The Addams Family Musical 

This past Sunday afternoon I had 2 tickets to visit the Wales Millennium Center to watch The Addams Family Musical. It’s probably been the best decision I’ve made in weeks and I’m so pleased with picking this musical to see with Mum who has never been to a show before! 

I’ve been an avid fan of The Addams Family for as long as I can remember and when I found out that there was a musical I couldn’t wait to go. I wasn’t sure if I’d actually be able to see it due to my trip to New York but since I’m back I knew I wanted to go and I was determined. 

My main reason for wanting to see this show specifically was 1. Because I love the story, movies and TV series. 2. Carrie Fletcher is one of my favourite Youtubers/Authors and the sister of Tom Fletcher from my favourite band, McFly. 


The performance was outstanding and I especially loved that it was based when Wednesday was a lot older. The actors played the roles so well and I was so impressed with Samantha Womack as before I went I couldn’t stop picturing her as Ronnie Mitchell. It was a mixture of emotions and I felt like I couldn’t take my eyes off it for the whole show. The humour was dark but so funny and it had such a different twist to it than the movies/TV series.

It’s been my favourite musical so far and I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Favourite Films of 2017.. So Far

I won’t lie to you but I don’t watch many films at all I’m more of a TV series type of girl, simply because I grow so attached to the characters. However, this year (so far) I’ve seen a few decent ones that I thought deserved mentioning. I don’t ever really go to the cinema as the one in Aberystwyth is an a small, 1 screen cinema which only shows 1 movie a day (sometimes 2) at 7:30pm. In fact, it’s so old fashioned it does intervals during the adverts. Whenever I go there I feel like I’m in the 50s! 

The movies I have picked may not have necessarily been released in 2017 but they are definitely ones that I have recently seen and thoroughly enjoyed.

I’ll start this post with Logan, the 4th movie in the Wolverine franchise. I’ve been a fan of X-Men and Wolverine for as long as I can remember and I think I’ll always love them. I went ahead with my brothers to watch Logan when it was first released and I loved it but I was totally heartbroken to know it’s the last movie Hugh Jackman will ever do as Logan. He was incredible and he done the franchise so much justice with the way he acted was just outstanding. The story couldn’t have ended any better and I love that the writers have left the opportunity for a follow through with his daughter’s story (sorry for the spoiler).

Next is Hidden Figures which I’ve actually already done a review on. It was breath taking and the story truly brings so much knowledge and information to the world. It’s an outstanding story based on 3 black women who worked for NASA throughout the difficult times in 1960’s. It’s the type of movie I want the next generation to be aware of, the story isn’t just a story. It’s real life, it happened and it changed the way we see the world today.

Nerve (has now been put on Netflix) is in a totally different genre to the other two movies but it was excellent. So good that it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole time I was watching it. It stars Dave Franco and Emma Roberts who are players in the game Nerve. Nerve is a game that asks them to do different (not always legal or safe) activities throughout the evening to win.  It’s definitely a thriller and I couldn’t help being scared for the characters even though I knew it was a movie, I felt like it was real.

Eye in the Sky is a fantastic tribute to Alan Rickman that brings to life a the story of a military mission in Kenya. It describes the difficulties that are faced and the decisions that are to be made to capture one of the most wanted women in the world. It was so inspirational to watch and made me realise how lucky I am to be isolated from the horrible things that happen in this world. Also how fortunate I am to live in a much safer place. I couldn’t stop crying at this film and I would recommend to everybody if you love an action film.

Now, how can I not incredible the wonderful Beauty and the Beast? It was outstanding. The magic was literally brought to life and it felt so real. Emma Watson was a wonderful choice for Belle, she was beautiful. I loved this movie more than any of the recent Disney remakes (hated Cinderella).

I’ve been a huge fan of the Fast and Furious franchise for as long as I can remember. I’ve loved every film and find them so enjoyable and always have. With that in mind, The Fate of the Furious was no different. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t my absolute favourite out of them all but it’s definitely up there for action scenes. It was totally different watching it and not having Paul Walker show up did put a little downer on it, but it’s still a fantastic movie. 

Finally, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Admittedly, I preferred the soundtrack in Vol. 1 but I actually preferred the story in the second. It’s such an easy watch, the characters are fantastic, the comedy and action are brilliant and the overall film is just wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed, how could I not? Chris Pratt is gorgeous!

