Loving, Needing, Meh! #3

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to this weeks 'Loving, Needing, Meh!'... I think I have succumbed to the fact that life is going to be pure madness until the end of this month! We have our Arts Week next week at work which will be fab but MANIC!! 

This week I am LOVING: 
  • Pastel mint nails! So fresh an apparently 'on trend', get me!
  • My mum cooking me fish-fingers and chips when I came home from school this week! (I felt about 8 years old again! - Not healthy but hey, not like I have it everyday, I was being all nostalgic!)
  • The countdown! Only two more weeks until the summer holidays people! I have lots to do and will be making some bits and pieces to feature on here too! Can't wait!
  • Monday's boxing! I am blessed with some awesome partners who yell at me, usually Laura, recently substituted for Claire, who has now 'dumped me' for her usual partner who has just returned from sunny Florida - so I was fostered by Rich this week! Thanks Rich!
This week I am NEEDING:
  • To be a proper girl! It dawned on me this week, as I contemplated the various 'do's' I am invited to this month, that I have no clothes to wear to a nice event. As I opted for my one and only LBD (several years old and usually only aired once a year) I realised I am lacking in the wardrobe department. I have no nice, smart shoes. Zero. My work ones have 'drivers wobbly heel syndrome' and will shortly need throwing out. I have no bags other than one sports bag and a handbag my best friend brought me donkeys ago. Tragic. So if you have invited me somewhere and I look like a sporty seconds reject please have pity on me!
This weeks 'MEH!':
  • So, as mentioned above, I am off out and thought I would attempt a bit of glamour! (I may not have the clothes but I can do the make-up - it's the artist in me!). I decided to purchase some natural looking false eyelashes. Well, they said 'natural' on the packaging. Maybe it is just me, maybe I am just too self conscious or perhaps I have watching too much TOWIE and am frightened of replicating the overdone look (I love TOWIE btw, not being insulting - but I don't carry off bling too well! Subtle is more me!). So I thought I would have a trial run. I did my make up how I want it to be for the event and set up base camp in the bathroom. They said on a video I watched to place them, without glue, on the lashline, to see what they would look like and OMG!! Have you seen the Rocky Horror Show?? If not, have you ever seen a badly made up drag queen? Enough said. Thank God I hadn't stuck them on. I am now in search of some even more natural ones - or just a bloody good mascara!!
