We are getting into the swing of things now, because I am about to rap you up in this web of a trailer! I'm sorry that was bad lovelies, but honestly you are going to love the second trailer for Spiderman: Homecoming.
I know that the film and the character have been adapted and changed a number of times, but I have a really good feeling about Tom Holland in this role.
See what I mean below lovelies...
What do you think about Holland as Spiderman so far? Let me know!
Good Afternoon Lovelies,
Are you ready for something very cute? This next trailer will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, because it features a very cute animal with a very big heart!
Ferdinand stars the voices of John Cena, Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Sally Phillips, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson and many more, as they tell the story of Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart who doesn’t want to be known as the dangerous beast he is mistaken for.
Taken from his home, Ferdinand is determined to get back to his family with the help of some unlikely friends. Based in Spain, this film has a great message at the heart of its story.
And a very cute trailer to go with it...
Don’t miss the film on the 15th December lovelies!
Good Afternoon Lovelies,
Okay so I am very excited about this news! If you know me well you will know that Cruel Intentions is one of my favourite films. I saw it when I was probably a bit too young to see it but fell in LOVE with it.
So you can imagine how happy I was when it was announced as one of the first four films for this year’s Film4 Summer Screen event at Somerset House, from the 10th to the 23rd August.
Along with Moonlight, My Neighbour Totoro and All the President’s Men, the festival will welcome these classics in their two-week festival that celebrates contemporary, cult and classic films, as well as hosting new film premieres and musical guests.
There is sure to be more amazing films announced lovelies, so look out for more news soon. I will be patiently hoping and praying that I can get tickets for Cruel Intentions from now until August when the event is held.
And how are we all on this sunny day? I am currently listening to The Kinks and praying for BBQ’s, picnics and outdoor film screenings! Plus these brand new film clips that you lovelies are not going to want to miss.
I know I don’t normally blog in the evening’s but I had a few things to tell you all and I just couldn’t wait to share the news. Especially when this news features the return of one of my favourite game/film characters of all time.
Taking over from Angelina Jolie, Alicia Vikander will portray Lara Croft in the newest adventure from the series and in this first look image, she looks ready for action…
The film follows Lara Croft in her earlier years, as she experiences the disappearance of her father and the action-packed life that is laid out before her. At the age of 21, Lara is working as a bike courier in East London and struggling to pay for her college and rent fees. Unhappy with how her life is, Lara refuses to take over her father’s business as it means he is truly gone.
Advised by others to admit that her father is dead, Lara turns against them to try and solve what happened to him. Heading to the last place he was believed to be, a tomb on a mythical island in Japan, her mission begins and it is isn’t an easy one. Suddenly everything is up against her and she must use her adventurous spirit to beat those against her, earning the nickname tomb raider along the way.
Director Roar Uthaug said about the film, "Being a long-time fan of the game, it’s important to me to honour the Lara Croft legacy and capture that spirit. It’s great to know that there’s such a passionate global fan base for Lara and her world, and our commitment to that will be evident in our movie. What’s different about this “Tomb Raider” movie is that it’s an origin story for the big screen, focusing not only on Lara’s strength and physical accomplishments but her humanity. We see Lara as a young woman, smart and capable but largely unfocused, and follow her on a dangerous journey that will push her to her limits in every sense, and allow her to hone the skills she needs to ultimately become who she was meant to be. As Lara Croft, Alicia Vikander is brilliant. She brings great depth to a complex role that is both physically and emotionally demanding. We hope this film will delight fans around the world and add another intriguing chapter to the Tomb Raider story."
Also, speaking about the film, producer Graham King said, "I’m excited to be a part of this new Tomb Raider story, which introduces the origins of Lara Croft and delves into the humanity of this character. Alicia Vikander is a gifted actress that brings so much to this role. Our director, Roar Uthaug is extremely passionate and has an eye for scale as well as gritty realism. It’s been a wonderful experience shooting in various locations around South Africa and we hope that using these actual locations will give a grounded sense of reality. It’s our goal to make a film that will not only delight fans but enthral a world-wide audience."
