Golden Globeseses Best and Worst Dressed

I knows what I likes and what I don’ts likes is certain dresses.

Like this one:

Image

A little bit too glitter chicken chic, for me.

Image

Mmmm… looks a little like a loose knit dress. The cut outs at the sides and back joining up in the middle aren’t super flattering, either.

Image

Ooooh… You kinda look like a medieval knight. If they worse dresses…

Image

I like the colour, I like the backlessness, but there’s something hanging off her bum and it looks like a cape for your bum, and I’m pretty sure that’s not a thing… I thought a train was supposed to be attached to the dress.

Image

I love you Anne Hathaway, I adore you, you’re one of my favourites, but I really don’t love this dress. She looks fantastic as usual, but the separate bodice from the skirt I find hard to love.

Image

Whooh. Yeah. The dress looks like a towel with half a belt wrapped around it, the shoes clash and she looks like she put literally no effort into the hair.

Image

You look like a friggin loofah.

Image

Obvious reasons, it’s not a glamorous dress, but I commend her for having the balls to go onto the red carpet in something so unexpected. Gowanyagoodting!

Image

All around, there’s just too much going on.

Image

I went out with a friend before to a bar/club and she wore something extremely similar to this. She was 18.

Image

It’s not the 80’s, and it’s a famous awards ceremony. Come on.

Image

We love you, Debra, we do, but darling, the dress does nothing for you.

Okay, enough bitching, time for best dressed.

Image

I am a huge fan of mermaid styles, but usually hate the ruched effect, however, this dress is sooo pretty!

Image

Jennifer Lawrence never fails at anything. Ever. Damn you and your waistline. I drooled at the sight of this dress.

Image

Usually, I would be a fan of something so low on the chest, but I still adore it, it’s so cute and sweet. But maybe next time, without the dark make-up, I don’t feel it fits.

Image

I. love. this. dress. I don’t care if she looks like a wallpaper cake, it’s beautiful and so gorgeously strange with hints of old fashioned regal wear.

Image

This dress is all girly, it a glittery black that pulls in at the waist and makes any onlookers jealous of the waist to hip ratio.

Image

Aside from the fact that it makes her look a little short, this is super pretty, gives Sarah a good bust and waist and oh my god can you believe she’s 22?

Image

As the uber-milf in Modern Family, it is simply expected that Sofia turn up looking stunning and she did not disappoint. It’s shiny, hippy and busty.

There were other dresses that I was very divided on, I adored some parts and abhorred others, but that’s about it for my judgmental and opinionated take on dresses. Yay! Also love this picture:

Sitting At Home Doing Nothing

So yes, I’m home, pretending to study for Christmas exams which are fun and not at all a reason to throw a liter of vodka down my throat.

I have not updated since before Hallowe’en… I think. So, that was good fun. Full of friends, meringue ghosts, and spilling rum all over my debs dress.

I also have a terrible memory, so I can’t actually remember what has happened (if anything) in between then and now.

There was Rainbow Week…

NO

And I had something else on my mind there but I can’t remember what it is. I would also like to point out that when I say I can’t remember things, it’s not because I can’t be arsed but because my brain is a spaztics brain. XD

And now there’s Christmas. Yaaaaaay.

I love Christmas. I do. It’s a time of yay-ness and food. But the preparation is not so good. I am currently in the middle of getting homemade Christmas presents ready which is not fun.

Every year I imagine Christmas to be a happy time full of not giving a shit and being around people you want to be around. I have yet to experience a happy Christmas. It always ends the same with family memebers who will remain nameless complaining and being terrible human beings the same that they are every day of the year. Also counted as the fact they don’t want me leaving the house to be with people I actually want to be with, rather than being forced into unwanted interactions with not-immediate family members that are awkward and drag on forever. Hopefully when I move out and am able to have Christmas my way it’ll be better, but again, I hold out no hope for this year.

Wow…

That turned out to be a lot more passive-aggressive and depressing than I had originally imagined…

Oops! XD

Now children… why don’t we learn something new today? Hmm?

I Hate Macs

Okay, so I haven’t blogged in a good few months… but it wasn’t my fault! I was busy doing extremely important things. Like Playing the new Sims 3 expansion. My current couple are a fairy and a witch. The fairy is  a magician and the witch is an alchemist/gardener… what can I say, I don’t play by the rules.

