I’m all ready for the weekend. A movie night, some snacks, and some friends invited round are my favourite kind of catch ups. But whenever we get together, we have no idea what to watch? We always end up watching some kind of chick flick as it’s something we can all enjoy. Here’s my top 7 picks:

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I bought a DVD box set of Audrey Hepburn films a few years ago now. But still, Breakfast at Tiffany’s will always be my go to Hepburn.

The Notebook

Because who doesn’t want to spend a few hours dreaming about Ryan Gosling.

Romy and Micheles High School Reunion

I watched this when it was still on Netflix and loved it. I make all of my friends watch it now.

Mean Girls

Well of course Mean Girls would be on this list. It’s the ultimate girls night film.

10 Things I Hate About You

Heath Ledger is a dream in 10 Things I Hate About You. The serenade was the best part.

She’s the Man

I used to love Amanda Byne’s and especially in this film. I just loved her attitude of doing exactly what she wants even though she’s a woman.


Everyone loves Clueless right?


Who else is still a Disney fanatic? I was talking to one of my friends, who’s obsessed, about what our favourite Disney Films are. I decided that I would share my top 5 films with you (although my top 5 changes all the time). Just as a quick post to give you a bit more insight into who I am, since I’ve been doing so many review’s recently.

1. The Little Mermaid

2. Brave

3. Lady and the Tramp

4. Toy Story

5. Treasure Planet


What are your favourite Disney films?


Pretty much anyone who knows me, knows how much I love The Lord of the Rings. I have watched the extended edition films over and over again. I’ve also had the books for a good ten years, my copies look slightly battered now. I was lucky enough to get The Art of Lord of the Rings for Christmas and it was my favourite present.

As you can it is in this gorgeously designed black hard cover. The cover actually has the artwork of The Return of the Kind book. I’m really happy about this as I have those covers for my books so they match. Although my books are at my mums house instead of with me near my dads.

The book itself is also hardback. It’s just so simplistically beautiful as a book. I just love hardback books. If I could have an library with old leather bound books, I would. Just imagine hundreds of books in blacks, golds, greens and reds.

Unfortunately, most of the artwork is sketches and not very colourful. But this Hobbiton drawing and the Lothlorien one below are coloured.  The Hobbiton drawing is also one of the most detailed images. I really loved it, the colours made it look happy and cheerful which is very similar to how it’s shown in the book.

I especially love Lothlorien because there’s a soft glow to it. It just makes me think of the elves, which is perfect really.

Now this is Helm’s Deep, and this is where it gets weird. The film has made it look very different I think. A lot of the drawings I could recognise, like Hobbiton, but I couldn’t for this one.

These sketches are of Orthanc in Isengard. Again very different to how they made it in the film. I like it though and you really see the progression of thought into it. I think a lot of writers dont think about these things as much as Tolkien did. Which is a shame, because this is why Middle-Earth is so deep and well written.

The map of Middle-Earth is my favourite book map. I just had to take a photo of it.

The design on the right is one I have on my copy. Tolkien had so much input into the designs, which just excites me as a reader. Plus, it’s still his design on my cover.

I really love the inscriptions so again I had to include an image.




Do you ever feel like you have nothing to watch? I always seem to sit scrolling through Netflix trying to find something new to watch, and then sometimes I just dont feel like it. I know me, and I know the shows I do like. Some are a lot easier to binge watch when you have a free day and here’s my list of go-to binge worthy shows.


If you haven’t binge watched friends on Comedy Central when you’ve been off work/school have you even lived? Friends is also the show that I revise to because I’ve seen it so much.

Gossip Girl

Sometimes, I’m not fully sure what to watch on Netflix so I revert back to rewatching Gossip Girl episodes. There’s always something you’ve forgotten on a re watch.

Pretty Little Liars

I spent so many hours rewatching PLL after the last season came out just to try and see all the clues about A.


With a solid 12 seasons, it’s one of the best shows to binge watch because there’s so many episodes.

Gilmore Girls

Especially with the new episodes on Netflix, Gilmore Girls is ready for a binge fest.


Amazon debut pilots of shows, and give full seasons to the ones that members give positive feedback on. I decided to watch and review Amazon’s new pilot episodes myself. I’ve now watched The Legend of Master LegendThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Budding Prospects.


After watching Game of Thrones and Cinderella I’ve been waiting for Richard Madden to take on a new project. Oasis was a great choice for him in a leading role. The character of Peter Leigh is a wonderful born again christian, griefing for his dead wife and convinced to go to the Oasis Colony in space. When he arrives, David Morgan, the man who begged him to join them is missing and the living conditions are questionable.

I love the intrigue of the show. Talking about religion in a sci-fi show seemed different and inevitably raised a lot of questions. Is there really a god on this planet? Is it just aliens? What’s really happening to the people? I’m already to sit and binge watch a full series to find out all the answers. So i’m thinking about purchasing the book it’s based on as well.

Packed full of characters, only touched upon slightly, who have their own backgrounds ready to be explored. Each individual seemed to have their own back story, their own regrets and their own desires of being at Oasis. There’s so much to explore in this show. Whether it’s the new planet, the dying earth or the new characters. I cant wait to see if it will be continued as there’s so many questions I want answered.
