My Blog Photography Process



Today I thought I would write a blog post on how I take, edit and upload my photos. I won't lie, photography is the aspect I enjoy most out of everything blogging entails. My favourite subject at school was photography and I'm just drawn to photos more than words on other people's blogs, in all honesty. That doesn't mean your writing shouldn't strive to be as best as it can be, but photographing things is fun and personally allows me to get the most creative.

Taking the photos

I'm sure you've all heard it before: a white background and natural light is good for blog photos. I never take photos when the sun is setting, if it's way too sunny and casting shadows on objects (however sometimes shadows are just inevitable - what a bloody nuisance), so the ideal light would be middle of the day and slightly overcast. Now you've got the time and situation sorted, you'll need to be thinking about how you want to arrange the objects you're photographing (or whatever you're doing).

The backgrounds of my photos typically consist of the prettier side of my room, my bedding or my old art board (which has a white-enough cardboard back to make semi decent photos). I would recommend you buy a big piece of white paper, cardboard or something else (or patterned, for example, marble) if you feel like making your photos look that extra bit nicer. Of course, you do you. None of these tips apply if you don't want to do what I'm saying.

As a general rule for taking photos, I like to think of having white space in the frame (less really is more), having similar colours in the shot and making sure things are focused and the ISO is good. I'm really not good at all the fancy ISO stuff, but generally I just try to adjust the ISO by trial and error, making sure the frame looks bright. If I want to include myself in the photo or hold something out in front of the camera (without actually taking the photo myself, ya know), I will prop my camera on somewhere like the windowsill or a pile of books (I know, professional) and set it to self timer where I will proceed to look ridiculous trying out different shots. Here's an example of me trying to focus my camera with my hand where I will then set it to manual focus so the focus range won't move.

My actual camera is a DSLR Canon 1100 with the kit lens. It's not amazing, but it does the job and carried me through three years of high school photography and the amount of time I've been blogging. I think the editing is much more important to ensuring your photos look good. Speaking of...

Selecting the photos

I use Adobe Bridge CS6 to look over all the photos I've taken and pick the ones I like best/will fit best into the post. I will go to 'Review Mode' in the 'View' tab and 5 star the photos I will then edit (shift + 5 to do this). Here is an example of the different shots I tried/my selection process - cutting it down to about three possible choices. The photos on the far right were the ones I decided on, later edited and which made it to the post.

Editing the photos

I will mention here that editing in Camera Raw from Bridge is quite a good idea especially to easily fix the white balance and do simple adjustments like contrast, exposure, etc. However, I generally edit in Adobe Photoshop CS6. Things I will do to adjust my photos: Curves, Levels, Exposure, Contrast, Colour Balance and Hue/Saturation. These are all easily found in the Image>Adjustments tab and I've been using them for ages so I can edit a photo in a couple minutes. My main aim with editing is to make the photos look bright, white and cropped nicely. Brightening my photos makes them look somewhat more professional and allows for consistency across all my blog posts. Of course not all of my photos are of beauty products against a white background, so in the case of editing an outfit post, for example, I will do different editing there.
IMG_9966 copy
If I want to add text to my photos, I will use the same font I have in previous posts to maintain consistency and use text colour that will compliment the photo. Once I am satisfied with the photo, I will finally change the 'Image Size' to a width of 1000 (not for any particular reason - it's just a nice even number), and I don't want to be saving my images in the original size because that takes up too much room and takes too long to load on my blog. I do still want it to be a relatively high resolution to make sure the quality looks good on my blog.

Process: Bridge > Review Mode > Photoshop > Flickr

Posting the photos

I upload my photos to Flickr instead of Blogger because Blogger just butchers the quality. I will upload my photos there and copy and paste the html over, removing the link to the actual Flickr post. I will choose where the photos go in the post so everything looks pretty nice and it makes sense. I will always put photos where it's relevant or helpful to the reader, I guess. Sometimes that extra photo or two isn't necessary, so if I find it's just not cutting it, I'll remove the odd photo before I hit publish. Sometimes you don't need three photos of essentially the same thing. Lately I have also been grouping photos together which offers something different and looks quite nice, I think. Always feel free to mix it up a bit and just experiment.


