The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) I loved this stupid film. I’m in love with Mila Kunis, sue me. Pair her with Kate McKinnon and as far as I’m concerned you’re onto a winner. It’s a very silly romp sure but a very good, girl power one. When Audrey gets dumped over text by her elusive boyfriend Drew (Justin Theroux), her BFF Morgan is on hand to … Read More The Spy Who Dumped Me

Guest Post: It’s Okay to be Broken or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Flaws

First in my new She’s All That series is one of my dreamiest real-life friends. In fact, it would be true to say that Ms Lightle was my first real friend in Canada and one does not quickly forget that.
