My week 2

It’s been a cold week! As of today, it’s one week before Christmas and I can’t wait! Next saturday I’ll be driving home and spending a few days with the family 🙂 But, first of all – this week:

This is George. He lives on my desk at work. I got him on holiday in “Japan” at Disney’s Epcot and he stands for success. Two days later, I got offered my full time career job. The bf reckons he’s lucky and I think so too.

It was the bf’s 24th birthday this week and how cool is this cake that his housemate made? Polka dots!

The ultimate action shot of him blowing out his candles.

Really hard to get a pic, but here’s the best I could get of the falling snow that was going all day while I was at work. Please don’t let me get snowed out!

I went to the Trafford centre on wednesday to get the last of my christmas presents and managed all but one, as well as this lovely stash for myself. It was pay day. Nail varnish binge anyone? Also, I may have bought the zara skull tee from my top ten week 1 🙂

My computer at work is rather slow so I may have gotten a bit frustrated and drawn an angry little bird. I name him Artie. 
 
How was your week? Are you looking forward to Christmas?

Films I have not seen this year (shame on me)

I love going to the cinema, but there have been a few films I have missed out on this year. Mainly for being too girly for my friends. And probably because I used up four of those times seeing the final Harry Potter film (it’s the last one damn you!).
 
Have you seen any of these?
 
Bridesmaids

I really wanted to see this as it looked so funny. If I saw my mum more just the two of us, I would have seen it with her. She dragged my dad to see it and he wasn’t impressed, lol. I love comedy films and there aren’t enough good ones where all the main characters are female. 
 
One Day

I think apart from no one wanting to see this with me, the reason I did not see this was because I know how it ends and it is not particularly cheerful. I read the book and really liked it until the end where I got angry at the author. 
 
But I would be interested to see how they handled the timescale of the story in the film in terms of fashion and how the actors age. I heard the film was not that great though. Any thoughts?
 
The Help

I had the book in my hands I read the first couple of pages but I lent the book to my teenage cousin because she said it looked good and she doesn’t read too much. I like to know that young people are still reading so I do my part in encouraging it. 
 
I’m really interested to see the film because I won’t be getting the book back for a while because I think my mum has it now and she doesn’t live in the UK. It looks like an interesting story and I really want to see how Emma Stone does in her role since all I’ve seen her in are comedies. 
 
My week with Marilyn

I know this is still in the cinema but I doubt I’ll get to see it before it comes out on DVD. Being a lover of old black and white films and an owner of Some Like It Hot (if you are a comedy or marilyn fan, you MUST see this), I want to see how they portray Marilyn in this film. Can’t really put it into words why exactly but I just really want to see this film. Have you seen it yet? What did you think of it?
 
How has 2011 been for the cinema do you think?

My week

I love looking at other people’s week in photos so I am attempting to do one of my own. Check it out:

As a present to myself, I bought the Harry Potter box set which is the DVD and Blue-ray copies of all 8 films! It is so beautiful! I don’t have a blue ray player as of yet, but I do plan on getting one when I have my own place next year. It’s an investment I like to think, so I will never have to buy another Harry Potter film ever again 🙂

When I first saw this chocolate that came out of my Hello Kitty advent calendar, my first thought was Darth Vader. I’m such a geek. I didn’t actually figure out that it was actually a shepherd until lunchtime at work. In my defence, my bf also thought Darth Vader. At least we have each other!

Mince pie ice cream! I loved the flavour and the pastry bits but was not a fan of the mince pie filling that was in there too. Was quite bitty if that makes any sense. The actual ice cream had enough of the mince pie flavour for me. Any one else tried this?

My beautiful skirt that I love. Stood out a bit in the office (especially since I was wearing teal blue tights as well) but I don’t care 🙂

Went for the staff Christmas do to Akbar’s indian restaurant in Castlefield in the centre of Manchester which I highly recommend. It was amazing. Check out the size of the naan bread!

We then went to Duke’s which is also in Castlefield. I’ve never been out in Castlefield but it was a good night. I loved the look of the bar at Dukes and it was all decorated for Christmas 🙂
How was your week?