I hope you may have found this post helpful in any way. Let me know! x

My Everyday Natural Makeup



I don't tend to do anything too fancy when it comes to makeup, mostly because I'm not too bothered and I'm a poor student most of the time. Today I thought I'd share what makeup products I use and what I do in terms of my makeup most days. Winged eyeliner is obviously missing from here, but that does make an appearance at least a few times a week and I've recently written a post on that.

Something to be noted is that I don't have the best skin - it may look pretty good and relatively clear because well that's what my camera and good window light makes it look like. However, I do have pretty crap skin these days - break outs left right and centre so obviously all I do is try to make that look better and give my skin a little more radiance.
base
In terms of base, I like to use two concealers at the moment to either conceal spots or use as an under eye concealer. I used to use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer a little while back but eventually I thought it was too dry on my skin. I have bought it back though, because with sufficient moisturising, etc it does a good job at covering spots and being a really good colour for my skin. I am ridiculously pale if you haven't noticed, so this doesn't look one bit orange on me. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is my concealer of choice for under my eyes but I do use it all over my face sometimes. It's extremely glowy looking with medium coverage, so that's why I don't tend to use it on spots all of the time as it makes my face look really greasy by the end of the day (powder is the key, I guess). Speaking of that, my powder of choice is the very popular Rimmel Stay Matte.

I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend my concealer and foundation if I use it. I tend not to wear foundation too much, but when I do it's probably one from Rimmel. If I don't wear foundation, sometimes under concealer I will put some of the Lush Jackie Oates Colour Supplement. This is wonderful stuff. It just gives my skin a really nice glow from underneath and it's weirdly not such a greasy glow. This is really good for pale skinned people as well. All of the brushes I use are Real Techniques (I also use the Blush brush and Powder brush) - it's pretty standard stuff.
IMG_0215 copy
The mascara I tend to reach for these days is the Maybelline Miss Manga. It lengthens my lashes so well and makes them look fluttery. I can build up the volume but most of the time I'm not too fussed on mascara as long as it separates and blackens my lashes. I'm also not one of those people who like to add coat after coat.

I feel so much better after I've filled in my eyebrows a little. The elf Eyebrow Kit isn't life changing (mine is in Light Brown by the way), but it does the job for me at the moment and I tend to just apply it using the little plastic brush included. I only really use the wax side (left), but overall it gives my eyebrows a bit more colour and sets them down really well. Also, one of my absolute favourites is using a blush these days. I reach for the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride. It gives such a subtle pretty look and I won't lie, the packaging is so nice and feels like really good quality. I guess you're wondering why I haven't mentioned a lip product and that's because I'm extremely lazy with my lips - you're lucky to find me putting on lip balm daily!

So, thats it! My everyday makeup routine. Definitely not the best, but I'm not going to spend an hour doing my makeup everyday. Do you like any of the products I've mentioned? x

This Week: Cafes, Holidays & Quantity vs Quality

thisweekaug
follow me on instagram @emmaorwhatever

Hey everyone. I haven't done a 'This Week' post in about a month and that's because I didn't feel inspired to write them anymore, but I definitely think I'll start doing them again now - but maybe not every week if I don't feel like it. I guess the personal element to my blog has gone a little lately as I've been writing on other things and working on blog posts I'm really excited to share. I've been writing less posts recently but sticking to things that I feel like will make a really great blog post (and taking and editing photos I'm happy with). I've got a post coming up on how my photographic process for my blog, so if you're interested in the photography side of things on blogs, that could be something you might like to read.

One thing I'll mention about my blog is that I think I'm really enjoying making quality blog posts where it may take me a little longer to get the perfect shots and edits, but in the end I don't feel like I'm forcing myself to do it. It's something I enjoy, and something to be reminded of is that there are no rules in blogging.

So since it's been so long, I guess I'll tell you a little about what's been going on in my life. I'm currently nearing the mid term break for this semester and it's gone very fast but I'm so grateful to be getting a bit of time off in a week (however, I'm sure I'll have lots to do for my assignments during the two weeks). It's been a little stressful lately but I think I've got through the worst of it, including a nerve-wracking group presentation (literally my least favourite thing ever), but now that's done I feel quite glad and a little proud of myself.

