In other news - is anyone else being totally pwned by Beautiful Creatures right now?

So of course I've read other YA series like The Hunger Games, Hush Hush - although I got bored with Fallen and totally stopped - but a friend of mine recommended Beautiful Creatures a few months ago...

I watched the trailer for the movie, which ticked a lot of my interests' boxes:

Boy meets girl he can't have - check
Magical mystery - check
Historical flash backs - check
Set in the deep South - yes ma'am

So I ordered the book.

It then sat on my "to read pile" for the following few months.

I was finally able to read it over Christmas and I. Am. Hooked.  I can't help myself Pinteresting (that's a verb, right?) behind-the-scenes clips, costume inspirations and music links - Florence and the Machine's "Seven Devils" is on repeat) - I even bought the Illustrated Movie Guide!

I'm kind of loving being a little but pwned by something again :) but the BC fandom seems a little quiet... is anybody else out there?

P.s. Not only is this film's Production Design by Richard Sherman *cough* from Breaking Dawn gorgeousness *ahem* but it stars Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis and Alden Ehrenreich who was "discovered" by Steven Spielberg himself *DING* sign me up!

Sooo it's been a while... New/Old pics from Breaking Dawn Part 2 UK premiere :)

Hello, helloo, hellooo?

Echo, echoo, echooo...

I missed you guys!  I'm so sorry I've been MIA for, ummm, quite a while :) it wasn't an intentional break but work went from zero to hyper-ludicrous speed and the Twidom got a little too eeek... I just ran plain ran out of steam.

I even had to send my lucky London bud @Barnsie_ along to the BDP2 red carpet but managed to join her in time for the screening - here's her take and pretty pics from the night:
I was beyond excited when Laura gave me the chance of covering the red carpet for the BD 2 premiere on 14 November.
As I only had 24 hours to prepare, friends and followers on twitter and imdb provided me with over thirty insightful and original questions for the main cast.
Sadly I could not manage to buy an amazing camera / video camera in time, so the photos are from my smartphone only, and I thought I had taken a lot more than I have, but hopefully you will love them :)
I arrived early in the press pen as I am small and I wanted to try and reserve a front row space.  Whenever I have been to premieres, I am always amazed at how friendly everyone is.  It is exactly the same on the press pen.  Everyone chatty and excited, and exchanging stories.  I loved it!
We were originally told we could ask TWO questions to the three main cast members, and that other talent on the carpet would include Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey, Myanna Buring, Jamie Campbell Bower and Judy Shekoni.  Not forgetting Rebecca Adlington, Nutty Madam, The Saturdays, one of JLS, TOWIE cast members and XFactorUK contestants.
I went for a little walk with @frompagetopremiere @sarahnapier as they took footage of the fans, went to say hi to my friends behind the barriers, hung out ... the time whizzed past.  And then the chaos began!
The cast were running late and some of us (me included) were told at this stage that questions were forbidden but we could get as much footage from the press nearby.
With 3 cinemas showing the film, there were MANY MANY people to get along the red carpet, and as soon as people realised a cast member was nearby, they walked r-e-a-l-l-y s--l--o--w--l--y, trying to delay their entry into the cinema.
The three main stars came really close and were interviewed by the people around me - ET Canada,  From Page to Premiere, Cosmopolitan UK, Star MagazineRTL Croatia and Chart Show TV. I could have asked a question, even though I had been told not to.
If I had realised how good my smartphone was for video and photographs I would have taken many more especially of Robert hugging his sister Victoria right in front of me. 
I got to see Taylor, Robert and Kristen, close up and chatting to the journalists near to me.  
But next time, next time... I would definitely take someone with an amazing camera, and would have no hesitation is asking questions.  I am just too shy!

You so pretty. Hold me?

(Videos pending)
Thanks you Laura for an amazing opportunity and a great day, and I promise to be more bold and pushy next time :)
I can't believe it's all over *tear* I got so emotional at the credits - not only because I seriously bought that whole alternative ending and was FREAKING OUTTT, but - it was such the perfect closure to the series and I felt so nostalgic for all the fan-girling, friends and fun times and it's brought me...
