Creativity In My Veins.26.12.14
Happy Holidays, to all you beautiful people.
How's it going for you? For me, the fact that I've got exams next month is dampening my mood. Sometimes, I really wonder if education is a must? All I want to do is alternate between sleeping and hugging the radiator in my bedroom.
I bought this hat when I had braids in and now that they're out and my hair is pulled back in a bun, it's a bit too loose but hey, I won't let that stop me from wearing it out.
I came so close to giving this post the title "Sherlock Pimp" because let's face it, I look like a cross between Sherlock Holmes and a cool big pimp daddy.
It is totally my style and I wouldn't dress any other way for anyone. All that matters is that I'm comfortable in what I'm wearing.
I will admit though, with the new year just around the corner, I've been considering stepping out of my comfort zone a little more often. Challenge myself more and all that. I might invest in a pair of chunky block heeled shoes, who knows? Never pointy heeled shoes. No.
These are my oldest pair of docs. I got them ancient & pre-owned off eBay about three years ago. Every now and then, they need a glue job but they're holding up fine. Obviously, I need shoelace-tying lessons because the picture above is just sad. These aren't the original laces. oh no. Those ones gave up on me in October so I had them replaced.
I got used to paying for shopping bags over here in Wales so when I was handed one for free after shopping in Brighton's Dr. Martens store, I was confused for several moments. Personally, I believe that people should be asked to pay for bags. That way they will learn to re-use the bags they've got at home. Unless they're just wasteful and... I'll stop there.
I had a good reason for getting a bag. I didn't have any on me seeing as I wasn't in my own town. Usually, there's always a spare bag or two in my backpack. I had just a small cross-body bag with me as I travelled light.

This will probably be my last post for the year and for a while. Till exams are over. That's till the end of January. I will try to update next month but I'm not promising anything.
So in advance, I'll wish you all a Happy New Year!
What are your goals for 2015? Mine include being more eco-conscious, being resourceful and more hard-working. I'm getting too old to be lazy. I also plan on using little to no make-up. This means, I have to up my skin-care game and stop eating so much junk food because really, that's what makes me break out.