Between the assignments I've been making sure to spend time with friends and lately I've been heading to a cafe on High Street called Chuffed. I think it's pretty well known with Auckland locals, but this is a cute little place I recommend checking out. Both times I've been I've had eggs on toast as you can't go wrong with that, but from the look of other people's food everything looks really nice. It's basically instagram heaven too, so you know, you can keep that in mind too. For this semester I have most of Friday's off so it's amazing to just finish early and go for brunch at a cafe. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, having amazing cafes and cute places to go to during Uni breaks is one of my favourite things about this whole thing.

I'm currently binge-watching American Horror Story while it begins to get warmer - Spring is just around the corner! I hope you guys have a lovely day and I'll speak to you soon.

Little Ways to Decorate Your Room



Plants: Even though I only have the odd plant around now (because they all pretty much died), I think adding some green to your room is always a good idea. Not only do they look nice and help fill empty spaces, but it just creates a nicer environment overall. Ideally you would put them into some cute handmade painted ones, or get simple monochrome ones. I haven't been very good at this, just leaving them in the plastic pots they came in. It's pretty much standard knowledge that cacti are easy to look after and I would say they are, as long as you do water them occasionally and keep them in the right sunlight to shade ratio.

Magazines and Art: I buy exactly two magazines - Frankie and Yen. Frankie is undoubtedly my favourite for it's thick, quality matte pages and it's stories. Something else that's pretty great about this magazine is the art posters that come with it every issue, and they occasionally chuck in things like postcards, art cards and labels which look pretty on your wall. In their most recent issue they included this art card pictured above which I'll be blu tacking to my wall at some stage.
IMG_0181
Dishes: Plates or dishes are really adorable to display any little object you have. Be that jewellery (rings are especially cute), nail polish, tools like nail files, clippers, etc, beauty products, hairties, bobby pins, perfume... the list goes on. I think it looks nice and sometimes it's better than tucking all your things away and never seeing them.

One of the dishes pictured is from a cute Japanese store called Daiso (an adorable flattened pig face), and the other is the saucer for a tea cup candle I got a while ago from Typo.
IMG_0158
IMG_0159
IMG_0189
Polaroids: This polaroid wall was something I did a few weeks ago and I'm pretty happy with it. You could certainly make it more exciting by displaying your polaroids with twine/string, little pegs, bunting, etc, but I chose to just blu tac them all to make a sort of square shape. It's always nice to have some photos of friends or memories on your wall.

Perfume Bottles: I like to display my perfume bottles (the only two I have, really) and these would usually be seen on my dresser or sitting on a dish like I mentioned before. I also have kept the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream box because let's face it, that's way too pretty to throw away. So once again, maybe try putting your perfumes or beauty products on display (less is always more though) to mix it up.
IMG_0167
Candles: I'm sure you all know how effective candles can be in making a room look pretty or more cosy, and overall candles will definitely give you some atmosphere. I have a three wick Mahogany Teakwood candle from Bath and Bodyworks that I'm using at the moment. It's a very typical dark, musky, 'man' smell I guess you could say. Sometimes overly sweet scents just aren't too nice, so I do prefer fresh or dark, 'cosy' scents most of the time.


What are the little things you do to decorate your room?

Blog Design for Beginners

I'm no HTML expert, I assure you, but over the couple years I've been blogging properly I have picked up some very useful tips from various places and people that have helped me a lot. I haven't purchased a blog template or header: everything you see on my blog I have done myself, and although it's nothing fancy, as I like my blog to look clean and simple, if you too want to make your blog look better on a budget then here are some tips. Bear in mind most of these tips will probably be better for Blogger users as that's what I use.

Simple, affordable blog templates
If you want to just buy a blog template then here are some good ones I've found (and have been mulling over buying) that are affordable: AinezStudio, PinkPotDesigns, PipDig, MariaGall, MTHblog, MangoBlogsShop.

