The Intern

Think of Devil Wears Prada and mix it with a bit of the Carrie Diaries and you get a book called The Intern.

"Josie Browning dreams of having it all.  A stellar academic record, an amazing career in journalism - and for her current crush to realize she actually exists. The only problem? Josie can’t get through twenty-four hours without embarrassing her sister Kat or her best friend Angel, let alone herself.Josie’s luck changes though when she lands an internship at the glossy fashion magazine Sash. A coveted columnist job is up for grabs, but Josie’s got some tough competition in the form of two other interns. Battle lines are drawn and Josie quickly learns that the magazine industry is far from easy, especially under the reign of powerful editor, Rae Swanson. From the lows of coffee-fetching and working 10-hour days, to the highs of mingling with celebrities, scoring endless free beauty products (plus falling for her cousin’s seriously gorgeous flatmate James) this is one year Josie will never forget"

I picked this book up off the shelf whilst book searching (not that I need more books with the amount I have) and wanted it straight away. Working at a magazine is a dream of mine ~ even working as an intern and in New York city? So of course I was going to read it! Josie ~ the main character is funny and can remind you of yourself, she also may make you cringe, then you have the room mate James who sounds perfect and is. But the book is full of funny twists and embarrassing moments, full of things you wouldn't expect!

This book is a must read

Best Romantic Movies

Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. They fall in love. Who doesn't love a romantic movie? I love my Romantic movies, especially Rom Coms. I have seen so many and I could pretty much re-watch them all. I love ones that have funny aspects and that don't have perfect scenarios! Like Boy meets girl, girl meets boy, girl meets another boy and can't choose so she decides to choose neither. OR boy sees girl, smiles, begins to slowly walk over and falls. Here is a list of some of my favorite romantic movies and romantic comedies, in no particular order. 

Love Actually
13 going on 30
How to loose a guy in 10 days
My best friends girl
The Proposal
The holiday
27 dresses
The Vow
Love and other drugs
Bride wars
Friends with benefits
Confessions of a shopaholic
The Notebook
No strings attached
A walk to remember
Something Borrowed
Valentines day
Angus thongs and perfect snogging 
 Letters to Juliet
Dear John
Princess diaries

P.S I won't be posting this week because I have school camp!

The Ones Who Care

“If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time”

I find this hard. This topic. Feeling as though, if you weren’t there that person’s life wouldn’t change. That they wouldn’t be saying, “I wish so and so was here” “where is she?” or he. It is hard to work out who really cares and who just pretends to. I used to dwell over this a lot, but I have discovered it was really just a waste of time.

Think about it.

Who has always remembered your birthday? Who has texted you to see where you were? Who has always checked up on you? Those are the ones who I think really care, who actually think about you and appreciate you. The friends that would drive for an hour at 11.00 at night to help you if you were in trouble. The ones you know you can count on for anything. The ones who would never go behind your back. The ones who would stand up for you if you’re being talked about and they didn’t think it was right.

Try something. Ignore them ever so slightly, see what they do, see how it affects them, do they question you? Do they ask you to talk to them? Do they try to get your attention? Or do they just carry on with their lives and not really care. Those people, the ones who don’t care, aren’t worth it. Don’t ponder over them or think about them all the time. Don’t go above and beyond to help them because they don’t deserve it.

Those people feel as though they can treat you like that because they know you’ll always be there, that you’ll always come back to them. Don’t. Don’t give them that satisfaction, you deserve better than that! Focus on the people that really care about you.

“If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you’re ok. Who watches out for you and wants the best for you. Who loves and respects you. Don’t let them go. People like that are hard to find”

Fall/Winter Fashion Inspiration

Fall and Winter are my favorite times of year, I prefer it to summer! I love the fashion and wrapping up and reading by the fire and drinking tea and rainy days in sweats. Me being me, I am already have been searching through fashion tumblrs and blogs, saving images and shhh don't tell, I've even written a list of what I want to get for it! Although most of the stuff I'll be getting for France anyway BONUS I think so! I was going to list my fall essentials, but it'll be a long list, so maybe I'll do that in another post?
