The end of an era...

Hi guys! I'm so sorry for the recent lack of activity on my blog, I am determined to do more posts! So last night, me and my fellow Twihard friend went to see Breaking dawn part 2. What did I think? That the film producer is obviously wanted to watch all the twilight fans squirm because it is so bad. If you've seen it you'll know exactly what I mean. I think there was actually a point in the middle of the film that I wanted to leave. What was with all their strange appearances? I'm not joking when I say, that I think as all the films have gone on Robert Pattinson has been edited to look more like Voldemort and less like the heart throb that he's supposed to be. Nine years after Stephanie Meyers initial dream that sparked Twilight, four books, five films, many tears, many laughs and many comparisons of boyfriends to Edward Cullen later, it's all over. All I can say is that it's definitely the end of an era.

Read it!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to tell you all about a book that I read in the summer. I've been meaning to post about it for ages, but remembering things is not my strong point! Anyway, after I read The Hunger Games, I started looking around for more futuristic kind of books. During my scout, a friend recommended a book called Divergent to me (by Veronica Roth). I'm not going to lie, I was pretty sceptical. Mainly because I hadn't heard of it before and I had never heard of Veronica Roth. To this day, I still struggle to find Divergent in book stores and libraries. But I decided to give it a go, and ordered Divergent and the following book Insurgent, from Amazon. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I will give you a rough outline of the plot. Beatrice Prior lives in Chicago, which is divided into five factions, which all value different things. (for example bravery and selflessness). When she becomes sixteen she has the chance to choose which faction she wants to spend the rest of her life in.

I read one page and from that moment on, I was hooked. Literally. I read both books in a week and completely loved them. This sounds so cliche but, I laughed and cried. To be honest, if you thought there was a lot going on in The Hunger Games, your wrong. The majority of the books is Katniss moaning, in these books you are turning ten pages a minute. All I can say is, read them! I guarantee you will love them.

Hey everyone! It's half term for me at the moment, which is so good. I think everyone needed a break. It was Halloween yesterday! Yay! Usually I'm not really big on the whole Halloween thing. But, not going to lie, I never say no to a chance to dress up! This year I decided to go as a cat, which I will admit is the same as the last two years. Me and my friends went trick or treating. Ironically i only  started doing this, when I was probably too old. But then again, are we ever really too old, to knock on peoples doors and ask for sweets? What are you doing for Halloween?

A little story...

In May last year, I started parliamentary debating. I know it sounds ridiculously boring and snooty but it's actually not too different from normal debating. It was me and a few others in my year, we didn't have much experience, but did a few competitions against local schools. Midway through June, we got invited to a competition hosted by and at Eton College, yes the really posh Eton college that Prince William and Harry went to: not to mention Spencer Matthews from Made in Chelsea. We went along, just for the experience, not expecting to win or anything. We didn't win, the other debaters were a lot more experienced - from a range of schools and a range of ages. Although that competition didn't go too well, we carried on debating at school, hoping to improve. Then came a really exciting opportunity: Eton had invited all the schools that participated in the debating competition to train with their team, once a week for a year. We jumped at this chance, and lets just say that under the watchful eye of the coach we are definitely improving:even if it is slightly intimidating being in a room with older, more intelligent and more confident Etonians. I can honestly say that I'm probably in the room with the future Priminister, which is a pretty good feeling. Eton is actually a little bit like Hogwarts, I have a sneaky suspicion that they have a great hall. Anyway, have a look at this video, I think it's hilarious, tell me what you think.

Velvet shorts

Hi all! So, today me and my friends went out for a meal, to celebrate one of my friends turning fifteen- yay for being able to get into 15's at the cinema, without being given death stares by the staff, who know your not fifteen because they saw you the previous week buying a child's ticket. Anyway, there are some velvet shorts from Topshop, which I am literally in love with and I decided to wear them with tights and creepers. I bought two tops to go with them, one an army print top and the other a cropped burgundy top. I don't often do outfit posts, so I thought I would go for it today! What do you think?

