We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there’s still 11 months … Continue reading

My Christmas list

Last week I shared Jenson’s Christmas list and this week I’m sharing my growing list/Pinterest board. My birthday is two months away and Luke, the lovely boyfriend that he is, has already started shopping, so I’m not being that much of an eager beaver by putting together a Pinterest list of favourites for friends and family. It’s also a handy bookmark for new year sales, as it’s all bound to be reduced! Here are some of the highlights…

Top ten steelbooks from Zavvi

I love steelbooks. Given the option, if I’m buying a new release, I’ll get the super-duper, super-sexy bluray steelbook every time. If you plan on owning a film, you might as well go for the best version going. Plus the steelbooks look so damn awesome if (like me) you choose to make your DVD collection a ‘feature’ in your living room. Zavvi have several hundred steelbooks in their collection and I’ve managed to whittle them down to a top ten list – based solely on the beauty of the items. You didn’t think this would be based on the quality of the films now, did you? Again, in no particular order…
