Monday Eye Candy

Another Monday Eye Candy for you all, I did a post last week about Ed Westwick whom I love for being Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl, but originally the man who stole my heart in the first season was Chace Crawford or Nate Archibald to those who love Gossip Girl.

He's kind of my preppy indulgence as he started out as an A&F model and moved onto better things, I can't think off the top of my head what else he's been in but who cares when he's on our Gossip Girl screens every week?

Here's your 5 minutes of escapism for the day, just look at him!



{This has been my background on our Mac at home since the first season began of Gossip Girl, I really loved him!}

Maybe one day I'll do a Monday Eye Candy for the male readers of my blog, but I'm not sure how likely that would be, there's still so many gorgeous men to perk up our boring Mondays!

'Once you get the feeling, it wants you back for more'

Tomorrow I'm going to see Bombay Bicycle Club at Alexandra Palace in Victoria with my little sis and I couldn't be more excited. I've loved Bombay for a long long time and I saw them briefly at my summer ball at university, they hold a special place in my heart and I am buzzing with excitement for tomorrow.

The location will make it feel so special as well, Ally Pally is gorgeous and I simply cannot wait! The support is Rae Morris who I found from Burberry Acoustic and chat about her a bit here

Anyway here are a few of my favourite videos from the band, old and new. Their videos are always so cool so make sure you watch the videos as well as listen to the beautiful music!

{I can't wait to hear Shuffle and jump around like a loon}

{Always Like This}

{Lights Out, Words Gone - perfect summer tune}

{My God - his voice is just beautiful}

{Still - beautifully simple continuous video, a real goosebumps on your arm song}

{Dust on the Ground - Watch Listen Tell acoustic version}

{Ivy and Gold - cute acoustic version, party included}

This weekend is so incredibly busy, I'm going to two 21st birthdays as well as this gig, the trains better be nice to me this weekend! Next week I'll tell you all about my weekend and my GlossyBox came today (yay!) so I'll do a post on what goodies I got in my box! Have a lovely weekend whatever you're doing!!

Summertime is Everything

I'm sure I'm not the only one when I say I am truly bored of rain and cold. Surely the sun should be coming out by now? Living in Bournemouth is both brilliant and torturous for weather, when it's good it's amazing, days on the beach in the sun is everything a girl wants. But when the weather's awful and you see what potential that beach has it makes you want to cry.

I have just over a month until my family holiday to Cyprus and it can't come quickly enough, I need some sun injected into my life!

So I have decided to pretend that it's sunny by looking at gorgeous pictures of summer and imagine I'm there. I've even started a list of things I want to do when it's sunny and hot outside, it's very therapeutic I'd suggest trying it!

Look at these photos and stick on 'We're all going on a summer holiday' and you'll feel a little sun on you, even if it's just for a few minutes.

{Summer roadside}

{Summer evenings}

{Perfect festival shorts}

{Ray Bans, the summer essential}

{Bunting and blue skies}

{Feeling the sun on your skin}

{Chilling by the lake}

{Mad hair in the sun}

{Reminds me of point to points}

{Sitting on your window sill with a good book and gorgeous boat shoes}

{I think you can tell I'm a fan of the old lens flare}

{Cycling in summer}

{Tanning in a row}

{Can't wait until I don't have to wear a jumper ALL THE TIME!}

{Reminds me of summer at school, making daisy chains}


{Wish I was there}

{Afternoon Tea Teepee}

{Summer deck shoes}

{Loving Ray Bans}

{Isn't this just the best sight on holiday?}

{Relaxing in the sun is not a waste of time}

Happy Gloomy Thursday everyone!

I'm pretty sure most people have heard of this website but I don't feel like I've managed to get the most out of it because barely any of my friends are on there.

Basically for those who don't know what it is, it's a music tracker which shows your friends what you're listening to and your favourite artists (its kind of like that old MSN 'What I'm Listening To' thing but a big step up). You get recommended music from what you listen to and you can find some pretty cool people. Your profile looks something like this:

I'm on a bit of a Stevie Wonder loop at the moment!

This is where it tells you who your top artists are and the pictures are on a continuous loop so your profile looks different everyday. Yes unfortunately Bieber is on there, I had a bit of a phase last year, I'm trying to wipe him out slowly but surely!! You can also love songs and they'll come up more often when you play your library radio.

You can get the app onto your computer so you don't need to go on the website. It'll always be open counting your 'scrobbles' from iTunes, Spotify and whenever you plug in your iPod. It also goes straight onto the different radios you can listen to.

Its a great little website and you can find some cool new music on there which is the main perk, theres so many free downloads of new music on the website it's silly. So please join and add me so I can stalk all of your music tastes, I'm Springett91!

iPhone Wallpapers

I've recently switched back to my old iPhone temporarily as I've misplaced my BlackBerry charger!

I haven't been on this phone for so long that it needed a severe update (DrawSomething has become a new obsession!) but mainly all my pictures needed an update for wallpapers on my phone.

Thankfully Pinterest has come to the rescue once again, I used the app to save my pins and it all went onto my camera roll. Anyway enough of the boring stuff, here's the pretty pictures! I've been kind enough to test each picture to make sure it works as your lock wallpaper!

{Alternative mode of travel}

{Cable Cars}

{Little reminder everyday}

{Phone on a phone}

{Macaroons, again..}

{Twinkle at night}

{Tickled Pink}

{This doesn't really fit the lock screen that well, but it's a bloody good saying!}

{Just touched down in London town. My current wallpaper}

{Blue door}

{Bow ties, for the men}

{Ryan Gosling. Sorry this had to be done}
