The Lemon Challenge

Hey, everyone! Emily and I just uploaded our new video of us doing the “Lemon Challenge”! It was so much harder than we expected it to be. We survived through the pain though!

So check that out below and tell us what you think! We’re working on getting more videos up and are working towards getting those videos out once a week (at least more often than we are now!).

Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, like the video, leave a comment, and share it with your friends!

Thanks!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Emily and I have a dilemma.  We have found that there are very many other YouTube channels with a similar name to Em & M.

So, we want to know if you guys have any ideas (any and all are appreciated!) for what we could change it to? Think about what you know about us and who we are as your minds brew up ideas.

We’ll be keeping the blog as Em & M. for in the summers when we’re posting here, but the Vlog definitely needs a new name! We’d like to stand out in the crowd rather then say “it doesn’t matter” and have the same name as 16 other people.

Thank you so much for any ideas you may give! We love you guys and hope you’ll enjoy the new stage of our blog! 🙂

Lots of Love,
~M.

Our New Vlog is Up!

You guys are amazing. You all have been wonderfully patient and supportive and you don’t know how much that means to us. Now, finally, we have started the promised Vlog. The first video is an introduction and can be seen below. We will be posting one video each week (unless something comes up that prevents us from doing so), and hope you all enjoy!

Also, during the summer, we will be writing blog posts, during the school year is when we’ll make out videos! In June we’ll be writing again!

Lots of Love,

~M.

Update!

Happy New year’s guys! So, I’m really sorry that we haven’t posted anything in a while, but there have been lots things happening in these past few months.

Here’s a quick update for 2016 and what it holds for Meg and me.

We’ve decided that, to go easier on ourselves, we’re going time split the year into two sections. During the school year (September-May) we’re gonna be working on our vlog on YouTube. So be looking for that! We’ll be starting that in the beginning of February, and we’re super excited for some of the ideas we’ve come up with!

And during the summer months (June-August), we’ll be working on our blog here!

So, I’m sorry to disappoint anyone, but we both feel like trying to do both would be a bit too stressful, and we don’t want to add that to all the other stuff we’re doing.

Thanks for understanding!
Love you lots💟
Emily

An Apology and (a very lame) Excuse

Wow, you haven’t heard from us for over two months. And I am extremely sorry about that. I’d love to have some great excuse for being absent, but honestly I was just lazy. And forgetful and busy and stuff but mainly just lazy. And, of course, now it’s that time of year where your thoughts are really on everything but blogging. Mine is usually on who I’ll be babysitting that week or what party/event I will be attending in the next few days. And when I do feel like or have time to write I have no inspiration which seriously sucks. Another part of this very lame excuse is another blog I’ve been writing ( http://www.ambrosiasantics.wordpress.com ) which counts for school so I’ve been trying my best to keep that one updated as much as possible. I’m pretty bad about that one too. BUT I will post again soon! I promise. I’ll probably post a cookie or Yule Log recipe soon, so make sure to watch for that!

Thank you all so much for being such great followers. We will try to post more frequently and get out more content soon! 

Lots of Love,

~M.

 

 

 

 

What I’m Excited About This Fall

Okay, wow. Can you guys believe that it’s fall already!? It seems like it was only last month that I was celebrating New year’s with my family, and here I am, getting ready to tell you what I’m excited about for fall…just wow.

Anyway, since I’m literally writing this like, 30 minutes before I have to send it to Meg, I decided just to do the easy thing, and tell you guys what I’m excited about for this fall… so here it goes!!!

1. The outfits!

I mean, who isn’t? All the boots, and the sweaters, and the scarves… and my personal favorite, flannels!!!! It’s just so… I don’t know, amazing.

2. Thanksgiving!!

Food. Lots and lots of food. But… that’s not the only reason I’m excited. I get to go see Hannah!!! (A.K.A my cousin) and the rest of our family. So, I have one question before I continue. Is our family the only family that is completely chaotic when we’re all together? (When you have… 12 people in one house it gets like that)

3. Mocking Jay part 2!!!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Need u say more? I don’t think so.

I think that’s all I’m gonna do since I have to get this to Meg, but the list goes on. So, tell us in the comments what you’re excited about!!!

Love you lots,
~Em

Fall Favorites – By Arianna Betty

Hiya! Thanks so much to Em & M. for letting me guest blog on your amazing blog! It’s so exciting as this is my first time I have guest blogged and feel very honoured to be asked. Thanks again so much to these lovely girls, definitely follow them, you won’t be disappointed!

So for this post I have been asked to do my Autumn/fall favourites! I am really looking forward to telling you guys what I’m excited about in the upcoming season, that is full of fun and sweets!

Let’s get into the post!

