Trick or Treat?!


I'm a bit boring and don't do anything for Halloween anymore. Of course when I was younger I loved trick or treating - now it's time for my younger brothers to do the dressing up. They looked really good!

Hakuna Matata

I've never been completely sure if I've ever seen The Lion King when I was a younger. It was either, I've never seen it or I've only seen small parts of it before. After just watching the whole film about 10 minutes ago, I can say it was the latter. But how have I never seen Mufasa's death before - I've heard that it was really sad but I didn't think it would be that sad, my eyes were tear filled!

This clip is probably one of my favourites out of the whole film. Firstly, how cute is the young Simba and secondly, this is such a great philosophy. Shame I'll never be able to stick to it fully! I'm now going to try and go on a spree of watching all the Disney Classics that I've never seen before between now and Christmas. Hopefully! I've seen quite a lot of them - mainly the Princess ones but a few of the others as well! I'm ashamed to say that I've never seen Bambi or The Jungle Book all the way through! I might have seen The Jungle Book all the wa through when I was younger but I can't remember all of it now so them two are definitely near the top of my list.

- As it is half term and even though I have piles of work to do (I'm off to do two pieces for Classics after this) I'm going to try and get a couple more posts done this week. It'll be my only chance to post more than twice a week as when I go back to sixth form I'll be back down to work. Anyway, how are you all??

'You're An Angel' Award

This lovely award is from Hazel, Pablo's Angel. She even gave me a little nickname and wrote a little comment about each person she gave an award too. This is so sweet, so thank you again. So, sharing it all with you:

"Little Miss Sunshine"
You are such a sweet and lovely girl. I adore reading your blog and finding out what you've been up to throughout the week. Everything feels very girly and adorable on your blog which makes me love it even more!

On a negative note: I'm so annoyed right now, apart from this award :), I've just got rid of a stinkin' cold I've had for about two week and guess what I'm greeted with this morning, which has got worse during the day: a huge coldsore on my chin!! yes, my chin! I'm so not happy - I normally get them on the edge of my mouth/lip (you know where I mean, right?) but oh no, it has to be smack down in the middle of my chin! And, did I mention it's huge?

Another Week,

Another week has gone by; cold, coat-wearing weather, two job applications, a horrible cold affecting my nose, lots of sniffing during silent lessons, lots of psychology practise exam questions, three essays for homework = and I'm pretty much shattered! After next week it's half term for one week, which means SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP.

I have some exciting news though! Remember, this destination love where I told you all about the places I want to go in Greece someday well I could be possibly seeing many of these places next July! For AS Classics students, we get to go to Greece next year for a week. I handed in the deposit yesterday - and it was lucky because there were only five out of the thirty five places left. I'm really excited! When we find out the itinerary, I'll let you guys all know :)

I'm sorry it's been a week since I last posted but I have a feeling that's the way things will probably be panning out for the foreseeable future as I am always so god damn busy on a night time with so much work to do! I know I complain about this regularly but honestly I do enjoy sixth form! But don't unfollow me if you think I have stopped blogging, I haven't. Just remember - 'all good things come to those who wait' :D

NB: (not really sure what that actually stands for but never mind)
-GOSSIP GIRL starts next week over here. Excited much! Er, yes of course :)
- Oh and I'm obsessed with Bruno Mars - It Will Rain. I know Breaking Dawn isn't out for another five weeks yet but I can't wait.
- I know what you's are all thinking, but I do have a life - honest!

It Will Rain

The posts about Breaking Dawn are about to start. Yes, I am a fan - don't judge or if you want to, you know where you can go!  I am also a huge fan of Harry Potter and just for the record, there is no reason why someone can't love both. For starters, they are completely and utterly different from one another. Anyway, since that is cleared up :) remember when I told you about Bruno Mars doing the soundrack for the film, It Will Rain - well here it is!!

What do you think? I really like it, Bruno Mars has such a great voice. And, even more exciting - me and my friend have booked tickets for the opening night! I know, over a month in advance but it is possibly my favourite book out of all of them (that's quite hard to say because the 1st and 3rd book come in so close behind!) and the screens for all night are so full already. Anyone else looking forward to the release?

October, October

The weather is really warm again today! But the funny thing is forecasters have been predicting snow for the end of October in certain parts of the UK. Hmm... WHAT IS GOING ON? with the weather these days :/  They also say it's going to be worse than last year - and I can say that won't be so good especially having to get the buses - they will be like half an hour up to an hour late, great! And, it takes about an hour to get to my sixth form to start with. I believe THE BIG FREEZE again!

A positive I was looking forward to October was hopefully being able to have access to Pottermore. I missed the early registration and have been waiting for this month to come round so the other day I went on the website and find out that it won't be happening until the end of October beginning of November. Bummer! I'm dying to know what it's all about, if anyone has had early access - please comment below and tell me some of the secrets :)

I love when Autumn comes around - mainly due to the colours of the leaves. When you see the leaves changing to reds and oranges, blowing off and the crunching beneath your feet. I love it! I've been listening loads to Anastacia's 2004 album and Dido's - Life for Rent album. I'm such big fans and recently decided to rip my CD's and put them on my iPod. They are on constant replay. I can't wait for these to come back in the limelight. Anastacia has another album going to be released in 2012 (I think) but I'm not sure about Dido. Another point on music - I'm really looking forward to Coldplay, Snow Patrol and Florence and The Machine's new albums to be released! Anyone else a fan of these?