Make your blog images the same width in the CSS box
Bloomin' Rouge has done some great posts on the basics of designing a blog so I'd recommend you check those out and read them. One of the tips she had was to make all your blog images the same size and I think this makes everything a lot easier so your images are automatically sized the same when you post them. To do this, through the blogger template designer, scroll down to the CSS box and paste in (replace the 640px with whatever width):

/* custom – set post image size start */
.post-body img {
width: 640px;
height: auto;
}
/* custom – set post image size end */


Justify your post text in your CSS box
Basically your CSS box is just a quicker way to adapt your HTML so most or all of the adjustments I do is from this. I should mention if you are doing a lot of copy and pasting in the CSS box, make sure you hit enter after each one because sometimes it won't work. Like the previous tip, go through to your CSS box and paste in:

.post{ text-align: justify; }

Posting your images on Flickr or on Blogger
If you upload your photos directly to Blogger, you can see how the quality looks worse compared to if you upload them on a site like Flickr, Photobucket or Imgur and copy and paste the html link. I personally like uploading on Flickr because in the past when I've uploaded through Blogger sometimes the photo quality looks weird or it changes the colouring of it, etc. If you do upload to Flickr though, your photos won't show up on the Popular Posts widget if you have one. However, this moves me onto my next tip...

Make your own Popular Posts widget, or any posts widget
You can easily make your own widget of text, links and posts on your sidebar so readers can see different posts that may just get buried in your archive. All you have to do is add an html widget to your blogger sidebar and do the html yourself. I'll give you an example of some html which is made up of a photo, text underneath it and the photo linked to the correct post.

<a data-flickr-embed="true" href="http://ohflowerchild.blogspot.co.nz/2015/08/july.html" title="MONTHLY REVIEW: JULY"><img alt="19052158233_57d3b6be1e_o copy" height="164" src="https://farm1.staticflickr.com/326/20001705270_071edf6bd6_o.jpg" width="246" / /></a><script async="" charset="utf-8" src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js"></script></center><center>MONTHLY REVIEW: JULY<br /><br /><br />

It may look crazy and complicated, however it's really simple. As you can see my sidebar has photos and links to other posts on my blog, and this is the html for the first photo at the moment. Basically you paste the html link from Flickr, you can replace the 'title' with whatever you want (in this case MONTHLY REVIEW: JULY) and add in the text underneath by using <br> (one enter) where you want it. On my sidebar, I repeated this process with all the photos and using three <br>'s between each post. As for sizing your image so it fits on your sidebar, do this in photoshop before you upload the photo.

Center your post titles and/or date, as well as any sidebar titles or text
Centering things can make everything look a lot more neater in some ways. At the moment I don't have a centered title or date for my posts but if you want this is how you do it. Paste this in your CSS box:

.post-title {
text-align: center;
}

.date-header {
text-align: center;
}

You can also just use the <center> tag and </center> (closing) tag to center anything you want but you probably know that already. This is in terms of sidebar text or titles as I think it generally looks better this way.

Social media icons, the easy way
I could never figure out for the life of me how to put social media icons on my blog so I followed another method I found on the internet and it's really easy. This video explains it all, but you basically do it through a blogger post.


Everything I've learnt I've basically just googled so if there's anything you need to do, chances are it will be somewhere on google. Thanks for reading, and hopefully you found some of this useful!

Perfecting Your Winged Eyeliner



Let's face it, you'll probably never have *perfect* winged eyeliner, but you can come pretty damned close, and it's all about the product you use vs. the technique you implement. I won't lie and say I apply it perfectly every time, but practice really does make perfect. I'm having a real moment with liquid eyeliner, so here are some of the things I do when I apply it. Everyone's different, but I think I've got my technique down.

First of all, the eyeliner I use (and LOVE) is Rimmel's Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner. I'll list it's many pros for you now: the formula is very, very black and you have no danger of it looking brown or faded, it's very easy to use (to me, at least) and it literally stays put all day. I think one of the biggest benefits of this particular eyeliner is it's sturdy 'brush' or tip, as it's not flimsy at all and easy to press firmly across the eye line and draw a sharp line. With the Rimmel eyeliner, I generally don't find it a problem to get that really black look as it's a very dark formula and very inky/pigmented. It dries down nicely and stays put until I take it off.

Generally I like to apply my eyeliner with a medium thickness and a wing which doesn't extend to far - maybe a third of the way up towards the direction of the eyebrow. I personally like a flick that isn't too much at an angle, but titled only slightly upwards. I start with drawing the wing first, drawing a thin, sometimes imperfect line to start off with the general angle of the flick. I will then leave the tip of the wing thin and drag the liner across towards my eye, relatively thick and reducing in thickness towards the inner eye. I fill in any parts that don't look black enough, for example right near the eyeline. If you have light coloured eyelashes (I do right at the eyeline) it's best to use a good mascara after your eyeliner to make everything blacker. Mascara can also cover up some little mistakes from your eyeliner.

