Sunburn – The String Quartet Tribute to Muse
I was walking home from the bus the other night in the pitch black darkness that living in the pseudo-countryside produces and this song came on. I felt like I was in a film and I had a soundtrack, the music is so dramatic and really makes me think (is that weird?). I love classical music and I especially love these tributes by The String Quartet (there are quite a few here the System Of A Down one is fab too!). If you’re a Muse fan I’d definitely recommend checking this album out.
TV, Book or Film | American Reunion via Blinkbox
I’ve been watching more and more films online lately, I had a subscription to Love Film and Netflix at one point but cancelled them both as I’m not a frequent film watcher. When the folks at Blinkbox offered me the chance to try their service I thought I’d give it a whirl. I used it to watch the latest American Pie film yesterday afternoon and the process was so simple, basically you just register, pick a film, pay and you’re good to go. You don’t even need to subscribe, win, there are loads of films and there seem to be new ones every time I visit.You can watch movies online at Blinkbox too, there are quite a few free films so you don't even need to pay to try it including 'Slap her she's French' - anyone else remember that? I watched it the other day and loved the cheesiness.
I really loved American Reunion, I was having a duvet day and really didn’t fancy leaving my bed or getting changed so I thought I’d perk myself up with a bit of old school teen comedy. I’m so immature at times, this film had me in hysterics on more than one occasion. I was pleased to see the original cast again after those weird spin-offs with random characters we didn’t know.Product | Estee Lauder Double Wear
I don’t know what my skin has been playing at lately, my face is covered in spots at the mo. I don’t normally wear a full-coverage foundation in the day but this week I’ve had to whip out the big guns, I’ve used Double Wear every day and I’ve had to do more than one layer! It’s the most full-coverage foundation I own so it was perfect for covering my many blemishes (I counted 17 at one point!)and it lasts all day long. I was very disappointed to hear that they’ve decided to discontinue my shade.Event | Passing my QTS Professional Skills Tests
The reason I’ve not been blogging as much lately is my application for Teacher training, if you’ve been around for a while you’ll remember that I applied last year but sadly couldn’t take the course due to financial reasons. This year I thought I’d give it another go and hopefully I’ll be able to get funding. This week I passed the numeracy and literacy tests that you need to take in order to get onto a course. I have been so worried about them as they’re ridiculously hard if you don’t do maths much, I took them both on Wednesday and passed. I was so pleased! Hopefully I’ll get an interview now!Shop | Amazon
My love affair with Amazon has been rekindled this week – I ordered about 10 Christmas presents from them for much cheaper than I’d be able to get them elsewhere. I also love the free shipping.Blog or YouTube | The Schuerman Show
I was super excited to see The Schuerman Show back on YouTube this week! It used to be one of my favourite things to watch back in the day, part of my Daily Vlog schedule (alongside the Shaytards and Le Floof TV). If you’re not aware of The Schuerman Show it’s the daily vlogs of Sam and Jay and their two children Phoenix and Lily, Sam has a blog and a YouTube channel too. They stopped the daily vlogs about a year ago I think due to some bullying and Sam’s second pregnancy and I was so sad to see them go, I was so happy when I saw a video in my subscription box again!
