Yo yo pretty people, writing this as I double check I have everything ready to fly to Barcelona this evening and when this is published I will be in Barcelona, exciting times. I will be back to regular ootd posts sometime soon but the weather hasn't been there for it recently, so  studio stuff has gone on, especially as I've been working a lot. And today I have another beauty post (I'm turning into a beauty blogger here) with reviews of Billion Dollar Brows kits.
Previously only available through salons in the UK they are now available in Boots stores and they were kind enough to send me two of their kits to review. A little disclaimer, I'm not amazing at doing my brows (though I am getting better) so if you do know how to do brows then you can probably do better things with these kits than I have. But I'm just telling you mainly what I think of the products.
Previous to this I really only used a brow pencil to do my brows, or a shadow brow kit so it was my first time trying products like these.
Oh and as a plus Billion Dollar Brows are vegan friendly, that's definitely a plus.

Agh sorry guys! My every 3 days things has gone, I'll get back to it asap I promise! But I recently got a new job and have worked a 50 hour week and then some, it's been crazy but a lot of fun. So I haven't had any time to blog, which is the sad thing about all this working, because honestly (as corny as it sounds) I've never had a group of people make me feel so welcome, everyone is just so nice to me and it's lovely. Though the long hours have been killing my feet and back and I'm thankful to have a break for a week now. Even better I'm off to Barcelona the day after tomorrow with my sister which will be super exciting (and I will be vlogging it all so stay tuned for that.
But for now something Christmasy and a bit late, the lovely people at Farfetch gave me a Christmas gift which was Vivienne Westwood Giftwrap which was super cool, plus a little design book so I'm gunna talk about that today.

Hey guys, I am posting a random mix of posts at the moment, but I kind of like that because I'm wiring different things and photographing differently and generally just widening some skills and trying something new a bit. I mean there was supposed to be an ootd post today however I've been in Bristol the past couple of days and today I slept and went to the doctors and ate a lot. Definitely a bitter sweet day. Bad because I found out from the doctors I may never be able to dive so have to change my travel plans for next year but some good things happened today too so who knows. These things just happen and maybe that's what was meant to be, maybe I'm meant to find something to do that I will enjoy more.
Anyway today's post is photos from a photography course I've been doing recently. These are the 6 final project photos I picked, my theme was looking at taking photos in the dark, kidn of eerie and surreal. A challenge but a good one.

Everything Looks Different in the Dark [Final Project]

Ello ello, it feels like it's been ages since I've posted an outfit so here is one! It's partly because of the weather, I mean today (when I was extremely hungover and not up to go out and take photos) there was beautiful sunshine yet any other day I want to go out its grey and rainy and pretty damn gross actually. I mean I live in Wales but there have been 2 sunny days since October and it's slightly ridiculous.
Despite that when I was taking these photos I saw a tree with blossom on it. What is wrong with that tree? Was it ok? Does it know Spring is months away? I mean if it's happy doing that then go tree but I don't think that's healthy.
Oh and on the title, it was kind of a last minute one but clever? Well I mean make your own opinion on that. I was trying to think of jokes to do with trees but I couldn't and I was thinking about trees hibernating and stuff. Basically I get called a tree by some of my friends because I'm very much fuled by sunlight and if I could I would hibernate in the winter when there's no sun. But I would quite like to be an evergreen able to take in enough sunlight all year wrong and not rely on losing all my leaves and going into my little hibernation bubble (i.e being really tired and quite often depressed in winter). So I thought I would try and channel the spirit of an evergreen tree, as fucking weird as that sounds.
That has nothing to do with the pictures, I just wanted to be a bit more creative because I felt they were kinda dull.

