That Girl in the Hat

Or how I learnt to stop worrying and love odd socks.





~September 9th~ Music meme Days 3, 4 and 5
 Dear blog-chan,

I'm really not good at this whole 'daily entry' thing, huh?

Oh well, to the meme!

Day 3 : A Song That Makes You Happy

This is easy. It's 'Our Time Has Come' from the credits of Cats Don't Dance. I really like this because it's just so cheerful and bright :D :

 Day 4 : A Song That Makes You Sad

'Losing You' by Randy Newman. I was not in a good emotional state after seeing Toy Story 3, and hearing this on the soundtrack had me blubbing like an idiot. :

Day 5 : A Song That Reminds You Of Someone 

This was a hard one. But I think I'm gonna choose 'The Show' by Lenka because it reminds me muchly of my bestest friend, Melissa ^^ It's cute, kinda quiet, a little silly but all round cheerful :D :

So there you go :D I'll see you soon-ish, promise.

Bye bye bloggy,


~September 7th~ The Ditz is on Cloud Nine
 Dear blog-chan,

My first day of college has come and gone, and frankly it's not as mind blowingly exciting as I thought it was going to be :/

Which is a disappointment.

I have met a few nice people and caught up with some old friends :)

There's a half day tomorrow :) Which means I can go visit my Nana and crack on with my sewing 

I'd honestly write more, but I don't really have much to say and I'm really tired *yawn*.

I'll write more tomorrow, I promise. I'll have something clever to say, or pictures or something.

And I'm already behind on my music meme : / 

Night night blog-chan,


~September 5th~ Music Meme Days 1 and 2
Dear Blog-chan,

Being the total idiot that I am, I forgot to do my entry for the music meme, so here's yesterday and today's:

Day 1 : Your Favourite Song

After much debating, I decided to pick Rob Thomas' 'Little Wonders' from Meet the Robinsons. I say debating, because I really don't have a favourite song. I switch between styles of music so often I never have one that sticks around. However, Meet the Robinsons is one of my favourite films and this one of my most frequently played songs on You Tube so I decided to pick this one :)

Day 2 : Your Least Favourite Song

Now this was soooo much easier to pick. As a general note, I don't like hip-hop, rap, r 'n b or anything in that sort of family of music but my brother LOVES it. And the most frequent song blasting from his room; 'OMG' by Usher :


I also really enjoyed Todd In The Shadow's review/bash of this song found here: 

See you tomorrow! ^^

~August 29th~ The One that Got Away...
 Clever Titles, that is.

So hey there blog,

I really should update you more often. This is gonna be one HUGE post, I'm afraid. I've been a busy girl this week :D

Last week, I went with my awesome aunty Paula to go see Shakespeare's 'The Tempest':

Which was awesome :D The prince in it was cuuuuuute <3 Curse you, men in tights and your distracting nature!

ANYWAY...  the big event of this week, was of course, results day. I got 4 A's, 4 B's  and 4 C's all together, which apparently was good. I didn't think so, but my stupid competitive nature had me comparing and belittling myself to my friend's much better grades.

(I'd show you a pic but I've got nothing appropriate, really.)

So that night, I went out with my friends to the local Italian, Frankie and Bennie's for a food. I didn't really enjoy myself, between me and you blog-chan. The food was okay, every other conversation I could hear was about their boyfriends (which I find incredibly rude, as it's basically rubbing it in the face of single people). That and I felt over dressed:

(There is a picture, but I haven't got it)

But on a brighter note, I did a heck of a lot of money from the family (Thank you, humongous family! :D) and get this. This super, yummy results cake:

Would you believe it was made a Weight Watchers member? :D

And also, DUCKS:

A pencil sharpener and 3 rubbers, how awesome are they?

And we finally got to go on my Mammy's birthday balloon trip! It was AMAZING! 

I don't have any pictures on this computer but once again, I'll get to work on it.

Coming soon: Two new lolita skirts and a trip to the College to meet my fellow French students :D 

I'll see you soon blog-chan,



~August 22nd~ 3., 7. and 29.
 Missions Accomplished :D

3. Go for at least one picnic 

Shannon's sandwich was bigger than her face! It was awesome :D

29. Bubble Day!

And 7. Frisbee!

That day was so fun! 

I love these guys :D

~August 19th~ Ma-Maw's Blanket

Yo blog, 

Sup maaaaaaan? ~ 

Yeah too white to do that. I'll never do that again. Promise.

