This Weekend...

Thought I'd share with you a summary of my weekend:

1) I dyed my hair 'brown' which turned out slightly darker than i hoped. To be fair, I did use 'Deep Brown-Black', but i had blonde hair before, so...
...anyway, I used John Frieda Precision Foam Colour, after hearing some good reviews about it. Let me tell you two things about it: 1) The hair colour chart on the side lies. 2) The conditioner that comes with it makes you hair really soft, and there is enough for quite a few uses! Woop!

2) My 'Meat is Murder' top came in the post on Saturday!! Yey!!

3) I got a new hairbrush. I've alway wanted one like this :)

4) Songs I'm listening too:

Is it a bird? is it a plane?...

...No, it's a mug.
But it looks like a camera lens! How genius!
This little camouflaged mug even has a lens cap...

...And they are both amazingly detailed, and have stainless steel linings.


It comes in two varieties: 'Nikon' (which actually extends!) and 'Canon'... what very suitable names...
As a camera geek myself, I would love one (my birthday is in April, by the way) but seriously, even if you have never seen a camera in your life, how could you resist it?!
You can buy it at Photojojo by clicking here.

Nottingham's Not Ready Yet...

So, on Sunday I went into Nottingham with my mum and dad. The reason? Dad was in an exhibition entitled 'Not Ready Yet'. It lived up to it's name and was quite a good concept. Some of the art, however seemed a bit invisible and... Not up to scratch..? Some was good though, but I'm not naming names!! It is at the Exchange (opposite Primark), and is held in an old shop. It runs until the 6th February so pleease drop by if you are near! To find out more, just click.
If you can't make it, here are some pictures of what your missing!

The front entrance of the purposely taped-up shop/gallery
ooh, mysterious... Some of the rooms were locked with padlocks, and the public had to ask for them to be opened.

Notice the bin bag...This was our view before the exhibition opened. We thought it was part of the art, but it disappeared when the doors opened...
Not ready yet









View from inside to out into the Exchange through the tape-covered windows
It was like a mini-maze inside. That's one of the bits my dad made!
... and this is another of his creations... such a skilful pile...

After we looked round a bit, me and mum went 'shopping'. Basically walked round Primark for about 5 minutes, while mum complained she was 'bored'. I only had time to buy some jeans. We also went to a really nice little cafe/sandwich/panini/coffee shop type thing called Atlas Deli, where I had a pink flavoured water (or 'Vitamin Water'):
And a brie and cranberry (or something) panini, which was very nice!!

Yum! xx

New Years Resolutions

Ok, so this is my third post about the New Year in three days... I jut keep thinking of things I want to say, but I promise it will be my last!!
Anyway, back to the title. I realise it's the 3rd January already, but you are supposed to take a bit of time to think of your resolutions, and I think it means they are easier this way! So, last years resolutions were to play the guitar and do yoga... I didn't do either, but in my defense, I just don't really have time to do things like that anymore!! Alright, Alright... without anymore hesitation, theeese are my Resolutions...

1. Go abroad somewhere nice ... I really want to go to Japan! But it means I will have to raise the funds. It's a challenge.

2. Tweet and blog more! Since I only really got into Twitter recently, I feel I ought to make a bigger effort, and blog... because I don't want this blog to die like my last one.

3. Learn to play the flute just cos every resolution list has to include a musical instrument ;)

4. Buy more pyjamas :)

5. Invest in some designer clothing ... because the most designer piece I have is Jack Wills, and I'm thinking Gucci, Chanel, D&G... which ties in nicely with the last one...

6. Don't spend all my money. Easier said than done.

Ok, so there it is. *sighs* Wish me luck!

And for the last time... Happy New Years and do you have any resolutions??
