Powerful females talk about failure

Happy Monday everyone! I’m sure a lot of you are dreading tomorrow- back to work and the land of the living. To be honest I’m happy to be getting back into routine. The last week has been spent wondering what day it is and the inevitable ‘fear’, like several hungover Sundays in a row.

Anyway I’m catching up on some blog posts and I just came across this awesome article on stylecaster.com . It’s quotes about failure from a wide range of women with different careers. I hope it will help to prepare you for tomorrow and the coming year- whatever your goals may be.

My writings on Nocturnal Animals

Hi everyone, I know I haven’t graced you with a movie review in a while so here you go!


What’s it about?

Amy Adams stars as Susan, a gallery owner who receives a manuscript from her (estranged) ex husband Edward, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. He names it Nocturnal Animals, which refers to Susan and her inability to sleep. Along with the manuscript is an invite to dinner while Edward is in town. Susan soon becomes caught up in the novel, which is to be quite honest, disturbing (I’m not going to ruin it for you). It leaves you wondering the end of the story and of course, will she say yes to dinner.

What I liked about it?

Oh my God, it is so dark. It is so disturbing. I loved it. Oh and it has Michael Shannon in it.

What I didn’t like?

There was nothing I didn’t like about it. The cast was great. The ending wasn’t what I was expecting but it was the right ending overall.

Should you watch it?

OK, if you like thrillers and disturbing, haunting movies then yes, because you’ll love it. But if that might not be your cup of tea, you might want to avoid it.

If you have seen it please let me know what you think.

Wishing wanting working

I want to write, but Netflix is calling me.

I want to clean the kitchen, but my bed is calling me.

I want to be as big as Su and Jo, but I hate social media.

I want to be a successful as Stephen, but the words don’t always come.

I want Kylie’s lips, but I oppose plastic surgery.

I want clear natural skin, but I have to cover up that spot.

I want a flat stomach, but I hate exercise and love pizza.

I want my own house, but the bank will never give me a mortgage.

I want a funny nice guy, but he’s either non existent or doesn’t want me.

I want to be as happy as Jen at her age, but I want kids more.

I want to speak my mind more, but don’t want to come across as a bitch.

I want, I want, I want.

So I better go work, work, work.
