May Favourites 2017

I’m kind of confused about May because although I feel like it went by really fast, I also feel like it’s been such a long time since the beginning of the month ! Although failing my driving test was kind of a bummer since I have to wait about 3 months to retake it, May has been good to be, between the end of my exams, the good weather and just enjoying my life more than I have in a while (blame it on uni). I have quite a few favourites for you this month, so get ready !

BEAUTY

Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie

I used to have a love/hate relationship with this liquid lipstick bc although I loved the colour, it used to dry my lips quite quickly and didn’t last very long. Now that I’ve found out that putting a lot of chapstick to hydrate my lips and putting a nude lipliner all over my lips before I applied the liquid lipstick fixed these issues, I’ve basically been wearing it every day !

So Susan – Light Diffuser (illuminator & bronzer duo)

Contour was never part of my makeup routine but as I was experimenting, I decided that trying wouldn’t hurt. I used this duo, which is basically the only contouring makeup item I own and I actually really liked the result ! It contains both a highlighter and a contour shade, which was good because both go well together. Plus, they are chocolate scented, so what’s not to like? 😉

Nicka K New York – Airbrush Blending Sponge

Although I already owned blending sponges, mine were flat, so I thought I’d try this one and boy was I not disappointed. My foundation was so well  blended with this one that you couldn’t tell I was wearing any ! Given how worried I am that my foundation might be too visible, this sponge totally works for me !

TV SHOWS

TV Shows

The Handmaid’s Tale

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know about my current obsession for The Handmaid’s Tale. I first heard about the show because Alexis Bledel was part of the cast, and then realised that the book was on my shelf of books to read. Although I finished the book, the show is still airing every wednesday and so many things were added to it that I’m still anxious every episode. The most interesting thing about this book/show is that, although it is dystopian, everything that happens in it has happened in history or is till happening today, which is the scariest thing to me. I don’t see anyone talking about this show but honestly, please watch it.

Unreal

I used to hear so much about this show but only decided recently to start watching it. It was absolutely brilliant. The sick thing about this is that although you know how wrong the manipulation is just wrong, you’ll love it. I feel as awful as the producers are in the show. The funny thing is, I watched The Bachelorette this week (don’t judge me) and I kept imagining the production of the show and Quinn yelling after everyone. You’ll never watch reality TV the same way, trust me !

Sense8 Season 2

We’ve waited so long for this second season, you’d think I would’ve taken my time to watch it. Well no. I’ve watched the season in a matter of two days. This show is just so addictive ! Honestly one of my all-time favourites. There’s just not one thing I dislike about it. Now I can’t wait for the next season !

MUSIC

Music

Noah Cyrus – Stay Together

I absolutely love Noah Cyrus’ music. The only other song I’ve really listened to is Make Me Cry but if every song of hers is as addictive as these two, then count me in ! You can totally hear a certain ressemblance with her big sister’s voice but their music is totally different ! I just can’t wait to hear more from her !

Shawn Hook ft Vanessa Hudgens – Reminding Me

It’s been years since Vanessa last released music so when this song came out, I got very excited. The song totally fits her voice, very relaxing. Hopefully, she’ll make a real comeback in the music industry soon enough because I love hearing her sweet voice ! 😉

Miley Cyrus – Malibu

Speaking of comebacks & the Cyrus family, queen Miley has made her comeback ! She’s been one of my favourite artists for over 10 years now (wow, that’s crazy) and I was so glad to hear that she was releasing new music ! The country vibes totally fit her voice and the song is just perfect for the Summer ! I can totally see myself listening to it on the beach.

Selena Gomez – Bad Liar

When two of your favourite artists release music, you know it’s a good month. I ave to admit that I didn’t really like the song the first time I listened to it but now, I’m totally addicted to it ! It’s just so different than what we usually hear on the radio, I love it.

PEOPLE

Acacia & Jairus

I’ve talked about how much I loved Acacia’s videos when she was pregnant, but let me tell you that now that her little Brinley is born, she is giving me major baby fever ! Acacia & Jairus are currently daily vlogging, which I have really been enjoying ! Congrats on the little princess !

