Public Desire Love

In my family, we love shoes, between my sister and I, we own over 70 pairs (oops), but my most reccent obsession is public desire shoes, the first time I saw them I was a bit like oh, didn't really think much on them but I kept seeing them and seeing them as primark and topshop etc have their own replicas and oh my gosh I have never loved a shoe more than my size 4 white kelis'. They are so comfy and utterly stunning but of course I had to go for the originals first and I'd defiantly be able to wear these for a night out without hanging on people saying my feet hurt, seriously reccomend. 😍😍😍

Be expecting a lot more from these on this blog,

Review: The Purge | Anarchy & Guardians of The Galaxy

We've established I go to the cinema a lot (oops), the two movies I've seen most reccently and will review for you are The Purge: Anarchy and Guardians of The Galaxy.

The Purge: Anarchy~
I was really actually quite nervous going to see this because I saw the first one when it came out just over a year ago and it genuinely made me scream, I'm a mess. If you don't know what any of the purge movies are about, one night every year for 12 hours, I think it's the 22nd of March??? In the not too distant future, like 2023, all crimes including murder become legal just for those 12 hours, and every other day of the year is allegedly crime free. So people go out and get revenge 'release the beast' and 'cleanse their souls' but it's really quite political about the founding fathers decreasing the population by killing off the poor etc but I won't get into that. I did quite enjoy this film but I didn't scream, it wasn't quite as jumpy as the first movie to be honest but I still had moments of watching behind my hands, so still scary. I have to say this was the first scary movie I'd seen which had a happy ending though, so that was quite a nice surprise in contrast to the first movie where all the main cast died??? All in all I enjoyed this film, probably wouldn't buy the DVD but May watch again if it ended on netflix. If you liked this movie, you'd probably like The Purge (but who watched the second one first???) or maybe Insideous or maybe even the Scream trilogy + 1 another scream film. 

Guardians of The Galaxy~
I was really really really excited to watch this I'm such a Marvel/DC fanatic with X Men being one of my all time favourite film series' (even if they did start again, BUT I don't care because I love everything about it, bring on X Men: Apocalypse). Back to Guardians of The Galaxy (oops sorry), I really didn't know what to expect and the only thing putting me off was the talking raccoon, Rocket, but I have to say the film was actually perfect. I honestly never thought I'd fall in love with a tree the way I did, especially when he was in the pot😍. This movie is probably the funniest movie Marvel have ever made and the funniest movie I've seen reccently (not hard in comparison to the purge or the fault in our stars etc). It's about 5 ~criminals~ (I use that term lightly), who come together and escape prison and try and sell this orb they have because star lord stole it at the beginning of the movie and find that it contains the power to destroy everything, standard. Out of all this they sort of make kind of an odd friendship when the orb is stolen, and end they wind up saving the galaxy hence the name. I really really loved this, and I can't wait for the DVD to come out which might be anywhere between Christmas and February, so not that longer wait. Deffinetely going to see the next one, I can't wait to see more of all the guardians, especially Groot the tree <3. If you have seen it and want more like it, maybe try other Marvel movies like X Men (personal fave), The Amazing Spider-man, The Avengers, you know the gang, but if you haven't seen it, go! Do it. Now!

Review: The Fault In Our Stars, Maleficent, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Most people who know me will know I'm a little bit of a film fanatic having maybe 600+ DVDs and netflix and the ability to borrow from friends. Recently I've been going to the cinema a lot with a good friend of mine and seen Maleficent and The Fault In Our Stars with him and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes with my boyfriend. 

The Fault In Our Stars
I had never read the book before seeing it, I had absolutely no idea what this was about, I know it's John Green because I love John Green but I'd never gotten around to reading this particular title. I knew it'd be sad bc just if snippets of things I'd heard from friends or seen online but I didn't not expect to cry like I did at various occasions in the film, if you've seen it, you know what I mean. A little bit about it as breif as possible, boy meets girl who is dying, they fall in love, they live their life as much as they can, twist ending, sadness. This film is genuinely really cute, like a few friends including my English teacher said it could be a bit cringey when portrayed on film which is fair enough as sometimes things work on paper but not on film and vice versa but I didn't find it cringy I think it could have been but because the acting was as good as it was, we're safe. However I did cringe when Hazel called the writer a douche something or other but we all say stupid things in the moment of anger don't we? This movie is good for a girly night where you all just need a good cry because a good cry can be the answer to all your problems or if you want a light ish but interesting film to cuddle up to. You'll always get those people who swear blind that the book is better but as I've not read the book it was a good film overall. Similar films to watch; My Sisters Keeper, The Notebook, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button etc. 