Pointe shoes

Hey everyone! Firstly, I think I owe an apology for my lack of posts recently, school work is getting on top of me slightly. But I'm coping and all the work has slowed down now- teachers still love to spring surprise homework on us though. But anyway, yesterday I went on a little excursion to London to get my first pair of pointe shoes. I've been doing ballet for nearly three years, and although I'm not particularly good and in quite a low grade, I really enjoy it. When I heard that for the next grade I would be going on pointe, I was so excited. My teacher, gave us all a whole list of dance shops in Covent Garden to go to, because apparently the local dance shop, isn't good enough. In the end, I only needed to go to two of the shops, because I found the perfect pair in the second shop I went to. The person who was fitting the shoes, also told me I needed loads of other things, so that the shoes don't ruin my feet- which I was worried about a little bit. My teacher also told us, that we needed to sleep in our pointe shoes to soften them up, lets just say that sleeping with your feet in what feels like a solid concrete sock, Isn't fun. I cannot wait, to get started on actually doing some pointe work in class, although I've been told that it's really painful. Below are the photo's of my shoes and all the other bits and pieces we had to get with them.

That annoying thing

I love shopping -or more specifically love clothes- so as you can imagine, I have gone on many shopping trips in my time. You know how annoying it is when you go shopping because you desperately need something (like a top to go with your new wetlook leggings), but you cant find anything? Well I've noticed that the only time you literally cannot find anything, is when you're desperate. For example, when we went shopping for a dress for my sisters party and couldn't find anything, but the party was just a week away. Or when I really needed an outfit for a school competition but we didn't spot a thing. What is the reverse of this? When you're going shopping 'just to have a look' and you end up coming home with practically the whole petite section of Topshop (that has happened many a time), including things that you really don't need. Whats your opinion on my theory? While I'm on the subject of clothes... I was on a certain online shopping website (Topshop, as usual) and saw that the coat section is full to the brim with boyfriend style coats. I'm pretty sure this will be the 'in' thing for the winter. Unfortunately, I doubt they will do much to compliment my 5'2 and 1/2 frame. Another coat that I've just become familiar with is the 'coatigan' which is a coat/cardigan, which- if I'm brutally honest- I am not too fond of.

'Its called character building'

Hey everyone! This weekend was an important (which is code for extremely stressful) one for me: it was my assessed Bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition. I'm sure some of you know what I'm talking about but for those who don't, basically,me and the team had to follow a route on a map -without getting lost- and camp overnight (as well as cooking and pitching tents), then we had to wake up, pretty early I may add and do the walking bit again but, luckily, we didn't have to camp for a second night. As you can see from the picture above, it's not exactly a fashion parade, but all about big rucksacks and comfy shoes. Me and my friends had put so much effort into all the preparation we had to do (planning the route and writing route cards) but we actually thought we might fail, due to the fact that we got six miles lost on our practise. Everything went perfectly on our assessed though and we passed, but only after a few tears and tantrums (all on my part). Let's just say, I had a very bad case of 'cabin fever'. Add a heavy rucksack, a supposedly missing food bag and the fact that I don't really get on with the you most of the time anyway, and you will find yourself having to deal with me and the fact that I can sometimes be a bit of a bitch. Lesson learnt though: saying something bitchy will lead to consequences. For me this was stepping in a patch of stinging nettles in flip flops because I didn't have a torch, followed by having to sit in a tent on my own, before finally plucking up the courage to go to the campfire and apologise for just generally being grouchy. Did I mention, that I also got bitten by some sort of insect and I  have two lumps on my back, which have gone down now, but had originally swelled up because of the rubbing from my rucksack and sweat. I now have loads of aching muscles and can confirm I am not looking forward to school tomorrow.  Although after this weekend I can safely say that, all this so called 'character building' is not for me.

