Entertainment

Entertainment is open to but not limited to, cinematic masterpieces, fashionista tips, jaw dropping television series, theatrical performances along with a sprinkle of happy randomness that comes from entertainment. It really does encompass so much and if in doubt, entertainment will have you covered.

The Different Provinces of Witchcraft

Modern day witchcraft is different from modern perceptions, and everything you probably assumed about it. But in this wild world of magical items, fairy sightings and spell jars, you may find yourself beginning to believe in something that is very much different from your usual world of religion…

Witchcraft Vs Paganism: Where does Religion end? And where does Wicca begin?

There is a crossover in the witchcraft community, as to where does witchcraft begin and paganism end? Can there be a crossover, and can you be both? Well its both a yes and a no answer, because of the open-ended definition of paganism, and how its cultural impact has influenced the witchcraft community, and how witchcraft has branched away from the religious definition it perhaps once had.

Movie Music

Ever watched a movie and been surprised by great musical scenes, even though it’s not a musical? I certainly have, so I ran through some of my favourite examples!

How Women Can Inspire More Change in the World…

As Women’s History month comes to a close, I personally have found this month more educational then usual when it comes to Women. But ironically, it wasn’t the history side of things I’ve been educating myself on. It’s what women can do for the future.

5 Ways to Feel More Mentally Stable

As someone who has suffered with depression for the past three years, I know how difficult the struggle is. I don’t think there is any pain quite like fighting your brain, especially when you are at your lowest.

Drive To Survive: Season 3 Review

As we have said several times here at Bloom, we are big fans of Netflix’s Drive to Survive series documenting the drama of the Formula 1 season. A new series has just arrived – does it live up to the hype?

How to Tame your Curly Head

This has been a one-woman mission for me – trying to get my hair to go back to its original curl pattern and after years of trial and error, I found these methods the best to bring back those destroyed curls

Volkswagen – Nazi People’s Car to 60s Hippie Icon

The cutesy Volkswagen Beetle, star of movies like Herbie Goes Bananas, started life as the perfect car for the subjects of Hitler’s Third Reich. I looked at the story of how it was reclaimed from the Nazis to become a symbol of counterculture and ubiquity.

Things To Do Before Lockdown’s Over

The UK has seemingly been in lockdown for ever, and with new dates of freedom on the horizon, Heather Dalgleish thinks everyone is ready for some time out of the house. But whilst we are still kept indoors and maybe aren’t feeling our best, it’s time more than ever to work on ourselves and get us to be the best versions of ourselves we can be.

Rex Orange County – A Modern McCartney?

Few artists capture the imagination like Rex Orange County. Despite relatively little chart success, he is revered by critics, fans and other artists as a strikingly adept musician with a refreshingly new, genre-transcending approach to songwriting. Jonathan Tonge explains why he believes people will remember him for years to come.

5 Sports For The Non-Sporty

Classic TV You Probably Forgot About

I’m 22 now and my earliest memories are tape decks, VHS videos, having one computer for the house with a giant monitor that weighed more than a bus and those TVs with the big fat backs. I’m not old by any stretch but if I ever accidentally switch over to a kids’ TV channel now, I’m left wondering where it all went wrong…

Should We Be Eating Seasonally?

With the ebb and flow of the Earth’s seasons, the flux between rainfall in Spring to frost in Winter and the Summer sun, farmers are able to harvest respective foods that rely on the seasonal climates to grow and thrive. Niamh Heron talks why you should eat seasonally and the benefits from this.

Solo Dates

St Valentine isn’t the patron saint of finding the first person on the street and shacking up for the Valentine’s season. Sure, true companionship is wonderful, but as many extremely cliché movies will tell you – you can’t really love anything until you learn to love yourself.

A Million Love Songs Later

For as long as music has existed, people have used it to pay tribute to love. It’s a deep, personal way to communicate your feelings and to do it expertly requires either a massive stroke of luck or very large reserves of songwriting expertise. There are millions out there, but which one takes the biscuit as the best? It’s impossible to say with so much choice, so here’s five of my favourites (in no particular order!)

Sea Shanties – Who Were The Wellermen?

Shanties have enjoyed something of a renaissance of late, so surely we should investigate exactly why it is they fell out of favour in the first place. It’s a relatively simple story and it has to do with a few things, but it’s mainly the fact that time moved on while they stood still.

January Jams

The new year brings new shots at finding new artists, new music and discovering music that you will love. My new years resolution was to listen to more female artists, mainly because most of the music I am recommended by Spotify is definitely male dominated. So my current playlist is female with a sprinkle of male and in all honesty, I’m loving it. It means I’ve definitely discovered new artists that add a whole lot of flair, sass and excitement, that bring my January playlist up to fantastic standard for the new year.
