Paul

The alien comedy drama starring and written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. 2 English guys travelling in a big campervan (RV) across America seeing the alien sights.

If you’re a fan of their cult series Spaced (currently being repeated on Dave), then you will love this film. It was a real hark back to those good old days! Loads of references and quotes to classic films – Jaws, Star wars and Indiana Jones; so with my husband telling us every time these cropped up, and the rest of us shouting “We’ve been there!” at occasional moments; we were’t the quietest of audiences! We drove the Extraterrestrial Highway 2 years ago and stopped for lunch at the Little A’le’ inn in Rachel, Nevada where they actually filmed that scene in the film. We never saw The Black Mail Box though.

(Deviation: If you’re ever at Las Vegas and deciding which way to get to Yosemite or San Francisco; take the route through Death Valley. There is so much more to see (though it may not feel like it at the time) than the ET route. Hours and hours and hours of nothing but a straight road ahead and views of rocks. Though we did have to slow down for a goat once.)

Anyway, the film was fantastic. We laughed all the way through and the kids had tears in their eyes at the sad bit. The character of Paul was genius, right from the blinking cute eyes, to the rudeness and mooning to his acts of kindness. I loved him! There were even unexpected twists to the plot.

Highly recommended film. Worth getting the dvd.

Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
Is it time to start making an effort?

Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
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….
