SHOOT ME!... ow. why'd you do that?

Holly Booth Photography www.hollybooth.com MUA: Kira Kaur

Just one picture atm... more to come though!
Re-doing the shoot soon as we weren't happy with the lighting on the day in the woods!

I'm not keen on me in this... I LOOKS UGLY. It looks pretty good big though, and she's an awesome photo
grapher :D
She's done amazing considering it's me she's shooting!

Thanks Holly and Kira
<3

IN OTHER NEWS.
I have a shoot in early September for an upcoming online vintage boutique.
And another shoot with the amazing Elly Lucas!

Had a trial evening for hair and make-up for the vintage boutique and it was great! I'm most likely going to be having a beehive on the day. A bit like the ones at the bottom :)

I also have a gorgeous boyfriend.
And I got my GCSE results! I'm unbelievably pleased with what I got - 4A*'s, 3A's and 2B's !
So proud of myself and all my friends for doing so good.

nananananananananananananananana BLOGPOST.

Like the batman entrance?
Thought you would...
SO ANYWAY, once again I am behind on my truths. I am sorry :(
But for once it wasn't laziness getting in my way, it was BUSINESS. Can you believe it?


Right. I'm gonna do it for my brother, as he's the only person who's music tastes I know relatively well and got the most memories with.

The Cranberries - Linger
Pretty obvious one really. Cos it makes me cry. Means a lot and goes back to a very important time in our lives (NO I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT PUBERTY. ALTHOUGH THAT'S AN IMPORTANT TIME TOO)
'You know I'm such a fool for you, you've got me wrapped around your finger'
Does that sound weird?

Beach Boys - Wouldn't it be nice
'Wouldn't it be nice if we were older, then we wouldn't have to wait so long. And wouldn't it be nice to live together, in the kind of world where we belong' RELATABLE LYRICS FTW.

M.I.A - Paper Planes
Just cos it's a really cool song and we have our own little moves for it.

Shakespeare's Sister- Stay
Because it is an AMAZING song, and the women in the video look pretty fiercely strange and awesome too. And as I tried to think of songs for this playlist, I remembered how amazing it was. Oh, and the women have amazing teeth too, and you gotta love people with pearly whites.

Shakespeare's Sister - Hello
AGAIN. Because they have a cool band name, and youtube produced this to me whilst we were still at Turnditch. Just listened to it again, and I remember us liking it, so thought I'd include it too. NOICE. OH OH and the video is sexy, cos the women look amaze.

Marina and the Diamonds- I am not a robot
Predictable song, but - 'You've been hanging with the unloved kids, who you never really liked and you never really trusted' says it all really ay my lovely.

Bombay Bicycle Club - Always like this
Cos I just adore this song. Gives me goosebumps, and that's always a good sign? Our bug song for the future methinks.

Speech Debelle - Daddy's little girl
Cos you were right - it is me.
'Daddy I think I love you, cos I hate you so much I must love you. I put mummy above you, cos she played the position to love me unconditionally like you never have.'
'The way you affect me, I'm constantly fighting to not affect me'
'Like a kiss on the cheek saying 'How was school, old boy?', or 'Happy birthday me, old boy'
But you're still an old boy, grey hair fills your head like an old man.
When your hands start to shake, who's gonna hold your hand?'

Kate Nash -Mariella
Remember you buying the album in Wales, and we sat in the car listening to the album on repeat. We both share a major love for Kate Nash, so this has to be on the playlist.

Mumford and Sons - Winter winds (Or The Cave. Or Little Lion Man. I don't mind, they're all amazing.)
Another Bug song. GORGEOUS. Mumford and Sons came on whilst we were in Jenny, driving down the lane to Greg's mums, with the lovely orange sunset blinding us. Pure bliss. <3
'I will not hear what you have to say. Cos I need freedom now, and I need to know how to live my life how it's meant to be'


My mum was one of those obsessive parent's that never let me out of her sight - exactly the kind of mum I will be, I know it. And I think that's why I'm still here, cos if she hadn't have been like that, I would've done something stupid as a kid.

Woaaaah, depressing. Yes I have, within the last year or two. But I wouldn't. Far too many people rely on me ;) Hahaha only kidding, not really. But I wouldn't do it.


Ah, you know, for once I can say - I've got quite a few good things going for me right now :)
I've got my boy, my modelling is falling into place, and I'm starting college in a couple of weeks. And although it'll all be new and scary, I'm hoping the fear will bring me back to life.


Well, if I got someone pregnant, I'd be mightily impressed with myself firstly.
If someone got me preggers, I'd have to have an abortion. As horrible experience as it is, it's the right thing to do at my age, cos I wouldn't be able to care for it properly. And also that would be my life GONE.

