One for all and all for one, muskehounds are always ready…

I can’t get the theme tune to Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds out of my head now – and that rather dates my childhood doesn’t it. Most of you won’t know what I’m going on about. Anyway, this is my review of the latest The Three Musketeers film…

I absolutely loved it! This will no doubt be my favourite film of 2012 (until The Hobbit right at the end.) If you like Pirates of the Caribbean, then you’ll probably like this too as I’m pretty sure it was heavily influenced by it. It’s a fast-paced action adventure with a smattering of humour and romance thrown in; not to mention fabulous costumes. I want to own every single one of Milla Jovovich – playing Milady – ‘s costumes. They are amazing and Milla did what she does best, adding a touch of glamour and a heavy dose of kick-ass-ness. The three musketeers were rather enjoyable to look at too!

Apart from D’Artagnan and Milady, the cast was largely British with many familiar faces including James Corden playing a hard-done-by servant and Orlando Bloom as the Duke of Buckingham. The sets were lavish, the special effects were outlandish and the fight scenes were Pirates of the Caribbean-ish. With airships and clockwork gadgets, it was quite steampunk too. I can’t wait to watch it again!

Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
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…..
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….
