"You go Glen Coco!"

You probably guessed what this post is going to be about and if you don't then ....what-really?
After a hilarious P.E lesson in school today , I just can't stop thinking about funny quotes from Mean Girls , it is just the ultimate sleepover film! Anyway, today we had to stand on a box thing in P.E and fall onto a crash mat, whilst shouting a quote from Mean Girls ,  like "Nice wig Janice, what's it made of ?" ..." YOUR MOM'S CHEST HAIR!" which made P.E  particularly funny! I love Mean Girls and I've probably watched it over fifty times like most other teenage girls , I decided to compile a bunch of pictures together to show you some of my favourite quotes and images , which I found on the web so full credit is given to the owners of the pics!








You've got to love Mean Girls-right?
On another note , tomorrow the countdown to Christmas begins for most people around the world , it seems as if the countdown starts earlier every year , what with all the Christmas adverts-have you seen the John Lewis ad , its really cuteeee!And now it sounds like I'm advertising John Lewis .....well...I suppose I sort of am , accidently-ah well , watch the cute vid below:

Halloween Special : part 2

The wait is finally over , here is the epic conclusion to the somewhat delayed Halloween Special!You can finally see my Halloween costume and I know that its late because Christmas is just around the corner and I feel a bit rushed - but hey ho!
OK,first off,here are some pics of me , Niamh ( niamhy moo) and Michelle ( minnie michelle) at a different Halloween party (in different costumes)
WARNING: NIAMH'S COSTUME IS REALLY VERY SCARY , awesome , BUT SCARY!

Below is my partly home made costume, in case you were wondering , I'm  a  Groovy Zombie. My leggings are Primani and so are the neon hair extensions , I made the shirt myself by splashing a whole lot of diluted red paint onto a plain white tee.





Watch out : Niamh the clown is about! Below , It the Clown , otherwise known as Niamh (left) frightened the life out of nearly everyone , after getting her face painted to perfection. It is seriously scary isn't it? And poor little red riding hood , Michelle ( right) , is stood there just wondering whether the clown is actually smiling or not!



And  the results are in....... ( if you don't have a clue what I'm on about then you need to read Halloween Special :part 1 !) Out of the five contestants , you  ,the public , have voted for the winner ,  and remember , the results of this competition could be potentially life changing ( dramatic build up) so, with that the winner , with 33% of the votes is ....
A CLOCKWORK IRIS!

Draw in Light

Drawn in Light is an English fashion label specialising in individual , free hand silk screening techniques and smart yet understated shapes for women - based in London they produce elegant minimalistic pieces which are beautifully diverse.I first heard about Draw in Light through ElleUK , I then discovered their website, which opened my eyes to gorgeous , elegant ,  floaty garments , which I instantly fell in love with.This is the kind of label that gets you excited , you know ,  you can just tell it's going to go somewhere!
The S/S 13 collection is named Noise , featuring silk wrap trousers and white gloss greenhouse dresses, sounds slightly odd , I know , but believe me it is a really amazing collection which is really worth having a look at ( see the full collection at Draw in Light )








There is also a really cool sort of artsy video on their website showing how their skilled workers create each individual garment by silk screening patterns on to delicate fabric. I found it really fascinating and sort of beautiful , I strongly suggest that you watch (follow this link ,because it wouldn't load - why I don't know! )
Just to let you guys know the Halloween part 2 will be coming very very soon and I apologise for the delay , I just get distracted really easy and had to tell you about D.I.L!

Chococo

I had to tell you about an amazing gift which I got from my Aunt , it was the best white chocolate I have ever had - literally! And it looked amazing as well , decorated with swirling pink roses and dark green leaves  it is the best white chocolate lolly pop I have ever seen.I believe the brand is known as Chococo ( which I have never heard of ) so ,now , marvel at the dazzling pictures below and also be jealous!




Unfortunately , the very same white chocolate lolly , affectionately known as Chococo has now been eaten and he will never return to be marvelled at again....sorry I couldn't resist!

The clash

I love it when vibrant colours are teamed with a just as bold clashing print.A fair few weeks ago I bought a shirt from Bijou Vintage and I'm just in love with it. It's sort of prada-esque : the bright cubic and spherical patterns.I also recently purchased an orange heritage style jacket from t.kmaxx , its just so edgy and I can't help but love the tartan lining ! When these two powers of awesome come together they create the perfect clash (well I think that it does anyway !)









 And just because you knew I would....The Clash! :D

#hashtags

Hashtags are overused and over rated: #FACT....No , but , seriously people are actually using them in real life - IN A CONVERSATION WITH A REAL PERSON ( something that I will probably never understand) A person is not a computer keyboard or twitter itself, so just stop this madness now!!!

Yeah, that little rant was a bit pointless because I occasionally find the use of a "hashtag" in a conversation quite hilarious :D 
 What am I on about please?

Temple Run

A couple of days ago my Mum discovered Temple Run and she has become addicted - like seriously, its actually kinda scary ( she's playing it right now , as we speak!) It's not like my Mum is some sort of technology enthusiast or something -  that's why it came as a shock to me - but hey , this is a modern world ( we don't need no one to tell us what is right and wrong) .....Yep , you guessed it here is "Modern World" by The Jam - I just love breaking out into song!



I have a confession to make, it is not just my Mum who has an obsession with Temple \Run .... Admittedly , I too suffer from Temple Run addiction! It's not even a new game - ugh! What is wrong with me?Anyway , don't forget there is still time to vote for the Halloween special  ( anyone can vote! And if you really want to you can vote anonymously on the post below)
