Time To Celebrate

What's What?

I have been a little bit missing from the internet to be honest and there are many reasons for that. So I quit my job in July at the agency where I was working which was a mistake and a good decision. I have enjoyed my time away from work but it has also been very stressful as I have a few responsibilities coming my way. But thankfully yesterday I got offered another role which I start next week.

I have not read a whole book in 5 weeks! This is really bad but honestly its just because I've been super busy, I'm writing a joined book with my fiancé, I'm looking to move house and I've been doing as much activities as I can whilst being off.
My Fiat has finally left my drive and been replaced with a Kia. The car is absolutely perfect, it drives beautifully and I can totally trust it.

So this last weekend gone we went away to Bridlington. I got to see my auntie and uncle, we walked along the beach and spent a lot of 2ps. We were only able to get lucky with one gift but where we went you also got tickets to get other things. I was being brave and took Dave to the pirate scary house near the beach, WORST mistake of my life. I was so, so scared. There was people being electrocuted, hung and lots of screaming.
I have never been so frightened in my life.

We stayed at a B&B 5 minutes from the beach. It was such a lovely place and the staff were really friendly. The only thing we didn't like was how small the dining area was and we were super cramped. Apart from that it was perfect.

I absolutely loved the beach, spending time playing in the sea and sand with the one I love. Also taken by Dave Nick Stone. 

Overall life has changed dramatically for me and to be honest it's the best changes in my whole life. I finally feel myself and don't care as much to what people are saying. I'm happy and that's all that matters. 
I hope you enjoyed my post and images.

Suicide Squad Movie Review

Review (no spoilers)

Dave, me and a 4 other friends went to go see Suicide Squad in the cinema. I do love going out to watch movies but I hate the 20 minutes of trailers and they even do normal adverts now! I mean we pay £8/9 to get away from the rubbish adverts, next thing you know we'll have them in the middle of the movie. Anyway forget that on to the movie part which I will warn you was a little bit of a let down. So we are introduced to these amazing, crazy, hard characters. I enjoyed the first half of the movie where we got to know what the Suicide Squad's backgrounds were and how they got to where they are now which is a prison. I would probably rate the movie 2.45 stars out of 5 there was a LOT missing from the movie.

They couldn't have chosen a better set of actors! I just wish there was more scenes with the joker in because it would have made it a lot better overall. The movie did have a lot of plot falls and sometimes things didn't make sense. Even though there are 7 people in the squad you only see Deadshot and Harley Quinn making the most of the movie. Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie was incredible, no one in the world could have made her any better. She was funny, quirky and definitely crazy. Her outfit was a little skimpy but who gives a flying ass monkey? She looked perfect. Deadshot played by Will Smith was awesome although I do prefer Arrow's Deadshot. His character/ acting was perfect and he took the lead when things went seriously wrong.

Unfortunately for me it just didn't live up to the standards of what I was expecting, I mean I loved The Dark Knight Rises which was also produced by DC but this movie hasn't made the cut. You may have a different opinion because one of Dave's friends really enjoyed the film, I think it depends on your point of view.

Dave's thoughts

It was poorly edited although Margot Robbie did a brilliant portrayal of Harley Quinn. I would have liked to have seen more of the Joker unfortunately some of his scenes were cut robbing the actors efforts and the big bad could have been better. I'll give it a second chance when it comes out on DVD but overall a bit disappointed.


I hope you enjoyed our blog post, see you soon.
Love, Becky and Dave.

The Girl Of Ink And Stars by Kiran Millwood Harhrave

The Girl of Ink and StarsI picked this book up in Tesco's and they were doing an offer, 2 books for £7! I wasn't going to miss that opportunity, I did this whole trying to hide it from my other half but he soon saw through me. It was quite funny because when he saw them he was dead dramatic gasp and then we both burst into giggles. I am going to be totally honest with you guys I totally went onto a cover buy, I mean who wouldn't it is beautiful. The orange cover with the black silhouette is just to die for. I just love all the blacked out animals. I would rate this book 4.5 out of  stars, I loved it.

