the Head of Hair. Something I am very proud of.
I also managed to finish first year with flying colours (bar that one class I had to compensate).
Third year came along and with it came my position as head of hair. And some new friends. While I still had all my friends that I had since first year our group had definitely expanded. There were so many of us now. And of course we all had our separate friends. I met two of my closest friends that year. Unfortunately I am only in touch with one but between her and Ciara I have all the best friends I need.
Oh and get this, I graduated. Not with Ciara because of how UCD arranged it but we got to party together so it’s all okay.
In the past three years I have grown up so much, and I wonder if that would have happened had my nana still been alive. But that is something we can’t know. There is no need to dwell on ifs and buts but without her I would not be the person I am today.
I will see you all tomorrow. I think I will be doing a nail polish review.
And as always don’t forget to enter my giveaway for an Adventure Time themed Christmas jumper here.
All my love,
Anyway like my charity shopping post this has been sitting in my draft pile for a while. It’s something I want to write about but the main focus of this post is not the movie we saw but the circumstances we saw them under are what I am chatting about because I recommend them to everyone!
The next movie they have on offer is The Heat on the 17th of October.
You can check out their site here.
See you all tomorrow,
