London

Hey!

I wasn’t really sure what kind of post I should write about London as all I knew was that I definitely wanted to write post related to my school trip to London in any way shape or form … so I decided to tell you about five of the best and worst parts of the trip!

Best

  1. I would have to say the overall highlight of the trip was getting to spend time with my friends and just having such a laugh. Throughout the trip we didn’t stop laughing and for me that’s what made it so special and memorable. We laughed even when we were up far too early to have the most horrific shower of our lives – the room was flooded and that’s all I will say – and we even had fun when we had to eat out at an awful restaurant which burnt the chicken.
  2. This leads on to the next point which is when me and my friends played Cards Against Humanity, in our tiny allotted section of free time one day, it was the most fun game ever but equally the most disturbing and vile thing I have ever seen in my life! if you don’t know what it is its basically a card game where you are have black and white cards, in each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card which have random, creepy and down right scary things written on them. I know it doesn’t sound it but its actually a hilarious game!
  3. Another amazing part of the trip … and technically the main reason for going to London … was when we went to see spectacular theatre performances! We saw High Society on the first night which was VERY AMERICAN not in a bad way its just the only way I can describe it; but it really was an amazing show with a great cast, wonderful music and most importantly a really good story with a perfect ending!!! Then the next day we saw King John in the Shakespeare Globe theatre, which to my surprise was very interesting and not as hard as I expected to understand the only down side was it was far too long and we had to stand through the whole thing. Later on that day we saw Peter Pan in Regents Park Open Air Theatre which was my favourite one by far!!! It was so magical and it was very different from any rendition of the classic Peter Pan I have ever seen but it was night time outside so it got bloody cold! Finally we saw The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, this was also an amazing play as it was so emotional yet so funny at the same time and had a really good twist in the story. Also it was based on a book, that I bought as soon as I got home from the trip and I’m now half way through it and I highly recommend it to all of you!!!
  4. Also one of my favourite experiences of the trip to London was going shopping on Oxford street. I spent far too much money but I didn’t even care as I got to go to the Disney store where I had to buy a few soft toys for me and my niece, then we went to Lush and bought a bag full of amazingness, then we hunted down Forbidden Planet with the aid of Google maps where I bought lots of stuff related to Doctor Who, Marvel, Harry Potter and a fathers day present for my dad, and finally the addiction to buying London souvenirs was too real for me as I got 4 magnets, 2 key rings, a scarf, a notebook and a badge all with LONDON sorta things on them … totalling £100 … approximately … that also includes a couple of McDonald’s for lunch some days and every drink I bought when I was there!
  5. Finally I loved the feeling of being independent. It was so good to be able to arrange my own room and sort out when and where things were happening as well as just walking around with my friends when and where we wanted … but don’t get me wrong I missed and love my mum and dad very much!!!

Worst

*don’t associate this picture of the Peter Pan set & theatre with the title for the “worst” section as in fact Peter Pan was one of the best parts of the trip just was doting the pictures around instead of having them all at the end!

  1. THE TUBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well all I can say is that I will never by choice use the London underground again it was just far too scary, hot, crowded and had my worst nightmare escalators – its just the down ones that I’m petrified of – and they were stepper and longer than ever… Not to mention the fact the doors of the tube just close unexpectedly and without warning when people are still trying to clamber onto the carriage; my first hand experience with these doors went like this … my group was rushing to get on but we were not fast enough I was shoved on and thrown into another group of people from my school my friends arm was almost caught in the door and another person was almost fully trapped in the doors, so yeah we were scared for life.
  2. This links to the fact London was full of creepy people… from pick pockets to drunk people London had it all we were approached on various occasions by men wanting money, strange men just wandering round us and a drunk group of men and women shouting about their dog and singing a song to us. Then there was the pickpockets we saw a lot … there was the “bumper-into-er” this guys who would walk into people by accident and just happen to acquire their belongings the there was the “Gang” the name says it all really and we saw the best of them all the “hander-in-pocket-of-stranger-when-passing-in-the-street-er” basically a man walked beside this women and stole something out of her pocket when they were just crossing the road… thankfully it didn’t happen to me or anyone from my school.
  3. The mornings… I’m NOT a morning person so usually I have a while to adjust before I have to deal with other humans but there I had to be ready right away which was hard since every morning I slept in past my alarms! Then to make things worse as you would expect London was pretty warm so I was extremely hot so my usual make up routine was thrown out of the window the stuff just wouldn’t stay on my face… so I had to make sure i had cleansed and dried my face to perfection and kept all the windows open to assure my make up would go on as normal as possible… in the end it always did.
  4. On the train back to Glasgow the carriage Virgin assigned to our school the air-conditioning was broken .. so “despite their many efforts they couldn’t rectify the problem” …. yeah sure all they did was hand out luke-warm bottles of crap water whilst we were all sweating and baking in the oven they called a carriage for nearly five hours! Our only solace was taking a trip into the other sections of the train which were freezing cold in comparison!!!
  5. Overall the trip was one of the best things I have ever done so all these negatives don’t even matter as the actual worst part of the trip was going home … I had soo much fun and dream of one day going back to London on my own (without the school maybe just with friends kind of alone) It was extraordinary and I highly recommend a trip to London! I would love to live there one day 😄

