Piercing, Music and Musings

Okay, so you know how drug addicts are always just looking forward to their next hit? That's how I feel with ear piercings. Every time I get one, I am just thinking about the next part of my ear I can get done. Alas, ears are small and there are only so many you can get, and I am SO not the kind of girl who can work a nose piercing (like mah homeguuurrl Holly) but I never really mentioned my piercings on the blog so I thought I owed you these pictures (plus nothing very fashionable is happening in my life at the mo, unless Physics tests are 'so hot right now')...

Jealousy x10000!

Now, onto music. As you know, I am not really good at keeping up to date with music, for example I am still not sure I have ever heard any 'Rizzle Kicks' songs, but I am sure that they are both extremely good looking. Back to business, though. Here are a few tunes I have been into at the moment -

(Okay, let's be honest, when am I ever not into The Weeknd? Never ever ever ever.)

Now for the musings... This is a belated 'New Year's' kind of thing, but just go with it.

New Year's resolutions are just not my thing. They make me stressed and I am naturally quite a determined person, much to the 'delight' of my parents on some occasions, so I usually just don't make any. However, this year is a little different. My first New Year's resolution is to post more on my blog and Lookbook, even if the posts are small or completely irrelevant. They'll be up at least once a week, so please persist with me, I really do love everyone who reads this blog! (On that note, if you do read my ludicrous ramblings I would actually adore it if you sent me a message via commenting on my posts, or Facebook and Lookbook! Don't be afraid, it makes you cool, not a creeper!). Another one of my resolutions is to do more D.I.Y in my spare time. Last summer, I had my little shorts customizing business which was super fun, and actually put money towards buying a new camera! As I have mentioned before, I am a devoted reader of 'Rookie Mag', and there are always creative and quirky D.I.Y projects on there. Luckily, for Christmas I received a glue gun, so this will come in handy when I am manically bejeweling every item of clothing I own. First on the list - bejeweled tights, glitter shoes and a detachable collar. As y'all know, I am a film junkie, so I watch oodles of films all the time, but this year I am going to start watching more foreign films. Subtitles sometimes annoy me, but I will seem more cultured and arty, so whatevs... (kidding). Lastly, I want to start being more creative with my look. There's obviously only so much I can do, because I am not going to get some edgy haircut or buy a whole new alternative wardrobe, but it is more to do with styles I wear, hair do's and make up. This means no more pyjama/ponytail/bare face ruts! Bien-sur, this is not going to be a rule for every day (what with the school schedule and all) but on the weekends I am going to make more of an effort. Creativity will also mean getting more inspiration, like from Rookie Mag, and hopefully I will be able to find some more inspirational blogs this year. Getting inspiration from art galleries is also something I love, so I will try to go to more exhibitions and shows, which starts when I go to see Lucian Freud in February. FINALLY, vintage shopping is something that I do not participate in often enough, and it is phenomenal how much cheaper it can be for something a bajillion times cooler than on the high street, so that starts soon, most likely with Holly!
