Breath-taking photos of people looking their best & their worst!

Woah well hi guys, sure feels like forever since I made a post, when really its only been 8 days. But 8 days!! I mean I was on a roll, was really getting into this blogging thing. But I'm back with another post, for a very short interlude (as I leave Sunday to go Interrailing), this one being slightly odd, and in no relation AT ALL to my ever so fabulous blog title.

With technology these days we all so easily fall into that social rigmarole of selfies! Everyone (well no, everyone fortunate enough) has a phone with a frontward facing camera, or device of some sort that can successfully take pictures. So when your feeling like a particularly pretty human someday, why wouldn't you want to take a snap to remind yourself, or the world of how gorgeous you looked (and are!). Wooo positive self-happiness guru Sinéad here. So there's no denying, that at some stage YOU fell victim to this plight and took a picture of yourself. And you were proud of that picture sister (or brother)!


For every moment of self admiration, there is a moment of boredom. And it is then that we take photos like this:

Oh you know what I'm talking about! Christened with the name 'Uglies', they are the evil, yet humorous, step sister of 'Selfies'. And without a doubt, you have also taken one of these bad boys!

Fun little scientific fact, that explains why sometimes we are unhappy with the way we look in a selfie -

"We are used to identifying with our faces as they would appear in a mirror, but when we take a selfie, the camera captures our faces as strangers would see us from head on rather than we would see ourselves in a reflection." - The Times.

I am so fascinated by this fact! Not the part to do with the camera but the fact that if you were to walk past yourself on the street you wouldn't even recognise your own body and face! Because when you look in the mirror the reflection is a little bit distorted. Have you ever seen anyone else's face in the mirror and they look a bit different!? I have and it always baffled me! Anyway back to business. 

So bellow you will find a collection of images demonstrating both uses of the terms 'Selfie' and 'Uglie'. Pictures of a person looking their best and a picture of them looking their worst. So of course if your human, you'll enjoy these!

My absolute favourite hahah

The Voices In My Head | This Week

Jake Bugg

Do you ever listen to a song, an feel completely captivated by the lyrics and melody? Or by the artist vocals? So inspired by the music that you get that fuzzy feeling inside. Or perhaps you get that feeling because the music hit a nerve within you? Well that's how I feel right now, and maybe I'm the only one who gets this 'fuzzy feeling' (but I highly doubt it)! For me, it think it happens especially when listening to something live, be it on a stage, live on tv or a live audio recording from a gig. Over the past week I've been listening to a lot of music, which is awesome as usual (I mean who doesn't love music?). This music coma was furthered by the Glastonbury Festival, which the BBC so fabulously live streamed for those of us less fortunate to make it this year. So when I wasn't browsing Spotify or Youtube for tunes, I was sitting on my couch singing along (where possible) to live Glastonbury gigs. This year I jammed along to the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, MGMT, Kellis, Kodaline, The Kooks and much more! My new addiction being Jake Bugg. I had heard of him and knew one or two songs, but really only discovered him for real at the weekend when he braced the 'Other Stage' in Glastonbury.

As soon as he began to sing I was hooked, his voice is sooo original and beautiful. A voice expected to emerge from a much older man, least expected to be the voice of a 20 year old Nottingham bloke. His songs are bluesy in style with melodic hints of his influences (The Beatles and Johnny Cash to name two). But his music is also quite like indie folk/indie rock which I love aswell. He has this 'I couldn't give a fuck!' appearance (not saying he's shabby looking, that's not at all the case), which infact makes me more fascinated with his music and voice! I get that 'feeling' listening to his music. Its so comforting for some reason? But I suppose its not odd that it is, it would be more odd if screamo music made me comfortable. But then again that's somebody's thing, somebody's comfort. I really like his look, find him quite attractive for some reason haha.

His tunes I'm loving at the moment include:
