So today I have spent a grand total of 4 hours doing politics, maths and physics revision and I think it is fair to say I am absolutely exhausted! I still have about another hour of maths to do later today too so I’m giving myself a break in between.
Since my hand is killing me from writing like crazy for the past 4 hours – here is the evidence of all my hard-work:Oh the joys of being left-handed…
Anyway, since my hands were aching and I can’t physically write anything without getting cramp, I decided to try out some hairstyles. For some reason braiding or just generally doing stuff with my hair helps to relax my hand muscles after writing for long periods of time (although it does make my arms ache so kind of a win-lose situation).
I’m still trying to decide what to do with my hair for prom so was searching on the internet (as you do) for some braided half up-do’s and came a blog called Twist Me Pretty and instantly fell in love with this particular hairstyle:It’s called a twisted crown braid and you can find the tutorial here.
So I decided to give it a try and it surprisingly not that hard once you get your head around it! Here is my attempt:I’m pretty pleased with it for a first attempt!! I actually really love this hairstyle and I THINK I might use it for prom but knowing me I’ll probably change my mind by then! But for now I’m thinking I will do the twisted crown braid but before I actually do that I’ll braid my hair to make it curlier because as you can see it is a little unpredictable and today is one of those days where it has decided to not be very curly. I do need to practice it a bit though as getting the bobby pins to stay in at the back is quite hard when you can’t actually see what you are doing.
Sticking with the subject of prom, yesterday I bought my bracelet for prom!!! So that means I have everything now: the dress, the shoes, the clutch bag (you can see all of these here), the jewellery…now all I need is to buy the ticket!!
Here is the bracelet I bought:And here are the earrings in case you don’t remember. I bought them a while ago and I’m so happy I managed to find a bracelet that has similar beads to my earrings so they kind of match!I’m so relieved to have finally got everything – at least that is one less thing to stress about!
Also this week I have gotten back into art a bit. I did a sketch of some fire tulips (not what they are actually called, but that’s what they look like and I don’t know their actual name) in my living room which I am actually quite pleased with. I don’t normally do still-life sketches so didn’t really know where to start but I got there eventually!
And also yesterday I finished painting the cover of my sketchbook – I painted the front cover a few years ago but have only just got round to painting the back cover! It is inspired by this t-shirt I bought last summer and I am in love with pattern so much I NEEDED to paint it!
Anyway, so that’s what I have been up to for the last couple of days. It feels odd still being on spring holidays when pretty much everywhere else is back at school. I keep waking up and thinking ‘oh no I’ve overslept – I should be at school’ then realising I don’t have to go back until Monday! It has really messed up my body clock but I guess it will all be alright when I go back to school (didn’t think I would ever write ‘alright’ and ‘school’ in the same sentence but there we go).
Hope you are all ok! Bye! 🙂
