Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 // Review

So while visiting my Dad this weekend we decided to take a trip to the cinema, just to spice up your Saturday night. Knowing that I love the Hunger Games and it had just come out, going to see the latest installment really was a no brainer! 

For those of my readers who haven't heard of this movie series, it originally started out as a trilology of books by author Suzanne Collins! Now the books were obviously a hit as the film industry decided that it needed to be made into a film .

The books are based on a country known as Panem, which consists of the Capitol and the 12 (previously 13) districts. Where due to a rebellion the districts are forced to take part in the Hunger Games. A game were one boy and one girl from every district compete in a kill or be killed type games. Twenty four go into the games but only one will come out. Any boy or girl aged 12-18 could be picked at random to compete.  The story focuses on Katiness Everdeen a 16 year old girl, who's is just trying to take care of her mum and little sister.

Anyway on to the Mockingjay Part 1, which sees the return of stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutchinson. As well as the arrival of Julianne Moore and Evan Ross. All these actors played their roles superb within this installment. The audience even got to see a part of Katness that hasn't been displayed yet. Even the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman played his role well.

Now one thing you guys should know is that I love this series the books captivated me and so far the movies haven't let me down. Saying that I must admit, if I'm honest, that this installment of the third book did lack some action. Now anyone who has read the books will know that the first half of the last book does not contain many action scenes. I will admit that there were a couple small action scenes that did satisfy that action bug inside me.

I even asked my Dad what he thought and he said that he did like it and it was lacking in action.  However he also said that it's a must see for anyone who is following the Hunger games movie series. I will admit that I agree whole heartedly.

Let me know what you thought of the movie, if you have seen it or if you plan to see it.

Until next time

Lush Haul

Hello My Lovely Readers,
Now I am sure we have all walked past a Lush shop at least once in our lives! When I was younger and still in my teens I have to say I had no clue what they sold or even anything apart from it smelt amazing when I walked past it. Then I started watching YouTube Beauty Gurus and finally found out about the shop and it has taken me a long time until I finally stepped into the shop.

 Now I immediately liked the shop, apart from the fact that I went in around Christmas so the shop was bursting with live. I found the staff super helpful and even managed to smell some of the products I had heard raved about in the many You Tube videos I have watched.  I knew I wanted to try some products.  The staffs in the shop in Southampton were super helpful, they helped me pick out products just by knowing what kind of smells I like. I did like the shop so much that I ended up back in there shortly before new year.

The first one I wanted to try was a Lip Scrub and I picked one up in Popcorn for the pure reason that I love popcorn. I was excited when I first used it and had high expectations. It truly lived up to those expectations except I wasn’t a fan of the taste but it isn’t and it certainly hasn’t put me off. My lips just feel super smooth once I have used this.

The second product I picked up was a Butterball bath ballistic, I had heard people rave about this product and sadly it’s still sat in my draw at home just waiting for me to use it. But it did smell amazing when I gave it a good smell in the shop, which is why it ended up in my basket.

The third product I picked up was a Creamy Candy Bath bubble bar slice; it’s a mouthful for sure. Now for a bubble bar you crumble it under running water and I did use this product. I loved the smell of it and it gave my bath a pink tinge which I also loved.  I adored so much I have since been back and brought another one.  My mum even loved this one.

The fourth and final product I picked up in Lush was a shampoo. Now I have a weird thing going on with my scalp which means I can’t use normal shampoo, it’s usually the medicated kind. Nothing terrible but not fun. I picked up the Rehab shampoo which on the staff of the shop said was good for scalp conditions. I did like shampoo and it smelt considerably better than any of the medicated stuff I have used.

So there you have it a girl’s discovery of Lush. So let me know what products you like to buy from this shop. Let me know if you recommend any products would love an excuse to go back into Lush and spend more money to pamper myself.

Until Next Time