Kinda like marmite

Hey guys! So toady I've decided to share my opinion on a pretty controversial topic. No not war or poverty or global warming. Okay, so I lied, it's not controversial at all, it's Justin Beiber. Now I know, about 75% of people groan when ever his name is mentioned, about 15% instantly start giggling, 10% start spurting facts about him,but then there is that 5% who genuinely don't care. I'm going to be honest, I pretty much lie in the 5% bracket. I don't mind if some people want to love him and some want to hate him. I don't care enough to rant either way. But, I've seen in a recent interview that Justin Beiber now wants to be considered an adult and is annoyed at being called 'a teen age hearthrob'. That literally made me do a double take. Does he seriously think that he will appeal to an older audience?  I mean, to be brutally honest, he isn't really that talented, he's just quite a good singer and quite good looking, that's the only reason he's got where he has. Personally I think he's lucky to have the opportunities he's had, considering that there are people out there that are a lot more talented. If I was one of Justin Beibers adoring teenage fans, I would be pretty annoyed at what he said. What do you think?

A bit random

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't done a new post for a while, but I'm still getting back into the swing of things. So, school is good, after a few glitches with my timetable, I'm beginning to settle down. It's weird really, but it already feels like I've been back at school for ages: I suppose I could even say that it seems like I haven't had a holiday at all. I can already tell that this year will be a lot more work, they certainly weren't shy about giving us homework on our first two day's back. And every teacher seems to get a thrill out of telling us how hard the GCSE course's are and how the new mark scheme is making it even harder. Seriously, If I have to sit through one more lecture about controlled assessments, coursework and exams I think I'll just walk out. The main difference that I've noticed, is that the teachers are obsessed with folders. Last year, we had exercise books for every subject, but not this year. Its all 'get a ring binder folder for your work' or 'get a plastic wallet for your work' or even 'get a plastic wallet and a ring binder for your work'. Anyway, school is definitely wearing me out, and now that I have no Big Brother to watch, I'm getting a lot of early nights. Speaking of Big Brother, I was so pleased that Julian won, he absolutely deserved it! How are all of you?

Goodbye Summer...

Hey! Today was the last day of the summer holiday's, which have gone by so quickly! I suppose there's always an element of sadness when the summer holiday's end, but mostly I look forward to getting some structure back in my life; even if that does mean getting up at 6:30 everyday. I also begin to realise that I miss the people I spend my school day with, and even some lessons. I'm definitely looking foward to the moment when I open my timetable and see which teachers I have. This school year will be very different for me, as I am starting GCSE's, which is a little scary but at the same time ridiculously exciting. Mostly it'll be strange seeing the year sevens, looking lost in the corridors, because it seems like only yesterday that I was one of them; the last three years have flown by. The photo shows my new school shoes (black, patent loafers, from Topshop) and my school bag (leopard print rucksack, from Primark). Please comment with any thoughts!

What is that?

Making a fuss: Pam Hogg, who can count Lady Gaga as a big fan of hers, was seen holding Lady Mary's dress for her

Hey everyone! The other day, I came across an article featuring the wedding of Lady Mary Chateris (apparently, we're supposed to know who she is) and my initial reaction was, 'who?'. I've got to say, that was definitely better than my second reaction of 'what is that?', which came when looking at the wedding pictures. I was talking about her wedding dress. Before my eye's was a cut out, see through, frilly, mismatching monstrosity. Of course, designed by none other than Pam Hogg, who has famously dressed Lady Gaga. The article tactically called it 'odd' obviously not wanting to be brutally honest, hideous is the more the word that comes to my mind. I find myself wondering, if she actually wanted her wedding dress to look like that. I'm all for making a statement and being different, but this is going a tad too far. Although, I supposed it ensured that all eyes were on her.  What do you think?

Honey boo-boo slightly sour?