Kate Hudson

My sister and I are  having a Glee marathon, and we’re currently onto the fourth season, which is the one Kate Hudson is in. It totally reminded me of the crush I’ve always had on her and since I’m currently watching A LOT of « chick flicks », a few of her movies magically appeared on my list (I mean How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is one of my favourites). I suspect my sister to have a crush on her too tbh haha

Freddie Prinze Jr

Obviously, watching a lot of chick flicks meant watching movies of the 90s (the best if you ask me) and Freddie Prinze Jr was in a few of them. I never watched any of his movies but have been obsessed ever since I watched She’s All That. Also, I found out that he is married to Sarah Michelle Gellar and my mind is blown haha

April Favourites 2017

I can’t believe it’s already the end of April. This month went by so fast ! I thought I’d share with you some of the things I’ve loved the most throughout the most. Unfortunately, I haven’t been wearing makeup much (I don’t usually wear makeup when I have exams and let’s just say I’ve had exams all months haha) so there won’t be a beauty part in the blogpost but don’t worry, I have a few other things to talk about 😉

MUSICMusic

Cheat Codes ft Demi Lovato – No Promises

This song has been stuck in my head for weeks now. Such a fun song to listen to when you’re in a good mood and just want to dance around your room ! I feel like it’s gonna be one of the songs I’m going to listen to the most this summer !

Selena Gomez – Only You

The whole 13RW soundtrack is absolutely amazing but this one is probably y favourite – it just suits the show so much ! Selena’s voice is so relaxing I swear I could fall asleep just by listening to it.

The Moana Soundtrack

Alright, I’ll talk about the movie later in the post but I felt like the soundtrack deserved its recognition. I am absolutely obsessed with it ! All the songs have been stuck in my head and I’m not complaining ! But then again, I love all Disney soundtrack so it doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone haha

TV SHOWS

Tv shows favourites

Thirteen Reasons Why

Everyone has heard about Thirteen Reasons Why but I couldn’t not mention it. I read the book years ago and it’s been one of my favourites ever since. I had been waiting for the adaptation for so long but was nervous when it came out because I didn’t want to be disappointed. It’s been weeks since I finished it and I’m still broken by it. I can’t even begin to tell you how important this show is to me ! Definitely became one of my favourites.

Revenge

I first began to watch Revenge years ago but it took me a while to finish it just because I suck at keeping up at shows and take 6 months breaks at the middle of a season haha. I loved how original this show was compared to most shows. I’ve always been interested in books/movies/shows around the subject of revenge so it was perfect to me haha.

Broadchurch

The last season of Broadchurch finished airing and I still can’t believe it’s over for good. To be honest, I like crime shows but tend to get quite bored with them. I didn’t get bored with this one, that’s for sure. I  love how different the three crimes were (one per season) so it didn’t feel repetitive. Also I liked the way they showed the impact of the crimes on the town, that even years later you could still feel the loss. The way the show is shot is also so amazing I can’t get over it !

MOVIES

Movies favourites

Rogue One

My brother bought the Rogue One DVD a few weeks ago and since I hadn’t seen it (my brother and my dad went to see it on Christmas Day, whilst I was working) I was really excited to finally get to. I knew nothing about the movie except for when it took place, so it was a total surprise to me. I don’t want to spoil it to anyone but boy I wasn’t expecting to cry this much near the end haha

Moana

I watched Moana last night. I’ve been wanting to for months now but every time I was looking for a movie to watch, I just forgot about this one. I watched it with my entire family and we all loved it. It was absolutely beautiful in every way, and very different from other Disney movies. I just wish we could’ve seen more of the pig.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I know, I’m late to this one as well, what a shame. My cousins came for Easter and since we’re all such fans of the Harry Potter universe, we decided to watch it together. I loved absolutely everything about it. I just thought it was funny how Newt was a Hufflepuff raising magical creatures because every one knows that’s what I would’ve done too. I guess it’s a Hufflepuff thing 😉 I can’t wait for the next movie !

