[Youtube] Betty Crocker Is Bae


Suppose I should start this by apologising. To you, and to myself. I did promise myself that I would make a video every day but GOD, it's a lot of effort. It's worse when you are literally doing nothing all day and today I've had to force myself to do anything because of how I feel within myself. It's amazing how low you can feel when you aren't working and you're just stuck looking at the same four walls all day long. I've decided that I'm not going to do everyday, but try with two a week. That means I can vlog properly and actually have something to show you. 

Thank you to anyone and everyone that has viewed my stupid little videos. I'm still getting the hang of this, but talking to a camera is starting to feel normal now, which is a huge step from someone who didn't want to be in front of the camera like that. I'm not a youtuber, I'm certainly no Zoella. I'm just trying to get out of my comfort zone and I hope you will come on that journey with me. 

I really would like some more ideas of what people want to see, because I'm aware that I am doing the stereotypical, generic videos that you see all the time online at the moment. So any suggestions would be great. I'm slowly trying to insert more **me** things in them so they aren't as girly and annoying as most youtube videos tend to be. 

Ranty rant over, please give it a quick watch (in HD!) and let me know what you're thinking inside of those lovely little heads of yours. Please subscribe as well, that'd be well cute x

[Youtube] Day 3: It's Too Flippin Hot

1 comment

Hello! So today has been like the hottest day of the year, ever. It's been 32 degrees in the North of England and it has been unbearable. I have done nothing today, nothing, nothing at all, whatsoever. I tried to film and it was just such an effort in this heat. So instead I made a video I originally was never going to make, and that's of me...just talking. Mostly about not making a video and letting myself down, but yep. Here I am, in all my annoying Northern glory. 

After editing this video I noticed that I touch my hair way too much. I think it's a nervous thing, I never wanted to have myself on youtube like this - ask anyone who knows me. I'm not about this lifestyle. I don't want to be on camera like this. But for the sake of my video project I took one for the team. And it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I sort of enjoyed it, which is great because it means that I can do more videos and actually speak and be a part of this community more.

I dunno why you'd watch this, but if you do, stick it in HD. And please subscribe! It would mean the world to me.

[YouTube] Day 2: Quick Morning GRWM

Leave a Comment

Day two on my little filming mission. Today I decided to do a very quick and short Get Ready With Me/Morning Makeup Routine. I am in no way, shape or form, any sort of makeup artist. I just wanted to do something that I do every single day, something that I enjoy. It's not meant to be serious, in fact it's very, very silly. Mostly because I spend most of it dancing along to Iggy Azalea.

I'm starting to feel more confident in myself, not just in filming but in being in front of a camera. So this was actually super enjoyable to make. It'd be super cool if you could give me some ideas for videos as well, tell me what you'd like to see - or if you want me to stop clogging up your feed with videos then also please tell me! I can take the rejection, I promise.

Watch in HD :)

My First Youtube Video [sort of]


[I'm still waiting for the thumb-nail to upload properly - grumble grumble]

In an effort to "better" myself and keep myself busy during this slump that I have currently found myself in, I have decided to film pretty much every day and make short, little videos about my life. Whilst this may seem extremely self-indulgent, I think that documenting my last Summer before I go off and become a proper adult will be good for me, and I'll probably learn more doing and experimenting than I ever did at University. 

I am going to use these videos as a learning experience and I hope you'll stick around for the journey! 

This is day one. Footage taken in Leyland. This video focuses on the use of light break overlays and using the speed/reverse feature. I sort of love how it came out, it's very cute and kind of music videoy. I'm only hoping that as time goes on my videos will be even better.

Make sure you watch it in HD! It'd be fantastic if you could follow me on Youtube (and I'll follow back, just leave a comment on here or...well wherever!). Let me know what you think!

*Real talk* I don't usually do tags on my blog, it's more of a preference thing rather than anything else. But since my lovely friend Stephanie tagged me in it, and well...let's be honest, I'm out of blog post ideas at the moment, I thought I'd give it a go.

Here are the rules:
1) Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link them in your post.
2) Answer the ten questions you have been sent.
3) Come up with 10 questions of your own.
4) Spread the love and nominate up to 10 bloggers!


1. What was the last movie you watched? How was it?
The last movie I watched was The Fugitive, which Kieron made me watch last night. I didn't think that I was going to enjoy it to be honest, if it's not a comedy or a cartoon then I don't tend to want to watch films. It was actually really good, a bit of a classic to be honest. So yeah, I enjoyed it.

2. What's your favourite pizza topping?
So I really like margherita pizza with sweetcorn on it. That's my favourite. But I also love vegetarian pizza as well. Nothing with meat on or ewt though - ick.

