WAR OF THE WEAVES: MARIAH CAREY VS KAREENA KAPOOR

Maybe it’s because the last minute Christmas shopping panic has set in and made me delusional, or maybe I’ve finally lost the plot, whatever the reason I thought I should share this random and pointless post I came up with while working on my glutes at the gym.

It’s no secret have a strange obsession with long, shiny, poker straight hair (at least not now), and after my little visit to India this year I came across a song I hadn’t heard in ages from the Bollywood flick Billu Barber starring Shar Rukh Khan – the video of which features actress Kareena Kapoor and the Holiest of weaves you have ever seen.

Until that is I immediately recalled Mariah’s consecrated golden mane from the Triumphant video – evidently the most epic thing about it. So I decided to randomly pair the two together and decide which  one of these beautiful ladies should win my War of the Weaves.

SPECSAVERS BRILLIANTLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OLYMPIC FAUX PAS

Kudos to the marketing team at Specsavers for taking advantage of a major Olympic faux pas.

The UK opticians created the above advertisement and released it today through online tweets and newspapers, after the South Korean flag was shown next to the North Korean women’s football team on the first day of sporting action. The company incorporated their catchphrase/slogan “Should have gone to specsavers” in Korean and cleverly made light of the situation whilst most likely drawing a horde of attention to their product and sales.

LEANNE MITCHELL WINS THE VOICE UK

I’ll be honest, I haven’t really been following BBC’s The Voice UK. It just seem like there are too many of these shows around now. However I streamed a few of the performances online this morning and was floored by Winner Leanne Mitchell. Her belts, runs, riffs, and that glorious falsetto, which always impresses any crowd, were on point and judging from all the other contestants bar (Bo Bruce), she really had no competition to begin with.

The lady can climb up and down the scale like she’s floating. Her voice is somewhat similar in terms of fluidity (and over-singing at times) to Christina Aguilera, but it’s much cleaner and no where near as gritty. In fact let’s just say if you mixed leona lewis, Christina Aguilera and Adele together you would get Leanne Mitchell.

Here’s hoping she has a great career ahead of her, and doesn’t destroy her gift by abusing her wonderful vocal chords – no shade intended.

Check out the deserving winner’s performances from saturday’s finale here.
