[37.] Sooo... I got a tattoo ♡

Hello dear readers (^-^)

So... yeah!
A few weeks ago I started a tattoo D:
It was very spontaneous decision, but I've wanted one for a long time.

3 weeks ago, I went to my first appointment.
My friend Ellie is a tattoo artist and did the honours (^-^)!
I've admired her work for a long time.

The stencil on! A bit blurry and with my awful tan :3
 So here I am, in the shop in London.
The stencil is on me!

Finished the first session like this!
 After 5 hours, we finished the first session like this.
I was kinda glad we stopped here, as I had enough at this point!

Ellie is a really amazing tattoo artist.
She was making sure I was OK through the entire session.
She even has a sweetie jar on her workstation in case you're feeling weak!

Ellie's workstation is so colourful!

I think I also felt more comfortable with her doing my first tattoo,
because I already knew her! She was one of my crazy colleagues :3

I paid the whole tattoo up front and then arranged a 2nd session with Ellie.
I came back after 3 weeks so we could be certain the tattoo healed properly!

Finished the 2nd session!
Ellie's photo :3

 After another 5 hours, this is the finished result!
I love it so much ♡ Thank you, Ellie <3

It might not seem like it, but this tattoo has a lot of meaning to me.
It's a representation of my life and all the things I love.
I'm not going to go into too much detail, though!

So yea, if you're in London, please look up Ellie and get a tattoo!
You can view her work at http://instagram.com/lagingerli ♡

[36.] Getting my Frock On!

Hello dear readers (^-^)!
(if there still are any)...

So uhm, it's been a while!
Sorry there were never any "Long Lost Travel Series"...
To be honest, I lost my motivation to write.
I've been having a hard time at work and when I come home,
I just don't feel like sitting in front of a computer again...

Today, I finally feel like writing about some things I've been up to!
So, without further ado, let's start post [36.]

I went to London for a weekend!
My boyfriend & I left here on Friday after work.
It was our 1 year anniversary that day <3
I've never been so in love with anyone...

Beautiful flowers I received

We exchanged our cards when we got to the hotel in London.
We are soooooo lame XD

On Saturday we did our separate things and I ended up at:
Frock On! The Tea Party Club's 6th Anniversary event.

I didn't feel very well during the day, so I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped.
I did, however, have some great chats with some old friends.
And! I also made some new friends from Holland <3

Here are a few of my photos (^-^)!

My Dutch friends <3
With Ziggy, she's craaazy!

The main shopping hall with loads of stalls!

With special guest Hitomi from Grimoire <3
She was so sweet & adorable!

With my favourite Portoguese, always cheering me up <3

On my way out I got a goodbye photo with Reina & Florrie, love you!

My main purchase, a beautiful OP by Millefleurs <3
So happy to finally own a piece by them!

I couldn't leave without these beauties!
Tights from Grimoire <3

I hope you enjoyed my photos!
I didn't stay for very long, because I wasn't well... 
but I had a great day!
