Tune Of the Day!

Ok, so you may have heard this on one of those cheesy holiday adverts that are always playing at this time of year! But it's a cracking version of the Pixies 'Where is my mind' by Sunday Girl! Give it a listen!! It's beautiful! 


Truly magical! Could listen to it over and over again! So thanks Thomson Holidays for introducing me to this amazing song!

The New love in my live!

This week a new love entered my love...no not a man!! I'm talking about my new patent 'Russell & Bromley' loafers of course!! They are beautiful and a lot more reliable than any guy!! They will never let me down, as the very persuasive sales assistant ensured meee... they will last me at least 4 years before they need to be re-heeled/soled! Result...that's what I like to hear, a pair of shoes that are really gonna last me! Ok, so I had to push the boat out a little...but I consider it an investment right?! These shoes are sticking with me for the distant future so I can afford to pay a little more! Plus it was pay-day on Friday so thought I deserved a little treat!! Ok, enough talk...it's time for you to see this new love for yourselves...brace yourselves...you shall fall in love with them instantly...but 'THEY ARE MINE'...so back up!!



This photo does not do them justice! They are this incredible shade of dusty pink! Bang on for spring!! I love them!! Even for the pricey price of £155!! Money is no object when it comes to shoe-love! You just can't put a price on true love!! I would defo recommend these to anyone looking for a shoe for all occasions! Trust me they're not just a pretty face, these bad-boys are luxuriously comfortable (don't get to use the work luxurious very often...I like it)! Am I selling these much?! Haha! Anyone would think I worked for 'Russell & Bromley' (I don't) the way I'm going on (and on) about them! But I'm just a massive fan and I can't help but try and persuade you guys to share in my passion!! Come on...! Ok...this is over. I've got some shoes to go and admire! Much love

Daily Misfix!

It's been a while I know, but yes these daily Misfixes are still heading your way a good month after the third series finished! Us fans can't be expected to wait a whole year without any updates...(cue me)! Here's an interview from the gala screening of 'Shame' which Iwan, Antonia and Nathan attended the other week! It's pretty funny...a lot of sex talk!! Enjoy!!

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo!

Ok, so last night I went to see the Daniel Craig-Rooney Mara American version of 'The Girl With The Dragin Tattoo' and OMG! what an incredible film! I know, I know...why did the American's think they needed to remake what was already a critically acclaimed film...typical right? And I have to admit I wasn't expecting much from it, remakes (especially big budget American remakes) are generally not very good!! But it was a cracking remake! Rooney Mara kicked some serious ass as Lisbeth Salander!! She was incredible! If you didn't know she was American you could have mistaken her quite easily for being Swedish! She had the accent down to a T!! And she had the Swedish swagger, every Swedish person I've ever meet have oozed coolness, and she had it!! I was so impressed with her performance! It came so naturally! And Daniel Craig didn't fail to impress, a bit of eye candy to distract from the grit and at times incredibly disturbing twist and turns of the story!! It was brutal but definitely worth a watch...it's a must see, but take a friend, don't brave it alone! I have yet to watch the Swedish version but I have it on dvd and when I have the time to sit down and watch it! And I must must must read the books...they're generally always better than the films!! Bring on the sequel next year! I can't wait!

I can't believe Rooney Mara's transformation! Sign of a true actor! Genius!!

From normal Rooney Mara...

To this in the Social Network...

 And then this in The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo!

Wow! What a challenge! This is the kind of job every actress dreams of!! I wouldn't even think it's the same person!! Transformation!! 

Go see it if you can...

Because there's never enough Iwan in your day...

Here's a bit of well deserved Iwan to your day! Enjoy!!


(GIFs curtesy of Sheriff-Gilgun. Thank you!)

My god! The intense Iwan stare is mesmerising! Hands up anyone who hasn't just fall in love?...Nobody?! I thought not! 

Weirdly this is the song I hear when I look into Iwan's eyes...tell me if you agree!! 

