Skyrim and other things

I couldn't think of a title...
So, this is my makeup from the other day
My hair was bad though, because I had braided it for the waves like 3 days before this, but we ended up not going out. All the other days I went out with my sunglasses on, just for walks in the countryside so there was no need to style my hair.

Anyway, it was soooo knotted! Oops! >_<

It turned out ok though:
This is what I wore:
I really love the pattern on the dress, the blue and pink look so pretty to me!
I used some pink hair chalk in my hair. I also braided in some flowers that I re-found the other day! I used to braid the same flowers into my hair when I was about 15/16. It made me want to do it again, I need to find more things though because back then I used to braid anything into my hair! My hair was full of braids with different things braided in. Wool, flowers, long plastic things, etc.
My nails were made from scratch this time. I usually use clear false nails to decorate but I couldn't find any in the shape I wanted, so I made my own from acrylic powder. It was my first time using acrylic powder like this! I need much more practice! Haha
I uploaded a photo on Instagram of the nails in progress if you're interested:


I only joined Instagram quite recently, I didn't think I would like it but I'm obsessed!
I think I made the acrylic glitter powders too thin, I didn't add enough glitter when I was mixing it. I have learnt from my mistake though, I'm making some more that aren't as see-through (further down this post).

Here's a close-up of the hair chalk and one of the braids:
I love this nail shape, it's currently my favourite nail shape:
I have a long way to go with making the bases, but I'm happy at how they turned out for my first try!
So, yeah, anyway! We just went for a walk and I filmed a few videos which are pretty unusable so I'm going to re-film them (story of my life!). I also had a little video interview for a new tv show but I don't know if I'll be on it yet. I'm not allowed to say anymore than that though!

Anyway, we went to the pub for the rest of the day/night and then we went to get more drinks from Asda. I really don't remember it at all!
Man, I was drunk! Haha

Anyway, after that we went dancing around the countryside. It was such a clear night! We laid down to look at the stars and I remember ranting on and on about how amazing this universe is and how you can look at a star even though no humans have ever been to that part of this universe yet. Also, I bet there are so many other beings within those star-systems. Like, at least one of those stars will be the sun for a planet full of intelligent life, and we can stare at the star that heats their planet, yet it's so far away. I wonder how many beings look into the sky and see our sun as a distant star, and if they think something similar.
Anyway, it was falling on deaf ears! Apparently, Neton doesn't find that stuff interesting, it's just dots in the sky to him! I can't even imagine, I could stare at the night sky forever!

A while ago, we went shopping in Leeds. I love shopping in Leeds! I was looking for some new cloth to make another dress with but there wasn't really anything there. 

I mentioned in a previous post that I fell over in Leeds, I slipped into a split! Haha >_< My feet were really hurting from walking around in such big heels - I never learn my lesson!

So, I got some cheap flat shoes to wear so that I could shop longer... 
I always wear odd socks for a reason I don't know, but I didn't expect to have them on show! Oops! I couldn't not wear socks with them because I would have got blisters.

It was funny though so I didn't even care - it's a good job I don't really get embarrassed! When you wear makeup like mine, people rarely look at your feet anyway!

Oh, but guess what! I got blisters anyway! I wore ugly socks and I still got blisters on the back of my ankles! They were bad too, I still have them now!

I was very lazy that day though, I didn't wear my extensions or gyaru nails. I tried painting my nails and adding glitter and stuff:
It's so funny that I'm really good at making complex false nails, but when I do my own nails simply, I suck!

Oh, by the way, there's a dress up game with me in for anyone who's interested! I played it and these are my favourite looks:
You can play it HERE

Speaking of games, I don't know if I've blogged about this yet but we got an Xbox 360 recently. I have never, ever played on an Xbox before and I was so shocked that I liked it! 

The story to how we got it is funny though! Neton stopped at a game shop on his way home from work because he wanted to get me a game (he surprises me with little gifts sometimes). He picked up a Wii game and went to pay for it with his card but the guy said he needed to spend over £5 to pay by card, so Neton picked up an Xbox 360 and a bunch of Xbox games and went back to the till. He ended up spending over £100 (obviously), when all he went in for was a cheap little game! Haha >_< 

So, yeah - I've completed Fable 2 and started playing Fable 3 but I can't really get into it. 

Funny story about Fable 2:

So, when I found out I could get married I thought "Hm, I want to marry someone and give them a better life". So, I decided to marry a prostitute! I decided to wait until I could afford a big house though. One day, I was walking through town and I saw a beggar, I wanted to give him something so I gave him a crappy ring I had forgotten to get rid of. Anyway, so the guy thinks I've proposed to him! I'm like "No, whatever dude, just sell it or something. Bye!". But no, whenever I talk to someone in town, they congratulate me on my engagement! The begger must have told everyone! I don't want my prostitute to find out! 

So, I decide to kill the guy. Only, I can't do it because it feels so wrong. So I told him to follow me into the woods and I planned on letting the wolves get him! However, as I'm walking through the woods, I turn to look behind me, to make sure he's still following me, and I see his smiling face. He says "I can't wait to get married!".

Damn it! I can't kill this guy, I'm so soft! So I ended up taking him to a far away gypsy camp and buying him a caravan. I never saw him again but I bet he was happy, and I lived happily ever after with my prostitute! Haha >_<

Truly, anything can happen in Fable 2.

I love Skyrim though! Wow! I hated it at first because it was in first person, but I love it now - it's so detailed and it feels like I'm really there! Does anyone else play it? Feel free to give me advice/tips!
I want to find games that I can play online with Xbox 360, in like a WoW setting - does anyone know of any?

Anyway, so earlier in the post I mentioned trying to make my own nail bases but I made the acrylic glitter mix too weak. I tried again and they turned out better this time!:
The shape is still off though! Well, practice makes perfect, right?
I also think that the nails should start off thinner near the cuticle area, they look too thick I think.

By the way, the nails that have pink in the non-pink part were purposely done that way, I ran out of the peachy glitter and I'm planning on covering most of the nails in deco anyway!

That's all for now, until next time, bye bye! <3

  2. Your nails look much better without all that junk on them. You should keep them like that (the purple pic with your natural nails) only maybe hold off the glitter and just use plain nail polish without the sparkles. I think their garish. You should just do a french manicure instead then you would look uber pretty! You nails probably put people off you a lot, especially men. Your makeup as well, you look much better without it all. Your roots look dark, I always thought you would look better with darker, more natural hair.

  7. Those first nails are amazing. I love the way you decorated them. And I had the same thing happen to me one when I was shopping and walking around a lot. I had to take my heels off and underneath were mitch-match socks...
