The Stable, Birmingham

I'm a habitual creature. I don't go to new restaurants often. I find one I like (usually a chain) and then I tend to stick with it. In short, I'm in Nando's a lot and there was a short obsession with TGIF which promptly ended due to a curt manager. Meh. So I'm glad to… Continue reading The Stable, Birmingham

Cinematic Fire – Get Out the Comedy Horror Everyone is Talking About

  I'm in a daze. I felt so dizzy walking out of the cinema. I went to the multiplex this time to see Get Out. Odeon on New Street. Not my first choice but I was eager to see it as soon as it was released. I must say, I'm not a fan of the… Continue reading Cinematic Fire – Get Out the Comedy Horror Everyone is Talking About

5 Friendship Offences You Shouldn’t Ignore

Since I was a child I've always had friendship problems. The irony lies in the fact that I'm a friendly person and don't find it difficult to make friends. But therein lies the rub. I click with people easily but have the tendency to show a lack of discernment. Most people have experienced some form… Continue reading 5 Friendship Offences You Shouldn’t Ignore

Indie Make Up Brands Are Getting a Bit Too Fresh for Me

I made a video about this as a joke. I doubt I'll be uploading it. But since writing is my forte I shall do that. I love make up. I have my favourite brands and slogans that appeal to me as an individual. You might say I am a marketer's dream.

Why I Love Going Out Alone and You Should Too

I've wanted to write about this for a while. The first time I did something social on my own (sounds a bit oxymoronic) was when I was 18. I went to see Wanted at Cineworld. At 18 I was anxious about going to the cinema on my own. Now, I will happily watch two films… Continue reading Why I Love Going Out Alone and You Should Too

Moonlight and Hidden Figures at The Electric Cinema

I just got in from a fun day in town. I did a double whammy. Two movies at the cinema in one day. This is the second time I've done this. The first time I saw Life of Pi at The Electric Cinema and Side Effects at the Odeon on New Street. I recommend both… Continue reading Moonlight and Hidden Figures at The Electric Cinema

Slave of the State – 13th a documentary by Ava Duvernay

I started writing this post two nights after watching 13th, the new documentary by Ava Duvernay. That was 2 weeks ago. I admit I was scared to watch it at first. One of my best friends brought it to my attention and commented how upsetting it was. While I am keen to educate myself on… Continue reading Slave of the State – 13th a documentary by Ava Duvernay

‘Fences’ at The Electric Cinema

I love the cinema. I am a self-professed cinephile. I am happiest sat in a dark room¬†ready to be whisked off into whatever reality the film wants to take me. I'm overjoyed that there are serious films out this year that feature black and brown actors. Films that have been recognised by the Academy no… Continue reading ‘Fences’ at The Electric Cinema
