Fabulous Famous Five

Well that’s clearly the best title ever – alliteration, informative and it has the word fabulous, what more could you want? For today’s post, I thought about sharing my top 5 famous people and explaining why i love them so much. If you know me as a person, you’ll already know about a few of these but if you don’t: welcome to Scarlett’s fantasy mind! – P.S If you haven’t gathered by now, it’s Scarlett writing this.

ishot-2321. Zak Bagans: Like i said, if you know me you’ll already know about this. I have a huge obsession with Ghost Adventures so this person and the next person will come as no surprise to you. Zak Bagans is a macho ghost hunter who saves dogs – what more could you wish for? For those who don’t know who Zak Bagans is: Zachary Alexander (Zak) Bagans (born on April 5, 1977) is the lead investigator and co-founder of the Ghost Adventures Crew organization, one of the largest worldwide network of professional paranormal investigators. Zak was born in Washington, D.C. and currently lives in Las Vegas, NV. I can easily admit my love for Zak Bagans – even when i don’t love easily. After years of watching Ghost Adventures daily, Zak and the crew have increasingly become part of my life – how ever sad that may sound. I’m currently watching the Ghost Adventures marathon on Really (UK TV) too, so i’m even getting the watch Zak’s face in night vision as we speak.

I don’t just have a thing for Zak because of his muscular physique and loving nature – Zak is my inspiration when it comes to my future because i’ve always wanted to become a Ghost Hunter. Zak Bagans has added to that dream by giving me the knowledge of equipment and terminology that i would need to pursue this – he’s shown me the dangers and benefits of the job.

size_550x415_ZakBobbyMackeypuppyfeedingHaving grown up for the past few years with Zak as my guide i suppose i’ve just got used to him being around, even though he’s not physically around. Some of you may have your doubts about the evidence on Ghost  Adventures and from my person blog post you can see my opinions on that – i too believe some of their evidence may be fake, but i do truly believe in a majority of their evidence.

If Zak Bagans wasn’t so kind hearted and loving, i personally would think he is rather stuck up – i did when i first started watching Ghost Adventures because his aggressive nature seemed to dominate his personality. It wasn’t until i got more fond of the show when i started to discover his loving nature. Zak is successful – he has his own CD, Book, Website, Clothing Line and of course, his own show! Overall, Zak Bagans is my number one favourite famous person because of his witty, loving and manly personality. I also have a strange obsession with his hands…

Elizabeth-Ruth-Pettyjohn-Test-7932-950x14252. Aaron Goodwin: So Aaron Goodwin is also from Ghost Adventures, so i apologise if you don’t watch Ghost Adventures and find these two people as complete mysteries to you. So Aaron, to me, seems like the most down to earth of the Ghost Adventures Crew, and he’s without a doubt the funniest. To be honest, Aaron is a very close first with Zak but Zak just clenches that win for me… Aaron’s fabulous beard, facial expressions and witty humour have me in stitches constantly throughout the show which put a lighter mood to it instead of a scary, ghostly tone.

Aaron also has his own website and his own clothing brand: Bigsteppin’, which is rather snazzy i might add – i’ve been begging my parents for a Bigsteppin’ tank top for over a year now but of course they wont order it because it’s from America! Not only does he have a website –

bigstep

Aaron is also the maker of ‘Aaron’s Vlog’ which shows all us Ghost Adventures fans what the crew get up to during the filming of GA – Thank you Aaron!

As well as Aaron’s brilliance with Ghost Adventures, he also gives to charity- at Christmas he gave unfortunate children hundreds of toys. So over all, Aaron is amazing because he’s 1, part of the Ghost Adventures Crew 2, Is fabulously funny 3, Gives to charity 4, Shows us what the GAC gets up to during filming.