Review (no spoilers)

So we start off with Isabelle and her best friend Lupe. They get into a fight which makes events fall into place. The whole book is an adventure trying to find Lupe and what's killing people and animals. This book just moved along so smoothly even if it's a little bit slow in some places. One night when I was feeling ill and couldn't read my amazing boyfriend read to me just before I fell asleep. It was one of the sweetest things that has happened to me so far. At the end of the book you get this satisfying feeling but you also might have so anger.. no spoilers. This book took me 4 days to finish simply because I was tired.

The characters were all amazing and well thought out. There wasn't much growth apart from Lupe who grew more confident and kick ass. I don't think the story would have changed if the characters were different they all worked well and helped the story along. Isabelle was a lovely young girl that wanted to make more in life and she discovers something about her mother and father that helps when she's in trouble.

This book was on point and definitely perfect for anyone that loves adventure, friendship and fantasy. It is such a good read for the younger generation because it really does get your imagination running. It will make you want to go out and find a secret tunnel.

I hope you enjoyed my review, enjoy your weekend and I'll see you soon.

The BFG Movie Review

I didn't realise while I've been travelling back and forth to my other half's house that my blogposts had stopped publishing even though I set them up. I went onto my account and they had been deleted! I couldn't believe it, all that effort. Note to self always keep a copy of your blogpost on Word. Moving on Dave and I went to the cinema on Saturday to see the new BFG movie and it was perfect with a few minor defaults. We got into the cinema, got our seats and saw millions of little children pouring into the seats. Dave was worried. Everything was going fine until a small family came and sat next to us, dooms day came upon us. They were so noisy, I get that children get excited/ fidgety but this was taking the mick a little, all the other children were so well behaved. But anyway moving on the movie was a hit I would rate it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Review (no spoilers)

So to wrap the story up in a little bow we go on a journey with a little girl who finds a friendly giant. She makes it her job to help him from the other Giants who aren't so friendly. It does get a little bit slow in the middle but the whole film is incredible. The whole creation and animation was done beautifully. During the film you did question how they did it and made the giant look not so intimidating; the costumes/ body builds were perfect for each of the characters. Steven Spielberg couldn't have made this movie any better even if he tried.

BFG was such an amazing character you really start to feel for him. He's been bullied and pushed around for all his life. BFG grows into such a brave giant. Sophie was a sweet little orphan that uses her earth knowledge to help BFG and they build a lovely sweet family feeling. The fact that BFG goes out of his comfort zone to save the humans gives a brilliant message to the younger generation.

Dave's comments,

Even though the film offered nothing new to the plot or formula it was still enjoyable to see a real life version of the big friendly giant. The cast were well thought of, it was funny although dragged in a few places but that doesn't ignore the fact that this is possibly the most colourful film of the year that could even shed a tear for some. 3.5 out of 5 not amazing but near enough. In one word to describe it I'd say beautiful.

As you can see we both enjoyed the film, some thing lacked but overall it was fantastic. I would recommend it for the younger and older generation just to see the book come to life. I hope you enjoyed my post, see you soon.

The Trials Of Apollo by Rick Riordan

What happened?

So I'm just flicking through a couple of emails and all of a sudden I get an email from Netgalley. As soon as I saw the request I clicked on it and sent it straight to my kindle, I was so happy. I literally jumped up and down with joy; obviously it wasn't long before I shared it with you guys. This was the first Rick Riordan book which I read and it has pushed me to buy his Percy Jackson series (obviously I haven't read them yet). The book was so easy to get through and it didn't take me long at all to speed through. I enjoyed it so much I bought the physical copy. I would rate it 4.5 stars out of 5; it was 100% incredible.

Review (no spoilers)

We start with meeting Apollo who is a little arrogant but I did start to like him towards the end of the book. So Apollo has been stripped of all his Godly powers because of something he did which I won't give away. We go through a huge adventure which Rick Riordan writes amazingly. We meet a lot of new characters and get to see the world from a different point of view, we do see Percy Jackson for a little bit. The story flows well, the writing is perfect and I would read this book again. The cover is beautiful and my favourite, the whole falling Apollo is great but thought it gave a little bit away.

