Things I love About the Season...

The first time I listened to Christmas music was the 25th of November. I was trying so, so hard to wait until the 1st but the temptation was too much. Mariah and her Christmas wishes were just calling (singing?) my name and, ever the people pleaser, I had to answer. I flung the Christmas door wide open and let all of the metaphorical tinsel, mince pies and elves spill into my room. I needed Christmas and all of the magic it brings with it. I've officially given in to all of it (there is 22 days until Christmas, after all) and indulged in all of the things I love about the season...

- From- pretty much- birth I was convinced that I hated coca-cola: I remember having it at someone's sixth birthday party and being completely repulsed. However, on the 12th of April 2017 (a date that I am determined to commemorate annually) I had my first sip in years and loved it! Ever since the, I've been addicted to any, and every, type of cola... it's a slippery slope! That discovery led to me finding 'coke girls'. They are an elite breed of female who manage to look effortlessly cool whilst clutching a can. They have those bad-ass, bay watch vibes that I can only aspire to; trust me , I do! With Christmas, brings that iconic red can and I'm more than ready for it. The season will hold in store millions of photos of me attempting to capture the essence of that immensely alpha, coca-cola drinking, dream girl. And that is one vibe that I am definitely here for! 

- Christmas songs. 

- As you can tell, I'm in life purely for the aesthetic. I love a good scroll through Instagram and winter is so perfect for photos! My favourite kind are the toned and tanned legs under a fuzzy whit blanket. Being an insta God (blatant sarcasm but add me up @words_with_el) I try to recreate these. Sadly, they never come out that great. I've pinned it don to a few things. 1- I'm not a Victoria's Secret model and never go to the gym so there is no definition going on here! 2- I'm the palest person on earth. My English teacher once said I was 'see through'. British weather doesn't help that factor. 3- The blanket on my bed is blue and cream and looks like a 'snazzy cow'- quote from me to Soph last night!

-I love Summer because you can just wander the streets. Not in a road man way! It means that I can stand a 45 minute walk to the nearest park and then just sit there for four hours. Or, I can get a bus into town and then walk around the marina. You can just do whatever because it's not freezing cold! In winter after anything longer than 20 minutes outside I'll be regretting my life choices. That means you need an actual plan for what you're doing, which can  be really great! I had a two hour stint in Starbucks, recently. I enjoyed that because I am the mist basic white girl! You can also hit up art galleries (something I always think would be a great first date idea!) or do something a bit closer to home. 'Tis the season to climb into bed, grab and friend and binge watch Gossip Girl!

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
