Super Grannies Title Frame

Lytham Film Company Fighting Discrimination One Laugh At A Time

Lytham film company are currently filming their new feature Super Grannies!

The film’s cast includes residents at the Fairhaven Care Home in Lytham St Annes. They have been spotted all round Lytham shooting their outrageous comedy. If you come upon ninjas in St Annes, worry not, you have probably just walked onto the Super Grannies. set!

Yes, the film promises to be a laugh a minute, and the team behind the film have certainly worked incredibly hard so that you go home crying with laughter.

The film is being directed by Neal Gavyn an actor from St Annes. Gavyn actually provides creative pursuits for the residents of Fairhaven, and apparently it was when two residents asked to do a film that instigated Super Grannies. Gavyn and his Lytham Film Company partner Sophie Heppell, have been the driving force and writing partners behind the whole project.

Lytham Film Company said, ” We not only wanted to make something positive for the residents, but we wanted to show a wider audience that age, illness & disabilities don’t inhibit a person from their inner ‘super-ness’. It’s first and foremost a comedy film, for people to enjoy and laugh at, but we sincerely hope that it will also go someway to highlighting the incredible capacity and ability that people with dementia can have.”

Me, And My Ultimate Face Wipe Hunt…

I have been on the hunt for some time, for decent, environmentally friendly, good value, face wipes.

The reason being, I am in and out of hospital at the moment, and it’s just not practical to take a massive cleanser that first of all, takes up a lot of room in my bag, and secondly requires water, which I may not have to hand, to wash it off. So, I decided wipes were going to be the way forward, to maintain my skincare regime even when admitted in hospital.

Nina Dobrev Is My First 2014 Style Crush!

Nina Dobrev absolutely rocked her black crystal dress for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday the 8th January in L.A.

She was wearing a gorgeous Jenny Packham gown from her 2013 fall collection. It had long sleeves and a high neck, which is a rather bold choice for the red carpet!  However, she still oozed sex appeal as the stretchy fabric enhanced her slender and enviable frame. It just proves that less skin on show can be more! Many other celebrities may want to take a leaf out of her book!

Look Pretty In Pink Whilst Helping Beat Breast Cancer!

We ladies are known to be great at shopping, amazing at looking good in all situations, but also most importantly, we are known for being there for each other in times of need. Would you believe that buying Breast Cancer products enables us to do all three at once! Yes, we have always been ace at multi-tasking, so here’s our chance to shine inwardly and outwardly!

The products below have become available this month because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Lots of amazing companies are highlighting this crucial cause, and are backing the campaign. They are doing this by adding new product/s to their usual line, then donating all (or a percentage) of the proceeds of that product to these incredibly important charities, all to do with Breast Cancer. Usually they are easy to spot as the items are packaged with the infamous Breast Cancer ribbon logo, or stand out from the crowd in a delightful shade of pink.

Did I ever mention pink is my favourite colour? I feel like Christmas has come early this year!
