9 songs

I'm trying to compile some sort of Tracks of my Years piece. It's taking me sooooo long! Doesn't help that my Spotify favourites playlist is very close to one thousand songs. So I'm going to hit shuffle on my Spotify for a little series called "9 songs" and see if this helps me. You can also see my varied taste in music too :D

Moby - Honey

The Walkmen - The Rat

Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

Alanis Morissette - Hand In My Pocket

Marilyn Manson - Personal Jesus

Pink - Please Don't Leave Me

The Bamboos - I Got Burned

ABBA - Lay All Your Love On Me

Tyler Hilton - Jenny

5 films I have loved recently

I have had a bit of a 'movie time' recently, these are five that I have really enjoyed and I recommend them to you to see too. They are a bit of a mix of stuff though so you might not like them all.... I just have a varied taste!

American Sniper

After seeing the trailer I wasn't that sure I wanted to see it because there's a scene in it that's a bit too real for me. Yes, the trailer even made me weep a little. I know you want this sort of film to be real but yeah... ok I'll shut up now! But seriously, see it.

 

The Equalizer

Everybody loves a Denzel Washington film. This is the film remake of the TV series of the same name from the 80's with Edward Woodward. There is talk of a sequel film too.

 

Big Hero 6

Oh how I love Baymax, this lovable marshmallow, huge robot. You'll laugh and cry.

You'll also never be able to do a "fist pump" handshake without... copying Baymax. I'm saying no more :D

 

Whiplash

I saw the trailer for this SO many times on various adverts on apps and blogs. I assumed because it was getting that push that it wasn't good, wrong! So very wrong. You'll understand why you need to be fit to be a drummer and you'll still want to be one!


The Best Of Me

All I will say, tissues! Two boxes.

 

Have you seen any of these? What else have you been watching?

New stationery favourites

I got some lovely new stationery bits and bobs for Christmas and I will be doing a more in-depth look and reviews on everything. So this is just a little tease...





I've also been trying out the Moldiv app, see the fancy images above. Me likey (so far!)

Down the rabbit hole...

I went through a stage of collecting stamps... years ago though! Now it's very rare to get a letter in the post, let alone it having a stamp you'd want to collect and keep. I do look out for the collectible sets that the Royal Mail do and I noticed the Alice in Wonderland set.

I've always been a big fan of the book and there is still something so intriguing about falling down that rabbit hole like Alice did. Whilst I probably won't get the stamps because I actually really like the idea of getting the postcard set, so much so that I've ordered them right now. I haven't really thought about what I will do with them, I will keep them for a while because I've bought them for me. In saying that though, I am going to start writing snail mail letters so possibly over time they may get sent out in little packages like that I guess.

Do you collect stamps? Do you look out for the collectible sets?
