SQUEEE. You see this picture? You see where it says 'Painting With Words' ? THAT'S MY NEW BLOG NAME. Which means: ZOMG THERE'S MY QUOTE FROM MY ANGEL REVIEW!!!!!!!! Congrats to the other gorgeous bloggers who got their quotes in their too!
So. I came back from my holiday on Monday! Woo! The week has been pretty tough for me though, which is why I haven't written any posts and haven't really been on Twitter. It turns out that the two things I was most looking forward to when coming back were the things that ended up causing me the most pain. There'll probably a post about it soon. Well not about it, but about the effects of it. Lol. 

New blog layout and design will be sorted soon and other changes with content and such. PLUS a newer, more organised me who doesn't procrastinate all the time and spend hours on Tumblr (which puts me behind on reviews which puts me behind on schoolwork). Bleurgh.

What did you guys get this week? What have you all been up to in the summer holidays? HOW MUCH DID YOU MISS ME?
