RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE SEASON 9 CAST REVIEW


Hey guys I'm back with another Drag Race themed post but I'm literally bursting with excitement over the meet the queens video I just had to write this post. I feel like this season has a good mix of queens with a range of styles of drag so I'm excited to see what this season brings.

So to start things off, I'm team Aja all the way. I've been following Aja for a couple of years and her lip sync skills are incredible. If she s ever in the bottom the other queen should definitely be scared. Her look was also probably the strongest and most polished out of all the other queens and I'm not saying that because I'm biased. I was also really impressed with Nina Bo'Nina Brown (that name is amazing) and her looks are very original and impressive. I also have been following Peppermint for a while and I think that it's so cool that she is technically the first openly trans woman to be on the show (except maybe Monica) and I really hope that she is given the chance to discuss it if she wants to. I also love Shea and I knows shes pretty talented so I'm excited to see what she brings. I also quite like Charlie Hides I mean she doesn't even look 52 out of drag. I think shes going to be really funny and I have a feeling she might dominate snatch game. Her looks I think will be very different from the younger queens so I'm excited to see her on the show. The fishiest queen of the season is obviously Farrah Moan. She's one of my best friends favourite queens so she was very excited and I was to an extent. I'm worried that she will rest on pretty, which isn't necessarily bad I mean look at Courtney Act. I just think that this bunch of queens she can't just rely on pretty to get her through to the next week. Farrah prove me wrong. I can also tell that the bitch of the season is gonna be Kimora which is probably going to be very entertaining. I also think her looks are going to be very strong on the runway (but not Aja strong). I have to say the two queens that least impressed me were Trinity Taylor and Eureka (sorry) just because their videos weren't very memorable to me. Sometimes I feel like pageant queens can be very similar and I can also tell who the pageant queens are (not always though) so I was a little bit worried when Trinity said that was her style because that was the only think I remembered from her video. Eureka just didn't stand out to be and I think that could potentially be her downfall because there are some big personalities (I'm looking at Kimora) and you can't risk fading into the background.

So just from looking at the meet the queens I think you can tell who the strongest queens are, Just going off the video i think the top three will be Aja, Nina Bo'Nina and either Shea or Peppermint. However, there's always time for the queens to prove me wrong.

Do you watch Drag Race? If so who's video stood out to you?

TOP FIVE DRAG RACE QUEENS



Hey guys! So if you don't know me very well this post might seem a bit weird but let me  just share a quick fact about me. I love drag queens. Rupauls drag race is my favourite show and I just love the art of drag (which does sound a bit weird). So I thought to celebrate the 9th season I'd do a few posts about my favourite drag queens and my favourite episodes from the show because the anticipation is literally killing me. So I thought I'd share my favourite queens from past seasons even though the task was quite difficult. Before I start, a few special mentions to Adore, Sharon, Latrice and Raja who were close to being on this list. 

5. Raven. The true winner of season 2. I think Raven has been very influential after drag race with her great makeup and fashion sense. Honestly the girl always looks flawless, seriously I dare you to try and find a bad photo of Raven. I also feel like there were two more challenges she should have won but we don't want to start that one again. I'm just a huge fan of her polished looks and I'm obsessed with fashion photo ruview. 

4. Trixie Mattel. Trixie is one of those queens that defiantly improved after her season. I actually like her on her season and was so excited when she was brought back. I think she was holding back with her makeup and comedy and was super excited when UNHhhh came out (if you haven't seen it get on the world of wonder YouTube channel now) because she just cracks me up. Also her style and makeup is very original and I love it. 

3. Jinkx Monsoon.  I have always been a jinkx monsoon fan and she deserved to win. I went to see her in late November for her Christmas show with Major Scales and it was the funniest show I've been to. Even if you weren't a fan you would have been after the show because it was incredible. If you get a chance to see Jinkx you honestly won't regret it. 

2. Katya. I'm not even going to try to spell her full name. Can we just talk about how amazing Katya was on All Stars. Her read you wrote you verse had me shook. I think Katya is one of the funniest queens to come on drag race and her mum is just adorable. I also like katyas weird style and accessories and she deserved to win all stars. #rigged. (Joking don't hurt me I still love Alaska). 

1. Bianca Del Rio. I feel this needs no explanation. Her looks are always flawless and she always cracks me up. I'm so excited to see her next month, it's gonna be amazing. 

Do you watch Rupaul's drag race and if so do you agree with my list? Let me know who your favourite RPDR queen is in the comments.

2017 LET'S GET SICKENING!!!

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't been that present but Christmas was quite busy. With seeing family and work and revision for mocks (that went badly) and watching Netflix I haven't found the time. Anyway, to put it bluntly, 2016 has been an absolute shitshow not just for me, but for the entire world. I want to make 2017 better for me so I thought I'd share my five goals with you with th hope it makes me more likely to stick with them. 

