Today has been mental. In college for 9am, working on a collaborative project till 4pm, work till 8pm then straight out to get a food shop for the month with Stephen. I'm willing to bet that I still won't get a decent sleep. Just demolished a kebab and some ice cream (healthy eating can blow me today.) Bedtime <3

Sleepy eyes!

I'm too sleepy to post right now, but I went shopping with my mum today and got a few bits, and also I'm raging at Barclaycard because they've reduced my credit limit which means I'm almost at my limit and I will need to put some stuff on eBay so I can help pay it back. Rage. I'll post more tomorrow. Nanight :)

My jump rings came in the mail and my friend Carol from my class gave me some silver plated wire so I can practice a wire-twisting technique that I wanted to try! Yaaay! 

Stephen and I went to see Contagion tonight, it was okay, kinda scary in the sense that it was so realistic but it was soooo slow! The most exciting part was probably when I coughed during the movie and you could see people actively moving away from me :D

Makeup post coming later. I didn't do an outfit post today cause I don't feel that great about my body today :( Gonna go watch Hocus Pocus while Stephen's making stirfry. OMNOM.

Absolutely flooded with inspiration tonight, I honestly don't think I'll be able to get to sleep tonight, my head is buzzing! Think I'll start going in early on Tuesdays and Thursdays once I've ordered my silver so I can get cracking. So exciteeeeeed!
Yaaaaay! :)

Outfit and makeup for today!

I overslept this morning so my outfit was a rushed attempt and I could barely be arsed putting makeup on! But alas! I post anyway :P

Witch tinted moisturiser in Light
Collection 2000 Concealer in Ivory
Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Porcelain
Loreal Studio Secrets eyeliner in Black
The lipstick is Superdrug's MUA range, which doesn't have numbers or shade names, but it's red with gold flecks in it :) It's a budget range (everything's £1) but the lipsticks and eyeshadows are amazing!

Top - IronFist
Jeans - Dorothy Perkins

My sister Laura's friend just texted me asking if I would be willing to make something for him and he said he would be willing to pay. First paid commission! YEEEEAH BUDDY!

What my night has consisted of:

Making this, ordering rings so I can make a silver plated one (lazy. I'm supposed to cut them myself, which is what I did with this) watching Gossip Girl and deciding what I want to do with the stones I bought today. Also found an absolutely bitchin' Batman necklace that I am blatantly going to copy. No shame.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend (and rubies and sapphires and emeralds oh my!)

We had a gemstone dealer come into college today so I bought some stones to set :) I only know basic tab and cabochon settings so I only bought bigger, flatter stones so that I don't have to wait to learn to set them!

 L-R: Chalcedony, Blue Lace Agate, Hematite, Amazonite

I think the 2 smaller stones will be rings and the larger rings will be pendants, set in silver obviously!

My outfit for today

Something else I would like to make a frequent thing - outfit/makeup posts! So with that - what I wore today, even though I was only in college for a few hours.

Cardigan & Vest - Primark
Scarf - Internacionale
Skirt - H&M
Boots (not seen) - New Rock

First Post!

Okay - so I love Tumblr, and it's so much easier to post there, but it's full of bitches. I want to talk about my boyfriend and post endless pictures of me, us, my puppy, my family and stuff I've made without having to deal with 14 year old keyboard gangsters.

I should probably introduce myself - I'm Nikki, I'm 24 years old and I live in Glasgow, Scotland with my boyfriend Stephen. I'm a professional photographer but right now I'm studying jewellery design because the photography industry makes me sick. I've kept a diary since I was 13 years old, I moved onto Livejournal at 17, Tumblr at 23 and hopefully this will be the next part of my blogging journey!

This is me!
