The Sunday Catch up #24

alright blondie

Hey y'all! Long time no speak huh?

If you read this post you probably gathered that I haven't really been in a blogging state of mind lately. I've felt unmotivated and uninspired and I just couldn't be arsed. Then I went to Kendal Calling, did some overtime and before I knew it, it had been almost two weeks since I last posted anything. Buuuut I'm back now so Hi, how are you?

So the big news this week is that I *might* (spoiler alert: I did) have booked some flights for next year. If you follow me on Twitter you will already know where I'm going but if you don't (and you totally should it's full of pretty things and food talk) I'm going to LAS VEGAS and NEW YORK. How effing exciting is that? I got a right bargain too, seriously go check out STA Travel's multi city tool, it's ace.

I went to Kendal Calling last weekend and I have a couple of posts lined up so I won't go into too much detail but man I had a great time. I'm a Leeds Fest vet but I honestly think I've been converted. It's just so much smaller than Leeds Fest meaning you have a much better experience cos you don't have to walk a million miles in the mud to get anywhere.

This weekend how ever, I went to see the highly anticipated Suicide Squad. Now bar Christian Bale's Batman, I'm a Marvel girl all the way so I went into this feeling a bit meh. BUT I do love the cinema so I was quite happy to go watch it with Jody and keep an open mind. Now, I won't spoil it for ya but I really enjoyed it. Don't listen to the critics and go check it out. Sure there are some parts that feel a bit thrown together but it's actually really funny, full of action and colour and I loved Jared Leto's interpretation on the Joker - I thought he had the darkness of Ledger's and the wackiness of Nicolson's, creating a whole new take on the character. Hopefully him and Harley Quinn get their own movie soon!

I'm trying to be really good and not spend loads of money on clothes so I've got this new thing that I do when it comes to spending. Instead of buying various items over the course of the month, I'll add things to wishlists instead. If I still want it by the time the next payday rolls around, I treat myself. It's actually working out quite well cos by the time payday comes I've fallen out of love with said item or decided I don't actually need it. Seriously, the technique works. (If you were wondering what my treats were this month, I went for this dress and this dress from Missguided).

And that's all for this week! How was your week guys? Anybody seen Suicide Squad and want to share their thoughts in the comments?
