My Sister's Keeper review

I got some preview tickets and went to see My Sisters Keeper last night and all i can say is omg take tissues.

Its based on the book by Jodi Picoult, which alot of you may have read, but the film is slightly different. It stars Cameron Diaz who is absolutely amazing in it. Its nice to see her playing a different type of character and she does it so well. Her co- stars are equally wonderful.

Abigail Breslin stars as Anna, a 13-year-old girl who was conceived by IVF in order to be a genetic match for her older sister, Kate, who has battled leukemia since childhood. Despite being a normal, healthy child, Anna has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions and injections for the sake of her sister's health. Now, when she must forgo the opportunity to go to a prestigious hockey camp in order to donate a kidney to her sister who has gone into renal failure, Anna decides that enough is enough and sues her parents for medical emancipation.

I literally have never cried so much watching a film, I'm taking this as a good sign haha. The performances and plot are amazing. I will definitely be buying the DVD. Amazing, Lou xx

Rant of the day

Who lets their dog out alone? They are not cats!!! I was out walking with a friend earlier when an evil Alsatian started to harass us.

At first it was just sniffing around, pretty harmless. We kept walking, my friend is terrified of dogs so he looked like he was going to pass out. It followed us and then started barking and growling. I seriously thought it was going to bite us. It only stopped when it wandered into someones garden.
It really annoyed me, come on, if your going to have a dog at least bother to walk it yourself, don't just let it wander around by itself causing mischief. Enough moaning from me now haha. Its such a lovely day (well apart from the savage dogs out) Lou xx

Primark nail varnish and lipgloss reviews

As you may have seen from an earlier post i bought a Primark lip gloss and nail varnishes the other day. Ive used them and wanted to let you know how i got on with them.

The packaging doesn't reveal any names but the gloss is a peachy/orange colour and the nail varnishes are mint and sparkly jade.
The gloss is not very pigmented and i felt like i had to use alot in order for it to show up. Its not incredibly thin but as someone who likes a thick gloss eg Juicy tubes, this didn't work for me. The gloss seemed to wear off rapidly without eating and drinking and left my lips feeling dry. Not too surprised really as it was only £1.00.

I was pleasantly surprised with the nail varnish. It had a good consistency and the brush was a reasonable size. I had to apply 3 coats which then gave good coverage and it has lasted 2 days without chipping so far. The colour reminds me of Barry M's mint green. I received loads of compliments about it today, which is always nice.

Apologies for the slightly blurry photos. I need to get my other camera fixed as i damaged it whilst travelling :(