1. Revise more. I've brought myself a calendar so I can plan my resign because I've got my A2 exams  coming up and I really want to do as well as I can. I have thre exams in one day (yes, six hours of exams on a Friday) and I'm not going to as well I can because I'm going to be exhausted so I need to do really well on my retakes and other units so I need to work my tiny little butt off to do that.

2. Be more social. So I case you couldn't tell, I don't get out muck but that's something that's going to change this year. I really want to make the effort to visit my friends at uni (,a inky for the great drag shows in London) and just go out with my fiends at college more. 

3. Make my own descions. So I try to make people happy instead of making my own descions which I wouldn't reccomend. So when I'm making imports descions, like if I want to go to uni or not, that is going to my choice and not my mum or my teacher because I'm the only one who knows what I want and I'm going to stand by that.

4. Be more careful with my spending. So I spent a lot of money over the Christmas period on stuff that I didn't need. when my bank statement arrived I nearly had heart failure at how thick it was. When I'm buying something (espically online) I'm going to think so I really need that before I buy it because if I go to uni I'm going to need all the money I can get. 

5. Eat healthier. So I eat a lot of crap and I've had "food issues" on and off for the past two years and 2017 is the year I'm going to get rid of it forever. So I've decided that eating healthier will help me fell better and stop all the issues I've had in the past. 

What are your New Years resolutions? Let me know in the comments.

I'M NOT SURE ABOUT UNI

Hey guys. So has you know about a year ago I had a major breakthrough and was finally happy with my A-Level choices and had chosen my ideal university course. I've sent off my uni application for Environmental Science and I've gotten offers from all five of my choices and I'm starting to have doubts. I've been thinking recently that maybe uni isn't for me. I'm really struggling at home and college at the moment and I think I want to leave my home so desperately that that's what attracting me to leave and go to uni rather than the course and the actual university life. I've gone the most difficult way to do my A-Levels to get the best grades for uni and I don't know what's come over me but at the moment I'm feeling like I really don't want to go. I don't know if it's just me being nervous or having a bit of an issue with my confidence but at the moment I really don't want to go. The issue I'm having is that I've spoken to my mum and my friends and they all respond in one of two way. Either no you don't you're being silly. Or well what are you going to do make sandwiches for the rest of your life. People are just so helpful when it comes to sorting out my car crash of a life. I honestly don't know what I would do. I could get an apprenticeship in something like veterinary nursing or lab technician. I mean let's be honest, no 19 year old has their life 100% sorted and that's won't change if I go to uni. I'm really struggling with environmental at college at the moment and it doesn't help that my friends made it a competition and is putting me down every time I don't get the greatest mark and to be honest it has affected my confidence within all of my subjects. I'm not saying one person is responsible for my change of heart but I think I'm sick of education and being compared with other students and being graded on how intelligent people think I am. I honestly don't think I can take three or four more years of that. I'm really excited to move out and finally get my independence and the only way I think I can do this is do go to uni but I don't feel it's worth the huge amount of debt and stress. 

Are you at uni at the moment? Please let me know in the comments if you felt this way and if so go you overcame it.

JEFREE STAR SKIN FROST. Worth The Hype?



Hey guys. So if you know me well then you know I spend most of my hard earned sandwhich making money on Jefrees brand because lipstick goals, am I right? So when beautybay stocked the skin frosts I knew I had to get one. They didn't sell Ice Cold so I settled for Peach Godess which is such a beautiful pinky peach colour that I think would look good on most skin tones. At a pretty pricey (for me anyway) £25.50 I hoped and prayed to all the gods that is was worth all the hype. 

I know everyone says this, but the first thing I noticed was it was very pigmented and when I say a little goes a long way trust me it really does. Ifeel like this product is going to last a long time which to me makes the price a bit more reasonable. One of my makeup hates is u blended highlighter and it makes me so happy that this highlighter is a little but creamy making it so much easier to blend out so there's no harsh line of shimmer across my cheekbones. I also think there's such a good range of colours for different skin tones. Anyone else love seeing people being super creative with these highlighters on Instagram? Anyway, I'm a huge fan of this highlighter and wear it pretty much everyday and I literally get all of my friends complimenting me on how great my highlight is which makes it worth the price. My highlight is always on point. 

So if you didn't understand that (I'm not sure I did either lol) I think it is worth the hype. It's very highly pigmented, easy to apply and blend out as well. I mean I expected nothing less from Jefree because he doesn't put anything out he doesn't love so I was very hopeful. I'm not sure I'm brave enough to wear black and blue highlighters but I've seen people rocking it unfortunate I'm gonna stick to more safe and neutral colours. Also I have my eye on the new shade Princess Cut, anyone else think that shade is beautiful? 

Have you tried this highlighter or have a good dupe? I think some said the Sleek purple highlighter is a good dupe for Lavender Snow. Don't know if that's true or not but its worth a try. Also have you seen the Holiday collection swatch video because I'm in love with crocodile tears and designer blood.

