It's been a while, but i've been a bit busy on my christmas holidays, between going to concerts and seeing friends blogging hasn't been my top priority! Totally bad right, i know. Back now and i'm just wishing you all a merry christmas.

This year has been amazing, and i'm so grateful for every single one of you who have followed, read, commented, tweeted, entered contests and been generally lovely to me on my blog. This year so much as happened with my blog and i'm ever so grateful and it is all your faults! Thank you. I hope you have a great year.

This year i've done so much. I've been on adventures in London (where i live), holidays with friends (who remembers my Ayia Napa post?) and so much more. This year has been one of my favourite years and no matter what bad things have happened - 2012 will always be memorable.

Here are some of my memorable moments:

These might look weird, but they're the first pictures I ever put up of myself on tumblr, and ever since i've been tumblr obsessed.

Cher Lloyd Concert
In february I was treated to tickets to Cher Lloyd at the Indig02 and she was incredible live. I was front row and such a good experience.

Tumblr Photos:
This was the first time i'd ever taken photos made to go on tumblr and it was crazy the response I got from this photo. Taken in Selfridges, London in the food hall. Ahh all the food looks so cute and yummy. The one on the right is a few weeks later, using a Lip Tattoo. This also got quite a stir on tumblr and I thought i should feature it as i've not seen many pictures like it. BTW it might be a photo on my own, but I was with someone else.

Spring: Friend 1 & My Dumbslut:
This year i've made so many 'new friends' (friends who i've not been as friendly with before) and Friend 1 is someone who i'm now quite close to. She's utterly hilarious and says the funniest things. This was taken before a sports lesson one day, so it's not a great picture but I thought it was quite funny to put up. If you want to here more from us check out: - our parody twitter account.

Spring: Tanning in the school's courtyard
This was in March, and four of us, including Friend 1 (2nd from the right) and me (last on the right), when it reached 28 degrees. Our school has a courtyard and Friend 1 left her lesson 5 minutes early to reserve us the best seats to tan on. I actually got burnt.

Antigone Play
In the summer term I had to go on a school trip to see the play Antigone. It was amazing and I got to go with my two closest friends, Best Friend and Amazing Friend featured in this photo. 

Last Day of School:
Now this is between 'Best Friend' (a previous post is on her - here) and I. She left the school this day and as an act of complete amazingness she bought the whole tray of our school's famous cookies. This brought a lot of awing from the other years, and angered many of the school but to us and our friends was utterly brilliant. I love you <3 font="font">

As a birthday present, my amazing Friend 2 gifted me a Sunday Wireless Festival ticket. It's the coolest day festival, in London as soon as we break up for summer. The day i went to featured Rihanna,Jessie J, Labrinth and way more. It was incredible and at some points we were at the very front with like 50,000+ people. 


Here you see me and Amazing Friend. Amazing Friend invited me to Monaco for a few days this July and it was amazing. We did so much in just a few days. The first picture shows me, looking like a squid, after falling asleep in the sun and getting sun burnt all over my face. On the right you see Amazing Friend bungee jumping ahaha. The bottom two, one of a view we had whilst out one evening, and on the right Amazing Friend taking a beautiful selfie. I'm so thankful for going and it was so much fun. I love you :*

 Summer Sleepover:
Didn't really know what to call this but basically this is me and Friend 2 in August. She was so tanned and we took like 400 photos of us doing crap all and I have never laughed so much. It was hilarious i died. It was too funny, i found two quite 'normal' photos but there were sooo many.

Ayia Napa:

Again I was invited on holiday by Incredible Friend, in Ayia Napa - Cyprus as she has a house there. It was beautiful. I'd never been to Ayia Napa, i'd only ever gone to the capital before. I was there for nine days and it was Incredible. We visited the famous Nissi Beach, what the 3rd and 4th picture are of. The 1st picture is of me, looking angry, and our friend we met in Cyprus who we're just going to call Cyprus Friend. He annoyed me. The 2nd picture is the only one I could find of (That we both would like) Incredible Friend and I. I was going to post the video of us on the Napa Slingshot, google it. But i thought i'd save that for later. It was so hot there and just utterly amazing. Thank you so much Incredible Friend <3 .="." font="font">


  In October I was very lucky to go on a trip to Pompeii, Italy where it was really hot. I went with my school for a few days and it was amazing. The first picture is of Friend 3 which I took on the 1st day and i just think it's beautiful of her. The 2nd photo is of me and 2 other friends - mind the fact i look like a bug. The 3rd photo is of Friend 4 & 5 on Mine and 5's (girl on the right) balcony. Our room was awful (three single beds pushed together and thats pretty much it + a step) but there was a huge balcony that was like the whole roof of our 2 star hotel. The last photo is from the last day on the coach.. I'm the O on the right hehe.


