Storytime Sundays – My YouTuber Book CollectionΒ 

Hey!! Sorry for only getting round to post till Sunday this week but I was super busy with school and the weekend is the best time for posting and I’m really trying to write in advance but didn’t get a chance to recently but anyhow!! Got my mock exam results back and I got 3 A’s and a C so yeah super happy cause the C was in my hardest class which I’m surprised I even passed tbh 

So today I’m basically showing you all my YouTube related books I have read some of them but this is just a wee overview and I might do a review next week of one of them or another book I have read πŸ˜„

Let’s goooo……

1. Zoella – Girl Online

This was the first YouTuber book I bought and despite all the drama of people saying she didn’t write it, I still like it! To be fair it’s super childish but so am I so I didn’t really mind πŸ˜‚ Also I got to get it signed by Zoe and meet her for like 30 seconds which was amazing!!! However, I really didn’t feel the need to get the second one that came out recently as it’s probably not any better than the first!

image

2. Sprinkle of Glitter (Louise Pentland) – Life with a sprinkle of glitter & her 2016 Diary!

Sprinkle of glitter is my all time favourite YouTuber so when I saw she was bringing out 2 books I knew I needed to have them! I love her life with a sprinkle of glitter book as it gives you some great tips and advice. I also love the diary and use it everyday as each week it has a fun thing on the other page like DIY’s, tips, motivation or any other random fun thing!!!

image

3. Tanya Burr – Love Tanya

This is such an all round good book! It has many different sections like confidence and happiness, life and baking. It’s also got a little bit of a background into Tanya at the start which is lovely and the pictures are beautiful!

image

4. Dan and Phil – The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire!

Ufgghscggfuhhdhd I love Dan and Phil!!!! I got this at their tour – which was also amazing – sadly I didn’t get to meet them we were able to buy them signed at the tour! It’s amazing as it is a full on life story of them both right from when they were born, all through childhood, school up till now! It’s funny and really well written and it feels like I can hear them saying the words as I read it as its so genuine. 

image

5. Pointless Blog (Alfie Deyes) – The Pointless Book 1 & 2

These are a blatant copy of ‘Wreck this journal’ but oh well!!! They are fun and a good thing to do when bored! As they have a task on each page which could be writing stuff in the book, doing stuff outside of the book (like impressions) and destroying the book!

image

6. Carrie Hope Fletcher – All I Know Now

I love Carrie so I asked for her book for Christmas and I got it! I have started to read it and so far it’s great! She is a theatre star which is why the book is layed out like Acts instead of chapters. It gives you good advice as well as funny anecdotes of her life!

image

7. Tyler Oakley – Binge

I haven’t started to read this one yet as I just got this one for Christmas too but even without reading it I know it will be amazing!!! It’s basically an autobiography of Tyler’s life with lots of laughs throughout as well as some sad parts! Can’t wait to read it properly!

Whatever Wednesday – Furry Friend Tag

Hey! This week thought I would do a wee tag post for you I know some people hate tag posts but personally I love doing them and reading them so hope you enjoy! It will be all about my furry friend!!! (As the title told u 😂😜)

The Questions:

1. What is your pets name? – Holly

2. What kind of pet is it and what breed? – Dog and she is an English Springer Spaniel

image

image

3. How long have you had your pet friend? – About 8 years

4. How did you get your pet? – My mum’s friend helps at a rescue dog home and my mum had mentioned to her that she was thinking of getting a dog so a while later – by this time my mum had forgotten she even said anything 😂 – her friend told her she had a dog that was perfect for us and my mum said yes and she went to pick her up there and then!!! She came from a man who hit her and didn’t feed her so it took a while to train her and reassure her but she is a perfect healthy dog now!! My little rescue doggy 😍

5. How old is your pet? – 12 (we think as the dog shelter didn’t know for sure how old she was when we got her)

6. What are some quirky things about your pets personality? – She snores soooo loud, she runs around in circles when she gets excited, she will do ANYTHING for a biscuit, she is super lazy and loves a belly rub!

