A little life update


Hello any lovely people who are reading this - not my usual stuff I know. A few things have happened since I last posted to thought it would be good to do a life update. Getting the trivial stuff out the way, I finally booked my tattoo for the 15th April which is super exciting. It is going to be a hamsa hand (or fatima's hand) in between my shoulder blades. The design is perfect: lots of pattern, very feminine and illustration-like if that makes any sense, I wish I could of taken the drawing away with me to show you, but I suppose you'll see it inked on very soon, I will let it heal but if you want see it sooner just follow me on instagram: hellochloerose
Secondly I attempted to dye my hair blonde as you can sort of see. I have of course taken the picture in such a way that you can't see the truly hideous mistake I've made of the top and the back because IT'S NOT STAYING LIKE THIS. I'm booking a hair appointment soon to get it a warm chocolate brown colour. Perhaps I just need to accept I'm not meant to be a blonde (or maybe I shouldn't have gone to Boots on a whim and bought £5 blonde hair dye). So when it's all fixed and beautiful I will post a before and after picture and you can have a good laugh at my stupidity, don't worry, everyone I know has already. 
And lastly on a bit more serious note, I had to go into hospital on Monday after some strange complications with tonsillitis. I developed muscle ache on Saturday evening which spread all over my body until I was in excruciating pain by Sunday evening, plus I had woken up with a sore throat that morning. A trip to a GP confirmed the tonsillitis but I had to go to A&E the next day because I couldn't breathe properly (in retrospect I think it was a panic attack). So I got to hospital and they gave me all manner of things including fluids, antibiotics, steroids and a lot of painkillers all through IV because I couldn't swallow. They also were pretty sure I have glandular fever, which is yet to be confirmed. I could probably write a lot more about the last couple of days, it was one of the worst/oddest experiences but there's no need to give every little detail, I'm on the mend now so that's all that matters. I can't have alcohol for a while because glandular fever can effect your liver function, and after seeing all the sick people in the ward with me I saw an insight into my future and have decided to quit smoking. I'm starting to realise I need to live a better lifestyle than I am doing, I'm certainly not the worst out there, but my body doesn't appreciate even a little imbalance. 
On a happier note, I'm back home, I'm going to do some coursework, sort out my summer, see my friends, revise and go to Poland all in the next two weeks and hopefully the blog will get some treatment too! 
Bless you if you took the time to read this whole thing!

  1. Hope you're feeling better now, sounds like an awful few days! I actually really like your hair blonde, but brown will definitely be easier to maintain - I went blonde about a year ago but it destroyed my hair and after a few months I decided it was too much hassle! x

    1. I'm getting there, certainly not well yet, but compared to how I was I'm good thankyou :) This is what I'm thinking, I could pay to get the blonde done properly but I don't want my hair to start falling out I've already damaged it so much, wah, not sure if it's worth it :\
