when you find that things are getting wild dont you need days like these..

Wow. What an August I have had! Firstly, I started the month off with an amazing 4 days in Barcelona with my boyf. Had such a brilliant time, I fell madly in love with the place, with it's history and it's beautiful obscure buildings and designed by the brilliant Gaudi, got a fab tan and got to spend some amazing time with my boyfriend just the two of us.
Then, last Thursday - A Level results day - I got in to Swansea University!! Followed straight afer on Friday with a long weekend at V Festival where I saw some of my favourite artists like The Courteeners, Eminem, Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, Ocean Colour Scene (a lyric of theres is the title of the blog post as I think it's just so fitting as I'm having a mad/busy/wild month and have just enjoyed a gorgeous peaceful day in the sun going for a walk, to the cinema and for a meal with my boyfriend) etc.

It has literally been such a whirl wind of a month and it's not even over yet!! September will be just as mad I'm sure what with shopping for Uni stuff, my birthday and then actually moving to Swansea. It will be so mad but I seriously can't wait. I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life!

Pictures of Barcelona coming very soon and I'll do some posts about the stuff I buy for uni and stuff for future uni goers :)

Also I have to mention the giveaway over at one of my favourite blogs being little. Probably one of the best giveaways I've ever entered, she's giving away some amazing stuff to celebrate the first birthday of her amazing blog so head over there, check it out and give her posts a read!

Jesus loves you more than you will know


This post is coming quite late (I mean in the day although it is actually also quite a while since my last one.. oops :( ) but my sleeping pattern is actually ridiculous nowadays! I don't get to sleep till at least 4 most mornings and have been spending my nights watching re - runs of One Tree Hill, my all time fave TV show!

I've been really toying with the idea of stopping blogging, whats the point if no one reads it? and I really have nothing interesting to say ever! but my boyfriend has been very adammant (his name is Adam.. hehe) that I carry on and so I promised him I would. He's lying next to me right now, lightly snoring and he just looks soooo adorable (although him slowly edging over to my side pushing me out is not so cute, more incredibly annoying!) it made me remember my promise and decide to get back into it. I reeeeally love reading other peoples blogs and I do really want to keep my own so I'm determined to this time! I don't know anything about fashion or beauty so I'm going to take this blog in a kind of, journalish direction.. a bit like Rebecca from R for Rebecca and Danni from ellieand who talk through their days and stuff quite a bit and are two of my fave bloggers!

I do actually have nothing interesting to say today though haha. The blog title is from the song "Mrs Robinson" as I'm sure you're all aware which was a question in the game of Trivial Pursuit that I just beat Adam in ;). Playing Trivial Pursuit, watching One Tree Hill, having movie nights and going for meals with my boyfriend and doing pub days with my friends is all I seem to have done since I finished my exams.. not really the most exciting of times but I've been having fun.

Movie night treats courtesy of the boy - meringues and onion rings, my fave!

Tomorrow I'm going for a game day/night at my friends.. I'm soooo excited, been a while since I had a girly day and what could be better than board games, Chinese, alcohol and your best girls?

There is one piece of exciting news I want to share however.. on the 1st of August me and my boyfriend will be going to Barcelona for the week!!!! SO EXCITED! Seriously can not wait. It'll be our first proper holiday :) We've been on weekends away to Swansea and Plymouth and he came to Summerset with my family and I but this will be our longest holiday alone :). I'll be taking LOADS of photos there so when I get back I will deff have something interesting to talk about!!

Barcelona bound baby!

Sunglasses I won in a giveaway from Yes I Dress, absolutely gorgeous and will be able to get plenty of wearing out of them when in Barcelona ;)

- Bek :)

P.s - Can tell how crap at blogging I am by my pictures. Can anyone suggest a way to upload them so they are the same size and I can add a little border and place them nicely!? I hate the way their looking at the mo! (also quality's not great as I'm using an old, awful camera but that should shortly be sorted!.. hopefully)

SENNA review :)

Me and the boyfriend went to the Cinema on Wednesday night to see Senna. One of the best films I've watched for a long long time. It's basically clips taken from Ayrton Senna's life and put together telling the story of his amazing racing success' and some of his racing lows (he was a racing driver in 80's/90's) and other footage giving you an insight into this incredible mans life. I love life stories of famous people and this was so good because it was real, not one scene was acted it was all taken from archive footage which made it so moving and emotional and extraordinary. I was literally on the edge of my seat in some of his races crossing my fingers that he won. I would definitely recommend this film for anyone who enjoys a good biopic and you don't need to know anything about or enjoy motor racing to fall in love with this beautiful, inspiring man.
And girls, if this film doesn't sound like your cup of tea but your man is dragging you along to it, Senna is a lovely bit of eye candy ;)

Welcome back life!!

Wow, I've finally finished exams. I'm obviously relieved that its all over but a bit of me is like :\ "ahhhh end of secondary school for good now! Now I'm officially an adult in the big wide world, heading off to uni living on my own!" which is really very sad as I've utterly left my school now where I had the greatest 7 years of my life and also very scary because.. I AM SO NOT READY TO DO THINGS ON MY OWN! I can't cook, wash, iron.. I need to do so much learning over this summer, seriously! :\

Anyway, before all that I have this longgggg summer ahead of me. Yay! Have been waiting for this day (end of my exams) for so long so I can wake up at whatever time, text a mate to hang out with and not worry about revision. There is sooooo much stuff I really can't wait to do! I've made a list :)

- Start this blog, properly! Been so busy I've not been able to really blog the way I want but now I've got so much spare time I'm going to get this really going.

