garnnnnnn!

Greetings loved ones,
Sorry for the absence of blogging, I have had a dismally large pile of schoolwork that managed to engulf and almost drown me, so I have been slowly getting through that, and haven't been allowing myself much leisurely time. 
Now, for those musical fanatics among you, you will have noticed that the title to this post is indeed a reference to the much adored musical, play and movie, My Fair Lady. This half term, we started studying the play "Pygmalion" in class, which I later found out is the basis of My Fair Lady. I have never been much of a musical fan, but I found myself utterly engrossed in this comedic and empathic story line. I have also developed a girl crush on Audrey Hepburn, and I must shamefully admit that this is the first movie I have seen of hers - she has instantly converted me to Hepburnism. Oh and she was absolutely beautiful!

Now, on to another exciting topic; it was my birthday last Thursday! I was initially planning to do a birthday post and explain the events of my amazing day, but due to the aforementioned homework, it was a no-no. So I will give a brief interlude:
I received the most amazing and longly sought after presents, including a certain BlackBerry Curve 8520! ♥
 Much to my dismay, Parents Evening just happened to fall on the evening of my birthday, so instead of celebrating, I had to sit through an hour and a half of coffee-breathed teachers explaining to my parents that I talk 'an unnatural amount'.
However the next day,  I went out shopping and for a birthday meal to Finesse, a Chinese buffet restaurant, with a group of friends which was lovely and worth the wait!

 Aah, that American Apparel tee shirt was one of my beautiful presents, after a gruelling 18 months of lusting after it! :D


 Sorry for the awful picture quality, both images were taken on phones.

I hope you are all having a delightful weekend!

P.S. My face, as posed and unnatural as it looks in the dungarees image, was in fact very natural! I cannot remember what I the joke was, but my friend Naomi made me laugh just before it was taken and bam, I came out looking like a panda. Just saying.

☺☺☺

    though I do think Audrey Hepburn is stunning, i only sat through 15 mins of My Fair Lady, even after skipping all the songs.

    The shirt is cute :)
