Saturday is my day

Saturday is coming to a close and although I have literally done nothing today, I feel as though I've achieved a lot. Plus I have enjoyed my nothing-ness day! It's as if I really needed a day like today. My head feels clear, my room is clean, I am happy and I know I'll have lots of lovely sleep tonight!

Today, as I said, hasn't been filled with lots of major plans - however I seem to have done a few bits and bobs and just made it a very leisurely saturday. It has indeed been wonderful.

I popped to do my food shop and picked up some others bits and bobs to keep me entertained today!

Oh the colours are too pretty!

I chose 208 PAPARAZZI for my girlie mood

Then I went wild and added some sparkles...I think I'm still a 6 year old girl!

I had my performances of Animal Farm yesterday, which to my very surprise, actually went ok! I admittedly did not enjoy the whole process of being in that play, however, the performances were fun and the audience appeared to enjoy themselves. It wasn't the best show of the week, I know that! However, to have made everyone laugh and knowing everyone in that audience smiled that evening because of us - well that's enough for me! It's over now anyway and I am very happy to say that for my last project at East 15 Acting school I have been picked by the brilliant director Hamish Gray (who has recently been in Salmon Fishing In The Yemen) to be in I Remember Mama by John Van Druten! Plus I am working with my best friends on it as we were all picked by him (privileged!). This news has made my weekend!

I bought this bubble bath purely because of this little quote on the bottle! (I love it!) Oh, and it smells divine.

I made a yummy smoked salmon dinner mmm

This song is amazing to put on when meditating & relaxing

I did a short amount of yoga & meditation to get me sleepy before bed

And now Saturday is over and I'm in bed watching Friends. The little things are what something every day to make yourself smile. It makes a world of difference!

And now I'm watching Friends in bed with a Vanilla tea!

I hope everyone has had a relaxing saturday too.

Night night sweet dreams!

Brought to life

Thanks Ed, you've made my night! 

Ed Sheeran Small Bump Official video.
I had to share this, because I love the man himself, this song and now the video too!


Now you're in my way

Wow. Bad day. In fact, not to be too negative, a terrible day. I had nightmares all night (and bloody real ones too...) therefore I had no sleep, woke up with bad thoughts and I haven't stop thinking about the nightmares all day. I feel so horrible.

Please, stay out of my dreams tonight. I beg you.

My lovely outfit. If only I had good legs!

Also, I am in a performance of Animal Farm tomorrow, which I'm fretting about. I hate the fact I have to be an animal and I hate the fact that it's tomorrow and we have yet to do a full run-through (would you believe it). The joys of having an unorganised director and drama school. I prefer to be organised, on-top of things and excited for a performance, other wise my anxiety levels are awful. Yay.

On a positive note...
I went shopping, bought a beautiful pair of shoes from River Island, visited the Disney shop (which always cheers me up), started making my friends birthday present & had a wonderful dinner with my best friend Sophie (who never ever fails to make me feel better). But this was at the weekend. So since then, things have gone a little down hill...

My lovely new shoes from River Island. I'm thinking they'll go beautifully with my leopard print 3/4 length dress!

Me (Ariel) and Sophie (Belle) at the Disney store. These dolls are on my wish list for sure!

Anyway, I hope tomorrow brings a better day. I need some good sleep, if anyone had wonderful sleeping advise I'd sure appreciate it! 

Night all

Fall at your feet

I'm a sucker for boys who can sing & play guitar. 

Ben Howard, Ed Sheeran & Bon Iver are all up there in my top five. 

So when I find out Ben Howard has done the most incredible cover of one of my secret favourite songs right now, I immediately think 'Share on blog NOW'! I do hope you all love this as much as I do...

Are you a fan?


Met Ball fashion 2012 part two

Winners (in my eyes)

Surely you'd all agree Kate Bosworth, Ashley Greene, Camilla Bella and Candice Swanepoel look incredible? I'd definitely be happy if I were them. They are rocking their looks in these snaps!


