Far Too Much Information

This weekend, we spent an awful long time in the garage, emptying out old toys and books from when we were little, which left me feeling massively nostalgic. Instead of writing another post about "Growing Up" (because you've all read those posts, right?) I thought I'd get nostalgic about the progression of this blog. I've looked through my first few posts and I think I've found one that will be perfect for this

Best Covers

A week ago, I told you that The Half Eight's cover of Shut Up and Dance is my current favourite cover. However, it still has some competition before becoming my favourite of all time; and I wish to share some of these competitors with you.

Mind VS Body

Today, I want to tell you a story. There are two characters- Mind and Body- who are not only the best of friends, but the worst of enemies. Mind lives inside of Body and has an awful lot of control over Body's actions. Unfortunately, Body cannot always do everything Mind wants her to do, and that's where problems arise...

A Chat With... The Half Eight

There are so many bands working their way up to success nowadays, it's difficult to find something exciting and original. However it does mean that, when you do find that one that stands out, it's even more special. Introducing, The Half Eight

A Chat With...

Eagle eyed readers may have noticed that I have a new page. The old 'Disney Diary' has been replaced by 'A Chat With...' which is a brand new project I've been working on for a little while. It's music based, so episodes will be uploaded on a Friday- however not every Friday, so if you prefer playlist posts, don't worry- they aren't going anywhere.

Finally, after months of sleep deprivation, multiple breakdowns and an uncountable number of packs of toffees, A levels are over. 3:30pm this afternoon, my black pen wrote the final half-equation it's, hopefully, ever going to write and the wave of exhaustion smacked me right across my face. Some people tend to either claim to not revise, or really shy away from telling others to what extent they truly tried for their exams, which I don't really understand. I guess it's not seen as a "cool" thing to do but, in 10 years time, when you're earning triple their salary, what's "cool" then?

How Did We End Up Here?!

10th June 2015- a few hours after the most horrific exam of my life, and filled with mild panic because my Dad was still stuck in traffic in my car, my sister and I bundled ourselves into Mum's car. Covered in incomplete make-up, possible odd shoes and a leather jacket, despite it being 900 degrees outside, we reversed roughly 3 metres out the drive, before Dad rolled round the corner in the car I'm insured to drive. Back up the drive we went, quick change of car- and we were off!

What Do I Like About Me?

I don't normally do tags. If I'm honest, I just don't find they particularly original and I prefer to be a bit more creative with my ideas- that's not to say they're all bad, just not for me. Anyway, Don'tBurstMyBubble may have completely changed my opinion of them with the 'What I Like About Myself' tag, which I think, is just flipping marvelous!

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

A short while ago, I wrote about a whole load of albums and music that I want but can't afford. Considering exam stress and general crapiness, it felt only right to treat myself to Florence and the Machine's new album. Plus, I write a music blog so it's just research, right?!

These Are a Few of my Favourite Things

"When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don't feel, so bad"
