Bonfire Night

Guy Fawkes aka Bonfire Night was celebrated here in the UK earlier this month on the 5th. For some reason my town waited until the weekend after to celebrate it with a fireworks display and fair.

I wrapped up in 5 layers, and went with my friend Manon to see the fireworks. It was raining a bit, but the display was spectacular with some very pretty delicate fireworks as well. Bonfire Night always makes me feel really Autumn-y :3

Not bad for a mobile camera eh? haha!

We bought some blue&pink fizzy bottle sweets (my favourite!) to share and I bought myself a toffee apple.

November Hair Update

Unnatural hair colour fades extremely quickly, so it was time to re-dye my fringe! I had the rainbow of pink, lilac and mint for a month, which now looked like this…

Because the colours fade, it’s easy to do new placements and colours every time :D Last weekend I decided on something I haven’t done in years -  to have unnatural hair that isn’t pink! I chose blue and purple to go half-half over my fringe. It’s nice to have a change! :)

Progress shots….

Sparklemance Crafting Day

Took a visit to see my sparkleBFFEEE (best friend forever ever ever ever lol) Kairi on Tuesday. We hadn’t seen each other for two months as we don’t live in the same place, and we had both been busy. I was SO excited as I had missed her terribly.
We had been talking on twitter and facebook to organise a crafting day! We ordered the materials together to work on the same type of project.
We decided on making some bows. In fairy kei style. So lots of sparkle and cuteness with tulle.
My outfit this day…

Before we got down to crafting, we stopped to pick up a Starbucks fix. I got the gingerbread latte and Kai had the caramel hot chocolate. Rare treat for me as I don’t have a Starbucks where I live :’D

Crafting turned out to be dangerous. I burned a knuckle on the hot glue gun, and Kai burned her fingertips D: We both have blisters now. No pain no gain!
Then Kai’s cousin Gez came round, and he chose to listen to emo punk rock music from the early noughties from when we were teenagers lol XD Memory lane right there. Funeral for a Friend’s Juno anyone?

Later we had a jam to An Cafe ‘Ryuusei Rocket’ where I learned how to do a drum roll XD Kai was on her pink bass and I was on makeshift drums out of table, mug, and metal ashtray using paintbrushes haha. We also played ‘I will survive’ by Cake. We were pretty fucking awesome if I do say so myself X’D

Standing on a double-mattress bed in platforms and trying not to fall off… Always ‘fun’  XP
