George Sampson to win Britain's got talent!

I haven't posted in like a week... I was planning on posting a wishlist so ive been collecting up clothes I want but I only have like 3 items so theres no point just yet!

Now thats talent! Im totally in love with this guy... hes fantastic! I really think you should all watch this video!(His name is George Sampson... search his name on youtube theres loadsa cool videos=])

Miley Cyrus... Vanity Fair pictures.
I really want to say something about these photos... everyone is going mad about them but I honestly think they are fine. Its exactly what id expect from Annie Leibovitz, the photographer. If I was 15 I wouldn't mind posing like that because nothing is on show. I think the photo is beautiful. The only thing I would say is she looks a a bit to skinny as you can see her bones in her back... anyone else notice? but she is just 15. I did a presentation about Annie Leibovitz for college work... and she loves to shock people anyone remember the pregnaunt Demi Moore photograph and the naked John Lennon one. I know Miley's just 15 but I think the photo is fine lol =]

Anyway! I went out for my mates 18th last friday. She had a lil house party and then we all went to some clubs... heres what I wore... 100% inspired by Kirsty! thanks hun!!
Sorry the first ones blurry.... i actually didn't wear the black cardigan. (How cool is my mate Beckys outfit!)
Those are my friends :) Faye Ebz n Becky
Oh one more thing...
The Greatest Game Ever Played
Anyone ever watched this film? I watched it because Shia Lebouf's in it, its about golf and i'm not a golf fan so I thought I wouldn't enjoy it... but I really loved it! i'd give it a B Shia is great as always! & Disney used some really cool graphics to make the golf parts abit more exciting.x

Michelle Trachtenberg

So this might seem like a bit of a dumb thing to be blogging about but bare with me haha.... (this isn't a film review lol)
So when I was in year 4 of junior school, 1999, around 9 t0 10 years old I became obsessed with a film called Harriet the Spy. Everybody watched it? no? oh well lol 

This was first of many obsessions of mine lol, im known for being obsessed with films, actors, musicians. So a lot of my friends and family look back at my Harriet the Spy obsession and laugh because it was quite extreme for a 10 year old to be so taken in by a character.
I named my pet hamster harriet lol, i used to spy out of my letterbox! (seriously!) and once at school we had world book day...  we dress up as a book character for charity, so i bought Harriet the spy the book and dressed in a cool yellow coat and a belt full of gadgets lol, I looked like a complete idiot because no one new who I was supposed to be, but i didnt care at all... i always remember that day because I was finally able to be like Harriet the Spy without anyone caring because it was world book day lol!!

Me and my dad was shopping in Morrisons (supermarket)... and next to the till line there is always a basket full of old DVDs for like £2, i always look through there because sometimes I buy one, i found Donnie Darko in there last month =] and suddenly i found Harriet the Spy! I couldn't believe they had actually made it into a DVD! I showed my dad and he was like 'Oh my gooddd!' and bought it me for a keep sake and a memory of me as a kid (my dads like that lol) 

I only go to college twice a week... sometimes three times because a lot of my work is done at home so i have a lot of free time to watch different films whilst doing my work... so I put Harriet the Spy on when I was bored... and surprisingly enough I still enjoyed it! I thought I was gonna laugh the whole way through at how perfetic it was, but it wasn't. I decided to blog about it because I actually seriously think this film made me who I am today... or maybe thats not true maybe I loved it so much because when I was 10 years old deep down I always had this love for the media; for photography, films, and magazines. 

Harriet's notebook was 100% personal and she wrote what ever she wanted in there... when I first decided to start this blog thats exactly what I had in mind... I know its not 100% personal because all you guys are reading but I have honestly never told anyone I know about my blog (maybe just my lil cousin lol) because I wanted it to be totally me... without having to worry about who's reading.

'I want to see the whole world, and I want to write down everything'
'I want to remember everything. And I want to know everything.'

I 100% relate to these two quotes from Harriet in the movie... I do want to see the whole world... i do want to write down everything... i do want to remember everything... and i do want to know everything. Even though at the time I first watched this movie, I hadn't realised this yet.