Hey guys, So I went to see the Marina and the Diamonds on Saturday and honestly it was like one of the happiest nights of my life not going to lie. I've ever seen someone I love's music as much so it was a joy. Marina is perfect and her live show was perfect and my pictures don't do it justice; I will telly you for-why though. Big venues don't let you take in cameras with detachable lenses so I had to take my little camera in which doesn't have a very fast lens and therefore I was struggling with low shutter speeds.
But despite the picture quality not being up to my usual standards I wanted to post these anyway, as I see this blog as a documentation of come cool things I've done and also my photography and this is both of them. I want to be able to look back at these photos and remember, and share them with you guys.
This post is a day late I know! But I do have a reason, due to not promoting my last post as much as I usually do my posts and generally not being very active online the past few days it didn;t have many views and much response, and I really wanted people to tell me what they thought about it because it was a new concept, so i kept it the most recent post for an extra day just to see. And I'm v happy to say the comments were positive so I will be doing more posts on that theme.

This time of year always starts to get rough for me, the days are shorter and the lack of light start to impact my mental health. But each year I get better at coping and as part of that process try to keep doing positive things with the more frequent self reflection sessions that happen in this head space. I mean it can definitely be a positive and negative thing. This post is one of them, a little deeper than I've ever done before (because I've never really talked about mental health, but I've been meaning to). And also a bit of a 'fuck you' to those parts of me in the back of my mind telling me I'm not enough, you hear me? I am.
So I thought I'd write a post about insecurities, because we all have them, and I think it's better to look at them and say "you know what. you're ok" to try and get along with them and that;s what I'm trying to achieve here. Firstly by recognising what arts of me I don't like so much and then by trying to accept them and move on. So I'm going to list some, talk about why I have an issue and then try and put it to rest; or at least start to. I've used photos already from posts to really show myself (from looking through the photos) how much I avoid my insecurities to work on that in the future.
Though this post is definitely not a complete list of my insecurities, there are a lot I think I'm not willing to admit very openly at the moment. It's more the ones that I see physically in pictures of myself, and after almost 2 and a half years of frequently taking and editing pictures of myself I've gotten more accustomed to what you could call "flaws" and now want to make peace with them I guess. I hope this post has the positive message intended.

Hey hey pretty people! It's finally been sunny, and I am so happy. Though today was grey I have hope that it won't be like that for the next 3 weeks. I mean it could well be but one sunny day is always means for a bit of hope for better weather.
Oh and it was such a beautiful one, the perfect crisp wintery day, with beautiful light all day from the low fun, that turquoise cloudless sky and a slightly biting cold. I went out and cycled around bit to find this spot by the sea to take photos and it was a perfectly chilled out. Pun not intended there. Lets just hope there are more days like this, it's the type of winter I love.

Hey hey hey, how's it going? Another night shoot, this time in a familiar location. I've said before how I light to go back to the same location in different seasons as they tend to look completely different and I guess the same can be said for day and night.
These photos didn't turn out at all like I expected but then again I don't know what I expected. They turned out better anyhow, I initially wasn't sure I like this look but I like it in the photos so it's a strange one really.
The past day has been clear, finally after about 3 weeks I have seen clear skies! It was beautiful, lots of grey weather really does make you appreciate how beautiful the sky is without clouds covering it. I mean clouds are pretty, except when they're just a white or grey mass covering the sky, that isn't so nice. I mean I'm hoping it stays like this for a little while but as I live in Wales there really is no guarantee.

Hey lovelies, this was supposed to be an outfit post but well... it. Won't. Stop. Raining. I mean I know I live in Wales but it's been about 3 weeks now and I haven't seen the sun for more than an hour. I planned to take my next outfit photos in the dark and well that didn't happen because of all this wind and rain! Hopefully I'll be able to get out in the next few days, maybe it'll calm down.
I have been waiting for a chance to use these photos though for a while. As part of my photography course for my final project I'm doing a night photography project and these are some of the test shots/experimentations I've done for it. Some have just been out and about in the dark whereas others were from a night photography ramble as part of Diffusion Festival. I mean I still need to take more pictures for my final project but wanted to share these too because I think they're pretty cool, they were all taken in the pitch black (well with the exception of street lights and such) and some of the colours are pretty cool.

