This is the excerpt from J.K Rowling's interview for BBC years ago. Although the actual video can be found on youtube but, I love reading it rather than watching. I don't know maybe it's because I like reading way more and the video's editing was not so on fleek (Haha) considering all the stuff people do now. She talks about how she put in little details of her life into her books and everything she had to overcome to get where she was in 2002(and is now). I mean, yeah I'm sure all of us already know her story too well but reading this really gives me hope when I'm feeling down. She's a source of pure inspiration to me!
#2 French Cake Decorating from Tumblr
There's something so satisfying about watching cake icing videos and this one is 1:48 minutes of pure pleasure. Everything in it looks so so delicious and it's can be an absolute enemy on days when you're hungry or trying to eat healthy but I always love watching it. The first time I saw it I actually replayed a few too many times.
#3 Instagram : Doughmestichousewife
Carrying on the theme of icing and sugary goodness, here's an instagram account I've recently followed and become obsessed with. She basically does cookie decoration and icing and they are some of the prettiest pieces of art I've ever seen. I love her videos particularly showing how she ices them and again the satisfaction of watching those is something I cannot describe. So go have a look at her page. I binge watch her video bits a lot.
#4 18 Photos that will make any 90s stationary geek's heart soar
I'm a huge stationary geek and I actually distinctly remember every cool piece of stationary I used to own as a child and I am still secretly ( not so much anymore) collecting bits and pieces whenever I can (as you can notice in my stationary haul). I spotted this little nostalgia list on Comedy Central's Snapchat and it was so cool to see all these amazing things I owned and treasured as a kid. My favourite item would have to be these "every colour" pens. I loved buying a ton of them and keeping them safe in my pencil case because they used to be stolen like.. all the time!
#5 Youtube : It's Alright by Charity Vance
She is a singer songwriter on youtube and one of my biggest inspirations. She used to always remind me of Taylor Swift(the old one) because of the style of her songs and her voice. I have been a huge fan of her songs and this particular one is such a happy song. The video is of her with her girlfriends having a girly day together. It honestly makes me smile and reminds me of high school. It's sweet, girly pop and it'll be one of my favourite songs forever although she also has some other incredible songs as well. You may have heard a couple on other beauty youtuber's videos.
(I was absolutely heartbroken when I went to look for the link for the video.Charity has deleted all her youtube vidoes, twitter, instagram etc and she hasn't said anything to her fans yet. She had stopped uploading songs for a couple of months now but she was still active on social media. Thankfully, I was able to find a link to the original video which was re-uploaded by another user but I seriously hope she's fine and she will make music again.)
#6 The Graham Norton Show Compilations
I love the Graham Norton show and I do follow all seasons quite regularly but my favourite episodes are the season compilations where they put the funniest and cutest moments from every episode into a montage including the best "red chair" story. I love these episodes because they are a constant laugh riot and instantly lifts my mood up, I like having a marathon of the compilations too sometimes because they are usually so well edited and I also get to see something from any episodes that I've missed. I do tend to forget to watch it on TV so I usually catch up online or on youtube(where they also share specific moments).
I am thinking of making this a series on the blog if it's something that will interest people :) I have tons of stuff to share!
