James Bond – Skyfall

Anybody who’s met me, knows I have a slight obsession with everything James Bond. Ok, a huge obsession. Fast cars, expensive gadgets, great clothes and gorgeous women? Who wouldn’t like that?

I love the latest two; Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. People were sceptical at first, me included, when fellow Scouser Daniel Craig took the role, but he’s done the codename 007 wonders. Having read the entire collection of Ian Fleming’s books, I can say that Daniel Craig is a great match, and captures the original essence of the books perfectly – the best since Connery in my opinion – not that I’m putting Pierce Brosnan’s performance down, or any of the other actors, they’re great films, but lately just they seemed like a totally different movie.

No Pictures, Please.

The other day I was out in town trying to do my Christmas shopping. I found a nice perfume which I was planning to come back and purchase. I have an awful memory, so I took a picture of said perfume. I received a tap on my shoulder:

“Please put your camera away, you’re not allowed to take photos in the store”

“Why not?”

“You’re just not. Please put your phone away or we’ll have to ask you to leave”

Can you believe it?

I was shocked. Stunned. Dumbfounded.

I had heard someone had recently been asked to leave a Tesco, that was because they were writing down prices.

All I was doing was noting what I was going to later purchase.

I shall take my pounds elsewhere then Boots. How do you like them apples?

The Walk Of Shame – Harvey Nichols

Great advert from DDB London for Harvey Nichols promoting their womenswear line.
We’ve all been there right? I remember when I was a little younger and a lot less wise, coming home from a party at 7 o’clock one fine summers morning. Feeling slightly worse for wear, I thought it was a great idea to get down and have a nap in the middle of the pavement, face down, only to be awoken by the fierce calls from the milkman. I can only imagine how it looked, and how bad I smelt. Oh to be 17 again, right? Wrong.

But anyway, I think the message is; buy your clothes from Harvey Nichols. Then you can get absolutely wrecked but still come home looking beautiful and in time for the mail.

Coca-Cola Truck Mythbusted

Of course I went! We arrived in the middle of Market Street around half two and queued up like 10 year olds to get our photo taken, we even got a free can of Coca-Cola!

It was quite surreal approaching the truck, as if I was fulfilling a childhood dream of mine.

I’ve well and truly busted the myth of whether or not the inside is full of Coca-Cola as well; it’s not.

As you can see, definitely not full of Coca-Cola as we all wanted to believe.

There was a lot of band equipment though but no band, I’m guessing we missed them.


Apologies

I apologise for the lack of confessions lately. I’ve been incredibly busy on my Aston Martin report for Principles of Marketing, that’ll teach me for leaving it a week before the deadline!

Please accept this video of a talking dog:

Aww, shucks.

Thank you to those who have taken the time to read my blog in the past week. I’ve had over 700 views so far which is amazing considering it’s only just gone live. I even noticed a few blogs floating around University that have decided to take inspiration from mine, imitation is the highest form of flattery, guys so thank you for reading and I hope I can come up with some more great posts you can all wish were yours.
