Glasto Nostalgia

So yesterday would have been the first day of Glastonbury, the long drive down there, and (what feels longer) long walk with huge bags and tents to where we normally set up camp- near 'The park' but at the bottom on the way to Hare Krishna. I wish it was on this year I could really do with a bit of Glasto in my life right now.
Heres some snaps from previous Glastos (excuse the drunkeness)

Addicted to...

Beauty boxes
 So I am not usually one for writing about beauty products etc.
But after recently reading quite a few beauty blogs and becoming more and more interested in this area I came across the 'Beauty Box'!!
I've signed up to two at the moment and am going to compare and see which one I feel is better. But basically I'm already addicted!!

In case you didn't know 'The Beauty Box' is a new(ish) trend across the UK which involves you subscribing each month and paying aorund £10 (+p&p) and you recieve a monthly beauty box which includes five new beauty products, ranging from make up, hair products, creams, moisturisers etc for you to test and these can be in travel or full size samples.
There are many boxes avaliable; ShesaidBeauty- a monthly box costing £9 +p&p, with five products and a service to cater to you (skin type, hair etc,)  Joliebox- a montly box costing £10 + p&p, with 4-5 products, but unfortunately not as many brands are on board nor can you personalize to you skin type etc,  Glossy Box- a monthly box costing £10 +p&p, with five products, a wide variety of brands and a personaliztion beauty service(they also do a mens Glossy box), Amarya- a monthly box specialising in natural and organic brands costing £10 +p&p, unfortunately this doesn't include a service tailoring to your personal preferences. And finally the Lux Box, a box that also caters for men and women that you can personalise and which I believe is only 2 months old- so the newest to join the beauty box scene.

Summer Film review; The Cool ones

The cool ones are; Moonrise Kingdom, On the Road, and To Rome with love

Moonrise Kingdom from the director of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" , Wes Anderson. It is set in the 1960s and the film has a hue to it, giving it a sunny feel which lends itself to portraying this era. The story is about two 12 year olds who run away together into the wildnerness of New England. A large search party ensues, part made up of the film's famous cast  Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Ed Norton. It looks interesting enough, and seems to share the same dry sarcasm that was littered throughout "Fantastic Mr. Fox". I give this a 7.5/10

Summer Films review; The 'Big' ones

Right so to start I’m sure many of you would have already seen Avengers Assemble, and I’m sure many of you would agree it ticks the boxes needed for most films, a decent plot line attempts to add depth and emotions to each of the characters, a sad middle and a happy ending. However I found it ‘so-so’. It was far too long, farfetched in places and didn’t quite deliver in others. Yes the effects were superb but so they should be for the amount spent on making the film. Also I don’t know about you but I’m slightly disillusioned with the Hulk character after seeing 3 different actors playing him in the last 10 ten in 3 different films. So a 6.5/10 from me. And Iron man- WTF did they do to you!?