I feel like I should be embracing this look as much as possible as it's currently winter here and I do think that in the summer I won't be bothered with a heavier eye look. Do you like doing winged eyeliner and how do you go about it?

What's In My Uni Bag



This post has been in the works for quite some time, as I've already had three weeks of Semester Two (um, what?), but just haven't really had time to take pictures and get everything together! What's in my bag isn't terribly exciting and I don't hoard around loads like some people do, but here is what is my in bag (realistically - no, I don't take that powder and brush no matter how much I probably should).
IMG_0055
My bag is from Glassons and I got it for $40 NZD which I think is a pretty good price for a bag. When I was looking for one for this semester, all I wanted was something simple in a neutral colour. I think I've achieved that, and this bag can literally fit loads - laptop, books, you name it.

My laptop is a MacBook Air 13" and getting it was the best decision of my life (honestly). Once you go Mac, you never go back, I say. I've got so much use out of this, and the fact that it's an Air makes it just that bit lighter to carry around. I don't regret in the slightest! I also have a cover for it which isn't pictured. I had to get a hard drive for some of my Uni work, and because at the moment I'm needing to take it in some days, you'll also find that in my bag. Once I don't use it for Uni anymore, I'll probably find this incredibly useful for storage of pictures, etc because it's a 1TB. Whilst we're on the technical side of things, I also have a pair of Urban Outfitters Happy Plugs earphones in the colour Copper. I adore the look of these and they sit pretty in the clear case they came in. I also, of course, have my phone with me at all times which has a Submarine case on it from society6/cactei which is featured in many of my instragrams.
IMG_0067 copy
Also from Urban Outfitters are these sunglasses which I've mentioned a few times here before. They are so nice, I'd really recommend getting sunglasses from UO. My pencil case is from Kikki.K which I got at the start of the year, and it's the perfect little case for pens and highlighters for when I need to study during breaks. To go with that is a Paperchase Notebook that I bought on Asos. It has plenty of lined paper and the most important part - subject dividers! I take notes in lectures on my laptop and then copy the most important notes over to my notebook.

I also have an Asos Cardholder which arrived in the mail recently. I don't actually like having a big purse as I'm always having to get out my transport card and eftpos card, etc so having a cardholder which fits two cards on the back and one on the inside is really handy. I also chuck some loyalty cards in my bag from drink places, book places, etc. Loose things like this and the cardholder actually live in a separate zipped clutch bag (which clips inside the main bag) so I don't have anything small at the bottom of it. This feature of the bag is so, so handy. Lastly I have a Lip Balm from Lush, and that's the extent of the make-up that ever lives inside my bag (I'm too lazy to touch up during the day).

So, what's in your bag at the moment?

July

IMG_9927
This month has been a weird one. I had most of the month off from Uni, so I had lots of spare time. But all of a sudden it's been two weeks and I feel like I'm constantly rushing around and have a never ending to-do list. I have exactly a month until my mid semester break, so let's face it, I'll be counting down the days.

A huge love of mine this month has been the Dear July videos that Emily curates on her YouTube channel. I have found so much inspiration and loveliness from them, and my favourite has got to be this one by Emily herself. I even wrote down part of what she said in my diary because it spoke to me so much. There are many things I loved in the past 31 days, including everything from beauty, books and experiences, but I felt Letters To July deserved it's own mention early on.

Something I enjoyed doing this month was going to the Wunderrūma exhibition at the Auckland Art Gallery (sneak peak here). I have a huge love for the Auckland Art Gallery building, and it's nice that it's just across the road from my University. The Wunderrūma exhibition (which means wonder in German and room in Maori) was one of my favourite exhibitions I've seen at the gallery - I love jewellery, but there were also just something interesting, slightly abstract and colourful objects to look at and it was really lovely. If you live in Auckland I'd recommend going!
1
I have a few good beauty things to mention this month. First of all, I'll mention the bath bomb I did a post on recently, and it's the Limited Edition Lord of Misrule bath bomb which I believe is a Christmas item that has come out as part of the Mid Winter Christmas. This is my favourite bath bomb I've tried, I love the smell and I love how it looks in the bath. The next item is another Lush item, and trust me, this one is really good. It's the Lush Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving, for face and body. I haven't used it on my body, but it works really well with my skin, leaving it so soft and clean. You leave it on for ten minutes and then scrub your skin with it afterwards. There are those times where my skin feels gross and gunky and just not clean enough. This honestly just clears out all the dead skin and leaves my face so refreshed. I'd say this is good for combination or oily/acne prone skin - the minty smell is so nice as well. I also like this because it's self-preserving, meaning it will last way longer than the fresh face masks.

