DUNKIRK

Last Friday I went to see Dunkirk in IMAX. What with Christopher Nolan directing and Hans Zimmer doing the music, I couldn’t not see it and I knew it was a movie that only a huge cinema screen would do justice. I agree with some people that it was great film. I don’t however, agree…

Alice’s Adventures Underground

I know I haven’t posted in a while but work has been manic! Now it’s settling down (a little) I just couldn’t not tell you about what I got up to this weekend. A very close friend of mine booked tickets for something way in advance and only revealed to me a couple of weeks…

Why you should watch: The Man in the High Castle

Season 2 is now available on Amazon. I was so hooked that I managed to finish the whole series over one weekend and now I have to wait another year for the next. The second series was just as jam-packed as the first and the last episode left us on some frustratingly good cliff hangers-…

Prague, December 2016

What you’ll find below- a series of shots randomly organised that I took on my trip to Prague at the beginning of December! We stayed for four nights, a little bit longer than most people choose to stay there for – but we wanted to see and do as much as possible, without rushing around and being…

Port de Soller, Mallorca

At the beginning of July I spent eight wonderful days in a stunning hideaway known as Port de Soller off the coast of Mallorca.  With a population of 12,000 it is the port of a town slightly further in land called Soller that is also formed along with the village of Fornalutx and the hamlet…

Aidan Turner – I mean ‘Poldark’ : Series 2 Episode 1

*NO SPOILERS* Despite the title ^ I didn’t JUST watch this for a much-anticipated weekly dose of Aidan Turner, I do love the programme…. and him – so I’d say the balance is round about 50/50 and I say that with zero shame. What with Sky, Netflix and Amazon Video at my disposal these days,…

Holi Festival of Colours London 2016

A Brit take on the famous Hindu festival held in India every year, this was a celebration of music, getting merry with friends and getting very very VERY messy. The original festival celebrates the start of Spring.  The tradition of throwing colour comes from the Hindu god Vishnu’s reincarnation Lord Krishna who enjoyed pranking the village…

REVIEW: HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD

** NO SPOILERS ** Even though it’s being reviewed the world over right now, I had to write a post on HP and the Cursed Child, the sequel to my favourite ever book series.  I couldn’t not!  I promise I’ll try my absolute best not to be biased but as I am a HUGE Harry Potter…

Keep Calm and Save Money: The Basic Guidelines…

Saving can be a b***h sometimes.  Especially when you’ve finally got yourself a full time job and you’ve never had that much money in your account before.  Like so many, after pay day I used to find myself trying to suppress the urge to go on some insane shopping spree or book myself a holiday…

Review: Outcast (Pilot)

From the creators of The Walking Dead and based on Kirkman’s comic book series, Outcast gives us a new style of horror for us to sink our teeth into. Naturally, fans of TWD are going to compare this to their favourite phenomenally successful tv show and for that reason alone it means that viewers will…

Time to reflect 

A lot can happen in a year. Yesterday I had a moment of about ten seconds in which everything I’d done in the past year flew through my mind . I was in my Bums & Tums class soldiering through the ridiculous number of lunges she was making us do. My legs were on the…
