It's A Little Bit Funny

Friday, 9 September 2011

Sorry it's been a while since my last post, but I've been super busy spending time with my friends and family and re-packing for uni. I always find you don't realise how much stuff you have until you have to pack for uni! I'm moving into a gorgeous flat in Birmingham this weekend and I am so excited!!! I feel so grown up! I don't know how long we'll be without internet, so I might try to schedule some posts otherwise I probably won't have another post on here for a few weeks.

One of the martini cocktails and one of many wine buckets dotted around the table

Last Friday, it was my friend's 21st birthday and we went to Thirst in SoHo to celebrate. It was a quaint little bar, which had a fabulous selection of yummy cocktails. It was really cool watching the bar staff making them from scratch and even cooler trying a tonne of different ones! It was super busy in the bar and there was a little bit of drama where the bar manager upset the birthday girl because he'd promised a reserved area for 8pm and there were people refusing to leave it... After almost two hours, we finally got given the reserved area and he felt bad, so he gave us 5 bottles of free wine! At the time, we thought this was brilliant... The next morning, not so much! I love spending time with my school friends when we're all back home :) I sometimes worry that it might be awkward because we don't see each other during term time, but it always feels like we've never left school and I always find myself feeling stupid for worrying for no reason!

I was listening to music on Youtube earlier and came across One Direction's new song. I didn't think I would like it, but omgosh I actually love it! It's super catchy and I love the video!

After listening to this, I decided to search this year's X Factor Auditions and came across Janet Devlin's personal Youtube where she's uploaded covers of a number of songs. Her voice is actually amazing! My favourite cover she's done has to be 'Your Song', which she did for her audition. I hope she does well throughout the contest. Whenever I watch X Factor, I always feel rather talentless and it kind of makes me sad and I hate to admit it, kind of jealous! I don't know if that makes sense, but does anyone else ever feel like that?

Sorry for the long rambles! Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy


  1. I'm a closet 1D fan - really love the song, but the bit where harry is singing to that girl makes me cringe a little bit. Maybe i'm jealous....! x

  2. I love 1D's song too - can't get it out of my head! <3 That cocktail looks amazing. I'm hopefully going to be making some later! xoxo

  3. @Sarah - I'm glad I'm not the only one!! Haha, it does look a little bit awkward at that point. But you're right, maybe we're jealous! Hehe!! I kind of wish I was younger so I had more excuse of being a fangirl :P xx

    @Kate Louise - I can't either! It's so catchy! It was rather yummy :) Ooh, that sounds exciting! xx

  4. I love this song :)
    & those cocktails look rather yummy!! x

  5. @Rachel - Sorry for the late reply! I still love it now, even though I've heard it a million times! That was luckily one of the yummy ones! Some of them looked nice but were a bit gross, lol. xx