There we have my favourite movies that I’ve seen in 2017! Recommend me some of yours and I’ll give them a watch. In the meantime, check out my social media:

Review: Riverdale

Riverdale has been the hype recently and along with so many other’s, I watched it. I found out that it was going to be a newly released show last November and without a doubt, I knew I would watch it. I crave cheesy, drama filled, romantic TV shows, I cant help myself. So, I watched the trailer, forgot about it and then it began in January. So, season 1 came and passed and after spending 13 episodes watching it, I can finally give you my full review on this show. 

Is it worth the watch? I think so. If I’m totally honest, I was more interested in the story line of Jughead, Archie, Veronica and Betty than the murder of Jason Blossom, although I understood the point of Jason’s story line. However, as a show I think it’s brilliant and definitely could replace my love for The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf (there isn’t any supernatural behaviour in Riverdale though).  

It took me 4 episodes to actually enjoy the show. That’s mainly because it was only introducing the character’s and setting the plot though. So nothing to do with the show exactly as the introduction is totally necessary. I do have favourites in Riverdale and my goodness, I really do look forward to seeing Cole Sprouse every single week. He play’s Jughead so well and has definitely drifted from his earlier work on Disney Channel. He’s fantastic as an actor and absolutely gorgeous. Where can I get one? Or two?


I’m also incredibly interested in the Cooper family, they just seem to have so many secrets and I want to know them all. However, Betty definitely seems like a totally different person in comparison to her parents. 

I particularly love this 50s vibe that is has. I didn’t quite understand it at first, then found out that it’s because the comics were set in this time and just love that the show has stuck to this. The vibe is fantastic, the scenes are excellent and the cast couldn’t be any better.

I can see the next season being even better than the first and it’s been said that season 2 will have 22 episodes rather than 13! Wahoo. I thoroughly enjoyed this show and I can’t wait to see what hold’s for Jughead and Betty and to also finally see what drama Veronica’s dad brings to the town.

10 Thing I’ve Learned From Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has become a worldwide success and one of the most influential women in the entertainment industry. She is known for her work as a stand-up comedian, actress, producer, director and writer and the woman  with the lower back tattoo. She’s utterly fantastic, her experiences throughout her life have been shown in her book and after reading it I couldn’t help but share some of my favourite quotes from it. She’s brilliant and having been a fan of her work for sometime now I’ve learned a few things from her. So here we have it, 10 things I’ve learned fr Amy Schumer. Enjoy!

“I’m a flawed fuckup and I haven’t figured anything out, so I have no words of wisdom to offer you.” 

We’re human. It’s totally acceptable to be a fuckup on occasions and make mistakes but that’s okay because there are 7 billion people in the world who do the exact same thing. 

“Never let a magazine or dating site or matchmaker monster tell them they’re in a lower bracket of desirability because of their age, weight, face or sense of humour”

Regardless of your appearance you deserve to be treated with the same respect as everybody else. Nobody was born looking the same (except identical twins) and if I’m totally honest, I don’t want to be a size 4 model. Be happy with who you have, love yourself.

“You don’t need a man, boy or self-proclaimed love expert to tell you your worth”

We are all worthy of kindness, love and respect. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice for people to acknowledge my worth but I don’t need it. I know I’m valued and I deserve to be just like everybody else. 
“You are hot and the person who loves you won’t notice 10 extra pounds. I promise”

Weight doesn’t determine love or worth. You can lose or gain pounds and still be an asshole, it’s who you are that counts.

“He was the most beautiful man I had ever seen, and I was immediately turned on just looking at him. Quick side note: THAT NEVER FUCKING HAPPENS. Every day, men look at women walk by in skirts and tight jeans and get tiny erections, or at the very least some sort of arousal. But for women it’s a rare occurrence to see a dude and think, dayummmmm!” 

For all those men who think that all woman walk around admiring every man they see. You’re wrong. Not once have I walked down the street and thought about how much I wanted to rip his clothes off. It doesn’t happen, it’s not a lynks deodorant advert.

“When you get older and wiser, you get your confidence from within, not from the person you are having sex with” 

Do I have to explain anymore from this quote? She nailed it on the head. You’re the only person who can change your confidence.

