Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

Theatre Review: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie #JamieLondon

    Last week, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a live screening of the west end show Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, streamed directly to my local cinema from the Apollo Theatre in London. A young woman who used to go to our dance school (Courtney Bowman) is performing in it, so a group of us went along to see her. I really loved it and wanted to share my thoughts as I feel this show deserves a lot more attention!   The Story Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is a musical based on the life of Jamie […]

Below is a list of my top ten Christmas film recommendations. I hope you enjoy. 1) Santa Claus (1985) The original Santa Claus movie starring David Huddleston, Judy […]

Thoughts on the casting of Hermione: Does the race of an actor really matter?

Thoughts on the casting of Hermione: Does the race of an actor really matter?

After today’s casting announcement for the ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ stage play, it seems that a lot of fans are up in arms about Hermione being played by black actress, Noma Dumezweni. I’ve been reading through a lot of the comments and it’s got me thinking about how much the race and general appearance of an actor matters when casting an iconic role like this. Firstly, let me start by saying that I’ve tried to consider opinions on both sides in this post and to keep my discussion of the subject respectful. As a white woman, I’m in no way […]


Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

Top Ten Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2016 (with trailers)

2016 looks like a fantastic year for films. Some of my favourite franchises are releasing sequels this year and I’m so excited to see them already. Although with a new baby, we’ll probably have to wait for them to come out on DVD. Here’s a list of the films I’m most anticipating for 2016: 1) X Men: Apocalypse, 19th May. “With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.” I’ve loved the new X Men films so far-the plots and casting have been spot on in my opinion. I’m a big fan […]

V is for Violet #AtoZChallenge

V is for Violet #AtoZChallenge

Today I’m continuing with the A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year I’m doing an A-Z of Colours. I’ll be doing a variety of posts, including haikus and poems, arts and crafts, fashion and beauty, recipes and more!     For the letter ‘V’ I have chosen the colour Violet. Violet is a bright, vivid shade similar to purple that takes its name from the violet flower. Unlike purple, violet is a true colour because it has its own wavelength on the spectrum of visible light, while purple is only a composite colour (made from mixing red and blue).
