Life Changing News 💑🤰🏼

My blog has been very quiet recently for a very good reason. A very shocking but really good news. My partner and I are expecting!! Exciting news right? We found out about a month ago after several positive tests. 

Clearly our family was told pretty early on. This was because if anything went wrong, we’d have a support system to rely on. All of which were very happy to hear. As we got closer to the 12 week mark, we made an announcement on social media officially. 

I’m writing this post now I’m 12 weeks, to share the news with my readers and to let them know that my blog may get neglected a bit as I’m learning this new part of my life. This is also so we can look back at my life. Kind of like an online diary

But here’s my beautiful baby! As of the latest scan all was healthy and well! 


Thanks for all the well wishes. We appreciate them all!

Free Fire: Film Review.

This was not a film I was looking forward too, despite the star studded cast. I did see the trailer a few times, It didn’t really catch my eye. But this was date night, by the partner’s choice. Saying that, Cillian Murphy did catch my eyes in the trailer, being one of my many, many celebrity crushes. That’s usually all it takes for me to watch a film, a hot movie star.

This film, set in the 70’s, which was kept consistent throughout the set design and styling. Themovie did well, to stretch a shootout scene, for most of the screen time, and do it in such a clever way; but still keeps it intriguing. It doesn’t feel dragged out. Which is what I would of thought would be their number one problem.

All in all, I’d recommend this movie!

Crushing Hard… 🌷💋❤️

I got inspired to start writing this post at midnight by hand in my cute little ‘daydreamer’ notebook. I thought could help any readers who are currently crushing on any individual. I’ve just typed this straight up, word for word from my notebook. Though this won’t be as pretty as what I have written in the book, with cute heart doodles on each page. As the title implies, my crush seems to have hit me like a truckload.

*Forbidden love is an enticing concept filled; lust, mystery and temptation*

There is not a undescribable or crazier feeling than the one I get with you. The way my heart skips a beat, or when I play with my hairband on my wrist. The skip in my step , while a sway my handbag. I’d often go shy, not knowing what to say or even the inability to keep eye contact, without getting lost. I get captivated when you enlighten me with new knowledge. There’s always a smile, whenever you like my social media posts. My heart lights up when you smile. It even flutters when your glance is in my direction.

There would be mutual happiness, if we share the same thoughts.Many people think I wouldn’t be happy if this was pursued. I guess you could see this as an open letter. I don’t know if you’d read this, but if you have, this is basically my heart on my sleeve.

If this is all in my imagination, I would rather live in my imaginary domain. In my mind, it’s just a crush. It has to be, but my heart questions it. Nothing could ever happen, even if I dream. What woman wouldn’t want an intelligent man. So I’ll use this as a permanent account, so I can relive feelings that I can never pursue.

Beauty and the Beast: Film Review.

I don’t think I’ve met anyone yet, who wasn’t excited for this Disney remake. Beauty and the Beast is my top disney film. I have always loved this musical. So much so, I’ve seen this film twice. I have the soundtrack on repeat, the songs stuck in my head. I’m not going to post any spoilers about the film here.

This film is visually stunning. The production team did a phenomenal job. Emma Watson did a good job as Belle. Keeping the innocence in her character, with a bit of sassy. Especially with her interactions with Gaston. I cannot imagine anyone else but Luke Evans in this role. Not only do I find him really handsome as Gaston. His parts of the movie were my favourite. Dan Stevens portrayal as the beast/prince was fantastic. I really preferred him more as the beast though. Josh Gad as LeFou was mindblowing. He did an amazing job, as Disney’s first gay character, though in my opinion, I didn’t really see it.

This Disney remake is set to pave the way for a number of more live action remakes. I honestly can’t wait! I definitely recommend watching Beauty and the Beast. I saw it twice and would happily watch it many more times. Let me know your opinions on the film, via social media.

Get Out: Film Review.

As soon as I saw the trailer to this, the first time, I knew I had to watch it. I’m a fan of the horror films that Blumhouse produces. The Gift and Insidious are two of my favourites. I did really like Get Out. I can see how it made so much money on it’s opening weekend. As all my film reviews, I will try my best to not post spoilers.

Obviously a lot of commendation goes to Jordan Peele, it’s an amazing film for a first directorial debut. It’s set the bar high, especially when it was filmed in just 28 days. I also did read about some of the backlash, when Daniel Kaluuya was casted, but I must say I can’t imagine anyone else doing a better job. Allison Williams also did a good job in her first feature movie. As well as all the cast and crew that’s made this film possible.

Plus the twist in the film, was cleverly put in. It also had a few funny moments in, to add a break from the seriousness of the film. It’s so cleverly and beautifully made. I highly recommend watching this film, to all. I can’t praise it enough. I’ll happily rewatch it over and over again. Let me know what your thoughts and opinions on Get Out.

Kong: Skull Island: Film Review.

