World Tapir Day

It’s World Tapir Day….a what day? Yes. like me you may of had an inkling as to what a Tapir is, or not have had a clue! Well, turns out that these mammals are quite often mistaken for some odd species of pigs or anteaters (thanks to their snouts and hoofed toes), but in actual fact the closest living relatives to a Tapir are horses and rhinos (other odd toed ungulates – aka hoofed animals)!

Check this Tapir out…just chillin’ catching a few rays

St Georges Day…Things we do that make us proud to be English

And maybe a bit British too…

April 23rd, St George’s Day is the day when England remembers St George, our patron saint. It remembers the the anniversary of his death and is seen as our national day. According to the legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess. Definitely a fairytale as well as a legend, it involves a princess after all! Today is a day not only for remembering this gallant knight but also to be grateful and joyful and all happy words ending in “ful” about being English, a lot of which we must admit is shared by the whole of Britain :) Today we look at everything that reminds us how English we are, what awesome traits, funny habits, yummy but possibly odd favourite foods we have and things that are quintessentially English!

The Romantics – Mills and Boon host the Romance Awards

Some may say romance is dead; that we may not see the importance of romance any more with our crazy hectic lives. But are they wrong? There are so many more ways to create romance now and much more exciting romantic gestures than a bunch of flowers (although I still love a bunch of flowers as a gift)! From starlit roof-top cinemas, photoshopped personalised cards, personalised engraved mobile phones covers!! We haven’t even started on the creative proposals that we’ve heard of! Mills and Boon are the classic and modern romantics combined; with their classic romance novels to their modern erotic love stories!

Celebrate the ‘Vinyl Revival’ this Record Store Day 2015

The Guardian have said “Don’t call it a comeback, because it’s not one”, but that seems like a bit of a pessimistic view on the state of record sales in 2015. This month has seen the launch of the UK’s first weekly vinyl chart, record sales are at their highest in 18 years and a format once dubbed ‘obsolete’ is getting the nation buzzing, as Saturday 18th April is the UK’s 8th Record Store Day.

Child 44 – It won’t disappoint

In celebration of Child 44 being released today, we wanted to bring to your attention how much of a talented actor Tom Hardy is. Not only is he talented but also very sophisticated and intelligent and beautiful and..sorry, getting carried away.

Set in the Stalin era Soviet Union, Hardy plays Leo Demidov a member of the military police who is investigating a series of child murders. He stars alongside Gary Oldman(The Book of Eli, Lawless) & Noomi Rapace, so it’s sure to be a fantastic watch. If you’ve got a quiet weekend planned, why not hit the cinema and check it out?

Anyway, back to the more serious point at hand, I give to you, Tom Hardy in all his glory

 

Here he is, doing his thing, lookin’ all cute.
