Box swap #3 Stefi

So this is my 3rd and final box swap (for a little while anyways) this one is with my sister Stefi, we are always sending each other things so this time we thought we would do a proper box swap and blog about it. I gave stefi her box about 3 months ago because i wanted to do it early, then today i just received mine i was so excited it was packed full of loads of stuff, more stuff then i gave her! She also sent my birthday card and present with the box so she didn't have to send another package which is good thinking.

Birthday wish list

I know my birthday isn't until September but i wanted to do a wish list say people (basically family) know what i want for it. As i have got older i see no point celebrating it anymore, it's just like any other day except i would of been born that day 25 years ago (yes i am 25 this year). When i was younger i had a plan that by the time i was 25 i wanted to be moved out of my parents, married and have my first child, but that obviously hasn't happened for me yet and things have all changed for me since i have started seeing someone new. But anyways enough of that, there isn't much that i want surprisingly and i wouldn't even care if no one got me anything on my wish list and it's called a wish list for a reason!

I love dresses i want so many and shoes that's why i chose two of each and they are mostly blue because i am a freak for blue. I really want the Special edition 3DS XL because i have Chris's 3DS at the moment and it's his not mine ( i should really give it back since we are no longer together) and the animal crossing special edition is too cute! Also German winegums are amazing and i could eat them forever! I am pretty obsessed with Vans at the moment, i wish i could have them all but these are the two i want at the moment!

week in pictures // general update

I haven't really been paying much attention to my blog lately and i feel really bad about it, but seeing as i am doing nothing today i thought i would write a bit about everything that has been going on in my life recently, mostly stuff i have been putting off talking about. Most of you know i was engaged and that i wanted to get married in the next two years to him but unfortunately things for me with him didn't feel right anymore and i ended that relationship, i sound like a bitch for doing it but things hadn't been right for a while since i lost the baby and i just wasn't happy anymore, the stress had been making me ill and i thought it was best to just end it and try and start my life over to be happy. I do still love him very much and i had some really special times with him but sometimes things in life happen and in order for me to be happy i couldn't stay in that relationship anymore. Besides that i have been busy hanging out with someone new that i have been seeing, he is very sweet and has made me feel like the old Elle again, everyone has noticed a difference in me and they are happy that i'm not sitting around depressed anymore, his name is Tom and i really enjoy his company and we like the same things, which is always a good thing. Actually had a lovely evening with him last night and met two of his friends, we sat and ate pizza and watched Southpark.

I have been really naughty and stopped making headbands, but i am ordering more stock to get back into making them seeing as i love making them and other people love them too! I am thinking about doing big wild rose headbands only though seeing as i think they are the prettiest, but if i do get requests to do other kinds i am more then happy to make them. Now finally i put together my week in instagram pictures seeing as i haven't done that in ages!

1. I saved up 100,000 bells in animal crossing new leaf and all i was given was a box of tissues for it *sad face* // 2. My sister visited my land in animal crossing and gave me an orange balloon! // 3. Tom got me some lucky charms and popping candy, i was beyond excited about it. // 4. My mum made the most yummy pasta ever, chicken and cheese! // 5. I had a nice time playing borderlands 2 at Tom's i hadn't played it in ages and i realised why i liked it so much again. // 6. I decided to straighten my hair for the first time in forever. // 7. It's been super sunny in St Austell lately and i love the view from my balcony in my garden. // 8. Gizzy looks terrified haha // 9. penni is so cute i love when she sits around with that grumpy look on her face with her paws together.

Pink hair!



✿ ✿ 

Over the years, I've dyed my hair many colours! This year I had it lilac, ginger, red, brown, dark 
purple, green, blonde and now pink! I have to say though it wasn't meant to be pink... I am not a big fan of pink so I decided I would have pinky/purple. But it seems the pink kinda took over my hair and I was left with super bright pink hair with lots of other shades of pink, but I really like it and I think it brings out my blue eyes a lot! I can't remember which purple I used because I threw the pot away when I finished it after dying but I mixed it with flamingo pink from directions which looks red in the pot, then yesterday I made it a big brighter by using carnation pink which is VERY pink. Before I could actually dying my hair pink I had to strip it with colour B4 and then I bleached it 4 times.. which was really naughty of me but I didn't bleach it all in one go I did it over a series of days. I had green at the ends of my hair which I couldn't get rid of no matter how much I stripped my hair or bleached it, so when I did my final bottle of bleach the green had gone a pastel colour. Once I put the direction dye's on my hair after mixing them with conditioner the green had completely gone and turned pink.

The last picture is a bit patchy but as I said before I re did it with carnation pink and the flamingo pink so it sorted the patchy bits.
