  1. This is proof that naive girls can learn and be empowered. Love it. :) I'll wait for the extended release date for this one!

    1. I don't expect we will see this one sooner than Autumn 2021, sadly, as Sky halted production on all their international filmings till next year.

  2. I believe I literally don't know any of the actors in this post! 🤷‍♂️ Sure, I've heard of those names Claire and Isabella but, I think I don't really like Claire. 😄

    1. You've missed out on a lot then, since Lex, Matthew, Tom, Ben and Liam are such amazing actors and also outstanding hunks respectively. Lex, a grandson of famous actress Deborah Kerr, has an almost magnetic screen presence and marvellous charisma, not to mention his dashing looks.

  3. I’ll have forgotten all about this by the time it becomes available. I suppose it will be a nice treat once it does.

    1. Yes, it will be like those pieces of clothing that we like to hide from ourselves outside the season.

    4. How exciting! I think I have some makeup I bought on clearance after Christmas that I have yet to find where I hid it. It will be a fun surprise when I do eventually stumble on it.

    5. Hope dogs don't find it first. I always have stashed cosmetics in my wardrobes, not so much because I hide it, but because I tend to buy everything when it is cheaper not when I need it, sometimes I have three or four months stashed of handcreams, medicines, toothpastes, handwashes etc. Not to mention I always have a well stocked box with stashed tea in my pantry, I think I bought my summer teas in the middle of winter.

    6. That's practical shopping though. I tend to buy on discount many things too to stash away for later use. We ain't got big monies where we can just throw it at full priced cosmetics like the rich folk do. Savvy shopping is where it's at for us minions.

    7. I probably wouldn't throw away money even if I could, I just wouldn't, I have too many traumas for that.

    8. Once poor and you will always respect the money.
