September 2017 TV Premiere – Opinions

I’m a bit late with this… I haven’t been particularly present on the blog community recently. I’ve had two great month and I was busy actually living my life.

But I enjoy writing about TV and I want to catch up on all the reviews I didn’t do and the beauty hauls I haven’t put together. (I did take the pictures. Now I’m missing the names of the product and I can’t seem to be able to get up, get the makeup and write the names down. I’m lazy.)

Anyway, these past two months have been amazing for Tv! So many great shows and so many old obsession making a comeback!

Let’s get into it!

  • Victoria ITV Jenna ColemanVICTORIA (ITV)

I absolutely loved this second season, great moments between the Queen and Prince Albert, great storylines involving feminism, a woman in power, loss, grief, medicine, inventions and more.

I really liked season 1, but I think I’ve enjoyed season 2 more. This year, we already knew the characters and the climate of the Victorian age, but they kicked it up a notch. The famine in Ireland and the trip to France deeply explore the terrible issues of the era.

On top of that, they dealt with homosexuality and the secrecy of it. The show experimented with different directorial choices and I truly appreciated it.

On top of that, Lord M broke Britain’s heart and the show’s viewers will never forget it.

  • You're the worst poster s4YOU’RE THE WORST (FXX)

I adore this show. I know it may seem bad, but it shows the inner me. The side that is wild, with no filters and restrictions. Although I am truly sad about Jimmy and Gretchen’s break up, it’s still funny seeing them navigate the world as single people again.

To be honest, the show isn’t as good as its first and second seasons. As I’m writing this, there are only 3 episodes left before the finale. Having said that, I feel like this season has been a little bit stuck. The characters haven’t evolved that much and it seems like the show is piling on as much crazy shit as they possibly can. Without really going forward.

Still, if they don’t re-new it for a 5th season, I will be sending FXX a series of angry and profanity-filled emails.

  • Better Things FX PosterBETTER THINGS (FX)

Even though I feel that they made it as absurd and as weird as they could, this show has some amazing gems.

The episodes are centred on Sam, her three daughters and the crazy things that life throws at them. It’s very explicit and the daughters treat their mother to an attitude that I would never allow. Not to me and not to everybody else. They are so disrespectful! I have the urge of slapping them in the face.

But just like in “You’re The Worst”, Sam isn’t afraid of other people’s opinions and her angry rants about sexuality and feminism are GREAT!

There are amazing monologues and Pamela Adlon is a fantastic actress. It’s quite explicit and raw but I’m really excited to see the last two episodes!

Also, on Oct. 19th, they announced they have renewed “Better Things” for a 3rd season!!! YAY!!

  • Brooklyn nine nine s5 poster.jpgBROOKLYN NINE NINE (FOX)

I will write this entire section mostly in all-caps because it’s been my obsession, I’m so excited and I love it so much.



I got my closest friend hooked on this show and we legitimately spent an entire day watching episodes together. Not even joking. Best day ever.

This 5th season has been incredible. So funny and full of spectacular character developments. Especially Jake.

The Halloween episode is probably one of the best episodes of a comedy show that I’ve seen in a long time. In every season there is a Halloween episode that is centred about a heist that will determine who, in the precinct, is the “Ultimate Detective / Genius”.

It’s so rare that a show in its 5th season is still going strong, but Brooklyn Nine Nine never disappoints.

  • this is us season 2 posterTHIS IS US (NBC)

I reviewed the first episode of this second season at length, so I’m not going to say too much about it here.

The show is still great, the characters are so well-written and although there hasn’t been that much crying on my part, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Nonetheless, there are still some things that piss me off and clichés I wish they hadn’t done, but I’ll keep watching. There is no doubt in that.

  • modern-family-s9 2.jpgMODERN FAMILY (ABC)

What can I say about this show: it’s a staple, it’s iconic. A classic.

The show is still great, the dynamics between the characters still relevant. What more can I say other than “I love you, Modern Family.”?

  • Grey's anatomy PosterGREY’S ANATOMY (ABC)

Ehm… Well… I’m not a person that likes pointing out the negative things but this one deserves it.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING?!?! What are these absurd storylines? Come on!!!! From Owen’s sister randomly being alive, to Amelia’s stupid stupid stupid tumor and to Maggie and Jackson having a thing, I really don’t know how the show is still on air.

I took it to Twitter while watching one of the episodes from this season and I noticed that I hadn’t tweeted positive things about the latest Grey’s Anatomy episode since 2014. That’s sad.