TOP FIVE ALBUMS

Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed my last blogpost ... It was definalty a new one for me. So I wa thinking about some of my favourite blogposts I've done and I actually really enjoyed writing top five posts which I know sounds quite stupid because they're really simple. I was thinking how much my taste in music has changed and I've reached a point where I've accepted its weird and that I don't need to like chart music (Except for Taylor because she will always be my queen). I never know what to write in these intros so I'm just going to share my top five albums at this point in time and I hope I don't get judged. (Also please remember I'm 19 not 40).

5) Tango in the Night - FleetwoodMac. I'm actually a bit of a FleetwoodMac fan (thanks dad) and this is definalty my favourite album of theirs as it has my favourite track Seven Wonders. If you haven't heard it drop everything and listen to it it's such a great song and while you're at it get the album honestly you won't regret it. 

4) Like a Prayer - Madonna. I mean it's Madonna I feel like that should be the only explanation. Although I I do feel a bit basic saying this is my favourite album but Cherish is my song. I mean we'll just pretend she didn't call herself a minority and go back to her being the 80's pop diva we all love. 

3) Strangers in the Night - Frank Sinatra. I love jazz and blues music and I couldn't not put this album on the list. This album is amazing with sings like Downtown and Summer Wind make this album my favourite. 

2) Gypsies Tramps and Thieves - Cher. I love Cher because I think she's one of those great iconic divas that still have insane talent and who's music and careers will live on. Literally everyone makes fun of me and one time my friends told me she died as a joke and I nearly cried. I mean Cher is amazing and why it's funny beats me. Anyway this album is actually my favourite (closely followed by Heart of Stone) because I think it just sound so different to her other albums and has my favourite song Fire and Rain. My mum did say it sounded like it belongs in at a funeral but I think that just says more about me. 

1) 1989 - Taylor Swift. Before all my fellow swifties jump at me I've been around since the speak now era and I love all her albums I just didn't want this post to be called "reasons why I love Taylor Swift" but I chose this album because it has a song for literally all of my moods and I think they all tell stories. I know it sound stupid but it's such an amazing album and even better after seeing the tour. 

So these re my top five albums. Let me know in the comments what your top five albums are and we can share music reccomendations. 

Also my friend G (her full name is Georgia if you're fancy) has just started a blog giving you the overview everything political. if you enjoyed my last post you should seriously check her out at https://gonpolitics.wordpress.com/. Trust me it's a good read and she's one to watch.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE U.S. ELECTION


Ok before we start two things. One, I know I haven't posted in forever but I have been really busy. Two, yes I know this isn't my normal post but I feel that politics is so,etching we should all talk about and get involve sin. We are lucky to have a democracy and there are people that would kill for the chance to vote and we should not take it for granted. I never thought I would see the day I wanted a Clinton to be the leader of the most powerful nation in the world but that happened. How did a man who has cared nothing but himself not even to mention the racial, homophobic and sexist slurs become the president of America. It has made me question the state of the American voters because to me it stemmed the obvious choice. Obviously I am aware that if his idea is stupid (like building a giant wall) then congress will step in but how did this happen. It's like us voting Nigel Farage as PM. 

Despite all the racism, homophobia etc. the main thing that makes my blood boil more than anything is that he doesn't believe in climate change. I know it doesn't sound as important as him bragging about sexually assaulting women (which is a really serious issue by the way and I'm not trying to undermine that at all) but how can you as a leader of a nation deny this scientifically proven fact and say you're going to restart the American coal insdustry. To me that is utter stupidity and makes me fear not just for America but for the rest of the world. My main passion is the environment and for a man to say it's fine and nothing's going to happen to me is ludicrous. My main fear is that he backs out of signing the Paris agreement because without Americas signature we will not stop climate change with this agreement. Plain and simple. 

So when I was watching is winning speech (hell must of frozen over) he said something along the lines of he was going no to make change for all Americans. Trump has never done anything for anyone else he just does things for himself. He's a businessman who is part of the 1%. I hate to breK it to you but he will only be interested in making money and I don't think he will care about the Americans struggling financially. If he does do something to help those people I will eat my words but at this point in time he has shown me nothing to indicate he will. 

I accept there is nothing we can do now ... America you have made your bed and now you have to lie in it. I accept the fact he is a businessman and I'm hoping this will give the chance to make good deals for his country. Let's just hope the sexism, homophobia and racism isn't as much of an issue as we hoped. As well as causing the least amount of damage to the environment as possible. The main good thing is the UK isn't the laughing stock of the world anymore... That crown goes to you America.

What's your thoughts on this election. Even though I'm not Ameican I think it's still important because our relationship with America is very important. I just hope Trump proved everything I just said wring for the sake of his country. 

(please don't hate me for this post it's just my opinion)
