Why epic villains are so important...

Everyone loves to have an awesome heroic protagonist in any blockbuster film, but in my opinion not enough credit is given to the villains.
Sauron the source of evil in The Lord of The Rings

No matter what genre of film you watch – fantasy, sci-fi, drama, horror, action – it is vital that the plot has a convincing ‘bad guy’. There to create conflict and cause havoc, villains are often the centre of the plot. Their evil encounters make them the iconic characters we love to hate.

It's so important to have villains in films who have real purpose, are actually threatening and sometimes even scary. A lot of the recent super hero films both from Marvel and DC haven't impressed me with their villains. It seems that they all want to take over the world, but they rarely have a good reason for doing so. Numerous movie antagonists seem to make bold statements but not actually execute any villainous acts.

Don't get me wrong, there have been some intriguing bad guys in recent films. For example, Kylo Ren from Star Wars The Force Awakens was a big hit with audiences straight away and that was no doubt down to the fantastic combination of his villainous appearance, numerous evil and threatening acts throughout the film, and his twisted backstory that made you want to know more about his decision to join the dark side. Kylo Ren is definitely a villain I look forward to seeing more of.

Similarly, I am a fan of Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Loki in the Marvel franchise. With his menacing grin, villainous laugh and powerful swagger he perfectly embodies the title: God of Mischief. Characters like this shock you with their acts of evil while also enticing you with their twisted personality – perfect for keeping you on the edge of your seat.

There are so many villains from older films that have made cinema history by becoming such iconic characters in popular culture. For example: Darth Vader, Sauron, He who must not be named (Voldemort), Darth Maul, and the multiple on screen incarnations of The Joker just to name a few. They were all fearsome and menacing villains with unique characteristics and dark backgrounds, this is exactly what I want to see more of in future films. The importance of illustrious antiheroes like these is exemplified by the excitement for the Darth Vader cameo in the upcoming Star Wars film: Rouge One. Science fiction fans were enthralled by seeing only a teasing glimpse of Vader in the trailers, thus proving the power of a legendary villain.

The evil exploits of a baddie is what gives shape to a plot and provides the hero with a job to do. Even in traditional fairy-tales there is usually a theme of good versus evil or right versus wrong. In my eyes the antagonist is just as important as the hero in any story and if both characters are perfect then it is bound to be a great film.

Let me know in the comments below who your favourite movie villains are. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Is Rey from Star Wars a Fashion Icon?

Ever since The Force Awakens hit the big screen people have been loving all things Star Wars. The film was a massive hit, even managing to introduce new fans to the franchise. For the first time ever a Star Wars film had a female lead, Rey, an orphan from Jakku who unknowingly possessed the powers of the force. She was awesome, heroic and a great inspiration to geeky girls everywhere. But is she a fashion icon as well?


Since the film was released and the popularity of this character rose, I have noticed a certain fashion trend that appears to be influenced by Daisy Ridley's Rey. Every shop I go in seems to have the 'cold shoulder' trend in stock and it definitely bears a resemblance to Rey's girl power inspiring outfit. So, yes I think Rey is definitely a trend setter and to celebrate her stylishness I've picked out my favourite cold shoulder looks to share with you.

Firstly I found this dusty pink skater dress from ASOS. I love the frilly shoulder accents as it adds a girly touch to what would otherwise be quite a plain dress. I have received so many complements when wearing this dress so it is clearly a popular look. I teamed the dress with a silver necklace and nude wedges. The cut out shoulders definitely remind me of our Star Wars heroine’s look from the film.


I also found this gorgeous silver plisse dress from Top Shop. Once again this dress is encompassing the cold shoulder trend inspired by Rey. This dress isn't the usual style I would go for as it actually reminds me of 1920’s fashion. However, when I tried it on I absolutely loved it and knew I had to have it. The lace detailing on the sleeves is beautifully delicate and the tie around the waist makes the dress gorgeously figure hugging. I think this dress would be perfect for the Christmas party season.

There we have it, those are my two favourite Rey inspired looks, but there are so many more to choose from as almost everyone seems to be sporting the cold shoulder look.

I think it's fabulous that a character from a science fiction film has had such a big impact on the fashion industry. It just goes to show how important it is to include strong inspiring female characters in films, as they are clearly very influential. You've got to love a bit of girl power!

