Hai baes! Laura here. If you don’t know my face, you should buy a copy of the latest GF - the one with Josh Hutcherson
looking rather dishy on the cover - or follow GF’s Insta
(or MY INSTA @gf_lc
for that matter!!).
Obviously I am extremely stoked to be coming to you live from my IRL job at GFHQ, where my duties include listening to 1D
’s new album Four
, chatting to famous people, and writing blogs like this one. Fun! I may have only been here for a few months, but I’ve already gotten to do all the awesome things. Case in point: last month, I went to Paris
. YES, PARIS!!! Just look at this photographic evidence:
It was kind of a whirlwind trip – two and a half days on French soil in fact – so I was really sympathizing with Kim K on the jet-set/jet-lag front. But, being in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I did not let my heavy eyelids stop me from getting my tourist on. I just looked like a zombie while I did it.
I flew over with the total gems from Ubisoft
coz they were giving me a first squiz at their game Just Dance 2015
. I was the only person from Australia to attend the event, and that had me feeling very #blessed. Plus, my travelling buddy from Ubisoft was a French expat, which also had me feeling #blessed when I was overtired and needed to order all the caffeinated beverages. THANK YOU FLORIAN, YOU LIFESAVER.
Anyway, do you know how they actually make a video game? It’s actually crazy technical. In Just Dance
, there are characters on-screen whose dance moves you follow (spoiler alert: I am horrendous at following dance moves on screen). Dancers have to bust it in front of a green screen, and then they get implanted (not the technical term) into the game. We all got to have a turn, but these guys were ***FLAWLESS.
The music in the game is super fun too, and Becky G
’s Built For This
is still on repeat in my head. Not necessarily a bad thing, but very distracting when you’re trying to buy extremely important French pharmacy beauty prods. Do you know about them? If you don’t, I am very happy to impart my knowledge. Yes, technically I’m the Features & Entertainment Editor, but I am not-so-secretly a beauty fangirl and product junkie.
Au revior, dancing queens!
LCx p.s. Just Dance 2015 is out now and you can (and should) buy it right here.
