Jenna Coleman

I love Jenna Coleman.

Actually, to tell the truth, when she was cast to replace the adorable Karen Gillian on Doctor Who, I did not like her. Sorry Jenna.

But as soon as I saw her with Matt Smith and the lovely character she portrayed: I was in love. The chemistry she had with Matt was wonderful. Absolutely stunning. And even though she left Doctor Who, I started following her career. And her fashion appearances.

Let’s just say that from soap opera actress, Jenna turned into a true queen of the red carpet. Although the majority of what she wears is something I would NEVER go for, it is still magnificent.

I particularly love her in this picture from the premiere of Victoria, the ITV drama about Queen Victoria.

I love this look. It is definitely something I would wear and I did. Several times after seeing this photo. I absolutely ADORE IT!

So I want to share the product I use in order to re-create this warm and, at the same time, sultry makeup.

I wasn’t able to find the exact products her makeup artist used (This is her instagram page), but I tried to make it word with whatever I have.

I apply the gold/coppery creamy eyeshadow by Pupa in the shade 002 all over the lid, blending it up towards the brow.

So then I take the orange and light brown shade from the palette mixed together (they have no names. Sorry.) and apply them on top of the gold eyeshadow, blending them until I get the shade I want. Then I take the same two colours and I apply them on my lower lashes. And you can go as low as you want and make it as grungy as you want.

Just to give it a little bit more depth, you can put some of this dark brown Kiko “Smart Colour eyeshadow in 05  in the crease or (what I actually do most times), close to the lash line and blending it with the other colours. Also, just a tiny bit into the outer part of the lower lashes.

Lots and lots of mascara and then the lipstick! This lipstick is the KIKO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in 317 “Wine”.

As a little bonus, you can take some sparkly orange eyeshadow and put a bit in the inner corner in order to give it some “pizzazz” (I think it’s a word.).

So, this is my take on the look. I have tried to take a picture of the look on me, but it is shit and I don’t want to post it.

Also, I got inspired by the look Emma (who has the beauty channel EmmasRectangle on Youtube) did. So if you want to actually see it, head over to her channel and watch the amazing tutorial she did.

Hope you enjoyed this post. It’s the first time I did something like this and I’m not sure if the format is right for me.

Thanks for reading!

Pretty Little Liars – Spring Premiere 2017 – Season 7 episode 11 – “Playtime” Review

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

I have reviewed a couple of episodes (ep 8, ep 9 and ep 10) of the latest season of Pretty Little Liars and I had so much fun. This show unloads so much stuff on one single episode. It’s unbelievable.

Pretty Little Liars

I have been waiting for a long time for the show to come back and finally, I can get back into the trash. If you’ve read my other posts, you know that I heavily trash the show, even though I adore it. It’s so teen-angst. To get back into the show and to refresh my memory, I re-watched some of the old episodes, just to remind myself of all the nonsense that happened.

And it’s been great. To quickly recap: Noel Kahn was working with A.D, he is psychotic and got beheaded by an ax (which was stuck on the floor), Jenna pointed a gun at the girls and started shooting around. (Need I remind you that she is blind?), someone shot Spencer but as Jenna was about to pull the trigger on Spencer, Mary Drake knocked her over and while someone dragged away an unconscious Jenna, Mary revealed that SHE was Spencer’s mother. And happy with all this tragedy, the creators decided that Toby and his fianceé (whose name eludes me) had to get into a really bad car crash.

AND, in the last few seconds, it is revealed that Jenna didn’t know A.D. and wasn’t working for them. But now she is trapped (presumably) in a van with him/her.

And bear in mind that this happened in the last 10 minutes. SO MUCH INFORMATION TO GO THROUGH!

But it’s been almost a year since this episode…. Let’s not waste more time and let’s dive into it. The following things that you will read were written while watching the episode, so it’s my genuine reaction to all the SHIT that happened.

