FILM REVIEW: All About Eve

  (Or Forty-Six Thoughts I Had Whilst Watching My First Black and White Movie for Fun and Not My Education)   **Spoilers ahead** 1. I’m so cultured to be watching this. Go me. 2. So, it starts with this awards ceremony, where a young, blonde actress called Eve is accepting an award, but it lowkey…

And I’m BACK!

Hello! Have you missed me? I’ve certainly missed me, and by that, I mean writing. I took a break from my blog because I felt that I was just churning out simple, brutally easy make-up reviews that were bland and boring. Writing for thepoppyraptor was starting to become a chore, and I really felt like…

#BowieBookClub

As you may or may not know, I’m a fairly big fan of David Bowie (I have a tattoo of the ‘Bowie’ lightning bolt on my forearm) and I work in a book shop, so when I came across the hashtag #BowieBookClub on Twitter at the start of this week, I was automatically intrigued. It…

Stranger Things Review & other Netflix Spookies

Eeeek, I missed 5 days of Blogtober, sorry guys! I thought it was only going to be 2 days whilst I was visiting friends for the weekend, that’ll teach me to be more organised in future! This post is for other people like me that tend to avoid bandwagons when they come along. Whilst I…

#13 – LUSH Seasonal Products Mini Haul & First Impressions

I told myself that I was going to be restrained when it came to Lush Christmas/Hallowe’en products this year…but we all know I was never likely to stick to that! Their seasonal range has been out since the 6th October in stores, and less than a week later I have a pretty good haul going…