I don’t have the Plants VS Zombies extra features. 😦 Never played it either, but watched this guyplay it! He’s my favourite Let’s Play-er. XD Here’s a picture of me playing the Sims:

Image
So what else has happened to me to stop me from blogging? College. College has happened. Schedule’s not too messed up. Had a bit of trouble moving and shifting around Labs that the lecturers didn’t want to keep.
ALSO: Became Health and Safety Officer of OutinUL! Go me! Here’s a picture of me being Health and Safety Officer and in College…
Image
I’ve been waiting… about a year or so to get on the committee so I don’t feel left out, and now I’m in there… deep deep in there… in so deep I have to kill you now.
Recruitment drive was fun! I’d put pictures up of the amazing thing that was me out society, but I can’t find any anywhere! 😦  I had huge heels, a big poofy dress and a fascinator on… the others had flags…
Also funny thing happened… haven’t been on this thing for two months or so… last time I checked, I had just under 100 or so views could be more or less, I can’t really remember… and now this has happened…

I mean… what the fuck? Did I suddenly get assimilated into the Trueman show or something?!?!?! All I know is they were definitely not that high last time I checked.

OH!!! And please excuse me for being on a Mac. Our course is genuinely being forced to use these overpriced, overhyped, underperforming… things this Semester, so I’m trying to become better acquainted with my enemy…

Here’s a picture of me using a Mac

My Boyfriend Does My Make-Up

So I’ve been seeing these “My Boyfriend Does My Make-Up Tag” videos floating around YouTube for quite some time now, and I thought why not give it a lash? My first problem was introducing him to the idea. And he seemed to take it well. there were no looks of horror, not even an ‘are you serious?’ look. Just a “Yeah… I suppose.”

Image

That’s himself there, making paper airplanes…

As we begun, I began to get slightly worried about the implications if it turned out well… the gay jokes would flow in… mainly from Francis. However, those worries were immediately diminished when he picked up my No7 face powder and said. “Is this foundation? I think this is foundation.” He smelled it. “Yeah, this is foundation.” And proceeded to put it on my face. He seemed a bit disappointed about how light the covering was so applied it twice more. “I should put concealer over it…”. “I’m not telling you anything.” I said. I would repeat that line another few times.

He decided against it and picked up face primer called ‘Face Perfecter.’ I thought he was going to put this over the powder, but tested some on his fingers first and exclaimed in indignation “This doesn’t cover anything!”

I stayed silent.

Next, he rummaged through my bag. “I found your foundation.”

He proceeded to squirt out a sizable glob onto his fingers and put it on my forehead. “Oh…” he sniggered. My forehead was well and truly caked, I could feel it. “Oh shit, should I be using my fingers?”

“Whatever you want.” He looked a little wary, but soldiered on, trying to spread it about my face, and placing more on my cheeks, chin, nose and temples. “Oh, I got it on your lips… You belong in Trooms.”  He picked up my blush and applied it, and to be honest, it was very well done.

After this, it was the liquid liner. I really don’t know which I would have preferred, liquid, gel or kohl. I have all three. But I just closed my eyes and begged him not to stab me with it. I could feel him put it on half way up my lid. After a few minutes of silent giggling while he applied it, he said to me; “You look like an Amazonian woman.” At the time I didn’t know if it was good or bad… It was bad. He also applied it on my lower lid.

Next up, he picked eyeshadow. “I’ll give you a nice skangy pink,” he said with his cheeky smile. “Oh thanks.” I replied. In fairness to him, he did use the right brush to apply it…. all the way up to my eyebrow.

Image

He thought he was done after this, but he spotted my lipsticks. Picking up my dark brown/almost black/looks kinda purple when on, ’17’ lipstick he put it on… Yeah. If you wanna know how that went, here’s a line from him; “I don’t know where your lips end and your skin begins because I’ve covered it in foundation.”

He got it on my teeth. “And a nice big blob of lipgloss… I got some on your fuckin’ cheek.” He smiled.

Image

I still had not seem myself at this point. “Do you think I’d still get some in Trooms?” I asked. He didn’t answer. I went and looked at myself.

Image

“I look like I’ve been in Trooms for six hours!”

I asked him for a kiss. He wouldn’t give me one. He told me I look like the Joker in that last picture.

Fair fucks to him, I’d be just as lost if it came to guns instead of make-up, paintball, airsoft or otherwise.

Image

Paper airplane finished too. That thing hurt when it hit you. XP

Getting Sorted

Okay, so I finally got up off my arse and got Sorted by the Sorting Hat on Pottermore.

However, when I took the quiz, I tried to tailor my results to get me into Hufflepuff because that’s where I knew I belonged. I knew it. Hufflepuff was me, the house described me, not to perfection, but fairly well.

  • Hardworking – Ehh… not so much, unless I’m really really interested in it.
  • Friendly – I suppose, a little shy at first, but I’ll give it a go.
  • Loyal – Most definitely
  • Honest – Yup. Except for a few little white lies, the usual; No, your butt doesn’t look big, you lost loads of weight, etc., etc.
  • Impartial – I do tend to stay out of things that don’t directly involve me.

Hufflepuff has also got the least amount of darkness in its past, and that includes the almighty stuck up their arses Gryffindors.