So yeah. Still need to do those bucket list entries, I'll get onto that. Eventually. But still 3/4 of the way through the holidays and I've done half of the list :D Yaaaayness

So last week, I went on quite a few outings: A trip to Swansea, a picnic/bubble day at the Gnoll and a family trip to Cardiff.

Swansea was so weird. Well, having weird friends and being weird yourself probably didn't help. I got to go to the Disney shop to hand in a cv, but they weren't hiring yet, but I won't give up! I also got a 'shit bag' from Claire's:

(Insert picture here, you lazy bum!)

Which had lots of ugly things but I LOVED this necklace:         


But we did get these awesome hats, which I didn't keep:


And I got these fat quarters, intending to make notebook covers, but all those notebooks would have been expensive and the Peter Rabbit print was a failed pencil case which will live in my sewing box for my chalks and whatnot.


The Picnic was awesomeness!! The weather wasn't but I still got to mess around with my good friends, Shannon and Heather. We ate swirly thingys, played with bubbles and talked about Shannon's career as a Pirate Hooker.

Don't ask.

I also made my newest best friend. Mamaw's blanket.


It also doubles as an awesome cape:


And as a tribute to the awesome Voldemort, Joe Walker:


Totally Awesome. Yes?


And Cardiff. Cardiff was an emergency!!

The volume button on my laptop keyboard had come off!!!


But the man in the Apple Shop was very nice and replace the whole inside casing which was very nice of them!! 



And last but not least, this week I went to town and got a few books to read (A fashion history book, a book about Audrey Hepburn's wardrobe and Murder on the Orient express) and my back to college stationary:


Gaaaaaah. So many pictures and blog entries to do!! I should really get to work.

See you later, blog-chan


~August 10th~ ''Do they strip in the end or something?''
Hi blog-chan,

So much to say, so little will to say it.

I'm not kidding . i'm complaining about being bored and yet my bucket list is sitting untouched. It's not that I don't want to do them it's just they either require money or more people, of which I'm a bit scarce at the moment.

Things to Post today:

On the lolita front - I have a petticoat at last! It's not very pretty to look at so there isn't a picture :P 

However, here's the before and after shots of it in action:

     AND THEN...     

Nice huh? I thought so ^^ But, that particular skirt is a bit short due to a cutting mishap so having to keep pulling the petti up to stop it from showing is a bit annoying. Oh well, longer skirt next time :D

I also bought this straw bag in a sale after lusting after country lolita's straw handbags:

Problem - I bought lace to sew around the rounded edge and it won't curve nicely, so I'm going to have to think of a crafty way around this. 

On the cookery front - I made an apple crumble! 

IT. WAS. DISGUSTING!!!!! I had to use this diet sugar thingy and it tastes sooooo bad if you use too much. It took two cups of tea to wash the taste out of my mouth. Not fun times D:

Also cookery related, I'm getting death threats for not bringing a cheesecake to Weight Watchers.

... It's weird. 

I also finally had the first Wii-Fest with my buddies in a long LONG time. We christened Dance on Broadway onto our games list. There are videos. I'll put them in a separate post because photobucket might have a heart attack. 

Nearly there.... I've been shopping for new college clothes :D Again, separate post because it's a bucket list entry :P 

OH YEAH. I remembered. I'm gonna be pulling out of A Level Maths, for a good reason. I know I've worked so hard for this GCSE result and I've nearly stressed myself out over it a few times. And A Level Maths is much, much harder. So I'd have to be working even harder continuously throughout the year and risk stressing and obsessing over it, affecting the other subjects.

           So instead, I'll be doing Media Studies with my awesome aunty Paula. It's gonna be so cool ^^ I can pick my own topics and pay her in snacks :D And that's just so awesome!! I'm excited!!

Tomorrow, I'll off on another outing :D which is cool because I don't get out of the house. I'll be going with buddies in the school year below me:

These guys.

So we're either going picnicing  (Yaaaaaaaaay! Another bucket list entry!) or we're going to Swansea if the weather's sucky. So fun times either way.

Right then, that's the 'What's going on' entry done. Time to do the bucket list entries.

See you pretty soon,


~July 25th~ 10. Trip to Cardiff
 Mission Accomplished.

20th July 2010 - Really did not enjoy myself this time around. A trip like this needs to be really well planned.
