The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Last Sunday I met a couple of my best buddies to see the new film adaptation of the book, which I haven't read but am now dying to, 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'. We all came out with excited grins on our faces and we all fell in love with the film instantly. Of course, if you have read the book and weren't a fan of the film it is very understandable, as I have heard from a few people that a lot of the plot and characters are changed. However, I haven't read it therefore I shall carry on praising the film.

The story may seem a little cliché in some respects, but the majority of 'coming of age films' include common themes - school, friends, parties, drugs, love, depression, death etc. All these are heavily featured, but I thought it was done well and they didn't make it embarrassing or cringey at all. The cast was pretty epic, but I am biased because Ezra Miller is my spirit animal and Paul Rudd as an English teacher is just too lovable.

One thing that also made my love it was the constant mention of one of my favourite songs of all time, Asleep by The Smiths. I don't have much else to say on that topic, but it was worth a mention. If you haven't heard that song then please. Listen now.

It made me laugh and cry. It made me want to be in their friendship group. It made me happy and I definitely recommend that everyone should see it.

Sixteen Candles

Yes, I am now sixteen years of age. It's madness. Don't worry, I am not more mature or anything, so there will still be plenty of things like this on here...

Now for the best part. 
Here's my birthday present haul!

Fun fact - when I was in New York with my family as a wee girly, we were stopped by an old man with a camera who said we were really cool and he photographed us then and there. That man was Bill Cunningham. BIBLE.

This beanie purchase was inspired by the beauts man that is A$AP Rocky.
Second fun fact of the day - his birthday is also on the 3rd of October.
Can you say twinzies?

But let's not kid ourselves, I kinda rock it better than A$AP.

Definitely the best bunch of birthday presents I have received yet and I d a fabbity day. Once I have watched 'Qui ĂȘtes-vous Polly Magoo?' and 'Bill Cunningham New York' I will post my Milo head review, and I am so hyped to wear my new clothes! Pictures will be posted soonish. Thanks to everyone who made my sixteenth an epic day and I love y'all.

Monday Night in Soho...Yo.

Last night my father and I ventured to Soho to meet our good friend Dinos (Chapman - name dropping and wot) to watch him get his latest tattoo by our other good friend, Thomas (Hooper - holla). The twist in the plot was that Dinos wasn't to see the tattoo at any point until it was complete. He's fearless, I tell you. Obviously, if you could trust anyone to tattoo you without seeing what they were planning, it would be Thomas, and saying that it went well would be the understatement of the century. It's one of the most epic and awesome tattoos I have seen Thomas do and I know that Dinos was chuffed with it. Here are some pictures from the gnarly evening.

By the way, his tattoo says 'I'm with this idiot'. LOLZ.
