The Sacrifice

I know it's not very good, but since I haven't posted in a few centuries, I thought I'd try and win you back with a story*.

It's called The Sacrifice, and is for my English homework. Enjoy!

The cold night rain trailed down her pale cheeks, creating the illusion of tears. Raven-coloured strands of hair hung limply down her back, plastered to her skin as the light drizzle turned suddenly into a downpour. She gazed down at the limp body before her, a sight she'd promised herself she'd never see again. 
'I'm sorry,' she whispered to the sleeping corpse, before turning away and wiping dried blood down her dress.

'Mortalitus, I don't know what came over me. Please, I beg, forgive me.'
'Dear Venus, it is not I who you should beg forgiveness of, it is the Sanguis Domina. She shall not be pleased that you broke the Promise between us and the Humans.'
'Please, I realise what I did, and I must correct my errors.'
'As you know, there is only one thing you can do to undo your faults, before the Sanguis Domina takes her redemption out on you.'
'But, Mortalitus, I cannot find the human now! It's too late!'
'That's just the thing. The Living who you bit has already become cold blooded. You must find them, or the Vampyr legend will be in grave trouble.'
As Venus shakily tucked a loose strand of hair behind her ear, the Praeparator burst through the door.
'Mortalitus, Venus, there's news of a young Vampyr trolling the streets of Mississippi, seeking for a young human to quench his thirst. The Sanguis Domina is furious!'
Venus and Mortalitus exchanged glances, just as the Praeparator pulled out a document from his pocket.
'Venus, he has your DNA.'

Ripping the paper from his hands, Venus turned and ran out of the room. The early morning sun was glaring down at her, and at every footstep the heat became more intense. Lifting the paper to her face, Venus read.

Felix James, aged 17, reported missing from his home town in Scott, Mississippi. Just hours later, police came across a piece of Felix's clothing. After a sample DNA test, officer D. Bond tells us of a female DNA particle on the clothing, and blood stains through the fabric. He believes it may be a hit and run case, but with very little chance of Felix still being alive.

Venus, sprinting to the place of the murder, had a flash back of her first kill. Her best friend, her companion, her lover. Arctos. He couldn't cope with the change, and died on the spot. His soul taken in for testing by the Vampyr Lab, then destroyed. Venus, aged just 17, had been turned just the night before, whilst pregnant. The baby.. forever unborn.

Stopping, and staring down at the blood-stained concrete, Venus looked for clues as to where Felix could be right now. A single raindrop landed on her eyelash, and the leaves of the trees rustled and whined. The scent of blood flew her way. 

She spotted a trail of blood, leading to behind a rocky outcrop. Slowly, quietly, she followed it, stopping at the edge of a shallow cliff.
'Hello?' She called, pushing back a grey tree branch.
Movement behind the greenery stopped, and a face came out of the darkness.
'Venus?' It asked.
Gasping, Venus took a step back, her foot hanging off the cliff edge...

Odd- Deep Breaths -Socks

Now what is this 'latest craze' about odd socks? And is it me or are they just downright annoying??

Imagine this, your checking out the outfits on a catwalk, when a model walks on in ODD SOCKS. The illusion is shattered, it turns out the designer has no fashion taste WHATSOEVER.

And now, even worse - odd SHOES! Who in their right mind would go out in ODD SHOES?!

2013 is off to a BAAAD start, who knows what'll happen next! Leggings with one green leg, one red leg? Half-and-half t-shirts? Oh the shame!

What's your opinion of odd socks? Are you wearing some right now??? Are you in denial????


Blog Button!

I've been sent three potential blog buttons by Rebecca Stone, and I am completely IN LOVE with all of them! So, I've decided that I will use one  as my new blog button! But which one? Just comment below, email me or tweet me about which button I should use, and it will be the winner of my latest competition!




And yes, I know my posts aren't getting any longer, but I'm working on it!


Alex Goot

I PROMISE to start posting more often, but at the moment I'm in the middle of choosing my options, so sorry if I don't have much time for blogging at the moment.

Anyhow, today I've spent the past two hours listening to Alex Goot's music. I may have mentioned him before, and the fact that he's from NEW YORK, wears GLASSES like the human SPIDERMAN, and is only TEN YEARS OLDER than me. But since my last mention of him, I kind of, *cough*, forgot about him.