Til next time, my lovely's :)

Exercise? Me? HA!


I went to an exercise class last night!
And oh my lordy lord, it was horrific.

My mother and I stood in the back corner, giggling away at the old women doing "Call on me" video style moves. Thrusting. *Shudders*

To be fair, it was quite fun laughing at the ridiculously enthusiastic instructor bouncing around the room screaming "GRAAAPE VINNEEE!" like some crazy army officer. BUT IT WAS SO PAINFUL. SO SO PAINFUL.

I ache like a bitch this morning too, and no doubt it will get worse tomorrow - they say the second day is the worst, no? God help me.

Mama is making me go next week too.

PITY ME.

A trio of truths.


Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?

Well I do believe I'd do the obvious - cry for a little while, pull myself together, make a card, buy some grapes (every body loves grapes, no?) and make m
y way down to the hospital. I seem to be good at cheering people up, so I'd smile uncontrollably even if I was really sad. I'd say sorry and hope they'd be okay.

Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.

Hmm... I don't like regretting stuff. And, nothing is coming to mind, therefore they must not be too much of a regret. So nothing, I'm okay with how stuff has turned out so far. OH WAIT no, I wish I'd never slapped my mum. It was a one time thing at a party, cos she was drunk and being really horrible. But it was AWFUL of me. Definitely a massive regret and the worst thing I've ever done. So yeah... that.

Day 23 → Something youwish you had done in your life.

I'd say the same as Becca did; I wish that I'd learnt something cool when I was younger. I'd love to be good at ballet, or play guitar. But I'm gonna start that now - I have a guitar, and I'm going to learn Ballet with Becca. It's never too late :) Until you're dead...


Gives us a couple months - this WILL be us.

Loooovess <3

So... ynot go ynot?

THERE IS NO REASON.
THAT IS WHY IT IS CALLED YNOT.

I had a wonderful time at this sexy music fest, as I did last year too! It's a small little gathering (I say small... I mean small on the festival scale... just a couple thousand people) in Derbyshire... and if you haven't been ... why ever not?! Get ya butt down there!


So I'm afraid the following pictures dunnay belong to me, they belong to the sexy beast above ^ Becca. But I do take credit for taking a couple of these.
mwuahhaahahaa.
It was cold and Matt was the only person with a comfy, warm jacket to lend. It happened to be grebby.
DO NOT JUDGE ME :(

Becca fondling Jam. This darn right awesome picture was snapped by myself, soon after Becca attempted to attack Jam with cherry lube.
That's what fest's are all about, no?

Ah, Rosie and Tony.
"You have aids, don't you Tony?"
"Uh-huh"
CLASSIC LINE RIGHT THERE.

So Becca bought us all some stick on, 20p tattoos (LICK/FIND WATER, AND STICK)
Mine totally failed around my wrist, so I attempted a rather "German leader-ish" looking tasche. This also failed.

Taken shortly after the LC! set :)
I was scared, but they were pretty cool.
This picture is pretty impressive to have been taken by a rather drunken Becca.
(FEATHERWEIGHT)


MOOOOOONSHINE.

It was amaaaaze. Hope to see y'all (HANNAH MONTANA, EAT YOUR HEART OUT) next year ;)

I really do need to work out some sort of routine..


FORGIVE ME DEAR 18 FOLLOWERS.

I have been a shocking person to follow, I am sorry.

Here is a list of my reasonings...

1) I've been at YNOT MUSIC FESTIVAL 2010! The most amazing weekend ever! Shall discuss this in a post soon :)
2) I've been busy modelling (oh, don't I sound like a worldly kind of girl?)
3) I'm just a little lazy.

So I am now 9 DAYS behind on my 30 days of truths... this may be a long post.
I understand if you now click the cross in the top right hand corner of your screen, I understand that short and sweet is the way to go in the blogging world - SO I SHALL DO MY BEST.

Kay here goes...
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.

This is a strange one... hm... I'd say my laugh. I have a shockingly bad laugh. Luckily I dunnay snort or things that bad, I just have a bit of an over-excited cackle/giggle that is best off not being heard.

Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)

See I think this is really difficult, as the "tough ass days" that I would relate to, I had no ipod / cd player / tv / internet to hear music on... dammit. But on reflection now, I'd write to Eminem (check me out.. lil miss predictable)

Dear Eminem... firstly, thank you for giving me your address. I promise merely to stalk you on a daily basis, and will refrain from climbing the tree outside your bedroom window, so that I can see you naked. Actually- I can't promise that.
Not only are you the sexiest 37 year old ex-druggy I've ever known, you are also a lyrical genius whom I adore. In all fairness, it has only been over the last couple of months that I've really appreciated your music... but I'm glad I've finally found you! You're realistic, funny, and relatable (I may not have drug problems or a daughter, but I feel ya bro).

