Love, Lust and Links

Sorry this is so late!! I had so many other exciting things to post the last few days I decided this could wait :]]

1. Productivity
My to-do list is looking decidedly marked so I'm happy. Although, I do seem to be adding new things to do it all the time. Eek.

2. Whoogles
Where I go when I don't want to do anything on my to-do list...

3. This necklace

Santa, have you noticed I like pandas?

4. This dress

Which I ordered on Friday, and which is taking its sweet time arriving...

6. The Godfather

I am doing an essay on The Godfather for my Literature into Film class. I absolutely adored the book, and didn't realise how amazing the film was until second time around. And I'm not going to lie, I have the biggest crush on Michael. And therefore Al Pacino. Judge away, Michael is awesome.

7. Feeling slightly famous
I met a guy at the weekend who was asking me about uni and stuff and I told him I wanted to be a journalist and that I wrote for The Statesman. I told him I was the Girl Next Door and he got really excited because he read my column!! Also today I went to introduce myself to one of the professors in the journalism department because I want to take his class next semester and he said "I know who you are, I've read your column." It was SO cool!!

8. Clothes swap
There have now been two items swapped!! I gained the silk cardigan yesterday from Amber and Sian received my lace and floral dress today!! I can't wait to see more of these swaps!!

9. Getting excited about Christmas
I am sad that I won't be home to put up the tree and do my Christmas shopping with my mum but I'm already starting to feel the Christmas spirit!! Something about the snow and the smell of the air just gets me excited. I am such a big kid when it comes to Christmas- even now if I wake up in the night I get too excited to get back to sleep!! As soon as it gets to 5 weeks before I put Love Actually on and it really gets me in the mood!!
10. Hot apple cider
My new favourite drink from the coffee shop. I'm sure the main ingredient is sugar but I really don't care it's so delicious!!
11. This Betsy Johnson Dress

12. Record Stats
Thank you so much for all your support guys. My stats are looking fantastic!! I blogged way back in March that I wanted to be getting over 1000 hits a day by my 21st birthday, and I thought that was an impossible goal. But now I'm getting over 700 hits a day, and yesterday I had 924 hits, so thank you so much for your continued support!! It means the world to me.
13. Blog Awards!!

Today I received this award from Amber!! I will definitely be handing this out soon to a few of my favourite new bloggers!!
14. Shorts challenge

Well the shorts challenge is now over, but I had so much fun doing it!! You can read my conclusion post here :]]]
15. England
I had some lovely responses to my Dear England post. England, I love you. You will always be my home.
16. Thanksgiving
God I can't wait to actually have a break for a few days!! I am excited to go to Kait's house and chill out, and meet her mum!! You can read Kait's Mum's blog here :]] It's such a fun read, I love it. I can't wait to meet her- I think we'll get on like a house on fire!!
17. Skpe
On Monday I skyed my best friend Kayleigh and had a conference call with my other two best friends from home, Jenny and Eve. Skype is so amazing, I don't know what I'd do without it!!
18. Othello
My favourite Shakespeare play which we're finally studying in my 5000-level Shakespeare class. I know it so well I can quote chunks of it, but it's still my all-time favourite play.
19. Things not being as bad as you thought
I am ever the pessimist. I worry far too much. But this week I'm being brave and things aren't as bad as I expected!! Shakespeare papers, introducing yourself to new teachers, emailing people asking if you can interview them for your article...
20. My favourite links this week...
Destressing thanks to College Candy, and my favourite relationship advice pieces this week here, here and here. Oh and this book, I love a bit of self-help.
21. My giveaway
