2015 - the perfect year for movies

Hello friends! :)

After weeks and months of not going to the cinema, I went on Thursday to see the new Marvel film Avengers: Age of Ultron  and it was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! I love Marvel so much but wow, they really out-did themselves. I loved the twns Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch and I loved that we were given a more detailed story for Hawkeye, played by Jeremy Renner. I can't wait for Infinity War parts 1 & 2, which will include everything in the current Marvel universe - the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thanos, and possibly Spiderman. Going to be AH-MA-ZIIINNNGGGG.

I then went to see the live action version of Cinderella yesterday, which again was amazing, but obviously in a different way. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White will never be one of my favourite original Disney princess films because there is so little substance to the "true love". But the writers of the live action Cinderella were obviously aware of this and gave some back story to Cinderella and Prince Charming. They meet before the ball in the woods and, during the ball, they dance but also talk and get to know each other. It was absolutely adorable and I'm now super excited for Beauty and the Beast, as it's my favourite Disney princess film (as well as Mulan) and the cast that's been announced so far is perfect.

So those are the films I've seen. But there are so many more coming out this year that I'm excited for.

Jurassic World with Chris Pratt - *swoon* - is out June 12th, which I'm so excited for. I loved the Jurassic Park trilogy growing up and I'm so excited for this new one.

Ant-Man with Paul Rudd is out July 17th, which looks hilarious and also, Marvel.

Fantastic Four with Miles Teller is out 7th August, which is going to be awesome! Again, I loved the previous film as a child and I'm super excited for the reboot.

Mockingjay Pt. 2 with the best cast in the world comes out around 20th November, which I just ashjgsfashf no words.


I'm pretty happy. I'm super excited. And I just can't wait to see all these films.

2015 is going to be a year filled with cinema trips and happy tears.

Love you all loads ♥

i can never think of post titles...

Hi guys!

I know it's been a while, but I've been working hard for my exams and haven't had much time for doing things that I love - I haven't read, slept solidly, done anything with my friends that didn't include revision in a long, looonnngggg time. The majority of my holidays have been pajama days - which I am no complaining about! - and I think I've left the house for something that wasn't revision based a total of once. And then I came straight home and did revision with the friend.

I have no life anymore. :0

And with all of this work, I also have homework, tests, controlled assessments and work experience. Plus more non-academic things, like..... actually, I can't think of anything non-academic that I've been doing a lot lately. If I've ever had a break from revision, it's either been to eat, to sleep, or a one-off hour or so when we went on a food shop. Oh dear....

I'll never stop though - I want and need the good grades, and I'm willing to have a non-existent social life if it means As and A*s.

Because of the constant revision, I've been listening to a lot of music (I've also started going on jogs just to get out of the house. Whhaaattt????? Bethan doing exercise?! :0 ). I've recently been loving James Bay's album Chaos and the Calm. There are so many great songs on that album - I love them all. My three favourites are down below - please have a little listen, as they are beaaauutttiiful songs.

Best Fake Smile

Clocks Go Forward

Need The Sun To Break

Just check out his album, it's so beautiful ♥

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! I had a very last-minute, make-shift Easter egg hunt, where we couldn't find any small chocolate eggs, so wrapped up bundles of mini eggs in tin foil, which was a lot of fun. :)

After finishing PLL (I finished it the day of the finale - OH MY GOD IF YOU WATCH PLL CAN WE TALK IN THE COMMENTS BELOW BECAUSE I NEED TO DISCUSS) I needed something to fill the void of mindless binge-watching when I'm too tired to do anything else. So I've recently started watching New Girl, and it's so cute and so funny!!! I love Nick and Jess together sososososososo much ♥ I'm currently on Season 3 and I'm really really enjoying it. :) Do any of you guys watch PLL? Or New Girl? Or both?

Love you guys ♥
