New Channel, Old Me...

Hi there lovely people,

I just wanted to let you all know about my NEW YouTube channel. As some of you might already know, I have a beauty and fashion channel called 'summerfey' (hence the name for this blog). For a while now, I have been feeling less and less motivated to make videos for a few different reasons (not being able to come up with content, nothing seems original to me anymore, super time consuming and not feeling like I am really giving it my all, etc...) I love YouTube, and I still LOVE making videos, but I feel like I need a change of scenery for awhile to let my brain breathe and to get my creative juices flowing again. With all of this said, I have started to upload videos onto my "vlog, or personal" channel entitled 'TheWryWombat' (I'll be doing a post on the name choice soon). If you are a subscriber from my other channel, I am unable to tell you if I will actually return to 'summerfey' at some point, or if I will just continue my YouTube journey with this new channel.

Now what kinds of things do we have to expect from 'TheWryWombat'? Well kind reader, you should be expecting, well.. me. So far I have been uploading somewhat of a hodge-podge of different types of videos on there. Some different video series that you should keep an eye out for on this channel would include:
-music videos that are accompanied with explanation videos/behind the scenes footage
-cooking/food tutorials
-vlogs (week-in-the-life's)
-just a little more about me :)

~*If there is something specific that you would like to see from me, please feel free to comment on this blog post, on one of my videos, on my channel page, leave a video response, or send a personal message my way. I would love to hear from you all and to get some feedback.*~
I would really appreciate it if you could subscribe if you have a YouTube account. I am just getting started again, but I have been really enjoying myself and making these types of videos. It is a great way to get to know me a little better, and I have to say, I have a great wealth of knowledge at my finger tips ;).


If you would like to subscribe to my new channel, click here to check it out: HERE

To all that are curious, I am keeping my old videos up on my first channel, and I am keeping this blog up as well. The name will stay the same (partly because I don't want to have to go through the process of changing it and the layout to match, but also because I like it), and I will still be posting here as much as possible (some may still be fashion/beauty posts, but also some random ones as well).

Thanks for sticking with my guys, and I hope that you have a fantastic day!

Hello, hello, hello...
As I am sure that you all already know, spring is *almost* upon us, and there are some AMAZING fashion trends that seem to be wiggling there way out of the wood work this season. Here is the (un)official list of the trends that I am pretty excited for:

1) high/low hemlines on clothing. -My mother really hates this look, but I think that it injects an extra bohemian-flower-girl-wild-child kind of vibe if you get my drift.

2) Neon/bright colours on clothing and accessories. If any of you are avid YouTube beauty guru watchers, then I am sure that you have spotted Ingrid's (Missglamerazzi) neon green purse that I have been drooling over. If you are not daring and bold enough to go for a bright shirt or pair of hot-poppin' shorts, then I would suggest sticking with an on-trend arm of stacked neon bracelets (covering two fantastic trends), or a pair of awesome kicks!

3) Colour blocking- Read above, I don't really feel like repeating myself :D
-bright, daring lips- This trend will look fantabulous on anyone; no matter what your body type, skin colour, gender, or age is. You got this, chick-ah!

4) Straight across bangs- They're baaaaaaaack......

5) Colours: yellow, green and blue- All are super gorgeous, and totally suitable for anyone.

Please let me know which fashion trends you will be taking advantage of this spring! As always, thank you all so much for reading xox

Read If You Dare..

Above image found here using Google Image search

In honor of the scariest (and the most revealing apparently..) holiday of the year, I thought that I would start off my Halloween posts with one that might be a little helpful for some of you if you are like myself and are still trying to figure out what to do on this festive night. I don't think that it is any surprise to you that I love movies, so I thought that I would give a few quick recommendations that you could watch with your hubby/wife, offspring, acquaintances or hell, by your self for argument sake. Without further adieu, I leave you with..

My Top Ten Halloween (or scary) Flicks of 2011

1) Halloween Town[1,2,3 (feel free to boo the last one, because I sure have..)]: Ok.. I know, I know; "but Madi, it's played on the FAMILY CHANNEL! I don't want to watching a KIDS movie!" If this (or something similar) was your inner dialog as you read number one, then you obviously have never seen this movie before (or you are just deranged, your call). Yes, it is technically for 'smaller children', and no, it technically is not scary, but none the less it is a great movie to watch while decorating your house, carving pumpkins, sending me candy... the usual.

