Apologies for not posting much last month! April has really flown by - I can't believe we're now 5 months into 2013.....
And it feels like so much has happened, and so much more is yet to come! So, I have things to fill you in with! The first thing I should mention is that I changed my hair colour! I know I didn't have my dark pink/purple and blue (the dye that I did myself, after switching up the original job done by the salon) mermaid mix for very long (only about a month or so) but whilst I did really love it, I got less fond of it :(
I think I definitely prefer a more pastel shade nowadays, but in no way do I regret the triple mix :) I've gone back to my in-between (if you know me in real life, you'll know this stage well - it's the "blonde" stage in the middle of another hair colour yet to come) for the moment, mainly because I want a break from super bright colours and because I want to be silvery for a bit too!
Here's my hair story over the month in a few photos:
And then this was my hair on Friday (3rd May) with no filter on the photo
And then my hair today! (Saturday, 4th May - again, with no filter)
You can see some lavender tones and slight blue too! In real life it's a lot more silvery looking, which is beautiful! I think at some point I want to revisit a bright blue, as it was a colour I had never done before, and I actually think it suited me quite well! I don't think I'd have it all over though, it would most likely be a half and half job I think.
I found this photo online the other day of model Airica Michelle
I think you can see where I'm going with this idea...;D We'll see!
Anyway, I'll still be a wondrous mermaid for you all as I plan to put some pastel streaks/strands/BITS AND BOBS into my hair to keep it looking cute and all. I actually found a load of hair tinsel in a drawer the other day too! (I used to wear this stuff 2 years ago! Now it seems popular amongst Black Diamond members)
ACTUALLY bringing a point to light, thinking about it. When I had pink hair and was still really Gal etc and wore loads of d.i.a. (3 YEARS AGO) people used to think I looked stupid and thought my hair was excessive and didn't "fit" with Gal blah blah. Fast forward to 2012/13 and look at Black Diamond! People can't get enough of the girls. Fair enough I didn't tan, but the whole crazy hair and similar outfits? Credit to the girls (whether or not they be a Galcir) for looking the way they do, but I can't help but laugh at those who once said my look was stupid and would never look good :)
Anyway. Off track.
One of the things I think I'm looking forward to most about having lighter hair is THE ABILITY TO WEAR THINGS. You'd be surprised how difficult it can be to wear things with brightly coloured hair. Especially when you don't wear neon/brightly coloured clothes. Black is fine, and it's always been (and always will be) my staple colour of choice. It's the other colours I struggle with! How lame does that sound?? I love my pastel clothing too (love to bring a bit out in the Summer) but again, my bright hair looks too severe with it :( Maybe this is just my opinion, but I'll pretty much be happy to not clash with my wardrobe as much!
Other than my hair, I've been chilling out and meeting with friends and getting sunburnt! I went to Circa with Dec for his birthday which was fab. I've been really happy as of late, feeling like a brand new person! I've even gone on a few dates ;D But that's another story....
Last Tuesday I met up with my friend Maddie who I used to work and live with and we went to Westfield in Shepherd's Bush for some Retail Therapy! Their TOPSHOP is actually amazing. A lot better than the Oxford Circus one! Brighter, a nice selection, and easy to shop. Done, sorted! Happy customer. I purchased some tiny shorts, a beanie and some socks. Because one can never have too many socks. Especially if those socks are ankle length, black, and have frills around! That makes for one, happy Eilish.

AND AND AND!!Yes! Two amazing tops! One has a cat with a moon on it! And yes!! The other DOES indeed say "DON'T BE SUCH A MERMAID". Brilliant (albeit a little tacky). Had to have them! I also bought Mom jeans (at work). I love them and do not judge me.
On Wednesday I met Yukika for dinner and then I stayed over at Tasha's house with Maddie, Hev and Charlotte! All girlies I used to work with and don't get to see that often. Hev is going away for 2 months :( Upset at that!!

Last time we hung out/got hideously drunk and twerked all night it was super fun! This time around we just had a girly night and watched Mean Girls haha! Had a shit experience on my way though... It's always North London that I seem to attract the weirdos in! Long story short, this creepy black guy wanted to talk creepy to me so I moved away and then he shouted at me, walked away, came back, and kicked me in the leg :z and then kept going away and coming back and tried to follow me onto my bus and then stared at me until the bus drove off. Great :z:z
I think that's pretty much it for my news this week! I've also lost some weight somehow... Strange!
p.s. I bought another dress. I need a chance to be sexy though plz.thankz.
