1. Go Places! Yep, and its the easiest thing to do too! Resist the temptation to laze around for hours (lye-ins are fine, as long as you don't overdo it! Meet up with friends and visit places that you don't usually have the time to go. The Beach is the most popular summer destination; and there is no surprise why! It's a place where you can soak up the sunshine (while wearing sun cream, of course!) or have an amazing time splashing in the ocean. It's free too, which is a bonus if your broke!
2. Go to a Music Festival! Summer is a popular time for big music festivals (Glastonbury Music Festival - is the biggest in the UK). They give you a chance to experience a whole new world of music, and you'll be carried away in the excitement of it all! Its an amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity that I'm sure you won't regret, I want to go to Glastonbury music festival myself, the cost (just over £200) seems a small price to pay for the amazing memories you will gain, don't you think?
3. Practice Hobbies! Have a talent that you want to take further? If so then summer is the time to do it, you have all the time you need to dramatically progress over the course of the holiday; all you need is a splash of commitment and determination whether it be your dancing, singing or drawing skills you want to refine. Whatever it is, make a schedule to practise it (e.g 30 minutes a day) and don't go overboard as you may lose interest. Although it takes a lot of patience and dedication to progress, your talent will surely blossom! Not only will you gain a strong sense of achievement but you'll gain skills that others will envy and admire!

This week Paloma Faith is back with her second album ‘Fall To Grace’. The sophomore album is filled with cinematic ballads which are perfectly sung with her beautiful, soulful voice. Although this album has some brilliant songs on it, it does seem to be a bit samey. I’m sure it will end up growing on you though. The album features new single ‘Picking Up the Pieces’ (which you can listen to below) and is available to buy now.

This season Mulberry has definitely gone for some bright and exciting colour's to put us all in a summer mood!
The colours are bold and expressive and surprisingly British as Mulberry is described as 'Luxury English Fashion', and its really refreshing that it is an English top end brand - growing in popularity. I want to share with you some of my favorite fashion items from this collection.
< I really love these bold Eyelet shorts in 'Lemon sherbet summer crepe' for £250! They are silky soft shorts with a sporty twist! The Eyelet shorts are based on retro running shorts, with a ruched waistband and drawstring toggle ties and curved edge hemline in a fresh and vivid lemon sherbet! The lemon wedges look perfect with it too and gives a fun and effortlessly stylish look to it.

This week Swedish duo Niki and the Dove release debut album 'Instinct'. The album includes favourites; 'Mother Protect', 'The Fox' and 'Winter Heart', and is filled to the brim with the pop greatness that is expected from the Swedish. This is definitely a worthy purchase for the alternative pop fan.
Fashion is a great way to express yourself... and make a statement about who you are and how you feel. Believe it or not, the way you dress has a major impact on first impressions, so its probably a good idea to dress in a way that expresses who you are, with confidence and natural style. Here's a guide to help you develop your own sense of style.
1. Don't Be Afraid. Wear what you like! Part of having your own style means not following the crowd, make your own decisions about what clothes you like; they don't have to follow mainstream high street trends. Just wear what you love and be proud of it, if others can see that you feel confident and natural in your clothes then others will love that your individual and not fake, copying common trends. Its super creative to be your own stylist, and people will admire you for your unique and personal sense of style.
Mango: Blouse £49.99 Shorts £29.99 Sunglasses £22.99
2. Learn About Style. To a certain extent you'll need to know what's hot and what's not. Have a browse through some good fashion mags like Vogue or Cosmo for some inspiration and to give you a feel about what you do or don't like. Most importantly get to know when clothes fit you. Many of us can't have the size 0 body shape of a model, but that doesn't matter. You don't need that to have style you need to find out what kind of clothes flatter your body shape. Go to http://www.shopyourshape.com/ for some advice.
3.Explore The Unknown. Go into shops you don't usually go in, although in mainstream high street shops your bound to find something in style, why not venture into a shop you wouldn't normally go into, you might come across a hidden treasure such as a uniquely styled vintage dress etc and accessories which no one will be able to find anywhere else!

Recently I came across the deluxe edition of Beyonce's newest album '4'. It contains 6 bonus songs including 3 Run the world remixes. Here's the track list of the bonus song disc: Lay up under me, Schoolin' life, Dance for you and three Run the World Remixes. I think that 'Lay up under me' is probably the best bonus song as it is upbeat and a fun song to listen too; as always, beyonce has great vocals in the song and its a credit to the deluxe album!
