Movie reviews (Kind of...)

I was thinking since I haven't blogged lately I would fill you in on all the things I have been doing lately. With it being holidays and all, it is fair to say I have done a whole lot of nothing. Anyway, I went to a BBQ at my mates house for her birtday (suuuuuuch good food! Like, ridiculously so. We even got to decorate our own cupcakes! Hahah) and I have been gong to the beach and hanging out with friends, you know, all the usual stuff, but I have also been watching a lot of TV/movies on my laptop. To save you some time, I am going rate what I have been watching:

Movie no. 1: Camp Rock 2 (don't even ask). It was everything I thought it would be - extremely cheesy, yet still a good time filler and oddly entertaining (what a life, I know!). I wouldn't get it if you are over the age of 15, like myself. As I said, what a life!
Movie no. 2: Julie and Julia. A really good movie but was dragged out a bit and (SPOILER ALERT) the ending really f*#%ked me off. Julia is angry at Julie for doing the blog. WHAT?!
Movie no. 3: St. Trinians 2. Amazing! Just a good trashy, light-hearted easy-to-watch movie.

And I have also watched all of season 1 of Jersey Shore. I watched the latter half/middle of season 2 (I don't have sky but I watched it at my lovely friends houses) but I decided to watch it from the beginning, and I can't even begin to describe how enjoyably, amazingly addictive it was. That is all. Ha ha, bring on Season 2. I guess I will start that once I am done with Vampire Diaries and 90210.

And lastly, I will leave you with this preview. Why? The first few lines get stuck in my head, really badly, the model who practically kisses Kanye is a New Zealand model, Bella Barber, and it just looks like a really good video clip! I wonder what Lady GaGa's monster video will be like... Or will she do one since she has already released Dance in the Dark (my favourite song at her concert, alongside Speechless which she played on the piano. She is utterly amazing and talented).

"Woooah, it was just another lonely night. Are you willing, to sacrifice your life?"

Enjoy your week everyone! xx

P.S. aren't I a terrible fashion blogger?! However, I have heaps of new dresses from friends which I will put on soon.

Most of the bogs I read are people from the UK, and they are talking about the temperature being -10 degrees and the likes, and showing amazing photos of knee-deep snow. I have always wanted to have a white Christmas, but I currently have burnt shoulders. I don't really know whether to be jelous of their snow, or boastful that summer is just beginning here? I have settled on boastful.
Anyway, I am feeling festive!

My Christmas wishlist is as follows:
• Belly button ring (not a bar - an actual sleeper)
• Cd's
- Taylor Swifts new album (I am a bit of a sucker for some Taylor. Haha)
- Lungs (Florence and the Machine's album). I have all of their songs already but since I went to her concert and loved it, I feel I should support them.
• Books
• Power Jewellery (like cage rings, a cross necklace, bulky braclet's etc. And I need new earings)
• Guns & Roses t-shirt
• Boyfriend jeans (comfy AND stylish)
• Gossip Girl Season 3 (bastards decided to show it on TV at 3.00 pm on Sunday. What a ridiculous time! Ha ha)
• The Teen Vogue Handbook: An Insiders Guide to a Career in Fashion
• Liquid eyeliner and red lip gloss. As mentioned here I lost mine :(
• Hair accessories, perhaps a bone for my hair? Think BamBam from the Flintstones.
Photo from fashiontoast
• Sims 3!!! Except it may not work on my computer :( Plus I have next to no free space. Which leads me to my next thing....
• A hardrive for extra storage
• Polaroid camera
• Overlocker
• Permanent hair extensions
• Plus various items of clothing:
All things are from the Urban Outfitters website

I also want this dress but I can't get a picture of it unfortunately.

RED Lips Sink Ships

Red is such an amazing colour, to wear and just as a colour in general - in fact it is probably my favourite colour. But something about it just screams 'Look at me!'. Haha, and it is so versatile, as in it can be romantic and glamorous or blood red 'I'm a vampire'-type thing, or just playful! I don't think I own enough/much red.
Red was on my mind so to the blog it goes!

