Follow this linkto an awesome hairstyle tutorial video. It teaches you how to do a French Plait bun. The hairstyle looks amazing , although very difficult. I am yet to try it , but when I do I will post pictures for y'all.
Farewell for now , and once again , my apologies for the infrequency with which I post.
Last time that I posted, I informed you that my laptop had exploded. It is now fixed ( Yay!) , but all of my files are lost ( Not so yay ) . Therefore , all of the posts I had saved up and ready to unleash on you are gone. I was going to re-write them and conduct a blogging extravaganza, but I haven't had time , due to two reasons :
I have been appointed Teen Fashion Ambassador for Cheltenham Fashion Week , and am in charge of running the new blog, which can be found by following this link. So far , I have attended a brilliant photo shoot at Cowley Manor , and will be following that up with a Fashion Show there on the 23rd of this month. I have a feeling that Cheltenham Fashion Week is going to be big, so watch this space.
I had to make a dress for a Fashion competition last Thursday. It was an inter-schools competition , and everyone from my school made it in to the top ten. We were the only school to do so , and the others looked pretty jealous. My school produced some amazing dresses ( if I do say so myself) , and although mine was a disastrous newspaper concoction constructed merely a week before the event ; it still made it to the top ten , and I was very happy.
So instead of a blogging extravaganza as I so called it , I will just resume posting with the frequency that I was doing so before , effectively just picking up where I left off. Watch out for more exciting things on the horizon. There is a BIG piece of news coming soon , but you won't be finding out about that for quit a while I'm afraid
However , I will be making a few changes to this blog. The main change is that 'Moosiah's Magical Monday ' , 'Wisdom Wednesday' , and 'Things that Inspire me Thursday' , will be abolished. Currently , I feel that they are just too similar to what I would normally post on a non-segment day , to deserve their own section. If I feel that they are gaining prominence again ,t hen I may bring them back from the dead. But for now , they are gone. Hopefully this will mean that my creativity is not restrained, and I don't have to post about a certain thing on a certain day , because I really do detest such organisation.
I am very sorry to say that my laptop passed away a few weeks ago. As a consequence, I lost all of the posts that I had saved and ready to unleash on you. However, my laptop will soon be restored or replaced, and upon one of those events happening , I will have a posting extravaganza , which will hopefully make up for the huge gap that has been left on my blog.
I also have some exciting news to share with you , more information coming soon !
Until then , my little pumpkins ( Get the halloween reference?!) , I bid you adieu
I'm doing this new thing called 'Friend of the Month' where I choose one friend who has been particularly nice to me that month and I give them a gif tpackage. This month I chose Caitlin Dalton , and she received a personalise gift package .
Friendship is of great importance to me and I am in the process of writing an article on the subject at the moment. Stay tuned !
Something that I've learnt over the years is the importance of reflection. Every so often , it is very important to take a little time away from all of the chaos of the world , and reflect on your life as it stands. Are you being kind enough? Are you a hard worker? Do you push people too much? These are all questions that you should be asking yourself.
A useful thing to do is sit down and right out a list of positives and negatives about yourself. Hopefully , the positives outweigh the negatives , but if they don't then this is an important wake up call fro you to improve on who you are. Focus on enhancing the positives , and converting the negatives.
I will be writing a full and extensive article about this in the near future. Stay tuned to find out more.
Peace , Love and chunky knit sweaters ( Autumn is here !)
Now , this may be one of the hardest parts of planning a masquerade, and to do this part , you must have a secure concept and theme. If you unsure onwhat your theme should be, then read my guide to choosing one here . Before you start looking for a venue , you may want to decide on a budget. This will make the process a lot easier.
The perfect venue for your event is really dependant on what your theme is. If you are having an enchanted forest themed masquerade ball, then obviously a forest , woods or even your back garden would be the perfect location. However , if you are having a Marie Antoinette themed ball , then it may be a bit harder to find a venue. A good place to look is www.venuefinder.com they have a really useful search engine that lets you search for venues in your local area , that matches your criteria.
Alternatively , you could ask your local council if they have any village halls, rooms off librarys etc that they hire out. Also , look around at local restaurants and hotels , because many ahve side rooms that they rent out for parties. If you live in a big city then it should be really easy to find a venure. However , in small towns (like mine) it may be more difficult. If you are up for a challenge , and you are having a relatively low key or small ball , then you could try hosting it at your house. However , I onylreccomend this if you are inviting a small number of guests , and are willing to do a lot of tidying up the next day.
Make sure that your location is easy to get to , not down some creepy alley ( your guests won’t want to wonder back in the dark otherwise). Preferably make sure there is ample parking space , or choose a location in walking distance from your guests houses , or bus stops/train stations/underground etc.
Also , make sure that if it’s in a hotel , your guests are considerate towards the people staying there. At the end of the ball you’ll probably want to sit down , not gte in to a massive fight with the hotel manager !
Once upon a time , a long time ago , in a land far away I discovered a beautiful little website called ' How to be a retronaut'. After falling in Love with the aforementioned website, I immediately signed myself up to the mailing list. Today I received a rather amusing email from them , that depicts celebrities as Russian generals. The likes of Charlie Sheen and Michael Jackson make an appearance , here are a few of the photos :
Who's seen the latest Mulberry Ads? These are my two favourites :
I Love the bird theme. In case you didn't know , I have an obsession with birds. It's not so much as the actual animal , although I do Love them , it's more the whole theme and symbolism of birds. To me , they represent freedom , and freedom is one of the most important things to me. That's one of the numerous reasons I would never commit a crime , because I would be imprisoned , and that would be my worst night mare.
Speaking of worst nightmares , I've really got back in to the Arctic Monkeys's album 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'. My favourite songs from the album are :
If you click on the name of a song , it should take you to a YouTube video of it . I Love all of the others on the album as well , but those are my Top 5.
Another album that I've got back in to is 'Nevermind' by Nirvana. It was the 20th anniversary of 'Nevermind' on Saturday , and I reflected on how much music has changed since then , all because of that one iconic album. You may never have heard a Nirvana song ( Silly you !) , but 'Smells like Teen Spirit' may ring a bell. There is a link to it here. Brilliant song , brilliant band. I was rocking out to 'Lithium' this morning. Go YouTube it !
I did a Tarot reading yesterday and asked which card represented me today. I got the Page of Wands , which I was happy about. Here is an extract from the meaning ' The Page of Wands is creative and passionate. She is witty , charismatic, and outspoken with her philosophy.She is the spark of initiative,inventive, and she dares you to delve within and seek out the opportunities that may be frightening but have so much potential '.

My First Secret is going to a big one.A really big one. So big that you probably won't believe me when I say it. Especially if you have endeavoured to read a few of my previous posts.
Moosiah's Sunday Secret #1 : I used to hate exclamation marks. I refused to use them , stating that they were a repugnant offence to punctuation.I believed that they were cheesy and unnecessary. Oh how I was wrong.
You see? Who would have thought that I would hate exclamation marks . I use one every couple of sentences ! But this goes to show that it is never too late to change your opinions and way of thinking. You always have time to grow as a person , and leave behind silly things such as a hatred for awesome punctuation.
What's your secret? Leave it in the comments , or on my facebook or twitter. If you are really shy but still have something to get off your chest , email me your secret at email@example.com
In celebration of reaching 13 likes on facebook, (it's a small number , I know , but it's my lucky number) , I am introducing a new segment called 'Secret Sunday'. Every Sunday , I will share a secret with you , and you can leave your own secret in the comments if you wish.
