Drake is coming to the UK!!!

The moment i've been waiting for the last 12 months couldn't have come at a better time, no its not a sexy man to whisk me away somewhere hot (even though that would be nice), Drizzy is coming to London. My good friend Georgie D has booked him to perform at Faces nightclub the last sunday of March so people take note!!!
I first got into Drake a while ago after hearing his tune "I just wanna be successful" about a year ago. I would like to add the fact that he is half Jewish is the most amazing thing ever. A mixed raced, Jewish man.....what more could I want! Drake is signed to Young Money entertainment, who's CEO is none other than Lil Wayne. Say no more!

I have purchased every Drake mixtape they have; with my favourite songs being "Congratulations", "Say something" and "Im still fly".....If you dont know get yo know

Cheryl Splits with Ashley

Clearly going to bed with Britain's hottest woman is not satisfactory enough for Ashley Cole. After stories broke last year that he played away with hairdresser Aimee Walton and the recent revelations of his straying, Cheryl has decided to dump her footy hunk hubby. I cant really say i'm surprised, but its time women taught their men that playing the field is not acceptable off the pitch. Who needs men anyways, there is nothing like spending a cosy night in with the girls, so i hope her bandmates are looking after her. I wonder who is going to be her new man? Any one got any suggestions????

A true genius in the world of fashion RIP Alexander McQueen

I've never been fortunate enough to be able to afford a McQueen number, but If I lived a life of luxury, McQueen would defintely be stacked up in my wardrobe. At 40-years-old, he took his own live after the stress of losing his mother 10 days ago, right before he was due to launch his new collection at the infamous London Fashion Week.

McQueen's early runway collections developed his reputation for controversy and shock tactics (earning the title "l'enfant terrible" and "the hooligan of English fashion"), with trousers aptly named "bumsters" and a collection entitled "Highland Rape". ALthough not all his clothes appealed to me, he was a big hit with A listers such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and tv favourite Cheryl Cole. He was known for his lavish, unconventional, runway shows, such as a recreation of a shipwreck for his spring 2003 collection, spring 2005's human chess game and his fall 2006 show, "Widows of Culloden", which featured a life-sized hologram of supermodel Kate Moss dressed in yards of rippling fabric.

His designs will be missed by many and I'm sure his collections will continue to be a big hit! RIP to a ledgend.

Everyone cheats!!!!! Dont be a door mat though

If I read one more story about John Terry I'm going to scream. The fact that the British press need to put the former England Captain on the front page for having an affair with another woman (who happened to be his ex team mate from Chelsea's missus) is just pathetic. People have affairs all the time, its just ludacris. What makes me laugh the most is the fact that everyone has been going on about how sorry they feel for his wife, and she's taken him back still. Why feel sorry for her, she married him knowing he had cheated on her a number of times before, so she knew what she was entering before she said 'I Do'.

Why Fabio Cappello felt it was in the interst of the public to sack him as England Captain has baffled me. Who gives a toss what he has done in his spare time. He's our best defender and someone who the team look up to. Big mistake as far as i'm concerned, it's not like Rio Ferdinand is an angel either.


The Recession has taken its toll on me

Since I was a young girl, I always dreamt of being a serious career orientated woman. When I graduated from University last May, I didn't realise the pressure to find jobs would take its toll on me. Sitting on the computer day and night searching for something that just is not there is simply not an option anymore.

A recent survey by Labour shows unemployment growing fastest among 18 to 24-year-olds. The figure for young adults was 597,000 in the three months to October 2008 — up 55,000 from the three months to July 2008. Three million people of all ages are predicted to be out of work by the end of this year and at least 40 per cent, or 1.25m of them, will be under 25.

This just disturbs me, I mean after three years of keeping my head in betweeen a book and working like a crazy woman to achieve high grades, I still have no job. Sometimes I contemplate just giving it all up and working in Tesco's, not that there's anything wrong with that.

In the mean time for all the follow unemployed university graduates out there, chin up, work hard and our time will come...I hope!!
