Why 2015 will be a spectacular year

2015 is here guys! We’re all probably looking for holidays, short breaks and just nice things to do for the rest of the year to keep us smiling. This year has some great things in store for us Old Hollywood lovers. There’s also some marvellous stuff in store for all film, fashion and art lovers.

To give you a taste we’re going to run down what we’re looking forward to in 2015… Obviously not everything is here yet, some exciting things will pop up later this year.

Film/ Stage

I’m looking forward to Into The Woods. A mash up of fairytales, songs and an all star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Johnny Depp and James Corden the film is sure to be a hit. Anna Kendrick also returns in Pitch Perfect 2 later in the year.

Katharine Hepburn at BFI Southbank are holding a month katharine-hepburn-portrait-001-00n-7xkof this brilliantly talented woman’s work. I was very excited when I found out about this! Films range from The Philadelphia Story and Adam’s Rib to A Woman Rebels and Stage Door with everything in-between. For the full list visit BFI You can also buy tickets here if you really, really need to. I might even see some of you there.

February also brings the Fifty Shades of Grey film which I hear millions of women are super excited for. Based on the book of the same name it features the very wonderful looking Jamie Dornan. With an 18 rating it’s definitely for the adult audiences. Prepare for sexiness, stalking, no romance, kinky fuckery and a very controlling rich man. It’s due out in the UK on 13th February with tickets available now from most cinemas.

Fifty Shades See you now

2015 sees a brilliant treat from director Maria Friedman who is bringing High Society to the London stage. Old Vic is going to be holding this swellegant, elegant party which will be kicking off on 30th April. As of yet no cast as been confirmed, can’t be long to wait though! Tickets are available here

Two films I probably don’t need to mention, but I’ll refresh your memories, are The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. Both look like sure hits this year.

Big Hero 6 is worth a mention for an animated film…

Exhibitions

V&A host a stunning looking exhibition of the late, great Alexander McQueen’s work and creative brilliance. Savage Beauty runs from 14th March to 19th July and will be well worth a visit as it’s the largest collection looking back at McQueen’s work in Europe.

Fans of Audrey Hepburn will be flocking to National Portrait Gallery this summer to see their Portrait of an Icon exhibition. NPG have a range of photographic portraits spanning Hepburn’s life. These include fashion, film and philanthropic based photos from a range of photographers.

TV

There’s probably to much happening with TV shows to mention here but here’s a few that caught my eye and/or I enjoy watching.

Supernatural is celebrating it’s 10th birthday this year. It doesn’t feel like two minutes since we met demon hunter brothers Sam and Dean Winchester. Here’s to many more years on TV hunting demons, saving us from apocalypses, getting trapped in hell and singing and dancing for us.

 

Police show Blue Bloods reached it’s 100th show on 9th January. No small feat with the way shows get cut and cancelled these days. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic also celebrates it’s 100th episode later this year when season 5 airs.

37871045I’m excited to see Rizzoli & Isles return for Season 6 and Bitten for Season 2. Both are shows based on books so it’ll be interesting to see which direction they go in. A lot has happened in both series that’s nowhere close to the book so we can’t guess what’s going to happen next.

2015 seems to be Marvel’s year. New comics, Age of Ultron film and the premiere of the tv series Agent Carter. This started in US last week and I’m quite impressed with it. I’m so glad Hayley Atwell as stayed on as Agent Peggy Carter and remains kick ass and a true role model to women.

As shows begin others unfortunately end. This year sees Lost Girl end on season 5. I’ll be sad to see this sexy succubus go but I’m glad we get a proper ending especially after the ending we got on season 4. Bo, Kenzie, Lauren and Dyson we’ll miss you guys!

We’ll keep you updated throughout the year on these and many more happenings in the world of movies, tv and exhibitions. Until then enjoy the vast array of spectacular big and indie films out this year and keep your eyes peeled for other great ways to pass the hours.

Late Night Ramblings of a Girl Questioning Everything

So I’m not exactly questioning everything. I still have the same breakfast cereals when I wake up (if we have any left) and I still know that I can’t eat tumblr_lnb2iqy5qd1qi1i50too much pizza or cake… What a shame. I am however questioning things like am I too comfortable in my job. Do I really want to leave even though I know I need more hours? Would it be more beneficial to stay in bed all day snuggled up watching re-runs of Blue Bloods and Murder, She Wrote? These may seem like trivial questions but for someone like me they feel like they could change the outcome of my life.

REIGNThis post will probably be filled with questions that I don’t answer but it’ll give you an insight into my hectic life over the past week. Many of you won’t see the point to this post. One question that really upset me because there is no answer yet will the TV Series Reign be renewed? Trivial? Yes but I like the series and I’ll be upset if it’s cancelled. I think when you suffer from depression little things like this can make a difference. I’m not saying I’ll get depressed if they cancel the series but it makes you happy when they announce there’ll be more. It gives you something good to look forward to.

A good example is I had a job interview on Monday. I was a bit unsure on whether to go because I was questioning if I actually wanted the job. I know I need more hours and a job I can see myself in in 10 years time, Itumblr_mz3hghIQ331s7fd63o1_400 want some stability. If I get the job it means moving away and deep down this is what I want; the chance to start a new and make a place my own is very daunting but exciting for me. So why did I question going for the job? Well I’m comfortable at the store I work at. I enjoy my job and have some brilliant friends there. Okay I can make friends in a new job but I have trust issues which makes it hard for me to settle down and make friends. The friends I have are ones I trust a lot and will possibly be life long friends which I’m very grateful for. At the interview I did actually talk a lot to others which was surprising but really nice.

I won’t find out if I’ve got the job until next week or the week after. It’s a bit nerve racking but if I go on like normal it’ll all be fine. If I get the job I’ll be extremely happy if not I’ll probably stay in bed all week and act like no one wants me. It’s how life goes I’m afraid.

How my life feels when things go wrong.

Writing this has made me realise that everyone questions actions and decisions within their life some obviously a bit more than others. It’s making the best decision for yourself that is what matters. If I get offered this job away and I take it then I’m making the decision to leave my home life, family, friends and everything i’ve basically ever known to set up on my own. Scary right? But at the moment it will be the best decision for me and I’ll go for it even though I’m scared.

Remember questioning things means you care and are thinking ahead and that’s good!
