August Favourites 2017

It’s been a busy month. I’ve been studying a lot and haven’t had time to actually HAVE favourite things. But there a few item that stood out. Actually more than I expected. πŸ˜‰πŸ€˜πŸΌ

TV shows

I’ve watched this show almost in one sitting. “Friends from College” is about a group of 40-year-old who have been friends since they were at Harvard together. The only problem is that there is a huge secret between them. Their relationships with each other are broken, weird, contorted and at times absurd.

The cast is really good. Cobie Smulders, Keegan-Michael Key, Annie Parisse, Fred Savage, Jae Suh Park and Nat Faxon.

I adored Key and seeing this, gave me further confirmation that he is an extraordinarily talented comedian.

I really enjoyed it. Nothing out of the ordinary, but if you are in the mood for some light-hearted comedy with serious topics, this is for you.


Pod Save AmericaSomething else I never though I’d enjoy: podcasts. But I got so much into american politics that I HAD to start following “Pod Save America”.

Former speech writers from the Obama Administration Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett and former National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Vietor teamed up and created this wonderful podcast. They post bi-weekly on Monday and Thursday and they tackle political news, clearly explaining everything so that even someone who doesn’t live in America (like me) can understand what the hell is going on.

They also bring specialists, former government officials and activists that are trying to improve their country and are advocating in favor of important causes.

Their company, “Crooked Media” also produces podcasts like “Pod Save the World”, “Lovett or leave it”, “Pod Save the People” and “With Friends like these”.

Every single episode is informative, educational and the promotional commercials are hilarious. Jon Lovett makes me double up with laughter every time they talk about their “Game Of Thrones” watch parties!!! I’ll definitely keep on listening.

Here you can find the podcast on iTunes and here are 3 interviews on Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah,Β Chelsea Handler‘s talk shows.


August 22nd 2017

My parent went away for three days with all our extended family. 9 of them on a three-day trip to Florence.

I didn’t go because of my stupid exams, but I had the best days. I did whatever I wanted. Literally. Sure, I studied for 2 out of 3 of the days, but let’s not talk about that. I slept so little! I wanted to make the most out of the freedom I had. I ate what I wanted, danced around in my underwear at midnight and felt so happy and free.

I have previously talked about this but having such a hands-on extended family with completely different interests than me is not easy. Soul crushing, to be exact.

Anyway, I spent an entire day with my closest friend, we mocked crappy TV serie, watched “Game of Thrones”, predicted who would win at the Emmys and laughed so much. I truly had the BEST DAY EVER with her. Total freedom of being who I am with no oppression and containment. I hadn’t felt that content and happy in a long time.

I’ve talked about “Suits” in my July favourites and in the Suits 7 Mid season review and I LOVE IT. I am so obsessed with it! I’ve started following some people just as obsessed with it as I am and it’s been amazing. Every time I scroll throw my timeline, there are so many pictures of Donna and Harvey.

Basically heaven.

I absolutely adore the show! It’s full with empowering and badass women (like Jessica) and cool and witty dialogue. At times cheesy, I can’t deny it. But my favourite thing is Harvey and Donna’s relationship. They are so close and have a fantastic friendship but on top of that: an amazing sexual chemistry.

THEY ARE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER. OK? THEY ARE. PERIOD. Please Aaron Korsch, let them get together. I really want them to. Every time they are on screen together, I get goosebumps.

Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty are unbelievably good. I love them. And they’ve been friends for 20 years.



I have just realized there are no beauty items in this post… apparently I haven’t loved any particular product this month.

Let me know what you’ve been loving this months and if you are feeling down and want to rant, something you have hated!

hugs,

Georgia  ❀
