Weekend Style: Roll Neck And A Football Shirt

Monday, 15th April, 2019

Roll Neck Layered With A Football Shirt

Happy Monday guys!

I hope you are well and rested from the weekend. It was a pretty cool and quiet one, and of course was all about football. Newcastle played on Friday night and so I wore my shirt (with a roll neck!) and there was football on Sunday too.

So here’s how it went, and more on my foot in a moon boot update!

Luis Aragonés Euro 2008 & Spain Documentary (Luis, el sabio del éxito)

Luis, el sabio del éxito Amazon Prime Review

As you’ll know from reading my blog over the years, I am a massive Spain fan. A huge Spain fan. Back in 2008, Spain won Euro 2008, the first time they have won a trophy since 1964. It was an incredible time, and the start of a great journey for Spain.

Amazon has created a couple of short documentary style films, called Luis, el sabio del éxito which takes a look at behind the scenes footage from the tournament, which has never been seen before.

As soon as I found out about this, I had to see it!

Hello guys & Happy Sunday…And of course, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers 😀

I can’t believe that it’s the last day of March…The clocks have just gone forward (change yours if you haven’t already!) which means we’re on our way to Summer. I haven’t done many ‘life’ updates on the blog for a while, so I thought I would do one today.

Beat - Amazon Prime Review of the German crime thriller

Hey guys!

So on the back of watching Four More Shots Please on Amazon, I needed something new to watch, and after browsing around I found this show called Beat. I watched a preview and read the synopsis and it sounded like it could be good.

So far I’ve watched a few episodes and I’m enjoying it. (p.s I won’t post spoilers)

The Spring Equinox - How I'm Styling It This Spring
So apparently it’s the Spring Equinox today, so it should officially be the first day of Spring! 🙂

I have been noticing the lighter nights, and that’s a good thing, because it’s closer to the Summer which I love. Soon we’ll be putting out clocks forward, and Summer will be here in no time. It will mean I have to swap my wardrobe around, from the Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer in a few weeks time when the weather gets better.

As the name suggests, it follows the lives of 6 people involved in in the Spanish Premier League, La Liga, including 3 footballers. The main characters in the film are Iñaki Williams, Saúl Niñguez, Quique Cárcel, Amaia Gorostiza, Andrés Guardado and Eduardo Berizzo.

Adventureland On Blu Ray For Film Night

Sunday, 3rd March, 2019

Adventureland Film Review

Have you ever bought a film not because of the plot or name, but because of the T-shirt that the people wear on the cover? That’s why I bought Adventureland on blu ray! 😀

Years ago I saw this T-shirt which had the word games repeated on the front of it, but I never knew what it meant, where it was from, or anything about it. I saw that design a few times, and then I discovered it was from a film called Adventureland. So I looked into the film, and found that it was a coming of age film, my favourite genre, so had to get it to see what it was all about.
