“A grown-up is a child with layers on.” Woody Barrelson

I have to remind myself sometimes that change is good. Growing up means I'm advancing and getting better at things (hopefully). As soon as I sit still and think, I freak myself out about all these responsibilites and new things that are happening. 

I've got the job I wanted, a new house to move into, a new car to start thinking about, a new single life I am totally not used to and plenty of old memories to erase. Maybe not erase, but push away for a while. This growing up malarky is pretty scary when I think about it. It all seems to have happened so quickly and I haven't had time to catch up with it yet! 

Let the whirlwind begin.


No television series aimed at young people is complete without a soundtrack full of attitude and Gossip Girl is no exception. Here are a few tracks from the show before I hit you with the fashion:

Another reason I love Gossip Girl is the fashion. Alongside the storylines, the beautiful characters and the music; it is the fashion that keeps people watching to see what they will wear next. Each character has a different type of style to fit their personality and I've enjoyed seeing their clothes change across the series.

Blake Lively is just as stylish off screen as she is when playing Serena (above). Her character is a hopeless romantic who never knows what she wants. I can definitely sympathise with that! Blake's red carpet style is all about the glamour. With a body like that who can argue?!

Blake will be playing a very different character in upcoming film 'The Town' and I'm already excited to see the film. Not only does it look great but it will be interesting to see if I can watch her in something else without associating her with Gossip Girl. 

Trailer is here!

So I'll finish this blog with a picture that encapsulates a few of my favourite things.

Ice cream, friendship and cute clothes.
