Get Your Life!

At midnight on the 13th of December, bitches across the world were proclaiming how KING BEY "gave them life" over the world's best kept secret… Her self-titled album, and not just any old album, no, no, a VISUAL album, complete with 14 songs and 17 videos. What a total surprise right? I mean, she literally created history. What other artist has ever even thought to do that? She dropped the album with no warning and no promotion. Beyonce is a pure and utter genius, she didn't have to promote, she had everyone doing it for her!

I absolutely love Beyonce, but after the 1st listen of the album I was probably the only person in the world rolling my eyes into the back of my head. Don't get me wrong, one or two (or three) of the songs were doing it for me, but the rest I was just not feeling. You see, i'm one of those people that need to listen to something a gazillion (is that even a word?) times over before I make up my mind on it. This was a whole new Beyonce. Ratchet Beyonce. Beyonce that literally dedicates the whole album to Jay's package and bedroom skills kind of Beyonce lol. I still don't know how to feel about this to be honest, how sex is the core to all the songs we hear nowadays. Not only that, but the endless tweets about how Beyonce "slayed" lives just annoyed me, I just couldn't fathom how sad some people sounded, idolising someone in this way, it baffled me. Why is it okay for Beyonce to sing/talk about sex so much and act a certain way but when the likes of Rihanna and Miley Cyrus do it it's a different story?. Can anyone relate? no? Didn't think so…

Fast-forward a month and some days, I have finally caught on, I got on the bus. Yasss hunty! (ratchet behaviour due to listening to the album). On a serious note, I take back some of the things I said and my pre-judgement about the album. I have been listening and watching the videos non-stop and I must say it was a very creative and clever move on her part. She has definitely shut me up and set the bar very high for other women in the industry.

What did you first think about the album? Has your opinion changed? What's your favourite song? Comment below :)

Happy Birthday To Me


It's monday, therefore, that can only mean one thing… Ive recovered from my birthday shenanigans! This past weekend marked my 22nd birthday (yes I know I don't look it) and what an amazing weekend it was. I'm pretty sure people are sick and tired of seeing my lime dress plastered all over their wall on Facebook and Instagram feed, but I don't care, look away lol!

After a massive 21st party last year, and all the stress that came with planning a party, I decided to keep things simple this year. Over the last year I've been doing some soul searching and making some life changing decisions. A big part of those changes have been re-evaluating the company I keep, and ending a lot of so-called "friendships". It's really true what they say.. "You aint growing up if you aint losing friends".

On friday, I had the most amazing dinner, with some of the closest people to my heart. Words can't describe how much fun I had. At one point, I caught myself just looking around the table with a goofy smile, watching everyone in deep conversations whilst divulging their plates of food. The food in Preto Rodizio is so amazing, I'm drooling now just thinking of the meat. Every other minute skewers with different cuts of meat came to the table, drinks were flowing (which resulted in some ratchet behaviour) thank God I chose not to wear a body hugging dress. Oh, and of course the presents were a bonus :)

It was quite overwhelming, the love I felt. The feeling of people being there for you and only having your best interests/intentions at heart. The older I get I've grown to realise that life is not about being popular but by having real friends and family around you.

What great start to my year! I can't wait to see what else 2014 has in store for me…

First of all let me take the time to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

This blog post is long overdue, one of my New Years resolutions was to be consistent with my blog posts, but as per usual I having been living up to my name of 'Procrastination Queen', and putting stuff off for the next day, which turns into the next week! But, that is all about to change. You're probably rolling your eyes thinking "ohh, everyone says that", but I have made a promise to myself because time time waits for no-one. 

I don't know what it is about an approaching birthday that makes you think about every aspect of your life, especially the future. I know I'm not alone in this, because in these last few weeks, I have engaged in countless conversations with close friends about life and what we want to do etc.

Do you ever find yourself just looking around at your peers thinking, "wow they've got so much going on for themselves, what am I doing"? Well, that's all I seem to be doing these days. I think a part of that is because of this cut-throat industry i'm in. There's so much pressure and competition and boy am I feeling it alright. I know exactly what it is I want and need to do to make it, so there is no excuse. I know my potential so sitting around in my room doing nothing all day is just not going to fly anymore.

Apart from hating the course I was doing in Birmingham with a passion, a huge reason why I decided to quit it was because I wanted to be in London.. 'The land of opportunities' lol and I feel like I haven't taken advantage of this great city and what it has to offer. I mean, I've been to one or two exhibitions and events but it's not enough.

Okay, I've just read what i've written and I sound so miserable! gosh! I think ill cut this post short before I bore you to death with my inner thoughts, then again this is called 'DIARYofanextrovert' right?  So it's only right that I vent/share some of my thoughts with you from time to time. With all this spare time I have had on my hands, I've been doing some hardcore thinking about the blog and it's context, and I must say I'm excited. Watch this space haha!
