Things I Love Thursday [31/3/11]

Things I Love Thursday ♥

Happy Thursday! And welcome to today's love list ♥

Little pieces of loveliness;
This etsy shop has the cutest jewelry ever (!!)  ♥ Schuh re-tweeted my blog post featuring their shoes (!!)
Moving - I don't really have many positive things to say about moving house (very soon!) because I'm genuinely not looking forward to it, but there is this one thing: I'm going to be way closer to a beach (!!) If you knew how much I love the beach... ♥ Your comments (!!) Thank you for all your lovely comments :D and dropping by my blog. I always check out your blogs :] ♥ Taylor Swift - She obviously has to be included. She's just so incredible. And I love her more than ever. Re-discovering music - I've been going through my itunes and listening to songs I haven't listened to for a while or at all - Every once in a while I make a playlist of songs that have 0 plays and listen to them. ♥ Planning the decoration of my new room - Reason #2 why moving is good. I'm planning how my new bedroom is going to look in my head. So excited to get started.

Photo Love;

Have a super Thursday ♥ :]

I Was Screaming Long Live... (quite literally).

Having calmed down and grasped that yesterday actually happened and I wasn't dreaming (...again) today's blog post is - inevitably - about Taylor Swift & her Manchester concert yesterday.
It was magical beyond words. But I already knew it would be.

It was superr sunny and warm on the day which I was truly grateful for. Because I had an hour wait for my train. Waiting for a train in the sunshine is pretty awesome ♥

(On my way! - Train window view.)

I firstly caught a bus (40 minutes - to the train station) and then a train (3hrs40mins) and FINALLY arrived in Manchester a few minutes late. (boo!)
I was so glad to be there, despite that though. My excitement was out-ran by my needing to rush - I needed to check into my hotel before going to the arena and I was already a little late - But if I wasn't running late enough already, when I was checking into the hotel, the woman's computer crashed for like 20 minutes.
When I finally checked in, I literally chucked everything into the room, reapplied my make-up, put on 13 glow bracelets, my t-shirt and purple ribbon and headed to the arena.
I forgot to paint a 13 on my hand (big, bigg fail) and I also forgot my speak now wristband (more fails).

(T-shirt, ticket, purple ribbon - for the TC purple ribbon project)

(The arena Pre-Taylor madness)

I missed out on the Fearless tour, because my life was literally very different then, I would've loved to go but that can't change now. I'm so glad I got to go to the Speak Now World tour ♥
It was magical in every way.
I didn't have a lot of money on me (...all my money went on travel & accommodation) but I knew I HAD to buy at least a t-shirt from the merch stand and so that's what I did. (I don't have a picture of it... yet)
It's currently my favorite thing. Because it reminds me of everything about that day.

All the photos I took (...remembering I was in block 107. So I wasn't very near at all. Until she came onto the 2nd/mini stage) are on my Flickr here:

I feel as though I need to sleep for about a week now... Haha.
Completely worth it in every way possible though.

Schuh Love ♥

Today, joy comes in the form of an email from Schuh containing their latest arrivals - which prompted me to go on their site and spend quite a while looking at even more shoes.
And if you didn't know (you know this, if you know me) Schuh is my favorite shoe shop in the UK ♥
They are awesome.

Maybe I should've called this blog post 'if I could walk in heels...' - because in reality, I'm really bad at it.
Anyway... SHOES ♥

(Photos -

Shoes with bows on, bright colors and ones that remind me of ladybirds are always welcome in my life.

Welcome to Rock 'N' Roll Gypsy!

A true face lift has happened!
I decided it was needed, and then I've been thinking of changing the name but nothing came to me until today.
I quite like it. It fits in well. ♥

I am going to start blogging properly. I actually mean it this time.
I'm moving house in 2 weeks, so when everything's done/sorted/settled my head will return to it's 'normal' self... meaning it won't have a thousand things going round and round that desperately need sorting before a certain time. So I'll have time to focus on other things, like writing. Finally.

I will try to blog later though, if I have time.
Meanwhile, let me know what you think of the new design (and name!).

I Will Blog.

