1. Neon colours are taking over the shops. It's making me have 80's flashbacks.
2. 'Jelly Belly' jelly beans are ridiculously addictive little things.
3. When I don't wear any wrist jewellery, I keep feeling like I'm missing something.
4. Waking up at 5:00am is never a good idea....ever
5. Pretty Little Liars is a really cool TV show (Have no idea why I only discovered it now).
6. Wearing calf length boots over skinny jeans makes me feel like a superhero.
7. Change can be scary, but sometimes scary can be good.
8. According to some film critics these are the top 50 greatest films of all time.
9. Even on a really bad day, there is still just so much to be positive about.
10. This was my favourite tweet of the week:  'I think if more people took glitter seriously the need for Prozac would cease to exist.' - by @ManRepeller

What have you learnt recently? 


  1. I wake up at 5am every day. :/

  2. Megs - How do you do it? I's struggle. I probably go to sleep waaay too late, so thats also the issue.

  3. LOVE that quote! so so true! have a good weekend :) xx

  4. Love it - I also feel like a superhero with boots over jeans or leggings. Lol.

  5. Change can indeed be scary but it also reminds us how adaptable we can be.

    I have the same addiction to Haribo sweets that you have to jelly beans. Who would have thought that sugar, gelatin and flavourants could be so addictive hehe!

  6. 5. PLL is my fav show on television. Ha, and no, I'm not 15.

    7. I posted this on the Pretty Please FB page a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't agree more. Good for you for making the change!

    10. That was my FAV tweet of the week too and I just saw it yesterday. So funny!

    Have a great night my long lost South African sister (I'm convinced!) :)

  7. I am kinda loving the neon trend ;) Pretty Little Liars is a really great show and the fashion is pretty good too, I like Troian and Lucy Hale's style, not to mention so many hotties in the series too! Thanks for the movie link, going to check that out, and Lol, great tweet!

  8. Agree with 3,5,6 and 7!!! Could never wake up at 5am that would be torture to me but then again my sleeping patterns are quite messed up due to freelance and studies. Bed time is 2am and wake-up at 10am, definitely not a morning person ;)

  9. Great list! I wake up at 5:00 every day also, except this past week I've been waking up between 3:00-3:30... well, I've been woken up at those un-Godly hours. My cat Bridget has been waking me up, because she wants attention. She picks the worst times for that. Once I'm awake, I can't get back to sleep. The sad part is I usually go to bed between 10:00 and midnight. Normally, I'm up by 5:00 and I love it! LoL. I love getting up before the sun comes up and have my coffee and blog early in the morning, that's when I seem to be most inspired.

    I too love Pretty Little Liars, but I've missed this entire season, I don't even know if it's still on. I've just been so swamped. As for the films, I have never seen any of the movies from that list and I'm pretty sure there are way better movies than the ones they picked. I've seen other Alfred Hitchcock movies that I think are better than what they picked. I have heard of Citizen Kane and those before our time might agree with it being in the top 2, but not our generation, I don't think anyway. So, I don't know who they polled, but obviously not everyone in the world. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure movies like E.T., The Goonies and although I can't stand this movie, I'm shocked the Titanic isn't on that list. It almost always makes those lists. LoL. Anyway, I'm like a huge movie buff... I love movies!

    Oh and I love Jelly Belly's and Neon. I wonder, do they have neon colored Jelly Belly's? I'm sure they do, but I've never seen them, if they don't they should.

    Well, I'm Sarah, I'm new to your awesome blog! I love the look and feel, it looks fabulous! My blog is Skylar Magazine, feel free to stop by anytime!

    Thanks and have an awesome day!