 
If Iwan's eyes were a song, they'd totally be this!! This is the only song in the world that could match the intensity of those eyes!! You can't deny Kate Bush has the same mesmeric quality! Hahaha! And those dance moves are definitely Mesmerising! If Iwan's eyes were a dance...low and behold, they would totally look something a little bit like what you've just witness! Priceless!

Misfits Marathon!

So last night I attended the Misfits All-Nighter at the French Institute in South Ken!! I was very much looking forward to it, and to be honest I was a little disappointed with the experience! Don't get me wrong, Misfits itself could never disappoint me...that's impossible! In fact watching the whole of series 3 back to back without any commercial breaks and only the odd scheduled break was superb, and I've come to the conclusion that series three is my favourite series so far!! But I was expecting Iwan and Lauren to make an appearence, and half an hour before I discovered that they were unable to make it!! Gutted!! But Petra Fried - the executive director - is a legend!! She was so lovely and a complete inspiration! She really has encouraged me to buck up and get on my writing!! And watching what I consider the best British Television series EVER all evening was a treat!!

Although, I have to say the Misfits quiz was a complete let down!! The was no moderation, the questions were read out and we all got a piece of paper to record our answers on, which meant people could totally cheat - and they did - by googling the answers! I was mightily PISSED OFF! The people who won, I blatantly heard talking about googling the answers! And surprise surprise they got 23 out of 24!! I wonder how?? At least I know who the true fans are...Me!! When Petra asked the question - 'What is the name of the fictional community centre where misfits is set' - expecting no-one to know the answer, she asked for a show of hands who could name it...and guess what it was only me who put my hand up! She said she was impressed! At least I know I didn't cheat! Where's the victory in cheating, you may have the prizes but you don't have the satisfaction that comes from true success! I hope it keeps you up at night! Karma baby...it's gonna come bite you on the ass!! Any way to conclude I wanna end on a positive note, Misfits rules!!!! And bring on series four, I'm not about to jump ship or 'slip into a life boat by mistake' I'm sticking with Misfits til the end. True fan. Let's end with a Misfits tune of the day...here's Grace Jones with 'I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)'...

Because there's never enough Iwan in your day!

It's been a while since I've injected a bit of Iwan Rheon in to your lonely, depressing days - maybe I'm just talking about myself here, but it sure feels like a long time coming!! Thank god for Iwan this cold, damp winters evening ehh? Hahaha!! I'm gonna follow my usual structure for this post, I shall ramble on a little while longer and then provide you with some pictures of the main man him self! So there you go! I'll get straight down to the main business...

This is an old photograph of Iwan from his 'Spring Awakening' days! This is a new one to me! It's rather fab I think! Iwan looks so serious...as always! True actor at work.

Iwan looks well into his song here! Sweet! Marcus would be proud, he's singing with his eyes closed! I half expect Hugh Grant to run on stage (don't get this reference. Loser. Watch 'About A Boy'...NOW)!


Breaking from the strictly 'Iwan' theme for this picture - in fact you can barely catch a glimpse of him but fear not he's there somewhere - but I just had to share these fab photos of the gang!! Nathan looks well vain hahaha, right up in the camera blocking everyone else! Someone thinks they're too nice haha! Just kidding!

Sufficient amount of Iwan in your day = Satisfied blogger. 

Hope you've all got your tickets for Saturdays Misfits all-nighter? It's gonna be a blast! For all those who shall be joining me Saturday at the French Institute for the event...be prepared for we shall be getting a truly good Iwan-fix in the form of the man himself! In the flesh! 

Always remember...there's never enough Iwan in you day. End of.

Sherlock Finale!