“You become a woman the first time you get fitted for a bra and realise you’ve been wearing the wrong size your whole fucking life”

I was 20 years old. 20! Once I had been measured I realised I was wearing the wrong size for so long. No wonder I hated bras so much.

“We girls are conditioned to the no we should hold out or we’d be a labelled a slut”

Girls can have sex as much as guys can. What differences does it make? The number of people that women or men have slept with does not determine how valued they are by others. 

“Isn’t it sad that when a girl says she was sexually assaulted, our first instinct is to think she’s probably lying” 

Sexual assault is not something to be joked about or used as a lie. So many women and men experience sexual assault and it’s pushed aside because of other people’s ignorance. 

“There is nothing better than being your own boss. Well, there is, actually: not having to work at all”

I couldn’t think of anything better than being my own boss and eventually this is something I’ll achieve. How could you not want to be in control of your working hours and how your work load can influence others around you. 

I personally think Amy Schumer is more real than most understand. I’m all of these quotes she points out obvious statements but not that obvious to most of society.

The OA // Worth Watching?

I tend to mix between books and TV series quite often and after reading several books I decided it was time to start watching something new. So as I do, I headed to Netflix and seen that they had added some new shows and movies and among all the options I came across The OA remembering that so many people had been talking about it on Twitter I made the choice to give it a go. It’s newly released with only 1 series and 8 1 hour episodes.


Prairie Johnson had been missing for 7 years until she was spotted jumping off a bridge. Despite having been blind due to an accident as a child she could see. Prairie now goes by ‘The OA’ instead of her adoptive name and refuses to share any information from her disappearance. In hopes to save others like her she assembles a team of 5 to help her find others who have been experiencing the same situation as her. 


So is it worth watching? definitely! I was 12 minutes into the first episode and totally hooked. You think, how is it possible to be to into a show only 12 minutes in? Well, it’s different. Totally different to any other show I’ve ever seen. The OA’s story is like no other and is totally unique which made me even more interested in the rest of her story. Throughout series one you met new characters who bring the story to life and allow you to understand more about the situation. One specific character (a scientist, I won’t spoil it!) really interested me the most as he was someone who could definitely exist in this world. An utter nut job, crazy weird guy.

I think this show is brilliant and I can’t wait for season 2! You guys should definitely watch it and let me know what you think. You’ll definitely like this show if you’ve watched Stranger Things.

My favourite Disney films 

I’m an avid Disney fan, how can you not be? But I definitely have my favourites just like everybody. In fact, I have 5 favourite Disney films that I repeatedly watch and fall in love with every single time. I’ve been collecting the Disney classics this year and my collection is very slowly expanding. I’m hoping Santa brings me a few of my favourites this year.


Disney has always been a huge part of my life since childhood and having been the younger sister of two older brothers, I often got to choose what we would watch and without fail, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was always my first choice. I loved it, my favourite drawf is Sleepy because he reminds me so much of myself. I love a good nap. Snow White is my favourite Disney princess and I just like how innocent she is also the youngest of all the princesses. This was and always been my overall favourite Disney film.

My second favourite is Big Hero Six. Having recently been released I wasn’t that fussed on watching it but once I did I was so overwhelmed with the story. It wasn’t your traditional Disney film and it actually represented the feelings and emotions of grief and depression through loss of a loved one. It’s brilliant and it also makes me a lot happier that Fall Out Boy sang the ending song.

My next favourite is The Aristocats. I bloody love this film which is surprising since I’m not an animal lover and especially not cats. However this film so freaking cute, Marie is my favourite because she’s full of so much attitude and sass. I actually first saw this when I was 16, definitely not a childhood love but it’s grown on me and now it’s the film I will always watch when I feel unwell.

My fourth favourite is Frozen. Some of you may really dislike this option but I don’t care. This film is bloody great, it’s not about romantic love but sibling love. It’s the total opposite to the normal Disney film and I think that’s what brings so much character this film. Olaf is so cute and bubbly, I want him in my life.

My final favourite is Cool Running’s. It’s not animated and is actually based on the true story of the Olympic Jamaican bobsledders. It’s utterly fantastic and so funny. I first watched this with my brothers when I was a kid and now I can’t even count how many times this film has been watched by me and made me bubble with love and happiness. It made me want a lucky egg for so long.

There we have my top 5 favourite Disney films. What’s yours? Let me know!