Hi snazzy cats (ok trying a new greeting, not sure that one works) how's it going? Back with a slightly different post one I haven't done in over two years, coloured contact lenses! I haven't actually used coloured contacts since then so this was an experience, but I am going to wear them out this time, last time trying to get them in was too traumatic for me to try again for a while. I like to think I've improved in many ways since my last post (I mean you can see my old lense review here), but you can make your own decisions there.
So yeah lense review, some green lenses, I mean I always wanted green eyes as a kid, from Coloured Lenses UK who were kind enough to send them to me for review. The lenses are from their Freshlook Colourblends collection which has some pretty cool colours in.

Ok so I just listened all the way through Grimes' new album and I'm in love, well I knew I would be but still. it's so chill and quite different to her other albums. Just gutted that I'm in Belize when she's in the Uk (but I'll be in Belize so I can't really complain).
Also the location for these pictures isn't the best. I went here before and it was better but as soon as I got my camera out it pissed down. So I went back and the leaves had gone all mushy and gross from being walked on (it's that lovely time of year).
Buut I did just really want to show you guys this shirt (and get another post out on time). I've wanted something cow print for so long! Mainly because of the irony in the fact I'm allergic to milk but I also love the pattern, and asymmetrical shirts are my favourite. I've honestly worn this very outfit about 4 times in the last week.

And now I don't care anymore

Hey hey pretty people. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, mine has been good but super busy and very rainy. So much rain, so much grey, it's gross and I need it to stop. The other day I went to take photos and the whole half an hour walk down it was grey but rain free. Of course as soon as I got my camera out there was a torrential downpour, so I walked the 10 minutes to my grandparents from there and we had lunch, turned out nice but I  didn't get my pictures unfortunately.
But back to these photos, a little different to usual as they're taken at night, which was a new challenge but I liked that. A good time to take photos with flash at night is around bonfire night because people just think the flashing it fireworks and don't question it. Though I was down a lane that had people walking past and so I did get some strange looks and even some people taking a detour through the lane to see what I was doing. But they turned out quite well I think!
I think the title fits well too because all you want to do in tassel shorts is shake the tassels. well that's all I want to do at least; I don't know about everyone else. Plus I love the song, it has a great message, and a sick beat

Hi hi, back again with something a little different. Last month there was a photography festival, Diffusion,  going on that happens every two years in Cardiff (though I only heard about it last month) and I volunteered there and went to most of the exhibitions. It was a really cool festival and really weird that it was in Cardiff just as I was on my gap year and had the time to spend there. I went to events, talks and volunteered in some of the exhibitions which was cool.
 A lot of the exhibitions were held in already existing galleries such as 3rd Floor Gallery or Turner house but others were in buildings such as those along Wood Street which are soon to be knocked down which made for interesting spaces.
So I thought I'd just share some photos and though of some of the exhibitions. The theme was Looking for America which meant there were photographers from both the UK and America, and some other places in the world, involved. I thought I'd taken more photos than I did though, but some exhibitions I have 0 photos of, even my favourite one. Oops, I'll write about them anyway.

Hey pretty party people! I honestly wasn't sure I was going to do an outfit post today as I had to go and do the photos today and well it was gross for photo taking! Yesterday it was grey and foggy but today was just grey... but then I looked at the forecast and it's going to rain for the next week! I guess that's what I get for living in Wales, there we go.
I wanted to get a photo of this jacket once more before I try and turn it into a cap I(and probably just end up destroying it) i rarely wear it because it only looks good on me sat on my shoulders so I thought I'd try making a cape out of it. I'll let you know how that goes.
Also this skirt is so cute! So short too, I was cycling in it earlier and I got some weird looks. Just to clarify though I was wearing shorts underneath (well pj shorts as I couldn't find any other ones, I'm a classy gal. I bought it in a charity shop for like £3 and it fits perfectly it's amaze.

