Mail & Fail

Hello! It's been WAY to long, since my last post, but yeah, you guessed it exams and coursework have taken up all my time. I can't wait for the summer to start, then I can blog all I want! First I shall start will my incoming and outgoing mail.


One: A lovely first letter from Caitlin. I love love love the pretty drawings on the front of the envelope.
Two: A beautiful postcard from France.
Three & Four: I won Megan's little give away. The prizes were a lovely print of the Eiffel Tower. Which is hanging very proudly on my wall. And three beautifully made atlas envelopes.


One: A reply to Megan in a brown paper envelope.
Two: A reply to Caitlin. The envelope is made from an French children's book.
Three: My first letter to Gemma, my first pen pal who actually live in England!
Four: My stuffed envelope for Mike Me At Mikes, Envelope Project.

Oh and yes I know I failed the 30 day challenge. Do I care? Not really. It was incredibly boring, and after the second day I realised what a bad idea is was. But I have learnt a lesson from this. I am never, ever going to do something like that again. Never.

Once again I am terribly sorry for my lack of posts. But it should get better soon, I only have three exams left for this school year. WOOOOOOOO.

Brown Paper & String.

Hello! I have been meaning to post this for AGES, and just haven't got round to it. But without further delay here is the incoming and outgoing mail!

One: A letter to Nicola.
Two & Three: A couple of small presents for Nicola, as it is her birthday soon. And on the back of the card there is possibly the biggest sticker known to man. Cra-zay.
Four: A postcrossing card to America.

One & Two: Both letters are from Nicola. (We swap a lot of mail, because we live so close compared to all of my other pen pals. :P )
Three: A postcard from America.
Four:A postcard from Quebec.

30 Day Challenge- Day 03

Bonjour my little buttercups! Today's topic for the 30 day challenge is 'Your Favourite Television Programme'. I don't watch an awful lot of tv, so this isn't hard at all. It is a E4 show called Misfits.

I'm not to sure how to describe it so here is some information I stole from wikipedia about it.
'Misfits is a British live-action superhero comedy-drama about a group of young offenders forced to work in a community service programme, where they become imbued with supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm.----The programme can be classed as a teen drama, because its main characters share at least superficial commonality with those seen in Skins and several of John Hughes' films, notably The Breakfast Club----Misfits follows five teenagers on community service who get struck by lightning and are given special powers. Kelly (Lauren Socha) becomes telepathic, Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) can rewind time, Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin, and Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible. Seemingly left unaffected is smart alec Nathan (Robert Sheehan), although his power is revealed in the sixth episode.'

It's a bloody good programme, so if you ever get the chance to watch it go for it! I also like Skins and the Inbetweeners. Although the last series of Skins wasn't very good in my opinion. :/

30 Day Challenge- Day 02

Hello! It's day two of the 30 day challenge and the topic is Your Favourite Movie. This is also a really tricky question so I'll just list my favourites(In no particular order).

The Hangover
(500) Day's of Summer
Romeo& Juliet
All the Harry Potters! (I once watched all the Harry Potters out so far non-stop. It finished at something ridiculous like 5 o'clock in the morning. Needless to say, I was a zombie the next day.)
Both Narnia's.
Both the Bridget Jones films.
Thunderpants (legendary film, love it.)
The Notebook
Pretty In Pink
The Breakfast Club

And that's all I can think of the moment. But I'm sure there is about 300 more. Haha.
Don't forget to tell me your favourite film! Speak to you soon!

Day 01- Your Favourite Song
I'm pretty sure they decided to start with the hardest one first. I go through phases, and there isn't one particular song that stands out for me. So I'll just say the one song that I can't stop singing. It is Dance Anthem of the 80's by Regina Spektor. It's a lovely cheerful song, from one of my favourite artists.

I love the video. It's just so fun and her, and not any fancy camera tricks or a bucket load of make up on. And of course her beautiful voice! I would do anything to sing like her.

I can't wait to read your replies!
