7 Heartbreaking Moments in An Affair to Remember

After taking part in the History Blogathon and mentioning An Affair to Remember, it made me want to watch it again. In the process it also meant that I am inspired to write this post. The film really does break your heart so many times, it’s quite crazy! So I have picked seven times it manages to do just that. But it could actually be more than seven really.

Star for a Day Competition

This blog post is my enter into the Star for a Day competition – read more about it here!

My pick of character will come as no surprise. Elphaba from Wicked!

Itinerary

Day time activity – Go to meet the Wizard so head to Harry Potter Studios

Pre-show activity – Munchkins Restaurant (38 Great Russell St, London WC1B 3PP)

Show – Wicked

Post-show activity – The Green Man Pub (57 Berwick Street, Soho, London, W1F 8SR)

Explanation

Elphaba is a truly inspiring character who never gives up on her dreams. The biggest being to meet the Wizard, so she is bound to find at least one Wizard at the Harry Potter Studios, and I am sure she can learn an extra spell or two as well. Then for some food what better place to head than the Munchkins Restaurant, they are a very big part of Oz after all, in a place that has a big Wizard of Oz theme she would feel right at home. Then to she herself defy gravity and fly at the show of Wicked and then what better way to finish off the day than a drink in The Green Man Pub, after all she wouldn’t be the only green person anymore and might feel a little better about herself!

Musical Moments – Oklahoma!

I went to see the latest UK touring production of Oklahoma over the weekend (review will be up soon) so that is why I have decided to post a couple of videos for this week’s Musical Moments.

Ok so it’s Monday so your thinking no it really cannot be a beautiful morning, so I decided to even it out by picking Hugh Jackman’s performance ;-)

Also a clip from one of my favourite films ‘When Harry Met Sally’ involving Billy Crystal and a karaoke machine as he sings a little bit of ‘Surrey with a Fringe on Top’ <3
