My Room Tour: Bringing Nature Inside

Since stores have launched their spring and summer collections I've found it very difficult not to impulse buy everything. For someone who wears all black, my dream house - and current bedroom - is very much bohemian and nature inspired (with a few discreet Halloween decorations out all year because this is me after all).… Continue reading My Room Tour: Bringing Nature Inside

What I Thought of: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, tells of Ted Bundy's crimes from the perspective of his girlfriend, Liz (Lisa Collins) as she struggles to come to terms with and believe what he's done. I was cautious about this movie, as interested as I am in true crime stories, I worry that films like this, which… Continue reading What I Thought of: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

What I thought of: Detective Pikachu

I was the biggest Pokemon fan as a child, so when I saw the first trailer for Detective Pikachu I knew I'd have to see it. Detective Pikachu chronicles Tim Goodman's adventure of finding out what really happen to his estranged father with the help his father's partner, Pikachu.

My Favourite 80s Movies

Although I'm a 90s kid, the 80s had the best music and movies going. From Live Aid in 1985 featuring the artists at the time who were and are legends today, to all these iconic movies, it was a great decade for pop culture. I wasn't sure what today's post would be so I ran… Continue reading My Favourite 80s Movies

Can women really wear what they want?

About two weeks ago a story about a young woman who was asked to either leave a flight or cover up went viral for very good reason. The 21-year old in question was flying from Birmingham to Tenerife in a plain black crop top, and high waisted orange pants. I think she looked great, definitely… Continue reading Can women really wear what they want?

What’s the deal with remakes?

For the past few years, nostalgia, remakes, and sequels have been spewed out all over Hollywood - with Disney particularly getting into remakes - from the failed Heathers reboot to several different Spidermans in less than 20 years, and even video games like Crash Bandicoot have gotten reboots, it feels like there isn't a whole not… Continue reading What’s the deal with remakes?

What I thought of The Umbrella Academy

I've been a massive fan of Gerard Way for most of my life, both as the frontman of my favourite band, and as a comic book writer. I've been waiting to see the Umbrella Academy on screen since I was at least 16, and it's finally here! I re-read Apocalypse Suit, and Dallas before the… Continue reading What I thought of The Umbrella Academy

From 0 to 100s of Views: How To Keep Readers Interested

*This is a sponsored post* I've spoken about my interests, experiences, and opinions on my blog, but never about blogging itself - until now. Last May I decided to take blogging more seriously, having set this blog up in 2015 it was stagnant on 50 followers until the summer of 2018. Once I worked on… Continue reading From 0 to 100s of Views: How To Keep Readers Interested

Reviewing Childhood: Crash Bandicoot

Crash N Sane trilogy was released in 2017 and was a remake of the first 3 crash games; Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped. I adored the crash cames as a kid. I hope they eventually re-release Twinsanity, and Wrath of Cortex which was my favourite. I have clear memories of playing the first… Continue reading Reviewing Childhood: Crash Bandicoot
