duvet day

so today its my colleges training day..which means no college..which means duvet day :D
though i need to stop eating as much as i do :/ so i am cutting down! sad days..

so today i thought i would go through some new music which i like in a top 5 :) this isnt a which is best order, it is just the bands which are good!!!

  1. Passion Pit - they have been around for a few years now, i am so happy they have a new single 'Take A Walk' its very summery and i find myself smiling and doing the chair dance! Check it out!
  2. The Lumineers - a new band on the scene with their debut new single 'Ho Hey' a very indie song with a mumford and sons feel to it! i love it a lot another summery song! 
  3. Jonquil - a very Indie/Alternative song it seems to always put a smile on my face when i listen i enjoy it loads the track is called 'Run' 
  4.  The Enemy - these guys have been making music since 2007 and they are still going strong! There new single 'Like A Dancer' of their new album 'Streets In The Sky' Out Now! i found that all off the songs on there are very good i cant pick a fault with the album 
  5. last but not least Haim - A new girl group (YAY) but they are more indie which is good, their debut single 'forever' has been single of the week by a few of Radio 1's dj's! this song is so dancy and never fails to put a smile on my face 
hope you enjoy these new tunes!

marble nails

so recently me and one of my good friends decided we should try out something new: Marble nails!! possibly the best thing i have done in AGES! even though it did take a fair while!
it took us around 1hour D: but it is so so worth it and plus everyone comments on how awesome they are so if you have some spare time out of doing work/school/family things you should totally try it!
below is what my finished nails look like! 
nail varnish used:
Barry M: Peach Melba&Blue Moon
Rimmel London: in orange
NO7: deep purple&white
OPI: red
(the one bad thing about this is that when you
dip in your fingers you get nail varnish all over your
fingers :/ You will see why in the instructions!)

  1. find an old yoghurt pot, tin, box or a container that you can put water in and a finger! You will also need a cocktail stick. Also make sure your nails have some form of base coat whether that is just your normal base coat or a colour (i recommend white as it goes with anything!) as the nail varnish can stick to something!
  2. fill up your container with cold water, grab as much nail varnish as you can find and get on a table and maybe cover it up with news paper so you dont drop anything on the table!!
  3. once you have done that - place 1 drop of your chosen nail varnish (preferably a dark/bright colour) and watch it expand, it should go into a circle shape. If not clear out the water and try again! if your first colour is successful QUICKLY so it doesnt dry place another colour in and add as many colours as you would like (preferably 3) and have fun watching them expand! this step is all about trial and error - you need to try as many nail varnishes as you can to get the best results! 
  4. grab your cocktail stick and drag in the colours to make a swirly pattern (again QUICKLY!)
  5. then once you think 'thats a cool pattern' place one of your finger nails HORIZONTAL on the nail varnish and then straighten the finger into the water you need lots of patience for this step so dont give up keep trying! 
  6. then collect the remaining nail varnish onto the cocktail stick by swirling it around the stick
  7. let the nail dry (by this point your finger will be covered in nail varnish but it does go away!)
  8. do all this again for each nail. i would suggest cleaning the water after every 2nd nail!!

hope you have all found this useful! and show me your results :)
if you would like another one of these i am going to try Splat Nails!

uni confusion

is it just me or is finding a uni so god damn hard? there is so much choice and i am the most indecisive person EVER!! 
so what brought me on to this... going to a uni day at Leeds Met with 142 uni's.. yeah instead of helping me, it has just made my thought processes harder -.- so THANKS! and to add to this.. i have 24 prospectus's D:
this is going to be a chore to whittle it down to 5!! i feel so bad for the uni's that i have to throw away :( this is just horrible times!

Not only this - but i went to a gap year seminar and that appealed to me also -.- so i am even more lost (even though the chances of me taking one is like.. 3% so meh!)
it was also raining ALL DAY so i was drenched.. all this = Not my day!!

for those who read this thinking 'what does she want to do?' i want to take Fashion Journalism :) or Music Journalism or anything to do with Fashion Communication or Magazine/online Journalism - so blogging will help!
for those who think 'wow this is boring and she is crazy!' i am sorry and i shall do something 'normal' soon

for now i shall leave you with Poliça.. her new/debut album give you the ghost is INSANE! have a listen!

thanks for reading this short blog!

gah year 13 - its not all doom and glooom!

this is so depressing started year 13 already and i am sick of the depressing talk of 'its going to be really hard - so keep on top of it' I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THAT! gah i hate it so much and i cant drop psychology until September talk about torture -.- stressing already and its what.. 2days in D: #longyearahead not only that but my body clock is ruined! i woke up so late i had to get ready in 10mins... it hasn't been my day today! literally had to find something in my wardrobe and sling it on and hope for the best!! hopefully it will be better tomorrow... please?
luckily i shall be 18 soonish and i am going to Paris in a month so its not all doom and gloom!

so fashion wise - i have been wearing this INCREDIBLE cameo jacket my brother gave me from his cadet uniform.. which saved me £30 in arc so as you can tell i am over the moon! i wear it with everything and its very comfy, though some people said i look ridiculous but i don't dress for others. i dress for me.
and as for the people who say i dress horribly its called originality you should get some :) (sorry this is so ranty..!) also been wearing my blouses as per usual so nothing has changed reeally! 

within all this been thinking i may get a small tattoo in my wrist so that's also something for me to think on!
note to self: dont wear red and green ever again! and get some deck shoes&creepers!
if any of you have any advice on creepers that would me much appreciated!

music: think i should do a top 10 as i haven't done one in AGES!

10. Grimes - her new singles Oblivion & Genesis.. i cant make my mind up if i like them or not.. they are really out there but they are so so cool and different... hmmm
09. Jack White - my boyfriend (harry) got me into him he has been trying for ages and i finally caved and omg! so so addicted freedom at 21 is my fave his voice blows me away every time
08. Friends - a new band on the scene and i find their new single 'friend crush' really groovy (cringey word sorry!) but it relaxes me and so different!
07. Jessie Ware - her dubstep music has this new feel to it almost pop but not! very cool and BIG summer tunes '110%' is my fave
06. Spector - New band to the scene and i love them! very dancey feel good songs but yet very indie.. new single 'Celestine' one of my fave songs right now
05. Ben Howard - i couldnt do a top 10 without him on here...
04. AlunaGeorge - new singer to the block and her new single 'You know you like it' been a big thing for many Radio 1 DJ's very catchy and again big for the summer
03. Newton Faulkner - New single 'Clouds' amazing. 
02. Icona Pop - girl duet, electropop, 'Nights Like This' 'Manners' listen. so so catchy. Summer. amazing!!!
01. Niki and The Dove - my favourite band. Words can't describe my utter love for them! *speechless* New album 'Instinct' Out NOW!!! listen to 'the fox' amazing! they are going to be at Leeds - get your ears in the tent to see them!!!!!!

sorry this was so wordy!!