2) Shutter Island: For the record, I went in thinking that I was going to completely HATE this movie souly because Di-crap-rio was the star, but was I wrong! There are very few movies out there that I have seen (and actually enjoyed) where it was so scary I had to cover my eyes because I could not bare to watch; this was one of them. I also loved the ending, a nice unexpected touch I'd say.

3) The Others: I think that this is the best movie that Nicole Kidman has ever done. Not only is the acting outstanding, but the storyline just gets under my skin. Creepy kids with a weird condition, normal (or so it seems) mum, dead father, oodles of housekeepers who can't seem to keep to themselves, a mute, mysterious moving furniture.. all happening in one dusty, dark mansion. Do not even get me started on the ending either. Nice.

4) Red Eye: This movie is more for those thrill seekers out there who like drama and suspense opposed to things jumping out or anything supernatural. It incorporates some very popular fears; traveling alone, someone making you do something that you don't want to do, planes, someone putting your family in danger, strangers (and sharp ball point pens). Plus one of the stars is Cillian Murphy (um.. HELLO).

5) The Ring: A classic horror flick. The supernatural, a PMSing ghost, a dirty old well, and televisions. Doesn't that sound good?

6) Sleepy Hallow: A young Johnny Depp and a headless horseman. Must I say more?

7) Constantine: Amazing story and SUPER CRAZY special effects (the scene with the man made out of bugs still sticks with me). It is absolutely phenomenal, and I have never seen anything remotely similar. This definitely is a must see!

8) Coraline: Yeah, Yeah, another 'kids' movie. Just trust me, ok?

9) Signs: AMAZING. I love the scene when he sticks a knife under the door and you can see the reflection of the alien on the other side. Super duper good!

10) Shaun Of The Dead: Just watch it, you wont regret it. "As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about."

I hope that you all enjoyed that. Please feel free to post any of your favourite movies (scary, or not) in a comment on this post and I will talk you all very shortly!

Why I have Abandond You (again).

Above Image From Here (found using google images)
Wow..ok, so I have clearly neglected this blog for way to long. How could you guys let this happen (as if it's all your fault)?! I could give you all a million and one reasons why my post have been minimal (or non-existent.. same difference), which is exactly what I plan to do...

(not quite) A Million And One Reasons Why I Have Been Absent:

-School: I have finally started my twelfth year in public education which has been eating up most of my time.
-This blog may have slightly slipped my mind (just a little bit).
-I am currently and have been since school started looking for a part-time job. Anyone hiring?
-Filming and trying to make my way up to partner-hood on the U to the Tube.
-I totally forgot I had a blog...
-My laptop broke and am now waiting patently (yeah, right) to hear back from them.
-I have finally figured out what I want to do with the rest of my life (fo' realz this time guys).
-Out of sight, out of mind. (note to self: MAKE THIS MY NEW HOMEPAGE).
-Halloween? (totally a legitimate reason..)

Anyway, you all WILL be hearing (or reading) from (about?) me (or my life [or lack of one]?) very soon. Also, please.. if I let this blog slip my mind again, someone write me a nasty letter telling me how much of a no-good teenager I am and how your life is not complete without my totally awesome blog posts. While we are at it, if you would like me to blog about something specific (a product I've tried, something for me to rant about.. whatever tickles your fancy) please let me know in a comment on THIS post. Thank-yeah so much lovelies!

Day Two: Your Favourite Movie

This is, yet again, something that I have a very hard time answering. Here are a few off of the top of my head:

-Harry Potter (obviously all of them)
-Anything by Pixar (Wall.e, Up, Despicable Me..)
-The Others (one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen)
-Van Helsing
-Spider Man
-Music and Lyrics
-Pirates Of The Caribbean
-Flight Plan
-The Little Mermaid
-Back To The Future
-Red Eye
-Practical Magic
-The Mummy

As you guys could probably guess, I could go on for days about amazing movies that I have seen, but these were just the few that stood out to me in our movie drawer under the television. Are any of these movies your favourites? If not, which ones are? Do you have any recommendations for me? Thanks a bunch for reading!
