Guess what??

I am rambling again  ...............
But you have said (through my poll, which is still open so go and vote!) that some of you like them and to be honest, I quite enjoy writing them.
As you may have noticed, the blog design has changed. I much prefer the new one as I think it is more 'me' . I makes me smile a lot more when I see it and I am also very proud of the fact that me , a techno novice, make a custom header!
I am sorry for my lack of blogging ... again. I have had many things to deal with in life this week but I have not forgotten. So I have a theory. I am going to post once a week defiantly from now on and if I have the time, which I hope to most weeks, post twice. Is this OK?
I've had a bit of a mind blank on what do do so I thought I would sort of do a post inspired by Stacey (I hope you don't mind!) from Life At A Glance, where she did a post on her favourite restaurants so I thought I would change it slightly and do my favourite places to eat in general. They are in no particular order because I love them all!

Wagamama has to be one of the most delicious places ever. For those of you that haven't lived, wagamama is as Asian, well they call it fast food but I don't think it is, restaurant which serves mainly noodle, rice and curry dishes. I love it!!
If I could I would live of pizza - it is my favourite food and Pizza Express is my favourite place to eat it. They serve pizza (funnily enough) and pasta and both are amazing ~licks lips~
Costa is amazing. Its a coffee shop-place but sells the most amazing lunchtime snacks, cakes and drinks. Sorry to all you Starbucks drinkers but I prefer Costa (I do still like Starbucks though)  I particularly love the Christmas stuff!
Pinkberry is very uncommon in the UK (there are 3 I think in Bluewater, Westfield Stratford and Selfridges but there maybe more) but from the few I have had, Pinkberry is one of the most amazing foods in the world. It's essentially frozen yogurt in a variety of flavours and you can put whatever toppings and sauces you want on it. Om Nom Nom!!
I feel I have to include some form of fast food and KFC is my favourite. I don't often have it but once in a while it is yum. this is my favourite of the fast food giants although I do like McDonald's chips!
I don't really know what purpose this post had but oh well your reading it so I posted it. Hope you enjoyed it

A Mixed Bunch ..........

Before anything else I would like to apologise. I have been a bad blogger once again. I have had many tests all week and have been revising like absolute mad. Thank god they're all done now. Rant over -onto the post.

This is a bit of a mixed post. Firstly, a song that I have fallen in love with. I heard this a couple of weeks ago and I is fast becoming one of my fav songs. It's Mcfly's new song , Love Is Easy. Its is soooo good!!

Also, Tonight is Children In Need! I do quite like all these TV charity thingys so I am a little excited. I have currently heard that there is a Doctor Who Special ~sqeee~ . I am a bit annoyed that my school didn't do anything but I bought a wristband (I am a bit of a one for wristband) and my family has given some money so I am happy I did my bit! So yeah, get donating!!
Also, I am considering doing a few blogy things in December. I am considering doing maybe a guest post week, competition, possibly the 30 day picture challenge or some kind of blog award/tag!! So let me know what you would prefer (I only want to post what people want to read)!

I gonna sign of as children in need is starting and I am soon to get a high school on a game on my Ipod!! Better post coming soon!!

Have a good evening!!

Helena's Reviews : Skyfall

On Sunday Night, I went to see the new James Bond film, Skyfall! Here are my thoughts.

I quite like James Bond but I prefer the old ones to the more recent ones. However, this one is different.
I'm not going to give much away about the plot because its quite hard to describe as a lot happens but basically, Bond has to save 'M' (Judi Dench) from Silva(bad guy).
I really, really liked this film! It was really exciting and full of action, adventure, a bit of romance and surprisingly a little bit of humour. I think that Daniel Craig is quite a good Bond but Javier Bardem is a amazing villain! I think one of the best things about the film was the special effects - they were incredible! Really realistic. I also loved the storyline. I wasn't the conventional storyline as I went a bit more into Bond's past but I thought it was good and not one of the storylines that you new what was coming next. I do think of the previous Bond films can be found quite scary but this isn't. As I said there is a lot of action but It's not scary action. But I think my favourite part was the slight touch of humour. Bond movies nower days tend to be very serious so I liked that there were a few funny bits. They bought back some things from very old films as well. There was a little bit of romance like all Bond films but It wasn't excessive - just right in my eyes.
I realised from reading what I wrote that I have given a really quite awful review, but this film is fantastic and even if you don't think you like James Bond, I recommend you go and see it.
Rating: 23/25
Have a great day
