Kristen Stewart's New Role

I am so excited for Kristen Stewart's non-Twilight new film to come out! Snow White & the Huntsman is still in pre-production but just look at how she's dressed for the character of Snow White. Glamour said online that it's going to be more Lord of the Rings like than the Disney version with the dwarfs.
I reckon she will be kind of like the character of Guinevere (Keira Knightley) in King Arthur. More fighting than oh my gosh, save me now, Prince!

This is not the usual inspiration post full of fashion shoots and editorials that make me want to go out and embrace the world. No, this post features the writers who inspire me.

Of course we have Stephenie Meyer, creator of the Twilight Saga. She is the woman who inspired my writing back in 2008 with the words of her first book. Now look where she's at six years later... The last book is becoming real as we wait for the 18th November when Breaking Dawn comes to cinema screens. In truth, although vampire stories came long before 2005, her stories triggered the theme dark romance that is now an official section in Waterstones' nationwide.

Cassandra Clare. She has created a spectacular and beautiful world that Stephenie Meyer wants to be a part of. I too wish to be a part of that world. As well, the fact that she created a love story that was supposedly between siblings who fell in love before they knew that fact. Any person would read it and think what are you thinking you sick freak? But, instead every reader wanted the Jace and Clary to be together even knowing they were supposedly brother and sister. It takes a true skill to persuade an audience to think that.

Adele Parks is a woman who writes about real lives and the troubles of real women in London. Stories of women who don't want children or those who have affairs make good reading. She is explicit in her sexual and sensual writing and she makes raunchy writing a part of the world we live in today. Afterall it is the great 21st century.

Alice Sebold has written one of the most extraodinary novels of my lifetime: The Lovely Bones. It is beautifully written although it expresses pain and hatred of a man who raped and murdered the narrator Susie Salmon. She is a survivor of rape herself which she tells the story of in her debut: Lucky.

The editor of Britain's number one women's magazine, Jo Elvin is an inspiration. She didn't go to university and yet she is the one who runs Glamour magazine. She worked hard gaining experience in newspapers and small magazines before she came to Britain and became editor's for magazines such as Top of the Pops and Sugar. 

Scarlett Russell, the features and entertainment writer for Glamour. She has the job I want when I grow up. How amazing would it be to go around the world and interview many different kinds of people from soldiers to celebrities in just one year or even in one month for that matter.

So, these are my career inspirations. Notice how all of them are women. Don't get me wrong, I love male writers too but for this post lets keep it female orientated just to show that women can have their dreams and aspirations fulfilled. In this day and age, women are going up the ladder to greatness and I will be a part of that in the writing career in my future.

Gossip Girl.

I have just read a post from my old website about the bitchy and drama-related series. It was at that point that I was watching season two of GG and something happened to my friend that a lot of people were talking about. Sometimes, I do have a bit of drama in my life but not as much any longer which I occasionally do miss. As I said on my old blog, I love that bit of gossip wow factor at least once a day.
Now that I'm in uni, nothing like that really happens anymore. I guess it's because I don't know the happenings of many people anymore whereas in sixth form, there were always the rumours and the eighteenth birthday parties that everyone went to.

Anyway, even though my life is nothing like those characters of the Upper East Side, I can indulge in the drama series online and have my own little OMG gossip fix.
The bitchiness, the schemes, the love, the hate, the drama is fantastic and whoever writes the script is an amazing writer, especially for the character of Gossip Girl. It's witty and humorous and fits in with what is going on onscreen.

Among everything else dramarous going on with the characters, the fashion is what decides who is really who in this New York world. If you're not wearing a label, you are out of the Upper East Side. At least that's what Queen B still thinks whilst she attend NYU. Unfortunately for her, no-one seems to care about that anymore.
Whereas, for Little J and her new cronies, it means everything being the social queen and hierarchy of Constance.

This made-up New York world inspires me to make sure that you grab life and keep hold of it and that all the drama can be a little bit of fun in life to remember.

My Favourite thing

... to eat. 

This wrap contains:
Chicken slices
Lunchmeat slices
Grated cheese
Red pepper

It's healthy and sooo lovely to eat for lunch.
As you can see I make the huge wraps where I can barely wrap them and all the stuff falls out of the ends.