Johnny Depp, Self Assignment, April 1, 19953. Johnny Depp: So if you don’t know who Johnny Depp is you’ve been living in a cave for the whole of your life. John Christopher “Johnny” Depp II is an American actor, film producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild award for Best Actor. I think that really all i need to do to explain my love for Johnny Depp is show you a picture – what more can i say? The cheek bones and the eyes and his HANDS! Once again, i have a thing for hands… Depp has more than 12 tattoos mapped out over his body. They include his son’s name scripted on his right forearm and daughter Lily-Rose’s above his heart, and a Native American profile on his right bicep paying homage to his Cherokee heritage. I love tattoo’s on any man, so Johnny Depp having tattoo’s is a just a bonus. His style is fabulous and retro – just another little thing that i like about him. Also, from what i’ve heard and seen, he’s usually wearing a cute plastic necklace his daughter made him.Johnny-Depp

To me, Johnny seems really down to earth and he most certainly doesn’t take being a huge star for granted “He’s even signed autographs for crowds at the airport while carrying luggage,” says editor Steve Cyrkin. To some people that doesn’t mean anything, but for a common girl like me, the people i look up to most being humble is something i like. Depp’s role in certain films also stand out to me: Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissor hands, Sweeney Todd, Cry Baby and Gilbert Grape are some of my favourites.

helena-bonham-carter-1366609237_b4. Helena Bonham Carter: I don’t actually know why i like Helana so much – i think it’s her quirky style and her constant duoing with Johnny Depp. I especially like her in Sweeney Todd – one of my favourite films. Helena Bonham Carter, CBE is an English actress. She made her acting debut in a television adaptation of K. M. Peyton’s A Pattern of Roses before winning her first film role as the titular character in Lady Jane. It doesn’t surprise me that Helena is in nearly every Tim Burton film going – them being a couple and all. The reason she is a great role model for me is that she is completely down to earth – like all of the people i’ve mentioned here. She shows girls like me that you don’t have to be blonde and stick thin to be pretty because dresses completely unique.helena-bonham-carter2

She doesn’t care what others think about her style and likes the fact that she doesn’t follow the celebrity trends – so she’s like an inspiration to me. She dresses with good taste and she says that she is disgusted by plastic surgury and will never get it. More people should be more individual and realize that there is more than one type of beauty. Over all, Helena is a great actress that deserves to be praised for going against the stereotypes people have made about what being a god actress is, also because she’s really down to earth and of course is usually with Johnny Depp!

554948118526422724865. Jennifer Lawrence: So i basically like Jennifer Lawrence because she was in the Hunger Games, my favourite film. I don’t have much to say about Jennifer, other than she was great in the Hunger Games so i have a bit of a thing for her. From what i’ve heard she’s also major funny and witty.

She tripped over her Dior dress at the SAG Awards, boldly faced the wardrobe malfunction headlines, sassed late-night talk-show hosts and freaked out, fan-girl style, when she met Jack Nicholson. Something which would most likely happen me! All that and she also took home a lead actress Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” to boot.

To me she’s basically perfect, just because she isn’t perfect. And from this video you can clearly see that she’s amazingly funny! 

So until the next time,

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!

Welcome back, Scarlett!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! As of 22:53, yesterday evening, I had confirmation that Scarlett had returned from her boating trip around the country. This has personally made me very happy, and I’m sure that it has also made our circle of friends very happy too 😀 

So I have some welcome back messages from myself, Isaac and Lyndon, as we are the only ones insane enough to still be awake.

Isaac: Hey Scarlett, I missed you lots, it really hasn’t been the same without you here, I have missed all of our Xbox shenanigans loads! Welcome home!

Lyndon: When you left so did a part of me and now you have returned I feel complete again. Welcome home! 

Laura: Hey sweet pea! Funny thing is once you were on your return journey and now that you have returned home, I am suddenly much better. I hope you appreciate that I found you a banner that has American stars on them to welcome you home. I have missed you, very much, and I am very glad that you’re home safe and sound, and that you are now enjoying some peaceful catch up sleep. I will definitely see you later, I may even come and drag you out of your house before you do me. I hope you’ve had a lovely time. Our little family is all back together now! Welcome home honey! 🙂 

So, until the next time a friend leaves us all and then returns:

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!

