Discovering the inner Me

It's been a bit of an up and down week! I had a fantastic time at the Wedding Show with my mum and sister on Saturday at the NEC...when I go to my flat in Manc my Ebay/Twitter Wedding dress had arrived!
I had a bit of a Monica from Friends moment and hung around the flat wearing it! Thank goodness it fits!!
Once again a MASSIVE thank you to all the people on Twitter who came together so that I could buy this dress! Ok so my wedding isn't until September next year..but that gives me plenty of time to find the perfect shoes, bridesmaid dresses and Oh - Grow my hair..which brings me to my next point!
SO.. after finally being at ease with my short hair.. what do I go and do? I hacked off the front and side on Sunday evening and dyed it red. WELL the red didn't stick and the DIY haircut was a disaster.. Jim very kindly said that it was OK but bless him.. I knew I had failed myself..
I was due to have my latest tattoo addition on Monday afternoon, but Studio 81 called and said that my tattooist had done his back in at the Convention (which took place in Manc all weekend). So with the afternoon off...I set an appointment at Toni and Guy and they sorted me out a treat! I am well happy, and they have cut it  so that the time after next it'll be at a length where it will be nearly level and I can have both sides the same length.. this is what I am aiming for anyway as I want my hair to look good for my BFF Victoria's wedding in June but for it to be a great length for my own wedding next year!

Tuesday I went to London for a total of 20 minutes only to have to come back to Manchester again and guess what? I am doing it all again tomorrow..but I might be there for a whole hour! Oh the life of a garment tech!! OH! I am going to be made senior tech in a few excited! I just hope Manchester is as kind to my Jim as it has been to me and he gets a job soon..times like these that we wonder why we moved in the first place...

AnYway folks... thought I'd leave you with my fave outfit this week so far!

Tusday Night, Nearly Humpday

Evening all bloggerland! Can you believe it (I am sure you can) I've changed my hair AGAIN!! I have gone all pink and I am loving it for as long as it lasts!!
So Saturday was #TwistoNW.. A  little gathering of my more Northern Twitterati and it all kicked off at the Roadhouse! We had @Vixy_Lix, @Lexplex_, @Jimdnb, @LittleMarsy, @J_Lester, @RachaelHowarth, @LucyJaneHunt and me @Julia_Hearts_U! We also had some non-tweeties which we are still trying to convert!!
So the band was great (altough a lyric 'I was born in 1989' made me feel MEGA old), the company was fab and it was an all round good night! Stacey (AKA Little Marsy) came all the way from Leeds on her toddle - which was very brave and

she was lovely! I can't wait to hang out with her again! Once we all got thrown out of the roadhouse, we headed next door to a dingy cheap pub and stayed there (again) until we got thrown out!! At about 2am... We
decided to keep the night going ya know and we ended up in the Casino where we stayed until about 3am and I won some money! Hell Yeah!
 I am so glad I joined twitter as I have met so many ace people! One of the most recent amazing things (last year it was meeting @Vixy_Lix and becomming her bridesmaid this June) is that my good friend on Twitter @IrishSeaViking brought some of my twitter friends together on our Facebook Group #twistos, and asked
them all to help me in purchasing the most amazing vintage wedding dress that I had lost on Ebay.. They did and today Ade paid the money into my PayPal account and I am happy to say on Thursday Gabrielle is re-lisiting the dress for me as a Buy It Now and it will be mine!! And all thanks to Twitter... One Amazing Website for Social Networking and Forver Friends if you ask me..

Take care and keep blogging

Lots of love ...
