October 2017 Fall Premiere

In a couple of days it will be October and this can only mean one thing: another round of amazing tv show premieres. And this months is just as good as September. I am still so upset that in the last post I forgot to add BBC's "Doctor Foster". I saw it trending on the [...]

5 Stand-up Comedy Specials on Netflix You Should Watch

Before signing up to Netflix, I wasn't really into Stand-up comedy. I had seen a couple of them, but I'd never thought I would find them funny. But as soon as I realized that there were A LOT of specials on Netflix, I started watching. Some of them have been bad, comedy that I did [...]

I did it!

I passed my english exam. I've literally just found out! I ran to my mom sobbing and mumbling: "I passed the exam! I got a 28/30!" After that, I stood there for 10 minutes sheding litres and litres of tears. My mom and I talked some more, about my uni life and the choices I [...]

69th Primetime Emmy Awards 2017

So, the Emmys happened exactly a week ago and as I expected, it was THE BEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR Writing this post took me ages! I watched the red carpet on the E! News YouTube page and I wanted to watch the actual show on TV, but here it wasn't transmitted with the original [...]

MAC’s Instagram Favourites

I've been toying with this idea for a while. I've been following makeup brand's Instagram accounts for a while now and they post incredibly pictures of different looks. Most of them are too polished and fake. Don't get me wrong. When people completely transform their faces and conform to the same standard that makes them [...]

Hugging

Today my mom hugged me. And not in a congratulatory "Happy Birthday" or "Happy New Year" way. We hadn't hugged like that since that morning in high school, when I basically had a breakdown in the bathroom. This time, we stumbled upon each other in the kitchen and she hugged me. So of course, I've [...]

The Night Of – First Impressions

I've been wanting to get to this show for quite some time but other thing came in the way. HBO is famous for its heavy-themed and dark shows and this does not disappoint. I knew very little about "The Night Of", I didn't know the actors and even the plot was unfamiliar to me. I [...]

Tears Streaming Down Your Face

It's definitely back. My issues are back in full swing. I haven't had such bad days in a long time. And the rage. I am angry. All the time. The following may or may not be a few of the reasons. Uni has started and I haven't had the courage to attend any class. Next [...]

FX’s “Atlanta” – Review

I just finished watching the FX serie Atlanta. And I have to say that I really really liked it. He was extremely innovative, creative and so fascinating. Created, produced and written Donald Glover, this show is unapologetically black. It's not written to make black culture more accessible to white people, like many other shows on [...]

Big Little Lies – First Impression

I've just finished watching HBO's "Big Little Lies" as part of my ongoing series of "shows I need to see before the Emmys" and I loved it. Starring Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Reese Witherspoon, it's based on the namesake book written by Liane Moriarty. Before watching the pilot, I knew very little about it. [...]

Trouble at Uni, exams and breakdowns

I don't even know where to start. Basically I've been studying for a months and a half for absolutely NOTHING. A couple of weeks ago, I logged into my uni account to book my english exam. And I made a surprising discovery. Back in June I wrote this post about the fact that I didn't [...]

My favourite night in the world falls on September 17th this year. THE most exciting day for any TV lover like me. THE EMMYS And this one is special: Stephen Colbert is hosting. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE him. I religiously watch "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" every single day. Along with all the [...]

Thirteen Reasons Why – REVIEW

Attention! The following post contains spoilers on ALL the episodes of "Thirteen Reasons Why" and sensitive topics such as sexual assault and suicide. You've been warned! I've heart so much about this show. Both positive and negative. I haven't read the book yet. I promised myself I would have read the book before starting the [...]

September Goals 2017

I saw this wonderful post by Victoria (Doodles and Scraps) about her August Wrap-up and the goals she has set for the months of September. So I decided to use this as inspiration for my post. It's the 1st of September as I am writing this. I've spent the morning watching "Harry Potter and the [...]

100th Post! – Emilia Clarke

In honour of season 7's finale which aired last Sunday, I wanted to shed a light on Emilia Clarke and her wonderful makeup. She is such a wonderful actress and has always promoted equal pay for men and women in the cinematic industry. In an interview she said: "I have mascara on my eyes and [...]
