i do love my hair coz of how thick it is but now, having it short, i have to straighten it all the time and also because my hair is so thick i cant get a fringe so it is quite annoying!
so big news!! i am off to gibraltar tomorrow for about a week and a half! i am very excited to get to wear my flip flops coz i never get to wear them here in manchester! i will try to post when im there but i will have to go over to my uncles which is a bit of a pain so i will probably do only like 1 post. im so excited for the beach! hopefully ill get a bit of a tan but we ll see!
so onto music since i seem to be posting about everything but music at the moment!
1. im a big fan of forever young by alphaville. theres an amazing video of oc clips with that song in the background and its just so beautiful so when i heard the song by jay z and mr hudson young forever i got so excited! i love it! the original is definately better but if you dont compare it to the original then its actually quite beautiful.
2. example is finally in the charts with watch the sun come up which is just such a beautiful song in the same way as sweet disposition by temper trap. just reminds you of a summer love.
3. currently touring with florence, who is actually finishing her tour tonight, is the xx. their music is just really beautiful in the similar way to the songs i mentioned just above. i seem to be really into these sort of slow, sweet songs!
so hope you have a great week and you can follow me on bloglovin so that as soon as i do post youll know. bloglovin is amazing.... good night x

seth and summer in the oc, lana and clark in smallville, juno (love this kiss!), hayley and nathan (they are the only reason i watch one tree hill, i hate chad michael murray with a passion), 500 days of summer (best indie film of the year!), ethan and someone who isnt silver on 90210 (my sister loves this program and i never watch it but the other day i watched 5 minutes of it and totally fell in love with ethan and silver but i couldnt find any good pictures of them together so this will do for now! im still trying to hunt one down) so finally ive done this cute couples post! ive been meaning to do it since this wheels on fire did it (check out the blog here. lots of film photography and if you like the sort of films i do then youll love it) when i started to look for pictures i realised that all the couples i like dont really spend alot of time kissing or looking adorable, they fight alot and have quite an abusive sort of relationship and usually end up breaking up hence the title (britney lyrics from everytime) i really do have bad taste in men!
i just had an immense lunch of:
two pieces of toast with chocolate spread, 3 mini cheese and courgette muffins, a muller corner yoghurt, some yoghurt covered fruit flakes and a cup of mint tea!
i think thats the biggest lunch ive ever had and it was wonderful!
i went shopping just before and bought:
three pairs of knickers in topshop, a flowery blow dryer, some kind of balm from toni and guy to sort out my hair and make it managable, some heat protective spray (also from toni and guy).
maturally my hair has a ridiculous amount of volume so i think im gonna straighten it for the weekend and use the balm to leave it natural for school!
wow! this is a long post! and nothing about music! oh well! hope youve enjoyed youre weekend x

im totally obsessed with black and white! just so beautiful and classic! so BIG news! WOOHHOOH i cut my hair off! well its like a long bob but for me its cutting it all off! i just washed it and it was so quick, like my hair had NO knots! there was nothing to wash! so i love it! it looks like the first picture but without a fringe! im really annoyed i cant post a picture of it but i dont have a camera but i was speaking to my friend and she said i can borrow hers so when i get round to it you will get to see my beautiful face! school was so much fun today coz everyone was SO shocked about my hair so it was lots of fun shocking everyone! i look alot my mum now but thats not a bad thing coz shes very beautiful (although i am a bit biased!)
so a few random thoughts
1. lovin the name leighton at the moment. id never really thought about it but now its like on my top 5 names list (i dont actually have a list but you get my point!)
2. lost prophets song its not the end of the world is so great. they really make the best songs to sing along to at the moment.
3. on the nick grimshaw, he has been playing his record of the week called secret lover by private (the egyptain lover remix) and its really grown on me. its so sleazy, the kind of song you feel the need to shower after and normally i HATE these sort of songs with a passion but this song is So sleazy that it ends up being not so sleazy, just sort of funny! its hard to explain but check it out.
4. please venus by the golden silvers. just a very pretty quirky song.
5. sweet dispition by temper trap. is this song in 500 days of summer? it sounds so familiar. im sure its in a film. please leave a comment if you know and btw its a beautiful song. definately my latest music obsession.
so i think thats about it and sorry ive not been posting as much i just have soo much work! school is just crazy at the moment!thanx for all the lovely comments. they really mean a lot to me. have an amazing weekend! x

