Hi I'm Michaela and I'm an addict

I have a confession I am a bit of a YouTube addict, I admit it. 

I watch a lot more daily vlogs, silly sketches and amazing proposals than TV, this may be due to the fact that I don't own one, never the less you cannot beat your daily does of ShayCarl or some Le Floof Tv.

Therefore after a slow Friday in the office I was glad to find another wee quirky gem. It's a bit cheesy, but had me in tears by the end, I have my overly emotional moments... weeks.

Caine is inspiring, I love when kids surprise us and aren't what we expect of them.

If you have a spare 10 minutes... and 59 seconds give this a watch.

I need to get one of those fun cards. I'm dragging the man on a trip to our local arcade next week. I have already saved 102 tickets, oh yes 102 from my last adventure. It turns out all I could get was a lollypop. I feel that at Caine's I may have gotten at least a ball!!

Collection of my favourite tumblr findings

Here are a collection of some of my favourite tumblr findings over the last few months, sorry i don't have any sources for them. Some are overly sentimental you have been warned, the last few months have had a lot of highs and lows for me. However i have learned from my mistakes, just and looking forward to a fresh year ahead, enjoy the cheese!!

Its scary how true this is and how little we think about it

I always say to people that actions speak louder than words as i hate the word sorry, therefore this is perfect!

Let go of all the worries as its better to know the outcome rather than regret not trying. I always mess up as i don't want to be hurt, this is what i'm slowly learning anyway :S you just need to give it all to work, its better to have love and lost than never to have loved at all!
Only a few more lovey dovey ones i promise :P

This one is for every girl reading this, as its true, don't let one meanie or mistake turn your back on hope! Or even worse think any less of yourself :D

And this is the truth so therefore remember the above statement! (ps. had to just fit in two of my favourite people)

This is the year for change, i have graduated, gotten a job, now its time to make the most of it and start having fun again. I believe and hope this year will be a good year :)

Lets hope for some travelling, especially Rome, i'm sure i know a man or two who may be talked around to an adventure or two :D

Hopefully somewhere as epic as this.

So men listen up (stolen from Postsecret)

And for the rest of us, we should all keep this in mind!!

Lets make it a good one!!

Q. Quote from a movie: I love quotes from movies, they just stick with me. My recent favourite is...
2 days in Paris: "It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much. When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story. I really love this one. When I think that its over, that I'll never see him again like this... well yes, I'll bump into him, we'll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we'll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost. Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drink up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well. There's a moment in life where you can't recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else's kisses."

Pictures really can speak a thousand words

If i could spend my life looking at photos, just scanning the internet for one that makes me smile i really believe i would be happy. I can spend hours doing it in silence alone, it is the perfect pastime.

Which is odd as i hate going somewhere are seeing people with cameras plastered to their hards and faces, if you want to remember something just look with your eyes, you made the effort to go there, if you wanted to see it through a sheet of glass check the TV out or the internet. Silly i know, rant over.

Even though i had the rant, glad they took the time to waste the experience to let me look back and enjoy.

Here is a mini collection of my favourites i have found along my interweb travels.

My love for the Beatles is well known, and this picture, is amazing!!

So simple and classic, i love how someone sat down and took the time to do this.

Definition of my whole blog right here, somewhere to talk and not to care as long as i'm happy!!

Inspiration for a new tattoo????

I love the whole Keep Calm thing at the moment, and feel in love this idea, yes i used the world love too much.

When i was younger i told my parents i wanted to be a hippy when i was older, if only i had followed my dreams...

What more needs to be said?

Back to the Keep Calm idea, something we all should do, says i :P

I have been really overly happy lately and wish there was more messages in the world like this so everyone else would be as well!!]

What can i say, i love horror movies!! Just need to find someone to watch them with.

Read and learn

Made me think of an old but new friend, hope they agree!

Valentines day, why the sad face??

I know that people get all moody around this time of year, and I don't get it personally. I know I have a boyfriend and that is why people may say it is not the same, but even when I have been single I have still enjoyed the day for what it is.

It was so nice tonight walking back from the library seeing young men dressed smart, for a change, with bunches of roses and assortments of colourful bouquets, it just made me smile. The women waiting outside restaurants waiting to be wooed and when I looked up there were lanterns flying in the sky that couples had lit in the meadows. How could you not love this day, people just seem so happy, well most do, even small business owners closing early to see loved ones. The particularly moody ones tend to stay in to avoid the cheery members of society, therefore win win. They can stay in and moan and happy people, including single happy people, can smile at all the little things throughout the day.

Valentines day is different to me as I make my friends celebrate name day, as the Italians do. Therefore being a Valentine, I get to smile for one more reason. Not just the fact I got three Valentines day cards, albeit that two where from my amazing flatties.

Mind you after saying all that, I prefer to celebrate Valentines Day early with my boyfriend to avoid all the other couples to make it more special. Last year we decided to go and see Alice in wonderland at Bedlam and this year I was treated to Annie at the playhouse. I was soo happy. It was amazing; we were in the second row as well.

No matter where you are or who you are with, I hope you are all enjoying the love of everyone, including family and friends.

End of the medium as we know it

I’m up at a ridiculous time due to the fact I have a Skype interview today and haven’t prepped at all, never mind prepped, I haven’t decided what to wear?? My lovely sale FCUK dress, or a smart blue shirt??

Enough about that, what I woke up to was my loaded megavideo of Medium, little did I know my last ever loaded video of Medium. 

Why did I not know this to prepare myself?? Why do I not religiously follow digital spy like my flatmate to avoid disappointment.

Well actually I was happy with the ending, even if it was all over the place. I admit I knew something big was going to happen as Patricia Arquette’s lovely brother was in this series and they would have used him unless it was near the end.

Mmmmmm David Arquette

No wait my new celebrity crush is Luke Wilson, don’ t ask me why, god know my boyfriend wants to know why, but I have decided he is the type of man I shall marry. 

Actually it could be the fact that I watched legally blonde on iPlayer not to long ago, and recently purchased Family Stone on ebay a few days ago. I hope it is as bad as I remember.

Well onto today, I have my interview, then de-stress, hopefully purchase some Barry M nail effect and then go see Annie. A perfect Valentines Day present, I couldn’t have been more surprised. But saying this, he has no idea what he has let himself in for, all he knows is that she is a red head.

New to this, aren't we all?

Well to the life off a blog.

I have recently become a tad obsessed with reading blogs, especially SailorJennie

And from my obsession I have moved on to a love of ebay trying to get some of the amazing outfits I have found on blogs, and I have been lucky, yay!

Well actually my boyfriend wouldn't call it lucky, he isn't impressed with my new ebay love!!

My new love of blogs is the realisation that it is a much easier way to find out what to blow my wages on. There is nothing better than finding a blog of a girl with the sameish style and shape as you. 

It is a goldmine, they should definitely have sections like that in my lovely trashy/amazing magazines, it would be sooo much more helpful.

Also on obsession I might as well tell you about my new one of mad men. I am in love, 3 series in just over a week, now that is what I call a problem. 

Now to persuade my flatties to have a Mad Men theme dinner party, I get to be Joan, I don't care if I am only half the woman she is but a girl can still have fun :D

With this skirt I do believe I will be on my way! Now just to persuade my boyfriend, then I can buy it and then move myself into my dimension where I get to be in the 50s.
