|The dame was fantastic!|
I've been doing some cool stuff lately so here I go rambling..
Last weekend I went to the Chipping Norton panto. We go to the panto every year with my cousins and it's a bit of a family tradition! This year it was Jack and the Giant which was an adaptation of the classic story Jack and the Beanstalk.
|I mean look at those butterflies!|
I also went to see the the new Hunger Games movie. I thought the film was better than the first however I prefer the first book. I love Effie's extravagant style and the whole look of the capitol.

I've also been enjoying my geography lessons recently (which I don't normally!). We're doing a project about city design and we're designing a sustainable Japanese island. I'm really interested in design so this project is great!
I've been trying to spend less time on tumblr and more time reading. Here's what I've been reading lately:
I have had a subscription to Elle Decor for the past two years and it was time for renewal so I thought I would switch over to Elle since I've been getting more interested in fashion and I saw this deal (which is now over). I really love flipping through the glossy pages and looking at all the high fashion looks. Subscribe here.
Barbie: Her Life and Times by Billyboy
This was a gift from someone a few years ago and I "rediscovered" it in our library a couple of weeks ago. It covers all of Barbie's fashion trends since she launched in 1959. Buy it here.
Rookie Yearbook Two by Tavi Gevinson
Just as amazing as the first, this yearbook is filled with articles, interviews, collages, photo editorials, and illustrations all beautifully printed. Buy it here.
More Than This by Patrick Ness
This thought-provoking book is about what happens after death. I love the front cover! It tells the story of Seth and where he wakes up after death. Hugely recommend! Buy it here.
I don't know if this counts are reading of looking but either way these are fantastic books. The books are collections of photos from Slinkachu - a street artist who abandons little people on the street (it's not as bad as it sounds!). I love how you see the little people close up and they don't seem so small but then you see them in the outside world and they seem tiny. Check it out here and buy the books here.
Also, have you heard the Arctic Monkey's new album? I love it:)