My problem is, though, that I don't really suit red lips, which annoys me as it is such a pretty lipstick/lip gloss colour. Oh well, hopefully it will look better when I go back to my natural colour (6th of December. Wooooh!).

Update: My problem is that I have lost my red lipgloss! It was blood red and smelt delicious. Bummer.

By the way, don't correct me - I know the actual saying is 'Loose Lips Sink Ships'.

Alex Gaudino - I'm In Love (I Wanna Do It)

I am sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately, I have no excuse, just that I am a very lazy person. I really ought to be 50kg's heavier then I am.

This video was shown to me by the greatest, most amazing, beautiful person whom is my bestfriend, Maddie (hope you enjoyed the shoutout. Haha) but it really is an amazing video and I thought it deserved a post! That guy who washes the car - phwoar - sooo goodlooking! Or perhaps sexy is the right word. Love the Guns n Roses shirt!

Bored, Tired and Found Future Husband

I would like to start by saying my heart does sincerely go out to all of those people who have been effected by the Pike Mine disaster. It is honestly a tragedy. I still have hope some people will be found alive, though they are now saying no one has survived and it is now a 'Search and Recovery' operation, as apposed to a 'Search and Rescue' operation. It frustrates me though that now they are saying that no one has survived, when they are yet to recover any bodies. Keep hope people. I am grateful though that no rescuers were sent into the mine to try to find the trapped miners, because with the second explosion today, the death toll would be a lot larger.

Now to indulge you with the juicy details of my day (aka, a very uneventful day). I woke up reasonably early and I woke up earlier then I would on a school day the day before, plus late nights. So I am extremely tired. I celebrated the end of exams the other day with a BBQ/swim at my friends Marcelle's house which was very enjoyable. This all has resulted in me writing a very half-ass blog-post while really just wanting to sleep and never wake up - until the next really sunny day that is. Weather has been poor lately.

Me with my back to the camera. I chose not to put a 'slicked back hair' photo of me facing the camera on. Not a great look. Ha ha

Now what you have all been waiting for... my future husband! He is 17, sings (like a God), also plays the piano, he has impeccable style, is from Gothenburg (reminds me of Gothem in Batman), which is the 2nd biggest city in Sweden after Stockholm, and he is bloody good looking. And all of this from a quick lookbook stalk!

I know I have been a terrible fashion blogger lately, but I have a new pair of glasses and a blouse I got off Trade Me so pictures of those to come, plus I am doing some DIY right now so pictures of that to come also!

Aren't playsuits lovely? This trade me member, nzyapee, sells heaps. All a bit expensive for me right now seeing as I am saving for summer but I desperately want someone to get married so I can wear that adorable mint green one. Or just any half-decent excuse for me to get the sailor one!

the girl with kaleidoscopes for eyes

"Dressing is the fourth bodily function. After breathing, eating and sleeping - and excluding a couple of delicious optional extras. One of the fundamental pleasures of the human body is to clothe it, thus making fashion its closest relative - pretty important.... It lives and exists not only as one of the most ravishing and compelling of entertainments but as the surest indicator of time. Ever since Eve wore a fig leaf, fashion has been associated with two things: defining sexuality and committing outrageous behaviour.
... there are the handful of geniuses who put beauty and art before everything. That will be me one day."

This is a quote from my friend Liselle's tumblr, the girl with kaleidoscopes for eyes. I would definitely check it out. I just thought this quote was so cool and special and seeing as my blog is a fashion blog (kind of) it deserved some reblogging. There is more to the quote but I shortened it as I always seem to do massive posts.

hair woes continued...

I know, I know. Always the hair. But I was reading about this little book on Kavita's blog, i heart vintage x, and I was just thinking 'What a cute, useful little book'. I just like all the handy hints for growing hair, which I want to do.

I adore this quote. Just love it.
