It's basically always summer here, might rain, might not, and that's pretty much the difference. August this year, I dyed my hair (extensions) Ombre. Darker up, and bleached the tips. I googled a bunch of people who dyed their hair like Miley Cyrus, Lauren Conrad, and loads of bloggers and their tutorials helped like my girl ChloeHollywood. Basically buy hair bleach, and keep doing the tips, lower and lower.
So summer time, I went on some psycho diet for bout 3 weeks, lost bout 10lbs / 4.5kg, looked amazing, tummy wasn't tone though so couldn't throw away my coverup. But I still looked great... provided i didnt strip lol. The diet was crazy restricting calories, felt weak, wasn't worth it later cuz I got a bit sick, and i love food soo much so i went from eating like Nichole Richie to my normal pigout!! This day alone at the beach I probably had enough food for two people. Soo..... now in present day I've gained the weight back lol (i literally just ate a lot of cake from Cold Stone).
Was invited to a friends beach house to chil and relax. Was pretty mellow, went with my namesake Michelle, and then her brother Michael stopped by. lol so the three M's: Michelle, Michelle & Michael. Had a lotta fun, stuffed my face, took a ton of pictures, then came home chilled, then slept like a baby.
here's Meems below. It's funny when we don't use our nicknames it sounds like, Michelle! No.... Michelle listen. Omg Michelle your wrong. lol but with Nicknames it sounds easier.
