YouTube, Cats, Taylor Swift, and a Vlog??

So, tonight I managed to finish work at just gone 6! That hasn't happened in a while. This is another super-quick post, because (as always) there is probably something I'm meant to be doing. I just need to remember what it is.
For the past hour (whilst I should have been paying some attention to my extremely neglected blog), I have been vegging out on YouTube. This involved something like starting with a Cute Cat Falling Asleep and watching so many suggested videos that you end up watching the adorable JacksGap and Marcus Butler compliment people with a megaphone.
Another thing I have watched recently is Taylor Swift's latest music video. Pretty dark. Well, for Swift it is, anyway. But refreshing, though. I'm still guessing who it's about, and my latest theory is John Mayer, but I'm probably wrong.
P.S Last but NOT least Thank You! For reading my blog, that is. I'm getting on for 1,000 page views! So yeah, thank you. I would love it if you could share this with friends, or just anyone who you think will like this. As ever, comment, follow my blog and let me know if you ever veg out on YouTube and oggle at adorable vloggers.
P.P.S- There are some thoughts whirring round in my brain about possible vlogs? Possibly featuring a gorgeous cousin of mine and me? Watch this space, you guys will be the first to know about it.

Music Monday: Lewis Watson

Woah, its been a while since I wrote a 'Music Monday' post! But this is for such a good cause :-)
I was inspired by this post because I have just ordered tickets for Lewis Watson's first UK tour, and I am SO excited. I've never seen him live, but it's been high up on my list since, well, a long time. 
He has 2 EP's out, which are available on iTunes, AmazonMP3, Spotify etc:
It's Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW and Another Four Sad Songs, which are both great EP's. If you don't believe me (you really should believe me), then let me tell you that Fearne Cotton has played him on her R1 show.
My favourite at the moment (but it changes all the time) is Sink or Swim, so I definitely recommend that for starters. Enjoy! x

Weekend Recommendations

I think we can say its OK to talk Christmas now! So, here are some recommendations to occupy yourself this weekend, Christmas style.

A Film to watch: The Silver Linings Playbook. Starring Robert de Niro, (one of my favourites!) as well as Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. This is a really touching story. There is some humour in there, but this film goes quite deep too.
A Book to read: Little Women. I love this story, and I used to watch the film every Christmas.
A Song to listen to: The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin. You'll probably recognise it from the John Lewis advert.
A blog to read: The Wearist.