What do you think about this Rey inspired fashion trend? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Pink Skater Dress – ASOS £25.00
Silver Plisse Dress – Top Shop £38.00

My MCM ComicCon Experience

MCM’s London Comic Con has been and gone in the blink of an eye and I had a fabulous time enjoying all the geeky goings on at the event.
It seemed super busy this year with the ExCell exhibition centre being packed out with cosplayers and nerdy fans alike. Even before I got to the event I was spotting people dressed as Harley and The Joker on the tube. It's always exciting arriving at comic con and the queues are never boring as you are continually entertained by spotting amazing cosplayers. For example near me in the entrance queue was a very tall Gandalf The Grey, a young Deadpool, Spinelli from Recess and a whole host of other characters from nerd culture. It was brilliant. I always am amazed by the quality of peoples cosplays and the time and effort they put into creating their outfits.

When I finally got inside the venue I couldn't decide what to see first as I was thoroughly spoilt for choice. I made my way around the art stalls where lots of extremely talented artists were exhibiting their geek themed work. There was so much amazing art to choose from. I bought these super cute cartoon Star Wars pictures that I fell in love with instantly.


I then weaved my way through the masses of exhibitors while admiring all of their geek themed merchandise. One thing I noticed is that MCM's London Comic Con now seems to cover a wider range of fandoms than ever before. Whether you're interested in anime, manga, sci-fi, fantasy, comics, games or anything else geeky, I'm pretty sure you would find something you enjoy at this awesome event.
MCM also provided fans with the opportunity to meet cast members of their favourite geeky films and shows. I decided not to pay to meet any of the celebrities at this event but I did spot Warwick Davis and Peter Davison as I passed by their stands.

There were so many cool things to see and do at this Comic Con so I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I even got to pose as a ghostbuster by a gargantuan Stay Puft Marshmallow Man statue. But I have to say my highlight of this Comic Con was definitely being a queen for a few moments as I sat on the famous Iron Throne!

Comic Con is such a wonderful way of celebrating nerd culture and I love it to bits. I had such a wonderful day exploring all there was to see and I can't wait till next time. If you've never been to an event like this, I highly recommend it.

Buffy Inspired Autumn Look

With autumn leaves coating the ground and Halloween just around the corner I’ve been trying out some nineties grunge themed outfits inspired by everyone’s favourite vampire slayer- Buffy! This time of year always makes me want to dress in dark colours with big chunky boots which we all know is statement slayer style. So, I have picked out some of my favourite items and have created a nineties autumnal look to share with you.

Boots - New Look £29.99

The first item I chose for this look was a gorgeous pair of chunky lace up ankle boots from New Look. These are also available in black but I chose to get them in dark red to match the natural shades of autumn and add a pop of colour to my outfit. These boots are super comfy as they only have a slight heel and they keep your feet lovely and snug in the cold weather. I love everything about these boots – they are perfect for kicking some demon butt!

Velvet scruchie - Boots £1
Nineties style was all about the accessories and velvet was a key trend. Therefore, the next item I used in this outfit was a black velvet scrunchie from Boots. Another similar accessory you could add to this look is a velvet chocker necklace. I am continually seeing velvet clothes and accessories in shops at the moment, so this trend is definitely making a comeback. The second accessory I added to this look was a silver crucifix necklace which was a style staple worn by Buffy.

With Halloween on the horizon I have been absolutely loving the dark colours in my wardrobe. To give this look a darker feel I added a black turtleneck crop-top. This top is fantastic as it adds a sleek feel to any outfit and is great for both nights out and everyday wear. It is very tight fitting but made of a stretchy material so is therefore really comfy to wear and perfectly shows off your figure.

Tartan skirt - New Look £19.99
A nineties look really wouldn’t be complete without a mini skirt. I chose this red tartan skirt from New Look. It’s made of a nice thick material which makes it perfect for the colder autumn and winter months. This skirt adds some colour to this dark outfit and is ideal for giving a retro nineties feel to any look.


There we have it a completed Buffy inspired autumnal look. If you add a stake then it’s a perfect cosplay for Halloween or you can be like me and just wear it as an everyday autumn look.

