skulls and stuff....


How is everyone today? good, fine, ok, great? well i have had a bit of a dvd binge today, whilst slaving over emails and orders, i say slave i dont mean it in a bad way. I have been planning my american trip too... and all the places i want to see whilst i am out there, i have a few but i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations? My outfit today was pretty slack, i am wearing a pair of trousers that no longer fit me, because of the rapid weight loss i only bought these a month ago and i practically have to double the front over to get them to fit me, i am not bragging but seriously i never loose weight must do this break up thing more often! I kid! tHE T-shirt i am wearing is one of my brothers old ones from topman and the checked top is from him too, he did a mass clean out today i nicked them all off him, hand me downs are great.
Its been a bit up and down this week, ( i mean my feelings) one minute i feel on top of the world the next i am buying dvds and i dont want to leave the house total head case, i know its all part of the process but i wish to god sometimes i would just like to switch off sometimes.
Well tomorrow i am off to spitalfields i LOVE spitalfields on a thursday its basically junk jewelry thursdays, were i can get lots of broken bits and pieces of jewelry for cheap and this makes me happy.
I have been drawing my new tattoo today and i have decided on a little mexican skull and it will be going on my right wrist, well the side of my wrist, i am not at all bothered about what people will think of it or when i get old it will look stupid, i think life is about expressing yourself and if i am honest i want it and i have already ruined my angelic looks (my dad calls it) by getting numerous piercing and tattoos, so what the hell, thats what i think.
One of m best mates is off on holiday abroad for the first time so i am feeling pretty damn lonely atm, i got my head in my work, making and stuff but it doesn't actually replace speaking and spending time with someone though, oh well, my family my main focus right now and my little bros won tickets to 2 rugby matches on friday at twickenham, so thats my friday sorted.
I have also been making new rings gemstone stacking rings, i love them they are awesome, they are not in the shop yet but will be pretty soon.

  2. Hi,

    First time I've commented :)
    Re: america trip. I spent two months last year going cross country on the greyhound. Had a blast. We mainly hit the big cities as it was harder to get off the beaten track on public transport and a limited budget.

    I had too many favourite places. On top of the usual, you should definitely hit up Austin and Baltimore (you need to go to this museum: http://www.avam.org/ )

    Just do it and see as much as you can. I loved it!

  4. with a mate but we did meet people travelling alone. i'd say it's slightly different to places like australia, as it's not as common on the round the world trip (apart from LA and New York) so we probably met more americans staying at hostels (which is good as if you then stay in their city they can show you around). have you checked out couch surfing? we didn't do it, but i've heard good things and if i went again would def be tempted. xx

  5. I love that skull tattoo! Definitely get it!
    Have a great time in America, I'm so jealous! I'd love to go travelling for a bit!
    I know how you feel about the breakup, when my ex dumped me just before Christmas 2009 I lost loadsss of weight and spent the whole of Christmas miserable and crying but things will get better. I promise. I thought I could never be happy again but I'm happier now than I was then! xxx

  8. That tatt will look rad my sweet and I think the same who cares what others think it's on your skin not theirs and even if when you are older you dont like it as much, it doesnt matter because at this point of your life you do and it means something to you! haha that probably makes no sense.

  9. That's a brilliant tattoo! I've been thinking about getting one for a while now, but I'm going to wait a bit more to see if I won't change my mind. But if you are 100% sure, go for it!

  10. Ahh I love that skull tatt- I've got quite a few tatts now and I know when Im old I'll look at them and smile :)

    Have an amazing time in America- apparently Arizona is amazing, I personally love Sanfransisco.

    Break ups are rough, sadly nothing but time will heal- but it will heal ;)
