Christmas: Fleur’s Gift Guides and Videos

Standard

Fleur DeForce on YouTube is becoming a regular recommendation on my channel. This time is because of her wonderful Christmas videos, mainly gift guides, which I love to see every year. Since I’m not able to make my own gift guides on my blog this year, which were largely influenced by Fleur’s videos last year anyway, I thought I’d leave you with her wonderful (and recent) videos.

Enjoy!

TV and Film: Doctor Who

Standard

dskjhfdToday I’m recommending Doctor Who once again, because yes, it’s that time of year. Doctor Who is back on our screens and well into its ninth series with only two or three more episodes to go.

Many people were unsure about Capaldi’s doctor last series, but I think he’s now well-adjusted and has settled into the role quite successfully. I love his unique relationship with his companion Clara, who keeps him balanced when he could quite easily go off on one or be mean or too extravagant.

The episodes this series have been quite incredible with interesting plots and characters. There have also been a lot of two-parters which is actually really good so we can gain more detail from each story. There have been ups and downs as you would expect with any good TV show and… there have been incredible speeches from both the Doctor and Clara.

I’ve been loving these episodes massive amounts so… If you’ve missed this series, or never watched Doctor Who, it is never too late to jump in and I hope you really enjoy it!

Last year I did gift guide posts as we got closer to Christmas, this year, I have to admit, I don’t have time. But… I didn’t want to just neglect the idea altogether so today I leave you with TalkBeckyTalk’s recent videos (plus a lush haul video she put up) and on Monday, I’ll share with you some of Fleur DeForce’s Christmas videos.

November ‘What I’m’

Standard

17012621_1300x1733What I’m watching – Currently in my spare time I’ve been watching Happy Endings, which I think is the same as last month too, it’s a comedy about five friends that live in Chicago. I just love the series and I love the characters!

Additionally, I’ve started re-watching Suits (starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams). If you’re unfamiliar, Suits is a show about Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, who, after a drug deal gone wrong, finds himself in the office of New York’s best lawyer, Harvey Spectre, who gives him a job.

I nearly forgot all about Doctor Who, series 9 is airing currently and I’m loving it, and I’m a Celebrity, which is also airing at the moment.

What I’m subscribing to – This month I have been watching so much Cereal Time, a breakfast show hosted my Charlie McDonnell and Jimmy Hill. This channel is rather silly but very entertaining to watch especially if you’re already a fan of the channels Charlieissocoollike and Jimmy0010.

jonnI’ve also just finished watching Jonny’s video on the channel ‘I read books in nightclubs’ and thought it was a good time to recommend his videos again. So please check out both of these channels if you haven’t already.

What I’m listening to – My favourite song right now, which has been played on repeat, is Ocean Drive by Duke Dumont.

However, my favourite band right now is Busted. Now, if you know me, you’ll know that I love McFly and I’ve subsequently loved McBusted who have been touring and making music together over the last couple of years. All this time I’ve loved Busted, of course, but I would never have believed that the bBusted-Reunionand would reunite for another tour, let alone make new music together… but alas, the impossible is reality and in May of 2016 I am going to see Charlie, Matt and James play as Busted with both old and new songs! I’M SO EXCITED. I GET TO SEE CHARLIE LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME!

What I’m eating – Brioche. This may seem totally random but today I tried Brioche for the first time ever and will now be buying it much more regularly. That is all.

What I’m quoting – ‘Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding’. – Albert Einstein.

YouTube: BBC Doctor Who

Standard

series-9-wallpaper-4x3This Wednesday I’m recommending the BBC’s Doctor Who YouTube Channel.

As you might know, if you’ve been on my blog long enough, I really love the BBC show Doctor Who, both old and new episodes.

Every week on this channel, there is a ‘Fan Show’ video hosted by Christel Dee. I love this show especially recently since they have been ‘reviewing’ the latest Doctor Who episodes. Christel, joined by Luke Spillane, and usually one or two other guests, discuss the events of the latest episode sharing their favourite moments, their theories and their anticipation for what’s to come. I find these videos very interesting.

Other videos shared on this channel include interviews with the cast, behind the scenes videos, introductions, teasers or trailers for the coming episodes, scenes from old and new episodes and the odd tutorial.

See below for a couple of the Doctor Who videos…
