Video of the week #31 - Lorde - Royals

Hey all! How's it going?
Yeah, I'm so busy I didn't do a Thursday OR Saturday post -_- Don't be mad, I'm working, it's beneficial ...
Yeah anyway


So I love this song! Lorde! I have to listen to her whole album, because I love this one song
Pure Heroine was released last month, actually

Royals is a minimalist and art pop song on her debut album
And I love this! So I thought I should post about this today
And if you've been keeping up with my Tumblr, you may have seen the odd one or two pics I reblogged of her
She's awesome, and also really influential
She's only 17 and she's making amazing music

And on that note, here's her song!

Hope you loved it as much as I did! See you all later!

Video Of The Week #30 - Paramore - Daydreaming

Hey all!
Ok, I know what you're thinking
"Why did you leave us without any material this week we suffered without youuuuuu"
Kidding! But you probably did wonder why I disappeared this week

I had to take a gap week
I know I've been saying I've been messing about on Candy Crush and all that jazz but I haven't even got time for that anymore, let alone much other things that would be classed as "fun"

So I'm sorry I went on a mini hiatus, but GCSE year is killing me (and for all you non British fellows who don't know what those are, they're exams we prepare for over the next two years fml)

On with the video
Ok so you know I love Paramore, I was so overjoyed when I found out they released another music video for a track on their latest album, Paramore
This track is called Daydreaming and it's about two friends who travel to London to see Paramore in concert
See it for yourself!
It's different from their older material but I love it all the same ♥♥♥

Have a great week!

Getting through High School: The Procrastination Problem - Candy Crush

Hey everyone!
Alright, a Saturday post at last whoop!
I have been procrastinating a lot since September
Which has inspired me to tell you all about it in a series of posts, The Procrastination Problem
Here we go..

So I'm in a predicament
I'm pretty sure you've heard of Candy Crush, played it, all that jazz
But if you haven't Candy Crush is basically an app you can get on your Apple or Android
(If you're still with a phone from the stone age, sucks to be you!)
And a trailer to explain it all because I'm too lazy to do that myself
Yes, it may look all sweet and innocent but..
I'm literally addicted to this game.
This game has stopped me from doing much, much more important things
Like homework for example
Apparently that stuff is important
Ew, I get so much of that stuff these days.


I'm on like, level 50 right now and I very nearly completed the level, I just needed one more move..
But no. The game hates me.
And I still have to finish that essay
Yay procrastination! (y)

You have no idea how much time I spend playing this game and draining my phone battery everyday
Oh the horror!

And that's about all for this post
Now I'm gonna go continue my saga 'cause I got full lives! Do my homework, obviously
If you have a procrastination problem, say so in the comments
And we can all complain about not bothering with homework together

Throwback Thursday - Dumb Ways To Die Video

Alright! As I said on Monday, I'm now doing Thursdays again
So I thought Thursdays could be a mixture of all sorts if things
Movies and whatnot
This week is a throwback, I like telling people all my favourite memories (both successful and disastrous) and I thought it wouldn't hurt to share them with you every once in a while

And so it begins

About a year ago I found Dumb Ways To Die on YouTube, some hilarious viral video
And I loved it, so one day in my music class, I went on the iMac and watched it on YouTube
Which of course got the whole class's attention and everyone huddled around my Mac instead of doing their music compositions on theirs

Well you know how YouTube has the list of suggested videos on the side next to the one you're watching?
Well while we were watching Dumb Ways to Die, someone said to me
"Hey Sara! Click on that video!"
And someone else got my mouse and clicked on the video

Needless to say, a cartoon video called Willy Bum Bum probably wasn't the best thing to click on
That was by far the most graphical cartoon ever, really
It was so cringe!
And then we all screamed and closed Safari
But hey, I wasn't the one that clicked on Willy Bum Bum, wasn't my fault O:-)  >.<

So that's about it! I hope you found our cringing amusing and I'll post again soon!
By soon, I mean Saturday (maybe) and definitely Monday

Video of the week #29 - Sleeping With Sirens - Roger Rabbit



Hello hello! How's it going everyone?
So I was venturing through YouTube and Tumblr all last week because it was my holiday
I call it my Hobo Holiday because I did nothing but eat, sleep and scroll on the laptop
They see me scrollin'!
I did go out though, went cinema, shopping, all that

I'm not a vampire -_-

So anyway, I was listening to this Sleeping With Sirens song and I quite liked, so I decided to make it the video of the week

Just because, ok?
Here it is, enjoy my friends
It's so wonderful, isn't it? =D
It's always cool to try new genres because it's great to listen to more artists
So if you don't listen to this sort of music, well there you go! I bet you liked it, hm?

Have a great week!
Sara xx

PS - I'm going to make posts on Thursdays and Saturdays as well as Mondays now, I'm trying to regulate and make more than just one post per week
Or at least try, I'm sorry if I can't always, piles of homework await :'(

Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone!
(I couldn't not put a picture of Dan on the side) =D
It's Halloween today and my plans were nothing but they got sorted and I went to the cinema instead and crammed so much popcorn in my mouth it was unreal
It was a good film, better than I hoped, but when my friends said "You'll have to wait and see what we booked" I was kinda hoping they would have booked a horror movie
But still, good film

But hey, this is another post from yours truly so yeah, I'm currently scrolling Tumblr and whatnot
Alright, nobody has knocked on the door begging for sweets this year
I don't think people do that so much anymore.. :/

