Happy Wednesday!
Today, I want to tell you about a song I've been loving lately and I really want you to love it to. That song is Classic by MKTO.
I'm pretty sure I discovered this song in a playlist on 8tracks a few weeks ago and just fell in love. It's such an upbeat and happy song, it makes me want to get up and dance like a weirdo.
I think this song is going to be big in the summer, it just has that summer-y feel to it I guess.
I can't get enough of this song and I can't wait to here more of MKTO's music in the future.
Thanks for reading, see you on Sunday.

Randomness #2

Happy Sunday! 
As the observant of you may have noticed, there was no Wednesday music post this week and I apologize for that. I also haven't tweeted for about the last two weeks as well. 
I started writing Wednesday's post, but decided that I didn't really want to rush this one and wanted it to be of a decent quality. I feel like that (quality) has been lacking in the majority of my recent posts. That's probably down to the fact that they are all rather rushed now and something I only sit down to do at the end of the day after a few hours of revision. Exam season is coming so that's all I've really been doing lately. I'm in year 11 so I'm doing my GCSE's and my first exam is in 16 days. To me right now, that seems like the shortest time ever. But I most certainly don't feel prepared, not in the slightest. Yes, I've done revision and past papers and all of that but the thought of everything I've been working on for the last two years getting summed up in a one hour exam kind of terrifies me. In fact, just thinking about it is started to get me worried so I think I best stop. 
The purpose of this post is to basically explain what is and will be going on here for the next two months. After that everything should be back to normal. But until then I can't make any promises. I don't know if there will be two posts up every week, some weeks it might just be one or maybe even none. But I'll try and make the time to write. That was part of the point of making this blog anyway, so I would take breaks from revision in times like these and do something else. However that doesn't really seem to be working right now. It just seems that these exams will dictate my future, although I'm almost certain that I won't be thinking the same thing about GCSE's when I'm doing my A Levels next year. 
Thanks for reading and I hope that you will all stick around during this next few months.
See you (hopefully) on Wednesday.

Easter OOTD

Happy Easter Sunday! 
Or just Sunday, if you don't celebrate Easter. 
I thought I'd show you what I wore today; a day which consisted of seeing family, eating chocolate and watching films *Frozen is AMAZING*
I wore: 
  -  a mint green lace dress from New Look
  -  an oversized cardigan from BooHoo
  -  a pair of brown brogues from Matalan 
  -  a brown Mischa Barton satchel *would I really use any other style of bag?*
I hope you all had a great day and thanks for reading! 
See you on Wednesday!

Wagon Wheel

Happy Wednesday! 
As some of you  may know, the American Country Music Awards were a few weeks ago now, and one of the performances during the show was by a man called Darius Rucker; an American musician. Before the show I'd never heard of him, but since that night, I've barely managed to get his song 'Wagon Wheel' out of my head. 

I can't quite decide if this song is very narrative like it seams at first, or whether it's full of hidden meanings. 
If it were to be taken narratively, then I think it's about both a physical and mental journey. This is because many different places are named throughout the song. 
I really like how up-beat and jolly this song is; it instantly puts me in a good mood. 
I appear to have fallen in love with this song, and I can't get it out of my head. 
This post has been super short, sorry about that, but I don't really know what to write, other than the fact that I am currently loving this song, which is what I wanted to tell you all. 
Thanks for reading, see you on Sunday!

Easter Tree DIY

Happy Sunday!
As I'm sure many of you will know, this time next week will be Easter Sunday. So in order to get into the Easter-y spirit, I thought I'd make this little *and adorably cute* Eater tree!
You will need:
Glass (or mini-vase)
Little chocolate eggs
Hanging egg decorations (optional)

I started off by finding an old newspaper and laying it down on the table so I didn't get paint everywhere, although I still managed to get it all over my hands. There's a tree at the end of my garden so I snapped a few of the empty twigs off and pulled of the bits that looked like they were about to fall off anyway and made the twigs slightly smaller to the size I wanted them. I then painted them a rather pale purple. I decided to use one of the little sample pots that you would use if you were decorating your home so I didn't have to mix together the few colours of paints. I used the colour 'Gentle Lavender' from the Dulux range which was £1.59 from Homebase. I only painted on a thin coat so they didn't take long to dry; only about 20 minutes. 
Once they were dry I placed them into the glass and dropped some little 'Milk Chocolate Eggs' from Sainsbury's and some 'Mini Cream Eggs' from Poundland. 
On the branches I hung four 'Decorative eggs with hanging ribbon' from Poundland on a few of the branches. 
And there we have it, an Easter tree. What's great about this is that it gets you into the Easter spirit and you can eat the chocolate in the glass; its a win-win situation!

