Paris (+ Jump in the Pool) on Jools Holland!

Oh man I just found this. Gaahhh I love this song!!!! Ed ftw (although he’s quit twitter which I’m not happy about).



So, I dyed my hair red! This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the fact that I watched Easy A the night before…

(Genuinely, it didn’t. But I will take any opportunity to link back to that clip!)
Might post a photo tomorrow if I can find an angle where it doesn’t look bad.

Styling it out.

ok, so I got into York, yay! Very excited. My nervousness has sort of ebbed away like a puddle, but I’m sure I’ll be hit by another tidal wave as the time gets nearer. It does mean that I have a lot of stuff to buy, the usual I guess- pans, sheets, tupperware, those little poofy things you use for showering… But I’ve also had to set aside a load of money for clothes. Anyone who has seen me about at 6th form can see that I’ve basically stuck to a uniform of tees and jeans for the majority of the two years. This is partly because it’s comfy, partly because I’m usually broke (after spending all my money on music) and partly because I couldn’t be bothered.

So now my jeans have all decided to start springing holes everywhere, giving me an excuse to start from scratch. Which is fine! I put together a load of images to try and get an idea of what stuff I needed to get and budget everything- I think it really seems to shout ‘dapper, with a hint of hobo’. It’s an amalgamation of all the little stylish touches that interest me, from JGL’s adorable cardigan in (500) Days of Summer to Graham Coxon’s pretty grungy look by way of geeky fashion. Managed to FINALLY track down a decent army jacket in a vintage shop in Newark today, can’t wait to try it out (very much inspired by Lindsay in Freaks and Geeks!).



Under the Westway

Listen to this song. It’s the new single, ‘Under the Westway’, by blur, and I just love it. It’s odd hearing their music brought right up to 2012- especially for me, as I sort of missed them in their heyday (I was about 1 when they achieved their first UK number 1 with ‘Country House’!). When Damon sings of people ‘fallen under the spell of the distance between us when we communicate’… it just resonates with me (though the irony of posting this on a blog is not lost on me!). The lyrics are beautiful.

‘Paradise not lost, it’s in you’ 🙂