Boots – New Look £29.99
Velvet scrunchie - Boots £1
Necklace - Old
Top – Old
Skirt – New Look £19.99

Let me know what you think of this style in the comments below.

Sexism in Gaming

I wrote this blog post quite a while ago, but for some reason I didn’t upload it. I don’t know whether it was because I felt embarrassed about how passionate I was or because I thought maybe I was overreacting. Recently I have been thinking about it again and I decided to post it because no matter what other people may think of you, it is so important in life to stand up for what you believe is right. So here is my story:

Today something strange happened. I was happily chatting with a group of friends about gaming when one of the guys said: “well, you don’t know anything about games really”. Quite surprised by this statement I laughed it off and replied: “I mean I wouldn’t call myself a gamer, but I do play games”. This was greeted by a high pitched impression of me saying: “Oh yeah Wii!”. It was at this point I began to feel a little offended.

Is he being sexist? I thought to myself. I had not really encountered anything like this in a while but found myself being angered by my friend implying that I wouldn’t play what he called “proper games” simply because I am female.

I have never called myself a feminist because in modern times I haven’t really witnessed people being sexist (apart from the odd old man). But this made me fell so small. It was like he was looking down on me and making assumptions because of my gender. I was so shocked that in this day and age people could still be so prejudicial. When I said he was being a bit sexist he didn’t see any problem with what he had said and continued to make more assumptions about me.

Now, I don’t at all see myself as a games expert. Far from it! In fact the majority of the time I am too busy to play games, but when I do I really enjoy it. This year I’ve played a range of games: Batman Arkham Knight, Until Dawn, Bloodbourne, Rocket League (which I’m not the best at), Minecraft, FIFA 15, GTA V (a bit behind on the trend there I know), Star Wars Battlefront, Injustice, Game of Thrones and more... I’ve probably played a wider range of games this year than the individual who was judging me.

I am sure that what this guy said to me is a minority opinion and not all men are so judgemental of female gamers... at least I hope so anyway. Either way I am not going to let one individual’s ignorance bother me. He probably felt threatened by the fact that he could maybe be beaten in a game by a girl. I genuinely don’t think he understood why what he had said was wrong. We are brought up with the mentality that girls should play with dolls and boys should play football, but this is wrong. On a positive note, from what I have seen in the media, I do believe this is changing. Children are now being taught that they can be whatever they want to be and they don’t have to adhere to stereotypes. Teaching new generations these values is an important step in being more accepting as a society. I hope that in the future less people will experience sexism or any other judgmental behaviour like this.

Please let me know in the comments if any of you have experienced a similar situation, as I would love to hear your views on the matter.

Mac Star Trek Collection: LLAP review

When I heard that Mac were releasing a Star Trek collection I just had to check it out! I looked at the fantastic range of out of this world makeup and I decided to buy the LLAP (live long and prosper) lipstick. I knew a lot of other people (particularly girly Trekkies) would be interested in the product as well, so I have written a helpful Mac LLAP review.


Appearance:
I would describe the colour as a shimmery rose gold/bronze. Mac describes the lipstick as a frost which means it has a sparkly finish to it.  The lipstick isn't as pigmented as some other Mac products but I still really like the colour on its own or as a layering colour. Initially I was worried this shade would look too cold on my pale skin but once I applied it I actually thought it worked well and created a really pretty Autumn/Winter look.

Quality:
Mac are famed for their top quality products, so I had high expectations for how this lipstick would wear and I wasn't disappointed. As soon as I applied the product it felt very moisturising and creamy. This product is fairly long lasting and didn't smudge even without lip-liner.
How I would wear it:
As Autumn is now upon us, frosty bronze colours are coming back into fashion and this lipstick is perfectly suited for the season. I would wear this lipstick with either bronze or warm pink eye-shadows, reflecting the autumnal colours of nature. Team this with a pink blush and you're ready for a pumpkin spice latte and a leaf fight!


I have to say I love this lipstick, I think it is really pretty and feels so nice to wear for a night out or during the day. I would definitely recommend it. In fact I am quite tempted to try out a few of the other products in the Mac Star Trek collection.

Let me know in the comments what you think of LLAP or any of the other beauty products in the Mac Star Trek collection, as I would love to hear your views.

