Thank-you notes are cool right? Whether they are the old fashioned pen and paper type or the more up to date text or email; they’re nice to give and receive aren’t they? I always try to say thank-you because I’m a stickler for good manners, and I think I achieve it with people but what… Continue reading A little thank-you to a favourite thing
This is a bit of a random post but the idea came to me and even though it's a little different to my usual content I really wanted to write it. So, here it is. Also, as it's Valentines day tomorrow and we are having an 'at home date night' to mark it, I figured… Continue reading An at home date night
It's been a little while since I have done a 'book versus movie debate' post but as I have recently read The Stepford Wives I figured that rather than just share my thoughts on the book, I would do a book and film comparison instead. There are two film adaptations, one was released in 1975 and the… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: The Stepford Wives
So, before I say anything please let me wish you all a Merry Christmas Eve! I love Christmas Eve, all the anticipation reaches fever pitch and everybody is excited and happy. Part of me loves it more than Christmas Day itself. What are your thoughts? Anyway, as there is just enough time to squeeze in… Continue reading Christmas jumpers – hit or miss?
I thought I would mix it up a little with this next choice. It's a very different type of book/film than I have looked at before but it's a choice that I wanted to include because I found it to be a very powerful read! As always, I am going to begin with a little… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: Girl Interrupted
Well, I do close the important ones! It's not like I'm driving with the door open or leaving the house without locking up, that would just be stupid! So, what am I talking about? Is this a build up to some metaphorical reasoning? Nope! I'm simply referring to the doors within my house. So, why… Continue reading I just don’t close doors now apparently
It was only a matter of time before this one made it into the series. It is quite possibly my favourite film of all time (big claim)! The book however is a different matter. I really like it, I enjoyed reading it and Nicholas Sparks is one of my favourite authors but I wouldn't say… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: A Walk to Remember
I think I have a slight obsession with candles. I have way too many candles! I mean, I could probably stock my own shop, there's that many in my collection! I just love them though. I have large jar candles, votives, wax melts, tealights and so the list goes on. I have every colour of the rainbow… Continue reading You can’t have too many candles!
Ok, so technically that title is incorrect. It is still Autumn but it definitely feels like Winter now! There has been a morning frost on more than one occasion and my big, cosy coats are out...not to mention the hats, scarves, gloves etc! With Christmas just around the corner (less than a month now, sorry… Continue reading Now it’s Winter!
Before we begin, I just want to put links here to The book versus movie debate and The book versus movie debate: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz so you can check out the other installments in this series if you haven’t already and would like to. Now, I thought I would switch it up with this… Continue reading The book versus movie debate: The Devil Wears Prada
