Alien: Covenant Review

Image Copyright - Fox Movies

I have read so many raving reviews of Ridley Scott's latest addition to the origin stories of the popular Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant. I was excited to see the film because I really wasn't a huge fan of the previous instalment, Prometheus. I had high hopes that this film would be just as thrilling as the original movies but unfortunately, Alien: Covenant was a huge let down for me in more ways than one.

Alien: Covenant introduces us to the crew of colonisation vessel The Covenant. After a catastrophic accident in space, killing the Captain and some of the other passengers, the crew are forced to wake up early and fix the damage caused. When a rogue transmission is received, the crew discover it has come from a planet that seems ideal for human habitation. Shocked that they completely missed this perfect planet, they decide to land on it and explore where the transmission originated from, however, they soon discover a sinister secret on the surface that means life or death for the crew.

Let's Start Over



Hello, it's Becky. Long time, no speak. Grab a cuppa and I'll tell you where I've been.

[Trigger Warning: Depression, Anxiety, Break Ups, Deaths]

The last, let's say, eighteen months have been challenging for me. I won't go into detail but having to deal with relationship breakdown, starting a new job, moving house, and the death of relatives, has had a big effect on me and it's completely sucked the every drop of creativity I had out of my bones. I felt like I was losing grasp on blogging, as you can tell from the sporadic posts I managed to write up here and there. In fact, I felt like I was losing grasp on everything. I ended up seeing a therapist, as you might have read in a previous post. My mental health took a battering. It took a long time for me to feel okay again.

Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens Review*


I am an absolute sucker for glitter. I remember when I was about 13 years old, first getting into make up, and insisting on buying all the Urban Decay glitter eye liners. I was a glitter addict. A few months back I got the chance to try out the Spectrum Noir Colorista range and while I was browsing the website, I found the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens catch my eye.

When I was offered the chance to try out the Sparkle Pens I jumped at the chance! I was really interested to see how these glitter pens would perform, especially as I was impressed with the Colorista range. I thought the Sparkle Pens might be better for crafts too - I am a big lover of Christmas so I have visions of these pens being used heavily around the festive period!


Freedom Make Up 'Far Away Galaxy' Lipstick Collection Review


It's not every day you see a high street/drug store cosmetic company launch a collection of lipsticks inspired by Star Wars, but last year Freedom Make Up did exactly that with their 'Far Away Galaxy' lipstick collection.

The collection consists of five lipsticks of unusual and "out of this world" shades. Curiosity got the better of me when I purchased these. I'm usually a sucker for a bold red matte lip but something about having make up from one of my favourite films just made me have to buy them. I'm still not entirely sure what to make of this collection to be honest.
