amazing soundtracks

Published April 12, 2012 by laurrx

i’m a huge fan of movies, and when i’m rummaging through my collection of DVDs looking for one to watch i’ll start singing a song from it, or say to myself “what a freaking amazing soundtrack!”. and whenever i’m shuffling through my ipod every second or third song is from a movie or a TV show.

here are my top 10 favourite soundtracks (not in order)

10 things i hate about you
this CD was the soundtrack to my Florida holiday 2006 or something. every song was so spot on for the moment, and every song is amazing! my favourite song was probably Letters to Cleo – Cruel To Be Kind, and it’s so cute ’cause Patrick gets them to sing it for Kat, for it all to be ruined. Best scene of the whole movie, i think! i love Semisonic – FNT when they’re paintballing, cos they kiss at the end of that scene and it fits in far too well!!
the soundtrack list is right here

project X
just seen this movie quite recently and every song that came on, my friend and me would whisper to each other “what a tune!!!” or “love this song”. it’s such an immense soundtrack, i downloaded it the day after i went to see it. my favourite is kid cudi – pursuit of happiness steve aoki remix. it’s the one that was played in the advert that was constantly played on E4 adverts that were promoting the movie, and i just wanted the song to keep playing!
here’s a link to the list here

tangled
forgot how good the songs were in this until i watched it just yesterday, i was prancing about the house singing along to all the songs. and i have a clear favourite and it’s when will my heart begin! i love Mandy Moore’s voice so much, and this song is really funny, when shes hanging around the house doing all this stuff and painting and then talking about the chinese lanterns!!! i love it, i love it, i love it!

enchanted
i also watched this yesterday and sang the songs word for word. when i got out of hospital five years ago, this had been delivered to the house (along with Pump it up the exercise DVD which gathers dust in my cupboard now…). i watched it loads and the songs are so funny. i love the way enchanted really takes the mickey out of all disney movies. favourite – that’s how you know, when they’re all dancing about the park. it’s absolutely hysterical. there’s really only like 3 or 4 songs that are actually sung, but the music is even good!!

mary  poppins
i know i’m such a Disney freak, but after this there’s no more! for a couple of weeks when i was a kid i spent a few weeks in hospital and every day i watched mary poppins, whenever i sit and watch it i’ll talk along with the characters like a proper 5 year old. supercaligragilisticexpialidocious is my ultimate favourite disney song never mind my favourite mary poppins song! also i love jolly holiday with mary and i love to laugh! amazing, and it really all takes me back to when i was younger!

wizard of oz
this movie is one of my total cheer up films, but i always fast forward to when it goes to colour – i hate non colour movies.  i love the scarecrow, tinman and lion’s song “if i only had a brain/heart/the nerve”. i absolutely adore the lion, and the way he says “noive”. and then also “over the rainbow”, what an amazing song!

(500) days of summer
as much as this movie irritated me ’cause they never get together (’cause summer was a bitch), the songs in it were really good. i loved the genre of the soundtrack, the songs were all so relaxing, and really nice. they went with the movie and what was really happening in the movie. i feel like the songs are so ironic, they’re all so cheery and happy sounding, that it isn’t really clear that they won’t be together forever.
get them here

a walk to remember
listening to this soundtrack never fails to bring  tear to my eye. they just remind me of one of the saddest movies i’ve ever watched. and like i said before i love mandy moore and i love that she sings in it, the song is amazing. my favourite song in this is mandy moore and jonathon foreman – someday we’ll know. its such a fab song, and it’s played when Landon is doing amazing things for Jamie and it’s such an amazing music scene!

spring fling – essentials for the season

Published March 28, 2012 by laurrx

the weather in scotland has been gorgeous this week. there was constant blue skies and the sun was out all day, in work i was sunning myself and actually got some colour. not bad for March, i thought!

but finally spring has sprung and the sun had shone, so i thought i’d share some of my favourite spring/summer products…

No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream Normal/Dry, Medium
so, i only got this like a week ago but i already LOVE it. i think i’ve used it a bit more than i normally would because of the weather.  this BB Cream is SPF 15 and has 5* UVA technology which protects the skin. it’s great for this season and the weather we’ve been having – of which i hope we get more of – with it being really light on the skin. i use this in the day time, and set it with my MAC powder. with this BB Cream i don’t use concealer, well really in this weather i don’t use concealer (only because i’ve yet to come across a good one that will stay!), i only don’t use concealer because the shade of this i have seems to cover up enough with just one layer.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Original
primer is a great invention in the warm weather, there’s NOTHING worse than extreme panda eyes and smudged eyeshadow when you’re getting your tan on. this is the best primer i’ve ever used and it’s UD’s #1  best selling product and i can fully see why. primer potion makes colours pop and it’d make the colour on your eyes look great in this season. i’m sure i read that pastel colours were in and there’s nothing i dislike more than pastel eyeshadow, but after trying it out using the primer it looks really cute and would look great on holiday or just in the park with your friends, or sitting in a beer garden finding your next spring fling…

NARS Blush – Orgasm
i am just in love with this pinky-peachy-corally coloured blush. this picture does NOT do the colour justice (give the NARS website a visit and check it out). it highlights the cheeks as well with the subtle accents of gold shimmer. it’s a great colour for the time of year, really natural and bright. a big plus for this being a blush and faint highlighter, is that it’s a 2-1 which means the less product packed on your face when it’s warm or humid outside

MAC Lipstick – Girl About Town
the things i love the most about MAC lipsticks are probably…
1. the smell
2. the pigmented colour
3. how moisturising they are.
the strong pigmentation really helps in the weather and maybe fun spring activities, where you’d forget to re-apply so it really stays and you don’t need to worry about it. the lipsticks are so moisturising which is great, especially for people like me who forget to use product to prevent the lips from being burnt. and after the lips are burned they need to be moisturised and this not only helps the burnt lips, looks amazing on…the smell is just a bonus.

Some fun flower hair clips from various shops
i love putting flowers in my hair, at the weekend me and my sisters were rocking about Aberdeen with daffodils stuck in our hair. it always looks so summery and pretty. i need to stack up on them for the summer – TITP and Zante – so i can shove them in my hair for something cute to add to the style.

hope you loved my spring fling blog, what’s your favourite product for the sun and the season?