BOOKS

Books favourites

E. Lockhart – We Were Liars

This book was one my list of books to read for quite a while now, so when I went to WHSmith and saw it, I immediatly grabbed it. I didn’t know anything about the book. I actually have so much to say about it, I’m thinking about dedicating a whole post just about it so the only thing I’ll tell you about it is  : WHAT A PLOT TWIST !

HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH

My favourite part of the month was definitely going to England to see my family and celebrate my little cousin’s birthday. I miss them so much and England has always felt like home to me ♥

Favourite TV Shows !

As you all know, I am pretty obsessed with tv shows. I basically spend 80% of my free time watching them (the other 20% are spent sleeping tbh) and I just don’t seem to get enough ! The annoying thing about me is that I go through phases and could spend months watching the same thing and then stop and start something new which means I’m basically late on every one of my shows. Doesn’t seem to stop me from starting new ones though haha. Anyways, my friend Daniela Pires uploaded a video on her youtube channel listing some of her favourites and I thought it’d be an amazing idea to do the same here, in case you’re looking for something new to watch or just someone to fangirl with (I’m your girl). Obviously, I have a lot more than just what I’ve listed but these were the ones that came into my mind 🙂

Gilmore Girls

It's Friday night, we should be out partying with the homies

image from fckyeahgilmoregirls.tumblr.com

I mean obviously I have to start with my ultimate favourite show, right? This won’t come as a surprise to anyone but I am completely obsessed with Gilmore Girls. I even dedicated a whole post to the show a while back. This is probably the most relatable show I’ve ever watched just because I basically am Rory. This is the perfect show to just relax on the couch, either when you’re sick, need a to laugh.. It’s just a feel-good show. Just trust me and watch it okay?

One Tree Hill

Everyone should have that. A place that makes them happy.

image from theodysseyonline.com

I mean One Tree Hill is a classic, if you haven’t watched it (first of all how) than you just need to. My brother and I used to watch this show all the time when it came on TV. Also a really relatable show but definitely less funny than Gilmore Girls, since it’s a drama. I can’t wait to marathon it with my sister once we’re done with Glee, just because of how important this show is to me. My love for Brooke Davis has been the same since day one and Naley will always be my relationship goal. Good reminder that friendship and family are both really important and that you need to follow your dreams, no matter what people tell you !

This Is Us

The Big Three

image from nbcthisisus.tumblr.com

I think This Is Us is my favourite show of 2016. I mentionned how excited I was for it in my TV Shows I’m Excited For This Autumn blogpost and boy I was not disappointed. I think this show may have drained all my tears. It’s just such a powerful and beautiful show. You will love every single member of the Pearson family and get way too involved with their well-being. I already loved Mandy Moore and Milo VentimigIia but I’m just obsessed with them at this point. I can’t wait for Season 2 !

Thirteen Reasons Why

Hannah Baker Crying with Clay Jensen

I read the book Thirteen Reasons Why years ago and it has been one of my favourites ever since. After all these years waiting for an adaptation, I was quite nervous to see the result but to be honest, the show is even better in the way that it gets deeper into the story. Having delt with some of the main subjects of the show, it was important to me for it to be rightfully represented. The awareness spread by this show is so important, I even watched the show  with my sister for her to realise how actions/words can impact someone’s life. I feel like everyone could benefit from the show.

