Things about me you probably didn't know..

I love tan lines.

I think lighting is the most important thing for a picture.
I believe being selfish is the worst personality trate you can have.
I like children, but wouldn't be bothered if i never had any myself
I find people that have crazy sleeping habits exciting.
If you'd met me, you'd probably think I don't care what others think about me. I really do.
Smiling is essential.
School is shit, but important.
I can't wait to go to college, university and then get a proper job.
I couldn't see myself doing anything other than working in fashion.
I love polaroids.
I laugh A LOT in awkward situations.
I like to gossip.
I'm a perfectionist.
Procrastination is my number one hobby, it's also my favourite word.
I've never really liked bobs or short hair on girls, so am quite confused why i got a bob cut.
I've always wanted to be the kind of person that people find intriguing and mysterious. Sadly, I'm quite easy to understand.
I'd love reading, I'm just not very good at sticking to one book.
The lovely bones is the best book ever.
I enjoy watching films in which you have to think to understand them.
I think crying is embarrassing, only a few people have seen me cry.
Crying with laughter is very different, everyone's seen my do that.
I'm in love with Kate Nash and am so so so excited to see her in October.
I'd HATE to be a stay at home mum.
I get freaked out by people who have less than 10 tagged photos on facebook.
Not being able to articulate what I want to say drives me crazy.

i've got a thing for lighting..

I think lighting in a picture is one of the most important things to have right. 
Here's proof of my theory...

And if you still don't believe that lighting is the most important thing. Think about the film Twilight.. Ugh. I literally couldn't watch all of this film because the lighting is so horrible!

A new tradition..

Basically, me and my 3 closest friends have a little tradition, not sure whether something we've only done twice can be called a tradition but it will be a tradition soon (!) , in which we go Wales for a few days in either the summer or Easter holidays each year. We stay in a caravan, eat lots and lots of food, take pictures, gossip and have LOADS of laughs! 
Here are a few of the many pictures we took this year..

Mainly photographed by me.

I apoligise for the lack of posts, I've been very busy, with exams, revision and lots of fun times! I also apoligise for not continuing the birthday post which I said I'd continue, but yeah there wasn't loads of other good things from my birthday i wanted to post, and if there is anything else i'll just post it later.

Enough of my excuses, and take a look at quite possibly, the love of my life..

three words:
oh. my. god.

There are currently over 1.5 MILLION web pages that feature or reference a deer brooch. This is way too many!
Don't get me wrong, I love a deer brooch as much as the next person, but I just think it's all getting a bit too repetitive. I mean, how many time have you seen someone with a deer pinned to their chest, an owl on their finger or a bluebird hanging round their neck? The answer is too many, right? And what ever happened to being original?
OK, so there's not much point in me saying all this and not doing anything about it, so here's some lovely alternatives to that owl, deer or swallow brooch you're used to seeing.

Alternative Brooches.

simply inspirational

Above are 4 beautiful girls, that all really inspire me but in a few different way. Whether it's for singing, acting or just being generally amazing, these girls deserve some recognition. You've most probably heard of all of them but may have just overlooked them as average girls. I can tell you they are not just average.

Marina Diamondis -
Marina Diamondis, better known as her stage name, Marina And The Diamonds, is a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Wales. With her first album coming out February of this year, Marina is already a very well known name. So, why does she inspire me? Well, aswell as having amazing songs, she's got a very nice selection of clothes and is actually a really nice person. Watching her on a few different programs, she's actually so down to earth and seems like a really 'normal' star, unlike a few stuck up ones I can think of.

Alexa Chung-
I want to be Alexa Chung. The first reason being her AMAZING dress sense, the way she can be so casual but still look chic, and that her hair can be shoved up or messily down but she still looks beautiful. Another reason why I'm jealous of her is the things she gets to do, front row on catwalks, invited to every event and having her own TV show with Henry Holland (who I also love!). I envy Alexa so much!

Kate Nash-
For those of you who know me or have my facebook, you'll know i'm literally obsessed with Kate Nash. I love the way as soon as you play a Kate Nash song you'll know it's her singing, because of the style of the song and her strong accent. I also think her lyrics are amazing, they're so much better than the usual lyrics of today's music, such as songs rapping about women 'getting low' etc. She sings about what she feels and usually has a really strong opinion to most subjects, which i love. Aswell as this, i want her hair colour!

 Zooey Deschanel-
 Zooey Deschanel is, as you can probably tell by these pictures, beautiful! She is also extremely talented, amazing at acting, such as in the film 500 days of Summer (coincidently one of my favourite films) and she's a brilliant singer, being in the band She & Him (coincidently one of my favourite bands!). I literally couldn't think of one thing about Zooey that's bad. Honestly, I think I'm in love.
