Valentines - Long Distance?

Sorry about the lack of posting, its been a week! I got the flu and didnt get out of bed for a few days, and yesterday the cold weather had caused a cable in the telegraph pole outside to snap, meaning we had no phone line or internet!

Im pretty sure none of you know this, and im a little skeptical about writing this because a lot of people will judge me for it, but im gonna go for it.

This valentines day im sending my gift across the ocean to another country. The boy? A dutch boy who ive been talking to since i was about 14, whos always been there for me, who ive never met and who ive been dating for coming up two years. Yep, you read that right, im in an online relationship, untill april that is :)

Its hard not being able to see the person you love, especially when all my friends are making plans to go out on a date, or stay home and cook a romantic meal for their boyfriends. I think one of the most important gifts you can give to someone, whether they be 5 miles away or 500 is something meaningful. Sure chocolates and flowers are nice, but i prefer something a little more personal!

Thats what im sending, tommorow morning!
To most people it wont look like anything special, but im sure my other half will appreciate it!

The picture im sending is from the Etsy seller cultscenes, it came in a cardboard frame but i pull it apart and put it in a blue wooden frame i bought online. This has significant meaning to me and my other half because ive never watched wall-e before, im not quiet sure why because we have it on dvd, but regardless, it came up in converstaion some time last year i beleive that id never watched it, he agree'd itd be the first thing we watch together when we meet in april, hes already seen it, but knowing my love of all things animated he wanted to watch it with me for the first time. Plus from what i hear wall-e and eve are a super cute couple!  
The frame's blue because its my favourite colour ;)
The card i bought is again from etsy, what can i say i love that place for unique handmade stuff. The seller woodlandink has some beautiful cards so if youre looking for something special, check it out!
I think it goes without saying why this card is appropriate, but after nearly 2 years im so excited to finally be meeting him!

Finally ill be sending 2 bags of minstrels, Stefan (the boyfriend) always see's me eating them on skype and was curious about them. I dont think they sell them in the Netherlands, so im sending 2 bags, one for Stefan and one for his brother. I just hope he doesnt fall in love with them as theyre so hard to get in europe!

What are you getting your other half for valentines? Or are you gifting yourself something this valentines?

Recent Haulin'

Im supposed to be on a shopping ban with the exception of necessities, a clarisonic mia and things im specifically saving for, as you can see, that didnt quiet last!

Im kind of skint now, what with having to buy a new shirt for a friends birthday, having to buy alcohol for that party, and buying her a lovely present, my bank balance is feeling a little worse for ware.

First things, i bought 2 things from buyapowa, i swear that site will be the death of me! Such good deals on there, and ive purchased lots of things from them and never had any issues.
The Nicki Minaj mini's were down to the bargain price of £8. Ive been on an OPI kick recently, and i much prefer the mini's as ive yet to ever finish up a nail polish. Finally from buyapowa, Bobbi Browns creamy concealer kit in porcelain, which got down to £19 in the end. Finally, something in my shade! I recieved it this morning and quickly whipped some on before running out of the door for breakfast with my mother, first impressions; its not as creamy as i thought it would be, and its a little drying. That could just be because it had been with the postie out in the cold for however long!

The fashion tape i got from ebay, for about £2. I also got a backless bra but didnt feel like posting pics on the internet! Its for the shirt im going to wear on saturday for my friends party, youll see why i need those in a minute ;)

As you may or may not know, i had colourful hair for about a year, starting blue and gradually adding pink and purple. Not going to lie, i was a complete novice at bleaching hair, and well, my hair was and still is a little fried from it. My hairs red at the moment, with a pink tinge thanks to some left over pink dye i added. I missed my blue hair, so i thought instead of bleaching my own hair id just buy some platinum extentions and dye them blue. They were cheapy ones from ebay, cost about £10 for 4 singles. Not the greatest quality but they do the job. I spent most of yesterday dying and trimming them.

Onto my final and most expensive purchase..
I hadnt intended to buy this, infact it was sold out on the urban outfitters site. I saw one on ebay in my size and decided to go for it, 24 hours later, after waiting till the last 5 minutes to buy, i paid the grand total of £38 for it. £8 more than RRP but i couldnt find another one anywhere and i needed this in my life

Sorry about the stock picture, but i couldnt get it to photograph without looking funny!
Im scared to death that im going to ruin it or tear it because it is so fragile, ill have to be careful what i do with this shirt!

Have you bought anything recently?
