Yeah, lots of photos here! I don't know, I just liked a lot of them. Call me vain, but it's pretty rare when I look at photos of myself and go, "wow."
So if you've ever wondered what it looks like where I live: wonder no more. When I say we live basically right up against a forest, I mean it. This patch of forest reaches around the backside of our house and goes on up about 1/3 of the street that takes you downtown.
By the way, check out Hivennn on Etsy. She makes the coolest jewelery! I'm going to try to buy one of her Lucky Dip rings sometime soon. I hope it comes in citrine. (Also, she's such a sweetheart. My quartz ring got lost in the mail and she sent me a new one without any fuss, with a small gift! She's awesome.)
I wore this to hang out with my fiancée
Though, these photos were taken days after that actually happened, mainly because it was the day before I got my hair recoloured and the state of my hair was really dragging me down. The last thing I wanted to do was take photos featuring my horrible roots and my ever dulling blonde. I'm glad I waited; I am just loving my hair lately.
I apologise about how awkwardly deflated this bustier looks on me. I just...don't have boobs. See, it's pinned up to fit me, but I haven't gotten around to sewing it up yet. I actually have to take the pins out again, because they're all in the sides and they bunch awkwardly. I'm going to be sewing the stitches up in the back, in two lines parallel to the zipper, so hopefully it won't bunch. I sewed it up originally at the sides and it was just not flattering, at all. Nothing I do seems to fix the cups, though. I guess I'll have to invest in some cup-fillers or something. Whatever they're called. I don't know. (And I just bought another bustier from UO that I'm taking in at the moment in between typing this, and the cups are strangely wrinkly. I just don't understand.)
Also, I would like to call out my friend Eli/'Mobung' for a sec -- see? I can smile sometimes!
Looking at these photos...I worry that constantly covering half of my face with my hair looks lame. I really love how it looks, but I'm afraid of looking like a cyclops or something. Eh.
By the way, here's an explanation behind the post title:
