Borders girl living life in the capital

Winter Inspiration

In the last few days I seem to have really developed a Christmas spirit. I think it may have something to do with having two weeks off work so I've got plans to go Christmas shopping, see the lights get switched on in town, make Christmas cards, buy a tree and decorate our flat and me and a few friends are going to a Christmas food festival at the weekend! I am officially very excited for Christmas!! Even had 'Fairytale of New York' blasting last night and I've already watched 'Miracle on 34th Street' about 2 weeks ago!

I ended up spending ages last night looking through Tumblr blogs that are dedicated to Winter and Christmas and that's where I found all of these lovely images. (Most images are from this one and this one!) Hot chocolate, snow, cosy socks and knitted's what this time of year is all about. 

The sky's not the limit, it's just the view.

I seem to have an obsession with talking photos of the sky. Some of these photos are from a few years ago when I lived at home, I just found them on my usb stick recently. However I'm lucky to have a great view from the flat I live in now in Edinburgh and so the majority of these sunset shots were taken from the flat! Every time the sky is anything but dull and grey I'll take a photo, I love having such a great view of the skyline from my window. I know these photos are not great quality (I'm not really into photography and most of them were probably taken on my phone), they're pretty though!

Recently Played

Hi guys, been pretty absent from here lately. I've been very busy working and enjoying life! I will most likely have another instagram style post very soon so I'm sure you will all see what I've been up to including me and my friends amazingly homemade Halloween costumes! I'll hopefully be able to put aside some time soon to construct posts and I have loads of ideas for blog posts including some Christmas themed posts! But for just now here's a little insight into what I've been listening to lately:

I first heard of The Lake Poets when they were the support act when I went to see Leddra Chapman live in Newcastle a few years ago. I came home from that gig and downloaded some of their material, which I played to the point of exhaustion at the time, and this is their most recent number. Almost played this to that point too!

I've always been a fan of Taylor Swift's stuff and this song just came up on my YouTube app the other day as one of the featured videos and since then I've had it on repeat. Such a nice song! This song might tempt me into buying her new album.

I've been a fan of Rebecca Ferguson since she was on the X Factor, I was in the minority of people voting for her when most people were Matt Cardle fans! I got her album for Christmas last year and it really has been my most played album this year. When she appeared on X Factor this year singing this one, I was unaware that she even had a new song out so basically since then this is another one that I've had on repeat.

I'm not even quite sure how I came across this one! I've never really listened to Frightened Rabbit before, despite them being from pretty near my home town...I think! Even now I haven't listened to anything more the than this one. I just love this song for some reason, you've got to love the singing with a Scottish accent!

Now my liking for Nicki Minaj songs is one that I feel particularly ashamed about but it really is one of my guilty music pleasures. I've never not liked any of her songs, they're just so darn catchy!..."If you want it, I'm gonna be Va Va Voom Voom!"