One things after another, they demolished the show. Thankfully, they didn’t damage too much Meredith’s character, otherwise I won’t be here talking about it.

I’ll probably keep watching every once in a while, when I’m in the mood for a soap opera with doctors.

I’ve recently watched the 300th episode and although a bit mismatched, they paid tribute to all the major characters that have left the show and I loved it. Also, Jackson’s speech made m tear up.

  • will and grace.jpgWILL AND GRACE (NBC)


I was super shocked because I didn’t think a show like “Will and Grace” was going to be so political.

Right from the first episode, they throw joke after joke (mostly insult after insult) towards Donald Trump and the current administration! I loved it! The fidget spinner and russian dictionary joke in episode one is one of my favourites!! And let’s talk about the hat with “Make America Gay Again”!! Absolutely adored it!

In just 6 episodes, they talked multiple times about the current political climate in America, the struggles of being openly gay in the country, the appreciation young people need to have in regards of those who fought for their rights and how stupid conversion camps are. Speaking of which, the Mike Pence portrait in the background literally made my day. SO FUNNY!!!

I truly appreciate when a show explains and takes time to explore such subjects. Tv is also meant to be educational and I believe “Will and Grace” is doing it right.


Even if it started really well with guest host Ryan Gosling, the following hosts haven’t been that impressive (aside from Kumail Nanjiani, obvs).

The political commentary is still very much relevant, but I feel like they have hit a bit of a rough spot in these past weeks. I hope it’ll get better.

I’ll keep watching, especially the parts with the amazing Kate McKinnon, Pete Davison, Leslie Jones and obviously Weekend Update.


That’s it from me! At least for today! Hope you liked it and let me know your thoughts on any of the shows I’ve mentioned: I’d love to hear your opinions.





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 deathly hallows part 1” with my sister. Today is the day the last chapter “19 years later” of the seventh book takes place. And we were so excited! We talked about Harry Potter for the entire morning, sharing theories and remembering fondly about the previous books and movies.

Anyway, let’s get into it! For my September goals I’d like to:

  • Start my new year at Uni without falling back into my dark place

Last year, I was supposed to start my second year at Uni but when the time came, I was so emotionally fragile, the thought of going to Venice made me want to cry in dispair. And this year I have more responsibility, I have a job (kind of, I’m teaching English 3 hours a week) and tutoring. I already feel the pressure, but I can’t give up like a did last year.

I really can’t.

  • Watch the Emmys on September 17th

The “Emmy Awards” is my favourite award show and I’ll be live tweeting like a crazy person. I’m currently catching up on all the shows I haven’t seen yet and it’s been amazing. I have broadened my orizon and watch show I nomally wouldn’t.

So I’d like to complete this challenge.

  • Wear Makeup Everyday

IMG_7103 - OK

It might seem silly, but my mother gave me this advice in order to get better. When getting out of bed seemed an enourmous efford, she told me: “I know it’s hard. But get up, shower and put some makeup on. Try to get out of the house for even an hour. You’ll feel better.”

It wasn’t like this. She forced me. She gave me shopping lists to do every day. Most of the time… I got out of the house without a single hint of makeup, my pyjama hidden under the coat. But I slowly got better.

This months, I haven’t worn it that much. Mostly because I stayed in. But I can’t go back. I have to do it this time.

  • Read more books


So far, I’ve read 35 books this year. Not too bad. I’ve completed my goodreads goal and recently set another one. So I want to push myself, read more diverse books and learn more about the world through the stories.

I want to appreciate books more and espand my knowledge of the world of literature. And of course a couple of nice chick-flicks.

Hope you liked my September Goals. Huge thanks to Victoria for the inspiration. I had so much fun writing this!

I’d like to know what your september goals are! Please leave a comment and let me know. That’d mean the world to me!




P.s. This post uploads itself on the 4th on September and it’s the date of my exam!!! I am so ready for all of this to be over! Let’s hope I’ll pass it!

September 2017 TV Premiere

Weirdly enough, September and October are my favourite months. New seasons come out, exciting pilots make their debut on televisions and there are the Emmys. (Just as a reminder, September 17th.)

What could be better? I am literally jumping up and down from happiness. So many shows are back, so many new stories, characters, plot twists… This is heaven.

I’m going to cheat a little bit and insert in this list a show that came back for its 2nd season on Sunday August the 27th on ITV: VICTORIA

Starring Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria, it describes her life on the thrones. If you want to know more, there is a link on the title of each show that goes to one of my reviews. (Or rather, incredibly long rants and freakouts).