Love from Erin. xxx
P.s. Will you run away and get married with me?

Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)

I choose not to get caught up in celebrities, in the fear that they will let me down (ah, the irony). Therefore - I don't need to write anything :)

Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

*TYPICAL GIRL RESPONSE* Chocolate. I've tried, honestly I have. But I literally am a total whorish bitch without my chocolate. Actually - make that more of a whorish bitch. I love it. I just love it. Makes me happy. End of.

Another thing would be MEAT. I tried, for like, 3 days.
I'd love to be veggie, for the principal and general coolness of veggies, but I'm 'fraid I JUST FOOKIN LOVE CHICKEN.

And I couldn't live without my brother, mum and dog. They're all I need :)
OH and chicken noodles.

Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.

Hmm.. I'm sure there's plenty that I could live without...
But whether I'd WANT to live without them, is a different matter. I could live without everything- apart from the obvious i.e FOOD, WATER, WARMTH etc.

but UGH see I feel he doesn't deserve a spot on my blog (no matter how unsuccessful and terrible it may be), but I'll say my dad. I have been, and will continue to, live quite easily without him. Infact, very easily. Infact, it's been a lot easier without him.
If you're reading this, as I'm sure you may be (COCK)... HEY DAD. ><

Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

I can't say I'm a big reader tbh (oh, I'm just so intellectual, aren't I?). So I really can't think of an actual name. I've read a number of books about child abuse (HOW CHEERY) and I think they're always pretty harrowing. But, it's not necessarily changed my views.. just made em a lot stronger I guess.

Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.

This is a silly question. GAY/STRAIGHT/BI means nothing to me.. I couldn't care either way! Being one of those does not make you who you are... as long as you're a good person and kind to people, it makes no difference to me who ya into.
I CANNOT STAND HOMOPHOBES, but equally, I CANNOT STAND STRAIGHTOPHOBES (couldn't remember the correct terminology). Being gay/straight/bi doesn't make you any better or any worse than a different person.

Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?

Politics schmolotics. Means nothing to me, but I guess it's important. But JEEZUS don't we go the wrong way about it? We need to get some younger people into parliament, that actually have some sort of clue on what is going on in the world.

Religion- I'm not religious in any way. In fact (SORRY TO OFFEND ANY RELIGIOUS FOLLOWERS, I'M JUST GIVING POINT OF VIEW) I really loathe religion. I totally understand why people become religious- whether it be because of your general upbringing or just fear. But I honestly don't feel good vibes for religion. I guess I'm more spiritual - I believe in Karma and reincarnation. I believe the Bible is a load of bollocks. And pleeease don't comment on this saying I'm being disrespectful, because I take in everyones point of view, but be prepared for me to challenge you :) Plus I find it equally disrespectful when religious people shove it in your face. I had plenty whilst living with a born-again Christian for four months - MY OH MY THAT WOMAN STRESSED ME OUT. Ironically, her name was Joy. She didn't bring much Joy. In fact she was insanely homophobic, which totally goes against "being created in God's image" and "everyone is equal". See THIS is why I don't like religion - it's completely contradictory.
SORRY I'll stop now, but I could rant for hours. And I promise I'm not just narrow minded - I got A* in RS... I'm just... opinionated (understatement).

Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Haha, what a wonderful question for me :)
Loads of people assume I'm against drinking and drugs, as I dunnay partake in such activities. haha, yet ALL of my friends drink, my family drink, and most of my mates do drugs (they're all so god damn wholesome).
I really don't mind alcohol, unless it changes a person for the worst. I don't like how sometimes my mates become reliant on alcohol for a good time, but I spose I understand why sometimes- It's got them through many an awkward situation, I'm sure. If ya get aggressive or nasty when you're drunk - don't come near me! haha, or if you puke everywhere. Then defo don't come near me! I now refuse to hold people's hair back.

Drugs - mehhhhh. I'm probably more against this. But ya no, do what ya do, just don't get me involved (and please don't die) :)

*
Holy shit, sorry for the insanely long post, I promise to be more consistent in future! :D
Didn't I say that last time?

Vanity truth?


Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

I'm very lucky to have LOVELY friends that compliment me on a few things!
I'd say the main ones would be my hair, eye
s/eyelashes and teeth.
It's always nice to get compliments!
So thank you to anyone who has given me one before :D

People say they want my hair but I'm sure if they have it for more than a couple of days it would start to piss them off! Mine always tickles my face and back whilst I'm trying to sleep. Not cool. Erin likes sleep.

