Well... it definitely has been a while. 
2 years? a lot happens in 2 years, apart from growth.. seems it's true, you do stop growing at 18. Hoped I'd be 7 feet tall by now. DOH (credits to homer)

It's time for a fresh start, I'm no longer a teenager, I no longer live at home. I actually have adult responsibilities, I do however miss living off my parents, it's hard having to choose between shoes and food nearing the end of the month.

 But I've missed this little blog, just writing freely whatever comes to mind, making good use of boring evenings instead of snap chatting people videos of myself singing along to Disney songs (yeh it happens), and getting really, weirdly, scarily into it and do things I'd not normally condone.

But get ready for better content, better camera quality and hopefully a newly updated version of this blog, Oh and a new name, sounds more grown up and saucy ;)

I'm excited.
(a lot of buts in this post. teehee)

January & February Favourites

Life's hard when you have a broken laptop, and with my laptops sudden death (which definitely had nothing to do with me accidentally spilling hot chocolate over it, ahem) I decided to take a journey and unleash my inner cave man and do things that didn't involve the internet or technology, I had planned to read and grunt at er things.. So during my failed cave man experience times (you'll understand in a moment) I went out a saw quite a few films (oh there it is) - won't lie, I couldn't handle a technology free day and forcing myself to read my old Dr. Seuss books just didn't feel pleasurable enough - and discovered new music that made me jiggle like I've never jiggled before. I also got reconnected with new and old clothing of which I loved putting on during the dreadful snow, which is still here.. in march?.. Thus concluding my January and February favourites, wow I made that longer than it should of been.
Films... (click film name for the trailer)
Les Mis : I read the book, saw the Broadway show and when the film came out I said what the heck, lets do the trio especially as the film was jam packed with my favourite actors, however, I know it's a musical, but the whole film was just singing, no dialogue which I won't lie, annoyed me a little, however great film, and the thought that all the singing was done live, amazing! Just don't watch it expecting dialogue...

Life of Pi : such a beautiful story, and the CGI and camera work was amazing and the colours, especially of the sea, beautiful.

Warm Bodies : Let's take this moment to appreciate Nicholas Hoult's face. That was a moment well needed. Great film, predictable, but I loved it! 

Pitch Perfect : My new favourite film, I watched this 3 times and I just kept wanting to see it, so funny, new found love for Fat Amy and Anna Kendrick (she's my height, I'm not alone :'D) After watching it be aware you will be singing 'Titanium' and loads of other songs, and pretending you too were part of an acapella group, or this could just be me...awkward if it is.
The Impossible : I have never vigorously cried whilst watching a film before. The story is tragic but has such a beautiful ending, what are the odds of  such tragedy happening and your whole family, including little children, surviving and finding eachother? Beautiful, it really makes you appreciate your family more. Amazing acting aswell might I add, you really feel the emotions, ahh it's just beautiful.

Wreck It Ralph : I offered to take my little cousins to watch this, so it doesn't seem like I wanted to watch it ;) but like a lot of childrens films, very entertaining.

The Hobbit : I did enjoy it, however, I was expecting it to be better. But good film very exciting and (for some unknown reason) seeing Gollum made me a lot happier than I should of been.

Django Unchained : The D is silent. Quentin Tarantino always knows how to pull it off doesn't he? 
Music...(click on the title to listen)
Everything Everything Arc : I may be quite late, but after hearing Cough Cough a while ago, I never took it upon myself to find out who it was from, until I heard it again at a party, Love the album. Go have a listen!

Rihanna Stay : I'm not the biggest Rihanna fan, I love her old stuff, but whatever, when I heard this song whilst listening to Grimmy on Radio 1, I couldn't help getting obsessed over it. Beautiful song and Mikky Ekko and Rihanna's voice blended amazingly well.

Bastille Bad Blood : What can I say, I bloody love the album!

Justin Timberlake Mirrors : He brought sexy back! Currently playing this, I love JT, so glad he's back making sweet sweet music again.

One Direction One Way Or Another : 1 thing that's going to annoy me about them recording this song is that little kids are going to believe that they're the original artists, poor Blondie, however I was blown away by how great the boys voices sounded, especially Harry's, his voice goes great for this genre.

The 1975 Sex Ep : Vastly becoming one of my favourite artists, great band, go check them out.
I delved into the box of my childhood on a snowy Februaries day and stumbled across my Dr. Seuss collection and decided to pass them on to my little sister, I'm sure she'll enjoy the wacky stories and rhymes as much as I did (still do), but she has yet to come face with them as they're currently lounging on my desk as I read one by one and laugh, on my ones, at the sillyness, I love Dr. Suess he inspired me to write a whole story in rhymes when I was 10, I gave up half way but I tried (twas hard). Rhymes can win any child over.
There's a Wocket in My Pocket is one of my favourites, I managed to memorise the whole book back in the day, Go Me!

