I went to see Going the Distance last night with my new Bridcard (if you don’t live in Bridlington you won’t get it) and a lovely 241 offer meant we got to see it for £3. Bargain.
Anyway absolutely loved the film, and all it’s movie-like qualities. Boy meets girl, don’t mean to fall in love but do, promise to make a long distance relationship work, wear nice clothes, have sex on table, break up, meet again, happy ever after. You can see it coming a mile off so don’t think I’ve ruined the film for you, but it’s still worth a watch purely for the dry-humping.
I do believe this happened in “real (Hollywood) life” with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, or something like that. She totally rocked out in this film and whoever styled her should win an award. I particularly love the claw earrings towards the end.
One thing that I really enjoyed was the featured band, The Boxer Rebellion. I love it when movies do that, when it’s not always just about the storyline, it’s also about what makes the setting seem more real and likeable, including great music. It was the same with (500) Days of Summer, I <3 that soundtrack.
As soon as I got out of my seat I said I’m Googling the band, they will be in my iTunes by the end of the week. Let me tell you I’ve had to purchase the CD version (wtf is a CD?!) and it’s not going to arrive until next week, thanks for that Amazon. I hope I will like the other tracks, if anyone has heard The Boxer Rebellion’s music tell me your thoughts.
For now here is a good ol’ video from Youtube, their newest single If You Run.
Oh and also I don’t know why I haven’t seen the baby panda sneezing video but it was in there it was hilarious. Sorry I’m a bit late with that.
I have several unwritten rules about outfit choices when going on a night out. You may or may not agree with them, sometimes I break them as they are my rules so I can. But one that I will not be breaking again is never wear trousers.
Yeah I hear you say what are you talking about but think about it, you want to feel all girly and pretty skirts and dresses are a must. Leopard print silk trousers are apparently a faux pas, as much as I loved them when I bought them from Urban Outfitters I think that the town of Bridlington is not ready for something quite like them.
The only thing that stopped me from turning around and going home, after yet another comment about MC Hammer, were my brand spanking new Swallow Cut-Out Wedges from Toppers (another rule always wear heels). I mentioned them a couple of months ago, told myself I should not buy anymore shoes and then on Saturday saw them they had my size and whaddya know they’re wrapped up in a lovely box ready for me to take home. (I feel the need to add that technically because I was returning a dress these beauts on top of student discount only cost £20!)
I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now, one of 3 covers for the September edition of ASOS magazine shows upcoming actress Emma Stone. As much as she suits the red hair, Emma is in fact a natural blonde but after dying it red for a role she decided to keep it! Her new movie Easy A co-starring Penn Badgley is out soon, as well as that she got to co-star with Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits. She has such a stunning look I can see great things for this redhead! *Update – There’s a rumour Emma is being considered for a part in the new Spiderman franchise, TEAM EMMA for Mary-Jane Watson!

Ok I feel a massive rant coming on… I don’t want to say it but WTF David Beckham, Ashton Kutcher, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole, Ronan Keating, Tiger Woods, Jesse James, Vernon Kay, Mark Owen, John Terry, Peter Crouch and the list could go on and on and on.
So maybe some of these are rumours, but some of these have ended in divorce and family break-ups. I just don’t get it. Why why why ruin your life and marriage? And for that matter what actually possesses those women that know full well the particular celebrity they engage in an affair with, has a wife and family? Soulless, heartless, pathetic and money-grabbing.
And we all know, especially as a recent journalism graduate, that the media has a massive role to play in the breaking of news like an affair involving a celebrity male (or female), and it will do nothing for that person’s image if they try to put superinjunctions (aka John Terry) on anything being revealed. Guilty as charged.
Currently InTouch Weekly (USA) are running a front cover with David and Victoria Beckham with the headline “The Ultimate Betrayal”, a former high class call-girl has come forward claiming she had sex with Beckham 5 times back in 2007. The thing that bothers me is that after the whole Loos(e) affair I very much doubt David would even consider to wreck his marriage even more. According to my fellow journos, The Daily Mail has removed the story and the NY Post have decided to not run with the story, only InTouch are confident enough to believe a fame-grabbing w**re.
I hope it’s all crap.