Good Afternoon Lovelies, Okay so are you lovelies ready to be treated to a lot of brand spanking new clips? Well, be prepared because I have lots for you to enjoy from the likes of Free Fire, Ghost In The Shell and many more!
With the new season of Follow The Money coming out very soon on home release, I spoke to the creator and writer of the show, Jeppe Gjervig Gram about his favourite moments, what we can expect in the new season and what is he working on next.
And it was all very exciting...
Firstly, congratulations on such a fantastic second series. How does it feel to hear such good things about it?
It is absolutely wonderful. When you do a big show in Denmark, you focus a lot on the Danish audience, because we simply have to succeed here first and foremost. So when a foreign audience enjoys it as well, it is such a magical feeling of your story suddenly taking on a new life on its own abroad. It is just as exhilarating as back when Borgen was first broadcast in the UK and we were taken aback with the unexpected embrace by the British audience.
To be honest I think it actually helps when we are doing a show that we don’t focus to much on it being ‘international’. I truly believe that the secret behind the good Danish shows are that we tell stories about what we know, from our specific Danish point-of-views – and that through this local approach, they appeal globally. If they are good stories, obviously.
For those who haven’t seen the second series, could you sum it up for us please?
Last season focused on fraud in the green energy sector - this time we move into the world of banking. A bankruptcy for a small business owner gets a very tragic outcome, and the very dirty trail left behind leads Mads into a huge case of fraud at the heart of one of the largest bank in the country. Claudia has served her time, but getting out of jail as an ex-con lawyer is not easy – however she gets an offer from Christensen, the man behind the Energreen fraud that gives her a chance to redeem herself. And Nicky is on a dark path as the young apprentice of none other than the sinister and violent ‘fixer’ The Swede.
How did you find it preparing to make the second series? Did you have any tips or tricks from making series one?
Doing season 1 was a great experience, but also one of learning. Writing a series about finance feel a lot like pioneering work, since there weren’t really any existing series in that genre that we could draw inspiration from. It is a very complex subject matter for drama – even more so than politics, which was a great challenge too working on Borgen – so we had to learn along the way how to make complex stories of finance work – both be credible and engage an audience. In season 2 we were able to draw on those experiences, when looking for the right blend of financial, thriller and character storylines.
Is there a moment in the second series that you think people should look out for or that you enjoyed best? Why this scene?
You are asking a father to choose among his children! Of course I have favourite moments, but it feels like betrayal to pick only one. And I don’t want to spoil anything. Being put on the spot, I would have to say the Nicky-storyline of the botched kidnapping in episode 6 - I think Esben Smed is doing terrific work - though also some of the Mads and Kristina moments towards the end are very, very dear to me. But then both Alf, The Swede and Claudia all, too, have many scenes that I am very proud of.
Is there going to be a third series? If so where do you see the characters and the story going?
Well, I am actually not authorized to be very specific about that… but we are developing a story line and scripts for a new season at the moment. It is all very secret. So I cannot spoil anything.
Finally, can you tell us about what you are working on now or what we can look forward to seeing you in in the future?
I am working full time on the above.
Don’t miss the second season of Follow The Money when it comes out on DVD on the 10th April!
Hope you are all well and ready for a fun filled day of blogging because there is so much happening on the blog right now! Including the introduction to a much-loved book character, Captain Underpants, in the brand new trailer for his film.
Today marks the day that Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them reaches our homes on digital, DVD and Blu-Ray versions! And to celebrate I wanted to share our exciting review of the film!
Guest reviewing on the blog, Kara is my friend from work who is very excited by the magical world of Harry Potter and co. So I decided to let her review the film lovelies. I hope you all enjoy it lovelies…
Thanks to Joey for the advance screening of FBAWTFT.
