"It's Only Rock & Roll"

Today I'm pretty sick. So I've been in bed all day. But that did mean I got round to watching The Rolling Stones documentary, 'Crossfire Hurricane'.
I'm someone that loves documentary movies, 'Dogtown and Z-boys' and 'Riding Giants' are some of my  favs, and being a big fan of the Stones, I had pretty high hopes for this.
To be honest, my high hopes were reached and beaten. 
The whole thing was amazing and extremely well made. 
I liked how they talked through the story, rather than having a narrator tell it.
And there was a lot of unseen footage. And of course an amazing soundtrack to go with it.
Being only 19, I'm pretty sure i was born in the wrong era. 
My heart craves for a way of life that doesn't exsist anymore.
I wish I could have been there when The Stones started- Watched them really blow up and grow into who they are now. 
But lucky for me, good music has no expiration date.

Sunday Blues.

Tired, cold but productive.
I've got nearly all my Christmas shopping done now and I'm in ultimate festive mode.
I'm going to see the Twilight movie tomorrow with my best friend. Which should be good. As long as she doesn't let me down again.

Sunshine Beyond The Rain.

My day has been spent drawing and painting this lovely photo of Justin Bieber I found on the internet.
I need to trim it and possibly frame it. 
I also need to do that for the drawing of Cara Delevingne I did a couple of weeks ago which can be found here.  ( I haven't posted the final piece yet.)
I'm going to try to do more drawings cause I feel like recently I've been in a bit of slump and just haven't been bothered to do much that's creative. So hopefully I'll be able to post future drawing/paintings.

Christmas Came Early.

Moon and Stars Necklace; DIY.

Yesterday was spent at Earl's Court in London. I recieved free tickets to the Ideal Home show and was more than happy to have a day trip to one of my favouite cities.
The entire venue was filled with christmas items and I had to find many excuses not too buy everything in the fashion department.
They had an ice rink, a catwalk and Gino D'acampo was there. 
And I found "One Direction".
All in all, a very lovely day out.  Plus I'm in total festive mode.
I swear I'm 19.

"Keep Listening To Music, Cause It Gets You Through Everything, I Promise"

(Photo from tumblr.)

On Thursday, Mitch Lucker from Suicide Silence died in motorcycle accident. 
Now, I'm not going to pretend I was a Suicide Silence fan, because I wasn't. I couldn't even name you half of their songs if I tried. However, I know they have a huge fan base. And I know what its like, to have a favourite band, to listen to a bands music and have it somehow save you. I know what its like to have a band become your heroes.
Mitch Lucker was a hero to so many people. He did something amazing with his life and managed to change so many other lives as well.
He left behind a beautiful wife and a gorgeous daughter who he unfortunately won't be able to see grow up.
I can't imagine loosing someone who I looked up too, who I could go up to thank for changing my life, for making me the person I am today. Nor could I even begin to imagine loosing my dad -someone who is one of the most important people in my life and I don't know where I'd be without him.
Mitch Lucker was talented person. An inspiration to many. And from what I can tell, an incredible father and a loving husband.