Also this skirt is so cute! So short too, I was cycling in it earlier and I got some weird looks. Just to clarify though I was wearing shorts underneath (well pj shorts as I couldn't find any other ones, I'm a classy gal. I bought it in a charity shop for like £3 and it fits perfectly it's amaze.



Hello lovely people, today I am back with another outfit post. I was going to do one of my Halloween costume but I haven't actually tried it out yet (and therefore it could all go horribly wrong tomorrow).
Of course as it is autumn I had to do a stereotypical fashion blogger autumn psot with the leaves and the colours and everything. Just to get it all out of my system. I mean I love autumn, well to be honest I love every season, I just love seasons and how everything changes and the mood that goes along with it from cosyness to new beginnings to evenings out in the sun it's all perfect to me.
But back to autumn and this post, yes I have won this hat and all out and I get some weird looks out in my big hat. But it's actually really handy, because I have really sensitive eyes and when the sun is low in the autumn evenings I can use my hat to shade my eyes, It all works until it's windy and then me and the hat don't get on very well.
Also these shorts are greaaat, I don't think they suit me amazingly but I love just swishing around with the tassels. Plus they're so soft, hurrah for faux suede.

Hey hey pretty people. Today I'm playing at being a beauty blogger. Which I'm not in any way, but I gave it a go. The photos didn't turn out how I wanted but it's a good attempt (I have done some beauty posts before a loong time ago).
I saw Makeup Revolution had lipsticks for £1 and thought what have I got to lose, I loved the colours and even if they were no good it wasn't a lot of money lost. So I got 10 listicks for £12 including postage, not bad. I did accidentally buy two of the same shade though, so if I do a giveaway soon that'll be part of it.

No I haven't suddenly changed my hair back to blonde, these pictures are from a while ago. I actually took them for a Magazine but they never got my email and so I never got to be a part of it. But things come back and I should be in their February issue instead (fingers crossed) but of course I want to take a whole bunch of new pictures and have a new challenge and so you guys get to see these images.
Originally I was going to try and make temporary tattoos from flowers (using this tutorial here) but decided to leave it till the day before I wanted to take my pictures to look at the tutorial. Realising that I needed to use pressed flowers and well they take more than over night to press, so I improvised by taking some photos of flowers and using a bit of photoshop.
I tried to do these sort of more editorial style so I changed my clothes up a bit. Hope you like them!

Or don't as the case may be in this post (you'll see what I mean later on in the pictures). Hey hello I'm back this every 3 days thing is going well I;m vv happy about that woo!
These pictures are in a slightly different style to usual, I shot them at home in my Mum's greenhouse which is quite small so it was a challenge! Also if you're wondering about the bubble-wrap it's there because it's starting to get cold and the greenhouse isn't very well insulated so it's for insulation. It looks a little odd I know. But I didn't want to take it all down to take these photos. Plus it makes the light really nice for the photos.
But yeah different in that I had props and stuff. And it's all because of my ah-mazing dino shirt. I've wanted it ever since the whitepepper released it aaages ago but it's taken me until now to pluck up the courage to buy it. And now they've bought out the perfect bag collection with rockets and ufos and clouds and a bat backpack and I don't quite know which one to buy, any suggestions guys?
Speaking of bags d'you like my camera bag? I bought it at a flea market I went to a couple of weeks ago, my Dad picked it up and I was just like "mine yes" I haggled a bit for it and yeah it's mine I love it. Not very practical but it's a nice piece anyhow (I mean half the bags I own aren't practical tbh).

This every 3 days thing is actually working, woop de woop. Today I am back with an autumn wishlist, as I am also sticking to my outfit outfit other post style. For now anyhow. Today's wishlist is all items from Dresslink and I tried to stay away from just black and white but I kept being drawn back to it, oopsies.
The background is odd I know, i was looking through my archive of photos for autumnal photos but I don't seem to take many photos of autumn? I mean I was looking for cliché leaf pictures but nada. Apparently I don't take those kind of pictures. This works too I think, though it's a bit unconventional for wishlists.

