Alive, Christmas, 2011 x

To say I feel like I’ve fallen off the world feels like an understatement. Thought I’d do a little update before Christmas to let the world know I’m still alive.

So, as of Monday, I’m officially half way through my final year of college and I’m already looking forward to lots of Christmas snoozing and lounging over the holidays. I love to lounge. Isn’t it the best? I also love sweets, but you already knew that. My mind definitely needs the recoup after this semester if I’m going to get through next year unscathed. We’ll be having a quite Christmas in my house- my Dad, my brother, Steven, my Grandad and myself will be taking over the sitting room to watch Band of Brothers ALL day. WW2 combined with a massive dinner and lots of sweets; I can’t imagine a sweeter day.

I already got one of my presents already – how bold – a lovely Holga 120 GCFN from HolgaRama. They were super lovely to deal with and my camera arrived so quickly. In fact, out of all the presents I bought online, it’s the only one that’s already arrived. I’ve been using my film sparingly until the giant batch I ordered from 7DayShop arrives. Also bought lots of 35mm too. Planning to get everything developed in January so I’ll have lots of lovely surprise shots.

Also, m boyfriend bought me a Sega Mega Drive. Possibly the ultimate present ever. Can’t wait to relive my youth and play Sonic all day.

What are you guys planning to do on Christmas day? – apart from eating lovely dinners and opening presents, obviously! Did you ask for something specific from Santy?

Besides the looming holidays, I’ve also got my exams in January to think about. Trying to put them to the back of my mind until after New Years, but that’s always easier said than done. Luckily, I’ve only two exams to sit – phew! – but once they’re done, it’s dissertation time. Eeek! I’ve been literally hiding in my study cave, ahem, our box room, since October planning and prepping my dissertation. My final proposal has been submitted so now it’s just a case of waiting for the new semester to start. I did a little post on my project back in October but my idea has changed a little since then. Always the way!

Initially I wanted to create a plus size/tall/petite site to host an online PDF magazine. I’m still doing the site and magazine but concentrating on plus size and crafty fashion. One of the nicest things about crafty fashion is it’s open to girls of any size so I thought it would be a nice sister topic for plus size fashion. My PDF magazine, Kelsey, will have lots of lovely product and fashion photography, while the site will run as a blog. I’m really excited but it’s hard not to be nervous about it. Can’t wait to get started for a million reasons, but the main one is using it as an excuse to shop. I’m dying to get my hands on some super pale Nicola Robert’s Dainty Doll make-up from Asos. Obviously it will be a requirement for self portraits, you know. I’m tired of feeling orange from using Ivory foundation. Boo!

I’ll leave it there before I start listing out everything I want online. Thank you, Kaboodle!

Yay and Happy Christmas x

  1. Have fun with the Dainty Doll range. Nicola’s done really well with it. I used to do her make up when she wanted to be tanned like the others but spent 3 years looking orange! Years of everyone hassling her and she finally came to terms with her beautiful skin.

    Pale rocks!

    • Wow! That’s amazing. The range looks great. I was thinking about getting some Stargazer white to mix with my regular foundation, but then I stumbled across Nicola’s range and thought perfect! Can’t understand why it hasn’t been done before. Not as if we get tons of sun in the UK and Ireland! She looks incredible with her natural skin. Go pale girls!