This review is slightly spoilery.
It doesn’t hit you how much you’ve missed Harry Potter until the Warner Bros title floats on screen. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a welcomed addition to the film-verse, bringing to life the wonder and magic in 1920s New York.
In the first instalment of five, Fantastic Beasts introduces us to just a small selection of the creatures Newt has collected. It’s a taste of what’s to come – from the big to the deceptively small, the creatures are the heart of the film. You’ll wish these creatures exist in the real world, with weekly documentaries about them à la Secret Life of the Zoo or Planet Earth II. Newt Scamander is the David Attenborough of the magical world and Hagrid is his number 1 fan.
The essence of the magical world remains and its fusion with the 1920s era is incredible. The wizard speakeasy, mob goblins and bartender house-elves (Dobby would’ve made a good bartender), surrounded amongst the half-built skyscrapers set the tone for the film. You can’t help but compare our ministry with America’s equivalent, and I hate to say it, but the MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) headquarters is so pretty!
An unexpected surprise was the world within a world. We really did find out where to find the fantastical beasts – or at least a representation of it in Newt’s special suitcase. It makes you wish you got to see inside Hermione’s endless bag.
Eddie Redmayne is the perfect, lovable Newt Scamander and brings a nuanced and charming performance, but the most unexpected surprise was the no-maj (we call them muggles here) Jacob Kowalski, played by Dan Fogler, who’s taken along for the ride in the hunt to catch ‘em all.
Our other two additions to the fantastic beast catching team were the two witch sisters, Porpentina aka Tina (Katherine Waterston) and Queen (Alison Sudel). They shone in their roles, and I’m glad Queenie wasn’t relegated to a background character – her resourcefulness, smarts, and just her general presence added an extra special element to the movie. The relationship forged between the four heroes and the sisterly bond between Queenie and Tina was very well done and was the highlight of the movie.
The budding romance between Newt and Tina is subtly portrayed, as well as that of Queenie and Jacob which was endearing. The latter in particular we really start to root for, especially given the strict no-mag/wizard fraternisation rules enforced by the ministry.
You’ll see familiar spells being thrown which ties it well to the HP world we know and love. The rich setting and excellent CGI effects bring this world to life and immerses you into the experience. You’ll yet again be reminded how your acceptance letter got lost in the mail, but at least you can cast a simple ‘lumos’ spell on your phone (Thanks, Google).
Fantastic Beasts switches from light-hearted to dark effortlessly, with sprinkles of humour mixed in with a pound of violence. You won’t need ‘giggle water’ (you’ll get this when you watch the movie) to make you laugh, as the comedic elements in Fantastic Beasts sets it apart from the previous Harry Potter instalments. Newt performing a mating dance with a giant hippopotamus, bank and jewellery store heists, and a sticky-fingered platypus-like creature are just a few things you can look forward to.
A character also makes it rain at one point...
Take away the creatures, however, and the flaws begin to show. The secondary storyline involving Grindelwald (Depp) and Graves (Farrell) felt rushed – almost an afterthought, and after painstakingly injecting life and love into the creatures, the ending is predictable and I hate to say it, but it’s been done already. Percival Graves was a character I would have loved to have seen more of, and while Farrell portrayed the MACUSA (no, not a mob group) official with posture, grace and a quiet menace, his character and storyline was often left in the background until you were reminded of his presence.
Credence, played by Ezra Miller, had an incredible presence on screen, and even without saying much, he kept viewers entranced and riveted by his tragic storyline. The emotional and physical abuse he suffered and its ramifications is a powerful and resonating message. We see a small, black wisp slink away after the epic battle, so I’m hoping that Credence escaped and will seek Newt’s help in the future.
The wand fight near to the end is impressive – it’s literally electric, but it is short-lived and over too soon. Not enough time was given to this side of the story, and while I’m glad we got to see the creatures, there should have been a balance. Perhaps in the next few movies, it will be more well-rounded.
Hagrid would love this movie, and if that’s not enough to make you watch, at least you’ve still got the 8 Harry Potter movies, 7 books, and various other reading materials.
Look out for mentions of Hogwarts, Ilvermorny, Dumbledore and a family name you might not expect…
A question the movie leaves you with is who they will cast as a young Dumbledore and if we can ever expect a Marauders era movie soon (or if it will only remain in my dreams).
Fans of Harry Potter, you won’t be disappointed. They’ve done good.
Kara gave the film…
The film comes with a few extra editions, which I checked out and they are full of magical goodness, which I am sure every Wizarding World fan will enjoy!
Bleed For This was a film I had marked down and was desperate to see at the BFI 2016 Film Festival. Chosen by Empire Magazine, the film was a hot spot for many and so sadly I missed out on seeing it first time round.
Now on its second outing in the ring, the film is just as good. Starring Miles Teller and produced by Martin Scorsese, the film tells the story of boxing legend Vinny Pazienza.
After being involved in a car accident, doctors were unsure Vinny would ever walk again, let alone get back in the ring. However, after defeating the odds and their words of advice, Vinny returns to the boxing world with a new determination.
With Scorsese involved, the film had a man attached who knew how to make a boxing film. Add in Teller's charisma and the film hooks you in and holds you down right up until the end.
Vinny's story isn't one that is familiar with everyone, but the sharp script and the clever shoots have presented it on screen in such a way that it is now hard to forget. Score pieces complement the scenes well and the atmosphere is portrayed well by one of Teller's strongest acting performances yet.
Those who are familiar with the story will be able to see just how well it matches up to the truth. Very hands on with the film, the real Vinny knew when to knock them down when something wasn't right and there so every detail has been thought of with care. Every actor knows there character inside and out it seems and it makes for incredible viewing.
Whilst it doesn't match up to the greats we all know, it is a modern boxing story. It follows on from Creed in reviving the boxing genre and it presents a story of determination and inspiration, mixed with a hint of worry, to a new generation.
There so I am going to give this a heavy weight of...
After being nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the film, Hailee Steinfeld returned to the big screen in The Edge of Seventeen. For many, the film will be a teenage film, but when you look at the heart of it, it is a lot more than that.
Steinfeld plays Nadine, a teenager who is struggling with the loss of her dad, her brother’s relationship with her best friend and the interests of an admirer. Unsure what life has in store for her, she struggles to deal with her emotions and in many scenes goes to over the top.
Just like most of us teenagers did. To her, the world is a place that is hard to deal with, whatever the situation. Throughout the film, director Kelly Fremon Craig uses it to reverence old school films that made the teen film genre.
He manages to connect audiences to Steinfeld, who plays a witty teenager throughout, as she struggles with things that many of us have had to deal with. And many things we haven’t as well. Against Woody Harrelson, who plays her teacher, there is a connection with audiences with the idea that there isn’t anything that we can’t deal with in life.
Teen films haven’t been this good for a long time, with the last acceptable ones being Easy A and The Duff, but now if they stick to this form, they will be back with a vengeance. Steinfeld has set the bar high for others who take the lead and it is going to be a tough job to match up to her.
Overall the film is a gripping and witty story that takes away some of the serious elements of the audiences life throughout its run time. There is an ease with watching it and that doesn’t come very often in teen films of recent years.
A few weeks ago I was sent the Arrow classic, Pieces to review and this weekend I sat down and got stuck into the horror film!
Now in a new 4K format, the film follows a Boston university campus as it is terrorised by a manic figure, who goes around and takes body parts from his victims. The film is a gore fest and the more it goes on the more graphic it becomes.
There are corpses everywhere and the film thrives on shocking audiences with murders, then actually giving a very good plot or storyline across to audience members. When faced with this, it makes it a lot harder for you to enjoy the film as a whole.
