#TV taught me how to feel, now real life has no appeal!



Sorry for the late post, but this blog is looking rather naked to me and I can't go to sleep leaving it in this vulnerable state!

Alex got back from his mini holiday to the seaside with his buddies, so we've been having a lovely night but he's dozing off now, so I'm blogging live from bed!

I don't talk about music much on here, if ever, because I'd never tell anyone what they should be listening to or anything like that. But I do have a music-related fixation lately and purely for style value, I'm going to spam you with some pretty Marina Diamandis videos and pics! She fronts the band Marina and the Diamonds, and although her music and style aren't my usual 'thing', there's just something so fun about it that I can't help but love.

I kind of think of Marina as Britain's answer to Katy Perry (♥). Fun music, batshit crazy fashion sense and let's face it, great boobs!

Here's Marina and the Diamonds' video for their new single I can't get out of my head, as well as a previous one that I think is just lovely.




Sleep time now!! Back tomorrow :)

  1. Are those bebaroque tights she's wearing in the third picture?

    I frigging love Marina's sense of style...and her figure is uhmaze. Really though...that robot song plays so much in the shop that it does make me want to bash my head off the counter until I black out.

  2. i adore marina diamondis. i heard her on bbc2 last summer with some batshit crazy song called "mowgli's road" which is utterly glorious and you should totally check it out!
    she's brilliant :) and wonderfully kooky. i'm glad we have a couple of quirky brits in the charts, nestled in amongst the american r'n'b stars.

  15. I love her! It's not normally the kinda music i listen to either but i love all the songs i've heard, my favourite at the moment of hers is hollywood (i think that's the name!) it plays at my work and it makes me want to sing along but that would just torture people!

  17. squee! I randomly saw her at Bestival last year on...you can't even call it a stage, she was just stood in front of us performing. So good! I love seeing people just before they hit the big time. She wore an amazing waistcoat, got a snap of it in this post:
