The Lion King

I recently bought myself an Eeyore stuffed toy from Disney. He’s really soft and super cuddly. He’s my sofa pal. I don’t have housemates or flatmates, I don’t have a partner to come home to, or a pet to cuddle up to on the couch. So I have Eeyore. I’ve seen things shared around online…

New Year’s Resolutions: Reviewed

This year, I had decided to set myself a resolution for the first time in years. Remarkably, I’ve achieved what I intended. For the first time ever (personally and globally perhaps?) I have stuck to a resolution. Insert shocked emoji here! I’m pretty sure whoever invented New Year’s Resolutions dreamed this day might come, but…

Man Up!

I try very hard, daily, not to be depressed about my sucky life. Single, not quite in the job I thought I’d be in, living in a house share, did I mention single? So today being payday, I thought I’d treat myself to the life I want. I slept in, I went shopping, I treated…

The Best Films of 2013

It may be January 16th today, but I am still reading the January issue of Empire, and therefore it doesn’t really feel like I’m up to date with films, so in my head, I’m right on time with a round up of 2013 blog! Amy wrote one of these a few weeks ago – you…

Stuck on Repeat: Revisited

You may or may not be aware, that for 4 years, I was the host of a radio show. It was called ‘Amy In The Studio’ (I think I must’ve been hungover the day I had to come up with the name). I had a small group of fans who tuned in every week. Fortunately,…

Holiday Time: Reading Edition

So myself and Ellen just got back from a 10 day break on the south coast of Spain. There are many types of holiday: sightseeing, hiking, camping, adventure… but the one we went on, was the lazing around doing very little except eating and sleeping holiday. We go on this holiday almost every year. We…

The Purge

Yesterday I went to see the new horror/thriller ‘The Purge’. From the same people who made ‘Insidious’ and ‘Sinister’, I was expecting something chilling and terrifying. I was let down in some ways, but the idea the film is based on fascinated me. This is a two-fold blog, a review and a “what if…” pondering….

2012 in review and what 2013 might bring

So 2012 has been and gone. This is the last blog I’ll post about 2012, I’ll stop looking back and look to the future instead. But I want to reflect on what I learnt in 2012, what I achieved, and what I missed. And while I’m here, I might as well tell you what I’m…

An Incredibly Disappointing Ending

I have recently felt¬†extremely¬†let down by the final pages of two different books. The first book was Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (Yes, the same story as the film with Julia Roberts in it). I loved it. It was so refreshing to read an autobiographical book that not only made me laugh, but it…

Skyfall: The Best Bond Film Yet?

The hype for the latest instalment of the Bond franchise has been beyond anything the series has seen before. Maybe it was the 4 year hiatus, or maybe it was the mild concern that the last film wasn’t exactly… great. Maybe everyone was just feeling extra patriotic after the Olympics. Who knows? But this Bond…
