The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt.1

So I went to see Mockingjay Pt1 on Tuesday/Wednesday, I first saw THG and Catching Fire and at midnight Mockingjay. All I can say is that I loved the movie! I wish I could write a long review but I don’t know where to start and also I should have thought of this earlier and I’d written things down sooner.

 

One of my favourite things in the movie is the part where Katniss sings The Hanging Tree. That was just beautiful. The song has been stuck in my head many times after seeing the movie I just discovered this song in HQ quality on YT and that’s the reason I just had to write a little bit about the movie.

Unpopular opinion time. I didn’t miss Peeta that much I’m just not that much of a Peeta fan. Besides Katniss my favourites are: Effie, Haymitch, Gale and Finnick.

Anyways it has been a very long time since I’ve read the book so I don’t even know if there are any major things different. I know I enjoyed the movie and I did recognise some of the things happening.

Did you watch Mockingjay pt1 already? If so what did you love/hate?

Absolute Nude Catrice Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette is the most used item in my eyeshadow stash! I absolutely love it. It has all the nudes for a perfect simple daytime look. But also darker colours for evenings and parties!

IMG_2360I’ve use my palette so much now that certain colours are slowly starting to run out. So it’s a good thing I already bought a new one. This also gave me the opportunity to show you guys this palette as well.

This palette contains 6 nude shades: 3 light shades and 3 darker shades. All the shades have somewhat of a glitter/shimmer to them. Some more than the other, however there’s not 1 matt colour in there. But I don’t mind, I like my eyeshadows a little shimmery. ( I just noticed they do have a matt palette now. Need to check that out Because the colours looked nice on the picture.)

10 All Nude
IN THE MOOD FOR NUDE
Six nude shades in one palette: subtle sand, delicate beige and brown in various facets. Some matt, some with a shimmer. The soft eye shadow texture with high pigmentation and colour dispersion creates natural-looking eye make-up, yet is also ideal for smokey eye styles in the evening. With a practical double-ended applicator *

These are the 3 lighter colour. I always use those for the base for my eyeshadow. The darkest colour I mostly use for a light smokey eye. Or just to cover my lid a bit and use that as the only colour of eyeshadow for the day.

These 3 darker ones are the colours I use to fill in my crease and to create a smokey eye.  Or at least my version of a smokey eye.

There’s also a brush in the package with a sponge on 1 side of the brush and a fluffy bit on the other side.

I bought this palette for € 4,99. But check your local drugstore for the right prize. You can check http://www.catrice.eu/ for a store in your neighbourhood. Or keep an eye out in your local drugstore.

So today is the day that the Sherlock: Chronicles is coming out! And if it wasn’t for Waterstones in Amsterdam I would’ve had to wait for at least 3 more days before I could finally hold this baby.

2 days ago Waterstones Amsterdam tweeted about the book and I wondered if they already had it in stock. So I asked, because that’s what people do. Also I’m not traveling to Amsterdam to go home empty handed. Yesterday I got a reply and they already had it in stock! So in the afternoon I went to Amsterdam. Buying the book in Waterstones might have cost me a bit more, but I don’t really care.

Anyways so far I’ve only read like 34 pages and I really love it. I looked a little through the book and of what I can see this is the perfect look behind the scenes. Which is something I LOVE. I love reading books that go with TVshows or movies especially things I am really passionate about, like Sherlock.

I Love the wallpaper on the inside of the book.
 

I really think that if you love Sherlock and love reading about the production I really recommend picking this beauty up! It’s availble online at Amazon but Waterstones or other bookshops will do fine too!

The picture on the left is the inside of Magnussen’s mind palace and I swear there is some freaky shit in there.

Making Dreams Come True.

Yesterday my attention was brought to this video of a Dutch 13 year old girl who died in a car accident a few weeks ago. Her biggest dream was to become famous as an actress. Her dad didn’t have any clips of her acting but he came across this video of his daughter, Anna van Keulen, playing the Downton Abbey tune on the piano.

Her dad decided to share this video on Twitter and he thereby asked people to watch and share this video to make his daughters wish come true. And it did come true. They published the video on the 28th of October and as of this moment (30th of october) it has had 1,429,956 views on youtube, it has been played on the Dutch radio, and the clip has been on several Dutch TV programmes.

My daughter Anna wanted to become famous. Suddenly she died.. Help her to become famous by watching this!

I just really wanted to share this video with you guys because a) She deserves it b) her piano playing sounds beautiful c) I know I don’t have that many followers but I really want to try to make her famous all over the world and not just in the Netherlands. Because this young girl died way to young in a tragic car accident on her way to school 2 weeks ago.

So if you’re reading this: Please share this with all your friends and family and together we can make Anna’s dream come true.