The Spanish thriller is one that horror fans, who enjoy the gore or shock factor will like, but if you are more or into thriller aspects then this is not the one for you.
If you watched Girls or have seen the latest Star Wars adventure, then you will probably be like me and have fallen in love with Adam Driver! Portraying characters that are completely different every single time, his latest role in Paterson will make your heart fall for him even more.
Directed by Jim Jarmusch, the film tells the story of a bus driver in New Jersey. Whilst he spends his day driving around the city, Paterson writes poetry and his daily observation into a notebook. All reflecting his routine based life with his wife Laura, played by Golshifteh Farahani, who is living a less than planned life with brand new ideas and projects coming her way daily.
Based over a week, starting on Monday, the film takes the tiny aspects of life to make it comical, emotional and enjoyable. When Jarmusch makes a new film, it is sure that he will never do something that is viewed to be too over the top or unbelievable, which makes his films more relatable and realistic.
Driver and him have worked to show every aspect of the character’s life and they never try to prevent audiences from seeing the humanity of a shot. Mix in the poetry and the film flows along, as much as the rhymes that are easy to remember do in the film.
The secondary characters also make a real impact in making sure the film flows as well as it does. Farahani’s portrayal of the wife who is more carefree, but also at times demanding, is a strong role and the emotion created by the dogs - even though they are not acting – shares with the audience something that many can connect with.
However, it all really comes down to Driver. Whilst many of us have seen him act before in roles that should have won several awards, the way in which he takes this character is a sweet and innocent take that will make you fall under his acting charms. Paterson is a mix of a sweet but heart-breaking character and Driver nails it both times.
Overall the film is a real look at one’s man’s life and the changes that can happen to someone within a week of their life. There is a realness in this film unlike others that have tried to share the same thing and that is why I am giving it…
Arrow Videos are at it again and providing us with a new cult classic on Blu-ray, as they have released the classic Dead or Alive Trilogy for the first time today!
Never had a franchise opened with a six-minute montage full of sex, drugs and violence, but this is what you get when you first put on this trilogy. And it doesn’t stop until you turn the film off when it ends. Following Ryuichi and his gang, the films show them trying to take over the drugs trade in Tokyo.
As soon as the film begins, you get this sense of a Tarantino style film. The characters and the story are something that has many influences to and from Tarantino and it is the appeal that will hook audiences in. The action and the story are gripping.
However, there are several plot holes. The story does go a little bit mad at times, causing your attention to either be distracted or leading to confusion that makes you unable to watch the rest of the film or having to continuous rewind to understand.
A royal story with a very big difference, Luchino Visconti’s
film, Ludwig, continues to be a an interesting and eye-catching portrayal of
King Ludwig II’s reign in a world that was not as accepting of his ideals as he
would have liked.
Starring, Helmut Berger as Ludwig and Romy Schneider in her
reprising role as Empress Elisabeth of Austria, the films is a clever
adaptation of a royal reign, but its story is not the winning element of this
Whilst the actors and their talents stand out, the key
factor of this film is the beauty of the sets and the costumes that were
created for it. There isn’t a moment where the elegance of the characters world
isn’t reflected and it makes for real cinematic beauty.
Filmed in Munich, this classic film continues to truly shine
on and off screen for the masterful way it portrayed a world of different
acting and creative talent.
Arrow Films are continuing to make some amazing cult
classics available on Blu-ray and DVD, with their latest release being House:
The Complete Collection, which is now out for you to enjoy!
With four films in total, the House saga follows Roger Cobb,
a horror novelist as he moves into his aunt’s house and finds it to be haunted.
And the residents are not ones that you would want to live with. As the saga
continues, we get to meet more and more family members, who are unaware of the
fate they are about to embark on.
The films showcase some of the ideas that modern horror
filmmakers have taken on board and made their own. With a family affair being
present in the entire series, there is a connection that those in the 80s and
90s strived to share with audiences.