I'm confused to why I never bothered reading Lauren Weisberger's books, well, the fact that they made one of her books into a film could be a reason, there's a film why bother reading it when you can watch it right? however, having nothing much to do lately, I ventured out and bought these three books and I ended up really liking them, well expect 'Everyone Worth Knowing' I wasn't much of a fan of that one, I found the whole book predictable and the ending incredibly annoying, but other than that, great books.

Wacky Things About Me

The 25/50/100 random things about me tag is getting around a lot recently and as I'm sat at home listening to the aggressive howlings of the wind and drowning my sorrows in a whipped cream and marshmallow infested hot chocolate as Valentines day approaches (forever alone), I decided to jump on the bandwagon and have a go myself, so here goes...
 1. I never take myself too seriously

2. When I was little, my Dad made me believe there was a ghost living in our house, 'Barney' and I always tried to befriend Barney by leaving him cookies when I go to sleep and talking to him (myself) when I was alone in my room... my parents did worry

3. I used to be a Stardoll addict a few years ago, I have been clean for 7 years now

4. I am easily scared. I accidentally poked my friend in the eye, out of fear, whilst watching, not playing it myself but WATCHING someone else on YouTube play slender

5. I have a severe case of selective hearing as well as a short attention span, but surprisingly, I'm a good listener

6. I laugh a lot

7. I'm allergic to cats and it doesn't help when I stay over my friends house as her cat enjoys sitting on my face when I'm asleep, Kinky Kitty

8. I developed a hatred for apples when I was about 7. I was eating an apple from my packed lunch and it pulled out my tooth 

9. When I'm 30, my little sister will be 12 (I feel so old)

10.  I was in Sugar Magazine, once upon a time
15 year old me lovin' life (sugar mag) / I gon' be 30 and she gon' be 12?!
11. When I was about 6, whenever my tummy was hurting I used to think I was magically pregnant.. I have no idea why. And following that, at 8, I thought if you kissed a boy on the lips, this was how you got pregnant, you have no idea how I much I freaked out when a boy kissed me whilst playing kiss chase. The innocence

12. I can be quite ditzy sometimes, I need to learn to think before I speak

13. I got to sit with the pilots on one of those little planes once. That was when I discovered my fear for heights

14. Eventhough I sometimes come across very girly, I'm actually quite tomboyish 

15. I'm allergic to Pineapple, from all things, Pineapple ... ...

16. I can dislocate my shoulder 

17. I know all the words to the 1st High School Musical soundtrack, and more embarrassing the dance to we're all in this together... get'cha head in the game! 

18. I do a weird little (sometimes subtle) embarrassing shriek whenever I trip or fall, I have no idea why, but it has become a habit - I am a tad clumsy, I managed to break a plate WHILST eating the food on the plate, next thing you know, it's on the floor. It all happened so fast

19. I can put both legs behind my head ... I am a freak of nature 

20. I can be a little (very) weird .. sometimes...
as evidenced 
21. I have a very large family on my mum side, I have a total of 36 1st cousins (probably missing someone out), who live all around the world, which is always the greatest excuse to travel. 

22. I have 1 older brother (who has thee most difficult name to pronounce, my parents got a bit carried away with the Arab inspired names) and a 1 year old sister, Bzi (bitsy) who is half Filipino and German. I'm currently living with middle child syndrome, and here I was thinking it won't affect me at 19

23. My first celebrity crush was Orlando Bloom when I went to see The Lord of the Rings, it's obvious to say the 7 year old me had great taste ;)

24. I got bitch slapped by a monkey on holiday once, most bizarre thing

25. I still check under my bed for monsters, I also can't sleep with my wardrobe doors open. I blame Monsters Inc, that film ruined me. But it would be quite cool to have a monster like Sully coming out to scare me

 I hope you enjoyed this post, I sure had me some fun writing it. Me and my Dad are currently trying to calm our giggles on the memories of the silly things I did and believed as a child - I was such a weird littlen (I'm saying this like I'm no longer a massive weirdo) I shall end this with one more thing,
I take the crusts off my bread, yep I'm one of those people .. and don't get me started on the first and last piece of bread ..

ps. excuse the lame mirror selfies, I was feeling spontaneous
