    1. I did try to choose photos very carefully. I even changed them at one point, at first the post was supposed to be blue, with them all wearing blue dresses, but I changed my mind.

    1. I remember that I liked the movie, but I was a kid then, so it is possible I wouldn't like it now, especially as I cannot stand Wynona Rider.

  3. I can get behind all 3 of these today. I’d watch Eva in just about anything. She is so stinking gorgeous. Though Blood Sugar might be the one I’m looking forward to a trailer the most.

    1. I was intrigued by Blood Sugar as well as I love Dragon's Den, the UK version of Shark's Tank. They always have such fun products. I just hope it won't be too bloody and bizarre LOL Will she turn the sharks into her frozen food LOL

  4. The Henna Artists become a popular here very soon because movies (or songs) from India and South Korea are so popular here.

    1. Yes, they air horrible Indian TV series here as well, sadly, but Turkish ones are still more popular, methinks and they have taken over totally from the Latino ones.

  5. House of Spirits for the win today! Sounds juicy without being too over the top. I'm on the hunt for a juicy, light hearted book these days since I'm currently stuck in the middle of a dreadful one. Maybe I'll give them a read too.
