Braces and Invisalign

My teeth were wonky when I was a child because I use to suck my finger and therefore it pushed my two front teeth outwards. I had a brace when I was 13-16, it wasn't a train track but sort of like a retainer brace.
Pretty Naff really. At that age I wasn't really arsed about how I looked. Also my orthodontist didn't stress about the importance of wearing your retainer. Since your teeth constantly move throughout your life.
So there was little me not really fused and so thought that my treatment was up and my teeth would stay straight forever. Oh Noes. They have become stupidly wonky again. So all that time and effort was for nothing. I am obsessed with teeth, every time I look at someone I will notice their teeth straight away.
Now, I think its so important to have a nice smile. Your teeth are constantly on show, talking, smiling etc. So therefore I have decided to get Invisalign. I'm 20 years old, I don't want another metal mouth for another 1-2 years of my life. You don't even notice when someone has Invisalign, it just looks like their normal teeth. Obviously because I'm older this time I will have to pay for my treatment. I've been quoted £3000.
I have no confidence, I'm so aware that my teeth are overlapping and wonky. And it really makes me unhappy. The sooner I start the treatment the better.
I can't wait to come out of this, hopefully with a new smile.
I've also been thinking of getting whitening when my treatment is complete,
but thats a long while off yet. (hahha me getting ahead of myself.)
For some people its about having big boobs or no wrinkles etc,
for me its all about the teef!

I've wanted to go for ages now.
Every time my boyfriend asks me where I would want to go on holiday I say America.
I'd love to visit Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon, Orlando, Las Vegas, New York, LA... I can keep going.
Basically just do one big road trip.

It's my 21st Birthday in October and I wasn't really planning on doing anything for it.
Until I had the idea of going somewhere special.
I've asked my parents if we would be able to fly to New York for a week.
It would make my 21st out of this world.
They're really keen on the idea since they too have always wanted to go to America.
So fingers crossed it all works out.

Animals, big and small...

I have a mahoosive soft spot for animals, big and small.
I currently have a pig called Ted and a bunneh called Bertie.
So when I come across seriously adorable pictures on Tumblr I have to save them.
Here's a little collection:

Too Cute for Words!

Must get Healthy

I'm a sucker for all the bad things,
takeaways, sweets, etc...
I always go through a stage where I become a fitness freak and watch what I eat.
Today I ended up going to an aerobics class with my mum.
Corrr it was hard work.
I use to love sport when I was in school,
due to the fact that it makes you feel good and also I was good at it,
as well as being super competitive.
Netball and badminton were my favourite.
But then I sort of lost interest, my friends stopped playing etc and I didn't want to go by myself.
A lot of girl netball teams can be very bitchy and not very welcoming at all.

So my plans are to become healthier.
I'll be dragging Mick out for a run this weekend, mwahahhaa.

Rook Piercing

I think piercings can look really stylish on the right person.
Someone adorning a metal face is just a big no no and icky!
I had my tragus pierced at the beginning of October 2010,
it was my first 'proper' piercing,
and I love it!
I'll probably do a blog post on it at some point.

I've seen quite a few people with their rooks pierced and I think it looks fab.
Pain doesn't bother me at all,
I actually like the adrenaline rush you receive when you've just had a piercing,
(Wierdo Alert haha)
The place I go to in Chester is The Piercing Bodz,
I definitely recommend it!
I believe its about £25 which is nothing really considering I would plan on keeping it.
The only issue I would have is that rook piercings can migrate :O
I don't want that to happen >.<

What's your favourite piercing?

UPDATE: I got my rook done.
Here's my blog post on it including pictures: My Rook Piercing

Clairol Nice n Easy Foam Dye in Medium Champagne Blonde

Hello Everyone!

I'm currently fighting off the last bits of this horrible flu-y virus.
But I did dye my hair last night!
I used Clairol Nice n Easy Foam Dye in Medium Champagne Blonde.
It was £4.99 from Superdrug.

Hmpppfff is my opinion on this,
I'm not sure whether I like it or not.

My first initial thoughts was that the packaging and bits were a bit on the tacky side.
But meh I can overlook that!

As soon as I opened the dye it stank to high heaven,
it felt asif it was burning the back of my throat, NOT GOOD! :[
So I quickly ran to the window and opened it.

I followed the instructions to the T,
mixing A and B together, blah blah blah.
Then I tried to squeeze it out and all I got was a liquid mess.
Hmmmm I never saw that on the advert.
After a few squeezes the foam started coming but I had to press so damn hard for the smallest amount of foam to come out, >.<
Its still quite messy (as you can see from the pic) but is much easier to apply then regular hair dye.

It just about covered my head,
baring in mind I have medium length hair which is very thick.
Any less and I would have been struggling.

Left it on for 25mins and washed it out with that specific conditioner.
That made my hair feel super soft and luxurious.

All in all it was an OK dye,
my hair is still brassy but I can live with it.
I'm planning on getting some highlights put through just to brighten it up a little.

Have you guys tried any of these 'foam' dyes?

Girl Gamer

I hate the stigma which is attached to the 'girl gamer' label,
more often then not women are not taken seriously when it comes to gaming,
but I know many girls that play games and are actually better then most of the guys out there.

I've been an avid gamer since I was really little.
Banjo and Kazooie was my 1st game for the N64,

Then I went on to play the Sims (1 and 2),
I swear every teenager must have played this game at some point!

Next I played games such a Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto on the PS2.

I was introduced to COD2 by a friend and was addicted straight away, 
I bought COD4 and finally COD MW2 when it was released.

I played COD for quite a few years.
My boyfriend, Mick, was a professional gamer when I met him.
He use to play for Team Dignitas.

I joined Team Infused as part of an all girl team,
my alias back then was Qu33neY.

I was fortunate to attend lans (i-series)
which are sososo much fun and I got to meet so many great people/players.

After that Mick and me decided that we was going to start playing World of Warcraft.
We had a few friends that played the game already and so quickly leveled up.
This was back in 2008 when Wrath of the Lich King had just been released.
I have 5 high level chars:

level80 Orc Hunter
level 80  Tauren Shaman
level 80 Draenei Shaman
level 82 Blood Elf Deathknight
my main char level 85 Troll Druid - Hattie

I was lucky enough to be part of a great guild where we killed Lich King on 25man Heroic and therefore earning the title 'the light of dawn'

Then Cataclysm hit early on in December 2010 and was really good to begin with but the game has lost its spark for me and I have recently cancelled my subscription.
It is a really fun game to play but I just don't have any interest in it anymore.

My nights previously involved me playing computer games whereas now I'm a little lost to what I should do with myself!
I've been watching a lot more TV and just chillin' out in the sitting room with family/pets,
and of course I have got myself into blogging,
which I love already!

Sorry for such a random post ^^