7. What does your relationship with your pet mean to you? – So so so much, she sleeps in my room at night and if she wasn’t there it would feel so different and lonely. She’s allways there when you need a hug (but probably only cause she wants you to give her a treat after lol 😂😜)

8. What are some of your favorite past times with your pet? – Obviously going on walks but I really like when we go on holiday and she comes with us to the caravan as she’s just so happy and relaxed there and has lots more fun!

9. What are nicknames that you call your pet? – Holly Willoughby (after the TV presenter) and Hollywolly 😄😄😄

So there you go hope you like learning more about me and my doggy!

Whatever Wednesday – My Colouring Book AddictionΒ 

Hey! I’m back for my second post this week all about that weird craze that recently popped up which is adult colouring books. (Not that kind of adult!) They are basically regular colouring books except some are very detailed and complex as well as the fact they aim to relax you and calm the mind.

So I have picked up a couple recently and want to share them with you *in blog form not physically soz πŸ˜‚* I will show you my top 5 favourite ones I have so here goes hope you enjoy!

1. Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom a Colouring Book adventure – Β£9.99
image
It includes all different types of animals like fish, birds,mammals, reptiles as well as trees and flowers too! Which are made up of intricate patterns for your creativity to be put to the test. The illustrations begin quite simple and progress to extremely detailed patterns within the images which is good as it eases you into it gently and then challenges you later. I enjoy colouring the less detailed ones more to be honest as the harder ones just make me more stressed trying to colour within the lines rather than relaxing me! Still really love it though highly recommend it such intricate and detailed drawings and pretty to look at even before you start colouring them! 

20160104_211006.jpg

These are the easy and simple options in the book yet are still really detailed and soo cute!!!

20160106_173330.jpg

SUPER CRAZY DETAILED ILLUSTRATION!!!

Here’s one really pretty one of an owl that I have started but not finished yet – I used watercolour pencils from WHSmith with came in a set of arond 36 I think and were fairly cheep less than Β£10. They are seriously the best pencils to use for this kind of thing; they give a great colour, are easy to blend and create different gradients of colours.

20160106_173652.jpg
I would give it 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

2. Harry Potter Colouring Book – Β£9.99

20160104_210357.jpg

Absolutely love this one as it includes scenes from the film, character shots, creatures and iconic things from the film used to create patterns. This is much easier I think than the previous one but still has the range of easy one and harder ones. It’s really interesting seeing one of my favourite films turned into a colouring book but one negative is that with the illustration below I would find it seriously hard to colour all the way into the centre where the spine of the book is so I think it would look pretty strange but we shall see not attempted one of the big ones yet! What’s also good about this one is there is coloured photos at the back of most illustrations in the book to act as a guide when you are colouring them which is super helpful!

20160104_211200.jpg20160104_211425.jpg

Here’s one I’m almost finished and I loveeeee it the pencils make it even better I think! The thing I love most about these books is the fact the images look so good untouched but have the potential to look soooo much better just with a bit of imagination!

20160106_173924.jpg

 I have to give this one a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

3. Doctor Who colouring book – Β£9.99

20160104_205818.jpg

I’m a total whovian so anything with a tadrdis on it has to be mine but I just lovveeeeeeee this!!! It has patterns created by characters from the show and again range from simple to more detailed. There’s sooo may great choices in this one that it’s hard to know where to start which is defo not a bad thing! My absolute favourite thing about it is the fact it has illustrations of some of the Doctors heads but they are made up by characters and creatures iconic to there seasons!!!! This is one of the books that I’m scared to start colouring in as I don’t want to ruin it!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I aslo use these Stabilo fineliners when colouring in as they are sooo good at getting into the intricate sections in the drawings and are really good quality for around Β£10 for 20.

