It’s April- Middle of Spring- It’s getting a little warmer and yes hallelujah we have seen some sunshine! I am really getting in the mood for the summer over the last couple of weeks. Which is very unlike me. I’m generally more of a winter girl myself, all that hot chocolate, cosy socks/pj’s, fires and that but no to hell with all that I am sick of the rain and the cold and I would very much like a natural tan thank you.
After a tough start to the year I’m finally getting some of my mojo back. I have returned to my ‘this is just a rough patch there will always be one but happier times are still to come’.
I’ve also been throwing myself into writing. This semester I have done a bit of writing for my college newspaper and I have to say I love it! Journalism and writing is always something I’ve thought about but not really ever gotten into it. But when things weren’t going great I knew I had to pick myself up and find some things to make me happy-like writing. It was the most amazing thing seeing my name printed under an article in a newspaper but also terrifying to think of people reading it. Although the college year is nearly over I’m already looking forward to getting involved with the paper again next year!
Also in march I joined the mac club and have fallen in love with the velvet teddy matte lipstick-Damn it 😀 Usually I don’t like to do what everyone else is doing- it just feels like copying and not being creative. So I never bought into the whole kylie J lip thing until last christmas. My sister asked me to write an xmas list and so I decided why not ask her to get me the lip combo and I’ll see what all the fuss is about 😀 turns out I really like it.The downside- I tend to have dry lips so this definitely isn’t an everyday product. But when I do wear it, I really like how it looks!
I FINALLY got my hair cut! Nothing too drastic just a simple trim. I haven’t been too happy with how my hair has been looking this last while so I wanted to get some life put back into it. And now it’s all about maintaining and styling. I’ve used a lot of products since I cut my hair up short the first time so I think I might do a post all about short hair soon!
St Paddy’s day was a fun day out as I met up with some friends from school that I don’t get to see that often because they’re doing the leaving cert and I’m in my first year of college. I waved all healthy thoughts and didn’t even hesitate when ordering that supermacs 🙂 Afterwards we just chilled in town having a few drinks (18 😉 ) to mark the occasion and catch up. I love those days where you just chill out and have good chats and the lols and even better I bumped into a couple of friends I hadn’t seen in forever!
Now though it’s back to the serious sh*t. As easter break comes to a close I hibernate in the library for a couple days rushing to get assignments done. This is exactly what my life is going to look like though until after the exams. Pretty soon the library will be seeing me a hell of a lot more than my actual home. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do- I’ll be damned if I fail my exams and can’t come back to college in August- Love it too much! 😀
So I guess even though this post is sort of all over the place what I’m trying to say is that March has been good to me. Hope for the same from April…fingers crossed.
Stay classy and don’t be nasty 😉
