I’ve been feeling fairly drained the past couple of weeks – work has been really busy, and with all of the horrible news at the moment I’ve been trying to steer clear of the internet, and social media in general! That will all be changing though, as from this weekend I’ll officially be on holiday – hurrah!
Working a full-time job, as well as attending blogger events most evenings can really take it out of you. I’ve been trying to unwind a little more, and clear my head, which is why I was super excited that HMV got in touch and sent me over a little pamper pack – it was just what I needed.
A quiet night in with cocktails, a face mask and The Breakfast Club really hit the spot!
I also managed to score tickets to the UK premiere of The Neon Demon, the latest film from Nicolas Winding Refn (Director of Drive and Only God Forgives).
If you’ve seen any of his films before, you’ll know that they are very atmospheric – and stunningly shot. Every scene was so beautiful, and despite mixed reviews I loved the film, especially as it focused a lot more on female relationships compared to his previous work.
I’ve never been to a film premiere before, and it was really interesting to hear from Winding Refn directly about the film – and Elle Fanning’s dress was amazing, too. It was also my first time at Picturehouse Central, which is a whole lot nicer than the Odeon in Leicester Square (although my favourite cinema is still the Prince Charles!)
