My Guilty Pleasures- The Secret Me

Hello All...

So today I wanted to do something a little different to what we normally see here at stonesgotstyle. As you may know if you follow me on Twitter I have recently reached the rather exciting milestone of 150 followers over on Bloglovin and to celebrate I wanted you to all get to know me a bit more by sharing some of my many, many guilty pleasures. So let the cringe worthy fun begin. 

Starting with the obvious and probably biggest one:

So I'm not sure if any of you have realised yet but I have a bit of an obsession (I say bit I mean a full blown obsession) with the great, the actually let's face it flipping incredible Mr. David Bowie! It's Love I'm telling you! This all started when I first discovered the VHS (going old school) of Labyrinth in amongst the faux book case of VHS in my Step Dads house, from the first moment I watched it It was love! David Bowie aka Jareth aka the Goblin King was my first crush and I still to this day stand in my bedroom, close my eyes and repeat 'I wish the Goblin King would take me away right now' and I am telling you ladies it may not have happened yet but one day I will be the Goblin Queen!

Can I also just say that it was David's birthday yesterday so let's just all join me in saying a huge "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to my future husband (sorry David Tennant).  

Speaking of Mr.Tennant Dr.Who is another one of my 'guilty pleasures' although I refuse to believe that it is a guilty pleasure hence my leaving it out. It's just too good I tell you.

Now another one of my movie based guilty pleasures (of which there's many) comes to you in the form of a musical. All I am going to say is that it is a Cliff Richard musical. Can you just see the cheese bubbling off it. Safe to say Heathcliff the musical didn't open to critical acclaim and Cliff's musical career on the stage didn't really take off but that doesn't stop me from being actually in love. I used to watch my mums VHS of this every single day (no lie) after school, Cliff was another one of my crushes he may not be the Goblin King but he is Heathcliff and I live for Wuthering Heights as a story!

Also good news guys you can watch the full musical in all its Cliff glory over on Youtube! 

Let's all just take a break from the films now and move onto a food item. Everybody has those odd recipes that they just can't get enough of but makes others stomachs turn and mine is currently Primula (a squirty cheese, need I say more) and ketchup toasted sandwiches. Yummy! Honestly guys you HAVE to try it. Top tip: I also sometimes swap it up for cottage cheese and ketchup sandwiches, oh the nutrition. 

This next one you might not think of as a guilty pleasure after all it was not only a bestselling book but a blockbuster movie franchise, however let me just tell you my friend that the level in which I took my love for this series is the guilty part of this pleasure. Yes it was crime worthy. Picture this at the ripe old age of 18 fresh into my University room I literally plastered the walls with posters, magazine cut outs and little novelty character cards of the series. My skin was pale white (and slightly sparkly), my hair dark and unbrushed, constantly being flipped across my head in a Bella Esq gesture whilst I noored at my bottom lip.  I even took it upon myself to inform a girl in the Que at a Twiathon who told me she was Team Jacob, that there would be no book without Edward, so how can she be Team Jacob? Oh yes, I was one of those, and I wonder why I'm single.

And finally for your amusement I will leave you with a few more of my many odd celebrity crushes, this list could go on forever:

  • Snape aka Alan Rickman
  • Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka, Edward Scissorhands and the animated Victor Van Dorf.
  • David Cameron (I'm hoping it's a power thing)
  •  Derren Brown
  • Adam Richman (from Man v Food) 
  • Sacha Baron Cohen
So that is all for today guys, I don't want to freak you all out too much. I hope you enjoyed today's post and that it gave you a bit of an insight into my personality. Let me know your guilty pleasures and odd crushes in the comments down below I'd love to know if theres any we share!

Until next time.
