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.
Devon Rex – What to Expect When You Go Rexy
Firstly, a small anecdote (if you’ll indulge me). My husband resisted having pets for several years. I pleaded, cajoled and wheedled my heart out, but to no avail. His main reason, which was fairly justified, was that his father was allergic to pet hair – ergo having one wouldn’t be a clever idea.

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.
The Darker Meanings Behind Nursery Rhymes
If you’re a parent of children (or have children in the family), chances are that you’ve sung them a nursery rhyme or two in the past. There’s something about those catchy little tunes that kids love, and they’re useful for soothing babies to sleep or singing while playing a game.
9 Horror Movie Sets That Experienced Real Hauntings
There’s something fun about watching a horror film. If you’re like me, you’ll probably view it from behind the nearest cushion/friend’s shoulder, but nonetheless, fear-factor aside, it’s always an exhilarating experience.
The Five Most Frightening Creepypasta Stories
The internet has spawned many fun and fabulous user-driven sites over the years. However, there’s one that’s guaranteed to frighten: Creepy Pasta. Creepypasta (a mash-up of the words ‘creepy’ and ‘copypasta’ – viral copy-and-pasted content), has been around for several years, and over that time, has generated some legendary paranormal tales.
