A Few Photos, and No Sleep!

Good Morning everyone!

It's precisely 7:30am at the moment, and I am wide awake and blogging!

Want to know why I am so awake? Of course you do...

I'm wide awake because I haven't been to sleep!

On friday night, i fell asleep on the sofa at about half past midnight, woke up at about 9 or 10am, and went back up to my room for a bit, had breakfast and then promptly fell back to sleep, but for some reason, I didn't wake up until 5:30pm.

Why, i've no idea... but almost all of my day had been completely wasted in bed -_-

So, naturally, I wasn't tired when it came to going to actual sleep... which wasn't until around about 5am (two hours ago) so I thought, fuck it, let's just pull an all nighter, and get through the day as normally as I can, and then go to bed near the eveningish so that when I have to get up for school, I won't have had one hour sleep.

So consequently, here I am!

This post is about nothing in particular really, i'm just trying to kill some time really!

In other news, we recently had some headshots done for the program for our variety show in the summer!

But being the camera hog I am, I couldn't help but get a few extra photos done, but I wanted some done with my friend Beckie, but being the people we are, not a single one is serious!

But I feel that they are too good to not share (:






Thanks again to Taz for providing them! They are probably my favourite photos of all time (:

Harley Quinn Inspired Outfit

Harley Quinn Inspired Outfit
Today, I went for a Harley Quinn inspired outfit, after staying up late last night reading Gotham City Sirens! Which is such a good comic book series! SO good!

I adore Harley Quinn, and I always have, in case you couldn't tell from... well this...


or this...
or these...


So as you can see I really love the damn character, she's a laugh and a half, and utterly brilliant in every way, especially in that particular comic series, she's ace, and I adore seeing all three of the Gotham Girls in their own series! Brilliant!

                           Anyway, so today I went for this outfit choice!

Without Jacket

With Jacket

Combat booties :3


Earlier today at school, we had headshots taken for the program being made for our Variety performance next month, so this was mine (:

I appreciate the waistcoat and jacket don't blend well together, so the next time I wear this, I think i'll leave it out and keep the top underneath that reads "I am the girl anachronism!" From The Dresden Dolls song Girl Anachronism. I opted with bunches hanging down rather than pigtails sticking out of the side, for two reasons... 1) Bunches disguise my sticky out ears far better. 2) It might look bordering on cosplay, and it wasn't really what I wanted to do at school :P 

So that was my outfit today!

What's your favourite comic book character, and/or do you have any inspired outfits that have come from these characters? I'd love to know!

Hayley Out!

Amy Pond Inspired Outfit

Amy Pond Inspired
My outfit for today is Pond Inspired, it's quite a chilly day, so I wanted something warm and comfy, with a hint of cute charm to it, so I thought that channelling Amy Pond would be a good move! Do not regret that! I am comfy, warm and damn adorable, if I do say so myself ;) My big Lincoln hoodie that Lincoln University sent to me once i'd confirmed my place is my comfort item of clothing, it's big and warm and so damn comfy, not to mention, the sleeves are so long that sometimes my arms get lost in it, it's wonderful! Everyone has a comfort item of clothing, I thought I ought to make mine slightly stylish... well as stylish as I get anyway ;)

The Hoodie that looks like a dress <3
My three layers, I've been toasty all day! <3

That's all for now! Let me know what your favourite comfort clothing is in the comments below! <3

Hayley! <3

Love Leather & Lace

Love Leather & Lace
Above is my Polyvore.Com creation, a combination of clothes, shoes and accessories to create a casual yet slightly rock-esque look.

At the moment, lace and leather have been my two favourite combinations. There's something about the smell of dusty vintage lace combined with the smell of a proper leather jacket that just really makes me smile. Not to mention the contrast between dainty and rebellious works so well together, especially if a white or cream coloured lace is used.

A mixture of inspiration caused me to throw this look together, and partly it was because I literally threw it together! I was trying to decide on an outfit for the first day back at college, with only two lessons of drama for my whole day, and no cleaning work to do that day, I wanted something casual yet slightly cool, and it was only when I stacked my lace dress over my leather jacket that I realised the two would be perfect for the following day! It was after that I started working through some accessories on Polyvore.com

I decided to take inspiration from, of course... Joan Jett, keeping my hair loose in it's JJ style, and adding a few accessories I think she'd approve of, whilst also keeping it slightly classy with a black and white polka dot neck scarf.

