Hogmanay Pugh-style. I donned my turquoise wig, fake Gareth Pugh wedges, Zana Bayne wings and a whole lotta leather to bring in the New Year. This here wee blog also celebrated her first birthday.
Celebrating the end of my 20s at our Labyrinth inspired ball and my first ever MAC make-over. Got spoiled rotten on Valentine's Day!
Experimented with long extensions before going from black to ginger.
Experimented with curls, blue and black lipstick. Still obsessed with Gareth Pugh. Won a beautiful Sak Label necklace from Wobblin Betty and met a whole host of wonderful gals at the Scottish Ballet Blogger Meet-Up.
Discovered Loreal Majicontrast and finally achieved ORANGE (and my most popular post ever...). Endured hours 6 and 7 under the needle to complete my peacock backpiece. Got a kiss from the world's number one rock star - Mr Robin Guy *squeal*
Mental month at work - resulting in quiet month for blogging. Went for hot chocolate delights with my brother and his fiance to celebrate their respective birthdays and wore one of my favourite summer outfits.
July started out badly. We lost our wee cat, Lydia. She was the happiest, wonkiest wee creature and we still miss her wet nose kisses and her pneumatic purr.
The rest of the month was all about the HAIR... I flirted with the Fauxhawk, crushed on other bloggers, rocked out to some 'quality' hair metal and began dabbling with the top knot. July ended on a happier note - by getting tattooed with my 2 besties x
Back to a slower pace of life in August... Was treated to a wonderful hot stone massage courtesy of the lovely ladies at Zen Lifestyle in Edinburgh and jetted off to sunny Tenerife for a week's holibags. Got prickly heat which sucked, but also got to pet a monkey - pet a freakin' monkey!!!
Discovered the naughty but terribly nice, Age of Reason scarves (Mr G blew me away on Christmas morning by sneaking in an extra wee pressie - the Bondage Doll scarf!! Outfit post will follow in 2012). Chopped my fringe after a nail biting blog comp selected "long hair, short fringe". Went to visit my wee mammy for the Largs Viking Festival fireworks display.
FINALLY got my eyes tested and snapped up 2 bargain pairs of specs from Glasses Direct - highly recommended! Won a fantastic ring from Bad Passion. Rocked some trademark leopard print and vintage Jaeger to Glasgow's best fashion event, In The Company of Wolves. Made a life-changing decision to retrain as a florist...
Another month of highs and lows. November started out with an early birthday surprise from the gorgeous Miss Spinal Lou - the little minx only booked me in to have my ears pierced! Just in time for party of the year - our pals' 'This is NOT a wedding party', party!
Things turned sour shortly afterwards when my Grandad passed away. But all lows must surely be followed by a high - a lovely, long-overdue family reunion.
Made the decision to call it a day with the orange hair and revert back to my trusty old black bob. Dabbled in cosmetic surgery, took part in my very first official Floristry class and generally had a good time this month. For those hardcore fashionistas out there, check out Mr G's wonderful 'Spinning Bird Kick's Editorials of the Year.'
Plans for 2012?
Out with the old and in with the new: New hair, new career, new flat and new skills - driving and saving! Can't wait to read all about everyone's plans for 2012. Also looking forward to discovering new blogs, so, if you follow me and I haven't checked out your blog yet, leave me a wee comment below....
...and that about wraps things up nicely for 2011.
I wish you all the best for the New Year!
