Roadtrip, New Sofa's and a 21st! - Spring Break (Part 2)

Image
With such a busy week of Spring Break I had to split the vlog in two! A roadtrip, new sofa's and my cousin 21st, ending with a meal at Pizza Express and a scary drive home. 
Click here to watch the vlog or see below.  If you haven't seen last week's post, click here to read that first because I split the week in two! On Wednesday, my little sister and I decided to have a little road trip down to my oldest sister's house. We spent a couple days with my niece and nephew before heading back North. 
I never thought I would say it but I absolutely love driving now. I used to hate and I was so scared for every lesson. My last driving teacher was amazing and put me at total ease and now I love the freedom it gives me. The drive down went perfectly and while the drive back wasn't quite as smooth, it was still a great experience.  On Friday, I headed to see a friend and colleague through SheerSense, Suzanne. She recently gave birth to a precious little boy and I was so exc…

Forever My Girl (Review)

Image
Forever My Girl is not my normal film review type but I just had to share this film because it is perfect in every way. Click here to watch the trailer or see below. 
When the films open with a wedding scene, you just know it isn't going to go to plan and for Josie, her heartbreak starts when she is left at the altar by her fiancĂ© Liam. Eight years later, Liam is a successful country singer and Josie is a successful florist. When troubled Liam watches the TV, he discovers his best friend has died and returns to his home time for the first time in years. Both their lives get flipped upside down. I'm a true romantic and a country song lover so when I saw the trailer and realised that this film was literally all about those two themes, I had to watch it. Honestly, it's utter perfection. I cried so many sad tears, yet so many happy tears. It combined so many emotions but the whole film was just beautiful.  I love Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe as actor's so seeing the chemist…

Ready Player One (Review)

Image
With miserable weather during my spring break, mum suggested going to see something at the cinema. While there wasn't anything I felt I HAD to see, Ready Player One was defintely on my list. Click here to watch the trailer or see below. 
As I wasn't obsessed with seeing this film, while I thought it looked good, I didn't have ridiculously high expectations. I think I can safely say, we all came out having absolutely loved the whole film, the story and the characters. It really blew the trailer out of the water. I thought that they really carefully selected a range of scenes for the trailer which also left a lot of surprise scenes for the movie.  The story centres around a teenage boy who has met a number of friends inside a world created for gamers but has become a type of reality. When he's the first to win part 1 of the competition, he becomes hunted by a wealthy man who wants the prize for himself. Despite the warnings, he falls in love with a character inside the …

Baking, Hair Trials and Shopping! - Spring Break (Part 1)

Image
The last two weeks of placement were crazy busy so I didn't record much but I did want to share some happy memories before I left for Spring Break! I started the week at the cinema, having hair trials and shopping! 
Click here for the vlog or watch below.  If you saw last week's post you'll have seen a brief run through of the past couple of weeks and how I visited my sister and her family. I also had my first night shift but because the clips were so short I thought I would just add them to this week's vlog instead. 
One of my flatmates just turned 19 so we celebrated her birthday a little late. Sam blew up balloons and turned them into a cute banner while I made a dreamy chocolate caterpillar cake. It was all so much fun and amazingly, it all went perfectly smoothly.   We tried to convince Vicki we were out but my big plans for a surprise didn't quite turn out so she came before everyone else had arrived in the end. Nevertheless, it was still a fun night followe…

Santa Clarita Diet - Season 2 (Review)

Image
Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix original series that is completely unlike anything out there before. After watching the first with my old flatmate, we've both been excitedly counting down the days until they released the second series. 
Click here to watch the trailer or see below.  When I first saw the trailer for this show last year, I was excited to see Drew Barrymore in a new project but also thought it looked absolutely crap. I never intended to watch more than the first few minutes but it's oddly addictive and enjoyable. Once I started watching, I couldn't stop and I binge watched both the first and the second series within days.  The plot is utterly ridiculous. A *no spoiler* causes Drew's character to die and come back to life as a decaying body that relies on human bodies as a food to survive. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how the story progressed in this second series. The reasoning behind the unusual condition is revealed and we learn more about th…