Broadchurch

Stay out of my way

image from thedailyedge.ie

I started watching Broadchurch a few weeks ago and basically finished the two first seasons in a few days and had to wait for new episodes of the third seasons to come out. The show just ended this week, which I’m really bummed about. I love everything about the show – the scenery, the actors, David Tennant’s accent, the mystery… I actually found out who was guilty for each crime but never knew their reasons, which is why I was still looking forward the reveal at the end of each season. Plus, everyone was still shady so I wasn’t sure I was right every time. I also really appreciate the way some serious topics are dealt with in the show, but I won’t spoil it for you 😉

The 100

We survive together

image from screenertv.com

 

Obviously, I love the 100, I wouldn’t have gone to a convention if I didn’t. Although I first started it because I love shows about people surviving in an unknown territory, I just really enjoyed seeing the show grow and get more serious with time. For some reason, I really enjoy watching people fight until they die, it’s therapeutic to me (I sound like a total psycopath but I mean it as in the violence in the shows keep me from being violent myself, I could never do what they do) We’ve watched the characters grow, lose so much and it just seems like they’re never gonna find peace, which is quite scary. But it also shows the will to survive, fight for your people and shows how difficult it is to draw the line between what is necessary and what is unforgivable. I just find it sad that some people just care about their ships when the show is about so much more than that.

February Favourites 2017

I know I have never done a favourites blogpost before but those are some of my favourite to read or watch on youtube so I thought I’d try and update you on what I’ve been loving lately. I might not post one every month given that I’m quite basic and tend to like the same things for a long time. Maybe this will help motivating me to try new things once in a while 😉

Beauty

Beauty Favourites February 2017

As you know from my last blogpost, I have received quite a few beauty items and had to try them out. These ones are basically the ones I’ve been using on a daily basis.

Studio 10 – Brow Lift Perfecting Liner

I have never owned a brow pencil before and I have to say I was quite scared it might not look as natural as I’d want to but I was pleasantly surprised. The colour is the perfect one for me – not too dark, not too light, but absolutely perfect. I always struggled with my eyebrows because of how weird their shape is but that’s all in the past now !

Trifle Cosmetics – Lips Parfait Exotic Fruits

This kind of lipstick is new to me – I’ve always gone for the classic red lipstick. I love the fact that this one feels moisturising, almost as much as a lip balm, and doesn’t dry my lips. I don’t put too much on given that I tend to go for a natural makeup look and so don’t want to go crazy on the colour.

Absolute New York – Velvet Lippie

I have to admit that I put even less of this lipstick on than the last one, but that’s because the colour of this liquid lipstick is quite vibrant. I usually put a bit on my lips and then smudge it all over with my finger, which gives the perfect spring colour ! I also love how matte it makes my lips look !

Yves Rocher – Waterproof Eye Pencil

I’ve always used a traditional eye pencil, which I always found annoying because I always had to sharpen it in order to have a fine line and my eye shape being what it is, it used to smudge all over my right eyelid, making me look like I had black eyeshadow on one eye and none of the other. How great haha. This new eye pencil is actually perfect for me, the pencil is as sharp as I need it to be and the waterproof really does work. I finally get to look somewhat presentable all day !

Windle & Moddie – Invisible Day & Night Cream

For some reason, my hair has been feeling really dry lately and so getting the hair cream was the best thing for me. Not only does it leave my hair feeling softer, it can also be used to get it to settle down (my hair tend to get a bit crazy in the morning) the smell also reminds me of summer. I usually put it on at night and then my hair is all pretty the next morning, which is a great way to start the day, let’s be honest !

Music

Music Favourites February 2017

Christina Aguilera – Back to Basics

This album is one of my all-time favourites. I just feel like it’s so different than what we’re used to hear nowadays ! Christina has one of the best voices out there and I loved growing up listening to her music. I just keep coming back on this album because of how great it makes me feel. I can’t help but scream the words, sorry !

La La Land Original Soundtrack

Who hasn’t heard of La La Land these past few months? I finally watched the movie a few weeks ago and absolutely loved everything about it. The perfect album to listen to whenever I study or just to listen to on the way to uni !

Grease Original Soundtrack

Grease in one of my favourite musicals and my sister and I have just been loving listening to the music whilst we get ready for bed. I also love listening to it whenever I need some motivation, which basically means on my way to uni as well. My friend is so done with it now haha

Kygo feat Selena Gomez – It Ain’t Me

Oh how I love Selena’s songs. I’ve been obsessed with this one ever since it came out. My sister’s friend was actually scared of me because she heard me screaming the words in my room. Can’t help it, it’s just my new anthem okay?

