Why the stress... I have an awesome dress!

I have had a stress on for the past week or so.  This boils down to a number of things: hormones, pile of work to do, saving for summer holidays... blah blah.

Anyway. It was my birthday last week.... yipeee! I received lots of cool treats, including pampering gorgeousness of brightly coloured make-up from Julia and Natalie, and Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner; a bottle of vodka; lots of books, including Wreck this Journal and the Girl's Doodle Book.

Do you remember me blogging about the dress I bought from DollyDagger? Well, it workedout a real treat. I even got papped! Here I'm also wearing the lipgloss Julia gave me, a winning combination! You know a true friend when they can buy you make-up that looks great, evenwhen you have awkward skin tones and a hair colour owned by less than 3% of the population...

We had a sing-song on the karaoke, before a good catch-up over drinks with lots of close friends. I met some really great new people, spirits were high, and I think a great time was had by all... I think this dress might be my lucky dress? Or was it the lip gloss?

So less of the stress, eh? Life's too short....

Oh, and, I was worried (not sure why) about my orders to DaWanda buyers... I just got my first rating of 5 stars followed by a request from the buyer for a custom order. Ahhhh and relax....

Do you have a lucky item of clothing or accessory?

Is that true only 3% of the population have red hair? I have redish hair, but sometimes looks brown, but if i say it's brown I get told off because it's red and if I say it's red I get told off and they says it's brown! I can't win, but I like it!

Thanks everyone!

G+G, yes, I think it's 3% in Scotland, and that's at its highest concentration.

Worldwide, it's 1-2%.

Check wikipedia under 'red hair' for lots of interesting facts!
