February is such a gloomy month.
It’s so short, yet feels so long, and nothing ever really happens. Sure, Valentine’s Day is a thing and we love a good box of chocolates, but the weather can never decide what it wants to do. It’s snowing one second, then sunny the next, and, overall, it’s always freezing! This is why have to all live vicariously through travel vloggers, who are in much nicer (and warmer) places than us…
On with the Round-Up!
OH Dave.. what’s occurring? | Chi With A C
You may remember Lucia Keskin from when she recreated an entire Friends episode, playing ever character herself. (It was quite an iconic video.) Well, she’s back at it again, this time recreating scenes from the iconic BBC show, Gavin & Stacey.
In the show, there’s a range of different and difficult accents, but somehow Lucia manages to nail every single one of them. She truly captures every character and the end result is pretty hilarious. We can’t wait to see what show she takes on next!
Why Pre-Ordering Books Matter | Ariel Bissett
There’s a good chance in your time online that an author has asked you to pre-order their new book, but what’s the point? Why shouldn’t we just wait until we see it in shops? Ariel Bissett explains the importance behind pre-ordering and what it means to publishers.
If you want to support your favourite author or even a debut author, then pre-ordering their book is essential. It gives publishers an idea on how the book is going to do and gives them stats. Pre-ordering can give a book that push to make onto the best sellers list.
Stay Young – Official Music Video | Maisie Peters
Maisie Peters has released the music video for her bop of a song, Stay Young! To film it, she travelled all the way to the LA (we know, quite the trip!) and the result is absolutely beautiful. Can you believe it’s her first ever music video?!
This very green video is the perfect companion to this catchy, danceable track. We think this video, cat included, is completely perfect for her first music video. In fact, it’s so perfect that it’s made us even more excited for her upcoming UK tour, which, might we add, has sold out half its dates!
BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND, I’M BORED PRANK on my EXES! Lyric Prank! | Anastasia Kingsnorth
A new challenge has appeared online, inspired by the reigning queen of pop music, Ariana Grande. She recently released a new song called break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored and, in the challenge, you send lyrics from the song to those in your life. As you can imagine, it goes horribly every time.
When Anastasia Kingsnorth did this challenge, it was filled with cringe and self-embarrassment. The most awkward moment has to be when she texted her ex the lyrics and found out he deleted her number… Yikes.
Insane Beaches & the Northernmost Tip of NZ | Sandra Potisek
Sandra Potisek takes us with her on her road trip across the gorgeous sights of New Zealand. We’re not going to lie, we’re pretty jealous. Not only because the country is currently experiencing some gorgeous weather, unlike us, but because of how beautiful everything looks!
In this video, she embarks on a journey to find the spot where the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meet, while also searching for the perfect beach. Does she succeed? Watch the video to find out!
Want more? Well, since you asked so nicely…
Leena Normington is stopping shopping in 2019 and cutting up all her loyalty cards. Earlier this year, she shared with us that she would stop shopping during the first half of the year, and she’s currently resisting the urge to go shopping and is saying “no” to non-necessities.
After years of writing, Lucy Powrie has revealed the cover of her debut novel, The Paper & Hearts Society! This YA book is all about friendship and is set for release in June 2019. Be sure to pre-order it now!
Rowan Ellis sits down with Jazza John in this video to discuss their favourite LGBTQ+ films. The video also serves as an announcement for the podcast they’ll be hosting together, where they talk about queer cinema!
The lads over at XO have brought us yet another lie detector test that has the real possibility of ruining friendships and bringing out secrets. It also informed us of what Cam Kirkham thinks of everyone’s girlfriends.
