MY THOUGHTS || Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children [FILM]

Saturday, 8 October 2016

After seeing Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children last Friday, I thought that I would sit down and share with you my thoughts on the movie. I have read the books, all three, by Ransom Riggs and loved every word from cover to cover. With the movie imminent, I started counting down the days until I would see my new favourite brought to life.

I'm not going to lie, I had a lot of thoughts regarding this movie. I spoke for well over an hour and managed to whittle it down to 33 minutes. Yes, it's lengthy but as I said, I loved the books very much and I naturally would have watched it under a microscope. I had also just finished reading the first book for the second time just before seeing the film and so it was fresh in my mind. 

Have you seen the movie? What did you think of it? I would love to hear your thoughts about it and how you felt it transitioned from book to film.

HALLOWE'EN || Black & White Jester

Next up in my Hallowe'en tutorials, is this black & white jester makeup look that was inspired by that headband hat that sits upon my head. I had thought that it would be a Mad Hatter type of look but it wasn't very Mad Hatter. It just so happened that the hat was Mad Hatter like. Ergo, Jester was hereby dubbed. 

I found the headband in my local Asda. It doesn't appear to be available online sadly.

Hallowe'en has officially started over at my YouTube channel. Tomorrow is October 1st which is scary in itself because this year has flown in. Where has the time gone? But since tomorrow is October, I thought it would be fitting to start off with a Hallowe'en tutorial. 

This look was inspired by the raven and black roses headband that I found in my local Asda. It simply screamed this look at me. I stared into those beady red eyes and next thing I knew, I became a raven queen. I hope you guys like this look as much as I do. 

MY THOUGHTS || Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs

Monday, 19 September 2016

If you have been following me on social media recently or have been around these parts lately, this video will not come as a surprise. Coming off of my Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children book high (and I'm still riding those coat tails because the film is just around the corner), I was looking forward to the release of Tales of the Peculiar.

This book is based on a book that is featured heavily within the Miss Peregrine universe. The amusing thing about this book is that Millard Nullings, a character from Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, gets an authorship nod seemingly over Ransom Riggs. Millard gets to dedicate the book, introduce it, edit it and interject footnotes every now and then. You'll have to watch the video to find out the other thoughts that I had about the book.

As with my previous chatty videos, I'm still gaining confidence with speaking to the camera and with finding my voice. I know what I want to say. I simply struggle with connecting my brain to my mouth and getting everything to come together. 

Let me know what your thoughts are on Tales of the Peculiar? Don't forget, stay peculiar.

PALETTE REVISITED || W7 In The Buff Makeup Look

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

I did another Palette Revisited makeup look. In this one I unearthed W7's In The Buff eyeshadow palette. It has the reputation of being similar to an Urban Decay Naked palette. I'm not entirely sure which one it's a dupe for. It could be a combination of two of them. 

It's a largely unused palette as you will see in the video. One shadow has been well loved. I used this particular eyeshadow for a week when I was performing in Sunset Boulevard last October. 

Check out my previous palette revisited tutorial here.

TUTORIAL || Miss Peregrine [Eva Green] Inspired Makeup Look

Tuesday, 6 September 2016

You had to know that with being obsessed with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children that a makeup tutorial would be around the bend. 

As soon as I saw Eva Green's makeup for Miss Peregrine, I fell in love and knew that I wanted to recreate it.

Also, if you missed it, I uploaded a video on my thoughts about the books. Stay peculiar, everyone.

Why Haven't I Been Blogging?

I'm aware that I've become rather absent around these parts. The only time that I post seem to be the times when I cross-post a YouTube video. It's not that I've fallen out of love with blogging. It's simply that I haven't found anything that I've found worth blogging about. I have many ideas but nothing that has my sparked my interest into converting idea into action.
