What do you think?

At the moment I feel that this blog is really helping me to put my feelings out there and all that but I also believe that it's no reflecting me as I now am. I think too many of my posts are lacking in thoughtfulness... They just seem to be there.

           I don't feel like I'm making any difference or writing about anything important or life affirming. I        don't want this blog to be purely meaningful, I want to still include fun posts like fashion and lifestyle.          But I do think by adding in more photography will help- maybe some cute editing...

So as part of my new journey here is my first edit, based on the fact that I'm going to London tomorrow

I also am considering paying to get my blog designed professionally, whenever I try to get the simplistic look I want I struggle to get it to fit together.

If any of you have any recommendations on either blog designers, ideas to develop my blog or any questions for an faq I'm planning on doing please leave them in the comments!

Laziest post ever!

Hello,
Today I've been feeling guilty for abandoning you all for a week, I did say I was going to blog more often! Well, I have an idea for a series of blog posts- I know what you're thinking: "oh no, not another series, you always fail miserably,". That's true but the idea I have in mind has the potential to be quite interesting... I think it will be fun to write. Or I might just use the best post idea from the series and write it as a one-off post. Anyway, whatever I end up doing it may take a while and I just wanted to put something out there that might interest you. Below I will be listing great music that I love (I guarantee no one direction or Taylor Swift will be found here!), Websites, and maybe even some youtube videos. Here we go!
NOTE: NONE OF THE MUSIC OR YOUTUBE VIDEOS SWEAR AS FAR AS I KNOW.

Websites:
Cat Mario:
This game will ruin your life. Seriously.

HINT: It doesn't work how you think it will...

A beautiful mess:

Tolly Dolly Posh:

Miniclip:

Please don't judge me.

Music:

^Okay- so this song references to where the wild things are. Yeah- so. cool.

Yeah... I was so alternative up until that point.

Youtube:
Everyone's probably already seen that, oh well!
Guys, you have to check out amazingphil's whole channel! *click here* He is probably one of the best youtubers ever and is just awesome. He even has his own show on radio 1 with his friend and fellow youtuber danisnotonfire, it is really amazing and you can even watch it live on the radio 1 website. It's on sunday nights from 7:00 till... something. Here's the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01971l5
Charlieissocoollike is the first youtuber I ever watched and he is still as cool as ever. He is now crazily successful- plus Stephen Fry voices the outro, need I say more?


Can I just point out- I watched this channel before it was cool. I started watching it in 2008 and am proud of it. I even have the official Simon's cat book- so I'm not just being a sheep here, okay!!!

If you want to know the most subscribed youtubers click *here*

     I am amazed at how fun this post was to write actually- if I was allowed to I would spend all day talking about music and youtubers, and this is almost as good as that. I hope you enjoyed this- if you want to find any similar videos/ music on youtube just type the artist's/ youtuber's name into the search bar.

 Okay then, bye guys

Polyvore

























Hello,
 It shames me to say that up until two days ago, I didn't know about Polyvore. Please don't judge me too harshly!!! I mean, I'd seen the collage picture things on pinterest and had thought they looked cool,, I'd also heard the name thrown around- I'd just never connected the two. This is my first attempt at creating an outfit- I think that it turned out pretty darn good, if I owned it I would definitely wear it every single day. Even though it's quite 'last year' I just adore the preppy style. It's fashionable but still comfy- chunky knitted jumpers = <3. Also, can I just add: how awesome are those shoes?! I really, desperately want a pair of vans because I think that flats are wonderful. But, due to me being constantly broke due to my love of sims and stationary it may take awhile to accomplish that dream. The same goes for Doc Martins. Anyway, I hope that you enjoyed reading this short, little post. I really want to try and get back into the swing of blogging more often because I really enjoy it. Because of homework I may struggle but I promise to do my best!
Love you guys
Flo Jo xx

P.S If you want to find me on Polyvore click *here*
P.P.S I will be taking part in the #fblchat from 8-9pm (GMT) tonight. I would love it if you joined us- it's amazing! To find me on twitter click *here*
P.P.P.S If you think that I'm worthy I would love for you to vote for me in the posh fashion awards, I'm going for both the young blogger and lifestyle blogger categories- thanks!! Just click the button in the sidebar. You guys are the best!

*Jazz Hands!*

Hello,
 Sorry for abandoning you so soon after I made my blog all new and shiny. Feeling a bit rejected because of ridiculously low views- moral: don't get hung up on statistics... Anyhoo, just have to strive on and hope for the best.

 By this point I guess that you are beginning to wonder about that *interesting* post title. I'm certain that some of my smarter reader will instantly think: JAZZ HANDS= MUSICALS!!!! owedfghjvbjkhighkjfjhdlgjr! Yeah! Well, to be honest with you the title is slightly deceptive, this isn't strictly about musicals. It's about plays- actually A play.



















A couple of months ago I mentioned that I was in a theatre group that were going to put on a production of private peaceful (a book by michael morpurgo). Today was the day of the performance!!! First of all I think I'd better give you an idea of what the play's about before I go into saying how it all went. Basically- The story is narrated by a boy (about 15 years old) called Tommo and takes place in 1915/1916. It's a story about him (Tommo), his brother (Charlie), his mother (Mother(!!!)) and his best friend (Molly). The first part of the story centers around Tommo and Charlie's everyday life: leaving school, getting a job, being jealous of his older brother and falling in LURVE with his best friend Molly... Okay, I am going to insert a jump break now because this will probably contain spoilers!
