My life in photos: January 2017

We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there's still 11 months to go. Here's a look at my month in photos. 1. I was gutted when… Continue reading My life in photos: January 2017

Item of the day: The Hateful Eight steelbook bluray from HMV

We missed The Hateful Eight in cinemas (boo - another perk of parenthood!) and I can't wait to catch it on DVD. When you know a film is a good 'un, you've gotta go for a steelbook bluray. This bad boy is an HMV exclusive and you're gonna want to pre-order it. It's due for… Continue reading Item of the day: The Hateful Eight steelbook bluray from HMV

My Christmas list

Last week I shared Jenson's Christmas list and this week I'm sharing my growing list/Pinterest board. My birthday is two months away and Luke, the lovely boyfriend that he is, has already started shopping, so I'm not being that much of an eager beaver by putting together a Pinterest list of favourites for friends and… Continue reading My Christmas list

Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

I don't buy a lot of DVDs these days (I used to be quite addicted - we have about 1,000) but when I do I'm all about the steelbook blurays. And why wouldn't I be? They're a bit special and totally appeal to the film geek in me. My new faves at the mo are… Continue reading Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

Item of the day: Star Wars steelbook blurays from HMV

Steelbook editions can make otherwise unappealing films suddenly very attractive. It pains me to say this, as a film geek, that I have never seen the original Star Wars trilogy. Don't worry, I plan on rectifying this before the release of JJ Abrams' flick and this steelbook bluray collection from HMV has definitely caught my… Continue reading Item of the day: Star Wars steelbook blurays from HMV

Item of the day: Batman ’66 bluray

The Boyfriend and I are both Batman fans but we have to agree to disagree when it comes to the 1960s TV show. It was a pre-school staple in my house growing up - my brother and I watched it over breakfast every morning. I still have a soft spot for the camp movies too.… Continue reading Item of the day: Batman ’66 bluray

Top ten steelbooks from Zavvi

I love steelbooks. Given the option, if I'm buying a new release, I'll get the super-duper, super-sexy bluray steelbook every time. If you plan on owning a film, you might as well go for the best version going. Plus the steelbooks look so damn awesome if (like me) you choose to make your DVD collection… Continue reading Top ten steelbooks from Zavvi