TV Shows

TV Favourites February 2017

Riverdale

I have been waiting for Riverdale for SO LONG ! My brother even joined me on my Riverdale obsession last week and let’s be honest, it’s even better when you have someone to share it with. I just love everything about it and waiting every week to get a new episode is pure torture. I even began to read the Archie Comics and really loving them ! (#Bughead 😉 )

Big Little Lies

To be honest, the show just started so I’m still kind of confused by some things but then again that’s what makes it fun, right? The cast is absolutely amazing and perfect for me since I’ve kind of been obsessed with Reese Witherspoon lately. I love the way it’s shot and the outfits and the music and ugh, it’s just really good okay?

Youtube

Youtube Favourites February 2017

The Sacconejolys

I have been watching the Sacconejolys for years now – I mean their little boy Eduardo was about 4 months old and look at him now ! It’s just crazy to see the children grow up so fast and to get attached to a family that’s not your own and you don’t even really know. With their new baby girl coming this month, I have been watching every single one of their vlogs. They’re just such a cute family !

Acacia Brinley Clark

I feel like everyone knows Acacia, even by name (or just her pictures since I feel like every catfish from years ago used to use her pictures). Once again, I am obsessed with mums to be – even though that’s far from my situation haha – and so happy for her to welcome her baby girl Brinley Rey Kersey! I’m also obsessed with her style in general and her beauty videos are amazing to me.

Hermione Chantal

Although I don’t do much of DIY, those are some of my favourites videos to watch. I found her channel a few months ago and have been obsessed ever since. We definitely have the same taste in decor and I’m looking forward to the day when I find the motivation to actually recreate some of her DIYs !

Favourite Lydia Martin outfits

I have been obsessed with Teen Wolf ever since it came out, and knowing that this season is gonna be the last one feels so weird ! I feel like my teenage years are ending, after all PLL and the Vampire Diaries are also ending and those three shows were the most significant ones for my teenage years.

One of the main things I have been loving these past few years is looking at the characters outfits – I may not dress as well as I hope I would, but I know how to appreciate a good outfit. One of the characters’ wardrobe I’m most envious of is Lydia Martin’s. Out of all the shows I usually watch, she probably is my favourite to be honest. I feel like every time a new episode comes out, I’m looking forward to seeing a new outfit, which can seem ridiculous but it’s just how it is.

To celebrate the show coming back, I decided to gather some of my favourite looks of hers and share them with you. Because who doesn’t like to see people dressed well, especially when they’re as beautiful as Holland Roden? 😉

Lydia Martin outfits

TV shows I’m excited for this Autumn

As everybody knows, I’m a big fan of tv shows. It’s basically all I do when I have some time off. And if you’re like me, you probably know that this time of the year is one of the best. See, school isn’t the only thing coming back in autumn… Tv shows do as well. After all these months of waiting, it’s finally time for some new seasons of my favourite shows, or even new shows, to motivate me to get through the week 😉 Here’s a list of the things I’m most excited to watch until the end of the year ! (they are ranked by the time they premiere so you know when you can start watching them, don’t thank me)

THIS IS US – PREMIERE 21st SEPTEMBER

I actually found out about this show about 2 weeks before the premiere because I was binge watching everything starring Milo Ventimiglia. When I saw that it also starred Mandy Moore (from my favourite movie A Walk To Remember) and Justin Hartley (who I had a crush on in the Smallville days), I knew I had to watch it. For some reason, I thought this was actually gonna be a movie but I’m not one to complain when I get more content 😉

This show is just so sweet. If the pilot both makes me laugh and cry, you know I’m gonna keep watching it. One thing’s sure, I wasn’t expecting the ending (I won’t spoil don’t worry). Plus I like to watch things where everyone is somehow connected. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for us in this first season !

