Hollow Men

This has got to be my new favourite song. Yeah I'm into all of the metal music etc. but you can't go wrong with a good, chilled acoustic song. My good friend Louis recorded this with his friend Olivia, who's an incredible singer, and I urge you to give it a listen, the sound is real soft and perfect for a sleepy playlist (or is it just me that has one of those?!). Louis is also the lead guitarist for the band Goodnight Vienna, an extremely talented and genuine guy so he deserves to do well out of all this, so please, take two minutes and thirty seven seconds out of your day to listen to this, I can assure you it'll be worth it!

Sunday Summary Week 32: Christmas Edition

1/ Drop Dead phone case (which I actually got early)
2/ Polaroids (mostly of Freddie)
3/ Got a Polaroid camera and 5 packs of film!
4/ Gorgeous Thomas Sabo acorn necklace from my mum, got a matching charm for my bracelet too
5/ Me being a goon
6&7/ Drop Dead skull scarf
8/ Love belt from Urban Outfitters
9/ Wore my galaxy leggings, festive!
10/ More little goodies I got
11/ Painted my nails with my new nail varnish!

Today hasn't been too bad.  Presentwise it's been awesome, but familywise not so much.  My mum and stepdad aren't good and the day was reflected by this.  Mum went to bed at like 5 and everyone was apart on the day where you're supposed to be a strong family unit, playing games and watching movies etc.  Anyway I'll stop being a downer! We dressed my baby bro in a little santa outfit and went to the ice rink and Christmas dinner was incredible. I've now got Christmas at my dads house to look forward to on the 29th and I had Christmas with my grandparents last week, and actually have some pictures of that to put up, so expect many pictures very soon!

At the moment I'm watching Danisnotonfire and Amazing Phil on the Radio 1 website and they are so funny! I love their videos so a 2 hour show featuring them is a dream come true, they also interview Oli Sykes, ahhh! If you're online now I strongly recommend clicking here and watching/listening to them!

Here's to the past

As promised, here are some of the photos from the photoshoot I did with my friend Polly.  A lot of the pictures didn't turn out too great as it was a pretty rushed shoot, so she does look a little like a kid dressed up for halloween as the lighting wasn't that great but I created some good images in the end that I'm happy with! What do you guys think?(:

It's pretty late but I wanted to show you some pictures of my new phone! I got it for my birthday in October and I loooove it.  It's a 64GB iPhone 4S so it has Siri and everything that's fun to play with, but the battery life is pretty appauling, doesn't even last a day which is annoying, but it's worth it for how fast it is!  I could never go back to anything other than an iPhone!

Sunday Summary Week 31

1/ Got a candy cane sent to me at college!
2/ Random photo sesh with my friend Molly
3/ Dominoes pizza!
4/ Made a Christmas tree as we can't have one this year due to Freddie being too young!
5/ Asked Siri what the meaning of life was, hahhaa
6/ Did a photoshoot with my friend Polly, pictures will be revealed soon!

I'm sooooo glad that the holidays are finally here!  College has been putting so much pressure on me lately so this break is much needed, although I do still have a ton of work I need to do.  However, this break does mean that I'll be able to post more frequently *yay* so look forward to that! I'm going to Manchester for an early Christmas with my grandparents tomorrow until Thursday so wish me luck as the weather there is apparently absolutely freezing!

Watch the world

from amy x
If you saw my post from a few days ago I received a gift from Charlotte, and this is the little present I gave her. It's one of the necklaces that I made from my shop which was a one off so unfortunately it is now out of stock, but there are a ton more items you'll definitely love if you like the pocket watch. The pictures are from her blog here and she posted a lookbook look featuring it too, which you can see here.  Isn't her style just awesome?!

If we climb this high, I swear we'll never die

It's taken me a while to get round to it but the other week I won a giveaway held on Ellie's blog, Freak on a Leash.  I was sooo happy when I found out as the prizes are awesome so just had to share with you!  If you can't tell fro the picture, I got a flower garland, two packs of incense, two nail varnishes, a topshop(!) shredded vest and some body wash and scrub, along with a lovely little letter from Ellie.  This is really a post to say thank you very much, and I recommend you all to check out her blog!

3/ Really loving the clothes from Chicwish, they do some great stuff!

This week has actually been really good, as far as college weeks.  I'm still major behind on christmas shopping though, as well as a ton of work!  My mums going away for work or something this week so I have to stay at dads, so I won't get to see Freddie for ages which is pretty depressing! I had a party Saturday night and today I went Christmas shopping in Kingston.  It's such a good place to go but it was completely packed, I prefer shopping online!  Now I'm knackered, so night!

We're so sick & oh so tired

Hey guys, just a quick post before I go to bed.  I don't really have that much to say other than my mum and stepdad have been going through a rough time lately and he left for a few days last week so that's been on my mind a lot lately.  I'm pretty shook up about the whole thing but I'm just hoping everything will work out and things will be back to normal, so that's why I've been kinda absent.  The picture's pretty random I know, but i thought it was cool looking so popped it in as I hate posts that are solely writing.  Lastly it's a long shot, but it would really mean a lot to me if you could vote for me in a competition here.  You just have to connect it to facebook (don't worry, it doesn't post anything on your wall etc) and then find me on the 'most popular' tab then click the vote button. It sounds lengthly but it really does take like 2 seconds!  Anyway, I'll be back soon with a sunday summary if not before, so bye <3

Let's rule the world

College is actually taking over my life! Sorry guys haha.  I've not posted an outfit in such a long time due to crappy light but I'll try to catch up soon.  These pictures are of a little package I received from the lovely Charlotte Clothier as a gift.  All the goodies are so lovely and she's more than happy to do exchanges with other people, so go and check out her blog! She does some great posts and her style is just awesome, can't wait to send out my gift to her!
