Favourites of the Week #5

Tuesday 5 March 2013

Hi guys!! Seriously quick favourites of the week this week, which you may actually enjoy - I don't have time to ramble quite as much as usual (spoiler: I still succeed in rambling!). I leave in just over a day!! WHAT?!!! How has this happened. Time since Christmas has completely and utterly flown in - which means I'll be there and back from Australia in what will probably feel like a blink of an eye!

Track of the Week
Heart Attack by Demi Lovato

I do love Miss Lovato. I included her in my list of fantasy celeb women dinner party guests (find out why here!) a YEAR ago - seriously, whoever is fastforwarding time these days, slow down! I like her personality and think she has a great attitude after everything she's been through, and this track is as catchy as ever.

Album of the Week
Taylor Swift - Red

Back to Taylor Swift's Red, this is a really, really good album. For anyone who hates ''We Are Never Getting Back Together'' (and I know there are a lot of you), I hear you - but this song is no reflection on the overall album. This week I've been favouring 'The Lucky One', and directing a music video for it in my head ;)

TV Show of the Week
Gossip Girl

I swore I'd resist, but I caved and bought the season 5 boxset - I've seen most of it, and was disappointed with the way seasons 5 and 6 panned out, but when I saw it for £11 on Amazon I decided I owed it to the show (film and tv student alert!) to give it a proper go (and complete my boxset collection!). And the first few episodes of this season are actually pretty good - love the Dan and Blair banter, sorry Chuck and Blair fans!

Film of the Week
Something Borrowed

If you haven't seen this film, based on the novel by Emily Giffin, you should give it a go. It's an unpredictable chickflick about friendship, love, marriage and the pointlessness of keeping secrets. Ginnifer Goodwin is brilliant in it, as is Kate Hudson - she is incredibly annoying, which is exactly what the part called for! I saw this in the cinema with my bestie, and enjoyed it so much I got the dvd when it came out, but I hadn't seen it for a while so watched it this week.

Beauty Product of the Week
Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

The perfect peachy lip colour and I love the formula of these - this is most certainly coming to Oz with me :)

Book of the Week
Switched by Amanda Hocking

I'm reading Switched by Amanda Hocking - this is a YA book about a seventeen year old girl named Wendy whose mother tried to kill her at the age of six, convinced she wasn't her child... I won't say any more because this book is so fast paced you find out everything pretty quickly, so don't want to spoil it for you! Let's just say if you enjoy fantasy/vampire/werewolf/witch etc fiction this will probably be your cup of tea! I'm about a third of the way through it and SO much has happened already!

YouTuber of the Week
Sprinkle of Glitter

Anyone who has read my blog for a while will know how much I adore Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter. Her videos never fail to cheer me up and this week I'm lucky enough to have a wee ad on her amazing blog - so go and check her out here if you haven't already. She's a little ray of sunshine in this online community!

Website of the Week

So much love for Pinterest again this week - so many amazing finds!

Style Icon of the Week
Mila Kunis

I won't go on for too long here - who doesn't love/have a huge girl crush on Mila Kunis?! She's gorgeous. Loved her look at one of the premieres of the new Oz film - this wasn't London but I'm not sure which one it was, will update this later! - a girly, pretty dress with a casual updo and gorgeous makeup, and then she hits the Graham Norton show following the London premiere in a pair of leggings and a white shirt, hair down and makeup simple and looks equally as amazing. Kunis, I salute you.

Eeeeek, my last favourites from Scottish soil for a little while - this is all getting a bit real guys! Thanks so much for reading, hope you've all had an amazing week :)