I have got to give this a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

4. The gorgeous colouring book for grown-ups – Β£9.99

20160104_210303.jpg

This has much more patterns and swirls and shapes and intricately detailed images. It has a range of flower designs to graphic designs. This is one that actually could be relaxing I think as there’s less worry too me that I’m going to ruin my favourite film, TV show or beautiful animal so I think this one wins on that front but honestly it’s not THAT appealing just a bunch of shapes and swirls but I guess once coloured it would look super cool! 

20160104_211601.jpg

20160104_211531.jpg
This is one that I started to colour in really bold and bright colours and I think once finished it will look really effective I love the way in this book the illustrations don’t go all the way into the centre so you are able to reach and colour ever inch of the image! 

20160106_174122.jpg

This one deserves a 3/5 🌟🌟🌟 good but a bit meh!

5. Colouring book from Tiger (between Β£2-4 can’t remember! πŸ™„:oops:πŸ˜›)

20160104_210423.jpg

This is from a shop that opened in my area recently and I have quickly grown to be obsessed by its contents I think it’s origionally from another country not sure wihpch though but they have really cheep quirky good quality stuff in there so I luv it! πŸ˜‚ This one is by far the simplest out of the five but it is also one of the best as it really does relax you as its sooo much less interactive so not worried about going over the lines and the patterns are easier to follow and smaller so quicker to finish! Plus it’s the cheepest so is good to start out on your colouring book journey!

20160104_211627.jpg20160106_173131.jpg

This is one I have actually finished using felt tip pens I got in WHSimth as well it was a pack of about 100 for Β£5 in the sale it has really good colours that are perfect for this book they are bright and have fine tips so could be used in more detailed books too. I like this image as it has really interesting shapes and once all coloured looks really eye catching. 

20160106_173758.jpg
This book is well deserved of a 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I highly reccomend buying these all particularly the Animal Kingdom one if you want to be really challenged and produced really high quality work in the end or if you want a bit of fnu that’s simple and quick the gorgeous colouring book for grown-ups or the colouring book from Tiger. I absolutely love taking time out of my day when I can to sit down a be like a kid again colouring away in a book and yet in the end you can be left with a stunning piece of art made by an adult worthy of a place on your fridge if you where a kid or a couple likes on Instagram if you are older!!  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
So there you go hope you liked that kind of post please don’t forget to like and comment; do you like these kinds of colouring books too?, do you have any of these? Or do you have any other recommendations 0f colouring books for me to try out?! Also give me a cheeky follow if you haven’t allready! You know you want to πŸ˜‹

Makeup Monday’s – Haul

Well hello again it’s nice to see you twice in the same day! Lol anyhoo I thought I would ease myself into this blogging year and start off with a what I got for Christmas/Birthday (as my birthday was yesterday I got some makeup bits then as well) makeup sorta haul … like not a full on showing you everything I got but just showing you the make up bits and my first impressions as I have used most of it once or twice.

So here goes…

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation – Shade 100 Ivory – Β£7.99

image

Best foundation I have ever used, it’s a good coverage and actually last for the whole day don’t know about 25hrs but it lasts for many hours lol. Plus it actually matches my skin tone as I have been trying to get a foundation as pale as me for so long and it finally is!!! Super value for money as well. πŸ˜„

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finsh Primer – Β£6.99

image

I’m late onto the primer boat as this is my first and I have to say it actually has a recognisable difference … The foundation just seems to go on better and last way longer and not cling to problem areas! Overall wish I found primers a long time ago! Will defo repurchase this!

  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder – Shade 005 silky beige – Β£3.99

image

This is an old favourite that I asked to get a replancent for my last one which was basically pan and nothing else as I had used it that much! Just love it as it keeps my makeup in place and I don’t look oily and shinny 😁

  • Rimmel London BB Cream 9-in-1 – Shade Light – Β£6.99

image

Not used this yet but I’m super excited to as I think it will be an easier alternative to foundation everyday for school!

  • Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Liner – Shade 003 Black – Β£5.29

image

Can’t even describe how much I love this! Im teerrribbbllleeee at eye liner and this just makes me 100% better! And it’s water proof and stays on all day!