So, I'm not sure if you've heard about Honey boo-boo and her family, but as far as I'm concerned, it's been impossible not to hear. But for the benefit of all those who, may not have had the misfortune to hear about the antics of the six year old beauty queen, I shall explain. Honey boo-boo struck fame on the TV series 'Toddlers and Tiaras' (yes, the one where you watch toddlers wearing make up and competing to be the most beautiful). Although it was apparent that she wouldn't win a beauty pageant, it was the fact that her mum gave her an energy drink of red bull and lemonade and told her to 'shake her booty', that made her stand out. After this, it's only natural that the irresponsible mother and her family should be given their own TV show (of course, who doesn't want to watch that). Having your own reality TV show for spending money and partying is one thing, but having one for being chavy and ignorant is completely another. And now it seems that Honey boo-boo and her mum (June Shannon) are everywhere, a new enthralling story released everyday. Yesterday it was the fact that all the fathers of June's children-bar one- are /were in prison, today it is Honey boo-boos fake tan. I just don't think it's right for them to be getting so much attention, no doubt it's making other people think 'If I dress my daughter inappropriately, say ludicrous things and then speak in a voice no-one can understand, I'll be famous and have my own TV show!'. What do you think?

Shoe hate

Last week, while watching the season finale of TOWIE ( I can't believe its the end of the season already)  a certain pair of shoes- being worn by Jessica Wright- caught my eye. I had to do a double take and when I was sure that Lady Gaga's feet hadn't suddenly appeared at Lucy Mecklenburgh's 21st birthday, I said 'eugh look at her shoes'. They were  like the shoes shown above, only slightly less vile. After doing a little more digging on these horrendous shoes, I've found pictures of various celebrities wearing them. I now find myself wondering whether I am criticising the next big thing, because if so I know I will find myself having to change my opinion. Because, to be honest, I am a bit of a slave to fashion. Fine, if I don't like them, I won't wear them myself, but I'll have to act like I like them when everyone else is wearing them. Fashion, is a little bit like dominoes, once one person starts, more people follow, then more people follow that and eventually we are all walking around wearing ludicrous things, just because everyone else is doing it. Until, we browse through our facebook pages in a few years time and laugh at how awful we all looked. And lets be honest, if these shoes are the next big thing, we will definitely look back and say 'what were we thinking?'. Whats your opinion on the shoes?

'Out of stock'

Yesterday- being the self confessed online shopaholic that I am- I had my usual browse through the 'TopShop' website. While looking intently at the petite dresses, a certain dress caught my eye. It was a metallic, sparkly,silver, t-shirt dress, and instantly I could see myself in it. It was one of those moments, when you find a peice of clothing that you love and you know you will be spending the rest of the season wearing it. So I did what anyone would do and clicked on it, so that I could zoom in and see what it looked like on the dummy. After spending a few minutes looking at the dress from all different angles, I focused my attention on the sizes. I braced myself, as I pressed the drop down menu and found size six. Looking across, I saw the three words we all dread. 'Out of stock'. Its occasions like this, that I find myself sighing in fustration and angrily closing down the computer, thinking, 'why out of all the sizes does it have to be mine that's out of stock?'. And then thinking 'If only I'd looked yesterday, I may have been able to get my size'. Then comes the anxious waiting and sheer desperation that inevitably follows everytime, wondering 'will it come back into stock'. Has this ever happened to you?

Everyone's talking about it...

Scanning through the pages of Daily Mail online, one story seems to be frequently popping up, yesterday the same story was mentioned on daytime TV and on the radio. And a few days ago it was released in all it's glory on the front page of 'The Sun' newspaper, leading to predictable outrage and tensions. Nope, I'm not talking about Lauren Goodger getting cut from TOWIE. I am of course referring to Prince Harry's most recent tabloid scandal the 'getting drunk in Vegas, playing strip pool and letting someone take a photo of you completely naked' incident (that every prince needs to experience once in his life). First I just want to say, I'm not sure why it's surprised everyone, Prince Harry is constantly misbehaving, it's not like it's a first. And I also don't understand why everyone is surprised at 'The Sun' for publishing the photo's of him, they just want to sell newspapers. Although it has shown the royal family up, I really don't see that much of an issue. I mean, do we really want a ridiculously boring royal family? I know I don't. Prince Harry hasn't done anything wrong, neither has the person who sold or published the pictures. I blame the body guards with Harry at the time, who knew full well pictures were being taken. Rumour is that £125 million is being spent on security for Harry per year which, considering they couldn't stop this, is absurd. What do you think?

