Can you believe we are halfway through May?
Where has 2019 gone? Some of us are in exam season, some of us are thinking about university, others are excited about the upcoming music festival season. Whatever is going on in your life, one thing is clear: time is flying by and that means it’s almost summer! After all, the weather has been very nice and it’s starting to feel like the best season of the year.
We’ve been through another week, which means it’s time for another Weekly Round-Up!
THE POWER OF BEING AN INTROVERT | Samantha Maria
Are you more introverted or extroverted? For those of you who said introverted, you’ve probably felt the same way Samantha Maria has, like the world is designed for extroverts.
This week, she talks about the power of being introverted and her struggles being the “quiet” one for Olay’s #FaceAnything campaign. We think that the campaign itself is pretty neat and includes some really great stories, but we especially love Sammi and what she has to say in this GRWM video, and we hope those who may be feeling down about being introverted feel empowered.
Applying to University – things they don’t tell you | leena norms
It’s about that time, innit? Time to consider university and all the questions that come with it. While a lot of the TenEighty staff are already in or graduated uni, we always get a bit stressed out about this time of year because we’ve been there.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to uni and you may think you’ve considered everything. Well, we hate to inform you that you’re wrong. Luckily, Leena Normington is here this week to help you with those questions that, looking back, we wish we had considered.
Wrong Side of the Sea | LibbyLumos
It wouldn’t be a true Weekly Round-Up is we didn’t include a music-centered video, right? In this house, we stan Libby Tidley and her immense talent.
However, we have a confession to make. This song is so beautiful and calming that we may or may not have had it on repeat while writing this Round-Up, and we may or may not have accidentally fallen asleep while writing it… Oops. That isn’t meant in a negative way, but in a “wow, this song is amazing and relaxing to listen to” way. Either way, you’re going to fall in love with this song, video and Libby.
Men’s Fashion: 10 Items You ACTUALLY Need! | Robin James
When we post style videos, they’re usually hauls by female YouTubers. Because of that, we tend to leave the men out and we don’t mean to. That’s why this week we thought we would focus on the men’s fashion with this fantastic video from Robin James.
Whether or not you’re looking to revamp your closet, this video is a good starting point for all. This week, Robin goes over his top 10 essential items that everyone should have readily available in their closet.
The ULTIMATE 20 MINUTE COOKING BATTLE | SORTEDfood
From Master Chef to The Great British Bake Off, who doesn’t love a cooking competition? We know we do and that is exactly what the guys over at SORTEDfood delivered this week.
Honestly, just watching this video had our anxiety through the roof. There’s no way we would have been able to stay calm in the kitchen with that much pressure, but the boys did well and made us hungry in the process.
The Met Gala, one of the most talked about events and biggest night in fashion happened this week, so, of course, the internet is talking about it. We just didn’t know that Will Lenney and Alex Elmslie would have so many opinions about fashion.