red hair is soo in right now and im totally lovin it! but it has to be red not ginger. im thinking of using henna in my hair coz i dont wanna try any harsh products on my hair. so im getting my hair cut on thursday and its soo scary. its gonna be like the scariest rollercoaster ever but even worse! its gonna be very traumatic. im giving my hair to a cancer charity and they use the hair to make a wig for a cancer patient so its not a pointless haircut but its gonna be very hard. ive got to have 30cm off which means instead of my hair being past my waist its gonna be like a bob! its gonna be very different but thats what i want. its like a new beginning. im gonna look so different. its very scary and exciting!
so onto music, im lovin pink floyd another brick in the wall. its legendary, my friend likes singing it when shes getting told off in school ('we dont need no education')! as well as having legendary lyrics its also really tuneful and beautiful.
paramore are so fun and hayleys hair (last picture) is sooo cool! im lovin ignorance at the moment so i wrote the lyrics on my hand so everytime i look at my hand i see 'ignorance is your new best friend'. go paramore! just good american emo pop.
congrats to taio cruz on the new no. 1 with break your heart. very addictive song. have a good night x

i just love these guys at the moment. im totally addicted to little lion man.
hes just so beautiful isnt he. i dont normally like male models but with that adorable face and the beautiful tattoos, im on love with the guy! and the best thing is i have absolutely no idea what his name is but im totally not bothered! however if you do know who he is then id love to know.
i used to be totally obsessed with lily allen but now ive moved on and as im sure ive mentioned im totally obsessed with florence. lily allen just has such great lyrics that all girls can really relate to and she has such a great fashion sense although i dunno how she can walk in some of the heels she wears. she also has such a beautiful voice. sounding so innocent and sweet and her songs are so heartbreaking like stabs in the heart by a little innnocent girl. thats a horrible image!
i just love her. one of the best faces in film.
last night i watched my best friends wedding with my sister and it really is the king of rom-coms. like you can tell all rom-coms now are loosely based around the same formula as my best friends wedding. a great film but im so desperate to watch when harry met sally again, i NEED to borrow that film again!
just a few pictures of florence. i couldnt resist!
shes so beautiful.
the steel closets one of my favourite blogs and they just did an amazing post about kanye west which you can check out here.
so have a lovely weekend and i think my song for this weekend is song away by hockey. check it out this weekend and enjoy! x

shes got her halo and wings hidden under his eyes but shes an angel for sure she just cant stop telling lies..
i love angels. whenever i wear a white outfit, my inspiration for the outfit is always angels and this beautiful song by the killers called under the gun which is from their third album, sawdust. if you have the album then listen out for the track (its track no.6) and if you dont have the album then buy it! its not their best album but its probably the best lyrics-wise. heard the new taio cruz song called break your heart and its not exactly revolutionary but it has been going round my head all day. its just very addictive. did i tell you i spoke to taio cruz? no i dont think i did. basically nick grimshaw used to do this show on weekend mornings where you could call in and speak to a celebrity and it was taio cruz the week i foned in and i wasnt too excited to speak to him but it was very exciting to speak to nick grimshaw coz he is just very cool!
have a good night! x

im so in the mood for winter at the moment! its just really exciting! i love black and white pictures soo much so above are some of my favourites at the moment. i especially love the rihanna photo, she is just soo amazing!
btw what the hell is up with kanye west?! he gets on my nerves, he just needs to get over himself. he is a genius but hes totally ruining it. im sure youve heard this a million times so i will shut up!
also i realise im not too great at reviewing songs. im just not very good at describing music so i wanna give you a link to the radio 1 chart blog which always gives amazing reviews so you can check it out here.
just want to say congratulations to pixie lott on the no. 1 with boys and girls. its a great song and the charts are just looking SO much better at the moment! have a good night x

i shouldnt like the way models looks smoking coz i know smoking is wrong blah blah blah but there is something so beautiful and self destructive about it. i guess i like the look in the same way as i like the look of self destructive boys like some of the pictures of eminem, he looks so broken. i love the look of a guy who looks like hes smoked too much dope and its finally got to him. i love the pained look, like its gonna kill him to say those words but he says them regardless.
but i know i never wanna date someone like that. these guys, theyre just so beautiful. like kelly clarkson says, 'a beautiful diaster' guys like kurt cobain, heath ledger are just sooo beautiful. i look at pictures of heath ledger and he is just so beautiful and i just wanna cry that we lost him. thats the thing with these sort of guys, they are so tragic, they always end up dying young. and so dramatically.
what a depressing post! im in a really wierd place at the moment (just listening to regina specktor laughing with)
so i never really talk that much about the blogs i love so i thought id tell you a few:
the steel closet- such a fun blog to read with very regular posts. topics often talked about: fast food, video games, funny little nothings, interesting facts and random cartoons.
kaelas room-lots of beautiful pictures and interesting fashion shoots. also there are some very cool underwater shots that she has taken. very jealous of her camera!
tangerine umbrellas on an indigo day-a blog written by two very interesting girls. just such a cool name for a blog! anyway they do film reviews, shoots of what they wear and other interesting things.
and lastly that was subtle-a blog written by an aussie who is travelling around alot. now she is in spain which sounds so beautiful.
i do love so many blogs and i cant describe to you every single one so check out the beautiful blogs list at the side of the page. the weekend is drawing to a close so hope you had a great time this weekend and get some sleep tonight coz its back to school/work tomorrow! x
