I can't recommend it enough - it was beautifully crafted and poignant, and very well shot. I fell in love with all of the characters and it was also incredibly interesting in a contextual, historical way.
I bought myself this choker as a...birthday present to myself- I've had my eye on it for a while and decided my sixteenth birthday was a just reason to cave in and pay the staggering (not) £2.99 for the matching bracelet and choker set. You can probably get them at a better price but it was an impulse buy (the best kind) so I didn't do my research! The shirt is an old favourite of mine - I've had it for a good while but was stuck with how to style it in new ways until recently, and now it's my new cover-up of choice.
This week and next week are my mocks, so revision has really been stressing me out. My only release has been the wonder that is My Mad Fat Diary - Finn Nelson is..... really something, and don't get me started on Rae! She's possibly my all time favourite TV character and is so so real. If you don't watch MMFD you're missing out. The clothes and music are amazing too - all 90s and perfect. It also deals with issues like eating disorders and depression really well, without focusing entirely on them - more of an acknowledgement of them without completely defining the characters by their struggles, which I like.
The title is a lyric from Dan Croll's 'From Nowhere'. I've mentioned him before - if you haven't already checked him out, you SO NEED TO. I'm not going to make a failed attempt to describe his sound... just watch. This is one of my favourite songs at the moment and has been for the past few months - I'm counting down the days until I see him live! I also love the video - the colours are beautiful and I love the concept!
also, does anyone have any tips for dress shopping? my prom's coming up and i'm struggling slightly on the dress front - if anyone has any good shops or brands, let me know! any advice would be massively appreciated, so thank you!
I should really start doing some english so byee and hope you're all having a good week! xxxxx
