Beauty: Zoella’s Perfume

Standard

dsjfhjd
I am recommending Zoella’s Blissful Mistful Fragranced Body Mist.

I have very much adopted the YouTube culture of this decade, with many YouTubers bringing out books and products. Some of these include beauty products from Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur de Force and Ruth Crilly and stationary from Jim Chapman under the name ‘James and Friends’. I’ve not yet bought myself any of these products although I do have a few YouTuber books. Anyway, my friend bought me Zoella’s perfume for my birthday earlier this year and I have genuinely loved it.

It smells good! The perfume smells sweet and girly but don’t be mistaken, it’s not a children’s perfume,Zoella_Blissful_Mistful_45ml_1411576372_main it’s suited for young adults, although that doesn’t stop anyone who wants to wear it from wearing it of course.

It lasts forever! My birthday was in February and I kid you not, that I’ve been wearing this perfume so often, especially in the latter part of the year: I’ve been wearing it every day for a while now and there is still a third of perfume left! The size of the perfume is 45ml – well worth the money.

It’s cheap! You can find Zoella’s products at Superdrug and it tends to sell at £8 a bottle and right now (see date of post) at my local Superdrug, all of the Zoella products are on sale 3 for 2!

‘I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about’.

‘I thought, if people are going to write about what I’m wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity’.

‘My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder’.

‘Yes, I will put it out there – I will work for anyone for free if they’re prepared to make their clothing Fair Trade and organic. It’s really hard to get people interested in it’.

‘I don’t have perfect teeth, I’m not stick thin. I want to be the person who feels great in her body and can say that she loves it and doesn’t want to change anything’.

‘If anyone else played Hermione, it would actually kill me’.

 ‘If we stop defining each other by what we are not, and start defining ourselves by who we are, we can all be a lot freer’.

‘If not me, who? If not now, when?’

‘For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that man and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes’.

‘Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… it is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals’.

YouTube: Ruth Crilly ‘A Model Recommends’

Standard

05e65b56-058a-4a8d-9582-97fdc46dcb20_seven_hundred Today I’m recommending model and YouTuber Ruth Crilly. Ruth has ‘been an international fashion model for over ten years’. Her YouTube channel, A Model Recommends, contains beauty, style and lifestyle videos. She posts make-up tutorials, hauls, monthly favourites and vlog style videos on a regular basis. Recently Ruth had a baby who can be seen in her vlogs and baby related reviews, products and videos have been seen throughout Ruth’s more recent videos.ruthcrilly3-730x534

I really enjoy Ruth’s videos, especially her vlogs, since it’s really interesting to follow a model around and hear her hints and tips. Additionally Ruth is a really nice, down to earth woman who is committed to giving honest reviews and information. Here are some of Ruth’s videos:

Enjoy!

Film: Spectre

Standard

12002410_1134539806560929_7647752797114155043_oFor my blog, October was Bond month in anticipation and excitement for the new film in the franchise, Spectre. As you have probably gathered, I am a massive fan of James Bond, and have been watching the entire franchise start to finish over the summer in preparation. So… on Halloween, I went with my father to the cinema.

The opening scene is fantastic! I loved it so much. I loved James Bond in his outfit and the way the camera followed him throughout the shot and into the action. Without giving too many spoilers these first scenes were very well crafted including all of the shots and stunts… Yes I am a Media Student and yes good cinematography is something that pleases me.

The main characters, pretty much the same as the past three 007 films, are just as endearing as ever and becoming more of a united front and a close family. Additionally, the villain is as intriguing as ever and made the narrative very enjoyable (especially if you’re a fan of the old Bond films). All of these characters, of course, were played by an amazing cast including: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott, Rory Kinnear and many more…

The storyline summary can be seen as follows; ‘A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE’. (Source)

With little more to say than that I really enjoyed this film, I will leave you with the trailer and hope that you go on to watch and enjoy Spectre too.
