dress: monki, boots: asos

I look very vampy today don't I? but I kinda like this look and really love this dress. After wanting it for ages I finally snapped it up in the sale, and I called it fate when my size popped back into stock online. The only annoying thing about it is that it's a leather jacket kinda dress, my coats look ridiculous with it because they're mid length and the dress comes down longer, so I can't seem to wear it when it is really cold out. I have finally finished my dissertation, YAY. I have to reference everything now with my bibliography which I have been putting off all day because it's super boring, but the sooner I do it the sooner I can get it over with. I went into town today to get out of the house and ended buying more than I planned, silly essentials like cotton buds, though... as well as some hair dye (hopefully it will come out how I want this time) and a new lipstick, I felt I needed to cheer myself up with retail therapy, as always. I have been feeling really down recently and I don't really know why - I think I am putting too much pressure on myself at uni, it's coming up to the end of my time in education and I really want to do well, and when I don't do as well as I want to, I beat myself up over it and start to feel really in-adequate. I need to believe in myself, but it's a big big weakness of mine.

my hands are so cold writing this, I may have to light some candles and wave them through the flames...