Anyway, I was doing the danisnotonfire Halloween interactive game!
The answers are quite different.
Not what you would expect I suppose aha
He posted it like 2 years ago but it's not like Halloween costumes have changed much in the space of two years
I did it eight times just to see all the answers
Well my friend went to a Halloween party in Surrey today
I wish I hid in her car -_-
But hey, who needs parties when you have the sofa and tumblr?
She saw some awesome costumes - a guy who pretty much resembled Jacob Marley, you know, that guy from "A Christmas Carol?"
He had chains across his feet and really pale makeup
So cool :D damn, I wish I had a photo of him

And there was a lady dressed as a headless horseman, isn't that great?
She was just like the real thing; her fave was painted just like a headless horseman, not to mention those fancy shirts with those old fashioned collars and a blazer with a purpleish tint, and trousers
I mean, she never actually cut off her head, she carried a fake one around

Yeah, now I'm wishing I did hide on her car boot
Pssssh, I'm happy on tumblr with my dessert anyway



Happy Halloween everyone! Have a good one!
Sara xx

Video Of The Week #27: Marina And The Diamonds ~ Primadonna

Hellooooo everyone!
Now it's Monday and thus a new video of the week is hereeee

This is a really cool song, I'm sure you've heard of Marina And The Diamonds
I wonder why she calls herself that..it sounds like a band name aha. Ah, she calls herself that because "The Diamonds" are her fans, how sweet (:


It's an interesting mix of electro rock, house and also disco Now that's awful different haha (:
This song came from her second studio album, Electra Heart, released 2012
Damn, feels like so long ago, things have changed for me since then :/

Anyway, here's the video, I'm assuming you'll like it



So have a great week! We break up at school for the holidays on Friday so I'm hoping I'll be free to do my own shizzle

Video Of The Week #26: OneRepublic ~ Counting Stars



How's it going everyone?

So it's about time I did another blog post, and this one is probably one of my favourite One Republic songs
It's pop rock, released earlier this year, a few months ago from their most recent album (as of this post), Native
Which was also released earlier this year too, coinkydink!
It's pretty messed when the old guy falls through the ceiling at the end though lol.. O.o
And what up with the alligator? Haha
But anyways, I love the music video all the same, despite those random things I just mentioned, so yeah, here it it! All ready for you to check out!
You're gonna love this! <3
Hope you enjoyed that video, that's about all for now
Time to get started on my next pile of homework -_-

Video Of The Week #25: Panic! At The Disco ~ This Is Gospel

Hey all!
Great news! Panic! At The Disco are releasing their new album tomorrow!
I'm so hyped! I'm adding a lot of exclamation marks eeeeep! :))
Vices And Virtues was a looooong time ago now, so it feels :)
So the video of the week is a more recent Panic! song, coincidentally

Released just under 2 months ago as of this post, This Is Gospel is the second single from Panic! At The Disco's album, Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! (guys, what up with all the punctuation? Even Pretty.Odd. has it) :))
I'm so excited to see all their other songs!
I hope Spencer gets better soon though :/ (for those that don't know he had problems with alcohol and prescription abuse and stuff, so as far as we know, he isn't touring)
Anyway, without further ado
And it's fun to say "ado" haha
This Is Gospel! :)

Addicted To All Of This

Hey! New post today!
Alright, there's this really cool guy in my maths class, I always tell him
"I need bacon."
Every lesson! That's what I tell him! :D
So he always says
"You're addicted to bacon!" :))
So bascially my love of bacon and his total understanding of my bacon addiction has inspired me to make this post about aaaaaall of my addictions
OK, not all of them, we'd be here forever, but I'll tell a whole bunch

Needless to say, many of which are going to be food, but still..here we go! (:
  • Bacon
    Someone take me to McDonald's for one of these <3
That wasn't rocket science to figure out I'd mention bacon in this
Bacon is like, the best pork product you could get! Ever!
You're missing out if you're a vegetarian
And, if you can't eat pork, then I suggest turkey bacon
I mean, I'm suggesting it even though I've never tried it, but hey! It's bacon, it's an alternativeee

  • Tumblr
Tumblr is one of my favourite sites to go troll, just look at the pretty pictures!!! <3 <3 <3
I actually got so upset when they changed the whole layout of tumblr, you can't even view many photos without having to make an account

So I made an account.
It's like, my second blog, but it's solely for reblogging photos, this is my main blog, and I'll continue using this one!
Have a look at my Tumblr! CLICK HERE!

  • Coldplay
OK, my Coldplay obsession is so unreal
Like, last year, it was Paramore
This year, it's Coldplay, and they are without a doubt one of my most favourite bands right now
Their music actually means something, you know? I could relate to the majority of their singles

And I swear, if someone doesn't take me to a Coldplay concert soon, I'll explode
I'm definitely doing a proper Coldplay blog post soon, videos of the week and music battles just aren't enough :O

  • Um um um my phone <3
Because even though my phone isn't a fancy iPhone 5 (and by the way, iOS 7 is iOS 6's ugly step-sister), it's still awesome
So I basically love my HTC, oh what would I do without it?
Perish.

  • Impulse Body Spray
If ever you walk past me and you smell a delightful smell, that is me and my body spray
And that's some really nice body spray :D
Hehem  I was just shrouding myself in body spray last maths class and then I started choking myself
So don't do it at home.
I'm a terrible role model for that.

Hehe, I think that's all my addictions that are just, pretty evident

You see me texting on my phone
You hear me singing a Coldplay song
You see me filling the room with body spray
I eat bacon from the canteen for a living
I Tumblr frequently

So that's all for this post! See ya!
Sara xx
