i take pictures when boredom takes over

Just a quick post tonight because I have a coursework overload at the moment and have quite a bit of reading to do tonight before I head to bed. I've had every intention of studying since I got home from uni today but all I've really done is find ways to distract myself from doing so. For example, I did a spot of online shopping, entered a few bidding wars on ebay for things I don't even need and also purchased various Disney DVDs for next to nothing on Amazon. Yes, I know I've been productive tonight, just not in the correct way. I have to do a presentation tomorrow in my 9 o'clock seminar with a group of 5 other people. I hate presentations SO MUCH. I'd much rather write vast amounts in an essay than have to get up infront of people I hardly know and present findings. Shoot me now!

In other news, I'm starting to get bored of my light blonde/ginger hair. I just feel like I should go back to my natural colour. I don't think I'd go back to black after the hassle it took to strip that colour out of my hair, but I'm definitely considering being a brunette again. 

I'm also about to throw my stupid blackberry out of my window if the internet doesn't start working soon. I'm having withdrawl symptoms from twitter because I can't get on to it! I cannot wait until my phone can be upgraded. Hello 3rd of December and hello iPhone!

Goodnight guys ! Xo.

Surprise style inspiration

I have to say that I love Demi Lovato's style. I'm not a fan of her music but I find her very interesting as a person because of the trouble she's gone through. I've always had an interest in Demi's style simply because she doesn't dress like a typical Disney star but over the past couple of months, I've sort of fallen in love with her outfit choices. I also like the fact that she seems to be a hat fiend as I am also a fellow fiend of the hats.

I'm also loving Demi's hair at the moment. My hair used to be that long until I decided to go blonde and had to get my dry ends cut off. I miss my long hair and I'm forever wishing that it would grow back.



The View have just announced December tour dates that go on sale next Friday. Words cannot describe how happy this has made me. For those few people who read this, you may (or may not) know that I am absolutely in love with this band and so far I've seen them live 11 times. The View gigs are always memorable and they are by far the best band to see live. Honestly, if you haven't seen them live I strongly suggest you go for it. I can't even begin to explain my love for The View, I just think they are incredibly talented and one day I would love to marry a Kyle Falconer look-a-like or sound-a-like. I think that would be lovely.

Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for you

I'm feeling seriously under the weather today. My throat has pretty much closed up leaving me struggling to speak and I'm choked with the cold. I didn't go to uni today, instead I've been lying around on the couch all day, wrapped in my duvet and watching Disney movies. There is honestly nothing like watching Disney movies when you're unwell.

I have to go to uni tomorrow though, I hate missing anything even if it is just one lecture and I also have to go because I need to fill out my application for studying abroad. It took a lot of decision making but I finally chose to study in Marseille which is in France if you didn't know..

I also have an interview ar 1 o'clock tomorrow at a travel agents called Canadian Affair so fingers crossed I'm successful. I'm also crossing my fingers that I'm able to speak tomorrow or it will be a complete fail.

Finally I have to attend my college graduation tomorrow night. I even have to wear a lovely graduation robe, how fun! The ceremony is in Stirling Castle which is pretty nice I guess, most of the ceremonies were in Falkirk Town Hall so I guess we were pretty lucky! I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone from my college class again actually, it will be really nice to catch up with them all.

Even though I have so much on tomorrow, I honestly cannot be bothered. I'd much rather curl up in my bed for the day with my hot water bottle and my mum's home made soup. That would be lovely.

Enjoying life with lighter hair.

