hair envy

I was on today and saw this photos from the set which are a few weeks old, but i had to post them! I think Blake looks great in this outfit, even if it is a little daring for the rainy Manhattan weather they were having at the time! What I really like about this though is the hair, which you can see better in this picture (below)

Here Blake is kissing on-screen boyfriend Sebastian Stan, but while he is rather nice to look at, what i'm really in love with here is the hair! It has that perfect summer-beachy-look that I could NEVER achieve with my barnet!

"Hello ladies and gentlemen, this is a robbery"

So last night my mother and I watched Thelma & Louise for the first time. I know - talk about late in the day but it's a film i've always wanted to see but never got round to. My dad used to own a copy and it was one of his favourite movies but i don't know what happened to his copy, so i rented this out from the library and we watched it last night ! What can I say? AMAZING.
If you've already seen it then this is gonna sound like old news but I didn't expect it to be so good, I mean, I vaguely knew the plot and anything with Susan Sarandon in it is bound to be brilliant but I didn't think it would be so funny, nor so captivating. I thought it would be much darker, more like a thriller, but actually it's much more of a chick flick, surprisingly feel-good and really uplifting, despite the sadness in some parts.
But I really enjoyed it :) totally re-inforced by eagerness to do a road trip around America - especially the West. I was name-checking all the places they drove through - such amazing scenery, you couldn't have shot this movie anywhere else !
So anyway, aside from watching Thelma & Louise, i've mostly been sleeping in, getting through series 1 of Sex and the City (the best series inmy opinion) and going to the gym when I can.
It's a lovely day today but a little too hot, and I woke up in a sweat which wasn't very nice, with the bedcovers wrapped around me and with creases on my face which lasted until the afternoon!
Off to Pilates with mother tonight (i've never normally this active in one day I assure you !) and i'm in the midst of entering this writing competition for a well known magazine so will be working on that this evening and tomorrow I expect. I haven't written in so long so I have little confidence in my writing ability but it can't hurt to try right? Oh and am making my way through The Lord of the Rings troliogy and absolutely loving getting lost in that right so. Still can't get over how much they've missed out of the films !
Au Revior,
(p.s 8 days until I finish work ! )

how time does fly !

I am the world's crappiest blogger. It's offical. I have no excuse but to say that I have just been majorly busy with work and have been too exhausted to even think about constructing a blog worth reading. I have a day off today and tomorrow so decided it was time to blow the cobwebs away and actually start writing again! I have finally found my camera lead (another one of the reasons i have not blogged) so will be gradually uploading some of the lovely photos from my summer so far!

Beach huts at Bournemouth !

Me looking like an old lady

My mother is so photogenic, i hate her for it. And so tanned as well!

Monkeys !

The monkey that jumped onto my shoulder seconds after this was taken !

I like monkeys.

The cutest couple ever.

Ardvark :D

"Simples" hahaha

There are loads more pictures but those are two of the best days out i've had since summer began. Tbh my summer's been pretty crap since i started work, all i seem to do if work, eat and sleep, and am being really unsociable.

I finish work at the end of this month and the weekend after I'm going to stay with my mum and her boyfriend, which I haven't done for ages, and we're going to go to the seaside and have roast dinner :) i can't wait. Hopefully going to Wales for a week as well, and then moving into my student house! Have been buying loads of little bits for it already and spent a fortune in Ikea (!) but it's all worth it to make my room all lovely and cosy :) it'll be a world away from horrible student halls !

Pictures of recent buys to come soon - spent loads in MAC today which is not great for my bank balance, and as for the saving i'm supposed to be doing...
