Throwback Thursday – Ocean’s 11 (2001)

 I can’t believe this film is this old. I also can’t believe that George Clooney looks so much better now than he did 18 years ago. Seriously, what is going on with that man? But, there we are. And I remember watching this film for the first time. It blew my mind. The twist worked […]

Book Review – What Red Was by Rosie Price

 I didn’t know anything about this book before my friend sent me a copy. She works for Vintage publishing and is always trying to give me cheap books from work. I know I know. First world problems. So, when I asked for a copy of Machines Like Me I wasn’t expecting a whole package of fun […]

Tuesday Review – Hustle (2019)

 One of the films that I watched for my Throwback Thirty was the Michael Caine and Steve Martin comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It wasn’t the worst film that I watched last year but it didn’t really make an impact. So, the news that it was being remade with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson didn’t necessarily leave […]

Creatively Content: Week 4 #cs_warmup

  It’s been a super hot week in the UK. I’ve been so uncomfortably warm in the office. So, when this week’s Creatively Squared challenge was #cs_warmup it seemed like the perfect chance to take advantage of the sun. Now, I’m not exactly a lover of Summer. I’m super pale and get really uncomfortable sitting […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? We’re in the middle of a bank holiday weekend and it’s going great so far. I’ve had a great time but this is my last bank holiday this year. As my job gets super busy in August, we don’t get the August bank holiday off. […]

FBF – A Night at the Roxbury (1998)

 So, you may have noticed that this week’s Throwback Thursday post is actually a day late. And, if I’m honest, I nearly didn’t write it at all. I ended up meeting a friend yesterday so couldn’t get time to post. And today? Well, I just couldn’t be bothered. I watched the film earlier in the […]

Book Review – Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan

 One of my best friends works for Vintage books so she is constantly offering to pick up cheap books for me. I know I know. I’m making it sound like a bad thing when it’s not. The only problem is that I never remember to ask her. I buy the book myself and then have […]

Tuesday Review – Wine Country (2019)

 I didn’t get a chance to watch a new cinema release this week so I turned to Netflix. I’ve not really been keeping up with Netflix original films of late. I watched Rebel Wilson’s Isn’t It Romantic one boring bank holiday weekend. It was almost as dire as I’d expected but I guess it wasn’t all […]

Creatively Content: Week 4 #cs_thelifeofpages

You know I love books. I’ve been photographing books since 2014. It’s my weird little hobby. It gives me something to do with my spare time at least. So, when this week’s Creatively Squared challenge was #cs_thelifeofpages I was beyond pleased. But then I decided I couldn’t spend the week just doing what I normally […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? Today has been a weird day. For almost a year I’ve been suffering from alopecia and it’s slowly been getting worse over the past few months. So, today I finally bit the bullet and bought a wig. I was annoyingly terrified before I went. I […]

TBT – The Green Lantern (2011)

 On Tuesday I reviewed Shazam! a DC film starring Mark Strong. So, what film could I possibly watch for this Throwback Thursday post? How about a DC film starring Mark Strong? Especially as it’s considered to be one of the worst superhero movies of all time. It even has a lower rating than X-Men Origins. Of course, they […]

Bookish Post – Oh Dany… Boy! (Spoilers)

So, you may have noticed that this isn’t a book review. And that’s only partly because I haven’t quite finished Machines Like Me yet. I say partly because I’m trying to convince myself that I haven’t been rubbish at reading this week. That’s not the reason. The real reason is that I needed to talk about this […]

Tuesday Review – Shazam! (2019)

 I’ve not had the best history with DC films. I loved Wonder Woman but part of me suspects that I just got caught up in all the celebration. I mean, she was the first female superhero to get her own film. I was already going in feeling excited. I haven’t seen Aquaman yet and I’ve only made it halfway […]

Creatively Content: Week 4 #cs_mymomentwithflowers

 So, if you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I got a bit mopey this weekend. I try not to focus on numbers and engagement but sometimes it gets to me. It came straight off the back of a person with about 10 times the followers I have moaning about how bad […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? Today, I had a massive panic that I’d accidentally put my phone in the washing machine. I knew I probably hadn’t because even I’m not that stupid but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So, my mind immediately starts conjuring up images of it being in […]

Throwback Thursday – Dumbo (1941)

 As I said in my review of Tim Burton’s Dumbo on Tuesday, I mentioned that it’s been a while since I last watched the animated version. It was definitely when I was a child because I didn’t feel weird about the crows. Something I didn’t bring up in my review. Not because I don’t think it’s […]

Book Review – The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

 My last read was one of the books I bought in my post-Endgame book trip. I had needed something to cheer me up and nothing cheers me up quite like looking at books. I’d been attracted to this cover for ages because I’m a sucker for anything yellow these days. But I had also been […]

Tuesday Review – Dumbo (2019)

 I definitely watched Dumbo when I was younger but I can’t say that it was ever one of my favourites. I don’t think I ever really rewatched it. Of course, I remember the adorable elephant because it’s the cutest creature to come out of any Disney film. I remember the clown scene, the song, and, obviously, […]

Creatively Content: Week 2 #cs_noteworthy

I stated this new series last month when I introduced you to my participation in the weekly Instagram challenges set by Creatively Squared. For those that missed it, I’ll just recap what the whole thing is about. Creatively Squared is a website that brings together content creators and brands. The platform has a database of different […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? What a week it’s been here on my blog. I have posted an absolutely unprecedented 7 times. I imagine you’re pretty sick of me by now. Especially as you won’t get a break until Friday. There’s just been an awful lot going on recently. I […]

Bonus Post – Mary Sue who? (Spoilers)

It’s nearly been a week since the last Game of Thrones episodes so it may seem like a stupid time to post a rant about it. However, there never seemed to be a decent time to do it. This week was all about Endgame. The only sensible time would have been Wednesday but I had a book review […]

Bookish Post – April Reading Wrap-Up

At the end of March I posted my first ever monthly wrap-up. It was mostly because I’d managed to read 8 books that month and felt that it needed recording somewhere. I haven’t done quite as well this month because I started my new job. For the first few weeks I wasn’t reading quite as […]

Small but epic moments in Endgame (Cautious spoiler warning)

Are you getting bored of these Endgame related posts yet? Don’t worry, we’re in the endgame now.  I’ve posted my almost impossible to write spoiler-free review on Tuesday and my spoiler-filled musings on Thursday, so what could possibly be left? Well, I wanted to do a quick shout-out to some of favourite small moments in this film. […]

Spoiler Filled Endgame Musings

On Tuesday I posted my spoiler free review of Avengers Endgame. I wanted to make sure that anyone silly enough to come to my blog before they watched the film wouldn’t see anything that ruined any aspect of that film for them. But, I also have a lot of feelings and ideas about it. So, just […]

Book Review – Campusland by Scott Johnson

 As you know, I’ve been trying to get my way through all of the NetGalley books I’ve had waiting on my shelf for months. I always feel really guilty when I go on a requesting binge and then buy a load of new books to read. Plus, I have my ratio to think about. I […]
