Day 6 – A Favourite Comedy Movie

Hot Fuzz

While this film never had me laughing hysterically, it had me consistently grinning from start to finish. Which to me, is a mark of a great comedy. I am a fan of the Cornetto trilogy. Bonus points to those who know what that is. This one is by far my favourite though! Hot Fuzz is an amazing parody and satire of over the top action movies.

The premise is simple enough. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) was too good a cop in London, that he gets sent to the sleepy village of Sandford. The change is hard for Nicholas to adapt to, and he gets frustrated with how laid back the rest of his new team is, along with his well-meaning, naive partner Danny (Nick Frost). However, as more ‘accidents’ start to rock the sleepy town, Angel begins to suspect that not everyone is as they seem in Sandford.

Seriously though, this movie is hilarious. It all escalates to an insane all out gun fight at the end, that is hysterical. I definitely recommend giving it a watch, even if you’re not into action, as this is the perfect parody of all those movies.

Have you guys seen Hot Fuzz?

Looking Back on Our Wedding

Looking Back on Our Wedding

Today is a special TBT. One, it’s my four month anniversary for my blog!! Two, I wanted to share with you all lots of extra wedding photos. We recently got back almost 400 of wedding photos from our photographer Kent Yu over the weekend. Going through them all was amazing! So many moments captured from the best day ever.

I’ve compiled 25 (that was as small as I could make it!) to share with you all on the blog. They’re all ones I haven’t shared before, so I hope you enjoy this extra sneek peek into our wedding!

Strap in and have a look!

The theme for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is Bridge.

Seems straightforward enough, so for my interpretation, let’s look at some photos of bridges that I seem to have collected 😀

Bridges have a habit of showing up in my travel photos, as well as random photos I take day to day.

Some bridges are necessary to explore natural habitats that shouldn’t be disturbed. Like the pancake rocks in the small village of Punakaiki, in the South Island.


Some bridges you find in parks. They’re small, and when I see one I have to cross it, and also get a photo of it. The one below is me and my brother in Pollard park, taking a photo of my mum down below taking a photo of us.

Here’s the photo of my mum taking a photo of us on top of the bridge. Inception.

Some bridges are meant to be for trains only. But you gotta make your way across it to continue hiking your way to Machu Picchu. Now it’s an adventure.


Some bridges you find closer to home. In Zealandia, they have a long suspension bridge that you shouldn’t run across, but you want to.


They also have a bridge built on top of the skinny dam that blocks the lake from running over the rest of Zealandia.


Some bridges you don’t really think about. Like when you drive under one or over one on the motorway or highway.

Other bridges are landmarks, so you can’t help but notice them. When you visit, you feel obligated to take a photo of it, as it’s recognizable in both day and night. I don’t even need to say which bridge this is.

Some bridges are tiny ones in park that cross a stream, but you can bet that I will get a photo of it.

You can also bet that if I’m travelling with my husband, if I’m going to take a photo of a bridge, a lot of the times he will be in it. Whether he ran onto it to pose, or he just happened to be there. He’s in them a lot 🙂

Bridges are pretty awesome, and if you see one, take a photo of it. Cause why not?
