“In a magical world where balloons are filled with the light of film, only popping them releases the beautiful movies within. Will Ben and his father get a chance to pop their balloon before it loses its light forever?”
I love this, so creative, important and touching. One of my favourite songs, too. Watch in HD.
I must share this although many of you probably have seen it already. Zara Larsson is just so good! PS, I accidentally wrote Zara Larsen at first. Ha! It actually sounds like Ellen is saying Larsen as well…
This reinforces my belief that I am secretly British, it is totally my cup of tea! In fact, I had to get Earl Grey the other day to do a London Fog (a tea/latte drink as seen on the picture below). It is easy-peasy to make and not too unhealthy, all you need to do is: brew the tea, add a little vanilla syrup (I went with Alpro Soya Vanilla instead) and finish with some steamed milk. If desired, you can also sprinkle some cinnamon on the top! I have not figured out the ultimate measurements for my taste yet, so I suggest you Google a recipe if you want to try it. The beverage is sweet but not too sweet, and I like it (not least because of the beautiful name). Anyway, I hope you have a good laugh with hilarious Mr (Handsome) Hussey. Cheers!
This girl, where do I even start? In my opinion, she is truly superior in her industry. So talented. She has an incredible voice, she is really good at dancing and she possesses a fantastic attitude, charisma and self-esteem; feels comfortable in her skin and very mature despite her young age. Not only that, she is awfully good-looking! She has beautiful features, a great body and nice hair. Not to mention the fancy makeups and extremely stylish clothes! I could kill for this whole outfit, the sequin jumpsuit with the matching heels and the fabulous (faux?) fur jacket. Smashing!
I would not mind the jacket Zara is wearing at the beginning of this performance either, it is just so right! Zara Larsson really inspires on so many levels, but the thing that I like about her the most is her gumption. I love individuals with ambitions; people who work hard to achieve their goals. Besides, this young woman is humorous, smart and witty. If only I were half as brilliant as her… So cool!
This is perfection. Watch in HD.
I’ve been longing for the Christmas season for quite some time now, and it’s finally here! I love to get in the mood with Christmas songs, films and not least – adverts (I’m sure you can tell by now)! Here’s a cute one from Heathrow Airport that I recently found. British adverts are beyond compare. The majority of the Christmas adverts I’ve seen and shared with you, I would be delighted to see as full-length feature films. There are several brilliant narratives with great messages, not to mention the various remarkable characters!
Christmas with love from Mrs Claus makes me realise what truly makes me happy – my siblings. Their happiness. I wish I could give them everything they ever wanted, but most importantly, I wish I could be with them and share the joy. I really appreciate all the time I get to spend with them (which, unfortunately, is not too often). It doesn’t matter if we just talk over the phone or if we only meet a few minutes to say hello; each and every moment is precious.
Christmas – the most wonderful time of the year – unless you’re a Hamleys employee and have to wrap teddy bears and other toys that are ‘mission impossible’ ha-ha! Today it is three years ago I started working as a Christmas employee at Hamleys (The Finest Toy Shop in the World) in Malmö. Undoubtedly a festive season and a very merry time of my life!
Breaking news, Sainsbury’s Christmas advert this year is, in my opinion, way better than John Lewis’s. Sainsbury’s The Greatest Gift is very captivating and contemporary. I can easily relate to: “I don’t have time, there’s only one of me”. Watch it!
It’s worth peeking at John Lewis’s Christmas advert too, it’s just that I expected something more sentimental in line with previous years. Buster The Boxer is, regardless, very sweet!
Last but not least, another wonderful Christmas/winter story worth sharing! The excellent moral of the tale: “Make time for what you love”.
My love for good Christmas adverts is endless. This one is heartbreaking but with an extremely important message. Since I will have to spend Christmas alone this year it gets particularly emotional for me. I must work as much as possible the coming months, which means that I need to stay in southern Sweden during the holidays, and I only have my family here… I cannot remember the last time I was welcome to join any of them for Christmas (nor anything else really). I miss my parents and siblings so much. All I want for Christmas – is you.
