They call me Mel-low yellow

Hey All

Hooray, finally have an to myself where I’m not running around trying to sort out loans/bank accounts/ rent money or all of the above. It feels like forever since the last time I could properly be Mel. Still once the flat is sorted I’ll be able to stay like this past 5 pm because there’ll be no family coming home except K, and she thankfully knows. Although I have fallen out of practice with the old make-up, looks a bit squiffy today :S

Still I’m amazed at how relaxed I’m feeling now I’m dressed this way again, considering how crappy/hectic the last few weeks have been. It’s all seemingly washed away now. Hopefully things will stay at this level for the next few months at least, until something else comes along (I know what is coming but I’m sworn to secrecy at the moment 😦 )

Also my birthday is coming up next month (25 on the 30th July) and I’m having a massive fancy dress bash. Not comfortable going as Mel to that yet, think the first test run for that will be Halloween. Anyway, I’ve just ordered my costume for it, wich can be found here if anyone’s interested. Who knows, maybe Mel may stop by for the pre-lash beforehand, depends on which friends are there at the time, and if we’re in the new flat by then.

Anyway, I’m off to do a bit of drawing, which is something else that helps to relax me.

another quicky

Hey all

just another update to let you know how i’m getting on, the last few weeks have been insane, running around to and from town everyday trying to sort out money and stuff for the flat. We now have a bed, drawers, fridge/freezer, and a couch, so thats most of the biggies down already. Just a washing machine to go and we kinda have the bare essentials as far as the expensive stuff goes. Then it’s just plates etc, but I just wanna get in there now, (as may tell i’m not a very patient person lol)

Anyway, hopefully I’ll have some time to myself this week to get into proper Mel mode again. Feels like forever since I last was.

quick update

hey all

Sorry for vanishing again, but I’ve recently received some news, which unfortunately I cannot divulge at this moment in time, that has made my life absolutely hectic at the moment.

On the plus side, my fiancée and I are also getting a flat together now, wich is also adding the madness at the moment, so there will be loads more time for me to get into Mel mode without fear of being walked in on so to speak.

Anyway, this was just a quicky to let you know I’m still surviving (just) and I hope to put up a proper post again soon

Later Taters

Sunday Photos

Hey all,

this is just a quicky to show you the photos I mentioned in my last post. The ones from the Sunday night at my friends house where I was shown how to use make-up etc. Enjoy ^_^

Bank Holiday Hi-jinks

Hello again all.

Got some big news today that happened over the long weekend.

First of all, two more friends have now seen Mel, and not only that, along with my fiancée (K), helped give me some make-up tips with the things I bought last Friday. Unfortunately I’m still waiting on the photos to be emailed to me (I forgot to take my camera, but i’ll stick em up here when I get em). Anyway, we had a few drinks etc, then I decided I’d walk home in Mel mode (it was something stupid like 2 in the morning so I knew there was hardly any chance of being seen.  So K and I started to walk back to mine when the heavens opened and we had no choice but to call a taxi. “Oh crap” I thought, seeing as there was no way I was de-Mel-ing in the rain, but it was way to heavy to walk in. Eventually the taxi came and I just held my head forward so my wig hid my face until we were in the car and the lights were off again.

Anyway after a 10 minute nerve-wracking drive we reached the garage by where I live, and the rain had eased off. The driver then turned around to us and said “Just here ok girls?”

My heart stopped

“Did he just say what I think he said? I thought to myself in disbelief, It was confirmed by a quiet squee from K sat next to me. I handed over the money without opening my mouth and hurriedly left the taxi, hiding my make-up covered face again.

Now this would have been the perfect end to the night If we hadn’t got back to mine to discover that my brother had left his key in the door, effectively locking us out. I sat in my car and desperately started rubbing the make-up off my face, stuffed my wig into my bag and threw my hoodie on over the top of what I was wearing, thankfully I was in my jeans albeit the  very skinny ones) and then rang the doorbell, house phone and his mobile until he finally let us in and I sped upstairs , hoping he didn’t notice said jeans.

All in all a very eventful  Sunday. So now, I’ve had the house to myself again, and decided to try out what I was shown, still not A+ material yet, but getting there I feel.

as always, lemme know your thoughts in the comments



Big bag o’ swag

Good Evening everybody

Hope you Uk lot are looking forward to this extra long weekend, some of us have work tomorrow 😦

Aaaaaanyway, I got paid today, and finally had the courage to actually go shopping, albeit with my fiancée, and I’ve bout an entire new outfit. I’ve only just got home to discover that my brother is out for the night again, yay! So I’m sitting here, as Mel, with most of my new things on, and feeling damn fine about it 🙂

So “what did you buy Mel?” I hear you possibly ask. Take a look!

oh, and yes, that is make-up on the leg of the jeans there. That’s the stuff I’m not wearing at this precise moment, just because I don’t really have time to start trying it out tonight seeing as I have to be off to bed soon, I’m up at 5 (it’s now 8pm).

It was an interesting experience to say the least, as well as nerve-wracking. Every time my fiancée, (we’ll call her K for now) showed me something, or asked me what I was looking for I panicked, thinking that everyone around me would cotton on and ready the torch/pitchfork combo, and that was just the clothes, never mind the make-up wich was at the back of some tiny little shop and she was putting foundation on my arm. I’m surprised it stayed the amount I was sweating with nerves.

One final thing before I go off and enjoy my evening alone is that I’ve started watching “My transsexual Summer” on 4OD seeing as I missed it the first time round. If you’ve never seen it, I’d highly recommend it. Was stunned to find out that one of the girls was from my home sister Isle, Jersey, although she’s moved away now it still gives me hope that there are others somewhere on these little rocks, and I’ll try to seek them out.

Anyways that’s all for today, and here’s a song to play you out for your weekend. It’s called “My Song” and it’s written and performed by a good friend of mine, a perfect little tune to laze in the evening sun, or watch it set.