Empire

image from breathecast.com

EMPIRE SEASON 3 – PREMIERE 22nd SEPTEMBER

Empire is probably one of my favourite shows at the moment – I binged watched the second season right before the beginning of this one  so I could be right into it ! I just love everything about this show : the music, the characters (well not all of them but still)… I feel like most people watch it anyways so I don’t have to say much about it.. Please leave André alone though haha

Grey's Anatomy

image from when-will.net

GREY’S ANATOMY SEASON 13 – PREMIERE 23rd SEPTEMBER

I just can’t believe this show has aired for so long… And definitely not that I still love it after all these years. I just can’t seem to get enough of it ! I even started to binge watch it since the beginning again – although let’s be honest I probably won’t go all the way through haha

I have to admit that most of the new characters of this season (well they’re from last season but you know what I mean) are actually annoying me but as long as they keep Alex and Meredith, I’m okay with it. Oh and bring back Japril please thanks.

How To Get Away With Murder

image from enstarz.com

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER SEASON 3 – PREMIERE 23rd SEPTEMBER

I’m obsessed with HTGAWM. I love when tv shows show you what’s gonna happen in the finale and then go back to explain how it got to this. I love that you don’t know what’s happening and then it all makes sense when you get to the finale. Plus I’ve told you before that I love everything related to law.

The characters in this show are all so important to me, I just love every single one of them. The only thing I’d have to say about the 2 episodes we have of this season is that I’m disappointed in Connor and I’m not sure I want to know what’s gonna happen in the finale. PLEASE DON’T HURT MY FEELINGS !

QUANTICO SEASON 2 – PREMIERE 26th SEPTEMBER

Quantico has probably been my show of the Summer – I’ve just been so obsessed with the first season ! Although I was really excited about the second one, I must admit I was a bit anxious that it might be the first one all over again. Given that there has only been one episode, I can’t tell you if it’ll be the case or not. Let’s be honest, I’d still watch it though haha.

GILMORE GIRLS : A YEAR IN THE LIFE – PREMIERE 25h NOVEMBER

This is the thing I’m most excited for. Remember my post about Gilmore Girls, the show I’ve become obsessed with and still am to this day – how many marathons of a show can one person make? Well Netflix is bringing it back to life for four episodes. Yes, there were tears involved when I heard about it – I’m just emotional about this show okay. Just imagine what it’s gonna be like after the four episodes, once I realise that this is truly the end.

Miraculous Ladybug

miraculous ladybug

First of all, I’d like to apologize for not posting anything last week, but if you follow me on Twitter (my links are below), you should know that I have been very unwell and not able to look at a screen for over a minute, which has obviously been problematic for my school work and the blog. But I am feeling way better now and ready to talk to you about my newest obsession.

Yes, you might think that I’m actually not feeling that better if I am talking to you about a kid’s show but trust me, it actually is good. I have been hearing about this show everywhere on the internet and thought the world was going mental. What could be so special about this show? Well, I decided to give it a try two days ago and I just got hooked. I have watched every single episode and loved every second of it.

Plot summary (from tvshowtime) : In modern-day Paris, there’s a teen junior high school girl named Marinette Dupain-Cheng and her classmate, Adrien. When evil arises, Marinette transforms into Ladybug while Adrien transforms into Cat Noir. However, neither know each other’s secret identities. Together, they fight to protect Paris against the mysterious villain Hawk Moth.

The first thing I loved about this show is the animation. It’s been a long time since I have seen animation this precise and just beautiful. It will make you want to grab your pencil and try to draw the characters. The whole thing also takes place in Paris and, going to Paris myself every day for uni, I can say that I love the way they represented the city. You will have no problem recongnizing every place where the action takes place.

Another thing I loved was obviously the characters, as I always do. You will get attached so easily, not only to the Marinette and Adrien but even the less important ones. Except to Chloé, you will hate her with all your soul. But then again, it’s a kid show, you always have a bitch in it, just like in real life, am I right? 😉 Of course, you will also become involved in Marinette and Adrien’s complicated love story and just want them to figure out each other’s identities so they can be together. But at the same time, you won’t want that because you’ll know that everything will be different after that. And isn’t it one of the reasons why this show can be funny? Other than Chat Noir’s puns of course !

