YouTube: Jimmy0010

Standard

Happy Wednesday everyone! We’re half way through the week!

Today I want to recommend a youtuber who deserves more subscribers than he has. Jimmy0010, or James Hill, has only 78, 725 subscribers on his personal YouTube channel and yet, his humour and creativity lends itself to the masses. He does a range of different videos including Q&As, advice, cooking, skits and vlogs, he does it all… and he isn’t always on his own as he has collaborated with some of the best British Vloggers on YouTube such as the likes of Crabsticks, ItsWayPastMyBedTime, Alex Day and Charlie McDonnell.

On the ‘about’ section of Jimmy’s Youtube Channel, this is his personal blurb: ‘Hi, I’m Jimmy and welcome to my channel Jimmy0010. I’m a YouTuber, presenter and writer, I’ve presented on a few different shows, and at the moment you can catch me on ‘The 4:01 Show’ or the YouTube music series Transmitter. Here on my channel you’ll find videos of me just messing around, answering your questions and sometimes trying to give a bit of advice.’

Here are some examples of his work:

PS. Just a little extra info, Jimmy is the most recent person I’ve subscribed to on YouTube and I literally binge watched tonnes of his videos after I did.

Magazines: Superhero Movie Collection

Standard

Today I’m reading SciFiNow’s Superhero Movie Collection Magazine, and I think you should be too! Personally, I’m such a massive fan of superheroes that I bought this very chunky magazine filled with all the superhero movie information you could wish for; from old to new to what’s coming up, it’s all mentioned. I’m going to open the magazine at four random intervals to show you some of what’s inside: 1) Articles on Avengers: Age of Ultron and interviews with the cast, 2) Article on Batman: The Movie, 3) Article on The Crow, and 4) Article on the movie Watchmen. I picked up my copy from W.H.Smiths (a UK news agents) for £9.99, a price which is well worth it for the amount you get.Upcoming Films

Beauty/Skincare: Rhubarb Shower Creme

Standard

Shower CremeWilko Shower CremeA new Monday, a new Beauty and skincare item, a new recommendation. So… today’s recommendation is  Wilko’s Tangy Rhubarb Shower Crème. This pink body wash works well, firstly doing its purpose: cleaning, but also in moisturising the skin and making you smell of wonderful rhubarb. Perhaps for an acquired taste; I think this product is luxurious and smells good enough to eat, really folks, it smells like those Haribo Rhubarb Stars. Delicious. In addition, it was a super cheap purchase. It costs less than a £1 normally and when I got it, it was on sale meaning it only cost me 50p for a whole 250ml bottle.

Quote: Johnny Depp

Standard

If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.’

‘Am I a romantic? I’ve seen ‘Wuthering Heights’ ten times. I’m a romantic.’

‘I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.’

‘There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is same. Only love.’

‘If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that’s it’s okay to be different; that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgement on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different colour.”

Films and TV: The Tourist

Standard

The Tourist Film PosterI recently re-watched The Tourist and I’ve come to the conclusion that I absolutely love the film. Firstly, the cast is amazing: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Timothy Dalton and Paul Bettany are all people I absolutely love. Having Johnny and Angelina cast against each other was also another suave idea as they both are incredible at their jobs and were able to portray the appropriate type of chemistry between each other for their characters and the storyline and it is this mixed with their shared passion that made the two accurately complement each other.

The film is pretty simple in the way it’s portrayed. Yes, it has action scenes, but these aren’t the main focus and are only spotlighted throughout. This was very skilfully done in ensuring the classic romanticism was achieved to further the story. The Tourist has such an intriguing concept in this way and that’s why it can be loved so much and become ever more exciting despite its seemingly simple surface.

In addition, the film’s costumes and make-up were superbly done, Angelina looked stunning throughout and even Johnny’s normal film make-up was done noticeably well.

I truly recommend 2010’s film The Tourist to anyone who still hasn’t seen it because it really is an exciting feel good romance movie.

Food: Walker’s Baked Stars

Standard

Stars Opened PacketStars PacketToday’s food recommendation is Walkers Baked Stars… This may well be a simple and short recommendation but sometimes we just need some lovely crisps to snack on or to fill our lunch boxes. I think these are the most delicious crisps on the planet and this isn’t a new find for me, it’s not just something I’ve tried once and thought were amazing, I genuinely have come back to this brilliant snack time and time again. I prefer the Salt and Vinegar flavour because I like Salt and Vinegar flavoured crisps the most but they do also come in a cheese and onion flavour. Honestly, if you haven’t tried them, go and buy them.