However, the film lacks the series tone that they have.
Making the films a fun affair to enjoy with those around you. It feels in fact
like the wrong time to present the films, as the box set would be the perfect
marathon affair for Halloween.
Is it time to start preparing for it yet? It might be as I
am giving the films…
During the summer, I begin to send lots of emails to prepare for the blog’s Christmas gift guide. I know that it may seem super early, but for many bloggers and publications, Christmas actually starts in July.
One company I messaged last year, after finding them online and falling in love with their unusual gifts, was Nuku. Unfortunately, because the company were recreating their website I was unable to feature them in the guide, but that is all about to change.
The company were kind enough to get back to me and asked if I would like to review a few items. I decided to go with items that I thought would be perfect for the film fan, starting with the Latte Light. There isn’t any film or TV show where the characters don’t at some point stop off or have coffee together.
There so I decided to pick this cup because I wanted to share with you all a new way that you could style your room. And make it look like a piece from one of your favourites. This light can’t be used though for reasons that your favourites use their coffee cups. There is no way you could carry your coffee in this without an accident because the lid is full of LED lights that make the coolest room accessory.
Upon arriving the box was a little smaller than I thought it was going to be. However, when I opened the box I understood why and I now like the size of the cup. With three options to choose from, the box has a sunlight, night light and plain cup for you to choose from to suit the time of the day.
The plain one is pretty cool because you can decorate it yourself and when the light goes into it the pattern will show instead. To me, this seemed like a great option, because I love to collect coffee cups inspired or where people have been, so you could print off or draw the designs from famous film or TV coffee houses and have a super light to use.
You can also use coffee cups from places you have visited, which I have tried with the cup I had from Toms. I adore this quality to the product and I will be making sure to pick up extras in the shops I visit if they are cool. Especially if they are from a place that I know a favourite character of mine has been on.
The light is bright, whether you use the day or night option and it is simple to turn on and off as it is battery operated. In the lid of the cup where you would normally drink, there is a small but easy to use button that you click on and off to get the lights to work. Once on you honestly don’t need any other lights either. It is that bright!
There is one small element to the light that I would change, though. Whilst I love that you could use coffee cups from other places, the lightweight bases make it hard for the cup to stand up right at times because the LED lid is a little bit heavy.
You have to make sure that you have placed it down correctly, otherwise, the cups can get damaged. This could be fixed with a simple small weight in the bottom of the cup, which I might add to my ones.
Overall, though, this is a stylish and fun addition to any room in the house and will definitely trick a few people. I am currently going around where I live collecting coffee cups to style my light with and I love having a light next to my bed now that really stands out.
The small click to turn it on and off and the bright light mean I no longer have to get out of bed to turn the light off. A huge bonus in my mind. All I now need to do is get myself a Central Perk coffee cup and I will be sorted.
All of last week, I was adding some exciting videos teasing the united union of the Justice League and yesterday they finally came together! Oh yes, get ready lovelies, because this new trailer features the whole team together.

As BFI Flare Festival continues in London, Icon Film Distribution have announced that they will be releasing Handsome Devil in cinemas around the UK from, the 28th April, after its premiere at the festival tonight!
Created by John Butler, the film stars Andrew Scott, Moe Dunford and Michael McElhatton, who tell the story of two boarding school roommates, Ned, who loves music and rugby player Conor. Upon meeting the boys instantly dislike each other, but their teacher soon makes them see that they can work together with their own voices.
With a little while to go until the film is released lovelies, you can enjoy this brand-new trailer from it to help the time pass…
Do you all remember a while ago when I shared with you all the upcoming shows and films coming to Netflix? One of the newest shows was Casting JonBenet and we now have a full trailer for the documentary.
Today marks the end of one competition and the start of another lovelies! To celebrate the release of Shut In - available on DVD & Blu-ray 10th April – I have a copy of the film to give away on DVD courtesy of Arrow Films.
Shut In is a heart-pounding thriller starring two-time Oscar Nominee Naomi Watts, that relentlessly questions whether or not we can really believe our own eyes and ears.
Isolated by her role as a carer to her paralysed son and by a devastating blizzard, Watts’ child psychologist, Mary, must find out the truth behind a missing boy in her care. Making great use of its claustrophobic setting, Shut In is a terrifying slice of New England gothic that will keep you riveted until the final twist.
Yesterday, I told you all about the lovely new foods that would make your next film night or cinema trip more exciting and now I have another one to share with you. This one, however, is a little bit hot so it may be best to enjoy this something cool and sweet.
Newly released by Doritos, the company have announced their newest and hottest flavours yet, as they mix BBQ and Chipotle Cream with the hottest chillies around. When you first taste these, the flavours are not hot but give it a few moments and you will be feeling the burn lovelies.
Kindly Doritos sent me some of the bags to try and I had to call upon my taste tester mum to do this one. Not only because I didn’t want her to know what the flavours were before she tried them, but because I also can’t handle hot stuff and I could tell from the smell when I opened the bag that these were going to be spicy.
Starting with the BBQ and Chilli flavour, my mum was quick to say that they were like a tangy BBQ before announcing that she was getting the chilli flavour coming through. Out of the two flavours, my mum said this was the hotter one of the two and probably the one that she would have with some sour cream to help her die it down a little bit.
After witnessing this reaction, I was glad I had left the Chipotle Cream and Chilli flavour until last. Once she had tried the crisp, my mum was quick to announce that she loved the creamy taste of this one. She said that she could enjoy this one a little bit more and felt like this would be the best thing to put out at an event, as a treat for those who like hot or normal flavours.
The bags are pretty big and could easily be shared lovelies, which is why I think this would make the perfect share bag when at the cinema or at home. They have been created to be a treat that everyone can enjoy and whilst I probably wouldn’t have been able to handle them, this would be the perfect thing to shock or excite people with.
Out now in local shops and supermarkets, you can look out for this new treat on your next shop lovelies. They are the perfect treats to enjoy with others or on your own if you love a bit of spice.
I promised you all that this afternoon it was all going to be focused on food and it is now about to get real serious lovelies! Oh Yes!
Ben and Jerry’s have announced the ultimate ice cream dream, as they have created some new flavours and topped them in the best way possible, with CHOCOLATE toppings including milk, white and dark flavours.
There are three new flavours to choose from lovelies including Strawberry Swirl, Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough and Salted Caramel Brownie and to prepare me for the ultimate taste test, Ben & Jerry’s have been the biggest loves of my life – they were already my two favourite men in the world – and sent me an amazing box of goodies to help me enjoy the new flavours to the max.
Earlier today, the box arrived in a very mysterious way and upon opening it I was greeted with green paper. Honestly, I didn’t think I could get as excited as I did for green paper but I did. Underneath was some of the sweetest items ever.
After reading the letter in the box, I found a pair of Ben & Jerry’s headphones, an eco-friendly mug, a cute wooden USB stick, some stylish cookie dough sticky notes, scoop inspired spoons, a cow printed drawstring bag, a quote filled notebook, an incredible magnet that lets you know if you have any Ben & Jerry’s left, an A to Z booklet on Ben & Jerry’s and the ultimate treat, some vouchers to enjoy the new flavours.
I haven’t been able to leave my house yet to get hold of them flavours, but I have been enjoying the new headphones and planning my next trip to Tesco’s to get myself some tubs. I will be sure to let you know when I have managed to try them though lovelies. You may even hear me and my family because we are all very excited about the new flavours.
I just wanted to do this post to say a massive thank you to the Ben & Jerry’s team and the lovely ladies at W, who have given me this perfect present. I am always so thankful to companies when they send me items and this was the best mid-week pick me up!
Will you be trying the new flavours lovelies? Let me know!
