Since You've Been Gone...

So as you know, I had the first part of my finals in January and had to take THE  longest break ever from bleurghing...and BOY oh BOY did I miss tapping away on Blanche filling you bubbas in on the ins and outs of life through my non-20/20 eyes LOL
This post is dedicated to things I missed and did in the time I was away. Its probably gonna be the longest post EVER but hope it keeps you entertained! :)
BLEURGHSESSIONS
Although I stopped bleurghing, I am obsessed with Blogger that I couldn't quite stay away from my fave BLEURGHsessions! The ones that kept me going through the exam stress had to be 'Black Girls Are Easy' (hilarious stuff! Posted this on my twitter - @onyxsta - cos I was laughing so hard on the bus when reading the 'Men Choose, Women Settle' piece that the other passengers were giving me the 'loco, lock her up in a psychi-ward' glare). And my FAVE female quad-bloggers '4Aces' made an EPIC return to blogging....*sigh of relief*....oh how I missed them!

MUSIC WHILE YOU WAIT
One thing that definitely helps me relax, party, zone out...anything really, is MUSIC! I am a lyric freak (as you know) and from now on, the *Soundtrack of the Minute* posted at the top will have a link to the song via YouTube :)
But anyway, I thought I'd share a snippet of my revision playlist with you guys:
  • Nicki Minaj: Save me | Fly | Moment For Life
  • Drake: I'm Ready For Ya
  • Chipmunk ft Chris Brown: Champion
  • Dr Dre: KUSH
  • Fantasia: Even Angels
  • Jamie Foxx: WInner
  • Jazmine Sullivan: 10 Seconds | Stuttering | Luv Back | Excuse Me
  • Keri Hilson: All The Boys | Toy Soldier | Beautiful Mistake
  • Adele: Turning Tables | Love Song | Someone Like You
Fur Head Candy : Primark | Fur Collar : Etam (detached from an OLD cardigan that got ruined in the wash)
Neck Candy : ?? (Detached from an OLD clutch) | Jumper : H&M | Wellies : Hunter
ZODIAC FREAK
I'm not one to stalk my star sign (Scorpio for those that care to know) daily trying to figure out why this happened or what cosmic synergy occured that prompted so-and-so to act the way they did....blah! But I wont deny the fact that when I go past the horoscope page in a magazine, I read it religiously.....or believe in the crappy superstition that you can't read another person's star sign etc. And as the secretive, sassy, complicated female that I am, I have been one to be pigeon-holed in the characteristics of a typical scorpio. So when I heard that there was an extra sign and all of a sudden I wasn't a scorpio anymore....erm....say what?? LOL...NO!

INDEPENDENT BLOGGER
I joined the Independent Bloggers as you can see from the badge on the top right of the page....I'm so excited to broaden the audience of BLEURGH! And as the readership and fanbase keeps growing, I want to venture into new things. As you know, I have a voice and hate being caged or typecasted into one box. So this year I want to upload 'Haul' YouTube videos, guest write or feature on other blogs, review different products and places....can't wait!
