A Weekend of Change

I fancied doing a different post today. So I thought I’d share my weekend with you. It started off better than expected. The results to the exams I sat in may were released a week earlier than expected and I’d done better than expected and was really pleased. Definitely started my weekend on a high.


My hair pre dye!

My Saturday morning started with a trip to the hairdressers. I’d got a highlights packaged off KGB deals for a bargain price. It didn’t start off brilliantly with the hairdressers opening very late!! 


In the hair dressers. My pink from Christmas time was still in my hair and as the bleach was developing I was worried as I had a pink band but luckily it all came out.


But I’m really pleased with how my hair turned out and it’s nice to be back blonde. I’ve not been blonde since November and I had really started to miss it.

As L needed to pop into town on Saturday we met up for coffee and shopping. I wanted an opinion on a faux leather skirt I’d bough the week before too. 

This is the skirt but in black. Which isn’t online for some reason. It was only £16.99 but it’s a great material and looks like a really good faux leather. 

I gave blood on Friday night so celebrated with a new piercing. I’ve wanted a new piercing for a while but always put if off due to having to wait a while before giving blood again. I fancied going for it this weekend after Blue Banana have piercings for £10 (£15 if you go for the premium metal like I did). The offer is online if you have a Blue Banana near you. 

I couldn’t decide between a few. I’m a huge surface piercing fan and really want my neck re-pierced (I had it done but a very drunk 21st birthday meant I lost it) but due to being a bridesmaid with my hair up in August I decided to wait. 


Just after it was pierced. The guy warned me they can be big bleeders there but I was lucky.

I went with the surface piercing on my tragus that isn’t pierced. For any wondering it hurt a little but only lasted a few seconds and didn’t hurt much after. I do have to be careful when I’m washing my face as I have to be gentle with my skin.


All clean. I hope it heals well. I’ve just noticed I’m missing the stone in my piercing!

L and I went to our fair share of shops. I was trying to be good but there were some very beautiful dresses around. L got tempted and I can definitely see me borrowing the beautiful one she got. We both have different shapes but can share some clothes! She’s eyeing up my new skirt too!!

On Sunday it was such a beautiful day I didn’t want to spend it in doors. I strolled over to my local Starbucks and realised it had a garden out back. It was lush to relax there and read my book for a bit.


It was such a nice chilled weekend and I’m excited for the week to come. It’s my birthday this week. L and I are celebrating with afternoon tea and a spa day, my parents are visiting for a meal and I’m going home on Friday and off out with friends!! I can’t wait for Thursday to hurry up!!

Hope you all had great weekends and could enjoy the sun!

Love M
