My Favourites of 2012!

Hello Everyone, 

I would like to begin this blog by saying, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had great holidays and just celebratory times. I decided to write a post today about my favourites of 2012, basically just my favourite music, movies and clothing items.
What shall we start with?
My favourite genre of music is definitely alternative; that varies from indie pop, indie rock and just weird stuff! So these music choices are for those interested in Indie.
   In 2012, I discovered my ultimate love of the Arctic Monkeys. It started off when I got my best friend hooked on Indie music, one day before school she told me about how much she loved the Arctic Monkeys, so I went home and listened to them and BY GOD they were amazing. So here I am six months later in love with the whole band! (Especially Alex Turner *wink wink*)

The album above (Whatever people say I am is what I'm not...) is my favourite album of all! A few of my favourite all time songs by these lot include; Brianstorm, Red indicates the doors are secured, dance little liar, when the sun goes down and suck it and see. If you are into good ol' rock, I highly recommend this band!

Another one of my favourite artists has been Mumford and Sons. They are more on the country side but they are bloody AMAZING! I love them so much I can't even explain it! I have loved these guys longer than the Arctic Monkeys and I discovered them before hand! Mumford and Sons are such amazing songs, and although many of them do include love and memories they are not portrayed in the normal cheesy way but in the most beautiful way of all. I honestly love both of the albums and I could not pick one as my favourite!

My most loved songs from these lot include; Little Lion Man, Broken Crown, I will wait but the next two songs I can not even describe how much I love them, these are The Boxer and After the Storm, they are so indescribably amazing! Definitely listen to them! 

Lastly I would like to talk about Florence and the Machine, although I loved her already in 2011, I was granted an amazing opportunity to see her live in concert on March 10th 2012! This was the first concert I had ever been to and it was hosted in Alexandra Palace, London. It was one of the best experiences I have had in my life but what made the whole experience 1000x better was the fact that at one point I was on my dads shoulders and yes in fact, FLORENCE POINTED AT ME! I know it seems silly but her music is so beautiful and inspiring that I will cherish that moment for ever! I love all of her songs so I really can not pick any specifics! 

The beautiful Florence and no there is no zoom here, this is actually how close we were!! 

Although I loved Lana Del Rey, The Killers, and The Vaccines, these were definitely my top three of 2012! 

MOVIES of 2012?
In 2012 many things changed for my overall personality, I  became a little bit more out there and just plain different and because of this I changed from being like everyone else I know and just becoming myself and this meant that I was watching films new and old! 
I will give you a list of movies I recall watching in 2012 which I completely loved! 
  • The Avengers 
  • The Hobbit: And unexpected gathering. 
  • Withnail and I 
  • Scott Pilgrim Vs. the world
  • True Romance 
  • Pride and Prejudice 
  • Practical magic 

This was my favourite film for at least 3 months on end.
And lastly CLOTHING items!
This year my style has not really changed I will just give you the basics of what has happened! 
I have worn my Chuck Taylor All Star Converse Ox Slims to DEATH! Their colour even changed from white to a strange peach colour! The inside of the back is completely distraught and I am getting a hole in the bottom but I still love them! I now just use them for PE in school but they shall always be my babies! 
I have also just been living in jeans! I am a huge fan of jeans! They are just so easy and casual and I can't imagine living without them! 
Now that I think about it, those were the two main staples of my clothing because if you would ever see me, I am usually just in a jacket, t-shirt, jeans and converse! 

What were your favourites of 2012? These were mine! 
I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much as I enjoyed writing it! Thank you ever so much for reading! 
'till we meet again... 
Wow its Nelly.
