Strictly Saturdays: The One at the Movies

It’s that time of year again – get out your spray cans, fish out the rhinestones and sequins I know you have stashed away, and grab the wineglasses – Strictly Come Dancing is back! Yep, you read that right, the nation’s favourite Saturday night show is back on TV. And while last night was really good, I do think Strictly makes a Saturday night, and Saturday nights are made for Strictly.

This year, I happen to be living with a good friend who is also a big Strictly fan and fellow blogger. This means only one thing – doubled-up live-blogging… because bitching comments and shameless perving shouldn’t just be reserved for our living room, it should be shared with the…masses?

Here’s how it works:
Each week myself and Emma will be bringing you a tag-team live-blog of Strictly Come Dancing. We will be alternating whose blog it is posted on so if you want to keep up-to-date with our clearly deeply insightful commentaries, then you should make sure you’re following both of our blogs.

Last week, the pressure was turned up and we lost our first dancer, Melvin, The circumstances under which he went were nothing short of ridiculous, and it is safe to say that Anastasia is going to be in for a tough time over the next few weeks! Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday: All About the Villains

tttToday is the start of a week off from work. Today is the day that my parents go away on their (sort of) spontaneous cruise. Today is the day that Emma’s carpet arrives and work on her room begins to take shape. I’ve made today sound a lot more dramatic than it really it, if I’m honest! It must be the over-dramatic villainy in the air.

For all you lovely people who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved. click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish team together to produce a book related topic each week, and you simply list the top ten of that topic. Easy, even when you have work and relocation activities all day! Continue reading

Tag: Films, Films Films

I love a good book. I love imagining stories, and worlds, and characters. But sometimes, it is nice to see other people’s imaginings, and to immerse yourself in a visual world, and that is wear film comes into its own. Everyone loves a good movie, so I thought I would take a small break from the book blogging and do a film tag that I found here. Continue reading

The 140 Character Film Review – Marvel Mayhem

Jade and I are officially mid-Marvel binge. For those of you who live under rocks and in caves The Avengers (2): Age of Ultron is out on May 1st. I am super-duper, over-the-top, cannot wait, oh my gosh excited. To prepare, I decided I wanted to watch all the of the Marvel cinematic universe releases (and of course make sure I am up to date with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) prior to its release. Jade hasn’t yet seen all of the films (a cinematic travesty) and wanted to re-watch the ones she had seen, so here we now are.marvel_cinematic_universe_facebook_cover_by_andrewmjbaker-d7zjept

Happy Birthday Jade!

This week has been full of firsts and lasts, and has revitalised us in time for the Christmas week. It’s Jade’s 23rd Birthday today – Happy Birthday. I’d say have a great day, but you’ve spent the weekend with me, so I know it’s been awesome. It’s really capped off an interesting week, and has led us into a bizarre one with a spring in our step.

The 140 character film review – The good and the bad

In our free time at school, we tend to fill our time reading, writing our journals, and attempting to stay awake in new and inventive ways. TV shows take up more of our watching time after school and at the weekends, but we are gearing up for a Christmas movie watching week starting tomorrow, so I thought I would make sure I reviewed the films we have seen in the past couple of weeks. Continue reading

The 140 Character Film Review – Travels Galore

There were too many films to review on one blog post, so I decided to separate the films between two posts. Sorry guys! We have watched quite a few more films than I had realised over the past 2 months (ahh, 2 months already) in addition to all the TV episodes we watched. I’m not remotely sorry, the past 2 months have been awesome. Continue reading
