Quote: Stephen Fry

Standard

fav-1107‘Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the world’s full octave.’

‘Taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It is an insult to creation not to experience it fully. Temperance is wickedness.’

‘It is a cliche that most cliches are true, but then like most cliches, that cliche is untrue.’

‘It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common.’

‘They are just 100 per cent bear, whereas human beings feel we’re not 100 per cent human, that we’re always letting ourselves down. We’re constantly striving towards something, to some fulfilment.’

‘My life, at least, is divided between writing and performing and mixtures of the two.’

‘An original idea. That can’t be too hard. The library must be full of them.’

YouTube: Carrie Hope Fletcher

2788821300000578-0-_You_have_to_make_things_happen_and_create_opportunities_not_jus-m-5_1428940861315Today I’m recommending Carrie Hope Fletcher, and yes, you may be thinking I’ve already recommended her YouTube channel in the past but that was in connection to Tom and Giovanna Fletcher’s channels too (See that post here).

Carrie has been on YouTube for many years now and, through her honesty, her genuinely lovely character and her positivity, has been able to build a successful following online. Her videos are in a sit-down vlog style but occasionally Carrie will post a follow-me-around ‘daily’ vlog. Topics within her videos include Disney, covers of songs, her life and her work, her writing and general discussions and mini ‘motivational’ speeches.

Carrie is a very talented young lady with an amazing voice which she uses to sing covers, create original songs and for a living; she works playing Eponine in the West End’s Les Miserables. On top of  this, Carrie is a published author with her autobiographical non-fiction novel ‘All I know Now’ and she is currently writing her second novel, her first fiction book, ‘On the Other Side’ (which I cannot wait to buy and read).

With little else to say, check out her videos (examples below):

YouTube: Carrie, Tom and Gi Fletcher

Standard

tomToday, I’m recommending three youtube channels at once. ‘Why?’ you ask… because these three channels are very similar and because the three people are related and between them conduct the series ‘Dear Tom, Dear Gi, Dear Carrie’.

Tom Fletcher is an English musician from the popular bands, and my favourite bands, McFly and McBusted. His sister is Carrie Hope Fletcher and carrieshe became a fairly popular YouTuber and so, following in her footsteps, Tom started to update his YouTube channel regularly. Soon to join the YouTube bandwagon was Giovanna Fletcher, a published author, Tom’s wife and Carrie’s sister-in-law.

The three of them, in their ‘Dear…’ series, each post a video once a week updating each other on the events of their lives in the past week or two while asking questions to the other person. Tom usually talks about McBusted and life in a giband, Carrie usually talks about her job and the wonderful opportunities she gets through being both a YouTuber and a cast member of Les Miserables in the West End and Gi usually talks about writing, or being a mother.

Now individually, their channels are brilliant. I genuinely love watching their videos so much. All three of them are so down-to-earth and get to do these amazing things.

Tom Fletcher. Musician. His videos are usually sit-down vlogs but he also has built lego, drawn disney characters, sung covers both with Gi and on his own as well as follow-me-around vlogs on video shoots and days out with his son Buzz. Tom is also known for his viral ‘Wedding Speech’ video.

Carrie Hope Fletcher. Musician. Writer. Actress. Blogger. Vlogger. YouTuber. A very talented young lady, Carrie is not only a very successful YouTuber, she also plays one of the lead roles in Les Miserables as Eponine as her day job. She also is currently touring around the UK on ‘The War of the Worlds’ tour. In 2015, she realises her first book. Her videos include; sit-down vlogs, follow-me-around vlogs, music covers, booktube videos and tag videos.

Lastly, Giovanna Fletcher. Actress. Writer. Gi, like Tom, trained as an actor. Although, she really enjoys acting she found her forte in writing and she now has two novels and a novella to her name.

Check out their channels and enjoy!