WARNING. SPOILERS. WARNING. SPOILERS. WARNING. SPOILERS.
This post leads little text if you ask me, except maybe 6 words...The Sherlock Finale was the shit! (Now don't confuse 'The Shit' for just 'shit' without the 'the', they are two completely different things! Opposite ends of the spectrum). But in other words...It was incredible!! Benedict Cumberbatch is an absolute God...and anyone who dares argue with me has clearly never watched the show!! I did not take my eyes off the screen for one moment for the whole 90minutes, I was so enthralled!! And what a marvellously evil villain in the shape of Moriarty...he is clearly insane! And Andrew Scott, the dude who plays him, gives me the heeby-jeebies, he plays the role incredibly well...it's scary!! But the cheeky writers left us on a bit of a cliff-hanger at the end didn't they! How the hell did Sherlock escape death!? He fell of the roof! We all saw...! What a mind fuck! I'm non the wiser about the whole thing! I assume that it has has something to do with the exact distance that John Watson is standing from building, we see Sherlock fall from his perspective! Maybe Sherlock never actually fell, maybe he pushed Moriarty's body off the building!? Or maybe he did jump but calculated the safest way to fall judging by the distance he was from the ground! It's all getting a little but Jonathan Creek here if you ask me! Whatever the deal, there must be some significance in John being hit by the cyclist (obviously perfectly timing) who knocks him over to the ground giving him mild concussion - meaning he couldn't identify the body properly when he went over to examine it straight after the 'fall'! I'm confused just writing about it!! But what matters is Sherlock isn't dead!! Which means bring on season three!! Hell yeah! This how just gets better and better! It never disappoints! It doesn't know the definition of disappoint!! It's the shit. End off!

Sherlock til I die!!

BIG NEWS MISFITTIES!!

Okay, so the line up for Saturday's Misfits all-nighter has changed several times now...but this is how it is looking currently!!

As of yesterday it was Lauren, Antonia and Joe confirmed! But ad of this evening things are all change! It now seems that Antonia and Joe have found better things to do (I don't understand how. Nothing could beat a saturday night spent in the company of me. Ha.) and instead Iwan's schedule has just freed up!! Yes, you heard...Iwan!! Iwan! IWAN!!! I can't believe it!! I'm convinced it's because of the persuasive tweet I left Iwan...you can't resist the Naomi charm!!

It was the pretty please that did it. 

I best get my questions ready and my camera poised to catch the Q&A in action!! I reckon it's gonna be a laugh!! Iwan aways has me in stitches, and Lauren just has to open her mouth and I can't help but smile...she's brill! Shame about Antonia and Joe dropping out, but there's still time for them jump back on the band-wagon and join the fun!! You know you want to!!


4 days. Iwan Rheon. In the flesh. excited. understatement.

Misfits All-Nighter line up confirmed!!

Ok so it's less than a week away now, just 5 little days left to wait until the Misfits all-nighter takes over the French Institute in South Ken!! The line up has finally been confirmed, and joining executive producer Petra Fried, Antonia Thomas and Lauren Socha will be the main man himself...Mr Joe Gilgun!!


 I am well chuffed with that, I have to admit I'm a little (Very) disappointed that Iwan won't being making an appearance...in fact, I'm devastated! What better things could he possibly have to do next Saturday evening!?? My answer...nothing that could beat hanging out with me! Hahaha!! Iwan if by any chance you're reading this (the chances are incredibly low) please reconsider...!! Seriously though...think about it!! Anyways...A big thank you to Antonia, Lauren and Joe for taking some time out of their busy schedules to spend a fraction of their Saturday with us...their adoring fans!!

We love you guys...

And as for these two...
Shame. On. You.
Disappointed. (understatement.)

Style Crush!

Three words: Lana Del Rey!! What a wardrobe!!?? I am absolutely in love love love with her style at the moment!!...And her make-up is always immaculate...! She's like a modern day twiggy...but with longer hair...and nails (those bad boys could take someones eye out)!






This looks familiar...hmmmm...this floral jumper must have inspired the American Apparel 3-D flower-mesh jumper...or vice-verser
I think so.


Now lets head back to a time when Twiggy ruled the era with her strong lines & shapes, and bold colour blocking AKA the 1960s! What an era ehhh? My fav by far...



Check out those eyes...
I've always wanted to master the drawn on eyelash look...but am not skilled enough with the eyeliner!! I've had many failed attempts!! But I'm determined to master it before the end of 2012! FACT.

It's time to get my Cardigan on!

Ok, so my work wardrobe is slightly lacking in cardigans...not slightly, but totally lacking!! But fear not, as always I have a wish list of potentials!!