There goes all the drama

Hi everyone! Now I'm sure you're all wondering why I haven't yet posted about my favourite reality TV show, Celebrity Big Brother. Well, your wait is over! So far I would describe this round of celebrities as, false and bitchy. Most of the young girls are trying to flirt with the boys at every available moment, but then insisting 'I'm seeing someone that I really, really like'. Of course Jasmine Lennard (who allegedly had an affair with Simon Cowell) didn't quite fit in with the crew and told the girls-in no uncertain terms- what she thought of them. It was inevitable that she would be walking out of the doors at lasts nights eviction and although I know that her nasty ways had to go, part of me wanted her to stay. Because, let's face it, we all like a bit of drama and now that she's gone, we might actually see the house in harmony. I've got to admit, the person that has surprised me most so far is journalist Samantha Brick. I'm sure you all remember her article ( for The Daily Mail), where she stated 'women are jealous of me because I'm beautiful', but I think we all judged her too soon. She seem quite popular in the house, which suggests that she's not the person we all thought she was. Please comment with your thoughts and opinions!
Jasmine Lennard is evicted from the Big Brother House at Elstree Studios on August 22, 2012 in Borehamwood, England.

Look who I saw!

Hey everyone! Those of you who are familiar with my blog, will know about my love of  reality TV. But for those who don't, I basically spend my time watching the trashiest programs on television. 'Made in Chelsea' is of course included in this list: Its a must watch if you love fake fights and obviously set up situations. So as a 'Made in Chelsea' lover, you can imagine my reaction when I saw Rosie Fortescue, casually collecting her suitcase at Gatwick Airport. After stalking her for a few minutes, me and my friends had to consider the un-spoken rule. The rule I'm talking about, is the one we have with all very famous celebrities, the 'dont talk to me, draw attention to me or come up to me' rule. But, after umming and ahhing for a while, I thought, why not? So I boldly walked up to her, saying 'Rosie, could I have a photo with you please'. My friends were all standing by, phones at the ready, and the photo above is the result. Strange though, the buzz you can get from seeing a minor celebrity, don't you think?

While on Holiday in Corfu, I visited my first ever water park. "First ever water park!?" I hear you cry, I suppose you could say that until now I have never lived. When we arrived, we were all given a bright yellow wrist band:which I'm still wearing now, I may add. Straight away, we headed towards the slides, first going on the more tame ones, to prepare ourselves for 'The Extreme game'.

The picture above, is of the two slides called 'The Extreme Game', practically vertical drops, these slides are not for the faint hearted. Fortunately- the adrenaline seeker that I am- I had no qualms with throwing myself down a slide that allows you to free fall, before hitting the bottom and getting thousands of water droplets sprayed in your face. I also, decided to give a few of the tubes a go, but after nearly drowning in one and getting momentarily stuck in another, I decided that tubes aren't really for me. I definitely learnt something from my time queueing up for the slides: very few people acknowledge that you are not supposed to queue jump. In fact, there was a showdown between my friend and a man who was trying to sidle his way to the front of the queue, in which there was a slight shouting match ( cue the staring and dirty looks). But at least after this day out, I no longer have to guess what it is like to be hit in the face in a wave pool or go down a pitch black tube in a dingy.  What about you, do you love the thrill of a good water slide or do you prefer the lazy river?

"Didn't you ever want to be a part of something different? Something special?"

