stripy

Charity shop buys 
Cardigan 50p
Vintage silk camisole £1.00
Vintage cream and floral skirt £1.00

Today i received a little package from What Katie Found, it was filled with wonderful little goodies, i will be showing you all the wonderful little things that are inside the stripy package on monday, i will be be interviewing kate as well. So remember to head back on monday for a little lookie...
Also today i cut my fringe as you can see in the above photo, i haven't been to the hairdressers for about 6 years, i always cut and dye my hair myself, i am still in love with my ombre hair, but it has made the ends of my hair so brittle and frizzy, i really want to dye it a darker colour maybe a brown, not sure yet i am going to wait till i get paid tomorrow before i decide what i am going to do with it. I am just getting on with orders today, and writing lots of letters to people before i have to head out into the rain and go to work at 4.
I have also been working on a new header and ideas for my blog, to make it a tad more exciting. I am slowing getting a bit more confident with taking photos of myself, with thanks to blogs like being little, little chief honey bee, and jazzabelle's diary...It is very strange how someone you have never met can in-force in you great confidence in yourself. Seeing all these different types of blogs and girls having confidence in what they do really does filter out to other people and in-time the inspiration filters down to everyone. so i wanted to say thank you for helping me, even if i haven't told you and  you didn't realise.
I have come to the conclusion from these photos that i have a lazy eye, haha my brothers are always taking the mickey out of me for it, but i only get in when I'm tiered i must of being very tiered when taking these pictures hehe.
