Why I want really long hair

At present moment, my hair looks a lot like this wig, with a full fringe (symmetrical, straight across) and about waist-length. My last proper haircut was summer 2012 - I couldn't really understand the mumbly Chinese hairdresser's questions so didn't really know what I was agreeing to, but I walked out with thinned, armpit-length, slightly layered hair. I didn't intend it to be cut that short but he did a very good job of it. Around winter 2012 my mum trimmed it a bit, taking off probably a few centimetres, and since then I've done nothing but snip off individual split ends now and then. (Though I still have loads of split ends. Urgh.) As of this afternoon I have decided that I am also going to grow out my fringe. There, I've typed it, and I'm going to do it now. To motivate myself, here are the reasons I want long hair.

"You are lost, you can never go home"

dress: New Look
bag: Restyle.pl
sandals: Clarks
Evenstar: birthday present from O
bracelets: Accessorize, Christmas present from K

This is my hair on a good day.

One of my most prized possessions is this Evenstar necklace O got me for my birthday. She really likes Lord of the Rings too, so it was difficult for her to part with it! I adore jewellery from one of my many obsessions because I feel awesome wearing it, and it's a great conversation starter. For example, on the taster days for my new school two years ago I quite deliberately wore the One Ring round my neck in the hope of finding fellow-minded people. It worked a treat and I'm going to try it when I go to uni too.

I've found that I pretty much never wear anything stripey. It's just not a part of my wardrobe. That's not to say I don't think they can look amazing though. I've also found that, whatever your size, you don't need to be scared of even the boldest of stripes, because it's all about balancing your shape out. (Take a lesson from Gok!) Here are eight of my favourite stripey looks I found on LB.

Pea Head

on deviantART
If you're my friend and it's your birthday in the summer holidays when I have sackloads of time, this happens. I spend one of my mornings staring at multiple photos of your face in an attempt to draw you something nice. It only looks a little like her and I ran out of space on the page to make her hair long enough but it will do.

"You may rise to find the sun"

I got into uni! And now I am really worried. I was so ready for this but now I feel I am really not. What's probably going to happen is I'll get there with all my stuff and sit down and cry for a week until lectures start and I actually have to start learning things again. Anywho.
One Ring: Mordor
t-shirt: H&M
bag: 'Made in Italy'
shorts: Peacocks
socks: Next
boots: Safiya

Aren't these little shorts the cutest? I'd been looking round for some ultra-comfortable loose shorts for summer, but was reluctant to spend £20 on them, but then I found these in Peacocks for less than £7. They feel like pyjamas, and because they're shorts, I can roll around in them without flashing any unfortunates who happen to be around.