Written by: Laura

Scarlett: I’ve just seen this and realised how much i love my friends – you’re all fabulous. I’m extremely happy to be home and in the presence of such amazing people again. And Laura, i do appreciate all of your time and effort to get me an American Welcome Home Banner – you know me so well.  

The Return of a Fabulous Friend!

JACK’S BACK! 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back Mr Jack Bradshaw to the country. He’s been away for practically a month in Thailand and he has been missed very much. Especially by me and Scarlett. We’ve been having serious withdrawal symptoms. Our group just doesn’t function as well without him. He completes our little family.

So I’m super duper happy that he’s back safe and sound. However, Scarlett has gone away on a boat trip for 10 days, so missed him coming back. Great timing (that was sarcasm). So she has to wait another ten days to see him. I want to laugh, but that’s unfair, so love and hugs Scarlett. I did send her some Snapchats of me and Jack together though to make her jealous. I’m really such an evil friend.

So welcome back Jack (from Laura as Scarlett hasn’t seen you yet). Hang on in there Scarlett! Have a lovely and safe trip 😀

So, I dedicate and address this to Scarlett:

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!

A Fabulous Adventure

P1100070 Us girls of ‘Fifty Shades of Fabulous’ had a thrilling day today so we thought we’d treat you all with a lovely post about what today’s adventures entailed, and this is the outcome:

We met up in our usual rendezvous place around 11 after, being the clever girl she is, Scarlett forgot to lock her door and had to run all the way home to lock it (Whoopsy). After that dilemma had been resolved, we took our final stroll around school and said goodbye to the teachers that are leaving and for Laura to faff, give thank you cards and to get our yearbooks signed- as always, Scarlett got rather overwhelmed with emotions after saying goodbye to her favorite teacher and started blubbering like a baby. I’m just an emotional person okay!? Two hours down the line, and we thought it’d be best if we vacated the school premises for the very last time – Good Bye School! You will be missed.

P1100182After that emotional trip, we met up with our fabulous friends: Isaac and Gyllene who greeted us with moaning about our lengthy trip around school. We then took a trip to various shops to buy enough liquids to keep us hydrated for the whole day – Water, Orange Juice, Irn-Bru, 7UP, J2O, Grape Soda and Energy Drinks so it’s safe to say we had enough. We also had to get ‘Fab’ ice lollies, because we thought we’d celebrate the opening of this fabulous new blog with a relevant item of food.

The trip then took us to a beautiful little spot we like to call ‘V-Shape’ because, to your amazement, it’s in the shape of a V – i know, baffling stuff. V-Shape is a little stream type area with sun and shade, so a perfect spot for us to go on such a beautiful day. We sat there from around 2-5:30 taking many photos which you can view here.

P1100059As V-Shape comes with it’s own built in pool, we though we’d go for a little paddle and being the cleverer of the two, Scarlett brought a spare Hawaiian shirt to wear in the water and Laura brought nothing. Therefore Scarlett came to the rescue and agreed to let Laura wear her dress sacrificing her dryness while walking home just to save Laura’s – I know, a great friend.

We ended the day by walking, or in Scarlett’s case; limping home (Because her shoes were giving her blisters *Cry*) but of course we had to stop off at Laura’s house for Scarlett to retrieve her dress – as usual while at Laura, Scarlett was given a drink and fed ham. Then Laura’s fabulous mother; Carolyn, gave Scarlett a lift home because of her poorly feet – Thanks Carolyn!

The highlight of the day was most definitely when a random dog ran up to us, pondered around for a second and then went and urinated all over Gyllene’s bag – priceless.

Many thanks to Isaac and Gyllene for making this day a fabulous one for us.

Until the next time,

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!