TwitterPersonal TumblrFan Tumblr – Instagram – Pinterest

(I’d just like to add that I’m going to England tomorrow (well, today as you’re reading that) and will probably snapchat the whole thing or put it on my instagram. So if you want to add me on snapchat to check my stories, my username is « peanutsqueen ». Otherwise, you can check the blog next week for a recap of my trip ! 🙂 )

Suits

suits

I’ve always loved law. Everyone seems to choose this kind of studies, mostly when they don’t know what they’re going to do afterwards, but I chose not to. To be honest, I worried that I might not enjoy it that much once my life revolves around it, and even though it could have been really interesting to me, I wouldn’t know what to do with a law diploma. This is definitely not what I plan to do for the rest of my life. But it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have anything to do with it, and so I chose to add my love for law to my love for tv series, and it worked out well for me.

I’ve always watched tv series related to law, mostly because that’s what my mum used to watch every weekend and I thought it was interesting, even though I didn’t fully understand everything obviously. One thing I disliked about them though, is that it was maybe too focused on law. You didn’t have a character development or a real storyline, and everyone knows these are two things I look for the most in a tv serie, otherwise I might get bored.

For all of these reasons, Suits is the perfect tv show for me. Even though you are into an atmosphere revolving about law, you also follow the characters lives and there is drama involved. Being a drama queen myself, I can’t resist a good drama show.

Plot (from imdb): While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City’s best legal closers, Harvey Specter. Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory. Mike and Harvey are a winning team. Even though Mike is a genius, he still has a lot to learn about law. And while Harvey may seem like an emotionless, cold-blooded shark, Mike’s sympathy and concern for their cases and clients will help remind Harvey why he went into law in the first place. Mike’s other allies in the office include the firm’s best paralegal Rachel and Harvey’s no-nonsense assistant Donna to help him serve justice. Proving to be an irrepressible duo and invaluable to the practice, Mike and Harvey must keep their secret from everyone including managing partner Jessica and Harvey’s arch nemesis Louis, who seems intent on making Mike’s life as difficult as possible.

Having watched the Star Wars prequels recently, as you will know if you’ve read my last post, I can’t help but be reminded of Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship whenever I see Mike and Harvey together. This adds a plus to my love for the characters. I just find every character to be so realistic, and even though some may be a pain in the ass sometimes, there will always be a time when you like them, if not love them. And let’s just take a minute to appreciate the sass because everyone knows I love sass in my tv series and I’ve been served with this one.

Another thing I truly appreciate about this show is that you get hooked so easily ! The pilot is in my opinion one of the best I’ve watched in my life, and I have watched a lot, trust me. The only thing I am getting tired of in this tv show is the fact that some characters (mostly Jessica) keep bringing back the fact that they keep bringing back the fact that Mike is a fraud. It’s been 5 seasons guys, we got it. And please don’t act like you’re innocent.

The 100 season 3

100-season-3

It’s that time of the year again when all my favorite tv shows are back and I basically have something to look forward to all week. Most importantly, this week has been the first airing of the new season of my favorite show, which you may have heard of, the 100. I have been watching the show for about a year, that is to say when the second season came out and have been truly obsessed with it ever since.

Plot summary (from imdb) : 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth, humankind is living in space, residing in twelve space stations. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named « The Ark », where about 2,400 people live. Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death (« floating ») unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark’s life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared « expendable » and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again. The teens arrive on a beautiful planet they’ve only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. However they discover that not all humanity was wiped out. There are people on Earth who survived the war, called « grounders » by the 100. The teens quickly discover they are not welcome by the hostile grounders and must band together in order to survive.

