I had to do the stereo-typical mirrored effect on my photo, I had to!
|I thought I'd post this photo for your enjoyment. I have no idea what is happening with my face but I hope it makes you laugh! :s|

Long time, no see? - I'm pretty sure that quite a few recent blog posts have consisted of something along those lines. I know I've been away from the blogging world for the past month or so but I have still been reading and
stalking loving your blogs.
In two weeks time, I will have my first AS level exam and I am so scared about it. I've also seem to have lost the will to live and revise as at the moment, I feel like hibernating under a pile of my revision notes. As tempting as that is, I know I need to get my act together and have even been on three runs this week. THREE! They were also all around the 5K mark (or close enough...) so I am very proud of myself for having the motivation to get out there.
One of the reasons that I haven't blogged much is that, honestly, my outfits haven't been that interesting. I seem to be living in jeans and a variety of t-shirts, but with the sun popping its head out of the clouds, it seems that I'm going to need to whip out the skirts and dresses from my wardrobe. Oh the horror! It has also highlighted my *cough* inadequate selection of wintery, dark-coloured skirts and the lack of dresses in my wardrobe, so I'm going to have a (late) spring clean of my wardrobe and put everything on eBay that I haven't worn in at least the last month or so. I'm going to stock up on the basics and hopefully, own a capsule wardrobe of clothes I can mix-and-match with. Also, due to the vast amount of exercise that I'm doing, I will be fit and ready for summer and be able to do 5K in about 25 minutes.
But then I woke up..!
But that is really what I would like, as much as I am really attached to my floordrobe, I do know that I have too many clothes. And I definitely re-wear a lot of items and ignore others.
However, I'm hopefully creeping out of my cave and dressing for spring/summer with this ensemble. I know that it's still jeans but the top is great for putting me in the mood for the sun. The lace hem just adds that little something to a basic tee in a gorgeous colour. I also rediscovered my old Converse that I've had for ages but then thought I had outgrown, they do fit me even if they do pinch my toes a bit.
I have a few outfit, nail and even a hair posts that I need to post about but I just need to get my head together and upload the photos and write the post. Sometimes blogging seems so easy when you write a few lines, but usually I'm not happy with my post and end up rewriting it a few times.
CURRENTLY... READING: CITY OF LOST SOULS ~ CASSANDRA CLARE. PLAYING: NIGHT VISIONS (ALBUM) ~ IMAGINE DRAGONS & TORCHES (ALBUM) ~ FOSTER THE PEOPLE. BLOGLOVING: ELLIE'S FAVOURITE THINGS. WATCHING: MADE IN CHELSEA. LOVING: THE SUMMERY WEATHER!
(I've just added this feature of what I've been reading, listening to, any blogs I love at the moment, watching and loving as a way to recommend anything I think you might like. What do you think?)
Congratulations if you've read all the way to here - have a virtual hug! *hugs* I'd love it if you would comment if you like these more talkative posts. I'm going to go now because I can't see the screen (I'm going to have fun finding the 'Publish' button) since the cat has shoved her furry butt in my face... Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend and the weather - while it lasts!

Dipped Raw Amethyst Necklace ~ £12.50 ~ Delilah Dust
When I was little (not so long ago), I used to collect lots of precious gemstones and other 'rocks'. I have a massive collection
I found out about Delilah Dust on Instagram and their unique necklaces immediately caught my eye!
This necklace is my favourite piece of jewellery on their website, and is now on my wish list because it's so pretty!
Amethyst is my favourite gemstone because a) it's very sparkly b) it's purple - my favourite colour - and c) do you understand how beautiful and sparkly it is?! I especially love the fact that the stone is dipped in gold or silver, I think it adds another dimension to the raw quality of the gemstone. Personally, I love the colours - purple and gold - together. It's also on a 30 inch chain so it is perfect for accessorising with any outfit!
They also offer free UK delivery!

I hope you've all had an amazing 4-day Easter weekend - full of chocolate, hot cross buns and Easter eggs! (I think, I like food - a lot.) The weather has finally realised that we are now in
March April and the sun has come out of hiding! Although my toes still get quite chilly from sitting down and *ahem* revising all day. Such fun!
My Lent has now ended so I can now eat chocolate! But I have managed to restrain myself, and I haven't gorged myself on chocolate, unless you count that Easter egg - oops!
My nails are also feeling the Easter spirit and I have spent all weekend trying to perfect my nails using the Rio Nail Art Pens that I got for Christmas! I can't rave about them enough, they are fab and very precise when you need the detail. However, I wish I was ambidextrous or good at art as my left hand is a lot better than my right hand. Anyway, I'm really proud of my nail art as I think it's not bad as you can (hopefully) see what I'm trying to depict - the orange blobs on the blue background are carrots, if you're wondering! I also love the colours as they're so bright and really stand out.
I also made some delicious cupcakes using a recipe from Megan's blog called Cupcakes and Converse. You should check out her blog, it has some great reviews and her new layout is so pretty!
I do have a lot of revision to do this holiday for my AS exams - yep, I'm already panicking - and I'm really busy too, going on a French exchange trip to Bordeaux and my D of E Practise Expedition, so I'm not sure if I'll have time to blog but I do have lots of things in mind that I need to write about! So, stay tuned, folks! :)