And by it I mean the 90s grungy jumper and by back I mean in fashion. Well as you guys have probably guessed if you've followed me for a while (or have looked back through some of my outfits) you probably know I don't really care what's in fashion, I wear what I wear. However, when something is in fashion I can buy lots of that item. Like fluffy things seemed to be last autumn, i bought loads and I have more than enough for the cold months. I bought the jumper I'm wearing now in a vintage shop and I think I paid a lot for it (well a lot for me to buy things it was probably like £25) but I want more and I keep on looking for the perfect baggy grungy knit cardi or jumper but nada. They're either in colours I'd never wear or they're wool, which is irritating as anything and hardly vegan (though that's not so much of an issue if it's vintage). So yeah bring them back! I want to be cosy in ridiculously big knit jumpers. Please and thank you.
Also this posting every 3 days thing is actually working, it has been 3 days (just over 72 hours but who's counting) since my last post and i even have a schedule of what I'm going to post next! Well I say it's going well it's almost midnight and I'm just finishing editing and writing but it's not midnight yet so I am winning. Also I have a schedule but I haven't edited any of the photos for any of my schedule and I haven't even taken most of the photos but it's still progress. And progress is progress, but I won't speak too soon as this could go down the drain soon.

Hey again pretty people. Sorry for the late post I have been so super busy this week! It's been photography pretty much non stop. I just haven't had the chance to edit my blog posts. also don't help that I jsut got Civilization Beyond Earth but yanno, lets pretend that's not a factor.
I've been volunteering at Cardiff's Diffusion Festival for the last week and going to some of the events and it's been super fun, plus I've had my photography course and I've been working on photos from that (which I will show you in my next post probably) so it's all go.
The title was just because I have no creativity tonight apparently. And this is the first post with me and my grey hair so it seemed like a good idea?

Hello hello hello, the final instalment of my Paris posts is finally here! It took a while to get here and honestly this post could've easily been split into four or five posts but I have other things planned that I'm excited to post so here's just a super jam packed photo post (there are almost 50 pictures and a video in this, aren't you lucky).
Before I go onto talk more about this post and Paris I shall link you to my previous Paris posts there is the first outfit post, Cat Cafe and a second outfit post if you haven't already seen those.
There are a few things I do want to talk about from Paris (which I did write down so I wouldn't forget) like the really strange announcement sounds. In the Airport it sounded like someone was being ascended to heaven and in the train stations it sounded like the start of Soulja Boy.
Also if you get a transport pass, like a 3 or 5 day one (they make things so much easier... theoretically) don't keep them near your phone! Don't! We weren't told this to start with and Anna had to change their ticket like 5 times, it was a nightmare and meant at one station we couldn't even get out. So just a warning there, you don't want to have to try and change your ticket loads, especially when you've already been travelling for 5 hours.
All in all though Paris was beautiful as expected and a lot of fun. We did mainly chliche tourist stuff but that was fun. Though Paris is pretty difficult to navigate because every building looks the same, it's all white and all pretty but all the freaking same and bigger than I was excpeting. I've been to London quite a lot and that is big but I know it reasonably well so it seems ok (plus different areas look very different so you know where you are).
But anyway, onto the photos. Speak to you more after them. The photos are in order of my trip, so it does end on a Cemetary, bit weird but that's just how the trip happened.

Hello hello hello! As promised I'm back with another Paris post, this time with the all important ootd post in front of the Eiffel tower. Well not just in front as there were waaay too many people there. In this cute little side street, shame about all the parked cars though. 
Another post with my weird mix of colour hair too, it was a bit of a mess really. My hair is actually currently grey, in case you were interested. 
People were of course walking up this street adn looking at me strangely but I've started to get used to that and embrace it a bit, a nice bit of progress.
Oh and if you want to see my other Paris posts there is an ootd post here, a Cat Cafe post here and a photo diary post here, enjoy!

