If We Open The Door To Superstition, Where Does It Lead?

Hi all. 
Just a quick post tonight but had to share my ordeal with you!
Today I went (or rather was FORCED) to go and see 'The Woman in Black'.

For anyone who doesn't know about it, it's a new film adaptation of the story which stars Daniel Radcliffe and Ciaran Hinds. 
I was a bit worried about the believability as I'm obviously used to seeing Daniel as Harry Potter but he played it really well and I never thought about the Potter boy (although his wand skills would've come in really handy in my opinion). I really like Ciaran Hinds as well but, other than Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, I had only ever seen him in TV dramas. Both characters were performed well and were really relatable so I did care about what happened to them. 

The film itself has been hyped as one of the scariest of our time and I was already terrified before going... And it was all downhill from there.

I think I saw more of the inside of my scarf than I did the actual film. And I think me & Sophie spent more time elbowing each other in panic and trying to contain our nervous laughter! 

Obviously I'm not going to give anything away for anyone who wants to see it but the sound effects were probably the scariest thing about it. I really did get chills and it had me screaming! 

If you like the tension and adrenaline that goes with horror films then definitely go see this. It has a perfect mix of creepiness and jumpiness and also a bit of in your face horror! 

I'm never letting the girls lead me into a film like that again but I did love it I have to admit!

That's all for now, will post again soon. 
Lots of love, Taz

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Wow it's been forever since my last post. I'm going to assume a lot has happened since it's been so long so I'll try and remember as much as poss! Well... I got my ears pierced, after 21 years of not really being bothered about it. I expected it to really hurt but I didn't feel a thing! Not during or after. I've still got about 3 weeks before I can change them but I'm buying earrings now like no ones business! 
I also cut and dyed my hair. I got about 5 inches taken off (yikes!) and dyed it "Passion Red"!

I've been spending an astronomical amount of money... Naughty naughty. I think it's the whole 'after christmas' period where everything's on offer and you're looking for fresh things for your fresh start. Although I'm now not allowed to spend any more money this month! I've been back to my usual haunts (tea house, roots, dalton park etc) numerous times recently and I think they're probably a big factor in my spending! We also got the snow at the beginning of feb. 

Which, as anyone living in this country knows, means the whole of Great Britain shuts down at the sign of the first snowflake. It wasn't so bad this year though and although very pretty it didn't impact too much.

On the 14th me and my Uni friends went out for Emma's birthday and brought her presents & valentines things! I took along some party bags like we were 9 again... complete with balloons!

I've started using Graze and LoveFilm. Graze is brilliant because they send me a box each week which contains four pots of snacks, they're specially selected to have the best nutritious value and they really do fill you up. 

LoveFilm is excellent as well, a few friends had tried it before but, back in my darker days of DVD buying obsession, it had never appealed to me. However, now I'm a recovering addict (lol) it's really good. A few times there have been films I was going to go out and buy but instead got them from LoveFilm... And I'm so glad I didn't waste my money! One DVD was £10 which actually amounts to a whole month of my film subscription and therefore unlimited movies through the post and online!
Other than that things have been trundling along as usual... I'll do a purchases post soon to show you some of the lovely stuff I've got (including about 7 more Yankee Candles.. Oops) 

In the mean time, take care of yourselves. Lots of love, Taz x