3. How do you take your eggs?
All ways! My favourite has to be boiled egg/"dippy egg" with loads of bread for dipping. Delicious.

4. What's your favourite drink?
Alcoholic - definitely Pimms. Hands down, without a doubt. Pass me one right now! Non-alcoholic - Vimto. I drink Vimto like it's going out of fashion, we literally go through like 5 bottles in a week in my house.

5. Here's a free plane ticket. Where's it going to?
FLORIDA. Obviously. Get me on that plane, get me to Disney World and let me live my life happily. 

6. Everyone likes cheesy boybands, which one is/was your favourite?
Firstly, not true. I don't think I've ever listened to a cheesy boyfriend in my whole entire life. So I guess I'd have to say something like Busted, although I was never that big of a fan. I'm not about the cheesy boyband life.

7. Have you ever been to a music festival? If yes: which one, and how was it? If no: would you like to go to one, and why/why not?
I've been to Leeds festival before, which was amazing and fantastic and everything I ever thought it would be. I'd definitely go back, it was such an amazing weekend full of booze, music and mischief. 

8. What was the last sweet treat you ate?
I literally just finished eating a cheesecake. Which was delicious, thank you very much.

9. What are your plans for tomorrow?
Due to my lack of job and money and...life. I have no plans for tomorrow. Probably just gunna eat some food, watch some Jeremey Kyle and shoot some zombies on xbox.

10. Pull one random fact out of the air about yourself.
Ahh, argh, ahhhhh so much pressure!! Okay...random fact...erm...I currently have a stye in my left eye and it hurts like hell. I feel like I've been punched in the face, multiple times.

I'm going to be honest and tell you that I'm probably not going to tag anyone in this. Feel free to tag yourself - and sorry if I'm ruining this tag for anyone! I will actually leave some questions for you to do, should you feel the need to...

1. What's your first memory of? 
2. What is your favourite song?
3. Who is your favourite Disney character?
4. What kind of movies do you enjoy watching?
5. If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
6. What is your favourite colour? 
7. What is your pet peeve? 
8. What sort of books do you like to read? 
9. Why do you wear makeup? 
10. Do you have a favourite quote/song lyric? What is it?

Wheyhey Sugar-Free, Protein Ice Cream*


Something a little bit different, but super delicious on Poptarts Beauty today. On Friday I received four tubs of ice cream from Wheyhey to test out, and it is without a doubt one of my favourite blogger mails of all time. Who doesn't love ice cream? Especially when it's good for you! 

Wheyhey is the world's first and best selling protein ice cream. The company was founded by best friends Damien Kennedy and Greg Duggan back in 2012. Having met at  University they quickly discovered a common interest in good nutrition, great food and even better bench pressing techniques. After respective stins as a GB basketball coach and fitness model, the duo dreamt up the idea of a great tasting ice cream that does you good.

Wheyhey ice cream has 20g of protein per pot. Protein is super important for your body, Wheyhey state that it is the building block for all human cells, the second most abundant component of the human body after water, and can help with everything from losing weight to muscle repair and skin anti aging! It also contains absolutely no sugar, whatsoever. All of their products are completely suitable for diabetics because they use a natural sweetener called Xylitol. 

At first, I must admit I was a little sceptical. I am a massive, massive sugar fan so the idea of eating something that is meant to be sugary but isn't was a little scary. To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised after the first taste. Wheyhey ice cream tastes just like ice cream should, if not better. It was so creamy and yummy, that I found myself trying to share the ice cream with everyone in my family just to see what their thoughts were. The four tubs of ice cream where devoured within 24 hours of arriving at my front door and everybody commented on how tasty and creamy it was. My favourite flavour was definitely chocolate, it had such a rich taste that literally melted in my mouth. 

Aside from being delicious, Wheyhey ice cream comes with loads of benefits. We all know that protein is good for our bodies and general health, and winding down from a work out could be so much more fun and beneficial to your health with tasty protein ice cream - not getting enough protein into your diet can lengthen recovery time after a work out, can cause muscle weakness and suppress your immune system. Not only this, but Wheyhey ice cream can be used to help you lose weight. Upping your protein intake can make you feel fuller for longer and help you cut snack cravings. The protein consumed in Wheyhey's ice cream will slow the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, which helps with maintaining a stable blood sugar level, essential to weight management. Being healthy definitely does not need to be boring. 

I'm really impressed with this ice cream, and would definitely have this over my usual sugary ice cream any day. It makes a fantastic snack, especially on these warm summer days that we've been having recently. 

You can get Wheyhey's products at most health stores, including Holland & Barrett, you can also purchase their ice cream at Odeon cinemas! Be sure to check out their website as well.