Right in the first two minutes the amount of information is ridiculous. Yvonne (that’s the name of Toby’s fiancée!!!) is in a medically induced coma, the liars find out about Toby and said something about Mary Drake. What I don’t know. It was so fast!

Also, Ezra comes back! In the last episode, his previous girlfriend and girl he wrote his book about, came back to life. Yes. THAT HAPPENED.

Hannah pinching Caleb to “check that he is real.”  *eye roll* COME ON. The entire conversation was a cheesy sentence after another. I wanted to puke.

Can we just talk for a minute about the fact that Alison is a teacher now? It’s absurd.

PRESENT TIME!


Hannah:“Did you talk about the wedding?”

Aria: “No, we didn’t.”

IT WAS THE ONLY THING YOU HAD TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT!!!!


This whole Spencer/Cop thing is just stupid. Why is he even here? What is his point?!? So annoying.

And as you can see on the right…. Who the fuck is this guy? Holden? Where are you coming from? What’s the point of you? Meaningless people seem to be the theme of this entire episode.


It seems that for once, Veronica told Spencer the truth! Mr. Hastings had another illegitimate child! This time with Mary. But he thought she was Jessica? And Mary was in the asylum so Veronica took the baby in and adopted her as her daughter. I feel so bad for Spencer. It was completely absurd, but I really felt sorry for her.

So after her meltdown and her mother’s confession, she decided to play A.D.’s game and went to see Toby. And had an emotional heart to heart. Blah blah blah.

Then some shit with Mona and Hannah and a Senator’s daughter.  *eye roll*

Sometimes these subplots are so boring and at the same time better than any shit the show can make up. Just like this tension between Emily, Paige and Alison. I don’t really care. And it’s getting pathetic.

Anyway, as Hannah prepares to stab the game A.D. sent them, a video appears on the screen. It’s them, digging up Alison’s husband.

And as the final scene, we see Jenna asking questions to someone off camera. Obviously A.D. She says “End Game” and…. that’s the episode.



Frankly, I expected more. I was all in for a ridiculous episode like the summer finale but this one wasn’t as much fun. I liked it, don’t get me wrong. It was cheesy, stupid, ridiculous, annoying (like Ezra and fucking Nicole… COME ON!) and magnificent.

I’ll definitely try to review episode after episode until the very end, but I’m starting to live again and I’m getting slightly better and I don’t know how much time I’ll actually have 😦

Let me know if you liked the episode and your thoughts on it. I’d love to discuss it with you! BYE!

Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale 2016 – Season 07 episode 10 – “The Darkest Knight” Review

ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the latest Pretty Little Liars episode. You have been warned!

I avoided Twitter for as long as I could. I hid the App in a “Utility” folder I never open and tried to forget about it.

Before I review this episode and make it the biggest thing ever, I need to make something clear. I love Pretty Little Liars because it is an “easy” tv show. Although there are powerful elements (that I will talk about in one of my future posts) to the show, it does not have the depth of series like Game of Thrones or True Detective.

It is a series that I personally watch to have fun and get into the lives of five teenager with complicated romances with perfect hair and makeup.

But this episode is something else. I have NEVER had this much fun while watching a PLL episode. I laughed out loud for ages. The following things that you will read were written whilst watching the episode, so it’s my genuine reaction to all the SHIT that happened.

PLL s07e10

Let’s begin right away with  brainstorming session with all the liars (minus Hannah) and Mona and Caleb which I think was shot so that they could introduce back Mona and call 911 to say they thought Hannah had been abducted.

PLL s07e10

Hannah is still keeping Noel Khan captive and she pull out a knife to torture him… A scene that I found a bit extreme and ridiculous… But comparing this with the shit that it is about to go down, is really nothing . One thing I have noticed, though: she is still fashionable and has ripped jeans on. Because STYLE is what’s important while torturing someone.

