Top 5 disappointing book to movie adaptations | Top 5...

We all know that book to movie adaptation that really disappointed us? Well, here are my top 5 disappointed book to movie adaptations! (Please note that these are not written in a specific order!!!)

1. Vampire Academy
I've been in love with Vampire Academy for so long but I was so disappointed in the movie. VA is such a good book series and they made the movie into something girly and un-VA. Rose is not as badass as in the movies and there are some weird scenes in the movie... And one of the most important things: Dimitri wasn't as hot and funny as in the books... I hope they either going to remake the movie into a TV show or make a sequel but way better and with a hotter Dimitri...

2. The Divergent series: Insurgent
I love the Divergent book series and read them before the movies came out but wow... Insurgent was so weird. They used a lot of high tech in the movie, certain things were different and one of the things I hate the most is that Shailene Woodley didn't want to wear a wig... I'm sorry but wearing a wig is not such a big problem and certain wigs don't even look fake (I think they did a pretty good job in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse).

3. The Divergent series: Allegiant: Part 1
And then you have Allegiant... What the hell was that? Can you even call that a movie? Allegiant was such a disappointment and I'm really sorry for what they did to Veronica Roth's amazing books. I'm glad that they're not making a part 2 because I don't think they can make an even worse movie than that.

4. The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
I read The Maze Runner because I knew there were going to be movies so I read the book and then went to the cinema to watch the movie. I think the first movie was really good, there were some minor changes but that's normal and I understand. But they did some really weird things with The Scorch Trials so I'm curious what they're going to do with The Death Cure. I thought The Scorch Trials wasn't such a good book but the movie was even worse...

5. The Twilight Saga: New Moon
To be honest I didn't know a 5th adaptation that sucked so I picked New Moon only because it's my least favourite movie in the series because there's too much Jacob and I thought that Bella and Edward were often displayed kind of weirdly. Overall The Twilight Saga were really good movies and I secretly hope they're going to make a spin-off series or something!

Cruelty-free make-up

I'm not sure if you guys know but I love supporting cruelty-free make-up brands. There are a lot of YouTubers and bloggers that are supporting cruelty-free make-up brands too, 2 of them are JKissa and Evelina Forsell, and Sarah's Spark once made a video about how cruel her make-up bag is.

Cruelty-free make-up brands that I use: Essence, Catrice, Nyx, Wycon Cosmetics, Lush, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Sleek, Max & More, Ardell, Gosh, KIKO, MUA and Primark. I have a lot of make-up from these brands and I enjoy buying from them because they're cruelty free.

I do use some non-cruelty-free make-up brands but I try to buy as much cruelty-free make-up as possible. The brands that I do own make-up from: Maybelline and Rimmel. The good thing is that I only own 4 products from Maybelline and Rimmel: 2 Maybelline lipsticks, 1 Rimmel lipstick and 1 Maybelline gel eyeliner. The sad part is that I always use this gel eyeliner, so I'm trying to find a good cruelty free one (if you know one, let me know!).

And brands I own that I'm not sure of whether they are cruelty free or not: 2B, BE Creative Make-up (not certified, but they claim that they are), Park Avenue and 3 lipsticks (one is lipstick from a pharmacy and the other 2 are ones I bought from AliExpress). And again, the good thing is that I don't own that much make-up from these brands.

Brands that I want to buy from that are cruelty free: Morphe, BH Cosmetics, e.l.f., XoBeauty, LA Splash, Shiro Cosmetics, Ofra Cosmetics, The Body Shop, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Colourpop, Kat Von D, Pixi and Wet'N'Wild.

Make-up brands that I will never ever buy from: M.A.C and L'Oréal. I want to mention these because when I discovered that these brands are testing on animals I didn't want to buy anything from them. When I buy make-up, it's most of the time not that expensive, and these 2 brands are. I know L'Oréal is not that expensive, but it's more expensive than my Nyx products, products that I LOVE and that are cruelty free.

Click here or here to check out what make-up brands are cruelty free, don't worry if a make-up brand isn't on one of these lists. It's always possible that they are not on this list because of a specific reason or just that the brand is on other cruelty-free lists. You can always check on the internet, for example: "Essence cruelty free" and most of the time you're directed to their own website where they state that they are cruelty free. And please, if you're against animal testing, sign this petition to stop animal testing!

I do want to note that I still use skincare and hair products that aren't cruelty free, but I'm looking for some good cruelty-free alternatives. Let me know whether you buy a lot of cruelty-free make-up and what your favourite cruelty-free make-up brand/product is! 🐰

Een Hof van Vleugels en Verwoesting | Recensie

Titel: Een Hof van Vleugels en Verwoesting
Serie: Een Hof van Doorns en Rozen #3
Schrijver: Sarah J. Maas
Pagina's: 612 pagina's
Versie: Paperback
Uitgeverij: Van Goor
Score: ★★★★★


Feyre is terug naar het Letenhof gegaan om nuttige informatie te vinden voor hun strijd tegen de koning. Wanneer ze genoeg informatie heeft verzameld, gaat ze terug naar het Nachthof, zodat ze allemaal een aanval tegen de koning kunnen plannen. Maar om de koning te kunnen verslaan, moeten alle hoven samen vechten. Maar is dat wel mogelijk?

Ik herinner het me nog dat ik het eerste boek ben gaan halen in de bibliotheek en dat ik ben begonnen in deze geweldige wereld die Sarah J. Maas heeft gecreëerd. Ik hield ervan om het eerste boek te lezen en team Tamlin  te zijn tot ik het tweede boek las. Het tweede boek was nog beter en ik was zo into Rhysand in plaats van Tamlin. En nu ben ik aan het schrijven over het derde boek...

Een Hof van Vleugels en Verwoesting is zo'n geweldig en goed geschreven boek. Het is moeilijk om een ​​echte recensie te schrijven, omdat ik zo sprakeloos ben. Ik voelde zo veel verschillende emoties tijdens het lezen van Een Hof van Vleugels en Verwoesting. Ik was blij, boos en verdrietig. Op het einde was ik aan het wenen omdat Sarah J. Maas heel heel gemeen kan zijn! Sarah J. Maas is zeker een van mijn favoriete auteurs en ik kan niet wachten om een ​​ander boek te lezen dat door haar geschreven is!

Vergeet zeker niet mijn geïnspireerde make-up tutorial te bekijken! 💚

A Court of Wings and Ruin | Review

Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin
Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses #3
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Pages: 699 pages
Version: Paperback
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Rating: ★★★★★


Feyre's gone back to the Spring Court to find helpful information for their fight against the king. When she's gathered enough information, she goes back to the Night Court so they can all plan to attack the king. But to be able to defeat the king, all the courts must fight together. But is that even possible?

I remember bringing the first book from the library and starting in this amazing world that Sarah J. Mas created. I loved reading the first book and being team Tamlin until I read the second book. The second book was even better and I was so into Rhysand instead of Tamlin. And now here I am writing about the third book…

A Court of Wings and Ruin is such an amazing and well-written book. It's hard to write an actual review because I'm so speechless. I felt so many different emotions while reading ACOWAR. I felt happy, angry and sad. At the end I was crying because Sarah J. Maas can be very very evil! Sarah J. Maas is definitely one of my favourite authors and I cannot wait to read another book written by her!
