Six blogs I love at the moment (and who you should follow too!):
I know it hasn’t been too long since the last currently list (just over two weeks to be exact!) but I felt the need to do another one, as I have currently been doing, and loving so much stuff! All whilst working a lot… Which is the reason I’ve been so quiet on my blog lately.
Watching: I’ve been watching Jackass again lately. Every time I re-watch it I am once again reminded how much I love that damn show, but at the same time I forgot just how much I miss Ryan Dunn. As well as Jackass me and my boyfriend recently downloaded the Crunchy Roll app, and we are in love with it! It’s an app like Netflix that allows you to watch anime, as well as Japanese drama, and regular readers will know how much I love all things Japan (apart from octopus balls… Ew) so this app was a definite must have for us. Thanks to the app I was able to finally watch Himouto! Umaru-chan, something I have wanted to watch for AGES! It’s an anime about a high school girl who outside of her house and in school appears to be perfect, in every way. However as soon as she goes home, she turns into a lazy, gaming nerd. That is legit me… Apart from the perfect in every way… That isn’t me. 😛 BUT it is such an amazing anime and I am already a huge fan. I recommend anime fans to check it out ASAP. I’ve linked a video above with the introduction to the show. I don’t want to link anything that will ruin the show for anyone.
Playing: There’s one game I’ve been playing loads this month and that’s Lego: The Hobbit game. I had neglected it for a while until recently when I decided it was time to finish it… I’m not even halfway through it… DOH! I loved The Hobbit films, and although a lot of people disliked them, they were my favourite out of the Lord of The Rings series… Please don’t hate me LoTR’s fans! Alongside that me and my boyfriend finished Life is Strange, after the last episode came out last week. I’ve loved that game so much, and I really want to play it from start to finish soon. The story was amazing, and the way it ended was incredibly sad and not at all predictable like most games, movies, books, etc are these days. I recommend Life is Strange if you like gaming, especially games like Heavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls where you need to choose how the story ends.
Listening: I honestly haven’t listened to much different from I usually do… I usually listen to Bloodhound Gang of late, but alas this hasn’t been the case the past couple of weeks. On my drive to work and back I’ve had my iPod on shuffle, but this being said a certain band has stuck out lately, and I’ve listened to them quite a bit not just in my car, but also in my boyfriends car. I grew up listened to Limp Bizkit’s album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water (gosh, what a mouthful!) so whenever I listen to it now it takes me back to when I first started to discover nu metal/rap metal and how much I loved it. To name a few of my favourite songs from the album would have to be, “My Way” (which is my favourite Limp Bizkit song tbh…), “Livin’ It Up”, and “Getcha Groove On” (which I have linked above in a YouTube video as it’s my favourite song from the album).
Eating: I’ve been eating so much Japanese food lately, it’s crazy. With the new Grand Central opening in Birmingham, and also a new Yo! Sushi opening up in there too, me and my boyfriend thought we would treat ourselves to Japanese food there. Only to do the same again the weekend after, but at a Japanese restaurant in Coventry called Chi Bar. My friend also wanted to visit the new Yo! Sushi, so I went again, and like before we also went to the Chi Bar that same weekend too! It sounds really bad eating so much Japanese food, diet wise, but oh my it was so worth it! I’m such a fan for the sumo bowls at Yo! Sushi, as well as any flavour gyoza. Yummy!
Wearing: I’ve still been wearing my Dr Martens boots loads, but sadly they have been giving my feet a bit of trouble so they’ve been retired for a few weeks to allow my feet a much-needed break. Instead I have been rocking my Star Wars Vans again, a pair of shoes that I have been loving all of 2015 so far, and I know this will continue. They’re so perfect and easy to wear, with any outfit really. I really want to pick up another pair, just incase my current ones fall apart or anything worse! I do however have some new Vans, which I will be showing off on Friday!