Apollo was a good character and grew a little through out the story. Meg McCaffrey was my favourite she was so refreshing. I loved the fact that she was some secret bad ass that didn't know what her true potential was. All the side characters were written really well and were put well into the story to make it flow better.

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1)

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Rick Riordan's writing or his stories. Like I said before at the top of my review I haven't read one of his books before, I really enjoyed it. It was a great piece of literature, definitely a decent read. I hope you enjoyed my review and if you are un-sure about reading this book I would definetly push you to read it. I can't wait for the next book even if I have to wait till 2017.

The Conjuring 2

So I went on a date with the best man I have ever met in my entire life, he is also known as my boyfriend. We walked into the cinema and hardly anyone was there; as soon as the lighting went down everyone seemed to pile in. The whole experience was so great, I love the whole atmosphere. I do remember that the lights were left on too bright and it took away the effect of the film. We also had some noisy people who wouldn't shut up so one lady told them off, it was very funny. The film did lack a little bit but it still made me jump a lot. My lovely Patrick Wilson was in the film again, he just makes such a good actor/parent. If I met him I'd probably faint with excitement however I faint all the time so it wouldn't make any difference. Overall I would rate it a 3 out of 5 stars.

Lets get down to business

We start off very confused I literally had no idea what was going on and I still don't think I do. The whole story is based on this man who doesn't want to move onto the other side, or is it. You find out later on in the film what's going on and it is really freaky. I'd love to have Lorraine's seeing powers but I also wouldn't because she sees some creepy stuff. We learn that togetherness can scare off nasty spirits. The film kind of ends really quickly and it was very predictable. Even though the film wasn't as good as the first one it is definitely worth a watch.

So as I said Patrick Wilson is the main guy with Vera Farmiga, these are always so good together. You can see the chemistry they have with each other. I didn't realise how much of a good actor Frances O'Connor is I have seen some of her previous work but I just cant remember what it was she was in. All the acting was incredible and the casting was brilliant. I think a lot of congratulations goes to James Wan and his amazing skills. The film flows so nicely I just wish they extended the ending a little bit so we could know a bit more about the nun.


I hope you enjoyed my post, I do want to apologise the absence of my posts I've been super loved up and haven't had much access to the internet. There will be some awesome posts, Deadpool is next!! I loved it.

Bad Neighbours 1 & 2

Number 1

This film was EPIC! I absolutely loved it. It isn't a film for anyone under 16 years old, there is a lot of sexual content, drugs and bad language. We start off with a cute young couple who have just had a baby and are wanting to get on with their lives. Then Teddy, Pete and their fraternity move in next door. This is when everything goes wrong, war. Both sides try to beat the other down. The movie ends with an epic firework display and a cute bonding session with Teddy and Pete. To be honest with you there isn't much of a story line it is just a movie full of payback, but it is SO funny. 

The acting was brilliant Seth Rogen is definitely a very funny man. I never realised how good of an actor Zac Efron was but that could partly be because of his looks. All in all the film was great and I can't wait for the second one. 4 out of 5 stars. 




Number 2 

I'm going to be honest with you the second one flopped a little bit but it was just as funny. I did feel we were a little more rushed for this film. Directors don't use Selena Gomez again let her stick to what's she's known for (singing). This story is a little bit different and has a good meaning to it. We have a lot of double standards that get ironed out in the end. This film was as funny as "a bag of dicks'. 

The acting was a LOT better in this film, when Chloe gets flung back on a cord phone. That was freaking hilarious! The film did feel like there had to be more to it but I really enjoyed it. Seth is definitely becoming one of my favourite actors. 4 out of 5 stars. 


I hope you enjoyed this post, I should have reviewed The Trials Of Apollo but I'm still reading it. Stay tuned it will be coming. Love, Becky.
