Well aren't I just the worst blogger, not posting anything all week! I've felt guilty all week, but I just haven't had the motivation to write, and this is ultimately a hobby and something I'm doing for fun, so forcing it isn't something I want to do. However I do really enjoy it and want to keep on going, so Im trying to be more organised. Although, organisation has never been my strong point. Anyway, less explaining, more blogging. This week I started back at work, and I am now working weekday evenings at Primark. I did this job last summer so I don't find it difficult, and I already know a lot of the people, which is great. However working in the evenings means missing lots of the blogger chats which I really enjoy.
So as my week has been filled primarily with picking up clothes from the floor and folding hundreds of T shirts, I've decided rather than I catch up I'll show you some internety things I've enjoyed this week.
- Im sure a lot of you will have seen this by now, especially if you're a lover of youtube, but JacksGap's 'A Film for Ella' made me feel all emotional and happy, whilst also wanting to moan at my boyfriend for not doing something as romantic as flying across the world to see me, even though we're only a few hours apart and I see him almost weekly.
- This week the 50 Shades of Grey Trailer was released and It's all I seem to have heard about, people either love it or hate it, and I am on the side of hating it. I read the first book, and not only was it a pretty poorly written, obvious rewrite of twilight fan fiction, it was also just horribly abusive and so many shades of wrong. It would need a whole post dedicated to the reasons I don't like it. However one good thing to come from the release of the trailer was I found this blog by Jenny Trout. She has read and commented on each individual chapter of 50 Shades, and her commentary is great, she's funny and smart and as a writer herself she highlights all the mistakes made by E L James. I've only gone through a few chapters, but it's a pretty great find so far.
- Lousie from SprinkleofGlitter is one of my favourite youtubers, and I recently saw her instagram post from a premier she attended, and immediately fell in love with the dress she was wearing. The dress is from ASOS and can be found here, I just wish I had a reason to buy it!
- A blog I've been loving recently and has made it firmly into my favourites list is Broomfie by Rachael. She blogs about lots of things, and although she had a blog before she's created a new one ready to blog about her adventures of moving to Vancouver. I'm especially loving her posts on books as Im on a bit of a reading craze.
So that's a few internet related things I've been enjoying this week. If theres any random things you've been enjoying this week, videos, blogs or articles, send them my way as I always need something new to distract me from my growing to do list!
