What I Watched: Aug / Sept 2017.

Can you believe that we are officially into Autumn already?? It feels like this year is flashing by but I must say that I am LOVING the changing of the colours and the cooler weather. I am an Autumn baby so I've never been a fan of the warmer months and Autumn means that Christmas is nearly here, whoop! 

Anyway onto the reason for this post which is my monthly 'What I Watched'. I haven't posted one since July because I've just not been watching any films if I'm honest. I've got stuck into Game Of Thrones now so movies have taken a backseat for a while. I thought I'd post this tiny list (aka two items) just to keep up with the tradition of posting them. Hopefully, when I've done with GOT (another season) I'll fit some more movies in!

Alex took me to Kingsman: The Golden Circle on my birthday and I can honestly say it was amazing! The first movie was a complete surprise because I didn't expect to enjoy it at all, but I loved it. I've seen the first one about 3-4 times now, so I obviously wanted to go and see the sequel and I wasn't disappointed. Even though Julianne Moore's villain was annoying (even more so than Samuel L Jackson's) I prefer this one to the first movie. I love that it carried on from the first and all of the same cast were in it with the addition (obviously) of several other members. I like Channing Tatum but I don't think his character was really needed in this, it felt a bit like he was just in it to add a star name. I did enjoy the addition of Pedro Pascal though (hello GoT), he added some good comedic moments for sure.
I can't wait to watch this again. It was fab! 9/10.

After my GoT binge, I decided to watch Me Before You again as it stars the amazing Emilia Clarke. I've seen this one before and I did quite like it. It made me cry again the second time around which I think says something about the actors portraying the two main characters.
It's not to everyone's taste, but there's no pleasing some! 7/10.

And that ladies and gents is all I've watched in two months. It's a sad little list, I know. But I'm hoping to get some movies watched this month, especially since Halloween is creeping up on us!

What have been watching lately?

The TV Show TAG - 2017.

I've seen this little TV Tag floating about on some of my fave blogs and as I've not done one in a while I thought I'd give it a go. I love TV shows (and I mean LOVE them, even more than movies) and I'm a big fan of tags so obviously I wanted to post it. I feel like tag posts really help you to get to know the person behind the blog without being a nosey bugger, ha! 

So here is my take on the TV TAG:

1. Favorite Show(s)?

  • My Mad Fat Diary
  • Supernatural
  • Bones
  • Castle
  • Rizzoli & Isles
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Moonlight
  • Charmed
  • Roswell
  • Gilmore Girls
  • One Tree Hill
  • Game of Thrones
  • The OC
  • Timeless
  • Ugly Betty
  • Will & Grace
(and a tonne more, I just can't think of them all right now).

2. Favorite Genre?
I tend to like drama shows more than anything. Also teen shows like OTH and The OC. Comedy shows are also up there with my faves. 

3. Least Favorite Show?
Stuff like Peep Show and Monty Python. I just don't have that type of humour.

4. Most Rewatched Show/Favorite Show To Binge Watch?
Supernatural (I've seen seasons 1-3 at least 10 times each), MMFD (with only 3 seasons, I've seen the entire show at least 5 times) and Bones.

5. Do You Prefer Watching Things Week-By-Week or Binge-Watching?
Binge watching all the way! I get bored waiting for a new episode each week. Chilling out, laid on my bed with a blanket on and a cuppa on the go, bingeing on a full season a night is perfect.

6. Favorite Television Characters?
I have loads, so I'll just say my faves from each show.

  • Rae / Finn and Kester.
  • Dean, Sam, Cas and Gabriel.
  • Brennan, Booth, Hodgins, Wendell and Angela.
  • Castle, Ryan, Esposito & Beckett.
  • Rizzoli, Isles, Frankie & Corsack. (Also, Barry Frost. RIP Lee).
  • Buffy, Willow, Spike, Xander and Giles.
  • Mick & Kate.
  • Piper, Phoebe, Leo and Grams.
  • Max, Michael & Maria.
  • Lorelai, Jess, Luke, Kirk and Marty.
  • Peyton, Brooke, Nathan, Haley & Jame Lucas Scott.
  • Samwell, Jon, Arya, Poddrick, Tyrion & Brienne.
  • Seth & Ryan.
  • Rufus, Wyatt and Lucy.
  • Betty, Daniel and Justin.
  • Will, Grace, Karen, Jack (duh).

7. Favorite Television Ships?
Leyton, Rinn, B&B & Caskett.

8. Show You Could Never Get Into?
Heroes. I really wanted to like it but there was so much to keep track of, it became more of a task than a good watching experience.

9. Show You Fell In of Love With?
My Mad Fat Diary. Rae's story of mental health, self-harming and her attitude towards herself really hit a nerve with me and I hold her up there as my ultimate favourite character because she's more like me than anyone I've ever known.

10. Cancelled Too Soon?
Ben & Kate. Moonlight.

11. Guilty Pleasure Show?
Uhm....I'll go with The X Factor. I cannot stand the way that it is fixed and I can't stand a majority of the judges but I adore music and hearing everyone put on their performances is amazing.

12. What Are You Currently Watching?
I'm currently trying to catch up on Game of Thrones. I only started watching it at the beginning of September and I'm currently on season 6 and I love it.

Let me know if you decide to do the tag, I'd love to have a nosey!

Kylie Jenner Birthday Edition Liquid Lipsticks DUPE??

As a budget blogger I have had to resist the urge to buy anything Kylie Jenner related. As much as it pains me not to own her liquid lipsticks (they look amazing!) I just can't justify spending that much money on one product. So I did a bad thing and went online to find some dupes. I know a lot of people aren't fond of buying dupes, or 'fake' makeup, from places like eBay and Amazon, but I saw these and couldn't resist.

As you can see this is an absolute rip off of Kylie's Birthday Edition set of mini liquid lipsticks. The packaging, the font and the design is almost identical. I haven't owned anything by Kylie so I can't compare the quality of these to hers, but I just wanted to give these a go and for what I paid I wasn't too bothered if they were shit.