 Cats & Bunnies
In November I had some friends over and it was really fun. We all dressed up as cats and bunnies and we couldn't stop laughing. Definitely hilarious and I can't help but smile when I think of it.

Winter Wonderland
On the opening day of Winter Wonderland, london (a giant fair in Hyde Park with rides and everything fun), Amazing Friend and I went. We always go together on the 1st day or opening weekend and go on so many rides. Here's our photo, so attractive - i know.

And now we are up to December..
Ellie Goulding:
On the 18th of December, as part of my christmas present, one of my sisters (the first one on the left) bought me, my other sister and her boyfriend standing tickets to Ellie Goulding live in the Southhampton Guildhall (where she goes to uni) and it was incredible. After 3.5 hours of standing in the freezing cold, we got front row. I loved it, thank you so much Sis.

So that's where we are now and on Christmas Eve, I wish you Merry Christmas and a great new year. I'll keep you updated.

My Best Friend

I'm going to write this post, if I publish it I have no idea. I think i'm going to ask permission from my best friend if I can publish it. Raindrops, this is probably the hardest post I have ever had to write, and probably the hardest post I will ever write.

I'm currently reading a book, which I will do a gliterature on called 'The End of Everything' - Megan Abbott. And for some reason, even only 50 pages in, it's very dear to my heart. It's about a girl whose best friend gets kidnapped. Whilst reading it just down, at 2am I thought what would I do if that happened to my Best Friend? And that's it. I broke down in tears. The girl in the book was so strong about it. I couldn't be. There has been so many times when nobody could get in contact with her and we would all start worrying. Everyone was worrying because they couldn't reach her. She's always fine of course, hopefully she will ALWAYS be fine. But I was so worried for her. All that had happened is that her phone was out of battery. I was angry afterwards, so angry that she got me worked up for no reasons but then I remember suddenly having the thought 'what if something has happened to her, and i'm angry' and I stopped even feeling angry and just started asking everyone if they'd heard from her.
Cheeky school selfies :*

I've known her since Year 3, UK. I've known her since we were like six or seven, when she joined my school. I remember us standing in my old house, with our mothers, and having our backs turned to them so they couldn't tell who was who. When we were younger, especially from the back, we looked very similar. Now we look nothing alike, and I guess the only similarities we have now are our hair colour, eye colour and height. Still quite a lot though. She's a lot more beautiful than me though, and a lot thinner. To me, she is everything a best friend a best friend should be.

She means the world to me. If anything happened to her, like the best friend in the book, I have no idea what I would do. She doesn't go to my school anymore, but we still talk pretty much every day. I think I wouldn't be able to be the same person without her. I think I wouldn't be the Perdi I am today without her, nor could I ever be like i am today if she wasn't here. 

So, Best Friend, you mean the world to me and thank you so much for making me who I am today. And thank you for being who you are. 

Being a blogger and knowing, from bblogger chats, that you prefer more personal posts I'm considering this becoming VERY personal.

During this year we've suffered many problems in our friendship. All that has now been overcome. Sometimes I do wish I got mad, or angry, or confrontational but that is not who I am but in a way I go regret it.

There was a time in February when me and Best Friend had a rough patch. It was mainly through other people mixing sh*t and getting involved. Then I found things that made me really upset, things I could read and see in black and white that had been said. I should of told her straight away that I knew what had been said, I didn't. One of the reasons I didn't was because the way I found out - I was in the wrong. I shouldn't of ever found out these things, so i kept them a secret. We continued being best friends with no problems - well besides usual bickering. One day I just snapped and told her I knew. I didn't say it rudely or nicely either. But I said it. And I furious. After months, it must of been around 3 months, I felt released. But not resolved. I never realised how much I meant to her, and she was so upset when she knew I found out. In a way I understand what had happened, peer pressure is a part of every teens life. Best Friend, I am 99% over this so you don't need to feel bad anymore! The one percent left is my fault. I feel like I didn't do the classic teen-girl-drama yaknow all revenge and karma so in away I wish I did get all mad at her, it would make both of us feel relieved I think because after a few days of awkward glances we got over it and moved on. That's how good friends we are.

Even the big things mean nothing because she is there for me, and I am always here for her. 

She knows i'm writing this now by the way, so i'm never going to go into full details about her, I've mentioned Best Friends' name here before but I think it's best not to feature it in this post. 

Want to see a picture of us?

Ok. We don't actually look like that but I think it's good enough to show off our friendship. 

And as karma I thought i'd show off Best Friend with a picture of her in her full on Dumbslut mode:

 Credits to me because I took this AMAZING photo.
