Love Hate Review!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Love Hate (2009) is a short film starring Ben Whishaw and Hayley Atwell and written and directed by Blake Ritson and Dylan Ritson with music composed by Tom Haines and Christopher Branch.

It follows the story of a charity worker called Tom (Whishaw) who meets Hate (Atwell) and shows Tom that underneath his kind spirit there might be another side to Tom’s personality. Very good comedy/drama with a touch of the supernatural possibly about it and really well acted.

Check the film out below:

The Amazing Style Of Lynn Gunn!

I love the rock chick and gothic style of Pvris frontwoman Lynn Gunn. Her rock tops are so wonderful and paired with black jeans and boots she ensures a perfect rock look that I love.

Make-Up

From gothic to rock make-up and a more natural look Lynn can do it all to perfection.

The Golden Globes took place recently and as always was a night brimming with fashion as well as movie wins. Below is my favourite outfits from one of the highlights on the fashion and movie calenders:

 

Female Style

Brie Larson

Winner of Best Actress on the night for her role in Room Brie Larson looked amazing in this golden, sequinned gown with beautifully matched long, flowing earrings.

Viola Davis

72nd-annual-golden-globe-awards-arrivals-1

I loved Viola’s Davis’ red gown on the night. I love the sparkles at the top and the fabric is wonderfully luxurious.

Alicia Vikander

73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Nominated for Best Actress on the night for her role in The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander looked stunning in this understated, beautiful gown.

Lupita Nyong’o

I have always loved Lupita Nyong’o’s style and her outfit on the night was yet another fashion success. There is a wonderful hippie quality to the dress which is always brilliant and her bag matches beautifully with her dress. One of my three favourite outfits on the night.

Saoirse Ronan

Our very own Saoirse Ronan was nominated on the night for Best Actress for her role in Brooklyn and like Alicia Vikander chose a beautiful understated white gown with a stunning trail.

Emma Stone

My other favourite look on the night came from Emma Stone who did the androgyny look wonderfully and had a uniqueness with her trail.

 

Male Style

Eddie Redmayne

Nominated for Best Actor on the night for his role in The Danish Girl, Eddie Redmayne looked amazing in his very classic suit. The velvet look of the jacket is stunning.

Matt Bomer

Winner of Best Supporting Actor in a series, mini-series or TV movie for his role in The Normal Heart, Matt Bomer looked amazing in his very classic blue suit and matched his dickey bow brilliantly to his shoes which made me smile because the shoes reminded me of the type of shoes my dad loved and of course my dad was a very stylish man so clearly Matt Bomer is too.

Alan Cumming

Nominated for Supporting Actor in a TV series, movie or mini-series for his role in The Good Wife, Alan Cumming looked amazing in his pink suit and hip-hop style Christian Louboutin “Mika on Stage” high-top sneakers.

Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa’s look on the night was brilliant. The sunglasses, the white tie with the white shirt and the loafers with no socks make this look very unique and cool.

Jamie Dornan

Looking very classic on the night was our very own Jamie Dornan who also wore shoes that looked like shoes my dad liked to wear so again another very stylish man.

Jared Leto

My other favourite outfit on the night was by Jared Leto whose style I love. Donning a white suit and looking every inch the rock star he is, Jared looked amazing on the night.

 

 

 

 

 

Brilliant Flash Fiction Equality Writing Contest Results!

15935

 

Just when I was putting up about my story appearing in Woman’s Way I remembered I never put up the link to the Brilliant Flash Fiction’s results of their writing contest on the theme of equality judged by writer Liz Nugent. Some great stories to read there and my own story entitled Waking up to a Marriage Proposal is listed on the long list which was amazing and I loved writing it and loved my two main characters Lee and Stefan.

My short story entitled New Love At 62 appears in this week’s Woman’s Way Magazine. It was fun to write and I loved writing my two main characters Mary and George. Seen it when I was on my break from college today down in the supervalu and purchased it when I was out with my sis tonight and it looks fab. Thanks again to everyone at Woman’s Way.

Poem: Beacon Of Light

bow1

 

Some beacons of light make the world easier,

Liberate people to be themselves

And show them it is ok to be.

 

Some beacons of light make music

That passes through generations

And is timeless.

 

Some beacons of light make an impact

On how you see the world

And how you see people.

 

Some beacons of light make an impact

On how others see the world

And how they see you.

 

Rest in peace David Bowie.

The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.
