Beware Of The Spitting Dinosaur

When I first packed for my few days back home in north Wales, I made sure I had plenty of wooly jumpers with me, lots of leggings, warm socks and boots...Whilst driving home, the sun burnt in the bright blue sky and my dashboard boasted twenty three degrees. Little did I know I was about to spend the next few days exposing my ghostly pale skin.
I arrived back Tuesday afternoon and spent the evening with Lora, drooling over her beautiful hand made jewellery and envying her talent!
Wednesday, I went to get my hair dyed (and my hairdresser got over excited with pink hair dye, pictured above!) I also spent the afternoon bargain hunting with my dad for gorgeous vintage tea cups and got some super cute ones! The collection of teacups pictured are actually the ones I had at home, so if you see any you like, please let me know as they will be transformed into lovely teacup candles asap!
Yesterday, I went to Chester Zoo with my friend Anwen. They had a temporary dinosaur section with moving dinosaur models (these scared the life out of me....especially since my boyfriend has been obsessing over dinosaur programmes on tv recently!) Anyway, one of the dinosaurs actually spat out water....Luckily not directly at us, my Canon would not have been impressed with him for that!! I will have to upload some more pics of our trip in another blog post!
Oh, and I tried out leopard print nails with my new nail art pen + models own polishes which I absolutely love!! Let me know what you think as a first attempt!!
Hope you're all having a lovely week!!!



  1. Sounds like you've had a great time :D I haven't been to Chester Zoo in years but the dinosaurs sound really fun. Oh, & i love your leopard nails - great colours! xx
