Heyyy sorry to have been so bad with keeping up my blogging act life has been far too hectic for my liking. A lot has been going on since my last blog, I finished my first proper week at work experience it was amazing!! I had a really great experience, on the night I arrived I went to Notting Hill for some drinks with the lady I was staying with.

This is just going to be a quick post today as I'm due to depart for London in a few hours and it's all a bit hectic really! I have packed for my week of work experience as best as I can as I'm really not sure what will be worn in the office.
Right so with the end of Big Brother see's a decade of television disappear, I wrote an opinion piece before the show ended and I thought it would be right to post it now as the show has finished, so here goes hope you enjoy:
So with the end of Big Brother nigh what does this mean for the future of reality television? BB as it has been referred to through its airing decade has consumed screens for far too long now.
The BB phase that has taken over the nation’s hearts is finally closing its curtains for the last time. About time too, that curtain needs to stay firmly sealed, the reality series has well and truly strung itself out. Going from BB to Celebrity BB and then a whole show called BBLB about the live show, how many plugs can you get?
Celebrities soon jumped on the bandwagon when the series starting taking off, it was a way to get back in the limelight and rejuvenate a sour career. So much so that the show actually started creating celebrities, through their appearance on the much-watched show. Some of the most prominent celebrities to come out of the programme are: Jade Goody, Brian Dowling and Pete Bennett. All of whom were handpicked because of their quirkiness and what they brought to the show.
After summer’s consumed with non-stop live streaming of the ‘housemates,’ viewers have continuously been glued to the screen year after year. Is it really interesting to watch the housemates cooking dinner or showering? It has clearly entertained the nation for far too long. Although a drop in ratings has ultimately caused the axe of the series, it’s been a long run for Channel 4.
BB has always set the stakes as to what is acceptable in reality television, whilst causing controversy along the way. The Jade Goody vs. Shilpa Shetty racism debate meant the show was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. It was publicized to the extreme with excessive news coverage, it questioned the sanctity of such a show on television. Even after Jade Goody passed away following her battle with cancer her legacy remains that she shot to fame through Big Brother.
But following the tenth and final series of BB will shows like Coach Trip and Come Dine With Me soon faze out and drop off the radar? The Hills is also coming to an end as it reaches its sixth and concluding season, a show that blurs the lines between reality and scripted drama. Is it really time to get rid of all these shows that everyone seems so fascinated with, if so what’s next?
I think anything that tries to replace such shows will be a shambles; they’ve run their course and now its time to move on. Big Brother will no longer be bringing Divina dressed in… surprise surprise black to our screens anymore. What will replace a highly renowned series? Channel 4 needs to pull spectacular something out of the bag if they’re to keep viewers switching on.
Much love x x

I know I only blogged last night but felt I had enough material to go ahead and blog again tonight, I have been flicking through the weekly magazines today and also online shopping with my eyes of course! I enjoy lusting over something and then when you finally get it you appreciate it so much more but recently my lust for some shorts got too much and I was about to give way and buy them. And then what do you know it, my size is sold out! I even bookmarked the website I was that keen haha!

Well the bob and innocent scenario came to a grinding head today. I was finally confronted (over facebook of course) because saying things behind a screen is a far better way of releasing your frustrations right?! No I don't think so. Anyway bob went about contacting me and accusing me of talking about her when I was out last night (i have nothing better to do you see).... this of course is a load of BS to put it mildly. I really couldn't give a damn about what the girl is doing and who she is doing it with.

The drama seems to have calmed since my last update, bob is no longer a part of my life or any of my friends! I had a great few days recently when I took a road trip down to Southampton, it was one of my best friends and also house mates birthday Ryan.. He was celebrating his tweenteen (he's a bit touchy about no longer being a teenager) birthday. And a messy time was had by all, if I say dancing on the kitchen worktops you can probably understand just how messy it was. We well and truly christened our house :)
I purchased a new dress for the occasion (it had to be done) a white lacy number (i will attach a picture for those of you who may care to see), which I later found was bang on the lace trend of white/cream dresses (similar to wedding dresses in a way) which was featured in Look magazine. I apologise for the belt not being centrally positioned I was under the influence at this stage lol. So I felt relatively pleased with myself after finding that out, I don't tend to follow trends but I buy pieces that suit me and my figure. Like I would not touch a maxi dress as being 5ft 2" I know it would drown me, and skyscraper wedges COULD potentially save such an outfit but I think wearing stilts really is too far haha!

Right well in the last week my life seems to be consumed in drama, I often joke and say I feel like I accompanied by my friends could create a juicy episode of the Hills (which I love)!! But NO joke me and my friendlings have enough material to complete an entire series..... (Thanks to Mtv for the image)

Sorry for the lack of loving, life always seems so hectic... Since my last post I have been to crete with my best friend, it was great just chilling and sunbathing (of course)! Also went out to London for a friends birthday, I still don't know what to think about it.. I had a good time but I didn't get how we were able to get into the club and drink for free?? If anyone would care to enlighten me on how this works then feel free to help me out, because I certainly seem to be struggling.
