It's almost Halloween (cue spooky oohs) and i am just pondering as to how i am going to do my hair/make-up/nails for school and for my film-a-thon tomorrow.

Having declined an invite to a party last night, albeit mainly because i wanted to watch the X Factor Halloween special, i took it upon myself to organise a spooked up film fest to have with my two friends, Ellie and Simran. I thought it would be fun to wear our pyjamas and then do crazy hair and make-up to get into the Halloween spirit. My mum even bought me a little 'Trick or Treat' pyjama top seen as i couldn't get this amazingly cool skeleton onesie from Topshop.

Oh and there will be plenty of food; i'm concocting my homemade treat (if you will) of popcorn in melted chocolate...possibly with the added surprise of jelly beans. I love how much we celebrate food at festive occasions, particularly as most of it is created with cakes and biscuits. These cutesy pumpkins and bat biscuits are so adorable.

So for school tomorrow i shall paint my nails with a gooey effect or possibly attempt a cobweb and then tease my hair a little (as if it isn't big enough already) just for funsies. yay! If i was on twitter right now i would totally be hashtagging the word excited.

Any suggestions for films to watch? Although i'm ninety-nine percent sure we won't be watching scary films, there's plenty of room for a Twilight-a-thon or a Harry Potter-a-thon...although realistically we'll probably end up watching White Chicks or something not even remotely linked to Halloween.
I'd love to know what you're doing or dressing up as!

Cover: We Found Love

After hearing this song so many times due to my obsessive viewing of the video, i decided to do a more acoustic version seen as i haven't made a video in a while. I tried to improve on my previous covers by looking at the audience (well, my camera that was balanced precariously on a stool) as the delivery of a piece of music is just as important as the piece itself, in my opinion. Comments about ways to improve in performing would be greatly appreciated...although i have to warn you that my dancing skills go about as far as the macarena. Anyway, here is We Found Love:

Oh my gosh! Only three days until it's Halloween! waaah!

We Found Love

"It's like you're screaming but no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important, that without them, you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. And when it's over and it's gone, you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back so you can have the good."
      We Found Love // Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris

It is not actually possible to love a video more than i love this one. I mean, i thought Only Girl In The World was amazing but Rihanna's latest video exceeds all expectations. The raw emotions portrayed in this film suit the lyrics perfectly; i adore the fast paced movement of the imagery which incorporates a range of issues such as drug abuse, sex and heartbreak. The old-school grunge styling and dark tone to the film complement each other and Rihanna embraces her look to the full, i now have an urge to rip my tights and pair them with an oversized denim shirt and a tattoo. She is the perfect badass...not to mention her co-star Dudley O'Shaughnessy is haaawwt. I shall leave this post revelling in the immense-ness of the creativity Rihanna and her team have yet again produced to the highest standard, enveloping the audience in a different world.

Labrinth ft. Tinie Tempah // Earthquake

La-la-loving this song. Representing British music in it's best form, Labrinth and Tinie have created yet another tune to add to their ever-growing collection. I love the tetris reminiscent synth sounds, they're great to build upon, paired with the stripped down vocal chorus used in the bridge. The musical composition and layering of sound and voice is just pure perfection; from the 'musical onomatoepia' (oh yeah, new term) with the trumpets to accompany the lyric referring to Buckingham Palace as well as the all round mash up of just about every genre imaginable, from techno to rap to choir-like voices. Siiiiiick.
