Shuffle Song Tag.

Hey there! so while scrolling twitter the other day i saw that the lovely Nicole from northern Irish girl online had done the shuffle song tag. I had a read and i loved it! basically you put your spotify playlist on shuffle and then put them up regardless! i tweeted Nicole how much i liked it and she tagged me, so here it is! Now mine turned into a bit of a game, because i started doing mine but all i was getting was songs from Hamilton, which while i love that soundtrack it isnt all i listen too. So i skipped one or two but my friend said i was cheating so i sent him my playlist so he could do it for me! we did have to work through some Hamilton, but it was a lot of fun turning it into a game.

Im honestly a little sad that some songs didnt come up, for example i love the soundtrack from the greatest showman, six, but i also love five finger death punch and stars in stereo that didnt pop up! i have a wide taste, though as you will see its mainly musicals and rock/alternative music.

1. Here without you – Jay smith

Ohhh jay smith, one of my friends who is swedish got me into jay smith, he originally won the Swedish version of Pop idol in 2010  and he did a cover of this song on there too. Hes got a really gritty, soulful voice, he also is rather hot that helps a fair amount!

2. Aaron burr sir – Hamilton

I am (as you will see) a rather big fan of musical soundtracks, and this was actually the soundtrack that started it. Hamilton is a musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of america. This is an amazing soundtrack, very different to your classic musical soundtracks.

3. My dead gay son – Heathers

I had a right old laugh when this popped up! This is also a musical soundtrack, from the musical Heathers, Heathers is based on a movie from 1989 of the same name, you join veronica sawyer starting her senior year of high school, her high school is your classic, the nerds, the goths, the jocks and the popular girls – the Heathers. You can hear that this song is outdated, but it is very progressive too because it is about excepting people for who they are.

4. The me inside of me – Heathers

Another Heathers song! this song without spoiling is from the main popular girl, Heather chandlers point of view, well sort of. Its hard to explain without completely spoiling but it is brilliant, if you like dark humour with a number of messages i highly suggest Heathers!

5. Stars – Sixx: A.M.

You will see a theme, but a friend got me into this band and im so glad she did! they have a lot of songs about self esteem and excepting who you are, some of there songs are truly beautiful. Stars is described by the band as a classic Sixx:A.M song and it really is, its a beautiful classic song in my eyes at least talking about just being alone with someone and taking it in.


6.  Who taught you how to hate – Disturbed

I really love Disturbed, again my friends got me into them! and im glad they did, they were the first band i listened to that was a bit rockier and i adore it. Who taught you how to hate, was written after disturbed came back from a hiatus, David Draiman  the main singer (who is amazing) and his wife had just had a son. And this song was inspired by how children are not born with hatred, they are pure and non-judgemental and they learn hatred. Its a very important topic they hit so well here.

7. Fall in line – Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato

Yes! Oh so happy this came up, Fall in line came out earlier this year and its so good. Its talking about the way women have been made to do things, to “fall in line” for so long, and how it shouldnt be that way anymore.

Little girls, listen closely
Cause no one told me
But you deserve to know
That in this world, you are not beholden
You do not owe them
Your body and your soul

Says it all right?

8. Mz Hyde – Halestorm

I do love a bit of Halestorm! Halestorm is a brilliant band, and its a rock band with a female lead with you dont see too often! there songs can be pretty racy, but honestly i find that kind of empowering? Mz Hyde is about being a completely different person in bed than during the day basically!

9. I get off – Halestorm

Oh look, another Halestorm song! and its racy again, good grief. This song, being blunt is about getting off on being watched. (those moments when your glad your family doesn’t read your blog).

10. Immortal – Disturbed

And finishing with another disturbed song, nice! Immortalised is basically a very empowering song, they say its meant to make you feel powerful and able to take on anything, and it does its very empowering and you feel like you could take on the world.

And there we have it, i hope you enjoyed! it really does show my tastes pretty well, empowering rocky songs and musicals! Im not gonna tag anyone out right, but please if you want to do feel free to do so!

Current favourites.

Hey there! so i havent done monthly favourites before, and i think its a little outdated these days! however, i felt like showing you what im enjoying lately, and i think ill do these posts randomly just when i have things to show you! i have 3 skincare, 2 makeup, a wax melt, and some music too! so lets get started.

First up we have a wax melt! i mentioned wax melts a few weeks ago, and in that haul i picked up the rainbow splash bramble wax £5. I have had the shot pot of rainbow splash and i love the smell, so i grabbed the bramble snap and im so glad i did! its so nice just being able to grab a chunk and pop it in the burner, and its bramble wax so of course it smells amazing, its meant to smell like fruit chews and honestly id say its fruitier than that!

Right onto the makeup! First off the E.l.f HD setting powder £7.50, now i bought this a while ago but have only started wearing makeup regularly again over the past few weeks, and this set powder is lovely! i used to use it years ago back when elf was in the uk the first time around. its very fine, easy to buff away and keeps everything matte! big thumbs up from me.

Oh mascara, we all want the perfect one dont we? i wouldnt say this is my perfect one, but the soap & glory thick & fast mascara £10.50 is really doing it for me right now! it makes my lashes look full and long, matching the dark purple eye i like doing perfectly, it doesnt flake or smudge and is easy to remove!, it doesnt hold a curl sadly, but ill take everything else for that!

First up in my favourite skincare right now, is the no7 nourishing cleansing balm £13.00. i picked this up in a haul a few weeks ago and god i love this cleansing balm! its so good, i reviewed it fully here but if your looking for a good basic in the best way cleansing balm check this out!

I bought this speed plump miracle moisture mouse £14.00, now i know i used this a while ago but it had been a while! trying it again, i really like it. Its a very interesting texture, like a oily mouse, its hydrating and feels lovely on the skin.

Finally for skincare, we have the Revolution skin mild skin exfoliator 5% lactic acid & hyaluronic acid £6.00, this month i tried a tonne of the revolution skincare products, and i love all of them but the lactic acid has really stood out for me as a really gentle exfoliating option.

Ive been really back into musical soundtracks at the minute, this video from west end live introduced me too the musical six, i fell in love with it very quickly! its a really quirky fun soundtrack that can be found on spotify.

Along the same vein, i have been a watcher of carrie fletcher for a while, and shes currently in the west end production of heathers,i hadnt heard of heathers until she got the part but now oh wow its so good! again, the full soundtrack (not sung by carrie sadly) is on spotify.

So thats what im enjoying at the moment, id love to hear what your loving right now!
