Character vs Reputation

Thursday, 20 November 2014

So I stumbled across this picture on tumblr the other day, and I've been thinking about it a lot, and I think it makes an excellent point. "Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation" So so so many of us care so much about our reputation, and how we come across to others, yet we don't consider that we should worry more about what we're actually like. Especially in things like school and social activities, all we ever used to bother with was our reputation. Whether we were considered 'popular' or 'a nerd' and other things like that, I know I was like it and I know most of you probably were too. I think it's only human nature to care about things like that, but when you really think about it do you realize just how petty it all is.

As you grow older you kind of grow out of caring so much about how you're seen by the world, and how good or bad your reputation is, I don't think it goes away for everyone, but I do think you care a lot less about it, however I do think it is more important that you do actually take more notice in how you actually are. Your character is you, if you come across as having a bad reputation, instead of trying to change that reputation, why don't we have a look at ourselves and see if that's the problem? See if it's that we maybe have a bad character, hence why our reputation isn't that great, and focus more on changing our character or sorting it out than the latter?

Just some random thoughts, do you agree or disagree? I'd love to hear your opinions in the comments below, or for you to tweet me what you think!


The Makeup Bag.

Friday, 14 November 2014

Most of you will probably know of the lovely beauty named Zoella, and she recently released her own range called 'Zoella Beauty', and I think I'm a tiny bit obsessed with this makeup bag oh my.

The only point in this post is to show you the makeup bag, which is my current one and probably will be for quite a while, it's just gorgeous. The size is perfect, it's not too big and not too small, it's a washable material, the colours are super pretty and the design on it is just, wow.

Love, Rosie Film Review

Monday, 10 November 2014

The other day my Mum decided to take me and my friend Jess to the cinema to go see the film 'Love, Rosie'. I saw the film trailer a while back, and although I couldn't remember much about it, I remembered that it looked good. I can honestly say that this film is now one of my favourite films ever. The main appeal this film had, is that the two main characters are played by 2 of my favourite actors, Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, and can I just say that their acting in this film was on point. I really felt the chemistry between them, and my god did I feel a LOT in this film. 

There was not a moment when I wasn't either crying with laughter or crying with how emotional I was, it was absolutely full of moments which caused either one or the other. It definitely does fit the whole romantic comedy theme, I find a lot of romcoms lean more on the romantic side than the comedy side, however this film created the perfect balance between the two, which is one of the reasons I've added it to my favourites.

I'd definitely recommend you see this, however do take some tissues with you, you will need them. I'm not sure if it's still on cinema anymore, but you should definitely add it to your list to see when you can, you won't regret it at all. Overall it was a great film and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even my Nan, who isn't the biggest fan of romcoms absolutely loved it, and to me that's saying something.
