because i am wearing blue
and it is monday
i love making jokes to myself.
anyhoo today was just another school day fvgsyjvkdfiukjcvheo89sdiufh (that is how I feel about school. I say that now, but I know I am going to be an emotional mess when I leave) but I got to wear my new dress from etsy yaaaaaaaaay. It's so flowy and preeetty and the lady that sent it to me also sent a little thank you card with it which made my day. 
Also, I just got a tumblr and I would love it if all zero of my followers would take a looky here
Now let's jam to Blue Monday by New Order just to remind you of my oh so funny joke

So today was just a boring school day, but it was the first day of wearing no uniform for my year so I celebrated with a dinosaur T-shirt. 

I love my new chunky shoes from Rokit, they hurt like a bitch but so completely worth it.

I felt a bit like Andy from The Devil Wears Prada today with my long skirt and chunky shoes.

 You know when you have so much to be doing that eventually you end up doing none of it? That is my day/week/life in a nutshell. I DID take some photos for art today but unfortunately I cannot show them off because 1.) I have no followers to show off to 2.) I'm pretty sure my sister would be against me displaying her face all over my blog, especially when I painted her face to make her look like she was just beaten up. 

I decided to do something creative to procrastinate today so firstly I made THIS beauty of a headband.

Basically, I ordered 32 fake roses off eBay for £8.99 (£8.99 WHAT) and they came today and I got a little bit over excited and made this headband. I think it looks like a crown I FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS. 

I also made this in tribute to one of my favourite bands, Japanese Voyeurs, who are sadly no more. I wanted pictures of flowers as the background, but all the pictures I could find were kind of boring and I really couldn't be bothered to make a collage out of them and then those dinging bells from cheesy game shows when someone gets an answer correct rang through my head and I thought of Stella McCartney. To cut a long, boring and pointless story short, I remembered she did these flower collage things and so I used them = EFFORT SAVED. 
I love the song 'Get Hole' and you can listen to it here I sound like an advertisement.  
Also, please excuse my two little fingers at the bottom of the page.

I dedicate this post to the sophisticated 1960's. I love the 60's, everything was so neat and clean and pastel coloured. I really wish I had been around in the 60's but I was only late by 36 years...

Some of the things I love about the 60's

The style
Sophisticated, feminine and pristine, I love everything about it, how can you not love it? Oh, to live in a world where people still dressed like this. Don't get me wrong, I love style from all ages, but I do get the feeling that fashion has lost its cleanliness over the years. And that's not necessarily a bad thing because I'm also in favour of the dirty, grungey look but every now and then, wouldn't you love to see a group of mods hanging around on the streets?

The music
It's just so happy and bouncy - whenever I'm feeling down and losing faith in humanity (which is usually when I'm on my way back from school and someone's asked me who Brian Wilson is) I can take comfort in the fact that I can merrily skip home whilst listening to The Beatles. I swear, skipping is by far the best means of transport. These are some songs from some of my favourite bands to come out of the 60's, in descending order of the pictures above:
I Get Around - The Beach Boys
On the Rebound - Floyd Cramer
Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
All Shook Up - Elvis Presley 
Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks
Sweet Jane - The Velvet Underground
Daydream Believer - The Monkees
Moi Je Joue - Brigitte Bardot
Paperback Writer - The Beatles
Type them into YouTube or whatever you kids listen to music on these days, and you'll instantly be in a good mood. With the exception of Behind Blue Eyes by The Who, because that's quite a sad song, but I had to put it in there because it's such a mellow song and you need a balance of happy and sad or else the whole world would be like the creepy people in the parallel universe in Coraline. 

The hair and the makeup
Again, so neat and pristine. I respect anyone who can make a beehive with their hair and keep it in, my hair is way too thin to hold a beehive - I think I'd need a whole can of hairspray to keep it solid. This eye picture is a still from Tom Ford's 'A Single Man' which is one of the most beautiful films I have ever witnessed. I tried asking my friends in English if they had seen it because I needed to share my awe with someone, but the only person who actually replied to my question was my English teacher. I'm not sure what that says about my taste in films, but I don't care I am in love with that film. It's one of those films that when you watch it, you're going OH MY HAVE YOU SEEN HIS GLASSES I DON'T SEE HOW THIS FILM COULD BE ANY BETTER. Anyway, I am going off topic. Hair and make up. Yeah I wish I could have my eyeliner like Julianne Moore's everyday, it makes your eyes look MASSIVE and glamorous. The 60's completely nailed the perfect eyeliner, which makes it even more sad that nowadays you hardly see it around, apart from the winged eyeliner. I'm happy about the fact that you see people who have barely looked into the 60's wearing winged eyeliner, I'm not going to be one of those people that's like 'YOU don't love the 60's as much as IIII DO so you don't DESERVE that eyeliner' because I think it's nice that whether they know it or not, they're representing an inspirational and significant era for fashion through their eyeliner. It just shows that the good times shall never be forgotten. 

The vehicles
I don't even know how to describe them, I just love the way they look. The way that they're like the olden days' idea of being modern and futuristic, so there's a lot of smooth metal shells and things, if you know what I mean. I don't think I do. I'm tired. 

HAIR the Musical
I saw this once with my friend, it's not in England anymore but oh my lordy I have never been more inspired to become a hippy. The whole cast got completely naked for a song, which was awkward, but once they had put their clothes back on I could really enjoy the show without looking like a pervert. At the end, my friend and I got up and danced on the stage with the cast during the finale. The whole audience was invited but it turns out we were part of the very few willing people in the audience. Still, it was so much fun and is another reason to love the 60's. 

Well, I have no followers so this post was purely for my own amusement but if you have read it, congratulations, I have respect for you. 



Today I stumbled across musical magnificence
Crystal Castles never cease to amaze me, their music is just so mesmerising and I can't think of any other music that sounds like theirs does. I love the way MGMT have such a cool vibe to all their songs and the combination of that with the manic-ness of crystal castles just makes such beautiful noise.

So, new blog for about the millionth time now. I just keep changing my mind about what I want my blog to be like and every time I start a new one I'm like 'this is the one, yep. THIS is the blog that I will love and cherish forever.' Then 3 months later I am bored and want a change of scenery. And here we are, another new blog, but I really do want this one to be different. I think I'm going to write more on this blog because I am forever searching for a new place for my mind to vomit something up onto and I'm sure the world would be delighted to behold what wondrous things are inside my head. I shall try not to neglect this blog as I have done in the past, but if nothing new is happening in about 3 months, you'll know that I have changed my mind yet again and am conjuring up a new blog, probably writing this same post. 
Sometimes I really hate being indecisive.