As is usually how I get roped into watching new films, is the trailer being so exceptionally good. Although I’ve noticed a increasing pattern, that I have with Warner Bros’ produced films. Where their trailers are really great to get the views in, but they butcher the rest of the film. It’s the reason behind the fact I’m not excited for any DC film, or now King Arthur.

That went a little off topic, but back to Kong. I didn’t have high hopes for this, as past Kong films haven’t been that good. Saying that this one, was visually stunning, especially around the island. The CGI effects with the various larger scale animals was brilliantly done. Avoiding spoilers, but the twist in the story was great, and unseen. The cast and crew did a great job, it turned out to be quite the heartwarming video. Though there could be more of certain characters, and it could do without the romantic interest tone between Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston. Samuel L JAckson portrayed the hell bent army officer so well.

I saw this film in 3D. Which added depth (no pun intended). I would totally recommend this film. Definitely the best Kong film, I’ve ever seen.

Logan: Film Review 📽

Seeings two of my favourite comics come from Marvel, (Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men). I clearly had to watch Logan, being a part of the X-Men franchise. Especially when I’ve seen all the tv series, films and frequently reading the books. When I was younger, my sister and I used to pretend to be mutants from X-Men.

The entire film, has a lot more of a darker presence, then past X-Men films. I like to think of it as an epic finale to the movie franchise. I won’t post about the plot or any spoilers, as it’s still new out, but I feel like I need to warn hardcore X-Men fans, that this will make you cry. I was not emotionally prepared for the amount of tears I shed last night, while I watched Logan.

I can not think of a better actor to portray Wolverine, then Hugh Jackman. To be fair the same goes to Patrick Stewart’s portrayal of Professor Charles Xavier. I think knowing this will be the last time they would play these characters, made it so sad. Every cast and crew member done a phenomenal job, deserves a lot of credit.

I would totally recommend this film to everyone. Certainly for X-Men fans, but also just the action alone would keep a action film fan pleased. Let me know what you think via twitter: @RebeccaKLxo

A Cure For Wellness: Film Review.

I’m actually excited to be finally able to do this review. I was going to write this review back on Saturday, but due to the most infuriating cinema going experience, I missed chunks of the film. So I couldn’t do a well rounded review missing chunks of the film. So this called for a second viewing. Being a huge horror fan, and knowing that this would be Gore Verbinski’s first horror film in 15 years. With The Ring in 2002, being so well made, this made for high hopes. My first look at the trailer was sent to me on facebook, by my mother. A Cure For Wellness is rated an 18.

This film isn’t really a horror, more of a psychological thriller. The plot is confusing if you are not investing all your time to the film. In my opinion the film plays on interesting premises, such as immortality, disease, health and mental wellbeing. As well as being a visually spectacular movie. It’s a beautifully made film. The cast and crew done a phenomenal job. Dane DeHaan has done a fantastic job as the lead actor, with his portrayal of a workaholic wall street broker. Definitely one to watch out for. Mia Goth did a great job as Hannah. Even with such a serious matter at the end of her part, with the incest rape matter.

It has it’s twist and turns, but It always kept me hooked. I’ll totally watch it again! Definitely my favourite film of this genre so far of 2017.

Let me know what you thought of this film through twitter. I do highly recommend this film to all.

What I’ve Learnt The Past Year.

A week ago, I have officially been driving for a year. I still can’t believe this time two years ago, I would of been still learning this life skill. I consider this my biggest goal, I’ve accomplished in my life. I appreciate it more as I wasn’t fortunate enough to have parents that could solely pay for everything from lessons, tests to the actual car. I have nothing against the individuals who do have this. In my opinion, I appreciate what I have more, because I worked for it. During this past year I have learnt a lot.

One of the things I’ve learnt is that I don’t enjoy driving. I thought while I was learning that I’d love the freedom of being able to drive and it is freeing. I will drive when I need too, that doesn’t bother me. But at the same time it’s beyond stressful. At times it feels like anyone’s way on the road, and I’ve noticed a lot of selfish drivers on the road. Road rage is a very real feeling.

It has given me access to be able to do things I never thought I could. I can now travel to photo shoots, gain inspiration for new blog posts, shopping in the city centre and pageants… etc… No more relying on public transport. Also I can now travel to work, and travel back safely after late night shifts. My car is like my own personal space. I love buying treats for my car, from adorable air fresheners to stickers.

I also love my car. I’ve had a lot of comments about my car, mainly on how I can afford it. The answer is that I work damn hard, to be able to afford my car myself. I own a 2013 Ford Fiesta in silver. It has practicality with its five doors, and a decent size boot space. Ready for when the boyfriend and I move into the children stage of our relationship. Being able to keep the same car for years, without worrying about needing another car in the future.

My future car goals is a Mustang. Everyone close to me, knows how much I’m in love with the beauty of those cars. There’s always a post every now and then on my instagram: rebeccaklxo.
