Movie review - The Gift (2015)

The Gift (2015) / psychological thriller

Directed and Written by Joel Edgerton
Produced by Jason Blum, Joel Edgerton and Rebecca Yeldham
Starring: Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, Joel Edgerton, Tim Griffin, Allison Tolman
Trailer: click.

Give yourself a gift and watch it!

A married couple, Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn Callum (Rebecca Hall), are living what appears to be a picture-perfect life. They move to a suburban Los Angeles neighborhood after Simon finds a new job. While out buying supplies for their new home, they run into Gordon "Gordo" Moseley (Joel Edgerton), a former high school classmate of Simon's who Simon claims to have completely forgotten about. Soon after, he begins dropping in unannounce and sends many gifts...

Did you know that this is Joel's feature debut? I was quite surprise when I learn that because it's great! Nice job Joel, I'm impressed! I love the style and the tone of this film and how it all unfolds step by step. And the psychology behind it. I'm not saying the plot or the characters are all perfect but damn good. Some things are sick and twisted and two times I jumped out of fear! Just watch it! It's a taut, well wrapped thriller that I will definitely put on my 2015 must see movies list! 4/5

Arya calendar 2015-2016

Tadaaaaa! Here it is! My new calendar/planner/notebook for 2015-2016!

For the 9th time in a row I bought Cosmo calendar and make it my own of course! :)

I printed many photos that I liked, cut them and than the hardest part - selection!

The cover this year was very nice so I only put fabulous on it!

This year I decdided to do less collages because it's hard to cover everthing so I picked bigger photos. Themes are different but of course all related to me and things I love - movies, writing, Ireland, love, animals, etc. I made some mistakes but that's ok. I used to be obsessed with the idea that everything must be perfect but now I see the beauty and work in these mistakes. And I only left a few pages like there were, two I think.

I also put little photos in to make it more colorful.

It's hard to pick my favorite pages but I guess I would say these ones.

I love it and it was once again worth the effort!

Summer bites (auch!)

Are you ready to finally see my summer bites? Well just a few of them. But I'm telling you, they don't look pretty...

Like I mentioned in one of my travelling post, this year everything was just fine till August. Then mosquitos start biting me and they weren't the only ones! I was stung by a jellyfish and some weird fly in Saint Tropez. And also back home I had some bites that were different from mosquito ones...

To be honest - in real this bites looked were even worse than they look like on picture. In most cases I usualy just left bite alone and try not to scratch it (too much:)) If the bite was bigger I cool it but didn't really use any after bite cosmetic products. Luckily I'm not allergic to any of it but it's still annoying and also painful :s

Yep! If there is something I don't miss about summer are bug bites for sure!

Energy deficiency

Hi guys!

This past week I'm having such an energy deficiency. I don't know if is it because of the rainy gloomy weather, too much work, lack of workout or combination of all three?

''I need more power!'' (quote from Ace Ventura) :)

I have more than 20 movie reviews coming your way, I will finally post my summer bites, my new calendar, etc. but step by step... I wish I could do it all and write more but time is limited and I also try to spend time away from computer. My eyes are killing me lately. Too much computer and screens!

Thank you for you patience and reading. How do you boost your energy?

Summer of 2015, part IV - Monaco, Pisa, Florance

Here it is. The last part of our summer vacation 2015... In case you missed first three posts: part I, part II and part III.

Monaco was very very nice and impressive. And with even more luxurious cars and yachts we've seen in Cannes. The city is really lovely and I wish we could stay here a day or two more. My favorite moment was driving around Monte Carlo F1 track. I don't know if I ever mentioned but I was a huge F1 fan when I was younger. My passionate self came alive and it was so exciting to see the F1 marks and the tunnel. Aaaaaa, so cool!

For the end of our journey we visit Pisa. I'm going to be honest. We've been staying in all these picture 'perfect' neat cities, so coming to Pisa was a bit weird. We planned only to see most popular sights. Leaning Tower was amazing to see. Any yes, we did all the typical poses :)

One our way back we stop by in Florance. I can only say: woooow (jaw drop)! What a breathtaking architecture! It's so amazing and inspiring. You can just put your phone away and admire it because it's hard to get the whole picture in the shot. We'll definitely come back for a few days to see more of it. Just beautiful! The only annoying thing - too much people!

So this is it. Our awesome vacation from summer of 2015! Happy and grateful for new amazing adventure <3