I am craving heartbreak while you're making your demands

Well, well, well. Hasn't it been a while since I visited my blog. If I'm being truly honest, I forgot all about it. So much has happened over the months since I last posted and I'm not sure if I can really summarise it into one post. However I will try as best as I can by going through the months. I must warn you that my memory may be a little hazy;

  • I turned 19 which depressed me slightly
  • I passed my driving test
  • I saw The Dykeenies in Dundee
  • I got insanely drunk one Sunday night and cannot remember what happened
  • I started a new diet and decided to kick start my healthy regime
  • I got a new job working seasonally for the Falkirk Wheel and hated it
  • I attended many Dusk Mondays
  • I got offers in from possible universities
  • I saw The View for the eleventh time at Barrowlands and a guy almost knocked me out with his elbow
  • I went to see The X Factor Live because I'm in love with Aiden Grimshaw
  • I spent the Easter break completely drunk
  • I lost 1 1/2 stone from my healthy diet!!
  • I started stressing out about finishing college
  • I kept quiet and focused on course work
  • I got an A in my Graded Unit at college
  • I finished college for good and received my HND Tourism award
  • I went to Knaresborough to see my little cousin in Billy Elliot
  • I went to Turkey for the week with my family and didn't want to come home
  • Got rid of my black hair. It's now gingery/blonde.
  • I finished working at the Falkirk Wheel
  • I didn't go to T In The Park and became depressed that whole weekend
  • I went to my friend from my old work's wedding and was reunited with all my old friends
  • I went to Ireland to visit family and had the best week
  • Came home from Ireland
  • Accepted my offer to Glasgow Caledonian to study International Tourism & Travel Enterprise
  • Enjoyed the rest of my summer holidays by getting drunk every night
  • Started university
  • Cut my fringe back in
  • Debbie came home from Spain, we went out for lunch and had a night out in Dusk
  • Decided that I'm going to study abroad in January for 4 months
  • Had a night out in Glasgow with Robyn and had one of the best nights in ages
  • Went out for Erin's birthday on Friday and drank too many Jager Bombs
So that was the past 8 months summed up in one post. So many things happened but I just pin pointed the more memorable things.

Now that I have my life into perspective, I'm going to start blogging more because I have a lot of feelings and thoughts that I need to get off my chest right now. Tonight, however I will leave it at that as I'm currently watching Nowhere Boy and drinking cups of tea. It really is a great, great film.

Sunday, 9 January 2011

So i ran out of time the other day while filling you in on what i got up to over the Christmas period. The answer - between Christmas and New Years Eve i did absolutely nothing! Well that's a slight lie because i went shopping in the sales. I got new black and white brogues, a new pair of loafers, a 60's style shirt, a bag, a floral dress and three t shirts. Quite successful if i say so myself.

New Year's Eve was rather blurry for me. Drinking two bottles of rosé wine before even going to the pub was a bad, bad idea. I started the night at Paul's house where we all decided to meet and drink before heading out. Two bottles of wine and a few cigarettes later (i only smoke when extremely drunk) Lisa and i headed to my friend Sarah's house as she was going to join us at the local. She only lives about 5 minutes from Paul but because of the black ice and snow everywhere it took us around 15 minutes to drunkenly stumble towards her house. When we got there, we saw that everyone who was at Paul's house had ended up in Sarah's. Sarah's family are hilarious and extremely kind. Her mum, Izzy is always getting me drunk whenever i visit! So Izzy began pouring me more glasses of wine and so here is where my memory became blurred. Apparently we stayed at Sarah's in the company of her family from 10.30 until 11.45 where we then made our way to the pub to bring in the New Year. I have no recollection of the length of time we spent in Sarah's or even making our way to the pub, i do however remember saying 'Happy New Year' to everyone i knew in the pub and i also remember planting a big one on walker who then tried to hug me to death. My best friend Erin phoned at around 12.30 and said she was walking down from her aunty's party to meet us for a while. I took this as a hint to walk up and meet her and so, on my own, i left the pub and wandered around Denny (which is extremely creepy at night) to try and meet her. While waiting on her, i made friends with a pleasant drunken man in his 40's who wished me 'Happy New Year', hugged me, gave me the party hat he was wearing and told me i was going to have a great year, he then stumbled away into the night. I grew fond of him after that! So anyway, i met up with erin, we stumbled back to the pub, singing drunken tunes as we went - our favourite drunken song is A Little Respect by Erasure followed by Sheila by Jamie T. We went to the pub and started taking shots which was not my best idea. This is where my memory fades again..
The next thing i remember is being back at Sarah's house with Sarah, Walker, Paul, Lisa and Chris. Walker and i were having an interesting chat about how he pulls girls and about this girl he really liked. I'm not sure what i said to him, but i bet it was good advice ;). Next thing i know, i'm taking shots of Absolute Pear Vodka with Walker. After two i couldn't take anymore and Walker being the loving person he is shouted 'COME ON, MAN UP AND DRINK UP YOU PUSSY!' .. so i did.
I then woke up the next day on Sarah's couch with a blanket wrapped around me while Chris and Walker lay on the other chairs. Chris left early in the morning, but i stayed until around 5pm as did Walker just chatting away to Izzy and Sarah.
All in all, it was a messy, messy night but i loved every second (of what i can remember!).

