Amsterdam adventure!

So I've wanted to go to Amsterdam for a while now and it might actually happen at some point this year if me and my friend manage to save up enough money, and I was just wondering if any of you lovely lot have been to Amsterdam and if so, how did you find it?
Also we have been looking up a few places to stay but since we've never been we don't know the area and we're not too sure on wheres best, any suggestions would be much appreciated. Bearing in mind, not too expensive, hostel type places would be best.

Fanks muchacho's!!

Alt J - dancing in the moonlight cover

Perfect song to just sit back, chill out and think things over for a few minutes.

Tattoos, love them or loathe them?

I want a tattoo and by golly this year I'm going to bloody well get one! A bloody well big one that's on show for the world and its disapproving eyes to see. OR at least that's what my internal monologue is saying whenever I see a picture of a tattoo.

But I really really do want a tattoo, if only a small one in a place where it can be easily covered up and for my eyes only. Hopefully one that I will try to convince myself that I won't regret when i'm in my 40's.

Or one day i'll find the courage and the 'who gives a shit, its my body' mentality to go through with it and tattoo my whole face! Who knows?! but whichever side of my personality comes out on possibly that fateful day I am determined to get one this year.

Looking back at 2013 I can't help but feel disappointed with it and myself. I had all these resolutions that I had planned for myself and really thought 2013 was going to be my year. I'm not saying it was miserable  but thinking back it just kinda feels like, when movies have those montages of someone standing on their own and people rush by them in a blur and their not really taking any of it in.... Well it kinda feels like that.

I think I expected too much last year. I expected things just to suddenly happen for me, I don't know what these 'things' were but I just hoped something would. They didn't.

So that's why I have made no resolutions for this year and have not hyped it up and tried make it into something its not going to be because by the end of the year I just feel disappointed in myself for not achieving these random goals.

I have absolutely no idea what 2014 holds for me, probably fuck all to be honest. But I will try to promise myself one thing and it's just to live in the moment more, I over think things way to much and psych myself out over nothing.

So yeah, that's my way of being optimistic, don't expect too much and you won't get disappointed. Good day.

You're a mean one Mr.Grinch

Sitting in my bed wearing microwavable slippers (yes, such a thing exists and it is heaven) and watching The Grinch, I haven't actually watched this at Christmas in a few years and I forgot how funny it is, love Jim Carrey.

My Mum and Dad are currently downstairs trying to attach Christmas lights to the tree - I can already hear them squabbling how its supposed to be done the RIGHT way -  the ones that are already installed in the tree don't work anymore! and well we can't be having a Christmas tree with no twinkly fairy lights can we?

Well I just wanted to say Merry Christmas now in-case I don't post anything tomorrow. How's everyone spending their Christmas? Hope everyone has been able to get to where they want to be and not be stuck somewhere because of the delays and cancellations in all the transport.
     I'm going to be at home with my Mum and Dad and 3 out of 4 brothers. The oldest one is currently living in Australia - Lucky Sod - and watching a lot of Christmas t.v. while trying not too scoff too much food.

ALSO who's going to be watching Doctor Who tomorrow? I definitely will be! I absolutely love Matt Smith as the Doctor and don't want him to go : ( i'm a bit skeptical of this new guy - shifty eyes -  so i'll watch with trepidation...

December things

I've been a bit sporadic in my posts recently but in the new year I will hopefully get a bit more on top of things and post more regularly. Also I've been thinking about dabbling in videos and posting them on YouTube! D: I'm not sure yet though, it's a bit of a scary thought.

Here's a few bits and bobs I've found delightful this month.

My brother bought me this cardigan the other day for my Christmas present and it is the softest, warmest, cuddliest thing I have ever worn, I literally have only taken it off to go to bed. Its from New Look and you can buy it for £25 but I got discount since i'm a student. - that's one incentive for you to stay in education kids, you get discount off clothes. -

I think I might have fallen in love with this Maybelline nail polish, I've been wearing it nearly every single day this month. It is such a deep rich plum colour which i think is appropriate for this time of year, and if you want to get all festive and merry it looks so gorgeous with a sheer gold glitter over the top.  It is in I think the colour, '104 Noite De Gal'. Highly recommend you picking this up when your next in superdrug or boots.

Oh and I've been wearing these silver rings recently which i really like, the thumb ring I got off an old friend years ago and the ring on my index finger and ring finger are actually toe rings from Avon.

We recently put our Christmas decorations up and my favourite ornament has got to be this little guy. He just looks so cute with his long gangly  legs. Has everyone put their decorations up yet?

I have finally got my hands on Allegiant. The 3rd and final installment of the series Divergent. I will admit because I read the first two soooo long ago I completely forgot what the story line was and who the characters were to each other (obviously I remembered Tris and Tobias aka Four) but the others, nope, long gone. I'm slowly getting back into it though. I loved the first two and am such a massive fan of the book series so I can't wait to see how they adapt it to the movie. Also the reason it took so long for me to get my hands on this book is because I get mine from the library and have to wait for it to be in stock, do a lot of people still do that? I absolutely love libraries, I mean you get books for free! Albeit you do have to give them back but still, free shit! you gotta love that.

Tinks on the left, Charlie on the right.

These cute little misfits have been causing all sorts of mischief, now they are bigger they are constantly jumping on the kitchen tops and the other day Tinks knocked a glass off and it shattered everywhere! but you just have to look at their cute cherub faces and all is forgiven. Tinks loves his food and is actually becoming quite a little chubster its so coote. 
Although Ollie - the dog - does not like them one little bit, we have to separate them in different rooms all the time and its getting quite annoying, but Ollie is a very old dog now and he doesn't really need two little kittens jumping in his face so until these two calm down and learn to stay away from the dog then we'll have to keep them separated. 



Absolute favourite Christmas song.

I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.
I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.
I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.
But when I see a mother with a child;
a girl with her lover;
or a friend laughing with their best friend;
I realize that even though I like being alone
I don't fancy being alone.