So, let me refresh your memories!

They are my ULTIMATE two favourite covers!

8 Ways To Make A Good Impression On Your First Day Of Work Experience

So, Friday was my first day at my new job! And it was good! But as it was just Work Experience, I didn't get a choice as to what I was doing. So, me being as brilliantly brilliant as I am, I came up with these clever little tips to help you survive your Work Experience.

1) Ask loads of questions. Once you've finished one thing ask what to do next; don't just stand there silently like a muppet.

2) Be confident. There's no point shuffling your feet and twiddling your fingers, TALK! Within the first few minutes my boss new my whole life story.

3) Don't complain. Even if you have to carry the Hoover down three flights of stairs (and it was a very heavy Hoover), no one likes a moaner!

4) Do everything better than better. They've hired you because you are amazing! It'd really suck if on your CV it says you are brilliant with cleaning and then in real life your spill bleach everywhere (which I found out if VERY painful as it burns the skin off your hands). So try your very best and make them proud to have you.

5) Your the lowest of the low, just like an Infant School pupil. Don't walk in as a stuck up snob with all your airs and graces unless you want a workmate to spike your drink or something.

6) Be prepared, and wear sensible clothes. I'd been taught from American sitcoms to dress for the job you want, not the job your going to get. But when I walked in in an Aztec jumper, a vintage jacket and pink rocker boots, I felt a slight overdressed amongst all the mops and dishes.

7) Imagine there's a unicorn in the room watching you, and you don't want to procrastinate or anything with the unicorn watching you now do you? So don't take a chocolate from their chocolate box or change channels on the radio, because you don't want to upset that poor unicorn.

8) Be nice and polite. Just like point 5), you don't want to make any enemies on your first few days.

And yes, some of these points related to me :/


Nailvarnish Revealed

Yesterday, whilst painting my nails a with my new jade NYC nailvarnish,  started to endure a coughing fit. I took a deep breath and... I coughed again. The nailvarnish fumes were making me cough, and this had never happened before. I immediately ran over to my IPad and Googled my nailvarnish ingredients. And what I found scared the living daylights out of me.

Formaldehyde. Used as a preservative, a sterilizer, and 
to embalm dead bodies. It's is where more of the 
smell was coming from. Also connected to lung and nasal cancer.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). It makes the nailvarnish flexible. 
Also used for rubber boots, shower curtains
hairspray, cling film, that sort of thing. Incredibly 
harmful to pregnant mothers and young babies, so countries 
such as Asia and Russia have made it illegal to be 
in any of their cosmetic ranges.

Toluene. Used in gasoline and as a raw 

explosive for TNT. But luckily, brands 
such as MAC, OPI and Zoya 
have banned it from their nailvarnish ranges. 

Acetone. Used in nailpolish removers, it is 

recommended not to use more than twice a month. Otherwise
it could start to attack the nail material.

The main gases found in nailvarnish attack the respiratory 

system, irritates the skin, and evidence has proved
it can cause many different types of cancer. It is toxic to 
the human body, being absorbed through the nailbed.

Whilst researching these facts, I came across a website 

which has a list of safe nailvarnishes. It turns out, my 
favourite NYC Nailvarnish ISN'T on that list. Check it out:

Still feel like applying that layer of Nailvarnish?

Always read the label!


Shoes In The News..

Roll up, roll up! Laaaadies and Gentleeeemen! 

For today's post I shall feature some new shoes I read about in the news.

First up is the Backwards Heel...

Although I am usually supportive of designers and their unique tastes, I think this is taking it to the extreme. Granted, these shoes make the muscles in her legs stand out more, but she looks a right numpty trying to walk in these shoes. It's curling back her toes, and let's face it, it isn't the most appealing of footwear.

And lastly, the Tarantula Shoe.

A bold and daring statement for today's society, this shoe holds a living tarantula. Since the 1970's when Goldfish Shoes went out of fashion, designers have been musing over their next live creation. This shoe is now classified as the 'World's Most Dangerous Shoe', and people are puzzling whether or not it's actually against animal rights or not.
