Experiencing 4DX with Cineworld*

TQR got a little treat this week and were invited along to Cineworld at Fountain Park to view a special screening of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in 4DX. None of us have ever experienced the cinema in 4DX before so we didn't really know what it would entail but when we heard that it would involve moving seats, sprays of water, lightning, blasts of air and even smells, we were all really excited for it.

I think the most surprising part for me was how much the seats really moved, it felt like a rollercoaster at times. At one point (during a very rocky helicopter ride) Lyndsey thought she was going to be thrown right out of her seat which of course Zoë and I thought was hilarious, especially when she started asking for a seatbelt. There were plenty of times during the film that we were just crying with laughter, at the actual film yes, but also at the fact that we were getting sprayed with water or when we could feel something brushing our legs. The only sensory part that didn't quite live up to expectations was the scents, we couldn't really notice them but I would probably rather that than have really strong overpowering smells sprayed at me.

The film itself was of course hilarious. I wouldn't expect anything else from Jack Black and Kevin Hart but with The Rock and Karen Gillan, the four together were just brilliant. The idea that they were all teenagers stuck in the bodies of other people worked so well, Jack Black's performance as a sassy teenage girl had the whole audience in stitches. It was also a nice surprise to see Nick Jonas in there, looking q fit. Although it is a remake, the film has a completely different concept to the original. Rather than a bunch of animals appearing in their world, the characters were transported into the jungle within the game. I think that this modern take on Jumanji worked really well and the 4DX was just a bonus.

If you want to see Jumanji in 4DX for yourself (which you definitely should) then you can click here to view the trailer and book your ticket!

We really would recommend trying it out, we enjoyed it so much that Zoë went back the next night for the double bill of Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed by the midnight 4DX Premier screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We had no idea that Zoë was a Star Wars Super-fan but she couldn't contain her excitement for the new movie and she's still raving about how good it was in 4DX. You can view the new Star Wars trailer and book your tickets for that here.

Three Fantastic Ways to Treat Loved Ones to this Christmas*

I have loved a trip to the cinema for as long as I can remember and there is nothing more exciting than going to see the latest blockbuster as soon as it comes out. We were recently lucky enough to attend the Cineworld's previews of 4DX at Fountain Park, Edinburgh. We absolutely loved the experience that stimulated all five senses, bringing out a lot of hilarity in the three of us. Such an extra special cinema experiences and I can't wait to buy tickets to a 4DX film for my nieces and nephews because I know they will absolutely love it! 

Of course at this time of year Mums and Dads also need a well-earned break. So why not as a special Christmas treat to offer to babysit and treat them to a lovely Cineworld date night package. The Christmas Gift Box for Two contains two adult tickets for any film on, chocolate, popcorn and drinks - what more could they need?

One of the best Christmas gifts I received a few years ago when I moved to Glasgow as a student was an unlimited cinema pass for Cineworld. It was amazing and I used it almost every week and it included money off food and drinks and access to exclusive premiers of new films. I think this would be such an amazing gift for any film buff in the family or someone heading off to uni next year. 

All of these fab cinema experience gifts can be purchased at Cineworld Website.

I also recently had the pleasure of visiting the gorgeous Chamomile Spa at the West End in Edinburgh. I was treated to an amazing Aromatherapy Associates Facial which after weeks of university stress was the perfect pick me up, and I had shellac nails done which lasted perfectly for over 4 weeks. Both members of staff were super friendly and knowledgeable and I couldn’t recommend the treatments more.

With this in mind, I can’t help but think that a voucher for the beautiful and relaxing day spa would be the perfect post-Christmas indulgence for any hard-working loved one. Chamomile Spa do some fantastic packages such as; 

This gift is exclusive to our Glasgow readers but we love this brand so much we couldn't leave them out. The amazing and gorgeous Mud Urban Flowers have a fantastic subscription service at a range of prices. This is a lovely gift for the friend who loves all things interior or maybe a new homeowner. You can choose between little £19, luxe £39 or lush £59 and send a bespoke, beautiful and seasonal bouquet out to a loved one. The flowers will be sent out six times on dates of your choice - I know I would be thrilled to receive this beautiful subscription!

How to make Christmas a little extra special this year

Christmas day has always been up there with one of my favourite days of the year. It is the one day when all my loved ones are in one place and dedicated to spending the whole day together. We are pretty traditional and after opening presents and having dinner with my immediate family, we come together with the rest of the tribe and eat Christmas dinner and be very, very merry.

My siblings and I are never allowed to be in charge of the food or wine but what we do take the reigns on is the entertainment. So I wanted to share with you a few of the little extras I will be taking a long to Christmas dinner with the family this year. If you are looking for a few last minute presents that won't break the bank, I have you covered!

Pickering's Gin Baubles - a gift for the adults at the dinner table. I have had these little beauties on my tree since December the 1st and I can't wait to enjoy a G&T with them on Christmas day. I love these gorgeous little baubles and have invested in a few packs to give out as gifts this year. Ditch the crackers and reach for the baubles for a very merry Christmas.

Hotel Chocolat Christmas - is there a more indulgent treat? I absolutely love the tree decorations and the mini crackers. Not only do they make amazing table decorations but the chocolates inside are delicious. I can't wait to enjoy with a Baileys after dinner!

Not On The High Street - my favourite website for finding unique presents for every occasion. This festive season I have stumbled across some fantastic Christmas day goodies - that are also personalised. I love the beautifully Handwritten Christmas Crackers that are equal measures of vintage looking and quaint. These beauties can double as crackers and place settings. I also can't refuse the gorgeously glittery Personalised Swizzle Sticks - the perfect way to toast the festive season and also keep glasses from getting mixed up.

Caudalie Beauty - some of my favourite French pharmacy products and a lovely little favour for the table. I particularly love French Kiss set, also a perfect pick for Secret Santa or a last minute stocking stuffer purchase.
