Insta-update (Insanely picture heavy)

June 7, 2012

I figured, since the last time I did a proper post I’ve been away twice and got a new flat, I would do a update post. I’m still in the process of moving (won’t be in there untill around July 13-15th) so I won’t be doing much blog-wise. My current flat looks like an actual bomb has hit it. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to in pictures (there’s lots, be warned);

•This is Liam, my fiance, looking dapper whilst on the train to Aberdeen (to catch the ferry to Shetland)
•Me eating a chocolate coin from Starbucks, Yum!
•View from the front of the ferry, on the way out of Aberdeen Harbour.
•Sunset in Shetland. Such a beautiful island. I fell head-over-heals in-love with the place first time I went. I can’t wait to settle down here.
•Me and Liam posing in his granny’s bathroom.
• This cupcake was from ‘A Fine Peerie Cake Shop’ in Shetland. If anyone is ever up there, go. It’s a beautiful place and their cakes are gorgeous.
•This is a cupcake from Liam’s Uncles wedding. I do believe the brides mother made these. Wow is all I have to say about this cake.
• Legs! I love’d my tights, couldn’t resist a photo of them. They got ripped not long after 🙁
• Two landscapes of Shetland.
•Liam on yet another train! This time we were off to Yorkshire. We usually get a bus because they’re so much cheaper, but there was deals on the trains.
• My little sister! The cutest wee girl in the world. You don’t want to see her when she’s in a    mood though ahah.
• Slam Dunk North! This is why we went down to Yorkshire. I bought my little brother a ticket for his birthday but because he is under 16 he needed a guardian. How convenient :P. On the left is Austin Carlisle from Of Mice And Men (If you’re into that kind of music and you get the chance to see them, don’t miss out. Best band I saw at Slam Dunk). On the right is Adam Lazzara from Taking Back Sunday. One of my favourite teenage bands, I felt 13 again watching them. I saw them last year, but they were even better second time round!
• Liam playing with my mums snake!
• My dog Dylan ‘helping’ my mum and Liam clean the garden.
•The bottom of my beautiful dress teamed with the cheapest, yet cutest slippers ever!
• Liam and I’s first Domino’s! We had a farewell dinner for my friend Lauren. She’s transfering uni’s so we won’t even be living in the same country anymore. She’s the best, and pretty much only friend I’ve made since moving to Edinburgh, so she will be missed more than she’ll ever know. I’m a loner once again! I’d also like to wish her good luck as she is in hospital today. <3
• The view from our balcony! We’re moving flat. The new flat is 3x’s the size of the one we live in at the moment, and has two balconies! Plus it is cheaper as we will be sharing it with our good friend, and Liam’s work-mate Ailsa.
• These are our new flat mate’s pets. She was away for a while so we were looking after them. Good practice for when we’re living with them and looking after them fulltime! Left is Ami, the nicest rat ever. She would lick your fingers forever if you let her.  Right is Billy. He’s an albino hedgehog. He’s just become a dad! He and Tilly (Ailsa’s other hedgehog) just had 6 baby hedgehogs, so we’ve got our hands full for a while!
•Super noodles, not the most glamorous food but needed. I’ve put a spending ban on me and Liam. which includes fancy foods. We’re paying rent in two flats, I’ve just finished my job so am looking for another one, and I don’t get any student loan untill September so we’re very tight on money! any review posts in the next few months will be of products I already have.
• and finally, lips. I’ve recently started wearing lippy. Usually I don’t bother, but I love it at the moment. I have a fair few but never wear any of it!  I’m also doing the #PhotoADayJune challenge if you want to follow me (Username is @qolour)
and that’s all!
I’ve also changed my blog name to qolour (pronounced Colour). Liam’s old COD name was qolor-fuu (Colour-full kinda). He does’t use it any more and said he since I’m “such a colourful person” (no idea if he meant my hair or what hah!) it’d be perfect for me! I changed the spelling a little bit since I’m British so colour has a ‘u’ in it.  Tell me what you think of it? does it sound silly?
I hope everyone is having a nice summery time so far!

    wow plenty of amazing pics! and i really enjoyed this little trip through your life! i´ve never seen an albino hedgehog before!

      Thank you!
      I hadn't seen one untill I met billy! The hedgehog he just had babies with is a 'normal' coloured hedgehog, so expect many albino, normal, and mixed baby hedgehog pictures! The babies have skunk stripes, so cute!

      The tights were from primark, but after their baaad quality (ripped as I was putting them on) I went on the hunt for more. Found some on ebay by searching 'flower ttights' and they look so much better quality. Will deffo be getting some 😀

      & Yes he's really a hedgehog! He's so sweet too, so gentle.

      I'll be sure to check it out! 😀 xxx

    Picture heaviness is alwayssss good in my book!! All the little animals were adorable!!! Especially the rat, I love them, they're such sweet pets (I've had about five in my years of growing up)
    And your cupcakes look delicious 🙂

    • Reply Jayde June 12, 2012 at 7:42 pm

      As a photography student I definitely agree!
      Ami is so so sweet! My best friend as a child had rats, but they were quite nippy, so I was weary when I first met our now flat mates rats last year, but Ami is more likely to lick you to death than anything! Pandora, her other rat is so quiet and shy too. Officially in love!XX
