01: Had a looooong week of work experience. I met some amazing doctors and patients but it really made me think: would I be able to do this? I didn't know if I wanted to spend the rest of my life studying. I'm so confused...I have a med course in September and after that I will make my final decision. Also it depends on my results too :( Life is so hard sometimes.
02: CONTEST. I'm moving it for the 2nd time! This time because I didn't think about the fact that I'm going on holiday on Thursday so I wouldn't be able to send it.....stupid me. Make sure you all enter okay?
03: I love relaxing. Right now I'm drinking tea and watching Big Bang Theory. I watched Toy Story 3 yesterday. It's funny, my sister and I always dreamed that they'd make another one and they finally did. It was really funny and good but there was something I disliked about it. It really upset me, how Andy has grown up because it made me realise how much I've grown up too. How I had sold and given away a huge portion of my toys. After the film I didn't babble on about how amazing it was, I was quiet and sad. It had a really strange effect on me...but nonetheless it was beautiful. Thank you Pixar for granting my wishes and dreams.
04: I'm preparing for my holiday! I bought the most amazing rucksack and wallet from River Island. I know people hate RI for it's tackiness but I. Love. Tacky. It's just so sparkly and out there that I gravitate towards it!
I have been eyeing up the bag for some while and when I saw it on sale for £10 I died a little. At the till however they reminded me of the extra 25% off and so I bagged it for £7.50. *happy dance*
The wallet was just a random buy. I've always loved River Island purses because they're so designer inspired and I got this one for £10 (if i had just waited a day for the 25% off sale...). It so pretty and roomy, I love the coin purse inside!
Some bits and pieces of jewellery. The cupid's arrow necklace is from Accessorize and the bracelet + earrings are from matalan. (Go check matalan out btw, they have a lot of cool stuff!)
Well that's all for now. I'm going to resume watching The Big Bang Theory and maybe go to Primark for some shopping.

01: It's been a loooong week. It was my last week of school this year as I have work experience next week and it just dragged on and on. There were quite a few moments where I wanted to just skip some lessons but I was good and went to every single one. We even had a lecture by a guy from Raleigh talking about gap years (I did not know you could take gap years in summer hols) but I was most amazed at how hot he was. Seriously, he was yummy stuff.
02: While other bloggers may be faffing about Eclipse (ew ew and double ew) I am thoroughly excited for Toy Story 3, Despicable Me and Shrek 4. I'm such a child but I don't care! Some of my favourite films are kids films <3
03: I am LOVING Miley Cyrus at the moment. I have no idea why, I know a lot of people absolutely hate her (I don't know how you can hate someone you don't know or never met but ok...) but I admire her for being able to put up with the kind of shit that gets thrown at her. Yes she's done some weird things (the lap dance, the recent outfit) but I still love her! I'm especially obsessed with her song "When I look at you" from the movie The Last Song. Very tempted to watch now...I'm also loving B.O.B feat. Hayley Williams - Airplanes ;)
04: LOVING MY CAMERA. I'm sure you can tell since I'm posting loads on my flickr and on here with my outfit posts. Do you like the pictures? Let me know <3
05: Follow my twitter :) It's just that next week (29th) I'll be going to Paris, Zurich and Rome and I won't be able to make a blog post during that week but I will tweet a lot and upload pics etc. I'm so excited! Have any of you been to these places?!
06: Currently loving Jane Austen. I'm read Pride & Prejudice and I've been watching Sense & Sensibility. SO GOOD. I'd have love to live in those times, it's so cute and innocent <3
The next two/three "la semaine" posts will be huuuuge, one about work experience and the other about my holiday. Have a great evening darlings!

[credit]01: The sun is ablaze. On friday it was sports day and the most hilarious thing happened. I was wearing pumps (because I'm an idiot) and because I have skin that tans easily (WHY DO I NEED TO TAN, I'M ALREADY TANNED!) my feet TANNED. And guess what didnt...my toes. Yes my toes were extremely light compared to the rest of my foot. Embarassment to a new level. I showed my friend and she proceeded to call everyone in to show my foot: how great are girls schools hmmm? Anyways it's getting a bit too hot. I nearly died in the heat and I felt like lying on the ground in pitch black.
02: SLEEPOVER. My friends finally came round and saw my house and then we proceeded to watch craploads of films and eat craploads of junk. We started off the night with Mean Girls. How amazing is that film? Lindsay Lohan was amazing in it. Then just to carry on the Rachel McAdams theme we watched The Time Travellers Wife. Such a beautiful and strange film. I thought it was really creative but also confusing, I wouldn't have understood it if my friend hadn't already watched it. Then to lighten our mood we watched....THE HANGOVER. We watch this at every sleepover; it's a ritual now. BEST. FILM. EVER. I always crack up at it, it's hilarious. Sadly we were tired from the heat and passed out after that but we did watch My Sister's Keeper in the morning. Incredibly sad and touching, I've read the book and the film was lovely too. Any of you guys watched these movies? Tell me what you thought of them.
03: I went to Primark today. A big one. I have a feeling I was completely overwhelmed since I didn't buy much but I did buy loads of PJ's. And a gorgeous lace dress which will be featured in a post in the near futureeee!
04: CONTEST UPDATE. I'm adding two new prizes! A necklace from the previous post, annnnnd a LOVEFILM giftcard that my Dad recieved! He gave it to me saying I can give it to a friend, and who better to give to than you guys? You will get 2 months of free rental of DVD's from Lovefilm. If you end up falling in love with them like us since they're lovely then you can just carry on and pay monthly. Orrrr you can cancel if you didn't like it (which I doubt.). By the way you will have to be 18 or over to use this card so if you are under 18 then please get a parent to sign up with the card. It expires at midnigh on 20.11.2010 so make sure you squeeze your two months before then!
05: Feeling the pressures of my religion and culture. My parents don't want me to show leg so I have to wear leggings and I feel like a complete numpty wearing them in this weather. Sigh...Also they're being crazy and saying they don't want me living on campus at uni and if I go far, they'll move near. Ugh I really hate my culture SO MUCH. Why can't they give me freedom? And the reason? Because I'm a GIRL. And their friends will gossip and shit about it, but all the boys in the gang are allowed to live on campus. The girls at uni in my culture group who go to uni, go from home. How upsetting is that?! I don't know..it's really bringing me down!
Sorry about the waffling darlings. And hello to all new followers :) There's three things that I'm going to cheekily request.
