So please can we just all take a moment to appreciate how sexy this man is....
I finally went to see Rogue One. Yes once again late to the party. It left me very ... in love and heartbroken. And the very last scene. But I didn't cry. Like at all. Actually find this strange and hoping to see it again soon.
And now I have seen the Rogue One 3 times. Cried once. I still can't work out the relationship between the leads due to the general broodiness of Diego Luna's Cassian. Mhmm....

If you are following me on twitter or Facebook you might know that last Sunday I took the child to see Moana. It is rate PG in UK so there are some scary moments but we have watched the songs in YouTube with bits from the film and little Egg didn't blink twice. But he loved the music.
Oh what a wonderful film it is. The child only lasted about 20mins. And there weren't many kids in the audience, which is strange for early showing on Sunday so I have to take his little wiggle bum out.
It was very lucky I saw it before. This film is absolute beauty. Music, songs, colours and characters are wonderful! Oh and fun fact one of the composers and writers Lin-Manuel Miranda actually has Tony, Emmy, Pulitzer, Grammy and MacArthur Fellowship! What?! No wonder music and songs are so great!
Even the BBC Women's hour said that they love Moana since she isn't a princess and has no love interest in the film.
I loved it because it tells a good story of love, courage, listening to your senses and and beautiful and atmospheric film. I cannot wait to get it when it is released.
And most definitely recommend it to anyone!

I have made a cheese pie today. According to my hubby it's not a pie it's more of a pasty. I told him it's a Russian cheese pie. And my award winning chef if the hubby is ok with it... it's puff pastry, mature cheddar, mozarealla, butter and egg oh and egg wash.
As I was smelling it backing away in the oven, I was remembering my grand mother. She passed away a while ago, I actually don't remember how long we don't have her with us. But I do remember her. Her soft hangs, kind and nurturing persinalty. Gosh I could have A in maths if she was alive then, she was a maths teacher. And she taught me to saw, embroider and encouraged my crafty nature in any way.
It is nice when you think of family members when they passed away you just feel all warm and cozy inside. Lots of love to you all xx
December can be stressful and it actually was. Get everything ready, keep doing the usual things on top of festive things... so it was nice to get some little presents daily.
There are a lot of beauty advents around. Feel like the market just almost exploded with them in 2016. But then again I might be wrong. But not all of them are for me. Nice nail polish ones are great but I don't do my nails. Or maybe I didn't like the brand, or it was the price.
I would like a Liberty advent or Diptyque but definitely no money to spend of these luxuries.
So after seeing some reviews online I figured that Marks and Spencer's was the one for me.
Price wasn't too bad, £35 but you will have to spend £35 so you can't get it on that offer. But hey I needed pants and also got a cute jumper. Cleaver them making you spend.
The product variety was great, skin care, anti-aging products, hair care, nails, make up. You name it was in the calendar. Brands were fab too, I was looking to try Nuxe oil and find some Skyn somewhere well I don't need look anymore.
Only couple of things weren't really for me, but my friend will have these.
I truly think it was well worth the money and it made December rather nice. Would I recommended? I would say yes, especially if you are partial to beauty subscription boxes!
P.S. I am going to make an advent for my son from this awesome box. Just need to paint the boxes and fill them obviously. Recycling and upcycling joy!

This like an annual post about the pretty pretty outfits of the golden globes. It is a shame that I couldn't watch the ceremony its self but I had great fun on google search for pretty frocks.
Yeah just the lady, since I actually relate to these. I know hot the good suit can look on the man and how it should look.... But I cannot relate...
So here we go.
Ethiral Emma Stone! Looks that this sweet gown... so light so lovely. I just keep imagining how it should feel to the touch.
Oh Maisy Williams... She looks like some one let her go to the ball. Very nice bright yellow frok and tail and shiny hair. Damn, if we didn't know it is awards season we do now.
Maybe a little too serious, I much prefer her in shorter dresses but here I think it works.
I just loved this dress on Goldie Hawn. Timeless with a twist of this leather look. And look how good she looks? Damn I wish I could look this good when I am her age.
Ruth Negga in this armor like dress... Oh I was lost for words when I saw this. Just amazing.
I see why British Vogue loves her red carpet looks.
Sofia Vergara in a shiny gold dress. Yeah I so did not bother to look up the designers.
a while back I read an interview with her how she says that the reason that she mainly wears princess cut dresses is because they suit her figure... well this isn't something she usually wear and isn't it such a wonderful surprise? But the again I am pretty sure she is that beautiful and will look good in a bin bag.
Cross dresser ladies... these women look so good!
Octavia Spencer, Evan Rachel Wood and Kathryn Hahn. I like how proper 1st two ladies look, just sleek but how sexy and fun is Kathryn Hahn outfit is?!
These was of course shock and horror that women have hair... damn did you know we actually hail everyone armpit hair?!
I applaude you Lola Kirke
So her instargam is amazing. I loved jetsam king around she is such a beautiful lady. And who actually care about the body hair. I admire her not carrying about stupid conventional beauty strandards of the western society. Some wrote that she is showing off her unshaved armpits, hmm I don't see any pictures of this lady with her arms behind her head exposing her underarms. Women have hair get over it!
And have you seen the pin she has one? It says F&@k Paul Ryan. If you didn't know it it the muppet who is looking to defund planned parenthood...

Oh the new year new me... well I have failed at few things I set off to do in the beginning of 2016.
So to revisit, I didn't get a job, I didn't get fitter... but I have started a course to retrain and move away from hospitality industry. This is a very big step into the right direction. Now just stay motivated and get in with it.
And Edgar went to nursery. Even if it is twice a week for half a day, he still goes and has grown and became a more socialble boy. He doesn't get as upset with me if say I hold a baby or isn't as shy when we meet other kids.
(Here is little man playing with vintage fisher price garage that his dad and uncle used to play)
As for serenity and improved quality of our life... well we are still working on it. But we do more. We will go out and do stuff together. I rediscovered my love for things handmade. So I guess I am moving into a right direction on this point. Yay! So all and all 2016 wasn't too much of the failure in new me bs aspect.
I had to think hard about what I want to achieve this year... I don't want to be too ambitions, just stiletto for smaller aims and such so my laziness won't get too much in a way.
So here it goes:
Run a half marathon
Take more family pictures, with three of us together
Make more things, crafting, cooking and such
Finally sort out the spare bedroom
Be a awesomest parent I can possibly be (hopefully he will finally talk and get on the potty this year)
Surly these things are easy achievable, right?!
Well wish me luck and let's stay motivated together! We can do it!
And don't forget to follow me on instargam and twitter @verysmallfeet x

I was super lucky to have some cinema time just before the new year. I went to see Fantastic beasts and Moana. Moana will have her very own post later but for now let me tell you about the Fantastic beasts.
I know I was very late to see it, and managed to actually stay away from any plot spoilers too.
There were some nice twists in it.
I am glad this film came out now and not earlier. The special effects were truly special and the creatures were more than magical.
I truly admire the JK Rowling mind, to imagine all these creatures how they look and act. Put the entire universe together. Magic!
I am actually making my mother to read the Harry Potter books.
Oh that's another thing about the Beasts, it is totally independent film and I guess the book from HP story's. personally I actually preferred this timeline, shiny roaring twenties in NYC. Beautiful costumes, oh I loved Queenie way to talk... "Oh honey..." she says...
and it didn't feel outdated, like some to the HP costumes, or at least how I felt about them in the books.
It's a great reboot and rework of the series I very much look forward the next instalment of this saga.
Would I recommend it? Well yes, honey, even if you have no idea about the Boy Who Lived and the rest of Hogwarts stuff.