I have been BLESSED with long eyelashes, and I literally would die without mascara. Like.. DIE.
I promise you I look just like this.

I have also been blessed with straight teeth! YAY FOR STRAIGHT TEETH! And they're healthy! Which is always good! I used to have terrible teeth when I was younger because all I drunk was coca cola. I was literally addicted - I got the shakes if I didn't have it! Ridiculous.
I've not had it since and now I'm very thankful they're healthy!

So anyway this post has made me sound a tosser! I'm sorry.

LOVES <3



Just thought I'd post this quickly as it made me smile.

Mum left me a note this morning whilst she was out, saying to wash up, hoover around, tidy my room, and take the rubbish out. That's actually more than I do in a year.

BUT ANYWAY.


Cool mom.com! I think there's a possibility my brother wrote the last bit, but I hope it was my mum cos it's cute lol.

That is all.
Kthanksbye.

Disney love


So just a quick little post! :)

A couple days ago I went to the Disney store! (YAY FOR DISNEY STORE)
And it's safe to say I got a little excited when I saw the Toy Story merchandise!
And The Little Mermaid merchandise!
And Tinkerbell merchandise!

Okay so I basically ran around like a 5 year old and got excited about EVERYTHING.Here is a quick picture, caught in the midst of my excitement.


Soon after this stunning photo was taken, the shop lady told us off for taking photos.
MADNESS.

You know what else is insane?
THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL MERCHANDISE.


Now that is just unforgivable, no?

Looveesss <3

multiple.

I must I must sort out a routine so that I don't give you these truths all in one go... I think it may defy the point. I'm sorry :(

Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living.

Gonna be all soppy, predictable and say my momma. My mum, brother and I are rock solid (init bruv) and they make my life worth living. We keep each other strong and look after each other, even if I do fall out with my brother a lot haha :)

*SOCIAL SUICIDE MOMENT* - my mum is pretty much my best friend. I can talk to her about everything (at the risk of being mocked) and she makes me laugh all the time. I don't know what I'd do without her!

Now... tell me the truth - did that sound like a Disney speech?

*

Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.

My Dad... n'uff said.
*
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

Hm that's difficult :( I think people have drifted but for the right reasons I guess. My old crowd at school used to be really close, but then I drifted from them because I already had a lot of drama at home and it was too tiring to have it at school too, so I sort of shifted over to a group that I knew were simple and there wouldn't be any complicated emotions involved. I think some of my old group were really offended and started to hate me for it cos they thought I was a traitor or something haha but I think it happened for the right reasons and now we're probably better friends for it. I hope they don't hate me now anyway :)

*

Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

Ummmmmmmmmmm...
Errrmmm...
Hm.
Difficult AGAIN.

Thanks a bunch whoever made these truths.

I don't think I know anyone/hang out with anyone who I particularly dislike. I choose to surround myself with people that I actually like, so I'm glad I know all of them.


That's it for today :)
Thanks for reading!

So I came across the preview for Primark's 2010 Autumn collection!
I'm not normally a primark fan but I think some of these outfits are pretty cute!
Check them out...




Cashmere fur collar coat £49. Stack heel platform £15. Cable heart over the knee socks £1.50.
I love this outfit because I think it looks simple and classy. It also looks quite expensive for primark, but it's pretty affordable.



Navy military cape £25. Wet look legging £7. Chunky cable arm warmers £3. Grey over the knee socks £2. Black lace ankle boots £15.
I might just have to buy this outfit! Those ankle boots are so cute, and I love the Military style cape. I'd be weary of buying it though, as it's quite a statement and I'd be worried that as it's from Primark, everyone will have it!



Snowflake jacket £17. Jacquard roll neck £17. Chunky knit snood £4. Chunky knit arm warmers £3. Jeans £8. Faux shearing bag £6. Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50. Punch out hiking boots £20.
Doesn't this just look like the most comfy and snuggly outfit ever? I can really imagine wearing this to college in winter time, and it's so afforable! Love the snood and snowflake jacket/jumper!



Heart fob shorts £10. Pussy bow blouse £10. Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50. Punch out hiking boots £20.
Those boots are just to die for! They use them a lot in these photos, and they look great with all the outfits! I must-have, I say.



Parka jacket £21. Military dress £13. Woven metal buckle belt £3. Punch out hiking boots £20. Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50.
I heart that parka!



Faux fur trapper £5. Floral mix and max tunic £10. Faux fur belted gillet £17. Ribbed over the knee socks £1.50. Knee-high zip boot £18
Doubt I could get away with this outfit - but it's cute nonetheless!



Must say I quite like them and may possibly be venturing to Primark this Autumn...

Will you?