I know Gryffindor is supposed to be the house that everyone aspires to and aims for because… I dunno, they have big penises or something. But to me Gryffindor is just a bunch of wizards who are stuck up their own hole because for their whole life, they’ve been told Gryffindor is the best house to be put in. And anyone actually in Gryffindor has been groomed to believe they are better than everyone else. In the books, there’s four houses and these four are the good guys, the bad guys and the other two houses. That is literally it.

I have been told before that I think like this, purely to try to pull off an indie image. And that insulted me down to my core.

Indie isn’t even the right term to use, as that is a label purely for music. Hipster was the right term to use. But god help the person who dared to call me hipster completely seriously. Hipster is lower than Scene.

Admittedly, there are a lot of “in” things right now that I dislike or hate and wouldn’t be caught dead near them. Certain music, fashion, movies and books. The basics of a hipster.

I don’t dislike them because they are popular, I dislike them because they are shit.

Simple as.

But anyway, imagine my utter DISGUST when I was placed into Gryffindor!

I was shocked. I actually sat at the computer, mouth agape for a full minute, and then tiny little squeaks began to come from my mouth. Then I began to shriek in outrage.

I could not believe it! I was a Gryffindor. A dirty spoiled high and mighty Gryffindor. I was unceremoniously shoved into the house I hated the most. I would have taken ANY other house. I’d have been so extremely content in Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. Any house I would have been happy in except for that one. My only consolation was, I look good in red.

I slowly began to accept my fate. I’d have to go through the rest of my life as one of them.

Even the acceptance letter was full of it.

“This is, quite simply, the best house at Hogwarts. It’s where the bravest and boldest end up – for instance: Albus Dumbledore! Yes, Dumbledore himself, the greatest wizard of our time, was a Gryffindor! If that’s not enough for you, I don’t know what is.

I won’t keep you long, as all you need to do to find out more about your house is to follow Harry Potter and his friends as I lead them up to their dormitories. Enjoy your time at Hogwarts – but how could you fail to? You’ve become part of the best house in the school.”

Their traits are courage as well as “daring, nerve, and chivalry”…

So they’re a bunch of cheeky muts? That’s all their known for? Running headfirst into a fight without even looking up? And holding the door open for a woman?

How the hell did they ever survive the second wizarding war? Have these guys ever heard of Sun Tzu?

There are literally hundreds of quotes from him that I could put here that show that Gryffindors are the WORST type of people to have around you when planning or in the middle of a battle. But here’s the best:

“He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.”

Do you realize that that is practically what Voldemort did for the seven books? He waited for Harrys big head to come to him, and he did. Which means a load of important characters got killed because Harry had a surge of testosterone and jumped in without thinking. The only reason Voldy didn’t win, was because he didn’t realize that his secret agent got REALLY pissed that Voldy killed off his favourite pair of tits, so he switched sides.

So yes, I became a Gryffindor. Then I realized I hadn’t been entirely truthful about the quiz, so I signed up with a separate email address and took it again. Answering completely honestly. And if I got landed with Gryffindor again, I’d just have to cry it out.

But thankfully I didn’t. But I also didn’t get my dear Hufflepuff… I got Ravenclaw.

Which, to be honest, I was actually a lot happier about than had I gotten into Hufflepuff, looking back.

Anyway, my really long rant is over, so here’s the Ravenclaw welcome letter, and I think it’ll help you see why I liked it more.

Oh, I also didn’t want to be a Gryffindor because the boyfriend’s a Slytherin…

But that’s in the past now…

It’s my Birthday! XD

I can’t find the lead for my camera, so I’ve no way of uploading pictures. Awesome pictures I took of bacon and cakes.

Oh well. Happy birthday me! XD

I found it!!! Yay pictures of Bacon, and I forgot pictures of cake.

So, lets tell this story, shall we? I was out. Out with Francis, Niall and Emma. We went to get drink. We became confused. We stood on the path for over ten minutes trying desperately to make our brains work, so we could figure out what happened. So we decided to go back to college. We drank in Scholars, and Franny bought me a drink, because he’s soo lurvely. So what did we do then?

Niall and Emma went away to order pizza at Emmas, while Fran and I stuck around college until something like 11.00/11.15.

At this point, we were both craving a pizza like no one had ever seen before… I dunno what he did when he got home, but what I did was a process so full with yum, that it’s making me hungry just thinking about it. A process I call… “The Evolution of Nom.

BACON SAMMICH!!!  and to top it all off…   BLACK BOOKS!!!

I would blog about my birthday, but it wasn’t really that eventful. I think I would have preferred another home party. More than likely won’t be going out again. To tell you the truth, I didn’t enjoy myself at all, really.  Oh well. Birthdays tend to be sucky anyway.
