Valentines Day

So, we didn't go out for Valentines Day because Neton was working. We were going to go out for cocktails the day after instead, but by the time we could leave the house it was too late. So we just ended up going to the pub! Ha, oh well!

Oh, before I forget, I uploaded a new video to my Youtube channel. I'm going to give the new Youtube a chance. I want to upload more frequently too, here's the video:
It's a dress tutorial.

Anyway, here is the eye makeup I wore:
I've been doing this shape for a while now so I'm thinking about changing it.

I had to crop this photo because I was in my nightie!:
But I wanted a photo with my hair like that. I look so shocked haha >_< Also, look how smooth my skin looks! It's because I started using finishing powder! I never used to use powder on my face because I thought it made it look a different colour. It makes my face look paler but it's not too noticeable.

I remember buying that nightie though, it not a nightie it's actually a dress (it looks medieval-y). I bought it from a carboot sale (second hand market) years ago. 

The woman gestured to the dress as I was buying it and said 

"So, you like dressing up then?"

I just laughed but I was thinking 'I'm actually buying this for the opposite reason - to 'dress down' at night.' It just looked comfy and long - most nighties for females are soooo short! I hate them!

Anyyyyhoooo, before we went out I did a little 'promo shoot' for a company. I don't usually include the photos in my blog but I liked these ones - I've cropped the sign out though:
Oh, I almost forgot to say! I did get a gift for valentines day:
It was wrapped so prettily! And the card was so pink! The gift was a 'Twilight' book. I never thought I would want to read that book - but I've become such a big fan of the films. So I was so happy to get the book as a gift! I love books as gifts, I don't know why.

Anyway, I got Neton stuff too. I made him a handmade card with drawings and stuff on. I bought him some jewellery - 2 full-ear-wrap things and a silver necklace.

I also spent an entire day making him a box of chocolates from scratch! They took soooo long! But it was really fun! Haha >_<
They all had different fillings too! I made him a 'menu' to go in the box:
This was the box, it was a little girly but I guess they don't make manly ones anyway! Haha >_<
I'm so happy with how they turned out! Neton said they were the best chocolates ever! Yay!

So yeah, I love Valentines day - I love all the cute stuff that's in the shops, there are so many pretty heart-shaped things. I think I might go and buy something if they're still there.

Anyway, we made our way to the pub. Here I am blinking:
I keep blinking in photos lately! I uploaded a blinking photo in my New Year blog too. I actually like them a little bit, I'm not sure why. I think because it shows my eyeshadow and eyelashes at the same time..... or something like that! Anyway, I might start doing it on purpose! Haha - if looking down in photos is a trend then why not blinking! >_< 

These are the nails I wore:
Purple! I wish you could see them better, they're so pretty in real life!
The butterfly is heavy!
Many of the nails had colour gradients on too!

I'll include more photos of them at the end of the post, I can't choose which photos to use since there aren't any great ones.
/\ Blinking again! Oops!
I really love our local pub. It's so cool. It has lots of really old things just laying around - like the suit of armour in this photo:
(I like my nose in that photo >_<)

It has really old weapons and paintings on it's walls too. 

When we left the pub we went to run around in the countryside by a river. It was soooooooooo windy though!:
It was windier than it looks too! So we only spent a couple of hours there and then went home.
I like my nose in this photo too.

So yeah, it was quite fun. Here are some more photos of my nails:
You still can't see the gradients properly and everything! Gah! Oh well! <3

Chinese New Year - 新年快乐!

Ah, this post is a little late but a while ago we celebrated Chinese New Year in Manchester! I decided to wear some cat ears, I thought they were like horse ears (year of the horse) but Neton said they're not! Ha, oh well!
I was going to wear a fringe, but it didn't look right to me:
The ears fell slanted backwards, and Neton didn't tell me! So I was walking around all day with the ears like that! >_< 
I didn't know until I got home and reached to take the ears off and noticed they were at the back of my head! I didn't feel them slide down! Then I looked at the photos and noticed they had been like that ALL DAY! GR!
If you look in the background (mid-left) of this photo you can see a very confused face! Haha:
I love zooming into the background of photos I take to see how people are looking at me. >_< 

Anyhoo, it was a fun day. China town looks especially beautiful when it's decorated for the New Year.
There was a parade with a dragon dancing through the streets, I didn't see it through since I'm too short! >_<
There were many stalls set up through the town:
There was a sort of talent show, I loved these dresses:
Unfortunately, we couldn't take any good photos!

When we went shopping later in one of the Chinese supermarkets a small dragon came in with people playing drums and symbols! It danced around the shop and in front of the altar.
When we were walking around we saw this man in costume walking down the street:
So, yah! It was a great day! 

Yesterday was a little shitty though, I received bad news in a few different areas of my life - so that sucks. I need to have a positive mind though, I want to start blogging more and stuff, so maybe I will try focusing on that a little more. I still have so much to blog about, I just haven't got around to it! 

马年大吉! <3
