Bend it like Beckham

The daughter of orthodox Sikh rebels against her parents’ traditionalism by running off to Germany with a football team

Comedy/drama, directed by Gurinder Chadha
Starring Parminder K Nagra, Keira Knightley

I was a little late on the bandwagon to watch this film, but having heard the rave reviews I sat and watched it on Sky last night. I did enjoy this film – but not as much as I expected to. I suppose it didn’t have the crossover appeal to adults that many teenage films do have. The fantastically funny acting by Juliet Stevenson as Jules’s Mum, outshone the rest of the cast. The ‘boy comes between friends’ story was a bit boring, and they should have taken the time to find a more interesting sub-plot. And I’m afraid to say, the boy just wasn’t good-looking enough!
I have little knowledge of Indian culture in England, but from where I stand the story involving the main character and the conflict involving her football interest and her family worked well. Overall it was a light-hearted, entertaining film – one for the girls’ sleepovers.

Entertainment, Films,

They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
