Everyone seems wrapped up in X Factor at the moment. Most people have something to say, whether it's good or bad. Everyone has an opinion, even if it's just a comment on Simon Cowell or Cheryl Cole. 

Cher - I've not been very sure about her act, especially the rapping, but I've been interested in what she's been wearing each week. Even though I would never wear it, I think she's setting a trend and I've definitely seen a few Cher-a-likes walking around town. She seems to have had her image toned down recently and it's definitely made me warm to her more. She looks better with less make up and just her voice on show.

My favourite performance so far.

I'm not a Wagner fan but I do feel sorry for him because he's clearly being exploited and it's gone a bit too far now! 
I love Matt Cardle and Rebecca Ferguson and really hope one of them wins. They both have true talent and I always love when they don't have tons of confidence because you can relate to them a little bit more. Rebecca is also turning into a bit of a fashion icon. I absolutely adore the polished look; perfect hair, eyelashes, nails and THAT voice. 

Cheryl is still the true star! 

A few of my favourite tunes at the moment...

Here's a screen shot from Sunday Girl -Stop Hey.

I know it's only November but I'm thinking about the year that has just passed and how different I feel now compared to this time last year. Back then, I was loved up with a boyfriend, in the middle of teacher training, living in a tiny flat with rubbish flatmates and generally a little bit muddled. Fast forward to this year and I'm single (but happier), got a job working at a really good school, living in a nice house, nearly able to drive and just generally feeling better in myself. This has been one of the hardest years of my life so far in terms of stress and uncertainty but I've reached the end of the year feeling better about it all and like things are on the up!

Here is a mini montage of 2009:

I feel like a different person compared to that. 

A few things I've got up to this year alongside pictures might go some way to showing what it's been like.
