Day in the life…

This week was my mum’s 47th birthday so to celebrate I met up with her and the rest of my family in London. Unfortunately my phone died before I had the chance to film the more interesting things such as seeing the amazing ‘Let It Be’ in Leicester Square but heyho.

‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ Review

safetynotguaranteed

With a plot so rife with twists and turns safety is most certainly not guaranteed whilst watching this indie/sci-fi infusion. Starring the ever-sarcastic Aubrey Plaza as jaded magazine intern Darius, who volunteers to assist her arrogant boss Jeff (Jake Johnson) investigate a mysterious ad placed by a supposed time-traveller.

At the start of the film we have the cliché melancholy plot that hangs over many indie films: dead mother, no social life and a dead-end job however this all changes within the first 10 minutes as Darius is chosen to go out into the field and track down the author of an ad requesting a partner to go time-travelling with: Kenneth (Mark Duplass).

Plaza’s famous dry humour brings realism and comic relief to a seemingly zany plot whilst tackling darker undertones, as the film continues we gradually learn more about Kenneth and attempt to decipher the state of his mental health; is he nuts or a genius? As Darius and Kenneth form a close bond and begin to realise that things in the present aren’t so bad after all, the film starts to shift into rom-com territory we are under the impression that there’ll be a sweet happily ever after- which is the precise moment when everything changes and we’re brought right back to Earth again with a tear-jerking plot twist.

A refreshing change from your average indie films, Safety Not Guaranteed is well written, cast and directed. Definite must see for anyone looking for something a bit different from the likes of ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’, that will actually leave you feeling good after you’ve watched it rather than depressed and sobbing. I rate it 4/5 stars and suggest that you wear your seatbelts and helmets for this emotional rollercoaster ride!

The British Tag

Hello people who read my blog, I’m Faith and i’m bored so I’m going to do the British tag as I am in fact British. I was born up north in Blackburn, then have lived in Lincolnshire for about 19 years and am now down south for uni so I like to think of myself as multi-regional which you may see reflected in my stupid answers below…

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day and how many sugars?

Am I the only Brit who doesn’t like tea? I’m a coffee/hot chocolate kinda gal

2. Favourite part of your roast?

YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS

 3. Favourite dunking biscuit?

Bourbons, bourbons – bury me in bourbons.

4. Favourite quintessentially British past time?

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm, tutting at queue pushers?

 5. Favourite word?

‘Eggnog’ is the first thing that pops into my head and I can’t think of a more sophisticated answer…

 6. Cockney rhyming slang?

My flat mate literally just taught me a load yesterday, ‘put a smile on yer boatrace love’ (boatrace= face)

 7. Favourite sweet?

Stupidly long jelly snakes rock my world

 8. What would your pub be called?

I’d like it to be Harry Potter themed and called “The Chamber of Swagness”, As long as I wouldn’t get sued by JK Rowling

9. No.1 British person?

There’s so many people I could put here but off the top of my head Jimmy Carr

10. Favourite shop/restaurant? 

Zara and well it’s not strictly speaking a restaurant but Spoons (wetherspoons, specifically The Ivy Wall in Spalding)

 11. What British song pops into your head?

SOME WANT TO KISS, SOME WANT TO KICK YOU – THERE’S NOT A NET YOU COULDN’T SLIP THROUGH…

12. Marmite

“Surprise bitch, bet you’d thought you’d seen the last of me”.

HELLO MY LITTLE BLOGGING CHERUBS, I HAVE RETURNED AFTER A REALLY LONG TIME

Sorry for the lapse of posts over the last few months – but fear not, I have many excuses in the form of essays, deadlines, laziness and drunken nights out (but we won’t discuss those). Oh and also I’m now the social media manager for a new up and coming luxury menswear designer Helen Anthony, so I’ve been rather busy with that (I would appreciate it if y’all had a gander/follow and made me look good merci merci)…

I have also been dabbling in the not so wonderful world of modeling, I’ll explain about that more later but I’ll just give you a little taster below
