I’m starting my new job as a barmaid today (: I’m kind of excited but a bit scared at the same time, I hope I like it! I just need to go to town with Abi to get some work shoes and then I’m all sorted (: My uniform is so much better than McDonalds as well, I don’t have to wear those ugly trousers or those ugly shoes or that hat that gives me hat hair and I don’t have to wear my hair in a bun, I can just have it in a ponytail. It’s so great!
I created a new blog! This one’s going to be more fashion related..
The only thing worse than a man you can’t control is a man you can.
I got my hair cut today! It’s been so long, it really needed doing. I went to the cinema with Jonny last night and we ended up seeing two films, This Means War and 21 Jump Street. I would highly recommend 21 Jump Street by the way. This Means War was also good, very funny. I really liked Reese Witherspoon’s hair in it though, so I found this picture on the Internet from the film and asked the hairdresser to my hair just like hers. It turned out pretty well. I would post a picture but for some reason my iPad isn’t letting me do it.

I bought an iPad today! (: Best investment ever! It’s so cool! It was soo worth the £458 I spent on it. I have posted in a while. Valentine’s Day went really well. I went round Jonny’s as planned and he cooked me Carbonara which was sweet as that’s one of my favourite meals. He also bought me some flowers and some cute little pink socks with my name on them. I bought him Twister and some expensive lingerie for me to wear. It was a good night.
I can’t wait until Valentine’s Day! I want to go and see Woman In Black with him and then go back to his because he’s going to make me dinner (: I’m going to go shopping on Monday to buy his present (Twister) and I’m also going to buy something lovely for me to wear as well. I love Valentine’s Day when I have a boyfriend! This is only my second one. Last year I was with Brad and we stayed in and watched films and ordered a take away curry, which sounds quite boring but it was sweet because he knows curry is my favourite.