Maleficent actually came out a while ago, may 30th but I was in the middle of my GCSEs then so I couldn't go and see it due to revision taking over my life and replicating in my cells, but I really wanted to see it so thank disney it's still in cinemas, even if the cinema was empty but I'm not complaining. It's about the villain from sleeping beauty and why she is how she is and why she cursed the baby. I actually expected some really dark twisted back story and I don't know why considering it was a PG however I really loved what I got instead more, very disney, *spoilers* (maybe), with how she fell in love with Stefan and he betrayed her to be king. I think it taught a very good lesson of love>greed and how man sometimes forgets that! But Maleficent wasn't all that bad really she was just mad at the humans and how they could be so greedy. I can relate to Maleficent with her good intentions but fierce aura it's how all women should live I mean aside from cursing people but not all of us have that kind of power. Oh but the dragon, it was beautiful what good story doesn't have a dragon in the end, love it. The ending was perfect, it really showed the true colours of all the characters but I don't wanna give too much away. Similar films to see; Sleeping Beauty (of course), Enchanted, Mirror Mirror, Red Riding Hood etc. 

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
I literally only saw Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes a week ago and that's because I'm trying to get out my rom com musical disney comfort zone and have a wider range of films in my collection and I really loved it so 3 days later I saw the next one along which is Dawn (we shall call from now on due to ver long title). For those who don't ken what it's about here's a ver basic synopsis, these apes are ver cleaver and escaped from captivity with Ceasar as their lead who had been tested on when younger to make him ver ver cleaver but his owners fell in love with him he fell in love with them so because he defended one who had alsimers, he got put into captivity where he wasn't treated well so he rallied up the other apes and they escaped to leave us where we are now, Ceasar is like king with a family very separate to humans but peaceful until invaded. I wasn't expecting it to be as further away in the future than Rise as it was but I'm not complaining, but I did question how long apes lived for then realised it probably wasn't that far in the future as I thought,they just got a flesh eating virus is all and the people alive and the apes were genetically immune, stupid Rachel. I really liked the apes to be honest like, I genuinely exhaled with excitement when the baby ape was on screen, it was so adorable. But I didn't like koda, watch it and we can hate koda together. If you liked this you could like; Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, The Hunger Games, any of the X men movies, The Dark Knight Trilogy etc

Be expecting more movie posts as all I do is watch movies and I love it,

Tigi BedHead Style Shots Extreme Straight Review


For a very long time I kept going on about tigi products and still do just in general because I heard such great reviews and one of my favourite pass times is hair care but I'd never used anything from it before, so for my birthday a very lovely friend of mine bought me these salon size bottles. My birthday was a ver long time ago (October) but as it was an everyday kind of a shampoo I thougt a review after a long time would be best. First off it smells absolutely lush, kind of like maybellines baby lips cherry, after 9 months I still haven't got fed up of it. On the bottle it claims that it gives 'over the top smoothness', 'perfectly clean feel' and helps 'out of control frizz'. Naturally my hair is very curly, thick and very frizzy so extreme straight was probably not right for my hair type but when blow dried straight from the shower it was very smooth so that ones a tick, and my hair did feel perfectly clean for days after using it so that's also true however it did not really help the frizz, but that's just my hair type, natural frizz that can't be tamed. Overall if you have naturally straight hair you want to enhance, this is the one for you, but I absolutely love tigi and want all their products.

Nandos Virginity

Even with all the reccent buzz about nandos over the past, what? 3 years, I'd never been to nandos until yesterday. They way everyone went on about it I was expecting this massive posh thing but really it was just enough casual meets fancy that I really like it, if I was a restaraunt I'd wanna be nandos js. 
It was one of my beautiful best friends 16th birthday so we went for that and I really loved it, I am a big fan of spicy food now. I had the grilled chicken burger in medium with two sides of chips and corn on the cob, which I wouldn't have chosen had I been on a date, there is no lady like way to eat corn on the cob no matter how hard you try, so I'll keep that one in mind - life tips. I would have taken a picture of my meal but I'm just not one of those girls... Yet.
This was my last chip right here and we captured itπŸ™Œ

Before we went for our nandos meal, the sixth form I've chosen for next year put on a social event BBQ with some other treats as a nice mixer ready for next year now we've all finished our GCSEs and it was so nice to be at school in a chilled environment with the people I'm spending the next two years with. We had things such as gladiator inflatables fighting which was so fun, I went on against my friend and won, but it was so hard to just get on the podium especially if you're 5ft3 but the fierce in me made up for it. 

As well we had the sumo suits, however I was not brave enough to face this one, couldn't bear to think of who'd been in it before, oh the horrors😫, however a few friends of mine did go in and it was horrific it really brings out the fighter in you. 

That's it for now, take care