 

Fashion👗👖👢

  • Cozy Sweaters! Great for the cold season ahead! It’s all about layers in the Autumn as weather can be mixed so u could have a cool, funky top underneath your jumper or team it up with a hoody. Personal favourites of mine are my Abercrombie and Fitch hoodies. Love them so much!!

Boots! Now when I’m talking about boots I’m saying any kind of boots from Uggs to Dr.Martens. Boots are a big fashion statement in Autumn, in this country though we have to make sure we have a waterproof option and I am loving the boots I have included in my picture which are like Chelsea boot wellies. And they’re glittery !!!

  • Scarves and bobbly hats!! I have so many scarves and snoods and I just love how u can change an outfit by adding the scarf and of course sometimes we need it for warmth !! I say accessorize to the FULL!! U can make a simple outfit special this way and it doesn’t cost much!!

IMG_1944

The above pic collages as just a few of my fave t-shirts, shirts etc  that are available in the UK right now, really just to give an idea of what I am going to be wearing this Autumn. Have u spotted the Star Wars legging. 😱😱  I am sooooo getting these. I am beyond excited for the new film. R u??

What do u think u guys will be wearing this Autumn?  

 

Movies 🎥🎬

I am so excited to see these movies below that are coming out in the Autumn.

The first one I am looking forward to is The Scorch Trials, the second movie in the Maze Runner trilogy. I loved the first film and I think this is going to be even better!!   

“Goosebumps” is a movie with the funny Jack Black starring which is based on a series of books by the author R.L Stein. They were children’s horror books in the 80’s. My Dad loved them and still has them somewhere !!  This film which is out in October is based on these books but in this story this boy moves to this neighbour and moves next door to the author R.L Stein himself. The boy unintentionally unlocks the monsters and ghosts etc. that are in the author’s manuscripts. It sounds like so much fun and perfect for Halloween !! 🎃

The Good Dinosaur will be Pixar’s latest release and looks amazing !! The artwork is stunning and I am looking forward to watching it with my brother who loves Dinosaurs but missed out on seeing the best film ever …Jurassic World because it was just a bit too scary for him!!

And last but not least the final instalment of the Hunger Games Trilogy. It’s been a long time coming and I am really looking forward to it!

What r u all looking forward to seeing the most at the cinema this autumn?

 

TV!!

My family and I are HUGE superhero fans and I am sooooo excited about the upcoming shows!

IMG_1942

that start or continue this Autumn. Who wouldn’t be excited to see Supergirl?!  Have u guys seen the trailers. I absolutely love the way they will be portraying her and I am sure the show will be a hit. Of course The Flash season 1 ended with a stormer of a finale which leads onto the Legends of tomorrow show which the Flash episode showed how that team was created. I love how DC are doing the same as Marvel with all the stories weaving together across the DC universe, which is the way it should be.  Probably what I love more is that when we are watching the shows as a family my Dad tells us all the back history and explains who they are as he got and has read the comics. I have been reading over the Summer the Flash archives so I am quite the expert now!! 😜😜   

And lastly the most amazing comedy show since Modern Family, The Goldbergs are returning for season 3. I can’t wait to see what they get up to next. All I know is that I am going to have to listen to even more 80’s music in the house. Pretty cool really !!

 

Books !!

After all these films and programmes, I don’t know where I will find the time to read but I will!!

Here’s a couple of books I am really looking forward to reading:

IMG_1941

I don’t care how old you are, any David Walliams book is worth a read especially if you are a fan of Roald Dahl books. He is just such a funny writer, easy to read and the great thing is that even if I am getting a bit too old for it now, I can read he book to my brother which I love doing. Family is what it’s all about isn’t it and sharing special moments!!

 

Halloween.

The absolute best bit about Autumn is Halloween !! 🎃👻

IMG_1940

My family go crazy for Halloween. In the UK it didn’t use to be a massive deal but over the years it has got bigger and bigger, not quite to American standards but getting there !!  Where I live, most of the houses are decorated and we all go trick or treating, pretty much what like u see in the movies. My Mum usually throws a party for friends and family before we go out, so so much fun !!  My family come over from Glasgow and we all go out together. Most of my friends all live in the same estate as me so we bump into everyone from school. I just love it and then the sweetie fest afterwards. Aargh !! Hurry up October!! 😜😜😜

What are your Halloween plans this year? Does your family have any traditions? And have u decided to dress up this year? Would love to hear from you guys!

 

There is so so much more I would like to share with you but I think this is enough for now. Will do Halloween DIYs, makeovers, games etc. nearer the time, so so looking forward to that.

Thanks again Em & M for allowing my rambling thoughts into your amazing blog. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it

Bye,

Arianna Betty