One thing I absolutely adore about this show is that you never get bored. So many things happen all the time and you can notice the effects on the characters, who have amazing development throughout the seasons and I just can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen in the third season. Obviously, the first episode of the season only aired Thursday so I can’t tell you much about this season but I can tell great things are coming in the show and I can’t wait to see exactly what they have planned for us this season.

STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE TWO SEASONS OF THE SHOW

I won’t tell you about the first episode because some of you may not have watched it yet (if so, what are you doing with your life????) and I don’t want to spoil it. The only thing I can tell you is that it was really promising for the rest of the season, showing us what happened to the characters 3 months after Mount Weather, especially concerning Clarke and Jasper who appeared to be the ones the most transformed by the events, and introducing the rest of season with the right amount of suspense to keep us entertained and looking forward to the next episode and even the rest of the season. The trailer of the season showed how worried we should be about everything that’s coming towards us, because let’s be honest, one of the main thing this show is good at, is breaking our hearts. Hopefully, the season will be as good as they made it appeared to be, and I have no doubt it will be.

YOU CAN START READING AGAIN NOW

If you want to talk about the new episode or what you expect for the season, please feel free to come talk to me about it, mostly on my Twitter or Fan tumblr (which is mostly the 100 related at this moment obviously), or if you just have questions in general before beginning watching it, than I’ll be happy to help you ! 🙂

The Shannara Chronicles

The Shannara Chronicles

How long has it been since the last time I began watching a new show when its first aired? Far too long, that’s how long. I found out about Shannara through Vanessa Hudgens, I’m not gonna lie and I don’t regret it. I already knew Austin Butler because he played in a few shows I love so of course when I saw he played the main character of this new show, I just had to check it out.

The Shannara Chronicles is an adaptation of the books by Terry Brooks (which I haven’t read.. yet) and I always like book adaptations when they are turned into a tvshow. Funny enough, I rarely know about the books being adapted into a tv show but I always do when they are adapted into a movie so I always end up reading the books after the tv show. Given the few episodes from The Shannara Chronicles that have aired so far, I can tell that I’m gonna love the books. And I love that the tv shows are often different from the books because it means I get to discover it in another way once I pick up the book.

Synopsis : The Four Lands, normally a land of magic and peace, faces a threat beyond man: Demons. Banished ages ago, they were held back by a magical wall known as the Forbidding. Yet the source of that magic, the magical tree known as the Ellcrys, is dying, and thus the wall wanes. When the acolytes who tend to the tree are all killed, the wise Druid Allanon turns to Amberle, the last remaining disciple, to save the tree. Only she can take the seed of the elven tree to the faraway Bloodfire, to replant the Ellcrys and stop the Demons. To protect her, Allanon sends the young Wil Ohmsford, a descendant of heroes past. As the two youth head on a perilous journey, Allanon and the entire Elven Nation stand together to hold back the Demons and stop them from destroying the Four Lands. (from imdb)

I was actually surprised by how good the special effects and the quality in general are in the show, considering it’s an MTV tv show but you really find yourself in another world. I guess you could say it’s the same kind of universe than the Lord of the Rings one, which I have always been a fan of. Fun fact, I grew up wanting to be an elf, so I always love to watch movies or tv shows with elves in it haha. Obviously, I have only watched 4 episode so far so I’m still expecting some things but so far so good. I’m not a difficult person when it comes to tv shows but even my brother likes the show so far, and that’s something, trust me !

Concerning the characters and the cast, I am rather content with what they have offered us so far. I like to see that Emerle isn’t a cliché of the princess who feels better than everyone, and that she can take care of herself too. The only thing I’m worried about is the Emerle/Wil/Eretria trio – PLEASE DON’T PLAY THE LOVE TRIANGLE CARD ! I am so done with them, and this show could be so much more than that. The cast is for the most part unknown to me, except for Austin Butler and Manu Bennett so I found it nice to discover new talents, especially Poppy Drayton.

Hopefully, the show won’t disappoint me because I have huge expectation with it ! Give it a go while there are only a few episodes aired, that way you’ll be able to make up your mind without having to wait forever !