So anyway... the interesting part lol! Michelle Trachrenberg is the actress who played Harriet in the movie, and coincidently she's becoming quite successful recently... especially with her new role in Gossip Girl and her new movie with Zac Efron!
I quite like her style as it is... but i'm 100% sure shes going to get noticed more for fashion now shes part of Gossip Girl.. i truly think shes amazingly beautiful so here are some pics =]
Your all going to think i'm mad lol! Even Stevens & Harriet the Spy! haha
PS - MILO VENTIMIGLIA IS IN ENGLAND! omg! I couldnt believe it when he showed up at the BAFTAS! I love him so much! I would have gone to london to find him if i had known! (seriously i met Zac Efron twice haha)

HAHA... clothes from the past

Thanks for your comments!
A lot of people mentioned that they didn't like Jessica Alba and they have don't know why... ME TOO lol but maybe its because I watched 'Awake' and shes like the biggest bitch in that film!

Oh and sorry about my annoying video! I just had to put it on! Even Stevens <3

Anyway!! So I found a CD named 'Every photo ever taken' its about 2 years old and I opened it and its full of holiday photos, school photos, dance photos and it was so cool... and I was looking at what I was wearing... and because its been only since I left school i've got into fashion so I was quite shocked when I actually didn't look so bad! 
These were all about 3 years ago

I actually remember this top... i love the pattern but I dont like the shape, but its okay for young people lol... I even added a lil pink belt! haha
Omg I made a right fuss to get that cap! haha
I remember that jumper was expensive and reallyyy itchy, and then there beige cords that i used to love... but why am i wearing the horrible pink bag! lol i remember i was wearing really cute turquoise flats with this

Thats my dad... haha 'NEW YORK BABE' havent changed much! =]

lol yep so theres some embarrassing photos from my past... most are from the same holiday actually... I wish my hair would curl like that now... actually i quite like how my hair is now... the curls are a little bigger... but I can't always rely on it looking good, where as when I was a kid it just used to go rigglets lol! I guess its all the straightening over the years =]
haha don't be too harsh on me :)

Some Clothes, Some Photography, Some Movies =]

So I ordered the navy mac and it came this morning!!:

Im really happy with it, its really thin and I was worried about that because its nearly summer.
The other outfit is just a random outfit I wore =]

So I have just started my final term of my two year college course (National Diploma Photography) so it's starting to get manic at college. At the end of each year you have to do a Final Major Project, and now its the end of the whole course I have to do a really big project which a subject of my own choice.
I've chosen Dance =]
I danced for 6 years and I quit 2 years ago when I left school... so I have quite alot of dance knowledge and the best part... I can use my mates as models lol! So I've been researching Dance and Ive found some amazing pics! I thought id share with you =]

This wasn't a film I really wanted to see... the trailer looked cool but I'd heard it was poor, as most horrors these days seem to be quite repetitive. It was better than I expected and I liked the fact it wasn't that scary and there wasn't lots of dead people walking around everywhere, but yeah it was nothing really I hadn't seen before. Some of the story line was good but I think the ending was a wasn't so good... if they'd carried on and developed the story line about the girl whos the eyes were originally it would be a bit more interesting but thats just me. C-

I wanted to watch this movie after seeing Jamie Bell on the Jonathan Ross show... I thought the idea was so cool! (I love heroes so it reminded me of that and i thought it sounded good) but Jonathan Ross really slated it and said the only good thing about it was Jamie Bell's acting lol. I kind of agree.... Hayden Christensen is so hot... another good thing haha! Nah I enjoyed this film! kind of! lol I thought it had a great start, the start of the film got me really excited for the rest of the film.. but then the storyline turned poor... i think the writers could have done so much more with this idea. Samuel Jackson's hair looked really bad and it annoyed my the whole way through lol! Rachel Bilson & Hayden are both beautiful but not the best actors, but I did like this film more than The Eye C-

I haven't planned to blog about anything so I'll just start and see where it goes =] Ooo so I'm saving up for this Navy Mac/trench... What do u think... I no summers coming and soon the colour will be out of season but truely here in England its never actually hot so I need a light coat like this and Navy is just my colour! The sleeves are removable aswell...What you think?
You all know by now that Jake Gyllenhaal is like perfect in my opinion but recently ivefellin love with Pen Badgley... Aka Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl... He's just beautiful! One thing you'll come to know about me... I'm celebrity addict I just love celebs in general so I go through phrases.
Alot of people couldn't understand why I gave Cruel intentions a C+... What's wrong with that? Its a good score! I thought it was a good film! but its missing the amazing acting and amazing story line its just good and entertaining if I gave cruel intentions an A what kind of score would I give films like Brokeback Mountain and Sweeney Todd you no what I mean =] although I gave Jesse James a higher score I actually prefered Cruel Intentions! But had to give it a B+ cus of the amazing acting and story line =] glad I cleared that up haha!

