if you've been reading this then you'll probably remember how excited I was over the fact that it was october. WELL HOW FUCKING WRONG I WAS. everything that could have went wrong for me, this month, has. 
it all started with liverpool, where I drunkenly smashed my phone (I think I stood on it) and I haven't been able to afford to get it fixed yet. because I also spent the middle of the month POOR like actually couldn't afford lunch poor. it wasn't until my birthday when I got some money and it didn't seem fair of me to spend the money I received from various different family members on fixing my stupid mistake. it's still broken and I've legit been using my ipad as a fucking phone for nearly three weeks.
I also left my camera charger in liverpool and although my dad bought me a new one from ebay (because he felt bad about buying my sister a stapler and me, nothing) last friday, it's still not here EVEN THOUGH IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HERE BY TUESDAY and so my camera ran out of battery today, leaving me with a very limited number of photos to choose from for this post. serious annoyance.
when we were in glasgow last week, there was loads of halloween shops dotted around and obviously, I had to drag brendan into every single one, much to his annoyance. and basically, in one of them, the girl was really nice but she conned me into buying liquid latex, for £7.49. I'm saying she conned me because she did. I got home and had a look around my room for face paint, which I found with the exact same bottle of liquid latex and a receipt, A RECEIPT FOR £1FUCKING.49 FROM EBAY. I'm not even kidding when I say I will actual be covering myself with liquid latex on saturday, it'll be all over me, the soles of my feet, in my hair, you name it.
one of my brand new gerard cosmetic lipsticks was broken before I even used it. now I'm not being funny right but I've bought collection 2000 lipsticks for £2 before which have lasted years without breaking, never mind running out, which I'm pretty sure this pathetic little thing will do after 5 uses, it's fucking tiny. 

so I'm not having a good month am I but it's payday tomorrow and then IT'S OFFICIALLY FUCKING HALLOWEEN ON SATURDAY. FINALLY!! I'm currently listening to the nightmare before christmas soundtrack to hype myself up. the best compliment I ever received was when a boy told me that I reminded him of a tim burton character. the second was when my boyfriend told me I looked gaunt.

"...and a hand-me-down robe, you must be a weasley." 
mind when we were all younger and the only thing worse than two stripe trainers was being forced to wear clothes that had belonged to someone else? mine were usually from my dad's friends kids or my older cousins and it was always mortifying being handed the black bin bag of shit and having to say "thank you" with a fake smile. WHAT A THING OF THE PAST! secondhand clothes are in my top 5 favorite things on the planet. whether vintage or relatively new (but you just couldn't afford the price at the time and then it sold out), secondhand clothing is an absolute godsend. some of the nicest things I've ever bought have been from charity shops, 99 pence dresses you say??? that's going straight in my basket. and at any rate, charity shopping is the funnest way to shop, I'd 100% rather spend an hour in a charity shop rummaging through the masses of clothes to find that one perfect skirt for £1.50 than go to a high street store and spend an hour deciding if I wanna buy that one mediocre dress for £48 and then immediately regretting my decision, either way, as soon as I leave the shop. seeing rack after rack of the same boring print is exactly that, boring, gimme 80's frilly sleeves and 60's patterns and ripped hems and little burn holes in sweaters, gimme clothes that have lived, clothes that people have loved.

I feel so grown up. I feel like a cowboy. I've been walking funny all day. like you know when john wayne walks his john wayne walk in his john wayne boots, I've felt like john wayne all day. they've also given me a total work out, my stomach muscle's are aching now, I was planning on wearing them for walking around liverpool on saturday but I don't think I'll be able to spend the night dancing afterwards. boo. I'm defo in love though, I couldn't stop thinking about them after I saw them and I kept getting butterflies every time I did, they're so so so so beautiful. adult boots for a adult girl. cowboy boots for a cowboy girl. whatever.

I've never worn my coat on the blog before, BUT LOOOK AT IT LOOK AT IT my baby. angels may as well have made it. *sits waiting for someone to crack a lame big bird joke* some smart ass wee guy actually asked me where keith harris was, I WAS LIKE THAT FUCKING BIRD IS GREEN YOU DUMB SHIT I also had to google that guys name there. I get more compliments about the coat than nasty stupid comments. in fact, what's the point in actually making nasty stupid comments to strangers? yawn grow up.

my birthday and halloween all rolled into one perfect tiny little month. october, it even sounds so cute. night comes earlier and stays till late in the morning and cuddling on the couch with little dog and halloween chocolate and fur coats and october. october. what a wonderful time to be alive. can you marry a month, 'cause I wanna.

the month is actually kicking off quite nice, weather wise. it's lovely out there today, a slight breeze but no worse than any we had in summer. I'm personally looking forward to it getting colder, I say this and then as soon as it hits november, I'm like "NOPE NUT I'm never leaving the house again, winter is too long, let me go back to bed, tell my boss I have pneumonia, I'm not coming in." but honestly though, the cold months stretch on for what feels like an entire decade and the warm months (if you can really call them that in this godforsaken place) are gone in the blink of an eye, I'd prefer for it to just be october and november super cold and dark, december SNOWY AND WHITE LIGHTY and then the rest of the year can be like warm summer but not so much that you feel like you're in the sahara. lemme be the weather god.

I've got lots of fun things lined up for this month, tonight I'm off to see kevin bridges with my sister in glasgow, yay for scottish comedians and irn-bru and kilts and stuff. next weekend I'm going to liverpool for the weekend, I've never been before so I'm soooopa excited for that. bae is taking me to stay in glasgow for my birthday and we're gonna do loads of vintage shopping and thai food eating and drinking in cool bars. and after that it'll be like halloween and I'll get to play with fake blood and liquid latex and spray paint my hair and shit yaaaaaaaay.
