Did you know that I only got my ears pierced in December last year? I keep forgetting to make a big song and dance about it here on the blog, as I have done so a LOT with my friends in real life, and I think they're tired of the songs & dancings and realistically, it's weird that a 33 year old grown woman suddenly decides to get her ears pierced.
I've actually been thinking about it for about 5 years, maybe longer, but I'm not heavily into accessories or piercings, so have kind of just been talking about it instead. Talking about it enough to make my Husbie point out earring piercing places around our new neighbourhood.
On a whim, he marched me into a cutie place in a shopping block and for 2 months I had these silver but pink stoned earrings, and I'm just starting to play around with little new earrings, to see what my ears can handle.
Yep (as shown above with my nifty turban/headband) sleepers are the best for me... they keep the backs of the ears clear and open... as I found these cutie ones (from that cheapie shoe store Rubi - but it sells accessories too) have plastic backs that don't let my ears breath enough:
I can't believe how outrageously happy I am in these photos that I'm wearing earrings. What a dill! But the plastic ones are ok for just a day, and then I'll swap back to the sleepers.
But it feels like I have a WHOLE new world of accessories has opened up and I'm yet to work out what suits my style. And also what I'm comfortable with. I'm a bit queasy putting them in and out, but I'll get better I'm sure.
Maybe next stop for me is getting a tattoo (let's think about that one for at least 10 years)!??!!
