A change is coming…

Standard

Hello everyone!

As you have probably noticed my posts are becoming less frequent and less regular. I’m going to start posting only once a week on this blog. Part of this is because I’m running out of content for you guys and I don’t want to become too repetitive but also as I’m going to have to devote my time to university assignments and a new blog. This new blog is going to follow my media course. If you are interested in checking that out, you can click here. Posts will be starting shortly.

I hope you can stick with me as I lessen my blog’s schedule once again and hopefully in Summer I can start posting three days a week again.

Thank you,

2015 in review

Standard

I just wanted to share this review with my followers; I am very grateful for your support in my blog and in returning and commenting. I can only hope 2016 is as good, thank you.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 47 trips to carry that many people.

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!

Book: The Glam Guide by FleurDeForce

Standard

812wXX2k9+LYouTube and the YouTube culture has increased dramatically in the last two years with many popular YouTubers being accepted into mainstream entertainment. With this has come the opportunity for many individuals on the platform to write and publish their own books in conjunction to their channels.

Now being a fan of many YouTubers myself, I have bought and read the books of some of my favourite YouTubers. Today I’m recommending Fleur De Force’s The Glam Guide.

Fleur De Force, who I have recommended on my blog before, is a beauty and lifestyle blogger and YouTuber online. She posts videos on beauty products, tutorials, reviews and fashion on her main channel, daily vlogs on her second channel and recipes and cooking on her food channel which she does with her husband, Mike, in connection to Sainsbury’s.20150406_124010

From this, she decided to write a book with the main purpose to inform and teach people about make-up and her recommended techniques and tips. The Glam Guide goes through beauty, hair, fashion, travel, health and fitness, life, love, YouTube and blogging and is very much the epitome of Fleur and her presence online.

Having an interest in beauty is pretty much necessary as a reason to pick up the book but The Glam Guide offers a lot more than that. It includes first date advice, confidence tips and motiv54db5507ec92dation; it includes recipes for juices and smoothies and a section on dreams and what they mean. All of this was deeply interesting to me and I really enjoyed reading it. Additionally, being a massive fan of Fleur I enjoyed seeing her voice throughout and especially reading the note to her subscribers at the very end of the book.

I saw myself reaching for the book at every opportunity that I could. Part of this was because of Fleur’s voice throughout but also the overall care and attention that this book has been privy to throughout its making is just so evident and it means so much more to read it. I just think it is beautifully laid out and has incredible illustrations.

I hope you check out Fleur and her channels and if The Glam Guide appeals to you, that you check that out too!
