chateau (+ a brand new smile!)


 Swaychic mint dress (buy here), eBay pearl cat ears, Rubi shoes, Oasap pink bag (buy here)

Notice anything different? I got my braces off, finally! I haven't stopped smiling since and it feels wonderful. I've never felt prettier or more confident in myself and am so pleased that all of those months of wires and metal digging into my gums were worth it. I'm just so flippin' excited!! I thought the day would never come! And it did! I have to wear a retainer all day for two weeks and then only at night after that. It's quite uncomfortable but if it means I'll have a lovely smile for the rest of my life then I don't mind ;)

How have you all been? I've been pretty quiet around here lately... I'm back at school and enjoying it! We've been getting grades back and I'm really proud of how I've done in most of my subjects but others... er, need some improvement.
And, how gorgeous is this dress from Swaychic?! I received it today and think it's absolutely lovely. I can't wait to wear it more during the Spring.
I'm off to revise today's History notes! Talk soon xo

your dress is so pretty, it's the perfect mint green!
I remember when I got my braces off, all I did for the first couple of days was run my tongue over my teeth, it was so felt so weird without all the metal bits poking out! xx

The colour of the dress is just gorgeous and I love the cat ears headband with the little pearls on it.

Congrats on getting the braces off! I remember how good that feels from when I had mine taken off.

Congrats on getting your braces off. I remember when I got mine off almost 8 years ago and it was the best feeling ever! Enjoy your gorgeous new smile!

I like how in certain lights the little beads on your headband look like lights on a hollywood mirror or sign. If you get what I mean. As though it's all lit up.

And congrats on getting your braces off! I had some when I was younger and hated them. Such a relief to be free of them I know!

Oh my goodness Maria! So exciting! (You can eat an apple now without having to cut it up! I think that was the most exciting part about getting my braces off!) As always you look beautiful, I love your outfit! Especially your headband! x