  • Maybelline New York Fit Me! Concealer – Shade 10 – Β£5.99

image

I have used this once and it’s not too bad cover blemishes but is terrible under eye and it’s sort of my shade but it’s a bit orangey we shall see in time if it grows on me…

  • Maybelline New York Browdrama – Shade Dark Blonde – Β£4.99

image

Not used this yet but I have heard sooooo many good things that I can’t wait to get my brows done and finally use it πŸ˜†

  • Maybelline New York Lash Sensational- Shade Intense Black – Β£7.99

image

This was the most hyped up product in the last few months but I must say it is well worth the hype as it really makes my lashes look so much fuller and longer! The brush is really good at getting to all your lashes, even the tiny ones you don’t even know where there, which is why it gives you that multiplier effect … Absolutely love it πŸ˜‹

  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lip Gloss – Shade Afternoon Tea – Β£5.99

image

You have got love Tanya Burr and her products are no exception her lip glosses are less sticky feeling than others and actually have a good colour pay off!

  • Tanya Burr Cosmetics – Rosy Flush Cheek Palette – Β£8

image

This is just perfect for getting your contouring game on – bronzer is perffffffect and the blush is really pigmented so just a little is needed and the highlighter is a gorgeous shade that gives you a natural glow!

  • Makeup Revolution London Ultra Blush Palette – All about Cream – Β£6

image

Not used it yet but makeup revolution products are usually good quality for really cheap prices so I have high hopes for this!  I have eye shadows from them and they are great!

  • MAC Amplified Creme Lilstick – Shade Girl About Town – Β£15 

image

ITSSSSSS MYYYYYY FFIIRSTTTTT MAAACCC LIPPSTTICK!!!!!!!! and I’m in absolute love with it!!!!!!!!! It’s sooooo nice, creamy yet not sticky and it lasts for a looooonngggg time and dosent fade easily!!! I need to buy so many more I just love it!  

  • Urban Decay – Naked Original Palette – Β£38
    image

    & Urban Decay – Naked Smoky Palette – Β£38

image

I went from having no urban decay eye shadow palettes to having 2 which I’m super greatfull for! The shades are perfect and are super blendable! They are so versatile that hundreds of looks can be created and I love the brushes suplied which I never normally do! I can’t wait to do a makeup look post using one of these!!!

There you go hope you enjoyed that and please remember to like and comment; Do you have any of these – do you like them?, Are you planning on getting any of these or What did you get for Christmas?

New Year = New Posts

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! **even though its a bit late**

Starting off 2016 as I hope to go on… I’ve been working hard behind the scenes to try and make my blog a lot better for you all and I really enjoy writing on here so I never want to give up!

So I gave come up with a “schedule” which is –
🎀 Makeup Monday’s ~ like make up tutorials, hauls, collections, etc…
🎀 Whatever Wednesday’s ~ literally what it says if I do this one I can chose any random idea for a post like a monthly favourites, tag posts, personal things, etc…
🎀 Fashion Friday’s ~ like ootd’s, hauls, look book style posts, etc…
🎀 Storytime Sundays ~ I love books and writing short stories soo I wanted to integrate this into my blog this year be that book reviews or sharing a small story once in a while.

Each week I won’t do all of these but I will try do as many of these as I can manage! Lol

Plus I really want to try not write so much for each post cause I know I would get bored reading hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and sometimes many more hundreds of words in a blog post!

So that’s my wee intro to what’s going on and later on today I will have a Makeup Monday post for you!

There you go hope you got lots of reassurance from that and please remember to like and comment; What day are you most excited to read it’s posts?, How was your Christmas? & Any tips on sticking to writing on your blog would be extremely appreciated!

Thanks for staying btw big hugs to those who don’t unfollow cause I’m a sparadic blog poster and if you haven’t already don’t forget to give me a wee follow! 😄

Yours,

Fangirling Owl
