my lazy day get up

So I've been watching The Lion King triology on VHS and it struck me that there are many things that I like and dislike about videos.
Here's my latest Lookbook post.

1. You don't have to keep pressing play, or choosing language it's just go go go
2. But you do have to rewind when you get to the end
3. All the Disney classics on video take me right back to my childhood
4. They have a nostalgic vintage quality
5. Yet, they are a far cry from HD and 3D
But, I still love them.
So these are the beautiful classics I have watched so far:
- Alice in Wonderland
- Cinderella
- Sleeping Beauty
- The Little Mermaid
- Robin Hood
- The Aristocats
- Beauty and the Beast
- Tarzan
- 101 Dalmations
- The Lion King
- The Lion King 2
- The Lion King 3
- Pocahontis
I know it looks and sounds like a lot, but I promise I have been doing other things at the same time. Hence, I shall hopefully be uploading some of my artwork over the holiday soon :)

They told me to be smart and casual

I've spending my days doing some casual art coursework, reading and watching old Disney videos. At this very moment in time I have Cinderella on in the background. I am such a child at heart. Yet after all "A dream is a wish your heart makes". 
New lookbook post below :)

Today's Lookbook post :)

I can hear the wind in the trees

Hello all, 
Just a little outfit post for you. My brother got his GCSE results today and I am pleased to report that he did very well. 
It's really naughty, but I rarely eat breakfast during the holidays, or rather I don't really eat during the holidays- I just drink tons of tea. I'm not sure why! Yet, today I enjoyed a bowl of granola and a cuppa whilst listening to lovely BBC Radio 1. 
I hope you all have a lovely day!

Hi everyone!


The White Rabbit

Last night I really couldn't sleep. It got to about three o'clock and I was still awake, just finished Beowulf which is one of my English Literature A2 set texts and starting reading a brand new novel Jeffrey Eugenides' 'The Virgin Suicides'. I had also changed some of the stuff on here, done tons of link surfing on pinterest, emailed my pen pal and connected with my friends on twitter. So really I achieved quite a lot. 
I'm actually really excited, because I've got loads of blog posts lined up, some just in my head, some a little bit more tactile, so I really won't be neglecting! Sad and happy news, however, next week I go on tour!! Yes, I'm so exciting, I'm actually bursting. Nevertheless, this does mean that I probably won't be able to post :(
This morning after admittedly only a couple of hours sleep I was woken up by our black labrador bouncing pretty much on my head. Gaah I was not impressed. Yet, after my morning cuppa, checking my emails I decided to do a spot of editing and here I am. I think I posted this look a little while ago on this here blog, but I did a little editing, added a vintage effect and much prefer it. I hope you like it.

OOTD sounds funny

I realised that it has been a while since I posted an outfit post, so here is what I'm wearing today, you can't see my feet, because I'm not wearing any shoes, hehe. If you're on LookBook go ahead and give a hype. Many Thanks xo

praise thee lord

Hi there!!
I love coffee, I love going to cute little cafes and drinking coffee, having a catch up and eating cute little cakes. So ever since I signed up to be a part of Costa Coffee Club it has been my new obsession. And guess what!!
I have enough points to purchase one free latte!! Omg, lattes are my favour hot drink ever! It probably partly stems from when I was younger my Nana used to make me super milky coffee which I would drink through a straw (I no longer use a straw) so I guess it brings back memories!! My favourite cold drink has to be Costa's Pink Grapefruit Lemonade, kinda like an ice tea. Although I am a sucker for any frappuccino (not sure on the spelling) from Starbucks, or cooler from Costa. What are your favourite types of drinks?

A Good Start?


Here's a little story I wrote. I think originally I intended it to be the opening of a novel, but anyway hope you enjoy:

Girls are incredibly sensitive, perhaps a little na├»ve in some cases and riddled with so many individual insecurities that they deserve an independent survey of their own. Every girl puts on a front, a wall if you like, in which they pretend is made of concrete and is so impenetrable that it’s not even worth trying to think about breaking it down. But you can nearly always break it down. Like breaking an egg shell inside is something vulnerable and completely dependent on the shield to survive. This is what a girl is like.
She craves attention... especially from you. Every time she sees you she holds her breath, she savours the conversations and when you touch her she shakes. She goes to sleep every night with a greedy smile plastered across her place, desperate that you’ll star in her dream. As dreams are wonderful things, places where even if it is not real or even pragmatic she can be close to you, to have you all to herself.
And what tactics does she have? She likes the chase, she often uses the ‘treat them mean to keep them keen’ phrase in which teasing is a frequent player. But she gets nervous, and plays out situations in her head how she’d ideally love them to go, but they never do. You never quite say the thing that she wants you to say. She wants you to be the guy that she always wanted you to be, the one in which she took you and moulded you into the all rounder, the ultimate guy. She wants a friendship as well as an relationship, she wants to do normal things and not feel the pressure. But she needs space to spend time with others. Although she loves you, like most things if you have too much at once it’s overwhelming, you just need to stand back and observe- what you have is great, don’t ruin it.
She wants to be loved, accepted for who she really is. She wants to just stand in your arms and not be able to say anything, but you still understand each other. She wants a love life that is constantly spontaneous and so hot that if she is not carefully she’s gonna burn herself. She wants to be so overcome with lust that she loses control of her inhibitions and is racked with such want of you that she just wants to feel your kiss on her neck, you arms draped around her shoulders, her body pressing against yours, so close that you almost become one.
That is what I believe a girl wants.

Going Greek

As you probably already know I am planning to do my Art Personal Study based on the Ancient Greeks, so I set up a little photoshoot with my friends. I really enjoyed doing all the styling (hair, make up and clothes) as well as taking the photographs and positions. I have edited these photographs mind, my style of photography is simply point and shoot, so I would be mega impressed with myself if I could produce these without help!
Please do not use these photographs, they are my own.

'n' wot?!

These are my favourite picks from Pinterest this week. I really have become quite obsessed with it. I love how you can amalgamate all sorts of different things on to one virtual pin board- quite inspiring really.
I've been avidly watching the Olympics, and have to say my favourite event so far was the synchronised swimming. I thought both Russia and China's group pieces were spectacular and resulted in a first and second place respectively.