MET Ball fashion 2012 part one

I'm all about fashion, red carpet events and celebrity sightings. So I always look forward to the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!! The celebrities and fashion designers go all out, wearing daring dresses, fabulous head pieces and show stopping shoes. I die (in the words of Rachel Zoe). 

I am absolutely in love with Emma Stone. Not only is she a fellow red head (holla!) she is wearing red! Which to my surprise looks fabulous on her! I always think I definitely can not get away with red, but she has which makes me second guess my judgement here. Then again it is Emma Stone and I am not quite Emma Stone. So maybe not?! But anyway...this Lanvin red dress is to die for. Short and sweet. Girly yet strong and eye-catching. Beautiful Emma! Definitely Cinderella worthy.

Great photo of the incredible Emma Stone wearing Lanvin 

For someone who usually adores the style Alexa Chung rocks, I was throughly disappointed by her dress. It looked wrong with the white shirt underneath. When I saw her Twitter photo I thought maybe the shirt was under for some 'getting ready' reason, but I was sadly wrong. Hair looks beautiful, as does her make-up...flawless as always. If the dress did not have the shirt under, I'd probably be a fan. But no, the shirt is not working for me Alexa. Sorry! 

Unsure about the white shirt Miss Chung. 

Now Camilla Belle however...her dress = WOW. Her make-up = DIVINE. And her hair = ROMANCE.
I just think she blew the onlookers away. Breathtaking. I literally don't have a bad word about this look. Every little detail including the colours of the lips to the delicate earrings and the shimmery nails. Just 'mmm'. WINNER in my eyes.

Camilla Belle looking phenomenal.

Camilla Belle you win the Cinderella award. 

I WANT Jessica Stams' dress right now. I'd die for that dress, it's (I want to swear I'm that excited) amazing. BUT if I'm completely honest, whoever styled her did her make-up, hair and jewellery all wrong (in my opinion anyway!). I think with that amount of bracelets she does not need earrings. So take the earrings off! Cool, quirky bracelet overload (that I appreciate) but then her make-up-well mainly her eyes-look like she's been hit. She just looks very rough in the face if I'm honest! Plus I'm not keen on the hair. It's too dark and looks quite violent for this stunning, beautiful, decorative (YES I LOVE IT!) dress! It's a John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress. And I want it. 

Jessica, loving the dress, hating the look. 

I will post my favourite looks next. 

Who killed you with their red carpet look?

(use a condom!)

My new crop top from H&M for the Fashion Against AIDS range (love).

You should check out the H&M Fashion Against AIDS range as it's truly amazing. Plus 25% of the money is donated towards HIV/AIDS education and prevention projects. So it's fashion that makes you feel like you're doing something good too! Winner.



And although I'm 21, I still eat Petits Fillous chocolate deserts, get excited about watching My Little Pony the Movie and love the cheesy teeny-boppy song Call Me Maybe. By 'love' I mean literally addicted.

Cheesy video to make you smile. Don't pretend you don't sing along to this with a hairbrush and a mirror!

This makes it a little more 'grown up' I think ??

Am I alone in this?



When I suddenly feel things are going right, I admittedly get a little scared. I get scared because things can only last a certain amount of time. But I am working very hard on being positive, staying cheery and not thinking about the consequences before anything has even happened. 

I fear failing all the time in most or all aspects of my life. This is something I want to work on. I want to be ok with being wrong/failing. We only learn this way.

Live in the now. Failing is ok.

My cousin showed me this & I think it's so true.

I have had a great weekend so far. Friday night included a Skins-like party. Mostly spent in the bathroom. This sparks interest... It's interesting, but I'm not telling. And Saturday, day in bed. Saturday night meal time at the Indian restaurant with three of my closest friends. Sunday. Oh how I love a Sunday, especially knowing I also have the Monday free (love long weekends). I have spent the day make-up free. Chilled out and eaten lots of yummy foods. Including a cheeky Petits Fillous chocolate desert. Yes, and I loved it. 

I hope you are all enjoying your long weekends.
