I have finally finished my Casino Royale behind the scenes edit!! I had a few requests for bts's on the Daniel Craig films from my Instagram family, so here it is!! The footage used is from the short documentary 'James Bond For real' which came out with the film.
I hope you enjoy this edit and i will be back with some more posts very soon. I also wanted to mention i will be doing some first impressions on some items and a few bond on a budget posts.
hope you all have a great rest of week,
Hello everyone, today i'm bringing you another video! You may notice that iv'e been loving to post videos recently, this is because I really wanted to try out a different form of media, as well as the fact it gives me more freedom as with exams I am short on time to start doing the detailed posts I wanted to. I hope you enjoy the videos and I fully realise it's not super high - tech stuff. All the videos are vlog style as they give you guys a look into behind the scenes of The Bond Bible, therefor they aren't set up with lighting and whatnot. Everything is shot on the standard camera on an Iphone 6s, and edited in Imovies.
Here's the room tour of my James Bond collection, if you guys want a full room tour of everything else just tell me in the comments.
Thanks for watching, hope you all have a good week.
See you soon
I have had a few requests to do a post giving tips on how to start a social media page/fanpage, a website or blog. I am no expert on these things so don't take what I say as gospel, I have created this list to help guide people and hopefully give a few tips to help them along the way. The list is purely made up of my personal opinion and in no way am I saying that this is the right way of going about creating a fanpage or blog.
I hope you all enjoy the video and gain a little from it.
If anyone has any suggestions for more videos please leave a comment.
I'm back for a quick post, I will be back this summer after exams to start posting regularly again, but for now here's a little something.
After spending some time on YouTube looking at Bond videos and whatnot I found an amazing video which I wanted to share with you all. This beautifully edited video is a mixture of snippets from all three Daniel Craig movies featuring a sneak peak of Spectre. The video itself features some of my favourite Bond moments perfectly timed to hit the beats of music which plays alongside the edit. the beautifully sculpted clips and gorgeous outro graphics make this video great. For me personally, this defines the amazing details of Bond.
After watching this video I contacted it's creator and asked if i could post about it, after a lovely response I am able to share this with you.
Thank you so much to Peter Murnieks for letting me share this video. I hope you all enjoy it and love every second of it as much as I did.
Hello, i am finally back. Just letting you know there has and will be a lack of posts as my GCSE exams are fast approaching and unfortunately Bond is not a priority. i will be posting any cool videos i see every so often and if i can post i will, i miss blogging and cant wait to get back to it after my exams are done. In the summer i will be jet setting on two holidays and may post about those as i may be going to Montenegro, where some of casino royale took place.
Anyway lets jump straight in to the post!!
Vespers Lynd is the ultimate bond girl in my eyes. her story is tragic but the portrayal of her in Casino royale (2006) by Eva Green is mesmerising. Throughout the film Vesper wears an Algerian love knot necklace which has relevance to the plot, which we also see at the end of Quantum of Solace. The necklace in question is a beautiful piece by Sophie Harley London. The piece is crafted out of gold and silver with intricate details and a luxury finish. However, it also has a luxury price tag of £2,280. I would definitely indulge in this necklace if i had the funds. For anyone who is looking for a less pricey alternative that wont break the bank I've got just the thing.
Here is the original Sophie Harley necklace:
Now here is the alternative:
This is Kikiburrabeads' Vesper Algerian Love Knot, which you can purchase on Etsy (click on the picture to go to her page.) The item i shipped from Australia and it took about 10 days to reach me, the shipping is £3.05 to the UK and varies depending on where you live. when my necklace arrived it was well packaged in bubble wrap and a gift bag. The necklace comes in three lengths ( I got the shortest as that is the same length to the original.) The owner of the shop is lovely and kept me up to date with the shipping and gave me any info i needed. To finish it off the necklace is only £15.27 + shipping so its an absolute bargain. The knot is a little smaller than the original, but this doesn't bother me as for the quality and price it's perfect.
Hope you enjoyed this review and hopefully you will now grab yourselves a beautiful Vesper Love Knot necklace whether you splash out on the original or grab the amazing Kikiburrabeads version.
Thanks for reading
In 1995 the partnership between Omega and Bond started with the prodcution of Goldeneye, the first film to star the new bond, Pierce Brosnan. A new watch for a new Bond, plus a new excititng partnership.
The Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega, founded in 1903 is the pinicle of luxury. Being one of the top luxury watchmakers in the world explains why such a legendary partnership has been formed.
Throughout the years of James Bond (before the Omega partnership) Bond wears a Rolex countless times. However the change of Bond evoked a change of luxury timepiece to adorne the wrist of 'the world's most beloved spy.' Rolex, being at top runner in luxury watch markets would seem like a good choice for Bond, which it was however, Lindy Hemming - a costume designer on many Bond films stated, “I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear the Seamaster with the blue dial.”
The original Omega Seamaster with the blue dial from Goldeneye, 1995
As well as the watches Bond wears in each film Omgea have also come out with Limited edition watches in recent years for example for Casino Royale, Skyfall and the 50th Anniversary. Although these watches are hard to find you can finds loads of options and models on www.watchfinder.co.uk were you can buy omega and other brands pre-owned.
In the future I would love to own my own Omega James Bond limited edition model, it would be a lovely edition to my collection and would be a treat for any Bond fan!
I hope you enjoyed this post and found out some more information on Omega Watches. If anyone would like a post on a particular watch please comment below.
If anyone also wants any extra information feel free to also comment below.
I would highly recomend watchfinder.co.uk to find a luxury watch pre-owned. They have a beautiful selection of Omega, and other brands as well as limited edition pieces. They also give you the option of part exchanging your watch which is a really good feature. I hope that in years to come I will be buying my first limited edition Omega watch, which i will probably buy from Watcherfinder because of its great buying options and the recomendations i have recieved from friends.
See you guys soon, I will be back at it this year with the blog posts!!
The story of James Bond Is an important one, it's one of the reasons that the films have stayed with us this long. The 50th anniversary hit us 4 years ago, It gave us Skyfall and many special perks. It also gave us a greatly put-together documentary named 'Everything Or Nothing' The documentary spends time exploring the life of Fleming, the man who brought us Bond. The detail provided on Fleming is much needed it goes back to the books and the process of Flemings arrival into the spy novel genre. The documentary looks at the films production and goes into great detail about the many challenges Eon Productions had to overcome throughout the life of Bond. It shows the intense regime of Bond and how the actors felt about playing the character from the novella.
The Documentary is amazingly put together and a joy. The beginning of it is truly delightful as it is through to the end.
I would say it is worth a watch completely.
You can buy this on iTunes or from amazon. My version is on iTunes as it means I can access it anywhere.
Hi everyone, today i am going to be doing a post on a new book i have. This book has sat in my room for a while however, i haven't picked it up to thoroughly read through it until recently. The book is basically fact files on all the Bond Girls and runs through each of the films up until Quatum of Solcae.
For each film there is a front page, giving readers the outlin plot of the film, a selected quote to do with the bond girls and a picture. I actaully really like the desgin of this book as each pages desin mimics the films design. As well as this the photos are interesting and good quality. After this theres a few pages on the Bond girls in the film, (one page per Bond girl.) This book is the ultimate bond girl encyclopidia, giving you all the information one would need. This book would make a great christmas gift for any Bond fan.
You can purchase the book from amazon on the UK and US and in waterstones.
Hope you enjoy this short review,
Hey Everyone, hope your Monday hasn't been to horrible, and your not missing the weekend too much!!
