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!

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-
