Hello! I'm an experienced copywriter, published author (The Case of the Green-Dressed Ghost) and all-round film buff and music obsessive. If it's weird, you can guarantee I'll like it. Website: www.lucy-banks.co.uk
Three Spirit Review - No-alcohol drinking...is it any fun?
I confess, I enjoy a tipple every now and then. Okay, more like every now. I've never been an excessive drinker, but I like a glass of wine most evenings, and admittedly, this might be taking its toll on my liver.
What to Expect from Your Healing Tattoo
Getting a tattoo is an exciting experience. However, after you've got your ink, it can be a nail-biting one too. Like any open wound, tattoos go through all sorts of strange healing processes—and they're also at risk of getting infected.
The Hidden Meaning of 'Return to Oz'

The Hidden Meaning of 'Mulholland Drive'
Firstly, a full disclaimer. I’m one of those annoying people who can’t just sit and watch a movie; I have to analyse every aspect of it. Admittedly, this is a little over-the-top when you’re watching a kid’s film. However, when you get presented with something as tangled and confusing as Mulholland Drive, it’d be rude not to.
