not a necklace post

So, I am still disgustingly sick and I do not really feel like wearing a necklace today much less taking pictures of myself.... So instead I going to leave you with some of the awesome Youtubers that I have been watching for the past few days :)




 This is Jack from JacksGap.  I find him and his brother Finn amusing....  Although they are sometimes a bit rude so watch out :)


This is the Daily Mix... It is random and amusing :)


Beauty with Sprinkle of GlitterFleur De Force, and Zoella :)

And, that is it for now :)  I also just realized that they are all British...  There you go :)

circle

So this is the second necklace...


There is only the one picture because the little bit of sick that I felt yesterday has decided to turn itself into a full blown cold :(  So... I didn't really feel like sharing a picture of my face.

I had to get dressed this morning for physio so I did really wear this necklace today but, I am currently curled up on the couch watching silly Youtube videos and clutching my kleenex for dear life :)

Have a good one :)

silver heart

I have a lot of necklaces that I absolutely love but I am not really a necklace person (more of a rings and earrings person if you wanted to know) and I hardly ever remember to wear them :(  So, in an effort to wear them more often, I have decided that I am going to wear one necklace every day this week... and then obviously post pictures of them on here :)  We will have to see how it goes :)

Here is necklace number one:

close up...

...and on :)


Also,  I finished my last exam yesterday so I officially survived my first year of university!!! :)

BUT, apparently studying and stress or whatever makes me sick blggh....

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Rory

A little while ago Suze Geeks Out posted this list of books that Rory reads (or mentions) throughout the course of Gilmore Girls (which is one of my favourite shows), and I was shocked to see how few of these books I had read (now admittedly it is a pretty hefty list :)).  So, I am thinking maybe it would make a good summer reading list :) 

I have crossed out the ones that I have read (although I am sure I have missed some), and I will continue to cross them out as I attempt to read them all :)
