Sunday Spotlight - 29th December 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…


We’ve spent months preparing for it, yet in just a few hours it’s been and gone. I hate how quickly it flies by, but for this week I’ve tried to make sure I really enjoy it as much as I can. I’ll do a separate post about my Christmas, so for now I’ll leave you with a festive photo…

Cinema times

I don’t get to go to the cinema that often, which is a real shame as it’s one of my favourite things to do. It’s just so darn expensive! But there’s nothing better than finding the right seats then nestling down in front of the big screen, full of anticipation for the film you’re about to see. One of my favourite parts is actually the trailers before the movie, just so I can make a mental note of all the new films I’d like to see!

This week, I’ve somehow managed to have two cinema trips – I’m obviously making up for lost time! My first trip was with one of my best friends, who is home from Dubai for Christmas. We have a tradition of going to see a Christmas film every year, and this year we chose to go and see ‘Frozen,’ which was fantastic (I wouldn’t expect any less from Disney!) I’m already excited for when it’s released on DVD and can’t get the ‘Do you want to build a snowman?’ song out of my head!

Then, on Boxing Day, my Dad asked me if I’d like to go to the cinema with him. Being part of a large family, I never really do anything just my Dad and I, so it was lovely to have some Daddy Daughter time. He chose for us to see ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,’ with Adam Sandler. It wasn’t my favourite film, but it was good and the locations they shot in were just stunning. My Dad loved it, so a fairly successful trip in my opinion. And now I’m planning all the films I want to see in 2014 – The Lego Movie and the new Muppets film are fairly high on my list!

Sales bargains

I’m a sucker for a ‘Sale’ sign and as much as I try to restrain myself, it never really works! I did go into town a few days after Christmas to have a mooch around, but to be honest I didn’t really find much. I can’t cope with the hoards of people and having to sift through row upon row of mismatched outfits, just to find something in my size. Online sale shopping is much more me. You can browse from the comfort of your own home, search for exactly what you want to look for and filter out all the stuff that doesn’t interest you. I’ve decided this year to just go for a select few items, rather than going crazy buying things I don’t really want or need. I’ve managed to order myself a Blu-Ray player that connects to the Internet from John Lewis and a nice new burgundy hoody from Jack Wills, both at knockdown prices. Now I’m just waiting for the postman to knock on my door with them!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