I've been reading alot about everyone getting into Universities and Colleges, Im moving out and going to Uni in October! not long really... quite scary! Im only moving about an hour east of where I live now so its okay! Im going to Nottingham Trent University to study the Italian Language and Media Studies =] Im so exciting... Im currently attending a night course for Italian so Im quite good... and my mom being Italian and all Im familiar with the language and it would be a dream come true to finally learn it... my course includes a year in Italy so that would be fantastic =] I was planning on studying film studies at university but Nottingham Trent was the only university which let me study Italian + another subject so after thinking about it Media studies is probably better... also after my first year I can specialise in film and TValso i could choose public relations and popular culture.
So in 5 years time ill have a Nation Diploma in Photography and degree in media studies & Italian and hopefully will be able to get a good job in the Media, also considering doing a a postgraduate corse in Hollywood culture and film which would be amazing also id like to study american studies... haha god I want to study everything!!

By the way... remember I'm reading Jarhead... Im loving it.x

Assassination of Jesse James

So my friend took me vintage shopping :) Although I hardly bought anything, i was quite impressed... there was a huge vintage shop and thrift market, i found most things were to big but i found this pink and white tye dye top, I haven't worn pink and white so I wasn't sure about it, but it was just £4! and no doubt it will look great with some shorts in the summer! Its my first tye dye buy! haha i'm not a big fan of the trend and the only items I like are simple with not such a big pattern so this was perfect! I also wasn't sure about the gypsy type ruffled sleeves... but recently I have noticed more tops like this in the shops... god I wore 100s of gypsy tops when I was like 10! haha
The second isn't thrifted lol! Its £9.99 from H&M and I love the grey/black/navy floral pattern on it.. but it doesn't fit right at all... something i've noticed with H&M cardigans, they only look good if you button them up and they seem to have like a gap for big boobs! Which is unneeded in my case!

The Assassination of Jesse James I watched this film last night because after seeing Casey Afleck's nomination clip at the Oscars I thought he looked quite impressive... plus Brad Pitt is always good! :) Being a 2 and a half hour film its natural for me to get a bit bored an confused after the first half, I think the hardest part was working out who was who and stuff.. but I always kind of knew what was going on which was a good thing... not so confusing. I think some of the film was unnecessary and just confused me lol but i'd say the last hour was fantastic! I mean... nothing amazingly shocking happened at the end... it just generally a great ending! & I think Casey Affleck was amazing! I'm going to start rating films so id give this a B+

Cruel Intentions yeah its and old film but one I've always wanted to watch because I love Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe is amazingly hot! I thought it was good... in some ways weird... i know that they are just step brother and sister I just still think there relationship was weird lol... and one minute Sebastian is a total jerk 2 seconds later he's in love and nice n sweet!... that part confused me lol apart from that i really enjoyed the film!  C+

I know I gave Jesse James a better rating than Cruel Intentions... i probably wont ever watch Jesse James again but then id like to watch Cruel Intentions again... if that makes sense.

Oh and Im going to read a book I always try and read books but I never finish them... unless there autobiographys... i love them lol. Well Ive just orderd Jarhead a story of a marine in the gulf war, Im not a big fan of war films... so on but I enjoyed the film so much I wanted to find out more... anyone else read it?

Check Voile Shirt

A new shirt I bought... £15 ASOS, its a size 8 though, I'm usually a size 6 so i think its a little big. Anyway I had a play around with different ways I could wear it!
Let me know your favourites! and any other ideas you have :)
Not really happy with the first 2 outfits... just experimenting... I love the 3rd outfit... the photo doesn't do it justice, argh I think it looks a bit emo/scene though which is really annoying specially as i was wearing a alice band aswell.
I like all these... i probably wont wear the 2nd one but it looks nice! i look abit to much like a cow girl haha! In the third outfit Im wearing a navy cardigan and its different material from the black wool one above.

Thanks for all your comments! If you didn't read the blog below I asked for you all to tell me abit about themselves! id love to get to know you all abit better :)