The Games Of My Childhood

Children nowadays are surrounded by technology and are continually glued to mobile phones, tablets and gaming devices that are much more advanced than anything pre-millennium kids had. So, to all those like me who feel nostalgic at the sight of a wired controller, this blog post is for you. I’m going to share with you some of my favourite childhood games.



Pokemon
When my mum bought me and my brother a Game Boy Colour to share I was thrilled beyond belief. It seemed like the most amazing technology. Being able to take my Game Boy with me everywhere was so exciting, as I could carry on my Pokemon adventure wherever I wanted. Of course now it seems mad to me that Pokemon Go exists! Pokemon was definitely the most played game on my Game Boy. I had numerous different versions but my favourite two would have to be Pokemon Yellow as I could have Pikachu follow me around and Pokemon Crystal as I could finally play as a girl! Pokemon advanced onto various Nintendo devices and has now emerged on smart-phones. The fact that this game franchise has survived so many years and is now exciting a whole new generation proves its brilliance.





Spyro
This was without a doubt one of my favourite PlayStation games. I first got Spyro Year of the Dragon on PlayStation One and fell in love instantly. It encompassed a range of quirky characters in a fantasy adventure to save the dragon eggs!
This game had so many levels with beautiful aesthetics. Of course the graphics now seem very dated compared with current games but at the time the vivid colours, creative designs and flexibility of what you could do and where you could go amazed me. Spyro will always be my favourite in-game hero.

Simpsons Hit And Run
The next entry on this list can only be described as a child friendly version of GTA: it's Simpsons Hit and Run. This game saw everyone's favourite cartoon family solving the mystery of a seemingly evil company 'Buzz Cola' while taking on various driving missions on the streets of Springfield. This game was so much fun as it let you play as various different characters in multiple locations and even had a zombie level.

Mario
Mario is another Nintendo great. The Mario games have come a long way over the years, even switching from a classic arcade style to more of a 3D look. Mario has made it onto my list because of how well the game has survived and developed over the years from something that began as a very simple game about a plumber saving a princess. There's now almost too many Mario games to choose from, gaming fans are thoroughly spoiled for choice.


The Harry Potter Games
Roaming the halls of Hogwarts as everyone's favourite boy wizard was an amazing experience as a child.
Looking back on the first game in particular now it had very basic graphics and simple missions, but I loved it anyway. It encouraged players to solve puzzles throughout the game and enabled you to feel like you were really at Hogwarts. I have to admit that I didn't play through all of the Harry Potter games but out of the ones I had the second was my favourite (even if it seemed impossible to drive the flying car).


So there we have it! Five of my favourite childhood games explained. Let me know in the comments what games you loved growing up.

Why I love the 'Geek Community'

I have had my blog for well over a year now and have immersed myself in the online 'geek' community. I have been interacting with other bloggers, conversing with fellow nerds over film releases and sharing numerous geek themed pictures on Instagram... And I have to say I love it.
I'm a very happy geek!
The geek community seems to be so friendly and everyone takes a keen interest in what each individual shares online. Whether you're a crafty creative who sells homemade nerdy merchandise, a budding cosplayer or someone who just enjoys seeing what others share online, the geek community is the place to be!

I have had so many great experiences at geek themed events
Although I have thankfully not experienced it myself, I know some female geeks have been subject to sexist and derogatory comments online when posting geeky content. However, this seems to be a minority and the rest of the community is so positive, kind and friendly that it doesn't put people off. I have had so many kind and encouraging comments both on my blog and my Instagram account which makes me want to post content more and more, proving that geeks are kind, complimentary and support each other.

The thing I love most about the online geek community is that you can interact with people from different parts of the world and all share the same nerdy hobbies. It's a wonderful opportunity to make friends and learn about other cultures.

Geeks also know how to have fun and don't take themselves too seriously. You can attend comic conventions, gaming events, book signings and more, while meeting a range of interesting geeky individuals.

I love writing this blog and have connected with so many lovely people through doing this. I hope I continue to adore and be included in this community of harmonious geeks for many years to come.

Have you had any particularly positive experiences within geek culture? Let me know in the comments below as I would love to hear your stories.

Star Wars Celebration

Last weekend I went all out geek as I attended the Star Wars Celebration Europe on Saturday. I was bursting with excitement for the event, especially as I had bought the tickets over a year ago so had endured a long anticipation filled wait. I have always been a big Star Wars fan but had never been to one of the celebrations before, so as this year it was in London (my home turf) I jumped at the opportunity.