NUMBER ONE:
This rather lovely shawl cardigan! You can't see it very well in this photograph, but there are little specks of blue on grey!! Fetching at the rather reasonable price of £66!

NUMBER TWO:
This gorgeous metallic fisherman cardigan coming in at £68

NUMBER THREE:
And this fabulous mustard mohair knit cardi, guaranteed to brighten-up any dull winter wardrobe heading into spring!! It's gonna cost you £72 though, but I think it's worth it right?

Cardigan's are a spring essential!! It's time to get your Car-di on (NOTE: I'm using 'cardi' as a verb. Because I is cool.)!!

Daily Misfix Revisited: 'That photo. The one with Nathan's Rucksack.'

Last night I posted the following photograph of Iwan, Antonia and Nathan finding their seats at the Gala screening of 'Shame' which took place last night in Mayfair!!

And guess what??? Over night my humble little photograph, which my friend kindly took for me on her blackberry knowing how much of a fan I am, is suddenly talk of the Misfits fandom and being passed around Tumblrs and blogs everywhere...(I may be slightly over exaggerating...just a tad haha!)...But thanks guys...a post of mine has never had so many hits in such a short space of time!! A lot of talk was regarding Nathan's rucksack, an odd choice for a film premiere some might say...but remember this was a low key event...more of a jeans and a nice top kind of doo than a suit and tie, if you know what I mean!! Very 'Actor-ish'!!

Now to give a MASSIVE thanks to the guys at...

&

...for the mention!! Much love guys!! xxx

And of course a MASSIVE thank you to my friend Ellie for providing the photograph!! xxx

I'm glad that Ellie's photo has been seen by so many misfits fans!! I hope that some of you shall be attending the 'All-Nighter' next Saturday (don't know what I'm talking about...FEAR NOT...all shall be revealed by clicking here)!! I look forward to mingling with some other fans!! Hahaha!! I don't often meet fanatics of the show quite as enthusiastic as me, so it shall be nice to be amongst similar enthusiasts!! Have a lovely evening all!!

Daily Misfix: The Gala screening of 'Shame'

I've got a cracking daily misfix for you guys today!! I thought that seeing as Antonia and Iwan have now officially left the show, we would no longer see them attending events together!! Well, well, well...how wrong was I?? Here they are, accompanied by fellow Misfits cast Member Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, hanging out prior to the gala screening of 'Shame', starring man-of-the-moment Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, this evening in London's Mayfair!!

Antonia is so beautiful...it's not fair!!

This daily Misfix is all down to a friend of mine, who was in attendance of the 'Shame' screening, who sent me this picture of the threesome arriving!! Without her heads up I would have been totally clueless! So thank you Ellie for adding this wonderful slice of Misfits to my (and now all of yours) day!! 

Fancy seeing 'Shame', it hits the big screen this friday! Which consequently is Friday the Thirteenth! Anyone superstitious??  I sure am...!! Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Misfits All-Nighter!!

Well, guess what I discovered this very day when doing my routine check of the E4 website!? Wouldn't you like to know...? Yes? Well, I'll tell you!! I discovered that a special event is going down next weekend, Saturday 21 January, at the Institut Francais!! Not just your typical 'Special Event' but a special event with bells on!! Not any old bells...but bells that ring to the tune of 'Echoes' by The Rapture!! Prepare yourselves Misfities for the Misfits all-nighter held as part of the London-Paris Totally Serialized festival 2012!!


So, I hear you ask, what are we in store for if we attend (not that it should take much convincing)?
Well...not only will there be an introduction with producer Petra Fried (I know what an unfortunate name! Her parents must have been having a joke.) but they will be showing the whole of series three back to back with the chance to win special prizes every two hours by offering you the chance to show off your Misfits knowledge in a little quiz (I'm brushing up on my misfits trivia as I type)!! Not excited yet!?? Well, both Antonia and Lauren have been confirmed as attending, but there's still well over a week for other cast and crew members to confirm their attendance...!!

CONFIRMED. The Misfits ladies!

YET TO BE CONFIRMED. The Misfits Lads!

For more details check out the E4 Misfits blog and the Institut Francais website!! Book your tickets now...I already have so maybe see you there!!