Hey again guys, as I said in my last post there is an interruption in my posts from Paris to bring you this one. I may have mentioned earlier about doing a bigger set of alternative Cardiff guides so I guess this could be seen as the start of that. That will be in sections but this is just some things you could fill 24 hours in Cardiff with. I thought I would include some things a little more out of the ordinary than what you might see normally just because that's the side of Cardiff I see more. And it's what I want to show in my Alternative Cardiff guides
Also if you are in Cardiff and want to see if there are any events on then check out Eventbrite.
The first picture is just an Aerial picture of Cardiff and the surrounding area, didn't really have any pictures of the whole of Cardiff and well, this is the whole of Cardiff, aha.
Photos are all mine, though I don't have as many as I'd like due to it being an awful day when I went to take them.

Ok so I don't know I believe in fate, but if fate is real then it was fate we found this Cat Cafe in Paris (you can see my first Paris post here, third here and fourth here). As we were walking to out hotel on the first night (after 7 hours of travelling, yes, 7; and with only a 1 hour flight) we walked past and it made things that little bit better. Then it became the highlight of my trip, well one of them, I mean I love Museums and vegan burgers and monuments but I've dreamed of going to a cat cafe for a good few years now. Is that a bit sad?
I do have a Paris photo diary coming up but I had to have a post just for this. Though the lighting wasn't that great and so a lot of the photos were blurry. But I think I saved them with the editing, they're a different style than I intended but hey ho that's life.
The Cafe we went to was Les Café des Chats and there are 12 permanent cat residents there.

Yeah there are a lot of pictures of cats in this post, that's basically the whole post, you've been warned.

Hey pretty people. This is the first of my Paris posts! A bit late in the day... I mean I was editing and then lost track of time and had to go out and yeah, stuff happened, as it does.
This one is an ootd post taken just outside the Louvre (hence the title) which was super pretty and it was the first ootd photo set using my new lense and I'm super duper happy with it. The location and my new lense were super together I think. Though I did have some photos with some v strange faces.
My hair has gone this weird mix of colours, with blue and pruple and blonde and pink and grey in it and sometimes I love it (I mean other people seem to more than my pure purple) but I'm getting it bleached tomorrow and going back to blonde, sad times. Though that's so I can hopefully dye it all over again! So the purple stays and fades less weirdly than before, I'm counting on my sister coming home this weekend and being willing to dye my hair for me. I'll make a huge mess of it otherwise.
Paris was a lot of fun and once I've done the video diary I will add it to this post. I was going to have four Paris posts in a row but I'm probably going to have a Cardiff city guide in between so look out for that!
You can see the rest of my Paris posts here, here and here.

Sorry this post is waay over due, so much has happened recently I've been working and then in Paris (blog posts to come) so yeah, hi guys.
Greenman was a lot of fun, I was there on my 18th Birthday weekend and was a pretty good start to 18. I mean the first legal drink I bought had milk in it so  I couldn't actually drink it but apart from that it was a success. I saw Waxahatchee who were amazing and started off my birthday watcihng Hot Chip, also pretty good. Oh and I saw Public Broadcasting service who were amazing and some other amazing people. It was just great.
I did miss a lot of acts I really wanted to see though, mainly becasue I was very much hung over on Satuday, I met up with a  friend of mine and we sat under a tree in the rain and then decided to call it a night, neither of us were in the mood to party. So I regret that a bit.
But I made some new friends, discovered some new bands, got very muddy boots, ate some amazing vegan food, almost destroyed a lens and danced a lot. So all in all it was a pretty great weekend
Oh and prepare to see my photos get a lot better after this post as I have a new lens and I love love love it. I managed to almost break my old one at Greenman (it got condensation inside it) but it was ok in the end.