A couple of weeks ago I saw the TV advert for Step Up 4, and I'll admit I got rather excited ( I'm a bit of a sucker for dance films). So a few nights ago, me and my sister happily took our seats in the cinema, ready for what we expected to be an action packed film. I remember going to see Step Up 2 when I was quite young, it was edgy, full of gangsters and packed with words that I'd never heard before and have never heard since. The dancing was amazing and the story line was good. Unfortunately, Step Up 4 cannot be compared to its predecessors , in fact the film that I closely compare it to is high school musical. I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that ( we all love a cheesy, feel good film once in a while), but what happened to the rebellious Step Up? Although the film was quite weak, the dancing never failed to astound me (even though I'd seen it all before)  and not going to lie, if there does happen to be a Step Up 5, you might just see me happily taking my seat in the cinema once again.

Hi everyone! Sorry for my long absence from the blogging world! I can safely say that after my holiday to Corfu, I am a few waterslides, beaches and Greek salads better off. The photo above shows the view from my balcony, where I spent many peaceful hours reading or not so peacful hours raving to music that I know I shouldnt like but I do.  The photo below shows me at one of Corfu's many beaches (our favourite one), walking along to the end of the pier: Its odd how much of a rush you can get from jumping into the sea and feeling the salt water sting your eyes. The mountains you can see in the picture, are actually Albania which is only seperated from Corfu by about 1 mile of sea. While I was away I heard a very amusing story about illegal Albanian immegrants, travelling to Corfu on inflatables; the Greeks, however, do not find this so funny.

I came home to the end of the olympics and the final of big brother. Which I conveniently got home just in time for. Of course, it is not really the end of either of these things as the Paralympics starts soon and celebrity big brother starts on Wednesday. Expect a few more posts about my holiday!

A bit of Big Brother

Hi everyone! I'll apologise in advance to those who don't spend their time watching crappy reality TV as, I don't think this post will be of much interest to you. But to those who did spend last night glued to their seats, and gasping at the quarter final of Big Brother (like me) this post will be much appreciated. So, Becky's out! I'll say it definitely came as quite a shock; I was sure it would be Ashleigh and her mean little ways leaving the house. But as usual, I seem to have a difference in opinion to the rest of Great Britain. Yes Becky was a rude, ignorant, gossip, who spent most of the time telling the other housemates that they were 'ridiculous', but at least we didn't have to watch her bossing around her supposed 'love interest'. Yes I am referring to Ashleigh. Don't even get me started on Becky's horrific interview that followed the nasty reception she got, when leaving the house. Since she actually got voted in by the public, I sort of expected her to be in the final. I also was pretty sure that Connor would win (me and a few others it seems: Connor is ironically standing in front of a sign saying 'Connor to win!') and maybe he would've done, if he hadn't decided to take £50,000 on condition that he left the house immediately. Of course, him and Luke S both wanted the money, but in the end it came down to who would win the task. What was this task, I hear you cry? Basically, in front of the them were red buzzers and a timer was counting up to £50,000 , the person who hit their buzzer first got the money, and the loser got a guaranteed place in the final. For a moment I thought neither of them would press their buzzers, then I realised that they both thought they wouldn't win, so what was the point in a place in the final? I've got to admit I am ridiculously glad Connor got that money instead of Luke because although I'm not Connors biggest fan, Luke really is up himself. Coming out with the line 'Guys want to be me, girls want to be with me' does tend to put people off you slightly. The reaction from the other housemates was ... well I'm shocked that they didn't realise there would be some sort of twist with the money: year in, year out, the winner never gets the full £100,000. Last night made me think, would I have taken the money and gone or seen it through to the final? What would you have done?

Olympic fashion

London 2012 Olympics seem so be all that's on every ones minds:watching the races, travelling to the Olympic village and just generally catching 'Olympic fever'. But who would have thought London 2012 would become a fashion statement. Of course, sporty shoes such as, Vans, Converse and Vintage Nike high tops have 'blown up' this year, basically everyone I know owns at least one pair of the previous three. So I suppose it was inevitable that a sporty summer trend would follow. Slouchy sweaters, sporty dresses and running shorts can be seen everywhere: from catwalk to high street. Quite a risky trend, as I'm sure there are some who would be hesitant to wear an 'I Love Sports' sweater and a baseball cap, but for others its the perfect way to get involved in London 2012 (without doing any sports)! I personally made a nod toward the trend a few months ago, on finding a pair of red running shorts in Superdry (which can be seen in the first picture). I either wear these with a denim bralet (Topshop) or a studded top (also Topshop). As well as this, I have my good old navy Converses which I wore all through the winter and will continue to wear throughout the summer. What's your opinion on this trend?

