I took soooo many pictures of this outfit but I was tense jawed and sporting a rictus grin in 99 % of the images. My jaw always gives me away when I am being a grumpy bastard.

Well, I hope this selection camouflages last Wednesday's grump induced lock jaw. And thinking of lock jaw:

Guess what, I am getting those wisdom teeth of mine pulled tomorrow. Not looking forward to the procedure itself but I am really excited about sticking it to those four molars. Take that you trouble makers!

I am stoked to get a couple of photos of post extraction bruise-faced me to share though. Everything is a photo-op chez diversions. Now to stock up on ice cream..

hat: primark
earrings: DIY
necklace: DIY and fair
dress: modcloth
belt: supermarket (asda)
trainers: eBay


  1. what an adorable dress and belt! great look. and i have a problem with locking my jaw when i'm angry/upset too...especially in photos it seems! good luck with the "operation" (you do call it that right? a minor operation i guess...haha!)

    Haha, looking forward to that!  I looked like a chipmunk for a month since they took mine out two at a time!  Glad to see the squirrelly dress again!

  3. Yay! The perfect excuse for endless chcolate custard and berry smoothies!! yum (and good luck!)
    Also - I was being a grumpy pants with my beloved photographer tonight too. His solution: "Bec, stop making that face or everyone will think you're a moron" - that made me smile :)

  4. Custard! Now that is a brilliant idea :) It'll go perfectly with all the ice cream and milkshakes :D

  5. Good luck with the wisdom tooth extraction! It is the strangest feeling being put under and waking up like nothing happened. But hey, at least you get some meds to numb the pain! Looking lovely in that dress. And I love that grin! xx

    Oh, I'm glad you're getting those troublemakers pulled!  And it's okay to be grumpy; I'm grumpy quite a bit and I say it's just fine!

    ahh some last minute wisdom teeth widsom: DO NOT LAY DOWN AFTER THE SURGERY! Like, keep your head propped up for as long as you can because that is the best way to avoid all the ghastly swelling. Also, suck on wet tea bags to reduce inflammation, the tannin helps constrict blood vessels :)

  9. Awww...the dress is lovely. I hope your teeth don't hurt too much.

    I love the colour of the dress, and your hat is divine! <3 I hope all goes well with your surgery, you poor wee thing!

  11. that belt is so good! nice to see you've kept up with your manicures, the one nail different look suits you

  12. Thanks :) I am keeping upright and I fear I might not get to do bruised images at all thanks to your advice :D Awesome!

  13. I hope you don't swell, you get to eat lots of yummy liquids, don't bruise and enjoy being propped up in bed with a good book. Good luck grumpybum (sorry that is what I call my daughter when she is in a gumpy mood) ^U^

  14. I know I already commented on your wisdom teeth. . .did you get swollen? I didn't at all but I know people who have. I always love this great dress of yours!