There was so much going on at the event: merchandise stalls, panels, drone displays and exclusive reveals about upcoming films in the franchise. It was like a big comic-con dedicated solely to Star Wars.

One of the first things I saw was a display of the costumes and models used in the filming of the upcoming Rogue One movie. It was awesome to see up close how detailed the costumes were and get an insight into how the film would look. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the soon to be released film. I’ve been particularly interested in Rogue One as it is set between episodes III and IV of the Star Wars films and therefore I am intrigued to see how the film blends in and what it adds to the story arc of the franchise.

Another highlight of the day was seeing Propel’s Star Wars drone display. It was an acrobatic drone demonstration showcasing drones with the aesthetics of vehicles from Star Wars films, including the famous Millennium Falcon.

Sadly I couldn’t afford to meet some of the amazing Star Wars cast members that were at the event but I did get to see a few of them onstage on The Star Wars Show which was streaming live from the event.





There were lots of photo opportunities with iconic props and vehicles from the films and of course there were numerous fabulous cosplayers.

By the end of the day my feet were aching from all the walking around the event, but I didn’t care because I had an amazing geeky day out. The event only made me more excited for the forthcoming additions to the Star Wars film franchise and now I just can't wait for Rogue One!

A geeky trip to Madame Tussauds

Recently I took a trip to Madame Tussauds (a wax museum in London). I hadn't been there since I was about 12 years old so I was intrigued to see how it had changed. It turned out I was in for a treat. Not only had the attraction changed but it had improved and catered very well to geeky people like me.

Along with my boyfriend Luke, I wandered round the main celebrity waxwork displays getting selfies with everyone from politicians to pop stars.


We giggled away, amused by seeing the Queen and Miley Cyrus in such close succession. Then we arrived in the section we had been waiting for: the superhero displays.
My moody X-men face

We saw some of our favourite heroes brought to life through wax. We excitedly dashed round like children, getting our pictures taken with the wax incarnations of Spiderman, Hulk, Wolverine and more.

We then patiently queued up to see the Marvel 4D experience where we were transported through a cinematic adventure, where Captain America led us and numerous popular Marvel heroes through a mission in central London.

Then we came to the grand finale... The Star Wars exhibit!

We were greeted by Jedi's from the prequel movies: Qui Gon Jinn and Ewan McGregor's Obi Wan Kenobi. We then saw a moody looking Anakin Skywalker before spotting everyone's favourite smuggler (Han Solo).
Who shot first?

After getting a few pictures sat opposite Han in the famous Mos Eisley Cantina, we moved on to meet the popular droid double act (C3P0 and R2D2) and then sat with Chewbacca in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.

As if this wasn't already enough excitement we turned round the corner and were suddenly in Yoda's swamp. After striking a few Jedi training poses we moved on to: meet Mr Vader himself, take a seat in Jabba's Palace (minding the Rancor pit) and jump into a father son battle from Episode VI with the Emperor looking over our shoulder.

Finally we had one last Star Wars treat and of course it was in the form of a new addition to the cast: BB8.

We had such a fantastic day out and really enjoyed ourselves. I really recommend Madame Tussauds, it's a great place for family's with children or just big kids like me!

Why I'm excited for Beauty and the Beast

As you may have already heard there is a new Disney princess movie due to be released next year and it is a live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

If you don’t know the story already, Beauty and the Beast is a classic fairytale about a young woman named Belle who falls in love with a monstrous prince. Disney’s animated telling of the tale came out in cinemas in the early nineties, so it’s clearly time for an update.

I don’t normally get hyped up about Disney films but I have to say that I’m actually quite excited for this release and here’s why...


  •  Firstly this film has a fantastic cast. Emma Watson is taking on the role of Belle and Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens is playing the beast. It seems pretty perfect right? Not to mention that Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci are also members of this fairytale cast!

  • Then there’s the fact that Belle is a brilliant role model for young girls. Not only is this Disney princess beautiful but she’s got brains too! Belle has a thirst for knowledge and uses her book-smart ways to help others as well.