So she cut him and goes to DNA lab with Noel’s blood to prove that he is Mary Drake’s son. AND she calls Mona to help her! And she actually does help her! She finds the famous flash drive, but Hannah isn’t happy with that! She wants to frame Noel for everything that he did to her.

PLL s07e10

So she decides to come back! And since the show is called “Pretty Little Liars”, she lies to everyone. Both the police and her friends.

Caleb takes her home and then at one point there is the whole “I know you better than yourself” speech and he says and I quote: “You won’t admit that we’re meant to spend the rest of our lives together.”

And there is kissing and sex.

I am happy that they are back together, because I have to admit… They were my favourite couple! And I found the Caleb/Spener thing disgusting.

They leave Hannah and Caleb to have sex and they go to Alison’s house.

PLL s07e10

And after a few moments she announces that SHE IS PREGNANT!!! WHAAT!?! I had the feeling she was pregnant… So… I told you so.    🙂

And she kisses Emily. A few times.

The other liar that has problems is ARIA! Ezra is still in colombia and he is coming back! BUT NOT REALLY!!! BECAUSE NICOLE IS ALIVE!!! I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT! I SAID SO!

PLL s07e10

I felt sorry for Aria… Come on, her fiancé kissing another woman on national television. It’s funny and the same time depressing.

And the detective starts hitting on Spencer… Again. I’m like: I don’t even care anymore.

PLL s07e10

But the morning she goes to see Toby and she brings him a book in french and says some shit about love. And then…

Oh Honey GIF

 

Ok. This is one of my favourite things… She asks him if she can kiss him… I laughed so much and said “Oh Honey!” a bunch of time, How I Met Your Mother style.

 

Spencer isn’t the only one with an eventful morning. There is some tension between Emily-Alison-Paige.

PLL s07e10

Also, Emily is like “I woke up like this” Beyoncé style… SO ANNOYING.

Anyway, the tests come back and Noel isn’t Mary Drake’s child!! Surprise surprise! I feel like with all of this relationship stuff, the secret child’s identity is meaningless.

They decide to go question Noel and they somehow manage to sneak away from the cops leaving a recording of them talking so they won’t get suspicious. After 7 seasons, we know the Rosewood police force is basically shit, but COME ON!!

And Noel has escaped! Obviously.

PLL s07e10

And Caleb and Mona were fooled by another girl pretending to be Jenna! SHE GOT AWAY!!

And as soon as they arrive to the place A.D. told them to when he/she texted them, who do they see? MARY FLIPPING DRAKE!

And there are speakers around the house! So Jenna can talk to them! So obviously they go upstairs and find weird typical “I’m a serial killer” stuff but Emily left the phone up there! COME ON!

Oh, and then the psychotic version of Noel Khan appears together with Jenna! And she has a gun!

PLL s07e10

But Emily and Hannah hit Noel and he falls unto his weapon and his head gets cut off from his body. AHAHAHAHAHA. COME ON!! IT WAS RIDICULOUS!

With Spencer “Can I kiss you?”, this was definitely the highlight of the episode.

BUT Jenna finds them and pulls the trigger, hitting Spencer on the chest.

PLL s07e10

Fortunately, Jenna gets tackled by Mary Drake and just after a few seconds after the other girls arrived, she tells Spencer that SHE is actually her mother. AAHAAHAHAHAAHAH. SPENCER IS MARY DRAKE’S SECOND SECRET CHILD!

And in the next scene we find out that Toby and Yvonne had a car crash!! COME ON!!!! HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE!?!?!

As final scene, we see Jenna on the floor and she asks some unknown person if they shot Spencer. Does that mean that Jenna didn’t shoot her? WHAT? I’m so confused…

Anyway, I had so much fun watching this. HILARIOUS!!!!

I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen on 7B… From what I have heard, the series will return on April 2017 and I am super sad about it. ALMOST A WHOLE YEAR!

Nevermind, I hope you had some fun reading this. If you have seen the episode, let me know what you think about it in the comments.
