Tempting Television

Here are my favorite TV shows and my thoughts on them:

Game of Thrones

 I watched game of thrones seasons 1 and 2 in around May. I fell in love with it after the first few episodes and Khaleesi quickly became my favorite character. I love her strength and passion and her ability to get what she wants. I also love her Dragons!!

Suburgatory

This is one of those shows I just watch because, it's there. It's interesting but, could be better. I think it's something to do with the main character being the same age so whatever she's 'going through' just doesn't seem very exciting.

Big Bang Theory

 This has got to be one of my favorite comedies. I'm a bit of a science nerd so, having that mixed with characters that are hilarious makes it VERY funny. My favourite characters are Sheldon and Leonard. I love  Sheldon's craziness and the way Leonard tries to deal with it.

New Girl


To be honest the only reason I watch it is because of Zoey. I love her as an actor because she's so excentric and crazy but, in a very down to earth way.

Pretty Little Liars


I've liked this show for a few years. Originally, Spencer's wardrobe was my main reason for watching it but, as the show has progressed I began to love the mystery and problems the girls and the other characters have managed to get themselves into. There is always something dramatic going on and that is what has kept me watching it. Well, that and the fact I want to know who killed Alison or whether she's still alive.

Melissa and Joey


 I love watching this show. It's something to do with the cheesiness and the fact that there are characters of all different ages and going through different things. And, you just know that Mel and Joey need to be together.

Teen Wolf

 I haven't seen the most recent season but, the first two I quite liked. I liked them because I loved the original 80s film and this adaptation takes it to a whole new level. I also like that it isn't all girls and love but it is encorperated with the relationships between Alison and Scott.


The Morganville Vampires (Web show)

 You can find out more information here: http://www.morganvilletheseries.com/
Not a TV show, but I have to say I've managed to read all these books and for some reason I loved them. I can't wait to see how the web show turns out and I am VERY excited.

Outfit Of The Day: DIY Crop Top




Today, I DIY-ed this crop top. I cut out the neck and sleeves and chopped off the bottom. Then I pinched the arm holes together and sewed some of the waste fabric to hold it together and voila. Underneath I'm wearing a Topshop bralet and then an Asos skater skirt.
My necklace was a gift and I've just left my hair down.

Then of course, on my feet, are some grey converse.

When I go out I will probably just throw on a grey hoody (Topshop) and take my usual slouch backpack from FatFace.
Thanks for Reading.

Wardrobe Fundamentals: My clothing essentials for the autumn

(Please click on pictures for links to sites)

Plain White Tee

My favorite is a plain white V-neck. It can be worn with scarfs, necklaces, with shorts legging skirts etc. It's very versatile and perfect for toning down bold prints.

This tee is from River Island and costs £12.00

Dark Denim Jeans (in your favorite cut)

Personally, my favorite are super skinny. Dark wash jeans are perfect because they can be made more formal and be worn casually.

These skinny dark wash jeans are from Hollister and cost £54.

Little Black Dress

Perfect for formal occasions or more casual if paired with bright colours. You can change styles every now again but the general idea is timeless. Perfect in form fitting, once you've found the perfect one you have it for life.

Topshop - £46

Knit Cardigan

A patterned one is perfect for autumn 2013, but a plain chunky knit one is timeless.

Boohoo.com - £18

A Jacket

A nice fitting jacket in a neutral tone is perfect to throw on over any outfit. I like ones with a bit of detail.

I love the detail on this jacket from Forever 21 for £29.75

Shopping Trip: My picks

 I went shopping but, as usual I had no money. Instead I used my phone to snap some pictures of things i liked to use as inspiration in the future or to make things if I get my hands on some fabrics.
I won't post prices or links because I didn't actually find them online and I didn't look at prices just the clothes themselves. But, the shops I mention are: 'Hollister', 'H&M', 'River Island' and 'Topshop'.


These skirts I found in 'Hollister' and 'H&M'. I love the detail on both! I love mini skirts, I like tucking baggy tops into them and wearing plain ones with more detailed tops and visa versa. 


These two outfits are from the 'Topshop' fitting room. The one on the left has an 'H&M' skirt but, other then that the rest of the clothes were from 'Topshop'. I loved the high-waist pin stripe jeans, they were extremely comfortable and quite flattering (not so much from that angle though.)



I loved the detail on the back of these two 'H&M' dresses, I also love the fabric of the play suit on the right.

It's such a shame and probably a good thing I had no money, otherwise my wardrobe would be overflowing. Thanks for reading.
