I haven't even had a busy summer - I went to Spain waaaay back in June for a Sun and Sangria holiday with my best friends, and also managed to survive Reading festival (for those followers who know me, mud rain and slumming it are not things you would associate with me) and actually had a brilliant time! Ok, so my £16 bargain pop up tent wasnt waterproof, and also wasn't big enough to fit it me AND my 6''5 strapping lad of a boyfriend, and yeah my blackberry broke within the first few hours, and I did come back with a respiratory virus which I am STILL recovering from, but honestly it was one of the best weekends of my life. I haven't got round to printing of my disposible cameras yet, so you'll have to settle for me telling you some of my highlights on here!
1 - Blink 182 closing the weekend. Without a doubt the best of the few bands I saw, they sung beautifully and Travis Barker played the drums upside down on a rotating platform, which was incredibly cool. Watching them with 100,000 other people singing along, the only thing that would have made it better would have been seeing it with my boyfriend, who got lost in the crowd :(
2 - Festival headbands and Festival songs. Despite getting teased for bringing a huge 'beauty bag' containing make up, nail varnish, hygiene stuff and accessories, by the second day i was giving out headbands and mositurising the boys, proving festivals don't neccesarily mean getting filthy! I also had the best time drinking from ridiculous o clock in the morning in the girl circle and changing lyrics to well known songs about people we know/what we were doing.
3 - rating and hating other girls festival attire. The standard uniform for girls was a cute dress or denim shorts with wellies and long socks, plus several layers of cardis and coats, and had me extremely jealous of girls that have the pins for daisy dukes! However the worst outfit? A brave/stupid girl in denim shorts and a slutty white cutout bodysuit...in the rain.
While I'm not sure if I could physically and mentally handle another year at Reading, I am proud of myself for sticking it out and only sneaking home once for a shower (in my defence I only live half hour away!)
Anyway, I'll put the pics up soon and be back tommorrow for another post. Also, hello to my new followers, sorry I haven't given you anything to read for so long!

This is the advert for the new Eclipse film in the Twilight saga. Ever since twilight came out in cinemas I have been obsessed (enthralled, captivated...you get the idea) with the books, movies, and vampires in general. while Twilight has faced some hard and heavy competition from the Vampire Diaries, i can safely say that Stephanie Meyer's creation is my first love. This is the new trailer, to get you all as excited as me...

I am 99% sure Chuck is going to live, and my bet is on him being in a coma, and Blair rushing to his side.. at least I hope!
As for the rest of episode...
Serena needs some new facial expressions and a new voice instead of that nasal whingy sound that annoys me beyond belief. And seriously, get over Dan Humphrey, what is this; round 2951 of your relationship??!!
Vanessa: stay in Haiti.
Rufus - shave of that god awful tache.
Little J, please fuck off for good!
Apart from these minor drawbacks, the finale was amazing and has got everyone in a tizzy, and I cannot wait for the new series!

My flowery obsession does not stop at my head; I have bought five floral dresses in the last 2 weeks, which I will probably accesorize with - you guessed it - more flowers.
What has brought on this floral madness? Wherever I go, I see girls with their faces obstructed by what looks like half the local garden centre, and their outfits look like they've been rolling in my Granny's flower beds.
Not that I'm complaining - I rejoice in my new found love of the flower; feeling like spring and summer has finally arrived, and I delight in feeling like my drab long brown hair can be spruced up with a simple flower clip.
And who do I feel has nailed this topiary trend? The Queen of headbands, Blair Waldorf of course.
In fact, I was so taken with her outfit I paid homage to it last night;
Wearing a cream h&m shift dress with appliqúe flowers around the neckline (sadly obstructed by my new hair) and my new flower headband from h&m.
Now where's my Chuck Bass?

had a horrendous hangover today - actually thought I might have incurred a skull injury last night in my drunken stupor!
Me & anna decided to go to a gay club & sing kareoke - did a truly hideous cover of Leann Rhimes -Can't fight the moonlight, and had an amazing time with our new gay friends and Lucinda Lashes, who compared us to girls aloud! I rocked the spanish senorita look, with a pink ruffled one shoulder dress and matching flower headband, and some golden oldies topshop shoes i have worn to death!
I had to laugh at us this morning though - anna threw up out the window of the taxi as we drove home, and i woke up half naked with cheese all over my floor, and a plate next to me with half eaten toast with heinz spag bol and doritos on top (wtf??!!!) which was not a happy hangover sight.
staying up late & watching first series of desperate housewives online (Bree Van Der Camp, i heart you) and wondering if my new chiffon blouse will go with me new straw hat?
hmmm i'll let you know tommorrow,

spoke to helen, the woman whose supervising me, and turns out she went to my uni, and lived in my halls! got another two week placement in october and some really good advice on how to work there in the future.
Also spent hours today opening Akex Reid fan club letters, i fucking hate that cunt!
Came home and decided to just relax in bed all night watching 90210, purrrrrrfect, although am job hunting which is a bit of a downer! someone employ me pleaseeeeeeeeeeee :)
Tommorrow is my last day which i'm upset about, but means i get a lie in for the first time all week on saturday - i miss my 12 hours of sleep! & i also have a 15 yr old assistant to come in and help me with my job, which lightens the load bigtime.
anyway, nunight xoxoxox

Yesterday was absolutely exhausting, think they were testing me out - spent 2 hours going to 3 M&S's for this particular choc bar for a photoshoot!!! was absolutely knackered last night, had to drag myself round to Rosies for dindins. The Boy surprised me aswell with a HUGE bunch of flowers and big box of ferrero rochers to make up for our big row ♥
Today felt better after actually falling asleep before midnight - first time since starting Uni i think!
Today was muchmuchmuch better, lots of sitting at my desk working, although Lucie Cave asked me to do her a fave, and after she thanked me, called me a sweetheart & held my hand, so i was loving life!
Treated myself to a gorgeous chunky retro gold casio digital watch from Urban Outfitters, complete barg - reduced from £42 to £19.99, my little treat for working so hard/a souvenir of Landaaaaaaaaantown. Got home today and was treated to a Nandos from the boyf, then watched the penultimate episode of Heroes season 3 - completely addicted to it.
Currently planning outfit for tomorrow while watching 90210- I'm thinking OTK boots, leggings, and my purple and white skull crop, with my chanel style box jacket and of course my watch!

They had me look at last weeks issue and analyse it, saying what I didn't and did like about the magazine. Then i got a peek at the new issue of heat, closer, more and grazia (all coming out tommorrow!) & compared and analysed them. I had to also look on heatworld.com and analyse readers reactions to their stories, and brainstorm new feature ideas to show Lucie Cave (who I loveeeeee!) There was some more boring bits, like putting stickers on envelopes and sticking mags in them, but all in all was much more hands-on than I expected and I didn't make one cuppa for anyone...someone made me one!
I am soo jealous of the fashion and beauty editors; I gave out the post and in one day they recieved soo many freebies, on top of the mountain of bags and clothes and jewels that were mounded on their desks, most of not even opened!!!!!!!
anyway, gonna catch some 90210 (addicted) and get my 40winks ready for day two!!!

tomorrow I start my work experience at heat mag - uber excited, got my outfit planned already;
leggings, gold studded navy vest, cream cardi & my cream, gold & navy scarf with boat shoes, as am too scared to wear heels in case I look like a knob! I will prob just do rubbish jobs but it will be soo good on my CV, & heat is my bible.
Although im sososo excited I am hating being home as I get no privacy, unlike uni! and my parents seem to think sleeping til gone noon is unacceptable...
P.s - someone buy me an adorable mini pig pleaseeeeeeeeeee????????????
