Films watched in May

  1. Moana: I watched this with my boyfriend and we both absolutely loved it! It was such a good film and we were both howling with laughter! The songs were really catchy too! Personally I haven't been bothered about the new Disney films recently, but I think this one has bought the love back! Rating: ★★★★
  2. Alien: I watched the original 1979 Alien film with my boyfriend, because he was shocked that I hadn't seen it before. Like, ever! I actually really enjoyed it and for the time it was released it wasn't cheesy or with crappy effects. It was a genuinely good film! Rating: ★★★★★
  3. Alien: Covenant: One of the other reasons my boyf wanted me to watch the original Alien, was so that we could go and watch the new one in the cinema! We planned to watch all of the films over the weekend, but we only managed the first one before we went to the cinema to see Covenant. Apparently Covenant relates more to Prometheus, and although I did enjoy it, I felt that it wasn't as good as the original film. I can see why a lot of people disliked the sequels as the main plot can only really stay the same, so it kind of just repeats itself. Rating: ★★★★
  4. Tekken: As a kid I always loved playing Tekken with my dad. I picked this up recently and was really excited to see what it was like. All I can say is, it was, well, meh... It wasn't awful and I don't regret watching it, but there are some parts that just didn't work and one of the main problems I had with it (which I know cannot be helped) is that the actors just didn't look like the characters. I know that is a ridiculous problem to have with a film, but it did make a difference to me because I was so used to what the characters in the game looked like. So overall, even thought I didn't hate it, it just wasn't going to make it on to my favourite films list. Rating: ★★★
  5. Ichi the Killer: This one is a Japanese film. It used to be banned and although it is not as bad as some films I have seen, I can see why. It is gory (even though sometimes it isn't believable) and there are some quite controversial topics in it. The story is sometimes a little difficult to follow though, and some of the effects are just downright awful! It wasn't awful to watch, but some things just didn't make sense and I actually had to look up the meaning of the ending because to me it just did not make sense! It's quite a long film and I don't regret watching it, but I won't be watching it again. Rating: ★★
New Films Watched: 5/101

So those were all of the new films I watched in May! I'm really enjoying watching things I haven't seen before and I think at this rate I will complete my 101 in 1001 challenge pretty soon! Have you seen any of these films? What did you think of them? Let me know!

Until next time...

NOTW 27: Do you SEA my nails?!

This week, rather than having just one block colour on my nails I decided to add a glitter top coat to add a bit more to them! As it turns out both polishes I used had a sea themed name! Firstly I used Technic's South Pacific which is a really nice dusty blue-green colour. It applies really well and only takes 2 thick coats or 3 thin coats to become opaque (I used 2 on the pictures below!). The glitter I used is also by Technic and is the one I hold in the picture. It's their 'Mermaid' polish and I think it is absolutely beautiful! It has multiple sized blue hexagon glitters which change to silver and green in the light! I think it has a slightly blue tinted base as well but I'm not too sure! Either way I love the colour and think it looks amazing! It was slightly difficult to apply though as all the glitters came off in one place but it can be pretty easily spread out before the polish becomes too tacky to move them. Overall I think it is worth the time that you spend spreading out the glitters as it adds a really beautiful layer to the nails! I love both of these polishes and I think they're really great value!

Starting my Bullet Journal!

Since I started my 101 in 1001 at the beginning of this month (link here if you're interested) I wanted a way to track what I was doing and how many goals I had accomplished. I had seen loads of people creating bullet journals for their day-to-day lives and I thought it would be a brilliant idea to incorporate the goals into a bullet journal!

Mask Hurray!: Montagne Jeunesse 'Dragon Fruit Sauna' Self Heating Mask

I finally have another Mask Hurray post for you guys. It seems ages since I have done one of these and the reason is that the lighting just hasn't been good enough to take quality photos when I have been applying these masks! But hopefully we are back on track! This week I have tried out the Montagne Jeunesse Dragon Fruit Sauna Self Heating Mask. Carry on reading to see what I thought of it...

Product Empties #2

It has been a long time since I have done an empties post. It seems that I never finish things at a steady rate, I go through a massive dry spot and then finish things all in 1! Here are my recent empties and my thoughts on them!

101 in 1001

I am doing it. I am actually going to take part in 101 in 1001! This challenge TERRIFIES me, but I think it is also such a brilliant idea! For those who don't know, 101 in 1001 is a challenge where you write down 101 things/tasks that you would like to complete in 1001 days, which roughly works out to 2.75 years. You can then track it through your blog and see how you are getting on with your accomplishments! I'm hoping that this will help me become a little more happier in myself and with my life, because I have some goals to look forward to. So, lets get into my list!