Happy Wednesday! 
As some of you may know, I might have a little obsession with some ginger dude called Ed Sheeran, so when he announced that his new single 'Sing' would be played for the first time on Monday, I will a little excited. Just a little; barely at all really *sense the sarcasm* 

In the space of two days I've sort of fallen in love with this song *and learnt all the words, but that's besides the point*
He said himself, that this song is pretty self explanatory, although, like with many new releases the media insists on otherwise. They all seem to be convinces that there's super big, juicy story behind a song. 
One of the first things I noticed about this song was the chords used and the fact that they are rather different to the ones Ed normally uses. He picked up on this in the live-chat that he did on Monday evening and said that he was apprehensive about the song because of that. Personally I love the change here; it shows that he's growing as a musician and I love that I get to witness that. 
Ed's new album, 'X',  will be out within a matter of months and I can't wait to see what he's been working on for the past few years.

'Spring Has Sprung' Tag

Happy Sunday! 
A few weeks ago, I was tagged by my friend Emily to do the 'Spring has sprung' tag, so without further ado, here it is! 

1. What are some spring trends you're looking forward to the most?
I really can't wait to start living in pastels again, especially some cute shades of pink which seems to be an upcoming trend for the next few months. 
2. What's your favourite spring clothing piece?
I don't really think I can pick one, but it is probably one of the many lace or floral dresses that I own. In fact, I think they're all lace or floral, or both for that matter. 
3. What do you do during your spring break?
Well this year it's all about revision for me as I have my GCSE's next month and the month after too. But, of course, I shall spend time with my friends and family too. 
4. Is it warm or cold during spring where you live?
Ermm, both? We're a good couple of weeks into spring now, but it still rained over night. But I live in England so I've sort of grown to expect that. 
5. What's your favourite spring lip colour?
Generally, my favourite lip colour is a bright, bold pink in the spring time, but I'm pretty sure extremely bold colours don't really suit me; or I'm just too scared to wear them. One of the two. So for me, I tend to wear slightly darker, less in-your-face colours, like a muted pink or red. 
6. Favourite spring nail polish colour?
Any pastel colour really. I've got some pastel purple nail varnish sitting next to me right now waiting to be used after I've finished writing this. 
7. Favourite Spring colour?
Probably any light, pastel-y colour really, although lately I have been loving everything powder pink.
8. Favourite Starbucks drink during spring? 
Ermm, water? Does that count? I'm not really a Starbucks drink girl, their cookies however, that's a whole other story...
9. Do you add colour to your makeup for spring? 
Sometimes, if I'm feeling adventurous that is. But even then, it'd be the slightest possible change that only I and the most observant of people would notice, like a slightly pinker blush or something. 
10. What are you most excited about for spring 2014? 
Easter. Just because I get chocolate and the Frozen DVD (hopefully). Oh and to see family and stuff... yeah?

Comes and Goes

Happy Wednesday!
This week I've decided I'm just going to jump straight in to rambling about the song and not say some weird thing at the start like I normally do. Although I guess this be count as a 'weird thing'. Ooops. Oh well.
This weeks song is Comes and Goes by Greg Laswell.

I'll be honest, before hearing this song, I had no idea who this Greg dude is. Turns out he's a pretty amazing American musician.
I think that this song is so meaning and can be related to so many different situations depending on what one you happen to be in. When I first started to think about this song I thought it was about how, in life, there are good days and bad days. When something has happened in your life, you often experience more bad days than good. But then after a while some more of those good days start to appear again. Although, there will always be the odd bad day in your life and that's just what you have to accept. Nothing is ever perfect. This song is about excepting the fact that these days will come and go; go being the most important part here. The bad days won't last forever, and that something I think we all need to be reminded of at times. Everything will be all right.
