The memory wall

Hey you guys!

So for a few years now i’ve been mindlessly piling up old photos and radnom business cards on my wall and i have to say… it’s turned out quite big.

You name it, it’s on there. Old baby photos, origami, bottle lids, kinder egg surprises, letters, random business cards… you get the picture

Decorating my room has become a habit for me recently, i have posters, cameras, art, all kinds of random things that you wouldn’t find in a bedroom normally. The most recent addition has been fairy lights. I’ve always wanted to create a relaxing space in my room, like so-

I think i’m close to a nice cosy place to relax, just in time for my GCSE’s ūüôā

Exciting News!

Hey guys! Merry december everybody!

I have a few things lined up for you guys this month, today i would like to introduce you to something.

Y’know that blog post i did about YouTube? (x)

Well you may of noticed i said i might start my very own YouTube channel, and well, you guessed it.. I did!

I’ve always enjoyed filming things, even as a small child i wanted to steal my mum’s old brick camera to record myself dancing or acting. I used to love writing stories too, although the whole time i was thinking ‘it would be so much easier to just make a film!’

At the same time i discovered this brilliant website where you could watch a cat meowing at it’s own reflection, a dancing parrot and a dog that says what sounds like, ‘I love you’ Many years passed and i discovered a whole new community on this website, yes you’ve guessed it, the website was YouTube. I love to watch people’s favourites of the months and others letting me know what they’ve been up to this week and i couldn’t help thinking, ‘I can do that’

So months ago i purchased a Tripod and gave it a go. It was a lot harder than i though so i figured i should just give it a miss and watch all these amazing people do it instead, but last week I went on a trip to Germany and decided to film it, i’m not in it (although my friend Ethan featured in it a lot) but i hope to carry on this whole YouTube experience

LONG STORY SHORT- I started a YouTube channel.

Please check it out here, subscribe and watch my new video, i will be doing lots of fun filming of days out or random happenings.

As always, keep blogging my Fox’s!

The Fault in Our Stars – Book Review

tfios

Yo guys, today i’m reviewing the Fault in Our stars, ¬†the most recent big book on the shelves.

Written by John Green, The Fault in Our Stars is the story of Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters, two Indianapolis teenagers who meet at a Cancer Kid Support Group.

Although this is a book about cancer, it is not a cancer book. It is not your typical ‘tragic’ book and frankly, I think it is a lot more than that. It is romantic too and very heartwarming,. Throughout the book, I really warmed to the characters, especially Augustus who is not only charming and kind but very witty. The characters are written in such a way that they seem very very real and that is both the book’s strength and weakness because personally, I was incredibly attached to Hazel and Augustus.

Hazel and Augustus mutually fall in love with each other and use Augustus’ “cancer perk” to visit Amsterdam to meet their favourite yet reclusive author. However, the cancer kicks in and Augustas falls ill, even worse than Hazel who has terminal lung cancer and their lives are soon cut off too soon. ¬†I wont completely spoil it for you, get the book online or at your nearest book store and you will completely understand, read it soon as the movie is coming out in 2014, me and my friends cannot wait to see the story come to life!

Lush

So we’ve all heard of Lush right, or we’ve all at least smelt it!

I adore it, me and my friends enjoy to have little trips to lush and have a little haul, its bad but so good! I’m going to show you guys my favourites,

Dark Angels– Dark Angels is my regular face scrub and it is absolutely brilliant! i noticed a change in my skin after a matter of days! Highly recommended, one small pot last a long time and totally worth the price

Think Pink– I got this bath bomb as a free sample once and had to go to the shop and stock up! It makes your bath into a lovely pink colour and also smells like heaven!

Magic Wand– I love a bubble bath and this, is perfect. All you do is swish it around in the bath and voila, the perfect bubble bath!

Todays YouTube video is Zoella doing a traditional Lush Haul!

Magical rainbow adventure

The magical rainbow adventure, you’ve probably heard and maybe created yourself, a melted crayon picture.

PJ Liguori, a YouTuber (since I’ve been gone I have developed an obsession over YouTube, I’ll explain further later on) made a video, quite some time ago, and it was how to make a Magical Rainbow Adventure. I’ve been meaning to do it for quite some and i thoroughly enjoyed it-
