September Update

Hey dolls,

I decided since it's coming to the end of the month to do an update on what's been happening in my world the last few weeks :)

Some of my friend's graduated this month from college... very proud of each of them. I did a post on this earlier in the month so go check that out here.

Today is my parents 25th wedding anniversary and they're currently having a getaway in Mayo, Ireland for a few days. They celebrated with family and friend's on 10th September in Clonakilty, check out that post here and pictures here.

My younger brother turned 18 this month!! I'm still in denial! He used to be the same height as my nose for years and now I'm at his chin!! :( Gutted I can't call him my little brother anymore :P haha.

I've recently seen these two movie's Friends with Benefits and Crazy Stupid Love with my lovely boyfriend. Yes he was sucked into seeing these movie's but he "secretly" loved them. Both movies are great and I'll do a review at the weekend :) So watch out for those.

My best friend Sharon had her gorgeous baby girl, Chloe, this month.Check out here for more pics and info :) She's so small, can't wait to give her a lil cuddle when I eventually see her :)

I started my new job in Apple last friday, had my induction and now I'm officially working away. Can't talk about my job on here or anywhere else really. All you need to know is I'm loving it - really enjoyable and great place to work... early mornings aren't my friend (yet ;]).

Hope you enjoyed my quick and random post.

Movie Review: The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Hey dolls,

When I was on my getaway in Dublin I wanted to take my boyfriend to the biggest cinema in Ireland because he loves movies and big screens and all that. So we went to the VUE cinema in Liffey Valley to see

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I didn't know much about this movie only that James Franco, Tom Felton and Freida Pinto were all in it. As I watched the movie I loved the graphics, and how realistic the apes looked among the people and surroundings. The acting was all very well done, there were no dull moments when I thought oh god when is something going to happen. It was all very action packed and was so continuous and adventurous it really made a good impact. I liked the story line behind... showing that even in the trustworthiest places behind closed doors you never know whats really happening - it shows that when it comes to people who can't speak for themselves you have to be there constant eyes and ears. This movie was really a great movie.

The only part that let me down was when I found out that Tom Felton's character was bad... I was really hoping to see him stay away from the "dark side" of acting even just for his first major role away from the Harry Potter movies. He is a great actor though I will give him that and he played the role really well.

All actors in this movie portrayed there parts very well and worked well together.

My rating: 4/5

Wedding Anniversary and update!!

Hey dolls,

As you know I was at my parents wedding anniversary Saturday night. That weekend was very fast-paced and I haven't had much time or chance to blog since last thursday :( So as you can guess I failed my 30 days of blogging challenge I set myself! But with dodgy internet at my boyfriend's house, the computer down at my house, lack of timing and pictures I couldn't blog :( So on with my weekend...

Friday, 9th September
Today I had to finish tidying my room, shower and pack for the night away Saturday and my boyfriend came to my house with the cakes his mom made us...YUMMY :)

Saturday,10th September
Today is party day. My dad's cousin and his family arrived from Birmingham this morning so we collected them from the airport and went for breakfast in Douglas. We then went back to my gran's house (I still call it that even though she's passed on) and sat and talked. Then me and mom left to get our hair done. I got a curly upstyle done and mom got GHD curls. After the hairdresser we got home and my room had flooded :O I left the bedroom window open and the rain got in...my brother luckily spotted it and closed the window and dried up the water while I was out. When we got home it was a mad rush to pack (for me) and then once everyone arrived we headed off for Clonakilty. We stayed in the Quality Hotel and it was lovely there. Unfortunately didn't get to use the leisure centre this time...maybe another time! After we checked into the hotel we started to get ready immediately...well me and mom did! I had to do mom's make-up and fake lashes, I then had to re-curl her hair because the curls came out... :/ And then she did my fake tan and then I did her fake nails. All of a sudden dad comes in and tells me everyone is coming to our suite to have a glass of champagne before we leave for the dinner....I panicked because I was mid-way through doing mom's nails...I still had to get dressed, do my own make-up, lashes and nails!! So mid-way through doing my nails everyone walked into the main room in the suite to see me standing there putting on my nails... kinda embarrassing! :P And so we all toasted champers and had a glass each. Then we all headed off to the Fernhill House Hotel [where my parents had there original wedding reception :)]. We had a fabulous dinner with family and close friends and had some drinks afterwards. The dinner started at half 7 and we had a private bar area and drank the night away until half 3. Me and my boyfriend, my younger brother and his friend shared a suite.

Sunday 11th September
We got up for breakfast at 9am. After we checked out of the hotel we headed back for home, my brother had a match (won 4-1) and we had dinner in Captain America's that evening before me and boyfriend headed off for Limerick.

It was great seeing and chatting to all my cousins again. It's usually a while inbetween when we see each other :( We took loads of pictures... unfortuantely deleted all my pictures from my camera :( But there was loads of cameras so hopefully I will get some more pictures soon!! AND I forgot to take make-up pictures, hair pictures, outfit pics etc.... because I was in such a rush :( Sucks!! I'm sorry, I will definately re create the looks soon and get pics up!! :) xx
