It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

HAY HAY HAY! How's everybody feelin'? I am super excited because it is officially ONE MONTH UNTIL CHRISTMAS DAY. Doesn't it make you feel warm inside? It just makes me think of being all cozy, cuddled up with the fam and my beloved Milo (dog), snug as a bug in a rug, and watching crappy television. Another thing that isn't too terrible about Christmas? PRESENTS!!! This year my list for Santa consists of a sewing machine and clothes. How original of me. I already know that my Mother has purchased a tee for me (poet and I know it) from the Lanvin for H&M collection! This is gunna be a good Christmas, my friends.

You will be mine. Oh yes, you will be mine.

Another thing I would like to mention is that the Walsh family just got cooler. Is that possible, I hear you ask? The fact that my Father and Brother were in last Sunday's 'Style' magazine (the one that comes with 'The Times') saying what they want for Christmas. It was pretty rad.

My Dad doesn't always smile like that.

Last Saturday I went to my friend's party, and like I already said, her name is Tilda and she is awesome. It was pretty crazy and I only knew a few people but it was entertaining and, come on, it's a party and that means dressing up, so I am happy!

My Inspiration - Taylor Momsen

What I wore: Cardigan - Urban Outfitters, Top and Shorts - Reformation, Tights - Henry Holland, Shoes - Doc Martens, Necklace - Marc by Marc Jacobs.

I swear I am not as vain as I seem!

Due to popular demand, I would like to mention a few of my 'Winter Inspirations':

1. This is England '86 - As I said in my last post, LOVE the Skinhead style.

2. Audrey Hepburn - C'mon, when is she not an inspiration?

3. Taylor Momsen - She can be annoying, I admit, but she goes with her own style and that is admirable. People argue that she dresses inappropriately for her age, but like she said in an interview, 'when can you dress like this without people creating a big deal out of it?'.
True, some of her outfits are questionable, but it's her body, she wears what she wants, and frankly, she would look beautiful in a potato sack.

Yes, that is probably the strangest combination for inspiration, but I am sticking to it!

As you all know, I am a devoted Gleek. Well, you can imagine how excited I was to find out that this June I am going to the Glee Live Tour with a couple buddies. OMG OMG OMG OMG.

P.S, that is 'Oh My Glee', not God. Naturally.

Biggest Song Obsession of the Day:

It's been nice catching up, but I gotta go and watch some more old school Sex and the City episodes. And yes, I am equally excited about Christmas as I am for the release of 'Sex and the City 2' on DVD. Woop woop!

Winter Whites

'Ello me lov-a-lees. Il fait froid. Il fait très froid. Right, so this weekend just gone I attended my friend Beth's birthday partay and, as I told you in my last post, I was a cheerleader with my buddy Ruby. I nearly peed myself I was so excited to wear my epic cheerleading uniform, but luckily I was too busy dancing around I didn't. Saved by the wonderful sounds of 'Glee'.

Hey Mickey, you're so fine! You're so fine, you blow my mind!

This Saturday is my snazzy friend's birthday party, and yes I am a social butterfly. JOKES. Back to the story, her name is Tilda and she has incredible taste in music and fashion so shout out to Tilds! I am planning on wearing my new Doc Martens and new Henry Holland tights from Urban Outfitters. Before I show a photograph, let me just tell you about how I got to be the owner of this awesome vintage preppy cardigan. One of my best friends, Beth R, has a super cool older sister called Tamar. She is so funny and has an immense fashion sense. A few weeks ago she told me that she had a cardigan that was too small for her that she wanted to pass on to me. I may have squealed with joy (come on, free clothes!) and me being the goldfish I am, I forgot for like a month and picked it up last week. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! If you ever read this, THANK YOU SO MUCH TAMAR!!! It fits perfectly and I will definitely be wearing it this winter when it gets even colder (insert crying here). Here's a photo of the newest additions to the collection that is my slightly over flowing wardrobe:

Tights from Henry Holland at Urban Outfitters. Raunchy.

My incredible FREE cardigan and new DMs. New winter staples!

Oh yeah, my winter project it to find my Mother's old sewing machine and start making my own clothes! I am very excited and I will update you when it is up and running :)


This is England '86, don't listen to every one else, you were INCREDS.

I love the girls...

And the lads *CRINGE*. I mean boys...

Especially you...

Harvey. Mmmm. Yes, I do realize that I probably have the weirdest taste in the world.
Especially for a 14 year old girl who should be screaming over The Jo Bros and Justina Bieber.
I would rather look at Harvey from 'This is England' or Jeff Buckley. Thanks.

Well, I'm off to the Pep Rally....

Before I cheer my boo-tay off, I LOVE MISFITS EVEN MORE. Season 2 did not let me down at all!

Oof, my heart! Nathan, I missed you. How I love thee.

Global Warming, Shmobal Shwarming...?

Haaaayyyy. Basically, I have not got loads to ramble on about so here is my attempt:

- It is too cold for words, hence the title of this post. My best friend is the radiator. I spent my German lesson hugging one.

Hello, lover.

- I recently watched a film called 'Mary & Max' which I am in love with!!! It is incredible! It's claymation and proper tear jerker too. That, my friends, is a good combo in my book. Read a full review on my brother's blog (Ooh, the Walsh family are stepping up their game, yo).

- This Saturday I am attending a fancy dress party for my buddy's birthday and I am being a cheerleader with my pal Ruby. I ordered them from an American website, so they are obvs the shiznit. Word.

Once I put it on I never want to take it off.

We are currently learning this. No, of course I did not already know it off by heart. Cough.

Come on, who doesn't want to be a cheerleader?!

- I saw a preview of the Lanvin for H&M stuff and am thrilled. Lanvin but cheaper? SIGN ME UP. It better not sell out like the Comme for H&M or I might just have to buy the incredible expensive stuff. Hmm. Life is hard.

- Christmas is more than a month away and I am practically already peeing myself with excitement. Ice-skating. Wooly jumpers, scarves and hats. Old crimbo films... PRESENTS!!!!!!

- I just ran out of things to say. Here's an attractive photo to satisfy you and distract you from my lack of creativeness at this moment in time.

Bonsoir, mes cheries!
