I've been remiss in my blog posts for two weeks or so :( Here is a little catch up of what I can remember!
Had a lovely Sunday morning brunch with our "Ladies who Brunch" gang. One or two new people added so lots of good conversation. Afterwards we went to Vino's on Duval Street (which is actually owned by one of the brunchers!) and had some bubbles so that was a really nice end to the day.
It was my mam's birthday last week and Lydia went home to visit with the baby. The baby lol! She is about 18 months old now.

So funny, you wait ages for a good film and then two come along at once.
First up! Oppenheimer. I went to see this in the Tropic (yay!) with Patrick, and simply put, I thought it was exceptional. Thought provoking and beautiful. Entertaining, yet challenging. And of course no surprise, I thought Cillian Murphy was just wonderful, I am tagging him now for the oscar.
Barbie. Well, I have to say that I had the most wonderful evening going to see this with my Barbies, or "Squad" as we like to call ourselves. We all dressed up and (see pic below) didn't we look great??? Afterwards we retired to The Saint for appetizers, cocktails and movie discussion. I really, really enjoyed Barbie. But I guess I was not as wowed with it as a I thought it would be? Like it was really beautiful, stylistically and thematically. I thought the mother daughter storyline was just gorgeous. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED America Ferrara's inspirational monologue. And everything resonated with me (ugh! unfortunately). But I came out of the cinema just a little underwhelmed. But....now as I type...I am feeling it more and more. Hmmm. Imagine that.
In summary, as you've guessed, my favoured film was Oppenheimer.
....but my favourite photos are Barbie! Lol
