Last Week's Shenanigans (16th October - 22nd October)...

Finally! A long week off with my beloved fiancé! I've been really looking forward to it because we had so much planned to do and ended up being very productive along the way. The main thing that happened to me? On Monday, I dyed my hair! Finally! I've been wanting to do this for a while, but wanted to find the right place. I opted to go to Rockalily Cuts because they specialise in hair colouring, vintage cuts and looked like they knew what they were doing. It was the best decision ever, Charley really looked after me and did an amazing job! I was worried that my hair would be damaged in some way too, but it came out looking far healthier and smoother than it did before.


Our friends who came over later that evening loved it, and I got a great reception when our group got together for a big 'Bake-Off' night! I'm so pleased as making big changes is really difficult for me, so this felt like a really big step! Also, this salon is so cute so everyone should visit it at least once. I'll definitely be going back.

On Wednesday, Mat and I went out for the day for a little bit of shopping, dinner at Spaghetti House, and then the highlight of the day: watching The Book Of Mormon. It is so funny! It's very self-aware which I love too and I honestly think it should be necessary for all white people to watch this to understand how ridiculous we can be and the real meaning of #FirstWorldProblems. I'd definitely recommend it, especially if you're a fan of shows like Avenue Q.

On Friday we decided to go to Westfield to do some shopping, and I bought a ton of bits that I really needed - clothes, cosmetics, skincare and even a Christmas present or two! Like I said: productive (and expensive). Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun and when we got back we had a wonderful evening in. Both Thursday and Saturday were 'rest' days for us though we did have a few errands to run here and there.

On Sunday, I had the best time. I went to my very first Wedding fair! It was fun to have a look round at so many different stalls for dresses, photographers, make-up artists and jewellery among so many other things! Mat and I brought along my gorgeous sister/maid of honour, two of my lovely bridesmaids that live close by and his best man. We all had a lot of fun, I even got to try a couple of things on as did the bridesmaids. It was the National Wedding fair (the big one) so it gave us a much more solid idea of what we did and didn't want and we'll most likely attend some smaller ones throughout next year.