Without further ado, here is the list of my shows coming back on September:

September 6th: YOU’RE THE WORST

You're The Worst

This show is coming back for its fourth season and I LOVE IT. I literally cannot wait to see what is going on with Jimmy and Gretchen. The season 3 finale left me completely shocked and I have been wondering for months what will happen next.

Wednesdays at 10:30/8:30C PM on FXX

September 14th: BETTER THINGS

Another FX show and this is about an actress who is a single mother trying to deal with her three children and her crazy mom. I watched the first season when it came out and although it has nothing new or particular, it resonated with me. I saw myself in them. It’s created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon, who also stars in it.

If you’re looking for a fun comedy, check it out!

Thursdays at 10/9c on FX

September 26th: BROOKLYN NINE-NINE

Brooklyn Nine Nine

At the beginning, I thought this didn’t have much depth. It felt like a stupid and ridiculous comedy that you watch only to give your brain a break. But it is actually so funny. And socially relevant. It talks about race, discrimination, homophobia, prejudice and police brutality… while making you laugh. It is created by Micheal Schur, who was also behind “The Office” (US) and “Parks and Recreation.”.

We left off at the end of season 4 with Jake and Rosa in a difficult situation and I really want to know what the writers have written!

Moreover, after seeing Captain Holt’s dog Cheddar, I fell in love with Welsh Corgi. THEY ARE SO CUTE! Google them!

Tuesdays at 9.30/8.30c on FOX

This Is Us - Season 1September 26: THIS IS US

I don’t want to talk about this. I’m going to cry. And I have cried for 18 episodes plus the talk at the end with the actors. I’ve never been more devastated in my entire life.

It’s an amazing show, VERY cheesy some times (especially how Jack and Rebecca met. Probably the only thing I did not like on the show) but it makes me feel EVERYTHING. The day after I watch it, I have a horrible headache because of the crying. It rips me into a million pieces.

Highly recommend it. You won’t regret it.

Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC

September 27th: MODERN FAMILYmodernfamily_s6_si_l


Still spectacular after 8 seasons, Modern Family is back! I have seen every single episode of this show at least 10 times. Whenever I feel a bit down or I want to watch something familiar, this is what to turn to. Absolutely magnificent.

My sister and I have religiously watched 3 days a week when we were having lunch alone. I know it like the back of my hand and I’m never tired of it. It’s just so funny and deep and at times sad. It just gives me warm feelings of happiness and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have this show in my life.

Wednesdays at 9/8c on ABC

September 28th: Grey’s Anatomy


A show I truly loved and now watch only to see how ridiculous it is going to get season after season. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE Grey’s Anatomy! But after most of the original cast’s departure, it hasn’t been the same.

I’m not really sure what they are doing with most storylines, but I’ve been watching it for years and it’s a ritual! A tradition!

I literally don’t remember what happened on previous season finale, but amen! I’ll catch up eventually!

On Thursdays at 10/9c on ABC

September 28th: Will & Grace

Immagine correlata

I hadn’t watched “Will and Grace” until this year. I was 2 years old in 1998 and I highly doubt there were showing it here in Italy. Anyway, WHAT A SHOW!

I can’t believe how socially advanced it was and how much it did to the LGBT community. It was one of the first (if not THE first) show in America to have an openly gay man as lead actor. And the cameos! Ellen, Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Britney Spears, Matt Damon and more!

I love that it is recorded in front of a live audience like “Friends” because it gives it so much more life and character. I am not afraid they’ll ruin the original show (like it happened for Gilmore Girls, according to some people) and I truly can’t wait for present-day jokes and pop culture references! So happy!

Airs on Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC

Immagine correlataSeptember 30th: Saturday Night Live

I wasn’t really into it until this year and the wonderful election season. Maybe because they talked about people I didn’t know or I didn’t understand the comedy.

I still don’t get why they find a lot of the jokes funny, but it is great political satire. I feel head over heels in love with Kate McKinnon (nominated for an Emmy as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series) and Alec Baldwin (their most notable characters include Hillary Clinton, Kellyanne Conway and AG Jeff Session for Kate; and Donald Trump for the magnificent Baldwin).

I am sure I’ll watch it religiously every Sunday (bloody time zones, I have to wait the day after to see it).

On Saturdays on NBC

Hope you like this! Maybe there are more, but these are the ones I’m most excite about! As always, let me know if there are any shows I should watch!


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.

Jenna Coleman Victoria Screening London 2016.jpg

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

Jenna Coleman Victoria Screening London 2016 2.jpg

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.

IMG_6884(1) - Copia  Arrows.jpg

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!


Georgia 🙂 ❤
