The Intern…

I first put this film on as a bit of a whim, as it had just been added to NowTV and I love a bit of Anne hathaway…and a bit of comedy, so I thought why not.

When it started I just thought it would really be a bit of background noise while I was doing other things, as it didn’t really capture me as much as I’d of liked. But once it got into it, I became more and more involved in the storyline.

It basically centres around a guy that’s retired, (without giving too much away) that finds life a bit boring. So he basically gets a job as a senior intern for a fashion company, not really sure as to what he’s doing but with tons of enthusiasm to learn pretty much anything and everything. Although the boss wasn’t entirely on board with this idea, he eventually works his way into the hearts of his colleagues and most importantly his boss…while tackling a few issues along the way (obviously).

Overall I really enjoyed the film. I found it had a refreshing storyline, mainly due to the usual roles being reversed. It really made a good watch, because let’s be honest the repeated storylines get a bit boring after a while. I don’t think I could fault this film really. The main casts were a great choice, and the roles were portrayed just the way they were intended.

I’d definitely recommend anyone to watch this if they like comedy films. Plus I mean who doesn’t like a bit of Robert De Niro…I actually think I have a new-found love for him now after watching this film…I might even look into other films he’s been in that I haven’t watched yet! We shall see…

My Biggest Fear 😱

Overall I try not to think of my fears. Partly because I’m trying to just live my life and partly because I don’t want to have a random panic attack by over thinking. But if I was to choose one thing I really fear. I honestly think it would be the fear of not being able to have children.

There’s two reasons why I fear this. The first one being infertility. From what I know there are no real problems of infertility in my family. But you never know do you. I mean what if contraception can have a lasting effect to some degree. They say that once you come off contraception, your fertility state will go to what it is meant to be…(Notice how they don’t say, to what it was before you started contraception, as if it will go to whatever fate chooses it to be). So I mean that’s a bit of a worry. But I’ve always seen the whole process of being pregnant and having your own baby as an amazing experience, hard I know…but I’d hate the thought of not being able to conceive.

The second reason I worry about this is because of my lack of partner. When people lay out their life plan they normally want to find a partner, be with them for a few years, get married, have time to themselves for a few more years and then think about having a baby…then if you want more than one, leave a couple of years before trying for another. I’m 23 (not that old I know, but) whenever I hear people talking about the problems that can occur in pregnancy as the person gets older, the age of that person seems to get younger and younger. I always thought the age problems started was 40…now people are saying they can start at 30. I know everyone’s different and it’s just a case that the chance of problems increase…it can still scare the shiz out of you. Especially when your already 23.

I know this is probably just me being a woman and over thinking it, but it is serious stuff. Especially when you know at some point you do want kids. Ok time to stop thinking about it before I freak out!

10 I’d love to visit! ✈️

This is going to be a really brief blog, just because I feel like I talk about travelling wayyyy too much. So I’m basically just going to list a place and a reason or two why I want to go.

  1. Rome – The history, and the romance I think the two combine just make it a dream destination.
  2. Berlin – Again the history, mainly the Berlin wall. I think it would just be incredible to see where the divide was created, and of course the museums. Also I wouldn’t mind going around christmas time to go to the christmas markets.
  3. Krakow – I know all of these seem to be linked to history but I’d like to go here because It’s easy to get to Auschwitz, but also I’ve heard the city is beautiful and cheap!
  4. Paris – another city of love (sad I know), but I always planned to go here since I did french at GCSE! And I love pancakes. And I secretly want to know just how big the Eiffel tower is…
  5. Ireland – this one is for a few reasons. It’s partly because if how pretty it looks of P.S I love you, partly because of the titanic museum up in Belfast, partly because i imagine it’s scenery is quite similar to Iceland but with trees and less volcano’s and partly because I mean the Irish accent…come on!
  6. Miami – one thing you’ll be pleased to know is that this is in no way history related. This trip would basically be for the sun and adventure…and by adventure I partly mean rollerblading along the beach boardwalk…because you know…why not!
  7. Canada – basically when my granddad was in the RAF he was based here for a while, so it’d be nice to see some of the things that he saw while he was there.
  8. Budapest – I honestly just think it would be interesting to see the culture of this place, on photo’s it looks incredible!
  9. Rio – this would mainly be for the carnival, it just looks amazing!..a once in a lifetime experience as some would say.
  10. Maldives – does this really need a reason? I mean haven’t you ever seen a photo? 😮 (If you haven’t there’s one linked to this post!

Well that’s my brief list…where would you like to travel to the most?

STOP WHAT YOUR DOING! Autumn is here…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE AUTUMN. So stop what you’re doing right now and take this is…autumn is here for you! BUT are you ready?

No this isn’t just a blog to notify you of the start of the best season. This is basically your go to guide, a mini handbook if you will…of how to make that transition between the season of sweat and the season of crunchy leaves.

First things first. Hot drinks! Leave the ice behind, the cold is coming for you. Now I know in warmer countries, you probably want to keep the ice around all year-long. But come on guys this is England, and it gets cold here…fast. So unless your drinking some sort of frappuccino, just forget about ice, your just making it worse for yourself.

Second on the list of amendments is clothing. Go right to the back of your wardrobe and pull out anything that screams autumn/winter. I’m talking boots, scarfs, big coats, tights, jumpers, and….the fluffy socks!! (this might not apply if your like me and wear them all year round). Anyway it’s time to start wrapping up warm so layer up!

This leads onto the next change of make up. Now that there’s less chance of us sweating off half a face of make up while we’re at work or just out and about, we can wear it all again. This means autumn eyeshadow, with some serious blending! And of course dark lipstick, the holy grail. Get ready for some dark red lips on Instagram!

Back to the food side of things, now that we don’t have to bare flesh we can start being a little bit more naughty again. So what if you accidentally skip the fruit and go for a chocolate pudding smothered in warm custard. Or even that bacon and brie panini instead of the standard salad. It’s okay! Not many people will see your body now until next year. (Probably shouldn’t be saying this when I’ve just started the gym like!)

Last thing on the agenda! Spending! For some reason I think I spend the most money in this season. Whether its candles, fleece blankets, books I’ll plan to (but never will) read, some random room decorations, or again a massive amount of fluffy socks…if it’s in the shops, it’s in my basket!

Anyway I’m sure I could go on and on but I’ll let you get back to the rest of your day now. Don’t forget this month I’ll be attempting my own blogtober…so keep your eyes peeled! 😘
