Golden Bows, Golden Leaves

'Catching Fire' the new Hunger Games movie has been on mine and Jon's agenda for ages. Both being massive fans of the books and the previous movie we couldn't wait for the next installment. We had a very much needed day off and decided to make a day of it cinema, lunch then shopping. 'Catching Fire'- was seriously amazing!!! I probably enjoyed it more than Gravity this year if I'm honest- which was dubbed this years 'movie of the year'. In my opinion it's one of the best book to movie adaptations in a very long time. There so many books out there that make it to the screen and so much gets lost in translation. I'm looking at you 'The Lovely Bones'- Where the movie is nothing like the beautiful book. Which made me so mad! Why did they bother? Well anyways before I get into a full on rant on why that movie made me so angry, The Hunger Games was awesome and Jennifer Lawrence is just a goddess. I love her.
What do you think of The Cinnamon Slippers new layout? Thoughts? I fancied a change and thought this was rather slick and simple. There are plans in the near future for a complete change but for now this seems rather lovely. 

I picked up these swanky suede shoes in the The House of Fraser sale and they were the last pair and in my size! it must of been fate! They are just beautiful and smell gorgeous too!
 Dress- Cath Kidston
Coat- Dorothy Perkins

  1. Loving your new blog look hun!! and the shoes are so pretty just like you :) <3


    1. Oh yay! I'm glad you like....was worried people might not like it! xxx thanks hun

  2. My boyfriend and I actually had 0 complaints about Catching Fire, it was incredible. My biggest concern was who they were going to cast for Finnick, but the actor they picked was really, impeccable.

  3. Vcute outfit - love the bag!! :)

  9. Hello beautiful lady! I never get over how much red suits you, you look utterly gorgeous!

  10. Beautiful shoes! I haven't been to see Catching Fire yet but it's on my list of things to do. x

  11. Yes to those shoes!! And I love the dress (what is the pattern?) and coat! And omg funny -- I just bought a new layout for my blog too from the same person (I couldn't resist the markdown), but I'm still not sure if I want to implement it. Might make a test blog and see if I really like it. OH and I would totally agree about The Lovely Bones, since I LOVE the book, but I couldn't even bring myself to see the movie! I adore Stanley Tucci but other than that, I just felt like some things just need to exist only in my head. They are sometimes better that way, I think.