Top 7 Favourite YouTubers!!!

Hey!!! It’s me again – I told you I would post more regularly!!! 😋 So today I thought I would finally get around to doing a post that I was asked t do AGESSSS AGOOOO!!!!! To be honest the person who asked me to do this probably doesn’t remember and no longer cares but oh well I will just do it anyway!!!😂 Hope you enjoy!

1. Sprinlke of Glitter



  • Also known as Louise Pentland, she makes videos about beauty, lifestyle and fashion. I feel such a connection with her as I can totally relate with everything she talks about and her personality is so kind and seems really genuine. I admire her confidence – booth in her own skin and just in general – I hope I can one day be a fraction as confident as she is!! What I love about her is she is hilarious, has great advice and is beautiful inside and out. Finally, when she vlogs there are just my absolute favourite thing to watch!!

2. Gabriella Lindley

  

  • I can’t even describe how much I adore Gabriella she is such a funny, pretty and normal kind of girl. Plus she loves pretty little liars and Disney so she’s just perfection 😂 She aslo makes beauty, lifestyle and fashion videos as well as having an amazing vlogging channel. I think she’s such a lovely person and dream of meeting her 😍 she recently uploaded her first ever music cover and it was AMMAAAZZZINGGGGG!!!!!! Which adds to the many reasons why I love her – her makeup is always great, she edits her videos really nicely and she is very relatable.

3. Zoella

  

  • OF COURSEEEE!!!!!!!!! How can you not like Zoe, I admit I didn’t always like her or any beauty YouTuber to be honest as in the past I was not that in to makeup etc. But omg Zoe is just goals!!! I love her relationship with her boyfriend Alfie, I love and desperately want their Pug called Nala and her beauty range is to die for!!! I still can’t believe it but I actually meet her ….. Well for like two seconds when she signed my copy of her first book, Girl Online, it was literally the best day ever 😭😂😁 I love how brave and happy she always is because dealing with anxiety and panic attacks on top of YouTube stress and being a celebrity must be bloody hard which I don’t think the “haters” give her enough credit for – and any other YouTuber for that matter!

4. Beckie0

 

  • She is a less well known YouTuber and makes videos about her awful condition called Trichotillomania (stress etc causing extreme hair pulling out) which really make me admire and empathise with her. She also talks about beauty and lifestyle and much more from lush hauls, favoutite films and my favourite videos of hers to watch are Q and A’s!!! She is always a so uplifting and funny person to watch!!!

5. Saccone-Joly’s

 

  • This is an Irish family of vloggers who now live in London. They post vlogs everyday which is the best part!!! The husband is called Jonathan the wife is called Anna, the daughter is called Emilia and their son is called Eduardo they are such a sweet family and allways get up to such fun and interesting to watch kind of things. They have six dogs which are far toooooo cute!!!!!! I think I love watching them so much because I would really love to one day have such an amazing family and yeah they just make everyday that little bit better 😆😁

6. Alfie Deyes

 

  • He is Zoella’s boyfriend and makes really funny videos that just cheer me up all the time. I love his childish and naive nature and he seems like a really awesome person! I love his trying American candy videos and all of his weird challenge videos. I also really like his and Zoe’s Sims videos as I am ADDICTED to the Sims 4!! He also makes really good vlogs as they are pretty much my favourite kind of video to watch.

7. Eve Bennett

 

  • She is a less famous YouTuber, but I still absolutely love her. She makes lots of beauty videos from makeup tutorials to hauls and lifestyle videos like what’s on my iPhone and room tours. I just love her bubbly personality and I’m sure she will soon grow to be a much more well known YouTuber. She is so talented at the whole YouTube thing and is great at makeup as well as the fact she loves the exact same kinds of clothes as me 😄


So there you go hope you liked finding out whose videos I obsess over!!! 😆 I highly recommend you check out each and every one of these people because I love them all soooo much!!!!! There are so many more people I wold love to talk about but if I didn’t narrow it down to only 7 there would be hundreds!!!  Who are your favourite YouTubers? Do we have any that are the same? Also, do you have any recommendations for me as I LOVE finding new YouTubers to watch!!!

