I Capture The Castle

Starring Bill Nighy, Romola Garai, Rose Byrne, Henry Thomas, Marc Blucas, Tara Fitzgerald. Directed by Tim Fywell. From the novel by Dodi Smith.
I tore out a review from some magazine ages and ages ago for I Capture The Castle to remind me to get it to watch, but I never got round to renting the dvd, so I was very pleased to see it on telly a few days ago. It was rated a PG; it sounded like a nice fairytale type story and the book was written by the author of 101 Dalmations, so I watched it with my kids who are 6 and 9. It wasn’t really a kids film at all though. Eg: “Mummy, why did she take her clothes off and run around in the rain?” And frankly, they were a bit bored by it really. But I certainly enjoyed it.
It is about two daughters of a struggling author renting a beautiful castle to live in, but have no money. Set in the 1930s, they of course aim to marry rich guys. However they’ve been cut off from the real world and their experience of men is limited, until 2 Americans come along.
It’s a bit of a coming-of-age story really, with innocent discussions about kissing and falling in love. All very nice, but didn’t leave me feeling particularly moved at all.

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
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…..
