It feels weird doing best of the week on a Thursday, but better a day late than not at all I guess.
This week has been rather boring for me as I’ve not been up to much. Though I did go to the cinemas to watch Nerve and oh my gosh it was amazing. I mean, mainly because Dave Franco was in it but the actual plot and film was awesome too! I would definitely watch it again and I’d recommend it to you all.
Gosh I’m so jealous of Paige. I really want to watch Nerve! It looks amazing! But instead I splashed out some money (a heck of a lot of money) and bought myself a PS4! I know. I really shouldn’t have done it but I couldn’t help myself. I desperately wanted to play Uncharted and I got a huge paycheck at work so I just couldn’t help myself. Anyway my big thing is Uncharted 4 is such a great game! I got it for free in my bundle with the PS4 (which is great as it was the only game I wanted really) but it is such a long game! I’ve been playing it for like 4 hours now and I’ve just got to chapter 3 (about a third into the game). I have a feeling this one will keep me entertained for a good few hours more and I’m loving it!
So it’s day two of mine (the last day unfortunately) and Ellie’s meetup and it has been awesome! Six years and we’ve finally met – it’s definitely been worth the wait. It’s given us some good options for our best of the week though as we’ve been up to different things.
For my best of the week I’ve picked a theme park called ‘Lightwater Valley’ which Ellie took us to today. I’m a big fan of theme parks already but this one was so fun (the company made it though). Even though I was dragged on several rides I didn’t want to go on, I managed to have a great time!
And Paige loved every second of it! I promise you all that (despite all of the screaming and ‘oh my god‘ing). We had a great time. My best of the week will have to be Wetherspoons cocktails because nothing beats a Blue Lagoon! We drank way too much tonight and had an awesome time. However I’m super sad but that’s because Paige is going home tomorrow and I’m really sad to be losing the friend I’ve only just met. Bring on October when we get to meet again!
It’s crazy to think that the holidays are almost over! It feels like I only just started two weeks ago but now time is almost up! On a plus I still get to see Paige before I have to go back and I’ve got comic con to look forwards to so there’s that!! There’s also a lot more books for me to read in the time before we have to go back and I can’t wait to see what they bring.
When I was thinking about my best of the week, I instantly thought of an app I’ve started using recently. It’s called Zombie, Run and it’s so much fun! It’s basically an app that encourages running through creating a plot line while you run and, at the end of each run, you can use the supplies that you’ve collected to build up your base. I really love it and it’s so motivational for me! I’m definitely going to be in shape by the time I get back to uni after lazing around all summer!
My best of the week is a little vague, as I’m picking a website. Most of you may have heard of it before, it’s etsy.com – this site is sort of like a online market. There are loads of different shops/sellers that sell mostly handmade items, but there’s loads of different things you can buy. I love using this site when buying gifts for friends or family, there’s so many different options and different types of things you can buy.
So I was freaking out earlier because I remembered last week I said I was going to do a film for my best of the week this week and I couldn’t remember what film I picked for the life of me. However, I finally remembered thank God!
My choice is the film 1408, it’s not a new film but I watched it for the first time last week and it was so good! It’s adapted from the Stephen King novel so that’ll probably give you a small hint of the type of film it is. I would like to tell you all to be careful before watching it though because there are a lot of triggers in the film. It’s really good though, so if you think you could manage with a psychological thriller with triggers in it I’d definitely say give it a watch, or better yet read the book.
My week has literally been nothing but work so I had a lot of trouble choosing my Best of the week but then I remembered these tasty pots packed with scrummy goodness! These Muller yogurts are coconut flavoured with chocolate flakes and they are the best for snacking on in the middle of a work shift! Not to mention they have chocolate in but are still considered a light option so I don’t feel any qualms with snacking on these every day! And at only £2.50 for a 4-pack I’m happy and content.
I feel like crying because time is just flying by, I mean, it’s Wednesday already!! On the plus side that means it’s Best of The Week (and it’s getting closer to the day me and Ellie finally meet up).
You don’t realise how hard it was to not pick another film for my best of the week, I’ve decided against doing so as the past two weeks I picked films/programmes. I figured I should probably mix it up a little, but I’m going to do it next week instead. Anyway, I finally decided to pick a place to eat as my best of the week. I don’t know if any of you have gone to Bella Italia but I love it there. It’s a little expensive, but the pizza is soooo good!
Whereas I’m going to choose something that literally everyone is talking about. Have you guessed what it is? If not, why not?! Pokemon Go is obviously my best thing this week. I’m addicted to his quirky little app, as is most of the population apparently as it rapidly reaches the same level of usage as the Twitter app! I can’t get enough of this game. I finally get to be a pokemon master like I always dreamed of when I was a kid!!
Although we love picking our favourite thing of the week, I think sometimes we both secretly dread it. Narrowing down what you’ve enjoyed most during the week is harder than you’d think. Though we do still love it, because we love sharing it with you guys! And being able to suggest something we’ve enjoyed for all of you is great too, even if no one goes and tries it – it’s just nice sharing our opinions with you all. Anyway I’m ranting now, so on with the show!
For my best of the week, I’ve decided to do something that would link in with our top five from Monday. After putting the book ‘And Then There Were None‘ as one of top five summer reads I remembered the mini tv drama that BBC did on the book. It was so good! So I re-watched it yesterday and decided that my best of the week had to be on that. It has Aidan Turner in it, and I’m a big Aidan Turner fan – not is he a good actor but he is gorgeous, so there’s a reason to watch it for starters. Anyway I do recommend you go and find it somewhere online and give it a watch!.
Once again I find myself and Paige copying each other because I’m choosing something else that you watch. If you follow our instagram then you’ll know that I went to see Now You See Me 2 last night and I can’t stop singing praises about this film! The first one is my favourite film of all time and this one was pretty good! Not as good as the first but I still thought it was great. If the trailer has put you off (or the fact that Isla isn’t in it) then don’t let those stop you! It was still an awesome film 🙂
I feel like we start every week by saying what a busy week it has been but this week has been crazy busy! For me anyway! We’ve also been trying to get this blog going properly, as well as our other accounts (twitter, instagram) so we’ve been working hard to get those going too.
I’ve been on full shifts for the past two weeks and I’m just dying for my day off on Friday! Give it to meee! But I’ve also managed to do a lot of reading in my breaks so that’s good. And, when I finish at the end of the day, I usually just collapse on my bed to read more. But my newest craze this week has been to watch Log Horizon. It’s this amazing anime about getting trapped in the UK and I am literally love it! It’s so much fun and I adore the characters. There’s also a badass swashbuckling pirate (who’s a cat by the way) and an awesome lead who has an evil eye glint and he’s so intelligent. This show is brilliant! I would definitely check it out if you get a minute.
I’m actually going to join Ellie this week and pick something I’ve been watching as my best of the week. For some reason this week I decided to binge watch the old scream movies, after finishing them I was left wanting more – so I gave the Netflix show ‘Scream‘ ago. I have to admit I wasn’t sure that I’d like it, my expectations were very low. However, I was gladly proven wrong. I loved it and I loved loved loved the characters. There’s twists that I weren’t expecting which is unusual for me as I normally call what will happen. Anyway, I really think you guys should go give it ago! Try to savour it though, instead of binge watching it all in one day like me.