I haven't posted in a while and I apologise. It's not like I have been super duper busy where I'm out of the house all the time working and partying and catching up with friends like I should be these few short summer months. Oh no. 
However, I have had an amazing opportunity to write for an actual website. It is called HerUni (heruni.com) whereby female students in London can log on and find out all they need to know about London including how to get around and the classics art, beauty, style etc. 
It all started when I got an e-mail through from one of my departments in uni. It stated that it was an opportunity for aspiring female journalists and hello, that would be moi! 
I contacted the editor-in-chief Geraldine, and asked her some questions about contributing etc. etc. She even looked at my blog! I was very excited. 
Anyway, that was last month and I've only just gotten round to actual write something. That was on Monday. Now, I have three articles on the website. It's all very exciting! 
ALSO, Geraldine asked me to cover an art meets fashion performance. But, I couldn't go! I was so disappointed! It's because I'm up North and the event was down South. I would have gone but I didn't read the e-mail until the day of the event. It would have been amazing! My first real experience of reporting for a publication!

So, yeah. It's been a very exciting past couple of days regarding experience for my future! 
Everyone who is a young female student should look at the website because, although it is aimed at London students, it has a lot of tips for all teenage girls!

The Tattooed Supermodel

This is my new style crush and the woman who has inspired my new tattoo idea:
Erin Wasson. 
She is the twenty eight year old supermodel who struts down the fashion runways and poses for photographers. Vogue loves her so much that she has been in plenty of them including: French Vogue, Spanish Vogue, Australian Vogue and German. Other monthlies include: ELLE, ALLURE, NUMERO and ESQUIRE. 
Not only does she model, she designs her own jewellery range, LowLuv and has introduced a womenswear collection for RVCA in Spring 2009. 
It is safe to say that she is one of the women that every girl should look up to, especially those who want to make it in the fashion industry. 

Nevertheless, she isn't the conventional model that everyone aspires to be. She has her own style and she is evidently creative by the way she expresses herself with her body. 
Her tattoos are amazing and unique, individual to her life. 
I found a blog dedicated to tattoos which has a post for the tattooed supermodel: A Drop of Ink. The blog states that Erin Wasson has a whopping twelve tattoos on her body. It is pretty amazing that a supermodel can have twelve tattoos and still get work.
I salute Erin Wasson and her beauty and her expression.

I love this tattoo featured in Elle France and lapetitefashionista.blogspot.com. It seriously makes me want another tattoo in that same place.
I'm unsure, should I? shouldn't I?
It would look a bit weird if I have writing on the other side towards my back and then an image on the right side.
Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

I'm addicted to tattoos...

Things to do this Summer

So, if you're like me and have multiple loans/overdrafts etc. etc. but still want to have that amazing summer then you may enjoy reading this unless you've already thought of these ideas yourself which is not rocket science, but I wanted to post nice pictures and ideas and the like for all you lot who read this blog.

1. If you are close to a beach, that is a perfect start.

Lucky you lot who live in Cornwall!

In the day, it is obvious what you can do at the beach: sunbathe! and perhaps if you're lucky enough, you can go surfing and the life which keeps you fit as well. Then, when the night time comes, get a few of your mates out with a crate of beer and party until the sun comes up (as long as you pick all your crap up and don't leave it on the beach!).
The price to go is free initially. If you want to do sports, then I have no idea (apologies) and a crate of beer is what 3 for £20 in some shops. Cheap as!

2. Picnic

Set an amount of money for everyone to spend (e.g. a fiver) and organise who buys what. If there is a load of you, make sure people get different things like drink, ham, cheese, bread, crisps, chocolate etc. and voila! there you have a massive banquet for you and your friends. Plan to meet in the local park on a sunny day and take a chequered blanket to either put the food on or sprawl out and catch some rays.

3. Garden Party

Yours obviously doesn't have to look this posh or pretty with tea pots and the like. Like the picnic get a few people to bring their own bits of food and drink and just enjoys each others company outside in the fresh air. Make sure that there are plenty of places for people to sit and have a chat.
Then, when it gets darker, bring the party inside and put on some music.

4. House Party

There is a fabulous section in The Goddess Guide by Gisele Scanlon about how to throw your own house party. It includes things like: putting a couple of chairs and tables in a corner for people to chat and put their drinks down so that it there are no stains on the carpet; how to get stains out of a carpet e.g. sick and wine (red); to put all valuables in one place and lock them away so that it'll be easy to find them in the morning. It really is two pages of great tips and advice.
I think that the book is around £10.99.

5. Road Trip

Get a few of your friends to chip in for petrol and off you go. Pack a few things and take some money and just drive to wherever you feel like it.

6. Camping

Go camping! Or glamping, whichever you feel like. Take a tent and a few clothes, drinks, food and anything else that you don't need electric for, obviously. Build a camp fire and drink all night, singing camp songs or just generally talk and gossip amongst yourselves.
Do this every night until you get bored or you can't pay the spot price anymore and drive home.
