So...I did it! Only took half an hour, and the pain was bearable. I think a lot of people forget that a needle is being rammed in and out of your skin really quickly, so yes, it will hurt, but it does depend on where you get it. The most painful part were the lines, shading hardly hurt at all and I am so happy with him! A perfect way to end my time at Southampton and University. It ached a bit afterwards and I do have to be careful about knocking it but apart from that it's fine, just washing it with mild soapy water and putting a thin layer of antiseptic cream on a few times a day. The guy who did it was really nice and so funny, he told us that he met Kat Von D last year haha. Afterwards I was meant to go home and rest but I really wanted some new sandals from River Island and a top from Primark so off we went, trying one shoe on was quite funny as I had to wave my bandaged foot around and explain to the sales assistant that no, my foot wasn't broken, I had just gotten a tattoo.

These are actually furry, I can't stop stroking them haha.

Couldn't be bothered to take it off, basically it's got butterflies all over!

From Accessorize, yep, obsessed with leopard print.

I actually got the earrings last week, but forgot to put them in my mac post. I am so in love with my sandals, can't wait to wear them when my swallow's healed, until then I'll be living in Topshop ballet pumps, which will look rank after constant wear so I'll have to replace them. I also got My Neighbour Totoro to watch last night- such a cute, funny film, especially when he's standing at the bus stop with the umbrella, if you haven't seen it I can really recommend it.
Anyway, I am off to make my second cup of tea today, walk to Waitrose with the boy and generally slob around. I've put some stuff on ebay and need to clear out my chest of drawers in preperation for moving home- I only have a month of independance and freedom left eeek. Joke, my parents are amazing and I won't miss having to pay for washing tablets/food etc. Plus my brother has just got a little puppy who I am so looking forward to meeting!

Time and Place

University is over. Finito. Apart from being very happy about this, but also quite sad at the same time, I am now bloody bored. I would hunt for a job, but as I have to move back home in a month there isn't much point, plus I have the horrible task of packing up my room which I think will take forever. In the meantime, I am catching up on trashy tv (made in chelsea? HAHA), rereading numerous Vogue and Elle's and trying not to spend any money (saving up for a holiday with the boy, hopefully Rome). Alas this last point hasn't proved easy, and I do confess that I did go on a little shopping spree the other day, come on, the first one since I came back to Uni and anyway I thought I'd reward myself after handing in 4 essays in 2 weeks. First purchases consist of makeup, MAC to be precise. I decided to treat myself to some brush cleaner, concealer, brow set gel, concealer brush and a lip pencil, which I love (subculture).

Brow set

Studio Finish concealer in NW20
Then I bought some rings from here. Loving massive turquoise rings at the moment:

ok, my hand looks deformed...

I also went into town on Tuesday, scoffed Nando's and trawled through so many shops in the hunt for my graduation ball/graduation dress. Found it in Topshop, I'll post about that and my other clothing purchases later. Now I'm going to make some soup and and tea- I might have to take up running or I'm going to end up massive- this is what boredom does to me, I eat! Although saying that I might make a cake...

Shirt- Topshop
Skirt- H&M
Belt- Primark
Necklace- Vintage
Shoes- Topshop
Just a little outfit post as I am meant to be revising for my last ever exam on Monday, then it's freedom and in the pub for the afternoon :) Then I am off shopping for my graduation and graduation ball dress, I'm hoping I can find one that I can wear to both. Also fake tanned for the first time ever yesterday, an interesting experience, not sure that I put enough on if that makes sense, as I am a little browner, not orange thank god (I used St. Moritz). Update on the tattoo- I am hopefully going to sort it out after exams are over and get a picture of what I want etc drawn up. 

Revision time!! X