  •  Another reason I am excited is because of Disney’s recent track record with remakes. In recent years we’ve seen classic stories such as Cinderella and The Jungle Book be brought to our screens and for me they were bigger and better than ever before. This makes me even more excited to see what delights are in store for us with this adaptation of this popular fairytale love story.

  •  As well as this, the Beauty and the Beast story also has a great message. It tells a heart-warming tale with the clear moral that you should never judge a book by its cover (or a beast by his claws).

  • Lastly, have you seen the teaser trailer? It looks amazing. It doesn’t give too much away yet but reveals some beautiful shots of the mansion the story is centred around. I am definitely intrigued to see how the film will turn out.

So that’s why I’m so excited for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast film and you should be too. I can’t wait to see it!

Is there any classic Disney film you would like to see remade? Let me know in the comments below.

Back To Blogging & Funko Pop!

I’ve been away from blogging for a while, but I promise I am back for good. The reason I’ve been away is because I have been finishing off the final year of my degree. Now I have completed all my work I have moved back home and am currently sorting out a lot of boxes! When going through all of my belongings I was thinking about the amount of geek themed possessions I have and without a doubt my favourites are my Funko Pop Vinyls.

Baby Groot making a friend
I first came across these cute collectables a couple of years ago and fell in love with them instantly. They are great for decorating your house in true nerd style and are also fun to collect.



These simplistic Funko figures have a really modern aesthetic so they look great lined up on your shelves. They are great for kids too as the variety of characters available spans films, TV shows, comic books and more.


I only have six Pops as I seem to be quite well restrained but I have seen numerous people online who have hoards of them. I can completely understand how easy it is to get carried away as there is such a vast range of characters and designs to choose from.






My boyfriends Hulk looking a little moody!
My little collection so far consists of Tinkerbell, Sauron, Gonzo, Dancing Groot, Darth Vader and Boba Fett.

So, if you haven’t seen these little beauties before I definitely recommend you treat yourself to at least one. They are so adorable and wonderfully detailed. Plus, it is a great way to show your appreciation for your favourite characters!

My Reaction To Star Wars

So, 20 years old and about to see a Star Wars film in the cinema for the first time... I cannot explain the excitement that was building up inside of me. Is it okay for me, as an adult, to be this excited about a science fiction film? My answer is: yes, of course!
My Star Wars themed outfit... too cringe?
Giant Lego Yoda!
It's Star Wars. What can I say? It's probably one of the most famous franchises in the world and the newest addition has been smashing box office records. It's been hyped up like crazy and for good reason.

I booked to see the film in IMAX 3D as I wanted it to be the best experience possible. I bought my drink and popcorn and found my seat in the cinema with my friends.

Obviously we were all excited, but I also felt nervous. "What if it's not as good as I want it to be?" I thought to myself. But these worries were pushed aside by the enthralling thought that I was about to see a Star Wars film, in the cinema, in IMAX, in 3D, for the first time ever!

Some may think it's childish to have such extreme feelings about a film. Those people are wrong. Even adults need escapism and being transported through film to a long time ago in a galaxy far far away is pretty damn good escapism. Star Wars doesn't have a set target audience it can appeal to people of any age, gender or background. That's what makes it so great.
Love a good geeky joke!
So as I sat there in the packed out cinema I was filled with joy and I'm not afraid to admit it. When the trailers ended and 'that famous phrase' appeared on the screen the audience fell completely silent... It gave me goosebumps. Then it happened... The epic Star Wars theme began and the opening titles setting the scene scrolled off into space. I genuinely sat there welling up. I was so happy.

So yeah... I'm a Stormtrooper in my spare time
I never cry in films. I must stress this. I am strong willed and have sat through Titanic, Marley and Me and The Fault in Our Stars without shedding a single tear. But in Star Wars The Force Awakens I was so emotional throughout the entire film. There was not a single second where I was bored. I had continual feelings of joy, shock, excitement, amazement and a teeny bit of sadness (I won't say when for spoilers). I honestly have never experienced a reaction like it when watching a film for the first time but it truly was an epic adventure that everyone should love!

I was sceptical when I found out Disney were taking over Star Wars but they have done a brilliant job with episode seven. I can only hope that Star Wars continues to be brilliant and will hopefully live on forever.

Am I the only person who had this reaction? Let me know in the comments below and if you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for? An incredible experience awaits!