" OMG is that Kate Middleton?! "

Yesterday afternoon, the sun made an appearance, so I decided to make the most of it. Armed with the July issue of Marie Claire, I took to my garden to soak up some rays. After reading the fashion section and scanning through an article on Whitney Houston, I came to an article with the headline 'The Princess Diaries'. Behind the title was a picture of Kate and Pippa, so I settled down for a few minutes of royal gossip ( I do love a bit of goss)! But, oh how I couldnt have been more wrong! The article was actually about the lows and highs of being a Kate Middleton look alike and the difficult lives they lead: trying to keep up with Kate's newest hairstyle, dress or weight. As it turns out, since the royal wedding Kate look alikes have been popping up left right and centre: on one agencies books there are 90 Kate look alikes, so it's tricky to nab the topspot.  In the photo of the supposed Kate look alikes only one or two actually could be likened to her. It seems almost cruel that these girls think they are in with a chance at becoming 'the best Kate' when the only similiar feature they share with her is hair colour. The old favourite 'Kate' has now been replaced, she said : 'The problem is I'm getting fatter and Kate's getting thinner!', I felt so sorry for her, she quit her job and everything, See how bad it is! And the worst part? People are getting taken in by it, when seen in the street the look alikes are flocked by followers taking pictures on their phones, it's just ridiculous! At first I wasn't sure what to make of the whole thing, but now I hate it. It's awful that girls are getting paid just for looking like someone else. It must be so easy for them to forget who they are, because they're so caught up in pretending to be someone else. What do you think?

Hobbits, horses and horrific noise

On Friday night, I tuned in to BBC1 all set to watch The Olympic Ceremony(even though it clashed with big brother). So there I was sat down in front of the TV when before my eyes appeared a replica of 'The Shires' from The Lord of the Rings on the stage. We are English, not hobbits. I had absolutley no idea what the whole 'olden day village' and horse and carts were about, until my dad pointed out that they were showing Britian through the ages: cue the 'oh yeaahhhh'. I'll admit that the ceremony did teach me one thing, a whole new angle on Brunel, who they made out to be some sort of evil dictator. And then the drums started playing and I actually wanted to put some ear plugs in, it was that loud and noisey. Okay, so i'll admit I couldnt help but feel a little bit proud when the olympic rings, made out of flames, joined each other in the air, but then supposed NHS workers started dancing and an inflatable Voldemort appeared on stage. From there it went even more downhill (if thats possible) , they showed a film of Daniel Craig and the Queen getting into a helicopter and then they supposedly jumped out at the stadium. Of course most people realised that an 86 year old woman could not jump out of a helicopter, with the exception of the few who had their facebook status' as 'The Queen is so amazing, cant believe she jumped out of the helicopter!'. Great, now our olympics will be a worldwide laughing stock- but I suppose they didnt think of that when they decided that two hundred Mary Poppins should fly down from the sky, with glowing umbrellas.

Me: A girl with a lot of opinions

Hi everyone! As this is my first post and this is the first blog i've ever made, I suppose you could say i'm new to the blogging scene. The question that i'm sure your'e wanting to know the answer to is, why are you blogging? Well, throughout a day, I would say I bite my tongue several times to stop my opinions from flying out at the wrong moments. Because whenever I have an outburst, I end up telling someone why their opinions are completely wrong and mine right, but of course 'opinions aren't fact'. I have an opinion on most things, some of it may seem  pretty mindless stuff: like who I think should be evicted from big brother, or whether I like what Lydia Bright was wearing on the latest episode of TOWIE. But sometimes I come out with a controversial statement about war or poverty. So, my blog will be a way of telling the world my opinions! Please keep looking to see my latest post!