- Learn Italian :) my boy brought me a DVD of it for my birthday in September but I haven't even took it out the wrapper yet! Can't waittt to get stuck into that!

- Go out too much and get too drunk.. well, you only live once ;)

- Read, read, read! Starting with The hunger games! love a good read and haven't had the time to read anything that wasn't history, psychology or drama related for so long.

- Go away with my boyfriend! We're looking at maybe Portsmouth and Barcelona. Gahhhh, if they manage to go ahead they will be amazing!

- Maintain my healthy eating and beauty routines. Sort my skin and body out ready for flashing the flesh in Barca ;) or Cornwall where I am 100% going to with my family in July :)

- Go to as many art galleries and museums as I can. I love museums, find them so interesting and relaxing and I know this summer me and my boyfriend will be going to many different ones all over England

- Update my iPod which has night had any new songs on it since like September!
- Spend lots of time with my boy :)

- Spend lots of time with my friends :)

Gahhhh, this summer is going to be amazingly fab!! Does anyone have any plans for summer?

P.S - my posts wont usually be this wordy :)

pirate, skulls and bones, sticks and stones and weed and bombs

I have been terribly MIA from the blogging world. Well, half and half as I've still been reading everyones blogs daily but I just havn't been in the mood to actually write anything. I do have a very legitamate reason as to why but I'm not really comftorble discussing it with the whole of the world wide web atm so you'll just have to forgive me, please!

I do aim to get back soon, when things have cleared up and gotten better so please bare with me :)
BTW does anyone know where to get cheap quitled/padded jackets from!? Topshop and river island have beautiful ones but there way too expensive for the amount I have in my bank at the mo, and eBay is massivley letting down on this one! Please drop me a comment with any suggestions, would really appreciate it.

P.s - anyone see what I did there with the title of the post, an M.I.A song as I've been M.I.A ;)

please don't go crazy if I tell you the truth

For those of you who read my last post you'd be expecting me to be in Bruges this week with my boy. Unfortunately we wont be going, sad times :(:(. We didn't actually book the holiday, my boyfriend just reserved a place until he got paid to book it. When we went back on Friday to pay the travel agent told us we didn't have a place and her colleague shouldn't have said we could reserve a place because they don't do that. VERY GUTTED!! I guess I shouldn't have mentioned it as it wasn't a definite and now feel like I have definitely jinxed it. In future I will not blog about something I'm looking forward to until it is 100% as I'm extremely superstitious like that and it was just the excitement of the trip that made me break one of my rules. However, I think it's safe to say that one day we will get to the beautiful city that is Bruges :)

On a happier note my camera finally came!!! This means that I can finally take some decent pictures and do some consistent posts. I'm not sure what though as I don't really know where I want my blog to go. I don't want it to be a fashion blog as I honestly do not think I look good like all the other girls who have fashion blogs although if I'm wearing an outfit I really love I will blog about it. I'm thinking I kind of want this to be like an online diary maybe, something I can look back on and enjoy. I'll have a think about what kind of posts I can include in my blog but I'm interested in your opinions too, what would you like to see?

Here's just a few pictures I'm loving right now :)

All pictures from weheartit

P.S - I know alot of bloggers prefer bloglovin' to follow blogs on and it's been recommended to me so I thought I'd sign up so now you guys can follow me on bloglovin' too!

plenty of girls and boys in love

(Not 100% sure where all of these are from. Some are from here otheres from here)

Finally my exams are over. I'm not exactly sure how they went, I guess we'll find out in March. The end of exams and constant revision means I can finally pay some attention to my Blog! I have so many post's in mind but the camera I got for Christmas has broken so I'm waiting for it's replacement to turn up so I can take pictures. It's taking for ever though so I might have to borrow my boyfriends for the time being.. we'll see how long it takes.

Speaking of my boyfriend, he has just booked us a mini holiday!!! It's a four day cruise, with a night on the boat two nights in Bruges then another night on the boat. I'm so, so excited! I love Bruges, such a beautiful city and I've started learning a bit of Flemmish :) We're going in the February half term. Has any one else got plans for the half term? I'd love to hear them :)

The next photos I upload of Bruges will have been taken by me :)

i felt it, i was perfect

I wasn't planning on doing a post this week (with my Psycholgy exam on Friday I was planning on devoting all my attention to intense revision), but after watching Black Swan last night I really felt like I should do a quick post about it.

I can't actually describe how weird or beautiful this film is. From the brilliant director Darren Aronofsky  who has made beautiful, powerful films such as Requim for a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler and starring one of my favourite actress' Natalie Portman and briefly featuring another of my faves Winnona Ryder, I do believe this film is a must see. It's direction and plot is so easy to watch and although it has a recieved few criticims, I personally loved it. I also want to stress that although this film is about a ballet dancer, you do not need to be a female and/or into ballet to enjoy this film... I personally hate dance films and I dragged my reluctant boyfriend along to watch it with me and by the end of the film we was both stunned into silence.
Another masterpeice from the brilliant Aronofsky.

Has any one else watched it yet? What did you think?

NEW DESIGN...... again!

Rather late blog I know, but I've not long gotten in from work and I paid off my eBay then checked the blogging world and other peoples lovely looking blogs made me jelous so I thought I'd try make mine look better. This has not worked...I don't think I will ever be happy with my blog layout/design!!!

I can't wait for next Friday to be over with as then I don't have to worry about exams untill June and I can get my life back and real blogging can commence as its safe to say the content on this blog so far has been rather poor!