Thank you all so much for 200+ followers!!!! Don’t know how that happened!!! Don’t forget to give this a like, comment down below and follow to be the first inline for my next posts! 😜

Yours,

Fangirling Owl

Review: Lush Bubble Bar – ‘Dreamy Candy Bath’

Hey!!! It’s me again … long time no see! – I know what your thinking ” Who the hell is this ….  OHHHHHH yeah… I remeember now … she’s that weirdo from months ago who did a few blog posts … then disappeared off the face of the earth!” If you thought that then my friend you are correct the powerful indesructable force that pushed me to cucoon myself under blankets and books is a certian thing called ….. EXAMS!!!! But now they are OVERRRR!!!!! And I can have a life again!!!!!

I promise you from the bottom of my heart I will post at least once a week and hopefully a lot more than that!!!!

So to kick of my time here again I will be doing a wee lush review – hope you enjoy and now let’s get straight into the review! 😄

Dreamy Candy Bath – Lush Bubble Bar

image

before opening

Of course it’s a Lush product I can’t live without my lush bath every week – before you judge I shower during the week😇 –  it’s what I look forward too after a long week at school! I have tried quite a lot of their products mainly bath bombs and bubble bars my favourites are the Twilight bath bomb and the Comforter bubble bar!!! This one comes with many benefits but one major downfall.

Pros

image

the beauty itself

The bubble bar itself just looks so cute!!!! I love the pink colour and the pretty little flower on the top! And it’s got a slight sparkly tint in it which makes it even more enticing!! Plus I just love the way Lush displays their products in store itthe shops just look so AWESOME… I would absolutely love to get a job in one whilst at university or whenever… 😍

Then the smell…… Oh my god…. It’s amazing… It’s just like candy floss!!! It gave me the feeling of being at a carnival surrounded by roller coasters and clowns – and by whatever else happens at carnivals 😜 – and then the comforting smell of candy floss and popcorn and hotdogs that floats through the air from the food stalls … If that makes sense!!! 😂 I’m one of those people who just loves smells they just take me back to the place where I first smelt them …. Please tell me it not just me!?!?!? 😳

It’s super moisturising … You don’t even understand HOW nice it makes your skin feel so soft!!! You can literally feel it making your skin soft and velvety to the touch whilst siting in your bath! I have Keratosis Pilaris, ( which is when the patches of affected skin will be covered in tiny spiky bumps, which may be white, red or skin-coloured. This spotting looks like “chicken skin” or permanent goose pimples, and the skin feels rough, like sandpaper: it’s not contagious or painful or really harmful so don’t worry it’s actually quite common I know a few people who also have it) and it even made my arms and legs (worse affected areas) feel so smooth and silky soft which I found amazing!!! This is due to the fact the 14 ingredients include fair trade organic cocoa butter, fair trade vanilla absolute and almond oil; they alltogether provide perfect conditioning, softening and hydrating effect on your skin as well as making you, your bath and pretty much your whole house after using it smell gorgeous!!! 😆

It’s perfect for relaxing as the smell combined with the amazing hydrating effect it has on your skin just chill you right out and completely makes you feel bloody brilliant!!!

Finally, the price for such a wonderful and beneficial product…. Is unbelievably only £2.75!!!! WHAT!?!? After using it I really felt like I was using a much more expensive and high end skin care product which adds to the pampering effect that this gives you.

Cons

image

disapointing bubbles

Despite my complete adoration of this product I think it fails in a majorly important area…. It dose t actually make A LOT of bubbles…. Don’t get me wrong it made quick a few bubbles and these felt amazingly moistureising when rubbed on your skin… But they just weren’t that big and there were few and far between… Plus it didn’t turn the bath water pink like I thought it would… It just looked a bit dirty and shimmery!!! Which was all a bit disappointing 😐

Overall

image

I like to cut them up so its easier to crumble

Despite the lack of bubbles and theft the it didn’t change the colour of the water I would 100% recommend this product as it smells gorgeous and I could smell it on my skin for a long time after bathing! Also, I can’t even put into words how well it moistureises your skin and think it would be perfect for anyone with very dry, rough or a fellow Keratosis Pilaris sufferer like me 😁 I will definitely be repurchasing it in the future and it’s so cheap it will be easy to do so!
So I hope you liked this review and please stick around I’m going to be doing an favourite YouTubers Post this week and maybe a wee haul for you!!!