I got Halsey's new album today, and I'm waiting on the Wonder Girls' new album. It's a good week for my music taste. The Wonder Girls' new concept is just perfect I wanna be one of them now to be honest and I've listened to the whole album and it amazing.
So you guys have seen my photo diary and my ootd from Pride but here is my ootn from pride, again taken by Anna, again cause they're a babe. I'm trying to smile more in blog psots now I have my braces off and I'm slowly getting used to it, it's much easier when I'm not taking my own pictures.
I wore this to the Pulse after party which was a lot of fun, they had rides and dodgems and stuff. Thought I was going to die on one of the rides but I survied! 
I also got complemented quite a lot on this look so I'm hoping you guys like it too.
Oh and did you notice? I now have my own domain !!!! I am muccycloud.com now!

Hey hey guys. This is the first of my two outfits from Cardiff pride (Pride Cymru) which the lovely Anna took cause they're a babe. This was the one i wore during the day to the main pride event and I think it was a good choice. Also you get to see me with my full purple hair (which has faded really weirdly now and I need to re dye).
it was such a lovely day and I wish more LGBT events were held like that, though there's a youth conference on soon which I think I'll probably go to. It's nice to have an LGBT event/space which isn't just for over 18s and involving alcohol. That being said there are quite a lot of groups in Cardiff which I probably should join, I mean I need to make some new friends soon anyway as all of my school friends (well most) are off to uni in a couple of weeks, sad times.
As I mentioned before I spent a lot of money on badges and flags and stuff, most of which I'm wearing in these photos.
You can see my ootn from the after pary here and my photo diary here.


And the Stars are so far from the Ground

Thursday, 27 August 2015

Hey hey guys. This is the first of my two outfits from Cardiff pride (Pride Cymru) which the lovely Anna took cause they're a babe. This was the one i wore during the day to the main pride event and I think it was a good choice. Also you get to see me with my full purple hair (which has faded really weirdly now and I need to re dye).

18, finally! I mean it's about time I'm the last of my friends and the last of my school year.
Right now hopefully I'm partying it up in Greenman having a real good time. if I get any 3G signal I will be posting on my instagram so check that out for updates. It couldn't have been on a more ideal day, the Saturday of a festival I mean come on.
Wasn't sure what to do as a post for this but I thought I should commemorate it somehow so I just edited a photo. Which is a preview from an upcoming ootd (my second outfit for pride) and it means you guys can see my very purple hair (there is a video coming up about that too). So yeah, Happy freaking Birthday to me.
It's been a long wait but I think the year of being 18 is going to be a pretty good one, so I look forward to it.
I hope all of you lot are having a great weekend. Of course there will be a blog post and video from greenman so see you on the flipside!
Thanks for reading,

Hello lovely people. Today I'm here with something different, an event photo diary.  Also including bits from the pulse afterparty. Some of the photos aren't my best ever (and the vlog definitely isn't) but as a first for this sort of thing I don't think it's too bad. And either way I had an amazing day.
I haven't got many pictures of the parade, partly because Anna and I arrived in Cardiff a bit late and also because once we actually found the parade we ended up being part of it. We were wearing out LGSM t shirts and those of LGSM marching just went "yeah come join us" and that was super surreal.
I bought so much stuff., and then lost two badges which I'm still annoyed about. Also if you're wondering why I've included a random picture of some chips it's because they're honestly the best chips I've ever tasted in my life, no lie.
Also I now have all the free pens I need for a while I think.
I also now have an ootd and ootn post up.
The after party was also amazing, though on the ride pictured above I did think I was going to die at one point in it slightly. Oops... And though I was supposed to get home and be in bed before 3 so I was nice and awake (well more or less) for work today I ended up at home at quater past 4... ooops
Just like now I planned to go to bed two hours ago, I get carried away editing. I enjoy it too much, is that sad? 


