Logan (2017)

Hey guys! A few weeks ago I was at the cinema with my friend to see the new X-Men film Logan. I love Marvel and DC and all the stuff they bring us and I practically grew up watching X-Men. So it makes sense I was desperate to see this piece. Before I actually did, I watched some talk shows, where the hosts were interviewing either Hugh Jackman (as Logan) or Sir Patrick Stewart (as Charles Xavier). They were talking about this film as if it were their baby, haha. They both said they wanted it to be really deep and moving and showing Logan and Charles getting older and older and they wanted to show the consequences it brings. And in addition, my other friends were just amazed by the quality of the film and recommended me to see it as soon as possible. So I did and here’s what I thought about it…

Note: I divided this review to two parts, because there might be people who haven’t seen it yet (although it seems to me that I’m the last person on the planet who has seen it only now). So, first part is for the people who don’t know about this movie and the second one is full of spoilers for those who want to know my opinion. (And don’t worry, I’ll divide these parts very visibly.)

Finding Dory | Watch with Me

Hi! Ever since Finding Dory came out, I was super excited to watch it. The first film, Finding Nemo, is such a classic and it’s so well made and it kind of represents my childhood. I love it. And so I knew I had to watch Finding Dory as well, as soon as possible.

And it would be convenient, I thought, to write a review for my blog, when I’m at it. At least that was the original plan, because then I decided not to write a review-review, but rather a first impression-watch with me-kind of review. I think it might be a little bit more interesting that way.

Spoiler alert: The film is gorgeous.

Another spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers caused by my first impression thoughts. Please be aware of that.

Bridget Jones’s Diary | Review

Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

Published: 1996 (this edition in 2001)
Genre: Humour, romance, for women
My rating: 5/5
Goodreads rating: 3.74/5
Would read again: Yes

I wanted to read this book for a very long time, because I loved the films and it’s just a classic. In addition, I’ve heard great reviews about the books and Helen Fielding herself. I made a mind note Read this asap! and so when I got the first two volumes as Christmas presents, I opened the first one in excitement, making a New Year’s resolution read one book a month (or at least read more than I do now) at the same time. And so I brought it with me everywhere and read it when I had a chance – in public transport, during breaks between lectures or before going to sleep. And let me tell you, this book can pull you out of your daily depressions and low confidence moments really fast!

Catrice Cosmetics & Dermacol Concealer | First Impression

Hi! Recently I bought two different concealers. Normally I would purchase the Liquid Camouflage Concealer by Catrice Cosmetics, but it was sold out at that moment. So I was like “ok, why not try something completely new?”.

At that time I thought I preferred liquid concealers to the ones in stick, but these two babies proved me wrong. I honestly love the Liquid Camouflage Concealer, because it’s easy to apply, easy to blend and it gives you nice coverage. So I was quite surprised when these two solid concealers actually exceeded my expectations.

Alverde Products | Self Care Review

Hi! It was 28th of June, when wondervonnie texted me “OMG, you must buy this silicone-free Alverde shampoo, because it’s heaven!”. And I was like “Okay?”, but then I actually went to local drugstore and bought a whole set of their hair products plus a face wash. And here I am with a review, after a month of using these…

What’s in my makeup bag | Makeup Review

When I was younger, I wasn‘t interested in makeup whatsoever. I was rather boy-like girl – All I ever put on was a pair of jeans and any of my boring T-shirts, makeup was a waste of time, skirts and tights were something unacceptable for me and all love stories were lies. As I was slowly growing up, I abandoned some of these „rules“. I started using concealer (because puberty – spots and pimples all over my face), later even mascara. Then I started using face powder, eyeshadows, and so on and so on. And now I’m here, with makeup bag full of goodies.
