Gingerbread

One of my favorite things to do in winter is to sit talking in Starbucks with friends . I love wrapping my fingers around a mug of  hot gingerbread latte after walking around in the icy cold air and talking for hours. I have been spending my weekends doing a lot of this lately, which is perfect. I also had my friend, Rebecca's birthday tea party which was very cute and I took some pictures. 


I've been watching some amazing movies including Fight Club and The Dark Knight. The next of Almavador's films which I watched, however, was quite a disappointment. I was excited to watch what was described as one of his 'most disturbing film of all time', however Matador was based around an idea which I had seen before on various TV programs. Although I had never seen such a graphic portrayal of a necrophiliac, I was not at all shocked by the plot of the movie but only the explicitness of it. Nonetheless, I still plan to watch a few more.

The Law of Desire

I somehow haven't managed to take my camera anywhere with me at the moment. Through parties and fantastic nights around town, I haven't taken a single photo over the last few weeks. 
Anyway, in the meantime I can share with you a bit about the Pedro Almodovar films which I have been watching. My mum is a huge fan of his work and so I decided to watch a few films from the box set. My favorite was 'Law of Desire' which is known to be his first explicitly gay movie - and is nothing like any film I have even seen before. However, it was certainly interesting and worth watching if you want to be transformed into a crazy world of lust, religion, jealousy and possession.




And I have some photography lined up for the next couple of weeks which will be linked to my art project, based around 1960s Britain. I'm thinking lots of bright bright swinging sixties colours, round sunglasses and lots of sparkle and shine.

Disney

This weekend, I had Jamie's disney themed birthday party. I like the fact that my friends and I still act like young children when it comes to birthdays. I squeezed into my mermaid dress which I had worn on my 4th birthday party and dressed up as Ariel from the The Little Mermaid. The party was really cute, with Winnie the Pooh, Tinkerbell, some of Snow White's dwarfs and more of my favorite disney characters eating sugary sweets and coloured meringues whilst listening to a Disney Soundtrack.


Around christmas time, I absolutely love going to town at night. I love walking around the streets and looking at all the sparkly lights and christmas decorations in thick wooly jumpers. So despite the fact I don't particularly enjoy the actual ice skating, my night skating at the Natural History Museum was perfect. The rink was surrounded by trees lined with glistening white lights and circled a huge bright christmas tree. 


 As part of Jamie's present, my friends Annabel and Ella and I took her for a traditional sunday roast at a gastropub called the Clissold Arms. I love it there because the outside has loads of fairy lights and comfy sofas with blankets on, so you can sit outside all cosy and drink hot chocolate.