I think with my vlogs I'm learning more what not to do. And I think because this was a one day event and because I was feeling ridiculously shy yesterday I got barely any footage, so I worked with what I had. I think I know what I need for the next one though. It's all about improvement after all.
Also it's my Birthday this Saturday! I will be in Greenman but I hope to be able to have a post scheduled even if it's just like on photo with "Happy Birthday me" on it or something. I'm very excited though.
I also have two different outfits from pride coming up so that'll be coming soon. Hope you all have a great week!
Thanks for reading!

Part two of my photos from this little greenhouse (part 1 here). I couldn't bring myself just to put everything in one blog post as I just enjoyed the hour or two I spend here so much. I'm becoming a bit plant obsessed and it's so great. Though I realise now this is a lot of photos of leafy plants. Also there was a little place where the people who kept the garden kept all their stuff and it was sooo cute.

Little Tropical Paradise

Part two of my photos from this little greenhouse (part 1 here). I couldn't bring myself just to put everything in one blog post as I just enjoyed the hour or two I spend here so much. I'm becoming a bit plant obsessed and it's so great. Though I realise now this is a lot of photos of leafy plants. Also there was a little place where the people who kept the garden kept all their stuff and it was sooo cute.

Life definitely gets the better of me, I have to say. And I keep trying to get round to do blog posts and I always do the photos (I have so many prepared) but somehow getting round to editing and posting is a different story. Every now and again I need a real sort out and to give myself a shake and rearrange my priorities really.
Today I have a photo set from a slightly different location. I went for a picnic the other day with some friends and as they went on the pedalos I went to explore a tiny little indoor tropical garden. I originally thought it was a butterfly house and got all excited but plants, terrapins and really fancy looking ducks are just as exciting.
It was like my own little heaven and I could've stayed there all day, but then my friends decided they wanted to do something else (which ended up as falling asleep watching Wayne's world at my house).

Its pretty standard now that my photos don't go exactly to plan. i learn something, and often do something new. Even more so with this set of photos. I was in a boiling hot field wearing heels (bad idea) had a good few stares (as people walked all the way along, rude) and then did somedoodles on my photos (they're not great but it's all good practice).
In all honesty I wasn't going to publish the photos with the drawings on as I just wanted it as practice, I want to get better at doodling digitally and this is the second time I've done it on photos (first time is here) but I thought it would be better if I could look back and see just how much I've improved in that respect in like a years time, well that's the plan anyhow.
So my little doodles aren't the best in the world but I just want them to get better over time, that's the aim anyway,

For some reason I was signing that title like lean on me, it seemed to work in my head but now I'm not so sure. But it's sticking as it is.
hello, right I keep promising I'll get back into blogging properly and get a routine but things keep catching up with me and I've had so much changing that it just hasn't happened. But now I have jobs sorted out and some photos I can make into posts I am going to try my very hardest to post every four days. I'm getting my shit together, really and truly.
I took my bike out to take these photos (which broke, again) and as soon as I got to this field and set up my camera it started raining on me. For a while it was pretty heavy so I sat with an umbrella over my camera in a field, as any normal person does. But then I thought, why not take pictures with my very broken umbrella in?
I don't own a non broken umbrella, they usually get three uses and then i break them. Don't ask how. I have no idea and neither has anyone else. Also these are the first photos with my braces off! I tried to smile a bit but I don't really know how to without looking creepy or ill... I'm working on it though.

Hey guys how is your week going? I actually have some exciting news, my top brace is off! Woop woop, I am now with straight teeth and no brace and it feels so nice! I can smile in pictures and I don't look weird when I take any more. Happy times, this means I'm probably going to start my main youtube channel sometime soon now too but I'm not entirely sure what video to do first...
Today I have my photo diary from when I was in Kavos a few weeks ago, there's a mix of photos here with some beach and some of Corfu town. They'll all be up individually on flickr soon so if you want details of where each one is taken then head over there! 
Even though I promised I would be I haven't been that active over the last couple of weeks due to being ill and generally not very motivated to do anything, But I'm starting to get some motivation so hopefully if it stops raining I should have some outfit posts and I also have a photography project planned so stay tuned for that!