Photo ♥ Tumblr

I'm such a bad blogger recently, it's unbelievable. 
But I love blogging so much and really want to blog more often and I do plan to.
I guess things are just a little crazy right now and every time I plan to blog, I haven't had any time to gather inspiration for a blog post - and nothing relatively interesting happens in my life - so I just don't blog. Because I don't want to blog about boring things or just blog about nothing.

And so welcome to an update on my life. (Haha) A bit of a contradiction (see above), I'm sorry.
Every now and then I just like doing a little.. update, on what's going on and so here's what's happening right now...

1. Taylor Swift (!!)
As of tomorrow, it's 7 days (or one week!) until I head off to Manchester to see Taylor Swift. I've officially ran out of words to express my feelings of excitement I think. (P.S click here for my blog post about it!) My main focus is completely everything to do with this now.

2. Moving... again
If we hadn't moved enough already (England... Scotland... Wales... More England... More England) my parents have decided to move again. Back up near my sister, (Norfolk to be precise.) and when I say 'near' I actually mean a street away. Yeah. So we're moving on the April 11th. Oh what fun.

3. Songwriting
I'm still completely in songwriter mode. And after nearly having a heart attack after realizing most of my lyrics are saved on my laptop and it wouldn't turn on (!!) I'm currently writing them all out into one of my various brightly colored notepads (I seem to collecting them sub-consciously.) I'm also hoping to record some songs soon :] Yay.

4. Packing (and finding things)
This falls into the 'moving' subject, but anyway. It's one the of the things I just really, genuinely dislike.
I just find it really boring and stressful. But it's definitely interesting sometimes. Particularly if you have a lot of junk that you've kinda just stuffed away at the back of a cupboard like me. I found a lot of things I thought I'd lost, a lot of things I can't remember ever getting (haha) and a hell of a lot of junk.
Nearly everything is packed and my shelves and cupboards are looking very bare :[

5.  Thinking. Planning. Sorting
Lastly, I've been doing a hell of a lot of thinking and planning and sorting.
Life wise, mostly I guess. Living my life the way I want and getting the most out of it is really important to me.
I often feel like I'm wasting my life, not doing the things I really want to. I don't want to have major regrets later on in life.
A lot of things are gonna change really soon.

So that's whats going on with me right now... I did say my life wasn't interesting remember.
:') Hopefully I'll catch some time soon to gather enough inspiration for an interesting blog post.
I hope you're all well!

Preparing to Speak Now.

[Note: I haven't blogged in forever, even though I said I would, sorry about that.]

So, it's just two weeks 'til I head off to Manchester to see Taylor Swift - I would go into why & how much this means to me, but I wouldn't know where to begin... or stop :P
I wanted to blog and so I figured I'd blog about this and tell you what I'm doing/how I'm doing it - It's probably more interesting to swifties, but anyway.

Let's start at the beginning:
I'm getting a train to Manchester (oxford road) in the morning that takes just under 4 hours (...I guess it's good I like travelling) I should get in at 3:40 and then I'm getting a taxi (because, I'm not, I repeat, not, getting lost) to my hotel and checking in.
At 4:00/4:30 I'm heading down to Victoria station to meet some swifties (yay!) :D And to paint faces and such.
(Warning: If you are a swiftie, there is a 95% chance I will hug you. Just saying.)

I took some photos earlier of my 'speak now bag' that was formally called my 'gig' bag but couldn't resist re-naming it.
It has all the stuff I'm taking with me to Victoria station/The arena.

This is the actual bag. It's more of a mini bag. And it's SO sparkly (!!) 
which is always awesome.

The inside is very purple themed.

The contents! - Face paint, UV face paint, My 'speak now' wristband,
eyeliner 'pen', green & purple liquid eyeliner & my purple bow for the
purple ribbon project.

I'm painting a '13' on my hand in purple and green with a black outline and with face paint I'm doing a heart with 'TS' in it on one cheek and 'speak now' on the other.
And I'm planning on wearing a purple t-shirt that says 'Be Fearless and Speak Now' in silver glitter.
And on the back it has my Taylor Connect username. :D
This is the plan anyway.

For anyone that's reading this and actually going to the show (Manchester 29/03/11) I'm in block 107 so let me know if you're anywhere near :] or even if you're just going!