But this time a lot of my inspiration was taken from Taylor Momsen, in this particular outfit below...

Her dress may not be lace, but she still looks effortlessly cool, and I must admit I'm a little envious of her long blonde hair! Not to mention her sunglasses, but only because I had a very similar pair that I broke only 3 days after purchasing... but luckily they were only £1...

                   
Here is the final outfit, you'll have to excuse my bloated food babeh! I'd eaten like a pig that day! :P
My necklace was something I made myself, rust effect included, I'll add a tutorial soon.

So there's my outfit! Let me know what you think! What's your favourite combination?

Giant Hoodies, Chinese Pizza Ice Cream Buffet and Hayley Cooper On Being 1/3 Ginger.

Hey'all.

"Is you okay? Is you? Good 'cause I wanted to know." - Is how Glozell1 on youtube opens her most recent videos and it cracks me up every time.

Okay! So what's new!

Well it's *officially* easter now! Which means we have two weeks off! Woopdeshoop! So naturally, this is the only time I will ever have a social life, because all the people I hung out with an awful lot are back for some more hanginz.

Though saying that, I hope to still see the people who I regularly see anyway :')

To kick off the hangathon, I stayed over at Beckies on Friday, and ended up being so adamant that she needed to see the Austin Powers Movies that I ordered the DVD's online, and considering she is coming over tomorrow, they had best arrive. GOSH.

We ate pizza and made pancakes which was fun :3 watched some old shit on the telly, i can't even remember what xD It was a good night :')

Then today I went out into town with Zoe, we went for noodles at a chinese place, but we were still hungry and thought the place was a bit pricey to be buying another box to share... especially as they boxes are smaller now, but more expensive... so we went to pizza hut, originally just for ice cream... but then we found out there was a Pizza Buffet... Oh lordy. We ate so much. I feel and look bloated as hell, like a fucking beach ball... but it was so worth it. After gorging ourselves, I got a few things, including... you guessed it... some more hair dye!

BUT.

This is actually my successful venture! ...Sort of... :P

I bought Superdrugs Own (because i've used them in the past and they are always brilliant.) Copper Mango Burst because they just rereleased their ginger shade, so I had to try it!

Now, due to all the dark dye on my hair from last summer, the darker half of my hair, which thankfully, is starting to progress towards the lower half of my hair, which may end up being chopped off anyway if I get my original length cut back in... but the middle section is a darkish red, and then there are my regular roots growing through.

So I thought "Okay, I know the dark tips are here til they grow out, but the red bits may lighten, and the roots will dye bright colours really easily." So I put on a box of the ginger dye, and it, as expected, did little to the dark tips, but lightened the red to a more vibrant colour, and also gave it a copper tone, meaning that when it fades, it will fade to ginger! :D And the roots, well they are a really light ginger colour! Properly light!

However, the roots were only about two inches, give or take, so they aren't hugely visible without actually looking directly at the top of my head, or under my fringe (: BUT. It's progress! Because it means that I know what dye to get when I want to next dye my roots, and it means over the next few months, I will progressively get more ginger, so by uni, i will be officially 1/2 ginger xD

Here's what I look like at the moment (:

As you can see, my hair looks like fire! >:D Which I absolutely adore.

Now as the roots grow through more and more, my hair will gradually get more visibly ginger, which I am excited for :D It looks a little blondish here, but it's quite coppery (: It looks pretty natural too, so perhaps it will look like i've got ginger roots growing through xD One can dream :')

So that's my hair! 

Now onto something that came as rather something of a surprise! 

I woke up the other morning, opened my bedroom door and there was a little package that my mum had put there, and it was from Lincoln University!

I had put them down as my firm choice recently, and as a result, they sent me a hoodie!!

Not just a hoodie though, the softest, biggest, warmest, most comfortable hoodie ever.

I love hoodies, and I adore my red one too, so now I have two to switch between depending on my level of laziness and comfort that day xD I can see this coming out during variety rehearsals if the weather stays the way it is now. 

Because they don't know everyones size, they just get them all in large and dispatch that way, which means this thing basically drowns me, which I kind of like really, because it's a nice, safe, comforting hoodie! I also feel officially excited for Uni now. Of course I cannot wear this if I don't get in xD But I think BG does hoodies too xD so i'll at least end up with 3 hoodies from different uni's as my red one is Oakland Uni in america xD Beautiful.


So comfy. So official. So sleepy.
