Alice in Wonderland at Tate Liverpool


Although I'm currently reading English ("books. You read english... books" I always think of that An Education joke) at university in Liverpool, I studied Art until A Level and I still can't resist a gallery every once in a while.

The Tate Liverpool has had its Alice in Wonderland exhibition since November but a lethal combination of essays, exams (one left!), and going home for Christmas has meant I haven't been able to go... until yesterday. I know, a blogger~ liking Alice in Wonderland is hardly surprising, but knowing there would be some Pre-Raphaelite works there (Rossetti! Hunt! Millais!) gave me a more substantial need to visit and part with £5.40 (Worth. It. It's a massive exhibition too). I thought you might like to see the sketches I did while I was there (Millais, Penrose, and Rackham. Further proof I still can't draw hands. Click through to see it bigger, if you fancy), and a photo of me taken last term standing on the kitchen surface and "proving" I'm tall by touching the ceiling. Maybe it was something labelled "drink me".

And in regards to the Coachella stuff I wrote in my last post, I was going to go, but my friend pulled out due to an internship and I didn't fancy going all that way with people I don't know so well. Thank you for letting me know about your experiences though! To compensate, I've been spending too much time window shopping on the Mulberry website and dreaming of Paris next year.

Coachella Dreaming


Jumper; £1.50; charity shop. Skirt; £15; American Apparel via ebay. Shoes; £60; Topshop. Necklace; gift. Watch; gift.

Got a bit lost (a.k.a. got distracted listening to Bowie) when on the way to find my usual spot to take photos, but serendipitously came across this place. Hooray for mistakes! Not so hot on the facial expressions, but you can't have everything.

But yes, important stuff, I'm sure you'll all seen the Coachella 2012 line-up by now, like I did just as I was about to go to sleep last night, keeping me up till silly hours fangirling. (Yeah, I apologise if you follow me on twitter.) I just want to know if any of you have ever been? Or even have just been to America? Might be a bit optimistic, but you know, fingers crossed...

2012 is here! Currently watching the Come Dine With Me: Made in Chelsea special - so much love for Caggie and Binky - proof alone that my taste in TV hasn't improved one jot. For NYE I went to a house party (there was a pool, Michael Barrymore was mentioned many times) and I sincerely doubt any photos will make it here, but I had heaps of fun and little sleep (yet again, no change from last year).
So, what has changed? Well, my hair for starters. Not quite the "Mahogany Brown" advertised but it's pretty cool, if I do say so myself. Outdoor photos at home, much to the bemusement of my mother (Who took the photos? Where did you go? Just why did you do that??).
Other than that, I really can't think of anything else. I'm still the one that turns up to a party with at least three cameras and I spent today breaking up one of the wooden stirrers in Starbucks. Living the dream.
