Throwback Thursdays! “Everlong” by Foo Fighters

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
This is one of the few songs by a band that I feel in general I can say both die-hard and casual fans agree is their best song. It’s one of Foo Fighters best videos, it’s a great rock song and it has a pretty great acoustic version as well. I thought I was gonna say more about this but it turns out that I am not. Enjoy the video!

Michael B. Jordan: An Adonis To Be Thankful For

Guys, listen. It’s Monday. It’s the first day back from a four-day weekend. You stuffed your face with food and then stuffed your ears with Christmas music. We shouldn’t have to be at work right now. But alas, here we are. And I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read this – aka procrastinating your work a bit more. In return, I’m going to stuff your eyes with one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind, Michael B. Jordan. Over the weekend, I saw Creed, the Rocky spin-off movie. If you know me, this may be a somewhat surprising choice for holiday weekend viewing because I usually don’t put sports movies on the top of my list. However, if you do know me, you know I’m a fan of Michael B. Jordan and HBMs in general. On top of that, I kept hearing nothing but good things about Creed, so I caved and went to see it. And let me tell you  – I haven’t been able to…

Birchbox November | Unboxing Video

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
After the disappointment of my October Birchbox (see full post for more details) I was excited when I heard Birchbox were collaborating with the well loved brand Skinny dip (I particularly love their cute phone cases). I thought I would switch things up a bit this month and film an unboxing video, so be sure to head on over to my YouTube channel for all the details of the products I received. To summarise, I loved the appearance of this month’s box – the shells looked so adorable and pastel colours are always a big hit with me. Without revealing too much the products were a mixed bag – but much better than last month, I’m particularly excited to try the Lord and Berry lip liner. I still feel a bit unsure as to whether I will continue my subscription, but I am going to give it one more month. The prospect of a Christmas themed box for December is just keeping me hanging on in there! As I’ve already mentioned be…

The Unfortunate Downfall Of Pemberley Digital

It’s likely you don’t know what Pemberley Digital is or what they do. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries? No? Well, here’s the dealio: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern web adaptation of the famous Pride And Prejudice. It’s done in the style of a vlog and it’s all on YouTube. I heard about it online from someone who thought it was real. I didn’t know anything about Pride And Prejudice (or vlogging for that matter) so I believed it too for the first 20 videos I watched. Eventually I realized it was all thought out and scripted. In the LDB, Darcy managed a company called Pemberley Digital and now, the real life company that made the LBD uses the name. Yes, they pulled a Starkid. 😛 Lizzie (in the center) with sisters Lydia and Jane (top and right, respectively) and best friend Charlotte (left) The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was a huge hit. I had to catch up on the first 40 or so videos, but I got hooked and eagerly awaited the days when a…

Why I Write, A Vlog

I thought I would share with you all about why I like to write. It’s pretty hard to articulate, but I tried my best. If you write, why do you write? If you would like to write, what’s stopping you? Do you have any questions? I’d love to help.

I made cinnamon rolls, twice… sort of

Originally posted on Just my humble life:
Because I had three days of from work, I thought I’d bake something, because that’s hat I like to do when I’ve got some spare time on my hands. It actually took me so long to figure out what I wanted to make, but I decided on cinnamon rolls. The first thing I had to do was make the dough. Everything seemed fine, the dough was nice and elastic and I put it in a warm spot to rise. Two hours later… it hadn’t risen far enough by a long shot. I made the decision to start the dough again and I bought some new yeast. However, I didn’t want to throw away this dough, because it had risen a little bit, so I decided I’d just shape them into bread rolls and bake them. They ended up tasting pretty good, a bit dry, a bit like a scone. The second dough was perfect, it had risen loads and the cinnamon rolls are delicious! I got this recipe from…
