Awesome, now my annoyance at my nipples is at the top of the page D:

I can't say I'm going to be productive at work today. I'm just too tired.

I want it to rain again. I love the rain.

Hop in the shower and just let it run on your breasts. It should help. I used to have itchy nipples when mine were pierced.... *shifty*

Holy crap was I ever exhausted today. Ugh.

OOOOooooh Delalyra, that is awesomely pretty!

More costumy talk! I'm going to the Discworld convention in Birmingham in August, and there's a gala dinner at the end. All the delegates get divided up into "guilds". I've been put in the Witches Guild and my (male) friend I'm going with has been cast into the (giggle giggle) Seamstresses' Guild*. The dress at the gala dinner is "Formal, Smart, Guild robes or Costume". To sit with your friends at the dinner you can request to be put in the same guild as them, so I'm going to ask to be moved to the seamstress guild too so we can go as victoriany** whores. Fun! He's good at dressing up like a woman ^_^

I'm thinking some horrible combination of this kind of thing, or the whores in Interview with the Vampire (like the one who gets put in the coffin). Can't find a decent pic of them though.
Spoiler:

So ladies... other than scouring Camden Market, any pearls of dressy uppy wisdom? For either myself or my friend?



*For non-Pratchet fans, that's a euphemism for the whores.
**I claim no accuracy in my estimated time periods and costumes.

"Retro" shops can be a good bet - there's one in my hometown that is specifically for 20s / 30s clothes, which would probably be perfect for you. Second hand shops will be a long shot. It all depends on what kind of budget you have really; there are some semi-decent places online which vary in budget, but most are higher end and USA-based, which might be too long and too expensive.
Good luck with looking though, and if I see anything in [insert chain store here] I'll let you know.

Also: I am totally jealous, and you are going to have so much fun! Sadly, I'm probably going to be nowhere near Birmingham at that point, despite living under its nose most of the year :)

I want to sleep. I think the itchiness was because of hormones. On that day I think I may have double dosed on my pills. Oops :\

AHAHA thats brilliant!! the woman thread is the guide for women when they last had Shark Week.

@moo: second hand shops sound like a good idea, and flee markets. I know a second hand shop in central london, but I can't say that it's really cheap... I could have a look for you in this area (east-ish) and of course, you're welcome to join me ^^ I could also lend you some lacey red&black stockings and gloves if you want :)

Flying Betty, have a look on the DWCon site. I'd love to know what guild you're in. You can request a transfer on the first day of the con, as I said.

So I went and got my hair done today! I was a little nervous going in, but since getting my hair done came in the wake of a morning of "Hey, all four of your wisdom teeth have to come out!" and "Hey, looks like you'll be needing some spectacles!" I was in a good mental place for it. My hairdresser was absolutely wonderful. I talked to her about what the previous hairdressers did and asked her advice on maximising volume and ease of styling while telling her what I was pretty much after. She understood my concerns about suddenly getting my layers back, which would involve a fair deal of hacking and was able to put into words what I was after and even better, actually do it. She chipped lightly away at my layers so while they're not as shaggy as they were, they feel thick and they've got a beautiful texture and they compliment my natural wave instead of resisting it, so no more having to whip out the straightening iron! She also took a minimal amount off the length everywhere except the fringe, and cut the fringe exactly how I imagined it. I am really, really happy. And she put a cuticle treatment in too, and the whole thing only cost me $29.

:D :D :D

Shark Week started today, which is good for a couple of reasons: I've now started the pill (and am hoping for none of the side effects the internets got me all worried about) and it means that when I snapped at my boyfriend last week over something ridiculously small and spent that whole night on the phone to him on the edge of hysterics it was because of PMS, not because I was losing it. (I'd thought it was a bit early, but what do I know?) Also I don't feel as bad about the ridiculous amount of chocolate I've had the past few days. Pretty sure I've never felt so cheerful about Shark Week. It's cramp day, though, so the cheerfulness probably will not last long. :P

Hooray! I remember being so damned relieved when I got my first period after I first took the pill. I was pretty convinced I had every symptom of pregnancy, which amused my mum to no end.

Tomorrow I'm entirely too busy. I have a shower to goto, then I'm getting my tattoo done, then I have Larp.
Then the next day, have office hours for another larp, which then turns into a Stagette for another soon-to-be-married woman.

I hope I don't explode. And I can't wait for my tattoo!!

Mmm.

Hehe, yea, I feel so much better when I can blame at least some of my utterly irrational behaviour on PMS. And last week definitely fell under utterly irrational, so I am very glad to know I just fail miserably at figuring out when I'm PMSing and was not actually just slowly going insane or anything.

At least when you have PMS you have an excuse for over-emotional behavior. I just started crying at the dinner table today when my husband started complaining about having a 9-5 job. And then he started crying and it was massively unpleasant for a bit.
We talked it out though and it is OK now. But I sort of wish I had some excuse beyond I was tired from work because I had lots of people yell at me for things that were not my fault.

On tattoos, very scared of them. I don't like needles, much less ones that don't have to be near me.

Being yelled at while at work, especially for things you didn't do, is a very normal reason for crying over "nothing" later in the day. You aren't allowed to yell back or react in any real way at work, so the hurt goes underground until you're in a safe place to work it out. In theory, you should be happy that you and hubby are safe enough for each other that the tears can finally happen (for both of you).

(I say "in theory" because, well, it's hard to feel happy about crying over "nothing".) (And it wasn't nothing -- it was very much something. Being nailed to the wall for something you did is hard enough. For things you didn't do? I usually fantasize about burning down half of the city while bawling like a baby when that happens. Peace, inner strength, and all that not-very-consoling-stuff to you. Have some chocolate and some good sex, not necessarily in that order or at the same time.)

This reminds me, I could use a good cry.

Also Shark Week is scheduled to start on my birthday. Grrr. I can delay it using my pills, but I did loathe the week and a half of spotting that happened last time. I'm tempted to just let it be and have Shark Week, but that means a) no birthday sex, and b) the ubercramps. I'll probably skip it. /ramble

What scares me a little is that I think I don't get PMS.

So, how many people who know me would cringe on hearing me say this? I have no idea... and that's the scary part.

I use conditioner on the hairline, it washes away a little easier than lip gloss or vaseline. That being said, it you also have to reapply if you wipe a splodge of colour off your face.

Violet Vixen is my colour of choice, for a really rich purple. For some reason *all* the photos I try to take of my hair when it's purple come out too dark to see the colour and it just looks like I have almost-black hair.

Has anyone else used henna on their hair? I'm a really dark brunette, so after the henna oxidized my hair was a dark brown with auburn highlights...but for a couple days it was nice and red! It got rid of my dandluff, too, which was awesome.
you may remember me from 2008 or 2009. I left for a while. I'm now sporadically back. I tumble here.

That is awesome. I used it a long long time ago but found it didn't do much on my dark brown hair; however it might have been the stuff I used as I was a cheap ass-student then and although I can't remember exactly where I got it was probably not necessarily a reputable outlet :)
What with the added dandruff benefit I might do that now that my purple is all washed out (I will reapply but I don't have the energy atm, my weekends are so busy and it's too involved for a weeknight).

If you do, I got mine from here. And they have an accompanying page that tells you how to do it (pdf).