Wanting: Honestly there isn’t all that much I am lusting after at the moment… Which comes as a shock to me to be perfectly honest. 😛 If there is one thing I really want right now, it is one of the Christmas shades from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, this one of course being Hoe Hoe Hoe. It is a beautiful dark red shade, with pink shimmer running throughout. I haven’t seen anyone else do this with a liquid lipstick, and not to mention it is very beautiful! I’ll be ordering one as soon as they are put live on Cocktail Cosmetics website!
What things are you currently into? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below. I apologise that I have been so quiet lately, I am now working full-time at work again so I am trying my best to try and juggle work and my blog. It’ll all be okay! ^_^
Until next time all, take care and I hope all my readers are having a lovely week so far.
I love a good tag and one to do with music is always a must! I’ve been so busy doing university work the past two weeks, that instead of finishing off one of my assignments, I’m doing this tag instead!
This was created by Lily Melrose and Zoe LDN, who I both love! So I knew I had to give this a go myself.
I have my iPod at the ready, as well as the tag questions, so let’s go!
1. Song that you listen to when you’re happy?
Living iPod – Savant.
I recently discovered this song, thanks to my boyfriend and quite frankly I love it. It’s chiptune, which I associate with being happy and such anyway. The song is said to have featured on quite a few videos on YouTube, which wouldn’t surprise me. I’ve recently downloaded Savant’s Vario album, which this song is from and I highly recommend it if you like chiptune, electronica, or even drum and bass, as I think you’ll love this.
2. Song that you listen to when you’re sad?
I Know It Hurts – Alter Bridge.
I’ve been listening to this song for years and whenever I feel really down this is usually a song I’ll stick on, as the lyrics are really good for that pick up needed when you feel that sad. Plus it’s Alter Bridge, they’re amazing! I can’t even chose a favourite lyric or two from this song (trust me, I just tried to!) as all the lyrics just serve a really strong message. If you ever feel down seriously check this song out.
3. What song will you have at your wedding?
Horse Outside – The Rubberbandits.
I won’t lie, I never think of things like this. All I think about for my possible future wedding is what food will be served and how I’ll have a DJ playing good music, instead of the rubbish that most weddings have. However after looking through my iPod for a possible song, I found one. Me and my boyfriend LOVE The Rubberbandits and this is the first song my boyfriend heard, thanks to me of course. This being said, this is also the first song I heard by The Rubberbandits. This is just such a fun song and due to the lyrics sung in the song I think this would be very apt if we were to get married.
4. What song do you dance around your house to?
PonPonPon – Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
This song is amazing. I’m surprised I didn’t pick it for the song that makes me happy! Whenever I put this on I just want to dance around my room, and more often than not I do. I sing loudly in Japanese (badly may I add!) and just enjoy myself. I remember finding out what the song meant in English and it was pretty cool and funny. The music video for this song is really weird though. But even so, an amazing song and I would like to check out more music by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
5. Song you play in your earphones when out and about?
Animals – Maroon 5.
I have quite a few but I settled on this one because I’ve found myself listening to V a lot since it came out. I really do like this song and it’s good to listen to whilst driving and when I travel to university as well. This is my favourite track on the album and as much as people hate it and have moaned about it, I love the music video too.
6. Song you listen to when you’re angry?
Break Stuff – Limp Bizkit.
An old classic and one I have always listened to when I’m pissed off. I doubt it’ll ever be replaced, I love my old skool Limp Bizkit too. This is also a song I considered for number 8. as quite frankly I used to lose my mind when this came on and I was out clubbing. I once started a mini mosh pit in a club because of this song too… Luckily it didn’t last that long!
7. Song you’d have at your funeral?
Yellow – Coldplay.
I don’t know why I would have this song, but it’s a really nice song and it isn’t really morbid. I wouldn’t want anything morbid at my funeral, I would want songs people could sing along to and think “Oh Nat loved this song!” You know? I’ve loved this song for years and it cheers me up to listen to. But personally I wouldn’t know which song to have at my funeral, as I doubt very much I would be able to pick one.
