BBC’s The Musketeers Season One Review

the musketeers

The Musketeers Season One concluded on Mother’s Day here in the UK but doesn’t premiere on BBC America until June 22nd. I went home for the weekend over mother’s day and ended up watching all ten episodes during that time because my parents loved them so much and wanted me to watch the finale with them on the sunday night. We literally spent the whole weekend watching The Musketeers and chilling out, it was glorious. Any show that can hold my attention enough to be watched back to back is a keeper in my book!

Day Trip to the Zoo and OOTD!

scarlet forrest

Last monday, Ashley and I took a trip to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. It was such a beautiful day (if a little bit windy) and such a lovely experience. Although we were one of the few couples there who weren’t dragging small children along with them, I’d definitely recommend it for an amazing day out for all ages. I just thought I’d show you some pictures from our day, including a little OOTD.

You also might have spotted my “Zootime” necklace. This is a make your own words necklace I bought from Topshop a while back. When I saw it I absolutely had to have it and although it usually says Ohana, I thought this would be a welcome change for the day.

Divergent (The Movie) Review

divergent movie review

I took a trip to the cinema (for the first time in absolutely ages) to watch Divergent. I didn’t really know what to expect, all I’d heard was that the books were really good–akin to the Hunger Games, a triology I absolutely adore. SPOLIERS AHEAD.

The Incredibles: A Costume in Thirty Minutes

incredibles costume

I’m off to a Disney themed birthday party and I’m borrowing my friend’s Belle costume so I’m sorted. Only when I go to collect the costume from her house, two hours before the party, she declares that she’s so sorry and she left it at her home away from uni. Next step, try not to panic. Go home and and search every inch of the internet for an idea. Type all sorts of things into google… easy disney costumes, quick disney costumes, disney costumes from household items… Nothing seems to come up, and that’s when you have an idea. (I also love that you get a full view of my old lady trolley in the image above, oh and ignore the dirty mirror!)

Fishing out an old black vest top and old orange/yellow tank top out of the back of my cupboard, I set to work! I get the symbol off of a simple google image search and print it off my computer…

I then cut out the yellow/orange parts and the black parts separately and trace around them onto my fabric. I sew the orange section on top of the black section and then sew the entire thing onto a red blouse that I have. The best part is, I have to sew it on as I’m wearing the shirt because otherwise it won’t go over my head. Joy!

I pair the shirt with red tights (I have no idea why I have these), black heels and a black skirt (I unfortunately don’t have black shorts) but in all I think it comes off alright.

In all honesty, I know this is a complete shambles but I’m really quite proud of what I achieved in literally half an hour. The make up took a further ten to fifteen minutes but that was only because I really had no idea what I was doing with it when I started…

I used Barry M dazzle dust in Charcoal to create the mask with the No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Berry on my lips. I really wish I had taken more pictures now, but at the time I was in such a rush and I had absolutely no intentions to blog about this whatsoever!

Hope you like it! xx

Eden: An LUTheatre Production

lutheatre eden

I recently took part in a production called Eden with Leicester University Theatre Society and I’m incredibly proud of the results. I just wanted to show some photos of the production, taken by the wonderful Benjamin Alborough for the society… I’m hoping there’ll be a YouTube video I can show soon as well! 

Eden tells the story of Abel, an enthusiastic novice priest fresh out of the seminary who is beginning to realise the liberal style of thinking he assimilated in France isn’t welcome in dictatorial Portugal. He’s relieved when he meets the wealthy, eccentric Cesar Barbosa, and finds himself swept up in his new friend’s glamorous lifestyle. However, as he finds himself increasingly immersed in the family’s issues, he begins to realise things might not be as perfect as they seem…