I only have one make-up item I've been liking in July, and that is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I'm aware this is basically a cult item (for some) in the blogging world and pretty much everyone has heard of it. I went off this for a while as it was really drying on my skin but no concealer I've tried gives me enough coverage without having some other problem with it. This is drying at times, however I've learnt to use it subtly and only on spots - never under the eyes as it's just crease city basically. This also matches my skin colour well unlike many things so that's probably what makes me like it more. I've also been liking the Garnier Micellar Water which has been compared to Bioderma. I've tried and loved Bioderma, and this one is very similar (and cheaper).

I used to use this shampoo and conditioner a little while ago - it's from L'OREAL and is meant to give moisture and be good for coloured hair. I think they've had a bit of packaging change, but it is similar. I don't know if they've changed the formula or anything, but I'm going to say this right now - I think this is my favourite shampoo and conditioner. It makes my hair feel soft and full of moisture, no tangles or anything. I also like that it's sulphate-free because that is a bonus. I also have coloured hair, so if it does what it claims to do (maintain/brighten colour), then I feel like there's nothing else I could look for in a shampoo and conditioner. I've tried the smoothing version of these too and they're both really good!
IMG_9943
In terms of books, the last few months I've started to mention every book I've read and give a quick review of sorts, however, I think from now I'll just mention my favourite books I've read and tell you why I like them so much! You can see everything I've read on Good Reads, by the way.

I'd say the best book I read in July was The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. This wasn't YA fiction, so I was kind of hesitant to read it because you know, it's about adults. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this, because it was such a sweet, funny story. I feel like a lot of book 'ideas' can be overdone, and sometimes books are about the same sort of thing, but this was just refreshing and different. The tone of the book reminded me of The Humans by Matt Haig; a book I read way back at the beginning of the year and I loved. You can really feel the character progression of Don in this book, and overall this was what I would describe as an unconventional love story. It was actually quite funny in parts, and you just kind of have to read it to see.

Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsell was the other book I really liked this month. This was so easy to read, because the actual writing was to the point and sometimes I just want that in a book. The story was simple and easy to follow along with too (well, probably because it's meant to be for younger-than-me readers). This story dealt with computer game addiction (Audrey's brother) and anxiety/mental disorders (Audrey). I connected with this story and felt like overall it was a very good idea for a book. Anxiety and social disorders are something that needs to be written about in books more, I think, and it was nice to read about Audrey and what she was going through. The 'love' part of this book is subtle and really sweet in parts; I mean it's just the right amount, really. This was a sweet and short story with some themes that made me think!


As usual with me, when it comes to music, I listen to one artist or album over and over and over until I get sick of it, and then move onto the next thing. At the start of the month I was listening to FKA twigs and my favourite songs are definitely Two Weeks, Pendulum and Give Up. If you like chill, slightly alternative music then give FKA twigs a go.

I think someone during the month mentioned Royal Blood so I started listening to them a bit, again. This band is so good. I was mainly listening to their Spotify Live Sessions.

Lana Del Rey has been the artist that has overtaken my month, really. I've been listening to her again (it seems these days I mainly just go back to old favourites?) and I have to say I love her album Ultraviolence the most.

Also I forgot that the song Sunburn by Ed Sheeran existed so that gave me a little nostalgia. Listening to him again makes me so excited for December's concert!

P.S. You know that thing I mentioned in the beginning of the post, Letters to July? I might have made one myself. I didn't know if I should just keep it to myself, but I've uploaded it to my channel, so give it a watch if you'd like.


I hope you liked reading this pretty massive post - have a good day and I'll see you next week for some more posts.
