A Work In Progress- Connor Franta: Review

tumblr_nqg9twr7Wp1tcf0aho1_500 (1) So. Damn. I-n-s-p-i-r-i-n-g. When you read this book- because you will – you literally will feel like you could fly to the moon in a Tesco’s carrier bag…or something. I bought the book because it was on offer in Tesco- hence the convenient Tesco reference above. I admit: it was cheap. So I bought it- relatable? No? Oh, just me then. But the point is…ITS FREAKING AMAZING! Let me expand on that…

For the deep thinkers, big dreamers, and innovative creators of the world who inspire me.

This basically is a picture-perfect, well…word-perfect summary of the WHOLE book:

  • Deep thinkers

This 212 page object will seriously make you re-evaluate your WHOLE life. There are chapters on “The Levels Of Friendship”, anxiety, his struggles to identify and accept himself and his sexuality, suppressing your inner creativity, accepting your flaws, happiness, faith…and coffee. There is literally a chapter called “COFFEE”. Completely cramped my tone. Thanks Fanta. (<Yes, that was deliberate. I know my style…*snaps fingers in Z formation*). Connor Franta- A Work In Process

  • Big dreamers

The book begins with a charming 9 page chapter called ‘In Retrospect– which, after an e-x-t-e-n-s-i-v-e Google search for the definition of the word ‘retrospect’, I concluded was a kind of ‘start to finish’ overview of his life- in retrospect. Convenient. The chapter begins with his six-year-old self, describing how his dad’s video camera looks something of “a toaster with a telescope attached”. Fascinating. Being the six-year-old spring bud that he was, Connor decided to use the telescopic toaster as a substitute person, to which he found himself “talking about nothing for an extended period of time under the presumption that I am funny”. No change there then *wink*. The whole chapter originates from this point, from the humorous-telescopic-toaster-talker to his ultimate dream- talking into a slightly less telescopic, less toaster-like object, still presuming he is funny (also, *wink*).

  • Innovative creators“-

*Googles exact and precise definition of ‘innovative’* He in himself is an ‘innovative creator’ for writing the damn book. No-one in the world has ever started work, made progress with whatever it is he or she is doing, and called it what is it- a work in progress. New, original, and somehow creative. Yes, I got those words from the Google definition. emptylighthouse.com_


Thank you for reading, looking at the pictures, or whatever it was you came here for…I appreciate it! In case my somewhat O.T.T sarcasm clouded my true opinion of the book…I DAMN LOVE IT. It is a truly uplifting read; I cannot recommend this enough.

Ask yourself these questions:

I have a Facebook account; which may surprise you considering I write like a 55 year old lonely man. But every once in a while I come across some inspirational sh*t which really mucks up my already mentally unstable mind. But like I say, it’s inspirational sh*t.

So, (not) being a lonely 55 year old man, I thought I would create some inspirational sh*t…well. Google and I. We are very fond of one another…um. I felt a little more lonely when researching questions, which involved the typing of “questions to ask y…”, which I would have followed up with “yourself”, had the suggestions not been:

No suggestion for questions to “yourself”? Okay. *Creeps back to hole in ground*.

So without more-damn-a-do, lets ask questions, to yourself, to make you seriously re-contemplate your potentially already contemplated life. Yeah.

Cat-Wallpaper-Tumblr-1366x768

> Question to ask yourself number one (in your face Google- this is history, apparently)-

If this were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today? 

(the preferable answer being yes, if no, then GET A SHIFT WITH YOUR LIFE WOMEN/MAN!)

> Question two:

What matters most in my life?

(Apart from Nutella, and Joey Graceffa. Oh and Cameron Dallas. And Tyler Oakley, and Troye Sivan and the WHOLE youtube community. #TeamInternet).

> Question three:

Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

(Apart from reading this blog. Obviously. Obviously.)

>Question four:

What have I given up on?

(A friend? A goal? Reading this blog? < OI)

> Questionio five:

If I had to instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby’s mind, what advice would I give?

(*Slush warning*)

>Question se…six:

If I try to fail, and succeed, which have I done?

(Failed, obviously. Right?)

>Question seven:

What do I need to change about myself?

(Don’t say your phone, or your clothes, or your eyebrows, think DEEPER.)

>Question eight:

How many of my friends would I trust with my life?

(“With my life” being like…hanging of a cliff over a shark infested ocean, or something.)

>Question nine:

What do I want most in life?

(For me- utter happiness. *Face palm at self*)

>Question ten:

Which is worse: failing or never trying?

(Come on…DUH)


Thank you for reading this wee snippet of a blog I threw together for my millions of (non existent) viewers…I appreciate your time! I hope you now have fully re-evaluated your life and will take any necessary action…or whatever.

MAX FACTOR CLUMP DEFY MASCARA: REVIEW

Okay, lets dive straight in… (to the blog, not some metaphorical ocean) The mascara is mascara; this means it does as Google says:

mascara
maˈskɑːrə/
noun
 a cosmetic for darkening and thickening the eyelashes.

It undeniably both darkens and thickens the lashes- well done Google. However the extent of its “clump defying” nature is questionable. After a couple days of use, I began to notice those delightful little black clumps so delicately scattered around my eye lashes. Cool. So I can conclude: it doest defy the clumps, meaning is it just ordinary old “Max Factor mascara“- imaginative.

As with all mascaras, the more coats you apply, the thicker and longer your lashes will be (duh). But the added bonus with this mascara is inevitably with more coats come more precious little black blobs. So I recommend not multiple coating.

Now, with the seemingly ‘waterproof‘ editions- there is a ever so slight con. The packaging features the recognisable strip of blue colouring- signifying waterproof, however if you take a wee peek at the small print beneath “clump defy“, you will see it actually says “water resistant“. Bummer. I learnt the hard way- lets just say I understand that the lifeguard was not staring because he was fascinated by my natural beauty (yeah, fat chance), it was the streams of jet black stains coating the entire perimeter of my checks attracting his attention…

Although it is excruciating to admit, there are some pros. The handily ‘eye’ shape of the brush head makes for an easy application (as well as providing a handy reminder that is it your eye lashes you are to paint, not your eyebrow or wherever else you were about to smear the stuff- smart.) It looks a little (exactly) like this:

Other pros run along the lines of its long lasting formula (providing you widely avoid any form of moisture), its colour (black, its black), its flat bottom, and its manufacture origin- Ireland. You may say “What’s the difference, Ireland, China, product’s still the same?“- well technically yes, but no. Firstly, China is located 10,771.2 km away from Ireland. Secondly, the chance it could have been made by a leprechaun is so overbearingly exciting I would import everything from Ireland if I was a wee bit richer.

….And the end result: *cue dramatic drum roll*
