Aye Aye Captain

I've been at my dad's over the weekend, so that is the reason for the lack of updates. Anyway I've been looking for a new winter coat, seen asthought its getting cold now and I'd like to only have to wear a coat instead of layers of hoodies. I was checking out TopShops website, and I came across this adorable coat

The Front

The Back

I love that it has the cute sailor collar attached to it. This coat is just adorable!!

What Do You Mean, 'You Think You Can'

Just got back from Kickboxing, and wow am I tired, I think I need a brew. So todays training was really good. We were working though some combinations for the grading on December 12th. To achieve my Green Belt I've got to...

I'm not sure if I'm ready to do another grading. I mean after the ordeal of the last grading!! Plus I'm a little worried about the sparring section of the grading, because I hate sparring!! Although the techniques look fun. I've practised the first and second combinations, and I've got to say, I love the first combination, I love how it flows, like how you drop after the right kick and strike with the elbow, flows really well.

I just wish I had the money to practise, because I would be there practising like a mad man! Its not like I have anything better to do. I'm really gonna try and practice more often.

Busy Monday Morning

I just bought 3 cartons of orange juice for. . . . 56p!! That means I bought 3 for the average price of 1 carton of orange juice. Its from Netto, tastes really good and is only 56p, how can you argue with that??

I also popped into Wigan, to pick up some forms for a drivers licence (because it's about time I got one). Bought something from Primark (almost bought 2 somethings). Bought an XL green Arizona top, that I'm gonna attempt to recon. It only cost £3 and its seems decent quality. The other thing I almost bought (Thank god I didn't have my bank card with me) was this cute hooded jacket, which came in a mustard colour or a shiny blue, it looked adorable, and it only cost £18!! I think I'm gonna have to get it!!

Hi, My Name Is...

Man I want this game!!

I mean, how incredibly does this look!! From what I've seen there's a pretty decent song list on this game, and no doubt there will be more available from the marketplace.

Although to be fair, I'd rather spend extra money and get the Renegade Edition, because the turntable looks so much nicer
I know what I'm gonna be asking Santa for this year!!

Your Only Surpose To Blow The Bloody Doors Off

If there is one actor that should make us truly proud to be English, its Micheal Caine. I mean the man is incredible. To me he is the perfect gentleman, an amazing voice and mannerisms, the guy has aged incredibly well, and need I say, an amazing actor. And may I say, he truly deserves his title of Sir Micheal Caine.

I especially love him as Alfred from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, I could not think of anyone who could of played that role half as well as he did. He was absolutely perfect in that role!! I can not put down in words how much I like him.

What has sparked this is I watched him on 'This Morning' and I just sat in awe as I listened to his stories.

So I'm not sure what to do with myself right now. I'm so tired right now and I've already had too naps!! Must of been the crazy-ness of last nights shift.

There's a lovely new cape pattern on BurdaStyle. Its $4, so I may treat myself to the pattern.

I mean who could resist that!

Outfit Of The Week

This is more of a evening outfit!!

I am loving the lace dresses that are in the shops lately and the boyfriend blazers. And that flower cuff is cute as a button!! Also,, how much of a bargain are them shoes!!!

We Are Family

So I haven't updated in a while, but hey, give me a break I've had a pretty rocky week since Wednesday...

But something that has cheered me up...

BioShock 2

I've been watching the trailers off the website. Man that game looks awesome. I mean the 1st one blow me away,, but this one,, Wow. I cannot wait for this game! I have to admit that I am pretty freaked out by this game though!! I love the era it is set in 1940's (ish) so I was instantly drawn to this film, and then as the storyline progressed I fell in love with it. So clearly I hold a touch for the first Bioshock, and by the looks of Bioshock 2's trailers, I'm gonna love the second one just as much.

The storyline looks good. Playing as a Big Daddy should be fun!! I like how they have reversed it from the first storyline. Hmmm,, but now that I'm playing on of the biggest predators from the first game,, surely there will be nothing worse than me out there?!? WRONG!! Turns out the enemy in this game is the Big Sisters,, and them things look nasty!! They are like a slimmed down version of the Big Daddy's but instead of the large drill for an arm, they have one of the Adam needles (I'm guessing) that the little sisters carry around. So they should make for a fun enemy!!

There's now even online multi-player games. There's 'Capture The Sister' In which, u have to capture little sisters and take them back to there little whole in the wall. And then the other multi-player game can only be described as Call Of Duty meets Nightmare On Elm Street. Just a free for all of slicers killing each other.

The game is set to be release
February 9 2010
and I will be counting down the days!!

Anyway check out the website to view the trailers
Also give this review a read its pretty good!