8. Song that makes you lose your shit at a party?
The Bad Touch – Bloodhound Gang.
I LOVE this song, love, love, love this song. I have done for years and I think I always will. Whenever this used to come on whilst I was out clubbing I literally screamed the lyrics until my voice had gone. As well as that I mimed whatever the lyrics were, complete saddo eh? I never sat down whilst this song was on, even if it meant dancing on my own. Listening to it now whilst I write this is making me want to have a little dance.
9. The last song you listened to?
IDGAF – Watsky.
This is a recently discovered song after checking out Watsky’s YouTube channel, even though it’s an old song. My boyfriend got me into Watsky when we first got together and since then I have enjoyed listening to his music. He’s a rapper but he’s just different, but he’s a really fast rapper too which is pretty awesome. I really like this song, it’s catchy and the lyrics are funny as well.
10. Your karaoke song?
White N Nerdy – “Weird Al” Yankovic.
This songs makes me laugh so much and it’s an odd choice of song to have for karaoke, but hear me out. Without the words I can’t sing this song, but with them I CAN! And karaoke’s have the words there on screen for you right? So this would have to be the song to sing. I’m such a show off that I can rap it, but whatever, it took me ages to perfect! Now if you excuse me… Must go and sing it. 😛
11. Song you work out to?
Call On Me – Eric Prydz.
Shit song, I know but I actually quite like it. Besides, when I used to work out, it was usually to this song so. It does get the blood pumping and body moving so I can’t complain. Must clarify that I don’t dress up like the women do in the music video. FYI as stupid as the women may look in the video, the work out they’re doing is hard! You feel the burn!
12. Song with the most memories attached?
Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt – We Are Scientists.
Soon as I saw this question I KNEW which song I had to pick! These guys played at Godiva Festival in Coventry this year, which me and my friend Poppy went to. We legged it over to the stage as soon as this song came on and we were both singing it loudly as we ran over, and sang and danced loads whilst we were by the stage too! Whenever I listen to the song it just takes me back to that day now and it was probably the best part of that festival to be honest.
13. Song that makes you cry?
She’s The One – Robbie Williams.
This was a really hard one to pick, as whilst I do cry at a lot of songs, it’s usually set off by being upset in the first place. I chose this song because this was the song my Mom and I chose to be played at my Gran’s funeral. I can’t really listen to it now without welling up a little bit and it never did that until we decided to have it for the funeral. The lyrics aren’t about losing someone to death, but they are about losing someone you cared about.
14. Song you hate the most?
Let It Go – Disney’s Frozen.
I refuse to actually put a song on here I hate, so I’ll put one that I love to hate and that has to be Let It Go as I can’t stop bloody singing it, but I love it regardless! I’m always singing it as soon as the terms let, it, or go are spoken of. I wonder when the Frozen songs will die… Soon… Soon…
15. Your favourite song of all time? Du Hast – Rammstein & Sailor Man by The Real McKenzies.
I wouldn’t say that these two songs are my favourite of all time, but I know if I’m really in the mood for two good songs, I’ll listen to these two. These are actually in a playlist next to each other on my iPod and whilst it was accidental when they were first put onto it, they’re now in their order on purpose. You see these two songs work perfectly beside one another. If you play Du Hast first and then Sailor Man afterwards, they just work so well. I feel like a mini DJ when I play them both and that alone makes me happy! Both songs I first heard thanks to Bam Margera, so it makes me laugh that they both blend well together.
So that was the soundtrack to my life! I have to say that was really fun to do, although I wish there had been more questions, as I had so many more songs I would have loved to mention.
Will you be taking part in this tag? I hope so because I’m going to pass the tag on and ask people to join in with it. If you do decide to give it a go, drop a comment down below saying you’ve done it so I can go and read.
Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re all ready for Christmas tomorrow.
