A while's worth

Hi dollies! Sorry for this post being incredibly delayed. I was planning to blog on Monday but I remembered that I had 14 weeks worth of work which I somehow had to finish before earlier this afternoon. Woops! So yeahhhh, here's a quick little recap of what's been happening lately.

Dinner at Vapiano for Ruth's 20th birthday

New uniform for work. Square oversized knit from Supre, jeggings from Supre, satchel bag from Rubi, beanie from eBay, deer head necklace from eBay.

Waiting for the fireworks at Buddha's birthday festival. We got there early enough to be right next to the river!

Lying on the grass and virtually star gazing on Jason's Samsung S2.

Playing Jubeat on Adrian's iPad before the fireworks started.

First proper group photo with the loves of my life ♥

Ombreing Sandra's hair and prepping her for a photo shoot

Final submissions that I spent hours and hours sooking over

Photography documentation

Sculptural documentation

Cylinders of paper cutting placed into glass jars/bowls

Final submission of sculptural piece

Never again will I convince myself that I can complete so much work in such a short amount of time. I really let myself down and after walking into the art block this morning, my heart sank. People had huge bodies of work consisting of three or four pieces that had so much detail w o w. Oh well, hopefully my theory and second body of work for his year will pull my grade back up. 

Hope all of you are having a lovely Friday night; take care! ♥

After almost three years of living with my beloved GHD styler and going through a billion boxes of hair dye, it's pretty obvious that my hair deserves a little pampering. I've gone through so many drug store hair masks and treatments that claim to do wonders and, well... they don't.

I was sent a box of Dove Nourishing Oil Care treatment to try out and after using it continuously after every shower and morning after straightening since it arrived, I have to admit it's one of the most effective I've ever used.

My verdict: The product left my hair feeling smooth and light without the greasy look that so many other products left ♥ Sandra and Joy both commented on how smooth my hair felt after I was nuzzling their shoulders and this made me so happy because I realised that it was the first time that I'd ever gotten a comment about the quality of my hair after using a product without mentioning it to anybody!! For anybody who's wondering, I have fairly dry and brittle hair due to all the heat I put onto it so I wouldn't recommend this product for anybody with normal-oily hair since the product wouldn't absorb as well and you'd be left with the residue.

Hope all of you are well and enjoying your week ♥
