This week has been a weird one for sure. It started off fantastic though!
Brandon started nursery school a few weeks ago, and had a day off on Monday, so we met up with my cousin and her little girl for a wee day out.
Shauni and I visited our Gran and Granda for a few hours, and took the kids along. Right beside their cottage is a big farm, with stables, horses, donkeys...AND PIGS.
How sweet are they? The pink one is Peppa, and the little shy dappled one is called Rosie. They're micro pigs, and are really well trained! The kids loved them - I don't think the feeling was mutual for the piglets though, think they were just gutted we didn't come armed with snacks for them. And surprisingly, they didn't smell!
Later on in the week I got the chance to finally play about with Jewel (which you may remember as my Wednesday Wig from last week!) and wear her out. I also tried out a deep smoky eye for the first time in a long time, using Vanilla, Evidence, Deep End and Ace from the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette.

Many apologies if these shots come out quite over exposed, I still haven't got the hang of iPhone photography - although I've learned how tapping different areas in an image changes the exposure. Ta, Youtube! I am utterly in love with this wig - so much in fact that this is my second one. It's just the colour that gets me; like I said in last week's WW, the colour is so incredibly vibrant and still manages to look like real hair. The curls are really bouncy and light, and I honestly feel like some kind of princess whenever I wear this!
So of course I went completely overboard and took hundreds of selfies just because I felt freakin' fabulous.
Case & point.
Speaking of Drown Soda, do you remember me mentioning them a year or so ago? Nat, the lovely lady behind the shop, sent me this adorable Kewpie doll necklace! We reconnected on Instagram last week, and I'm mega excited to not only get back in touch with her, but to be following all of her latest projects - take a look!
I think she pretty much had my heart at 'Big Bootay Bitches'...!
Sadly there won't be any more outfit posts for a while; I damaged ligaments AGAIN. This time it's my foot rather than my knee, but I'll still be out for a few weeks, and I'm incredibly frustrated, especially as we have our debut bout as the Dollies in six weeks. My Mam dropped off crutches for me to get Brandon to nursery, and I feel like an extra from Jeremy Kyle in them. Told you it's been an eventful week....aargh!
I hope you're all well!
