I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Narnia

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Directed by Andrew Adamson. From the book by C.S. Lewis. Starring Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Mosely, Anna Popplewell. Tilda Swinton, James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent; voices by Liam Neeson, Ray Winstone, Dawn French & Rupert Everett. The white witch did have cool hair!

This is a fantastic film for children and my kids loved it and kept them amused for the whole 3 hours! (they are 7 and 10) I have to admit, I did have higher expectations of it; so don’t go to the cinema expecting it to be a film for adults who remember the book, that children will like as well. It’s more like the other way round. The other thing, is, we went to see it at the end of the Christmas holidays and I’d just had a Lord of the Rings dvd marathon, and the special effects were no where near as good as those films, so avoid them before you go as it might spoil it!

The thing that this film got totally right was the casting. The children were excellent (a vast improvement on the annoying Lucy in the televsion series!) There were no winces at all (like you get at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone) when the acting isn’t up to scratch. I hope this brings them many roles in the future.

The drama and action are intense, but not too scary for children. The scene with Aslan sacrificed is very emotional, so my advice if your kids don’t know the story, is tell them in advance what will happen; and then what happens afterwards, so hopefully they won’t be too upset.

The CGI of Aslan was just right for his character; as it was also for the beavers and other creatures.

I’d definitely recommend seeing it.

Facial piercings
Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