                                        Me looking sober before my night of drunken chat began.

The 2nd of January was a great day for me. Aiden Grimshaw was appearing in City nightclub in Falkirk! Now i know it doesn't seem like my kind of thing, but i absolutely LOVE X Factor and Aiden Grimshaw was my favourite this year, his voice is unique, he's gorgeous and he has a quiff! So you can imagine my excitement when i found out he'd be at City. So Lisa and i headed there, we bought our £13 VIP bands and got ourselves a few drinks. At around 11 o'clock, we went to the toilet to freshen up because he was going to be performing soon, when we came back from the toilets we noticed that he was actually sitting in VIP! So yes, Lisa and i got to meet the gorgeous Aiden Grimshaw and he was such a nice guy. I kind of felt for him a little though because he had all these people in his face but you know, i still made my way over! He signed one of the flyers that i was given and we got a picture together. HOWEVER! i hate the picture, because i look so awkward and my face looks disgusting and my feet are at an awkard angle. There is a reason for me looking so bad in the picture. The camera man took it while i was still preparing for the picture, he then took another picture which probably would have been a much better result than the first but he didn't bother to post the second one. So yeah, i was stuck with this horrible picture which i have tried to brighten, darken, crop and fix in every way (see two of the better results below) but i still look terrible. But it was an awesome night and i'm just happy i got to meet him!

                                                          Before heading out to City. 

                                     I don't even have my proper smile on, i just look awkward.

         See, i told you my feet are at awkward angles!
            However, Aiden is beautiful so you should all just stare at his face.

My future boyfriend.

Then from the 3rd of January to present day which is the 9th of January, i have suffered with the flu. I have never been so ill in all my life and i've been curled up in bed all week, feeling sorry for myself and watching copious amounts of Sex and the City. Hopefully it will leave soon as i have a lot of college work to hand in on Wednesday and Friday and so i will need to be fit and have energy to get them finished!

Goodnight X

it's 2011!

I honestly can't believe how fast 2010 flew by. So many amazing things happened last year and i had an absolute blast. Hopefully this year will be even more amazing! I received an offer from one of the universities that i applied for - Glasgow Caledonian - which i'm excited about, i just need to wait on four more offers before i decide. I honestly don't know which uni i prefer, although i know Glasgow like the back of my hand so moving there wouldn't be too hard to cope with.

The festive season of 2010 was great. I got quite a bundle of presents which i wasn't expecting including a faux fur coat, camel coloured coat, loafers, a thomas sabo bracelet and a new camera to name a few. Christmas was spent in my house and my mum cooked dinner. There were ten of us there - me, mum, dad, brother, two aunties, uncle, two cousins and my cousins little girl (second cousin you could say). It was hectic but we're used to it by now! Excuse my face in the below picture, i was trying not to laugh!

Afterwards, Erin phoned me and told me she was having a Christmas afterparty at her house and so i headed down to join the festivities and got slightly intoxicated with my guys. I only have one picture from the after party and it's a picture of Paul and Steven the morning after asleep on the couch, so you can tell what kind of night it was!

Boxing day was spent at our house, again where some of my aunties and uncles from my mums side of the family came over for dinner and drinks. It turned out to be a hilarious night as we all battled it out on my brother's new Kinect. It led to a lot of competitive players, but it was fun!

My next post will be how i spent New Years Eve.
Trust me, you'll want to know as it was a random, messy night!
