TV Shows

Oh my god. I am SO EXCITED about all of these shows, you guys.

Billboards for The Last Ship were all over NYC when I was there last weekend, so I definitely had to check out what it was all about when I got home, and man that trailer totally reeled me in.

And then — *FLAILS* — Girl Meets World is happening!! I’ve known about this show for a long time now, but it’s finally going to be airing!! I hope it doesn’t disappoint because I couldn’t be more excited.

And, seriously…Finding Carter? I’m hooked already and I’ve only seen the trailer. I’m a sucker for dramas like that, so I know it’ll probably be a new favorite of mine.



Iggy Azalea. If you haven’t heard of this breakout hip hop star by now, then you’ve been living under a rock! Her most famous songs are obviously Fancy and Problem, her duet with Ariana Grande, but have you listened to her album? I did last week and I have to say that it’s pretty good! The songs I’m currently loving are: Change Your Life, New Bitch, and Work.

Scarecrow by Alex & Sierra. I’ve been obsessed with this hipster duo since their very first audition on The X Factor, and I’m so happy that they are finally starting to release their own music! This is their first single and I love it. (Spotify link)

Chandelier by Sia. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but I’m really into this song lately. (Spotify)

 Sirens by Cher Lloyd. My current favorite song! I can’t get enough of this one. (Spotify)

  1. That mushroom pasta is making me hungry, but it’s breakfast time!! What’s wrong with me??

  2. Oh, The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley looks interesting. (and the blurb says it’s “A partly graphic novel”!). And Gracefully Grayson!!! I’m really excited about that book 🙂

    • Yeah, I was intrigued by that, too! I’m not a huge fan of graphic novels in general, but I like regular novels that have a little bit of illustration, so I hope it’s like that 🙂

  3. I can’t wait for Finding Carter! I saw a trailer for it in the movie theater and immediately went home to watch it again on youtube. I’m a sucker for stuff like that; I just hope it’s not like DRAMADRAMADRAMA and there’s a good storyline to it.

    Thanks, by the way. I’m very hungry now 😉

  4. Iggy Azalea is the new go-to whenever I need to bring up my energy. I love a lot of her more recent stuff, I think it’s a lot better than what she did in the Glory era but I do really love My World! I think it’s one of her best, honestly. And when I first heard Chandelier, I totally wasn’t into it at all but now it’s really starting to grow on me!

    And oy, too many food pictures! I seriously just had dinner but now I want to eat all over again! 🙂
