My heart is nuclear. ♥

If you know me well (or at all), you’re probably aware that I’m genuinely in love with Greek-Welsh singer/songwriter Marina Diamandis, aka Marina & the Diamonds. She’s a very engaging indie-pop-i don’t know what, but she’s one of those fantastic artists who manages to create exactly what is in my head & can’t say! Intelligent, creative lyrics, one of the most individual and exquisite voices I’ve heard & of course she’s fucking GORGEOUS. It was love at first sight! (Hollywood video; long dark hair, red lips and super quirky fashion! I was defenseless!)

Look at those curves! Anyone who says only stick thin girls can be sexy just needs to look at Marina...

She’s just released some new stuff and, although one of the songs is very different, it is still AMAZING. She’s creating a piece of art with her music, and it’s a shame so many people can’t see the concept but it’s so beautiful! I love dance music and what’s this – dance with SOUL? It’s a concept asdfghjjj I just love it. <3

Listen to part one here:   & part two here:

I also recommend the acoustic version of Radioactive.  She’s incredible & I hope you guys like her as much as I do! <3

Love and kisses,

I wanted to be beautiful, intelligent, talented & creative.

…BUT, DARLING, I WANT TOO MUCH. Unlike most people, I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I have a tendency to make those optimistic promises over the summer, or specifically – starting the new school year. I will work harder, I will get the top grades, this is the year! It worked last year when I vowed to be more organised with my college work – I ended up (for the first time..ever) getting the top grade! So, I want to work on becoming a better person and really start to push myself again. Here are some things that I scribbled down in a notebook last night, that I really want to improve on.

  • Wear nicer clothes.
  • Draw more finished illustrations.
  • Do some crazy silly paintings!
  • Keep things tidy for longer than a week.
  • Go outside and explore!
  • Learn DIY – sewing, bookbinding, jewelery, crafts.
  • Write more often, about anything! Especially, I’d like to explore creative writing.
  • Do some sort of exercise! Yoga?
  • Get that tattoo.
  • Learn photography, take pictures of wonderful people & happy times.
  • Read more! Read anything!
  • See my friends more often.
  • Spend less time on the internet doing nothing.
  • Write some quality blog posts.

And I will have to do these without spending any money! Hmm. Makes some of them a little tricky (is it even possible to make quality clothing without a sewing machine?) It’ll be a challenge, definitely… Maybe I’ll check back here in a few months or so and see which of the above I’ve done! Oh, and don’t forget, Kit, you need to learn how to cook, clean and live independently next year, as well as doing the best you can in university. Because, y’know, that isn’t going to be difficult enough without this little extra challenge.

Love and kisses,

The Promise & and some silly photos!

 

OH GOODNESS, MY SWEETS, it’s been ever such a long time since I last updated. I really need to keep this thing updated! An awful lot has happened since I last wrote something down here. I’m no longer working as a piercing apprentice :( , but I am going to University in EXACTLY one month and one day! Gasp! I hoping to make a lot of changes to myself, work on being a better person, radical self-love and all that jazz. And, that includes keeping a note of my life. So, The Promise. I am going to update this blog at least once a week. So, I will take at least an hour or two to update you lovelies on what I’m doing. I will do it! I WILL.

WELL, A QUICK UPDATE and some photographs I think, to wrap this up? I’ve had the pleasure of spending some time with my darling beloved. Nearly three whole weeks! As some of you may, or may not know, I am in a Long-Distance-Relationship with a very lovely chap. He’s worth it, but it’s frustrating not being able to see each other very often. However, we went on a quaint holiday with my parents in Gloustershire in a little caravan. It was so nice having him around while walking around abbeys and forests! A delightful time. And now, I’m spending a week at his house while his parents are away. We’re just chilling out, watching films and playing video games. (I even beat him at Mario Kart!!) Such a shame it has to end.

   

             

 Isn’t he adorable?! The corridor we’re walking through was filmed in Harry Potter – we were told we were going to the Great Hall and got very excited, only to find out that it was just one of Hogwart’s measly corridors! We sat and watched the swifts in Tintern Abbey for ages, it was so relaxing and sweet. Ahh, well, he’s lovely! I can smell sausages coming from the kitchen (thank goodness my boy can cook!) so I am going to head off and have some delicious nibbles!

Love and kisses, sweethearts!

a brand new day

HELLO DARLING BLOG-READERS! This is Kitty Thunderstone speaking, pleased to make your acquaintance.  This is my new blog, telling you dears about my wonderfully exciting life. I will try not to bore you with a standard “my name is kitty and i like piercings, pin up girls and pokemon” post, but here we go. I daresay I shall tell you about my day?

TODAY, I STARTED MY NEW JOB. Gasp! An exciting day in anyone’s life, right? I’ve never been employed before, and although this isn’t a real job with, y’know, payment, I’m really happy to be starting. I’ve not had the best year thus far so it’s sooo lovely to see things starting to look up. And look up they truly are, as I have lucked into my dream job… I shall explain.

I have been unsuccessful in my university applications this year; with tuition fee rising next year, it’s no surprise that so many more people are applying than usual. Horror!, I thought as I was rejected from my last resort, I will never be able to get a career in my beloved Illustration! I finished my Foundation Diploma in Art and Design and faced a long summer of uncertainty and boredom… However, LITERALLY the day before I finished, I was notified regarding a facebook status. (A facebook status! How does one get a JOB from a facebook status I hear you cry…) My local tattoo and piercing studio declared that they were pleased to announce their search for a PIERCING APPRENTICE.

Now, unless you have wanted to pursue a career in either piercing or tattooing, you are probably unaware as to how difficult it is to find an apprenticeship. Most people seeking them have searched for years  and been unable to find one. If they are found, they are almost certainly expensive. (My boss was telling another hopeful that there was a parlor in Canterbury that sometimes offers apprenticeships, but he tends to charge £1500. FIFTEEN HUNDRED. For a mere three to six months of education.) Mine in my own town and although I am not being paid, I do not have to pay a penny! My luck has changed, at long last, and I have somehow found myself in this apprenticeship. I have a future!

I saw three clients pierced, after The Boss tested my basic knowledge of piercings by asking me to label images of faces, bodies and ears. One of them fainted (!!), another was scared of needles and requested that I hold her hand, the other didn’t even squeak. A VERY exciting and interesting day. I already feel like I’ve learnt a lot and I can’t wait to go back!

I SHOULD PROBABLY BE OFF, but I shall definitely be writing in here more often. I’d even like to do my own illustrations instead of using images found on Google or photos of myself – wouldn’t that be an interesting read? Hehe, I’ll be speaking to you again soon, my darlings.

I hope you don’t miss me too much!

Love and kisses, sweethearts!
