Style on Screen: A Star Is Born, To All The Boys, Scream Queens

There’s nothing like a good binge watch to make you want to update your wardrobe right?

I mean, have you ever left a cinema or watched a show and thought ‘wow – I wish I had those shoes!’ or ‘I’d never have thought to pair that shirt with those trousers…’ That kind of inspiration can change your life.

There are some great roles and movies for actresses that have appeared onscreen through the years that not only represent a range of different women but also reflect our different styles.

Time to go through just a few shows/films that popped into my head with those ladies that had a style that stuck with me. I’ve also gone into a little bit of detail as to why this might be towards the end.

Let’s see if there are any surprising ones…

Zayn’s debut album is set to be a hit…

From his debut single ‘Pillowtalk’, Zayn has shown his fans and those in the music world just what he’s been working on.

A few weeks ago, Zayn posted the audio to song ‘iT’s YoU‘, a slow relaxing tune with Zayn giving us a taste of his vocal range as he hits the high notes in the chorus. Zayn then surprised his Twitter followers with the link to the latest track ‘LIKE I WOULD’.

Fans instantly fell in love with the track, which is more likely to get you on a dancefloor unlike Zayn’s previously released songs.

Personally this is my favourite song that Zayn has released so far. It has a Can’t Feel My Face/The Weeknd kind of vibe, and it’s been on repeat and in my head all day.

It’s also been reported that Zayn was filming in Manchester, UK for his next music video, which apparently takes place in a housing estate.

The Importance of Sticking To A Blog Theme

When you have a blog that is specifically about certain topics, it can be hard to stop yourself from writing posts on every thought that pops into your head.

Here on Discs and Reels, I like to write about films that I’ve seen, newly released trailers, and songs that I’ve heard on the radio or recently discovered online. I started this blog so that I could write about things that I love: movies and music.

As a film graduate, my passion for film has grown and developed since taking Film Studies at A Level. My love of sharing music came from being the one that my family turned to to create a playlist for our get-togethers and having two radio shows at my university radio station.

But these aren’t the only passions of mine. I also love to read, and I have strong opinions on things that affect me as a graduate living back at home and looking for work. I love watching television shows that remind me of being a kid but are witty and imaginative like Adventure Time and Regular Show. I spend time creating nail art designs on my nails, and love the feeling of buying new clothes and jewellery. I love using social media to interact with people that I might not have known if it wasn’t for Twitter. I love trying new foods, playing on Assassins Creed, or detective games like LA Noire, or action games like the latest reboot of Lara Croft.

I fit so many categories that I sometimes find it hard to understand what kind of person I am. Am I a bookworm? A film buff? A gamer? A girly fashionista that loves to paint my nails?

Questioning myself has been a pretty common activity while looking for a job. With so many skills and things that I enjoy, what kind of job would I really like? Which would be the best for my first step into my graduate career? What kind of job would get me further in life? It’s almost the same with my blog – which topics will my readers like more? Which posts will get more interaction and interest my followers? Is this post worth writing?
